Chapter 1: Lost Children?
Taz [A tall boy of about 15 with yellow eyes and very long black hair with silver streaks]: [Laying half in bed, half on the floor] Hrrgrm… Mrblemm… [Fall completely out of bed, then pops up again] Whabbaja! [flails his arms randomly] Come at me, bro! [blinks, then shakes his head.] Wow, my dreams are weird. [pulls on a long sleeved red t-shirt with white sleeve extensions, black pants, and a blue sleeveless shirt with the word “Tanuki” on it. He slings a pair of headphones around his neck, and walks downstairs]
Taz’s Mother [a young woman with coppery hair and violet eyes]: Good morning, Taz!
Taz: Morning, Mom.
Taz’s Mother: Well, it’s official. Today, you leave to begin your journey as a pokemon trainer! Honestly, I’m glad they increased the minimum age to 15. But never mind that, Professor Birch is waiting for you, no doubt.
Taz: Yeah… No doub

[A shadowy figure is talking to Nora outside the gates of BattleOn]
Figure: Hey, Nora-Chan. I’m back.
Nora: Oh? How did the mission go?
Figure: Well, it was a huge success, but hardly what I’d have called worth the effort. You should have given it to some of the junior members of the guild; they could have handled it easily.
Nora: Come on, you know it’s good for you to get out of the guild hall every once in a while.
Figure: [chuckling] I suppose that’s true enough. Anyway, what’s new?
Nora: Not sure if you’ve heard, but there’s a new guild in town. A few people fell through a plane gate, and haven’t been able to make their way back. So they started it up.
Figure: And they’ve got the expertise to run a guild?
Nora: Well, one of them was a head priest at a temple, so I have to say yes.
Figure: Interesting. I’m going to have to pay them a visit.
Nora: Just wait until morning this time.

[One day at the Wolf house.]
Nora: Almighty… I'll see you all there. May the best Scurvy dog win. [Hangs up her phone and sticks it in one of the three satchels that are attached to her belt.] Ok then… [She walks out of her room, Drew and Core are going over the current situation.] Ahoy Core!
Nora: All hands on deck! We got an invite from Vane.
Core: Ay, Ay, Captain! [Places one hand over her heart.]
Nora: Round the dogs up.
Core: Ay, Captain!
Drew:[Sitting there confused.]
Nora: Ah, Your guilds coming too you know.
Drew: Um… We’re not pirates, lass…
Nora: I couldn't care less. We got an invite from the good captain of the Bonnet, so were going. And you all are coming with whether you like it or not.
Kent:[Wearing his vest unbuttoned and an off white pirate shirt.] You called Captain?[He bows.]
Nora: We got an invite. Go with core and round up the crew.
Kent: Yes my captain.
Drew: Wait he is older than you isn

[One month later. A cloaked figure approaches the gates of the guild hall.]
Figure: Knock Knock! Anyone home?
Tomnoddi [sitting up in a watchtower]: Hi ho! State your business, please!
Figure: I’ve come to visit an old friend. Or three.
Figure: Quarion and Drew Nailo, and Thomas the Barbarian.
Tomnoddi: You want to talk to the bosses? Alrighty then. I’ll call Thomas down, and if he recognizes you, you can come in. What’s your name?
Figure: I’m Lauchian. [tosses back his hood to braided black hair and lavender eyes that are slightly almond shaped, with slit pupils. His ears are slightly pointed. The overall effect makes him look handsome in a vaguely alien way.] Just give my name, they’ll all come running.
Tomnoddi: Righto! [flips open a comm] There’s a half-elf claiming to be Lauchian. Yes. Yes, lavender. Yeah, he does look a little weird.
Lauchian: [frowns] You know I could blast you off that watch
