Hi guys~ Great start so far. Everybody just jumped at that open thread, haha. I do have a note for Monday -- sorry if I wasn't clear, but the pokemon your character has are being held in another part of the Institute. Team Rocket won't just let you have a pokemon - essentially a weapon - would they? Naw. If you want them back, you'll have to find a way to get them back. Go adventuring and whatnot. And once you break all those rules, you'll probably have to escape, so it'll likely be a pretty drawn out thing, right? Once you're out, not much left to do in the RP is there? :D

No worries, not a problem; but please fix it when you get the chance. It shouldn't be too hard. You could have Checkers remembering his Charmander, perhaps?

Hello all. :)

We opened reeeally fast. :eek: Don't we need team rocket members? I could make one.

Ahaha, poor Vesper. The boys outnumber her 5 to 1 (6 to 1, if you count Dennis). Something tells me she won't let this slow her up, though. xD

And another note, stupid fire types. Anthony is gonna be really stoopid...

I'm the one with the heat. Just stay away from me and you should be good. lol

But yea, if we need Team Rocket members (Which I just noticed that we really do), I could make a sign up for one as well.

Thanks for taking care of that, Monday. Nice save. :)

Yeah, we opened SO fast. But I figured we needed a timely start, especially because we already had six people waiting. I had to put a cap on the number of players allowed to join. Any more than eight and I think it will be too hard to follow. So we've got one spot left for a Rocket, haha. Whoever posts the best Rocket sign up gets the part! No harm in a little friendly competition.

Meh, the idea of Marcus being gay doesn't really... work with his character. Then again, romance, PERIOD, doesn't really work with his charrie.

So, I'm thinking I'll make a rocket. a Female rocket. xD

Lol, yeah, I noticed that afterwards. Whoops?

Oh, well. If Anthony can just hit Marcus first, he should be good. Marcus doesn't radiate any heat.

Well, don't worry about that. Jason will prove himself strong in the arena. And possibly even outside of the arena, if someone can get him angry enough. Which is hard to do.

But he's just the weaker character of the group (Emotionally) Every group needs one. He'll warm up though as he gets to know everyone better

Cool. :)

Well, you're allowed to have two characters, so I figured it would be fine. :P

Lol, I like Anthony comparing everyone to chess pieces... But I can't figure out who Marcus is... O.o


The Enemy was the king- the most valuable piece on the board, but also the weakest. The Moody One and the Feraligatr-morph were rooks- powerful and blunt. The Shapeshifter and the Negotiator were craftier, less sharp edges and more smoke and mirrors. They were the bishops.

Which leaves the Female as the queen: the most powerful piece on the board. And I...am the knight? It suits. The knight is the only piece capable of taking out the queen without the queen being able to eliminate him. And the queen is the key.



Uh, is he the Negotiator...? Because Marcus is not crafty. xD He's not smart enough. But the metaphors and stuff is really cool.

I really like all our characters. No one is similar, so this should be interesting. Either they'll be really tight, or rip each others head's off. xD

LOVING the chess metaphor. Because Vesper is queen. HAH. But that also means Anthony will try to kill her??? I'm getting Negotiator from that Marcus predicament as well. I think it's because he's trying to get everyone to cool down and not fight.

I just like Anthony in general, I must say. But I like everybody. I like how completely dissimilar they all are.

AcrossTheUniverse
09-26-2010, 05:34 PM
The chess metaphor has totally been my favorite so far. I liked how Jason was the King. I felt like so hated, yet dangerous at the same time. It was scary but cool. lol

I agree with how different they all are makes everything interesting. It might be hard to get all of those personalities to work together.

Yeah, I was running out of awesomely awesome epic titles to give people. The Nice Guy just doesn't work, does it? So, tranland was right on the reason why I called him that. Negotiator for the win.

Yes. Anthony's going to kill her. Anthony's going to go batshit insane and kill everyone. Nah, just kidding- the knight is supposed to be a metaphor for his eccentricity, and, then, afterwards, I was like, "Hey, wait a minute!" So, yeah.

Hmm, so what I can gather....

Marcus is the nice, moral support guy.

Vesper is... the girl... uhm... Yeah. She's difficult to define. The cynic?

