Type it up, then! :D


I've typed up the intro post for Violet City now. I daresay we won't be bored at the start of the game :p there's a lot of things to do in this city (not to mention all the previous areas) and I hope some will take the opportunity to party up with other players, be it NPCs or RPers~


I thought some more about professions, btw. Here's what I've got. I'm not sure how to make a Fossil Hunter profession actually. perhaps it could be part of the Explorer profession, but I think it might just be simpler to let fossils be special rewards for quests or maybe even part of a storyline. Hmm, perhaps the Explorer could still play some part here though? If we implement, hm, uh... something shady... Aura! Yeah :D


- Alchemist (gather berries and herbs, making potions, vitamins and repels)

- Angler (can fish up stuff that most can't, and can use Super Rod)

- Crafter (gather apricorns and fashion custom pokéballs!)

- Breeder (take care of yours or other players' pokémon for a day or so and make them produce an egg. Still sounds creepy, uh.)

- Mechanic (gather scrap from nature and towns to fashion evolution objects, like Kings Rock, Sharp Claw etc.)

- Explorer (the only ones who can find elemental stones and who can somehow resurrect fossils with their, heh, aura :D)

- Tutor (teach moves that your own pokémon know, to other people's pokémon. Even if they shouldn't really be able to use that move!)


This list is still in the beta stage, I guess. Comments? I've tried to balance it so that not all players would rush to pick the same profession; I think players should only be able to handle one profession at a time btw. I hope Crafter or Angler doesn't sound too boring though :p Wouldn't you just love to be able to fish up a Squirtle, Mijumaru or Feebas, or invent your own new kinds of pokéballs? You should pick a profession that fits with your character - or perhaps totally clashes with them?

Well, I'm hopefully done now, barring anything that needs to be changed of course. I hope everything is in order, it was a bit late when I was finishing it, so I hope there aren't too many weird errors... Also, everybody else has such beautifully formated SUs, so jealous right now.
Real Name: Gavin Ellis

Real Age: 21

Real Gender: Male

Personality: A perfectionist - described as a person who demands perfection of himself or others. Many often joked that if you looked up that word in a dictionary, they would find Gavin’s name adjacent to that little blurb. It started at a young age, his perfectionism, probably a side effect of his acute OCD. His insatiable insistence, no, compulsion to do things a certain way. Whether it be a book placed just right on a shelf, or correcting himself (and others) mid-sentence due to a slip of grammatical inaccuracy. He often pushed himself so that this one foible did not become his sole defining trait as a human, but he struggled to overcome the already heavy reputation and stigma.

Teased and picked on as a child and his reputation preceding him in many social situations, Gavin never developed the “normal” conventions that many garnered from childhood onward. Socially introverted and a bit callus when approached by others. From his experience, people only try and talk to him to further tease or insult him. Even if people try and get to know him out of genuine personal interest, he secretly suspects it's just for them to later cast aspersions. He works fine with others in a business setting, especially if he were in charge, but he never dare attempt to draw near to any besides his family.

This lack of normal social interaction, caused him to lose himself to the worlds of video games, movies, or what have you. Here in these fantasy worlds, he could be whatever he desired; a hero, villain, morally grey, it didn’t matter. He would cast himself into the story and lose himself there. He is steadfastly serious and almost calculating in his actions. Not one for vociferous outbursts, Gavin stays levelheaded and even toned during situations where others may become heated. What he lacks in social and “street” smarts, he makes up for in general intelligence. Although not tested at a “genius” level, he is very gifted and typically not afraid to let people know when he is smarter than them. This lack of humility further compounds his already lacking social prowess and alienates him even more from his contemporaries.

It is hard to say if anyone could ever worm their way past all this, but Gavin himself isn’t very receptive to the idea. He truly does care for his mother and father, but nobody else has ever had such a profound effect on him in that he can accurately define “caring” for somebody. Maybe the reason he loves Pokemon so much and as a result MAO, is because of how well he gets along with real animals. According to him, “Animals don’t judge anyone and are always there for you.”

History: October 11th, 1991 - London, United Kingdom. The day Gavin entered this world, born to two loving and average in every way parents. His father, James Ellis, a system analyst and his mother, Samantha Ellis, a happy stay at home mother. His early childhood was fairly mundane as these things go. Samantha began to notice little idiosyncrasies that triggered some warning bells as he got older. These little indications led to a visit to a psychologist who identified him with his acute obsessive compulsive disorder.

In school, he was picked on mercilessly by his classmates and one boy in particular, Craig Murphy. Whenever he progressed in a grade, Gavin would wish that he and Craig would be separated by some stroke of luck. Craig moving, being held back, divine intervention by meteor strike, it didn’t much matter to him. This boy was one of just a few reasons he lost faith in people his age or strangers in general. Everyday, he would attend school, ace his work, take his beatings and rush home to his homework and gaming. He became an avid Pokemon fan, going so far as to EV train each of his monsters and enjoying the global battle scene to the best of his ability.

Nursery, Primary and Secondary. This cycle continued this way for what felt like an eternity. The beatings didn’t finally stop until he began his tertiary education. People were a bit more civil, although they ignored him just the same. His studies in the field of astronomy both fascinated and enraptured him. Just as he lost himself in games, he could do the same in the celestial bodies of the heavens.

The time eventually came that MAO was announced to the world and preorders went up. Gavin made sure he was one of the few people to be a part of the staggered release. He felt excitement and anticipation as he logged in for the first time, his avatar a representation of himself with minute differences. The worlds he had only seen in such limited fashion before, had suddenly come to life before his very eyes. Things were different here. Strength was governed by numbers and stats, a persons status based on their trainer ability and not the brute strength of the real world’s wandering troglodytes. This was a world of people like him, nerds. And if he truly desired and persevered, here, he could be a king.

