Mitsuru, nice, the Persona series is a favorite and is surprisingly fitting in this instant.

Rise's appearance lends to her actual personality as slightly shy and reserved. Mitsuru wears confidence, if the look on her face is anything to go by :smalltongue:

My own Wis check to see if what they just did was some form of slight of hand (like having a blood pack on her hand filled with Rosesong blood to activate the sword or if it was just a trick and it was a pokemon the whole time).

Okay, guys, I have something I think is a big risk, but it may pay off in the long run as I may have left residue and do not want to raise flags, especially since if they can nullify me, they may be able to sense me too.
I plan to mention Emma's an empath, play off what was used as simply getting vibes off emotions on a large scale, and mentioning that there is no customary emanation from her. You guys think that this'll backfire on me or work out?

IrnBruAddict
2014-04-07, 05:39 PM
I should probably give you guys a list of everything the van can do.

It's a modified 6 person camper van.
It is powered by solar panels, but has a tan of gas in-case of night time driving or desert storms.
It has 2 modes of transport, wheeled and hover.
Hover is to prevent it getting stuck in sand, and floats a few inches off the ground. It's advised to not drive up hills or over water in hover mode.
The tire mode is a set of off-road tires, with 2 spares. The rims are also reinforced, to give you 20-30 minutes of driving on rims in emergency.
The van contains a water purifier and a fridge for travel, decently stocked.
It contains a healing bed to heal up to 6 pokemon just like a Centre would, but needs 12 hours of charging with the solar panels to recharge.
It has a state of the art GPS system.
It has a secured phone line, with access to both Gateon Ranger HQ and Cross(the guy who made the van)'s personal line, using it for other numbers is not advised outside emergencies since it would no longer be secure.
It has another secure line for access to your boxes.
It has 2 one-shot flare guns.
A bio lock, so only a registered person holding the keys can enter the van.
It does not have access to the internet, for security purposes.

Hey guys, I'm tempted to have Garret join the fun since he has been behaving better. What do you folks think?

Also Irn, does the ground count as a SPeed 0 or 1 target if I were to use Electroball on it?

Eshkigal

I dunno, this is a lot of juice flying about, so it may be like him and the gengar again. Maybe if you feed him first.

IrnBruAddict
2014-04-11, 11:20 AM
since speed 0 would lead to an infinite electroball (don't divide by 0), I'd say use speed 1 if you are going to.

Regalus
2014-04-11, 11:24 AM
So given the time that's been spent since their little heart to heart, would Damien have a good reason to believe Garret might be able to handle the experience +/- a snack before hand to take the edge off his nerves?

IrnBruAddict
2014-04-11, 11:48 AM

Regalus

I'm here, and I think Sayuri will use purple for her speech.

IC post will be along presently.


Name: Sayuri (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1_xzGwBwPPl3cXodH3ZsuuvagLnzJd8CMILrcJi9pb7E/edit?usp=sharing)
Gender: Female
Origin: Hoenn
Age: 23

http://i1140.photobucket.com/albums/n570/aneurin2/Sayuri_zpse07a1aa4.png

Ten Years Ago, Tentin Ranch

Far off in the distance is a speck that – if you knew what it was you were looking at – might just be recognisable as a thirteen year-old girl riding a ponyta, her long black hair billowing out behind her, and the dust-stained hem once-pristine dress hitched up around her knees. Behind her, there’s a smaller speck with it’s own dust cloud, that could quite easily be a faithful growlithe racing after his mistress.

“Say-yur-ri!” Hideki Tentin bellows for at least the tenth time. As with every other attempt to call her, though, the distant dust cloud ignores him. “Say- Ah, what is wrong with that girl?” he sighs in exasperation, shading his eyes to squint at the increasingly distant figure. “She pesters me for a week to come with me to Lilycove to buy supplies, then the day we’re due to set out she ups and vanishes!” he adds, scowling and tugging at his beard in frustration.

