Quick Updates

Weather Conditions

Season: Autumn

With the cooling season of Autumn, Ice-types are starting to re-emerge from their hibernation as Ghost-, Normal-, and Flying-types swarm in the largest numbers they will all year. In comparison, wild Fire- and Bug-type populations are falling in number. The migration of Flying-types to the south in search of warmer weather has also started, as Istin City starts to re-freeze and Autumn marks the beginning of Cypwater Point's rainy season. Handlers and Rogues alike should be wary: Ghost-type powers are boosted during this season, at the cost of being more prone to their triggers.

Marianne Veralia Reschiglian will err on the side of caution, and gather more intelligence and information on the conspiracy before deciding on a specific course of action. Will be against the conspiracy in general, however. ^_^;

After a lot of effort by everyone involved, the conspirators have found themselves on the run. Less false coin is inundating the market, and prices have begun to dip back down ever so slightly. While the ring has not yet been caught, Guardians are hot on the trail.

[Guardians' new missions will be predominantly tied to hunting members of the ring.]
[Order Rogues' new missions are more likely to involve the murder of suspects.]

Don't know if it's too late, but I'd say that once Nekkar hears about it he'll do anything he can to get rid of the ring. After all, his parents rely on that money - even if they happen to be estranged from him. <:

Nope nope, not too late, but as a handler youll have to have Nekkar go after them on his own. :]

The following concerns Guardians and Order Rogues.
Handler characters may aid in riot control in their travels.
Unaffiliated Rogues may cause trouble/participate in riots/burgle homes, et cetera in the absence of virtually all authority figures.

This Plot is now officially closed. The Guard and the Order, after various struggles, have subdued (arrested or murdered, respectively) the entire ring, and normalcy will slowly begin to return to the region's monetary system as false coin is thrown away and sifted out of circulation.

Members' characters will continue to pursue their plot lines pertaining to the plot until their completion, after which it will be assumed to be over. Aspects of the following account of the final eradication of the ring will be incorporated into members' travels as appropriate.


The ring, according to intelligence, had been centered in one of the numerous small islands off of Seaway. It was the perfect place: dug out by steelix on a lump of rock that could barely be called an island, but extending far and wide underground and beneath the seabed, well under the radar. Nonetheless, the inevitable had occurred and the Queen, kitted out in full armor with her sabre at her side and bow on her back, was leading the storming of the island. She nodded to Valarie Barrie, who stood at her side, similarly equipped. Her Majesty admired the steely glint in the much younger woman's eye as she commanded her own pokemon, confident that if she were to die here then the young Barrie would be able to take her throne and lead the region well.

Valarie Barrie was acting as the picture of the crown heir, behaving like a noble ought to, and deferring to the Queen's commands.

The Admiral, on her command, had surrounded the island with her people and all of their pokemon. Skirmish battles from struggles with the Order and the remnants of the ring painted the early morning scene with bursts of fire and electricity, among other elements, and the barricade of ships had runners charge them, with others circling like sharks to blood.

Lady Grey likewise patrolled the skies with all her people on flying mounts to oppose the Order, sending those with water pokemon to the Admiral and those with land pokemon to the Queen, just the same as the others had divided their vassals.

Barring the elderly Lord Cramer, elderly Lady Greene, young Lady Cooper and her governess, and Lyra Nox (whom the Queen had privately dismissed as useless and publicly asked to defend her city against invasion from smugglers looking to take advantage), every nobleman and woman was present, commanding their squadrons. The Councilmen and women had sent what people they could spare to aid the cause, while others worked on riot control as many of the region's cities rose up in fury, the knowledge of the ringleaders' hideout's discovery igniting the masses. While the regions' more poorly managed cities saw homes and businesses go up in flames, most were quickly doused, but chaos still ensued.

"Alpha, take the left flank, omega cover down! We're going in!" The Queen completed her orders, and watched the nobles charge into the wide, dark steelix tunnels to ferret out and execute the ring and their people. The group had been many times more vast than she had previously thought, encompassing handlers of all skill levels. Despicable swine, the lot of them.

