Students across campus had been going on about the halloween event for months, something about a huge dance, a weird atmosphere- frankly Derby wasn't about all that, sure dancers were cute and stuff, but what she really adored was a challenge, a new test, something she could trial her inventions out on even! So when she'd heard about the mysterious 'maze' she saw it as the perfect opportunity for herself- however the down side to all this truly was that... she had to dress up.
Ask anybody, and they'd tell you that Derby didn't give two clanks about what she looked like, slacks and tank tops her everyday outfit, so when faced with the dilemma of needing to wear a mask and some fancy outfit? She had turned to the only kid she knew would have her best interests in heart- her lil bro Skye. And just her luck, the kid had been all about helping her!
Compared to the other people here, Derby wasn't dressed up, not really- she hadn't... exactly gotten the memo that everything had to be pokemon themed, and even then she probably would have still came in the outfit that Skye'd spent a few hours brainstorming- a simple grey suit with buttons and knobs glued and nailed on, her toolbelt even hung around her waist- it added to the style but also... toolkits gave Derby a tonne of security, who knows when she was gonna need a wrench?!
She also had on some robot looking mask, with buttons and even a small glowing contraption around the rim to give it a 'spooky cool look'. Skye had adored it, and had even made a pipe cleaner finishing touch for her hair- an antennae that she'd stuck half-heartedly in her bun. Skye had called her a robot princess, and Derby agreed- except for the princess bit, really.
Derby had easily found her way to the maze entrance and fished out Bender, her three-legged Fennekin, who was more than excited to take on the tasks with her! She knew this could be a great opportunity too to test how Bender's mechanical leg could handle additional stress when facing a new environment the mon had never been in- it was perfect. "You see that there, Bendz?" Her voice broke the silence between her and her pokemon, who let out a soft, "Fennnne?" in response, his head moving to followed where she was looking- the entrance to the maze, "We're going to ace that, it's like a super maze thing, I think- lots of rooms to explore- and there's probably gonna be treats- you love them, dontcha?" her Fennekin let out an excited noise, moving to jump in the air as he did so, however there was the sound of metal dropping- one of Bender's screws had fallen out.
"Arg- Damn it, hold still bud." Just her luck. Derby had moved herself quickly to the floor and searched around for the screw, holding Fennekin steady and grabbing one of her little screwdrivers from her belt, fixing his leg right by the entrance of the maze.
"I am not wearing this." Tau claimed, horrified as he looked in the mirror. "Nonsense, my little lion, I learned how to sew to make this costume for you." his mother responded sternly, looking proud at her creations. "Mom, no, I didn't even ask for this. I-" He began to protest, but was cut short. "You're going to the maze, Tau. It'll be good for you."
"I'm an adult, not some kid who needs encouraging."
"Say that to your racecar themed bed, dear."
"This has nothing to do with that, and you know it."
"Getting defensive isn't helping your case."
Tau looked in the mirror again. His usual loose clothing was gone. In its place was an uncomfortably almost skin tight, one piece black suit with white bone details. The tall, stick thin man was dressed as a skeleton. And it worked out perfectly, thanks to his lanky nature. "Don't forget the mask." His mom reminded him, and not waiting for an answer, forced it on his head. "Augh, sh- shoot ma. Really?" Tau almost swore, looking at the skull shaped, home made mask.
Satisfied with her work, Tau's mom gave him a small black bag and got Emem out of his pokeball, and rushed them outside. She tossed him a black jacket as she wished him well, and then closed the door to their home.
Emem looked confused, but was happy to be with Tau. When the skeleton-clad mechanic looked over at his pokemon, he didn't expect them to be painted like a skeleton horse. Tau spoke wit a laugh, "Well, at least I'm not the only one who couldn't escape her grasp. Let's get this over with, Em."
Getting to the event wasn't difficult, aside from the crowd. The two made it to the entrance of the maze fairly easily, even with people stopping him and asking for pictures. He stood off to the side, watching the crowd. Emem was close at his side.
Neither of them wanted to go in. So they were looking around for a distraction. Tau caught sight of someone dressed as... a fancy robot mechanic? Wait, a mechanic?? He took a step forward, wanting to start a conversation, but couldn't bring himself to say hi dressed like this.
