Memento Mori: Even the Pure Fall
Rated PG-15 for Language, Violence, and other Miscellaneous things somebody is bound to post that is inappropriate for children.
Welcome to the Sign-Ups for Memento Mori: Even the Pure Fall! This is the sequel to Memento Mori: Even Gods Must Die. If you want to read what happened in EGMD, read this. If you do not want to read it, it will be explained in the plot summary for this RP. But first, the rules.
1. Although it doesn't need put, standard forum rules apply.
2.You are allowed NO MORE than two characters.
3.Godmodding or Powerplaying are allowed on occasion, but if you do it too much, I will have your characters legs cut off. I am not even joking about that.
4. Bunnying is not allowed unless other player agrees.
5. Occasional Spelling/Grammar mistakes are fine, but too many and we'll have a little talk. I will make some exceptions to this if it is part of your style(such as with mine, I capitalize important words that I want to bring attention to, that would not normally be capitalized).
I will add more if I, or the other GMs, think of any.
Now for the part you've been waiting for!
Last time in Memento Mori:
Long ago, in the beginning, Arceus created the Universe. Centuries later humanity would find itself under siege from an unknown adversary, and Arceus would commission the titan, Regigigas to fashion a sword made from the same material used to create the other Regis. Once Regigigas completed this task, Arceus blessed the sword and gave it to a mortal man – Thermidore. Thermidore fought alongside Arceus and the Regis to vanquish this foe. They were victorious, and Thermidore founded The Order. They would stand forever vigilant and wait for the next time the world was threatened.
Millennia later Arceus would find himself threatened by Giratina, the old god. Giratina manifested itself as an old man named Gin and deceived a group of young people into helping to kill Arceus. After traveling back in time, the group acquired the Azure Flute and fought with the Azure Cult who tried to get it back. Many of the group perished during the struggle, but a few managed to make it back to the future. They then had to endure many tough trails on the Earthly and Heavenly Stairs to reach Arceus.
Once they did, however, Giratina revealed its true nature, killing Arceus and taking his place. Those who helped the old god would be spared, by being sent to the Reverse World as Giratina recreated the universe in its image. The group managed to find Giratina and kill him. This left the universe in an ever deteriorating state. They eventually found a staff which was also forged by Regigigas; it was made from shards from Arceus’ plates, and was named Titan's Will. They fought amongst themselves before one eventually conquered the rest and used the staff to recreate the world as it was before Giratina tricked them all. This includes resurrecting Arceus, AND Giratina. For without the later there would be no balance. Arceus now keeps a watchful eye on Giratina so that it will never happen again.
A few months later…
The Leader of The Order, the Master, acquired Titan’s Will and the Gigas Espada, and now seeks an old Order device called the Infinite Devil Machine. The IDM is a machine said to have been created by Regigigas as well, and can be used to create matter itself. The leader of your branch of The Order, the Lord Captain, will not allow this. He came before the Master and pleaded with him not to pursue the IDM, but his plea fell upon deft ears. The Lord Captain returned to his fortress in northern Johto to continue his duties.
However fearing the LC’s interference, the Master had the rest of The Order besiege your fortress on the day you were to be knighted. His men took you, the other would-be knights, and a few others involved in your ceremony away and had you thrown in prison. The Master thought that this act would keep the Lord Captain at bay, but he was so very, very wrong. The Lord Captain broke your branch of The Order off from the others and became a separate entity. Declaring war upon The Order, the newly formed “Knights of the Threshold” will attempt to free you. The Lord Captain sends the only warship they have to a small island south of Sinnoh. On this island is the castle of The Order, where you are held. On board the ship, the Judge’s Steel, are KofT troops and Pokémon Hunters who were contracted as mercenaries.
You sit in your cell, as days pass by. You get to know some of the other people in the prison. Some are Pokémon Trainers. Some are Pokémon Rangers. Some are even Aura Guardians. It turns out that they too were thrown into this prison for fear of what they might do to stop the Master.
