    Ahoy there mateys, and welcome to the Scramble Pirates RP! Get ready for a grand old time of sailing, plundering, and of course, treasure~ You all know your factions and skills, so let’s get right to it!

    Basic Rules:
    • As the story takes place in a colonial-esque time period, high-tech stuff like cars, planes, and electricity are not allowed.
    • Extreme violence/blood/death/etc. should be kept to a minimum as much as possible. Bruises/scratches/mild illnesses are okay; maiming and mutilating is not!
    • If a scene is progressing smoothly, do not try to interrupt with a “lolrandom” interjection. This ruins the flow, and the attempt at “humor” will quickly wear off when other people get confused.
    RPs will take place in “chapters”, with a new chapter occurring every two weeks or so, depending on how we all move along. Each chapter will begin with a basic premise/plotline, and the story will unfold from there! Certain chapters may focus on a certain group more than another, but I’ll do my best to make sure all groups get their time in the spotlight!

    I, @OzoneFruit, will serve as the “dungeonmaster”. As the story progresses, I will start sprinkling in scenarios to keep you on your toes. Example scenarios range from a rival pirate/Valor Navy attack, to a storm/whirlpool forcing crews to team up/cause them to be marooned together.

    If a scenario is about to be introduced, I will make an announcement, and roleplaying should cease until the scene is written out. Go along with whatever happens, whether it be good or bad!

    This RP has a treasure system (We’re pirates after all!): Treasure can be gained (or lost) as the story progresses, and you can use your crew’s treasure to purchase things like new items or ship repairs! Treasure comes in three main categories:

    • Gold: The basic currency, used for day-to-day stuff like food, water, and standard items. Can be won/lost in common minigames/quests.
    • Gems: Can be used for buying rarer/higher class items. I may introduce characters later that can make further use of them as well!
    • Mystic Treasures: Oooooo, shiny! Mystic Treasures are very rare, and successfully obtaining one can mean big bonuses for your crew in sticky situations. Can be won in special chapters centered around the treasure. Most treasures will have a usage limit; once the limit is reached, you lose them (or can’t use them for a bit)! Others will have passive effects that can help an individual.

    Azure Crew:
    A band of scrappy closeknit underdogs, this chapter marks the beginning of their formation. No one in the Azure Crew has met each other yet, but through a series of events, they'll agree (or be forced) to team up and set sail!

    1. Oscar and Olive Oshawott (@OzoneFruit) Good at: Swordsplay, Infiltration. Bad at: Reading (Oscar), Spending/Bartering (Olive)
    2. Joshua Smith the Servine (@Smarty_Pants001) Good at: Knives, Pickpocketing. Bad at:
    3. Shadow the Riolu (@Laserdragon14) Good at: Hand-to-hand combat, Detection. Bad at: Knot-tying.
    4. Marcus the Machamp (@BZRich64) Good at: Brawler, Navigation. Bad at: Speed.
    5. Anna Hayden the Charmeleon (@HeroofFire101) Good at: Swordsplay, Musician. Bad at: Navigating (Like, REALLY bad)
    6. "Grimwing" the Gabite (@Shockwave) Good at: Berserker, Medic. Bad at: Holding things.
    7. Umbra the Zorua (@Merdrabolt) Good at: Bat at: Cooking. Umbra also has poor eyesight.

    Crimson Company: This crew is also new to the pirate scene, but set sail a few months before Azure, so they have more experience up their sleeves. They strike up a rivalry with Azure after some shenanigans (how extensive this rivalry gets is up to discussion, but I'm leaning towards mostly friendly overall ;) ).

    1. Aurora the Pidgeotto (@Fchicken77) Good at: Navigaton, Mathmetician. Bad at: Close combat.
    2. Bigjaw the Croconaw (@Arod) Good at: Brawler, hunter and gatherer. Bad at: Long-range aim
    3. Samson Berg the Alolan Sandshrew (@Ridlins) Good at: Axe combat, Storytelling. Bad at: Stealth
    4. Piper the Fletchling (@ChocoChicken) Good at: Music. Bad at: Close Combat.
    5. Rhys the Chinchou (@TripleAAABattery) Good at: Medic. Bad at: Rhys is butterfingered (finned?)
    6. Gwooms the Goomy (@Gwoomy) Good at: Infiltration, Hiding small items. Bat at: Anything involving hands :P

    Valor Navy: Where there are lawless pirates roaming the seas, there must also be a law force in hot pursuit. The Valor Navy isn't the bad guy per se, but they will most often serve as a foil to a pirate's quest for treasure and hijacking, and as such, when pirates and Navy meet, the FIGHT IS ON.

