    Stuck at home with SBURB 2
    It has been exactly 931 days since our last adventure began, dear reader.We thought you may wish to know this fascinating information. 931 days since a copy of SBURB arrived at a young 13 year old named John Egbert's house. Shortly after its arrival, meteors started raining down. On EVERY house SBURB was being played. What then occurred were many simultaneous and excellent adventures.

    In one such adventure, the kids found themselves in a new world full of odd creatures to kill, planets and moon never seen before, a battlefield host to a glorified game of chess, and an evil guy ruining it all, named Jack Noir. All of this with the aim of creating a new Universe. They found that their world was in fact the result of a session by some trolls (the name of the species that they were) from a planet named Alternia.

    However, unlike what was told to these many adventurers, the world did not end. That was just a convenient lie, told to utterly stop anyone who'd survived SBURB and somehow made it back to Earth from warning people about the game's power (presumably if anyone ever got back they'd be convinced it wasn't Earth). Eventually, the meteor shower stopped. Nobody on Earth knew the reason for it happening in the first place or why it suddenly stopped. According to scientists, the meteors were a freak shower, happening far too rapidly for any Earth telescope to be able to pick it up in space.

    And so, Earth's people forgot the very existence of the meteors. life returned to normal. Country leaders once more began their pointless and endless rambling about the "serious matters" of economy, war and running a country. Sports stars once again dazzled us with their amazing skills and some appalled us with their woeful behaviour). Movie stars and their directors created stunning films for all to enjoy. Musical geniuses created catchy tuned that we are still singing today.

    Crucially, though, the gaming networks came back online. Playstation, Xbox, and even Nintendo started becoming available once more and addictive games were made. Along with the internet, they facilitated the newest game. It seems extremely unimportant, but it will change the world. It's name is SBURB 2. It's supposedly the new and improved version of SBURB. It was released the day before yesterday, on Halloween. Want to see the case?


    That's it. No other information. Nothing on the back. but for some reason, the kids all love it. All of them. They're getting it in droves (it doesn't cost anything). Soon the world will once more be host to a fascinating meteor show. more craters. more death. More insanity. And that, dear reader, is where you come in. You are one of ten friends about to embark on the journey that is SBURB. You will play the game. You will no doubt discover great things. Hopefully, you will win.

    Good luck!

    Differences from the original SBURB.
    SBURB on MSPA Wiki
    In terms of entry, the style of the game and all the little artefacts available, SBURB 2 is exactly like the original. There is a server player and a client player. When you get the game, you get both discs, the server disc and the client disc. The game cannot fully begin and therefore finish before all players are both clients and servers and within the game. SBURB 2 (and its predecessor) allow you to control the real-life and real-time surroundings of your client player. The client can roam freely without needing to do anything. The server player is then able to build rooms, add on to existing rooms, deploy game objects, and manipulate objects in the Client's environment. Unlike the first SBURB, this construction is not limited to a certain radius. It is therefore possible to create massive houses, though usually, it isn't necessary. A returning factor from the first SBURB is that there are building blocks needed to create all of this called Grist. Server players get given some at the start of each server-client forming, but once that has gone, the only way to accumulate it is through defeating enemies.

    Unlike the first SBURB, there are not millions of different types of grist. There are instead three types. These are called Build Grist, needed to do all the Server players' actions, Item Grist, needed by the player to create, enhance or combine their items (and weapons) and Medium Grist, which is very rare, but can be used to create ingame items from scratch by either player. There is an app called Gristorrent that can either give level the players' Grist, or take certain amounts of grist from other players, but aside form this, Grist cannot be given to others. Whatever Grist obtained only works for the players who got it (unless if using Gristorrent as mentioned).

    You enter the game by creating a kernelsprite. This is a sprite who becomes a wise game manual, who you can interact with fully. They will speak English and sense if they're a sentient being. In the new game this has become more advanced and you can now prototype your sprite with anything that is an image or representation of a sentient being, including the sentient being itself. You can prototype your sprite again if you prototyped it with something useless, and you can re-prototype it once more, but after that, you're stuck with whatever you have. But starting the process itself makes a meteor start to bear down on your exact location. If in the time it takes for the meteor to hit your location, you have not managed to enter the game using your entry item (they all make you enter the game in different ways and the materials to make them are give as ingame objects), the meteor will crash and you will get killed. You "enter" into a place known as the Medium, where the game takes place. The medium is a stepping stone into the actual game itself, known at the Incisphere.

    The objective of the game is to create a new universe. And actual proper new universe. It can do that. And in the universe you create, you are Gods. I will get round to the other aim, a new core aim that means you completing the game, later, after I've explained the new plot of the game.

    In the original SBURB, each player had a planet. From that planet they gradually upgraded themselves and learnt to be fantastic fighters. They then could kill the black king and queen, the main antagonists, who fought against the white king and queen, the protagonists, in a glorified game of Chess, on a massive planet known as the battlefield. The Kings were on the battlefield at all times until the black king and queen were killed. The queens lived on yet two more planets named Derse and Prospit. All ingame sentient beings, apart form the consorts (animals that lived on each players planets that were pretty irrelevant) got given the powers and some of the looks of each successive prototyped initial kernelsprite. The objective was to kill the black monarchs and then gain the queen's ring and the king's staff, and then gain the white monarch's items (which were the same, but were given to you by the White King and Queen and did not need to be forced to give them). This would then allow you to create the new Universe, via the successful breeding of the mother frog, the universe frog, the genesis frog (by whoever has the planet where you can breed frogs on) who IS the universe that you create. You also had to kill an evil killer named Jack Noir, who appeared in every game, who was after the black queen's ring in order to gain its abilities. Each player had one "life" in the form of a dream self, who awoke when the player went to sleep, on the moon of either Prospit or Derse.

