Talk Amongst Yourselves
Here is where we can discuss the route the journey will take, what we are going to do about a character that dropped out, and just general discussion so we can get to know each other! I know I put a lot of work into this RP and it might seem intimidating, but I still want it to be fun!

This area is not for reservations! The “Reservations” thread is! Duh!

Just a quick question for things and things, how are the villian-y forces going to be managed for the plot? Or will it mostly just be you (River), and us playing it by ear? Just wonderin'.

In other news, how was everyone's new year? Mine was fairly uneventful. c:

(Also, I'll be working on my character today on my relatively short flight to Taipei. It will be done. Definitely. )

That's a good question! So what I was thinking was that I might play the the "villian-y forces" (so to speak) at the beginning of the RP. Ya know, I'll just write a bit for the big bad boss and just say generally what the team is doing at the time. Then, as the Six begin to travel closer to the island and maybe meet a member or group of members of Team Nightfall, they will become NPCs for any and everyone to play.

OR maybe once the characters are in, I'll ask if two or three people maybe want to play as Team Nightfall. You probably would not make a character, but when I post as the boss of Team Nightfall, the two or three others would post as the members of the team (which they would obviously be able to play multiple parts in).

Those are only two ideas off the top of my head, but if you have another idea feel free to let me know!

Anyways, my New Years Eve was pretty good. Went to a party at a high school friend's house. Not much else. I'm glad to hear that you had an uneventful one (considering that the eventful ones I heard about did not end well). Haha!

Heeeeyyy y'all.

Well, just a fair warning I'm sending.

If any of you live in the New England/Massachusetts area, then you know what I'm talking about. We have a national weather warning. Massive snow. They say up the 14 inches. Well, I must have the worst power providers or something because whenever one of these storms rolls around, we always lose power.

Its annoying as all hell, but there's nothing I can do about it...

I'm almost done with my charrie, I've just got the history to fill out and I'm done.

Well, Star out for now. Talk to y'all later.

Hehe... sorry, I just love this gif...

@Starlight: I feel ya. I'm back in NY and we're already in for quite a bit. I came back to school a bit earlier than everyone and I regret it. Haha! I'm from Honolulu so... I'm not so used to the cold... xD I'm afraid to admit that I love that gif too.

@Persona: I feel ya there. First time I was actually in the snow I nearly cried. Hahah!

Hey there guys! My internet was down for a bit... yet again (this happens a lot when I'm at school). So I was on my phone for a while. But now I'm finally back on my computer and I can post in the OOC again! Huzzah!

Anyway, I'm looking through the CS's that have already been sent in and I'm going to be sending another round of messages to most of you that have sent in a character.

However, I'd just like to say some things before I do that and I'm really not sure how to say this without sounding like a complete jerk... So, here goes nothing. I absolutely do not want to discourage anyone from joining. I know that this is an RP based on Pokemon, of all things; however, one thing I must say is that this is is a literate RP. I tagged it like that and I put it as the 7th rule... Although it's become apparent to me that no one reads the rules anymore (I'll get to that in a second). I'm not asking for full essays for the history or personality of your character. As you can see, the personality of my own character is only the length of a couple of paragraph when you put it all together. But please, if you do not feel up for elaborating a bit on your character, then this may not be the RP from you. This may not be the case for some GMs, but for me, your CS is a reflection of your writing. Again, I know I sound like a jerk and a snob (look, I'm not a novelist either) but please, if you don't think you'll be able to write at least two paragraphs (and a paragraph does not mean one or two sentences...) per post OR if you know that you won't be able to handle a literate RP, then please do not make me have to feel like a cold-hearted person by removing your character. :\ I really hate doing that. I want people to realize it themselves and not walk away feeling like they're a horrible writer.

Another thing that I'm going to address is the fact that there are a few people that have just blatantly not read the rules. I know that there are a lot of them. I actually tried to take quite a few of them out when I was typing the introduction up because I realized how long the rules section was getting. So all I ask is that you at least skim the rules. Maybe read the first sentence of every rule. That's probably all you have to do -I say probably because if a rule is longer than the others it probably means that it has a bit more information in it. Then, if you have a question you can go back to that rule and you read the whole thing.

I'm just getting a bit angry that there are some of you that clearly did not even look at the rules (and for some it's clear that you didn't even read through the intro). I mean I understand skipping over the rules when they don't have a "password" that you need to know, but the intro? Seriously? You just saw this RP and decided to reserve a character? That's just not nice to me or other players that are excited for this to be a good RP. I'm sorry... I really needed to get that off of my chest because that just irks me so much. I put quite a bit of time and work into this RP and I will not accept a character if you didn't read the frickin' INTRO.

I'm rereading what I just typed and I sound like such a hard-ass, mean GM, but I don't mean or want to be. And I really don't want to scare anyone off. It's just that I put a lot of work into this and I've even got some plans for where I want the story to head in the future. I've taken too much time on this to accept people that are not going to give some effort back. And I understand, real life comes first (mine does as well), so I'm not asking you to devote every ounce of your effort and fiber of your being to this silly Pokemon RP, but please, I'd really appreciate if effort would be put into this by everyone in this RP. Again, this does not apply to everyone that submitted characters and I don't want anyone to feel singled out. It's only some (and I've gotten at least 2 or 3 characters from people I've never seen before that didn't even create trainers... o_O Like... Wut.) and I will let you all know much more privately what I'm talking about via message. Just please, don't take it personally and don't feel bad if you don't think that you can do what I'm asking.

I hate yelling at people because I want this to be fun, but I'd appreciate it if you'd just all look over the intro and the rules. Remember: all you pretty much have to read is the first sentence of the rule! I counted and there are something around 32 rules. That's 32 sentences (maybe some extra for certain rules). If you're not going to read 32 sentences, then... I don't even know... Even if you are one of the people that didn't read the rules, I'm really not angry (I was a little annoyed before, but not mad). And I'm not going to kick you out of the RP or hold a grudge if you stay in the RP. Its just that I really need to see a little bit of effort. If you can understand what I'm trying to say...? Trust me, I'm not angry! ^-^ You're all lovely people!

Aww geezum, that was an interesting read! xP

Hey, I don't think you were being mean at all.

But what you wrote made me go back and check the rules again. Inside my head all I could think was "Omg, what if I did something wrong?! Orororororor I broke a rule my accident!" And then I started eating cookies while re-reading the rules.

I feel better now. ^-^

Oh and...

Image

Let me seduce you...

xPPPPP

Now I'm all hyper on cookies. Yummy-num-nums!

Oh, and sorry for taking so long on my CS. I'm really weird because I can type up to 52 words per minute, but sometimes I just can't form coherent and/or sane thoughts to write down. I'm a fast type-er but slow writer. Good job, Star! -gives self a highfive-

Well, none the less, I am almost done. But Star, you've said that like six times... >.>

The fact that I'm almost at a 2,000 word count frightens me... I spend way too much time on this site. xP

@Starlight: Haha! That gif.... It's amazing. And I really appreciate you going back and reading the rules... but maybe no more cookies for you. xD

No worries with the slow writing, that's pretty much me every time I write an essay/lab writeup. Haha! I always write it super fast and then I go back and I'm like... "wait what was I trying to say here?"... oh and "why did I even write that there?"... and "I think I repeated my self seven times in that paragraph". And it only gets worse the faster and later I try to write it! Haha... Anyway, to summarize, it's fine and completely understandable!

You know you're only making me more excited to see your character! Haha! I shall patiently await the day that you submit her. xD
