Hey there! I know what you're all thinking - Who the hell is this fox-shaped person writing posts about getting to know veterinarians? Well my friend, you just got something very, very wrong - I'm actually not fox shaped at all! I'm a 100% human person who uses a fox-like name as a username. Silly, silly reader. So it came to my attention that there's currently a kind of rift between older and newer members; One caused by the fact that, in an introduction thread, a person exposes themselves bare to a basic level wheras the veterans remain guarded, having done their respective introductions years ago and them being buried away (or, like in my case, outright deleted) That makes it hard to know the veterans at a basic level. The rift between old and new ends up widening each year while the old slowly fade away and the new become the old, just so they can alienate themselves from the new-new and so on. So in an attempt to break this cycle and bridge this gap, I've decided to create this thread as a way to get the vets to open up a bit and expose ourselves for what we really are - Grouchy old bastards who hate change. And who better to begin than yours truly, AKA semi-relevant former developer who went away and then sorta came back but only on discord except now they're writing a post so on the forums too I guess? - Or Kuro for short. The way I'll write my own expose below is not in any way a format to be strictly followed, but it can serve as a suggestion to those who aren't feeling particularly creative: General Info: Known as: Kurotsune / Kuro Age: 28 years old Gender: On the internet I prefer to be seen as non-binary, using "they" pronouns. Birthday: June 30, 1989 Location: Brazil Height: 173cm Hair Color: Jet black Eye Color: Brown Lives with: A giant ego (AKA alone) Pets: None! Relationship status: Single! Favourite Food: My favorite food right now is this chicken salad recipe I've invented a week ago Favourite Drink: Boring ol' water Favourite Color: Blaaaaaaack!

Favourite Hobbies: Reading, writing, psychology, philosophy, coding Favourite Movies: The Last Samurai's been my favourite movie for a long time. Don't watch a lot of 'em Favourite Shows: Whose Line is it Anyway? Community questions: So, who are you?: I'm Kuro! I joined the community to some fanfare at the end of 2014 and have been up to no good deed ever since. I'm the brains behind some of the implementations in Reborn, as I was a part of and led the development team for a year and a half before my departure. I'm the person who unofficialy trained both Marcello and Jericho as developers for Pokémon Reborn, and acted as Amethyst's right-hand on the development front during my tenure - In fact, for most of my stay it was just me and her, and the others slowly started popping up along the ride. Anything you're responsible for? As aforementioned, I'm responsible for a lot of implementations in pokémon reborn - Including the weather system and over 50 moves, the backup save system and some other implementations along the way. I'm also responsible for training Marcello until he could take on the challenges of heading development by himself. I'm also responsible for the Dragon Tours, though I figure only the oldies will remember those, and last but not least, I'm responsible for a lot of general mischief around the community. If you had to choose one of your posts as your way to introduce yourself, which would it be? I kinda wrote my whole life story here, for better or worse What can I talk to you about? In a certain way, anything. I greatly appreciate wit and I'm a very sarcastic (and, I hear, outwardly intimidating) person who is capable and willing to discuss any and all matters under the sun including the sun itself as long as my partner is willing to make the conversation interesting. I'm a firm believer in brutal honesty and don't shy away from it, but I can take it as much as I can dish it; If you feel you can handle the fox-heat, don't shy away from the foxfire! Closing statements? I sincerely hope this takes off enough to assist the community to grow together as one. Throught my time here, directly or not, I've worked towards that goal and I feel no effort to achieve it is wasted. Hopefully through this we'll all be able to know each other a bit better and find some more common ground - If nothing else, it could serve as a conversation starter. And with that, lovelies, I'm done. Thank you for your time and your patience reading through this, and I hope I'll see plenty of you old farts sharing here with me!
Hello everyone. You are probably wondering what the heck a COGA is. It's an acronym for Commander's Opinionated Gaming Articles. I decided to start the series up due to the lack of places to discuss topics about both games and fan-games and what people both like and dislike about them. While the focus will be fan-games, I will still talk about official games to bring up points and maybe even name one that will perk your interests. I do aim to bring up different aspects of certain elements or even ones that are rarely talked about, but mostly I want to focus on making them enjoyable reads. Here's the ones I made so far: Pokemon Themed Topics: Gen I the Forgotten Foundation Pokemon Games - The Cycle of Repetition Planning Stages: Once Upon a Time... Picture Perfect Characters: A Little Thing Called Love Sharing the Spotlight Style and Form: It Gets Better Later Miscellaneous: On Copyright Infringement What a Pile of Crit The list may seem small now but I do plan to make quite a number of these over the coming months. This topic also serves as a suggestion booth. If you ever want me to talk about almost anything game wise just put it in a post and I'll either add it to a que or simply respond to it with a paragraph if I don't think it's article worthy (these things are massive and take a while to write).
