Discussion in 'Pokémon Role Play Discussion' started by RenzFlintrock, Sep 29, 2019.

  1. Welcome, everyone, to the Astral Plaza Grand Exhibition! During this event, Pokémon travel from all around to show their skills, from live preformances, to baking contests, to invention exhibitions, to fun games and battle tournaments! Come join us, and show what you can do! Participants and entrants can sign up here, and general admittance is free! Just sign up below!

    Personality

    Rules!!!

    This is an all-Pokémon RP, so no humans or PokeHumans, please.

    Please, keep cussing to a minimum. There are many, many words in the English language, and there is almost never a reason to use a cuss. I don’t mind one or two very minor cusses if the character is feeling very strongly, but otherwise... no.

    Please be respectful of other RPers. They have their own feelings, and their own plans. So please don’t get angry if something doesn’t go the way you want it to, this is a collaborative game.

    NO LEGENDARIES

    Romance is perfectly fine, but please keep it to a hug, or a kiss.

    To assure myself that you have read the rules, please type: (Star Swirl) somewhere in your bio.

    You may have multiple characters. I will set a limit eventually. Please check with me if you plan to do more than two.

    Please keep your characters at a decent level of power. I don’t want the RP ruined because one person goes over 9,000.

    To ensure that you have read the rules, please say your character’s favorite gemstone at the bottom of your bio.

    If you want to have a battle, I suggest you determine beforehand who will win. This isn’t a rule, just a suggestion.

    I may add more rules in the future, as I see fit.


    Finally, this is a work in progress, and I would love to hear any suggestions! I have only a vague plan at the moment, and with your characters we can arrange the events to better suit all players. If you have any questions, please ask me!

    Also, feel free to add anything you want to your bio.

  2. You know me too well...

    Name: Eve
    Age: 16
    Species: Eevee
    Gender: Female
    Sexuality: Straight
    Personality: She's got quite the rebel heart, and never backs down from... well, anything. When she sets her mind to something, she'll get it, come hell or high water. She can be very sassy, with a sarcastic sense of humor. However, beneath her brash facade, she has a heart of gold.
    Appearance: She wears a lavender-colored scarf around her neck.
    Reason for attending the Exhibition?: She thought it sounded fun.
    Other: Her favourite gemstone is her birthstone, amethyst.
    She has a combo move she likes to use to be flashy. In the move, she uses Sparkly Swirl and Swift at the same time. She calls it "Star Swirl".

    Name:
    Tiara
    Age: 18
    Species: Riolu
    Gender: Female
    Sexuality: Straight
    Personality: Unlike the rash and hot-headed Eve, Tiara is level-headed and calm. She doesn't take nonsense from anyone, not even Eve. However, don't be fooled, as she can really make you miserable if you anger her.
    Appearance: Blue scarf identical to Eve's
    Reason for attending the Exhibition?: Eve dragged her along.
    Other:
    - Aquamarine
    - Star Swirl
     
  3. Hm... for some reason I totally didn’t expect exactly these two characters.... hmmm...

    How many RPers do you want before we start? I can tag some peeps.
     
  5. Go ahead and tag as many as you want. I definitely won’t start it until both Playful has a bio up, I have a bio up, and we have at least 5 RPers.

  6. M'kay.
    @Sparkling Emolga (I think you've got quite a few Pokemon OCs that would be perfect for this.)
     
  7. Sparkling Emolga

    Sparkling Emolga Previously Lightning and sparklight

    I think i will join soon, i will just make the bio for my characters.
     
  8. Okey doke. Just in case I somehow didn’t make it clear, this is basically a combination of a fair and a talent show. Food, games, shows, exhibits, battle tournaments, food stalls, crowded restaurants, porta potties... the usual.
     
  9. PlayfulFox47

    PlayfulFox47 Previously PlayfulShinx47

    Max of characters? I mean, I have multiple characters who canonly lives in the area.
     
  10. I actually said in the rules that I don’t have a limit yet, but to just ask me about any characters past two. I know you can handle way more, so you can have a lot, as many as you think you can handle.
     
  11. PlayfulFox47

    PlayfulFox47 Previously PlayfulShinx47

    Yeah, I can handle a lot (Thinks back to Eli in Dragnos where I control most of the characters) I'll make the bios after I finish my post on the RP that I was thinking back to. (Hint of characters that I'm going to play: My normal duo, and a leafy boy. Rest I'm just going to think about.)
     
  12. PlayfulFox47

    PlayfulFox47 Previously PlayfulShinx47

    What is the max number of moves?
     
  13. Well, I don’t have an exact limit, just use common sense. If I see a problem I’ll alert you. If you want an exact limit, maybe 7? You can go past that if you want, I trust your judgement.

    Personality: Kind and caring, she tries to help others who are having a little trouble with almost anything, though otherwise she normally doesn't talk too much. Despite her calm and helpful personality most of the time, it's easy to get on her nerves, in which case they're in for fight for sure.
    Appearance: Fluffy and has with slightly softer spiky fur compared to an average Jolteon, with bunches of yellow and orange flowers on her back.
    Reason for attending the Exhibition?: She thought it was a good place to try and open up to others some more and to possibly practice baking a bit too.

