THE OLD LEGENDS
Everyone knows the old legends.


The three birds that fly over Kanto, keeping nature in balance.


The faerie that resides in Ilex Forest as the spirit of nature.


The giant dragon that creates and rules the clear skies, while living at the summit of the giant pillar in one of the many islands of Hoenn.


The giant that is said to reside within the Snowpoint Temple's cavernous basement.


The urban legend of an insectoid cloned from a fossil and illegally genetically-modified by Team Plasma several years ago.








They're not legends anymore.




They're real.

SUE CRA
You used to be an ordinary citizen. One day you stumbled upon a blog on the internet. It was written by a woman named Sue Cra. This unlikely name, according to Sue, was the result of a misspelling on her birth certificate (originally 'Cray', Cra is still pronounced the same way).


Sue's blog, interestingly titled "Überload" followed her work: she claimed to be a historian, researching the old myths of the world. She detailed her findings on her blog: if it was the latest Neolithic cave painting discovered, or yet another theory on the mysteriously desolate Newmoon Island where nobody dared to venture into, it was on Sue's blog.


You found this interesting, and began to follow the blog, not realising that this action might have consequences ...


On the 14th of December, Sue Cra's blog was updated. Through the next week, the world changed.


***


THE 2012 PHENOMENON
The 2012 Phenomenon. Yet another crackpot end of the world theory. The Mayan calendar stated that the world would end in 2012? Ridiculous. Preposterous. Utter bullsh*t.

Sue Cra didn't think so.




Sue Cra updated her blog on the 14th of December. Why? Because, she believed, she would be dead the next week.

Hey everyone! This is Sue speaking.


This will be my very last update. Next week, the world will end, as the Mayans predicted.


We're already slipping into decline. Global warming, political crises, wars, disturbances in the ecosystem... the end of the world isn't the logical next step, but it is logical. Maybe a few days down the line. But surely, it's coming, whenever it will.


For those who say the Mayans didn't count the extra days in leap years or whatever: I reply, so what? Maybe the world won't end. So what? Maybe the world needs to end. After all, it's in pretty bad shape.




Anyway, goodbye. It's been one hell of a ride. :)

-Sue
Sue Cra's blog: last update, 14.12.2012








Throughout the week leading up to the 'end of the world', the world was beginning to change drastically.


Sightings of the old legends became abundant throughout the world.


The Tohjo Falls dispute ended violently when an anonymous suicide bomber detonated a bomb that caused the entire cave to come down on the activists and the soldiers at the border.


The Magikarp in the Lake of Rage floated, belly-up, as the Gyarados began to attack their own kind. Charles 'Chuck' Norst, Gym leader of the city of Cianwood, was attacked by his own Pokemon.


The weather went haywire everywhere: sunshine abruptly turns to a downpour and back within minutes, the seas flood, snow bombards the tropical regions, and thunder and lightning inexplicably boom over the remote seas.


And on top of all this, a small rainstorm over the city of Pacifidlog rapidly turns into a gigantic and monstrous hurricane that begins a devastating global circuit ...


You wonder what could possibly be the cause of this. Due to the unpredictably horrible weather conditions, you have been given leave off school/work until all returns to normal.


On the 21st of December, 2012, while at your home in Washington, DC, preparing for the inevitable yet unpredictable hurricane strike that is forecasted for this week, you get a call.




This call changes your life.

A CALL FOR HELP FROM GOD


YOU: Hello?


?: (static) ... lo.


YOU: Who is this?


?: You kn ... (static) ... me. I am (static).


YOU: I'm sorry, I didn't get that.


?: I am God.


(Silence. The static suddenly dissipates.)


YOU: What?


?: I am known by many names. The one I prefer is Arceus, but the name of the human I am possessing is Susan Bliss Cra. While earthbound, I am called 'Sue'.


YOU: Is this a prank call?!


SUE: No. I am Sue Cra - which happens to be Arceus spelled backwards. I am a direct creation of Arceus, made to be his vassal among humans, and in case the worst happens, I will become his human body.


YOU: Give me a good reason not to hang up.


SUE: All will be explained.


