Welcome to the Brotherhood of Steel
Season 4 War Team
Currently, the team is at max capacity.

World peace may never be possible. Humans have always had their differences, and in the past, they have formed alliances against each other. However, there is no wrong in trying to achieve the closest thing possible to total world peace. The Brotherhood of Steel is meant to stand as a mountain of clarity in a sea of despair and conflict, a shining light anyone can look to as a formation of unity. It is not The Brotherhood of Steel’s intention to upraise conflict, but instead unite the world under one banner, and make allies even out of the worst of past enemies through honest and firm reform, rather than totally destroying them like many others would do to remove their enemies. However, The Brotherhood is prepared to deal with every threat, since we know that not every organization in power has the same ideals as we do. There are others who are against us, and we must be prepared to deal with them accordingly.

The Brotherhood of Steel is an independent military group, and because of this, we don’t fight for one leader’s ideals, we fight for our own. We fight for the ideals of everyone in The Brotherhood, an ideal of unity among people, regardless of who they are or what they’ve done in the past. And with this unity, people can be expected to be safe and aware under a system of meaningful and reasonable laws, rather than mindlessly carrying out the goals of tyrants and blinded bureaucrats. If there is a hope for peace, then we will gladly take that hope upon our shoulders and take it as far as we can. However, we are aware of the bounds of our influence. For the neutral parties that do not wish to be a benefactor or a threat to our cause, we must leave them to follow their own path. Perhaps there will be another time when they will see the benefits of supporting our cause.

The Brotherhood of Steel realizes that the members of opposing hostile organizations blindly look up toward their leaders, and act upon their leader’s goals rather than their own personal goals, regardless of how destructive they actually are. These same organizations will keep fighting until they reach a state of desperation, and can no longer hold their own. Once their leaders are gone, they become like civilians, no longer under aggression to keep fighting for a cause that they know can no longer be reached. Rather than fully terminating the last of their enemies, the Brotherhood of Steel recruits these lost and surrendering warriors, and through discipline and training, they learn to fight for a much larger and more important cause under our wing. Needless to say, we believe that what was once evil and tarnished does not have to stay evil forever. Rather than looking back upon the atrocities of the past, we look toward the brightness of tomorrow’s future. There will be an answer, and we are that answer.

The Brotherhood of Steel calls upon the aid of mostly Steel, Fire, and Electric type Pokémon, but there are always slight exceptions considering our vast and diverse network. To gain as much control of the area as possible, we have outposts located all around the world in various and well protected places. Also, our soldiers fight alongside their companions using our best technology and our strongest weapons. While we must fight to achieve our goal, we enter the battlefield prepared with every available resource needed to make our victory more than just possible.

Joining The Brotherhood Of Steel

To join the Brotherhood of Steel, you need to post in this thread, and provide the war sections that will be your main focus during the war. Once you have been accepted, you will then receive your own Brotherhood of Steel banner with your own name on it, to certify you have joined the cause. Also on the banner will be your current rank.

In truth, the Brotherhood of Steel needs every member to be a team player and to contribute as much as they can to help their fellow team members in order to achieve maximum success for the team.

The Sign up form will look like this:

Ranks

Based on the performance and demonstration of your skills within the Brotherhood, it will be possible for you to advance in rank during the war. Here is a list of the ranks within the Brotherhood of Steel, and the requirements to achieve each rank. These ranks will be used as a basis to influence events within the War RP. Members of a higher rank will have command over those who are of a lower rank, but for mission purposes only.

Initiate – Default rank upon arriving within the Brotherhood of Steel

Squire – Requirement of 2 individual War Points

Knight – Requirement of 4 individual War Points

Paladin – Requirement of 6 Individual War Points

Crusader – Requirement of 8 Individual War Points

Cavalier – Requirement of 10 Individual War Points

General – Requirement of 15 Individual War Points

Commander – There are two sub ranks of Commander, “Head Commander” and “Subordinate Commander.” These two ranks can only be achieved upon retirement of the previous leaders of the Brotherhood of Steel after the founding of the team. Still, let it be known that each member’s individual rank status will play a vital role in determining who shall be granted the position upon the retirement of its previous leaders.

Final Outlook

The Brotherhood of Steel has one vision, and that is to see people working together to build a better and more powerful society, even those who were once against any order whatsoever. The bounds of neutrality are understood and are respected in the meantime as well. The Brotherhood is willing to offer protection to nearby cities and establishments in exchange for resources that will help them win the battles ahead, however, it respects the decisions of those who do not wish to take part within the Brotherhood’s network.

