I'm an avid Roleplayer, easily inspired by things I see and play (as I use a lot of media).

As for my Roleplay Background and Experience (which I feel I should share for personal reasons), I have 18 years experience as a Roleplayer (2 of which were spent as a Moderator), starting on a Video Game based Roleplay website that sadly went under.

With that out of the way, let's see...any other facts? I listed the important ones...oh, yeah, pardon my humor occasional outbursts. Never was good with those, especially my jokes, my horrible jokes.

New Eve Island : New Eve Town


Surprisingly, once inside the town, the weather was calm, almost as if a storm's eye. While the purple clouds remained overhead, no flashing lights ever reached the ground, and the wind was balmy at the ground level. The town's streets were relatively comfortable. As he exited the alleyway, Crimson would see much of the town was finished being built, though a few buildings were still being erected, with their foundations surrounded by small crystalline pillars that seemed to be channeling energy into them, almost as if constructing the buildings out of the shadowy diamond material.

Several Trainers wearing light armor and helmets were found at key points in the town in pairs, while a few others patrolled alongside Bronzor or Minior solo or paired. The males wore a shadow diamond mail cuirass over a long-sleeved undershirt, along with pants, gauntlets, a barbute helmet, and boots with a super short heel. The females wore a shadow diamond mail cuirass over a sleeved blouse, along with a miniskirt designed in emulation of a Mega Diancie's "dress", opera gloves, a morion helmet, and thigh-high heeled boots with a modest heel. Each cuirass radiated the same shadowy energy to those who could sense it, and surely provided benefits to the wearer. Each Trainer bore different weapons made of the same shadow diamonds, carrying either a sword, an axe, or a bow and dagger, complete with arrows. Notably, each Trainer, given their height, seemed to be comprised of actual Trainers who may have been on their journeys or were still younger (a particularly good guess would place the majority between 16 and 26).

By the gates leading to the castle, heavily armored knights flanked the gateway, each armed with a lance and two Poke Balls. Their armor, too, was made of shadowy diamonds; an emulation of full plate armor that afforded complete coverage and looked well-fortified. No doubt the armor was providing benefits to the wearers. The knights seemed to be mostly older Trainers (likely 26+ on a good guess), given their stature and size.

Several apparent residents were out and about as well, mostly doing their own thing it seemed. Some even played with their Pokemon and did things Trainers usually did back in other regions. Several youngsters played basketball while their mothers gossiped; roadside stalls selling foodstuffs hawked their goods; a young girl chased after her Patrat. No one seemed to mind the armored Trainers in general. The Pokemon Center and Poke Mart were relatively calm and not busy, and the town was incredibly quiet overall. The walls seemed to provide a good measure of safety, and the sight of floating crystals tethered to obelisks mounted on the walls was common enough to be a likely reason for that safety. Occasionally, a Cryogonal or Starmie would float by, as if on patrol, and Cacturne could be seen from time to time in odd places, standing completely still.

The road to the main castle gate was relatively straightforward to follow, if quite open and exposed to view.

Eckels would receive a Rawst Berry sized piece of the structure, easily acquiring it. However, seeing this, the girl stepped forward, quickly extending her arms before her as a shadowy weave launched forth from them in several directions, mostly forming strands that were, in number, one for each of Radegast, Reggie, Salticidae, Eckels, and Liam. The weaves then engulfed them, attempting to trap them within a crystalline mesh cage that would prevent escape.

No doubt the mesh failed to affect Reggie, as his Ghost nature would prevent it from maintaining any effect, while Salticidae ducked to the side to avoid the attack.

Attacking us? Tee hee hee~! Not a great idea! Prepare to be stabbed, girl!


Bringing claws and stingers to bear, Salticidae looked ready to charge at the girl, though the girl readied a Poke Ball after firing the shadowy weaves.

Oh, it isn't an attack. Just...making sure you don't escape, more or less. I have some questions about why you're here, and why you're taking parts off of the lonely structure. Someone else owns it you know!


Her voice was very much matching to her appearance for the moment, a cute Lass through and through, though despite the youth, a sinister undertone was prevalent in it all.

Before anything further happens, I should introduce myself. My name is Aerys, and I'm a Trainer who likes smart Psychic-types and dislikes ne'er-do-wells!


Her expression then took on a sinister gaze.

Ne'er-do-wells such as yourselves. Heh.

Janice watched as Swampert was knocked out by the combined attacks. Huffing, she returned her fallen Pokemon.

This is fun, Melmetal!