The muscular figure kneeled down, seemingly looking for something. It must be for the three legged fox. Deciding that offering help was better then ignoring them, Tau and Emem walked over. On his way over, he felt something dig into the bottom of his shoe. It must be what mechanic and the fox need, as there's no other good reason for a screw to be around here. "Uh, excuse me. Is this yours?" He asked, holding out the screw to the costume clad mechanic.
Her attempts to fix Fennekin's leg without a screw had been for naught- why on all days and times did it have to flake out on her now! The inner mechanisms of the leg were supposed to hold at least until her check next week! A grumble left Derby's lips as she moved to put the screwdriver down, glancing around once more in the floor around her, surely it hadn't gone far? If she couldn't find it it was probably she'd have to carry Bender the whole way, and she had no idea if she'd be able to handle doing that the whole time if there was any agility involved in the maze...
As she was fumbling for the screwdriver a masculine voice broke from her slightly annoyed grumbling, and she glanced around- until her gaze settled on a literal skeleton standing above her. Her eyebrows rose slightly, more-so in surprise than anything else, glancing at what was being offered before back at the person- a dude? Yeah, she was pretty sure it was a dude. "Oh yeah- thanks mate." left her lips, as she offered the skeleton a twitch of her lips in return for the piece of metal.
Lucky for her the bloke had stumbled upon it- but- wait. Derby paused, glancing back at the boy- wasn't... this supposed to be a formal event? You're telling her that like, she could have come not in a suit? "Uhh... nice bones you got there." she managed out, realizing her scrutinisation should probably be met with some sort of explanation, before she turned back around and grabbed her screwdriver, quiet for a few moments as she worked on adjusting and tightening the nuts in Bender's prosthetic.
"His leg's a little janky, probably why the screw came loose, classmates have been telling me to use like proper prosthetic stuff but nothing can compare to the art of metalworking." Her voice carried through as she spoke, feeling the boys presence still behind her and feeling what she was doing probably needed some form of explanation. A few more beats and she was standing up, instructing Bender to bend his leg and test out the bounce and flexability on it before nodding to herself and turning around to face the dude.
D-mnit this was embarrassing. He'd be more comfortable wearing a literal trash bag then this outfit. But he couldn't bring himself to say that out loud, as his mom did work hard on this horrible costume. "I, uh, yeah... Thanks.. It's, uh, home made." He said, sounding embarrassed and defeated. "Your costume's much nicer, I had to leave my tool kit at home."
Of all times he meets someone who could also be interested in mechanical work, he meets them dressed as a skeleton. This is almost as bad as a Halloween a few years ago where he had to repair a truck wearing a ballerina costume -- tutu and all.
Hearing her explanation of the leg had him kneeling next to her to get a better look, "I'm better with cars then prosthetics, but anyone telling you to buy a premade one is a dumb-ss."
He was pretty neutral on a lot of things, but mechanical work was definitely not one of them. The ability to handcraft something so detailed is amazing, and he'd start fights over people saying otherwise. Well.. maybe not fights. But he'd talk big. It's like saying 'Don't build your own car, just buy a new one.' Like it's okay to just take out all the fun of something. It's like telling a trainer 'Don't train your pokemon, just buy a stronger one.'
He welcomed her changing the topic, as he was already tired with himself over the costume and feeling so strongly on the topic. "Uh, yeah, I guess. But Emem here doesn't want me to go in alone." He said, using Emem as an excuse.
The Blitzle painted as a skeleton horse neighed quietly, but didn't want to put up too much of a fight. His trainer was right, to some degree, after all. He didn't want to be in the maze at all, with or without another human around.
A home made costume? The corner of Derby's lip flicked up and she tilted her head, "No shit?" there was almost a joking tone to her voice, and her hand shifted to rest on her hip, for a hand-made costume it wasn't bad at all, and definitely was a welcome change from all the poke-humans running 'round. "Mines handmade too- my little bro came up with the idea, but I guess.. handmades a mighty bit of a stretch though, technically just bought a suit and jazzed it up a little- and bringing my kits a plus." She moved to idly finger the belt, a grin on her features now.
The dude mentioned having a kit too, did that mean he worked in a similar industry? He could have been an electrician for all she knew, though- not that that's a bad thing, but like, she didn't wanna assume too much, y'know?
As he spoke again her thoughts were practically confirmed, cars. "Cars? Do you like, build em? Race em? Pit-stop work, maybe?" There was a hum to her tone as her fingers found their place back on her hip, thinking, "But yeah, well, my class all wanna work on human prosthetics or in like muscle rebuildin', so I can't blame em- but it's important to keep the tradition of working with just pure, unsultured metal goin, right? Especially building em from scratch."
