Previously on Medieval Pokemon QuestA 14 year old boy is sent on his pokemon journey with his trusty Turtwig, Teddy. Hunting in the the forest and checking out a lake nets him Carla, the Clauncher. We travel to Bluerock city and join up with a trading ship. Bunking with the wealthy Jesse, Barry learns to sail and trains his pokemon. Barry escorts Jessie to her ultra-rich uncle and learns of the civil war taking place in Hoenn. After a night at a mansion, the pair explores the jungle and gain new partners, a Bagon and Croagunk. They then walk through the botanical garden and return to the ship.On the trip home against the currents, a pirate ship is spotted and board the Painted Wailord. The pirate captain attacks your room with his Greninja. Luckily, we fight off the scum and watch Teddy evolve. Resting against the wall, you have a highpoint in every boy's life, your first kiss. You are informed that as the slayer of the pirate captain, you are now the owner of his ship. You rename the Grim Greninja the Garrulous Grotle. You and Jessie get kitted out in poke-armor, then you meet her parents. An awkward dinner later, you leave and wake in the morning to see Jessie and her fatherThread 1: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/34509629/Thread 2: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/34534124/
If we had gone with the time skip would we have spent 10 years on a boat?
>>34555676No, three years on the ship and trading. You would be a full Captain, not just one in nameInventory:>Aggron Steel Grosse Messer Sword>Bisharp Steel Parrying Dagger>Gogoat Horn Recurve Bow>Aegislash Shield(choose a size, forgot that yesterday)>Aron Steel Helmet>Empoleon Steel/ Tyrunt Leather Armor>The Garrulous GrotleTeamGrotle(Teddy): Tackle, Withdraw, Absorb, Razor LeafClauncher(Carla): Water Gun, Vice Grip, BubbleBagon(Brandt): Bite, Leer, Headbutt
I'm still not entirely convinced we should go the route of full-on captain, especially given the fact that we will have a Torterra before long.
Looking down at the pair on the dock, the older man out of place in his fine silk, you are happy to see Jessie and her father. Throwing on your best vest and puffiest shirt, you slide down the one of the tarred ropes securing the boat. Alighting on the dock, you walk over to the pair."Hello sir, I'm pleased to see you again. Will your wife be joining us?" you speak directly to the man, keeping your gaze from Jessie."Thank you master-, sorry, Captain (Insert Last Name). Sadly my lady wife dislikes the sea. That is a fine ship you have, do you know when you will be sailing her again?" the dark haired gazes up at the main sail and fore jib."Well sir, as you can see, the crew is loading her with goods and provisions. We should be set to go in three days," you gesture over at the Machokes carrying boxes and bolts of fabric, "We sail northwest to the Hoenn archipelago.""All good, all good. If I could inquire, would you be willing to hold off leaving? i have been massing my ships to go the same way. Safety in numbers and all that">Wat do?
>>34556078Go along with it, it's perfectly sensible.Also, are we going to have a crew or just pokemon helping us man the ship?
>>34556078Surname of Mikon>Sure, will you or Cassie be accompanying your fleet?
>>34556078So ocean caravan? I can dig it. Your ship is too small to handle anything more than a small pirate group anyways, and what with that hoenn civil war, that means privateers will be about. Safety in numbers.On an aside note, what pokemon ARE available in the area?
>>34556126Captain Diamond suggested a few young men, all were eager to advance in rank. You have a small crew, including the Painted Wailord's first mate Eion Colpher.
>>34556161here, hoenn, or the ocean? Here is a temperate bio with some mountains a day's walk away. Warning, most people don't have a full set of six pokemon. Too expensive to feed and house
>>34556213Yeah, but four is a good number. Besides, we lack a fire type. Always gotta have a fire type.And I was thinking "here" whatever this place is.
>>34556244Well Bagon can learn ember, so that's somethingAnd on that note, is there a way to tech pokemon new moves? I'm assuming TMs don't exist in this era.
>>34556347having something that knows it show the pokemon. Some moves are just learned as you grow, others you need to learn.
seems like we are waiting. What do you do in the extra time?
>>34556386>>34556472name fell off, last two comments are mine. vote for week plans
>>34556496Train a few days, ask if we might call upon Jessie, if hes says no, sneak in via the roof. Practice commanding the crew the rest
>>34556078No surname. We're a nomad and belong nowhere.
