We did, by beating the shit out of them and taking everything they had on them. Strangely, the Pokémon did not fight or run away like most thieves, only begging for mercy and denying they committed a crime. When we went back to Cherrim for payment, she let it slip that the Pokemon we beat on was no thief, but a member of her former village; Everything suddenly clicked into place. After a short grilling (literally), she revealed this Pokémon moved into HER house after she was kicked out by the villagers because of her sub-par Machiavellianism. She wanted revenge.The guild has "recruited" Cherrim as a semi-willing captive to keep her from calling the fuzz. Now the guild must decide what to do about the situation. Should the Guild turn Cherrim in to the village authorities and attempt to explain the situation, smoothing over their assault on an innocent Pokémon? Or should Lost Hope embrace the infamy of being a cutthroat "imposter guild"?

>>5121246>>5121246Damage = (Attack Power x Level)/D10These are the calculations for combat. Each player's turn should take no longer than 3 minutes. There WILL be a timer, folks.1 = miss/critical hit. Roll a 1d2. If it's a 1 again, critical hit. If it's a 2, miss.Lopunny is writing the first decision now.
You agreed to recruit Chrem the Cherrim, but...She's obvious not trustworthy, or too smart. She may try to turn you in later. She went deeper into the base for food, so now you have a choice. Will you give her the benefit of the doubt, or strike first and send her in?
>>5121341>Keep Cherrim in the guild>Turn her in to the authoritiesCast your votes!
>>5121345Turn her in. I don't want to get raided by the Po-Po
>>5121345I say turn her in
>>5121345I have no time for treasonists. turn this peon in!
>>5121345I say we keep her in the guild. Surely she wouldn't snitch on us.
>>5121345Silence her and bully her into submission, never tell the police
>>5121345Bind here, do we really have much to lose? We could use a local's knowledge of the land...
>>5121345She's already sullied our reputation enough, she deserves to face the consequences of her actions. Turn her in and let the police deal with her.
>>5121345We've already came this far, and we aren't on very good terms with the locals. I say we keep her around, what could go wrong?
1 more minute before counts!
>>5121345I vote we keep her. I like cherries and...uh I like Cherries.
hmm. a 4-4 tie. Wanna get dangerous? Flip the coin?
>>5121358I didn't get to vote. Send her to the slammer! We should try to smooth things over with the pokémon we beat up too.
tails and she gets the boot
The boot it is. Do you embark with her in tow, or leave her with the not-guild?
>>5121364Take her with us, we gotta turn her in for brownie points. Her whole village hates her already, I'm sure they'll understand we were deceived (and if they don't, oh well, better than letting her run around freely).
>>5121364Tie her up and deliver her to Magnezone! Don't let her roam free after her deception!
>>5121364if we turn her in personally it could help with forgiveness on what happened
"Say, I think some digett might live deeper in this cave. There's a hole where all your nabab berries used to be! and the pecha berries. All the sweet berries. Unfortunate. Anyway, what's to do first, team?
>>5121364I'll follow along from a distance. I want to get a good look if things get interesting.
>>5121364We can't let her out of our sight. Who knows what she'll do if we leave her alone. She may try to turn us in instead!
>>5121374We have enough people where we can multitask, show us where the hole is and I'm sure we can get someone to check it out.
>>5121364My Royal Watch isn't deserving of such botany. Send her to the local Dungeon!
I use confuse ray on the plant.
>>5121381O-oh! ah, don't worry about that, here, I'm sure you can get a good look in there if I get some light down that way. Here, have a sunny Day!
>>5121374>>5121386I might be interested in some of those pecha berries
Rolled 2 (1d10)Aww, It wasn't that obvious was it? Be cool, man
>>5121386She conjures light out of thin air! a WITCH!
>>5121386Alright, just give me a second before I check it out.>>5121389hey, if the cherrim starts anything don't hesitate to hit her, keep watch>now that's out the way, check the hole
>>5121386I'll hold her down sableguy, hit her with the confuse ray!
>>5121392It's just a fire-type move my Lord.The war is over, sir. They can't hurt you anymore.
I'm just going to get a thunder wave on her and we can get this show on the road, yeah? there shouldn't be an dungeons between here and town...
>>5121392No offense sir, but that's just moving clouds. it is incredibly normal by my standards
So... anyone have any rope? It's a little way to town and I don't want her running off.
Rolled 2 (1d2)You finally reach treasure town's police department, a shockingly forgettable and out-of-the-way hole in the wall populated exclusively by magnemite and magnezone. You're hardly through the door before Chrem cries out-
Rolled 2 (1d3)SOMEBODY HELP! THESE BANDITS ARE TRYING TO PIN THEIR WICKED CRIMES ON AN INNOCENT LONE BELLE
But bandits don't look for fall guys or charge into police stations. The magnemite encircle you ready for action, but they'll appraise the situation if you have something to say...
Rolled 4 (1d10)>>5121417IT WAS HER OFFICER SHE'S LYING!LOST HOPE IS INNOCENT!(Roll for charisma)
>>5121419THIS WENCH LIES! as your king i DEMAND YOU to arrest this fair maiden for treason and theivery!
>>5121419Officers, this cherubi lied about a mission in order to get a hit on an innocent...>uh... what was it we were sent to beat up again?pokemon my proclaiming it stole from her.
>>5121419Officer, we were duped! Please forgive us!
>>5121419What bandits would be so pitiful to have the law deal with their messes? Don't listen to her!
>>5121419CHERRIM GIRL BAD, gib reward money
>>5121421(I don't think they're buying it, time to start our crime syndicate. Evading arrest would be a good place to start.)
>>5121431Let's not until they try charging us, ok?
I...ZZZTTT... what? I don't think... ZZZTTTeither of you should be here based on your stories. Whay don't you submit it to some questioning and we can find the criminals ourselveZZZTTT?
How can I participate? I have difficulties getting where I can talk or decide things.
>>5121435sorry, we're kinda splitting between chat in the element deciding what to do and shitposting in the thread. 1k9KKgGV is the GM right now. Lope should make the post with easily identifiable choices
>submit to questioning>demand audience now>exposit one at a timebear in mind a submission will split you all into groups for safer processing
>>5121442(Help my small brain. I think I understand the first two choices, but what's the third one?)
>>5121442I have nothing to hide. I submit.
>>5121442nothing to hide here, willing to get questioned
>>5121449You would be debating with Chrem on what actually happened, as opposed to continued yelling over eachother
>>5121442Question me officers, I'm an honest cat.
>>5121442>exposit one at a timeTurning yourselves in for questioning is terrible. NEVER TALK TO THE POLICE, it's YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO PLEAD THE 5TH
Everyone is out at the base?I proceed to make another sign to hang over the guild sign titled, "Goddess Shrine" to "disguise the guild" until everyones safe return.
>>5121442I have plenty to hide, but nothing to find, I'll answer any questions as long as it helps clear our names.
>>5121453>>5121442(Well considering I've already yelled at the cops, I'm gonna go with the expositing. If we get split up that's fine too.)"Ehem," *adjusts mane* "Forgive me for the outburst officers. Please let us discuss this accusation more formally."
Given how many of you conceded, there really weren't enough pokemon to deny them anymore. Bind, Sable, Crimson, and Vee are separated from LK, Pinc, weatherboy, and Lum to be interrogated by three magnemite per party. You explain your misadventures to them, and they believe you (minus the grilling, despite Chrem's confirmation) But... "We gretaly apprectiate your cooperation and compliance. However, your crimeZZZ are serious and ignorance does not excuse what happened to those grimer. If you would come with uZZZ, we will see how lightly you can afford to be sentenced... ZZZTTT!
>Let this Happen?>Fight your way out
>>5121472>let it happenWe can fight if the sentence is worse than community service or a fine.
>>5121472>Let this HappenI've got a plan of my own if things are looking too bad for us.
>>5121467>Fight your way out"Seen this before," I whisper to LK. "Are we just gonna wait to be thrown in jail? It's not the first time I've been arrested for rolling into town on the wrong day."
>>5121472>Let it happenit's not like running away will help our sentence
>>5121472>Let it happenThey're too many to fight, we could get a lighter punishment if we show good behavior.
>>5121472> let it happenI'm not gonna screw myself, I'm level 5 for christ's sake.
All of you are detained and let to an underground cell block, noticeably snaking far away from under the rest of town. You're left in 4 cells;>weatherboy, CHrem, and LK>Pinc V and Sableacross from >Crimson and Bind>Lum and VeeChrem mutters something about you throwing your lives away and the serious authority of guilds, but like, it's Chrem.what do?
>>5121488I cautiously wait until a Magnezone guard passes by our cells. I edge my way to the bars and whisper."Hey, anybody know any moves that can cut through these bars? I don't think a quick attack is gonna do it."(Presuming I'm LV 1).
>>5121488>take a deep breath and prepare for whatever I'm going to hear from lord kingdraChrem, what did you do to even get exiled in the first place?>wonder if there's a way I can just... float out. slip through the bars or something.
Rolled 8, 2 = 10 (2d10)>>5121488I look out for a passing Magnemite or Magnezone, and attempt to use Covet to steal the keys
>>5121491Since I'm with Sableguy, he can just dig us both out with his dig move!
>>5121488"yo Pinc, watch my back"I use Dig to escape this prison. I'm going home, hopefully I can get Tapu to abuse god status and clear our names that way.
>>5121488This is PREPOSTEROUS! how dare they treat royal blood such as myself like trash! i DEMAND restitution of my throne!
Rolled 10 (1d20)>>5121493You could, but youll get zapped if you fail a stealth roll>>5121495You succeed in taking the keys, but magnezone definitely noticed taking 150 damage. Lets see if he can maneuver quickly enough to see you with all this iron around
>>5121501I make a run for it, darting under him to avoid his gaze
>>5121500We'll get your throne back soon, they probably don't know you're a royal!>>5121501>let's wait for Vee to do his thing before making my move, a distraction will make things easier to work with
>>5121500"ZZZTTT! we can get you a chair, but I'm not sure how much it would help you. Hoo, I'm not uZZZZed to being in these caves for long..."Vee and Sable escape with Pinc V in Tow while Bind Baton Passes an agility to Crimson, hopefully for faster lariats.Lum? Team Storm? what do? His attention is on you.
>>5121507I go back for LK, Crimson, and Bind, making the tunnel double-wide so they can probably fit.No Chrems allowed though.
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>5121507I use sucker punch (which I totally know) on the guard and make a break for it.
>>5121508Please elaborate. It's important.
>>5121501>>5121508I go with him, the magnemites can't shock him with me around to absorb it all!
>>5121512I will not allow Cherrim in this tunnel. This is a friend-only tunnel not meant for decievers.
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>5121507Sir, are you aware of how cruel it is to leave a kingdra with no water to work with? it's like expecting a grass type to thrive without the sun existing, or burying an electric type in sand and expecting it to go well.>distract the guards further so we those diggers can get to work
>>5121515> Friend-only tunnel(Use barrier on it.)
>>5121515Tunnels do not judge, they have no will. You gave the Cherry a means of escape or justice to her side.
>>5121518I will literally knock her unconscious to avoid associating with her.
>>5121517By the way Absol, I don't see you in the Element. You /qst/ only?
>>5121515Cool."IZZZ this a JAILBREAK?"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HGk3gJLccrkStrange metallic pings and whistles fill the halls as an arc of thundershock is fired at you, before being absorbed by Pinc V. Lum's sucker punch carries him all the way ouside of the cell and on top of officer Magnezone for uhhhhhLum roll a 1d10From the blaring sounds you assume a whole lotta trouble is on its way...
>>5121526alolan meowth hereif i use payday, can i get some cash for us
whoops, didn't see the 9. 38 damage on zone.
>>5121529Sure bro, go for it. You ain't in mid jail break though, your ass is back at the guild. Feel free to go out and get that bread though
Rolled 4 (1d10)>>5121530Do I attack again? If so I will use detect and pray somebody helps me.
>>5121523Uh, I suppose the answer to that is yes right now. Not super psyched on the account thing.
>>5121533That or you are escaping with the guys because they sound cool.
>>5121539Yeah that's better.>>5121529You're a prisoner, and you break out with us in the chaos. If you help us fight off Magnezone! Then we can use you for money laundering against usurious bankers.
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>5121526>well it's now or never>float on through the bars, pick up a key from Vee, and go unlock Crimson and LK's cells first, followed by Lum's and Sables
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>5121538Fair enough, we'll live for now.Magnezone sees his electric attack fail and abruptly- lifelessly turns to you. You have his complete and undivided attention. He prepares a tri attack...
>>5121542Free! Free at last! Now I know how you peons feel under my rule!
>>5121542That's a 1! roll a 1D2 for crit success or fail!5 turns until a whole lotta magnemite arrive
Rolled 1 (1d2)>>5121546let's hope for a success then!

