    Now, for some more information on Sorland Town, where you'll be starting your adventure! I unfortunately don't have a map, because I'm terrible at them, and have no idea how to lay a town out properly, which is less obvious when I simply give out landmarks and vague times.

    Spoiler: Professor Hawthorne's Lab
    Show
    Professor Hawthorne is Londo's Pokemon Professor, a twenty-five year old native who has been scooped up by Devon Corporation and given their full backing. Her lab is the most high-tech building in Sorland Town, with a quite traditional exterior that's backed up by airtight steel doors, air conditioning, and a fully-equipped Pokemon lab. It has a qutie homely atmosphere, with its wooden floor, painted walls, and plenty of flowers, but the lab itself is as clean as it can be.

    In daylight hours, it's open to everyone, and Professor Hawthorne is always happy to talk with the curious over cups of tea and cakes, if she happens to have any delivered from the Three Roses Teahouse. As soon as dusk hits, she locks everything up tightly and returns to her home in Hawthorne Castle, which is a short walk away from Sorland town. She lives there with her younger sister, Misru Hawthorne, who is saving up money for an adventure by working in the Teahouse at night, and selling Cleanse Tags (They bring good luck!) during the day.

    Spoiler: Three Roses Teahouse
    Show
    A large building that sits in the center of Sorland Town, the Three Roses Teahouse has stood for some time, and is currently being ran by Jakobi - an elderly native gentleman with a gentle heart and a frail demeanor. He has a small garden that grows in the back of the teahouse, with the most beautiful roses one will ever see, which he grows in honor of his dead wife. Three Roses is the only place in Sorland Town to buy drinks and food without having to prepare it yourself, and its recipes are closely guarded.


    Spoiler: The Brighten Inn
    Show
    The Brighten Inn is an establishment as old as Sorland Town itself, and has been passed down all along the line of one family. It's the best place for travelers to stay, with good service and pleasant company. It is owned by a young local woman named Hale, who is both conservatively dressed and a perennial flirt. Her friendliness, and the boom of tourists after the arrival of the corporations, has led to her being the most successful owner yet. It even recently had an extension, to make room for some of the tourists that pass through.

    Hale keeps a Wobbuffet beside her at all times, one that is said to have done the same for every one of her ancestors. His name is Bouncer.

    Spoiler: Hale
    Show


    Spoiler: Azula's Repairs
    Show
    Azula is a Unovan who came to Londo initially as a tourist, and decided to settle down somewhere that her tech skills could be appreciated. Her shop is also her home, and while she doesn't sell anything, she offers repairs for any technology that people might bring in, or even enhancements to it, for the right price.


    Spoiler: The PokeCenter
    Show
    Sorland Town's PokeCenter sits right beside the entrance to the town proper, with a proud pink banner hanging over the entrance and a simple set of sturdy doors. It offers medicinal relief both traditional and modern, and its interior consists of modern tech with a layer of traditional woods and materials, to make them fit in better.

    It is run by an easily-flustered Kalosian woman by the name of Indigo, who was recently given a Lilligantas a helper. Unfortunately, Minx is a particularly curious and excitable Lilligant, and enjoys taking advantage of Indigo's shyness, especially in front of people. More than once, the Sorland Officers have had a pair of Indigo's unmentionables deposited in the Lost & Found.

    Spoiler: Indigo
    Show


    Spoiler: Silph Co. Office
    Show
    This small building sits by the shores of Sorland Town, and would very much blend into the homes surrounding it, were it not for the neon sign emblazoned with the Silph Co. logo planted on its side. Its sole worker is a pleasant gentleman by the name of Max Sherri, from Kanto, who dutifully sorts out the records that his superiors, or newly shipped-in Silph Co. Employees, might need. A young Litleo is his constant companion, and he lives with his partner, a native fisherman by the name of Tulli, who also has a young Litleo.


    Spoiler: Sorland Officers HQ
    Show
    Sorland Officers HQ can be found on the outer borders of the town, in what was once a watchtower, and has has its insides refurbished for all existing Officers, as well as an area secured outside for training initiates. These Officers and initiates can be recognizes by their long black coats, with fully-fledged Officers bearing an ornate blade with a silver hilt at their hips.


    Spoiler: Hawthorne Castle
    Show
    Hawthorne Castle can be seen from anywhere in Sorland Town, but not many people visit it - many battles have took place on its grounds, and it has a strong presence of Ghost Pokemon.

    The Heights of Londo

    Spoiler: Intro
    Show
    Ten years ago, Londo was a region filled with strife. Lords and Ladies sent armies against their enemies, spies against their allies, and their civilians under constant stress of imminent attacks. They would feud among one another constantly, in the hopes that they might better protect or inspire the people that looked up to them as leaders. Young children were sent out on apprenticeships to Knights, to capture their first Pokemon and join the service of their Lord or Lady, even more than ever, following the disaster at Redbridge just a decade ago.

    Five years ago, Devon Corporation worked with Mossdeep Space Center on a project to explore more of the known world. The first satellite launched discovered a whole new land, set to the far Northeast of Hoenn - and Mr Stone was all too giddy to discover the people there. Soon enough, ships were loaded, tech was gathered, and Devon were ready to set off for Londo. It would have went smoothly, were it not for Silph Co. hearing word of Devon's plans. They set out ships of their own, and a race begun.

    Devon and Silph Co. landed on the shores of Londo and started competing for the affection of the locals - which was made far easier by their generous offers of technology, medicine, and knowledge. In just five years, Devon and Silph. Co have made themselves comfortable in two of Londo's towns, giving them plumbing, electricity, Pokemon centers, and even helped setup their own PC system. A Pokemon League was set up, with two of the Lords and Ladies replaced by Gym Leaders sponsored by Devon and Silph Co. respectively, and an entirely-foreign Elite Four set up on the Eastern shores.

