Darkrai's Night Of Terror

a Halloween event RP, rated M
BUT: don't go overboard!

The dark eve of Halloween falls over Hoenn. Human children dress up as monsters, witches and scary pokémon, full of glee and ready to take on the wonders of the night ahead of them. Little do they know that there are others who are also getting ready to scare... But these don't take treats as an offer.

High above the region, Darkrai's dark castle rests on the clouds. His minions are ready to descend to Earth and do his evil bidding - in order to stay afloat, his castle needs a very special kind of energy and tonight is the best night of the year to collect it. Human fright.

You are a pokémon in Darkrai's ranks, and you will go down to Hoenn to begin your work - complete scare missions and impress your boss.

A mission only means that you need to scare some people. Try to be creative, use the environment around you and make interesting use of your chosen moves! Who to scare? You decide. This event is all about being creative with the horror genre. You may make up and make use of any NPCs you can imagine. Even canon ones like gym leaders etc.

PLEASE NOTE that even if this RP is rated M in the good spirit of Halloween, we don't want you to go too graphic with injuries and gore or adult themes of any kind. Keep it tasteful - making your readers want to vomit is not scary and won't exactly earn you plus points.

oOo

You get to choose where to start on the map, and can move on once you have successfully completed a mission in your current area. It is assumed that you have special void powers granted by Darkrai and can transport quickly between areas even if you don't normally fly or surf.

Humans aren't scared well in quick succession - if you try to scare in the same area as the last poster you won't impress Darkrai as much. It's up to you to work out if you're scaring in a good location! To avoid this problem, why not collaborate? You will both receive extra points for a joint scare! However, you can't do a mission together with another player twice in a row - you have to do a solo mission or a mission together with a different player in between.Use your brains and decide when to collaborate and when to maximise your own points.

You can not scare people twice in a row in the same area - but you can move to a different area and then come back if you want to scare in the same area again. If you accidentally do this you'll receive zero points for the second post.

Points are given out by Adventure and Magic at the end of the RP. The winner receives an emblem and a place in the Roleplay Corner's spotlight for at least a few weeks. Such honor.

Summary:

+5 = Successful Scare
+1 = Poor Scare (You have scared in the same location as the last poster)
BONUS +3 Each = Joint Scare

oOo

Spoiler:


If you are unsure of where you can go from your current location, just ask me. Usually it's the closest neighboring locations.

GOOD HINT: joint scares are best done via a so called "joint post", or JP as we call them. You can type one up together by sending a Private Message here on PC back and forth and building on to the text a little bit at a time until you have got a finished scare post to post! Another way is to go to titanpad or etherpad, get a color each and write live until your scare is finished and can be posted.

Well, I'll go for a non-Ghost type, because I'm hipster like that.

[B]PC Tag[B]: Plumbum
Character Name: You
Character Species: Ditto
Move: Transform

Quick Question? Obviously, in-game Ditto can maintain a Transformation only during one battle. What are the rules on Transformation here? How long can You be transformed and does it have to be something it's seen, or something it can currently see, etc.

and my weakness is that I cared too much...

I'd say it should be something it can see, to reflect how it's temporary in battles.

I'm rather excited I must say. Halloween is going to be a blast this year, so many events and activities that I can partake in online!

I might as well join. I'm not seeing very much love for Dark types so far, so I'll pitch in with one of my favorites!

Hi there. I noticed you were wondering about some scary Poison or Fire-type Pokemon. I can list a few...

Poison: Weezing, Muk, Swalot, Ariados, and possibly Roserade. Again, imagination is the key here.


Fire: Delphox, and... well, that's pretty much it.

Honestly, I don't see most Fire-types all that scary, excluding the lines of Chandelure and Houndoom.

I hope I was of help!

Pokémon moveset: argh there's so many useful ones! Mean Look, Shadow Sneak, Power Gem, Night Shade

i was just thinking it would be great to play as Castform as well, as it's kind of a tiny ghost-like Pokémon and it can even affect the weather (by making it storm and such). but Sableye is my favourite and argh...

Are you saying you wouldn't be scared if you met a tiny Charmander in a dark alley who lured you in and then suddenly turned all FIREEEEEEE

You can scare together with someone else, you know ;) Strategical moves! But not twice in a row with the same partner.

Alright, awesome. And therefore, just to ask there is one bit I asked and wasn't mentioned: How long can a Ditto keep a Transformation (I assume they can drop it at will, but what's the upper limit?)

I don't think it matters much in this RP so feel free to interpret it as you see fit ;)
