[Game Thread] Pokerole: Mount Coronet Mystery
Regarding Kogeki’s Hypothesis , Ran finds it to be rather fitting set of conclusions to be drawn based on the evidence gathered thus far (AKA: All the weird and supernatural Tarous shit that’s happen to everyone in the group), but he doesn’t necessarily agrees with it. Currently, no-one really knows anything concrete regarding the mult-universe reality warping calamity and only assumptions and the information from the Pixies to go on, so he’s not ready to firmly accept one explanation/conclusion over all others yet. He’ll keep his mind open for now, and continue trying to puzzle and struggle through this insane job Rowan duped/strong-armed into.

Also, he gives a firmly nods to their and Kee’s comments upon Mt. Coronet’s newest overshadowing aesthetic. Mutual resentment and gripping about anything concerning this almost certainly doom-filled mission is something the bristly blacksmith is all to willing to agree and sympathize with!

If neither Amethyst nor Catherine has offered any input by the time everyone started pipping up on Team Formations, I figure they can’t figure out where the Stairs are or anything general about the Floor itself, so Ran would just *Sigh* but thank them for trying. A lack of intell meant the group would have to split up in order to tackle this Mystery Dungeon optimally, something he’s very much not too keen on, but never the less accepts with as much grace as he possessed. Which is to say hardly any, but hey, at least he’s trying!

Since Scizor and Kee suggests only two teams be made, Ran will back them up on it. Partially because the extra-universal Explorer recommends it, and partly because if the group has to be split up, he prefers it be done as minimally as possible!

His comment: “More thinly spread we are, the easier pickings we’ll be to whatever lurks in this Mystery Dungeon, so let’s just form two groups and get through it fast.”

He doesn’t say anything about the Party Line-ups/Partner selection for anyone (or about the individual Pokemon themselves), as it’s not his place to dictate who and [/i]what[/i] Pokemon anyone brings along for this job – or in general, period. Of course, that doesn’t mean he can’t complain about it, or offer his own Insight on the matter, but as the group can no doubt tell by now, Ran was not in the most spirited moods right now, so mute he remains for now!

Finally, after hearing both the colorful musician’s and the cyborg ninja’s input about how to form the two different Teams, the dwarven craftsman deliberates for about half a minute, before turning to the later and nodding.

“I agree with ya, Kogeki. Out of all of us, me and Lucas Skillsets and approaches to problems complement each other the most, and the between the two of us and our heavy hitters we should be fine as a two man, one independent Pokemon group. *Turns to look at Scizors* No offense meant to ya. Just considering the overall Survival logistics of our groups. “

Ran then turns to Lucas and Sally, and gives them an appraising, non-judgmental look.

“Well, if you two are okay with me tagging along with ya, that is. How about it?”

Alright, I think that decides the teams, then!

Team 1: Karen, Kee, and Kogeki (alternatively known as Team K)
Team 2: Randolph, Lucas, and Scizor

(There being stairs in Mt. Coronet actually does make some sense, as Spear Pillar was originally constructed as a shrine to Dialga and Palkia.  Those ancient people had to get up there somehow!)

--------------------------------------------------------------

Amethyst and Catherine try to focus while Scizor pulls another Explorer Badge out of his bag and explains something to Sally, and more visible confusion follows from the Lucario.  Sooo...apparently, it doesn't matter much if the groups stay in contact, so long as someone in both groups has a badge.  The badges are linked somehow, so once one group finds the stairs, everyone is able to use the badge to go to the next floor.  The badges tend to glow brighter when they're able to transport groups in Mystery Dungeons.  These Mystery Dungeons sound weirder and weirder the more I hear about them...

Scizor will hand the spare Explorer Badge to Kee.  It's glowing with the same faint light as the one pinned to Scizor's bag.

---------------------------------------------------------

As Windos hypothesized, Amethyst and Catherine are unable to pinpoint anything in the Mystery Dungeon.  Strange powers are at play here, and they're both on edge because of it.

When Randolph asks Sally and Lucas if it's okay for him to tag along, there's no objections.  "Fine by me.  Sally?"

Yeah, sure, whatever.  Let's just get this job over and done with.

-------------------------------------------------------------

No prebuffing while there's no immediate challenges to buff for, please.

--------------------------------------------------------------

So, the next question is: where to now?  There's 6 different paths leading out of this room.  Karen, Lucas, and Scizor will follow what the players in their respective groups wish to do for the time being.

(On the topic of Pre-Buffing, would Scarmory's Tailwind to speed up group travel speed only constitute as it? Just asking, not going to do it now, since the group is split.)

Hmm....in that case, Ran elects for his group to take the Center North Path, as it's good direction as any (or more likely, bad) to choose if he has no way to determine the individual/merits qualities of each Path. While the group is walking, he'll pay close attention to the topography and overall composition of the cave to see if it matches up with his Knowledge about Mt. Coronet and its Geology. He's curious ( almost dreadfully so) to see what ways the interior of the sacred mountain has changed because of its change into a Mystery Dungeon, if any.

His chosen partners out with him for now are Zorn and Diam. Speaking of which, he'll pull aside the little gemlin from the mini-group declare to them that their punishment is over, and catch them up with what happened these past couple of days. He would then give her a very stern and humorless expression that she'd be quite familiar with by now, given her mischievous nature.

"....Now, you may be wondering why you're getting off early and easy for that stunt you pulled. Simply put, it's 'cause your power and talents is now worth more than my desire to keep you locked up in the PC or put on a non-gemstone diet. Our job has gotten more complicated and disastrous than the wildest schemes you and Puck have ever come with, and the deadline for is tighter than the Coils of a Serviper, so I want all the help I can get to survive and escape the utter mess we're pronto. Keeping you detained longer and then giving you a proper scolding is time and manpower I don't want to waste right now, so consider this a rare, lucky break. "

*Stern Expression Intensifies!*

"If, though, IF you get up to trouble again while on this job, you can say Auf Wiedersehen to the rest of your diamond meals. That, and Zorn and Sekhemt will be using you as a stress toy for the remainder of it every time we camp, and I'll tell them they can be as rough as they like with ya. Bet they'd relish the chance to pay ya back with interest for all the pranks and irritation you gave them and put you through the wringer until you're flat as a Stunkfish. So if ya don't want to give them that golden opportunity, be on your best behavior until the job is done. Am I crystal clear, Diam?"

Well, is he? (Reactions from her please, mate!)