>>5121554Whoops, yeah. You're sidestepping any attacks for the next turn. You can safely move wherever you want until then>>5121558You're burrowin. roll 1d10 to attack.Bind baton passes an agility to Pinc V, for double chances to thaw per turn (2d10, min 4)>>5121561It's raining. water moves are boosted, fire moves are weak, and electricity can't miss
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>5121562>The rain would definitely hinder my fire moves, so it's time to get up close and personal. I lunge at Magnezone baring my fangs at it, and attempt to Bite into its metal hull.
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>5121562Hey bot boy over here!>'Aight, water gun time
Rolled 1 (1d2)>>5121564(please for the love of god another crit)
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>5121562I burst out and use the attack from dig on Magnezone,then grab Pinc and GTFO thru the tunnel."RUN LIKE HEEEEEEELLLLLLLL!"

That STAB crit rainboosted water gun blew magnezone straight back into the wall, completely unconscious. He drops a cell battery from the force of the impact, and it looks like the extra water is keeping the rain up for another few turns. thaw4 turns until a whole lotta magnemite show up

Rolled 1 (1d10)>>5121573>>5121577"I've has enough of this, time to get out of here."I use double team and make a break for the exit up the stairwell.

Rolled 1 (1d10)>>5121573>Dig your way out, it's the easiest solution now that we have the tunnels. I move towards the unconscious body to pick up the battery it dropped, intending to hand it over to our spiky companion before leaving by the hole. On my way out I turn around and try to call out to Lum,"Hey, going for the tunnel is safer!"
>>5121580A 1! Roll a 1D2 for success or fail. >>5121588Via?

The tnnel to the surface is about 1/3 of the way complete with both of you digging.3 turns til trouble

Water is building along the floor. If some tries to fire off an electric move, it'll definitely give pinc multiple boosts, but he may not redirect every attack...>>5121606Ah, they're not here yet. It's kinda like a tower defense setup scene we've got here.>>5121605nevermind, 4 turns!tunnel 2/3.still digging?

>>5121608wait, there's no reason not to dig.3 turns, and you're all at the surface. But before that, What to do about Chrem? you opened her cell, she's out, and more than a little shocked. Looks like she's prepping another sunny day...>>5121609don't worry chief, I'm counting you. That tunnel would've taken six turns alone
(I must sleep now IRL, I'll move along with the group until I get back.)
>>5121617(alright, goodnight man!)
>>5121616Do not allow Chremlin in our tunnel, she's the reason we're in this predicament!
>>5121616Honestly, at this point? Kick her ass back into the tunnel and seal the exit, let her deal with all the magnemite flooding into it.