Avatar Appearance: Solomon stands approximately six feet, two inches from the ground. Like Gavin, Solomon’s avatar is thin but not exceedingly so as to be lanky. His body lacks natural muscle definition and definitely portrays a person with limited physical prowess. His lean, angular face, carries with it high cheek bones and a slim fitting nose. Rich, hazel eyes contrast nicely with his close cropped, dirty blonde, hair that is fashioned into a caesar cut with his ends flipped up. A pale skin tone and light dusting of freckles finish off the avatar and give Solomon a slightly younger than his years kind of appearance. Although serving no ‘distinct’ function in MAO, he decided to retain his thick, metallic rim glasses. These glasses are removable and unlike the real world, when removed, have no effect on his vision.

His clothing is simple but purposeful. On his torso, he wears a plain, black, “V” neck T-shirt, over which he wears a light weight, dark grey, three button, wool peacoat. His pants are simple, dark denim jeans that sit above a pair of black, multipurpose boots. He keeps his captured Pokemon on the inside lining of his jacket, but his usable ones and all other items are kept in a dyed orange wool messenger bag slung across his shoulders.

Starter Pokémon: Sneasel
Gender: Female
Nickname: Umbra
Ability: Keen Eye
Nature: Naive
Moves: Leer, Scratch, Taunt, Quick Attack, Faint Attack, Icy Wind


Roleplay Sample: From Sword Art Online....it seemed kind of fitting.

Spoiler:
The water rippled as the bobber slowly waded its way majestically through the pristine waters of the lake. This lake made up the majority of Circleshore, or Floor 6 to those who preferred numerical designations. Circleshore was a tranquil getaway, almost like a breath of fresh air from the harsh realities that the other floors provided. Elise had stripped herself of her armor, nothing more than the cloth brigandine she usually wore under the armor plates and her leather chausses. She didn’t feel particularly in danger here. Her level, now eighteen, was above the recommended level for this floor. Even if that wasn’t the case, the monsters here were almost docile in nature. Even still, Elise kept her sword handy. It lay in the sand on her left side; its brilliant, pale green hue, radiated in the sun. Each little ray of light refracted perfectly off its unique flamberge design. It almost looked like the sword was alive, or dancing in the midst of a fire. When she had forged it, after her little side trip with Krissu, it had been a monumental jump from her previous sword. It was still a great sword now, probably better than anything she could make with current materials. [The Fire Dancer] was its name in the system, probably due more to its appearance than any actual fire kinship.

Elise leaned back onto the sand, her hair spilling out beneath her. She held her fishing pole loosely in both hands, her eyes closed as she soaked up the virtual sun. Even being virtual, it had all the radiant warmth and beauty of its actual celestial counterpart. It had been a few hours since she had started fishing at this spot, yet nothing of note had been caught. It didn’t quite bother her much, it was a beautiful day and all, but it was a tad boring. Her bobber bounced a few times without her notice, a small nibble, nothing to signify that anything had been hooked. She sat up again, her body letting out a sigh of exasperation. Fishing wasn’t exactly one of her best skills, far from it. In fact, it was only something she had tried to recently pick up. Elise quickly began to think she didn’t have the patience for it however. Too much sitting, not enough doing.

The bobber teased her with its up and down motion, something was definitely displaying interest in the bait, but it hadn’t committed yet. A couple walked by beside her, giving her a quick wave as they sat down a little farther down shore. A quick glance in their direction showed they were about her age, from the looks of their name slots they appeared to be in the same guild. Not an uncommon occurrence anymore, people starting relationships in SAO. Especially when people were in the same guild, those were the ones who usually ended up getting “married”. Or, as married as one could get in SAO. It was a pretty simple thing actually, and becoming all too common. The greatest benefit was probably the shared storage between partners, kind of like a private communal storage bank for two people. Elise only groaned at the thought. Couples were so dependent on one another and Elise had sworn never to depend on anybody.

In her distraction while scrutinizing the couple, whatever it was on the other end of the line had bitten down and escaped with her bait. Elise cursed under her breath as she quickly recalled the line and stashed the rod into her inventory. She was done fishing for the day, one could only take so much aggravation and lack of productivity. Bending to pick up her sword, she quickly toggled her armor back on in her inventory screen. The heavy, yet reassuring weight was back on her body. That weight signified protection, freedom, life.

She made her way to to the portal area of Circleshore, the sun on the verge of setting in its soon to be twilight hours. The twenty four hour clock in SAO was just as faithful as the one outside it. As she accessed the portal, she picked her destination and in a flash, she appeared in Dovren. A city situated perilously on a steep cliff, it was like something out of a fairy tale, or well, a game. This bustling town of trade had become a hub for merchants selling their wares the world over. That was exactly the reason she had decided to come here now, wherever there were merchants, there were bound to be excellent chefs. Her stomach rumbled loudly as she made her way through the streets of the safe town.

After only a few minutes of walking, a suitable enough place presented itself. It seemed popular enough, typically a good sign when it came to restaurants and their quality. Elise made her way inside, pushing slightly against the crowds as she made her way to a table in the corner. The rustic charm of the building was undeniable. Creaky wood floor boards, the soft dancing glow of candlelit light fixtures and the mounted heads of trophies adorned the walls. It was just about how Elise had pictured an old tavern might had been when adventurers actually roamed the Earth. A portly waiter made his way over, notepad and cheery demeanor in hand. Elise quickly placed an order for whatever the special might be, in this case it was a roasted Corn Crow from floor seven. The waiter ran off again to go give the order to whoever was doing prep tonight. The chef was surely swamped, but he or she had to be leveling their skill quickly with all the work.