“She’s your daughter, dear,” Eri Tentin looks up briefly from her sewing. “She takes after her father,”

Five Years Ago, PokéMonthly HQ, Rustboro City

Sayuri flinches as the man suddenly leans forward over the desk.

“So. You think you’ve got what it takes to be a photographer for PokéMonthly, Miss Tentin?”

Nervously, she nods. The flowing black locks are now green and hang to her waist in twin ponytails, and she’s wearing a white summer dress – which is currently being twisted by her hands beneath the table. The man really is quite intimidating.

“Hmm,” he somehow makes it sound like a condemnation. “These are samples of your work?” he asks, waving a hand at the scattered shots before him. Once again, Sayuri nods – this time with more confidence. She’s proud of her pictures.

“Impressive,” he raises a bushy eyebrow. “And you can produce more like this, on request?”

“Ye-“

“Then you’re hired. Your references check out, and we always need talent like yours. Go and see Miss Takani and she’ll tell you what to do next,” Before Sayuri can even begin to thank him, he’s calling for the next applicant.

One Month Ago, Head Office of Ten Tin Pictures – also known as Sayuri’s Flat

Well, freelance work wasn’t going so great after all. Seemed like such a great idea at the time – no deadlines, no editor cursing your work and no involuntary early starts. It would be a great idea, too, if only people wanted freelance photographers - or, at least, wanted to pay them a decent amount of cash. Ugh. Well, checking the mail might kill another ten minutes.

Bill.
Bill.
Another bill...
Rent’s due...
Huh. What’s this?

The envelope’s stamped with PokéMonthly’s logo – but why would they be sending her anything after she quit two months ago? Unless it’s the months’ wages they claim they don’t owe her. Shyeah, like that’s gonna happen.

What’s inside, though, is a surprise.

Hey, Sayuri,

It’s been a while since I heard from you, though I guess you’re busy with the new job and all. Still – you should find time to write to your friends!

Anyway, since I know Mr. Hawthorn still refuses to cough up the pay he owes you, I thought he could do you a favour another way – aside from ‘lending’ me the stationary to write to you, ha ha!

There's a big tournament being held for Princess Elizabeth's birthday coming up, and PokéMonthly has been given some press badges. It just so happens that someone I really, really hope will remain nameless 'accidentally' added your name to the list of eligibile staff, and then 'accidentally' issued one in your name - what a totally lucky coincidence for you! I know you don't do the journalist thing so much any more, but I bet you'll have a great chance to score some commissions of the vain up-and-comings fighting for a place in the League - and you'll get the best seat for taking pictures of the matches, too.

Now, I don’t know if you care much about life back here at the office, but things have been pretty dull since you left. No-one training the local pidgeys to have ‘accidents’ – wink wink – on the boss, or swapping the labels of Attract and Repel before someone goes out on a field expedition, and we certainly haven’t had anyone sneak their growlithe past building security!

Oh, things haven’t been half so fun here since you left. I hope you’re keeping well, and Ten Tin Pictures is the fabulous success it ought to be! When you need to hire a secretary, I certainly hope you’ll keep me in mind!

Take care of yourself, and write soon – or else!

Your friend,
Lizzie Takani

P.S. Say hi to Teddy for me!

P.P.S. I don't know if I said, but a few months ago my brother got in to training in a big way and catches simply everything he sees. He's got so many now he doesn't know what to do with them all! He asked me if I knew a trainer who might help look after some, and I thought of you - I know how well you look after Teddy, Ali and Willow, after all, and I thought they might like a grimer to be friends with.

P.P.P.S I called him Muckles! He's adorable, if a bit smelly.

Sayuri puts the letter down very, very carefully and looks at the pokeball in her other hand that had come with the letter. Already an unpleasant, and curiously penetrative smell is coming from it. It's hard to think of a pokemon less appropriate to have in a confined space - but that's Lizzie all over, one moment radiating pure genius and the next doing something utterly crazy.

She smiles at her friend's inimitable eclectic style, and glances down at the growlithe lying beside the sofa.