Once more, her Melmetal entered the battlefield. It wasn't nearly as fast without the twisted dimensions helping it, a fact made clear as it readied a fighting stance relatively slowly.

Now, show Unfezant your Double Iron Bash!


The Melmetal attempted to set itself up to dish out two intensive strikes on the Unfezant, but there was enough time for the Luxray and Unfezant to make a move to end it.

4:00 AM : Castelia Central Area

It happened suddenly, a large portal would open in front of the fountain. About as wide as the fountain, and almost as tall, from it emerged dozens of Starmie and Minior, each Starmie flanked by two of the small meteors in Meteor Form. With no discrimination or warning, the Starmie quickly organized while each of the Minior began scattering pointed stones across the area that levitated once set.

Behind the quick setup, several soldiers emerged from the portal. The males wore a shadow diamond mail cuirass over a long-sleeved undershirt, along with pants, gauntlets, a barbute helmet, and boots with a super short heel. The females wore a shadow diamond mail cuirass over a sleeved blouse, along with a miniskirt designed in emulation of a Mega Diancie's "dress", opera gloves, a morion helmet, and thigh-high heeled boots with a modest heel. Each cuirass radiated the same shadowy energy to those who could sense it and surely provided benefits to the wearer. Each Trainer bore different weapons made of the same shadow diamonds, with the males carrying short swords and bucklers, while the females had two-handed axes instead. Notably, each soldier, given their height, seemed to be comprised of actual Trainers who may have been on their journeys.

They quickly fanned out in groups as they began releasing Pokemon, largely early adventure Normal and Fairy-types. Behind them, several heavily armored knights emerged slowly, each armed with a lance and a tower shield. Their armor, too, was made of shadowy diamonds; an emulation of full plate armor that afforded complete coverage and looked well-fortified. No doubt the armor was providing benefits to the wearers. The knights seemed to be mostly older Trainers given their stature and size. They too began spreading out, releasing slightly more advanced Pokemon of Rock, Steel, and Ground-types.

Then came the Trainers riding Corviknight. The females were similarly armored to their walking counterparts, but they had bows and arrows with them, alongside a lance stored on their backs. The Corviknight were about as intimidating as ever, especially to a region that had little experience with them. Sigilyph accompanied the Trainers as well.

Every group assembled in the Central Plaza as a preparation. Last to emerge was a young woman standing upon the back of a Steelix that rose up high, giving her a view of the city as she held a megaphone before her with a disheveled look. Adjusting her glasses, she began speaking.

Is this thing on...? Well... Let me introduce myself. I am Marcosha Qix. You can call me, uh, Marcosha Q... If it's easier... Well, anyway, on behalf of Crown-Princess Melaine Diancie, of the New Ruulan Empire, the seven days afforded with the additional grace day have all elapsed... So, as Castelia City has not been given hands between trad...uh, traded hands with, or been given to, the New Ruulan Empire, we will take it by force as part of this...war effort...I think... So, uh, make your best efforts in fighting us, I guess... I won't hold back... Or something... I don't know... Just...go... And die...


The Steelix roared as the woman became surrounded in some kind of shadowy aura, her eyes glowing purple. The woman then opened her book as energy swirled out of it to encompass all the Pokemon on the field that did not belong to the other soldiers with her. Quickly, a young girl in a simple dress joined her. Eyes glowing red, the girl ascended, as if flying, to stand atop Steelix beside Marcosha.

D-do not forget me! B-Boo! I am Mikhayu, and I'm c-coming for y-you! W-Where is the UPL leader? W-We shall hear your l-last cries!


Despite the front she tried to put up, she did seem a little timid, until her eyes began glowing a yellow-orange as her veil fell away. She began floating once more as a shadowy aura surrounded her as well.


The UPL is challenged by NRE Commandant Marcosha and NRE Commandant Mikhayu!

When seeing the signal to attack, Tremuloides took it, only to be stopped suddenly by one of the bridge girls.

CT-6 Populus! The Psychic Receptors are going haywire! Whatever is happening up ahead is scrambling them!


Tremuloides spoke in turn.

『tR  Σ  MULOID  Σ  S QUICK ORD  Σ  R STOP SHIPS.
b  Σ  GIN SHIP PRODUCTION   Λ  DDITION F  Σ    Λ  TUR  Σ  .

Immediately, the parts of the fleet that had begun advancing stopped, and the Starbase's space yard began producing ships that were more up to date. The assault satellites moved to adopt a more defensive formation as Tremuloides had the bridge girls continue to monitor the psychic assault that was being levied, and scanned for any other vessels on their other systems.
