    The basic premise:

    It is a story long told in Cielore...long ago, Cielore was oppressed by an evil wizard, who had a dragon familiar to hold the people under his iron fist. Heartbroken by the misery and despair she saw across the land, the Diamond Princess Diancie searched across the land for a hero that could defeat the wizard and his dragon, and lead the land into a new age of peace and plenty. She found the hero in a small village, and granted him a magical sword that would protect him from the wizard's evil magic. After a very long journey, he confronted the wizard and his dragon not far from the royal capital of Illumis, and defeated both wizard and dragon with his magical blade, and Diancie's sacred diamonds, which he had gathered on his journey.

    Many years have passed since then, and Cielore is in a new age of peace. While the tale of the hero, the wizard, and the dragon is now just a bedtime story, or a minstrel's tale, there is one reminder of the hero's journey that we undertake today--the Gathering of the Diamonds. Once a year, many different caravans follow the hero's long journey, stopping to gather diamonds where they can--either hard won from ruins, or as thanks for a deed of valor. While many set out to gather the sacred diamonds that appear in the land each year, only a rare few make it all the way to Illumis. Those that do make it there are welcomed as heroes, and receive medallions of valor from Her Majesty Queen Diantha.

    No one knows for sure how millions of colorful diamonds suddenly appear in the land each year in the spring, but it is agreed that when they do appear, it is time for the caravans to embark on the Gathering of Diamonds. Many see it as a coming of age journey, so every person in the land is encouraged to make the journey at least once in their lives.

    It is not just those of us that live in Cielore that make the journey--many come from far and wide to learn about the Gathering of the Diamonds, see all that our home has to offer, and follow the hero's route in their own way--either through a caravan of their own, riding with a caravan, a single Ponyta or Rapidash, or on foot.

    This year marks my turn to follow the hero's long road to Illumis in a caravan--but I get to do this alongside some of my best friends.

    What follows is our journey along the hero's road for ourselves. Little did we know, we would encounter and defeat an evil wizard of our own along the way, and arrive in Illumis as heroes...

    Sign up here with the following info:

    Character's name (try to have it be French or at least French sounding in origin, since Cielore is a fantasy Kalos)
    Character's origin (if your character is not originally from Cielore, where are they from?)
    Character's age (anywhere from age 13-16 will do)
    Character's physical appearance (what does your character basically look like?)
    Character's backstory/known history (what is your character like, and what spurred them to join Serena's caravan?)
    Character's class (any standard fantasy RPG class will do)
    Character's current inventory (what your character is currently carrying--money wise, Serena's father Lucien has given you a thousand gold pieces for expenses and supplies. You can earn more on the long journey, or find more in the wild)
    Character's Pokémon, if any (you can have up to three non-Legendary Pokémon of any of the known Pokémon.)

    Firstly, I'll dump a Kalos map here for reference:
    [​IMG]

    Image source: my X nuzlocke savefile at the time of writing this (haven't reached Snowbelle yet).
    May feature a different map scale to account for host @WavePearl's plans.

    Secondly, I'm feeling guilty for never getting to properly RP-ing this guy. If you're cool with it, I might as well try again with them being the Calem (as XY's MC) to your Serena -- a new neighbor.

    Fiorello Volta
    Name: Fiorello "Fiore" Volta
    Pronouns: He/they
    Age: 13
    Origin: Sabia (Paldea), specifically what would be Los Platos today
    Class: Blue Mage
    Hex Code: #95DAF8
    Appearance:
    [​IMG]
    • The robe Fiore is wearing above was originally their aunt's -- she gave one to him, refitted for a young masculine build.
    • Fiore will alternate between that and FFTA2's blue mage outfit sans the headgear (whatever it's called) throughout the RP.
    Initial inventory: A blue saber, a black robe (initially worn), a blue robe (spare clothing, if you will), a map + his aunt's notes, and a Tera Orb (originally as a keepsake -- may or may not play a bigger role depending on what gimmick will be primarily at play here)
    Lissa (Eevee) [​IMG]

    Name: Lissa
    Pronouns: She/her
    Hex Code: #c5a068
    While Lissa can't permanently evolve, she can shift between her Eeveelution forms via Extreme Evoboost. Think of it like Red's Vee when he was an Eevee but with more options to choose from (Vee's options were limited to the gen 1 Eeveelutions and he lost this ability upon permanently evolving into Espeon). The shifting itself is manually triggered by any of the Partner Eevee's exclusive moves with the target Eeveelution matching the move and Veevee Volley reverting her back to an Eevee mid-battle -- she'll automatically revert to her Eevee form once the battle's over.

