I'm sure there are going to be many questions needed to be answered, so be sure to clarify things with me and ask as many questions as you want so you get things right and aren't un-sure about something.

Questions about Missions, The Final Battle, and anything else are totally welcome. I can answer anything!

Hey I have a question we are killing pokemons in the missions that are on the opposing team. We could use regular moves.

Yes, in the missions, you are going up against NPC's unless an opposing RP character is in the area and wants to thwart your mission progress and delay it from completion.

And by regular moves, like Fire Blast and Water Gun, stuff like that? Pokemon are meant to be able to battle. You could use those moves to wear them down, but you have to remember some types trump others. If you're water, and you constantly use Hydro Pump on a Fire Pokemon, even after it's fainted, and you go for the overkill, obviously the Pokemon will most likely die because of the pain you are inflicting upon it. The Pokemon body can only take so much.

But usually regular moves will just be used to weaken other Pokemon and using weaponry or special abilities is what REALLY gets the job done.

They're all Pokemon. The human race has been pretty much completely exterminated.

Given the fact that my dirty little Russian ghost is more of a supportive role than an offensive one, I assume it's alright if two Pokemon go for a mission? Seeing as I kinda wanted to go for the Saffron Assassination myself, I wanna ask before I go there with Sensa. xD Assuming, of course, Shinji doesn't mind the creepy, vodka stench of a company? :D

EDIT: ALSO, I'm getting the history done and will post as soon as I finish that and post on Merines. :3

ALL Basic missions must be completed to advance to Secondary. A lot more missions will be available as you advance (Notice how both factions only start out with 4 mission). All Secondary Missions must be completed to advance to Faction missions, and at that point when your faction progresses past Basic and Secondary missions, you will enter the Faction category of Missions.

Lol, I was about to ask you a question about that when you edited the above in.

Aw man, I was hoping missions weren't being distributed on a graduated scale. I wanted do a long con on the Viridian City rebels via impersonation, isolation, picking them off, rinsing and repeating and hopefully learning something about the Gloss' future actions along the way, but I imagine straight up beating them into submission would be the more prudent response, since the Alliance is racing against time while the Gloss can win by timing out and I don't suspect we have a few RL days to spare for an espionage mission.

Welp, gotta find something else to accomplish.

EDIT: On second thought, I'm going with the espionage plan. It fits my character and all the other current missions, with the possible exception of Saffron's Assassination, look like they're going to culminate into a slaughterhouse, with mayhem and mass casualties on the line. This is like the one mission, currently, I can try finessing without resorting on overt aggression (forest supply would be the other one, but Shade's going in with bomber jets or something, so I imagine the subtly ship has sailed, lol.) If, at any point in time, one of my teammates feel I'm posting too slow, they can pull me out and engage the rebels. Or they can engage the rebels while I'm there.

GloryDays, what I'm flying is basically the future version of a helicopter / fighter jet. There is an image of it in the Weapons / Vehicles section of the RP if you want to check it out. It's called The Assault Fighter.

And you may do whatever missions you want, as long as they are for your faction. (You cannot do Gloss missions if you are Alliance).

*shudder* History. Sucks. Bollocks. D: I have never been good at them, I hope you dun'mind the simple little past she has. I honestly never like histories, I always focus ont he character herself and prefer thinking of a past as I go, so I'll probably abound on it after a while. xD

Everyone, please disregard all posts by CrazyTrainer, he has been removed from the Role Play.

Just for some clarification, everyone needs to read the rules. I'm not strict at all, but when it comes to lazy posting and horrible grammar / spelling / god-modding / teleportation, I will bring down the hammer upon you and call you out right away. I want to have fun and it's always easier on the RP creator to just follow the rules, which I'm sure both Neo and Gaby can agree with.

And to address your mission question, you may go on a mission with another character if you want. Just because one RP'er goes on it, doesn't mean it's only theirs to complete. The more characters on a mission, the easier the mission will be to complete.

Are there going to be legendary pokemon in the RP?

Go over the background for the Role Play. There is some stuff about Legendary Pokemon in one of the Location descriptions...they won't really play a huge role in this first installment of the RP, but in sequels, they will be vital to either faction's success.

You may find them, and interact with them, according to the "hint" as to where the 3 Legendary birds, Mewtwo, and Mew are located. All 5 are together. The Legends prefer not to get involved for the time being...unless they are called upon.