    This has been altered slightly in this second version of the game. Instead of Chess being the main element, there are now two interlinking games occurring. Chess is still present (although there is not a "queen" figure and Prospit and Derse don't exist- there is one Monarch/Leader of either army) but as well as that, there is a four-way "war" or sorts going on between four separate factions. The two wars don't interact with eachother much. Each side (there are a total of six sides) has their individual planet which is their base of operations. There is also a battlefield where the Chess-Like War takes place, but the other war takes place on the four planets controlled by the four factions. There is no side in either or the two wars that can be seen as either Protagonistic or Antagonistic.
    The second aim is to stop both wars from happening. There is an artefact for each player somewhere on their planet. The first part of the game is extremely individual, with a proper "level" structure, and with the final level being finding the Artefact. They must find all of these and combine them to create a peace item that stops fighting from happening. This then allows the group of players to interact with eahcother and prepare for the final stage that is creating the new universe.
    Instead of one life that is a dream self, players have three lives. When a player dies the first time, just before they die, a shield that stops death shields them. Once it is use,d it cannot be used again, and that life is lost. The second life is a healing agent that automatically heals the player just as they are about to die. After this, the player dies properly, and the other players must continue the game without them.
    Consorts no longer exist, and enemies are not prototyped by the kernelsprites. Instead, whatever the first player prototypes, they will somehow create all enemies form that for the whole game. For example, if the first player prototyped an image of Ninetendo's Mario, all enemies and the fighters in the wars would look like Mairo characters. As we are a Pokemon forum, this quest's enemies will be Pokemon. The planets all provide different services and each have an agent who will try and corrupt your game as much as possible.

    Sylladex
    Sylladex on MSPA Wiki
    Hey, big news. You can't carry things anymore. Instead, you have to rely on an inventory system known at the Sylladex. You can "Captchalogue" (put into inventory) items. They will then be transformed into cards. Easier to carry, but it can be dangerous if done wrong. Each Fetch Modus (way of organizing the inventory) is different. There is the basic Stack modus, where things are just put into a stack. You can only use the item on the top card, and if you captchalogue one too many item, the bottom item will be propelled out into the real world again. If this is a dangerous item, like a sword, you can imagine what a flying sword might do in terms of damage.

    There is a list of different Fetch Modi on the page I provided for you. Choose one of those, or make up one of your own. You will have to fully describe how it works if you choose this.

    As well as your standard inventory, there is also your "Strife Deck". Strife basically means fight. In your strife deck, you can have up to three different weapon classes. So... Hammer, Sword and Needles (anything your can justify as being a weapon basically). You have one as your main one. The other two are only used every so often.

    Pesterchum and Titles
    Everyone has a games console or computer if they have SBURB and can play it. There is also the Pesterchum on every device. It's a simple chat system. Each player has a screen name different from their real name, and a two letter capital letter abbreviation of their name. They all have a different text colour and a different typing quirk that differentiates them (for example, Writing Every Word With A Capital Letter At The Start, or WrItInG iN aLtErNaTiNg CaPs, or WR1T1NG 1N C4PS 4ND L33T SP34K (these are all actual typing quirks form Homestuck).

    As well as this, every player has a "title". John Egbert, the principal character in Homestuck, is the "Heir of Breath". Rose Lalonde, the second introduced character, is the "Seer of Light". Dave Strider, the third in their group of friends, is the "Knight of Time". And the last of the four, Jade Harley, is the "Witch of Space". The formula is "Title of Noun". This should incorporate both types. Likewise, each planet follows a formula, which is "Land of ___ and ___". In our adventure, each player will be taking two types in Pokemon (with three "Extra" types, Time, Space and Light). They will eventually inherit the power to control these types. The three new ones are pretty self-explanatory. Whoever gets Time and Space also gets "boring" types, like Normal and Ghost. This is to balance it out a little. Also, whoever gets Space is the person who has to do the frog breeding to get the Universe Frog. They will get Normal type. Your kernelsprites MUST all be of the two types you have. My character will be Fire/Fighting, and as such, will get a Combusken as his kernelsprite. Therefore, when picking two types, make sure that that type combination has an existing Pokemon. If you are one of the three non-existing types, you take the existing type you have and take a Pokemon that is just that type.

    God tiers. Due to the lack of dream selves, God tiers work differently to the original SBURB. Instead of dying on a Quest bed, once the whole team creates the Ultimate Peace brought about by the artefacts' bringing together, everyone becomes "God tier". It is nowhere near as powerful as it was in the original SBURB, and it does not grant immortality (until you become a God in your new universe), but you will at this point be able to control your two types.