“Hey, boy,” she says softly, her voice still carrying a hint of the drawl of her home. “Lizzie says hi. You remember Lizzie, right?”

Teddy’s ears twitch a couple of times, before letting out a ‘huff’ – one which likely means “don’t care, sleeping”. Sayuri responds by resting her feet on him as she sorts through the last of the mail.

"Well, I could sure use the work," she says after a while in a thoughtful tone. "How d'you feel about a trip, boy?" she adds, giving Teddy a poke with one toe.

Teddy huffs again, and settles himself more firmly - fiercely determined to finish his nap, no matter what the consequences.

"Guess I'll take that as a yes, then..." she sniffs, and wrinkles her nose. The newly arrived Muckles is busily adding his unique aroma to the tiny apartment. "And maybe I'll find someone who wants to give a poor grimer a good home with lots and lots of fresh air around him..."

Cherubi using Magic Leaf against a Mincino (Raise Magic Leaf's AC by 2 against one of Sayuri's pokemon) = $320

Jeff being carried away by a Knight = $280

Violet fishing, in silhouette against the sea and the bright blue sky = $300

Alys with her Syvleon and new Braixen, Catherine with a Frogadier on Lucario's head, Zoe getting her leg licked by a croconaw, plus an Espurr = $200

Mysterious Giant Blue Bird from the Tournament = $220

Oddish using Sleep Powder on Timburr = $240 (in Battle Album)

Willow, Ali, Teddy, Muckles and Vee brawling on a boat's deck = $360

Alomomola caught on a fishing line = $200

Sleeping Pineco in the Park = $440

User takes +2 AC to target one of Sayuri's pokemon.

just gonna point out that the reason I haven't caught the honedge, is because irn pointed out a while back that the scabbard counted as it's pokeball. So I assume that mean's it's already caught by who ever is the owner of the sword and is already in a pokeball technically.

Eshkigal
2014-05-01, 01:34 PM
Well yes, however, we're going into Agate and if we can find a loophole that lets you have your sword, isn't it worth a shot? Especially if being separated from it could easily mean ninjas stealing it?
Also, then you can surprise people by always being armed.

Hey, new player here.

GM said drop my sheet when it is finished, and I think I just about have it finished and am ready to start.

http://kotodes.wikidot.com/miranda-freud

Only question I have before I finish is about the True Ability feature. Can I apply it to my Pokemon during character creation, or do I have to do that in game? If you do let me apply the feature, I'll give my Pokemon the following abilities:

Alder: Mind Mold
Venkman: White Smoke
Alfina: Moxie
Curie: Hydration
Gore: Poison Touch
Amelia: Mach Speed

2014-05-27, 02:47 PM
Hey SoF guys, this is Weird, a friend of Kuji's who will be teaming up with him in CoF, so when Russ finished his wrestling side-quest, there is a good chance Miranda will team up with the SoF team, so you might want to check her sheet out.

Huh, I actually missed that they were Finneon from your description. Still, I don't think they'd be a good fit for Tiffany. I mean, she wants a water pokemon eventually, and a cute contest pokemon, but unfortunately the two don't really fit well.

I guess I could do a quick Bulbapedia check... oh, they get like... four or five cute moves. And they're actually useful. When cute moves are usually notoriously unuseful. And it would have at least two right this very second.

Well still it would be silly to go back at this point. I guess I could check out the evolved form and - omg pretty! :smallbiggrin:

...okay change of plan :smalltongue:

I usually just give a brief description of the pokemon so you can guess what it is, and wait till someone points a dex at it before giving it's name.

That's slightly complicated as I don't think any of us HAVE pokedexs yet, do we? :smalltongue: But I do approve of the approach in general, I've just been busy lately so when I didn't find out what it was with a few general searches I assumed it fell into the usual 'fish water pokemon' category of not fitting Tiffany's team :smallredface:

Though I'm glad to see this is still going I'm honestly going to have to drop. The game itself is fine, but I am really not liking the system and am also not liking my character as much as I thought I would. If it was just one or the other I'd push on by either bearing the system or re-rolling, but with both it's simpler to just drop before things get too far along.