She waited patiently, the crowd being entertainment in itself. She loved to people watch, people always proved to be a most fascinating subject. Going about their business, friends chatting, people flirting, people getting shot down while flirting, etc. Elise was one of the few solo players in the room, the majority belonging to guilds by the looks of it. A man looked in her direction, probably a good few years older than her. She looked away, hoping not to draw any attention to herself. It didn’t matter; the man stood up from his table, leaving his friends and drink behind. Elise groaned as he approached her, his size looming over her.

“Save your breath, I’m not interested,” She looked up at him and spoke flatly. The waiter came back with her drink, some kind of cold tea type of drink. The man looked puzzled at her matter of fact statement, he hadn’t even said anything yet and she had shot down whatever it was preemptively.

“I didn’t even say anything!” He just about bellowed at her, his fists clenching in response.

“I can guess what you’re going to say,” Elise answered back at him mildly, she closed her eyes and took a sip from her drink.

“Oh really, so you got it all figured out?” He didn’t take too kindly to being shot down so quickly in front of his friends. “It’s not even what you think. I noticed you didn’t have a guild indicator in your name slate. If you’re on this floor by yourself, I assume your level is pretty decent. I wanted to invite you to join our guild.” His voice definitely sounded agitated. If Elise had to guess, he definitely had a temper.

“See, that’s funny.” Elise let out a forced, sarcastic laugh. “That’s exactly what I knew you were coming over for and I stand by my prior comment. I’m not interested. Go sell to someone who’s buying, Tiny.” She sipped from her drink again, this time taking a loud, exaggerated gulp.

The man was fuming, he apparently didn’t enjoy her nickname for him. He walked away, only to come back in a hurry, his fist aimed squarely at her face. The system intervened before it made contact. His hand bounced harmlessly away as the town’s safe zone prevented any harm from occurring. Elise payed him no mind, she knew the system would do that, it always did.

“Y-you listen here -” His guild mates from across the room came running to drag him away, his insults becoming muffled as they did so. It didn't take too much imagination to know what he was going to call her, and it saddened her to know another thought of her that way. Just as quickly as the sadness came, she pushed it away however. He continued to cry out vehemently as they took him outside to calm down.

Elise sat at her table, all eyes now turned her direction. She gave them a quick wave to acknowledge them and turned her attention to the food that was now making its way to her, oblivious waiter and all. Dinner and a show.

She was able to finish the rest of her dinner in peace, the other patrons quickly returned their attention back to their own matters. Elise payed her bill, a nice tip for the waiter included and made her way out into the crisp evening air. She wasn’t tired enough for bed, but it wasn’t good to go out leveling alone at night. Two weeks prior, she had missed the boss fight that had occurred and she wanted to make sure she didn’t miss anymore from that point on. When all that was going on, she had still been busy with Krissu and Reinhart. She had been rather curt to Reinhart when they first met, but for reasons she couldn’t quite explain, she had added him to her in-game friend list. Something she didn’t do a whole lot.

Maybe it was because he had saved Krissu’s life that day? It didn’t really matter in the end. She hadn’t talked to him in sometime, he was a little rough around the edges. He hadn’t messaged her, nor her him. With a swipe of her right hand, she pulled up her friend list to see if he was still alive. As expected, he was indeed still alive. She tapped the send message button, the dictation dialogue popped up in its place.

[To: Reinhart]
[Subject: Bored]

Hey, Reinhart. Want to scout out the dungeon on floor 8?



She sent the message, brief as it was. It wasn’t really necessary to send a long, embellished novel. In fact, Reinhart would probably appreciate its brevity. After it sent, she closed all her menus and strolled about the city. The hustle and bustle was nice, a different kind of enjoyment from the fishing hole. She pulled up a seat on a bench towards the center of town. If he didn’t respond, she’d be forced to go find something else to occupy her time. In a town like this, it probably wouldn’t be too hard.

Regarding the RP Sample that is required. My most recent is a Medieval Royalty post that was done about a month or two ago and I don't believe it would quite reflect how it is that I would post here. I was wondering a couple of things. First, do you require to sample to be of the Pokémon genre? Second, do you want something more recent and reflective? Finally, should I just write up a sample or throw this one in despite the misfortunes?

Also, I adore the idea of professions (Breeder doesn't sound too creepy...) I think that they are all strong ideas. You can do a lot with those and there are tons of opportunities to branch out and be creative.

I think a Crafter and Angler are good. Pokéballs, especially different kinds, are always high in demand in game, so why not in RP? Angler would have the opportunity to get unique Pokémon other trainers won't and that's awesome. Who knows, with these different Pokémon there might be traders out there and that opens up more possibilities.

Would they be professions you learn and adapt on your journey, or something already acquired with game start?

I don't have the mindset to think up any new ideas, but I do like this and would love to see it implemented.

- Tutor (teach moves that your own pokémon know, to other people's pokémon. Even if they shouldn't really be able to use that move!)
In regards to the list, I guess I'll throw up some ideas as well. Some ideas are in bold of the quote.

- Haggler (% chance to trick persuade NPCs/players? to sell low/buy high; once per NPC/player with a certain cooldown before the next chance to do so again on the same NPC/player; maybe have a % to be able to buy rare items?)