However, there is the threat of evil in every direction, and it has become the Brotherhood’s core objective to eliminate the evil, and accepting their honest surrender as a plea for reform and admittance to a new way of life. Proving this at first may be difficult, but in time, the Brotherhood of Steel believes it won’t be long before people set aside their differences, and see the bounty of cooperation and the dawn of a new society, one that will have its roots based on the growing realm of technology, diversity, and the foundations of freedom, liberty, and unity.

If you feel you’re ready to make a positive difference and take the step that will one day be the path of salvation for humanity, then take that step now, and join the Brotherhood of Steel.

OK, I've gone through the resumes and the three team threads that are up yet, and I think I'll feel best at The Brotherhood of Steel.

Name: Mike
War Section Concentration(s): Debate, URPG, Netbattle, Moveset/Pokemon Trivia

I think I'd prefer Moveset or Stragetic Trivia, but that may be combined with Pokemon Trivia in general, so I'll settle for that.

Okay, just so you two guys are aware of ahead of time, every War team is limited in how many members they can accept, the limit being 10 at this moment. Just so this is clear, this was installed to make sure every team is at even ground before moving on and bumping up the member limit. In this case, every team seriously wants to win, and doesn’t want inactive members who say they have what it takes when they actually don’t. Simply enough, they can’t afford them when there’s going to be other teams armed to the teeth with other powerful members.

Since I’m limited when it comes to member positions and I’m not quite sure of your abilities from my knowledge offhand, I have a request. Yeah, I know the posting of links to past work related to the sections is labeled as optional, but it kept it that way since there are many members that I am already aware of what they can do as far as talents and abilities. As for the two of you, I’m not totally sure yet, so I’m going to need some links to work related to the sections you have selected. LugiaTamer, if you could show me a fan fiction and some debate entries, I’ll give them a look over and see how good they are. As for you, Loyal Arcanine, again, some debate posts and showing me your URPG stats would be a big help.

If the two of you could show me your best work and I’m confident it will help us win the war, then you’ll be accepted. I hope you understand my reason for doing this. Every team wants to win, and they need members who are going to be team players and are going to work hard to do as well as they can for the benefit of everyone on the team. I’m willing to give it everything I can, and I hope the two of you feel the same way.

I am petitioning to join NP.

Name: Syas
War Concentration: URPG, Fanfic, Debate, Netbattle, Trivia, Moveset. I am willing to be devoted to Graphics, but I am only so-so at it.
Reason for joining: This is the team I wanted to join since reading the descriptions in the nomination thread. I am interested in being on a well-planned and well-organized neutral team.

I have Catch Stories posted in the URPG here (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=6688), here (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=6744), and here (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=7223), that should give you a feel for my Fanfic ability. Since everything else would be competitive, I would be happy to prove myself against you. :cool:

My Trainer Stats (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showpost.php?p=149932&postcount=181)

These are my URPG stats. I guess the record is not overwhelming, but it is hard in the beginning, when you have only one pokemon; it's also tough to train a new one.
I am currently writing for a Swablu here (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=6800), and by the time the WAR starts, I will surely have some more pokemon.

Unfortunately, my experiences from debating are all from school, so I can't show you anything there.

I am willing to battle you on NetBattle, if you wish to see my skills there.

Lan:

I like the way you RPing skills are, I’ve seen them in action myself. Just member, the longer your posts are in the War RP and the more descriptive they are, the better you’ll do. As for fan fiction, don’t be afraid to post some of it at Pokémon Community for some reviews. Take what they say and build upon it. As for Graphics, I definitely think the Ariados sig is sweet. Keep that up and you’ll go far in graphics, just know that the competition will be hot in that section.

Welcome to the Brotherhood of Steel, Lan.

Syas:

Like with any URPG event, the more Pokémon you have and the more TMs you arm them with, the better you’ll do. As for graphics, if you’re unsure about it, don’t spend too much time with it, the main important thing to do here is to build on your strengths rather than trying to fix weaknesses. Keep building your fan fictions and you’ll do well in the War.

Welcome to the Brotherhood of Steel, Syas.

http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y109/Ultradyne/SYASBOS.jpg

Loyal Arcanine:

Okay, thanks for showing me your stats. Continue building them for the URPG, but just know that some of the URPG vets have very lethal teams. A better place to put some more of your concentration for the war would be debating and Netbattle. Perhaps give some of the debate threads in the Other Discussion board to see how debating works best around here, and get an idea. We have some tough debaters here, so be prepared to learn how they debate and try to go even further than how they usually do it.

Welcome to the Brotherhood of Steel, Loyal Arcanine.

Finglonger:

Heh, I already knew you were awesome at Netbattle, hence the reason why I sent that PM to you in the first place. Great to have you on the team.

