    Ohh...OK, I get it. That's good to know. I really appreciate the help but frankly, it's nothing serious at all. Just a bit of bad planning on my part. I'm actually ready to post now so yeah...=)

    No, really it's nothing. I've just been busy and I thought that I would have the time to post but I didn't. I should have said something, I know...Am I out?

    I could say school, but that's not the whole story, although a big part of it. I've been a bit lazy also to be honest so yeah...I really do apologize about that... =/

    That's fair. Unlike Lincoln I think Nika is going to have quite a large team that she rotates. So it'd be a long time before she ever hits a high enough level pokemon that I halt it's growth. But 65-70 seems like a good stopping point - plausible to join (one of) The Elite Four, but not be a champ.

    Is that a PTA limit or one you've imposed on her yourself? I've put similair restrictions on my character Lincoln. He doesn't have any empty pokeballs or the money to buy them with, and his dad will only provide him with one after achieving certain results as a trainer with the pokemon he has. Nika on the other hand has been a travelling trainer for a while, so from winnings I think she'll have a little bit of cash to her name, so I'm playing her less restricted.

    Ah right, sorry.

    When they were at home, either before Nika left for her journey or on her rare return visits, it seems like they either wouldn't have gotten on, or wouldn't have had a great deal of contact with each other. Which is fine, it just means the tie-in will be more about when they recognise each other at the Academy.

    I daresay either one is likely to challenge the other, since they'd both be fairly competitive (especially with another trainer from their home town) but given the levels of Valorie's pokemon, a victory would more or less be in the bag for her. From that point, Nika would probably be training and re-challenging Val semi-frequently.

    That's how I see it anyway, but you've got another take on it feel free to let me know.

    Cheers, just wanted to make sure, since I'd like to make a little start on Nika's personal story.

    Hm? What do you mean by "Also, go on?"

    Hey, that's fine. Not every tie-in has to be a positive, inspiring friendship. Nothing wrong with being not getting on, especially if we can get a rivalry out of it, if we're lucky.

    On a side note, am I moving my characters around too quickly in PTA? Everyone else is still in class, and I don't want to seem like I'm doing an unreasonable amount in too little time. Should I slow my characters down, or do we just accept that time is very elastic in RP?

    Overall then, it sounds like Valorie didn't/wouldn't like Nika very much. It seems like their goals are similair - respect and security - but their outward projections would clash.

    Oh, yeah, sorry! Spider is in Eterna City, skulking about the ceilings of an old building. She's trying to figure out an escape plan.

    In that case, Nika left on her journey a minimum of two years before Valorie even got her charmander. Nika returned home only about twice after she began her journey - so perhaps Valorie remembers her more as the returning trainer rather than the weird bullied kid?

    Nika changed a lot after she started her journey, she became a lot more outwardly confident in the sense that negative attention seemed to wash right off her - not that she went around braggarting or boasting. Perhaps Val saw her as quite a cool figure to aspire to, and can be suprised when they meet/if they battle at how crazy strong Val is compared to Nika?

    I'm just spitballing here though, feel free to jump in with whatever.

    Well, I noticed that Nika is a year older than Valorie, but significantly weaker, so we can have some fun with that when they re-meet. Nika spent so much time travelling around to get the pokemon she wanted, she won't have had as much time to devote to training.

    As far as a tie in from when they were back at home, one doesn't appear as obvious to me. Valorie doesn't seem like the type that would bully Nika, an older girl, for being a bit odd when Val has some oddness about her herself. How old was Val when she got her charmander after the bird-on-the-head incident?

    Oh, I didn't realise. I can change it if it'd be a bit of an issue, or we can do a bit of a tie-in. Or ignore it. Depends on Val's backstory really, I don't know it.

About Me

  • About PkMnTrainer Yellow
    I'm Marin, a dedicated roleplayer and gamer. I also arrange video game music in various styles (mostly 8 bit, SNES style, or orchestral) as a hobby. I was born with a crippling social-mental disability that pretty much caused a trainwreck of problems the moment I set foot in a public school. Luckily, I've since had the opportunity to get diagnosed and get the help I needed to... compensate for my limitations to some degree. Emphasis on the fact that I was never really cured in any sense of the word.

    Needless to say, I have quite the life story that has left me with a lot of... interesting quirks. I won't assume you want to hear about any of that, though. I have a natural fondness for the English language and have been told, and I wouldn't disagree with them, that I seem to have an abnormally high understanding of vocabulary.

    If you had to ask me, and I had to put all my modesty aside and answer in an objective manner though, I'd say my greatest strength is probably perseverance.

    I consider myself a very social person, and I'm all about love n' hugs and *cough*pwning noobs and stealing their lunch money*Clears throat* stuff like that. (...Some people aren't. o-o;)

Mini-Hack: How to get PC thread updates via RSS!

This guide is a neat little hacking trick to make Blogger send you RSS updates of your subscribed threads on PC. It's useful when you want instant updates in your RP threads, though I'm afraid there's no practical way to get updates of just RP threads without simply unsubscribing to any non-RP threads.

2) Changing your Blogger Settings