- Excavator (for you fossil fans I guess... let's you find fossils, whether it be pokemon fossils or just fossil bones of dead animals... heh... oh and the uh... resurrection aura... lol... maybe give it a % chance and possibly having it fail-able too!) RHCP can think about the being able to find fossil thing since it was mentioned that fossils might just be quest rewards yada yada...

Advanced Professions:

- Scout (able to obtain information about rare pokemon within the area(doesn't mean you can catch them mind you); detect dangerously high lvl pokemon/trainers; this one might seem over the top but hey! lol)

- Ace/Specialist (become a specialist in one Pokemon type of choice and grant the same type of Pokemon a slight attack power with reduced defenses; this one might be a little over the top too but maybe we can tone it down or just ignore it)

- Enforcer/Protector (same as above but grants slight increase in defensive powers at the cost of attack power )

Maybe I'm thinking too much.... URGH! Time to go to sleep for real now... ...

alright I have a free period today an my lunch, so I can get some solid work done. By the time I get home at the end of the day I tend to be so tired all I want to do is play awesomenauts. I'm just done thinking. anyway...

with the classes I'd say if you made excavator it should still be both stones and fossils, but just a different name. Maybe it should be a bit like gen 4's underground and that these people can get most of those items. Then draw back could be that items found are very location based. ex. a kabuto fossil could only be found in a coastal area (possibly only one town).

specialist could be cool, but have it be all positive bonuses, but you may only have one type of pokemon to get the buff. IF you have a mixed team then you're specialized type should get a very slight boost.

I'd suggest the collector as a class in that they'd have a minutely better chance at catching pokemon.

Also I'd like to ask about econemy. do we have to track our money or is it sort of "Oh I won a battle so I have some spare cash."

Love your character (and those shoes), Retro! Fara reminds me a great deal of Irene Adler, from Sherlock. I guess I wasn't the only one who wanted to create an antagonist in this RP.

Can't wait!

Yes, there will be places in Johto where you can learn the different professions. Like Alchemist in Cherrygrove, for instance. So no need to have a profession in your SU :) unless you want to be an alchemist, then you can include it in your history part if you want.

You've probably noticed that I'm giving you a lot of freedom to moderate things on your own in this RP. Levels, money, captures, even evolution... Same with professions. But I do want you to make sure not to start out too skillful. It won't be fun if you can cook up Max Revives in Azalea Town already ^^ So try to make it seem like you're progressively learning more.

Since there will be some time until some professions become available, I wanted to let you know what to aim for already before we start - if you do find a certain profession more appealing than others. BUT! You won't be stuck with the same profession for all of MAO, unless you want to. You could become an Alchemist now and work with that until you finally reach the place where you can become, for instance, a Tutor at last. Then you can discard your title as alchemist and start off as a novel Tutor, but then you'll lose all your skills as an alchemist and have to work from the bottom with your new profession.

Heh, it might sound a bit much to think about... but I really don't think it'll be complicated! Basically: JUST DO WHAT YOU WANT AND WHAT YOU THINK IS OK AND NOT GODMODDING/POWERPLAYING. :D The most important thing is that everyone enjoys the RP, I think.

Spoiler:
Real Name: Gavin Ellis

Real Age: 21

Real Gender: Male

Personality: A perfectionist - described as a person who demands perfection of himself or others. Many often joked that if you looked up that word in a dictionary, they would find Gavin’s name adjacent to that little blurb. It started at a young age, his perfectionism, probably a side effect of his acute OCD. His insatiable insistence, no, compulsion to do things a certain way. Whether it be a book placed just right on a shelf, or correcting himself (and others) mid-sentence due to a slip of grammatical inaccuracy. He often pushed himself so that this one foible did not become his sole defining trait as a human, but he struggled to overcome the already heavy reputation and stigma.

Teased and picked on as a child and his reputation preceding him in many social situations, Gavin never developed the “normal” conventions that many garnered from childhood onward. Socially introverted and a bit callus when approached by others. From his experience, people only try and talk to him to further tease or insult him. Even if people try and get to know him out of genuine personal interest, he secretly suspects it's just for them to later cast aspersions. He works fine with others in a business setting, especially if he were in charge, but he never dare attempt to draw near to any besides his family.

This lack of normal social interaction, caused him to lose himself to the worlds of video games, movies, or what have you. Here in these fantasy worlds, he could be whatever he desired; a hero, villain, morally grey, it didn’t matter. He would cast himself into the story and lose himself there. He is steadfastly serious and almost calculating in his actions. Not one for vociferous outbursts, Gavin stays levelheaded and even toned during situations where others may become heated. What he lacks in social and “street” smarts, he makes up for in general intelligence. Although not tested at a “genius” level, he is very gifted and typically not afraid to let people know when he is smarter than them. This lack of humility further compounds his already lacking social prowess and alienates him even more from his contemporaries.

It is hard to say if anyone could ever worm their way past all this, but Gavin himself isn’t very receptive to the idea. He truly does care for his mother and father, but nobody else has ever had such a profound effect on him in that he can accurately define “caring” for somebody. Maybe the reason he loves Pokemon so much and as a result MAO, is because of how well he gets along with real animals. According to him, “Animals don’t judge anyone and are always there for you.”

History: October 11th, 1991 - London, United Kingdom. The day Gavin entered this world, born to two loving and average in every way parents. His father, James Ellis, a system analyst and his mother, Samantha Ellis, a happy stay at home mother. His early childhood was fairly mundane as these things go. Samantha began to notice little idiosyncrasies that triggered some warning bells as he got older. These little indications led to a visit to a psychologist who identified him with his acute obsessive compulsive disorder.