But then, somewhere in the dark, a light or just a spark…
That is the general idea, but note that I was a little vague on a few details for story reasons. Now for the SUs. I have came up with six different character ideas you can choose from, or create you own. Every one will be the same in regards to story. No one character will be more important than another.
Knight of the Threshold – (KofT)
-After the Master pulled his bold move to imprison those who would stand against him, one of The Order’s branches broke off and started calling themselves the Knights of the Threshold. Their goal is to stop the Master.
-If you play as one you start off in a prison cell with most of the other players.
Equipment/Pokémon: One melee weapon, three Pokémon.
Knight of The Order –(KofO)
-Knights of The Order stayed loyal to the Master and will assist him in activating the IDM.
-If you play as one, you are not captured, but instead will start off fighting the KofT in the castle’s halls.
Equipment/Pokémon: One melee weapon, three Pokémon.
Pokémon Trainer –
-Pokémon Trainers travel the world seeking to become Pokémon Masters. Obviously.
-If you play as one you were captured for a reason up to you, so long as it makes sense. You start off in a cell as well.
Equipment/Pokémon: Six Pokémon, nothing special
Pokémon Ranger –
-Pokémon Rangers do good acts… and stuff. They can use their capture stylers to temporarily use a Pokémon’s skills to aid them. Sorry about the bad description, but I don’t really know how to describe them, and we all know what they are.
-If you play as one, you were captured because you got in the The Order’s way somehow; make sure the reason makes sense. You start off in a cell.
Equipment/Pokémon: One Pokémon, capture styler, usual abilities of a Ranger
Aura Guardian – (Limit 3)
-Like Sir Aaron, these noble warriors can control the power of Aura. They have many special powers and can use Aura to help them in most situations. There are very few left in this world…
-If you play as one you were captured because The Order fears that which they cannot control, and so they hunt you. You start off in a cell.
Pokémon/Powers: One Pokémon, power of Aura. (Those who do not know what an Aura Guardian is, read this. Ability to read minds/Actions is not allowed, and Telepathy can only be used between Guardians. I will only allow three AGs, and watch your characters closely. Godmodding will be regulated, but not completely banned.)
Pokémon Hunter – (Limit 3)
-Pokémon Hunters hunt rare Pokémon for clients who pay enough for them, going so far as to steal them if necessary, and by using any means. Due to the nature of their work they may have encountered, and caught a legend. Due to Interpol agents like Looker, they haven’t received much work as of late and have had to resort to being mercenaries.
-If you play as one you start off by breaking into the prison to free the captured ones. After the prologue you get to choose your side, but during the beginning, you are KofT.
Equipment/Pokémon: One regular Pokémon, one medium sized or smaller legend (Optional) and one ranged weapon. (Make sure that your SU with the legendary Pokemon is GOOD! I want a detailed story on how you met them. No "He just happens to be here" kind of stuff.)
Come up with your own ideas! But be warned, I will be kind of strict as to balance out your character.
Note: Anyone can change allegiance after the Prologue, but not what kind of character you are. There are so many choices so that there is diversity, better interactions, and an even more epic story.
Character Type: (Trainer, Knight, Ranger, etc.)
Knightly name: (only if Order or Threshold)
Age: (If either type of knight, must be over 15. Hunters must be 18+, and everyone else can be any age.)
History: (Including what you did to make The Order mad at you/got contracted by KofT/why you sided with The Order)
Weapons/Equipment: (Be realistic. By that I mean don't give yourself rocket launchers or Gatling guns.)
The following must be done for every Pokémon owned.
Pokemon's Nickname: (If any/Optional)
Pokemon's History: (For Hunter's legendaries. How did your Hunter meet the legend? Why is it with you still? Or, if a non-hunter wants to do this that is fine too.)
Pokémon’s Appearance (Regular? Shiny? Wearing clothing?):
Any questions? Also, tell me how I did with organizing this post. I am good at writing actual RP posts, but writing this Sign-Up got me a little flustered.
Lawmaster - Aura Guardian
Niihyl - Pokemon Hunter
Universe Chaser - Pokemon Ranger
Guywhoiam - Sir Guy - KofT
