This roleplay is going to be a non-canon, light-hearted, alternate universe collaboration between me and @Nygenn set in a medieval kingdom with royalty, knights, villagers, and a vast, beautiful meadow landscape to explore. Here, you will be roleplaying as gijinkas, or anthropomorphic Pokemon, or humans with pokemon traits, or whichever term you prefer, which allows characters to have a limitied set of special abilities based on what species they are, and is the main reason for this roleplay being non-canon; meaning, if you have a mainstream character you'd like to play as, you don't need to include this roleplay into their history the next time you join a different roleplay, and any events that transpire here is irrelevant to their original selves. The Kingdom of Suimera is a beautiful utopia where pokemon of all types live in harmony, although, to be honest there are some... Prejudice, against delinquent types such as Darks, Ghosts, and Poisons. But otherwise, it's a place worth visiting. The streets are paved with stones, and the town is neatly planned, with beautiful fountains in nearly every roundabout, bountiful shops and eateries to fraternize and splurge in, narrow alleys to take you around to gorgeous secluded locations that may be unknown to the rest of the world, a bustling marketplace where you can find most any good, a grand library, and the massive town square where festivals are held. Though be warned of the seedier areas in the west, known as Delinquent Town, where the Darks, Ghosts, and Poisons hold higher power. It is an infamous red light district known for theft, gambling, battling, and adulterous fun. Rumor has it, gang activity and illegal goods circulate there as well. On the outskirts surrounding the south and east of the town are where the farms lay, with acres of fertile meadow abundant with flowers through spring and summer to plant or raise livestock on, and lakes in the southeast. The kingdom is on high elevation, surrounded by a scenic mountain range covered in forests as far as the eye can see, with a narrow trail that leads out of kingdom borders. Rivers are abundant, flowing through farmlands, and the palace in the north, which is separated from the town by a strip of forest, and a winding trail to its gates. The palace is the pinnacle of the kingdom's beauty, with ivory towers and marble pillars, it stands tall and elegant for all to behold. Within its sturdy walls are a vast land containing a small town of itself; nucleated layers of housing for royal guards, and knights of the court, with the guards in the first layer, up the steps to the knights in the second, and finally, the palace in the third, and highest ground. With lush, rolling gardens, it holds a luxurious view of the entire kingdom from its elevation. Servants (including maids, butlers, chefs, and groundskeepers) reside in the mess hall within the palace itself. Within the count of weeks, a big festival and ball is being prepared in honor of the eldest prince's coming of age ceremony, and coronation. Farmers will be busy delivering farm produce, villagers decorating and setting up the town square, and servants, setting up palace. Crime activity has spiked significantly, sabotaging preparations for the ceremony, festival, and ball with all the theft and vandalism they are committing! Delinquent Town is under strict supervision by knights as a result. As are most Poisons, Ghosts, and Darks. Well, more than usual, anyway. There will also be a third plot point that will be revealed further along the roleplay's progression. This is mostly going to be a side roleplay for me, thus I leave all creative liberties to the roleplayers. Independent quests and story arcs will be greatly encouraged, although closely supervised by Nygenn and myself, and must revolve around and/or include the ongoing events of the festivity preparations (later transitioned into enjoyment of the festivities themselves), and thefts. And now, for the rules; You must read and be familiar with The Pokemon Roleplay Rules. You must be able to write at least 2 hearty paragraphs per post with proper spelling, grammar, capitalization, and punctuation. No legendary Pokemon or Fakemon anthropomorphs. Romance, violence, and adulterous activities are allowed, but within measure, given the nature of Charms. You must always consult either Nygenn or I when planning to venture into Delinquent Town, or the palace (if you are a villager or farmer). Otherwise, you are free and encouraged to venture anywhere you please. You are limited to only a maximum of two special abilities according to your pokemon species. (Ex. fire manipulation, flight, telepathy, etc.) The king and queen are off limits. If a player does not respond within 7 days of an interaction IC, other players are free to bypass said interaction and move on. If you feel you have complied to these criteria, then here is the character form: Name: Nickname(s): Age: Gender: Species: Occupation: Personality: History: Appearance: Clothing: Special Abilities: As an additional note: I shall be playing as the thief, while Nygenn will control the crown prince. Said characters will count as NPCs. If you have further questions, please feel free to ask, or if you're interested, post your form below. I'll probably make the actual roleplay thread once we have a considerable amount of players on board to ensure plenty of interactions amongst each other. Click here for the roleplay thread!