(Hang-up button dialled. The line remains connected.)


YOU: Why isn't this hanging up?!


SUE: I still possess some of the powers of my old self. I can manipulate reality such that you will hear me in your head rather than on this phone. Would that be preferable to you?


(Silence for a few seconds.)


YOU: How on earth did you do that?


SUE: Now do you believe me?


YOU: Er ...


SUE: I need to speak to you. I'll meet you at a place you know well. This location will now be communicated telepathically.


(Silence.)


SUE: Meet me there. Now.


(End of call.)


Transcript of call





[/CENTER]
Within seconds, you are braving unimaginable weather to get to the rendezvous location 'Sue' asked you to get to. You're not completely sure if she's sane; but you know that she has awe-inspiring and terrible powers, and even with a fraction of her power left, she could blow you to smithereens.


Later, you cannot recall if you went to a park, or a cafe, or even the nearest grocery store. Maybe a gas station. But you remember the meeting clearly.



***


THE DAY OF THE MEETING
Sue Cra looks exactly like the pictures on her blog. 5' 7'' and slim, with short brown hair and glow-in-the-dark orange spectacles.




But on the net, her eyes aren't blank and lacking in emotion and pupil.




They aren't unfeeling and golden.


Within minutes, she explains the situation telepathically.



***


BEFORE AND HOW IT ALL CHANGED
Arceus isn't God. It'swhat is called an Entity.


The Entities are a pantheon of the first Pokemon species to have been created. Even they aren't sure how they were made. Arceus' species has ruled the pantheon since the beginning of time. Every century or so, the current pantheon of Entities crumble into cosmic dust, which reforms into a new pantheon.


Only one Pokemon in each species of Entities can exist at a time. Therefore, approximately fifty Entities are alive at any given time. Each Entity carries the memories and wisdom of its predecessors, but a fresh and strong body. The Entities' physical bodies cannot hold the strain of hosting so much power at once, however, and so new bodies for old minds are created every hundred years.


The current pantheon of the 21st century, however, has decided that the Earth needs a fresh start. They view the relationship between humans and Pokemon as akin to a master and his or her slave. This must be changed.



***


COUP


The first artificial Entity, Mewtwo, is the leader of this school of thought, the Separatists. Mewtwo was created in 1996, when a group of Kanto researchers cloned it from the DNA of another Entity, Mew. Thus, it harbours great resentment for humankind, as they created it to be a WMD for terrorists.


Mewtwo has been rallying Entities to it since it was formally accepted into the pantheon in 1999. Now, thirteen years later, Mewtwo and its Separatists have staged a revolt.


Ever since the Separatists were created, they have been petitioning Arceus to allow them to wipe out the human race. However, Arceus, who didn't want all of its hard work to go to waste, refused. Finally, Mewtwo took matters into its own hands.




On the 15th, Mewtwo and a few of its most trusted Separatist allies stormed Arceus' home: the pocket dimension known as the Hall of Origin. There, they overpowered the Entity in charge of creation itself with ease. Arceus alone was no match for the five or six Entities that attacked him. Combining their powers, they banished Arceus from the pantheon, condemning its mortal body to cosmic dust that contained the being of Arceus. Mewtwo trapped most of Arceus' soul in a device of its own creation, the Pandora Machine.






However, a few grains of the dust were overlooked. These tiny fractions of Arceus' power generated themselves into Saffron City. Every Entity has a 'vassal', a human being who they personally created to hold their soul in case their mortal body was unexpectedly lost. What was left of Arceus' soul took refuge in his vassal, Sue Cra.





***


THE VASSALS
Your destiny unfolds before your eyes. Arceus/Sue now tells you that you are a vassal of one of the few Entities that did not ally with the Separatists. Mewtwo apparently does not think them powerful enough to warrant their capture, now that their leader, Arceus, is gone.


Sue gingerly hands you a small orb, a centimetre in diametre. Its surface is soft and its texture feels like that of meat. She tells you that if you swallow this orb, you will gain the ability to sense other vassals and Entities. You must seek out vassals to aid you, and you must find Entities to help you as well. If possible, you must cause Separatists to defect from their cause.


