    Default Pokemon: Crystal Chronicles

    Signups are open!

    It's been awhile since I RPG'd, so I took some time to consider what needed to change to create a new RPG. So you might consider this an experiment to see how well it works. Vets and Newbies, I encourage you both to join.

    Pokemon: Crystal Chronicles
    Rated PG-13 for possible violence, swearing, and alcoholic references.
    (It is the medival times after all)

    Nobody is quite sure how it happened. It came so fast, so sudden. There was no time to prepare for it.

    In a single instant, Pokemon vanished from the earth. The creatures we all know and love disappeared, leaving no trace behind. Trainers were baffled as they opened their Poke Balls to find nothing inside. The world went into absolute chaos.

    If that had been it, perhaps human kind could have continued, but only 3 days after the loss of Pokemon, technology shut down. Not "turned off". Shut down. The human race made many attempts to bring it back, but it simply would not work. That same day, they appeared. Dark Pokemon. At first, people were overjoyed that the creatures had returned, and many tried to make friends, but they were mercilessly torn apart by the savage beasts.

    Humans the world over were killed as the Pokemon raided villages and cities, forcing humans (who had used Pokemon for self-defense until then) to create weapons. With these, humans managed, and although the great cities of yesteryear were destroyed, the human race lives on.

    Timeskip, around five hundred years into the future.

    Humankind has managed to eke out a living by the discovery of Poke'cite. A strange material, not unlike evolutionary stones, Poke'cite can be carved with various formulas to provide running water, fire, and even some electricity (although only loony inventors dream of using it as a power source). With the discovery of the barrier formula, towns could create barriers to protect them from Dark Pokemon attacks. Weapons could be given smaller amounts to give humans the ability to use Pokemon attacks, giving them more power in combat.

    All of the regions have formed their own kingdoms, and Kanto is no exception. The current ruler, Queen Carmen, is a kind and benevolent woman, and she sees to it that her people are kept happy. Her eight knights pretect the land, seeing to it that there are none oppressed.

    Still, the threat of the Dark Pokemon is ever-present, and there aren't enough Barriers to go around. There is the added fact that not all people are good at heart as the Queen...




    *********


    Who are you? Who knows? Perhaps you are a farmer, tending your fields. Maybe you joined the ranks of the Kanto Knights. Perhaps, even, you are just a simple man in a peaceful world. Maybe you're even a thief, stealing Poke'cite for your own use. For one reason or another, you are among the lucky few who are in the possession of Poke'cite.



    --INFORMATION--


    Poke'cite

    Poke'cite are crystals that can be found anywhere in the world that grant abilities similar to Pokemon moves. By placing Poke'cite into a certain crest to act as a conduit, a person can pull out the power inside. This has made it possible for desert towns to have running water, grant electrical power (in limited supply), and even help to generate barriers to keep the towns safe from attacks. The crest can be anything; Broadswords, Bows, Staffs, any outcome is possible. However, the one thing they have in common is that they all must have a crest on them somewhere.

    Using the abilities stored in weapons requires energy- as long as an ability is in use, it will drain yours. Overdo it, and you'll pass out, or even die. As you practice more and more, your stamina will increase, allowing you to perform attacks more often. Note that more powerful Poke'cite drains more energy (ie., Overheat will drain far more energy than Ember).

    Poke'cite comes in 16 different colors, each representing the element of the attack- Fire is Red, Water is Blue, Grass is Green, etc.- and appears to be similar to ore in it's original state. A Poke'cite specialist needs to refine the ore, carving a formula into it before it can be used. Keep in mind that some types of Poke'cite are rarer than others (ie., it will be easy to find normal Poke'cite, but Dragon and Ghost Poke'cite will be very difficult to obtain.

    Pokecite Colors:
    Fire- Bright Red
    Water- Dark Blue
    Grass- Forest Green
    Electric- Bright Yellow
    Ground- Ruby
    Flying- Sky Blue
    Bug- Bright Green
    Ice- Cyan
    Rock- Grey
    Ghost- Purple
    Dragon- Orange
    Steel- Silver
    Fighting- Brown
    Poison- Bright Purple
    Normal- White
    Dark- Black
    Psychic- Pink


    Weapons

    Since they don't have Pokemon to protect them anymore, any technology was set back several hundred years, humans have returned to refining metals and wood to make weapons for protection. A skilled blacksmith can mold a crest in the weapon, allowing the owner to insert Poke'cite for use in combat.