>>5123519I'll take the mention of necropost to inform any newbies that qst is an atypical board, in the sense that it is much slower. Threads stop bumping after 72 hours, yes, but they tend to last 30 to 45 days. No need to go around making a new thread every session like on /tg/ please. It's useless, everyone here has the catalog on last reply anyway, and since one anon can only have 3 threads up at any point, a pretty good way for the QM (quest master) to block himself from making new threads here for an entire month.I'm posting this because we've had the case recently.In any case, welcome to /qst/, people. It may be slow, but the few regulars here find it cozy.Any other questions can be redirected on the /qtg/ thread. It's full of autists, but it's the best way we've got of doing this.

(Read this in the Pokémon Anime Narrator voice)It's a beautiful new day for the Lost Hope Guild. The Swallow are singing, the sun is shining, and The Buzz has stopped putting out search parties. After a little deliberation, the guild has unanimously decided to use such a wonderful day as an excuse to add graverobbing to their rap sheets! "We'll loot the ruins we found in the woods and be rich!", the whole guild cried! No more eggs and apples for them, no sir, tonight they'd dine like kings! Together, they set out toward the ruins and the dense redwood forest surrounding it.As they walked along the road to their destination, the guild's eyes collectively bugged out in surprise (especially those of the bug Pokémon!). There, walking down the road straight toward them, was Chrem the Cherrim! That same blossom pokémon that had turned them into criminals, being escorted by two very powerful-looking Pokémon! After hiding in bushes along the road, the guild watched Cherrim and her beefy escorts turn at the intersection towards the same woods THEY were going to! Oh, what will the Guild do!Will they >intervene immediately? Will they >sneakily follow her? Or, will they >ignore the perfidious petal-demon and get on with their day? Find out on this Episode of: The Mystery Dungeons! >cue theme songhttps://youtu.be/yEBJY8DBcg4
>>5126760Told you guys that your actions have freed her from consequences. But not my call, I'm here for looting as much as I can.
>>5126760Ah, her. if only I didn't have a type disadvantage...>let's get a better look at those guards, what are we dealing with here?
>>5126760I'm gonna follow this plant-shaped-fiend sneakily.What are her escorts?
Our team should tail them from a distance. You guys should handle the looting, no?
>>5126760Something doesn't feel rightMay be better to keep our distance. We have to let Citrine catch up, anyway!
>>5126760I think being secretive for once might be a good idea
>>5126769>he says without namefagging
>>5126768I agree. We should try to keep our distance and see what it's up to. Why is the muscle needed?
>>5126770Yeah, that's the safest best
Rolled 1 (1d11)>>5126760Rolling to spawn. 1 is a success.
(Let's European Extreme this ho).
>>5126772Lopean namefags from the options field, so as to stay incognito
>>5126776Of course i forget to add the team name
>>5126760Those are some beefy-looking dudes. We should tail them for now until the rest of our team gets here.
>>5126770>>5126785agreed, we'll want someone who can keep out of sight from them, either in the bushes or overhead
>>5126785You got it Cap. Where Team Disaster at? Sound off.
>>5126760I'd say we try and identify them. How many guild members are present? We could always intimidate them without things getting heated.
>>5126760Let's go for the sneaky route, keep the element of surprise while we look at her companions.
>>5126795We do probably outnumber them greatly.
We could probably cover more ground if a couple teams split off for the dugeon. What to you all think? Wait, that rock over there is leaking purple goo...
>>5126790*points a vacant but intense stare at Astor*you have wings!
Looks like Team Disaster and our temp Rere is all here. For now, we must be hiding in the world's fattest bush to be able to fit this many pokemon.
>>5126799Normally, splitting up is a bad idea, but we do have a lot of people. I think it's a good idea.
>>5126804Cartoon logic best logic
>>5126800Umm, sure, i'll follow them
Rolled 10 (1d11)>>5126780An odd stone with what looks like a frowning face sits inconveniently in the middle of the road. Once Chrem gets close enough, a ghostly visage emerges in a low-level jumpscare. Like an unholy marriage of a haunted soda can and a jack-in-the-box, the cacophonic voice speaks to Chrem and her guards, slightly spitting ectoplasm in their faces like saliva from getting so close."NEW MOURNERS!"Spiritomb's obligatory carpet and wares pop out of its Odd Keystone it's bound to. They're all the same- a strange-looking treasure box."Welcome to our humble abode: The Epitaph."[rolling for pool]
>>5126809I mean if you wantthere's no rush
>>5126799As much as I agree on splitting up, I'd really rather not be left alone without my team. mind if I tag up with you guys?
>>5126804"Permission to investigate the goo captain? I would very much like to sniff it.">>5126810"...""Strike that cap, not interested."
>>5126810wait why is this so cool
>>5126811Don't worry, i got ya covered
>>5126813You WILL smell the goo. That is an order (teehee).
>>5126810Bisharp #1: Aye! I'm waaaalking 'ere! What'aya doin' in da middle of da road, creep?Chrem The Cherrim : Yeah bozo, beat it! Can't you see we're in a hurry!Bisharp #2: Miss Chrem, please. Allow us the pleasure of handling this "bozo". Buddy, would you kindly get outta our way so we can get outta here?
>>5126827The Epitaph(debut):https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sQnZKdkVsZASpiritomb's face distorts in multiple ways as if reacting multiple ways at the same time before contorting into a mischievous smirk."Are you sure? We can make it worth your while."Spiritomb leans in closer in a manner nothing like the jumpscare and speaks in a lower, but still cacophonic, voice."This is supposed to be taboo knowledge, but... have you ever heard of the human world? They've got nifty things... Things I can get you."
>>5126835"We NEED TMs, guys," Lum whispers to the team, "Why don't we ask this honest businessman about his wares? I'll just play it cool with Chrem."
>>5126835Bisharp #2: Alright, wise guy. You gots ten, TEN seconds to get outta here before I cut ya to ribbons. What's it gonna be?(While all this is happening, the Lost Hope Guild debates in several comically large bushes about what to do)
>>5126827>keep quiet and whispersteel/dark types... and a salesman?>>5126842I'd agree, we could do with some more type coverage... I know I could do with a better electric attack, or maybe a fire move.
yooo is this pmd
>>5126844Time to live up to the team name.I use Dig to burrow into the ground, waiting for the sounds of combat.
>>5126842Maybe someone she won't recignize should go? Tapu Rere has... more money than she should on her. Where did you get that?
>>5126842(Worst thing comes to worst, you can take a walloping since you resist dark, and have access to Detect.)
>>5126848"Shhhhhh! We're sneaking!"
>>5126844Spiritomb's expression looks almost tearful with more ectoplasm as they back away from leaning in."We thought what we had was special..."It then abruptly shifts to a grimace."Fine, don't let the door... Wait."Spiritomb retreats back into the Odd Keystone with a quizzical face, becoming no more an obstacle than a regular rock.
>>5126844Things might turn bad any time, i'll be ready to attack from the tree
>>5126856Sable, dig under that pokemon, see if you can talk to him quietly. here, take my money- 700P
>>5126844>>5126856"Let's just wait till these suckers leave, then go shopping. Freaking morons."
Citrine points forward with what little range of motion he has in his fore-rocks, eyeing Chrem."So this is the one that started some trouble? Kind of puny. If the little... plant-thing... tries something with weather I can change it to a sandstorm. Better than nothing, but... maybe protect your eyes."
>>5126856Sableye whispers from underground."hey, can you hear me?"
>>5126863Yeah, that's the girl that got us into this mess... you heard at what happened in the station right?
>>5126853kek>An odd Charmander is just kinda there now, I guess?I was given this ref as a gift and goddamn if I won't use it.
>>5126869join the element in the OP brother
>>5126865"The ground is talking to me again! Quiet ground! We're sneaking!"
>>5126869(you gotta go roll a 'mon up before you join I think, go https://randompokemon.com, grab your assigned form, and get in the element to get set up)
>>5126868"Not much of that, actually, just the sun part. Did she kick your asses?"