    1. "Charles" the Ditto (@Haunted Ditto) Good at: Infiltration, Espionage. Bad at: Swimming.
    2. Ace the Pawniard (@Captain Comet) Good at: Swordsplay, Locksmith/lockpicking. Bad at: Swimming


    And now, without further ado, here we go with Chapter 1!

    LET'S SET SAIL

    Overview: This will be an introductory story for all three factions (Azure, Crimson, and Navy). The story begins at a pirate trading outpost, where it is common for shady deals/bounties to take place. At this points in time, the Azure Crew has not yet formed; the Crimson Company, on the other hand, has a crew going already, along with the Navy.

    Starting Info:
    • All characters currently have 15 Gold. Crimson Company is docking for repairs after being attacked by a larger group of pirates known as the Mad Malamars. Their ship is in good condition, but their treasure reserves, apart from the 15 Gold per member, is currently gone. (This is only to have a level playing field in the beginning, not trying to be biased >_>)
    • The future member of the Azure Crew do not know each other; now is the time to make introductions.
    • The Navy is en route to seize the port and arrest all pirates present. THERE WILL BE A SCENARIO IN WHICH A MAJOR FIGHT BREAKS OUT.
    • This being a port, there will be multiple shops open where Pokémon can purchase goods. Prices, quality, and services offered may vary. Be wary! Not all shops are looking out for your well-being!

    Story, START

    Time: 12 PM

    Location: Pavicro Port
    Location Details: This is a medium-sized island outpost commonly visited by pirates of all crews for trading and purchasing goods. The residents here are keen and shady, and while some are good businessmons (if a bit shrewd), others will be more than happy to take advantage of newer crews and the guillble suckers. Pick your purchases wisely if you stop off to shop!

    -----

    As the afternoon sun continued to beat down on Pavicro Port, a lone ship began to shore up. Its crimson sails were covered in soot, and a few of the metal strips guarding the rails were dented. The smell of cannon powder still lingered in the air around it; this ship had obviously seen battle recently, but seemed to have gotten away relatively unscathed. A scarlet Dhelmise hung from the starboard side, and began to lower itself into the water. It let out a rumble of relief.

    "We made it everyone," Donna the Dhelmise hissed in her usual strange tones; her voice sounded similar to metal slowly being dragged across a wet rock. "Is everyone all right?"

    CRIMSON COMPANY HAS THE STAGE. BEGIN SCENE.

    Bigjaw let out a annoyed hiss. “Man, I never thought I’d hate the smell of gun powder so much.” Bigjaw said as he walked over to the Dhelmise. “And I’ve shot muscled out fo a cannon.” Bigjaw said. He may have been a whole shade of blue darker for a week but it was worth it in his mind. The wind in his scales as he saw his opponent have deadpanned looks in their eyes. Good times...

    Donna rustled and clinked in agreement. "Indeed. You were a good cannonball, and scared many Inkays. But, we are in a bad position. We've lost almost everything to the Malamars. I am relieved they did not destroy the ship. Will we have to stay here very long?"

    (OOC: I've decided Donna has a slightly strange way of talking, being a ghostly piece of seaweed. Her speech sounds very choppy, as if English isn't her first language.)

    “I don’t know but if those dastardly Malamar decide to show their faces again then they’re getting these bad boys.” Bigjaw said as he used Metal Claw to make his claws look long, sharp, and intimidating. “And maybe they’ll get the jaw too.” Bigjaw said as he bared his fangs. “Yeah that’ll show em! No one messes with my busy without getting a croc bite!”

    Donna's compass-like "eye" rotated full circle as she clinked once more. It was always hard to tell what she was feeling, as she lacked a face to smile or frown with. However, at the moment, she was slightly amused by the Croconaw's words, despite the situation.