As for poetry and the like, maybe give Creative Writing a shot. Plenty of people submit entries, but if you put some hefty effort into them and make them sound vivid, you’ll do well. There is a chance my brother (goes by the name of Fayt) will also be joining BOS, and his focus will be on CW as well.

Welcome to the Brotherhood of Steel, Finglonger.

http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y109/Ultradyne/FingBOS.jpg

Zenaku:

I honestly had a strong feeling you would be joining Matthew’s team due to the evil alignment standing, but nonetheless, this is quite a pleasant surprise. I already know you’re RP skills are incredibly kickass, as well as your artistic abilities. As for Debate, I’m sure you’ll do fine in there as well.

Give fan fiction a shot, it’s a pretty competitive area but I definitely think you have what it takes. Creative Writing and Humor are good places to focus on as well, since its easier to submit a more compact entry.

Welcome to the Brotherhood of Steel Zenaku.

http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y109/Ultradyne/ZENBOS.jpg

Rukario:

Trivia is good but we need to spread the team’s focus on sections as much as possible and still have diversified strength in each section. If you notice, many of the members are focusing on more than one section, which is something we need from every member. If you’re up for it, maybe provide links to some other sections that you feel you have strengths in. Creative Writing and humor is a good place to start. If you can show me what you’ve got when it comes to some other skills you have besides trivia and it looks great, I’ll consider you a candidate.

Just show me your skills and we’ll see how you do.


Concerning Banners

You’re definitely welcome to use the banner I’ve provided, and you’re definitely more than welcome to make your own Brotherhood of Steel banners if you so wish, just as long as they have your name, your rank in the Brotherhood, and the words “Brotherhood of Steel” or some close variation of that.

Yes, you'll probably notice I changed the background on the team banners, since the previous background was way too dark. Other than that, they've pretty much stayed the same.

Concerning the Subordinate Commander Position

Yes, I will be selecting a Subordinate Commander soon, as soon as 10 members arrive. Considering how many members we’ve gotten already, I can definitely say it won’t be very long at all.

The basis for this selection will be with regard to their leadership abilities as well as their individual skills and talents. Trust me, I will put a lot of thought and consideration into this decision before I make the final call.

That’s all. Special thanks for everyone who decided to join. I’m very confident each of us have what it takes to win the war and go much further than the rest of the teams.

I also noticed I’m down to one last member spot, and I am saving it for Dap. Just so you know, he’s still deciding on the team he wants to join, but he is giving our team serious consideration. Until I get final word from him regarding his decision, The Brotherhood of Steel is pretty much at max capacity until the member limit bar is raised, which will likely not occur for a while. Still, it continues to amaze me that our team filled up to the max on opening day. That has to be a good sign.

In all, I’d definitely like to personally thank everyone who decided to join the Brotherhood of Steel, and I’m also very excited about the upcoming war. I know all of you have plenty of awesome skills and talents, and I know if we work together, we will definitely win big this war season. Again, thank you for joining, and I hope you're ready to give it everything you've got for Season 4.

congratulations, NP. I see your team is strong. Unfortunately, I look at my own team, and although it looked prospective at first, some new members look... doubtful. Atleast you're full so some of the other teams can get some action :goofy: :goofy:

Ah, trust me. I'm sure Dani will get at least two more members and Matthew will finally accept his new members before the night is over with. Thing is, he needs to be selective, but he still has plenty of members waiting right at his door.

There shouldn't really be much to worry about; every Team should be full come WAR Season 4. I'm sure there are at least 60 active members who are Team material on the forums.

Anyway, great to be a part of the Team, and I'll definately give FanFiction a go. I just reorganised some ideas I've been coming up with for the past week, so hopefully I can get a good plot and actually introduce the characters well in the actual fic (Character introductions is my worst writing strength). Eh... I just hope I can sort out my fanfic and prepare myself for the role-play. The other sections are pretty much spur of the moment things (i.e. Get a theme and enter based on it).

Meh, it pains me to say this, but we already filled up only a few hours ago. I know you're a pretty damn good graphic artist too, and I definitely would have accepted you, but I can't.

The only option I can give you is to perhap hold your place just in case Dap wants to switch to Marth's team, but that means you'd have to wait. If he does go with Marth, I'll definitely give you first rights to the last open position. If that's okay with you, I'll gladly keep your place if you're still interested.

Man, I really didn't think I would run into this problem...

Yes, I offered JIG a postion LONG before the BOS thread was even created. During the afternoon, I got so many requests to join the team that I completely forgot about it, and I kick myself for it but there's really not much I can do but promise JIG the position I had originally promised her before I even gave anyone else a postion. Needless to say, its really her who should rightfully have it.

