    Dave wakes up facing the ceiling "Dang it! Oh wait I fell asleep looking at that false alarm guys." says Dave to his pokemon in the room. he then looks at peach hmm... she's the weakest in the group, and the way things are going battling with her could be dangerous cause wilds, and those responsible are going to play for keeps. I need to come up with a safe way to make her strong enough to hold her own he then looks at the pouch of sling bullets hanging from his bag and gets an idea.

    He quickly gets ready and collects his pokemon as nice as it is to let them get out and stretch things could go south at any time, and he couldn't keep an eye on everyone.

    After unloading his camping gear and egg to save space He then heads to the training room with peach. He knows from weeding the garden back home that Shroomish can shoot some nasty spores out of the top but for peach the ability to do that hasn't appeared to have grown in yet so his idea is to toss a sling bullet back and forth with peach to help peaches "shooter" muscles grow in.

    It starts slow at first with peach hoping in frustration trying to launch the bullet from its top. then a break through when peach lands hard enough that puff of air escapes from inside and the bullet fly's a few feet in to the air much to peaches surprise "good job peach do you think you can do it again?" peach nods and does it again sending the bullet a few feet into the air "your doing great do you think you can shoot it higher?" after a few tries peach sends it higher "awesome now send it towards me" and in no time Dave and peach are playing a game of catch with Dave pushing peach to shoot the bullet further and further. Dave then looks at the time and realises an hour has past "I think thats all the time we have for now but here" he lifts the little shroomish and places it on his shoulder "you can help me explore before we go meet with Joan you'd probably like the fresh air right" the shroomish nods and closes its feet around one of the back pack's should strap for stability.

    Dave then goes across the street to the building Collin and Blake said the bomber escaped from (he munches a granola bar for breakfast on the way [-1 ration]). he hoped to find some gear and maybe some clues as to who the bombers are and where that particular bomber may have gone.

    in addition to the obvious stuff to look for like medical supplies, food, and scrap here are some areas of interest since there may not be time to search all the floors:
    • roof (clues, gear tossed from the mall explosion)
    • fire extinguisher box (3 guesses what I'm looking for here)
    • janitors closets (duct tape, rubber gloves, batteries,tools, etc...)

    Collin:
    Isonade seems to actually learn something from your personalized training and the attention makes her happy. (Training XP is validated). While you have time to kill before your meeting, you and Maia begin patrolling the streets. It's almost an hour later and you're heading towards the Arena when out of an alley two poisonous barbs fly out and sting Maia. They both hit, but the damage seems almost negligible. Following the barbs, two long, purple snakes slither out of the alley and are advancing on you.

    Spoiler
    Show
    5 damage to Maia. Both opponents are only a couple meters away. Collin's turn, Maia's turn. No map really needed.


    Blake:
    You take your bike and ride to the local museum. Along the way, Lux provides you enough light to see the extent of damages this far from the blast. Not a single building is untouched, most missing windows and some with collapsed walls or supports. Some light seems to be atop a hotel or two, but from so far below, you can make out no details. You soon arrive at the museum and find it locked. Lux doesn't see this as a problem and she goes through the door. Not in the style of Ganga, with breaking and noise, but like Varen would, quietly, invisibly. You wait for quite a while, fear flitting about the edges of your thoughts. After what feels like forever, you hear a soul piercing shriek and a window high above shatters. Out comes your ghostly candle pokemon and she has two items with her: a blue stone that looks water-worn and smooth, and a large, stone tooth. The latter must be some sort of fossil, but before you can really think about it, Lux urges you to get going, quickly! It's a rapid ride but soon you find yourself outside the Arena, panting slightly. You have a couple minutes before your meeting, so you sit and catch your breath.

    Dave:
    Peach seems to learn a little of what's expected of her from your training and she seems proud of the improvement. (Training XP validated). You bring her along as you try exploring a nearby skyscraper, the same one that Blake and Dave previously chased that trainer up. You take your time, going through most floors at random, but not finding much. You eventually come to a room in higher floor with a broken window. On the table, surrounded by shattered glass, is a package of three apricorns: Red, Blue, and Black. You accept the good fortune and are about to leave when you trip over another package: three potions, still unopened. You collect your loot, but find nothing else in the building. You return to the Arena and find Blake sitting outside, folding his bike back into it's compact shape.

    "No idea, but thanks... I did check out the museum, myself. Found a Water Stone..." Blake says, taking the potion and stowing it in his pack along with the bike before showing first the element stone, then the stone tooth to Dave. "Also found this... I wonder if they have anyone around with the ability - and the equipment, of course - to try and recreate whatever this was?"

    just reminding you that rock/ground is 1/4 to poison. I assume you know, just double checking.


    Collin will scan them and pick up a piece of rubble or nearby rock, whatever's handy.

    Maia will curl up defensively and burrow just underground so they'll have to get closer to hit her.

    Maia gets hit for 12 Damage. Rhea gets hit for 18 Damage and is flinched. You have line of sight for Rhea, but not Maia. You can command Maia to attack because Rhea can't follow your commands.

    For the time discrepancy, this means Collin commands Maia the turn earlier, Maia acts, then the new turn happens.