    Unfortunately, not everyone took to their technological benefactors kindly. Many of the Lords and Ladies saw these corporations as competition, despite their gifts, and have treated them with suspicion ever since. They've allowed the spread of foreign culture only when it bears similarity to their own - although it's far more prevalent in the domains of the less-traditional Lords and Ladies - which includes becoming Gym Leaders for the League. At least one good thing has come of it - they have no time to bicker among themselves, when they're all warily watching the corporations.


    In this game, you'll be playing a small band of trainers who've joined together for adventure, mutual goals, or simply protection when traveling - we'll work out the details when we have characters picked. You'll be exploring the lands of Londo, where you can take part in the Pokemon League, explore the region's history and its myth, hone your abilities, or whatever else takes your fancy. As the Gym Leaders in this region also serve as leaders of the towns, with knowledge of the land, influence, and resources at their disposal, everybody can have a reason to visit them without needing to divert for one person challenging the League - although you can still split up when you feel like it.

    You'll be starting as Level 1 Trainers, with a single Level 5 Pokemon (With three-stages of evolution, the Underdog classification, and preferably not one of the too-rare types). I'll note that some Pokemon (Like Magnemite, Porygon, and others) won't be native to Londo, so, if you want to play as a native, you may have to come up with an interesting backstory for how they acquired it.

    You can start without a Pokemon, in which case, there are two options: Your character can get a Starter from Professor Hawthorne, who will conveniently be having a Starter giveaway on the day the game starts, which will be an Eevee. Or, you can take up the traditions of Londo and find a Knight who'll train you and help you find your Starter, which could be any native Pokemon that fulfills the above prerequisites.

    You may choose the Gender, Ability (As long as it's legal), and Nature of your Starter Pokemon. You won't get such luxuries with most other Pokemon you'll encounter in your journeys, but I promise I won't do stuff like handing out a Modest Gigalith with Slow Start.

    You'll start with 5000 PokeDollars.

    You can be a native, a foreigner, young or old, with no restrictions on age aside from being ten years of age or above.

    If you'd like to request any specific information from me, feel free, and I'll do my best to answer.

    Spoiler: Londo Landmarks & Map
    Show
    Sorland Town is a quaint on the Southern shores of Londo, which is under the jurisdiction of Lord Bastille. The streets are paved with pale stone and new electric lampposts, with tapered blue-tiled rooftops, neon signs, and views of the golden Londo plains. Professor Hawthorne's lab is here, as well as a PokeCenter, a PokeMart, and electronic stores. It resembles traditional Londo architecture, with subtle placement of technology, and many of the local farmers appreciate the comfort the technologies have provided. Hawthorne Castle sits in the distance.

    Whitebeam City is the most technologically advanced of Londo's towns, playing host to both Devon HQ and Silph Co. HQ. The former is a tall three-pronged white building, with long slits for windows, white bricks layered down the sides, and a large clock sitting at its center. The latter resembles a miniature castle, with glass instead of stone and a set of automatic doors instead of a portcullis. Both corporations have provided the locals with advanced domains to portray their beliefs - Whitebeam Theater dominates a good portion of the city, while the Great Library plays host to ancient murals and modern art both. Even Lord Whitebeam, the local gymleader, is heavily invested in their festivals, despite being a Unovan.

    Bastille Town is a farming town sitting beside the Severed River, where fortune is both bane and boon to its people. Those who succeed, succeed greatly, while those who fail are likely to have all their valuables stolen by a Sableye. Its people love to play games of chance with one another, while others like to scour the river for lost valuables or gold, and none have been able to beat Lord Bastille, the single luckiest Gymleader in the Region. Not in a game of chance, at least. It is reasonably friendly to the Corporations, who've helped support the Bastille Orphanage that plays host to children whose parents suffered in the Region's past wars.

    Lancer Town sits West of Sorland Town, and provides the region with a great deal of its fish, as well as producing the best ships, the best paintings, and the best craftsmanship outside of anything related to weaponry. But, what they're most proud of is their stories - it's unusual to find a Lancer who doesn't love a tale of romance, of loss, or the most joyful folk tales. For this reason, they've been very accepting of the corporations, and the visitors from foreign lands who share stories of their own - if only because it means they have new people to tell stories to. Lady Lancer is the Gym Leader of Lancer town, a great Kalosian musician and dancer - sometimes she even puts on performances with both.

    Diwyneb Town is at the heart of Londo's Blackmore Forest, right beside the Severed River, and was a frequent stop for people delivering goods all over the land. They provide entertainment in the form of tests of skill in all manner of things, from combat, to chess, to stealth - and more! If one's looking to improve at their hobby, Diwyneb town is the place to be - even many of Londo's Knights visit the town, to challenge the Diwyneb Dusk and tame a Pokemon with no allies and minimal equipment. Its Gym Leader is Lady Diwyneb, a fearsome native teenager who was unheard of until recent years.

    Vibrost Town is in the far Southeast of Londo, with its back to the mountains and a perpetual aura of snow and color. It is renowned for the magic that laces the air and the smoke, as well as its staunchly traditional roots. They play host to people wise in all manner of occult knowledge, and are far more welcoming of those with unusual gifts than most places one would encounter. and takes some joy in playing tricks on gullible visitors. Its Gym Leader is Lord Vibrost, who hails from a long line of Lords and Ladies.

    Skybloom City is the capital of Londo, and a testament to the accomplishments of its people. It sits on and in the Rifted Mountains, with great towering structures of white, ornate architecture, and a large bridge that crosses the valley between the two halves of the city - down which the Severed River flows. Once a month, it plays host to a Great Market where people can trade the best of their wares, and it boasts the largest military force in the region - as well as the best-trained Knights and Pokemon. It bears a temple from which The Head used to rule, and it goes utterly untouched aside from particular Pokemon being allowed to clean and maintain it. Lady Skybloom is its Gym Leader, and one of the most wary of the corporations.

    Parmez Town is the most militaristic in all of Londo, with great emphasis put on honor, discipline, and good health. They have recently started farming, in light of most of the farming towns now being in the League's Pocket, and begrudgingly play host to the Pokemon League - but foreigners are less welcome here than anywhere else in Londo. Although they might not know it, since being openly rude to others would be very dishonorable, so they're treated much the same as any native would be. Its Gym Leader is Lord Parmez, a grizzled and grumpy Knight.

