Welcome

Our old universe has
fallen into impossible chaos and destruction, but the Legendaries will save us; are saving us; have saved us. Soon many lives and memories will fill this new universe, this new world, and give it purpose. (Our site is best viewed in Firefox or Chrome.)

Events

It's the most wonderful
time of the year- meaning, the time of Delibird gifts and of winter festivals! And as always, our plot events are still going strong.

Season

winter will be here until
March. Aside from the western Great Forest, which is too warm, and the Desert Strip, which is too dry, snow begins to fall across the region. The chill of the season has just about every area firmly in its grasp. Ice and Dark types become more common as the temperature drops and the daylight fades.

Heyo Terrene ~

So, as much as it saddens me to say, I will be taking a short hiatus in the beginning of March.

I'm getting sent out on another business trip, which will consist of long days for Mon-Thurs with team dinners likely after, and a half-day followed by flying back home on Friday. As such, I likely won't be able to post since I may not get back to my hotel in the evenings until around 9-10pm, but I will try to at least pop in the cbox when I can, even if I'm not super productive.

But there is hope! It's just 5 days after all, and I'll be back in town the evening of the 9th, so I may be able to post that night (Muse willing of course xD)

Hey!

So as some of you know, I'm going on a business trip starting tomorrow afternoon.

I'll be able to post in the evenings, but found out via SURPRISE this morning that even though they had told me I didn't need to be engaged in the project Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, guess what? I need to be engaged in the project Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.

Tonight I have to pack for my trip and leave instructions for apartment care, and tomorrow I'll be flying to Delaware and setting up in the hotel. Pending work dinners, I should be able to hop on Wednesday and Thursday in the evenings, but I don't make any promises. I'll do my best for you guys ;n;

Friday afternoon I fly back and should be back early enough in the evening that I can post as well! Here's to hoping my muse cooperates...

SORRY MY LOVES! I was led to believe I might have some not crazy time today, tomorrow, and wednesday I thought I could use to post ;n;