    Kernelsprites (I'm guessing, it's your choice after all which Poke ya take):

    AudinoGlitch- Ferroseed/Ferrothorn
    Killer Squirtle- Squirtle
    Flame Mistress- Sneasel/Weavile

    All reservations accepted. Can't edit my large post on the 3DS, but will do tomorrow.

    Reservations last 48 hours from the time I accept them. Once that over, your types are fair game again.

    Oh, and KS, it was actually your post in the Ideas and Wishes thread that prompted the Rp idea. It also prompted me to start again and get up to date with Homestuck (I abandoned it for a while mid-Act 4.)

        Spoiler:- Brief mourning:

    Name: "Blue" Hilroy
    Screen name and typing quirk: treacherousThinker [my actual pesterchum account] perfect sintax, psuedo-swears, uses =} and X} as smilies. Often gives people nicknames and uses caps lock for emphasis. Replaces 'ks' sound with x
    Age: 13
    Gender: Female
    Titles: Reaper of Water and Light
    Name of Planet: Land of Storms and Glow
    Fetch Modus: Sketch Modus [draws pics on cards to gain access]
    Strife deck: Scythekind, slingshotkind, hockeystickkind
    Description: If it weren't for a slightly budding female figure, you would swear Blue was a boy. Her short chestnut brown hair with a natural wave to it is one of the reasons for this mistake; her absolute refusal to wear anything remotely feminine the other. Blue's typical outfit is a dark navy blue t-shirt with her trademark emblem of a sea-turtle silhouette is turpuoise square on the chest, and a pair of well-worn black pants. She wouldn't wear shoes at all if she could help it, but if the terrain is going to be rough on her feet, she wears a pair of grey sport sandals. Of course, she has to wear a pair of glasses or else her steel-blue eyes aren't that useful to her. One part of her appearance she doesn't like is her teeth; they're unusually sharp and her canines sometimes peek out of her lips when she grins. She thinks they may be due to a mutation or something.

    Personality: Blue loves to keep people guessing. She hates anything typical or predictable, but at the same time hates being caught off guard. She's been called 'paranoid', and she's never denied it. She tends to keep her herself while feining openness with those close to her. This keeping to herself also translates to her not acting near her intelligence, she feins simplicity on the surface while going through some serious shiznit in her head. She's an avid philosopher, but she'll never give her philosophies unless someone really needs it. Her usual philosophies stem from the zen principals of the universe being in balance, she feels it's justified by the universal law of Conservation of Mass. But she's developed some weird views on death... And an obsession with cryptozoology.

    While being very much a tomboy, she loves fighting, but not in a cruel sense. She uses video games and violent tv and movies as her outlets. This also resulted in her making her own scythe by taping a knife to a hockey stick. Weird thing is, making the scythe strangley coincided with her insomnia. One thing she's not confident in, is her artistic abilities, even though she's great at cartoons.

    She looooves meat, and she'll eat just about any animal under the sun as long as it wasn't going to kill her. In contrast, she hates vegetables with avengence. She loves real rock and Techno music and absolutely can't stand rap. She absolutely hates psychocologists. Hates. She loooooooves animated movies, hates dramas and over-hyped actors. Although she has an interest in Cryptozoology, she hates vampires A LOT. She has an Edward Cullen punching bag.

    Biography: Blue has lived alone with her older sister Ruth, on a small private island in the St Lawrence. Ruth had an obsession with Lil' Miss pageants and was entering Blue since she was little. Blue didn't know any better, but went along with her sister's insanity because Ruth always tricked her with Disney movies. Ruth was a shrink and new all the psycho-tricks to get Blue to do whatever she wanted. But one day, when Blue was lined up with the other girls, she noticed that every one of them looked the same. She realized that she had become the product of an assembly line! Blue flipped her shiznit realizing what her sister put her through. She chopped off all of her hair by herself and started wearing boys' clothes in rebellion of Ruth. She went completely tomboy from being a disney princess, and she developed paranoia in order to prevent her sister from being able to read her. She developed her own philosophies and started creating mental masks to keep one step ahead of both her sister and life.

    No one was going to catch her off guard again.

    But when her philosophies on death began taking shape, she began having... Nightmares. Horrible, horrible nightmares. She wouldn't dare tell anyone though, especially her sister. She put herself in a self-imposed insomnia to help her deal with the nightmares. She operates off of about three hours of sleep each night, but can get kind of testy if she has a particularly bad one. She can barely even remember them, all she knows is they're scary. But the weirdest part is that whenever she gets a really scary one, when she wakes up she feels compulsed to create weapons like her hockey-scythe.

    Name: Thomas Smith
    Screen name and typing quirk: AnvilFist. Capital letters, correct spelling and Punctuation. Frequently makes typos. These are always corrected with a *[correction] the line after.
    He has a farmer/cowboy's accent when he's typing. "Y'all"s, "Howdy"s and other common farm or cowboy phrases are commonplace. He also uses animal terms instead of other words. (Don't be a chicken, stop horsing around, you're a cow, don't be a pig). He only ever refers to people, using the Initial of their first named followed by the suffix "dog". (So, for example, Derek would be referred to as "D-dog").
    When he's angry, he uses all caps and drops the animal thing. He never drops the -dog thing, though.