    Thundercrag Town sits to the far Northeast of Londo, and is one of the only places one is likely to find Electric Pokemon. It is fraught with thunderstorms, lightning, and accidents - but its people have grown very resilient as a result. When the first town of Thundercrag fell into the ocean, they rebuilt. When the second was burned down by particularly volatile lightning strikes, they rebuilt. And so on, until the current town of Thundercrag has stood for over a century, and nothing makes them more proud than that fact. Lady Thundercrag is the Gymleader, and has recently become very wealthy thanks to the weather phenomenon that Thundercrag suffers from - all the lightning finally serves a purpose.

    Spoiler: Pokemon and Their Professor
    Show
    Professor Hawthorne is the most prominent Professor in the Londo region, notable for being both a native and an enthusiast of the technology Devon Corporation provides. Her family used to serve Lord Bastille, but as the family's new patron, she's taken to helping serve the League - an act made slightly more difficult by a younger sister, with whom she's had a few public confrontations. Her lab is in Sorland Town.

    Spoiler: The Professor
    Show


    Psychic, Ghost, Fairy, and Dark Pokemon are more common than anywhere else in the world, and the most favored by traditionalists, but are far from ubiquitous.

    Professor Hawthorne's preferred starter is Eevee, because it's adorable, represents that Devon and Silph Co. are adaptable, it has evolutions for many of their favored types, and encourages foreigners to explore Londo, due to its wealth of elemental stones and magic that can influence an Eevee's evolution.


    Spoiler: Technology Availability & Culture
    Show
    All of Londo has access to the PC system, as well as signals for all of the services elsewhere.

    The civilized areas of Londo have plumbing, electric lighting, as well as PokeCenters and PokeMarts, and a fair deal of appliances installed in their homes. Pokeballs have become commonplace, as well as some foreign businesses having set up shop to sell TMs and their services as move tutors, alongside some locals who still ply their old trades.

    The traditional areas of Londo are still in a medieval/feudal Japan state. They have limited forms of plumbing, most of their buildings are made out of stone or fine wood, and most conveniences are achieved through hard-work, Pokemon, rare occult gifts, or the favor of an Arm (Lords and Ladies are collectively known as The Arms of Londo). Most people have one Pokemon, which they bonded with as a child, even if it's not perfect for their job. Farming, building, mining, art, alchemy, and apricot-Pokeball making are popular, but being Knighted is the highest honor.

    Weapons are crafted in Londo's traditional areas, but bearing anything bladed means claiming you know how to use it, and anyone can challenge such a person to prove such. It's a matter of honor. Blunt weapons, on the other hand, are allowed, and tools requires for tasks are obviously exempt from the rule, for as long as their bearer is currently working.

    Relevant to weaponry, each Arm has their own methods of dealing with troublemakers, most often in the form of Ranger-alike rogues and their military forces. The Rogues have individual sects from one another, and nobody can confirm or deny owning a group. The Rogues cannot be trusted, as they're inherently dishonorable, and the ones that used to work for Arms now work for the civilized ones, just the same. Even if they don't know it.

    Weapons in the civilized areas aren't allowed to be carried openly, because they're weapons. Each Arm has their own security forces, but the civilized ones work with Devon and Silph Co. to have uniformed police officers ruling the streets. Most of them are foreigners, because they're already trained, but they do accept applicants from the locals for training.

    Despite the technological advances, the people of Londo are fond of their nature, and both corporations want their favor - so the aesthetics of the land are maintained as best they can. For this reason, there aren't cars, trucks, trains, or highways - instead, the prominent methods of transportation are ships, bicycles, and blimps.


    Spoiler: The Supernatural
    Show
    Londo is more steeped in the supernatural than most other regions, in everything from its Pokemon to its people. Hex Maniacs are common more due to practice than to happenstance, because there are plenty of Ghost Pokemon that lurk within the region - great sorrow and great joy both exist in its past, and both can be dangerous to people. A few Hex Maniacs can usually be found in or around a town, providing more direct advice, protection, and sometimes revenge.

    Sages are usually one to a town, and in the employ of the local Arm. They provide general blessings to the people of the town, and advise on how best to guide its people or one's household. They're also often the healers, and respected by many for the fact that they promote honor in pity and nonviolence. Many Knights have retired to become Sages, when they've committed necessary bloodshed so that others don't, and are often sought out by civilian-soldiers for a peaceful existence, as well as hopeful Squires looking for a mentor.

    Psychics and their ilk are usually the ones who make the most overt displays, and the ones treated with the most caution. They're often pressured into becoming Knights, so that they get the discipline necessary to control themselves and their abilities. They're rarer than both Hex Maniacs and Sages, and many have disappeared into the forests, never to be seen again.

    Spoiler: Bastille Town NPCs
    Show
    Ser Wol

    Female Knight, accompanied by Pangoro. Escorted the PCs to Bastille Town.

    The Man

    Male Bookstore-Owner. Friend of Ser Wol, Alea didn't get his name.

    Bael

    Male Head Servant of Bastille Manor. Showed the PCs their room.

    Lord Bastille

    Male Lord of Bastille. Invited Leah to study a fossil, hired Alyssa to tutor his daughter, encouraged technology in Londo. His companion is a Lopunny named Miko.

    Macha Bastille

    Girl, daughter of Lord Bastille. Tutored by Alyssa, crippling illness in her legs, got injured in an incident with cyber leg-braces.

    Ser Vell

    Female Knight of Bastille. Kind, has pink and blonde hair, and a past with Ser Alonne. Accompanied the PCs after the Macha incident. Her companion is a Munchlax named Dite.

    Ser Alonne

    Female Head Knight of Bastille. Tall, disciplined, and not taken with kindness. Gave the PCs permission to investigate the Macha incident.