You think it over, and finally take a chance.




You swallow the orb.





***


YOUR MISSION


to find the Entity whose vassal you are (your host Entity)
to find other vassals to help you
to find other Entities to help you
to defeat Separatists who may attack you
to attack the Separatist fortress in Cerulean Cave, once you think you are strong enough
to defeat Mewtwo, once you think you are strong enough
to destroy the Pandora Machine, and set free the rest of Arceus' soul




and last, but in no way least,




to not die




Of course, it's never that easy.





***


POWERS AND ABILITIES
You do control your host Entity, whom you'll meet as soon as we start. But they won't be battling any legendaries, as they will dissipate into cosmic dust, part of which gives you some powers, and part of which forms your weapon.


There are two kinds of powers, risk and no risk powers. A no risk power has no toll on your health; however, a risk power takes some of your energy. On coming into contact with the cosmic dust of your host Entity, you gain two no risk powers, which is defensive or helpful in nature, and one risk power, which is offensive and more powerful but takes a little of energy. Causing your skin to harden and become almost invulnerable, or giving yourself an accelerated healing ability is no risk, but creating projectile spikes from your arms or summoning flames out of thin air is definitely a risk ability. We will gain a few extra powers later on.


Now for your weapon. This weapon isn't ordinary. If you get a sword, you may discover that, with the click of a button, you can cause the blade to heat up. Or, you may get a gun which shoots bullets that are automatically attracted to their intended target. Your weapon is bound to you, and will return to you in a few seconds if you lose it.


EXAMPLE
Sue, the vassal of Arceus: Sue's powers are extremely limited and extend to telepathy and teleportation (no risk powers) and creation of matter (risk power). Her weapon is a bracelet which resembles Arceus' 'ring'; this can absorb weak levels of energy and transform it into projectiles. The bracelet loses stored energy if it isn't used two hours after being absorbed. It cannot absorb energy-based attacks like Hyper Beam, but it can absorb energy generated by attacks, such as flames resulting from Fire-type attacks.







***


THE WORLD AROUND US
The world we're playing in is our world, plus the five mainstream regions from the Pokemon world (Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, Unova). The storyline of the games has taken place in the same years the game was released: however, Black 2 and White 2's storyline has not yet occurred.


Kanto and Johto are located near Japan, and considered part of Asia.


Hoenn is an island in the Pacific, and is considered to be part of South America.


Sinnoh is a Northern European island, settled by Europeans (mainly the British and French).


Unova is on the East Coast of the US and considered a separate country, part of North America.


As for the weather, Mewtwo and his Separatists have the three legendary beasts (Entei, Raikou and Suicune), on their side. These three use their powers to alter the weather of the world: Entei causes mountains to turn into volcanoes, Raikou causes gigantic storms, and Suicune turns sunshine into rain and causes rivers to flood or become polluted.


Most 'ordinary' humans are taking refuge in shelters wherever they can. Darkrai, who is also a Separatist, enters the dreams of some survivors and causes them to lose their will to live slowly. Various wild Pokemon roam the flooded, storm-struck, and abandoned streets of the world.

RULES OF THE GAME + FAQ


While playing, filling up your sign-up sheet, and commenting on posts, please make the effort to use proper English. I prefer the UK spellings (grey and not gray, colour and not color), but it's entirely your choice which ones you choose. Just make sure you don't spell 'grey'/'gray' as 'grre'.
No godmodding.
A small amount of bunnying is allowed. For example, you can say that when you battle another character's Pokemon, their Pokemon stumbled backwards. However, you cannot say that you OHKO'ed them. Please note: PVP battles aren't going to be a 'regular thing'.
On the subject of Pokemon, you are allowed to have a maximum of six Pokemon. One can be owned prior to the events of the story, and the rest caught along the way. If you want to, you can choose to not have any Pokemon. When you submit your profile, include ONLY INCLUDE THE ONE POKEMON YOU WILL HAVE IN THE BEGINNING. If you're going to catch more, you'll have to fill in a sign up profile (ONLY THE POKEMON SECTION) and PM it to me, saying something like 'Hey, I want to catch this Pokemon'. Same applies if your Pokemon evolves: send me a PM saying 'My Pokemon is evolving. (insert evolved-form's profile)', however there's no need to update the original SU post.
This RPG is rated PG-13/T. Violence is allowed to a limit (blood is fine but no gore), a little swearing (a sh*t here and there) is fine, nothing else.
Please post a minimum of twice a week.
All other Serebii.net forum rules and RPG forum rules apply.




