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.

[attr="class","boxybby"] sarya is IOVERA VERANI 's much more charismatic and charming and attractive and cool first cousin. when they were kids sarya avoided vera like the plague because she was "weird", but now she's matured and is actually pretty nice. she's very well put together and capable. she used to be a singer for a band known as covenant, but after her parents (iovera's father's brother and his wife) were killed in the eve city massacre while staying there for one of her concerts, she joined the resistance. her original pokemon were stolen and she has to acquire a new starter from coryn.
she rides a motorcycle. for the aesthetic. she likes a good combination of modern punk and witchy stuff.
other ideas for backstory: deceased boyfriend/other life partner? already wanted by plasma? childhood friend who joined plasma so now they have a really complicated relationship? really good at crocheting?
note: because she's meant to be something of a complement to iovera, her weaknesses should be something like iovera's strengths. also, while you may go to ava's lab to get her a new starter, i have a fennekin that i'd like her to have once she's created. another pokemon to shoot for could be a honedge. faceclaim
[b]TRANSISTOR[/b] - red, [i]SARYA VERANI[/i]
[attr="class","boxybby"] sarya and iovera would probably interact on occasion but she'll be free to mostly do her own thing. their relationship is a little... odd, but they do like each other, even if sarya makes iovera feel incredibly inadequate (she's beautiful, social, and she was a successful trainer before her pokemon were stolen). sarya worries about iovera a lot (and usually for good reason) and she's the one who gave her her quilava when it was a cyndaquil.

Please PM jello with any questions. Please post any threads needing modded here.
literally i just want a cute soft nerd girlfriend for RILEY PELLETIER im shameless and all of these are gonna be about potential SOs for my girls for no real reason other than i can. specifics are up to you, feel inspired by the face claim and choose some suiting details, run them by me first tho
NYX 's old flame, before they were turned into a pokemorph. a member of the resistance, though she disapproves of their more... terroristic side. i don't have a lot thought out for her, just that she's pretty strong and admirable, enough that nyx (ash, originally), fell in love with her.
probably feels a lot of guilt over ash's disappearance, but one thing to note is she never took the risk of rescuing them bc she knew it was a trap. won't tell them this, though, it'll be her dirty little secret. she'll meet them again and start the task of gaining their trust again and trying to "tame" them, and they'll still have a soft spot for her. it'll be cute, until they find out she essentially left them to die.
face claim is up to you, aqua is just there as a place keeper, though she's certainly an option.
[attr="class","boxybby"] Though she grew up in a relatively conservative family, that has never stopped her from achieving what she wants in her life. She has grown wealthy and powerful not by her inheritance, but instead by her own merit. Her potential under-the-table dealings with Plasma, of course, have assured that her future looks quite promising. Though she makes her fortune in the very legal business sector, that's not to say the occasional bribe to her local politicians goes nowhere.
[attr="class","boxybby"] This would, obviously, be one of Ophelia's grandchildren. You're not required to keep her faceclaim or anything, I just think Sae is the perfect hot young no-nonsense businesswoman. You're also not required to keep her last name since she is a grandchild, I just figured I would throw it out there to make the relationship obvious. She could be either Plasma or just a well-connected Neutral who just looks out for herself depending on what you prefer.
[attr="class","boxybby"] Riley's older brother, he was born to Team Plasma scientists and was a part of the reason Riley's guardian was killed (without his knowledge). Riley once looked up to him but now doesn't see much to look up to. He knew Riley's past lover and probably feels some guilt about the outcome, but mostly views this as a way to get Riley on his side of the world. He is very loyal to the Resistance and could easily be an Admin or higher figure among them. He is only cruel when he needs to be and this can show no limits, possibly having played a hand in Lukas' death.
[b]SENGOKU BASARA[/b] - sarutobi sasuke, [i]ashton madison arrington[/i]
[attr="class","boxybby"] For more information about Ashton, please check out Riley's biography, located in the mini-profile to the side. :) Ashton is five years older than Riley.
[attr="class","basiccharstats"]female / twenty-four / any alliance
[attr="class","boxybby"] No one knows what happened to Stella after she and Riley were separated through foster care. Maybe Ashton knows, maybe he doesn't. Stella is completely up to the person who takes her. She can be fragile and soft like her face claim, or she can be cunning and devious - the exact opposite. Ashton used to baby sit her when she was younger and her parents passed away when she was nine - three years younger than Riley.

[attr="class","boxybby"] If you want to know more about Stella, it's best to just ask me. :)