I know Pidgeot79 is a really cool guy, and is an awesome graphic artist, but I feel sick to my stomach giving him the run around like this. I wish I could invite everyone, but I can't, but just know that I would have loved to have you on the team, Pidgeot. I hope there's no hard feelings about this.

Hoenn Mirror Girl:

I'm definitely quite sure of your abilites in fan fiction writing, and needless you say the massive amounts of MOTM awards you've gotten from them. Plus, I know you've won war points from them before. I'd encourage you to join the War RP as well, but that's up to you. I know you would be good at it though.

Welcome to the Brotherhood of Steel, HMG.

Well, it might seem a little unfair, but the member limits were put up for this exact same reason: to prevent one Team from becoming overpowered. At any rate, I hope those unable to join go ahead to join a Team which matches their ideals and/or has friends of theirs, otherwise they won't really find WAR Season 4 fun.

As for RP, there's really no details, Fayt. Neo and Harry haven't revealed details as far as I know due to the fact that they might completely change them before the WAR (Unless they've mentioned it in the planning thread when I wasn't paying attention...).

I'm pretty sure you can write about whatever you want for FanFiction, as long as it involves Pokemon.

As for the WAR, well... There are seperate sections (FanArt, RP, etc) and each section has a judge. Each week, [most of] the judges give out themes (With exceptence to RP, FanFiction and other non-themed sections), and at the end of the week, they give out points to the best members (Best graphic artist, best fanfic update, best RP posts, fastest Teams so complete scavenger hunt, etc).

Basically, you just compete in whatever areas you want to try and gain points for the Team. Obviously, the Team with the most points at the end of the war wins.

Well, I've been thinking about making alternative BOS banners, ones that actually... have Pokemon in them. Plus, these new ones could be a bit bigger as well, since these new ones seem a bit... crowded to say the least, and they look pretty tiny.

I'll definitely keep the current ones up if you still want them though, but I honestly feel they could use a bit more zest into them.

I'd say Meowth and Skitty (*love 'em to bits*), but they're not the Steel, Fire, or Electric Pokemon that'll suit the Brotherhood of Steel.

Then, there's Lagadi/Jacrystal, but they're not official.

I'll design the new banner with a bigger size and a fresh new steel and tech type design, but as for Pokemon, they're your choice, just so as long as they're either Steel, Fire, or Electric. Once I'm done with it, I'll release the PSD of it, so you can cutomize it in your own way with Photoshop. I gave Thanatos the PSD of the older banner and he changed the colors, and I really don't mind if you do that either. Heh, you can change the text and the backgrounds too if you'd like, do whatever you want with it.

Man, I definitely like that idea.

Like OMG, yes, I finished the new tech banner for The Brotherhood of Steel, and I think it looks great. But, I also designed it so it’s easy for you guys to adjust accordingly to your own preferences once you bring it into Photoshop.

This is the actual PSD file itself:

http://pirate.shu.edu/~rodmanjo/BOSMAIN.psd

Adjusting the banner for your own desires

Fonts

First, the fonts. You’re going to need them if you want to adjust the text, but you can find each at every one of them at www.dafont.com. Once you download the fonts, unzip the files, take the font files and put them into your font folder which is in Control Panel.


The font that was used for “The Brotherhood of Steel” is called Alexis, specifically, Alexis Laser. You can find the whole pack of Alexis fonts right at this page:

http://www.dafont.com/en/theme.php?cat=303

It’s the last one on the bottom.


The font that was used for my name “Neo Pikachu” is called Venus Uprising (I love this font by the way). You can find it here:

http://www.dafont.com/en/theme.php?cat=303&page=16

It’s the second to last one, right above “Viper Squadron”


And finally, the font that was used for the rank under my name and for the “Peace through liberty, purity, and unity” is a bitmap font called 04b_09. Again, you can find it here:

http://www.dafont.com/en/bitmap.php

It’s the second from the top. Shouldn’t be too hard to find.


Once you’ve downloaded your fonts, changing the text on the PDS file is easy. You don’t need to delete anything either, since Photoshop will add all the Outer Glow stuff anyway as you type your name and rank out. Please, just be honest with the rank, otherwise it takes the fun out of promotions. You’re welcome to change the quote if you feel you'd like to see something else there instead.


Adding your own Pokémon

I tend to put Pikachu on just about everything, but you of course don’t have to. If you open up the PSD file, you see that Pikachu and Skarmory are on their own layer. All you have to do is delete them and insert the Pokémon that you want to use, just make sure they’re Steel, Fire, or Electric to fit the theme.

