    In a fantastic Pokémon world far from the one we know, the earth goddess Gaia, through Arceus, commanded the nature god Pokémon Calyrex to watch over and protect the elements of nature--earth, fire, wind, water, thunder, ice, the cosmos, and light.

    But even a god sometimes needs a little help--and Calyrex knew he could not protect the world alone.

    So he sought out warriors--all of them well versed in their chosen fighting form. He commanded these warriors to build grand dojos all across the land, and train others to protect peace, justice, and all that was good and pure.

    Hundreds upon thousands of beautiful dojos were built, and millions flocked to learn the many styles they taught. These students in turn became masters, and taught students of their own. Before long, the truly gifted warriors were traveling across the land, seeking to master new arts like those on a religious pilgrimage. But every aspiring warrior was told not to forget that their power was not for their own glory, but for the glory of the divine Pokémon, and the great goddess, Gaia.

    You play an aspiring warrior as you wind their way across the land, seeking to master as much as ypu can on your long journey to meet Calyrex at the peak of Lotus Flower Mountain.

    Your guides on this journey are a band of four best friends:

    --Ash, who can wield the song of a bansi as well as a sword or a bow

    --Misty, who wields twin blades of water and ice

    --Brock, whose joie de vivre and magical song belie an expert archer and swordsman

    --Serena, whose magical dance is both beautiful and deadly to the forces of evil

    What wonders and terrors await you on your journey? Can you master the very powers of the world itself, and meet Calyrex face to face as Heroes of Nature?

    I'm... not sure how to tweak Alvin's bio to match this RP's setting, haha. :sweat:

    And yes, I'm talking of Marissa's twin brother from another RP.

    It's okay to build a new character from scratch--I still need time to build the route you guys would be taking.

    Also, question: would modern technologies (like Rotom Phone) be out of place in this RP? Or are they actually A-OK?

    I prolly should try a modern-kid-thrown-into-ancient-setting character for a spin...
    Name: Alvin Dee
    Age: 13 y.o.
    Appearance: (Not shown: a blue backpack that matches with his shorts)
    [​IMG]
    Backstory: Marissa and Alvin Dee are a pair of twins hailing from the modern day Hulbury who took part in the Galar League together. They were so inseparable to the point of Raihan, who usually conducts his gym battles as double battles, allowing them to challenge him as a pair instead of doing so individually. However, after finishing their gym challenges and upon hearing about these two places called the Isle of Armor and the Crown Tundra, they decided to split up to explore both places at the same time. Marissa chose to make her way to the Isle of Armor while Alvin opted to explore the Crown Tundra all by himself.

    But then a portal randomly appeared under his feet while he was waiting for the train to the Crown Tundra. For whatever reasons, it sucked him into an entirely different universe -- and threw him into a whole different adventure, far from what he originally had expected. To make things worse, he couldn't go home before meeting the ruler of this universe, so he's pretty much in for one hell of a ride.

    Martial art proficiency:
    • Mainly unarmed, considering he's originally from a different universe from the RP setting
    • Might pick up some melee weapons on the way
    • Has a potential for red chi / fire magic (though he hasn't realized it yet)

    Pokémon:
    • Libero (male Cinderace)
    • Rockman (male Toxtricity - the Amped one)
    • Corvus (female Corviknight)
    • Frosthra (female Frosmoth)
    • Lancelot (male Sirfetch'd)
    • Peach (female Hatterene, sometimes addressed as Princess Peach)

    Oops -- lemme do something about it...

    Edit: Not sure why, but the internal attachment didn't work. I had to use Imgur for this one.

    Edited Alvin's bio because I've been debating whether I should go for a full party of six or just with five mons.

    Also, is it okay if we start when the next postfest begins? If nobody applies until then, I don't mind making this 1v1.

    @SAF

    Go with the setup you believe is best.

    When is the next postfest? I will make this 1 on 1 on that day.

    I think we should ask the mods about that...

    Edit: Okay, I did the asking in Discord and this is what I got:

    Awesome! I will go ahead and do so right now, thanks! :)

    Character's name: Mason Hitoka
    Character's age: 12
    Character's physical appearance: Mason Hitoka.png
    Character's backstory: Mason Hitoka is from the town of Aventia, where he lives with his parents Amelia and Shane Hitoka. Mason recently became a Pokémon Trainer, as his parents thought that twelve was the perfect age to begin a journey.
    Character's known Pokémon: Snivy (received as a gift in Aventia, female) and Starly (recieved as a gift from a relative living in the town of Sensha, female)
    Character's known martial art proficiencies: taekwando (I actually did takewando for a little while in real life and got up to junior yellow belt, so that's the rank Mason Hitoka is)

    I hope that this works.

    @NaruhinaKage

    Your signup is Pending

    This RP is set in a fantastic Pokeworld, so Unova and Shinou don't exist per se. I do have fantasy-ified versions of the locations handy, if you need them. Trainers are known as tamers in this world.

    Also, you'll want to edit your sign-up post if you need to. There's an "Edit" button at your post for that purpose.
