    Try as they might, no one else can see the Pidgey up above the lights. In fact, now that Dave looks for it again, it seems to have continued it's flight.

    OOC: Important question, following road south or trying to cut through the district on the other side of the park?

    Forfeiting the roll. I roll at -2. I won't even try.


    Chuck follows behind the group, lost in his thoughts, guiding Ponyta by its reins. The numerous beeps from the Pokedex activity wake him up. He decides to scan some too. "I am sorry." he says "I haven't properly introduced myself yet. My name is Chuck. I am a ranger from Unova region. This is Firemane."

    The five of you look damn impressive surrounded by pokemon, flaming and otherwise. From the road you can't actually see any shops that would sell anything. In fact, most of the buildings seem to be condos, offices, and diners. Except for the Courier's Office, which is a round building surrounded by bike racks that sits between two skyscrapers. The five of you enter the front door and before you is an older, plump woman absently petting an Aipom. She says, "Welcome to the Dusk Island Courier's Office. How can I help you?"

    "Oh, you mean the S.S. Caroline? Wonderful! I'll take those packages," she says as she gestures to a drop box to your right. Once everyone has dropped off their packages she adds, "And here's ^100, the standard rate Captain Neil pays." Each of you are handed a small card with a black strip on one side and a smiling Meowth on the other. These cards are often used instead of cash because they can be reloaded and used like cash at most places. "Would you kids be able to do me a favor? We're a little short-staffed at the moment and we have some deliveries that need to be done today. We'll pay you ^150 each." Before you answer the Aipom has 6 packages stacked on the counter. Each of them has a serial number, but you can tell the only difference between numbers is the last digit. From 1-6, which number will you pick?

    OOC:

    These numbers have pre-planned destinations and corresponding circumstances. First come first serve.

    "Tell me where number 5 needs to go and I'll take it there." He scans the Aipom.

    "By the way, before we leave, let's get together and scan each others pokemon. This is probably a good time to introduce you all to sybaris." Collin offers as he releases his trapinch.

    Blake scans the Aipom once he's relieved of his package, and scans Sybaris once the Trapinch is released. Scanning the six packages there, Blake says, "Hmm... well, I'll take number 3, then. Where's it needed?"

    Waving at Chuck as the man heads out, he nods, saying, "Likewise."

    "Thank you ma'am. I will go immediately."

    True to his word, Collin takes his package and departs at once, waving to his comrades as he goes. "If you want to split the cost of a campground with me, meet me back here in two hours."

    Blake nods, saying, "Yeah, sounds like it shouldn't be too hard to find. Alright then... Celeste, let's go. It was nice meeting you guys!" He waves to the others in the group before taking the package and heading out and down around the loop, making his way towards the central path and keeping an eye out for any Pokemon to scan.

    Blake will head along the loop to the west, making his way around(and through the boardwalk market) until he reaches the casino district.

    Your route is fairly boring but the quiet feels peaceful after such a long trip. A few people stop and stare at Firemane while you walk, but no one approaches you. The streetlights do a great job keeping the darkened city lit, to the point that you could forget you're outside.

    As you walk, however, you notice a scurrying sound in an alley. A moment of curiosity from Firemane and the alley is lit with her glow. Inside you see half a dozen small spiders fleeing the light. You're just able to scan one before they disappear into a grate of some sort. Slightly disturbed by the Spinarak, you continue along your way.

    You reach the specified shop not too long after. A sign in the window says that they close at 5:00 PM, but according to your P-Gear it's 4:55 PM. You enter and man looks up from his desk to you and then to a clock on the wall. "Look mister, don't know if I can help you in 5 minutes, but-" He stops as he sees the delivery and a smile breaks across his face. "I'll be damned, c'mon in, kid." He offers you ^150 in cash for the package and before you go he adds, "Hey, you wanna battle? We can have a little wager if you want, not like I got anything here that needs to be done."


    Collin:

    Quick to get the job done and over with you briskly walk through the park, Sybaris close to your heels. You pass by several gardens and statues and even a small pond. A glance at the pond reveals a trio of Ducklett bathing themselves. They're easy enough to scan and after that you continue towards the towering mall ahead of you.