    Age: 16
    Gender: Male
    Titles: Knight of Fire and Fighting
    Name of Planet: Land of Flames and Hardship.
    Fetch Modus: Grassblade. Thomas has a dead wild grass blade in his mouth at the same time. His fetch modus plays on this. Captchaloguing an item turns it into a grass blade. It is coloured very roughly like the item that was captchalogued. To use the item again, all Tom needs to do is take off the end, and the item flies out.
    Strife deck: Clubkind, Pitchforkkind, Monkeysfistkind
    Description:

    Thomas is medium height, medium weight and medium build for his age. He's a little stronger than most people his age. He has light brown short hair that is generally speaking messy and spiked up randomly. He has blue eyes, and thick eyebrows that are often in the form or a deep frown. He has a very unimpressed and annoyed look on his face.

    He wears an orange t-shirt with a yellow pawprint image on it. He wears an open yellow, dark red and orange checkered shirt on top. He has a pair of sunglasses that hang loosely from his t-shirt, that he wears if it's sunny. He always has a blade of dead wild grass in his mouth. He wears camo sorts and has orange converses.

    Personality: Thomas is almost perpetually angry or annoyed. He often has a very annoyed, unimpressed look on his face, and is very grumpy. He dislikes having to actually do any physical labour, even though he very capable of doing so. He is a kind person, and an optimist at heart, but his derogatory comments often lead people to think he's a very rude and mean-spirited person. He's a very loyal friend though, and will always help people in trouble if he can. Thomas is also very determined, putting his heart and soul into anything he wants to succeed at. He is a very good leader, and enjoys leadership, but isn't obsessed with it (not like Karkat is, anyway).

    Thomas has a little bit of an obsession with Farms. He often talks a bit like a farmer for fun. he loves farmyard animals and farmyard machinery. He has a lot of farmyard objects in his room. He also really likes Penguins, and has made several comics about "Supenguin", his Superhero Penguin character, but these are just in his books and not online. Thomas loved rap music. He's a lyrics genius, being capable of memorising lyrics to raps within days of hearing one for the first time. He hates Enimem though.

    Thomas has a loathing for Bananas, and is on a crusade to rid all Bananas form the world. He also despises anything remotely Italian, although is less determined to rid Italian thing from the planet for obvious reasons. He also hates meat, being an animal friend and a vegetarian. He dislikes being really, really angry, preferring to have his mildly annoyed look on.

    Biography: Thomas never knew a mother or father. The only person he has ever had in his life is his mischievous and annoying younger brother, Robert. Yet the two of them own a house (although Thomas has no idea how they do. Robert doesn't really care), and life perfectly happily. They somehow have enough money to buy food and live perfectly well. The two have long suspected they have some sort of fairy god mother who pays everything for them without them knowing.

    Thomas had a very strained childhood. He had to be in charge of his brother, who since an early age has constantly pestered him. It's his brother's Italian obsession that has made Thomas dislike the country and everything to do with it so much. Pizza, Pasta, he hates them, and his brother constantly manages to sneak Italian things into the food (his brother is the one out of the two that can cook. Thomas is hopeless at it), much to Thomas' frustration.

    That's the sort of Sign Up I'm looking for. In terms of the image, you can find the template and various body parts HERE. It's not obligatory, but I would really like it to be present in the sign up if possible.

    Actually I think I'll relinquish my reserve. I don't think this RPG is for me.

    Hi there. I'd like to put in a reserve for Bug and Steel, please, while Steel's still open.

    (e: also, what's your view on using a title not drawn from the series, e.g. if I wanted a character whose Title was, for instance, Monk of X and Y?)

    KS, Accepted.

    Mariya Shidou and Raiden, your reservations are noted. Again I'm on my 3DS right now, but I'll edit the first post tomorrow.

    Mariya Shidou, about your question. Yep, of course! Go ahead.

    I'm going to reserve this post for my S-U, if you don't mind.

    Name: Anya Harris

    Screen name and typing quirk: cannyThespian, she translates any chat speak abbreviations and swearing into Morse code. Substitutes Morse dots with 0's. One must simply ask for a translation, and she will translate every article of Morse in order. Replaces periods with an asterisk and exclamation marks with a tilde (~). other than that, she types with ace grammar. save refusing to type S's (types "th" instead).

        Spoiler:- Example:


    Age: 14

    Gender: Female

    Titles: Songstress of Trees

    Name of Planet: Land of Skies and Flora

    Fetch Modus: Morse. Once Anya opens her Captchalogue, a metronome sounds (indicating the speed of which she should input Morse) and each card is given a random call tag consisting of a letter then a one or two-digit number. To input Morse, she simply snaps for a dot and claps for a dash. After she inputs the Morse, she then grabs the card she wants to access the item. If the call tag of the card grabbed does not match with the Morse inputted, the item will be expelled from the Captchalogue.

    Strife deck: [u]Songkind[/s], Boomerangkind, Snibbleskind (her cat)

    Description:

    (credit to Proby3)

    Anya tends to dye her chocolate brown hair (usually kept long, because she refuses to cut it) a lot of different colors. The same goes for her average brown eyes, as she has to switch from contacts to glasses (though she prefers glasses) to match who or whatever she's cosplaying. Due to all of the Tennis playing, she has a rather tall, curvaceous figure, topped with generic 34B cups (lies about being a C, is wearing cups to boost her size by a letter grade). Her clothes change depending on who she's cosplaying, but she's usually seen with just a white, short sleeve t-shirt with some floral pink and green design. not really a pant person, but not really a skirt person either, she decides to wear really long skirts, which are cut open on one side. This of course, exposes her left leg, making her hot pink flats a bit more visible. Her general fashion sense lies in anime-style battle dresses, but that's a far as it goes. she really doesn't feel like incorporating it into real life.

