Hmm.. Where to start? You have all performed admirably, and for that, I am glad. To tell you all the truth, I was halfway expecting to deal with the Heatran in the tunnels myself! I decided to have faith in those under my employment, though, so I went ahead and waited to see the outcome. You all did not let me down! I will not ask how you accomplished such a task, for things like that do not matter. I am only interested in results, and I was given them.
I am also proud to know that some of you were able to get along quite nicely with your fellow Pokemon, even though they were not affiliated with our Guild! Never be so headstrong in your ideals that you’re unwilling to cooperate with others who do not share them. I shall be informing Michael and PK that their guild members performed exceedingly well during their trials in my escape tunnel. They are most likely aware that this is the case, but it’s important to verbally communicate. That’s something I haven’t really done before. I deemed it unnecessary.
The castle is nice, isn’t it? I used to live there. For a while, anyway. That’s not where I’m originally from, though. I’m sure of it. I would much like to stay there and fraternize, but I’m afraid that such an act would not be met with.. enthusiasm.
The owner of that castle has a fearsome reputation, and while I wouldn’t say it is falsely given, I will say that you are all safe there. This time, anyway.
I almost forgot! Since nearly every Pokemon from Tao Village and the surrounding areas are now with you in the castle, why not try to convince some of them to join our cause? No better time than now, don’t you think? Let’s see.. If you’ve completed say, four missions for me, I think you’ll be more than able to recruit a Pokemon who has already evolved once.
If you’ve completed.. Three missions, I think you’ll have more luck with recruiting a normal stage Pokemon.Two missions, hm, you will be able to adopt a baby from Missy.
She’ll be very appreciative of you taking some of them off of her hands. Probably. It’s not really necessary to tell her what guild we’re from now, is it? If this is your first mission completed with us, I’m sure she’ll have an egg you can look after.
Better than nothing, don’t you think? For those of you who are brand new, and have yet to complete any missions for us, you actually do receive nothing.
That’s just how it goes, I’m afraid! You’ll get more once you put in more for our guild.
Well, enough of that. Let’s get down to business! I’m sure all of you are feeling a bit restless from the lack of official guidance.
It has come to my attention that there is an abundance of work for my friends Chex and Ivory! An overabundance of work, actually. It seems that Sorbet’s romp through Tao has left the Trubbish’s Dump a bit exposed. While this would not normally be a problem, it seems that there are items of interest inside that turn this into a problem. Hopefully you all realize the nature of these items, given Ivory’s current career. This task should not be a hard one, but it is an important one! Assist Chex and Ivory in any way you can. There are too many items for Chex and Ivory to take to the boneyard by themselves, so they will be needing a great deal of help with transporting them.
Ah yes! One other thing. It seems Gunpowder has given Dmitri the task of helping that.. overly friendly Dragonair with something. You’ll have to ask one of them for details.
I believe that I have nothing more to say. There’s this pressing feeling that there’s not much time left, but why? I cannot say. Time isn’t even real, you know! We made it up! Something will happen, though. I’m sure of it. I can’t wait to find out! I haven’t felt this happy since.. a long time ago.
Time! It always comes down to that, one way or the other.
Do you know how it feels to merely exist, searching for a purpose blindly in the dark? It’s not a pleasant experience, I can assure you. All this time I’ve known that something was in that dark, if I could only grab it and follow it to the end. I have grabbed it now, and I will see the path it takes me on soon enough.
I'm sure ye've all noticed, but in case ya were sleepin' the whole time, the village is in.. a bit of a mess. By a bit, of course I be meanin' completely DESTROYED. Ya can thank our lovely merchant head PK for all this.
I heard that Shroomsworth boy left her 'cause of it, or summin'. Har har! That's what she gets, eh? ... Anyway, my point bein', since the village is in a state of disrepair, if ya don't get me letter, well.. I'll understand. Maybe.
... Har. I jest. If ya don't get it, ye better be lookin' for new work.
Oh, right. Speakin' of the village in a mess.. I imagine most of ye be without a place t' stay. Merlot has offered her castle to those in need. I know, I know, ye've all heard rumors 'bout how she's a psycho and a perv, but hear me out. I talked to her, and she seems.. like a psycho and a perv, but a good one, I gotta say! I like her, and you have to like what I say, ya? Har.
... Real talk, though, ya can all stay with her and she don' mind. She probably won't put a maid outfit on ye, either. Unless you're a dragon. Maybe. I left without one, but she seemed t' respect me. She does ask, though, that since there's so many people stayin', that we send SOME help t' the kitchen. I've already forced-- I mean, asked Dmitri to help wit' that, but I'm gonna have t' ask some of you t' help him out. The more, the merrier! We could all use some really good food.
If ya can't cook, I still got some good news for ya. Chex be needin' some help with cleanin' up the village. All the fightin' caused a lot of buildings to be knocked t' pieces, Trubbish dump not excluded. It's makin' the town stink summin' foul; I can smell it from me cave! Be sure to get it nice and clean, ya? If ye find any bodies, well.. I'm sure Chex'll handle 'em too. Yar har har! I'm so funny, ain't I?!
But seriously. I ain't heard of anyone dead yet from this whole mess, but do keep yer eyes open. If ya find anyone, do let either Devonshire or I know and we'll see to it that the family be notified. Or whatever. Look, I just do as I'm told, see? Anyway.
I can understand if the smell of rotting flesh makes ya want to gag, and if it does, yer a big baby, I say, but we've also got one last thing fer ya t' do. An old associate of mine by the name of Anana dropped by with a letter; summin' about travelling. Might be a good experience fer some o' ya. I've attached a copy of it. Despite her bein' the sister o' that nasty witch PK, we can trust her, since I say so, and ya can trust me. Right?
And don't bother tellin' me if yer gone. I got bigger things t' worry about.
That about covers it, methinks! Keep it real, mateys. Keep it real.
What my boy Dmitri is sayin’ is that there ain’t enough food for all of us in this place, and we’ve been tasked with the most honorable task of findin’ enough for that little fellow who I have been told, with no uncertainty, isn’ a snake. Dunno how a fellow like him cooks, with lack of limbs n’ everythin’. There should be a load of vegetables in Tao Ranch, but we gotta get ‘em quick, as there’s sure to be scavengers n’ other unfortunate folk who’d be tryin to get ‘em as well.
Anythin’ else, Dmitri?
I know that very few of you know me, but I’ve got a job that pays well if you’d like to take a break from being poor and homeless out in your little village! As it turns out, one of my star performers at the King’s Rock Casino has fallen ill. I’ve taken great pains to ensure her well being, but that has, unfortunately, left her partner one short. Maybe you’ve been out here and seen it, maybe not. In any case, perhaps one of you has enough talent to replace her for a few shows! After all, how can we draw in a crowd with one of the two main stars unwell?
Oh, the girl who’s sick? Her name’s Dee. That’s not so important, though! As long as you have some pep in your step, you’re good to go. Please try to be attractive for the crowd. Hugh, her partner, will fill you in on the details. He’s a Kadabra with a knack for magic tricks like no other. Don’t think it’s just normal psychic powers, no! It’s not, no, it’s really not. Psychic powers simply do not work in our casino, making his feats incredible. Don’t ask how, we won’t tell~!
Ah, right. Let me just mention that it wouldn’t be wise to gamble away your earnings at the casino. You don’t want to owe! You’d probably never return to Tao. Just a friendly warning!