What It Is
<p>
It is reminiscent of Coordination contests back in the Suffering Universe, but on ice! Essentially, it is akin to a figure skating competition. Only human-Pokemon duos can enter, so pick your most graceful Pokemon and see what beautiful, epic, complex, or perilous moves you can come up with.
<p>
You can write as much as you want describing your character's performance, but you need to include THREE main moves that are combo-moves with your human and their Pokemon performing together. These three main combos will be primarily what is judged and where the most points can be earned.
<p>
Post your performance in a new topic in this forum. You can have three posts- one per each combo- or all in one post. Describe the performance to the best of your ability! There is no length requirement, but we have to be able to see very clearly in our mind's eye what your characters and Pokemon are doing. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
<p>
Contest entries must be posted by 2/17.
<p><br>
How It Is Graded
<p>
There are three NPC judges, each with their own specific element that they will judge: one examines creativity, one does beauty, and one does teamwork. OOC-ly, we will also be looking at writing quality, and there will be a random element as well to see if your character actually lands the moves they are attempting or if they make mistakes! To make things more interesting/interactive, all players can help judge as well, and will earn PP for doing so. Below is the breakdown of the judging criteria:
<p>
CREATIVITY<br>
"If you never dare to take a risk, you'll never move forward."
<p>
1-3 pts: The move was generally lackluster or boring. Character took the 'safe route' and attempted a rather basic move.<br>
4-6 pts: Effort, skill, and a little bit of luck mixes in for this category. The 'Tried and True' moves that while somewhat impressive, can be done by a wider audience. But how it's delivered by the individual is what makes the difference.<br>
7-10 pts: The move required a level of focus and risk that shows the character is in it to win it. They went above the tried and true to attempt showing off a higher skill, showing their willingness to be daring and a passion to win.
<p>
BEAUTY<br>
"It's all in the delivery."
<p>
1-3 pts: Fumbling, boring, or in general just ungraceful delivery falls here. <br>
4-6 pts: The move was delivered adequately, and there was minimal fumbling outside a hiccup here and there. The movements were in general appealing to watch.<br>
7-10 pts: Fluid motions and fantastic follow through, this is for those who make it almost look easy. The attempted move was executed almost perfectly, and any mistake was small enough so as not to effect the whole of the move.
<p>
TEAMWORK<br>
"It's one thing to be on a team. It's another to be a team."
<p>
1-3 pts: The character and Pokemon worked independently, relying on individual skills alone and were not harmonized.<br>
4-6 pts: While they worked together as a team, there was room for improvement. Whether that be from being out of sync or off beat with the other, or a move that while nice, didn't equally star the abilities of both performers.<br>
7-10 pts: The duo were clearly in sync, two bodies one mind. The move was created in a way to show off the talents of both together.
<p>
WRITING
<p>
1-3 pts: Typos or extremely awkward wording abound, and/or very short, confusing or lackluster descriptions of combos that don't really give a good impression/image of what the characters are doing, and/or they attempted something it seemed their characters wouldn't realistically be able to pull off.<br>
4-6 pts: Somewhere in-between. :|<br>
7-10 pts: Excellent writing, and/or gives a very good impression/image of what their characters are doing, and/or kept this realistic and interesting simultaneously.<br>
<p>
EXECUTION (determined by RNG for each main combo move)<br>
1 pt: Attempted but failed almost entirely. :(<br>
2-3 pts: Limited success, there were some mishaps.<br>
4 pts: Nearly perfect, only one or two minor blips.<br>
5 pts: Executed perfectly!
<p><br>
How To Judge
<p>
Interested in helping the mod team judge each performance? Excellent! For each performance (other than your own character's performance, of course) you may pick one or two of the three main criteria (creativity, beauty, and teamwork) and judge each of the three main combo moves based on the description above. Writing and Execution will be judged by the mod team only. PM me with a paragraph or two, including the points you would give each move as well as why you think they earned that amount of points.
<p>
Do not inform anyone of which performances or which criteria you are judging. This is to keep bias to a minimum and avoid the potential for hurt feelings. If more than one person chooses to judge the same performance and/or the same criteria, that is fine! In fact, we are hoping that will be the case. Then we can average out the points.
<p>
For each criteria that you help to judge, you will earn 1 PP. Therefore, since you can judge up to two criteria per performance, you can potentially earn 2 PP per performance.
<p>
If you have any questions, please ask!
<p>
All judging must be submitted via PM before the end of February.

Intro
<p>
Though originally made to be a one-time event in order to show off the new invention of Ice Skates, another has taken it upon herself to organize the competition once again. With the assistance and support of the creator and many other supporters, Shae Ledoux has organized the Ice Skating competition to take place another year! As the event organizer, the reigning champion is taking on a role as an announcer and guest judge this time around, but is happy to sit on the sidelines and watch others compete.
<p>
Results will be posted 2/28; contest entries must be posted by 2/17.
<p><br>
Welcome to Isbrand Lake
<p>