    Doctor Perry

    Cybernetics-specialist Doctor from Devon in Hoenn. Lanky, salt and pepper hair, well-trimmed mustache. Apparently good-hearted, supported Alyssa's art, and made the cyber braces that injured Macha.

    Lissa

    A native Bastian, her mother was a servant and her father before her. She's young, but disciplined, and quite often keeps the gambling under control - if only because she's really quite good at it herself, so nobody will play with her. She often tends to the hedge maze, and the Buneary within.

    Hetha

    A woman in her early thirties, with something of a smart mouth that never quite goes quiet. She's betrothed to a gentleman up in Thundercrag, but has no plans on having a child - once she's saved enough, she plans on living a relatively luxurious life in Lancer Town with her beloved Murkrow.

    Ephem

    An older Whitebeam man with a broad frame and an impeccable beard, Ephem spends as much time as he can getting to know guests. He's worked at the Manor for as long as can be, and despite sometimes forgetting his duties thanks to the aforementioned talkativeness, he's shown a willingness to help the other servants as long as they're not bad folk.

    Charname

    Charname is one of the youngest women on staff, having started two years ago and recently reaching the ripe old age of fifteen. She came from Bastille's orphanage and spends most of her time in the kitchens, but is pulled into other duties on quiet days. Although it's difficult to get her to speak, Alyssa has spotted her admiring the tapestries in comfortable silence.

    Kaya

    Among the more well-educated members of staff, Kaya has spent her years drifting from Lord to Lord and serving them mostly for access to their libraries. Despite her apparent mercenary attitude, she has a boundless enthusiasm for learning, and has a handy book of tips for dealing with anything one might come across in life. There have been some rumors that she uses her Dwebble, Urie, to eavesdrop on people.

    Pudin

    With a distinctive Diwyneb accent, Pudin has "endeared" herself to the staff of Bastille Manor with constant competitiveness. Although some enjoy it more than others, and it means work gets done, even their limits are pushed when dealing with her claims that she used to be Lady Diwyneb's girlfriend and their break-up meant she had to flee the town.

    Charla

    A musical man who grew up among the merchants of Bastille Town, he took from playing at teahouses to working for Lord Bastille to support his recently-injured father. He's been working here for over ten years now, and is always quite keen to share a tune with whoever'll listen. He swears that he'll leave as soon as he can convince the rest of the servants to let him go.

    Indi

    Far from the most eloquent servant Alyssa has ever dealt with, Indi is the kind of bright person who just never got the education to elucidate his thoughts properly. Other servants are making efforts to help him, but his dedication to his schedule sometimes prevents it...not that it's kept him from his long-distance courtship of a young blacksmith in Parmez Town.

    Pomo

    A farmer by birth, Pomo has spent a lot of her life dealing with Pokemon, and is normally called upon to handle any unruly ones. She has a stern attitude and wisdom beyond her years, especially when it comes to treating Pokemon properly, and sometimes seems to resent the luxurious halls she tends to. Too much space for one family, no matter how important they are.

    Touko

    Touko is among the teenagers serving at Bastille Manor, and one quite determined to squeeze every copper she can out of the job. She also happens to be one of the more fashion-conscious of the servants, with some skill in crafts, but most guests find it difficult to take the advice of a tomboyish servant on how best to wear a dress.


    Spoiler: Others
    Show
    Lord Vibrost

    Male Lord of Vibrost, extremely feminine in appearance and dress. Came to Lord Bastille's manor for Macha earning her cyber-braces. Has a reserved demeanor. His companion is a Mawile named Laurent.

    Show
    Leah is a reserved individual in most situations. Her cool demeanour and dry sense of humour have kept her from making a wide circle of friends since arriving at Sorland Town. Notably, Leah becomes much more animated and excited when discussing her favourite subjects, be it fossil pokémon, botany or Silph. Co's latest innovations.


    Spoiler: Friends and Acquaintances
    Show
    Leah's mother, Katelyn, is an innovator. She designs components and completed items for Silph Co. For the last three years she has lived in Sorland Town along with the rest of her family. She typically works from home due to the lack of a formalised workshop. Odds and ends litter the benches in her study from various half-completed pieces.

    Leah's father, Aaron, is an engineer for Silph Co. It's his work that lead him to bring his family across the sea to the Londo region. His primary job since arriving has been to oversee construction projects around the town. Due to the Devon Corporation's greater presence in this part of the region, his work has tended toward smaller scale projects.

    Professor Hawthorne took Leah on as one of her interns shortly after Leah first met Lincoln. While the field of Pokémon psychology isn't directly related to Leah's preferred fields of study, the Professor has nonetheless proven to be a good mentor. In particular, Professor Hawthorne is eager to consider how ancient pokémon might react to modern environments, a question that Leah hadn't even considered until the Professor proposed it.

    To be further updated as other people apply


    Spoiler: Growing up
    Show
    Leah grew up far from Londo in Saffron City, in the Kanto region. With her parents working as researcher's for Silph Co., Leah was raised in a very scientifically minded environment. During her time in school she found that it was the study of life, past and present, that really caught her attention. A field trip to the Pewter City museum provided all the convincing she needed. When she was older, she was going to be a Palaeontologist.

    As with all children in Kanto, Leah received her first pokémon when she was ten. Though she had no intention of going adventuring just yet, she was still thrilled to finally receive a pokémon of her very own. Her Bulbasaur, 'Saura', soon proved to be a perfect match for her. The two would often go on 'expeditions' into the outskirts of the forests surrounding Saffron City, so that Leah could hunt for new species of plants. Though she had paid little attention, it was also at this time that the Londo region was discovered by the world at large. It seemed to Leah that her parents were always talking about work in the time that followed. The reason became evident when she was twelve. They were going to be moving to the new region.


    Spoiler: Life in Sorland Town
    Show
    Leah's first impression of Sorland Town was mixed. Initially, she was excited at the chance to explore all new areas, perhaps even discover an unknown fossil pokémon! After her first few weeks, however, this excitement gave way to boredom. There was barely anything to do in this town, she didn't know anyone here except for her parents and Saura and she couldn't even visit other towns because there were no trains.