    Personality: To start off, Anya is outwardly feminine. she's very open about herself and her hobbies. If prompted, she'll list everything she knows about herself, even all of the personal bits. Someone may or may not stop her, but being a real chatterbox, she doesn't quite know when to shut up just yet. However, she is what she says she is; a Morse code-loving cosplayer. She does a truckload of fanservice for her slight-above-average-sized fanbase (sometimes in the form of art) to raise money to facilitate her Morse code hobby and material for other outfits. She's very serious about cosplay, and even goes to adapt the personality of the character she's cosplaying as her own(e.g develops a penchant for bananas etc when cosplaying as Tropius). She is prone to maximum over dramatizing.

    A lover of the colors pink and pale green, she dislikes anyone who refuses to like it, or refuses to cooperate with her in a general sense. She's not exactly a natural-born leader, but she wants to make sure she's ahead of everyone else. Thus, she tries to fill her head with as much knowledge as possible, but this tactic doesn't fair too well for her hasty mindset. The only academic subject she excels fairly in would be Science. This knowledge is apparently just to make sure she knows a lot, even though she could really care less. Drama and the Arts suit her much better. To summarize this paragraph, she's a girl who's always rushing to be first, but isn't very good at it.

    Anya's most precious possessions are her straight key (her main inspiration for her Morse code obsession) and her laptop, by far. Whenever she isn't playing Tennis, she's ALWAYS seen using her laptop, whether it be for installing another visual novel, downloading yet another crappy MMO (for "testing"), or simply on forums. Yet another defining trait is that if she breaks into an argument with someone, she will immediately go into troll mode, and continue feeding the other person rage fuel. Her justification for this is weak; Anya dismisses it as light teasing. She has a hard time accepting her flaws, and acts all airheaded when she loses, and gets arrogant and cocky when she gets her way.

    As for food preferences... she doesn't really think too hard about it, and tends to eat whatever's edible (for science, or so she claims). She also doesn't quite understand the concept of vegetarianism. Of course, she has to maintain her figure, or her cosplaying fanbase would rapidly shrink, so she usually goes to the roof tennis court on weekends. She makes sure to bring a camera with her with her, wherever she goes; she never knows when she'll have a random fanservice moment.

    Biography: Anya was raised as an only child. She lived with her mother, father and cat, Snibbles, in Baltimore, Maryland. She didn't really have any friends as she grew up, nor did she have time for them. Before the Morse code hobby, she spent her time roughly sketching dresses for Snibbles. One fateful day, while searching for her sketches in the closet, she came across an old straight key. she tried pressing the knob, but at first, nothing happened. since she wasn't really good with wires, she had to ask her parents to google it (she wasn't quite familiar with computers either). when she eventually got it hooked up, she was amazed by the "wonderful" beeping sound it made. she didn't understand what this meant just yet.

    As her hobby continued to grow, she learned that a new addition in the family would be arriving. Imagining it was a sister, Anya had started her creative spree. More and more dresses popped up into her mind, and even though she wasn't skilled at drawing, she had an idea, and that was goo enough for her. One year had passed, and nothing had happened. Then, one day, her mother "simply got up and left". Anya wasn't quite sure what to think of this, and assumed that she would come back... eventually. She decided to forget about it, and continue life as normal.

    Now that she was older, she discovered the wonderful thing known as magical girl anime. Anya grew a bit tired of the love-torn heroine, and decided to focus her "art" to resemble the feminine anti-hero getting in the heroine's way. Them, or the really busty one. after discovering anime on the internet, she found new online ways to express her otaku culture, such as forums, MMO's etc. She also took the time to properly learn Morse code, and eventually became very fluent.

    One day, when she was 12, she had come across a group rehearsing for Otakon. After nagging them and her parent to let her join, both parties finally gave in, and she signed up for the first time. At Otakon, she found a place of freedom where she could more freely express her otaku culture with people who sympathized. Her new gang even helped her patch up her designs, and just like that, she became a cosplayer.

    Name: Sean Keegan
    Screen name and typing quirk: GearMaster, abuses captials
    Age: 15
    Gender: Male
    Titles: Priest of Hourglasses
    Name of Planet: Land of Clocks and Graveyards
    Fetch Modus: Rubix Cube - each item is allocated a colour, and a side (sides of cube depends on how many items in deck, however, there can be no less than 6). It then mixes itself up, and Sean must solve the puzzle. Only then can he choose which item he wants. However, if he fails to complete the puzzle within a set amount of time, all the items come out.
    Strife deck: LighterKind, CleaverKind
    Description:
    [IMG]http://i43.*******.com/2vmstnp.png[/IMG]
    Tall and lanky, Sean has a pale white skin, and almost pixie like features. His eyes are brilliant blue, and they always seem sharp and intelligent, as if they would never miss anything. His hair is rather long, straight and black in colour. He pulls it back in a ponytail, to keep it out of the way. Because he has a bit of trouble seeing things close to him, she wears a pair of glasses to help with his sight.