In school, he was picked on mercilessly by his classmates and one boy in particular, Craig Murphy. Whenever he progressed in a grade, Gavin would wish that he and Craig would be separated by some stroke of luck. Craig moving, being held back, divine intervention by meteor strike, it didn’t much matter to him. This boy was one of just a few reasons he lost faith in people his age or strangers in general. Everyday, he would attend school, ace his work, take his beatings and rush home to his homework and gaming. He became an avid Pokemon fan, going so far as to EV train each of his monsters and enjoying the global battle scene to the best of his ability.

Nursery, Primary and Secondary. This cycle continued this way for what felt like an eternity. The beatings didn’t finally stop until he began his tertiary education. People were a bit more civil, although they ignored him just the same. His studies in the field of astronomy both fascinated and enraptured him. Just as he lost himself in games, he could do the same in the celestial bodies of the heavens.

The time eventually came that MAO was announced to the world and preorders went up. Gavin made sure he was one of the few people to be a part of the staggered release. He felt excitement and anticipation as he logged in for the first time, his avatar a representation of himself with minute differences. The worlds he had only seen in such limited fashion before, had suddenly come to life before his very eyes. Things were different here. Strength was governed by numbers and stats, a persons status based on their trainer ability and not the brute strength of the real world’s wandering troglodytes. This was a world of people like him, nerds. And if he truly desired and persevered, here, he could be a king.

Avatar Appearance: Solomon stands approximately six feet, two inches from the ground. Like Gavin, Solomon’s avatar is thin but not exceedingly so as to be lanky. His body lacks natural muscle definition and definitely portrays a person with limited physical prowess. His lean, angular face, carries with it high cheek bones and a slim fitting nose. Rich, hazel eyes contrast nicely with his close cropped, dirty blonde, hair that is fashioned into a caesar cut with his ends flipped up. A pale skin tone and light dusting of freckles finish off the avatar and give Solomon a slightly younger than his years kind of appearance. Although serving no ‘distinct’ function in MAO, he decided to retain his thick, metallic rim glasses. These glasses are removable and unlike the real world, when removed, have no effect on his vision.

His clothing is simple but purposeful. On his torso, he wears a plain, black, “V” neck T-shirt, over which he wears a light weight, dark grey, three button, wool peacoat. His pants are simple, dark denim jeans that sit above a pair of black, multipurpose boots. He keeps his captured Pokemon on the inside lining of his jacket, but his usable ones and all other items are kept in a dyed orange wool messenger bag slung across his shoulders.

Roleplay Sample: From Sword Art Online....it seemed kind of fitting. :P

Spoiler:
The water rippled as the bobber slowly waded its way majestically through the pristine waters of the lake. This lake made up the majority of Circleshore, or Floor 6 to those who preferred numerical designations. Circleshore was a tranquil getaway, almost like a breath of fresh air from the harsh realities that the other floors provided. Elise had stripped herself of her armor, nothing more than the cloth brigandine she usually wore under the armor plates and her leather chausses. She didn’t feel particularly in danger here. Her level, now eighteen, was above the recommended level for this floor. Even if that wasn’t the case, the monsters here were almost docile in nature. Even still, Elise kept her sword handy. It lay in the sand on her left side; its brilliant, pale green hue, radiated in the sun. Each little ray of light refracted perfectly off its unique flamberge design. It almost looked like the sword was alive, or dancing in the midst of a fire. When she had forged it, after her little side trip with Krissu, it had been a monumental jump from her previous sword. It was still a great sword now, probably better than anything she could make with current materials. [The Fire Dancer] was its name in the system, probably due more to its appearance than any actual fire kinship.

Elise leaned back onto the sand, her hair spilling out beneath her. She held her fishing pole loosely in both hands, her eyes closed as she soaked up the virtual sun. Even being virtual, it had all the radiant warmth and beauty of its actual celestial counterpart. It had been a few hours since she had started fishing at this spot, yet nothing of note had been caught. It didn’t quite bother her much, it was a beautiful day and all, but it was a tad boring. Her bobber bounced a few times without her notice, a small nibble, nothing to signify that anything had been hooked. She sat up again, her body letting out a sigh of exasperation. Fishing wasn’t exactly one of her best skills, far from it. In fact, it was only something she had tried to recently pick up. Elise quickly began to think she didn’t have the patience for it however. Too much sitting, not enough doing.

The bobber teased her with its up and down motion, something was definitely displaying interest in the bait, but it hadn’t committed yet. A couple walked by beside her, giving her a quick wave as they sat down a little farther down shore. A quick glance in their direction showed they were about her age, from the looks of their name slots they appeared to be in the same guild. Not an uncommon occurrence anymore, people starting relationships in SAO. Especially when people were in the same guild, those were the ones who usually ended up getting “married”. Or, as married as one could get in SAO. It was a pretty simple thing actually, and becoming all too common. The greatest benefit was probably the shared storage between partners, kind of like a private communal storage bank for two people. Elise only groaned at the thought. Couples were so dependent on one another and Elise had sworn never to depend on anybody.

In her distraction while scrutinizing the couple, whatever it was on the other end of the line had bitten down and escaped with her bait. Elise cursed under her breath as she quickly recalled the line and stashed the rod into her inventory. She was done fishing for the day, one could only take so much aggravation and lack of productivity. Bending to pick up her sword, she quickly toggled her armor back on in her inventory screen. The heavy, yet reassuring weight was back on her body. That weight signified protection, freedom, life.