    Frustrated with the state of affairs she found herself in, Leah was reluctant to try and make friends around the town. When her attempts to persuade her parents to take them back to Kanto failed, she buried herself in her books instead. While her academic performance continued to go from strength to strength, her social life slowly began to expand beyond Saura.

    Toward the end of her first year in Londo, Leah was very nearly a total recluse. Concerned for her trainer's well-being, Saura decided to act. Whenever Leah was distracted, be it with studying or chores, Saura would sneak off in search of a friendly trainer to help lift Leah's spirits. Saura's antics were finally noticed when Leah was wandering around town one weekend. Saura abruptly ran off, prompting Leah to chase after her. The Bulbasaur clearly wanted to lead her somewhere, frequent stops ensured that Leah never lost sight of her, but at the same time she couldn't catch up to Saura. The chase led the pair out of town, ending up on a grassy hill overlooking Sorland Town.

    When she finally crested the hill, Leah was greeted with the sight of an older boy reaching down to greet Saura. Embarrassed, she apologised for Saura's strange behaviour and tried to leave. When her Bulbasaur refused to budge, she started to get frustrated. Cajoling, cursing and eventually pleading with Saura failed to get the pokémon to move. Defeated, Leah just sat on the grass next to Saura. After several minutes, the awkward silence was interrupted as the bemused boy introduced himself as Lincoln. Gradually, the two started to talk and get to know one another.

    Once Leah and Lincoln's friendship solidified, Leah began to feel a growing confidence in herself. With a new drive to succeed, she plucked up the courage to go to Professor Hawthorn and ask to be taken on as a student intern. Overjoyed when her request was accepted, Leah began working in the pokélab in earnest.

    (Meeting and greeting other player characters will be filled in here once I know who else is applying)


    Spoiler: Getting to know Lincoln
    Show
    Leah and Lincoln talked for a long time the day they met. Aside from her parents, Lincoln was the first person she'd had a real conversation with since arriving in Londo. Eventually, aware that she may start to be missed at home, Leah said her goodbyes. Just having that long talk had felt good, she felt much more comfortable with her surroundings.

    Over the next week, Leah became much more aware of Lincoln's presence around town. Where before he had been just another face in a sea of people she didn't know, he was now a rock of familiarity. After the first few awkward greetings in the street, the two of them gradually started to become friends. Before too long, Lincoln offered to show Leah some of the surrounding countryside, an opportunity she was all too happy to take him up on.

    As time goes by, their friendship has merely grown stronger. Through the confidence her friendship with Lincoln has provided her, Leah has gone on to make several more good friends around Sorland Town. While some of these are strong indeed, she still finds that Lincoln is her closest ally.


    Spoiler: Leah and Saura
    Show
    Though they have no real experience of battling alongside one another, Leah and Saura have spent much of the past five years as close friends. Whenever Leah went exploring around Saffron City, Saura was always by her side. The two shared in many initial foray's into the surroundings of Sorland Town. When Leah became withdrawn in protest at having to stay, it was Saura that gently coaxed her out of it by leading her to meet Lincoln.

    As the prospect of adventure approaches, Leah can rest easy knowing that Saura will be right by her side.


    Spoiler: The Thief of Sorland
    Show
    Leah's growing responsibilities as Professor Hawthorne's lab assistant have seen her gradually take on more active roles within the community of Sorland Town. Most recently, she has helped the Professor organise the very first starter pokémon giveaway, rearing Eevee's and generally preparing the lab for the newest generation of trainer's. Unfortunately, the weeks leading up to the event were marred by a crime spree. A spate of thefts, apparently targeting those who were not native to Londo, occurred throughout the Town. Leah's own family were not immune to this, despite having been in Londo for several years, as one of her mother's favourite frames was stolen.

    The issue finally came to a head on the day of the starter giveaway. On her way to the lab, Leah ran into an argument between a family of tourists, Officer Nepole and Sass, a young local girl set to begin her own adventure in being a trainer. During the course of the argument, she discovered that Lincoln had had his distinctive gas mask stolen, and also met Alea and Cecily. After promising to look into the thefts when she had the spare time, she temporarily parted ways with Cecily and led the way to the lab.

    While Leah helped out at the lab, Cecily was busy searching for clues as to the thief's identity. With the help of one of the victims, she discovered that the local Munna population had been acting strangely recently. Once reunited with the others, she shared the news and the group made their way to the beach to pay the Munna colony a visit.

    Along with Alea and Saura, Leah met with the guardian of the colony. There they discovered no evidence of stolen items, but did find that the guardian had recently been attacked within the town. After returning to Sorland, the group sought out Misru Hawthorne for her advice. Misru was able to confirm Leah's suspicions that the assailant, and probable thief, was a Ghost pokémon, going so far as to make an educated guess as to both where it was, and what it was. With Lincoln electing to remain behind, the teens made their way to the river in search of the Sableye.

    Finding the pokémon's den was simple enough. Checking to see if the Sableye was home, Leah made her way into the hole to confirm if the ghost was the thief. Finding plentiful evidence that it was, she was soon joined by Misru. Unfortunately for both of them, the Sableye was merely hiding. A fight broke out, in which both Alea and Misru suffered injuries. Thanks to the help of her friends, Leah managed to capture the Sableye. With the threat removed, the group were able to relax, start tending to their injuries and begin to sort through the stolen technology.

    I think given the specialty of types I originally had in mind for Lincoln, Purple might be a good colour.

