It's only SM and Lost that are left...
11th December 2012, 1:14 AM
I'm still working on my post ...
*Has not motivation, but is close to being done*
11th December 2012, 1:30 PM
I've been waiting too. But If everyone is like me, then its finals week, and their mind has been elsewhere.
12th December 2012, 2:27 PM
Hey guys ... Sorry about not being here, but I've been busy with my exam results coming soon
and playing Dishonored (which is in no way related to the next test) and what not ...
So, anyway, I have news. WE ARE NOT ABANDONING THIS RP. And SM is officially booted - it's been almost, what, three weeks? And I am here with cookies! Or in other words, more plot.
The second test will be a test of Strategy. Essentially, it's a one-sided stealth challenge, and the odds are most definitely not in your favour. You will be put in a large area of some sort, slightly relating to your host Entity's type (a graveyard for Giratina, a stone castle for Regirock, an underground power station for Zapdos ... get creative!), filled with trainers. Your task is to get from point A to point B, without being seen or leaving any traces of yourself behind. If you are seen by a trainer, YOU MUST BATTLE THEIR RIDICULOUSLY OVERPOWERED UBERPOKEMON, for example, Slaking or Hydreigon. Which will most likely lead to a OHKO. Oh, and you're allowed to use your Pokemon's powers to help you.
I'm giving you a lot of scope for improvisation here, so go ahead and show me what you got. This can turn out either insanely suspenseful or dull and lifeless. It's your choice!
12th December 2012, 3:36 PM
Wow, this is going to be fun.. LETS DO THIS!!!
12th December 2012, 3:41 PM
Slaking is not that overpowered. Truant. xD
I already went to the sky for the battle. Where would Ray send Tyler for this test? :/

*puts creativity goggles on* LET'S DO THIS MAN.
I've already got an idea for a corn-cob maze of a sort, where the world is like the rolling-log world of Animal Crossing, and there are secret passageways through the corn-cob, which could lead to anything, really. Evelina will be given a map of the maze, which will show what the maze will be like when it's flat with all the secret passageways (though not how they're connected) and trainers, not round. She'll have to find Uxie, whose location is also marked on the map. Good idea? Yes, I borrowed this from Professor Layton, like I borrowed from Inazuma Eleven in the first test, but... still!

Eeeks! Something to do~ hmmm.... what on earth should I use for Meloetta? Maybe... a doll house? And Meloetta can move the dolls? I have no clue...
20th December 2012, 7:21 AM
Hey, guys, I'm really sorry about this but I have bad news. I'm going out of the country for Christmas and the New Year and will be in Dubai from the 22nd until the 2nd of Jan. So what do you think we should do? Put the RPG on hiatus until I get back, shut it down? Any other alternatives? Let me know.
20th December 2012, 10:04 AM
Aw, that's too bad. But maybe we should wait to see if everyone is actually still interested in this.
20th December 2012, 11:56 AM
I'm interested, but is the RP going to survive that hiatus? >_>
20th December 2012, 9:29 PM
Hm..... I'm really interested, the plotline's great, people just need to post more often. So... I vote let's put it on hiatus.
21st December 2012, 12:09 AM
I did lose interest... I thought it would be more of a Jump in and go, not these stupid tests that give me writer's block... I vote on reworking the structure and put it on hiatus..
21st December 2012, 12:15 AM
Other things I have to do (in no particular order):
1) Finish my Shippers' Secret Santa presents
2) Draw some more sketches to decorate my dA page
3) Draw a humanised version of one of my Pokémon characters
4) Write a short story because I stupidly promised my friend to do so
5) Practise the piano and eventually complete the piece I'm currently learning for my Grade 7 exam
6) Try to find a mobile site where I can watch Inazuma Eleven GO Chrono Stone
7) Finish Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective
8) Play some more Paper Mario: Sticker Star
9) Read Jane Eyre over the holidays
10) Revise for the three Sciences and Chinese
11) Practise the viola and learn the three pieces for my Grade 3 exam
So... put it on hiatus, maybe?
21st December 2012, 12:34 AM
I'm glad you said that! I agree, the tests killed it.

I've been in a few, "Humans with the powers of Legendaries" RPs before, and most of them die before we even get the powers... >_>

Same with me, it died before most of us even left the building! Sometimes GMs are to busy, or it just is to boring and doesn't want anyone to participate anymore. Also, especially with RPG's that involve being in one location most of the time, or changes locations way to quickly, I've noticed those really tend to die often.

Don't worry guys... On seeing these comments, I've decided to do away with the third test (we can always explain it as lack of time).
Also, our RPG is no longer in the future, so hurray for the end of the world! :P
21st December 2012, 12:48 PM
Yeah, because with the world ending, I don't think they'd have time to
torture test their vassal anyway.
What are you talking about? The world did end. We were attacked and killed by vicious zombies. xD Did you know Heaven has Wi-Fi? That's how I'm posting this from the afterlife. xD
21st December 2012, 1:33 PM
Really? Heaven looks a lot like my house...

21st December 2012, 5:32 PM
I agree - one test was okay, but I really can't bring myself to write up another one.

Agreed. The test were overkill, (but I did have fun writing this second one. V.V I was transported to a Valconao. I am still interested and just waiting on someone to post so I know where we are going with this. Also, do we still have the powers now are no. You said we could use it during the second exam.
22nd December 2012, 7:28 AM
All right so we have three options currently:
1. Put it on hiatus and continue with the second test, and then get into the story
2. Put it on hiatus and continue with the story (ignoring the second test)
3. Shut it down
We'll be taking an informal vote here, which will be closed tomorrow afternoon in my time zone (around 6:30 GMT).
22nd December 2012, 5:02 PM
22nd December 2012, 5:05 PM
22nd December 2012, 6:52 PM
I'll vote number 2 as well.