The following Pokemon cannot be caught (refer rule four) or be your host legendaries:


The pseudo-legendaries (Dragonite, Tyranitar, Salamence, Metagross, Garchomp, Hydreigon) and their evolutionary lines
Mew* and Mewtwo [Separatist]
Entei, Raikou and Suicune [Separatist]
Celebi*
Darkrai [Separatist]
Phione** and Manaphy**
Arceus
Genesect [Separatist]




* Does not take sides.
** Not considered an Entity.

miles0624
24th November 2012, 6:53 PM
Well, Miles0624, and I think I have played with all of you. But here is a little bit about me.

Started on Serebii about seven years ago, and have about six years of RPG experience. I have five character profiles: Miles(Serious/outsider), Rick (Moderater/ funloving), Edward (the young person), Destiny (The female), and Jacob (The swampert for pure pokemon RPGs.). My first RPGs were Essence of the Elementals and Shadow Pokemon war 2 and 3. Those were done back in 2006 and introduced me to this world. After those, I did about ten others until 2009. I don't know what happened, but I just stopped Serebii altogether. In 2011, one of my RPG friends got me back on Serebii after reading Essence of the Elementals. He got the whole gang back together to try and do it again. After all, we all should have more experience under our belt. In the end, we just left the RPG and decided to keep our memories.

After that, I met Mon ad Flame Mistress while doing project Legends v2 back in November last year. Also, I think we all were on the legendary Island RPG. I have done four other Rpgs since then as well. Now, I have a new computer and have to rewrite all my profiles. (Previous one crashed.) Ok.

Strengths:
1. Has very good ideas.
2. Can make my characters easily connectable.
3. Very good at making battle scenarios.

Weakness:
1. May be hard to follow. Those who have worked with me know that the more you read my writing, the better you are at understanding me. Sometimes I may skip a connection, which would be great if you called me out on. It may make the perfect sense to me, but if you guys don't see that connection, just tell me.
2. Bunnying: I had a bunnying problem, which I resolved by not touching other people's characters at all. Thus, you may see me just do a full conversation without you character responding because I didn't want to mess with them.
3. Comedy. I don't even try anymore.

Oh yeah, that was last season. I was the winner. ;D I'm not doing very well this season though, especially since I joined on the fourth week and I'm still getting used to things.

I don't have an RPG profile (actually, apparently I do, but it's really outdated by now), but I did take a break from RPing for a few months before joining this and another RPG (Aradis Chronicles). You'll probably see me around in the Games, Misc, GPD, Shippers' Community, Nintendo Discussion, and this forum. As well as with Pokémon, I'm also obsessed with Professor Layton and, more recently, Inazuma Eleven. Also, I am a girl. So that's me in a nutshell.

Oh, and, uh, Miles, weren't you Denied?

Congratulations. =P I was the Vileplume that got eliminated quickly.

I don't have an RPG profile either, and I think my first RPG was the first Return of Team Galactic...? Then I think I went over to Gijinka Academy and Project Legends where I met Mon and miles. Then I took a break for a few months, making random rounds here and there, and now here I am.

I used to frequent the Games and Fanart Shops forums but I've long since disappeared from there. I think I'm pretty content with just staying around right here. Some of my interests, aside from Pokemon, include Homestuck and Touhou. It's nice to meet you all (and in some cases, again!)

Yeah, back when istorm was still on here. I miss him...... Good times. Didn't you also have Uxie is PL2? or was that Mon.

I just read through everyone's profile, but it seems that we aren't the talkative sort. Everyone but Tyler seems like an introvert. Miles is like in the middle of the line. Boy we sure do love black.