>>5126879she got us into a mess with the magnemite force, tricked us into attacking a civillian. not even sure what happened to those magnemite, but the sounds weren't pretty.
>>5126885"So everyone hates us now? Damn. Do I get a pass on that...?"
"Oh, I'm getting antsy Cap. They still haven't left yet? Maybe we just jump them huh? Think they have some cash?"
>>5126856Spiritomb has backed off. Cherrim and the Bisharps slowly let down their guards, and continue walking. Suddenly, Bisharp #1 kicks the rock the merchant retreated into, sending it flying back up the road towards our hero's comically large bush! It tumbles to the ground, silent.Wat do?>Talk to the rock>Keep following Chrem and co.>Pick up the rock AND follow them
>>5126888You weren't in the incident, so I think you'll be fine. just don't mention you're part of lost hope around them.
>>5126888"You joined the guild, numbnuts. Welcome to the crew."
>>5126890"Hey! HOW DARE they kick a fellow rock???"Citrine lowers his tone, realizing."I mean... shh....... how dare they? Can we go after them now??">Pick up the rock AND follow them
>>5126889>>5126890(Calm yourself Lum. We have a rock. Lets take it and pawn it off for cash.)
>>5126898"I can stalk them alone, but not for long without losing everyone, take that rock and follow me"
>>5126890The Cherry Lady's bad, and those bisharp seem bad, but they're hurting that rock-thing. Maybe they're good?>Pick up the rock AND follow them
>>5126890...I definitely want to fight those guys. but let's make sure merchantman is okay.
>>5126890"Finally, they're gone. Gonna get my TMs.">Talk to the rock
This guy doesn't seem like he's good for stealth, and we need to know how Chrem got out of jail so fast. We can't do that if we fight them. Team Divers and Castform should tail them.>Keep following Chrem and co.
>Talk to the rockThis thing seems special, and I don't think we're in any danger of losing Chrem and her bodyguards.
>>5126890Sableye keeps tunneling under them, listenin as best he can for what they're doin
>>5126899"I like the way you think boss. ReRe will be pleased if we get some cash."
>>5126890>Pick up the rock AND follow them"We can do both. There's enough people here for that."
The Guild has decided to pick up the rock ghost and follow Chrem. But how will they do it without getting caught? >player choice roll a 1d20 while explaining your plan, best plan wins
>>5126890>>5126865The Odd Keystone lands on its side and rolls. On closer inspection, there isn't a mark or any sign where Bisharp kicked the Odd Keystone. As Sableye approaches, Spiritomb does the exact same jumpscare as before."NEW MOURNERS!"The exact same lean, wares popping out, etc. follows."Welcome to our humble abode: The Epitaph."Spiritomb looks around, puzzled, as if they don't know how they got off the road, then back to the others."Ooh, we're popular today~!"
Rolled 16 (1d20)>>5126914Send him down with Sableguy, who is still underground and less audible
Rolled 9 (1d20)>>5126914"We're not exaclty stealthy all together, we should go team by team, and i should follow them ahead"
Rolled 11 (1d20)>>5126914"Why don't me and Castform follow from above or atleast get ahead of them to prepare a trap?"
Rolled 9 (1d20)>>5126914I say the flyers stay overhead so we can track those three, that way we don't have to have everyone right behind them
Rolled 9 (1d20)>>5126914"Lum, use quick attack to grab the rock! Crimson, you equip it! I'll watch from the bushes!"
Rolled 15 (1d20)>>5126914I say we stay in small groups, move cover to cover. First team leading should signal if/when it's clear to move forward.
Rolled 14 (1d20)>>5126914I use quick attack to nab the rock for Team Disaster and the glory of Tapu ReRe. I will deliver the rock to CT for carrying because it is heavy and he is strong.
>>5126914>>5126918Bind's got the right idea.. I'm sure Sable will appreciate the new rock.
Rolled 13 (1d20)>>5126931forgot to roll
Rolled 16 (1d20)>>5126914Try and get ahead of them from a different angle and set up some traps.
Rolled 16 (1d20)I carry the rock. We sneak behind them, but I carry the rock. That's the stipulation.
Rolled 17 (1d20)Use Agility, then deviate attention from the rock so others can grab it
>>5126936"Cap, those juicy legs. There's no way I can outspeed him!"
>>5126942"Crimson, you see what happens when you don't skip leg day?"
>>5126914>>5126916>>5126918TIME LOOP TIME LOOP TIME LOOPhttps://youtu.be/r43-iirtQocREEEEEEEEWINDING.... Bisharp #1 kicks the ghost Pokémon up the road, where it skips and hops straight into Sableye's mouth as he raises his head up out of his tunnel.Sableye: "BLEUGH, ACH, COOF COOF COOF"With an ectoplasmic whoosh, the ghost Pokémon leaves its rock and comes out of Sableye's mouth.
>>5126946"Look, you can't blame me when we don't have a threadmill! ...or any other kind of equipment at all."
>>5126914>>5126941A quiet rustling appears from behind the bushes, though whatever caused it can't be seen. Though moments after a beige blur crosses the bisharps peripheral vision, stopping very briefly to to pic related in front of them, the continuing his zoomies, drawing their attention away from the keystone
>>5126948I hope he doesn't swallow it.>>5126952First thing after this, you're gonna run laps around the guild.
>>5126955Thank you furret, very cool. Now Spritomb can commence his shenanigans.
>>5126948>pukes up soulstone slowly (it heavy)Ugh, tastes like dead caterpillars.
>>5126948>re-orientate myself from... whatever just happeneddoes anyone else feel like they've just been thrown through a loop?
>>5126961I was wondering where our unpaid intern Caterpie went.
>>5126948>>5126961"GOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAL!!!"Spiritomb yells from inside the Odd Keystone like an absentee father watching sports in another room. They fall out of Sableye's mouth immediately after, surprisingly no worse for wear.
>>5126962"Well I am confused, but that's not out of the ordinary."
>>5126962My taste buds sure do
That pokemon just appeared back where it was, and got kicked again just like the first time! Did... did we do that?
>>5126961What does dead caterpillars tastes like?
>>5126972Pain, regret, sorrow, lyme disease
>>5126962>>5126966My circadian rhythms feel out of the loop, but other than that I'm fine.
>>5126969I'm really not sure, but I have this feeling like we were talking about plans a few seconds ago.did the rock hit me on the fling?
>>5126964We can afford unpaid interns?
>>5126964*Looks around nervously*"Anyway! Forget about that! All I know is, when you lose a video game, you have to restart. So that means we probably did something wrong, and looped back right?"
>>5126980As long as they can feed themselves.
>>5126965The guild has successfully obtained the Odd Keystone while using Furret as a distraction. Chrem and co. are marching onwards further into the Redwoods.The guild follows them, making sure to stay hidden as best they can. Citrine DEMANDED to hold the rock, so he has the rock now. The rock is quite chatty, and often offers human relics and artifacts, among other things.>buy from rock ghost>politely ignore rock ghost and continue the gangstalking
>>5126986"A shopkeeper means trouble, let's see what he has to sell">buy from rock ghost
>>5126986Crimson nudges Lum. "You wanted TMs, right? With Chrem's group out of the way, this might be your chance."
>>5126982It was probably your fault. I'm docking your pay.
>>5126986"Ghost Rock dude, I want to hear all about the wares but for now we are on a quest. Join us in our looting spree and come to our abode to where we can topple those LizardJews in town and their monopoly on supplies."
>>5126982This isn't a game, Lum. Besides. Nothing bad happened that first time, I think. Let's go on ahead.>>5126986>politely ignore rock ghost and continue the gangstalking
>>5126986"I wish I had money for you, but... uh... ask someone else. I'm sure they'd help an assault victim out, right? Right, guys?">buy from rock ghost (but not me. my decision is that someone else should do it :D)
>>5126986>politely ignore rock ghost and continue the gangstalkingIf this guy really does have whatever he claims to, I would probably purchase something, but I'm broke, and I don't think stealing from him is a good idea...
>>5126986>politely ignore rock ghostStill gotta set up a team rocket tier pitfall, maybe next time.
>>5126993Lum nods and approaches the rock. "I overheard something about human relics for sale, stranger?">>5126994"AFTER shopping right?">buy from rock ghost
>>5126986>>5126993"Yo, pick me up something cool while you're at it."
>>5126986"Let's do a bit of window shopping. Whoever's rearguard can do the talking."