Her pops would have been proud of her, metalwork was his passion, and out of all the people he knew in the buisness she was the only second generation going into it, just seeing him happy at her voice of career was something she'd love to keep up, and her kid- er- brother, Skye seemed keen for learning more too- tradition, especially in the hand-me-down skills was incredibly important.
As the bloke mentioned his pokemon not wanting him to go in alone Derby paused to glance at the zebra mon, letting out a loud laugh upon noticing the pokemons paint, "Emem was it?" The girl smiled at the mon, glancing back up at Tau after a few moments, "Well then, count me in- though I hope you don't mind if we pause to run a few tests? For my Bender here's leg I mean- I gotta see how it holds up for one of the main parts of my final thesis, analysis and all that scha-bang.."
"No sh-t." Tau confirmed, thankful she seemed easy to talk to. Upon hearing about her costume being homemade, he couldn't help but to naturally reply, "No sh-t? It looks pretty sweet." While Tau wasn't envious in the slightest of the fact she had a little brother, he was impressed at her costume.
While his mom constantly teased him about his lack of an eye for fashion or detail outside of the car world, he tried to think of a compliment to show he did, in fact, see detail in clothes. "I like the effort put into it." He said, not happy with what he could come up with in time.
No sh-t, she asked about cars. Tau's mind raced with possible topics to talk about, but he decided to try and stay chill. "Build 'em and repair 'em. If it's got wheels, I work on it." He said proudly, barely containing his excitement to meet someone else who knew at least something relating to his passion in life.
When she started talking again, he paid closer attention to what she said. She was no longer just a passing voice with a toolbox, no. He was interested in her. And her toolbox. "Nothing beats the feelin' of new metal." He agreed, nodding a bit, "Have any goals for your metalworking?" It was unusual for him to be so interested in someone, even though most would consider this a pretty basic conversation.
He didn't mean to invite her along, but this was the opposite of a problem. "We can take as long as you need. I'm curious about your work, uhh.." Oh crap, did he forget her name? Not now, the conversation was getting good. Quick! Come up with a nickanme! ... It's no use, the only nickname he could come up with is 'Screwsuit' and there's no way in hell he's calling her that. "I'm sorry, what's your name?" This is it. This is how people lose interest in him. Got so caught up in her interests he doesn't even know if she introduced herself or not.
Aw, admiring the effort? That was sweet comin' from a skeleton. Derby moved to adjust her belt as she responded, looking the slightest bit more upbeat than she was before. "Skye'd be tickled pink to hear that- he's all handy with craft stuff." Oh, she should probably clarify, just so the dude didn't think she was talking about the actual sky, she'd had it happen a few times before, a few jokes made here and there but she still ought to quickly correct herself.. "My bro- Skye."
There was a shift in the males tone that she noticed, he seemed more enthused, especially about the topic at hand- he built and repaired cars? Shit, that's gotta be mighty technical and stuff. Derby quirked an eyebrow up, "You build... and repair em- that's some talent you've got, dude- though is it just limited to cars?" A slight headtilt, "Cuz my dad's got a mighty cool wheelchair, but I reckon some of the motorized bits are faulty, you in that sorta business?" She'd been meaning to look for a while, but her final papers had gotten her head in a big spin and she didn't have much time to look- maybe it's lucky she ran right into a mechanic here?
She assumed by the way the bloke talked he was around her age, probably a little younger judging by his skinny form? She couldn't be sure though- it wasn't that often other people outside her class seemed interested in workin' with metal, especially in a world filled with exciting adventures and pokemon galore. "Ah, mm gonna change the world." Her answer for her goal was simple, and met with a shrug as if what she said wasn't that big of a deal.
"You know how many mons and people have been left disadvantaged cuzza the beast attacks? I visit all these homes, shelters and the damage is everywhere- if I can work to fix that through makin metal limbs like-" She gestured to Bender with her foot, who raised his metal limb proudly, "-this? Then that's a real big start."
There was a laugh and she moved to adjust her mask, since it hadn't been sitting properly, and then the stranger asked her name? Wasn't this supposed to be some sort of like... anonymous ball thing? Well, what the hell, not like she really cared for the festivities in the first place. "Name's Derby. Derby Vulcan." She offered her hand for a firm hardshake, a grin on her lips, "And yours?"
