    CURRENT ISSUES

    1. How much control should be given to the individual rper over various different NPCs, and should there be instances where the control is solely in the hands of the creator (RM)? (Post #15)

    2. Should characters have individual mentors that are controlled by the individual? (Post #23)

    NOTICE: I have referenced the post numbers to the issues that need to be discussed, so you can see the whole issue and follow the conversations. (Aren't I such a nice person!) XD

      Thank you. xD
      I'm always the unfortunate one who has her Pokemon duplicated. xDD

        I'll keep that in mind when I'm looking for someone to copy off of! XD

        This is my first rp in a really really really really long time so I'm hoping that everything works out well!

          I'm sure it will. :] You have a very good plot. Take it from someone who doesn't usually like Pokemorphs...your RP is extremely interesting. I can't wait to start.

            I can agree with that and I think I have an idea on how to make sure that no one gets their Pokemon duplicated. After a Pokemon is chosen by someone that is accepted into the rp, you should post it into the first page on a list of Pokemon that have been taken already so everyone knows when a Pokemon has already been taken.

                Thank you for your insight. If it gets be a problem I will use that idea.

                As far as my selection is concerned. I used to be a whole lot tougher. Actually...I don't think i would have even accepted the sign-up for myself for this rp back then. I was a tough cookie. I had to water down my standards because i realize I'm not as good as I was a year ago or so. So let us all be thankful that I'm not as strict as I was. XD

                However, i do believe that the time you put into your profile shows when you submit it. I know people are busy, and I know they have other things to do besides fill out sign-up sheets, but i just ask that your work shows some effort.

                  I am living on the other side of the world (Asia), so my response to the thread can be slow.

                      Wow...I just want to apologize for last night, I was a real grump. But hey, I can be generous when I'm nasty too! I did spell out exactly what I want to see, so that way people aren't all like "well how come..." or what not. Right? I try to be fair and give everyone a break.

                      There are more people signing up than I originally planned for. Oh boy, it's been even longer since I've been in an rp with a lot of people, this should be interesting indeed.

                        Hello, I'm here to sign up! However, I don't really have time now to do a signup, so in a few hours, maybe, I'll post it. Besides, I'm having a hard time deciding to be a morph (something like that) of Roserade or Froslass. *goes to think*

                        At first I was going to go with Ninetales, but that means I'd be tempted to have nine special powers, which is way too many.

                          Well there really is a lot of people here that have joined. So let us get our intros into the rp all taken care of and out of the way.

                          I'm so excited. I don't think I've lost my touch! YAYNESS! Here we go. I'll edit my last post with my intro!

                            xD; I'm willing to change whatever.
                            I tried to make it obvious that Ash can't choose which minds she reads, and she gets a swarm of them at once [which causes the headache], but since I could only bunny Ev, I only used two voices. Think what's-his-name from Heroes. The cop. xD;
                            The healing is...just minor cuts and scrapes. Stuff that bleeds for maybe a minute before stopping.
                            Ehhhh just tell me what you want me to change. :]

                                Sorry. I deleted my comment. It wasn't very nice, and i was like "eh...I'm too mean..."

                                Anyway, I've been thinking about what I'm going to do about npc's. there are a lot of them, and some of them have major movers of the plot, like how Enigma will be appearing rather soonish (relative to rp not in real time). I'm deciding whether I should just go ahead and take over them when they appear or not. Because if i do, that drastically takes the length out of most post, since it handicaps the rper to only controlling one character.

                                I haven't taken control of Dr. Vinton, only because it's a real pain to only post three paragraphs and wait for me to post for you to continue. So what you got done in one post would have taken many more. So he truly isn't a npc if you take it at it's literal meaning. he's more of a community character for now. I can foresee some times where I would need to take control of certain npcs to progress the plot. I don't know, though.

                                Very tricky, because I want to allow the greatest about of freedom for each rper. I've been contemplating posting a series of other characters and just having people sign up for them and whichever ones don't get chosen I take. As far as the side characters such as Dr. Vinton and what not. But even that has serious problems. See why I can never make decisions? I keep arguing with myself! XD

                                Anyway, those are my thoughts, yes they are scattered, but I whole-heartedly believe that an rp is a collaborative effort so therefore the people rping in them should have as much say as the creator. I suppose I do ultimately have creative control of the big picture, but that's besides the point.

                                There I go contradicting myself again. Well have fun reading this if you can make any sense out of it.

                                  Hey Raichu Master I posted in the other thread but I think it's better if I post here.

                                  I'm also going to join in but I'm still deciding on what pokemon I want my character to morph into so I'm sorry it's taking a little time!

                                    Here is my sign-up- the great hybrid cyborg Salamence thingy!!!

