Well boy howdy, did I miss this website. Anyhow, inspired by the setting of "Lord of the Flies," every participant begins with two Pokemon or less on a goverment steamboat that intends to take these young trainers to safety. Assuming our plot takes place in the future of the Pokemon world, times of advanced war are upon the regions, nuclear war, in fact. Young trainers have been stowed away on the boat, separated from their families, friends, and material possessions, and granted only a tiny government-issued suitcase and two unevolved Pokemon from home. However, something in the boat fails. An explosion will occur, causing the ship to sink, with all of the rp participants needing to get from the sinking ship to dry land. Thus, our desert island, where the majority of the rp will take place as we try to survive the demands of isolation from society, as well as each other. I'm no stickler for rules, but I do ask that you all shoot for responses that are at least four or five lines long. Also, as someone who's in school, this rp might get a little slow during the weekdays, but I won't give it up if you all don't! Swearing, violence, etc. are all inbound. Romance can happen, but as the general rules state, nothing too freaky. Boring introduction aside, here's your character formatting thingamajig, using the character I'll be rp'ing as an example. Name: Desmond Gender: Male Age (should probably be in the 8-14 range, but I'm lax): 13 Personality: Demure and mild-mannered. Like any kid, Desmond is really freaked out with the reality that he may never see his family again. Doesn't do well under stress, but he tries his damnedest if people are counting on him. Even if he's quiet, he likes people, and wishes he were better at making friends. Cries very easily, but his Pokemon are always doing their best to cheer him up. Appearance: Somewhat wiry, and about five-foot-six. His dark brown hair is in slight need of a haircut, but it stays in check with the red handkerchief he wears around his forehead. Desmond wears a plain orange tee-shirt that's about a size too big with some cozy grey sweatpants to match. Pokemon: Koda (Teddiursa) and Chelle (Taillow) Let's hope I'm not forgetting anything too obvious. Drop a character sheet in this thread, and once we've got a couple of people I'll go and make the real one. Viva la vie!