    The Knights of Kanto

    Also known as The Kanto Knights, they are the protectors of Kanto, as well as the most powerful fighters in all the land. Each has a castle in one of 8 locations (the old sites of the 8 Pokemon Gyms) where they train and watch over the nearby citizens. In order to become a Knight, you must enter into the intense training of the knights, and reach a certain level of power. All Knights are extremely strong, and have access to a lot of Poke'cite. However, you may not play as one of them. You may, however, be in training under one of them as a low-ranked soldier.



    QUESTIONS


    Can I have a Pokemon?

    No. Pokemon vanished in the Big Disaster around a hundred years ago. This includes Pokemon that were in Pokeballs, owned by trainers, and wild ones. The legendaries have not been seen since, so it is assumed they are gone as well.


    Can I use more than one Poke'cite at a time?

    Yes, within reason. There are some limits to this, however- if you intend to do so, you are essentially creating a new attack, so you need to get this okay'd in advance with me. It will also require Poke'cite of the 2 moves to be in the same weapon, meaning your weapon has been upgraded to have multiple slots, and you will drain a large amount of energy using the attack due to the fact that you are using two at once.


    Hey, you mentioned Magic! Where are the spells?!

    "Mages" are people who specialize in using Special attacks, as opposed to Physical. Such people are able to attack from a range, penetrating tough defenses that warriors cannot crack, but have trouble against creatures with higher resistance to Special attacks. Keep in mind that Special attacks, due to the advantage of range and penetration, take time to cast.


    I want X Poke'cite. Can I have it?

    No. Poke'cites are decided based on the size, color, and formula of the Poke'cite, so in order to obtain a Poke'cite, you will have to A) Defeat someone with that Poke'cite and manage to take it from them without breaking the Poke'Cite; B) Find the ore you need, take it to a Poke'cite Specialist, and get a formula carved; or C) Get veeeeery lucky and be given the Poke'cite by an NPC.


    I want to have X number of attacks.

    You start with 1 Pokecite and a weapon with ONE slot in it. You may purchase/find other weapons and Poke'cite later, and as a result, gain more attacks, but at the beginning, you get ONE.

    I don't see a character signup for you. What's YOUR role?

    Since the plot of this story is decided by you, the players, I will be in a "Reactive GM" position. This means that depending on choices made by the players, certain events will happen. I will be controlling the NPCs, as well as illustrating various events that occur, such as finding weapons and Poke'cite, trying to purchase various items from a shopkeeper, etc.


    The Kingdom of Kanto's Locations

    -Celadon Castle Town-
    Home to the Queen and her Castle, Celadon is the capital of the Kingdom. Ruled over by Queen Carmen, Celadon is a very peaceful place, named after the serene beauty of the plants that grow outside the town's great walls. The entire city is kept inside a massive stone wall, surrounded by a moat to prevent a seige. Celadon Castle Town is always bustling with activity, including the new Game Corner. Taverns and Inns are abundant to handle the large amount of people who travel through. There is a barrier generator located in the castle, supposedly in the highest tower, which is repelling Dark Pokemon away.

    Notable Locations:
    Castle Kanto- Home to the Queens. A very regal place located in the center of town. It is the most massive structure in Kanto, made to defend the ruler at all costs.
    Celadon Castle- A smaller, but equally important castle on the southwestern side of town. It is the home of Lady Fern of the Kanto Knights, a specialist in plants and herbs. She runs a small infirmary nearby.
    Game Corner- A gambling house for drunkards. Fortunes are made and lost here.
    Celadon Market- The largest market in Kanto. Merchants from all over gather to sell thier goods, each trying to outdo the others. It is rumored that you can find just about anything here.


    -Saffron Junction-
    Located directly in the center of 3 major cities (and the swamp), Saffron Junction is the perfect place to spread ideas and technology, second only to Celadon economically. Lady Mana watches over the city with a clairvoyant mind, protecting the citizens from any who would cause harm, resulting in a suprisingly safe city. This is the best place for scholars, who usually work at the local scriptorium.