Esprit15
2014-09-28, 12:39 AM
The problem is that it is a subversion of "Might makes right," which even under "Right makes might" still ultimately is true. History is written by the victor and all that.

In the end, regardless of who started, might makes right. Right only makes right in fairy tales. You have to earn your happy ending; it doesn't fall in your lap because you're a nice person.

MichaelGoldclaw
2014-09-28, 07:10 AM
You are going to have a hard time to convince a Christian that right makes might. Now is this the only way to gain might, no, but still. God favors justice, not who has the more tanks.

And considering there is a god-like being in this game (several with the head honcho being the equivalent of Him) it is safe to say that it is true here.

Esprit15
2014-09-28, 11:48 AM
You assume Arceus gives a damn about humanity, rather than simply keeping a balance. You also assume that even if he does give a damn, he cares enough and is not bound by universal laws to make sure the "right side" wins. Arceus is not the Abrahamic god, which you would be right to remember.

Eshkigal
2014-09-28, 12:03 PM
Es, relax. Goldclaw, you too.

Look, Arceus is basically a non-entity in this. Irn doesn't like the idea of an overgod, so he just made it and left if my understanding of things is accurate. As things are, it's more a 40k style universe, with Abyssal Pokemon (shadow pokemon on steroids) being tainted by the Warp equivalent, or Hell. Christianity may be a bad allegory to what goes on here, so please keep that in mind. As for Right makes Might, Rocket has might. They have enough to bring cities to their knees, and these are the ones that are built like fortresses. They are most certainly not in the right. The League has people in it, strong folk, who are willing to do terrible things, too. Right makes Might is a doctrine that may cause you great woes here, Goldclaw, for the events that will come to pass will make you question it. The protagonists aren't immune to this either, none of us untouched, none of us guilt free, after the events that have happened. Hell, I personally plan to have regice forcibly dismember one of the three leaders of Rocket if I have a chance, for the woes his organization keeps bestowing on us and others. So...just saying, consider these words Goldclaw.

MichaelGoldclaw
2014-11-04, 04:41 PM
Hold on, I have a question concerning the game.

I built a character for a light-hearted story, which is typical of pokemon. She can fit in a non-lighthearted story, true, but not in a dark one (mainly since the one playing her doesn't like a typical dark story.) My question is will this game just be dark, light, or somewhere in between, because I would like to adapt accordingly or drop out.

Esprit15
2014-11-04, 05:05 PM
Irn runs a mix of light hearted punctuated with dark moments. You will deal with moral questions and larger implications of your actions. The bad guys will come in shades of grey, and won't all have big letters plastered on their shirts in easy to identify colors.

He linked the other game that he runs, to give an idea of what to expect, but I thought some of this was said in the recruitment. :smallconfused:

IrnBruAddict
2014-11-04, 05:15 PM
A mixture. Anything plot related will be played pretty serious, but sidequests are usually on the wacky end. It's partly the reason why I'm trying to build up right now that Team Rocket isn't just "some evil group". While working for them, you'll end up doing good stuff and bad stuff, as well as downright stupid stuff. The main face of Team Rocket is a woman with her own TV show and she is publicly adored, so think of her as something like Ellen or Oprah on our TV.

To give examples from the SoF group, so far they have dealt with robo-ninjas, escaped a city full of a rodent swarm, swapped bodies with each other, battled a Regice lost in time, punched a Sharpedo, ghost karaoke battle, befriended a kaiju Tentacruel instead of fighting it, and lots and lots of wrestling. So I'd say it tends to vary.

Right now, I am just doing some world building, to explain Rocket and Johto isn't some den of evil, just they disagree with the League. And unfortunately, the whole "fake princess murder" is a little dark, but by doing it, it means I don't have to make TR give you guys a mission to off someone to prove loyalty, since I'd hope none of your characters would consider that. Afterwords, expect things to get a bit more relaxed for a while, as it's more "go do this mission eventually" giving you guys more freedom.