So how soon are we supposed to me our host entity. It says immediately, but also states it is one of our objectives.

Edit: Also, can we be having the Darkrai dreams too?

That was intentional. :P He'll probably get on everyone's nerves. :p

24th November 2012, 10:16 PM
Evelina used to be happier when she was younger, but as she grew up and things changed (including the relationship between herself and her foster siblings), she began to take a more negative look on life, and eventually she just thought "screw this world" and became the introvert she is today. =p

I'm also drawing Evelina. Hopefully I'll be able to finish and upload it by tomorrow evening.

SoulMuse
24th November 2012, 10:26 PM
Well since we seem to be doing introductions, I have been around Serebii RPing for a bit now....not really sure when I started. My RP profile is there...I think.

Tyler's in my sig if you want to know what he looks like. (The one on the end.) :P

Be warned, Tyler will be giving everyone (seemingly) insulting nicknames. So far I have.

Ben: Cheesehead (He made this too easy. :p)
Evelina: EVILina (See what I did there? :P I capitalized it if you don't.)

Now, I need to come up with ones for the rest. :3 (Except Ice, there's no way to make that insulting.)

As for character designs, I guess I could draw Jolene later, or something. Or at least take from the sketches I did while I was designing her, eheh.

Azran Flame
25th November 2012, 12:09 AM
EVILina is actually pretty good, you know. Not that Evelina will really care, since she doesn't mind being evil (not that she is, mind you) but still.

Is it weird that the first thing I thought of after reading through Jolene's background was Fransizka von Karma? =p

By day four, everyone is going to want to kill Tyler. By the way, if this is the modern world, does that mean we have airplanes? So no more riding flying Pokemon to get to a far away place. I would draw my character, but I suck at art. Really, really bad. But I think I explained him graphically enough. (If not, I can make it as graphic as it needs to be.)

Ok, I am so ready to start...... LET'S DO THIS!!!! It's the end of the world for pete's sake if you believe in the Mayans. =p

Random fact: I loosely based Tyler of Gold from the Pokemon Special/Adventures manga, if anyone here has read that manga.

Tyler can fly himself, who needs an airplane, or a Pokemon. :P

Evelina will be flying over to Washington D.C. (no she isn't going to take a boat across the Atlantic Ocean, people), assuming that aeroplanes do exist.

Deadly.Braviary
25th November 2012, 10:12 AM
Gah. I'm late, as usual. I see everyone's made friends. And yes, aeroplanes DO exist. This is in the not-so-distant future (next month, actually). Also, Darkrai may come around once in a while: he may even possess Pokemon in their sleep and cause them to attack us.

So, anyway, I'm DeadlyBraviary. Just ignore the infinity symbol at the end - that was a terrible idea, and it should be gone once the mods implement name changes. I'm more of a fanfiction writer than an RPer, but that doesn't mean I have no experience with RPGs.

Finally, the RPG thread should be up in a few minutes (it's 2:45 where I'm at right now). We'll pick up right after our character has met Sue Cra at their meeting place and swallowed their orb (where the RPG summary ends). As we begin, Sue/Arceus will tell us that being in several places at once is taking a toll on her abilities, and she'll then tell us where to find our host entity right before vanishing. So get there and look around, and you'll see your host Entity. After a bit of chitchat, they'll ask you to prove yourself as a vassal (your post should end right there). Please tell me if I'm not giving you enough creative freedom, because I don't want to be a dictator.

The criteria for choosing the place you'll find your host Entity are: 1) It should be related to the type or concept, for example, a Water-type host Entity in an aquarium is more believable than, say, a Ghost-type in a modern high-rise building. 2) The place should be at a landmark, for example, the White House (NOT RECOMMENDED) or a graveyard. I claim the Air and Space Museum, because Deoxys, of course, comes from space.

Go ahead and post!

EDIT: Cheesehead? How poetic =P
Off-topic, does anyone read the Mortal Instruments here?

EDIT 2: Use this link (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Washington,_DC#Culture) to help you decide a place to find your host Entity. Of course, you could always invent one ...

EDIT 3: Here's the RP thread (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?589799-Pok%E9mon-2012-%DCberload-PG-13).

