[The video feed clicks on to reveal a man with fiery pinkish red hair trying his best to work the contraption, while a dragon sits next to him looking rather bored.]

This certainly isn't a poke-gear is it? Do you think this is how it works Dragonite?

[It seems to turn it's head to nod at him, but does little else, apparently on the look out for something.]

Well then, to anyone receiving this message, I am Lance of the Indigo League Elite Four. I woke up here finding myself with two thirds of my pokemon missing, and this device which I assume was left here by whoever is responsible. Whoever has done this, know that I will not tolerate any theft, and I especially do not appreciate being kidnapped here for whatever nefarious purpose.

If anyone knows anything about these thieves and kidnappers, I would appreciate answers so that I may teach them the true meaning of justice. I do not know where I am, or what has been done here, but I intent to find out.

[He nods solemnly at the device before turning off the device, apparently having managed to figure out how it works to a degree.]

Well, look at this. Fresh verdure, artistically forwrought walkways, monsters a--((BANG))--plenty. It's a regular party here, isn't it? And really, I've never met a friendlier crowd. It says use this, but it seems it's only brought me more trouble that its worth each time....

Hold on--Damn these Malboro...

((The feed clicks off with another bang. When it returns, Balthier is feeling equally casual as when he'd started his message.))

There, I seem to have subdued the majority of my company, or at least for the time being. Now, to business: I hear a few voices coming from this radio; care to have a little chit chat any of you? Citizens of the empire, villagers of Jahara; Humes, Seeq, Bangaa alike. I don't rightly care one way or the other. So long as I can return to Balfonheim as soon as possible.

I'm really not in the mood. ((REALLY. not in the mood.))

[ There's some fumbling as the video turns on, giving only a view of crumpled sheets, then a messy room. In the background is some slightly labored breathing, like the person recording has been running (or stumbling) around. The view stays skewed, facing a corner of the bedroom as America talks. ]

Aha! Finally found it! Okay. Man that took a while, haha! Someone decided to turn out the lights on the world. Ain't the first time in my life, and good thing is that this time it's not gas or bullets or pencils or nothing to make it hurt, but I gotta say that feelin' your way around is a helluva lot harder when you've only got one hand to do it with.

...Shit. Just realized. This think on voice recorder mode? If I'm talking when I should be writing–

[ The video switches over to voice, where some muttering can be heard, then text. ]


[ Then back to video. Now it's facing America. He looks frustrated, but his gaze is blank, eyes staring off into nowhere. ]

–nd when I make mine it'll have voice control. No, better, it'll have something that'll talk back to you so you know that you're talking into it, and it'll be in a pleasant lady's voice.

[ SIGH. Then his frustrated expression flickers to something more vulnerable, almost like a nine year old that's afraid of the dark but too proud to go to his parents for reassurance. ]

...Anyone out there?

{Well, well, well, look who's back. You'll see the view behind the Doctor's head consists of a view of Spero from the top of the University. And then the communicator buzzes and is prompty dropped with an 'ow', reverting the view to concrete and the Doctor's boots.

The man picks up the bloody thing again, but he doesn't seem to worry about it.

Hello, everyone! Sorry about that, I think my communicator shorted out or something... Should probably fix that... Can I fix that? {He trails off for a moment before remembering what he was meant to be doing.}

Anyway, sorry, again, about not being in touch, but I've been exploring this city! Spero, was it? There's loads of stuff here, I've learned a lot! Like orcas! Did you know there used to be orcas in the lake? Although, I havn't found out what happened to them all yet, but I suppose it might be the nuclear fallout, it does that sometimes, you know...

I'm coming back now, though, I've rather missed sleeping in a proper bed. And tea, I'd quite like a cup of tea.

[He'll be answering until he get's back to Discedo, and then you can come find him in person if you so desire. He might be a bit tired by that point though.]

[Luke's very unhappy and confused right now. One moment he's traveling back to London with the Professor after their latest mystery involving an opera singer, and the next he's found himself on some random street in Discedo with no idea where he or the Professor are.

Needless to say, he's a bit scared.

Hope you liked your eardrums, guys, because the moment Luke sees the communicator he grabs it and starts yelling into it.]


