• 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?

    During the Terminal Two mission, the Rangers and Escarpa warriors – with Felin – engaged Cipher forces above ground led by Commander Exol, an Exploud. The peons and Shadow pokémon were defeated handily, along with the Shadow onix. Nidoran Purple, the 'mascot' of the Ranger Union, demonstrated...

    "Your determination and tactical thought do you credit. Battle is an art – it is not enough to have passion, or strength. You must practice, innovate, think. Townies do not understand this. You understand, do you not?" "A cloaked 'mon we didn't recognise did stop by, but not for long. We...

    "If someone who'd attract very much unwanted attention came by this town, they might find a place to stay in the old Desert Knot community, who know well how to give rest and help to a tired traveller..." Tlalli seems willing to imply that she or some other native community leader may be...

    "Don't think on it too hard, lass. The moment'll come, and you'll be glad of it when it does." Koa detects an odd scent signature in the Old Town. Perhaps Luz came by there on her way to the Wanderin' Zera. "It's not the right day, yet. ...I will confess something to you, stranger. I wanted...

    Aurelia is, as usual, posted to the front gate, and steps forward to answer Steven. "Hold, Beld— Metang Steven! I remember your voice; kudos for your evolution! What brings you to Fort Sunward? Will you come inside and speak with me face to face?" ~~~ "It is odd for an outsider to train with...

    "Powehi keeps the worst of it at bay, makes sure I won't Shadow permanently. Means there's always a minimum amount, though – never rid of it. Helps to think of my vees. Helps to focus on physical reality, without feeling anything about it. Helps to... feel pain, sometimes." ~~~ "Spar? What...

    Bingo. The 'Wanderin' Zera' was so-named because an itinerant Zeraora stopped by a long time ago for a quiet drink. It seems she's returned for another quiet drink.

    Lucien has in fact honoured his commitment to postponing all rail travel between Frontier Town and Blaguarro. "It can't be indefinite, I'm afraid, but it should cover the duration of your mission, and of course I have arranged for you to be taken there by rail when the time comes. I wish you...

    The Wayfarers and their allies have had the month of Charge to prepare for an assault on Terminal Two, Cipher's base of operations beneath the town of Blaguarro. Not much is known about the layout of the facility, but we can expect it to contain prisoners and test subjects for their Shadow...

    Morgrem Sophie, Morris and Vic, along with about fifty Impidimp lackeys, are being held by the sheriff of Lucky Rock, one Talonflame Palmer. Palmer has already issued bounty scrips to the Wayfarer squads who took them in, cashable at most banks, but is willing to let Wayfarers grill the outlaws...

    Drungfield tends to Gladion's ankle with her usual, efficiently terse bedside manner. She softens a little as he asks about gender. "You spotted my horns are spear rather than distaff, I take it?" The way the Doc tells it, gender – and biological sex – are hardly a concern for most Forlasan...

    The town coroner, Leavanny Perry, takes the body with professional calm, and issues a handwritten receipt for it. The body's identity is not his responsibility, but he thanks Nova for doing the right thing all the same. He'll declare a cause of death shortly. It's hard to tell just how sincere...

    Drungfield is considerably reluctant to teach anyone to use a firearm for self-defense, but the matter of Shadow 'mon puts her on the fence about it.

    Laura is fairly quiet on the journey back from Bedaurejo Castle, but willing to talk to the party about what they learned. Her perspective is that the Coven probably consists of a mix of bad actors and idealists, and the party may find that physically fighting some members and providing an...

    She takes well to the work, already being accustomed to reading the room in a saloon, and she can send just about any rough customer on their way. She's hypervigilant for a while, ill-at-ease without a looming threat, but she's good at the job. She learns some things. The Tsainanese residents...

    The arrest of Ignatius Voclain is still fresh news for most, and will take time to settle. Many have questions about the offworlders' true motives, or whether the next mayor to take office will truly be better for the town, or whether Voclain was framed. The party still needs to prove itself to...

    One of the visitors was, apparently, a rail tycoon and their entourage. Doesn't sound like anything special, though – just a captain of industry with typically avaricious business practices. The railway system exists in a precarious case of state capitalism – it appears that the actual network...