    Sean has a liking for wearing tee shirts, often with futuristic designs or some creepy abstract pattern, because he really likes that kind of thing. His current favourite is a grey blue tee shirt, with white gear patterns all over it. When it gets colder, she often adds a blue hoodie to keep warm. He never ever wears shorts however, always wearing some form of jeans. They are usually black, and almost always ripped because he can be a bit careless with his things sometimes. For shoes, he just rocks out in blue converses.

    Personality: He comes across as a quiet and serious kind of boy, and maybe even a bit uncaring, but this does not mean that Sean doesn’t enjoy the company of others, and he is very loyal to people he considers to be his friends. He is a rather sensitive sort of person, who can be hurt very easily by other people’s words, much to his own dismay. However, he has a rather forgiving nature, so he doesn’t tend to hold a grudge against such people for very long. But, because he has a strong sense of right and wrong, he will often pretend to still be angry at people who have hurt them, just so they know they’ve done the wrong thing – even if he forgave them days ago.

    Sean has a high dislike of conflict, or anything that could generate conflict. He prefers to talk her way out of situations, and will rarely fight back if he is attacked, more likely to run away. He has little patience or respect for those who actively seek out violence or conflict of any sort, so if he must hang around such a person he will often treat them as a lesser being, often without explaining why.

    He’s not the kind of person to be interested in leading or controlling others, as he prefers to work by himself, and doesn't relaly enjoy others telling him what to do. If he has to work in a group, he will probably just try and fade into the background. He's a bit of a pyro, enjoys and is good at little puzzles such as Rubix cubes, and enjoys daydreaming about the future. He has a fascination for machines and how they work, but he isn’t very good with mechanics, leading him to just get frustrated. One of his pet hates, however, is little pop star wannabes. Don't get him started on the topic of how much he hates them, you'll be there for a while. He also hates loud noises.

    Biography: Sean was an accident. His parents already had more than enough kids than they could feed, and when they found out that his mother was pregnant, they considered getting an abortion. But, it never happened because Sean’s auntie Megan offered to look after him herself.

    He grew up with Megan, who currently is a librarian, and so he was always surrounded by books. The two got along alright together, although his home life at the moment seems to revolve around Megans obsessions with Justin Bieber, and is constantly trying to come up with ways to ruin the Biebers without getting caught. The two of them live in a small cottage in a coastal town together, only a few blocks away from the library. However, Sean tries not the make this a well known fact, as he is often picked on by stronger guys at school, just because he's weaker, he looks like a bit of a goth and has glasses. He truely hates school, and cannot wait for any excuse to leave it.

    Aura Wolfe, character accepted.

    I'm now also adding reservations (if there's half a form like Raiden) to the list in light orange colour.

    I've changed my mind about the titles- I want to keep it original like normal Homestuck so it'll just be Title of ____. It'll need to be a combinaiton of the two somehow.

    So for example, Knights are Warrios, which makes you think of Fighting type. Fighting types are also "honourable" (and therefore like knights). So the Knight of Fire fits with Thomas' two types.

    I've renamed each of your three characters. If you're not happy, feel free to modify it.
    Blue is now the Reaper of Rainbows. Rainbows are to do with Light (Sunlight specifically) and Water (They happen with Rain present).
    Cierra is now the Priestess of Time. Priests live in churches which are near graveyards, so Ghost type, and Time is obvious.
    Anya would be the Songstress of Trees, should she be accepted. Trees are plants so Grass, and Trees reahc high into the sky and therefore the Air, hence Flying type.

    We really need more Male chracters. Oh, and a female charatcer who's more like Jade or Nepeta, Blue and Cierra seem a little too Kanya/Rose-like. You don't need to change them, but I'd like a little variation in personalities.

    Finally, for the type combinaitons to work we need these pairings:
    Electric/Dragon (Zekrom)
    Poison/Ground (Nidoking/Nidoqueen)
    Psychic/Rock (Lunatone/Solrock)
    Space/Normal (Any Pure Normal type)

    or

    Electric/Dragon (Zekrom)
    Rock/Ground (Any Rock/Ground)
    Psychic/Normal (Meloetta or Girafarig)
    Space/Poison [I would allow this] (Any Pure Poison type)

    Your options have just been limited.

    Edited Cierra slightly, because clowns are waay to mainstream. So I figured we might as well bag out teen pop stars instead. 'cause I hate them >>

    Also, would the Priestess of Gears work? Priestess implies a link to spiritual stuff, while gears are often used in clocks, and pretty much never stop, which makes them like time.

    Name: Lily Milligan
    Screen name and typing quirk: carnifexLunaris; types in dark red. Capital H is replaced by the pound sign (#) and only capitalizes the first letter of a sentence.

