Ask to Join [Pokemon: The Veraheros Hallow's Festival!]

Discussion in 'Pokémon Role Play Discussion' started by zodiac_queen, Oct 27, 2019.

  1. Dear ________,

    It's time to come together to celebrate the biggest occasion of year!

    On Veraheros Island, an island on the southern coast of what would be Kalos in this universe, is usually quaint and sparsely populated. However, it comes to life in what would be October in the Pokemon world, hosting the gaudiest event of the colder months. The Hallow's Festival- Pokemon from all over the world come just to see the wonderful sights of the annually hosted festival, with every event you could think of to fit the spooky month. Scary haunted houses, costume parties, corn mazes; everything you could ever think of! And with the date of the Festival rolling around once more, it is time to celebrate this wonderful holiday.

    The town prepares one month in advance- hotels, markets, and everything else have worked hard in order to prepare for this week long festival. While some come to the festival for old time's sake, others go for the scares, or even to find the time of their lives. And this year, you've decided to attend! Take a boat or fly yourself to Veraheros Island to enjoy the time of your life.

    --

    An advertisement- more or so an invitation- to attend the Hallow's Festival. Join the spooks or get brung along against your will- it's up to you what happens!

    -----------------
    Basic Information

    - The Hallow's Festival lasts a week, and a week only.
    - It's very cold in Veraheros during the festival- bring your warm clothes!
    - However, even though warm clothes are supported, a lot of Pokemon like to dress up as witches, ghouls, etc.
    - The main town for the festivities is Historiara Town, which has a vast landscape with different hotels, restaurants, and other amenities.
    - The Hallow's Festival doesn't have trick-or-treating, but essentially is the same as Halloween. But Pokemon.
    - All Pokemon that live in the town usually have careers in the hotel business or the restaurant chain business.

    -----------------
    Rules
    1. Keep in mind everything stated in Pokecharm's rules for role-playing! I'd advise you read over the document.
    2. No Mary-Sues/Gary-Stus, they make role-play no fun and generally can give people headaches.
    3. This is a Pokemon rp, so we will be playing in a more civilized world without humans. Things in our worlds still exist, but think of it like PMD but more modern.
    4. Just a polite request. Try to have decent grammar/punctuation. Sometimes we make mistakes but it's no fun if a role-play is just one-liners and nasty grammar mistakes in words no-one can understand.
    5. You have a limit of 3 characters, but can request more if you really think you can handle it.
    -No Legendaries, Ultra Beasts, Mythicals, or anything or the sort, as they are simply too much of a hassle for somebody like me. Instead of those type of Pokemon, many stronger Pokemon that are more normal are permitted for use.
    6. Keep cursing to a minimum. It's not like I really care, but at the same time this can't be a festival of 'curses' (ironic).
    7. Love is allowed, but it's not really the main focus of this particular rp. It's more about friends and spooks, if you catch my drift?
    8. Have Fun! This is just a small rp before the spooky day comes up.