>>34556472Ask if Jesse wants to join on training our Pokemon
>>34556472Definitely train your bagon and clawncher. Always gotta be up-to-snuff
Train"Of course sir, that sounds like a good idea. I shall inform the crew tonight. I'm surre they will be toasting you when they're in their cups. Would you like a tour of the ship, the woodworking is abnormally good for a pirate vessel.""No thank you, I'm sure that you have better things to do than entertain me. Come along Jessie" the gentleman turns on his heel, looking back when his daughter doesn't follow"Thanks Daddy, I was hoping to spend some time with Barry. We're gonna go train together." the heiress grabs you hand and pulls you onto the ship.You get your team and spy the squat frog pokemon hiding atop some crates. He walks over and stands with Jessie, her Joltik resting on his head. Your convoy waits for Mr. Korda to disappear over a slight hill, before walking for to the city gates. Once free of civilization, you troop into the forest to train and get meat for the trip>One week laterYou walk hunched over, carrying a large number of bidoof skins and jerky. Teddy walks against a roughly made harness, dragging a sled of more forest animals. One Stantler, a full grown buck, lies in pieces, killed with a well aimed Razor Leaf. Both you and Jessie are caked in dirt, with twigs and leaves sticking from your short hair. Stopping at Carla's lake, you wash up and prepare to go back to civilization.In the wet tunic, you board the ship, dropping the meat and fur at the galley. Looks like Bidoof chops and Stantler burgers are gonna be the staple for the trip.Mr. Korda's view:The child captain is dragged away by your willful daughter, onto the pirate ship. A large frog, Croagunk you think, takes peeks at you from on top a crate. She could end up with worse, even if he is a nomad. Fourteen and already steering a vessel, the boy shows promise. You dearly hope the two will be safe.
>>34557057>Mr. Korda's view:
>>34557057So are we just waiting for Mr. Korda's dockmaster or whoever to show up to tell us to get with the caravan?
Onboard the Garrulous Grotle you spend most of your time with Colpher, learning the commands and tricks to sailing ships. However, you have some spare time in the evening and night. What do you want to do in this time?>Sword fighting>More Sailing>Learn to read>Unarmed fighting>Pokemon>Other
>>34557177Learning to read, needa navigateis jessie sticking with us now? if so learn from her
>>34557177>More Sailing>Learn to readIf we can, learn from Jessie
>>34557177>Learn to readProbably smart to be able to do that, seeing how we're in a position of authority. Sure we can always have others read for us, but that's weak.I'm sure Jesse can help us out here, too.
>>34557057Did Barry just bathe with a girl?
>>34557251this kid is denser than Aggron steel. He didn't realize he was sleeping three feet away from a girl for almost a month. But yes[/spoiler
>Learn to readThe sailing charts confound you to no end, with their cramped letters and notes. Realizing the importance of literacy, you set out on a quest to read. You steer the ship close to Mr. Korda's ship, the Scowling Scolipede. Carla launches a rope and ball onto the railing, her targeting systems perfectly looping the weight around the wood. You climb across, ignoring the drop to tropical waters below. Walking into the cabins, you knock on doors until you find Jessie's(third on the left). You knock, then sit next to her at a desk. Conveniently, she already has a book out. Talking it over, and explaining your quest, you convince Jessie to teach you.>The next week"The his-history of Ho...hoenn is a rich and fab... fabu...""Fabulous" Jessie looks over your shoulder at the history book."Thanks. Fabulous tale of riv...rival brothers, Archie and Maxie." you stumble through the words, tripping on the u's and ie's. Another twenty minutes and you turn the thick page.>You can now read at a second grade reading level>Mr. Korda ViewThat kid is spending a lot of time in Jessie's room. What are they doing in ther- oh shit. No. No, that boy wouldn't think of it. Better send in a server every now and then. Just in case. That boy's to dense to do think of that. Or he's just acting! Arceus knows how you were when you were that age. I'll just poke my head in
>>34557742D'aww, bless Mr Korda...