Checkers seems to be anithero-ish. I dunno. Monday says he'll turn around, though.

Matthias is the smart one.

Dennis is the tough guy. OH YEAH. /hit

Aaaand Anthony is the one who's going to murder us in our sleep... Or while we're awake. Something tells me he's not picky. xD

I plan having Vesper notice, actually. Depends on when I end up posting, haha.

I just thought of something, and this goes for all of us: if you want your character to interact with another character (which is SO HARD not to do... I feel like I would bunny everybody if it was allowed), initiate a direct interaction. It should involve whoever you're trying to get attention from. i.e. if you fall, nobody cares, but if you fall on someone, they will probably react. lol

I am like this close to making match ups and having an NPC deliver them in the morning. But that's kind of godmodding, even though it is my RP. I dunno. Or we could all just be released into the Arena for our cell's "shift" and fight or not fight whoever we want. Or Doodle's rocket can send us in. I dunno. Thoughts?

Personally, I like the idea of match-ups. A free-for-all would just get messy and unorganized pretty quick, and one and one let's character development and relationships and messy stuff like that flower.

Also, like you said, it is your RP. Even if it was god-modding, I think the creator has full rein to do whatever they feel like to what he or she created.

She ripped off her blazer. I must be insane. She ripped off her blouse. I must be insane. The black, close-fitting halter underneath her clothes covered her front and left her white back bare, where purple-black spikes sprang up like the volatile aft of a Gengar.

Hello everyone~ the RP looks great! Thank you all for your timely contributions. It's not dragging, per se, because the action is heightening - it's just that our characters have been stuck in this one place for a very long time. So! The way I see it, we have a few options:
1) Allow the cell scene to continue to unfold.
2) Cut the cell scene a little short and have the Rockets move our characters somewhere else. i.e. the recreational quarters or the dining hall.
3) Cut the cell scene short and go straight to the Arena.
Personally, I'd like to finish this scene, because I think we can do it and still be able to move on fairly concisely, but I know some of you have been itching to get to the Arena. Btw if you have any matchup suggestions or if you don't want to fight please let me know, because we have an odd number of Morphs. :/ However I won't mind taking Vesper out if everyone else wants to fight.

The matchups, for whenever we end up getting to the Arena, are as follows, because I think it would make some great tension between certain characters (please feel free to discuss and edit. If there are any qualms, don't hesitate to voice them!):
Feraligatr vs. Flareon
Metang vs. Arcanine
Charizard vs. Gengar
aaaand Matthias. Sorry about that. I haven't read enough about your character to know him very well, Mewcario. If you still want to attend the Arena, perhaps you can battle an NPC? Or you could always take my spot. But Matthias seems... too crafty or something. Maybe you could sneak around the Institute and devise an escape plan? You've got a knack for that. Just a thought.

DISCUSS! :D


EDIT:
WAIT. Jason and Anthony should totally fight, shouldn't they? Okay. So.

Metang vs. Flareon (mortal enemies)
Feraligatr vs. Charizard (the tough guys)
Gengar vs. Zoroark (friends of the darkness)
aaaaaand Marcus. NOOOOO. This is impossible! Unless someone really wants to battle an NPC!

Doodlebop
09-29-2010, 04:50 PM
I would like to let the cell scene unfold. This is getting really crazy awesome, and to cut it short would be mean. I really want to know what happens!

I don't mind Marcus not being able to fight. After all, I'm the only one with two characters, so... But random thought- did you want only eight characters, or eight people playing? If you let Tokyokit join as her morph, it would make eight morphs, not to mention add another girl to the mix. I've played in RPs with waaaaay more than eight charries and it was fine. Your decision, though.

However, assuming Marcus may be sitting out, possibly he could have accidentally injured during the brawl, and he'll have to sit out? He could have accidentally been hit by Dennis while he was on the warpath... Or something.