        Spoiler:- Example:


    Age: 15
    Gender: ♀
    Titles: Shikari of Screws
    Name of Planet: Land of Machines and Webs
    Fetch Modus: Shuffle Modus. Similar to an Array modus, but using it instead selects an item at random. If this item is what the user is searching for, it must be confirmed, otherwise the item can be skipped. So, it's a little more time-consuming. This is controlled by Lily's music player. She can also choose to force an item to spawn in her bag.
    Strife deck:
    • Wrenchkind: Chosen after the protagonist of BioShock, a simple Stillson wrench or a some kind of gigantic relic that slays demons and tightens pipes, both will work here. Probably with some scaling-down. Lily's primary weapon type.
    • Pistolkind: Primarily the Luger P08, but always the secondary weapon type regardless.


    Description: Not doing the image here because I don't think I'd be able to pull it off.

    Lily is a bit tall for her age. Tall enough, at least, to not fit in her bed properly, causing her ankles and beyond to stick out just over the edge. This is a cause of a significant lack of sleep for her, but she doesn't seem to be as heavilly affected as some. Her auburn hair is quite long, about halfway down her back. It's very carefully kept, but it'd be hard to tell that if you didn't know her; it looks very messy. It's a carefully crafted mess. Her blue eyes are a bit odd, and they feature easily-identiable sectoral heterochromia, causing the left eye to have a huge wedge of dark, reddish brown from about twelve o'clock to four (in terms of angle on her eye; that has nothing to do with time).

    Lily's clothes borrow a lot of inspiration from goth and rivethead fashions, particularly the male rivethead fashions. As a result, she was always known as being the weird kid. She commonly wears boots, particularly jackboots that resemble those of the British Household Cavalry. The rest of her clothing consists of a thoroughly battered black skirt, about halfway between knee-length and ankle-length, and a long-sleeved red shirt bearing a cross-shaped mark, in reference to Rin Tousaka from the Fate series. In colder weather, she wears a black bomber jacket with a moon symbol on it.

    She often wears a pair of black goggles with large, red, circular lenses that cover her eyes. If the game reaches that point, her computer will probably be alchemized into those. She carries around a messenger bag with a music player that resembles one once created by Apple quite closely attached to it. Well, it's inside of a case which is attached to the strap. It could be removed, with some work. She usually stores her headphones, and her laptop computer, in her bag. Speaking of her computer, she owns a very new computer, the newest she can get. It's been through a number of upgrades by her that include the permanent attachment of a strong external fan and an extra set of USB ports. She uses this machine mostly for playing video games, but it's also good for getting into contact with others. Not that she has many friends.

    She's of slightly fragile build, but only enough to hold her back just a little.

    Personality: Lily Milligan is marked most readily by a taste for the morbid and dark. Not in the same manner as Rose's affinity for horrorterrors, but she probably would find that interesting. She loves video games, animated series (particularly non-Western), and horror films. She also has an affinity for music, especially post-punk. She dresses in clothes clearly borrowing influence from typical goth outfits. She doesn't exactly hate anything, but she has a distaste for being seen as normal. So, she's a hipster, in a way.

    Unsurprisingly given her hobbies, she has a tendency toward the morbid, widely known to comment on the shortness of life at times. She doesn't seem to like the idea of dying, though, trying to stay out of danger as much as she can. It probably couldn't be said that she genuinely fears death, not more than anyone else. Furthermore, she tends to be a little too careful in action, even though her words can be harsh and generally very dark. She does actually have a very significant cheerful side that most don't get to see unless they've been around her a while.

    Most of the time, she's content to take a backseat to others and will not usually accept leadership positions if they are offered to her. She hates to be the one who could be held responsible for anyone's death. Instead, she prefers to stay back. She tends to take life slowly and actually enjoys studying. She sometimes has a hard time seeing why someone wouldn't, considering the benefits. She keeps her emotions tightly reined in and tries to stay quiet as needed. After all, emotional outbursts just don't solve problems that often. At least, not as often as they cause them. She wants to be a writer. A writer or a video game programmer. She tends to keep a lot of secrets about herself, and usually it takes a long time for even her closest friends to get to know things about her.

    Lily uses the pseudonym "Adam Boltzmann" online. It's a pun, referring to physicist Ludwig Boltzmann, and a character from a series she enjoys named Kumagawa Misogi. She simply takes the male persona because she wants to.

    Biography: Lily was, for some time, just a normal kid -- particularly as far as she was concerned. Then zombies ate her neighbors she started to discover video games. Well, she was exposed to them at a very young age by her older brother and became extremely interested in them. To say the least, she encountered more than a little media that was meant for someone way older than her. She ran into Fate/stay night, the System Shock series, and many other such games. She couldn't help enjoying them, though. Her curiosity about music was also something she learned from her brother.

    Now would probably be a good time to note that she was adopted. Better late than never. She never learned this, though. Her mother died during childbirth, and her father didn't consider himself capable of raising a child, particularly not without a mother around. She was adopted by a small famil who were new to her city and who had wanted a young daughter for some time. The older brother, then about seven and just then beginning to discover video games, wanted someone to impart his knowledge on to and distort a little a sibling to torment, although he never expressed that to his mother and father when he continuously requested them to get another kid. Of course, it was kind of hard explaining to a six-year-old that daddy had had surgery that made him impotent.