You are now banned from Jessie's room. For some reason, Mr. Korda doesn't like you spending time with Jessie. Weird, he seemed fine with you sharing a room.The ships cut through the emerald waters of Hoenn, the trade winds blowing you towards riches. Coming to harbor on the docks of Lilycove city. Larger than Bluerock, the markets make up a large portion of the city, with an eighth of the city being the Grand Market. The crew ties up the ship at your mooring post, and trows down the bridge, then start carrying the cargo to the market. The faces of the locals stare at the mass of ships, thin faces following the grain and meat.>Wat do>Go to the Market>Meet with the other captains>Wonder off>Wonder off with Jessie
>>34558215Take Jessie to the markets, try and avoid her dad if possible, stop hungry hoenn skeletons from trying to steal from the crates

>>34558215>Mr. Korda doesn't like you spending time with Jessie. Weird, he seemed fine with you sharing a roomGod damn it Berry."Hey Mr. Korda my crew keeps asking if I've done it with Jessie yet. What's "It"?"
>Meet the CaptainsA messenger was sent to your ship, bearing the message that the captains and merchants were meeting on the Scowling Scolipede. Walking down the gangplank, you shout for Colpher to guard the cargo. You climb up to the Scolipede, and enter the meeting, taking place in the wheelhouse of the ship. Sitting at a felt covered table are ten men, one for each ship in your convoy. You sit at the vacant seat on the left side of the table. Looking round, you recognize Captain Diamond and Jessie's father."All right, now that we're all here, we can start. As agreed upon, we shall not undercut each other's prices, selling grain at 400 gold a bushel and meat at 10 gold a pound. The rest of goods are subject to demand, charge what you will." Mr. Korda addresses the captains, standing at the head of the table. Some captains begin to quarrel over mooring spots, complaining about their distance from the markets. You don't see the problem, they were the last ships to moor, and Colpher says that they don't replace their sails often making them slower than the rest of the group.You zone out for a time, listening with half an ear, perking up at interesting snippets"We should only sell to Aqua, seems like they would be the best for us.""Heard talk of a big battle on Mt. Chimney""Magma wants a lot of steel, any of you bring any? Wonder what they'll do with it"As lunch is served, the talk dies down and ends, freeing you from the room. Teddy wakes up from his spot on the deck, and walks over to your side. Scratching the underside of his neck, you knock Jessie's room. She looks over from her book, looks like the Poke-bible, and stands stretching. She grabs her belt with knives and coin purse, anticipating your suggestion. The two of you walk over to the dock, leaving your pokemon behind.(Choose one pokemon to bring)>Wat do?

>>34559422never decided, once you marry Jessie, we can decide if you want to wait
>>34559455I like the idea of simply not having a surname. Then we can take on hers.
>>34559487Sounds good to me
>>34559487Don't assume that we'll end up marrying jesseAsk not for who the waifus appear for. The waifus appear for YOU
>>34559621I don't assume, I actively plot towards.
>>34559621I'll admit I'm currently pushing for Jesse, but if presented with more options I'll be plotting towards whatever end that seems most in-character and interesting for the progression of the story
>>34559621. . . Wow, I'm an idiot. made an accidental trip on another board, and then used who instead of whom.
>Let Jessie LeadYou drop Teddy off at the ship, he probably doesn't want to move much today. It's sunny out, and he tends to sleep a lot in this weather. As you enter your cabin, Carla jumps up and scuttles onto your shoulder. Now wearing a shellfish as a scarf, you exit with Jessie. She leads the way through the streets of Lilycove, first driving through the market. The two of you wind through stalls for all items, ending up in small plaza with a fountain and marble columned building. The two of you, accompanied by Carla and Joltik, sit on cool marble. Carla slips off your shoulder into the water, swimming with the goldeen and luvdisc. You walk over to one of the vendors, and purchase two jelly filled doughnuts. Bring them over, you see Joltik has spin a small raft for him/herself(you don't know the sexual characteristics that show the gender of spiders). You hand a doughnut over to Jessie and watch her bite into the sticky ball of rice.1/2
Your snack over, Carla pulls Joltik over to the wall and climbs out of the fountain. With the wet crustacean on your neck, Jessie leads you back through the markets. Your pair stops occasionally, looking over the weapons or jewelry for sale. A helmet made from a Tyranitar catches your eye, then a silver necklace with pink crystals from a Diancie glints in the box of a jeweler. Leaving the markets behind, you end up south of the docks, standing in the soft sand of the beach. Carla scurries into the surf, then pops back up, hosing the two of you with seawater. Carla might have been aiming for Joltik, they don't get along well. Now soaking wet, the two of you wade into the waves. A few hours pass, in which Carla shoots more water, but due to a rough wave ends up shooting across the water>Carla learned Aqua JetYou and Jessie lie together in the sand, the bright sun baking the water from your clothes. Jessie's looking a little pink, she doesn't go out in the sun much. Closing your eyes, the world goes black, and when you open them again, the sun is touching the sea. Red and yellow suffuse the waves, drawing your attention from your body. Looking down, Jessie has curled up against you, smiling as she sleeps on your tanned arm>Mr. Korda ViewIt is nice to be in the hot sun. Bluerock is nice, but so dank in the winter. Perhaps when this war ends, you'll buy a house out here. Taking the telescope from your cabin, you gaze into the city, strafing the markets and beach. Oh, thats nice. Some couple fell asleep on the beach. Wait... son of a bitch.