The color that covers them at the moment is from adding Layer>New Adjustment Layer>Color Balance. I used this to match the colors of the Pokémon I used and wiped off the half that covered the other Pokémon that didn’t match their color. After adding two of these, one for each Pokémon, that’s the effect I got.

All you have to do is delete them and add your own if you want to. You're welcome to try other stuff too if you'd like.

Tech Border

Yeah, the border is pretty simplistic since the more border you have, the less of everything else you have. You’re welcome to change or erase mine and add your own. If you want help in making your own tech borders, a really good tutorial on how to do them can be found here:

http://defectinthesystem.com/studio/content/tutorials/border1.php

Background

There’s a ton of layers called BGLAYER right below everything else. This makes for the somewhat marbleized background. Again, you’re welcome to change this if you’d like, but you might need some Photoshop brushes for that.

Hopefully that helps. Have fun with it, and I'd love to see what you can come up with.

Special thanks goes to Syas for the idea.

I'll try to do if after I finish Shane's. Meanwhile, if you could find the picture of Aranine that you want, that would be a big help.

Also, for anyone else who wants the newer banner, just tell me what Pokemon you want on it, if any at all. Not sure if you wanted any Pokemon on it Fing, but now would be a good time to mention it.

Oh yeah. I suppose that explains the awesome pictures.

I did a TBOS Banner. I'm using it for now, but I might swap later. It's definately not as good as Neo's far as I'm concerned. His tech borders always pwn.

http://img31.echo.cx/img31/6827/tbosbanner18hh.png

When I make the other Neo version on, I'm using this Aggron pic and maybe Metagross. Woo!

I tried to add some animation, but the Brush tool can be very inaccurate.

Neo Emolga
04-13-2005, 04:37 PM
I think he actually frame captures them all from the movies. Just a guess though. I never really watched him at work.

That's pretty much how I did it. The Zapdos in Shane's banner is straight from Pokemon 2000, while the Pikachu in my sig is from the Pikachu and Pichu short in the 3rd Pokemon movie. Screen captures from the movies themselves give you an enormous amount of quality and variance compared to pictures you find off of Google.

With that said, you if know there's an image of a Pokemon that you want from Pokemon 2000, Pokemon the Thrid Movie, Pokemon Heroes or Jirachi Wishmaker, just let me know. It's pretty easy for me to get it, but still, I'd rather email it to you, since uploading it is going to be a pain.

And Thanatos, that banner rocks! Nice job on the background and the border!

NP, if you know of a good shot of a skarmory in any of the movies I could use a better pic. Mine kinda lacks and I had to play with it alot. I finally ended up beveling it to give it some look. I really don't recall any Skarmorys in the movies though. What I might end up doing also is solidfying the BOS lettering because I think its a little ackward where the letters and Skarmory's head meet.

I want to do a hand-made drawing of it, so I'd want to use it somewhere. I'm getting better at drawing Pokemon at least... A Sneasel I drew must be one of my best Pokemon pics yet (Although I need to improve the damn air-slash effect).

Man, I love the way these banners are coming out.

Yes, I used a different Growlithe picture for yours, LA. The one you had was good, but a bit too small, and if I made it bigger, it would have become blurred and pixeliated, which doesn't look that great. I hope the one that's there is okay.

And yes, I decided to make Zenaku the Subordinate Commander. I know him very well, and I know he's very capable of doing a great job at leading the team and helping everyone do their best. With both of us working together, I'm sure we're going to do extremely well this war season.

I hate to do this but I'm leaving BOS to help Vex with his team. I already talked to NP about it. YAY for VEX!!

Yeah, I did talk to Shane about this, and both of us have realized that Vex really, really badly needs more members, perferably more senior members that he knows will definitely be active during the entire course of the war. Needless to say, Shane is definitely one of those members Vex can count on to do a good job and to help him as much as possible. With this, I also hope some more senior members who haven't joined any teams yet will also consider Vex's team, making the War more fun and competitive for every person involved in it.

Still, thanks for joining the team and being a part of it, Shane, even if it was only for a short while. Also, thanks for seeing how important it is to keep the teams even so the war is fun for every team, and not just the ones that currently have a full pack of members.

Zenaku
04-14-2005, 08:08 PM
Thanks for the promotion, Neo, and be assured that I won't let the Team down, as neither will any other member I'm sure.

Shane, sad to see a member leaving before the WAR, but of course, the WAR wouldn't be fun unless the Teams are relatively equal in skill - of course, member quantity really makes no difference; it's all down to the members sheer determination to help their Team, and how well the Team can form new friendships, and utilize friendships of old, to help one another better themselves during the WAR.