<p>
Northeast of Ashfield City, where the balmy rainforest begins morphing into the frozen, naked deciduous forest, there is a lake about the size of a soccer field. Until recently, it was visited only by the local wildlife and a few travelers lucky enough to happen upon it. Now it is the site of an exciting new winter event, and even in the dead of the coldest season it is teeming with life. Human life. As early as a month before the contest's set date, people began gathering at the lake to practice with the new footwear.
<p>
It seems this lake is almost precisely on the border of the Western and Eastern portions of the Great Forest. On the west side of the lake, the vine-covered and canopied trees hold the majority, though they don't seem as thick and dark and foreboding here; on the east side of the lake, however a variety of mostly leafless trees sneak in and hold the majority by a small margin.
<p>
A simple wooden lean-to on the Western side of the lake is where Isbrand herself has set up her shop. Renting the ice skates is free during the course of this event that she is putting on, though she is more than willing to sell you a pair if you want to own them. A few food vendors have set up around the lean-to as well, making money off the hungry wannabe-ice-skating-stars.
<p>
A few camps have been set up in the surrounding woods, mostly on the western side as the trees there are thicker and closer together and block the chilling winter winds easier. Many people are coming together to share a campfire or a tent; perhaps you will make a new friend here?
<p>
The dramatic increase of human activity has frightened off the majority of the wildlife, but there are still some certain species that can be found hanging around, particularly normal- and ice-types. Wild Pokemon may be spawned in your topics if you request.
<p><br>
The Contest
<p>
The main event, of course, is the ice skating contest! All players are welcome to participate. There will be prizes for first, second, and third place. There will also be opportunities to earn PP! All of the information regarding the contest can be found here.
<p><br>
Traveling?
<p>
As you may have realized, this event is not being held in a city and thus logic would dictate that your character must travel there. However, in order to ensure all players can participate at least a little bit, traveling is optional, to an extent. To compete in the contest, you do not have to post travel topics or use supply packs. If you want your character to socialize with other characters or perhaps interact with NPCs or wild Pokemon, you must have your character travel here. To make it more manageable, though, no matter where your character is coming from only ONE supply pack is required to get here, and you don't have to worry about supply packs for the journey back.

Though her travels seemed to flow by crazy quick, time since arriving at the camp seemed to drag. She wasn't a scientist, or someone with the knowledge and skills to help with whatever strange techie projects the main followers of Omega were working on. So, she'd been so bored since she arrived, hence the days feeling long. Being out in the wilderness, exploring and seeing all the new creatures and environments had been amazing. And experiencing it all with her little speedy fox had made it all the better.

<p>But a part of her wished she'd just continued travelling. But here she was, sticking around to make sure she got the answers she came for. Luckily, it was only a few days before she was able to get a task out of someone. They'd loaded her up with equipment and necessary information for travelling into the mountain to find and mine some ore for them. In all honesty, it seemed like a pretty interesting task. She'd never seen a mountain before, and was curious to get a better look up close and explore the tunnels carved into it.

<p>The only catch was they'd assigned her a partner.

<p>Apparently there had been complaints or mishaps with people going alone who really weren't suited for it. Leo had been more than ready for the challenge, and knew that Jolteon was up for it as well. However, upon learning it would be just her and the electric-type, she earned a long speech about how bad of an idea that was, and found someone else who was going in to have them go together. After a few grumbling protests, the duo had conceded and headed off. She just wanted to get them off her back. And she had a feeling he had the same reason for going along with it, but couldn't be sure.

<p>After a bit of a climb, following the directions from those at the camp, they'd arrived at the start of a tunnel, one that had yet to be traversed for metal yet. She peered inside, leaning in a bit to try and look through the darkness, though the light from the sun poured in pretty far before the darkness would be too much. Though it wasn't a perfect source of light, the fox padding next to her could create sparks of electricity, which would certainly create a bit of light if needed. And who knew whether this dude had a pokemon or item that could help as well.

<p>She huffed, sparing a glance over to her 'partner'. "Well, you ready?" Waiting just long enough for an answer, the woman started to head into the tunnel, looking around and studying the walls. If he wanted to continue speaking, she'd respond, but she wasn't entirely sure what to talk about. It had been a little odd coming all this way without talking, but it wasn't uncomfortable. In fact, she didn't mind the lack of socialization at all. They were here to get a job done. A job that required minimal talking to coordinate finding and getting the metal back to camp.

<p>Jolteon turned up her nose as they started into the tunnel, already getting a scent of the oddly cold and stuffy air. There were walls and a ceiling in this mountain. It wasn't exactly a place she'd prefer to be, always wanting to be in open environments, but she supposed she could humor the human for a little bit. She was, after all, curious what kind of creatures would call this strange place home. Seemed so unsuitable for living. Was there even food in here?
