    Default Main RP: The Woods


    Banner by K'sariya

    "A vast, mixed wood. The Woods are often frequented by Trainers seeking the forest's populous, easily-trained Bug types that live in the heavy vegetation and leaf litter of its deciduous outer layers. However, as one ventures deeper into the forest's old growth, the low plant life is choked out by the impenetrable, coniferous canopy that is a host to a variety of powerful and fearful creatures. The sunlight only reaches through the forest's center at the small pool that lies in its heart. Ranger Outpost Number Three is located here."

    A soft rain hazes The Woods, slowly but steadily, almost peckish with the way it sprinkles careful, scattered drops. It paves the path for a slight humidity, the kind of weight in the air that's just enough to feel muggy but not enough to deter Babbs and the Trainer from going out into it. And so Babbs takes this necessary evil on this day as she stands outside of the Ranger outpost, the drops pecking selectively at the small, square plastic awning that shelters the door.

    Sweat beads slightly at the old woman's forehead, a testimony to the season. Pale blue eyes squint out into the light haze, waiting for her assigned Trainer to arrive. The comm from the docks said to keep an eye out for a dark-skinned teen with a cropped afro. She pats down her white hair as she thinks about it--she already has wispy strands freeing from her tight bun, frizzing in the humidity. She can't imagine how irritating the dampness must be for the guy's natural hair.

    Regardless, the weather would probably make their entire run a bit of a pain. Rain and the general mugginess would keep most Pokemon hunkered down, so they'd have to give a lot of things a good reason to come out if they wanted to get anywhere. The old Ranger cranes her neck to check the sky. No sign of the end of the blanket of gray yet. At least once they're in, the canopy will protect them from most of the direct drops, but they'll lose all sight of the forecast for the run.

    "Lyra. Lyra, Lyra! Slow down, girl, this isn't a race!"

    Dictator huffed and puffed as they struggled to keep up with their Pokemon. The fleet-footed little Sylveon had darted ahead of them on the path, tail and ribbons waving in the air as she did. Lyra paused at her trainer's voice, twitching her ears and looking over her shoulder at Dictator. They let out a soft squeak of "Sylveon!" before bounding off down the trail again. Dictator sighed heavily, then stared at one of the Pokeballs on their belt. Were they really going to do this?

    Yes. Yes they were.

    "Alright, Chance, come on," Dictator sighed, tossing the ball into the drizzling air. Although Chance was a Charizard, they weren't too worried about anything happening, since it wasn't raining hard. They had been through some rough times with Chance before, and if the rain got too hard, they could always use their jacket to cover the flame on his tail. Once the Charizard was out, he shook his head in disappointment, grunting down at Dictator.

    "Don't sass me," they said rather strongly, tapping him on the nose before climbing onto his back. "Let's go, try to keep up with Lyra, okay?"

    And that was how Dictator approached the old woman waiting for them: riding on the back of their Charizard, with Lyra the Sylveon leading the way.

    Through the haze of the drizzle, she sees a bright flame appear. She squints to make sure she's not imagining things, but sure enough, the shadow of dark wings materializes soon after, confirming her suspicion. A Charizard was an interesting choice in weather like this, where the rain could get heavier without notice. Experience tells her, though, that it at least saves her from a lot of paperwork--it'd be a lot harder for an inexperienced Trainer to do disastrous damage to The Woods with fire if everything was damp. She hopes this one's smarter than that, though.

    A bounding pink form is the first thing to define itself fully, bright colors and rippling ribbons coming to focus. Babbs could recognize that bow-topped form in her sleep. Sylveon had been a popular thing with the kids a little while back, a couple comin' through the Park with 'em all dolled up. This one at least seems free of any human-adorned fluff, at the very least. She spares it a smile as the small creature approaches, and greets it first with a fond ear scratch as soon as the Pokemon approaches her.

    This one matches the description, so she states the obvious as soon as the Trainer reaches them. "Dictator, I assume?" She squints at them, eyes narrowing from within their age-deepened hollows.

    The soft gusts from the deep beats of the Charizard's navy wings feels refreshing on her skin. Gentle drizzle continues to fall. Without waiting for too much of an answer, confident in her assumption, she shuffles toward the solid treeline that lies beyond the outpost. "I figure they told ya' the rules when you signed in. So you've got two choice today from what the scouts tell me--we can skirt around the edges only a couple'a trees deep, which'll let us keep an eye on the weather, and not run into too much that can chew us up. Or we can go deeper 'n' straight in, get some protection from the rain in case it gets worse, but who knows what we'll find. Up to you, kid."

    She was here to keep them from getting themself (and the Park) into too much trouble, but other than that, it was their adventure and their rodeo.
