Cascadia Adventure: Auronous Caverns Intro
The sea was a nice place, really. Boats were nice as well. Lazily floating among the green-blue waters, fish swimming below... Boats were nice. Some even had food on them. Usually seafood. Sailboats, motorboats, house boats, all were nice types of boats.

James was stuck in the front of the boat alongside Maxwell, who was curled up in his lap with his back arched. He most likely wanted to kill the captain; a man standing at about 5'3 who was missing a few teeth and sanity. Multiple times he had charged his boat over a wave which could've capsized them with a crooked grin.
"'Er kay, this looks like a good spot for treasure huntin'!" Captain called out, pulling the ship to a stop abrubtly, throwing James and the Buizel towards the back of the ship. The Buizel jumped up and almost mauled the seaman before James grabbed him by the foot and pulled him back. "Heh, I fiesty little weasel fit for the sea. Good luck with him, boy. Try not to drown, er' kay?" The man tossed James a bin- James assumed it was incase there was anything valuable that he wanted to leave on the boat
so that the man could steal it.
"No, thanks though." James said. He had already prepared himself for this. He had brought a watertight bag with him: useful until he had found one of the underground cavern. That was his purpose for coming here: Attempting to find a cave and explore it. Hopefully, he would find one and come back with treasure. He had also brought a wetsuit, which he was now wearing, his normal clothes in his bag."We'll be off now. Are you gonna stay here or come back later?" James asked before he left. He didn't want to be abandoned out in the middle of the sea.
"Ehhhhhh... I'll stay. I can fish a bit an' maybe find some food for supper while I wait. You go along now." The seaman said, waving James away. The boy nodded and looked at Maxwell. The weasel went first into the water, making a dive into it from the side of the boat. James held onto the side of the ship, wary of the water. What if there was a school of Carnavah or something similar? James eventually swallowed his fear took the jump into the icy water. The cold gave him an inital jolt, but Maxwell quickly grabbed onto him and remembered his SURFing skills.
"Okay, DIVE down. Look around for caves." James said and Maxwell nodded. The Buizel DOVE and both James and himself struggled to see through the water without goggles. They came back up for air, then went back down. It continued like this for some time, until eventually they took a short break, breathing heavily above the water. The two took the plunge one more time, searching for their chance at treasure...
OOC: If anybody does have an open slot, that's great, but otherwise there's no need to rush getting me in. Stats

James' mind spread out a bit and it thought of all kinds of lovely things. Maybe the Sharpedo killed the captain and even if we defeat him we can't be saved. Or maybe the Sharpedo belongs to the captain and he just let him out for a bit to kill us so he can save gas on the way back. Or maybe, the Sharpedo has friends lurking below you James! I'm sure you'll be fine though, go along now and save Maxwell!
Speak of the Devil... James thought to himself, watching his friend be chased around by the shark. This is why I thought about not coming in. Irony is cruel. Let's see... Most of my pokemon are at the shops, Vincent can't swim well, and there's no way in hell I'm letting Neville out with a large pool of a conductor. So Maxwell is stuck alone... Focus on his survival first I guess, then see if I can take him or her down. "Maxwell!" James yelled, waving and hoping that the Sharpedo wouldn't switch it's focus. "Set up an AQUA RING, then see if METRONOME can help!"