After waking the sleeping Jessie, the two of you walk together to the "Scolipede". Leaving jessie at the now forbidden room, you walk down the dock towards the "Grotle". You feel a light touch on your waist, you look down and see your deflated coin purse and a dark figure running back into a alleyway.>Wat do?>Follow the pickpocket>Let it go>Climb up the building, get a bird's eye view>Other

>>34560598Yell loudly "STOP! THIEF!" to alert others.
Rolled 82Hell no. This is not gonna happen to you. You are the pickpocket, not him. Grabbing hold of Carla and finding her wrapping herself around your hand, you find that you now have a arm mounted water cannon.+New skill: Arm ClauncherRunning after the thief down the alley, you spot their boot, turning right. Running full out, you turn the corner to spot the thief once more. Their red hair streams back, like a Pyroar's mane. Firing off jets of water, you blast the pickpocket in the leg. The thief continues, reaching a dead end in the street. He turns, a small knife clutched in his freckled hand.Shooting out another beam of water at the knife, you see the hand bend back from the force, before the blade spins from his hand. Now unarmed, you look up at the thief's face. And ample chest."Hey man, a girls got to eat. The greedy merchants are charging 10 gold for a pound of shitty salt meat." The girl eyes the pokemon on your wrist and the large red and gold dagger on your hip. "Course, that probably is chump change to someone like you. That a Pawniard blade? Rich brat like you got daddy to buy it for you.>Wat do?
>>34560805Well, I'll have you know, I worked hard for my money and I never had a father.But if you promise to behave, truly behave, I can afford you a meal on my ship.
>>34560805>You are the pickpocket, not him.Since when? We had the option to but never played the role of thief."...Grew up a nomad, got a job as a sailor, killed a pirate captain, got his boat and then you just stole the last of the reward money."Then just stare at her.

>>34560857>>34560909Some combination of the two seems good.
Even though I really wish we could get a Cubone, I also think we should try to limit how many Pokemon we have. We don't have Pokeballs or Poke Centers in this setting so having too many will get really inconvenient.
>>34561846Weren't there nuts or fruit or something that acted as pokeballs? I'm sure they aren't common but they have to be somewhere.Besides that, we should focus on having smaller pokemon.
>>34561892>focus on having smaller pokemon.I can see it now>JOLTIK RUSH
>>34561892And we got to make sure we have time to care for all of them. They are friends, not pets.
>>34561892Apricorns, I think you mean.And besides. in the old Pokemon Adventure manga, pokemon were kept physically and captured with nets or friendship (Although the comic was never canon)>>34561919I would be lying if I said that I didn't love this idea.
>>34561846wasnt there a pokecentre in bluerock or something?
>>34561969It was a tavern/inn
>>34561919Cubone is a small pokemon
>>34561946Sure sure, but if we can discover apricorns, imagine the enterprise we could build around that.Or if they're already discovered, we can open up trade of them.
>>34562481>end of quest>we find out our nomad is from the Sylph clan
>>34560805So, what are our thoughts about the new waifu? Should we try to bring her along the Garrulous Grotle? Or not take the bait, get our money back, and continue romancing Jessie?
>>34562859romance both, see how long we can juggle it until it all blows up, duh
>>34562859Eh, I'm not feeling it. Maybe she'll be useful for information gathering or something. Don't want to take her along, and sure don't want her replacing Jessie.
