-Julius summons Nemean Lion-
-Three guesses as to what he does to Vulcanus and the ones that aren't "Wild Charge" don't count.-
Gaius: Hey, tha- wait, you can talk?
Dr. Multimom: Oh, no. I retired from the competitive scene years ago. Had a good run as Galar champion though.
-Julius' eyes sparkle at the mention of ruins-
Ishtar: I thiiiiiink we have a winner.
"A shame. I've been reading [A Song of Ice and Fire] and wouldn't mind a set of knives with some...risque handles."
C: "Aha! I was right! Does that mean you're allergic to me?"
Roger: ~I'm a psychic type. I can communicate via telepathy.~
Will's expression perks up immediately at the word "champion".
Will (increasingly eager): Former champion? How long ago? How long was your run?
Puri: <Hoo boy, I know where this is going...>
Fuka: You did great, Lucy. Soon as I figure out a name, I'm going to introduce Meowth to everyone.
Lucy (relaxing as her wounds heal and adrenaline fades): <I can not wait...>
Fuka: Neither can I!
Me: I mean... what's the problem with wanting to train with your fellow 'Mon?
Wooloo: (indignant) <Wotís the problem? Wotís the problem?! Iíll tell ya wot the bloody problem isó ITíS PAIN! Ya tink I actually want to hurt my fellow mons?! Sure, I want to get strong- and I have! Iím Level 12! Iím the strongest Wooloo here! But I gained all my power by tackliní regular olí trees! If ever they did want me to battle, I told myself, Iíd turn down my strength just so I wouldnít have to see one oí my own FAINT! OR WORSE!>
(Elton glances in shock at the Wooloo.)
Elton: <B-but whatís wrong with fighting? I battle all the time!>
Wooloo: (indignant) <If I ever want ta "battle" anyting, itíd be all the problems happeniní in this world!>
Me: Yeah, buddy?
Piku-chan: <What is the EXP. Yield of a politician?>
Edited by AnimeboyIanpower on Feb 27th 2020 at 9:34:27 AM
Wooloo: <Ya calliní me a politician, lad?>
Kim: (looks up, thinking for a bit) ďI... did not realize politicians could receive Exp. Points.Ē
Piku-chan: <I was asking about how much EXP. you get for beating one...>
Wooloo: <Ah, I donít consider myself a politician. More... someone who woke up and wonít fall back to sleep.>
Me: I know how that feels.
(At those words, Kimís eyes light up, and she facepalms.)
Kim: ďNo, no, no... not literally, Ian; itís a [Flogging Molly] reference.Ē
Elizabeth: "Ruins it is."
Rage and Love sighed, gripping the blindfold in frustration before Mercury appeared underground, Digging under the Heatran.
The tram kicked into gear and was soon rolling along the tracks, Stylus observed the path they were taking, <It's unreal... to see train tracks still in good enough condition all these years later.>
"Transportation down here is important, it's how we haul goods and such," Artyom explained.
<What about flying types?> was Stylus's next question, <Surely they're still used to move around.>
<Not down here friend,> Khan said, <They are of more use for the Stalkers that go topside and explore the ruins of the old world for supplies. Here the corridors are too tight, there is too little lift here. A train or horse down here is of far more use.>
<Horses however can vocalize complaints so most just make use of trains, plenty of parts around,> Hunter added.
Ribbon sat and pondered that bit in thought, and then said, <Stylus we're not making a custom train car to explore.>
Stylus blinked, <I-I was not thinking of that...>
The tunnels stretched on, though the path the Tram took on the old map veered off and vanished from its cartography. Artyom had a knowing smile on his face as they passed by what appeared to be a airlock door of sorts. As they entered further, he asked, "So, where do you all come from anyways?"
Arthur just stared at Lita as Victor shrugged, "If you consider me allergic to pure raw grain stupidity, certainly. I bet there is nowhere near as infuriatingly dumb as you in this universe."
"Hey Logan, did you hear, we're going to DAAAAAIRY QUEEEEEEEEEN!"
Logan grumbled, "Arceus Damnit Chase... Why are you like this?"
"I am hilarious and you will quote everything I say," was Chase's response.
Victor sighed, "Lita why do you keep him around?"
Castle took a deep inhale from his cigarette and showed Delta the footage, "This was taken by one of our inside men a few hours ago. Seems we have unregistered competition in here, competition is all well and good, Delta-"
Delta stood there, arms crossed, helmet processing information from his agents in the field, he didn't care for Castle's remark, it was pretty clearly directed.
"-But we can't allow someone who isn't properly registered to just do what they want. So, while J is unavailable, we need you to-"
"Handle it, yes I get it," Delta said waving a hand casually, "I'll get it done. This newcomer will either come and join, pay the guild dues, or get a harsh lesson. Don't worry."
Me: <I come from Nuvema Town in the Unova Region.>
Evelyn: <I come from Ballonlea in the Galar Region.>
Hatty: <I'm from the Glimwood Tangle, also in Galar.>
Piku-chan: <Nuvema Town, Born and Raised.>
Me: <Why do I get the feeling that there might not be a "Unova" or a "Galar" here...? At least, not in the traditional sense?>
Me: <New Bark Town in Johto, born and raised.>
Me: Well, how was I supposed to know that?
-Vulcanus cringes as the Flash blinds him, and shudders at Carmen's whispers.-
Vulcanus: < THE DEPRAVITY OF MORTALS! YOU TAKE THE GODS' GIFTS AND THEN TAUNT THOSE WHO OFFER THEM! >
Outlaw: Rrgh... this is gonna get bad quickly if we let it drag on too long! Maui, cool it down!