    Notable Locations:
    Saffron Castle- Home to Lady Mana of the Knights. The castle is the largest building in town, whose center tower is incredibly high. it is in this tower that Lady Mana herself sleeps.
    Saffron Dojo- A local fighting Dojo run by Chan Lee. It is rumored he was to become a Knight of Kanto, but for some reason, he was rejected and Lady Mana was chosen instead. This still ticks him off, but he runs a dojo here, hoping one of his students will become a Knight.
    Scriptorium- Home to the scholars of Kanto. All of the kingdom's records are kept here, as well as a large number of skilled Mages.


    -Fushia Village-
    South of Celadon and Southwest of Vermillion sits a small but growing village. The town is supposedly founded by a ninja clan, a rumor the town's leader, Sir Attor denies vehemenetly. However, the town has taken on that vibe, blending eastern styles into the culture of Kanto.

    Notable Locations:
    Fushia Castle- Down near the sea, built into the firm bedrock is Fushia Castle, home of Sir Attor of the Knights of Kanto. Many people are not pleased by its presence, which contradicts with the surrounding areas. Sir Attor specializes in alchemy, particularly the creation of poisons and anti-venoms.
    Fushia Shrines- Devoted to the departed, Fushia honors their dead with a shrine. People also burn incense here to try and appeal to the God Pokemon, Arceus, as well as other legendaries.


    -Port Vermillion-
    Located on the Sea, Port Vermillion Hosts a wide number of docks and ships fully fit to set sail. Fishermen, as well as sailors and explorers frequent this area, sailing boats all across the known world. The townspeople are very loyal and affectionate to thier ruler, Admiral Tyrell of the Knights of Kanto. This town also conducts almost as many rumors as the Castle Town.

    Notable Locations:
    Vermillion Castle- Home to Admiral Tyrell, on the western penninsula of the area. It overlooks the sea, and has a lightning rod on top, drawing the strikes to it. Admiral Tyrell often allows inventors from all over to use this electricty to power inventions, especially if they would help his village.
    Vermillion Docks- Hundreds of ships, large and small, anchor here. If you need a ride across the water, you'll find it here.
    The Great Tunnel- Dug by Diglett under orders from the last queen, the Great Tunnel is a project that is attempting to create a link between Vermillion and Pewter via an underground tunnel. Although it is incomplete, it could serve as a passageway or an escape route one day.


    -Lavender Swamps-
    Few have entered. None have returned.


    -Pewter Valley-
    Located between 2 great mountain regions, Pewter Valley is a great center of mining and timber. Lead by Sir Slate of the Knights of Kanto, its villagers have the reputation of rough-and-tumble wild men. It is a fairly new region, but it sees growth and new sights with each passing day. It is the only major city without a barrier, so it experiences frequent attacks.

    Notable Locations:
    Pewter Castle- Although still under construction, Pewter Castle is made from solid stones, placed high upon a mountain's peak to make raids difficult. Of course, it also makes going to and from Sir Slate's home a massive pain in the legs. However, the lumbermen, who do it everyday, have little problem in climbing it. This makes escaping a raid easier for them, and harrowing for thier enemies.
    Lumber Camp- Home of the Lumbermen, unless in times of raid. When they aren't cutting down trees for timber, they can be heard singing with suprisingly strong harmony.
    Builder's Camp- The builder's home, unless in times of raid. The builders are a surly lot, but they appreciate the few women who enter the camp (and they show it very vocally).


    -Cerulean Coast-
    Next to Vermillion, the second aquatic powerhouse in Kanto. The Cerulean Coast is a smaller village, but with more emphasis on fishing than exploring and naval warfare. The city is considered to be the perfect place for lovers, and is a very romantic village, but the tall cliff nearby has sharp, pointy rocks that ships can crash into in the fog. The resident Knight, Lady Nautia, is working on a plan to solve that problem.