    Laslow (Quaxwell) [​IMG]

    Name: Laslow
    Pronouns: He/him
    Hex Code: #95DAF8
    Fiore first met Laslow as a Quaxly during the Treasure Hunt -- an independent study project as a part of Mesagoza Academy's curriculum (basically SV plotline minus the (Ko-/Mi-)raidon shenanigans). Laslow eventually evolved into a Quaxwell a little while before Fiore's graduation.
    Fiore grew up in a family who runs an Eevee daycare -- basically a nursery crossed with a shelter for Eevee and its evolutions -- in what would be Los Platos, Paldea Sabia today. One of the Eevee they took care of eventually bonded with Fiore and nicknamed Lissa. Fiore helped out in the family-run daycare until they discovered their ability to use Pokémon moves at 8 (barely hitting 9). Only then did their family enrolled them in a blue mage academy for 2 years, then continued their study in Mesagoza Academy for another 2 years.

    After graduating from Mesagoza Academy, Fiore wanted to explore the world beyond his home region. His parents suggested to start from Cielore where one of his aunts, Corinne "Coco" Coltheart, lived. Since Aunt Coco lived at Croquis, Fiore soon moved there together with his two partners, Lissa and Laslow, though they only got to stay there for about a month or so before embarking on the Gathering of Diamonds with one of their new neighbors.
    From Lissa Moveset from Lissa:
    • Bouncy Bubble (water)
    • Buzzy Buzz (electric)
    • Sizzly Slide (fire)
    • Glitzy Glow (psychic)
    • Baddy Bad (dark)
    • Sappy Seed (grass)
    • Freezy Frost (ice)
    • Sparkly Swirl (fairy)

    From Laslow Moveset from Laslow:
    • Low Sweep (fighting)
    • Aqua Cutter (water)
    • Air Slash (flying)

    Others Moveset from other sources:
    • Extreme Evoboost
      • Unlike the Z-move it's based on, this spell allows Lissa to freely change from an Eevee to any of her Eeveelution forms and back -- effectively works like Mega Eevee in Pokémon Insurgence. This spell is only usable once per battle.
    Money: 400 G
    • Blue saber
    • Black robe
    • Charm bracelet (2/6)
    None at the moment
    • Blue robe
    • 1x heart charm
    • Cielore map
    • Aunt Coco's notebook
    • Tera Orb

    Edit: Methinks it'd be nice to have a list of gathered diamonds here~
    • Brilliant White
    • Silver Sage

    Calem does appear in this story for a brief seeing off scene, then basically sends letters throughout the journey as support.

    There are no gimmicks here, so the Tera Orb is just a memento.

    Other than that, everything is good to go! You are Accepted!

    In that case, Calem will also be Fiore's new neighbor~ :D

    And for the record, this is Fiore's aunt who lives at Croquis:

    @SAF

    Sabia is the counterpart of Paldea--one of the ally caravans is Liko, Roy, Nemona, and Juliana, who traveled from Sabia to Cielore to make the journey as a gesture of friendship between Queen Sagita (nee Geeta) and Queen Diantha.

    Whelp, so that makes Fiore coming from Sabia too~ :)

    Also, questions:
    • Does Serena have partner mons with her?
    • What RPG classes are Liko and Roy here?
    • Is it safe to assume that Fiore knows the Sabian/Paldean casts as former schoolmates (I did mention Fiore being a Mesagoza Academy graduate in their bio) or something?

    Yes--Krystal the Braixen and Bijou the Sylveon
    Liko is a dancer and Roy is a monk/fighter
    Yes, that would make sense (you will get a little warning when you meet one of the three ally caravans)

    First off can I still join?
    I wanted to try a group rp again and this one seems small enough.
    Also Wave can I use Kirito? I will adjust his personality a bit though. Or would ya rather that I create a new character. If I can still join

    @Pirate Captain

    The nature of the RP is that people can still join in towns and cities--I would prefer you make someone new, however.

    I see, I get it. No worries. I go special on my laptop for this haha


    Character's name: Cele
    Character's origin: Since she was a small baby she moved from a far away place to Cielore. She has no memory of it, so she always keeps telling others that she is from there.
    Character's age: 15
    Character's physical appearance: I upload a file , The star represents the company her father works at as a cleric/healer.She is still a trainee, so a total beginner but that is her ultimate goal
    Character's backstory/known history: She always wanted to see the world, even though she has a laid back attitude and at times she can be to lazy to do anything. When she heard about the caravan her mother encouraged her to go with them. Of course she didn't feel like it, the same as she was with learning how to be a good healer like her father and with catching her first Pokémon partner. She needs to be pushed sometimes to do stuff but at the same time, she is very friendly and kind towardss others.
    Character's class: Cleric Healer
    Character's current inventory: Goomy Pokéball/heartcharm, snacks, 1000 gold, basic meds
    Character's Pokémon, if any: Goomy

    @El Nino @Captain Cold

    Something like a locket (if you just have one Pokémon) or a charm bracelet if you have multiple. Not all of them are red or pink--the color of the heart is a clue to the type(s) of the Pokémon inside.

    In that case, did the heart charms Fiore had bought come with a charm bracelet? And would it make sense if the charms' colors correspond to the type gems?

    Yes, and yes--if you have more than six caught Pokémon, a charm storage box will hold the inactive charms.
