Imagine taking a group of people out of time and separating them from the rest of humanity. Imagine placing them on an island with creatures they have never seen before. How would they develop? What would they produce better than the rest of the world? Where would they lack? How would they govern themselves? What laws would they use? This was the foundation behind this project. It was quite interesting to imagine a slightly odd world.

The project is being built using RPGMXP and Pokémon Essentials.



In 1557 twenty-two people from many different nationalities survived a shipwreck off the coast of the island now known as Coltar. Upon crashing on the shores of the island the survivors fled in land to escape the Pokémon that were hunting them in the night. They dove into a cave and hoped to have not been followed. An enraged Pokémon lurked in the dark and lashed out at the survivors. When all hope had been lost a psychic Pokémon appeared and outsmarted the beast. The beast was sealed inside the cave. As reward for their strength and bravery, the Pokémon carved out seventeen stones. Each stone possessing ultimate strength and control over a certain type of power found within these Pokémon. These stones were issued to one person in each of the seventeen bloodlines that had survived the creature. Phanouel Bello, owner of the Dark Stone and the man who first volunteered to fight the beast, became leader of the survivors.

In 1597 Bastille Clavouro, owners of the Ghost Stone, attempt to release the trapped beast to overthrow Phanouel Bello's son. When confronted by Bastille Bourbabel a battle raged. Bastille Bourbabel rendered Clavouro's plans useless. However, Igor Rett seized the moment to take power for himself. Using the knowledge of the stones, and the fighting stone which he possessed, he summoned the Psychic Pokémon from fourty years prior. When three of the Pokémon arrived they were able to re-seal the cave. Using the power of the Psychic Pokémon, Rett created the prophecy which would ensure the enraged Pokémon would never again threaten the island. Only when all stones are present alongside the chosen six can the seal be broken. Giratina will be free. These six souls shall represent everyone. The Good and the Bad. The Child, the Man (or Woman) and the Ghost. To further ensure no one would dare attempt to release the Pokémon once more he used the Pokémon's power to forever send the dead of the families of Bourbabel and Clavouro into the distortion world and revel in what he believed they wished for upon the regular world.

In the present day Coltar is divided once more. The Lords ruling over each of the four segments are at war with each other. You, born in the West are undergoing an awkward northern occupation. You keep having dreams. Dreams in which a man is speaking to you. The day after one of these dreams your brother comes to check on you before trying to wind-up the local northern captain. When his prank goes horribly wrong your time to shine arises. However, Austin is upset that you obtain your first Pokémon before him. Determined to prove himself to your father he sets off to rejoin the unoccupied West. Little to both your knowledge, the seventy third prophecy selection has just collapsed causing the prophecy to re-select its six components. Meanwhile, a group of people known as the Coltar Re-unification Party are seeking to over throw the Lords and reunite the island for the good of everyone, or so they claim...

Lloyd/Sarah Jackson
The player's character with default names which are changeable. At 14 years old with little time left, you help rescue your brother from his trouble making activities after James Spitz allows you to capture a pokémon. You are thrown head first into a wild Swanna chase around the north after Austin who initially seems determined to find your father and rejoin the free west. Meanwhile the activities of the Coltar Reunification party start to threaten innocent lives and the prophecy begins to play into motion once more. As the protagonist you must the "bad" side of the prophecy and protect the world from the consequences already set in motion.



Austin Jackson
Austin Jackson is the main antagonist's brother. After fleeing to join the unoccupied West he finds himself entangled in the prophecy. With the pokémon he stole he will do whatever it takes to combat evil and save the island from a fate worse than destruction...


James Spitz
Orphaned at 13 when a fire at Marsten Hall (started by his parents) killed them, he has grown up cold. During the regional war in his childhood he became exceptionally attached to an officer in his town. When he discovered he was part of the prophecy as a child he was excited at the chance for adventure. However, upon witnessing the murders of many people he cared about he grew even colder once more. He is unhappy to have been dragged into the prophecy again. Upon losing his son in the last conflict he rejects any new friendships or relationships to avoid feeling anymore emotional pain. He resides in Finar with his adoptive parents (former Lord) Cohnen Kek and Sarah Kek.


Clarence Bourbabel
Born in 1950, and taken from his family at the age of 3 to train with the Southern Guard he is well prepared for whatever fate throws at him. His death in 1990 severely hurt James Spitz. Upon escaping his punishment for breaking the rules of the prophecy he assists the Good side of the new roll of the prophecy in an attempt to recover for his family's sins. Overall he is incredibly wise. He fears the power of the 18 stones being used to destroy. He will do everything he can to assist someone who is willing to stop the bad side of the prophecy for which he was once supposed to be apart of.

Austin Jackson
Austin Jackson is the main protagonist's brother. After fleeing to join the unoccupied West he finds himself entangled in the prophecy. With the pokémon he stole he will do whatever it takes to take revenge on his younger sibling. Although, more beloved by everyone he still feels like he needs to make himself known.

Lloyd Clavouro
Head of the Coltar reunification party. His rise to power has caused a great worry accross the region for the Elite Lords of the regions, and also has grabbed the attention of the Master Guard. Although the Master Guard is yet to act against the party due to the cautious actions of the Master of the island himself, they do monitor the actions of the Party closely. Lloyd Clavouro is a wanted Lord from the rule of Piscar for his disobedience to hand himself in on both the betrayal of his Lord and the demise of his Lord. Lord Clavouro's aim remains a mystery to the party. He is the man of the bad. His destiny is to live and die by the prophecy. Using the power of the released Giratina he is constantly extending his own life at the cost of others.

Jacob Spitz
After dying in combat at the age of 17 on Mount Silvern he was banished to the Distortion World on death by mistake. The mistake twisted and corrupted his mind. He blames his father for his death and upon being picked for the prophecy as the Ghost representative for the bad he promised to even the score with his killer and his father. He believes to rule with kindness is but a lie. To rule as the Master is but a dream.

The Coltar Reunification Party
This group of "criminals" started to appear in substantial enough numbers to be noted as a nuisance in 1995. In 2006 the second major war erupted in Coltar forcing it to split into 4. It was rumored that the Reunification Party unintentionally caused this war to occur. However, during the final days of the war atop Mount Silvern the leader of the C.R.P was killed. Despite this dramatic disaster for the group a new leader emerged from nowhere and took control. His agenda remains a mystery. All the party need to believe is that this man will lead them to a unified Coltar once more. If you believe such a thing should ever occur. Since the start of the wars in 2015 the reunification party has been known to have attacked the North and the East in particular. They seem to be after some sort of power...

Lloyd Clavouro
After seemingly appearing from nowhere and taking the party from the brink of collapse the party has risen in popularity. Not only has this caused concern for the Elite Lords of the regions, but also has grabbed the attention of the Master Guard. Although the Master Guard is yet to act against the party due to the cautious actions of the Master of the island himself, they do monitor the actions of the Party closely. Lloyd Clavouro is a wanted Lord from the rule of Piscar for his disobedience to hand himself in on both the betrayal of his Lord and the demise of his Lord. Lord Clavouro's aim remains a mystery to the party.