    Now much closer than before, you can see that the river actually flows under it, through a myriad of supports and arches. The building reaches at least 50 storeys high and it seems to hum with electric power. The amount of lights decorating it make it almost painful to look at directly, even in this faux-midday light. Pressing through the doors you're greeted with a smile and breeze of recycled air. There's a pleasant, orange flavored smell to it. A large sign indicates that this is the Directory and Returns floor. You can see walls of elevators and stairwells leading up to the other floors. A particular set of red elevators seemed to be direct to the Pokecenter and back. All in all, it looked busy.

    You exit out to the north park and see much of the same as the south version. All gardens, benches, and fountains. A battle between a Rattata and a Pichu is occuring off in the distance, but neither trainer seems particularily concerned.

    You continue northward and eventually you find the Gym nestled between a large Arena and the local Trainer's Academy. Most of the streetlights here are dimmer, giving the Gym a shadowy appearance. Once inside a trainer speaks to you, "Hi, would you like to challenge the Dusk Island Gym, or-" she stops when she sees the package you're carrying and adds, "Oh! Perfect." She pays you ^150 in cash and takes the package. "Hey, it's been dead in here, wanna battle? You beat me and you can join the Gym."

    5:05 PM


    Blake & Dave:
    Spoiler
    Show
    You both leave the Courier's Office together, your Pokemon following briskly. Dave heading for the Daycare and Blake taking the circuitous route to the Casino District. Along the way you pass a hospital. Not a pokecenter, but an actual hospital for people. This is the cornerstone of the Residential District and you can see houses everywhere to the south of you.

    You both continue walking, time slipping by. Twenty minutes in, you pass by the Daycare. A large house made of logs that is fenced off from the surrounding greenhouses. A little girl sits outside playing with a small puppy-like pokemon. You're dex feature tells you it's a Lillipup as Dave and Nosey split off from Blake and Celeste.

    Dave:

    You enter the house and are greeted by a smiling old man. "Welcome to the daycare, would you like to-" He stops as he sees the package and then types something into a computer and prints off a similar cash card to the one you were paid earlier. "There's ^150 for yeah. You have a nice day now." As you leave the little girl pipes up, "Hey mister, wanna battle? I got some money from doing chores."

    4:30 PM

    You leave Dave and Nosey behind and you contine you walking along the road northward. Soon you arive at the Boardwalk Market again and it's much the same as it was an hour and a half ago. People still offer strange services and items for pokemon. You could swear you see someone selling an amputated claw that speeds up your pokemon. Some people will buy anything.

    Another half an hour and you find yourself in front of a gaudy casino, the Goldstorm. A neon yellow sign depicts a cloud raining drops made of coins. Inside a clerk welcomes you, "Hi there, do you have ID? The age limit-" He stops as you hand him the package and he smiles. "Nevermind. ^150, right?" He hands you the cash and before you go he adds, "You know, we've got an open slot if you wanted to battle. Give the gamers some excitement. Whaddaya say?"

    Something in the way that this fellow talks to him combined with what he's seen of this island as a whole just... clicks with him. Collin feels as if the Spirit of Earth is telling him that he is home at last. Perhaps this offer is the sign that he should begin to put down roots. "That sounds wonderful. How about a ^300 wager? I have to warn you: I only recently found my first pokemon, and she and I have had no time to seriously train. I don't guarantee will provide a good fight."

    With that, Collin brings out Sybaris. The trapinch looks ever so slightly annoyed at Collin for being cooped up so long.

    "Apologies, Lady Sybaris, but the captain had a rule pokemon roaming his deck, and the city as a whole would have been overwhelming. I've done nothing but almost continual running around, and I know you don't like that in strange cities. Remember Cinnabar Island?"

    Turning back to the trainer, "Anyways, let's start this. Name's Collin, by the way, Collin Brady."

    Sybaris looks at her rival as it emerges, eager to face this challenge and prevail. In her mind, there is no "if".