    -----------------
    Character List and My Characters

    Name: Lana
    Age: 19
    Species: Glaceon
    Gender: Female
    Personality: Lana is an odd case. While she is reserved and rather introverted, she has well-developed people skills and has no trouble in social situations. For an introvert, Lana is naturally social, and has an easy time interacting with others. She is a true altruist; engaging in her work with enthusiasm and kindness. However, she is often meticulous to the point of perfectionism, always striving to do the best she can in her work. Even if doing her best work exhausts her. Lana also has a tendency to dismiss herself and most compliments.
    Appearance: Lana is your typical Glaceon, with pointed ears and a ice head-piece in the middle of her head. Blue fur with darker diamonds- you get the jist. However, she has longer legs and paws, along with a somewhat larger headpiece. She also has a long tail, which helps with holding things and keeping her balance. Lana usually wears a small bowtie and a white long-sleeve for work, but when she's off she enjoys a scarf and a black sweater, as it's rather cold on Veraheroes Island year-round, even for a Glaceon.
    Why Are They Going to the Festival?: Lana lives on Veraheroes Island and works at a diner as a waiter for most of the year. A special haunted mansion themed restaurant opened by the diner she works at during the week of the Hallow's Festival.
    Name: Eve
    Age: 16
    Species: Eevee
    Gender: Female
    Sexuality: Straight
    Personality: Bold and a touch hotheaded, Eve has a burning spirit that can't be contained. She's always making sarcastic quips and has a dry sense of humor, and is filled with charisma. She's fun to be around - well, most Pokemon think so.
    Appearance: She has the appearance of a normal female Partner Eevee. She likes wearing a small pink rose at the bottom of her left ear.
    Why Are They Going to the Festival?: For fun, and to "help" Tiara loosen up.
    Name: Tiara
    Age: 18
    Species: Riolu
    Gender: Female
    Sexuality: Bisexual
    Personality: Calm and collected, Tiara balances out Eve's brash personality - almost. She's very well put together, although will be your worst nightmare when provoked. She's Eve's best friend, although she does think Eve is a little bit... exasperating.
    Appearance: She wears a blue scarf around her neck, and the blue portions of her body are slightly lighter in color than a normal Riolu.
    Why Are They Going to the Festival?: Eve dragged her there. She still is a bit miffed about it.
    Name: Colin
    Age: 20
    Species: Gallade
    Gender: Male
    Sexuality: Straight
    Personality: Colin mainly comes off as a carefree and laid back individual, he tries to be kind and supportive to whomever he can but is never afraid to talk back to anyone. He can sometimes come off as a 'go with the flow' kind of person but is never afraid to say no to anyone... even if it would come out bluntly. One of his favorite things to do is relax in high, unusual places like up in a big tree.
    Appearance: Just looks like your everyday Gallade. He wears a Black cloak with a large White fur mane for the cold weather.
    Why Are They Going to the Festival?: The oldest of his three older sisters insisted he go out and have some fun after all the work he did at home... and because it seemed nice to see his favorite and only cousin who works at one of the stores there.
    Name: Amelia
    Age: 17
    Species: Mightyena
    Gender: Female
    Sexuality: Straight
    Personality: The mean personality that other Pokémon often associate Mightyena with doesn't apply to Amelia. She is a warmhearted, fun bundle of fur. She loves hanging out with friends and will protect them from douche bags that don't know their place. She hates when people are a little scared or a little intimidated by her when they first meet her.
    Appearance: The black fur is a little more washed out than any other Mightyena's, getting a dark grey colour. Her eyebrows are a little more thin and her claws aren't as sharp. Since it is cold she will wear a thick purple hoodie and with magenta coloured fur on the hood.
    Why Are They Going to the Festival?: She wants to make new friends, since her old ones just moved far away and she doesn't want to keep going back and forth to their places and back to hers.
    Name: Lana
    Age: 19
    Species: Glaceon
    Gender: Female
    Personality: Lana is an odd case. While she is reserved and rather introverted, she has well-developed people skills and has no trouble in social situations.

  2. This looks interesting, I should ask that when we make char appearances, should we add their costume for the party as well as their casual clothing (provided they wear any)?
     
  3. Provided if they wear any costume, or any accessories/full on clothing, I would suggest placing that in. Although, if you would prefer only to describe it (the costume) when needed in RP, I would be fine with you doing either.

  7. I want to join!
    Hope this is okay...

    Name: Olivia

  8. Both are approved!
     
    Tudor21G and Red Gallade like this.
  9. The RP will probably start when we have a few more people.
     
  10. Name: Grace
    Age: 17
    Species: Snorunt
    Gender: Female
    Sexuality: Bisexual
    Personality: She can come across as very shy upon first impression due to her looks and accent. If appearances are deceiving, however, Grace's could pull a fast one on a Zoroark-- underneath that blanket of a cloak and that teeth-chattering stutter is a Pokémon with a curiosity of steel. Once she's past initial introductions, Grace is friendly, pragmatic, and eager to learn new things. She gets along best with Pokémon willing to put up with frequent questions and her wandering off to look at interesting things, but she'll make an effort to stick by someone she knows well. She's a little homesick right now, but hopes the festival will make up for it.
    Appearance: A mysterious shape hidden by a large, triangular shawl. Grace's only visible facial features are her blue eyes and shivering teeth. Her yellow cloak has an orange edge on each tassel, and she wears an additional cream scarf. It's unclear if this is because she actually needs it, or if she's just getting in the spirit of things. She often pulls out a notepad from somewhere within her cloak to take notes.
    Why Are They Going to the Festival?: She's a cross between a journalist and a tourist. Grace comes from a thriving village waaay up north that's always interested in news from elsewhere, so she travels to interesting places and brings back tales of wonder. She picked Veraheros's festival because the chill reminded her of home.

    Oh I love themed RPs like this. Is Grace alright? Let me know if there's anything I need to change!
     
  11. Grace is perfectly fine and hereby approved! One more person and we can get this show on the road!

  12. Name: Sophie
    Age:
    16
    Species: Buizel
    Gender: Female
    Sexuality:
    Personality: Shy and quite easily scared, but can be friendly when she has to be. To put it simply, nearly never.
    Appearance: Has a black coat, pink scarf, and black boots. You'll never see her face under the scarf, since it's always wrapped over her mouth.
    Why Are They Going to the Festival?:
    She's been going for years and it feels wrong for her to miss a year. She does live here, after all.
