      Hey all

      Just posting to apologise for the unannounced absence over the last two weeks (ish?). Real life got in my way and unfortunately posting on here to give you all notice kept getting put off until it slipped my mind. Really very sorry and it shouldn't happen again. Luckily I wasn't interacting with anyone at the time.

      I can now post regularly again and would like to know if there is anyone interested in interacting with George or if its so close to the end of the IC day that I should just send him off to the dorm?

      Many thanks and again sorry for the lack of notice.

        You can interact with my Julius. He's reading under the shade of a tree, being the introvert that he is. He needs someone to bug him :D

        You can also meet up with Danielle and Lucia at the Cafeteria, your choice though...but I think that's a lot of RP Characters in one place. xD

          Thanks for the offers both of you! I think you're right Meganium it would be getting a bit out of control if i was to join the party in the cafeteria and George will most certainly catch up with Lucia and Danielle in the future. So I'll take up the offer of meeting this Julius fellow if thats still okay with you Silverexorcist!

          George's plans were to get some food from the cafeteria if i remember rightly but I'm sure he can change his mind! I'll work on a post tomorrow to explain exactly why he has taken so long getting back to the Academy and to have him bump into Julius for whatever reason i think up (possibly challenging with George also being a slight introvert although not to the extent Julius is if what i have read is anything to go by). Sure i can work something out but for now i need to sleep!

          Just imagine... if all 50 something characters in this RP got together in one place.

          ...*Shudder*

          Something to avoid, methinks.


          Anyway, the following users have been dropped for innactivity: kid mind, gunnerpow7, jrez, michaelatheuchicha

          There are now a lot of spots open in Raikou dorm. o3o

            Can I sign up for Raiku?

            Name: Artemisio Dell

            Nickname: Arti

            Age: 14

            Sex: Male

            Dorm: Raiku

            Appearance: Arti is about 5'11", and wears flashy clothes like his father. He has long, curly hair, but keeps it in a ponytail underneath his hat. (really a green beanie) He has thick eyebrows, and green eyes. He is rather skinny, with almost no muscle or fat. He's skin and bones, so to say. He wears big, reflective aviator sunglasses when outside, and puts them on top of his head when not. He is very handsome, but also very young.

            Personality: Arti has the need for everybody to like him. If someone doesn't, he does anything he can to win them over, even lie and pretend to be someone he isn't. He has problems understanding who he is, because he wears a coat of false personality to make people like him. He is quite humerus, and sometimes acts like a fool to make others laugh. He is a good artist too, and draws funny pictures to cheer people up. His biggest weakness is his habit of doubting himself.

            History: Arti was born in Unova, and given up for adoption at birth. he never knew his real parents, but his adoptive father was a well known trainer in Burgh's gym, and artist, Garrett. Garrett raised him himself, and Arti learned a lot about art, and bug pokemon of course. But Arti didn't specifically like bug pokemon, he was more interested in ghost and psychic types, but didn't want to dissapoint Garrett, who was oh-so-proud of his bug loving son. When Arti was 9, Garrett's Leavanny had an egg, which was given to Arti as a gift. Arti was excited to have a pokemon, ghost or not, and fell in love with his Sewaddle when it hatched. The two became great friends, and Sewaddle went wherever Arti went, usually attached to his shoulder. Arti battled challengers of the gym, along with others before they could challenge Burgh himself. Arti wasn't particularly good at battleing, but over the next 4 years he got quite good, and decided to challenge Lenora in Nacrene city when Sewaddle evolved into Swadloon. He lost, miserably. He returned home, crestfallen. Three weeks later, he received a letter inviting him to the pokemon trainer academy, from Professor Oak. Garrett was ecstatic, and gave Arti another pokemon, this time a Joltik. Arti accepted Joltik, still trying to make his father happy, and thought that if he went to this academy, he could catch all kinds of psychic and ghost pokemon. He left on the S.S. Aqua a few days later, bringing his two pokemon and his sketchbook with him.

            Pokémon: Swadloon, Joltik
            Species: Swadloon
            Personality: Swadloon is a very affectionate pokemon, especially towards Arti. They are always together, and are great friends. In battle, Swadloon is very aggressive and serious. He always does what Arti says, because over the years Arti has proved to be a good trainer and decision maker.
            Lvl 25
            Moves: Bug Bite, Razor leaf, protect, Energy ball, Camouflage

            Species: Joltik
            Personality: Joltik is very energetic, but because of his short time with Arti, he doesn't completely trust him, often electrocuting him for laughs. He does, however, battle seriously and wouldn't do anything to jeopardize the fight. This doesn't mean he always listens to Arti though, and often does what his instincts tell him to, ignoring his trainer.
            Lvl: 18
            Moves: Bug Bite, ElectroWeb, Screech, Pursuit

                    My personal opinion is that, overall, it's of a good quality. My nitpick would be that in many RP circles, it's considered "not cool" to say your character is related to a character of canon. Gym leaders kids, Ash's long lost brother, Alder's Boufallant's groomer etc.

