1.3.20. - Lots of links coming your way this month! First, please make sure to post in our Winter Activity Check by January 17th in order to make sure all of your characters are able to continue to wreck havoc on the region! Second, don't forget about the SW&SH Ticket Exchange! Of course, we also have a new promo where you can continue to earn prizes for all of your hard work. And lastly, this is the last month that you will be able to give your input on our Solo Beta Test and Volunteer Beta Test. We are working on our final changes to the systems, so if you'd like your feedback to be taken into consideration, please make sure to post before the end of the month!
Anrui's winter isn't as cold as some other regions' winters are, but that doesn't mean it's any less harsh for the natives! Pokemon who are not used to the cold are either hunkering down in a warm den, or out and about searching for scarce food. Don't let yourself get caught between a hungry pokemon and a tasty meal, otherwise you could end up an appetizer!
Welcome to the Anrui Region, where training is illegal. The Anrui Region is a desolate and lonely place, a once bustling region that has lived under the oppression of Team Plasma for many years. Plasma took over and outlawed training of Pokemon. Raids occurred and people and Pokemon alike were killed. Back alley gym matches were held, but people remain terrified to overthrow Plasma. Who will you side with, Plasma? Or The Resistance?
While Xiulan Xia may be new on site, she's carved her way into the spotlight for being a dynamic and well-portrayed character! Shrouded in mystery over the secretive events of her life, she is now painted with conspiracy that seems to follow her wherever she goes - ask her about it, we dare you. Cutthroat and hardened by an intense and passionate drive towards a linear goal, any thread with her is bound to heat up should your character so happen to cross paths with her. We can't wait to see where she goes from here!
"The sketches flew by quickly as Renly searched for the page he was looking for. It was a page with just one sketch, however the empty spaces had been filled in with watercolor paint. The scene depicted two cats - one shiny shinx and one glameow - curled together and napping. "I usually paint with acrylics, but I was testing some new paints my sister got me, and... uh, yea," his voice drifted off, realizing that she probably didn't care about what types of paint he used." - Renly Martell
"Well, obviously not all doors. I did knock on yours though, didn't I? I suppose all doors here are your doors though, so apologies for that one ... My mother wasn't a good teacher, nor an attentive one." - Nova Fuerst
When most people think of birthdays, they think of balloons, gifts, parties, laughter, and cake. However for some people, birthdays are not a day of celebration. The thread put back the stars, starring King Esten and Julian Miller, is not your typical birthday celebration. Instead, this thread takes the birthday theme and artistically turns it on its head, focusing strongly on the loving bond between two friends coming together to make the most of a tough situation.
The old building was once used as a haunted house, though in its death a new life has appeared. Namely, the life of Belladonna and her Pokemon. The place has a few of its old tricks laying about, so don't be too frightened when one of the fake ghosts pops out... or even one of the real ones.
Hidden away carefully, Roll's gym is nearly impossible to find through normal means. In the basement of the casino, one must enter, find an empty table in the corner, and ask for Roll. Upon doing so, you will be led past a fake wall panel, and into the basement of the building. Other than the complicated way to find it, Roll has a completely ordinary gym, and trainers from other regions will find the normalcy a welcome relief.
In the ruined city of Kain lies the amazingly fun Wacky World, or what used to be the amazingly fun Wacky World. These days, like the rest of the city, it is in pieces. Occasionally people still visit its ruins, usually on dares as it's rumored to be haunted. Strangely enough, you can still turn the place on and ride on the rides (should you dare) Even stranger? Howling can often be heard from inside the wacky gates.
Salvaged from the ruins of the once glorious Kain city and fittingly renamed for its savior the president, Cain city is a small, happy little town, the shining example of peace and prosperity that Plasma wishes to bestow upon all Anrui. There is no resistance in Cain City. Unnecessary propaganda posters and monuments cover the sanitized bubble of success. It even has a zoo, a lovely little zoo to display the wonders and horrors pokemon provide.
Kain City was once the capital of Anrui. During the years of Raising Kain, the city was torn to shreds in constant battles between the Resistance and Plasma. Eventually, the Resistance managed to gain control, and as a result, conditions in Kain became the worst they'd ever been. After suffering through drought, starvation, and overall dangerous conditions, the citizens began to riot, opening the doors for Plasma to take Kain once again.
Kain is now an unsafe place for the Resistance, and a moderately safe place for Team Plasma. However, the citizens have not forgotten the part Plasma played during the years of Raising Kain. Tread lightly.