Professor?! Emmy? Is anyone there? I don't know where I am! I found this strange device but I'm not even sure if I'm using it right...what is this awful place anyway?

...I think I can hear growling. T-there aren't wild animals around here, are there?

[However the hell you managed to get your hands in a communicator, there is now a blonde lady in your screen, along with a few creatures that might seem all too odd, unless you come from the Pokemon world. They don't seem particularly distressed, even though Fortuna is a creepy post-apocalyptic dead land with nasty monsters that want to skin you alive; they have been here for a while.]

Everyone, I know this may be a lot to ask right now, but please, try to stay calm! I'm not sure what's going on, myself, but I can say for certain that it's not safe to to be out in the streets! If you can, try and find shelter inside the buildings as soon as possible-- and if you need help, don't hesitate to ask! These-- [She moves the camera a bit to focus on her team] --are my Pokemon, and we will try to get to you as quickly as we can.

[And considering she has a mach-speed landshark dragon of death by her side, that means it shouldn't take her long at all. Once the feed is turned off, Cynthia will be flying all over Discedo in search for new arrivals, as there sure seemed to be a whole lot of them for it to be normal. But questions will have to wait. For now, her priority is to rescue anyone in need!

... if she can stay out of trouble first, herself.]

[Last time something like this got posted, it wasn't on purpose. THIS TIME, it clearly is. Cut ooc for sheer TL;DR though hopefully it'll be entertaining and your character may even be involved (without their IC permission. Marco does that.)]

No one saying do this, no one saying be there, no one saying stop that, no one saying SEE HERE )

[Marco will also put up some banners and cooked a bunch of Mad Cow meat on a bone for Luffy, because what's the moral without reality to back it up. Or something. Anyways, happy birthday bro.]

[Hello, Discedo! There is a blonde Champion on the feed, along with... a big pair of red eyes, blinking from underneath the shadows behind her. She doesn't seem to be aware of that, though, or at least she's not particularly concerned.]

I have been meaning to do this for a while now, but I see quite a few people here have been entrusted with Pokemon since we last went exploring the old factory. As I am currently the only one in Discedo who originally came from a world inhabited by Pokemon, I would be happy to offer any kind of assistance you might need with them!

[Meanwhile, the shadowy creature behind the trainer is still lurking closely, spreading out what look like wings of some sort - except wings don't normally have claws, do they?] They're not quite like regular animals, and I admit they can be a handful sometimes, but they definitely know how to compensate for every bit of effort you put into caring for them. I'm sure you'll have a great time tog--

[Cynthia never gets to finish her sentence as the shadowy thing sort of leaps forth and everything else is darkness. Oops?]

Hey everyone, spring's coming up in this place, right? As much as it can anyway. But that's just the thing, we don't really have much for flowers or things in Discedo.

I know Japan's been pretty down lately, so I'd really like to do something to cheer him up and spruce up this place.

That said, I'd really like to put some spring murals inside the apartment buildings. I'll need anyone who can draw or paint, and we can add whatever else people think of as spring, or they just want to put in, but something that would be nice to see and come home to every day, eh?

What do you all say?

[ The video begins, Macau looking well-dressed and calm as always. ]

Fortuna, bom dia. Firstly, I sincerely hope that this message finds each and every one of you well. What with the occasionally harsh weather and other… events, it's only natural that some of you might feel a little downhearted.

I have a simple proposition to reverse that feeling. First, hard work, and then? Reward. I'm interested in constructing a casino here in Fortuna. It's something I have experience in and I feel having a place to retire to for entertainment would do many of us good.

I welcome investors, able bodies, keen minds, and suggestions for locations. Muito obrigado. [ And here it ends. Oh yes, he's completely serious. ]

[oh hi discedo enjoy a dazed and wet-looking guy staggering around the residential area

Did I say wet? I meant 'soaking'. As in 'ended up in the lake and had to swim out'. He also looks like he went three rounds against a mack truck and lost.

ALSO what a fantastic mask and suit he's wearing! Okay - ex-fantastic suit, somewhat beaten up and also wet. And the mask is... interesting. It's a pity he's too confused and slightly concussed to have remembered to take it off.]