>>5126986>Politely ignoreI would be happy to join the purchasing, but... I'm not the one with funds. if you can can you grab an ice or fire move for me though? I'll be tracking the flower.
As Spiritomb and interested buyers walk and chat and haggle, the more invested gangstalkers continue following Chrem and her Bisharp bodyguards all the way to the human ruins they'd seen when they first came here. Rather than enter the ruins however, the bisharps turn right at a fork in the road. Wat do?>Fuck Chrem, explore the ruins>Fuck Chrem, keep gangstalking her>Fuck Chrem, split up and do both
>>5126986>>5127025As if sensing interest in shopping, Spiritomb emerges the same way yet again."NEW MOURNERS!"They don't seem to recall the time loop, with the carpet and wares popping out like before. They're all the same- a strange type of treasure box."Welcome to our humble abode: The Epitaph."They eagerly glance everyone over, anticipating a question while they window shop.
>>5127025We don't know what Chrem is doing, but if she's raiding the ruins, I want to get there first and take whatever treasure I find before her.
>>5127025>>5127032>Fuck Chrem, explore the ruinsI forgot to choose
>>5127025>Fuck Chrem, explore the ruinsNothing like a good distraction.

>>5127102>>5127103"Ha! Rere said you got feminine hips."
In the midst of the battle, Team Disaster and the straggling newbies find their way inside the ruins... Giving it a closer inspection, it looks like an old human fort, weathered and torn but still recognizable. There's a large central courtyard with a well, a large brick building mostly intact save for a collapsed roof, and a doorway into the walls of the ruins. There are smaller, more collapsed buildings strewn about along the interior walls as well.Where would Team Disaster and co. like to go?>The brick building>Inside the walls>down the well

>>5127107Team Disaster and the newbs decide the well is the best place to go treasure hunting. They all climb down into not just a well, but an entire pipeline and sewage system. Long disused, they travel the twisting tunnels, lit only by their respective abilities.Eventually they come to a deeper portion of the sewer, filled with water. Only Dragonair can breathe underwater safely, and so would be the one to go.>Do it>Look Elsewhere

>>5127120"Hm, it appears this journey is not suited for the whole of us. What say we split up? I'll venture forward to the murkier depths while you guys opt for a different route."
>>5127145"Sounds like a plan, Cap. We'll watch your six."Lum proceeds to sneak around the empty runnel for no particular reason.
>>5127144(wait I am going to contest that, 40/10*7=28, not 13)
>>5127145"I'll stick around just incase, Just know that I don't think I can carry you..."Again, spamming Aromatic Mist because it stinks
>>5127145"Water would give me a hell of a hard time so yeah, might be better to explore around with the others."
>>5127150(Our special defense is towering.)
>>5127145Swan swims down into the sewer, following it into a breach. It seems the pipeline was built into an underwater aquifer! Swimming around the entrance of the aquifer, Swan sees an air pocket, and advances to it! Breaching into the air, she's surprised to find a Gabite, sleeping on a tattered rug. Behind its sleeping body lies a fancy treasure chest. Wat do Dragonair?>Player choice, roll for best plan. Other team members can make a plan, if they win it's the plan they convinced Swan to follow through on before going into the tunnel.

>>5127177Lum stands at the edge of the water and peers into it wondering what's taking so long.
>>5127169Now awake after my near-death encounter with the world's strongest pimp-slap, I help Vee tie up the plant bimbo and her simps.I also eat my oran berry to regain full HP
>>5127167Suddenly, an avian Pokémon swoops down from above, standing between the unconscious Chrem (and her bodyguards) and the Guild."Foul knaves, step away from the flower! I will not stand for unprovoked attacks under my watch!"He speaks in a medieval accent, and shoots them a glare.
Rolled 10, 2, 10 = 22 (3d10)rollin xp and multin' by 6

Unprovoked? I'll have you know this was a scientific experiment. And she was a jerk.

You were the ones who struck these Pokémon down... What is YOUR justification?"It's been hardly a minute and his voice is already annoying you.
>>5127195"Apologies, my eyesight is shit and I was just squinting to get a better look at the gleam in the corner of my eye. Anyway have you considered signing up for a timeshare?"
>>5127205"This fight is over, and this Cherim has been nothing but trouble for our Guild. She's sullied our reputations and gotten away with it, too! As if she hasn't done anything wrong."
>>5127205She is a deceiver! She had us attack an innocent pokemon under false pretenses and got us into trouble.Please sir, look into my eyes and see the truth! Don't let her deceive you too!(I'm not doing anything shady, I'm just dramatic)
Rolled 14 (1d20)We don't have time for this clown! Guys, let's grab Chrem and bounce before he can even catch us!
>>5127207Gabite: Bullshit! If you won't leave, I'll make you leave!>Gabite uses Dragon Rage"This attack hits the target with a shock wave of pure rage. This attack always inflicts 40 HP damage."
>>5127210"No, wait! We'll never fix the people's views on us if we incriminate ourselves like this. Let's talk."
>>5127211Lum misses the commotion as he has exited the well and is taking a nap outside.
>>5127205"Sir, i just have one thing to say, she deserved it"
>>5127211"Fuck me I'm hurting real bad. Pop a cap in his ass everyone!"*recedes into water*
She is supposed to be in jail right now, not assaulting shopkeeps. That encounter in town never would have happened if she wasn't such a... cahooter!
>>5127208"The worst you can accuse her of is ruining your image? I am to believe THIS justifies an all-out attack on an unsuspecting traveller?">>5127209"Even in your own stories, you admit to attacking innocent Pokémon... It is clear now the type of travellers you are!">The Corvisquire used Hone Claws!Looks like he's getting ready to attack... no way to talk your way out of this situation.
>>5127221>>5127211Hearing some yelling and shaking, I proceed to shout "Swan's fighting!" to anyone nearby and await for her victorious return... As I have done nothing but wait for Swan to return.
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>5127225That'll knock us out for sure! watch out guys! I use substitute.
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>5127225(I am unsure if a roll is required for this move, so I will provide one regardless)
>>5127225"I tried to do good for once... Alright, how about a duel, then? You're outnumbered, but if you choose one of us to take on, and you win, we'll come with you? How's that sound."
>>5127221The cries of pain from their leader spurred Crimson into action. Our feline friend takes a step back and a deep breath, relaxing his body as he lets Bulk Up reinforce his attack and defense stats, he might need the boost in power if his captain was in trouble. Hesitant at first, his resolve to save a teammate becomes stronger than his fear of water, and immediately jumps in, trying to follow the sound of Swan's and Rere's voices.