04-14-2005, 11:40 PM
Neo, I know we now have a free space in the Team, but (No offence to Deoxys Trainer) I think it might be best if the sign-ups were left closed for now, really. Shane left to join another Team and hopefully even it out; if we accept another member, we'll just be reversing Shanes sacrifice, and would likely end up having more members than all other Teams.

To be honest, I'm not sure if any of the other Teams will get anywhere up to 9 members from this point; almost every trusted and senior member of PE2K is on a Team, with exception to those few who haven't yet been able to get online to choose.

It would be fair to keep our numbers at 9 until the other Teams raise their own member count.

Finglonger

I agree with zenaku, although I would like to see if I could get khold to join this team. If his computer wasnt broken I could ask him, too bad...

Neo Emolga
04-15-2005, 03:32 AM
Yeah, you're right about that Zenaku.

Sorry Deoxys Trainer, but its probably best if you join another team that doesn't have as many members as we do. I know I took down the message that said sign ups were closed, but I probably should have left it on, and let other members join the other teams so that every team is even.

Marth may have ten members, but I'm willing to keep our team at 9 just so other teams have a fighting chance. I hope you understand.

I haven't added my new banner to my sig yet, and have put away my old one. It's just that for the last two days I can hardly see any pic on the internet ... To me the whole of PE2K has changed into white spaces with red X'es ... I hope it will be over soon.

04-16-2005, 07:54 AM
As long as they are "sitting on the window" meows I'm happy. It's the "run for your legs and trip you down the stairs" meows I am a little more unpleased to put it lightly.
As for your red x's and such, you might want to check tools/options/advanced. Then go down to multimedia and make sure "show pictures" is checked. This won't be your problem if only PE2K shows the red x's though. You can also try messing with the security settings. They might be too high for PE2K. I usually keep mine set at medium without problems. A third thing you might want to try is scrap internet explorer and switch to mozilla firefox at mozilla.org. This also helps prevent spyware and that nasty stuff. If all this stuff doesn't work or you don't want to switch browsers, another step you can take is download adaware or s&d spybot. Also, do a full virus scan. Some viruses and spyware might prevent multimedia from displaying.
If it is only PE2K that does this then the only problem I might see is a security setting set too high. Hope that helps.

Loyal Arcanine
04-17-2005, 08:39 PM
First of all Fayt, thanks a lot for your tips. They were unfortunately not able to solve my problem. However, what you say about a too high security setting might still be true. I first lowered that, and still couldn't see anything. When I wanted to change back to higher security settings, I found out they had gone back to the previous high settings automatically. So I tested a bit, and whatever I do, no matter how low I put the security settings, no matter how often I click on "Apply" and "OK", it immediately jumps back to the high settings. Maybe good for viruses, lol, but I don't like it if it prevents me from seeing any pictures. So, is anybody here familiar with this problem?

Fayt
04-19-2005, 04:37 AM
You could also try clicking on trusted sites and adding PE2K to the list. I'm running out of ideas

Neo Emolga
04-19-2005, 04:48 AM
Well, it might be from any firewalls or virus protection security settings that's blocking it. Usually you can fix that in Options when it comes to using Firefox, but sometimes it might be security.

Just don't strip apart your security too much...

If they do this next WAR, then BOS won't exist after Season 4. : /

As for the WAR RP, I'm certainly joining in. I already have a rough idea of my own role in the plot, as after all, everyone has a role, big or small. Mine shouldn't, hopefully, affect the plot drastically (At least, not all the little things I plan to do, but they'll mount up to one big thing), but it should be enough to do what I plan on doing.

Don't want to reveal it all right away, but believe me, my character will be very surprising in the ultimate end. :wink:

Here's a preview of the plot of my WAR fic...
A sad time has fallen over the world of Myumajo. The king's beloved wife has died, and he decided to ask a sorceress who was a close friend for help. Believing that this was an opportunity to finally reach her goal after years of failure, the sorceress told the king that she'll make a miracle potion.

After hearing the news, the sorceress's daughter, Nyaomi helped her mother gather the needed ingredients. However, most of them were hard to find. Some were to believe that didn't even exist anymore. Nevertheless, the sorceress and her daughter continued their search.

Just when all but the last few ingredients were found, unfortunately, something happened that made everything turn for the worse. Zindo, a young mischievious wizard apprentice, has made a dare with Nyaomi to enter into another world by the Crystal Portal at Sapphire Echo Canyon. Nyaomi accepted the challenge, but it resulted in her being stuck in a strange world known as the Johto region. What was even worse was that she couldn't go back to Myumajo after being in another world for a certain period of time. She eventually managed to adjust to the strange new world until the day before her trainer journey. Despite learning a lot about Pokemon (and being very familiar with one), Nyaomi didn't want to go because of her identity. Unfortunately, she ended up going against her wishes.

