Following the directions left in your letter, you find yourself high atop Mt. Bravado, at the entrance of a grand courtyard. Have you been here before? The place looks well maintained, and well trodden for an ‘abandoned’ mountain. The bulletin board that says EVENTS across the top is clearly new. That much is clear, even under a thin layer of thawing snow from the recent storm. The single page pinned to the board flutters in the breeze, beckoning you to read it.

You can see your breath rising in constant, frosty clouds; winter will soon be here on the mountain. However, seems like the Zoroark snoring across the way didn’t get the memo. They’re covered in a healthy dusting of snow still, so gods only know how long they’ve been there. There is a mailman’s messenger bag propped up next to them… Maybe they know about your letter?

>> There are better places to sleep than on the snow, you know?
>> Porter wake up, you fucked up big time.

[The Zoroark gives a large yawn, flashing their many sharp teeth. They brush the snow leisurely from their coat as they speak, clearly unfussed by the cold.]


PORTER
I’m going to pretend you didn’t just say that.

So, you got my letter? I was starting to think I’d missed yours in the mountain of them Darkrai gave me to deliver.

Heh, nice. Still got it.

>> Ask about the bulletin board
>> How many letter could you possibly have to send?

>> Porter wake up, you fucked up big time.

[A wide, toothy smile breaks across their muzzle in a snark slash. They shake the snow from their fur wildly as they stand, hitting you with more than a few lumps of ice. Brrrr…]


PORTER
Aw, I’m flattered! You remembered my name!

But, of course you did. Who could possibly forget Porter Onyx Icepaw, messenger of the gods?

That’s rhetorical. Don’t answer that.

Please.

>> Ask about the bulletin board
>> Who are you, again?
>> Thought you died.

[Porter smiles, and walks over to give the wooden board a pat. The gesture seems affectionate… At least, as affectionate as one can be to a bulletin board.]


PORTER
Isn’t it beautiful? I made it myself out of some old wood lying around the temple. Bookcases and the like. Probably from it’s glory days.

Totally professional, right? … Just don’t look at the back. That part is definitely a safety hazard.

PORTER
2,222 letters, give or take. All hand sealed.

But who's counting?

PORTER
[They’ve looked away from you.]

PORTER
I got better.

[You don’t think Pokemon recover from being dead, but alright.]

[You look closely at the parchment that beckoned you when you arrived, only for Porter to snatch it from under your nose.

Guess if you wanted to read it yourself, you shouldn’t have woken them up.]


PORTER
Come one come all, to Mt. Bravado’s first annual Holiday Gift Exchange: the Starlight Carnival!

Offer your talents forward to the Tribunal, and spread the seasonal cheer to your fellows.

Authors and artists are always in need, but creatives of all kinds may join the festivities. If you are unsure if you are eligible to participate, reach out to an event runner.

The Tribunal shows extra favor to those who participate in the exchange, but especially for those who go above and beyond in lending a helping hand.

Sign-ups will close in yadda yadda yadda...

[They mutter over the dates and what sounds like many other important details before pinning the notice back on the board.]

>> Yeah, maybe I should read that myself.
>> Starlight Carnival? This just sounds like Secret Santa.

PORTER
What the fuck is a ‘Santa’.

[They seem either genuinely perplexed, or perhaps they are just messing with you. Likely the latter.

You decide to just respect this cultural difference, lest you get fucked with further.]


>> Read the notice (for real this time).