25th November 2012, 1:01 PM
Oh my god, Washington D.C.'s motto is "Justice for All" =D

Guys, I claim Washington National Cathedral (http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Washington_National_Cathedral) as my location of choice (not much freedom you have with Uxie =S). So, should I have Evelina meet Sue in a place like a dark alleyway or something like that?

Monster Guy
25th November 2012, 1:38 PM

[SIZE=1]Guys, I claim Washington National Cathedral (http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Washington_National_Cathedral) as my location of choice (not much freedom you have with Uxie =S). So, should I have Evelina meet Sue in a place like a dark alleyway or something like that?

Yeah, Uxie is .... a bit tough to figure out. And you can meet Sue wherever you want ...

Uxie's easy. I would've gone with a Library. (It's the being of Knowledge) If I had used Victini, I would've gone with a Sports Arena, or a Casino. (The Victory thing.) Victini would be even easier if this were New York. :P

Wait a second, I just noticed we could use Landmarks! (I thought we couldn't. It was early in the morning, and I misread that post. >_>) Then I don't need to make up a place.

Dibs on The Washington Monument! (In every game Rayquaza appears in, it's always in a tower of some sort.)

Ha, I see everyone's posted except for miles and SoulMuse. If they're reading this, then guys, you can actually take this at your own pace. As long as your character is alone, than you can post whenever you like as long as it's once a week or more often. However, we'll need to co-ordinate our posts a bit while we're in groups. For now, this basically means, we don't have to wait for miles and SoulMuse because it's not gonna drag us backwards if they don't post. We can just go ahead.

I'll get my next post up in a while. For those of you who've just met your host Entity, you'll be proving yourself in a set of three tests over a few posts. The first test is Power: you'll need to battle a ton of weak but modded* Pokemon that your Entity has summoned up. For example, Deoxys is going to whip up a whole busload of rapidly-evolving Ralts. Most of them might teleport away, but some will evolve unexpectedly into Kirlia, and then into Gardevoir/Gallade. The aim of this test is not to win, because beating twenty or so of these modded Pokemon is nigh impossible, but to communicate effectively with your Pokemon and prove that you can battle effectively. Once you've completed the test, your host Entity will consider on how you've done. I'll send you a PM containing the specifics of the next test once I see this post up.

I have to do that in ASB, and Pokemon Royal Rumble as well. It's become a habit...

FB requires you to boldface your own moves. I bolded the opponents moves since there wasn't another trainer announcing what attacks they were using.

When battling another player, I will boldface my moves so they can see what attacks I'm using.

Hey guys ... Sorry about not being here, but I've been busy with my exam results coming soon and playing Dishonored (which is in no way related to the next test) and what not ...

So, anyway, I have news. WE ARE NOT ABANDONING THIS RP. And SM is officially booted - it's been almost, what, three weeks? And I am here with cookies! Or in other words, more plot.

The second test will be a test of Strategy. Essentially, it's a one-sided stealth challenge, and the odds are most definitely not in your favour. You will be put in a large area of some sort, slightly relating to your host Entity's type (a graveyard for Giratina, a stone castle for Regirock, an underground power station for Zapdos ... get creative!), filled with trainers. Your task is to get from point A to point B, without being seen or leaving any traces of yourself behind. If you are seen by a trainer, YOU MUST BATTLE THEIR RIDICULOUSLY OVERPOWERED UBERPOKEMON, for example, Slaking or Hydreigon. Which will most likely lead to a OHKO. Oh, and you're allowed to use your Pokemon's powers to help you.

I'm giving you a lot of scope for improvisation here, so go ahead and show me what you got. This can turn out either insanely suspenseful or dull and lifeless. It's your choice!

Evelina will be given a map of the maze, which will show what the maze will be like when it's flat with all the secret passageways (though not how they're connected) and trainers, not round. She'll have to find Uxie, whose location is also marked on the map. Good idea? Yes, I borrowed this from Professor Layton, like I borrowed from Inazuma Eleven in the first test, but... still!