Is OP kill? its been 2 hours
>>34562951See >>34560960He'll be back eventually
>>34562859Give her a shot at honest work, if she ever betrays the trust we put into her we'll deal with it then.Keep on being oblivious to our romancing of Jessie.
I'm back bitches. rejoice. writing up the next part
"I worked for that money and this dagger. I used to be like you, stealing for fun and cause rich people didn't deserve to have more than me. You wanna know what I did? I got a job, and after that, I got lucky. I got something that changed my life, and I appreciate it. Because even through I was poor, probably more than you, I rose above it. That is why I deserve what I have." The thief girl slowly grows red between her freckles as you talk. "So, yeah, you could steal my money, probably buy you food for the fortnight. But what are you gonna do after it runs out? The next person you rob might not understand why you did it, and that will get you killed. If you want to, you can keep the money, I can make more. Or you can come with me for something to eat. You'll have to pay though, I'm all out of cash."The red on the girl's face grows brighter with your last comment, and she drops her head. Walking forward, you take the gold from her slender fingers."I'm Barry, pirate slayer and captain of the Garrulous Grotle" you introduce yourself to your thief."I'm Alyssa... wait what. You're a captain. Of a ship. And you killed a pirate" the redhead questions you. Its not that strange, so what if you are only fourteen. There are stories of a ten year old general named Red. Captain seems low compared to general.You walk the red haired and handed thief to the closest restaurant cart and buy kebabs for yourself and Alyssa, and a small hunk of meat for Carla. Walking with the food, you lead Alyssa to the Garrulous Grotle and talk to her in a spare cabin.>Next day, wat do
>>34563929Get to know Alyssa: Find out her age, why she was stealing or if she have any familyMaybe introduce her to Jessie
>>34563956>introduce her to JessieThere is no way this can end badly.Hopefully we do this while her father is within earshot."This is a girl who was trying to rob me so I gave her a cabin."
>>34563954Find out if she have a Pokemon
>>34563929>ten year old general named RedYou know how to entertain me Prof>>34563956Yeah, this sounds good. Should also find out whether she has any skills beyond theivery
>>34563929>Ten year old general named Red.Okay, so THAT'S how this universe works. I misunderstood the initial premise. This is basically an alternate reality, not a historical exploration. And for some reason I'm reminded of the Bartimaeus trilogy. . .Introduce alyssa to the crew first. Say that she's uh. . . handy with a dagger. That much is true.
>>34563954>>34563956This +Offer her a spot on your ship, thieves are dex so shed make a good crows nest
>>34564025That's how Barry started out too...The implications are clear...She's going to steal Jessie from us
>>34564019She can start scrubbing the decks, anyone can do that.Anyone else having issues posting?
>>34564057Yes massively, but I've only just got a dodgy working wifi connection so I just assumed it was that at play.
>>34564120For me 4chan is literally the only site I have problems with
Good night guys
>Give Alyssa a job, and ask about her life"Okay, before I do anything, I have to know why you were robbing people."You start off with the thief, watching for any telltale movements that would give her away."Fine. I'm fourteen years old and from the northern part of Sinnoh. My family left when I was a baby, so I lived on a small farm west of here. I stole your gold because I was desperate. What with the war, all the men in my village were sent to fight for Magma. Without my brother, I was all alone and couldn't grow anything. I sold the farm, but the money barely lasted me a month here. I don't know if Silas is still alive, last we heard was that Magma lost at Mt. Chimney." No obvious ticks that you can spot, either she's telling the truth or she is a great liar."Well, thats a good enough reason for me. I would have done the same if things got that bad. Do you have any skills, purely so I can have an excuse for giving you a job" you say, thinking of the skeleton crew you have currently."My brother and I would make barrels for the village, so I know some carpentry." A cooper, perfect. "If you can do that, it seems that you have a job. The Garrulous Grotle happens to be in need of a cooper, and you can work with the carpenter as well." This is good, you help a person out and you gain a valuable asset to the ship. You lead Alyssa to the carpenter, Mister Cahill. Leaving them, you return to your work at reading.
