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.

Normally I would have put this in the Site Discussion section, but this forum is more appropriate, methinks. http://i832.photobucket.com/albums/zz241/HarperRegion/Sprites/Emoticons/1.png And it is less for discussion and more personal knowledge - for both myself and for the other mods' benefits.

So I have recently been checking out some profiles and realized that we had totally forgotten about the long-term goals some folks set up for themselves. Like, I had no idea Maikeru Killigrew was supposed to he finding his mum until yesterday and while Air had mentioned it in the cbox before, I couldn't have remembered that every time I update him. So I think it would be awesome if members have a place to share their goals for both entertainment reasons and for record keeping.

Simply post here! Short-term plans - if you decide to share - are the little things you're planning for you characters that might not have been mentioned IC yet but would like to be mentioned some time soon. Maybe we can help you work it into your travels more smoothly. Long-term goals are more overarching plot ideas mods can work with and ultimate far-off goals and whatnot.

Here are mine.

Edit: Will sort out the other charries on their own account to prevent messy stuffy. http://i832.photobucket.com/albums/zz241/HarperRegion/Sprites/Emoticons/13.png

Emmet Teal:

Short-termed Goals:
- Travel to Miramossa and find out what exactly happened with his father.
- Train that new chansey of his

Long-termed Goals:
- Meet with and serve under Trick Stan Craft
- Tangle some more with the magic of the region and maybe somehow improve himself as a rogue

Here are some goals for Julian along with my own vision for him in the future. Also, once I get going with Julian, I hope to make another character in the future. I was thinking it would be cool to roleplay as Anthony, Julian's brother and expand on that character and his life in the Order.

*** Items in Gray are complete ***

Julian's Short Term Goals:
  • To catch a fast land-travel pokemon. Banana isn't necessarily the fastest steed on land.
  • To catch a large surfable pokemon for exploring. [Wailmer trade.]
  • Get some source of income. Will try to work on this when he gets to the next town.
  • Try out an actual pokemon battle.
  • Bond with Pearl.
  • Fly on Banana.
  • Get a fishing rod and go fishing.
Julian's Long Term Goals:Goals for my character:
  • Somehow join Harper's Passion. Maybe he finds a mentor that coerces/convinces him into joining. The idea isn't his but the thought somehow gets planted into his head.
  • Go after Bounties. Not sure what yet.
  • Fill out his travel dream team.
  • Play out a scenario where Julian battles by using his bow on top of his pokemon. (Both aerial and on water)
  • Play out a scenario where Julian uses Pearl as a Rocket Launcher.
  • Do more training posts.

I like this new thread! Skye's goals are pretty straightforward right now, and my goals for her.

Basically-
  • Obtain a Growlithe. After obtaining it, train it to be a powerful Arcanine.
  • Obtain a Pikachu!
  • Successfully breed a Pokemon.
  • Bond with Blu and evolve him into a Togetic.
  • Long-Term: Make a name for herself in Harper's Region as a distinguished Handler of well-trained, strong Pokemon.

Hmm...to be honest, I really haven't thought of making goals http://i832.photobucket.com/albums/zz241/HarperRegion/Sprites/Emoticons/13.png

  • Get away from Marchton City as fast and far away as possible
  • Catch Pokemon to be (or can evolve to be) land, water, and sky steeds
  • Bond with his Pokemon
Antoine's Long-term Goals:
  • Visit every town/location in the region
  • Possibly join Harper's Passion
  • Train his Pokemon so that they'll eventually be able to battle effectively without orders.
  • Gotta Catch 'em all! (no, not really)

Sure, this seems like a good idea.

Short-Term Goals for Arline
  • Escapism. Arline has had a rough life. When thiings finally slowed down and she was borne into fortune, it was at the cost of her only friend's life. Joining the Order is both her way of trying to give herself a purpose and a way to avoid coming to terms.
  • Refine her personal skill.

Long-Term Goals for Arline
  • Exploring the world. Arline desperately wanted to see what the world has to offer, having been confined for so long. Desperately enough that she can't see or appreciate what she already has now.
  • Open? Arline is at a crossroads in her life. Presenting her with some big decisions to make about where she's going would be best. She's leaning towards becoming a skillful rogue, but really, I think anything could happen. Arline is malleable enough to end up somewhere completely different than she started, and for her this is definitely a personal journey.

Maikeru
Short Term

Pokemon
  • Spearow
  • Tirtouga (Current Freeform)
  • Paras

Long Term
  • Find his Mother who has been captured by the Magic Guild to perform more magic for them. He was left behind because he had no magic.
  • Become the Trick's right hand man and lover
  • Become a Trick himself by taking over an incompetent Trick's area -- perhaps convincing the other Tricks and Trictesses it is not necessarily the strength of one's Pokemon but one's heart.

Macha
Short Term
  • Evolving all her Pokemon to their final stages.
  • Getting to know all of them better.
  • Treat Ares right.