Same with me, it died before most of us even left the building! Sometimes GMs are to busy, or it just is to boring and doesn't want anyone to participate anymore.

Yeah, because with the world ending, I don't think they'd have time to torture test their vassal anyway.

What are you talking about? The world did end. We were attacked and killed by vicious zombies. xD Did you know Heaven has Wi-Fi? That's how I'm posting this from the afterlife. xD

Really? Heaven looks a lot like my house...

More to the topic, yeah, the tests did kinda kill it. I think we should only use one test, and just get going with the rest of the story.

I agree - one test was okay, but I really can't bring myself to write up another one.

Agreed. The test were overkill, (but I did have fun writing this second one. V.V I was transported to a Valconao. I am still interested and just waiting on someone to post so I know where we are going with this. Also, do we still have the powers now are no. You said we could use it during the second exam.

All right so we have three options currently:

1. Put it on hiatus and continue with the second test, and then get into the story
2. Put it on hiatus and continue with the story (ignoring the second test)
3. Shut it down

We'll be taking an informal vote here, which will be closed tomorrow afternoon in my time zone (around 6:30 GMT).

Well, I'm back, so that's the end of the hiatus. And so we will continue with the awesomeness that is plot!

All right, no editing of posts needed for this. I just need a short post from everyone to confirm you're all still with me (and the game). Your host Entity will begin to explain the second test, but then suddenly alert you that some of the Separatists have found you. From there, your host Entity will dissipate into cosmic dust, as explained in the first post of every thread relating to this game, part of which gives you some powers, and part of which forms your weapon. You then get to go battle some random rogue Pokemon (not a legendary, but rather a wild Pokemon up to some mischief), and use your power for the first time. Some of you can take this opportunity to catch a new Pokemon. In case you're doing so, though, you should FIRST refer to the rules section:


When you submit your profile, include ONLY INCLUDE THE ONE POKEMON YOU WILL HAVE IN THE BEGINNING. If you're going to catch more, you'll have to fill in a sign up profile (ONLY THE POKEMON SECTION) and PM it to me, saying something like 'Hey, I want to catch this Pokemon', as well as add it to your original SU profile. Same applies if your Pokemon evolves: send me a PM saying 'My Pokemon is evolving. (insert evolved-form's profile)', however there's no need to update the original SU post.

Do this before you submit your post, so that you can change it if so required.

Once everyone has posted, I'll be back with what to do next.

EDIT: Just found a contradiction in the rules.

EDIT 2: My post is up! Feel free to go ahead and begin your battle as well if you want to; I wasn't in the mood to write a battle scene just yet, so I decided I'd work it into a second post (giving me more time to show off Ben's powers). And FYI, the Darkrai-possessed Pokemon are zombie stand-ins, because this is Resident Evil with Pokemon the apocalypse. Once everyone has finished their battles, I'll tell you all how to proceed. This is a rough idea I have of how we're going to progress. After defeating the wild Pokemon, we'll somehow end up having to escort survivors to a bunker, a sort of safehouse where other mundane humans live in fear of the bad guys. I'll think up a plot device for that, as well as for how we're going to end up meeting each other (which will happen after reaching the bunker). Any suggestions?

I got one. Since Tyler is flying right now, I can have him bump into one of the others. I'm pretty sure a kid fighting off zombified wild Pokemon is visible from the air. :P I'm craving some character interaction right now.

Alright then, who wants to meet up with Tyler? We're all going to meet in groups first (two pairs and one group of three), how does that sound?

PS: They're not zombified, per se. They're standing in because we don't have zombies [s]yet[s].

Speaking of reactions to Sophia-Being-Only-Girl-Unless-Flame-Comes-Back, I need to think of how she'll react... either

a. get angry
b. laugh
c. shrug it of like that's normal
d. freak out
e. sing JB

I don't know if it's rude of me to ask this, but would you mind if I adopted the idea, and remade this RPG in the future?

Not at all! Goo ahead, you have my blessing. In fact, contact me if/when you do, and I'll see if I'm free enough to join around then.

Only problem is, 2012 is over and it's not comin' back. So you'll have to find a new apocalyptic prophecy XD