    Notable Locations:
    Cerulean Castle- Home to Nautia, the Town's Kanto Knight. The Castle is quite beautiful, reflecting the romantic appearance of the area. Ironically enough, Lady Nautia is single.
    Cerulean Cove- Lots of little fishing vessels come here specifically to find the freshest and widest variety of fish in all of Kanto. Rather than a dock, boats are beached on the sand, as there are few storms and no larger boats.
    Cerulean Cliff- A tall cliff with a jagged edge on the seaside. It's very dangerous on a foggy cerulean night, where a boat can crash into it.


    -Cinnibar Island-
    Although not currently a part of the Kanto Kingdom, Sir Hakan of the Knights is attempting to set up negotiations with the local tribe. They are currently resistant, but the Knight and the local Shaman, Jeohash, have managed to keep a fight from breaking out. It is a beautiful island, tropical and bright, but the people are very uncivilized, living in mud huts in small villages. Due to the lack of a village, there is no barrier on the island.

    Notable Locations:
    Kanto Camp- Since they have yet to agree to becoming allies, a Castle has not been built. Therefore, a small camp is located near the northern shore, where Sir Hakan and his fellow diplomats are staying.
    Cinnibar Village- A Tribe of people who are far behind in terms of technology (even compared to the feudal Kanto), but are very in tune with the wild life, and even the earth itself. They don't like outsiders, but they are open to reasoning, only because of their leader, the Shaman Jeohash.
    Cinnibar Volcano- A massive volcano in the middle of the island. It has incredible destructive power, but is, for the most part, inactive. The warm temperatures and remaining lava do tend to attract certain fire types though.
    Seafoam Islands- A mysterious and uninhabited island. Nobody lives there, but the few who have visited have felt a strange presence...



    -Viridian Forest-
    A vast forest to the south of Pewter. Lots of bug and grass pokemon live here in harmony. The people here seem to have adpated to that, building houses only in spaces between the trees, rather than ripping trees out. Their leader, Sir Terrance, makes sure everyone follows those rules.

    Notable Locations:
    Viridian Castle- Not exactly the grandest of castles, but Sir Terrance's dirt-built Viridian Castle works with the very earth around it, and is propped up by the plants that have grown on it.
    The Forest- It's easy to get lost in Viridian Forest if you aren't a resident. Bring one with you every time you go- unless you want to lose yourself forever...


    -Pallet Fields-
    The city that once sat here gone, the old town of Pallet is now filled with fresh air and flowers. The only human here is Bonsai, a sage who lives alone. Nobody know how he's managed avoiding attacks from Dark Pokemon.

    Notable Locations:
    Bonsai's Hut- Home of Bonsai. Be warned if you plan to fight him, for it is rumored that even the Kanto Knights cannot beat him...


    -To the West...-
    Traveling far enough West will take you to Johto, but let's keep it in Kanto for this RPG.


    *******

    Rules:
    1.) Follow all Serebiiforums rules. Also those that pertain to this RPG section.
    2.) This is a PG-13 RPG, so a little blood and swearing is okay, nothing more than kissing for romance, and yes, you may drink booze.
    3.) To prove you read the rules, put "I read the rules" at the bottom of your post.
    4.) The threat of having your character killed off is here in this RPG. If I see a chance to kill off your character because you made a wrong descision, I'm going to take it. Make smart decisions. I WILL allow you to create a new character if yours is killed off.
    5.) I'm not having reservations. So don't ask.
    6.) Ignore rule 3.
    7.) I do not have a plotline for this RPG, only some basic events that will happen. Everything else that occurs will be based on the choices you make. If you want to be evil and assasinate the queen, feel free. Want to steal Poke'cite from others for your own gain? Go for it. If you want to attack a gazebo, you'll make me facepalm, but it's okay. Just remember that every action has a result.
    8.) While you must still meet the line limit, you do NOT need to make a full page post each time you do. I'd like to move the story at a decent pace, but without leaving people in the dust, so I encourage you to reach MODERATE post length.
    9.) There are a few things you may NOT play as. They are as follows: A high-ranking Knight, the leader of ANY town, from the Lavender Swamps/Pallet Fields, a Blacksmith or Poke'cite specialist.
    10.)Have fun!