    Lincoln is a quiet and cynical young man. His dry and near instant wit catching a lot of people off guard. While he doesn't speak to people much, his intense care of pokemon can send him into a frenzy should he witness any mistreatment.
    Spoiler: Friends and Acquaintances
    Show

    Lincoln speaks very rarely if ever about this family and possesses only one friend amongst the children of Sorland Town. Some believe his father might beat him, from seeing the cuts and bruises he wears to school, but Lincoln himself has never confirmed nor denied.
    Spoiler: Growing Up
    Show

    Lincoln Syles was born and raised in Sorland Town. The greatest aspiration of his parents was for their son to become a knight, a task they attempted to groom him for from a young age. Lincoln's father is a physically large man who would strike his son as a repremand, though never in a way that left easy to see marks. His mother, while not violent herself, was not sympathetic. She would often belittle him, asking how he expected to become a knight with his behaviour.

    He didn't want to be a knight however, he didn't know what he wanted. He almost never made friends, being both unsure how to speak to people and brutally honest. This honesty and unrestrained manner of thinking helped him connect with all forms of animals however. Though he was never properly taught how to treat pokemon, it was an instinctive and automatic process for him. This was a problem for Lincoln's father, who wanted his son to be more a knight than "whatever that kid is doing".

    In later years Lincoln began to fight back, eventually being able to beat his father down, but never starting the fight himself. It was then that the old farmer backed off a little, never really stopping though, he would never stop as long as Lincoln was around. All he really knew at this point was the joy and friendship of pokemon, and the physical/mental brutality of his parents. Such that when he saw a young man pressing his pokemon too hard, forcing it to do something it didn't want to, he snapped. The pokemon's trainer was placed in medical care for several broken bones, arranged in places where where the pokemon reportedly had scrapes and light cuts, and a shattered hip in the same area he had kicked the small creature.

    Horrified at what he had done and the idea that he may have become his father, Lincoln retreated to a quieter edge of town, to Hawthorne castle, to think. This is where Ellie found him.
    Spoiler: Ellie's Perspective
    Show

    Ellie had noticed the approach of this boy quickly, drawn to his aura. The young man had a kind and caring heart and soul, but a tormented and hateful energy. She could feed off his anger, his ever present resentful anger, but she wouldn't harm him. She liked all the good about him, the food was merely a bonus.

    Lincoln didn't notice as the Gastly began to follow him around, though he did notice that whenever his anger rose, it'd seep away gently. Over time Ellie began to see the differences in the kinds and uses of his anger, her favourite being his attempts to Intimidate(Often to try and make someone back away from whatever they were doing, be it a pokemon battle with wild pokemon, or attempting to pick a fight with Lincoln). On occasion, she would manifest in the air around him as this anger grew, creating an actual hazy/shimmering darkness around him. She did not do this often at first, as Lincoln would get quite sick afterwards.

    Two years after Ellie 'latched onto' Lincoln, she finally felt comfortable enough to reveal herself to him. The young man took it quite well, To the point of using cloth and a sponge as a form of crude gas mask to protect him from her poisonous cloud.

    When the new people arrived and began taking over Londo, Lincoln relaxed. People who cared as much for pokemon as he did, but used them in the same sport he was familiar with. He quietened more and spent a lot of time simply relaxing with Ellie when he had the chance, even buying a proper gas mask from these newcomers the moment he realized they had some. About three years after these newcomers arrived, Lincoln met a strange creature. It was green and scaly, with a flower bud protruding from its back. The odd pokemon met him at random times of the day, always happy to simply sit near him as he spoke to it. At first he'd thought was some wild pokemon that had sneaked onto a transport from wherever these newcomers came. That was until a girl named Leah showed up one day. She called the pokemon 'Saura' and said that it was a Bulbasaur.

    Lincoln and Leah met a couple times around town over the following weeks, eventually becomes friends enough to meet up intentionally as well.

    Lincoln is unsure how to act on the feelings he's developed for Leah over the past couple years.
    Spoiler: Lincoln and Ellie
    Show

    In public, Ellie doesn't show herself much, preferring to hang about near Lincoln's Gas Mask(if he's wearing it) or simply above him somewhere. A couple times, Ellie has surrounded Lincoln with a hazy aura as he's gotten angry. Though it is her intention to calm him down, it simply makes him darker, larger and less definable to the people nearby.
    In private however, Ellie very eagerly takes on a visible form to play with and be petted by Lincoln.

    Since a blue was already chosen, and black is the color of normal text, I'll go with gray for Alea.

    Quite glad to be on this ride with you guys. Though I'm not entirely surprised by the choices - I had a feeling about Leah being chosen, for example.

    EDIT: It appears my backstory is a bit too long to read the entirety of it on the googledocs sheet, at least not without making further changes. So at least until I figure out a way to make it work in the small space allowed by the sheet, here's a repost of it.

    Spoiler: Backstory

    Spoiler: Personality
    Show
    Though once a more melancholic person - a side of her that can still show at times - recent events have led her to a more optimistic and cheerful disposition. Showing her better side whenever possible, she does her best to treat others fairly. It's what she's been taught, after all - honor in everything, and that includes social interactions. However, she does not appear to have fully integrated the values of her town - discipline isn't something she's particularly known for, and some could say her definition of honor is a little... Unusual. Namely in her belief there can only be such a thing as an unfair fight if the two competitors actual set some rules for the fight.

    She does, however, believe in earning honor and glory for oneself - not on the backs of others. In that way, she has a slight distaste for pokemon battling, preferring to be involved more directly in her battles, rather than order another to fight hers. The Arms doing that was what made everyone's life so awful, in the first place.

    She has no grudge against the outsiders - though the more cynical part of her mind reminds her the corporations are likely only better than the Arms were because fighting would not be in their interest. The individual people certainly don't deserve scorn just for being who they are, as far as she can tell.

    While one could call her driven, the exact same traits that make that adjective appropriate make her at times reckless - though she can, at the most dangerous of times, temper that a bit. Just because she handles bad situations in a decently thought-out manner, doesn't mean it was a good idea to get into said situations in the first place.