Early in her trainer journey, however, three of king's servants found Nyaomi and told her that they have opened the Crystal Portal. Nyaomi mentioned her goal to collect the Johto Gym Badges, and the servants told her that it'll be open for another year. Upon hearing the mention of the miracle potion from the servants, however, Nyaomi got an idea: finding some of the final ingredients of the miracle potion in the world she was currently in. Now she must complete her goals before time runs out.

There WILL be some things that will be changed (like the queen having a really serious disease instead of already dead and some other questionable things), and hopefully this'll be a fanfic that I SHOULD be proud of. We wouldn't want to go back to our low standards, now do we?

Zenaku
04-23-2005, 02:14 PM
lol JIG, I'm sure it'll be great. Haven't started to write mine yet, but I do have about 4-5 Notepad files full of info on characters, the plot, and other various things that will greatly influence the story as it continues.

At most, I plan to write only the first chapter before the WAR starts, so if I get any feedback I won't have to edit any and all chapters beyond the reviewed chapter (Assuming it's not something small like a few spelling/grammar mistakes; something like a slight lack of character development).

Meh... I'm planning it too much XD

sorry to disturb your thread



but fing, for the RP, some people should plan, and some shouldn't. If you already have a reputation as a good RPer, you will be able to indirectly godmode/bunny, but get away with it. This is because it will appear as if you are developing the story line.

However, if you don't have a reputation yet, you won't be able to influence the plot much (without being yelled at).

Zenaku
04-23-2005, 07:45 PM
wow, is that much planning really neccesary? I was just going to use one of my old D&D charactersThe more you plan, the deeper the storyline. The deeper the storyline, the more you draw the readers in. The more you draw the readers in (And, obviously, make them care about the characters) the more they want to come back for the next chapter.

Most of the info in the files I have though is all repeated info with minor differences, more detailed stuff, etc. The last file I started pretty much labels major events in a characters life, and how old they were when it happened. Just need to go into more detail, like blood type (Who knows? Maybe a character will have to give another character a blood transfusion... Pointless unless they have bloodtypes, or, at the very least, unrealistic without them), dates of birth (Obvious), etc.

Well, unfortunately I've quit NBing awhile ago, so I'm afraid my main help would be in the URPG... Of course, I'd try the writing stuff sections, and MAYBE I might restart NB, but that's pretty doubtful =/

Pokemon wise, uh... I'll take Charmeleon :) Slashy slashy!

Done.

Yeah, I got it. Still, would you mind so much as to choose a different Pokemon other than Typlosion? At least two other BOS members already have him in their sig. But, if you still want him badly enough, I'll put him in your sig.

Other than that, you're good to go. Welcome to the team!

Wow, more members, very fun. Welcome to the team guys!

Thanks! And about the banner NP, I guess I could go without Typhlosion in it. I didn't see any banners with him in them, so I assumed he was not yet used. So instead, I'll take, ummmm...are legendary pokemon allowed in banners? If so, then could I have both Ho-oh and Moltres in it? If not...could I have a banner that shows a Jolteon and a Flareon battling, if possible? Only if it's not too much trouble for you.

Everything from sponsorships (tactics used by companies for exclusive rights to sell their goods at the game while promoting the product and the product image), stadia (idea of bringing the consumer to the game as well as ticket prices and the relations of heavy, medium, and light consumers), management info systems (determining consumer buying behavior in terms of why they buy, where they buy, and how much of the product they buy), advertising (promotion of the game and the planning and creation of ads), and the sports product (time based product that is intangible and the importance of reliable customer service). It sounds like a lot but I remember most of it. Just a few things I need to brush up on.

Also, the war starts June 5th, but I'm sure we're all ready to come out with a bang. And trust me Mana, you're definitely a welcome addition to the team.

05-04-2005, 07:50 PM
It didn't take me that long, since I pretty much have the template for the BOS banners saved as a PSD, which has the border and the background already. Also, to get those pictures, I use InterVideo WinDVD 5, which has the ability to freeze frame a shot from the Pokemon movies and save it as a JPEG. The picture of Moltres comes from Pokemon the movie 2000, right at the point where Moltres and Zapdos trash the hell out of that massive flying machine. And the Ho-oh shot comes from Jirachi Wish Maker, right during the opening introduction.

That's how I get most of my Pikachu pictures as well. The one in the avatar and my first sig is from Pikachu's Rescue Adventure, and my own BOS picture comes from the Third Pokemon movie, right when Pikachu and Entei are fighting each other.