Random note: I feel extremely sorry for whoever ends up fighting Dennis... o.o'

Actually, my plan isn't escape. After all, they could escape, but 1.> Team Rocket would hunt them down, 2.> Pokemorphs would not be able to 'blend in' with normal people (except Matthias with his Illusion ability), and 3.> Team Rocket could have someone in the media business say that a contageous disease has be unleashed by Cipher or some other evil organization that isn't Teram Rocket and not only put bounties on the heads of the 'infected', but also start manufacturing phony vaccines for this disease, except a few of the treated people could be knocked out easily and swept away for more experimenting.

Nope, Matthias, like Dracula from Castlevania veiws humanity, wants to destroy Team Rocket from within. Start feeding false info, hacking systems, making Rocket members fight with each other though his ability of Illusion and then go after the Admins, and finally, Giovanni. Use their own evils against them until they destroy themselves. So basically,conquest!

Now that I think about it, Vesper probably wouldn't be up for fighting. Curse+tranquilizer=meh, not today. So I guess... as it stands...
Metang v. Flareon
Feraligatr v. Charizard
Zoroark v. Arcanine (smarty vs. dummy?)
aaaaand Vesper. Which makes more sense. I'd rather have everyone else fight, anyway; my character's got enough attention already.

And I think I'm good with this smaller RP. The Morphs' relationships are all already worked out and everything, and it's more... intimate, or something.

But it's been awhile, and seeing as we're a little hindered by your lack of accepting Doodle's attack or not, I am tempted to invoke my self-attributed power as creator and accept it for you. Feel free to post here or PM me whether or not Dennis got stuck with the dart. If I don't hear from you by this time tomorrow, I'll decide the outcome. But I wish you luck with your computer!

EDIT: Just reread your post, Emotional Bone/Gentle Manne. If you can't post at all after that... well, I guess I'll just have to override the whole dart thing. It's such a small matter, but it does matter. Hopefully no hard feelings. It's official: Dennis has been hit by the tranquilizer dart. Let's resume.

No one was doing anything apart from worrying so I thought I could spice it up by getting Checkers mad.

P.S This could be a good chance for Jason to prove himself, by calming Checkers down but be careful...he can bite.

OHSNAP. Don't kill Alex, Checkers, she's the only Rocket we've got!

He wont even if no one can calm him down I wont make him kill her. Don't worry :)

Don't worry Doodle!! I won't let her die

Lookin' good, guys. Thanks for all the contributions. I would be contributing myself, but my character is passed out on the floor. :(((((

Doodlebop
10-09-2010, 12:20 PM
So, should the Rockets just leave Vesper and Dennis in the cell, or remove them? They prolly need medical attention...

nvm. I'll just say that they're going to, and if anyone objects to it (read: tran) I'll fix it.

AcrossTheUniverse

Rats. I read this too late, or I would have switched the day during my most recent post. Anyone is free to start the new day whenever they please. Whoever gets to it first. Feel free to do it now, Doodle - or anybody. If not, I'll do it next time around. :)

Doodlebop
10-12-2010, 01:44 PM
How 'bout Alex and Vesper finish their introductions, then I'll switch to next day? :)

EDIT: Did so. So, what are the matchups now? With Dennis being unconscious and all, and Vesper not in top form.

tranland
10-13-2010, 01:19 AM
I'm thinking that since we have an even number now (not having heard from our Gentle Manne friend since he dropped off the face of the earth), the matchups should be pretty even. Matchups are officially as follows (unless, of course, there are any objections - as usual):

Flareon v. Metang
Arcanine v. Gengar
Charizard v. Zoroark

Doodlebop
10-13-2010, 03:27 PM
Looks good. Once people have a chance to post and say the matchups are cool or whatever, I'll get Alex to go give them out

I've returned!

So, Dennis has been carted off to a separate room, correct?

tranland
10-15-2010, 03:13 AM
Welcome back, Gentle Manne! For now, yes. Minor bunnying has occurred in your absence and Dennis has been moved to another room. But your character's not in the matchups right now. However! I can organize it so you can play winner/loser of some match or other. Sound good?

Windchaser54321

Welcome back, Gentle Manne! :D Good to see you. Dennis is presently in the medical bay. I think. Not really sure.

Is not appreciating everyone talking in spanish. x.x The only thing I remember is that gato means cat. And I'm not even sure about that...

Haha, I love how everybody has decided to post "today." I feel like that's not gonna happen, lol.