    Spoiler: Early life
    Show
    Born from a rather large family of craftsmen in Parmez. Apricorn balls, tools, different members of the family had or were heading towards different specialties. Of course, that was before the events of ten years ago... After that, her father, her older brother, and older sister all left the house, either to fight, or train under a knight so they could then fight. Leaving naught but her then-injured mother, and younger brothers behind, alongside herself of course. She was, supposedly to 'guard the home in their absence'... Although that might just have been something they said to ensure she would stay where it was marginally safer. Either way, she stayed. And she trained as best as she could, for back then, she took her 'mission' seriously either way.


    Spoiler: Darker times
    Show
    In the worst years of the conflict, she learned very little of her family's skills. What she did learn, however was the basics of the art of fighting from an old veteran. Too old to be much use on the battlefield, but not so much he couldn't teach what he had learned to another, though he was no knight. Well, he taught her the theory, at any rate. In the end, lacking a proper weapon, in practice, she learned to fight using a heavy branch or... Whatever else she got her hands on. Coming home with a few bruises some days from taking on some relatively weak pokemon at the outskirts of town, she caused her mother some worries. The sort of worries that might cause one to try to arrange for safer activities. Like dance lessons with the daughter of another neighbor.

    Of course, back then, she was far too focused on fighting to do anything but try to apply what she learned to that. And as it happened, that wasn't actually that hard. Agility, after all, helps one roll with or dodge the blows, and get in better position to strike back. This, of course, lead into her applying her lessons in exactly that way when she inevitably kept getting into fights - though it did happen less often. At the end of the first year, she finally stopped, partly because she got hurt more than usual. Her leg broken, she was unable to walk - she had been lucky to heal from that, and even then it took the better part of the second year. So, it's in relative calm, for those times, that the next few years passed, and the events that would finally ease the conflict.


    Spoiler: The arrival of the strangers
    Show
    The arrival of the strangers with wondrous technology and strange new pokemon species in tow, quickly changed many things. The first that she noticed was the return of her older brother and sister. Her father... Had not made it. They mourned - of course they did. But in the end, life could not stop. So they all moved to some extent by the end of the week. They certainly weren't the only ones to have done such. Life went on, as the corporations that had, by their attempt to gain a foothold in the region, brought back a measure of peace slowly worked at modernizing the towns they could. Alea and her family, however, had not seen much of that. What they did see was the farmlands that weren't there before, cultivated everywhere around the actual town.

    As things were getting better, however, Alea once again found herself wishing to better know how to fight. This time, for a different reason. She'd be the one to leave this time, but not to fight in the conflicts of the Lords and Ladies... No, she had something else in mind. Unfortunately, she really didn't have many occasion to train. Not in combat. So she focused on agility and endurance. For about a year, she kept it up... For about a year until she decided it was time to go.


    Spoiler: The departure
    Show
    When the time came, she had very little to bring with herself. Some money, some supplies. But she lacked many things. A pokemon, for one, would have made things safer. Nor did she yet have a weapon or armor. That was a problem that would need to be solved. For the pokemon, she knew what to do. Having heard that a certain professor would be giving away pokemon for those starting their travels. First, she headed towards Diwyneb along with a few others carrying goods. After that, however, she had to travel alone towards Sorland Town, doing her best to avoid conflict - alone and without access to shelter, getting into fights with the wildlife would have been a terrible idea. She eventually found her way there, two days before the giveaway. She took that time to gather some supplies - and get herself some clothes more like the strangers', while she was at it. From there it was merely a matter of waiting for the time she would be able to pick up her few companion - and who knew, maybe more would follow quickly afterwards.

    Spoiler: Personality
    Show
    Leah is a reserved individual in most situations. Her cool demeanour and dry sense of humour have kept her from making a wide circle of friends since arriving at Sorland Town. Notably, Leah becomes much more animated and excited when discussing her favourite subjects, be it fossil pokémon, botany or Silph. Co's latest innovations.


    Spoiler: Friends and Acquaintances
    Show
    Leah's mother, Katelyn, is an innovator. She designs components and completed items for Silph Co. For the last three years she has lived in Sorland Town along with the rest of her family. She typically works from home due to the lack of a formalised workshop. Odds and ends litter the benches in her study from various half-completed pieces.

    Leah's father, Aaron, is an engineer for Silph Co. It's his work that lead him to bring his family across the sea to the Lando region. His primary job since arriving has been to oversee construction projects around the town. Due to the Devon Corporation's greater presence in this part of the region, his work has tended toward smaller scale projects.

    Professor Hawthorne took Leah on as one of her interns shortly after Leah first met Lincoln. While the field of Pokémon psychology isn't directly related to Leah's preferred fields of study, the Professor has nonetheless proven to be a good mentor. In particular, Professor Hawthorne is eager to consider how ancient pokémon might react to modern environments, a question that Leah hadn't even considered until the Professor proposed it.

    To be further updated as other people apply


    Spoiler: Growing up
    Show
    Leah grew up far from Londo in Saffron City, in the Kanto region. With her parents working as researcher's for Silph Co., Leah was raised in a very scientifically minded environment. During her time in school she found that it was the study of life, past and present, that really caught her attention. A field trip to the Pewter City museum provided all the convincing she needed. When she was older, she was going to be a Palaeontologist.

    As with all children in Kanto, Leah received her first pokémon when she was ten. Though she had no intention of going adventuring just yet, she was still thrilled to finally receive a pokémon of her very own. Her Bulbasaur, 'Saura', soon proved to be a perfect match for her. The two would often go on 'expeditions' into the outskirts of the forests surrounding Saffron City, so that Leah could hunt for new species of plants. Though she had paid little attention, it was also at this time that the Lando region was discovered by the world at large. It seemed to Leah that her parents were always talking about work in the time that followed. The reason became evident when she was twelve. They were going to be moving to the new region.


    Spoiler: Life in Sorland Town
    Show
    Leah's first impression of Sorland Town was mixed. Initially, she was excited at the chance to explore all new areas, perhaps even discover an unknown fossil pokémon! After her first few weeks, however, this excitement gave way to boredom. There was barely anything to do in this town, she didn't know anyone here except for her parents and Saura and she couldn't even visit other towns because there were no trains.