    This looks incredible. I picked the right time to come out of my 2 1/2 year hiatus. An SU will be up soon, I just have one question (and it might just be me being stupid.). You mention wild pokemon living in the areas when describing Western Kanto. Are those Dark Pokemon, or have normal Pokemon begun to return and they're just no longer caught and trained?

    put up a reservation for me. this looks awsome. by the way, i don't think i caught this or not, but when you have the Poke'cite, can you use mulitple attacks of that type, or are you limited to one?

    A 'Poke-Cite" is one move- i.e a 'Water Gun' Poke-cite let's you use water gun.

    I really hate it when people make up interesting RPGs. Reserve. How will PvP combat be set up? Rules? Or will we just randomly back and forth for infinity and beyond with no outcome? And you said we can find Pokecite, and get a specialist to shape it an whatnot: do we just spawn random Pokecite if we want to?

    @Universe Chaser: Did I say something like that? *checks* Good eye. This is based off an old RPG I ran earlier, in which there were indeed wild Pokemon, but in this case, the wild Pokemon are not present. I'll have to edit that.

    @deltakurumiru4: There will be no reservations. Signup as you will. They will be open during the RPG. And yes, I believe I mentioned that the Poke'cite must have a formula carved into it in order to work properly, thus, you get ONE attack for each one you have equipped to your weapon. For example, if you possess a Poke'cite that allows you to use Ember, you cannot use the same Poke'cite to use Fire Fang.

    @Niihyl: Again, no reserves. PVP will indeed have a clear winner- I will act as referee to determine how well things go for either side. If a case of PVP does occur, both participants of the fight will PM me with their posts of how they choose to attack, and then I will post both responses with the referee's interpretation of how well it went for both sides. Remember that your character CAN die in PVP, though I will try to prevent it as GM.

    As for your other question, Poke'cite can indeed be found randomly (I'll make note of it in my posts when you do) because there is no one source. Some have found it by mining, others uncover them in tall grass, or even underwater. However, this is Poke'cite in it's raw form, and must be refined by a specialist in order to have a formula and be able to use attacks with it.

    It has also occurred to me that I did not include a list of Poke'cite colors. Allow me to include them now.

    Fire- Bright Red
    Water- Dark Blue
    Grass- Forest Green
    Electric- Bright Yellow
    Ground- Ruby
    Flying- Sky Blue
    Bug- Bright Green
    Ice- Cyan
    Rock- Grey
    Ghost- Purple
    Dragon- Orange
    Steel- Silver
    Fighting- Brown
    Poison- Bright Purple
    Normal- White
    Dark- Black
    Psychic- Pink

    Hi, I just have a few quick questions before I sign up.



    1. Can you have more than one Weapon? Like, say a Bow and a Sword?

    2A. Can there be Tools equipped with Poke'cite? Like a Pick with a Fighting Poke'cite for more effective mining?

    2B. If so, will we be allowed to mine in Pewter city or in Caves on the off chance that we might find Jewels/Metals to sell for money or be crafted into more Tools/Weapons by a Blacksmith?

    3. How will the formula be inscribed? Will we have to request the type of move we want? (Within limit of course, like no Hyper Beam Pokecite without proper Stamina/Weapon) Or will it be randomly determined by you through a special NPC or something?

    I'll try and answer everything clearly.

    1.) Yes, you may, but only ONE of them may have a Crest for Poke'cite. I would suggest that you do so with your primary weapon.

    2a.) Yes, provided you use the right Poke'cite. Although, do not count on being able to use Dig from the get-go.*

    2b.) Yes, although if you're looking for materials, it might be better to buy them- providing your character isn't easily conned. You'll find Poke'cite by mining as fast as you would by simply walking around.

    3.) The formula is inscribed by etching certain patterns into the gem, and can only be done by a specialist (No, you cannot play as a specialist). The move is random, but will be based on the size and color of the Poke'cite, as well as through random chance by a number generator. This keeps one person from sitting there the whole game and creating weapons/Poke'cite.

    *At this point, I figure it's worth mentioning that all of the following moves are not allowed- Dig, Surf, Fly, Teleport, Dive, and Waterfall. This is because these moves allow fast transportation, and access to areas not ready to be accessed. You can acquire these throughout the game by getting very lucky, or through certain story events.

