• 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?

[Tier II] Bastion City Gym

~Bastion City Gym~

…Wait, this can’t be right.

You hold up your map, staring at it. You’re sure you followed the right path to get to this “Bastion City” that’s marked right there… but all that’s in front of you is a large crevice in an incredibly tall cliff, seeming to lead into a cave. You shrug, figuring maybe the town is in the cave, and you enter.

After a few minutes of walking, you start hearing a rushing, roaring sound. Like fast-moving water. The interior floor of the cave looks smoothed out now, and every so often you note crystals glowing in an eerie cyan color lighting the way. Eventually, you round a corner and see an exit, which leads into an absolutely beautiful water-filled town under the earth.

This is what your eyes fall upon.

Bastion City lies near completely under the ground, with the exception to that being a giant crack in the earth overhead that faces to the west, out toward the sea. The entrance is bordered by a waterfall, which splits off just over the entrance to the city. It is absolutely covered in glowing aquamarine crystals, to the point where even the buildings are made out of them.

Bastion City is said to be the region’s leading exporter in Evolutionary Stones, especially Water Stones and Dawn Stones. Every so often you can find one stuck in the dirt with the other glowing crystals. It is said that the Gym Leader occasionally gives out Fire Stones rather than TMs alongside her badge.

In the center of the huge entrance cave, on a tall island in the middle of the water with earthen bridges leading to it, is the crystalline building that is the gym. Inside is a lone set of stairs, that leads down further into the earth, until it reaches a massive maze of fire and ice. If you can figure out the puzzle, a large, locked door in the center of the room opens up, revealing the leader herself inside, sitting on a throne with violet cushions. She has red hair, a violet vest with pink undershirt, blue jeans and glasses, and she always gives her challengers a smile.

“Such a pleasure to see a challenger who could get around the traps. I hope you are up to the challenge…!”