You have a few days before the convoy is ready to leave. Most of your grain and meat is gone, along with the rum and textiles. No doubt the hold will be empty on your way back, the strong box heavy with gold. What do you want to do with your time?>Wat do?
>>34564533Go pokehunting with Jessie. I guess Alyssa better come too, get her a pokemans if the opportunity arises.But yeah, new land, new pokemans!
>>34564533Get Alyssa a Pokemon. Train your own.
>>34564533Talk to Jessies dad about the forbidden from her room thing, not that its so bad but it seems he's worried about something. So go to him directly and address, see if there is a way to appease him it or it may lead to trouble on the way back.
>>34564608Yeah, we should probably address this at some point. I still vote go pokemon hunting first though
Rolled 3 (1d12)>>34564533Go pokehunting with only Alyssa
>>34564654Well if we're going out to pick her up, we can talk to him first. Better than somehow doing something to piss him off in the intervening time.Hell he may approach us at that time anyway, better we take the initiative.

>>34564814I still thing a Spinarak is a good idea because spiderbuddies with joltik
>>34564903I agree with ralts and aron
>>34565121Also just noticed trapinch, gotta get a flygon
>>34564978We'd need a stone to evolve that from a lotad, though. Who knows how available those are. >>34565121>>34564903>aronI don't want to get anything that can't conceivably float (or fly)
>>34565151We're already set to have a dragon type and a ground type. Flygon is just sort of redundant.
>>34565195Salamence will be plenty awesome, if we can even get him. I think we ought to diversify. I suggested Aron and Ralts earlier, and I understand not wanting something that can't be transported too easily, but if we evolve Teddy into the Torterra he was always destined to be, we'll have that same problem. Having an Aggron in a medieval setting seems like a great idea to me.Jessie getting the Ralts makes total sense, I'm behind that plan.
>>34565378Aron is another (eventually big) heavy pokemon that's as good as dead if falls overboard.Mankey has limbs and hands for shipboard utility much like the sailors machokes. Also he can perhaps learn thunder and fire punch to round out our elemental availaability.
>>34565378But having TWO large and bulky pokemon is a problem. We already have torterra, so another slow guy will ju->>34565442Yes what this guy said. (Although spinarak is also good which is why I suggested that too)
>>34565442We'd just get aggron to cling to the prow and then sail into our enemies
>>34565462Also, apparently Aggron can be taught surf. I'm not expecting HM's to feature in any way in this quest but it DOES imply Aggron's aren't so insta-drown as they might appear.Plus, if we ever fight a land battle (say, attacking a castle) Aggron would be a tremendous asset
>>34565545And as for a flygon - we might not have pressing need of it but I'm sure a comrade would be more than happy to take care of one
Final Pokemon vote, what you looking for?
>>34565796My votes are for ralts, trapinch and aron in that order.
>>34565796Aron for us, Ralts for Jessie, Shinx for Alyssa.
Rolled 7 (1d12)>>34565796mankey
>>34565796Gotta go with a Ralts or Shinx. Maybe Spinarak.
Rolled 6 (1d12)>>34565886>>34565828Guys, just imagine a Mankey with an eyepatch, swinging from our ropes with a cutlass in hand. Its a beautiful thing
>>34565796Mankey for us and a Shinx for Alyssa. We won't take Jessie with us
>>34565959Why wouldn't we take Jessie?
>>34566021Jessie is old and busted, Alyssa is the new hotness
My final vote is a spinarak.>outdated meme about loneliness.jpg
>>34565796Lets pick up a mankey for us and a Ralts for Alyssa.I think we should stay away from Jessica for a bit until her dad calms his shit
>>34566150Nah, he'll only think of you hanging with another girl as you just chasing after any old girl, making it even worse.
>>34566150I'm still voting for making the direct and forward approach there >>34564608
>>34566150>Mr. Korda ViewThe little Nomad has been ignoring my daughter in favor of some street rat he picked up. Any girl will do it seems.
>>34566206Exactly. As it stands he seems to begrudgingly accept you being close to Jessie, he's just paranoid about potential hankypanky
>>34566244So we alleviate his fears by making it perfectly clear we are denser the a geodude's core and then we'll see how Jessie deals with us being a dipshit and hanging out with Alyssa
Since we're clearly going to initiate the waifu war soon, what does Jessie look like? I don't remember a proper description.