                    Doing this is often thought to be altering or deciding canon (fact) that we don't know. We don't know if Burgh has kids (I always personally assumed he played for the other team), so we shouldn't decide he does. This is partly to avoid confusion being caused amongst other roleplayers, but also for your own benefit. If the anime expressly states in one episode "Oh, yeah, Burgh. He has no kids." it leaves you with egg on your face and a defunct character.

                    That's just my experience though! Yellow and Mega may take a different view. Like I said, otherwise the SU is of a high standard imo. Maybe change Burgh to "an accomplished bug-type trainer" if it is an issue for others?

                    Hope this helps. It all comes from a good place, so please don't feel like I'm trying to bring you down!

                      I agree it is of good quality but would also advise you to stay away from close relationships with prominent characters from the games/anime/manga. Its tempting i know but is looked down upon in RP'ing communities because of the frequency such characters seem to also be Mary Sue's. This is not saying yours is (from what i have read it is nowhere near!). Still it's best to try and stay away from such stigma in my opinion.

                      To sum up see what Yellow and Mega think but definitely think about removing Burgh as the characters father. You could add a much more subtle relationship to Burgh such as him growing up in Castelia City and holding Burgh in high regard as an inspiration or something similar. Something which does not affect canon but would affect your character.

                          Great first impression by the way. Pretty sure Grieger's gonna have something to say about THAT ... I'll hold out on posting until then. :D

                            Oh, okay. If theres a problem with Burgh, I can change it to a trainer in his gym. Which is really what I should do anyway, I really only used Burgh because he was an artist, like my character. Also because he's well known. So, I'll just fix it.

                            And....I'm hoping for a lot of interaction with other RPers, so if anybody has an idea for us to meet up, please tell me. (once I actually get accepted, of course)

                            P.S. About Burgh and which team he's on...theres a reason Arti was adopted. Lets just say that

                              Yeah, the flip out was awesome! I'll have fun letting Lucia react to it. Conflict just makes any rp very fun to me. :D

                                On the topic of relationships to canon characters, I'd like to put my two cents in mostly for the sake of giving my opinion XD Personally, it's never bothered me so long as the relationship is concrete and isn't something you simply decided for the sake of giving you an excuse to make your character overly powerful, or something. But as mentioned, it would be bothersome if there is an official statement about your the person your character is related to that disproves your character's very existence. But rp's are mostly imaginative plotlines that deviate from the canon anyways, so I don't think it's really that big of a deal, in the end. (Especially since I have difficulties calling the anime in particular 'canon') But I digress, your bio looks good.

                                  Yeah, thats pretty much how I feel.

                                  But, I'm not the only person here, and its not a big deal to me, so its no problem for me to have changed it. Like I said, it wasn't a selling point for my character anyway.

                                    Haha! It'd definitely be worth seeing!

                                    Mark, Lusca and Danielle (Well Ozzy at least) seem to have no idea what to say with this. But I think I'll have Lusca say something about Isaac's little speech , cause it was kind of rude and random for him to "omg off" on Lucia like that.

                                      The problem is I don't need mroe enemies. its getting annoying Isaac has like six, and I never intend it. People just turn his accidents into attacks on them and their values. I mean the potato wasn't even meant to do anything other then make Isaac come over and talk. I'm trying to fix it now with the others by using his sob story.

                                      Alright. Finally got my second opinion on Lieutenant Colonel Fantastic's app.

                                      My reaction is actually more to the thread itself. While having prior interaction with canons is a death sentence in fanfiction, we're not writing fanfiction, and in fact the same rules do not apply. Two completely separate audiences expecting completely separate things, generally.

                                      Besides, by the looks of it Fantastic has not done anything particularly out of character--

                                      ... I don't think you meant to imply exactly one of the several things you just implied.

                                      Regardless, considering what you just revealed it might be better if you did change that small detail yes. Just because it might cause some friction among RPers regarding proper treatment of major canons that I don't think either of us particularly want to deal with.

                                      But hey, once you do that you can consider yourself approved.

                                        People and their personal realities over how characters should be like...psshhh! D:< I never understood why people tend to get angry when a cannon character isn't portrayed the way they want. I've seen characters portrayed very differently among canon manga, anime, games, and so on, and yet people decide that if it's not the way they like, they've got to make a problem out of it >.<

                                        But yeah, you've got to take into account other people's opinions. As you said, Lt. Col. Fantastic (love the name, by the way) we're not the only ones here and the difference really doesn't matter, in the end.

                                          So....you're saying once Arti isn't Burgh's son, I can join? Because I did that recently.

                                          Oh...and sorry if my joke was offensive. I have nothing against the 'other team'. I just find Burghs position on it...humerous.

                                          Oh! ninja'd (sorta) by silver! Thanks man.

                                          And your name is cool too! LCF is an inside joke with my friend, whom I call Lt. Col. Amazing.