To explain a little about what I mean, I'll put it in a spoiler explaining what TR's first mission will be, so you can judge if it's too dark.
After the "assassination", you guys get into Team Rocket and you land in Olivine Port. Your first mission is to find and speak to the Azalea Town Gym Leader to get her to make a special pokeball, but she's all the way in Azalea so you guys have the freedom to mess around in any town in-between or just book it over there to see her, it's up to you.

I'm putting this out so you can judge for yourself if this is a game you wish to continue or not. But I promise it's not as dark as it all seems, this is just plot. If you guys want, I can speed things up, give you your gifts and then we can get to you and Es fighting :belkar:

Eshkigal
2014-11-04, 05:17 PM
Expect plenty of happier moments that may or may not get punctuated with what feels like a sharp kick to the crotch withe events. If Team Ice pops up, for example, things get dark quick. If Rocket has you guarding experiments, it's either them getting a tiny sample of blood from a shiny mon and then sending it home with a nice little gift basket, them making new ninja cyborgs, or something pretty damn dark. If it's an Abyssal mon, it has seen some ****.

However, these are not the norms unless you steer towards them, like the other group has begun doing. What is the norm is a joke, some fun. Things like mew making a telekinetic bubble puppet to better act like a person it finds amusing, and mad dressup. And guys in far too small skitty costumes, admittedly. But happier, more comical stuff.

...huh. I'd honestly thought that the fake assassination thing was just a cover for something else, given that the first psychic the party meets could blow the whole infiltration plan wide open with some casual mind reading.

The tone (and I've not read the spoiler) isn't a problem for me, and never has been. I prefer a rather more grown-up world. It's Sayuri's motivations for actually going along with the plan that have been giving me grief; the best I've got is her going along to lookout for the others (the children), which isn't a wonderful motive. Or, possibly, getting bundled in a van with the others by mistake in the escape plan and not feeling like finding out what Rocket would do to her if she told them she wasn't part of the plot.

EDIT: Also, that guy was hilarious!

Alright, serious plot with light-hearted everything else and since I am a moral absolutist, I will probably still see black and white, just black would be A. hard to spot or B. be disguised as white.

I can deal with this.

Edit: fast forwarding is fine

Eshkigal
2014-11-04, 08:18 PM
Just prepare for consequences for that then, Goldclaw. Like a lot of life, there's always gray, and the unseen black. So be careful with what you expect still. And before you get into it, here's an example from the game, one we know well. The Volt Eater.

See, the Volt Eater is an Abyssal Pikachu. That means he is literally a demonic pikachu, the Personification of Gluttony, Avatar of Hunger. But what infested him, what changed him from a normal pikachu into something monstrous, was being tortured and forced to starve constantly, which led to the Abyss infecting him. So, when we met him, he was crazed, seeking to fill a void he can never truly fill, trying to just feel full due to a gnawing pain eating at him, never going away no matter how much electricity he consumed. With the help of our mystic, though, he is beginning to get a handle on it, trying to become closer to what he was beforehand. He is seeking to become saved.

Now, Goldclaw, with that example in mind, how would you deem an abyssal? Unsaveable? A monster? Or a victim made into something they did not choose, something to be pitied, and either saved or stopped?

MichaelGoldclaw
2014-11-05, 07:30 AM
Easy. If it can be saved. good. If not, next best option, going down the list till you get to killing it. In the end, I believe there are different degrees of good and evil, just no neutral.

Then my advice? Get cunning and get clever. The princess had herself "assassinated" to avoid these problems and others, so if someone needs to disappear, get good at getting them hidden away in new lives. The terms involve psychology.

Consequentialism is the class of normative ethical theories holding that the consequences of one's conduct are the ultimate basis for any judgment about the rightness or wrongness of that conduct.


Utilitarianism is a theory in normative ethics holding that the proper course of action is the one that maximizes utility, usually defined as maximizing total benefit and reducing suffering or the negatives. This theory is an economic analysis that is human-centered (or anthropocentric) and has a moral foundation.