    ... Crap. We can't choose moves... and therefore will have to be pretty randomized moveset creation. So I suppose you'll just check in at times to reply to every little thing we do? Sounds like a lot of work, mate. Every person shopping, wandering in the bushes, talking to NPCs... Geh.

    I call playing a ninja. Hands off my idea. :P Can my character be a ninja from nearabout Fuchsia Village? You said they vehemently deny that ninjas founded the town, but perhaps there are a few ninjas wandering about...?

    So we can buy from shopkeepers. Or steal from them, right? Or are they friggin' PMD shopkeepers who spawn a secret god-army if you pick up an apple?

    Combat reffing! I can do that. I'm a certified Anime Style Battling referee. :P

    This would make an awesome video game, just saying. Expect a sign up from me (:

    and I think I got the best of them.
    I'm a fireball, baby
    I'm a fireball, baby
    And I'm drivin’ you crazy
    Cuz I'm that lady."


    Yes, I believe in Jesus Christ and no, I don't care what you have to say on the matter.

    Believe me, it's worth it to prevent characters from dominating the plot and keeping everyone balanced. Besides, like I said, I'll be mainly controlling events and NPCs in the world. I'll try to post daily (when possible) to keep up with everyone.

    Can my character be a ninja from nearabout Fuchsia Village? You said they vehemently deny that ninjas founded the town, but perhaps there are a few ninjas wandering about...?
    Yes, there is still a Ninja Clan in existence- the Koga Clan. Can you guess who they descend from? If you insist, you may be a Ninja.

    So we can buy from shopkeepers. Or steal from them, right? Or are they friggin' PMD shopkeepers who spawn a secret god-army if you pick up an apple?
    Go ahead and find out. Make my day. =)

    Combat reffing! I can do that. I'm a certified Anime Style Battling referee. :P
    I considered doing that for awhile. Then I decided not to.

    When I saw this RP, I immediately thought about Soul Seekers. ^_^ It'd be a shame to pass up another chance to play Simon, especially since the old RP didn't take off. Reserve me, please!

    One question, though: what is considered a "high-powered" attack? Moves like Hydro Pump, Leaf Storm, Hyper Beam, etc. would be extremely powerful, of course, but what about status moves? Is Confuse Ray a high-powered move in comparison to Supersonic, or is that entire status something that can only be used by experienced Poke'cite users?

    I consider moves in about 5 different ranks.

    Basic: Moves with a base power of 60-ish or less. Includes a Pokemon's first moves.
    Intermediate: Moves like Flamethrower and Take Down with a power up to around 90-ish.
    Advanced: Moves like Earthquake and Thunder, roughly 100-120 Base Power.
    Ubers: Very Powerful moves with a base power of 140-200, such as Overheat, Hyper Beam, Explosion*, and Draco Meteor.

    *Explosion and Self-Destruct WILL sacrifice the life of the character using it. No coming back.

    As for status afflictions, consider moves based on accuracy. For example, Spore, Confuse Ray, and Dark Void will work far more often than Sleep Powder, Supersonic, or Hypnosis. As a result, they would be higher ranked.

    Name: Avery Lamentea
    Age: 17
    Gender: Female
    Hometown: She was born in Vermillion but has lived in Cerulean for the past few years.

    Description: Striking. Everything about Avery’s appearance is striking; from her physical features right down to the clothes she wears. I suppose we should start at the top and work our way down, so on that note, let’s begin. Her hair is a typical dark brown color with a few golden highlights, courtesy of the sun. It is rather long, cascading all the way down to her hip level but since it is always constricted to a single braid, it appears to be a few inches shorter than it actually is. Her bangs are so long they are virtually non-existent, with the exception of a single strand of hair that sticks out of the upper right side of her head – where her part apparently is – in the way only anime hair can.

    Her eyebrows are slightly thicker and more well-defined compared to most and nicely accent her most truly striking feature: her eyes. Both are big, round, and mystifying, but each is host to a different color. Her left eye is bright yellow in color, quite similar to that of a Pichu’s fur, while her right eye is a deep royal blue color that can only be compared to that of a Dragonair’s orb.