>>34565796Regarding final pokemon vote, I don't think we'll find a consensus so how about making a dice roll with the votes per pokemon determining the odds
>>34566352She looks like a boy
You send the weighted rope across the water again, thanking Carla and climbing across the tarred rope. Jumping on the deck, you walk to the cabins. Opening the door to the aftercastle, you bump into Mr. Korda and his Scolipede. Thinking now would be a good time to talk, you open with some of your best arguments.Mr. Korda ViewOh, so you want to spend more time alone with Jessie in the room of my one and only daughter. Haha, no. Silly nomad, I say you on the beach. I swear to Arceus, if you do anything to my daughter, I will feed you to the silly little crustacean clinging to your arm. Then again, its better than them going off on their own. At least here, you can keep an eye on him. Fine, you can just have a carpenter cut a hole in her wall. If this little boy even thinks about Jessie that way, you can hear and interrupt. Wait... oh he stopped. Shit think of something to say!"Well Barry, you have convinced me, you may entertain my daughter in her room. But remember that you are still on my ship." the old man agrees to your proposal, only to watch as you walk into his daughter's room and exit again with her."Bye Daddy, see you soon. Me and Barry are going to explore while we have time."One more crossing of the rope, and another to help Jessie across, and you introduce Alyssa to Jessie. For some reason, Jessie seems to dislike the perky redhead. Fitting on your armor, you lend Alyssa your bow. Turns out she did some hunting while a farmer.1/?
The three of you walk out, you with Carla, Jessie carrying Joltik, and Alyssa with the Gogoat bow. Climbing the hill, you walk along a cobble road, then turn into the forest. Trekking through the jungle seems to scare Jessie, for she seems to be hanging closer to you than normal. Alyssa stays back a bit more, holding a notched arrow on the bow. A chattering pierces the trees, a series of short "keykeykey"s. You and Alyssa raise your ranged weapons, while Jessie's Joltik rubs up against her hair. A short white snout is forced through the canopy, followed by a pair of beady eyes. You press your finger against Carla, prompting her to launch s jet of water at the pokemon. The jet hits the pokemon square in the snout, due to Carla's careful aim. The pokemon falls from the vegetation, landing in a crouch. Around the same size Teddy was before the battle, the furry little pokemon stands on it's hind legs, baring it's fangs and flexing it's muscled arms. You place a small hunk of berry and honey in the claw near your wrist, and press Carla's side again. She fires a weaker beam of water at the pokemon, launching the candy in front of the creature. The pokemon reaches for the treat, sniffing it before stuffing it and the hand holding it into it's maw. The mankey turns it's head, savoring the sweet. Deciding, the mankey walks bowlegged to you. You pet him and fish out another chunk of sweets for the mankey>Mankey Befriended, insert names
>>34566438Insofar as being young with short cut hair and male clothes.
>>34566471Call him Jack
>>34566471Mankey D. LuffyThe best pirate pokemon around
>>34566352yeah, did that on purpose. She has a heart shaped face, framed by short cut black hair. Slender, slightly shorter than you. Bright green eyes and pale skin.
>>34566551On that note, I;ve thought of another surname for our protag: Barosa
>>34566562Seconding this, might as well start ripping off other animes
>>34566551Me tooPotC references ftw
>>34566583Remind me what Alyssa looked like again? I just remember red hair and freckles
Now with a sixth member to your band, you follow the lead of the Mankey. He leads from above, swinging through the low branches and hanging while waiting for you to catch up. After an hour following him, you find yourself on the bank of a small lake. Lying in some tall grass, a blue cat-like pokemon rests in the shade. Creeping closer, you find that the cat has a large wet red patch on it's side. Alyssa rushes forward, fumbling for an Oran berry. Lifting the cat's head, Alyssa slices slivers of the berry off and pushes them past the large canines. As you watch, the wound on the pokemon scabs over. The scab begins pealing away in strips as new muscle and skin form. A light fuzz of short blue fur is is all that remains of the life threatening gash. Falling asleep, the pokemon opens one golden eye and nuzzles her savior. You camp by the lake, roasting some goldeen over a bed of coals. The next morning, the cat, which stays by Alyssa's side, is standing and speaking in it's feline language.With the group yet one more larger, you set off back towards Lilycove city. After lunch, you are walking with Jack upon your shoulders. You make a joke about piggy back rides, received with much groaning from your companions. Jack liked it though, which is a good consolation prize. The group is startled, as a white pokemon appears in front of you. It turns it's green capped head at you, then swinging it's red horn to point at Jessie. Before you can think, the pokemon half jumps, half teleports into Jessie's arms, which swing up to catch the small pokemon. The pokemon shifts, turning it's back facing horn at you and a wave of happiness and contentment washes over you. Shaking off the feeling, your group continues but every so often the horn points to you.
