Jadyn started to work on her makeshift map, borrowing some colored pencils from some kid. "I'll do my best, but I'm no artist, so don't expect it to be a Picasso, alright?" In the meanwhile, she took the time to answer the questions Ismael and Russell posed.
"Just say plants and animals next time kiddo," she said dryly, pausing to look up at Ismael before resuming her drawing. "Plants, there are a bunch of garden-variety things all over. People here like their gardens. Some of the species are actually really rare, and that's how some people make their living here. Again, mostly garden stuff. You can find a lot of vines and stuff though. Ferns, flowers, whatever." To enunciate, Jadyn fluttered a hand in the air, presumably trying to gesture at their surroundings. "Trees are of the tropical variety, you won't find many evergreens. There are huge fields to the East, we're entering West by the way. Apple trees, Eden's apples are pretty pricy. Go for quite a bit of cash. The process is super secret, but Granny Wentre says all of them have been plucked clean by now. Good thing it's already end of season. If perhaps this doesn't last, maybe they can start planting again without too much trouble." Her hand suddenly stilled for a bit before adding things in a lot of different places. "Look at the bottom for what the numbers mean. What was the other question again?" she asked. "Oh yeah, animals. Just normal animals. Squirrels, stray cats and dogs, snakes, we have a snake problem, foxes, the like. Sometimes more exotic creatures wander in from the jungle. "
"As for any special areas," said Jadyn slowly, "I... Let me think." After a long pause, Jadyn picked up pen and resumed both writing and speaking. "To the left, there's the clinic, barracks, and storage. You'll find supplies there, combat-capable people, and people who need to be helped. Straight ahead is the community center. People go there to barter, to talk, to shop and sell, all sorts of things. But the second and third levels are capable of holding out a large number of Grimm. You can issue a retreat there, but I don't think that carriers will fit." At this point it seemed that the huntress had finished her makeshift map, which she handed off to Finch, who'd been helping villagers along to the carriers in the meanwhile.
He looked it over shortly before taking out his scroll and snapping a picture of it, saying "Thanks Jadyn, maybe it was a good idea having you here after all. It'll help to have someone familiar with the layout and all of that. I'm going to check in with the... whoever leads the town, alright? You guys," he gestured to the team, "can relay your plan to Jadyn instead."
"Go, go, no one's stopping you." Jadyn waved her comrade on, taking back the map in the process. She stood up and handed it to Mauve, then stepped to face the whole team. "If you need to split up, someone absolutely has to go across the town, across the fields, because there are houses over there too, and they can't be ignored. The forests to the North and South don't hold Grimm that you should worry about, maybe a stray beowolf or two, but the people here can take care of those. The jungles to the East are what you need to worry about. There are mountains fairly close by too. The elders always tell stories about some winged monsters and beasts from there to scare the kids, but who knows? They might not be completely false. Alright?"
To answer Nathan, Mauve shook her head very slightly. It wouldn't be needed with Jadyn's map, and conserving fuel would be a good idea, especially against Aceans and any winged Grimm that might come from the mountains. Plus, she didn't want Jadyn to feel like they didn't trust her. That would be bad. "Thank you very much for your help Jadyn, it's reassuring to know that we won't be walking blind. Now of course we would need to split up. Take inventory, gather people who may be able to help in holding back the Grimm, send them to hold ground around the border, especially the North and South so we don't have to worry about it and can worry exclusively about the Aceans and the Grimm that might populate the Eastern jungle or mountains." She flicked her gaze to the East for a moment, and if she focused, it was true that there were mountains nearby, particularly nasty-looking ones too. If she remembered correctly, she'd been through the area before, when running from the White Fang. Some very dangerous Grimm did indeed reside on those mountains. "Just doing a quick sweep of the town and most definitely the community center is a good idea too. Any other ideas?" As she asked the question, Mauve looked directly at Nathan. He was the strategic, logical type, and she wanted to see to what degree he could help in that area.
Here's the map in link form because you'll need to see it enlarged for it to be any good: http://imgur.com/a/zAwSW

Natendo, I'm going to need Nathan to take a larger role in strategy for this mission, not too much, just enough so that I'm not playing the sole decision make and the one who knows how those decisions will play out.
Oh, it's not a rapid thing to take place in the span of a day, it's a thing where each of us post as our characters in a separate thread in Beacon Academy. Feel free to look at some initiations there, you're new, so it may be different from what you're expecting. Alright, so I'm a little busy these days (exams) so could one of you do me a favor and PM JJB?
Cerise made herself comfy-well, as comfy as you could be without back support-and watched as the fight unfolded, taking note of Samuel's semblance. She couldn't quite tell what it was yet, but it apparently enabled him to hear things from far away. Super hearing didn't seem to be linked in any way to the not-so-little ball behind his back though. One that would apparently go 'boom' after charged.
Focusing her attention instead on Juno, Cerise tilted her head ever so slightly in his direction to show she was paying attention. "Then talk. Preferably before your archer friend gets smited. It looks pretty grisly, I'd hate to see what atrocious things that could do to an individual not under the protection of aura."
Alright, I'll post us in the Team list. ATLA-Atlas, and hunter green, with Aurora as their leader.
Now as for the initiation, would we want JJB to run it, or would we want to run it ourselves? And if the latter, would we want one of us to moderate, or someone else?
Alright, so far we have ATLA (blue, green, brown, or white), GAAL(blue, white-ish blue), HAAT(orange, yellow, red), LATTA(light brown), TANG(orange or yellow) (Sankyuu January-I mean Jaq), and GALA(black, purple, blue). It seems that we've agreed on Aurora being leader, so would we want to stick to the leader-name-first rule?
Alright, decision's been made. Tina, Gwylan, and Nero are in. Now, we've gotta decide on team name, color, and leader. For leader, I'll put up Aurora. She's not strategic or anything, but she's used to leading, is fairly logical, and socially skilled. Anyone else want to put up their character for leader?
As for name, these are our initials:
I'm terrible with these things, but I do see ATLA, though, Atlas, and the color associated could be blue or green? Or white pertaining to RWBY. Feel free to point out better names.