Thats fine it would be more fun if Sensa did the Saffron mission with someone else.

Yeah, so if you look at the missions and at the bottom of each one it says
"Completed by: ----- "

Whatever RP characters were involved will have their names down in the database for completing that mission. The more missions you do as a Role Player, the more experience your Character receives, thus increasing their chances to survive The Final Battle at the end of the RP.

It's cool bleep, and as far as who kills the disloyal Aggron, you'll have to discuss that with Gaby and Shinji and whoever else on the mission. Everyone needs to be aware though of who's on the mission so there isn't any confusion as to who kills him, and if he's actually dead, ect. Just so he doesn't die like 3 times by 3 different RP'er's lol

You can talk to them in here, or shoot them a PM. Up to you. Everyone's doing a great job though. Gloss already has 1 mission completed, thanks to HitmonFighter - he took care of those refugees.

And nevermind again. I'll be away 'till Wednesday. :/

Short story: I have a dumb friend who I'm helping out.

Long story: One of my absent-minded friends forgot his girlfriend's birthday was right around the corner, say next Tuesday, and he stumbled upon this realization two nights ago. Luckily for him, when panic sets in, his thought immediately come up with makeshift solutions and he's fixated on playing his amnesia off as a disarming act, masking his true intent of a "surprise" concert. Now he only has to organize a concert for her. Shockingly, he's almost got everything in place--a venue to play at, a way to get her to the venue without revealing the surprise, and, most importantly, a band to play songs dedicated to her.

... Even if it is a little Frankenstein-esque (made up of people skilled in their own craft but unfamiliar with the other bandmates), it'll have to do for his impromptu "surprise" concert. He drafted me as the drummer.

For the next couple of nights, 'till the fifteenth, we're suppose to camp out in his garage to rehearse. And rehearse. And rehearse. So that's where I'll be until Wednesday (day after the concert.) Sorry, this did kind of pop up out of nowhere (it was impromptu, lol) and it's really bad to go AWOL when an RPG has a time bomb ticking, but I like this particular friend, think his girlfriend is pretty cool, and agree that she deserves something nice for her birthday, even if it's sloppily composed.

So, uh, brb till Wednesday.

Is it possible for a character to switch alliances during the RP? If so, what happens if the character stated has already completed a mission for the other faction? Does that still help the character for the final battle?

It is possible. But the process shouldn't be quick and easy like, "I think I'm going to be Alliance now. Screw the Gloss." That would be unacceptable. And there is no changing factions after the Secondary Missions tier - just so people don't join the faction that has been having the most success in hopes of "winning" the RP and surviving the Final Battle.

If you do switch before the Secondary Missions tier ends for either faction, the missions you have already participated in will just count as experience - experience that you have had in the face of death. The more detailed posts and descriptions will earn you a better chance - short, easy posts to complete missions just make the mission seem like a piece of cake and will not benefit your character much for the end game.

Right now, both factions are pretty even, and there should be no reason for changing factions this early until we get to the Secondary Missions tier.

Shade
03-12-2011, 02:45 PM
BTW, everyone-

I'm getting my wisdom teeth pulled in about 2 hours. Therefore, from what I've heard, I may be out for a little bit. Hopefully I can come to my senses. I'll have lots of time to RP the next couple days, but I will not be on PE2K for a while today (Maybe not once today). I will answer any questions you may have when I return and continue role playing.

You guys are all free to keep going, of course. And if you happen to complete any missions today, just shoot me a PM letting me know, with a detailed description of how it was done.

Thanks,
Shade

The secondary missions tier will take up a lot of time or both factions. I was just saying that just in case you were considering switching now that we are still in Basic.

You just signed up as well. And you should stick with the faction that you picked in the beginning.

Yes, that is allowed. And yes, if you wish to do that, you must make a profile for him. Obviously, he will have no history because he is a newly constructed clone. But personality and appearance and weaponry - all the other sections must be filled out in their unique way.

Just sign him up once he is introduced in your story and you will be allowed to play as 2 characters.

Just make her an NPC. 2 characters is enough. People sometimes bite of more than they can chew in Role Plays and make the mistake of making too many characters, but becoming inactive due to the work load they must put forth in order to keep all their characters intact with the story.