    Lily's older, non-biological brother left home earlier this year, but not so soon as to not get the young girl into some seriously nerdy hobbies. Not that she wasn't already into many of them going in to high school, though. Her parents tried hard to be careful about not spoiling her too much, and she respects them for that. Well, she does now that she's older; when she was little, she didn't. In high school, she was offered a chance to start taking Latin, and she took it, thinking it would be the most interesting choice of a foreign language. Useless in the real world, probably, but interesting to know. She was always so much more interested in things that were just "interesting" instead of what was practical or useful.

    She didn't know what had attracted her to Sburb. She wasn't exactly big on online games. She didn't have any friends to play them with. People just thought she was a freak, and even her online persona was anti-social as all get-out. Still... it sounded fun. She could probably blow a few hours on it, then go back to just playing Magic where she could be a loxodon cenobite or whatever. Maybe it'll turn out more fun than that?

        Spoiler:- Some side data, references lists, etc.:


    Well, my back is broken by this length. It's probably way too long in some places and too short in others.

    God I love Homestuck

    EDIT: Nevermind I got it done c:

    Name: Elena Anavari
    Screen name and typing quirk: deviouslyDisastrous [Types in orange; and ‘~peaks very ~pontaniously and often ~wears al~o u~e~ the face~ ;w; and c: a lot’
    Age: 14
    Gender: Female
    Titles: Seer Of Thought [Normal/Psychic]
    Name of Planet: [Land of Wisdom and Aliens
    Fetch Modus: Scratch And Sniff
    Strife deck: Gunkind, Arrowkind, Shoekind

    Description:
    http://heavenly-hourglass.deviantart...lena-267371483
    Elena has amazingly curly brown hair, it’s about mid-length and extremely curly at the tips. She also has very big green eyes, she never wears make-up; declaring it to be ‘Stupid and dumb; it only makes your acne worse.’ She is white; and of German/Irish descent. Her sense in fashion can be best described as ‘throw on the first thing you see in the morning.’ She wears an orange shirt with a pretty teal music note branded across the front; along with this she is never without her stylish black dress hoodie. At times she also wears a pretty teal scarf. Her pants are pretty normal; just a pair of size 10 jeans along with her cream colored shoes with red and blue markings along the sides, they have black bottoms with a black music note along the side. She also needs to wear glasses; but always swaps them out for contacts. Elena also keeps her winter coat with her; at all times. It’s a stylish red coat with no hood; but when you’ve lived in Canada for so long you kinda get used to it.

    Personality: Elena is usually very happy ad nice; often complimenting everyone and being very polite. But she didn’t get her reputation as a cool kid with behavior like that at all times; she can sometimes be a little silly and of course a little rude. Her favorite insult is still idiot; but she can sometimes call you degrading or other large words like that. She kind of has a crush on cool boys and finds them downright attractive (Insert Dave Strider here). In her spare time; Elena likes to read dark fan fiction and draw, she also enjoys watching horror movies and other things such as this. Her favorite color is orange; and in this being said she always has something orange on hand. She hates heights; it has been downright noted that she despises being up high. She’s also not exactly fond of peanuts because of a particularly nasty allergy. She can be somewhat of a logical know-it-all sometimes; she loves to use big words that confuse people and is more of a logic than religion person.

    Elena also; well loves music, she more or less lives for music. She loves instrumental and even plays an instrument herself; it is known as a saxophone. Her favorite types of music are Solid Rock, Indie Rock and Alternative. She also strangely like lightand happy songs that have a bit of a darker meaning.

    Biography: Elena lived in a small town in PEI; her only company was her grandfather and her turtle; Caliya. And she didn’t have very much to do there; so she took to drawing, often she drew her own characters based of her imaginary friends. She had one real close friend; his name is Flint. He’s probably the nicest guy you’d ever meet; he always pretends to be cool even though he was the nerdiest coward at the school. Intrestingly enough; he also loved to draw and him and Elena got along great. Flint taught her how to Play the piano, she began learning how to compose beautiful songs; just like the ones she always heard on the radio.

    One day Flint actually moved away; Elena was crushed for well a day or two. Until Flint messaged her online; she was thrilled. The two spent their days Rping over the internet. Herself; being a libra, was Legislator Anavari and Flint being a Gemini, was The two headed best Caligraph.

    Elena had a very good life with her friends; and eventually began to develop her drawing even further. She also practiced more and more on her Saxophone; until the one day where she finally decided she was good enough. She enjoyed watching horror movies at this point in time; and became interested in darker fan fiction.

    Raiden, You haven't done the Biography. Still Pending

    Mariya Shidou, SU accepted.

    Spyrox Pikachu, do you think you could make your character male? If not, then choose a different type combination. I want the Space dude to be a guy (seeing as the time person is a girl.) Otherwise, you're accepted.

    Right, unless if Spyrox Pikachu changes to Male, NO MORE FEMALE CHARACTERS! I want an equal ratio of boys to girls.

    Oh, and I'm trying to think of a good place to do our chats (they will be very present in the storyline, especially seeing as there won't be any interaction for a while. I need something private. Can you do that on Pesterchum? That's my preferred option. If not, I'll use Xat.

    OK, I've renamed Elena as the "Heir of Thought". And she lives in the "Land of Wisdom and Mind".

    Actually, we're going to need a Seer... who'd be a better Seer than a Psychic? So the "Seer of Thought"?

    On a different note, seeing as you were too lazy didn't make your own, I made my version of each of your characters...