    "You are strong, Bigjaw," Donna said. "I am going to go under now. I hope we will get what we need soon so we can set sail again." And with that, she lowered herself into the water, looking rather eerie as her deep-red leaves began to float upwards like ghostly tentacles. A lone tendril reached up and pulled the boarding plank over the side of the ship. It hit the dock with a dull thud. "Go buy what we need, everyone," Donna's voice echoed from beneath the ripples. "I will guard the ship."

    Fastening his shield to his back, Samson stepped outside as he felt the ship come to a halt. "Ah, I haven't fought this hard in a long time!" As the boarding plank was lowered, he stepped out onto the docks. In his hand he held his axe, the weapon he'd been using since his days in the army. "Lillian's getting dull." He said, mostly to himself. He hoped that this town had a decent blacksmith.

    “Man, I don’t see why y’all rely on those thangs.” Bigjaw said. “Good ole, reliance claws, teeth, and fists are always in ya and can be just as deadly.” the croc said to Samson as he followed him.

    “Your mind is the greatest weapon.” Aurora said as she flew out of the tattered crow’s nest. “Weapons, claws, and fangs are useless without strategy, and the absence of strategy was what lead to our loss.” The tan-coloured bird continued in a harsher tone, as if she was blaming someone. “From now one, we should be more cautious when attacking larger ships.”

    "Well," Rhys started, floating down, almost somehow falling back into the sea, not really knowing where he was going. "At least we managed to get away! They might've still been on us had I not blinded them with my light." He said, thinking he was facing Aurora, but in reality he was facing to the left of her. "I'll try and see if I can find anything we can use. Things only look a little blurry for me right now." He says, now facing completely away from the rest of the crew thinking they're right in front of him.

    “So.... should I take a buddy with me when I launch myself into the enemy ship?” Bigjaw asked Aurora. Obviously bot being the best at strategy since he has a bit of a Rambo complex

    “No, if you can remember my plan.” Aurora said as she pulled out a long scroll with her entire plan for their last attack written on it. “Of course, when I told everyone to listen to it, you all started to attack the ship without thinking.” She continued in a sarcastic tone. (She can be a bit of a b*tch sometimes)

    "Ah, but it's so easy to get caught up in the glory of battle!" The Sandshrew said, placing his axe back in the hilt strapped to his waist. "Besides, nobody's got time to read that scroll of yours."

    “Yeah!” Bigjaw said. “Come on, Auro! You gotta know what it’s like to have the wind beneath ya. You’re a flying type after all.” Bigjaw said. “And by the time we’re finished reading those darn scrolls, the enemy would of attacked us.” Bigjaw said.

    Rhys is able to face the direction of his allies, albeit they are still pretty blurry. "To be fair, though, they were a pretty big crew compared to us. We could have been a bit smarter about it." He says. Of course he is also to blame for the situation as well. He didn't really follow along like he should've. "Is anyone still hurt, by the way? What about you, Bigjaw?" He says, looking directly at Samson

    “Uhh, not really.” Bigjaw said, even though he had a few scratches and was covered in soot. “Eye’s still blind, though.” Bigjaw said as he pointed to his dead eye with a scar across it. “And I stil have my chain so I’m good!” Bigjaw said as he rattled the chain around his neck with a Waterium Z attached to it.

    “We must repair the ship if we would like to sail again. Though with the small amount of gold we have, we must not be careless with our spendings.” Aurora said with a concerned tone. “We should also find somewhere to settle ourselves. These few days have been very rough for us.”

    "Well, you lads look like you're in a sorry state." The Crimson Company turned to see an older, gruff-looking Poliwrath sanding one of the dock's poles. His left eye was covered with an eyepatch, and he had a notable scar running down the length of his right arm. "Bit off more than you could chew, eh?" he asked, as he continued to work away at the pillar's splinters.

    “Not me!” Bigjaw said with enthusiasm. “I took a bit of their ship with me!” the croc said as he held up a piece of the enemies ship he bit off. It’s a long story involving a canon....

    A bit more of his sight came back to him. Things still looked blurry, but Rhys could now at least make out which Pokémon are which now. He turned to the Poliwrath who suddenly spoke to their group. "Yeah, but things could have gone a lot worse for us, so thank goodness for that!" He said. He tried looking behind him to see if he could make any of the shops out but it was still too blurry from where he was to see what they were. He turned back to the Poliwrath with a curious look. "Sorry to ask, but do you know where we could go to get some supplies to fix up our ship? I still can't make anything out from here."