She made her way to to the portal area of Circleshore, the sun on the verge of setting in its soon to be twilight hours. The twenty four hour clock in SAO was just as faithful as the one outside it. As she accessed the portal, she picked her destination and in a flash, she appeared in Dovren. A city situated perilously on a steep cliff, it was like something out of a fairy tale, or well, a game. This bustling town of trade had become a hub for merchants selling their wares the world over. That was exactly the reason she had decided to come here now, wherever there were merchants, there were bound to be excellent chefs. Her stomach rumbled loudly as she made her way through the streets of the safe town.

After only a few minutes of walking, a suitable enough place presented itself. It seemed popular enough, typically a good sign when it came to restaurants and their quality. Elise made her way inside, pushing slightly against the crowds as she made her way to a table in the corner. The rustic charm of the building was undeniable. Creaky wood floor boards, the soft dancing glow of candlelit light fixtures and the mounted heads of trophies adorned the walls. It was just about how Elise had pictured an old tavern might had been when adventurers actually roamed the Earth. A portly waiter made his way over, notepad and cheery demeanor in hand. Elise quickly placed an order for whatever the special might be, in this case it was a roasted Corn Crow from floor seven. The waiter ran off again to go give the order to whoever was doing prep tonight. The chef was surely swamped, but he or she had to be leveling their skill quickly with all the work.

She waited patiently, the crowd being entertainment in itself. She loved to people watch, people always proved to be a most fascinating subject. Going about their business, friends chatting, people flirting, people getting shot down while flirting, etc. Elise was one of the few solo players in the room, the majority belonging to guilds by the looks of it. A man looked in her direction, probably a good few years older than her. She looked away, hoping not to draw any attention to herself. It didn’t matter; the man stood up from his table, leaving his friends and drink behind. Elise groaned as he approached her, his size looming over her.

“Save your breath, I’m not interested,” She looked up at him and spoke flatly. The waiter came back with her drink, some kind of cold tea type of drink. The man looked puzzled at her matter of fact statement, he hadn’t even said anything yet and she had shot down whatever it was preemptively.

“I didn’t even say anything!” He just about bellowed at her, his fists clenching in response.

“I can guess what you’re going to say,” Elise answered back at him mildly, she closed her eyes and took a sip from her drink.

“Oh really, so you got it all figured out?” He didn’t take too kindly to being shot down so quickly in front of his friends. “It’s not even what you think. I noticed you didn’t have a guild indicator in your name slate. If you’re on this floor by yourself, I assume your level is pretty decent. I wanted to invite you to join our guild.” His voice definitely sounded agitated. If Elise had to guess, he definitely had a temper.

“See, that’s funny.” Elise let out a forced, sarcastic laugh. “That’s exactly what I knew you were coming over for and I stand by my prior comment. I’m not interested. Go sell to someone who’s buying, Tiny.” She sipped from her drink again, this time taking a loud, exaggerated gulp.

The man was fuming, he apparently didn’t enjoy her nickname for him. He walked away, only to come back in a hurry, his fist aimed squarely at her face. The system intervened before it made contact. His hand bounced harmlessly away as the town’s safe zone prevented any harm from occurring. Elise payed him no mind, she knew the system would do that, it always did.

“Y-you listen here -” His guild mates from across the room came running to drag him away, his insults becoming muffled as they did so. It didn't take too much imagination to know what he was going to call her, and it saddened her to know another thought of her that way. Just as quickly as the sadness came, she pushed it away however. He continued to cry out vehemently as they took him outside to calm down.

Elise sat at her table, all eyes now turned her direction. She gave them a quick wave to acknowledge them and turned her attention to the food that was now making its way to her, oblivious waiter and all. Dinner and a show.

She was able to finish the rest of her dinner in peace, the other patrons quickly returned their attention back to their own matters. Elise payed her bill, a nice tip for the waiter included and made her way out into the crisp evening air. She wasn’t tired enough for bed, but it wasn’t good to go out leveling alone at night. Two weeks prior, she had missed the boss fight that had occurred and she wanted to make sure she didn’t miss anymore from that point on. When all that was going on, she had still been busy with Krissu and Reinhart. She had been rather curt to Reinhart when they first met, but for reasons she couldn’t quite explain, she had added him to her in-game friend list. Something she didn’t do a whole lot.

Maybe it was because he had saved Krissu’s life that day? It didn’t really matter in the end. She hadn’t talked to him in sometime, he was a little rough around the edges. He hadn’t messaged her, nor her him. With a swipe of her right hand, she pulled up her friend list to see if he was still alive. As expected, he was indeed still alive. She tapped the send message button, the dictation dialogue popped up in its place.

[To: Reinhart]
[Subject: Bored]

Hey, Reinhart. Want to scout out the dungeon on floor 8?



She sent the message, brief as it was. It wasn’t really necessary to send a long, embellished novel. In fact, Reinhart would probably appreciate its brevity. After it sent, she closed all her menus and strolled about the city. The hustle and bustle was nice, a different kind of enjoyment from the fishing hole. She pulled up a seat on a bench towards the center of town. If he didn’t respond, she’d be forced to go find something else to occupy her time. In a town like this, it probably wouldn’t be too hard.
Accepted!

Finally, should I just write up a sample or throw this one in despite the misfortunes?

Also, I adore the idea of professions (Breeder doesn't sound too creepy...) I think that they are all strong ideas. You can do a lot with those and there are tons of opportunities to branch out and be creative.