Long Term
  • Find the boy that she had met years ago. He had told her where he was going to but she can't remember his face.
  • Clearing up her trust issues.

This will probably undergo some editing, but more or less...

Short-Termed Goals:

- Discover the secrets behind the "dark" knife that he bought, and track down this potential poacher who it last belonged to so he can shove him into the sea kill him brutally put him out of business permanently.
- Get into an actual battle to test out Gawain's battling skills
- Evolve Altair the Hoothoot because noctowls are bigger and fluffier. Obviously. This man has such delightful priorities.
- Catch a magikarp and kick it to the twentieth level where it can kill ships with a single Dragon Rage

Long-Termed Goals:
And Questions that He Needs Answers For

- Regain his stomach for seafaring
- See all that Harper Region has to offer; maybe meet up with a roselia journeys-wise to see what all the fuss is about (won't capture it, since having a flamboyant kirlia/gardevoir-to-be on his team is already enough, thank you very much)
- Why are Harperians so freakishly freaky when it comes to ostracizing their magic-users?
- Why is everyone in Doran Village practicing such weirdo customs?
- Why are the owls and the walking roses so flipping big? But I like the fluffy owls. Maybe find a smaller one so I can cuddle with it.
- Someone please teach me how to read this region's off-rockers written language.
- What in Arceus is wrong with the shelloses here?
- Why is it that Miramossa only has one building and my psychic-type act like he's had too much fine wine (and why didn't he share?) around that place?
- More of that magic gimmick. Moltres cares if I die trying to figure out this bonkers region.
- Figure out who this Durandal who'd sent me the hoothoot is and meet up with him, if only to run a check and see just how much of a creep he is to know both where I am and know my name when I hadn't left Seaway since Fate tossed me onto this stranger land.

Characters:
Branson Faust, Rohesia Clements

Awards: 1




Gineva;
General:
  • Run. Gineva, although she won't acknowledge it, is really hell bent on escaping and fleeing from everything she grew up around because of painful memories and a very powerful sense of mortality. Travel the region, get out of it, maybe one day totally leave it and never return. For now, though, she's trusting to her position in the guard to provide the stability and order she needs in her life.
....let me get back to you on her. http://i832.photobucket.com/albums/zz241/HarperRegion/Sprites/Emoticons/13.png

Tobias;
Toby is a very transitory character right now, and I'll be playing through his development from a withdrawn, clever lad from a wealthy merchant family too shy to make friends very well but personable and charming to a notorious and ruthless rogue.

Short Term:
  • CATCH THAT MAGIKARP... and the feebas too.
  • Catch a staryu, evolve it.
  • Evolve Sealia
  • Sell the stolen jewelry
  • Give the dead kid's pokemon to someone in the handlers' guild with a note where to look for his body anonymously
  • Get the hell away from Seaway, just in case.
Long term: (not all he's realised he wants yet)
  • Become a much darker rogue who has no qualms with killing, but who does it only bloodlessly with a psychic pokemon
  • Earn his way up to captain a pirate vessel
  • Earn himself a notorious rogue name with his evolved feebas and magikarp as the Silver Serpent for his oceangoing pokemon, sneaky method of murder, and tendency to leave a piece of stolen silver jewelry on victims and a note handed off (with their pokeballs, typically) to someone not of the rogue class in the nearest city.
    • Note; he's already started part of this tradition with his first murder of Ian, the kid who recognized him in Seaway.
  • Become powerful enough that he won't have to fear the Guard, and notorious enough that the framing that landed him in the rogue life will fade to insignificance at last.
  • Go back home to his parents and ask them to leave their merchant business to pirate with him -- or at least fence his goods at top rates -- in exchange for being able to have their own little protected island in their old age. Tell them that he still loves them (not that he'll necessarily be capable of human love after he's done turning really nasty)
  • Learn how to manage his squeamishness so he doesn't nearly faint dead away or vomit at the sight of physical wounds.
  • Catch the rogue whose murders forced HIM into roguedom and skin the man alive and drag him behind the ship until he expires of pain/bloodloss/being eaten as sharkbait.

Eh, okay. Now that I'm in the proper, serious mood to plan some stuff for my character. http://i832.photobucket.com/albums/zz241/HarperRegion/Sprites/Emoticons/3.png And that other post stays for archiving purposes.

Arshad

Long-Termed Goals:
  • Reach the highlight spots of Harper Region
  • Head for Harper's Pass (I intend for him to grow curious about the history of the region and goes in search of answers regarding the Harper's legend)
  • Train entire team up to final evolution
  • For kicks, try to worm his way into the queen's court as an entertainer
  • Discover more about this Mage's Guild (heading for Miramossa after the Pass, possibly)
Short-Termed Goals:
  • End that poacher in his travels
  • Catch a water-type and train it; possibly a magikarp - Uncertain, as he might end up still depending on his noctowl for transportation
  • Get accustomed to having a psychic in his company; will be developing plans to use Gawain to his fullest potential
  • Master the written language of Harper
  • ADVENTURE!