What does "today" mean for you guys, anyway? Like, time zones and that sort of thing? I'm just curious. I love that kind of stuff. I'm in the US, west coast.

Doodlebop
10-16-2010, 12:25 PM
US, Central. I think. I CAN NEVER REMEMBER.

But, right now, it's 7:24. I'm an early bird. (Mostly because I'd neeeever get on the computer if my brother got up first... because then he'd get on forever... and then my dad.... yup.))

Go ahead. I think if there were any objections, they would have been mentioned by now. So! Whenever you're ready.

Why do I get a terrible feeling Checkers is going to kill Alex in her sleep...?

Alex: He can try, but he won't get far.

Wait, when did you start talking?

Alex: Now.

...?

Um, anyway, when do we start the fights?

Gentle Manne
10-20-2010, 07:06 PM

I'll pick Checkers vs. Matthias.

Either fight will be quite interesting.

As for the fights, I can start them in my next post, which should be tomorrow or thereabouts.

Arena Rules

1. All rules of the RP continue to apply.
2. Keep it fair. Be especially wary of godmodding here: throw punches, don't land them.
3. Your post may be shorter than usual during a battle.
4. When a fight reaches three posts each (total six), start thinking about finishing blows.
5. Spectators, feel free to post in the middle of a battle. In fact, I encourage it.
6. I, Tranland, will settle any disagreements.
7. Your character doesn't win anything but merit in the Arena.

Enjoy!

Hey, everyone, thanks for bearing with us on this battle thing. I've never done this before and I'm still getting a feel for organization. Feel free to post with your interactions or side stories to stay in the loop (because I probably will do that during all of your battles :happy:). It should wrap up shortly.

Hey, guys, so there's a new character. :P You ever have one of those moments, as a writer, when your characters just take on a life of their own? Yeah, this was one of those times. So I made a Rocket. I've posted his profile in the sign up thread.

So here's the plan:

- Doodlebop, go ahead and finish up with Marcus, and then we will begin with Flareon v. Metang. After Doodlebop's response, Across The Universe or Windchaser can feel free to begin your battle.

- Gentle Manne, I realize that I have broken my own rule and added another character. So, if you would still like to use the Rocket you submitted earlier, he can be accepted. This goes for everyone: y'all can have a Rocket if you want.

- Don't feel shut out just because you aren't battling! Please do continue to post! And thank you for being so patient!

Wow, Marcus won. I was sure he would get the pulp beaten out of him. O.o Granted, Vesper was injured. If she wasn't, Marcus would be in trouble. ^^' He still is, I think.

And I'm glad you added more to Dr. Harper. I thought he was interesting! And yay, another executive to stab in the back hang out with Alexandra. :D

Gah! I've been really busy, lately, but now I've finally managed to grab some free time...

My posts are going to become really infrequent, even on the weekends, guys, probably through November. NaNoWriMo and real life issues combined, y'know...

Also, I'm a little confused. Is it Metang v.s. Flareon right now, or Charizard v.s. Zoroark? I'm going to write my post along tranland's guidelines (because she's/you're, like, the RPM and everything), but I'll ask for a little clarification, just in case.

No worries, Windchaser. Yes, it is currently Metang v. Flareon. Keep your shirt on, Monday! I had hoped everyone had seen my post about who was going next...

YOU'RE DOING NANOWRIMO TOO???!!?!1! :))))))
That's just really exciting. Good luck. I'm doing it more... casually, I guess. I don't have time to do it for real, so for me it's just good motivation.

I do draw a lot of pictures, though. Marcus and Alex (mostly Marcus) keeps sneaking into my sketches. xD

Does anyone want to see? :o

Yes! Please share!

This is who I have so far. I'm going in sign up order. Hopefully I'll end up doing everybody. IT IS ADDICTING. You guys be sure and let me know if something is off with your character. Like, if you envisioned a different outfit or different hair. Can't make any promises on fixing it, though, since I only started doing this yesterday. XD

Yeah, Across The Universe is nowhere. We'll get to Anthony's battle soon, though. If ATU ever shows up. If not, we do have the Feraligatr Dennis waiting in the wings.