I think a Crafter and Angler are good. Pokéballs, especially different kinds, are always high in demand in game, so why not in RP? Angler would have the opportunity to get unique Pokémon other trainers won't and that's awesome. Who knows, with these different Pokémon there might be traders out there and that opens up more possibilities.

Would they be professions you learn and adapt on your journey, or something already acquired with game start?

I don't have the mindset to think up any new ideas, but I do like this and would love to see it implemented.
Maybe you can write up something about when your character first entered MAO? Or post your old sample and we'll see~ RP Sample is mostly there to let me see if players who maybe didn't write the best SU might still be adequate RPers, or if people with rather good SUs don't actually know how to RP. In your case, from what I've seen of your text so far, I doubt you have anything to worry about.

Whelp peeps... time for me to go to sleep! (4am wut?!)

In regards to the list, I guess I'll throw up some ideas as well. Some ideas are in bold of the quote.

- Haggler (% chance to trick persuade NPCs/players? to sell low/buy high; once per NPC/player with a certain cooldown before the next chance to do so again on the same NPC/player; maybe have a % to be able to buy rare items?)

- Excavator (for you fossil fans I guess... let's you find fossils, whether it be pokemon fossils or just fossil bones of dead animals... heh... oh and the uh... resurrection aura... lol... maybe give it a % chance and possibly having it fail-able too!) RHCP can think about the being able to find fossil thing since it was mentioned that fossils might just be quest rewards yada yada...

Advanced Professions:

- Scout (able to obtain information about rare pokemon within the area(doesn't mean you can catch them mind you); detect dangerously high lvl pokemon/trainers; this one might seem over the top but hey! lol)

- Ace/Specialist (become a specialist in one Pokemon type of choice and grant the same type of Pokemon a slight attack power with reduced defenses; this one might be a little over the top too but maybe we can tone it down or just ignore it)

- Enforcer/Protector (same as above but grants slight increase in defensive powers at the cost of attack power )

Maybe I'm thinking too much.... URGH! Time to go to sleep for real now... ...
I appreciate your thoughts about the professions~ Even though I don't think I'll implement those exact ones :) See, I think professions should invite character interaction rather than benefit the player themselves. It shouldn't be like a "class" of trainers, rather something they can do besides training to get extra money or friends. I'd love to see a guild of Anglers or Excavators starting up 8D

Haggler, Scout, Enforcer and Specialist feel kind of more like classes and not really like professions that can be useful towards other players. Excavator was a good name change for Explorer though, I think I'll go with that if the rest of you agree ^^

Indeed, spiffy but not at all necessary. Your SU had so much delicious text in it that it was equally beautiful~ Accepted!


Heh, I hope that not everyone tries to be an antagonist type player now ^^'

with the classes I'd say if you made excavator it should still be both stones and fossils, but just a different name. Maybe it should be a bit like gen 4's underground and that these people can get most of those items. Then draw back could be that items found are very location based. ex. a kabuto fossil could only be found in a coastal area (possibly only one town).

specialist could be cool, but have it be all positive bonuses, but you may only have one type of pokemon to get the buff. IF you have a mixed team then you're specialized type should get a very slight boost.

I'd suggest the collector as a class in that they'd have a minutely better chance at catching pokemon.

Also I'd like to ask about econemy. do we have to track our money or is it sort of "Oh I won a battle so I have some spare cash."
Let me know when your SU is finally complete. As for your comment about the spiffy css SUs, I'm not more likely to accept a styled up SU than a purely text based one, but text is for the eyes and I do find it more interesting and exciting to read if it also looks good. There's nothing strange about that, in my opinion :)

Yes, what I thought, just changing the profession name. I think we shouldn't call them classes, since I think trainers can switch between professions if they'd like (but then they'll loose all their skill points and have to start over!) and since they're not just meant to benefit the player himself but also let him benefit others with it.

As such, collector profession wouldn't really be necessary :) The Crafter profession can make pokéballs for themselves or others that can help with catch rates and whatnot.

It's sort of "oh I won a battle so now I can finally afford those flashy Revives in the store!" yes. It's up to your own moderation. If you think it's fun to pretend that you always have enough money for everything, go ahead. If you want to make the RP more challenging and realistic, you could pretend that your character is low on money sometimes and that could be the driving force to make them undertake a quest or challenge someone to a battle or other stuff. Yay! Makes sense?



IN OTHER NEWS as of today I'm finally on winter holiday!! I'm so happy to not have to think of molecules and medicines for one single little week before I have to start studying again... So I'm really, really eager to start this RP up as soon as possible now! I've said that I'll wait until Friday/Saturday though so if someone can't get their SU up tomorrow, we'll just wait until Saturday and it's totes ok~


Edit: Also, a reservee dropped out and machomuu is now reserved for the 10th spot.

Oooooo! News! Now where's my Weather!? xD

Well I didn't want to quote the above post but now that you've pointed it out how you wanted your professions to be based on, I have a better take on building them. (cause I just wasn't sure what you were expecting xD)

But I shall add more in those context of benefiting others and such rather than it being for the player alone. The clarity was all that I needed. :D

Edit: Hot ninjas! XD

- Massage Therapist ( be it giving people a relaxing massage or Pokemon, creates some loving atmosphere and improves affection levels between Pokemon and their trainers, maybe even with the other trainer too!; limit once a day per trainer, so you know... to make it not so abuse-able; lol, why not have people do this for some Gs!? up to the person to charge a fee or whatever... )

- TM Specialist (for those trainers who are TM collecting fanatics; allows the usage of your own TMs on other trainer's Pokemon; I was thinking this in conjunction with the Tutor profession; xD One person with Tutor and another with TM Specialist would be pretty interesting!)

