========== WRITTEN TEST ==========

It's midday in the Dreamer's Eye, and your team has just gotten themselves registered at the Researchers Guild! Having some free time, your teammates decide to explore the open halls, but when they round the corner to move to the next, they encounter a group of Pokémon blocking the way.

[ "Ummm, excuse us," Crystal said quietly, trying to push past. "Crystal, you're not going to get through they're to many. Let's just wait till they move," Mira suggested. Crystal gave a defeated look and sat next to Mira.]

Many of them are chatting amicably, but a few in the back can be heard grumbling and snapping irritably, and the cause is revealed to be a somewhat tall Flygon attempting to shove her way through (and by the sound of it, accidentally hitting several Pokémon with her wings and tail as she goes).

[ "Hey Mira, look it's a Flygon! I wonder where she's going in such a rush?" Crystal questioned, more to herself than her partner. "We'll find out eventually," Mira mumbled her response.]

"Ohhh... Excuse me, pardon me, Leader's Assistant comin' through... C'mon guys, can’t you have your little meeting thing somewhere that isn't blocking a hallway? 'scuse me, sorry, jeez..."

[ "Hey Mira, we should go talk to her," Crystal said while trying to walk up to the Flygon. Mira put a paw in front of Crystal's path and replied, "Crystal, she looks in a rush and we shouldn't bother her if she's in a rush."]

When she finally makes it out, you see that her arms are laden with a surprisingly large pile of thick paper scrolls. A large blueprints tube can be seen on her back, the strap crossing her chest diagonally and connecting with a metal clasp, while her wrists bear one gleaming armband each; silver worn on the right, and black worn on the left.

[ "Look, Mira her armbands are so cool." Crystal stated. Mira gave a simple nod in reply.]

Your team has only a couple seconds to take this in, however, as an unfortunate misstep results in paper flying everywhere and the Flygon falling flat on her face. There are a few derisive chuckles from the group, but as none of them move forward to help the hapless earth dragon, your team steps up instead.

[ Crystal rushed forward, followed by Mira in her wake. "Are you ok, miss?" Crystal asked, while Mira started to pick up papers. "I'm alright," the Flygon told Crystal, "I just need to get my papers." "Here," replied Mira with a stack of papers, "I think this is all."]

"Oooof, so many papers... There we go," the Flygon mutters, balancing everything back into a manageable pile before straightening and breaking out into a cheery smile. "Thanks so much for helping me pick all these up. I swear, that’s like the fifth time I’ve tripped today; I’m such a klutz…" She blinks. "Heeeey, wait a minute. You don't look familiar. Are you visiting the Guild?"

[ "No, we just joined today. We're team Shining Moon!" The cheerful dratini replied.]

Upon hearing that the team has just gotten done registering, she breaks out in a warm smile.

"Well no wonder I don’t remember you, you're new!" She inclines her long neck in the best bow she can manage without dropping everything all over again. "Welcome to the Researchers Guild! I'm Kali, I'm one of the Guild Leaders' assistants here. Pleased to meet you! And you are…?"

[ "I'm Crystal," Crystal replied, "and this is my friend Mira." Mira gave a polite nod and said, "Nice to meet you Kali."]

She smiles again. "Nice names! You don't hear many like that around here, but then again Andalusst is kind of a mish-mash of a whole bunch of different kinds of names. It's always nice to hear 'em since Pokémon do tend to come in from all over the place, after all. And speaking of which, did you guys get here from the fog or something?"

[ "Yeah, we did. It was terrible to walk in. Luckily, we found our way to the right town before it got too bad." Mira finally spoke up. "It was really scary! I couldn't even see my tail in front of my face!" Crystal added, making Mira and Kali giggle.]

Would you look at that. Whether you like it or not, it seems you’re stuck with Kali for the time being, as she seems to be quite curious about your team.

"Really? Hmm, yeah, that's how it is for a few people around here. I'm not an Andalusst native myself, but I figured I'd stick around. Anyway, now that you're here and you've been registered as a team, what name did you pick?"

[Kali giggled to herself, " Oh that's right, you told me it was team Shining Moon. Why'd you pick that for your team name?" "Nostalgia," Mira said quietly. "Because the first time we met, it was at night. And I was being attacked and Mira saved me!" Crystal replied happily.]

She waits for the response with an expectant look, and laughs lightly when it’s given.

"Hah, that's so much better than the name I used when I signed up, wow. I was kind of, uh, young and silly back then, I guess you could say, so the name I used was... yeeeeaaaaah, pretty bad."

["It couldn't be that bad. What was it?" Crystal asked. "I'd rather not say," Kali replied, trying to change the subject. "Come on tellll mmmeeee," Crystal pushed. Mira sighed, "Crystal, if she doesn't want to share she doesn't HAVE to."]

You notice she doesn't say the name she used, but before you can ask about it, the green Dragon-type tosses out another question with a curious tilt of her head.

"So what's your reason for joining the Guild, anyway? There are three guilds here in Andalusst, and even if I like it here with the Researchers, I know it's not the best fit for everyone since we're kinda knowledge-oriented; you could've just as easily registered with the Hunters, or the Explorers. So why here?"

["Well, Mira's really smart, like REALLY smart and I want to learn as much as I possibly can. And the Hunters seemed to scary for me, and all the treasure is greedy and we're not greedy. Then the Explorers are on the front lines and up close to fighting. And neither of like fighting, Mira calls it something like pacifist, so Researchers seemed best." Crystal replied, almost never stopping]

Kali listens quite intently as your team tells its story, her earlier cheerful expression changing to one of thoughtful consideration. She waits patiently for the response to wrap up, before speaking again. "Wow, that's quite a tale! Not many Pokémon come through here with a story like that. Seems like everyone in the Guilds has a driving force behind what they do, and some reasons are... well, better than others."

She pauses, before her voice regains its chipper tone. "So that’s the "why" and the "how"; what about the "what"? What do you think made the Guild decide to accept you into the ranks?" She says this with honest curiosity, not a trace of taunt or teasing in her tone, and listens as your team lists off their skills.

["Well, Mira's really smart and knows how to do a lot more than me so she has a great reason." Crystal said sadly. "You have a great reason too. Her parents were very strict and didn't let her play roughly. She barely got to leave her house. But she learned how to build and fix just about anything. And you're real curious." Mira reassured the sad dratini.]

"Oh wow, that's pretty cool! You guys are lucky. Y'know sometimes I wish I had a better skill set like that; then maybe I’d be more help to the Guild. Pretty much the only things I do around here are draw and deliver papers everywhere and, well, get stuck helping Archie."

["your drawings are great. I saw them when I picked them up," Mira reassured Kali]

She says the last part with sudden venom, and your team gets the feeling that she’s not entirely fond of the Pokémon in question.

"I mean yeah sure he's one of the Guild Leaders, but he's just so... so... annoying, always bossing people around and taking credit for everything and acting like he's so much smarter than everyone else. And I'm always the one having to put up with him since someone has to help him but everyone else always runs off before they get stuck with him instead!"

Kali lets out a great huff of frustration, glancing away for a moment before remembering she has an audience. Giving an embarrassed chuckle as her face slowly reddens, she says, "And oh gosh, there I go running my mouth, ahaha! Sorry, I'm not talking too much or anything, am I? I kind of have a tendency to ramble on sometimes... And I probably really shouldn’t be bad-mouthing Archimedes...”

[Crystal started giggling and Mira gave a smile.]

With a sudden, panicked expression abruptly crossing her face as she remembers the mass of paper in her arms, she blurts, "And OH MY GOSH I still need to take care of these!"

She starts running down the hall, then abruptly pulls an about-face - accidentally whacking a passerby with her tail while doing so - to stammer, "Uh, it was nice meeting you! I'll, er, see you later, I hope?" She attempts to raise an arm to wave back, but stops when the paper pile in her arms wobbles precariously, and instead flashes a quick grin before stomping briskly away.

["Bye Kali!" Crystal waved her tail, and Mira with her paw. Now seeing a clear path through the crowd, Mira turned to Crystal. "Now do you want to look around?" The absol asked, pointing to the open path. "Let's go!" Cheered the dratini, who was already slithering down the path.]