-Maui summons a wave of water, which combines with Galen's own Surf and washes over him. The effect is severely diminished — but not completely negated — as the majority of the wave boils into a cloud of steam. Mimic and the Nemean Lion both make direct contact, and find themselves in quite literally searing pain even as they manage to damage the Cognition.-
╓────────────────────────────────────────────╢ VULCANUS ╟────────────────────────────────────────────╖ ╠╡ HP ╞══════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════╣ ║████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████║ ╚════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════╝
Vulcanus: < BE PURGED! >
-He stomps, and a web of glowing cracks along the ground spread out in paths toward Carmen, Galen, Maui, Nemean Lion, and Mimic. A jet of molten earth erupts from beneath each of them.-
Pink: -Gets hit- <Ack! Well two can play at that game!>
Galen: -Starts angrily pounding the bottom of his caduceus into the ground-
Ariadne: <I've got an idea, but it's risky...>
Omoikane: -Fires a Shadow Ball at Vulcanus-
-Groaning while looking at the sea-
Man this malaise is terrible...
Tigress: Okay... That wasn't as painful as I thought it was going to be...
Carmen: Bless that Light Screen...
Tigress: Back at it!
-Carmen leaps through the air, aiming her to drive her stilettos into Vulcanus in rapid succession.-
Hound: <Time for some ranged offense. Raijuu!>
Raijuu: The hunt is on!
-Raijuu body sparks as he howls to call down a massive blast of Thunder from the skies.-
Mona: <Ugh... Not liking this at all... Zorro, time to go all out!>
-Zorro grunts affirmatively as he slashes his rapier so fast, a shock wave is created by the vacuum.-
Director: So while a ranged attack is preferred...
Abe-no-Seimei: ...It doesn't mean can't further weaken him.
-Abe-no-Seimei traces a fiery circle in the air. The the lower part of his mask slides open to reveal a human-like mouth with pointed teeth, which exhales a jet of red and gold flames - which lowers special attack if it connects.-
Channah: -hanging out with Tagg- Well... I'm here if you need anything.
"He makes me feel better about my own self-image."
C: "Bitch please. You'd kill for bangs like mine."
Lita got a glint in her eye as her hand went to her sword.
"Maybe I will."
The former Admin Hunter and Cottom were stalking around.
Cotton: "I've gotten used to this new form quite nicely. I like the built in swords."
"Quiet. If there are any more beasties like that walking mountain we captured lurking around then getting another would surely attract the attention of the local hunter's guild. Besides we're in their territory."
-Mimic is burned, but just 'stares' nonplussed at Heatran, tongue hanging out of it's toothed chest maw-
Mimic: <Okay boomer.>
-Despite everyone's word otherwise, Mimic continues going for those melee chomps-
Anthem: <What in the nine realms is wrong with them?>
Still trying to call me out probably...
-Rakash swaps to Orpheus and does the usual thing of providing heals to anyone who looks even the slightest bit hurt. Insert your own 'healbot' joke here-
/Duck/: <I do not feel like that at all sir.>
Silas is burnt a bit, but toughs it out thanks to Solaire, "Okay smart choice there."
"I'm still insulted you know. I was gonna ask Maui for a high five."
"Why am I like this..."
Silas grunted and attempted to ignore the inner voice, there was a Heatran that needed handling. He raised a hand and grasped it, Solaire ignited and darted high up, before flying straight at the Heatran.
"Alright, time to send Grandpa Mountain back to the retirement home."
Artyom blinked and looked at Hunter, "Several of those locations, I don't know if they even still exist... what about you two?"
Stylus and Ribbon answered, <Kalos.>
"Okay I am fairly certain that doesn't exist anymore."
<You are living underground in a frozen city, what's your evidence?> Stylus asked.
Artyom sighed, "I don't have any, but we get no travelers, no contact, no word about what goes on."
Ribbon didn't like the sound of that.
The tram came to a stop, and the group was treated to the sight of large cast iron doors, in clear white paint, was the Letter D and the Number 6 on both.
"Welcome to the bunker complex, the secret treasure trove of the Metro and the myth of Metro 2, D6," Artyom said stepping off.
"Artyom!" A voice called out, and Stylus turned his head with Artyom to see a young woman followed by a Crawdaunt.
"Oh, Hi Anna," Artyom said, a little nervously.
"I see you brought back travellers. Artyom why, you know that's against the rules, only order approved-"
<If I may interject, they are not from here, and this Lucario friend of ours houses many secrets.>
Stylus soon felt himself being stared at, <What? Why are you all->
Hunter sighed and lifted up the poncho showing off the metal arm, <Suffice to say, they're more than not just from here and we need to interrogate this one.>
Anna groaned and pinched the bridge of her nose, "Okay, okay. Dad's in the command center, Artyom take the Lucario with you, I'll keep a eye on the others."
Ribbon frowned and Stylus sighed, <It'll be fine, I'll be back before you know it. Few things can stop me.>
Ribbon nodded a bit, <Okay.>
As Artyom and Stylus walked off, Anna turned to the others, "I suppose you would like a tour and history lesson?"
"Stay your hand, violence is not the answer here," Victor said, "As much as his idiocy enrages me."
Arthur shrugged, "So yeah. We're on a road trip, the Undying Slayer and Count Dracula."
Victor looked offended, "Excuse you?"
There was a rustling of leaves near the Admin Hunter and Cotton, something was approaching them.
It soon extended all around them, whatever was after them, had somehow surrounded them. Out of the shadows stepped a figure in black and orange armor, it spoke in a electronically distorted voice.
"Cease your activities and comply, and you won't lose a limb over this."
