Hello to those who are reading! My name’s Andy and I have written this in hopes of finding some good, honest, and true law-abiding pokemon who’re willing to help in Gambitville. Gambitville is a wonderful desert town, a wonderful home for pokemon of all ages and creeds, young and small, old and tall!… Or at least it would be if all the dang no-good criminals were wrung out and hung to dry. You see, Jury, our kind and dutiful mayor, has been out of commission for a good while, and during that time it seems that every villain, crook, and two-bit thief just waltzed along into our quaint little desert town. Now that Jury’s awake again he is quite literally FUMING!
…and that’s where you step in!
I have heard that there are those of you out there who belong to different groups, like “mercenaries”, “shopkeeps”, “helpers” or some other such nonsense; I have been told by our wonderful mayor to allow anyone to join! If you’re not a criminal and your records as clean as fresh pressed silk, then come on down and help us all out!
Actually, let me say that again. It is absolutely without a doubt entirely essential that you are not and have NEVER been a criminal and that you, of course, have the best intentions at heart when coming to help out over at our dear sweet Gambitville. Of course, to cement the fact that you are as pure and well-scented as newly printed newspaper, once you arrive to our town, you must go over to the courthouse and see Jury himself!Jury will then handle a brief interview with you on your credentials and intentions and decide whether or not you are well-suited for our tasks.
If you are eligible, then congratulations and thank you for coming so far along on this journey! If you are not eligible, I do humbly suggest that you hastily and quietly back your bags… Lest you’re willing to become the first example for our scum-ridden town.
Anyway, once you’ve passed that necessary interview
, there are a few tasks that I have planned where, as previously mentioned, anyone can join! TASKS WILL NOT BE REWARDED WITHOUT SEEING JURY AND PASSING HIS INTERVIEW.
We do not reward criminals.
First of all, Jury has requested help from any carpenters out there. See, what with all the crime and trouble running rampant here, Jury is in dire need of examples to showcase to town. However, without any gallows that sure is a difficult feat! Can you tell where this is going? That’s right! Your duty is to go ahead and find some good quality wood that won’t break at the first sign of dead weight and then construct some nice gallows for the town. Keep in mind of course, that since you are meant to follow laws during your stay here, the wood you obtain must be gained through legal means. If you have gotten this far, you should already have known this though, so let’s continue! Once you find this lumber, you’ll need to construct three sets of gallows in varying heights. If you need help with this part, I’ll be glad to help out any one of you! I’ve done this loads of times before, and while it may seem intimidating to build gallows at first, they’re honestly as easy as learning to tie shoes!... Not that any of us really wear shoes. Anyway, the one thing I must reiterate is that these gallows must be of great quality! If these gallows don’t turn about right, how will criminals be punished correctly? Please be sure to make them as sturdy and firm as Jury is in upholding the law! Constructing 3 sets of gallows is worth 1 point.
The next task definitely demonstrates our mayor’s vast kindness! As mentioned earlier, Jury has been sleeping out away for a bit, and no doubt during this time a great deal of heart wrenching crimes occurred. Now with Jury’s rightful return, he’s offering a clean start and pardon for all lawbreakers! Despite swift and dutiful punishment being dealt from under his watchful gaze, mercy is also one of his great gifts to all. Jury knows there’s a good deal of work ahead for him and this town and while he is the head prosecutor, judge, and mayor all in one, he has decided anyone, ex-criminal or not, is welcome to come on down to Gambitville for a brand new nonviolent and law-abiding start! Your job is to go around and post flyers all about your town helping to entice any no-good scum to live a life of peace and quiet! If anyone tires of their dirty ways and dastardly deeds, make sure to convince them to skip on over to Gambitville so they can wipe their slate as clean as limber! Posting flyers and convincing criminals of starting over is worth 1 point.
This task requires some strong pokemon to help us. The thing is, before Jury came around these parts, Gambitville once had the highest crime rate of any town around! The wide open spaces of sand and the general lack of security in these parts caused every scheming villain from here to there to settle down in poor little Gambitville. With that in mind, Jury is setting out to construct a grand sandstone brick wall to surround and protect his town… and when I said that Jury is constructing a wall I meant that you and I are all setting about to build the materials needed! Here in the desert, raw sandstone is all around, lying about as far as the eye can see. There’s no shortage here, so let’s all work together to make these raw stones into bricks and set about assembling that cozy town wall. Remember, Jury is only asking us to make the bricks of the wall, not build the whole thing, so don’t worry any of your little heads over that aspect of its construction. Once you start to make some, do your best to stack all the bricks behind the courthouse in an orderly fashion and be sure to make a lot of them! I will restate myself to imply absolute importance to my words: Make a lot of bricks. As many as you can and then more. If the amount of bricks Jury needed were not so immense, then I could have done the work all on my own, you know! Bringing about a large pile of bricks is worth 1 point.
