07.02.20. - It's July, and we've got some links coming your way! First off, we have an Activity Check running throughout the month of July. Please make sure to post before August 1st so that your characters and threads do not get deleted! Secondly, our Summer Event is well underway, but there's still plenty of time for you to pick up some Event threads! Of course, don't forget to keep track of all of those posts you make in our July Promo in order to earn some prizes meant to help you stay cool in these warmer days!
It's officially summer in Anrui, and the heat is here to prove it! Pokemon are out in droves, all trying to find some relief from the heat. Be careful - they're a little extra testy during heatwaves, and you don't want to get caught between them and some refreshing shade!
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?
One of our most welcoming, loyal, and patient of members can be found in Bee - who has been a member for two years now! Always friendly and active in both OOC and IC spaces, Bee is often one of the first people that new members are greeted by and lends a face of familiarity and kindness to any of Anrui's frontiers. With immaculate detail to each masterfully crafted post he writes, as well as the memorable and relatable qualities of his lifelike characters, Bee is a joy to roleplay with and a treasure to Anrui. We're honored to spotlight Bee as our Member of the Month!
As hardened as she is fierce, Nell Stark is a wonderful example of when the extremities of Anrui's political climate are pushed too far on a breakable human mind. Protective of her ideals and morals to the point of defection, watching how Nell is portrayed adapting to the side of the enemy she was once factioned against through her front of snappy indifference is equally parts fascinating and ambiguous. We're happy to announce Nell Stark as our Character of the Month!
In our Thread of the Month oh, life is bigger, Desmond Winters has been in prison for a decade now for murder and procuring, having fully accepted his fate of rotting in the concrete box - that was, until Phoenix Delgado, head researcher of RIVER on the hunt for a new assistant intern, showed up one fateful afternoon. With Desmond's subpar interview skills and Phoenix's cutthroat choosiness, these two collide and find that the traits once considered to be undesirable by others in a professional setting somehow fit together like puzzle pieces.
"Women want me, fish fear me. As loud as it typically was, he had never grown used to the rush of noise - the absolute cacophony - that rushed to his head, every time he would catch small glimpses of ripples and mistakes within the fabricated realm which held him willingly captive. Glitches in the simulation during which the veil would be tattered, fluttering about in the winds of unknown change and what lied behind the wall. Welling inside of him, something was wrong. So entirely, entirely wrong; the same kind of wrong as when he was certain he had left the stove on, or hadn't locked his door. The same wrong that rendered the atmosphere dense and strange, though apparently invisible to his eyes. They had probably forgotten to have her change before being sent out to collect him. Or warn him. Or terrorize him." - Julian Miller, A[D]VERSARY
Despite the fact her brother is Marco, ground type loving Sisco was born to fight in the dusty, gritty desert. Her gym is simple: the abandoned Main Street. And like an old western show-down, only the fastest will win here. Don't let her cute appearance fool you either; when it comes to battling this girl is ruthless.
Named for the resistance's littlest gym leader, Sisco's saloon has all the features of a normal saloon of its days. From the expensive booze, the dusty grub, the bar fights and the very...gifted waitresses, the saloon is everything you could imagine and more. When there's a gym fight going on, most people eat outside to watch.
Juxta can be hard to find if you don't know where to look. The little shack appears empty, broken down with boarded up windows. His picture is stuck to a nearby tree, red lettering declaring him WANTED. The people in town whisper about him, and it won't take long before you hear he's a killing machine.
Kairo town is a sparsely populated ghost town near the Regirock Shrine. The only reason it's even considered a town is because of the gym leader, Sisco. Beyond that, Kairo Town isn't the most friendly place to be sticking around, just shops to do some shopping if need be. Her gym is in an old saloon, reminiscent of the wild west.