    Frustrated with the state of affairs she found herself in, Leah was reluctant to try and make friends around the town. When her attempts to persuade her parents to take them back to Kanto failed, she buried herself in her books instead. While her academic performance continued to go from strength to strength, her social life slowly began to expand beyond Saura.

    Toward the end of her first year in Londo, Leah was very nearly a total recluse. Concerned for her trainer's well-being, Saura decided to act. Whenever Leah was distracted, be it with studying or chores, Saura would sneak off in search of a friendly trainer to help lift Leah's spirits. Saura's antics were finally noticed when Leah was wandering around town one weekend. Saura abruptly ran off, prompting Leah to chase after her. The Bulbasaur clearly wanted to lead her somewhere, frequent stops ensured that Leah never lost sight of her, but at the same time she couldn't catch up to Saura. The chase led the pair out of town, ending up on a grassy hill overlooking Sorland Town.

    When she finally crested the hill, Leah was greeted with the sight of an older boy reaching down to greet Saura. Embarrassed, she apologised for Saura's strange behaviour and tried to leave. When her Bulbasaur refused to budge, she started to get frustrated. Cajoling, cursing and eventually pleading with Saura failed to get the pokémon to move. Defeated, Leah just sat on the grass next to Saura. After several minutes, the awkward silence was interrupted as the bemused boy introduced himself as Lincoln. Gradually, the two started to talk and get to know one another.

    Once Leah and Lincoln's friendship solidified, Leah began to feel a growing confidence in herself. With a new drive to succeed, she plucked up the courage to go to Professor Hawthorn and ask to be taken on as a student intern. Overjoyed when her request was accepted, Leah began working in the pokélab in earnest.

    (Meeting and greeting other player characters will be filled in here once I know who else is applying)


    Spoiler: Getting to know Lincoln
    Show
    Leah and Lincoln talked for a long time the day they met. Aside from her parents, Lincoln was the first person she'd had a real conversation with since arriving in Londo. Eventually, aware that she may start to be missed at home, Leah said her goodbyes. Just having that long talk had felt good, she felt much more comfortable with her surroundings.

    Over the next week, Leah became much more aware of Lincoln's presence around town. Where before he had been just another face in a sea of people she didn't know, he was now a rock of familiarity. After the first few awkward greetings in the street, the two of them gradually started to become friends. Before too long, Lincoln offered to show Leah some of the surrounding countryside, an opportunity she was all too happy to take him up on.

    As time goes by, their friendship has merely grown stronger. Through the confidence her friendship with Lincoln has provided her, Leah has gone on to make several more good friends around Sorland Town. While some of these are strong indeed, she still finds that Lincoln is her closest ally.


    Spoiler: Leah and Saura
    Show
    Though they have no real experience of battling alongside one another, Leah and Saura have spent much of the past five years as close friends. Whenever Leah went exploring around Saffron City, Saura was always by her side. The two shared in many initial foray's into the surroundings of Sorland Town. When Leah became withdrawn in protest at having to stay, it was Saura that gently coaxed her out of it by leading her to meet Lincoln.

    As the prospect of adventure approaches, Leah can rest easy knowing that Saura will be right by her side.
    Not a bad idea. ^^

    Spoiler: Personality
    Show
    Though once a more melancholic person - a side of her that can still show at times - recent events have led her to a more optimistic and cheerful disposition. Showing her better side whenever possible, she does her best to treat others fairly. It's what she's been taught, after all - honor in everything, and that includes social interactions. However, she does not appear to have fully integrated the values of her town - discipline isn't something she's particularly known for, and some could say her definition of honor is a little... Unusual. Namely in her belief there can only be such a thing as an unfair fight if the two competitors actual set some rules for the fight.

    She does, however, believe in earning honor and glory for oneself - not on the backs of others. In that way, she has a slight distaste for pokemon battling, preferring to be involved more directly in her battles, rather than order another to fight hers. The Arms doing that was what made everyone's life so awful, in the first place.

    Much appreciated, on both counts

    They won't all be that long, but I felt like a proper intro post was in order. I think trying to make every IC post that detailed would be quite the exercise in futility.

    Aye aye. I normally go for a paragraph, or a paragraph per person if the PCs are split up, and more if I need to set up a scene.

    Oh! And you can't edit a roll into a post. It has to be fresh.

    That's my only problem with forum play. Most other players are awake while I'm in bed XD

    You say that, but I seem to have the same issue... And three of us appear awake at the time I write this, heh.

    There'll probably be more female NPCs than male ones, too. Because I like to find original art for NPCs, and it's more difficult to find art of dudes.

    I think Lincoln's just going to have to get used to being outnumbered, even the pokémon are mostly female

    Lincoln and Seren: The only guys around here. ...Would it be cheesy to teach Seren attract now that I know female opposition might be common?

    Not particularly. Although Attract would work differently on people, rather than Pokemon, because orientations and all that.

    Ahah... It was mostly a joke. I don't really intend to have him learn Attract. Wouldn't really fit what I intend him to do.

    Yeah, I know. ^^ I just felt like it was a good moment to point that out, in case anyone does plan on seducing all the peoples.

    It's a good thing that the condition caused by Attract is described as infatuation which thankfully has largely platonic connotations.

    Otherwise the Pokemon using it on Trainers thing would be weeeird.

    Aye, but Attract does specify gender, whereas I imagine it as specifying a compatible orientation. If it were infatuation regardless of gender, it'd be platonic infatuation, but because it specifies a gender, I have to assume it means targeting an orientation.

    And, obviously, the ones that affect both genders would be the platonic kind of infatuation.

    It is kinda weird how that works. Though if it were just infatuation vis-ŕ-vis general admiration, it should apply to things like Magnemite. Which I remember being really attached to Pikachu in season one of the show.

    Also where Ash caught a Muk. I had that episode on VHS. I know, getting old. Hush.

    Would the attract still work on trainers, then, if it's related to orientation? I know most people aren't going to respond much when a dog is flirting with them. (is Eevee a fox? Never could really pin that one.)