What a weird name for a kid. But it's not likek he could judge much, Tau was a pretty weird name too. But if her name is Derby, then he'd expect her brother's name to be Coaster or something like that. Keep it in the same theme, ya know? Eh, well, doesn't matter either way. Kid's crafty.
"If he made that, then I could see him liking metal working when he's old enough." Tau said, hoping that he guessed her brother's age well enough for that to make sense.
"A wheelchair? Hell, it's got wheels so I can give it a try. Can't promise much more then that though." He offered simply. While he was confidant in his skills, he also knew that wheelchairs were definitely not cars. But if he refused the chance to work on something new, he'd be missing a great chance. Situations like these are exactly why he became an explorer.
He nodded at Derby's goal of changing the world like it was an every day occurrence, "Mechanical work can do that." He offered casually, not exactly grasping the scale of her goal. "Yeah, my family's business started booming after the attacks. We were lucky to not get affected too much then." He reminisced about the long days spent repairing cars back to back like someone would think of a childhood friend they haven't seen in years, "I plan to open a repair shop where ever needs it most once I'm done exploring the region." He looked at Bender's leg in mechanical wonder, "It'd be nice to offer more then repairs, though."
He met her handshake firmly, and said with a smile, "Tau Opeyemi. Nice to meet ya, Derby." She would be an amazing mechanic to have around, and she was pretty cute too. Thankfully their shared interests kept him from becoming a fumbling mess, for now at least.
A laugh left her lips as the stranger spoke of her brother, "I mean, he already comes along with pop and me when we go do local tasks and stuff- so he'll probably end up in the field one way or another." A shrug rolled off her shoulders as she idly moved to survey the area around them, waiting a few beats as the boy spoke further. Derby raised an eyebrow as the skeleton all but eagerly took up the opportunity to take on her dads wheels. "Right-o, I can getcha his contact deets- I don't have much on me right now to like... physically write stuff down- you got a phone I could chuck everything onto?"
As he spoke about opening a repair shop the girl's face almost lit up, a hand moved to rest at her chin as she watched the skeleton-clad boy speak. "You've chosen the right industry to go into, i'll be damned. If you need any funding or anything when you wanna open your shop, the uni up in Ivy Town might help ya, and I could throw in a good word with my pops, he has a bunch of contacts around the place- but you're explorin?"
Her head tilted at the same time Benders did, both watching the boy curiously. "That takes some guts, some parts of this region are like woodwork in a metalshop, if ya know what i'm saying?"
At the reveal of his name Derby hummed, satisfied. "Guess we just threw the anonymity of the event out the window, huh?" Bender let out a chipper cry, moving to paw at Tau's leg before offering his own metal paw for a shake, determined. Maybe he wasn't a human, but he'd be damned if he couldn't throw down a great handshake.
"You wanna take on this maze then, Opeyemi? Can't promise i'll be all that good at whatever it throws at us if it's big brain stuff- but I am mighty strong if there's any dangerous things thrown our way, years in a metalshop does that to ya." She moved to roll up her sleeve, as if to prove her strength to Tau by showing her muscles before pulling them back down at continuing towards the door, Fennekin in stride.
Derby seemed happy when talking about her brother, which made Tau curious as to what having a sibling is like. "If he gets into cars, lemme know." He offered simply, not thinking much on it, "I could help him out." It's a simple offer, one he doesn't expect to be taken, but one he knows he should give. People are weird, but business isn't. And if Derby here had the skills to make Bender's leg, then getting on her good side could be good for business on his side.
And she was cute, but that was strictly non-business. For a quick moment, Tau wondered if she's able to pick him up... But he stopped that thought before it could take hold. This is business relations. Business. Nothing more. Right? Right.
At the mention of not having anything to write with, Tau quickly started patting where his pockets should be -- only to actually find a pocket. 'Huh, Ma, I guess you do think of everything...' He thought, feeling impressed while he pulled out what might be the worlds smallest notepad and pencil. Failing at not showing his surprise, he offers the tiny products to Derby, "This, uh, this is all I got." He said meekly. While he was holding out the tiny notepad and pen, he had completely forgotten about his cell phone that was sticking out of his other pocket.
"Ivy Town, eh? I'll head over there next chance I get to check it out." That was across some water, right? Ah well, he'd figure it out eventually. "Yeah, explorin' right now is like hearin' a rattling you can't find. But staying in Birch was driving me crazy. Born there. Never left. Gotta at least see some of the region, right?"