Some credit goes to the RP forum, particularly Acquiescence, for helping me with this idea. Cyrus succeeded. He was not stopped at Spear Pillar, and captured Dialga and Palkia. He would recreate the world as he chose, with himself as its almighty head, using the power of the Pokemon lords of space and time - or so he thought. No one had anticipated what would occur when they were captured. Without the stabilizing influence of the Spatial and Temporal Pokemon, the universe itself started to break down. Machinery changed from useful tools to deadly hazards as space shifted, causing them to malfunction. People would walk for five minutes and find that their entire family was dead and gone for decades. Meteors annihilated towns as the distance between them and Earth flickered between light-years and inches. Entire cities winked out of existance, their founders removed from time. The destruction was almost absolute. Eventually, though, the universe shook itself to something approaching a standstill. While neither time nor space were entirely trustworthy, the planet still survived. Barely. Massive scars in the surface run for hundreds of miles, running deep enough to expose the planet's molten core. Gigantic rips in space and time transport those unfortunate enough to cross through them into unknown locations. Shadow permanently veils swathes of the planet as light bends away. Ruined cities from a dozen dimensions dot the hellish landscape, overgrown with jungle, buried beneath dunes of sand or snow, or simply sitting, gutted buildings a mute testament for what it was like before. Or afterward. No one knows any more. Humanity has slowly recovered. Fortunately, time and space are stable enough that technology is useable and cities do not warp themselves into volcanoes, or the depths of space. Usually. However, society is very different from the time when Dialga and Palkia were free. People have shifted the blame from Cyrus and his arrogance to the masters of space and time that seem to have vanished, and, by extension, all Pokemon. They are not friends; they are not even animals or pets. They are tools at best, according to most people. They are used as power sources or vehicles, and only if there is no viable alternative. There are no Trainers - or, at least, none that anyone will acknowledge. Wild Pokemon live in fear of vengeful humans, and some have come to hate them, laying curses upon them if they are able or worse. This is the world we live in. A world where the gods sleep, seemingly uncaring, while it falls to pieces. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- So, with the prologue out of the way, welcome to my RP. I'll be your host for the foreseeable future (fortunately, in real life, time runs in a fairly straight line). Let's get the ground rules out of the way. No bunnying. Your actions are your own only. The only people that can fully control the actions of others are Trainers with NPC pokemon.However, Pokemon are encouraged to obey their trainers, and your trainer can force you to use a move once in a while as is reasonable. Obey the host and the moderators. No, this doesn't mean obey the commands of their characters; if they tell you to knock something off, knock it off. No powerplaying. Don't act like this is a wifi battle; just because someone likes Delcatty a lot, does not give you the right to kick the crap out of them because you have/are Blaziken. Legendaries may, at some point, be controllable, but are prohibited from usage by most players, both as characters and as caught Pokemon. Don't be disruptive. You can have loud, obnoxious characters that cut people off in the middle of conversations, but don't break the flow of the RP. Pokemon choice will be restricted to an extent. Preferably, you'll take the Type Quiz in-character and make them a Pokemon of that type (assuming said character is a Pokemon.) You can also have the group make a list of Pokemon they think fit you, and you can choose. You can also let people just plain choose for you. You don't have to strictly follow canon, but any deviation should have a solid explanation. Better, more interesting explanations lead to more leeway. Your backstory should make sense in-universe. It would make sense for you to be cursed by a Ninetales and wake up as a Pokemon; it would not make sense for you to be Cynthia's son, raised by Pokemon, then returned to society as a master Pokemon Trainer that everyone adores for no readily apparent reason. Don't get too graphic. You can go as far as saying someone was disembowled, but we don't need to know where their intestines landed, for example. Profanity is okay, but keep it to a minimum. Use Precision F-Strikes, not Cluster F-Bombs. Excessive out-of-character posting is frowned upon in the RP thread. With that out of the way, if you're interested in joining, you should know a few things. One, this will be a pretty freeform RP. There will be goals in mind, but there will be gentle nudges toward them. Two, I'm pretty lax. Creativity takes priority over canon, and honestly, I'll let someone get away with almost anything if it makes for a good story. Space and time themselves are broken down; weird things happen. If you'd like to join, you've got a few options. First, decide if you're human or Pokemon. We need more Pokemon than humans, this being a roleplay specifically created to place Pokemon center stage. After that, decide on your species (if you're a Pokemon). There are three ways to go about this. Take the Type Quiz in-character, and pick a Pokemon with your typing, unless it doesn't exist (e.g, Ice-Fighting). Have the group prepare a list of Pokemon they think would suit your character. Simply have myself or the group decide for you. After that, tell us about "yourself." Have a template. Name (if any): Species (if applicable): Age: Appearance (picture requested but optional): Personality overview (optional): Backstory (MANDATORY): Your story should be around a paragraph long. Not "he is a poochyena that likes berries," but we don't need six chapters of development, either.