    In the new turn, Collin swaps Rhea for Bastet, and commands Bastet to bite her foe.

    Collin's turn again. Snakes are circling you. Bastet took 12 Damage, and because she's KO'd, she's not poisoned.

    Collin will throw his great ball at the injured one and pray for a capture.

    Whether it does or not, he'll use his shift to bring out Ganga and command her to use Sand Tomb on the uninjured one. ac 4 - (d20)[5]
    physical ground - (d12+22)[29]. If it hits, that'll trap it for (d4+1)[2] turns and deal it d20 damage each turn.

    This pokeball, like the great ball earlier, misses the snake and breaks. The Ekans seems to lose interest in Collin and it pounces on Ganga, sinking it's teeth in deeply. However, the Sandile seems fine, not at all shocked at the ferocity. Maia bursts through the ground, looking more solid and dense than before.

    Pokeball breaks. So did that Great ball earlier, forgot to mention it. They're repairable, just unusable. Ganga takes 12 damage after defenses and resistances. She's not flinched.

    Third time's the charm. Or so they say. But it works for you as the pokeball absorbs the Ekans without a hint of a struggle. But as you're about to collect your 7th team member, the ball teleports away. The Box System has kicked in, it seems.

    Collin will pick up Coatlicue's ball for a moment to christen her before she vanishes into the box system.

    He then will gather up the fragments of the great ball in hopes that Dave won't mind repairing it and store it in his backpack for now.

    He'll call out Bastet and Rhea to see if they found anything off this battle.

    (d20)[3] - Rhea
    (d20)[7] - Bastet

    Whatever they are, even if they're just worthless junk, he'll stow them away and recall everyone but Ganga.

    "Ganga, girl, you did very well there. You probably saved my life just then, and those of the rest of our team. You're getting so strong now. I am very grateful that you are with me." He has her accompany him the rest of the way to the arena.

    Collin:
    Once Bastet is returned you notice that she was covering a battle enhancer, an X Attack, to be exact. Not to be shown up by the KO'd cat, Rhea hands you a strange disc like object. Checking it out closer you realize it's a flashlight cover and when placed over the end of flashlight it makes a colored image. Utterly useless except to please children, but there you go. Once everyone's packed away, and all your "loot" collected, you make your way back tot he Arena and find Blake and Dave sitting on the steps, chatting.

    All Three:
    You enter the darkened entrance of the Arena, purposefully left dark so as not to attract attention and are greeted by a guard. "Hey guys, it's Ben here. Joan said to meet her in the box seats. Take a left and go up the stairs. Follow the signs, you can't miss it." The mental directions are accompanied with a quick run through of the route and you find yourselves having no trouble finding your leader.

    Once inside, she says, "Well, we have power now. And not just Electricity, either. These people look up to us. They rely on us." She takes a deep breath and seems to consider her next words carefully. "Which is why I'm pissed off. There's not enough food to go around. Not for longer than a week. It's only day two right now and we've still got all the major categories covered, but soon stuff will start going bad. And then things will start going wrong."

    She opens the blinds on a window and all three of you get a good look at the Arena below. Refugees are packed into the stands, each family taking up a small area and collectively setting up walls of fabric. The makeshift Kitchen has been moved and you can see lines leading into some meeting room and people leaving with cups of stew and bread rolls. There seems to be running water and the lines to the bathrooms are policed by one of the gym trainers whose name you don't know. The actual arena area, where Joan faced defeat just 24 hours ago, is covered in dirt. All the rocks seem to have ben moved to one end and the dirt seems well furrowed.

    "We have set up an area for farming. Or at least growing plants. The children have banded together and promised to tend the gardens. We've even got a volunteer to offer her services to help the plants grow quicker and larger, once we get the plants. That's where you three come in. This city relied heavily on greenhouses long before the blast and there was a reason for that. They work. I need you three to go and collect seeds of varying kinds from some greenhouse or another. And if you can, a heat lamp would be great. Any questions?"

    The Greenhouse Effect:
    Collect 5 different seeds or Berries.
    Collect an undamaged Heat lamp.
    Time: The sooner the better.

    "Luckily the extra power has allowed us to use one of the PC's in the staging area. It's where combatants can change their teams before events. The room is at either end of the Arena proper." Joan says. She thinks for a moment before answering Dave, "To my knowledge that is still being handled. Anna's been talking with it, but it keeps asking for it's master. Not knowing the fate of that master is one of her only advantages."

    "I believe someone at the Lab may know more about fossils, but we haven't been able to contact anyone there yet. I'll let you know if that situation changes."

    Blake nods at Joan, and says, "Much appreciated." Turning to the other members of his group, he releases Lux and says, "Lux here should be able to help out against any grass types we face - and I have Lyra as well. Just be careful with your team, Collin - unfortunately, you're going to be at something of a disadvantage." He makes his way over to the arena entrance, saying, "I'll wait for you guys to finish whatever you need to do."

    After that, he tracks down Dave and asks him privately, "Hey, uh, I had some trouble catching my ekans this morning, and my greatball broke. Can you fix it? I'd rather not let Joan know how badly the pair of snakes whipped me."
