SECRET MISSION — INFILTRATE LEAGUE HEADQUARTERS



[attr="class","aname2"]
READ CAREFULLY



[attr="class","ipad"]
[attr="class","ihead"]GENERAL GUIDELINES
[break][break]

ROCKETS ASSEMBLE! the estranged remains of whatever attacked mossdeep now resides in the league headquarters of lilycove. our secret existence is now paying off. while the league is busy tending to slateport and have their guard down, we'll infiltrate their base and nab the specimen for ourselves. from the reports of that pokemon's power, we'll be able to cash in its remains for big bucks, once we're done analyzing it for our own uses that is. [break][break][break]





[attr="class","ihead"]ROCKET HEIST MECHANICS
[break][break]

the objective of this event is to work together to infiltrate league headquarters and leave with their prize while remaining undetected. this event will shift away from an individual performance format and focus on the cooperation of team rocket as a team. players are allowed to narrate how events unfold to create a collaborative story.[break][break][break]

[break][break]

the heist will borrow mechanics from the popular forum game: three word story. each player takes a turn adding to a large overarching story with only a few words. the objective is to create a fluid and dynamic story without having too much reliance on any one player.[break][break][break]


there are general rules one must follow:
[break][break]
  • members of the new TEAM ROCKET are free to participate.
  • [break]
  • post should not exceed 100 words!
  • [break]
  • you may post after two other member have posted since your last post!
  • [break]
  • build off the last sentence of the previous post. if they were mid-sentence, complete the sentence!

[break][break][break]



[attr="class","ihead"]EXAMPLE
[break][break]

[break][break]


the longer the night goes on the less occupied league headquarters becomes. zacharias watches the front of the building with a pair of binoculars, waiting for the command. team rocket has finally assembled and they're ready to take the world by storm. when the coast is clear, he gives the sign. he brings out his electrode and the pokemon rolls down the street, innocent until provoked. once it gets to a far enough distance, it explodes, damaging the street and causing chaos in the street. several league members come out to investigate and that's when —

[break][break][break]

[break][break]


— desmond makes his move. slick and discreet, he manages to sneak around the entrance to league headquarters without being noticed. he taps the ear piece on his head and whispers into it. "all clear in the bunker. over." without any league members stationed out front, he can easily pass through the lobby and toward the one of the store rooms on the first floor. he crosses paths with paths with another rocket and gives them a curt nod, pretending to shake their hand as a greet while slipping them a key. now that —

[break][break][break]


[break][break]


— dominic has the key he should have no problem getting into the security room. he continues to walk through league headquarters at a leisurely pace until he reaches the same room outlined in the building's blueprints. as expected, the key fits into the door hole and he wriggles with the door knob, opening the door after a few jiggles. the first thing dominic goes for is the security cameras, turning them all off. now that they have no way of recording what happens, the rest of rocket can swarm the building, so long as they do it secretly. the last —

[break][break][break]


[attr="class","ihead"]REWARDS
[break][break]

[break][break]

rewards will depend on two factors. there will be a completion reward that applies to all participants equally based off whether or not team rocket accomplishes their mission within the thread. the other reward will be based off performance, primarily based off the amount of times a member posts within the thread and therefore contributing to the event.

— they want is to be discovered. There are still League members in the building and Kingsley would prefer to avoid conflict for as long as possible. Alerting one League member will guarantee more arrive. He keeps Banette and Greninja in the shadows, knowing they'll be quick to dispatch anyone who poses a threat.

Still, Kingsley walks through the building with ease; following behind him is —

goro wasn’t alone. betty white remained nearby in her ghoulish plane, saint vincent was camouflaged around his neck, and freddie stuck to the shadows. they were all prepared for —

— moving ahead is prime. With the room distracted, Kingsley moves ahead, slipping past the gathering of people like a misplaced breeze. He does not check to see if Shimizu is following him.

From his pocket, he pulls out his own blueprint and gives it another glance over. The room is on the top floor.

Down the hallway, Kingsley continues on but he is stopped by —

— an ominous cackle. betty white, the haunter, appears from nothingness to spook the other rocket. goro clicked his tongue, and she returns to nothingness, her evil laughter still ringing in his ears.

“i think she likes you.” goro commented as he walked pass the group and towards the stairs. he opened the door and his own frogadier leapt from a nearby shadow and started spidermanning up the many flights of stairs. goro glanced at the others, door held open by his foot. he barely noticed —

the blueprints leads them to an encounter with an actual scientist from the project. he eyes down as if trying to identify him. the scientist finally speaks up to ask him who he was, as he does not recognize him from the project they were working on. priam starts with a confused "ah, you see..." and his statement is recovered with a statement from --

— Kingsley who steps forward, smile bright and disarming. He makes up a quick lie that flows as natural as he breathes. The scientist lingers and then he gives a shrug before moving on.

Kingsley's smile relaxes. "If your Pokemon fucks up like that again," he hums, following Cadis, "I'm going to put it down, Shimizu."

The group carries on and things seem to be going well until -

-- they were met face-to-face with a head researcher. cadis would come to explain that those behind him, and the one holding the door, are promised talent here to study the future of tomorrow. the head, skeptical at first, wished them well. encouraging the group to reach for the stairs.

the man merrily strolled by. now they just needed to find their way into the basement. how were they going to do that? with the swiped card. they just needed to needed to find the doorway with @kingsley blue prints. but before that --

— goro snorted. “can’t kill a ghost, arrow.” he teased, before allowing the door to shut as the last of their party squeezed into the stairway. rockets were either mad or sad, he mused, and kingsley seemed to fall in the latter.

freddie came bouncing down the stairs and landed squarely in front of goro, interrupting his thoughts. “anyone up there?” goro asked. the frog pokémon shook his head. relieved goro began, “see nothing to worr-“ before his frogadier shot its tongue out at —

[attr="class","spiral"] -- Rhys who reacted by grabbing the Pokemon's tongue. "If you can't control your own Pokemon, why are you here?" He stared straight at Goro with dead eyes. Rhys had been quiet up until now, however, Goro and his actions were beginning to annoy him. He let go of the tongue.

Goro was lucky enough that they were on a mission currently, and any physical altercation would bring about the wrong type of attention and disrupt what they were here to do. Though, the frog did confirm that where they were heading was currently vacant. "Let's keep going." He said silently to the group. With the stairs now free to climb it was clear they had to --

-- take caution.

the blueprint indicated a large room beyond the door. priam doesn't know what to assume was behind it, but he can try and guess that there would be people who were unaware of what was outside, busy with their work. an electronic lock was placed to keep the unauthorized personnel away, but with their key card, it shouldn't be a problem.

"so, what's gonna happen next?" priam asks as he starts to wear a lab coat he nabbed earlier on his way to meet them from his first act. glasses too, cause he wants to look the part.

Kingsley's mouth is dry with hunger for a cigarette. He fits a thumb into the pocket of his slacks and inclines his head towards Cadis.

"All yours, sir," he says, offering a lazy smile.

Behind the door is the rumble of people and something else.

keycard in hand. he would come to slash it vertically through the card reader. suddenly, the card failed as they were given, "unauthorized."

turning to face the group, a casual smile donned, "unlucky, we've a new 'temporary' objective: find the master key." to whom could have it? that remained to be discovered. but somewhere on this floor there resided a master key in the hands of one of mossdeep's researchers. "track down that researcher we passed earlier. maybe he has one, try to swap this key out..." he'd hand them the failed key, "...with the one in his possession."
