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 world, and give it purpose.

Events

Terrene continues to heat
up, both in temperature and in conflict. Beta is asking for spies to infiltrate Omega's camp, while Dentelle simply wants to inquire after the scientist's progress. Later in the season, Beta is hosting his annual crater city tournament, where people can test their Pokemon and their leadership and strategies against one another.

Season

Summer will be here until
September. The heat of summer is here in full force, as well as the accompanying summer thunderstorms. Bug, electric, and fire types all thrive while others wilt under these conditions.

Come Get Your Skills, Hot Off The Press!

NO ONE PANIC. Oh, it's just me? Okay.

These mechanics aren't made to stifle your fun and make things harder; in fact, with the creation of these skill sets, a lot more things can now be done. They are made, however, to ensure that not every character can be good at everything, as well as to help make sure that characters (especially immigrants) can't be instantly good at something, even if they were good at it in the Sufferverse.

These are more survival skills than they are Pokemon skills; stuff like training, breeding, and so forth will still be determined solely by your writing (and the RNG).

Characters created from this point on will be able to choose their skills at character creation. However, for already existing characters, we need to assign them their skills and get our fancy new skill code into their indexes! (Many thanks to Finley for creating the code, and to Kaien for helping me edit it).

New immigrant characters start out with 2 points to manipulate; for new native characters, it depends on their age. Below 20, they get 3 points; between 21-30, they get 4 points, between 31-40, they get 5 points, and so forth. Additionally, for every season AFTER the season that your character finished their starter in, your character can get an additional point if you can link to a thread where they used or developed that skill, or if you have some good logic and reasoning for it and can explain how they used or learned the skill. For example, if your immigrant character finished their starter in spring, since it is now summer, you will have a total of 3 points to manipulate (though again, you only get that last point if you can reference a thread/post where they used or developed that skill).

Put the points where you feel it is realistic to have them, and don't feel pressured to use up all the points that you have access to if you don't think your character has developed any of these skills. And remember, for every +1 you add to one skill, you must take -1 from another skill.

Post below with link(s) to your character's index and describing how many points they have to spend, where you want to spend them (and why), and where you want to take out the points. Also, when I update your character's index to add the skills, I'll also be adding "travel items" and "materials" to the inventory code.

Andrew Sol

So I am gonna tried to place Andrew Skills. He an immigrant so he start with two points. And as he been here since winter he got two more points for a total of four points.

◒ CHARISMA: -1
◒ COMBAT: 0
◒ CRAFTING: 1
◒ FISHING: 0
◒ FORAGING: 2
◒ HUNTING: 0
◒ MEDICINE: 1
◒ STEALTH: -1
◒ TRAPPING: 0
◒ WAYFINDING: -2

Negative Reasons: Andrew is anti social, he dosent know how to react to other people. This leave him to converse in a blunt stright manner. He has picked up of getting lost or losing driction. Well not obvious in anyway he like to travel in a group that tend to be notice by others.

Positive Reasons: Andrew past live as a farmer and his daily meals of berries cause him to foraging for him and his team. With the now IC knowalge of berries given to him by Professor Dentelle, he knows enough to do first aid by using berries. For crafting, it mostly a small skill that was pick up in his past life on the farm. He has to know how to fix and build things. Mainly wood craft.

◒ CHARISMA: 0
◒ COMBAT: 0
◒ CRAFTING: 0
◒ FISHING: 0
◒ FORAGING: 0
◒ HUNTING: -3 (Horrified by pokemon, I don't think she'll be doing any hunting like ever.)
◒ MEDICINE: +1 (Being a former scientist and all, she might be good at this field to be self-sufficient.)
◒ STEALTH: +2 (Skittish and the first to hide when things get suspicious, I guess you can say Elka is brushing up on her hiding skills. An example)
◒ TRAPPING: 0
◒ WAYFINDING: 0


Fleta Nell Knox
She started in the summer, so she just gets 2 points. xD

◒ CHARISMA: -2 (She's too crazy. What can she do to persuade people with her prisoner status and rage fits?)
◒ COMBAT: +1 (She fought an officer back in her first dev in a fit of rage...Sure that got her thrown in prison, but maybe she can get a point here for that. proof of fight here)

◒ CRAFTING: 0
◒ FISHING: +2 (He grew up in a beach village so I'm sure he knows how to fish)
◒ FORAGING: +2 (I think he'd like to live off the land instead of having to buy all his food and having to always murder things)

◒ MEDICINE: 0
◒ STEALTH: 0

Alright, gotta get this out of the way.

First is Shadow Melody. She's been here since winter so 4 points for her.

