@ Maddy, accepted! Nice to see that someone dared to take the opportunity to have high levels xD
@ Megan, there's no link to the appearance of Parker ;; so either please explain more or insert dat link.
@ Shawn, looks good! Accepted. Just remember that your pokémon can know 6 moves and aren't limited to 4. If you want ^^
Auugh, I get an urge to change my pokémon team around again. So indecisive, haha. And also can more people come and join us in Hoenn? 8D Many many in Kanto now haha. Maybe we should focus the start of the RP on one or two or max three regions though. But idk. My plan is for people to plan together in the OOC and make up reasons for their characters to cross each other's paths even if it means traveling between regions. We are all rivals, after all! Or friends?
So far, you are the only one. If you turn out to be alone there when everyone has finished their SUs, you are of course welcome to change (and others are welcome to change regions after being accepted as well!). Just say so clearly in this thread please :3
Haha, I know what you mean Adventure. I keep going back to my SU and resisting the itch to tweak the team. I would actually love to play in Hoenn over Kanto, but I want to keep mah little Charmander. xD
Well I listed Monferno though I was in Hoenn. Just say you traded, it doesn't really matter much more than where we start. I kind of want to take away the chains that "starting a journey RP as a rookie trainer with your starter" often put on you.
Maybe I should have some kind of rule about trades with NPCs (and other NPC Players in-game) after the start of the RP though. I think we should keep those to a minimum/non-existent :p You can trade with other RPers as much as you want though!
@ EVERYONE - I feel ready to start the RP now. We have a good number of accepted RPers, and I'm sure the last reserved ones will have their SUs up before too long. If anything, maybe this puts some positive stress on them ;)
Is there anyone who feels like they want to change their starting place first? Remember that you can at any time travel between regions... At least if you have reached the city where the train/ferry/airplane goes from. Hm, I should probably have another peek at those listed cities and make sure they aren't too spread out or in the endgame O.o
I'm set and ready to go with my starting point, in Kanto! Also I'll get the picture of my character's avatar up, probably tomorrow, Black Friday was hectic at work. Got it all drawn up, but I'm to lazy to even scan it right now...
Yes, it's the team of Roxas, Umbreon and Vriska (avatars) starting in Hoenn! Once we reach Slateport/Mauville we'll be able to go to other regions. But I kind of love Hoenn ;; Might switch region once we reach the fire gym though, because I'm around Lavaridge in another RP too, I realized.
@ SylveonStar, if you really want to be in Kalos, you can wait with posting in the IC for a while and hope that the reservations that are left put up Kalos too. And you are allowed to start alone in Kalos of course, but it might be more fun for you if you switch in that case :3
I will now start the IC. Have fun RPing!
Likely, there will be details about setting and mechanics and plot that we will have to iron out as we go. I'm giving you a lot of freedom to interpret and describe how things work in the regions of MAO, just preferably try to stay true to any previous inventions by other RPers. We'll build our own canon! Sort of like how I in Marcello's SU decided that you still get between Route 104 and Dewford with a motorboat, rather quickly. Just don't mix in "evil teams"... There will be no such thing. Yet.
If you want a Lapras, I suggest you either make your character do some detective work for a while in the RP to try and find out if there is still a NPC character in Kanto who can gift or trade one - or you make your character aim to travel to Seafoam Islands and search for one herself. If the journey to Seafoam Islands is long and eventful enough, or if your detective work is cool enough, I'll make sure you find a Lapras in one way or another eventually ;) Sounds okay?
You can create and use as many other Players as you wish! But only the RPers are the "chosen" ones that can't log out. All the normal Players still go on their lives as usual, and unless one of us has notified them, nobody knows about this officially yet. At the start of the RP, we only just received the message.
Oh, that reminds me... it was a bit weird in my first IC post that I didn't make Marcello think about contacting his gaming friends. That would actually be the first thing. But yeah, he is in shock so.
I've got a question. When you interact with people is that considered sending them a private or normal message? I mean lets say you come across another player. Are you capable of actually speaking like with your mouth/voice in the game? Or must you must you go to Menu > Messages> Send Message To etc...?
Oh, you can speak. Have you seen Sword Art Online? This RP is based on that anime. In the game of SAO, they speak and move and live realistically like in the real world, only how much pain and damage they feel depends on their level and they have digital inventories and can send messages (like texts or emails) from their menu system without a phone or anything. That's how it works here in MAO too. The NerveGear makes your brain think that the world inside MAO is just as real as the real world. Only with a few more rules and digital solutions.
Hmmm, now I need to figure out who's where in Johto. Peria's first priority is probably going to be asking/begging others for information and guidance, and doing it with other characters will be interesting. Sadly for her, by the looks of it, most of the characters in Johto aren't particularly friendly.