She herself proceeded to the heart of the complex with a group of eleven: ten of the best of the best Guards and Valarie Barrie. She drew her sabre as she entered the room, her people and their furious, snarling pokemon leaping on the leader's bodyguard units in a bloodbath from both sides. She strode forward almost delicately, ignoring the chaos, and threw her glove at the leader's feet in formal challenge. The man was very tall, towering over her, and more handsome than any she had met, which made him disconcerting given that the Queen had envisioned a disgusting little man vying for power in all the wrong ways.

He leveled a longsword, and their battle began. Beside the two humans, Her Majesty's nidoqueen and the man's beartic locked claws and jaws, staining each other red and purple. The Guard and his defenders gave both sets of titans their due space as he and the queen engaged each other in a deadly dance of flashing steel in the flickering light from the candles that lit the underground place.

One by one his defenders were subdued, bringing the conflict down to the two duelers in the center of the room. The remaining eight Guardians looked on in ominous silence. Several times, the Queen was saved only by her armour as she took unnecessary risks, each of which paid off. Finally, she crouched beneath his blow and sprang up in and instant, teeth bared and going for the throat.

The ringleader's head hit the wall and fell to the floor, rolling slightly as the man's blood pooled. It was over. Valarie Barrie strode to the Queen's side and placed a hand on her shoulder, her own blade dripping. The queen recalled her pokemon and gathered the pokeballs of the leader's, passing them to a guard who had instructions to travel alone through the pass and release them into the wild in the neighboring areas.

"I want his body burned publicly and his head mounted on a pike outside of my citadel. Let this be a warning to all who dare to believe that they may undermine my country. Let all who are foolish enough to challenge my rule feel my wrath, for we shall burn their bodies and use the ashes to feed our gardens. We can mourn our losses upon our return. Now, get out before someone decides that collapsing these blasted caves will save the operation yet!"

The Guard saluted and retreated. Valarie bowed to her queen and followed her out the door as humbly as anyone would have liked, the poor lighting hiding the look of unabashed contempt on her face at the conclusion of the short speech.



All those involved with the Guard will be sent to the island complex*. Those with pokemon they can fly on will be in the sky under lady Grey, those who can surf with the Admiral, and all others battling in the caves under their patrons in accordance with the conclusion to the counterfeiting plot.

Those affiliated with the Order will likewise be split into land, water, and air, battling mainly on the outside of the rock, along the decks of ships, running the barricade, or infiltrating the Guardian ranks to take part in the innermost fighting. They will generally speaking be up against Guards.

Any member not wishing to participate in the island battle may remain in the cities if their patrons are councilpeople and do riot control.


Members will be flown directly to the battle site in one of the three large battle threads, all of which will be handled by the admins and Eizer (due to his experience with this kind of thread) as far as modding goes, and will be updated sporadically as the story requires. General godmod rules still apply, but characters and their pokemon may interact. Please be advised that there are many, many other people also in the same battle, so characters may not necessarily meet, especially under separate lords/ladies. The Guard has orders to kill any who resist arrest, and the Order infiltrators have orders to kill anyone with the ring.
    Patrons grouped together in units:
    Grouped by city, excluding the lords/ladies mentioned as separate in the description above.
    If your patron is one of those listed and you either don't meet the criteria for their field of battle or they are not present, you will join the unit that includes your city under the nobleman/woman who is issuing orders for that unit
    Rogues with the Order will be grouped in the same way.
    • A. Harper's Pass, Cape Augustine, Marchton
    • B. Dedrius, Miramossa, Istin City
    • C. Navdia Crater, Doran Village, Seaway City
    • D. Cypwater Point, Fough Place, All councilpeoples' Guards looking to join the fight
Members may keep any spoils they loot from the conspirators.

* This will occur separately from your IC travels. Your travels will continue as though nothing is happening elsewhere unless you've just completed a mission, in which case your travels will be temporarily suspended while you participate.
Once you've completed whatever mission you're on currently IC, either your travels will be suspended until the battle is finished, or if the battle concludes first you will be continuing your travels with the assumption that the battle happened between your last mission's completion and the meeting with your patron/trick lord.

All IC posts in the battle threads count for your egg, but the egg will NOT hatch in the battle thread, and the posts in the battle thread will be added to your travels once it has concluded.