This event was supposed to be anonymous? "Ah sh-it, I completely forgot that." He muttered apologetically before bending down to gently shake Bender's metallic paw. "You're awfully well mannered, Emem could learn a thing or two from you." He cooed kindly to Derby's pokemon.
Once the handshake was over, Tau stood back up only to be flustered by Derby's show of muscle. Dang, she was cute, smart, and strong. She'd make a good leader, for sure. "Ah, y-yeah, lets give this maze a try." He said, trying to ignore the light blush he felt on his cheeks, "I can offer support and such, so we should make a good, uh, good team."
Into cars? Derby tilted her head and thought for a moment, "Well he does watch tandem drifting stuff- dunno if that counts though." A shrug, if Tau could help her brother in any way the kid'd probably be super glad, either that or the fact that Derby was showing him to more people she was familiar with- the only other person he'd seen her with was Juni and her other sharehouse mates and... that's an experience, for sure. She moved to pull down her sleeves and her hands reached out to take the tiny notebook, staring at it, almost confused for a moment.
They still made things this small? Well, whatever. It took Derby all of a minute to jot down a few details and slide it back over to him, a grin resting on her features. "Chucked mine and pops on there, in case you got any detail enquiries, i'm the go-to girl for that, he's all hands on." she moved to hand the notebook and pencil back, hands reeling back to rest at her hips.
Dude lived in Birch? Place was huge, she'd never stayed for very well but they hosted quite a few metalworking conventions down there, few old men with huge bears and muscles for days- was always a fun experience though. "No wonder you wanna go out and see the world- can't imagine a city boy who's content with not pushin' his limits and testing how far his chain goes before yankin' him back."
Bender let out an excited yip at being called well-mannered, eyes batting innocently before reeling back his paw and bounding back over to Derby, situating himself right inbetween her feet. "Naw, this boys only well mannered when he's fed- his metal paw once crushed in a can and splatted it all over the house cuz he was mad hungry." Said Fennekin let out a proud cry, eyes practically sparkling as if what Derby had just said was a praise. Yeah right.
Derby's grin heightened as Tau prepared for a maze. "Damn right, we'll show this maze who's boss." That was no question, two people familiar with the metal industry were more than definitely going to be able to blitz it.. "Let's get a move on then, partner."
You enter a room with walls lined with shelves containing all sorts of spooky oddities. To one side is a bubbling cauldron watched over by a Mismagius, and next to it a wrack of ingredients with a sign: "Complete the brew." Use the big wooden spoon to stir in ingredients, making a Cooking roll! All players work on it together.
Any interest was better then no interest, and Tau repeated this thought process out loud. "Every little bit counts." He said simply, as if the fates have decided Derby's brothers fate already.
He received the tiny notepad and paper back eagerly, and smiled more eagerly then he was aware of, "Sweet, thanks. I'll be in touch with both of you, then." He was almost charming when in business mode, if the person he was talking to already had a bias for him.
Her understanding for him wanting to explore was welcoming. Man, they get along so well. Was she into men? Tau quietly hoped so, but was too afraid to ask. She said this was supposed to be an anonymous event, and he already went as far to have both her and her dad's contact into. He can't push his luck with asking who she's attracted to as well, no. That's asking for disaster. "Yup, I'll be going as far as I can. Hope to see a lot before I open shop." He said simply, proud of his dedication to his goals.
Derby's story about Bender's hunger brought a genuine laughter out of the lanky skeleton, "Such a strong personality for a little guy," Tau said between laughter, "Emem here is known to neigh loud enough to wake the street if he's left alone for too long." Emem gently kicked at the ground, feeling a little embarrassed from the sudden story telling.
Without a second thought Tau followed Derby into the maze, while also appreciating her figure as discreetly as possible on their way in. She seemed strong. Maybe she could pick him up? Wait, didn't he think this already? Focus, focus!
The room was downright spooky. Emem was sticking close to his trainer, not wanting to get lost. "Complete the brew..." He read, then paused a moment, "I ain't cooked a day in my life. Let's hope this goes well." As soon as he began to try and improvise a plan, he asked Derby, "Are you good at stuff like this?"