The next task is a bit more dangerous than the last ones mentioned so please make sure to only come along if you think you won’t be a hindrance to the well being of this group! During Jury’s absence, gangs and vigilante groups have sprung up all throughout town and while Jury is appreciative of the thought behind the vigilantes, they are as much against the law as the gangs are. Those who take up this task will come along with me and visit every building in Gambitville to announce that Jury is the one and only law here as he is the rightful mayor! Any other authority must not be recognized as being lawful or in power. Due to there being low and bottom-of-the-barrel scum who think themselves a greater position than Jury himself, there is an incredibly high chance that we will meet up with some resistance… However, keep in mind that violence is unlawful unless you are attacked first. While interacting with these residents of Gambitville, do your best to abide by the law. By do your best I mean you must absolutely work entirely under the laws and regulations. While we go around to each and every home, I will be keeping track of those who are unhappy with Jury’s place as head of law. Please make sure to keep aware while I am taking note of individuals and their responses as it would be unfortunate if I were harmed and no longer able to help Jury with whatever he asks of me. Aiding me in this is worth 1 point.
The fourth task I am writing about here today involves parties!... Stopping parties. While Jury is glad to know residents of Gambitville are happy and well enough to enjoy themselves, parties going way down too far into the night seem very apt to getting quickly out of hand! A curfew has been enacted and, under Jury’s commands, I have made sure to post flyers explaining this to the public. Unfortunately, there may be some folk who don’t take these matters seriously. Your job is to head into all the saloons in town and make sure that every one of them is empty… and if any of them aren’t empty your job is to get everyone to leave the building. Owners of said establishments can of course stay, but as stated by the new curfew, no sort of partying is allowed so late after hours. Make sure that everyone you may have kicked out gets home safe and sound. If a drunken brawl breaks loose, which hopefully doesn’t happen seeing how drunken brawls are prohibited, you will have to make sure to stop it as quickly as you can while avoiding violence. Helpers who turn out to be excessively violent will not be rewarded. Commit this task as peacefully as you can for one point!
Our last task is quite urgent and requires brave individuals who are willing to get down and dirty in order to possibly save a life! Huckleberry, one of our mayor’s marshals, says that he saw a young Sandshrew named Timmy fall down the well in the middle of Gambitville. There are a system of caves under this town that can be used to find little Timmy, and while Huckleberry is very worried for the poor boy he has no way of traveling into these caves. It’s up to you to find a way down there and rescue Timmy!
…Or not. At the bottom of the well is a system of underwater caves, so Timmy may have already drowned. Hopefully this is not the case, but either way please bring Timmy back, be it safe and thankful to be alive or dead and waterlogged. Worth one point either way, and you can perhaps find something interesting in the well while you're at it.
If you have read this far and are interested, then Jury and I send our thanks and we hope that a good deal of you find your way up to Gambitville so you can help us change it from a great town to the GREATEST town!
: Now that Gambitville finally has a working law system, it isn't too surprising that when convicts are thrown into prison, they leave their loved ones behind. Sometimes this means unhatched eggs are left without a family. Why not adopt them? Chances are you'll be a much better parent to these kids than those criminals would ever be. Make the eggs a part of your family for only five
Right now only Dark, Fire, and Steel
type eggs are up for adoption.Recruitment
: Thanks to Jury's new "Put Convicts Back to Work" program, you are allowed to recruit any petty criminal from Gambitville's prison of a basic stage for only ten
points. The cost may sound steep, but you're giving these Pokemon another shot at a good, honest life!
And if you think you’re tough enough to handle them, you may recruit a second-stage criminal from Gambitville’s prison for twelve
The prison just opened up, so there aren't many convicts to choose from... looks like there are only Dark, Fire, and Steel
types serving time right now.Evolution Scroll
: You may receive one of these from your guild leader if you have ten
points to trade in.Artifacts (Timmy’s Rescue) Truthful Mirror
: No reflection can be seen from this mirror, and looking into it instills a sense of despondency and regret. Uses Quash
on anyone unfortunate enough to gaze upon it. Achilles’ Heal
: Said to have belonged to a great warrior at one point, this Breloom foot will protect against the “lethal” component of one normally fatal attack, then turn to dust. (Invokes Endure
once). Carin’ Coin
: If this golden coin is slipped to a stranger, it will tie their fate to yours (Invokes Destiny Bond
). Well Water
: Contains the power of Amnesia
. A vial of cloudy water. Shortly after drinking, the imbiber forgets both their most and least fondest memory forever. Consecrated Tablet
: Cleanses the area of impure spirits. Invokes Fire Spin
on all pokemon within a small radius, including the user. Koiking Effigy
: This worn and cracked Magikarp stone inflicts feelings of rage when gazed upon. Any pokemon staring at it too long uses Outrage
on everything in the vicinity without regard for safety, destroying the stone in the process.