... where...?

[And with that stunning display of mental acuity, he's supporting himself against a wall and trying to get his bearings. Not in Korea anymore, Toto!]

It seems things are finally starting to warm up around here... I was never really fond of winter, really. As a child I loved it; I would play often in the snow, but some time in my teens it seemed.... much more dreary. Perhaps it was a chance in perspective? Everything is so dead in winter. Fall is bad too; watching the leaves fall and decay.

Spring. I like spring much better. Actually, it was in the spring I was told an absolutely delightful puzzle

PUZZLE 007: Springtime

"love, petunias, happiness, apples, budding, easter, tea, and ants"

I was told these were the necessary items to have a perfect spring right about when I was turning fourteen. After she told me that, she then asked me to solve this:

Change the position of just one of the words in the sequence mentioned before so that it is in an alphabetical sequence.

I think that's when I first took an interest in puzzles as well. Tell me, residents of Discedo, do you have a favourite season? Or least favourite; I know plenty of indifferent people who have plenty to dislike.

Two men walk in opposite directions...Ah, no, no that won't do. Perhaps I should do something with numbers? Oh, but...I'm no good with numbers, am I...[ She sighs. She'd been trying to do some puzzles, to take her mind off of things, but...well, it wasn't working. ]

Drat, I've no good ideas at all!

[ There's some shuffling, and a long period of silence until she picks up her communicator, failing to notice she had already turned on accidentally. ]

Hm...well, the last week has been quite strange. Magic powers and all that? Definitely peculiar.  it seems like it would have been interesting, in a way. [ A laugh. ] Though I imagine it did more ill than it did good. I would be lying if I said I was glad I missed out, though...

[ ... ]

Ah, but that wasn't what I wanted to talk about. Actually, I'm having a problem of sorts. You see, I'm trying to come up with a puzzle--as a way to pass the time--but I'm all out of good ideas! It's simply dreadful! So, I was wondering...does anyone know how to find one's inspiration again? Really, I would appreciate the help.

Oh, and....has anyone seen Clive? I haven't seen him around, and it's a bit...well...[ Unnerving. Not that she'd say as much. ]

[The feed turns on and what greets the network isn't Adam but the face of a horse-like creature, blinking at the screen. It nuzzles the communicator a couple of times before the ranger's voice can be heard.]

Hey, what are you doing over there, huh?

[The horse neighs slightly before it scoots away, showing the man come up to it, petting its head.]

No, you didn't do anything wrong. Still curious on how you turned the thing on.

[He picks up the communicator and focuses again on the horse creature.]

I'm trying to think of a name for this girl, anyone got any suggestions?

Okay, are you ready? Wait, lemme get your hair fixed up again. ((There's a shuffle; now, if drunken people could be identified by the little sounds they made, THEREEEEE'S definitely no sober person in this post. Giggles and singing.)) There. Totally Cute. You think? --Okay, let's do this.

Uhh.. OH! To protect the world from devastation

To denounce the evils!!! Of truth! And love? Wait, what? Love isn't evil. Yea, I thought that was weird to... ((they squint thoughtfully.)) Maybe they mean indulgence... I guess that makes sense......((More squinting........ WHATEVER!))

 [It's been a couple of rough days and Adam's glad to be back to his youthful self. He had just learned that Conan's frequency had gone off the network and would assume that he went home. Sadly, he didn't think so: if Heiji and Japan had arrived back within a week and that woman who owned the motorcycle he borrowed (Thanks for that Kresnik: remind him to give you a good kick for that.), then he's not going to say anything until after the time is up.

But he will bring up that broadcast from late last night. So the feed turns on to a serious looking ranger.]

So if you didn't notice that broadcast for other than the bull about the 'hot steamy romance', something else was getting our attention: my kid and her boyfriend decided to get a little too crazy with machinery and somehow summoned a zoo. While I personally don't have a pet, some of you might and I doubt you want them cramped up in that room.

If anyone wants to go to this place Kain wants us to look at, let me know when you want to go and I'll take you there. It'll be better to have someone who's on the Watch to keep an eye on things while traveling there. If a group wants to go, then I'll make a list of who wants in on this little road trip.