Bender let out a loud cry, raising his paw and sticking out a tongue at Tau. Damn right he had a strong personality! As Tau spoke of his own pokemon Derby's eyes drew to the Blitzle and she let out another laugh, moving up to push a hand through her ponytail. "Aw, Emem sounds like a darling lil' bloke, what a dedicated partner!" she smiled at the skeleton painted mon, she couldn't imagine Bender losing his shit bein' alone, though she was almost always with him.
Entering the room now, her gaze flicked around, taking everything in. Upon noticing the Mismagious Derby moved to raise a hand upwards in a wave to the pokemon, before noticing the sign... she was gonna have to cook- or at least stir this brewy thing? Derby wasn't even good at makin' soup, she could make a damn good cereal but...
At Tau's question the girl shrugged, "I've mixed a few things in my time- maybe not too well but they've been edible." Bender moved around the pot, surveying it with his keen Fennekin eye. There was a pause before he moved to nudge some of the ingredients with his nose, which Derby picked up and moved to dump into the brew. "Can't be too hard, it's already preheated after all?"
The Mismagius seems pleased with the brew! She takes a taste, then gathers 4 Rare Candies each from one of her shelves to give you. Your gifts have been sent! Onto the next room!
Congratulations! You have advanced to the second room!
You have entered the room.
What will you do?
You enter a room that is lit only by a large moon-shaped light in the center of the ceiling, tiny LED stars that cover the rest of the ceiling like a night sky, and one dimly backlit plaque with instructions: "Pick a partner and sing".
A Midday, Midnight, and Dusk form Lycanroc sit around the room, howling at the false moon. Each has a small barrel hanging from their neck. Choose a Lycanroc and make a Performance roll! Players may choose the same or different Lycanroc.
If Emem could blush through paint and fur, he would have at Derby's compliment. He was dedicated! And Tau was dedicated to him! He neighed proudly at the thought, liking this Derby person more as time went on.
Between Tau's and Derby's effort for the strange potion, the mismagius seemed to approve of it. Tau let out a sigh of relief, thankful to be out of the strange situation. This was a weird kind of maze, and he wasn't a fan of the spooky theme. "I'm glad that worked," Tau said, walking into the next room with Derby if she chose to, "They really played up the spooky theme, huh."
The next room confirmed his thoughts, as nothing but a large pale moon lit the room. The sign told him to pick a partner and sing. Wait, sing? Really? "I'm ready to make a fool out of myself if you are.." He said hesitantly.
Being naturally submissive, and unsure of the situation, Tau would wait for Derby to choose a singing partner before he made sure to choose a different one. Though if she seemed as indecisive as he felt, he'd take the initiative and carefully approach one of the three pokemon randomly.
Thank everything they'd managed to work the ingredients properly together and made the spooky mismagious happy, who knows what that witchy mon was actually capable of if the brew exploded or somethin'. Upon the door opening Bender let out an excited cheer from besides Derby, rushing ahead, and a chuckle left Derby's lips. She glanced back at Tau for a moment as he spoke, eyebrow raising. "Yeah, coulda blown up right in our faces, then!" an eyeroll, "It's got a creepy aura, but i'm sure there's somethin' spookier that'll be ahead further in the maze.."
She began walking now. "So better be on guard, aye? For like jumpscares nn stuff." Reasonable advice! Derby fiddled with her toolkit for a second as the duo and their mons enter the next room, only bringing her eyes up at the distinct sound of howling. Confused, she blinked for a second, before her gaze met the backlit plague...
Aw man, she was awful at singing. At karaoke nights Derby sticking up to singing another classic rock tune would only be met with groans and a side eye, she knew she wasn't great at it, but hell, whatever. "This is some kinda weird maze..." She muttered, moving to tuck her hands out of her belt and to glance at Tau with a half-smile, "Naw, if we both make fools of ourselves it cancels it out and actually sounds decent, probably."
She glanced around for a moment, taking in the three lycanrock before meeting eyes with the Midday form. Yep- okay. "...Let's do this, midday."
The Lycanroc is pleased with your performance, and gives you 2 Rare Candies out of its neck barrel! Please update your bag! Onto the next room!
You have entered the room.
What will you do?
You enter a room filled with cobwebs and spider Pokemon. You must navigate the webs to get through the room. There is a long table in the middle of the room. On top of the table, there are three candy bowls, and a sign reading "Choose 1". The bowl on the left has a live Joltik atop it. The bowl in the middle has a creepy hand sticking out of it. The bowl on the right has a cobweb atop. Pick a bowl. Players may pick different bowls or the same one. Roll one die at the end of your post.
