So, a couple of more world building bits before you guys finalize your characters in your head (and before I send off some questionnaires)

Essentially... corporations run everything. Although pokemon are still a ubiquitous part of every day life, the over-urbanization destroying most of the region's wilderness has dramatically altered the practice of young trainers going off on an adventure. Now the adventure is at a corporately controlled premium, taking place on a digital frontier in a heavily broadcast professional sport, with trainers only being accepted at the behest of the controlling corporations. New trainers are thrown into a sort of “rookie league”, where they're to start with no pokemon, then are set to make up a team by choosing from pokemon at various locales across the competition. Those who do well tend to get drafted up to the majors, as it were, kind of like modern sports stars. Money... fame... challenge... money... (Money tends to be important when corporations control everything).

Pokemon battlers' trainer's licenses generally requires some level of aptitude, as well as a hefty licensing fee. Some common ways around this are: sponsorship, as smaller businesses can make a hefty return on a successful battler. Scholarships, as there are no public schools in corporation-land, and having a skilled battler attending your academy can make you look much more prestigious. And... rich parents. There are other ways, sure, but those are just some of the more common ones.

While pokemon are still important, the fact that people can just create one from nothing out of data while online has tended to lead to a “digital/real” dichotomy. Although the common school of thought has been that all these pokemon are alive, there has been a growing trend of people who consider pokemon that have only ever existed as data to not truly be alive, and... treat them as such, often deleting pokemon they don't feel are necessary anymore offhandedly.


If you've got any questions, feel free to ask. I'll try and get some character sheet PMs sent out in the next day or so.

Super Metroid - By Red Silvers (VLP): I think it's safe to say at this point, that Samus ain't leaving her suit once Red Silvers finally gets around the finishing this game.

Fantastic Dizzy - By Red Silvers (VLP): Fresh off his recent run of Super Metroid, Red Silvers tackles yet another, err... classic? (Egg-scuse me for being confused about Red Silvers' next choice.)

Pshaw.

Cran and I both like(d) Gaiden more than the Main PokeRP...thought that's probably because being a player is more fun than being a GM.

Hokay, I sent out character builder PMs.

...but I might very well have crunked up the CC line, since that shit is confusing (technology is hard!), so if you're expecting one and didn't get it, gimme a heads up. Or possibly a smack upside the head.

/heads up

You should probably resend it to each person individually to be sure they all got it.

...So, like, I've totally putting off filling out my questionnaire due to laziness and character's block, which is like writer's block, only it's for making a character.

I'll get to it eventually, I swear.

I actually have the exact same problem. I get to the "What type would you be" question, and can't think of anything.

I think we all know which was the best Pokémon RP.

Well, here's an idea. We just go ahead and start, and you guys can jump in whenever you get finished.

*tears well up*

But...but... what about the Main-- *shot* tongue.gif

Anyways, my interest is piqued enough to say "Send me one!" I'm always up for something new and interesting.

The last question? Why, that's the easiest one! Surely it can't be hard to articulate your love for Devon! tongue.gif

Sent one your way.

The preproduction is still going, at... a less than steady rate. But if it's not ready by august (I hope it doesn't take that long), I give y'all permission to internet flog me.

August? That's two whole months away! Internet flogging should be pushed up to July, while August takes the real-life flogging position. biggrin.gif

Greetings, trainers! I'm All-Pro Box Admin Einstein, but I'm sure you already knew that. It's getting close to the Opening Day for your Minor League, so I'm gonna' be here every day profiling your competitors and other facets of the competition as we build up to the beginning of the beginning!

There's some exciting things waiting for you in Devon's Virtual World this Season, so if you haven't sent in your Official Devon Trainer License Form™, now's the time to do it! (Yes, that's right, I'm talking to you.)