    ...I really need to stop editing in my bios because I can't wait for someone else to post...
     
  18. @PrincessPika~chan accepted. I would suggest that Covet and Fake Tears don’t really fit her personality at all, but I don’t mind as long as you can justify it in-RP.
     
  19. Well, well. It seems I have found time to post. However, may someone enlighten me on whether Pokemon generally have the same life-span as humans, or not. That would be most appreciated.

  20. In this RP, yes. We will use ages equivalent to how they would be in human years, for example if a deerling is just getting their first job they could be 15-21 or something.
     
  21. Well then @RenzFlintrock , here is my character, as promised. Please tell me if anything is off or needs changing.

    Name
    : "Ol'" Shaymus

    Age
    : 71

    Species
    : Hoothoot

    Gender
    : Male

    Sexuality
    : Asexual

    Moveset:
    Echoed Voice, Protect, Psychic, Psycho Shift, Roost, Synchronoise, Air Slash

    Personality
    : Ol' Shaymus is a very charismatic, generally being friendly and sometimes just a surly old 'hooter'. He is fond of listening and watching other people (not in a creepy way) and is the sort of person that most would go to for advice, or just friendly chatter.

    Appearance
    : (Take profile picture for reference.) Shaymus holds a finely crafted wooden staff in his right wing, which he calls "Star Swirl" or "Opal Istari". He almost never goes anywhere without it and uses it for all means of things. He has the common fur/feather lined chest that resembles a chestnut. His eyes are a darker and more deep-set orange than most others and his arrow like eyebrows protrude out of the corner of his eyes in a dark grey. His beloved hat, a stone grey crinkled old thing, sits perched upon his head and stick there even when appearing in precarious positions.

    Reason for attending the Exhibition?:
    He is a yearly visitor and sets up a camp and arena in which he offers to host battles, tournaments, performances or stories.

    Other:
    "Opal" "Star Swirl"

    Decided not to post Sunny's and Nightfall's bio here, though they live around the area. I'll do it later, but I got stressed trying to do all four at a time.

    Species: Leafeon
    Gender: Male
    Sexuality: Straight
    Moveset: Razor Leaf, Synthesis, Helping Hand, Quick Attack, Protect, Leaf Blade
    Personality: Alaf is a very passive Pokemon, preferring Pokemon coming to talk to him instead of him going to others. He is very insecure and is shy, though he is friendly to other Pokemon. Studdering at lot, this Leafeon seems like a coward, but when push comes to shove he will stand up against anything that threatens the things he cares about. Alaf is a bit of a geek. He is trying to get over his studdering problem. If you are a friend of his, he will not studder.
    Appearance: Alaf wears a white hat. He likes to wear it a lot. Other than that, he's a normal Leafeon.
    Reason for attending the Exhibition?: He lives in the area. Why not go?

    Fay

    Appearance: She wears a small messager bag. Other than that, she's a normal Ribombee
    Reason for attending the Exhibition?: Fay is a traveling storyteller. This is her job.
    Other: Amber

    Personality: Aisa is a friendly individual who cares very deeply for her friends. She loves her work, and Frosted Lum-Ade. You all have probably met her before.
    Appearance: Average for a Glaceon, although she is a bit smaller than average. She has a gold earring with a blue gem in her right ear, and often wears a fur cape.
    Reason for attending the Exhibition?: Much like Alaf, she is currently living in Astral Plaza, so why not attend? She will likely spend a good bit of her time at Four Seasons Café.

    Appearance: Average for an Altaria, but her wings are darker. Thus her name.
    Reason for attending the Exhibition?: Because her band is making its debut performance there, during he night concerts.
    Other: A starswirl Stone one fell out of the sky. It reminded her of her favorite stone, Quartz.


    Okay, y’all, I won’t be able to post the RP yet, so I’m the meantime if you have any suggestions about events in the festival, please let me know!

  30. There's still one thing, otherwise @ThAtGuY101 accepted.
     
  31. You're in. Star swirl was one of they keywords hidden within the rules, easy to miss if you didn't read the rules properly.
     
  32. I came up with a fun way to incorporate Star Swirl. I mean, Swift + Sparkly Swirl = Star Swirl makes sense...
     
  33. what type of geography will the astral plaza take place in; a big city or a small suburb? will it be a mountainous area, a coastal area, or something else?
     
  34. I just added the gemstone/Star Swirl as names for my guy's staff, heh.
     
  35. @ThAtGuY101 Astral Plaza is a city with hot summers, cold winters, fresh springs, and crispy autumns. It is probably the Pokemon equivalent of a large town, plenty of houses, parks, lots of shopping and dining locations in a downtown area... maybe similar to, say, Lumiose or Saffron. It's the largest city in the region. It is in a more forest/grassland environment, mountains a ways to the north, plains to the west, forest out a little ways to the east and south... if I remember my map correctly.