    Her skin is pale – despite long days in the sun – and has rarely been a victim of blemishes. Her nose is small and slightly pointed and her lips are on the thinner side and light pink in color. She has a longer-than-average torso and legs which explain why she is on the taller side for her age. Her arms are of average length but rather skinny despite the fact they are almost pure muscle. Her body is developed quite nicely for her age.

    Her usual attire consists of a pair of light brown mid-calf boots with various straps and buckles on them that are really just there for display purposes and actually provide for some fairly stealthy maneuvering, an ankle-length flowing cream colored skirt covers the rest of her lower half, however, it has two long slits up either side of it which end three-quarter of the way up her thigh to make it easier for her to move around, and it is secured around her waist by a thin brown belt with a simple gold colored buckle. A brown corset covers up everything on her upper half that need to be concealed, however it leaves her shoulders, stomach, and a good portion of her back exposed. On her right forearm is a brown leather bracer that she wears all the time - despite the fact it’s only purpose is to protect her arm when she shooting - and on her left wrist she wears a gold bracelet her aunt gave her.

    History: Avery was born in Vermillion Port to a Diplomat for a father and a Musician for a mother. Now, one thing you should know is that Avery’s father always wanted a son – this was never voiced by anyone, it was just always there. But don’t think he didn’t love Avery; he did, in fact, she was the joy of his life, but he couldn’t help but feel sadden by the fact that he would never have a son due to some complications during Avery’s birth that prevented Avery’s mother from having any more children.

    Knowing this fact, Avery decided she would do anything to make her father proud so she took up archery at a very young age and it turns out she had a natural talent for it. It astounded even the most experienced Archers in the region how well this little 10 year-old-girl could handle a bow; she could hit a target from a good forty yards away at night with almost no light to see by. She began to train under some of the most well-know Archers to perfect her ability even more, and her father was very proud that his daughter was one-of-if-not-the-best archer in the kingdom.

    Then, when Avery was twelve, her mother died. The doctors were unsure as to the cause of her death; some thought that the complications during Avery’s birth may be to blame, while others though she was poisoned. No one could give a definitive answer. Both Avery and her Father were devastated but they promised each other to always stay together as a family. And for the next three years they did just that, and surprisingly grew even closer than they had ever been.

    On Avery’s 15th birthday, her father got a request from Sir Hakan to be one of the diplomats accompanying him to Cinnibar Island to assist with the negotiations of the Island becoming a part of the Kanto Kingdom. Avery’s father was a linguist, meaning he could speak and understand many different languages, and Sir Hakan wanted him to come so they wouldn’t have any communication problems with the island’s inhabitants. Since the request was from one of the Kanto Knights, Avery’s father couldn’t exactly decline. But he also couldn’t leave his fifteen year-old daughter home alone for who knows how long. So it was decided that Avery would stay with her aunt in Cerulean Coast.

    It turns out that Avery’s mother was actually the sister of Lady Nautia of the Kanto Knights, but this relation was kept a secret to protect Avery and her parents from those who might try to use them to get to Lady Nautia. So arrangements were made and after watching her father’s ship sail off, Avery was escorted to Cerulean Castle by some of Lady Nautia’s guards. Avery met her aunt for the first time in her life and discovered that it was from her that she got her long brown hair and deep blue colored eye – however, her Aunt’s eyes were both that color.

    Avery has spent the past two years in Cerulean Coast, practicing her archery, getting to know her aunt, and missing her father – whom with, the only contact she has had over the past two years has been a bi-weekly letter. However, Avery has always had an optimistic sprit about her and has come to consider Cerulean her home and knows nearly every person who inhabits the romantic little village.

    A few weeks ago on her 17th birthday, Avery got two very important gifts. The first was an orange Poke’cite from her father. He had found it on the island and had had it inscribed by a specialist for her to use in her bow. The second was a gold bracelet from her aunt, who, when she gave it to Avery, said that if she were ever in trouble, to send the bracelet to her and she would help her. What Avery has yet to realize is that the bracelet is actually an identical copy to the one her aunt wears all the time, and actually has her Aunt’s Coat-of-Arms engraved into the underside of it.