>>5127232>>5127236I meet Crimson and Konstantin halfway and motion them good luck. Rere is here in spirit.
From out in the shadows a Linoone emerges looking like he has no idea what goes on. He wanders over to his team and rears on his hind legs giving a greeting. "I didn't forget! I just got..sidetracked." Looking around he thinks things have taken a turn for the worse while he got lost berry picking.
>>5127211>>5127232>>5127236Dragonair retreats, and Gabite follows in angry pursuit. Incineroar and Konstantin the Lopunny swim forwards and halt the Gabite's advance, as Dragonair seeks shelter behind them. Being only air-breathers, Incineroar and Konstantin would eventually drown, but Dragonair can give them air via mouth to mouth (gross!).Roll your attacks on the Gabite!

Bind casually steps forward and points at the bird. "Just so you know who took you out in one blow, I'll have you know that I am Bind of team Divers, in the Lost hope Guild."
He waits for honorbird to inevitably stop and introduce himself.
Rolled 14 (1d20)>>5127252"I am Sir Ironquill, and the Pokémon of this forest asked for my protection. 'Lost Hope'... Such a fitting name, given your chances in this battle."He takes a moment to examine his opponent as he readies himself to strike (perception roll).

Rolled 1 (1d10)>>5127244>>5127246Your attacks land and deal a combined 113 damage! Gabite's not looking so good... but now it's time for his counter attack!Gabite:"Fuck you home invaders! If I'm going down, you're going down with me!">Gabite used Take Down
Rolled 2 (1d4)>>5127255>>5127250>>5127252Noticing the Blast Seed on the rabbit, Sir Ironquill adjusts his strategy accordingly - Pluck would be an unwise move here. With sharpened claws, he lunges forward to unleash Fury Attack upon his foe without warning! (Rolling 1d4, then adding 1, to decide amount of hits. Damageroll will be in next post.)
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>5127260(And now for damage, keeping in mind the Hone Claws boost)

>>5127263"Good lord! That nearly grazed you, man."
Rolled 8 (1d20)>>5127260Knowing just about any attack would knock him out anyway, Bind flicks his blast seed into a nearby tree, hoping to knock it down into the bird and disrupt his attack.
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>5127265>The lopunny swims towards the treasure room to get air.>Also rolling for XP.
Rolled 4 (1d10)>>5127265"Oo yeah baby what Imma get?"
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>5127266"I swear I saw one of my nine lives flashing before my eyes." He responds after surfacing from the water and taking a heavy breath of air.
>>5127267A miss! Par for the course. Bind's out cold.
>>5127269"So close yet so far from a level up. Lets say we check out this treasure trove, shall we boys?"
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>5127274(Rolling for XP, multiply by 6)The bird stands victoriously, but does not make any other moves."Now, I'm sure we can settle this peacefully, as per our deal. Whatever message you wanted to send these Pokémon has already been sent, whether I like it or not, so what say you that I simply escort you to your destination and give them some time to get up and be on their way?"The bird offers you to be in peace. You feel the alternative is offering you to be in pieces.
Rolled 5 (1d20)I sneakily attempt to take the blast seed Bind tossed.

Rolled 1 (1d10)>>5127260Getting into position Linoone sharpens his class on the ground. "I don't know why we are fighting but I'll take you down!" He lunges and delivers a slash to the avian.
>>5127288The rock's back, like they somehow sped there. They wait for someone to approach.
"hey guys I think I see Rere face down in the water over there."
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>5127293>Feels all the pain and grossness right now, down a 4th of their health but atleast gaining XP
>>5127296Welcome to the "hurt bad" club.
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>5127289There's no need for a mathmetician to tell that that bird is down, and probably will be for as long as this adventure takes. With his last breath, he curses the guild."A spit... in the face... of peace. You've all made... a grave mistake."Well, you don't have to worry about that annoying manner of speech anymore, that's for sure.
>>5127302(Kuroba keeps leaving the options field filled, disregard any rolls that seem to be without purpose.)
>>5127282>>5127302Vee moves from the spot he so unceremoniously froze at upon failing to sneak around the bird's gaze, picking up the Blast Seed. "Here" He says to Bind, handing him the item. The Lopunny's barely conscious by now, but accepts it nonetheless.
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>5127302When the dust settles he sees his opponent knocked out cold before him. His eyes widen in shock and he examines himself, not a scratch on him. Feeling a sudden sense of pride he feels like his power has increased, even if he feels guilty for knocking out the poor bird so overkill. "I hope you learned your lesson! I guess..heh"
"Alright gang. I the team leader will hold onto the spoils for now. We shall split it among us at a later point in time. What say we climb out of this creepy crevice and rest our weary bones for the time being?"
>>5127307"Adj-av-da...">ReRe is still somewhat out of it and will recover soon
Bind attempts to use sableguy as a crutch to stand. unfortunately, sable is a ghost, so he falls and lands back on a cracked rib.
From the ground, looking resigned up to the forest canopy,"what are we doing with this guy? he's just going to be more trouble if we let him go..."
"HM? Hold the phones! That suspicious marble of stone follows us as if it yearns for AFFORDABLE AND CRAZY SALES! Lets check it out, guys!"
>>5127315Well, I think we should either leave him a note or sully our reputation further.I vote for the note, this criminality thing is getting pretty bad.
>>5127311>>5127315Barely managing to contain a laugh seeing Bind fall like that, Vee walks over to him. "Well, if he gets away and tells everyone, I don't think it'll end well." Vee takes a moment to think. "We could... kidnap him, I guess? We don't need to torture him or anything, just do everything we can to assure him we're not evil."
>>5127315He's too dangerous to be left alone, we should take him to the HQ and hope he doesn't remember a thing, that last hit was nasty
"He's just going to be a headache later, yeah. Crime Den it is. Make sure to get Chrem, too. we neeed to know why she isn't in prison." Having completely given up on looking respectable after 3 consecutive defeats, he rolls over in the dirt several times to get to the oran berry in his bag.
>>5127292"Knock knock. I sense an aura of delicious deals emanating from this peculiar stone. Whaddya got in there, friend?"
>>5127329Walking over to the three unconscious bodies, Vee spoke to Bind. "I'll get Chrem, she's pretty small, I could carry her." He did his best to position her so that he could pick her up, with no luck. "Could I get some help here?" He asked. "And what about these guys?" He said, kicking a Bisharp's head, and regretting it.
>>5127332We can leave them, i doubt she paid enough to them to care
>>5127316Spiritomb appears like a demented pop-out book."Dark and... windy? Our favorite! XD"The wares fall again and they're all still the same treasure box. It feels empty when lifted and shaken."Welcome to the Epitaph. We've got (almost) EVERYTHING! More items in stock than even Kangaskhan Storage! Consistent and affordable price that's easy to budget around! No need for that statue Xatu in Treasure Town to open it! And the best part... items from the human world..."Spiritomb leans in with a flirty wink."Pick whichever one you want!"Due to space limits, there's 8 boxes out, but you can buy up to 108 of them.
>>5127332Can I leave them a note? I don't want to be seen as some psycho by everyone we come across.
Rolled 6 (1d20)
>>5127340What would we say? 'Sorry we beat you up, it was for science'."?
>>5127338"Hot damn! Only 108 poke for a box? What a steal! I'll take two please!"
>>5127346I was thinking more along the lines of "Sorry this shyster swindled you so hard, please accept this cool rock as a gift of our apology."
>>5127338This was definitely a bit unconventional, Though he had to admit, the random chance attracted him a little bit into considering it. He tried to shake one around- but it just felt weirdly empty. Still riding the high of their lucky victory against the Gabite from earlier, he smirks quite confidently, and places 540 Poké in front of the shopkeeper. "I'll take five from the six remaining, please."
Rolled 14 (1d20)Missing all of the action, Poli eventually was satisfied with the pitfall traps he set up. Unfortunately, the intended target was already defeated. He heads towards where Chrem was, suspicious of the time it was taking.Rolling to see if Poli falls in his own traps or not.
Rolled 45, 453 = 498 (2d594)>>5127348Upon mention of Spiritomb's prices, their green orbs start spinning and they drool a little ectoplasm. If they had more than one pupil, they'd be cross-eyed. Suddenly, joy!"The going rate's 108! Good idea!"For a moment, you can feel Spiritomb's pressure as you hold the box. "No refunds."Exchanging the money results in a budget-destroying jump up in animation quality as special effects litter your point of view. Spiritomb vanishes at an astonishing speed and, once a floor's distance away, the boxes open...[Swan's roll]

>>5127368Oh snap, we got the power to do a full party rez now!
>>5127307>>5127368With treasure in tow, Team Disaster triumphantly returned to the surface! On the way back they re-met the rest of the guild, and together rested their weary bones inside a large brick house, the last-standing building of the ruin. It looks like it was once an armory of some sort, though now it lays mostly bare. There are a handful of old human military uniforms, some expired ammo, a singular rusted handgun of unknown make and model, and a guidon pole with no flag.In the basement is a jail, where you decide to lock your defeated adversaries. As you all settle in on the first floor for a well-deserved rest, there's a sudden knock at the door? Who could it be?Jeffurchin: Em, hello? Would you open up, gentlemen! It's me, Jeffurchin!(Everyone then realized they'd left Jeffurchin at home. One pokémon runs to the door, and opens it to see Jeffurchin holding a rough-hewn flag, based on the flag discussion they'd had the other day)Jeffurchin: Hope I didn't miss too much. How was the dungeoneering?(Everyone rolls their eyes, and the credits roll with them)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ii8WaX82eNk
Bind looks down between his bruised and battered body. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6N671K_qU0He glares at Jeffurchin silently for 1 full minute, before gliding back into his quarters in the guild cave with Ironquill and Chrem in ties.
>>5127379O-oh. I guess a lot happened while I was gone. Pardon me.
>>5127379Time to finally put an end to this for now. I don't look forward to listening to Chrem's screaming in the morning, though.

The guild wakes up to the sound of Chrem's incessant crying down in the gay baby basement, and her bisharp bodyguards warmly consoling her. Now wide awake thanks to such a wonderful wakeup call, the guild gets organized in the remnants of the human armory, the last standing building inside the walls of the ruined human fortress.

>>5133251>Actually gentle persuasion"Chrem is crying enough already, I fear doing anything short of breathing at her will just make it worse. We should just see if we can talk to her, first. If not, her guards might be more reasonable."
There are a few ways to get someone to talk...
>>5133251>actually gentle persuasion>except on chrem>let's make the geneva suggestions look like a joke on herThe bisharp haven't done anything wrong, yet. let's have a calm chat with them.Chrem however is fair game.
>>5133251"CIA black sites sound cool, but we want to keep her alive, right?">Gentle Persuasion™
>>5133251>Player ChoiceI proceed to explain the complexities and intelligence behind Young Sheldon and the vast connecting lore it has to Big Bang Theory to the point that they wish only for death and never ending suffering.
>>5133251>>5133260>Gentle Persuasion™Well... we're not completely evil. We're not the baddies, are we?
>>5133251>Actually gentle persuasionWe need info, not a bloodbath. If need be we can ask her bisharp boys what she's doing here. They're probably only in this for money.
>>5133251>Actually Gentle Persuasion™I have no qualms with Chrem or her bodyguards, at least not yet. It would be in her best interests to spill the beans before someone else makes her.
>>5133271"I'm sorry, if you do that, there's going to be blue on blue."
>>5133271"Permission to slap Private Rere on the mouth?"
>Actually gentle persuasion"Let's give them a nice pistil rub and promise not to pluck her eyes out. That way: She'll be so happy that she'll tell us whatever we want!"
>>5133271>note to water gun rere if she keeps this up
>>5133282"I'm willing to Throat Chop her just to stop her from talking."
>>5133271"That's a bit much, don't you think..?"
>>5133267Do you not know Hypnosis, Hector?
>>5133289Oh, I'm sorry. I thought you guys wanted "Gentle Persuasion." But fine, pussy out. I'm gonna go find some more loot by myself.
>>5133271"...I like this one already! One question though: Who is Sheldon? Is that the Cherrim's name? ...Because if so, I feel sorry for them."
>>5133295"Off she goes, into the grassy bushes never to be seen again."
>>5133292>>5133251Oh yeah, I got it all. Hypnosis, Mind Reader, Disable, if she tries to pull anything. Totally quick and easy. Shouldn't take more than a minute.
>>5133295ReRe, you do understand you were commiting a warcrime on collective punishment, WE don't want to have to listen to that either
>>5133251>Actually gentle persuasion
I'm glad we didn't have to listen to... the Big Bang Theory, or whatever that is.
Rolled 14 (1d20)Rolling for persuader.
>>5133316"Don't worry. That isn't the worst of the memetic hazards we have. I think, anyway."
>>5133316>>5133321From what I can remember, that was supposed to be funny. What about I can't say, but if Rere thinks it's a torture method I must be mistaken.
>>5133321I think I got one, but it only works on us I think.could be a good way to find others like us though.
>>5133251The guild has chosen mercy today, and now must come up with the best way to persuade the prisoners (Bisharp Bros, Chrem, and Ironquill) to tell them everything they know about the area, who they work for, what they want from the guild, etc.Write your plan to peacefully persuade the prisoners. Roll a 1d20, highest score has their plan used!

Rolled 1 (1d20)>>5133324
Rolled 4 (1d20)>>5133324hmm... remember those enigma berries? maybe if we give good food they'll be more open to talk.of course they might just taste them as eggfruit like some of us did but they should be okay with eggs.
Rolled 6 (1d20)>>5133324Rolling to make Hector do it.
Rolled 14 (1d20)>>5133324
Rolled 19 (1d20)Whoops, posted my roll too early last time apparently. My idea is to get some people they haven't seen before (Team new) and try to respectfully but firmly ask them what the hell they were doing.
>>5133324>>5133327(oops. here's that plan.)Simple: threaten to leave them here. Tied up and shit, making sure the Bisharps can't cut anything. It'll take them a damn while to leave but it's not TECHNICALLY torture...
Rolled 2 (1d20)>>5133324lol get Hector to do it, he's got the magic
Rolled 9 (1d20)>>5133324Crimson ponders for a moment, then slams his fist on his open palm. "We need to interrogate all four of them separately so they can't come up with a lie together," he begun, "Just like the Magnemite did to us. From there, we question them and write it all down to corroborate."
Rolled 3 (1d20)>>5133324I wanna pluck a feather from Ironquill and tickle their noses with it! Also I'll threaten to find where they live and shoot their dog.
>>5133324Rolling to see if I can be the persuader
Rolled 19 (1d20)>>5133324>>5133332Rolling to use Castform's plan.

Rolled 11 (1d20)Add dice
Rolled 15 (1d20)>>5133339Agreed, Hector's Hypnosis may be just what we need.
>>5133346because I got the shit beaten outta me
Rolled 1 (1d20)>>5133344Do dubs count?
Rolled 12 (1d20)>>5133324Well, if we're doing a peaceful interrogation, it's best if we split all three of them up and place them into separate rooms. Then we begin asking questions that are purposefully incorrect to see and gauge their reactions. They may even spill information accidentally correcting us. If we make no progress, we send in the psychic types for a bit more of an aggressive action. However, if we play our cards right, we should remain relatively peaceful.
>>5133352lol. I guess talk-no-jutsu and enigma berry torture is gonna win.
Rolled 11 (1d20)Alas, after his latest exploit, Sir Ironquill was captured and locked in a cage! How is the bird-knight holding up? Only the dice know!(...Or maybe, just maybe... I'm rolling for something else. ;^)

As soon as the basement door opens Chrem immediately stops crying and puts forth a face of perfect stoicism. The Bisharps in the cell with her eye the guildies warily, sizing them up. Ironquill is in the cell adjacent to them, pretending to be asleep in an almost-convincing way, save for him temporarily opening his eye to look at the guildies walking in.It's Escavalier's turn to go first. Everyone roll a 1d100 to give him your energy. Escavalier, don't roll. Roleplay. Say what you're going to say to Chrem and the Bisharps. Do your best!