- Trader (gains the Trader's Machine, allowing for Pokemon Trading; should there be no Pokemon Center nearby, a Trader can allow for Pokemon trading but up to a limit of 2 before the device needs to be recharged at a Pokemon Center; hm... maybe we could add to it or something.... meh)

(Added a link for a minor character WIP art piece.... dunno if i'll finish it though...)

@CyBeastSaber - Regarding the TM Specialist, I think that profession would seem more like something that an NPC would be rather than a PC. Or, if not, I could see the profession being absorbed into the Tutor profession, but I'd suspect that you could just give someone a TM if you wanted them to teach their pokemon a move that you have (or one could simply use TMs on other pokemon, if we're following 5th generation TM use).

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing too but didn't want to give the Tutor even more extra powers... despite it being able to assimilate well into that profession. An extra profession might be a bit overdue though so I'm thinking of scraping the TM specialist. 5th Gen is too OP! xD

I think TMs can be implemented quite well as rewards for quests and stuff like that. I don't really see the use of having another player use them on your pokémon?

Tutors, as I've described them now, don't actually give any benefits to themselves. Maybe that's a shame. They should be allowed to teach "odd" moves to their own pokémon as well, because it sounds a bit strange that a Tutor would need another Tutor to teach moves to their own pokémon anyways. As if an Alchemist couldn't use their own potions or Mechanics couldn't give their created items to their own pokémon :p

Trader actually sounds interesting. Not sure it would be widely used, though. But perhaps it could be implemented in the Mechanic profession? When becoming a Mechanic, you could be able to craft a trading machine and use it on the move. It would make sense, I think ^^ plus, the mechanic profession maybe wouldn't be much used anyways otherwise.

Heh, the final say is still up to you and I agree with your thoughts. Gives the Mechanic more viability compared to some of the other professions. All in all, I'm throwing stuff around to get some ideas going so we can do stuff. I'm still drawing ATM which is why I haven't been adding ideas. xD (This art piece is looking really like a girl.... D: ) --> Line Art <---

The only thing I paln to add to my SU (unless anything else is needed) is a picture. I know a great deviant art flash that lets you make trainers, and I tend to use it alot.

I've just been told that I'll be working through January to May on a work placement at a chemical research center so unfortunately I won't have time to take part in this RP any more. It's a shame, I was really looking forward to this one. If it's still running in the future then hopefully there'll be a spot free to apply for ;) I can hope haha. Have fun everyone playing!

Actually, yeah. With AlexOzzyCake retreating and a few people who expressed interest without spots available to reserve, I might as well just let you all post SUs and accept those that are good. 10 spots or 12 spots, what's the difference ^^

So, like... Vato, gunnerpow7 and CyBeastSaber, if you still want to submit SUs, let me know when they are finished and I'll have a look at them just like with the other reserved RPers. *and there was joy and happiness*

In your case, from what I've seen of your text so far, I doubt you have anything to worry about.
Just wanted to update saying that I have finished my SU. I thought it would've taken me at least until Friday morning but it appears the words just came flowing today. I am very happy with it so I am hoping it will be good enough for this.

I decided just to post the RP Sample I had, cross my fingers. I think it will at least reflect somewhat on how I will post if accepted for this RP. :)

SU writing is not going as quick as I thought it would So, here's the empty space I'll use to type the SU, but don't worry, I'll make sure to let you know when it is ready and CSSd, since I am planning to do some of it on the SU before I become rusty with it

Feel free to read whatever I've came up with ATM, but be warned, it might not make much sense yet... YOU'VE BEEN WARNED.

Spoiler:
BE GONE!
Or read, I'm a SU sheet, not a cop.

Real Name: Delillah Forth, also referred to as her Official Teasing Name, Deli Meat.
Real Age: 19
Real Gender: Female

Personality: Let's see, if I can describe Delillah in a sentence, I'd say... Don't mess with her, and she won't destroy you. Kind and gentle with those she likes, yet mean to no end to those she hates with her heart. Who are these people she hates? Simple, IT'S YOU.

With little to no sense of humor, she will not hesitate to kick you out if you're trying to make her laugh, with the pain that you suffer accomplishing this goal. Don't do or say anything she's not okay with, or you'll see mean Delillah, and yes, the previous was kind Delillah.

Bipolar? Certainly, will she admit this? HELL NAW! It just so happens that shell deny she needs to manage her anger by yelling at you, yes, I said yelling. I don't get it either...

She struggles when it comes to make new friends, probably because of her attitude, even though yell just explain the small amount of frieds around her by saying that it's just so hard to be nice with people when you think they all suck. Shes still much of a chit-chatter and will recover several 'SHUT UP!'s during the day, as well as angry teachers nagging her and whatnot.

So, is she mean? Well, I'd rather prefer to say she's special in her own way. Don't expect her telling you how nice those jeans look, or that it's a beautiful day. You should actually brace yourself for the tons of sarcasm that pour down from the skies when her mouth begins to emit words. Just make sure to be well behaved around her, and she'll probably not destroy you slow and painfully... What? I'm just a wall of text, I can't predict the future!

History: TBW, expect an explanation to her nickname and the way she acts.

Thanks!


Sovereign is accepted! Your SU sample was well written ^^

jasonwolf is accepted! Cool appearance ^^

CyBeastSaber is accepted! Mirror move is ok, it's in Torchic's real leveling up moveset, even if it's at a relatively high level. And the RP sample told me enough.
