12.2.19. - A couple changes, coming your way! First off, just as a general reminder, if you need to exchange your SW&SH tickets, you can do so in the ticket exchange. Similarly, if you have a pokemon you'd like to switch to a Galarian form, or if you'd like to earn some rewards for your hard work, check out our December promo! Additionally, we've made a few seasonal changes around the site in regards to what all is available for purchase. Make sure you check out any and all vendors who have seasonal items or pokemon for sale! Along with the new season also comes new swarms spreading out over the region. And as always, don't forget about our Beta Tests - your feedback is critical to making a modding system that we can all enjoy! Check out the solo beta test here and the volunteer beta test here.
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.
goddammit i hate to give kaida more attention than your other characters but... hear me out on this one... her and AZURA KATO as roommates within plasma?? more of a recent development since azura only recently joined but they both have minor birth defects and are in the same age range
i also think even though azura willingly joined plasma it might be possible to make an exception for her because she quite literally can't make it on her own w/o pokemon, but that'd be a decision for kaida to make
Want to wait until after the event to set up the thread? Also why would kaida all of a sudden get s roommate? Maybe to watch her after what happened? Or they're just cutting down on housing.... If you have any ideas post in my plotter or in yours and tag me.
if they're roommates now it'd just be because blue's new to plasma and didn't have housing before... and then they put her in with kaida maybe like "haha you're gonna have to babysit this one because she can't remember ANYTHING" but it turns out kaida and blue actually get along pretty well? idk why kaida wouldn't have had a roommate before, maybe they just didn't really have anyone to put with her... or it's like when i was staying on campus at college and the person who was SUPPOSED to be my roommate just suddenly cancelled and i went half a semester with my own room.
starting the thread after the event starts good to me because things are pretty hectic right now. blue will probably badger kaida with a lot of questions about the ball because she wasn't there.
also they both have horsea now so they can bond over that
sounds good enough to me. Yes yes yes horsea bonding
I can see kaida getting a little annoyed with blue at first bc she has a very fast tracked mind and blue is sort of.... A space cadet. But I think eventually they'd definitely get along very well. Very good contrasts for each other. I think kaida would see her as a plasma member she can actually befriend and be like wait they're not all bad?
Okamoto Kaida and Zeus still need to eventually plot together. Her old friend has been through a lot recently and it might be refreshing to see another familiar face, also open up some interesting conversations as well. Even if he's ex plasma.
Then there's Enzo and Khat. My excuse for his disappearance was that he was injured. A simple, boy thing really. Fell down the stairs and fractured his arm. His dad made him stick around the house more often so he'd be safe cause. y know. they live in Hyo
I'd say Khat and Abe, but I'm not sure if Abe is coming back yet c:< It's a nice hateship
Daisuke and Kaida may work out for a good plot as well, considering she's met his little brother, and has a feather that he had. The same feather he said he gave to some kid a long time ago when his visits took him to Blackthorn. She'll fit the description to the tee, and as long as she's careful about her status in plasma. I'd highly doubt she'd admit to being a spy to Daisuke so soon. (Also, if you want a Tyrunt for her, lemme know. I can have Zeus give her a tyrunt egg. I have one that can be bred at some point.)
Talutah, if all goes well when he gets accepted, would probably have an easy time talking to Jack(son). (Also where did we end up on that BA thread? Lol, I can't recall precisely where we ended up at.)
I'm looking at Jackson Jensen and I notice that This Boy Needs Friends. While Parhelia isn't a very good friend, she is definitely somehow older-younger than him and could pass as his grandma if need be. Friend and unlicensed guardian are basically the same role, right? I think Parhelia would also find it amusing that this child somehow makes her feel younger with the fact he is even less accustomed to modern life than she is.
also he needs a house. he's on the street? unacceptable. you buy that sweet boy a base as soon as possible so he can have a roof over his head.
I need to prioritize between my army of characters who needs a base first
Anyway, I love the idea of them being like weird old-young duo. I imagine him playing his trumpet down the street from her shop, and then when the cops come (bc he's not old enough for a permit) he bolts to her shop and just dumps the money in the cash register ("i steal all my food anyway")