                                    Name: Oh noes, I forgot it! Oh wait, yeah… Brad Matthews.
                                    Nickname: Apocalypse.
                                    Age: 16
                                    Gender: The Space Needle, not the Harbor Tunnel…
                                    Pokemon: THIS… IS… SALAMENCE!! Yeah!!! Anyways, ye’ olde Brad can use draconic energy to open portals (Dragons don’t really translate to our world that well...), and heal himself of minor to medium wounds. His cyborg insides allow usage of various weapons, but only ones that can be handheld or mounted by a normal person (no nukes, or large missiles... or torpedoes... awww. As a pokemon, he can only use machine guns, or missiles- no grenades, or other guns... too small.))(There, Evaky. No longer overpowered...)
                                    Description: Heh. Yeah. Brad is melanistic, and has some albino features. His hair is completely white, and in a disheveled, spiked hairstyle. His eyes are blood red, and slanted upward, an odd trait in humans. His muscular, well-endowed (Heh!) body is pitch black, black as night, etc. He is ambidextrous, but a horrible accident (he crashed his motorcycle into an oil tanker, lit on fire, and fell off a cliff) gives him a very… robotic body. Some of his insides are completely or partially robotic, like his eyes, ears, and sense of touch. His digestive system is completely gone, and the food is chemically converted using his robotic stomach. His armor, on his shoulders, on his arms (only to elbows), back, legs, and cheeks is golden in color. In addition, cannons can sprout from most of his body- he is well protected against his many enemies. He is a gigantic person- at 6’6”, he is… intimidating. His mark of being hybrid is a scar on his back- a hexagram. This mark is present on the forehead of Salamence, in a deep blue hue- many of those familiar with Pokemon recognize the trait.
                                    Half Description: Brad gains 12 white wings on his back, and clear Salamence armor. He grow longer, and gains a blue aura around him. His eyes go pure white, and his hair changes red. In this state, he looks like an angel- a really demented angel. He can’t use his weapons in this state, but his energy nlasts and hybrid powers are as powerful as the normal weapons would be.
                                    Pokemon Description: A long, extremely large black Salamence with white wings. He has large red eyes, golden belly armor, the same armor in the aforementioned places of his body, and new parts of the tail. His claws and fangs are larger, and Brad is more muscular (and well endowed) than most Salamence. In this form, he looks more regal, and he goes into this more often- some Salamence respect him, and the others just leave him alone. However, he still has no friends among the Salamence either.
                                    Personality: Brad is a quiet, lonely person, and seems violent. He hates being bothered, and acts cold and malicious around most who bother him- he comes off as psychotic. However, he is merely misunderstood.

                                    After years of torment and misery in public schools, Brad had developed an iron curtain… in more than one way. He isolated himself, and enjoys silence and loneliness. His shell protects him, but inside he is still miserable- knowing he is a freak. However, this feeling has died as he chose Pokemon form more and more- Salamence are quite… liberal in their society. When his shell is endangered, a psychological shield kicks in.

                                    If someone annoys him too much, he starts getting violent. Eventually, his face twists in a demented smile. This is why he warns people about his… anger. Outside of this, he is calm, cool, and collected. In any situation, he is a pillar of calm.
                                    In addition, Brad is quite the sharp-tongued cynic. He is disgusted with the experimentation, and intolerance in the world, of any race. He believes that the world… has gone to crap. He despises optimism- he sees it as the “dumbasses are at it again, saying we’re fine… bullmuk.” Brad enjoys reading, Jeopardy, alcohol, and silence. He also loves cold temperatures- ironic for a dragon.

                                              Will there be other gifted students which are not entirely controlled by RPers?

                                              Can we bunny teachers?

                                              Can't wait for the lessons to start.

                                                Along with the other issue (...which no one has yet to comment on...) I'm also debating on that one as well. Will the be other characters? That would depend on how many people Enigma actually experimented with. They didn't experiment on a large population so the numbers are already small, so I'm not sure whether there will be or not.

                                                As far as lessons go I'm still trying to figure that out. In the anime series there really doesn't seem to be any education system, and neither is there one in the games except the occasions where there are schools to education on pokemon, but I think it's just assumed (maybe). But here is my decision:

                                                Like in X-men evolution, the purpose of the academy is to help the mutants cope with society, which is the aim of this university. So therefore, the students were expected to attend public school, which I think is what may happen, just because that's the more interesting route, and that's how Pokemon Evolution has always worked. And there has to be coping with the outside world.

                                                However, in either scenario, there are going to be "instructors" who mentor and train each person how to control their power, so there are other characters within the university.

                                                I have an idea, but i want all of your views in it before I edit my post:

                                                Each character has a mentor controlled by the rper (I'm debating whether to need another sign-up sheet for this). But along with the mentor there is also a head of training in each area which is controlled by me.

                                                What do you guys think? now there are two issues.

                                                NOTE: Please read first post for current issues that are in discussion.

                                                  NPC issue- I think there should be community NPCs. Dr. V, for instance. Either that, or you could have people sign up for NPCs, but allow people to have some limited control over them. For example, let's say I'm controlling a character named Tina, who happens to be...erm...she'll be the librarian. Now, Rai wants to check out a book. He could go to the library and get said book without waiting for me to post. I hope that made sense.

                                                  Personally, I like the idea of having mentors. Obviously, Ashleigh isn't going to need the same type of training as Tyler. I think that's a good idea.

                                                  One quick question, just because I'm not sure I understand. Are we attending SCHOOL at the university? Or are we all attending a local high school, where we'll be mixed in with normal kids?