The Wikipedia definitions.


Basic Summary: Kant, unlike Mill, believed that certain types of actions (including murder, theft, and lying) were absolutely prohibited, even in cases where the action would bring about more happiness than the alternative. For Kantians, there are two questions that we must ask ourselves whenever we decide to act: (i) Can I rationally will that everyone act as I propose to act? If the answer is no, then we must not perform the action. (ii) Does my action respect the goals of human beings rather than merely using them for my own purposes? Again, if the answer is no, then we must not perform the action. (Kant believed that these questions were equivalent).

Kant’s theory is an example of a deontological moral theory–according to these theories, the rightness or wrongness of actions does not depend on their consequences but on whether they fulfill our duty.

Kant believed that there was a supreme principle of morality, and he referred to it as The Categorical Imperative. The CI determines what our moral duties are.

Nidorina is under the ground while using Dig, so you can't spot where it is, and I don't believe Curie has Telepathy, so you'd need a perception check to tell where it is.

Yo, Defiance players, if you are ready to move on with the story and skip to Johto, just gimme a quick paragraph on what your character does while on the boat journey over. If you want to purchase any items you can, and they'll be ready when you get to Johto.

Also, if you want a chance to capture a deep sea pokemon, feel free to roll a d100, since Tate brought along some rods.

Overland 1, though, unless there's a convenient large body of water. Ranged moves will help mitigate that a bit, but they're few and far between without TMs. In water it'd be great, though.

'Course there's also the issues Sayuri raised, like where it'd live and exercise. Oh, and finding appropriate food for deep sea pokemon :smallwink:

Aneurin

A quick question; how useful are things like Type Finder (find signs of same-typed pokemon close to the one you're using the feature on, but not the actual pokemon), Discriminating Gaze (roll well enough and find out how a pokemon is different from others of its species) and Trait Theory (roll well to see nature and ability a pokemon has, upgrade the feat to have a chance at picking the nature of a wild)?

Type Finder at a glance seems a bit unhelpful - you only find what types might be around, and where they frequent. You still need to find them from there. It sounds like a more specific version of general pokedex data, limited to a small area; "In this sewer the only Poison types that can be found are Grimer and Muk, but you already knew about the Grimer because you're using this feature on one. Oh, and I'm not going to tell you about the stunfisk infestation since they're not Poison types".

I'll probably take it at some point anyway, because it's quite fitting - I'm just wondering if it's actually, y'know, useful to have.

IrnBruAddict
2015-02-07, 01:45 PM
Honestly, I've not seen Type Finder pop up that much, and I can't say I've ever found it a particularly impressive feat. Discriminating Gaze and Trait Theory are both useful when hunting pokemon, and occasionally useful in battle too, if you want to see if a particular pokemon is hiding a nasty type shift or hidden move, or if you want to know if a particular Pikachu has Lightning Rod or Static before you hit it.

That's just me though.

Yeah, I kind of figured that'd be the case. Type Finder seems to be written backwards - you need to find the pokemon so you can find signs of the pokemon, rather than finding a pokemon from the signs.

Anyway, thanks for the answer - Sayuri's only the second PTA character I've ever built, and I didn't get to use the first one so I'm a bit iffy what's good and bad. The Researcher tree seems to be a pretty mixed bag when it comes to quality and utility, which isn't awfully helpful.

Decided to go with Trait Theory for now.

Psychics are always a bit of a nasty surprise in the PTA system, aren't they. Less so in PTU as there are the elementslists and everyone gets stat points, making it a bit better balanced, but...yeah. They hit like trucks.

However, they drain their own HP doing it, making misses a bit more costly, at least. Drain the HP and most are in trouble. Except Es, because Enduring Soul lets him keep going past KO.

That's only their Pokémon. The most they can do is command Pokémon past KO. They are however tanky as hell, between Padding+, Hold!, Stand!, and Soul's Protection. Gaining effective immunity to sleep is good too.