◒ CHARISMA: 0
◒ COMBAT: -1 (Shadow is solely dependant on her Pokemon to do the fighting. Hand to hand combat for her is a no.)
◒ CRAFTING: +2 (She's been getting good at making clothes and being a tailor under Dana's tutelage.)
◒ FISHING: 0
◒ FORAGING: 0
◒ HUNTING: -2 (Oh gods no ew ew all the blood and guts ew.)
◒ MEDICINE: -1 (All she knows about healing is spraying medicine on a Pokemon and that's it. She doesn't quite know how berries work yet.)
◒ STEALTH: +2 (Before she was dragged away from the Suffering Universe, she used to be a thief. Naturally, she had to be sneaky.)
◒ TRAPPING: 0
◒ WAYFINDING: 0

Next is Dick Mason. Also started in winter so 4 points for him too.

◒ CHARISMA: -1 (Dick lives up to his name and is a big bully. He's not the kind of person who manipulates, instead brashly spewing out heated words at whoever he meets. Other than his parents, that is.)
◒ COMBAT: +1 (Dick was taught how to fight if he ever should come to blows with an nasty foreigner.)
◒ CRAFTING: -1 (While he loves beautiful things, he can't exactly make them. That's his mother's job.)
◒ FISHING: +2 (His father is a fisherman and has more than once taken his son out on his boat to teach him how to fish. He's good with nets and a rod.)
◒ FORAGING: 0
◒ HUNTING: 0
◒ MEDICINE: +1 (His Pokemon tend to get injured a lot, so he has to make up for it by tending to their wounds.)
◒ STEALTH: -1 (He's out in an open area, where could he hide?)
◒ TRAPPING: -1 (Catching Pokemon through other means other than battle is not his thing. Just ask Night.)
◒ WAYFINDING: 0

[Jani: gotcha~]

◒ FISHING: -1 sitting still to fish? Bah! He'd get depressed sitting there for too long just like if he was forced to stay in one place for a long time.

◒ HUNTING: 0
◒ MEDICINE: 0
◒ STEALTH: 0

◒ CHARISMA: -1 (despite her desire to be a leader and stuff... so far, she's not doing so well on this /sadface/)

◒ CRAFTING: +1 (obtained in this thread here where she's whittling at some wood to make a spear: On a Wing and a Prayer)
◒ FISHING: 0
◒ FORAGING: 0
◒ HUNTING: +1 (difficult choice to only give it a +1... well, hopefully I'll be able to build onto this)
◒ MEDICINE: -2 (yeah no, she's pretty averse to this nowadays, particularly considering she literally punched her previous life as a medical student away)
◒ STEALTH: 0
◒ TRAPPING: 0
◒ WAYFINDING: +1 (this should come in handy with her love for exploring)

[Jani: done~]

LILITHE
index
Okay, so I joined February 9th and put up her app. In 9 days, her starter was completed. So, middle of February = winter, right? She was an immigrant (and is 26) and started out with 2 skill points. Add spring for a total of.. 3 points.

Used 3 points.

◒ CHARISMA: -2 (Let me explain this one in as few words as possible. xD Lilithe is an angry little sod. She would rather threaten people than haggle.)
◒ COMBAT: 0
◒ CRAFTING: +2 (She crafted a sling for her arm in this thread. Horus helped. Back in the suffering universe, she had to create her own clothes most of the time.)
◒ FISHING: 0
◒ FORAGING: +1 (She lives in the woods, and she knows what plants she needs to avoid. Especially since she has Horus with her.)
◒ HUNTING: 0
◒ MEDICINE: 0
◒ STEALTH: -1 (Her rainbow hair. 'Nuff said, even though it's fading little by little.)
◒ TRAPPING: 0
◒ WAYFINDING: 0

VEN
index
He's like.. thirty years old. So that means he starts out with 2 points. I started him in Spring, and now it's summer. He still sits at 2 points, since I haven't really started any threads with him yet, except for his first Deviation (is it deviation?) thread.

Used 2 points.

◒ CHARISMA: 0
◒ COMBAT: +1 (He's quite strong, and doesn't know his strength.)
◒ CRAFTING: +1 (Has to create his own clothes, due to his large size)
◒ FISHING: 0
◒ FORAGING: 0
◒ HUNTING: 0
◒ MEDICINE: 0
◒ STEALTH: -1 (Extremely tall and stocky. 'Nuff said.)
◒ TRAPPING: 0
◒ WAYFINDING: -1 (His memory is TERRIBLE.)

[Jani: both are done! Though with immigrants, age doesn't matter, since they forget just about everything when they come over, no matter what age they are. :) age is only relevant for natives~]