    Fighting Style: It makes no difference to Avery whether an attack is physical or special based, as long as it is powerful and can cause a lot of damage as quickly as possible, she’ll use it. However, she does prefer long distance attacks to close range ones since it gives her more time to dodge any counter-attacks and it gives her the element of surprise. She has come to prefer the elements of Electricity, Water, and Dragon.

    Weapon of Choice: Bow - with one crest for a low-level poke’cite – and arrow[s]

    Starting Poke'cite: An orange Dragon Poke’cite that is inscribed with the move Dragon Breath. When the Poke’cite is placed into the crest in the bow, any arrow that is aimed/fired from that bow from then on will emit a greenish colored gas from its tip. Once fired from the bow, the arrow spins rapidly and the green gas seeping from the tip will surround the entire arrow so that it looks like a long green colored stream of gas flying through the air. When/if the arrow hits its target, the green gas will either paralyze, disorientate, or not affect the target.

    Do you have anything specific in mind for the Koga Clan, or can I take some liberties in describing them?

    Oh, and is Double Team an acceptable beginning Poke-Cite?

    2b.) Yes, although if you're looking for materials, it might be better to buy them- providing your character isn't easily conned. You'll find Poke'cite by mining as fast as you would by simply walking around.

    3.) The formula is inscribed by etching certain patterns into the gem, and can only be done by a specialist (No, you cannot play as a specialist). The move is random, but will be based on the size and color of the Poke'cite, as well as through random chance by a number generator. This keeps one person from sitting there the whole game and creating weapons/Poke'cite.

    *At this point, I figure it's worth mentioning that all of the following moves are not allowed- Dig, Surf, Fly, Teleport, Dive, and Waterfall. This is because these moves allow fast transportation, and access to areas not ready to be accessed. You can acquire these throughout the game by getting very lucky, or through certain story events.
    Kk, thanks for clearing that up = )

    @Avery: I am willing to accept any element regardless of whether or not someone else has the same element. After all, you should not expect to find 2 of the same Poke'cite, what with there being so many different moves. Next time you join an RPG, please FINISH your signup before you post it.

    @Niihyl: Yes, Double Team is acceptable (and I can guess why you would choose it).

    As for the Koga Clan, there are a few things you should keep in mind. The first is that nobody other than them is aware they exist, so revealing your family name to other characters is a bad idea. They are hidden in the thick forest to the north of Fushia City, and they often go out in public disguised. The houses are similar to the style found in Eastern Japan, and they are protected by a small-scale barrier that just manages to fit around their village. However, the barrier has been malfunctioning lately, prompting the villagers to keep watch in case the barrier falls.

    May I reserve a part? And would it possible for my character to be an ex-handmaiden who used to work in the Celadon Castle? I'm just trying to think of a good reason for her to be kicked out though...

    @Primavera: For the umpteenth time, there are NO RESERVES. I'm not putting a character limit on this game, and therefore, no need for them. Makes me wonder if anyone is reading the rules...

    Yes, you may be an ex-handmaiden. There are only a few select roles I am preventing players from being, due to fairness.

    You may NOT be:
    - A high-ranking Knight.
    - The leader of ANY town.
    - From the Lavender Swamps/Pallet Fields
    - A Blacksmith or Poke'cite specialist.

    Those are the only limits. I will be adding a lot of this information to the first post.

    Sorry I did read the rules, I probably just missed that part. I usually do reserves to help me remember that I want to be in whatever RPG. A character limit usually makes it easier on the GM to remember who's in the RPG and who's not. You wouldn't want 200 friggin' people, and you having to keep track of 'em.

    Anyway, you shall see a SU coming from me in a giffy.

    While it's nice to know you have confidence in how well this RPG is planned, I highly doubt it will reach "200 friggin' people" either from the beginning or the end. If that DOES somehow happen, I'll make a forum RPG based on this, and try to get some mods to keep it under control.

    @ The Black Glove : okay, and heh, yeah sorry about that, but I've seen people do that for other RPGs and like I said before, I wasn't sure if the poke ‘cite was on a first-come-first-serve basis.....Anyway, my SU is done now, hope I did alright (:
