========== 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.

   Sam crossed her electric 'arms' & muttered, "Seriously..." She shook her head. Jake looked up to the Rotom, exclaiming, "Isn't this just exciting, Sammy?" With a quick glance at the Tiny Leaf 'mon, she sighed, shaking her head again.

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).

"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..."

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, while settled around her waist is a brown leather belt with a small satchel on each side.

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.

   Jake hopped around the small grouping of papers, grabbing as many as he could in his mouth. Sam slowly & unwillingly grabbed as few papers as she could before they handed the Flygon the papers.

"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?"

   "Yeap, we were just le-" "We're new members, yes!" Jake shouted, cutting Sam off.

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…?"

   As Sam opened her mouth to speak again, Jake shouted again. "I'm Jake & she's Sammy!" Sam glared at the turtle, who was ignoring the electric ghost.

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?"

   Jake turned to the Rotom this time. Sam proceeded to say, "We've just been walking around it for awhile, & got here today."

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?"

   With the continuous, curious stare of the Turtwig, the Rotom muttered, "RodShark."

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."

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; you could've just as easily registered with the Hunters, or the Explorers. So why here?"

   Jake hopped again. "I've always wanted to learn new things," his face became solemn as he whispered, "No thanks to..." He shook his head, smiling once more. Samuel simply explained, "I'm being forced to follow him."

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.

   "I can bring the hard work needed for the guild!" Jake exclaimed to the green Dragon. The ghost said, "I guess...whatever you need."

"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."

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...”

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?"

   Jake shouted a quick "'later!" while Sam uncrossed one of her 'arms' & waved slowly.

She starts raising an arm to wave back, but stops when the paper pile in her arms wobbles precariously, and instead flashes a quick grin before stomping quickly away.

   After a moment of silence the Rotom finally said, "Well...This guild is gonna be crazier than I thought." Jake laughed quietly, then remarked, "You're starting to like this place, aren't you?" With an unimpressed glare, Sam flicked the Turtwig's forehead.