I can't tell you how much this totally kicks the stuffing out of crappy Google Image searches. If the desired Pokemon appears in a movie, I'd definitely resort to getting it from a WinDVD 5 screen capture as opposed to getting it from Google Image Search. Of course... not every Pokemon appears in every Pokemon movie...

Just remember, War Fan fictions don't have to be about the War RP itself, but usually you will find one or two that are.

Also, the Role Play does get quite complex very quickly, so if you're going to go for it, make sure you stick in it so you don't fall too far behind.

Other than that, all I need is just for you to tell me what Pokemon you want in your BOS banner, and you're in.

As much as I hate to do this... I would refrain from allowing Shockwave to join the Team, Neo, since most evidence points to him being SK (Having an image ripper on the Team isn't really the best idea). Personally, it doesn't bother me if he returns or not as long as he doesn't continue to lie about his identity, and/or doesn't make a repeat of the past, though that doesnt mean I think letting him on the Team is such a good idea.

The limit may have been raised, and we might be encouraged to allow newbies to the war onto the Teams, however we still need to be selective, for the members will be a great deciding factor in the War.

Well, he's already PMed me about that, and the whole IP relation is because of school. But, if you think we should wait a while for him to post more and prove there's no realtion, we can do that. Besides, the war still has another month before it starts.

And absol2005, is there anything else you can do besides Trivia?

Zenaku
05-04-2005, 10:51 PM
He PMed me also, Neo. The thing is, he's currently using the same IP which a vast majority of SKs posts were made by (The few exceptions likely to be using another computer somewhere else). If they both merely signed up with their accounts at school, it'd be no reason for SW to be using the same IP as SK all the time, and I'm pretty sure school's ended for the day over there in America.

Then again, maybe I'm wrong, but considering how SK was only banned today, and how SW knows at least a little about the Teams, VPP, who the moderators are and how they can ban him, etc, it's no doubt in my mind that he's a previous member; SK or not. Of course, evidence points to SK, obviously.

Hilarious, I remember that excuse. mpatel027/lugiatrainer2k5 were the same person, though he pretended to be two different people.

I want more proof then that, but it is not my decision. This is the decision of both Neo and/or Zenaku.

Zenaku
05-05-2005, 01:50 PM
To be honest, getting a friend to play "SK" would be more than easy, and you still have the same IP which SK has used with every single account. There's really little you can even do to prove that you and the Salamence King who we know are different people (Although considering you know so much about the forums already, it's unlikely that you'd be a completely new member).

Neo, there's always a chance that the evidence is wrong, but I don't believe we can take the chance. I dislike having to be mean to a possible new member, but that's just the reality of it.

Neo Emolga
05-05-2005, 02:11 PM
Okay, I'm not liking where this is going either. Maybe I was wrong about jumping the gun with this...

For one thing, is school really the only place where you can access the Internet? If that's really the case, how can we expect you to be active in the war, which occurs in summer when school is out? I'm definitely going to need a logical response to that question...

Second, you only have 4 tiny posts. Even if you are someone new, we still have no idea what skills you have that would help us in the war. If you can prove that you're a totally different person than SK and prove that you do have skills in fan fiction and role playing, then I'll give it consideration. We're all willing to give this everything we've got, but we need to make sure that you're willing to do that too. And sorry, but a "of course I will" isn't going to prove it to us. I need to see you prove that in action.

Look, I'm not saying you ARE SK, but even if you aren't, I'm going to need a little bit more than confidence before you're let in. I already had to ban someone for creating an alternate account and outright lying that he had never seen the forum before as was posting for the first time.

So please, if you know you have the skills to prove you're good at those kinds of things, let's see them in action. Maybe start a fan fic and join one or two RPs, and we'll see how you do.

Well, I'm going to recommend that you read over the War rules before you decide to join any team. That, and getting a least two hundred more posts in so we don't think you're just going to join the team today and leave the entire forum tomorrow. We already had one applicant apply and then leave without a trace.

I don't doubt your RP skills either, but we need for you to show you're going to be a bit more active, and by posting and participating in some of the RPs we have now would definitely be a good idea.

Also, just so you know for the next time you apply, only Steel, Fire, and Electric type Pokemon go on the banner since that's the theme for this team. Still, I hope you're willing to show us that you want to be active.

Hmm… that’s odd. I don’t see why he would just deny you even though you’ve been at PE2K ever since the Proboards days and know perfectly how the war works.

Keep it up with URPG, and don’t be afraid to try the War RP, even though 75% of the entire forum is going to be all over it. Every person who’s in it helps the BOS do better when it comes to the storyline and backup support. Netbattle sounds good too, just know that it’s going to be pretty competitive.

Just tell me what Fire, Electric or Steel Pokémon (preferably one that hasn’t really been taken yet) and you’re in.
