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.

Discord Group Rules
Strictly no spam.
Do not advertise
ABSOLUTELY no Drama.
If people say that they don't want to hear it, believe us, they don't want to hear it. Some people don't want to deal with your drama, and if you must, complain or rant to someone that cares. If you bring it into the discord group you'll be kicked and banned. Tough love, bro.
Do not ask for mod posts. We're serious about this and it's totally not cool. There's a please mod board for a reason, so utilize that. If we're busy as hell, then posts are going to be slow. IRL takes precedence for everyone on Anrui.
Telling someone to kill themselves is NEVER okay. Even as a joke.
Please keep general chatter in the #general channel. Likewise, please keep #pokecord commands in the #pokecord channel.
Do not abuse or spam the #tag channel. You may tag someone once per post. Multiple tags per thread is fine, but only once per post. Only use it to tag members that you posted for them. Do not use it to ask for mod posts. Finally, if someone does not want to be tagged in the #tag channel, please respect their wishes.
Due to some recent reports of random discord group hackings, we are no longer making our link public. If you'd like to join our discord group, you are still more than welcome! Simply ask a staff member for the link.