The cargo holds in the convoy's ships are empty, and provisions are once more being loaded onto the ships. The strong box on your ship is full with gold from the price gorging. You hand out pay to the crew, cutting into the gold. Provisions and Captain Diamond's cut is also factored in, leaving you with enough money to pay yourself and leave money for the rest of the trip. You are leaving tomorrow, you have time to do one thing.>Wat do?
>>34567404>Count all the money
>>34567404Have Alyssa come count money with us
>>34567496I scowl at you!> Go learn literacy with Jessie
>>34567404>>34567527I guess I'll join team "voice of reason".Added bonus: Have Alyssa count money. Promise to pay her for proper totals. If we're lucky, she might become our accountant!
>>34567404Screw work and training for a day. Just go hang with Jessie doing something fun.>>34567451How good are we at math, anyway?>>34567496Aha, naw.>>34567527Go buy some books?
>>34567404See if Alyssa knows how to read, if so she can teach us, if not she can learn with us under jessie.Its good to be taught by multiple people who may know different ways to approach one skill
>>34567566I'm sure we already have better people for that.
>>34567606NONSENSE. WE MUST BE THE BETTER MAN. WE MUST BE JONATHAN JOESTAR.
>>34567566If we're really lucky, she won't embezzle!>>34567591Seems reasonable>>34567572Buying books is a plan, we can learn without being reliant on Jessie's collectionAll that said though,> Screw work and training for a day. Just go hang with Jessie doing something fun.
>>34567572addition and subtraction are okay, anything more complex is met with a blank stare
>>34567591I like this idea
>>34567647So, go buy books with Jessie and spend the day hanging out.
>>34567591Seems like the most fair plan
>>34567591First off, I kinda doubt she doesSecondly, if we can learn with Jessie we should, because Alyssa a shit
>>34567663I guess we should eventually brush up on the final half of our arithmetic, but to be honest, beyond that? What other math skill would be that useful?
>>34567694We can do this at any time though, hardly something to spend our last day on land doing
See if Alyssa can read, read with the girls. Good?
>>34568047Buy some books too if there's time
>>34568047Sounds like we could take both the girls out for book shopping and maybe the library.
>>34568047Yes, book shopping possibly as well
You take a break from finances, the numbers spinning in your mind. You stop at the poop deck, where Alyssa is working with Mister Cahill. You talk with the twenty something, checking on their project. Just the replacement of a pulley, you ask if Miss Alyssa is crucial to the project. Learning that she isn't, you ask for her company. Mister Cahill winks back at you as the two of you leave. Walking down the gangplank like a normal person, you walk to the Scowling Scolipede. Finding Jessie lounging on the deck with Ralts, you get hit with another wave of joy. Clearing your head, you ask Jessie to come with you to the markets for some books.Pushing up from the chair, Jessie walks to your side. Your trio complete, you walk down the plank towards the market. The market seems full today, but with you as a spearhead, you move through the crowds with ease. Wonder why their all here. Finding a small book shop, Jessie sets on the scientific diagrams. Alyssa hang back at the counter, looking at some small story books. You decide to get an assortment of books, piling textbooks and fairy tales together. Jessie grabs a few for herself, and you notice Alyssa buying a history book on Red. The cover must have been destroyed, for it has been replaced by a fanciful painting of an shirtless adult Red and a woman in his arms.Loaded down with the parchment, your group wanders back to the Garrulous Grotle, where you lie in the sun next to Teddy and read. >Thats all for today, end threadQuestions, Comments and Advice below if you have it
>>34568570Yeah I think we're doing fine. Only real complaint would be about the time it takes to post, but that can't be helped.I'd like it if the developing relationships aren't too... predictable. Stereotypical. Especially where Aly is concerned.