>>513384Alright. Chrem, Bisharps, I'm going to need you both to cooperate with me here, basically half the guild is sitting right outside the door. We need to know why you 3 have been doing what you've been doing, ESPECIALLY you 2 Bisharps? *Pokes groundIt's not everyday 'mons like you show up around here, much less as bodyguards for a grass pokemon. Well? Are you going to tell us? You may need to consider your choices.

>>5133407>>5133420There are two types of people.
Rolled 63 (1d100)>>5133384do your best!
>>5133406Bisharp #1: Why should we tell youse guys anythin'! Youse locked us up in the basement of a mystery dungeon! Don't you realize how dangerous that is! We could all be-Bisharp #2: Ermanno, calm down. These aren't your normal everyday Pokémon. You can tell, look: They have no fear in their eyes.Ermanno: Callisto, brother! You're talking like a mad man. Let's just slash our way out now and take their ke-Callisto: And do what? Get beaten senseless again by their entire mob upstairs? We've been over this. (to Escavalier) We'll talk. But first, who are YOU? What is your group of goons doing in these woods?Chrem, her facade breaking down: C-callisto, are we really gonna talk to them? They were the ones who attacked me and brought me to the police in the first place!Callisto: I know, Miss Chrem. Let me handle this. (to Escavalier) WHO. ARE. YOU?
>>5133445Everyone above the basement is getting bored. So, they decide now's a perfect time to adventure! There's only one area of the ruins left to explore, the interior of the walls.The whole gang squeezes in through a narrow entrance, using torches lit by Crimson to see. The guild entered at the middle of the west side.Which way do you go? >North>South
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>5133457I shall leave it to luck. An even roll is North, an odd roll is South.
>>5133457South cuz I'm gangsta
>>5133457"...We should go North. If there's nothing, we can come back around to check South." The uniformed, militant Lopunny hums.
>>5133457Hmm, I can check north, I assume we're splitting up to cover more ground?
>>5133457>NorthI have no preference but feeling pretty northbound right now
>>5133465Sure, we can go North
>>5133457Already went South
>>5133457"North, no reason why"
Rolled 58 (1d100)>>5133457Rolling to predict north as the best possible option.
>>5133445"My name's Vee. I remember you guys from the battle before. You really had us all worried back there, that was the first time in a while I felt like I met my match! Where'd you two get so strong? I'd love to hear a few tips!"
>>5133457>South"Rere went that way, I don't think we should split just yet."
>>5133457May as well go north!>North
>>5133467Good to have you here Jeff
>>5133457"Well uh, no point in trying to crowd a dungeon if everyone is already heading there. We could just stay here and prep something for dinner. Unless you want to also go adventuring for that sweet experience, Poli?"
>>5133457>North"Moss always points north!"
>>5133487Man, how did you even get down here with that... scratch that just how did you get down here without getting stuck?
>>5133486"Yeah, I'd rather head out. We could go scrounging for supplies, if nothing else."
>>5133472Callisto The Bisharp: My name, as you've heard, is Callisto. We're strong because we have trained hard for it, and fought many battles.Ermanno: Like kick Eevee ass, we knocked your ass out yesterday!Chrem: ...Ermanno, do you have a concsusion? Vee is the one who kicked YOUR ass.Ermanno: ...Oh. Right.Callisto, rolling his eyes: You're dodging my question, Vee. When I say who are you, I mean your group, not you as an individual.
>>5133493We are but a group of people, concerned about the fact that that traitorous Cherrim has gotten away with perfidy without punishment.
>>5133457The explorers have decided to go north! And so they march, into the deep concrete and cobble recesses of the walls. Strangely, the walls seem to go on much farther in the inside than the outside. And it's getting colder... Much colder. So cold in fact that some Pokémon have begun to shiver. What's going on?Suddenly, a loud wail rings out and echoes along the walls! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uOm-samMYMQ Out of the cold, inky blackness, the cries multiply, crying and crying, getting louder and louder, closer and closer. Wat does the guild do?>NIGERUNDAYOOOOOO>Stand your ground
>>5133503Whatever it is, I don't like it. I think we should get out of there.
>>5133503>Stand your ground"Wow, a literal special snowflake."
>>5133493"Oh, the guild?" Vee feigned ignorance. "They're an odd bunch, but they're mostly harmless. It's true, some things happened that really shouldn't have, but it's not like they're a criminal organization or anything. Would you like some food, by the way?" He changed the subject. "We have some enigma berries. I'm sure you've been starving down in this cramped place. We could always continue the conversation over a nice snack."
>>5133503*doesn't really notice the change in temperature, so doesn't sense any danger*>Stand your ground
>>5133503We stand and FIGHT!
>>5133503>stand ground, charge up a water gun...How many of those things are down there? Crimson, Citrine, you two can handle ice types right?
Rolled 6 (1d20)>>5133503>Stand your groundrolling to see how well the command is received"Fire types, send out a fire type move in that direction! We need to see whatever the hell that is!"
>>5133503>Stand your ground"I'm tired of running. This time we're going to FIGHT! Go get 'em Crim!"
>>5133494Callisto, slightly shocked: People? Not... Pokémon?Chrem: Yeah Callisto, they're total wierdos! I overheard some of them talking about "when they were human" and other crazy stuff when they captured me!
>>5133503"Citrine, be ready for that plan i mentioned">Stand your ground
>>5133503>Konstantin wordlessly cracks his neck and gets in a tough Boxing stance.
>>5133503"I don't like the vibe here. I say we bail.">NIGERUNDAYOOOOOO
>>5133503>>5133525>Stand your ground"You think I'm scared of an ice type, Lum?" Crimson grins at him, "I'm gonna melt 'im like it's summertime."
Rolled 11 (1d20)Rolling for how much better South was

"Does anyone else feel, cold?" Lum states hesitantly. He breathes out and sees his breath in the torchlight.
>>5133510>>5133521Callisto: So you're a guild of Pokémon that think you were once human? Hmm. (looks to Chrem) I'm sorry I ever doubted you, signorina.Chrem: I told you. Glad you believe me now, at least.Callisto: You have told me who you are, so now I will tell you who we are. (Callisto looks to his brother)Ermanno & Callisto pose together, arm blades extended outward in a salute:WE ARE THE BISHARP BROTHERS, LOYAL GENERALS OF KING SLOW'S ROYAL ARMY!Chrem jumps up and strikes her own pose: And I'm Chrem, Arceus-daughter of the King! That's right!
>>5133557So you fancy yourselves royalty? Or at least, royal guards? I should've expected that a lowly duo like would decide to serve such traitorous scum. Even if you fools were to be royal guards, to have been defeated so easily shows your lack of skill.
>>5133503The guild decides to stand their ground as a horde of Cryogonals charge them!To all Team Leaders, these Cryogonals are all level 2. There are 22 of them. Choose the amount your team will fight, and then act as the enemy pokémon. This means doing moves, HP, etc. You will also act as yourselves. Since you stood your ground, players attack first.
Rolled 3 (1d20)Crushed, captured, and caged, things are looking crummy for our chivalrous crusader! But this Corvisquire is no chicken... every obstacle is merely a minor setback, and no knight has ever cut down his enemy by giving up!

Only the dice may tell!
