This RP has been completed. Well done! ((RP thread is here.)) It is said that once every three years, a very special circus comes to Kanto's Celadon City to perform, staking their tent behind the Game Corner. Humans and Pokemon alike travel from all over the region to marvel at the fantastic feats; not to mention the unusual Alolan forms on display. Knife-throwing, tightrope walks, a freak show, and even chariot stunts, all taken to a new level by Pokemon helpers - this circus really has it all. But... this year, things seem just a little off. Tensions have always been high between the performers, sure, but the acts seem sloppier this year. People seem to be making an awful lot more errors than usual, even yelling at each other in the arena in a totally unprofessional manner. The ringmaster himself has started drinking during the performances, to try to calm his nerves. And when a high-stakes trick goes tragically wrong... could there be foul play involved? Will the culprit be discovered before they claim another victim? And, for god's sake, will someone please stop the ringmaster from drinking in front of the children? All will be revealed! Or not. Spoiler: Rules: PLEASE READ - For this RP, you must be willing to write at least two paragraphs per post. Please bear this in mind when applying. - You can RP as a human or a Pokemon - but if you're RPing as a Pokemon, don't expect to talk to humans. (You can still have human intelligence, and you can talk to other Pokemon, for... obvious reasons.) - All of the site rules apply. Let's not get banned! - This RP is for people 15 and over, because it's a murder mystery. While it's not dark and gory with entrails everywhere, one of my characters is going to drop dead. There will also be some swearing and alcohol (how much does depend on which suspects are more heavily questioned). - One character per person. I'm the exception, as I will be RPing various suspects for you to interrogate. - If you are RPing as a circus performer, you may have a max of three Pokemon, with two moves each. If you're RPing as a trainer, gym leader, police officer, or whatever else, you can have the usual six Pokemon, with four moves each. You cannot give any of your Pokemon the move Mind Reader. - Please write "nerdlord" at the end of your sign up form so I know you've read the rules.
