• Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.

    Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.

    Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?

    Nolan ran a fingertip against his temple, and hummed in thought – not disagreeably. "I wish you and your 'cohort' the best of luck, Ms Odette. In truth, Personnel will eagerly take any human hires they can find, whether there's gainful employment for them or not, but I imagine you won't be...

    "Is that so?" Nolan muttered to himself, quietly, as Odette clarified that her pokémon were sapient. The lizard's reactions were hard to read at the best of times but if anything, he seemed a little perturbed to imagine a trainer keeping sapients 'in line'. Whatever his real feelings, he didn't...

    "A detective? Fascinating. If you prove credible and competent, it's not impossible you might find a placement in my own department," murmured Nolan, thoughtfully. He drummed the fingers of one hand on the table, and sipped at his drink. "I know what a pokémon trainer is," he added...

    Frontier Town Sun Stone Saloon

    Nolan nodded to indicate that Sun Stone had been to his liking, insomuch as he liked anything. He took the glass. He sipped, neatly. He listened to Odette imply she would join the Covenant, and his eyes examined her, that analytical inclination of his moving from Ignatius' black books to the...

    Nolan cleared his throat lightly. "I do remember, yes. I would care to take some time to become familiar with the minutiae of these document, so refreshments would certainly be appreciated." He didn't look or sound particularly appreciative, but he did offer a quiet 'thank-you, ma'am' to...

    Nolan nodded seriously. "Indeed. I am always attentive for signs of the Saints, Steven." Laura cupped her chin pensively in one paw. "We know of a few leads to look into, there. There's this 'Wandering Light', at least. What about you, Nolan? Have you got any leads?" The Inteleon lightly...

    Nolan made a face, and gesture, that suggested it wouldn't be a simple answer. "Well, occasional members do sometimes discover some mild Radiant ability, although only uncommonly. This is not the same as mastering Radiance, whereupon we believe one could generate it, sustainably enough to pass...

    Nolan clicked his tongue, and nodded slightly. "The light for which my organisation is named, yes. Radiance is the power to defend the world from darkness, good sir. The power of the Saints, and the power of such summoned human heroes as can truly master themselves. It would be an incredible...

    Nolan's mouth pulled back like he was swallowing bile, but he nodded, and suppressed a sigh. "Frontier Town is 'clean', Blaguarro is the only plausible urbanised settlement with any logistical position sufficient for this operation, short of some concealed underground city, or fanciful...

    Laura nodded back quietly – ruefully – at Steven. "I've arrived at a few conclusions," replied Nolan, coolly, "and I'll take it as a compliment that you believe I can divine actionable information from all this in the space of a scant few minutes. On this occasion, at least, perhaps I can." He...

    Nolan nodded, and swallowed uncomfortably. "Well, I, ah... I think— That is to say, one might conjecture, that, ahem..." There was a flash of resentment in his face. A touch of acid disapproval. Then back to coldness. "...Pardon my discomposure," he said, looking away from Steven and Laura...

    Nolan, to his credit, took the question seriously. Although, not without looking somewhat perturbed. "No, my good sir, I have not. I am sorry if that is not the answer you had hoped for, but I suffered no such consequences. A fitful sleep, to be certain, and significant physical injury, but no...

    Nolan nodded darkly. "If I could not perform adequate reconnoissance on the courier, I could at least try to capture the image of his assailant." He glanced to the side, wincing again. "I would not relish repeating that encounter."

    Nolan's expression darkened. He seemed to almost wince. "Unfortunately, that particular courier was waylaid by the so-called 'Wolf'. I was unable to retrieve any useful information, let alone tail him as far as his intended destination. He was travelling from further east, but I never learned...

    Laura nodded, corroborating Steven's account. "The team who went to investigate found some evidence that it may be underground in Blaguarro," she added, "although interference by Shadows caused them to withdraw. We hope... We plan to find some means of fighting Shadows more effectively before...

    "I suppose so," said Nolan, thinly. He made a commanding gesture towards Laura to indicate she should bring out the notebook. She did so, though her hackles went up at being ordered about in such a way. "Do you mind?" asked the Inteleon, and with a look from Laura, he began to examine the...

    "I appreciate the diligence," replied Nolan, "but a fellow in poor health is a poor fellow to ask anything of. Do mind yourself, my good sir." He gestured to invite the pair to sit with him. "My name is Nolan, miss. And you are?" "Laura," replied the Meowth, with a carefully-neutral tone...

    It seemed Greasewood had been expecting the pair, as the Whimsicott appeared with astonishing rapidity at their side to politely show them upstairs. The same space that had been used for the team meeting was now where Steven and Laura would meet Nolan, apparently. "I'll check on y'all from time...

    "Thanks, Dave. That all sounds pretty reasonable... Please would you ask Gerome about it when you get a chance?" Laura took down bullet notes, mentally preparing to go through them later and expand on them based on what Betel remembered of the meeting. She glanced to Bellatrix and Mhynt, and...

    Laura nodded, glancing at Dave. "So, you checked out a cabin that belonged to Brisa Escarpa and Jesse Stranger...? Did you find anything out while you were there?" She consulted her notebook. "And did anyone else have any leads we've not covered so far? I've got Lucien, the Rangers, the...
