    Default Pokemon Iron: Invasion From Afar! OOC/Sign-up

    For Centuries humans have feared the pokemon that haunt the lonely roads and dark forests of the various kingdoms. Tales were whispered in taverns of unstoppable beasts that could destroy even armored warriors. Fear spread even more rapidly when human cultists, using dark rites managed to command these creatures. They planned to use their dark allies to make the world their own.

    Fortunately their were brave heroes in the world. In the end they not only stopped the cultists plans but forged a bond with some of the pokemon. Now there are those humans, rare though they are, that have a mystical connection with the pokemon. They can form a link with a single pokemon, a friendship that allows them to command the powers of these terrific beasts. It usually happens at puberty, sometimes sooner sometimes later, but for those few, the pokemon comes to them, and they instinctively understand one another.

    Now in the realm of Raltia, the king has sent out word that he is seeking these brave and fated folk. He has seen the need for their power to protect the kingdom. He has also offered very large rewards, should they agree to work for the betterment of Raltia.

    You are one such Fated One. Or you will be if you play. Sign up is pretty standard for RPs like this, but I'll also have a short series of questions and you don't have much control over the Pokemon that appears to you. Don't worry I'll try not to screw anyone over by saddling them with a Bidoof.

    Kirby: Absolutely not.

    Pants: Great.... around your 20th birthday a Cubone wandered into your sights. Despite your initial hostility toward the creature you knew instinctively that it was Fated to be with you. In the three years since then you've learned to live with the thing. It seems to think a lot like you, it always tries the most obvious solution to any problem it encurs and it can easily be provoked to anger. You can't help but wonder about the skull it wears, perhaps it suffered some tragedy that caused it to lose it's parents as well. Nevertheless, you've come to learn that this creature is unswaveringly loyal to you and could be a great asset both in your quest to make money as well as your more personal quest for vengeance.

    Gender: Male
    Age: 20
    History: Growing up, Zane had ambitions to become a great warrior. However, his small stature found him only rejection. Repeatedly. Straying from the path his father and his father before him had lain out for Zane, he became a tinkerer.Shunned by his family; Zane spent countless hours with the local old lunatic learning how lock mechanisms click, how clocks tick, and upon the old man's death, Zane took charge of his business. Digging through the old man's records- Zane found diagrams that seemed simple enough to follow... and he started to experiment in explosives; hoping that one day, the military would call him up for his service...

    Midnight - On the Eve of the old Clockmaker's death, a Pawniard reported for duty. It showed up on the doorstep, gave you a smart salute and awaited it's orders. You could feel the Fated connection with it and now it serves as your friend and second in command. Maybe with this tiny legionnaire you can go out into the world, serve the King of Raltia and make your family proud.

    Looked fun, so I think I'll try my hand at it.

    Name: Gil Hastings

    Age: 17

    Gender: Male

    History: Gil lived a peaceful life not far from the city. His family adept at co-existing with the Pokemon that lived around, and also in dealing with the Pokemon who weren't interested in a humans presence. Having been taught to defend and take care of himself from a young age Gil quickly found the lessons tedious. Preferring to sit around lazily and go with the flow of things rather then follow plans or schedules he would often sneak away from home and into the forest. When he was 15 on one such trip he ran into a Houndour, one such Pokemon who hated the sight of a human. He managed to survive the attack and escape, but had acquired a scar on his left forearm for his troubles giving him a slightly uneasy feeling whenever he's around Pokemon.

    What's your favorite color?
    Ummm... I guess Green is okay.

    If you had to use only one word to describe your personality, what would it be?
    Adaptable

    What is your biggest fear?
    Death

    Your greatest hope?
    To be able to relax without worrying about "This Pokemon attacked that," or "This family massacred by this."

    What's your motivation is life?
    To make my family proud and do something great.

    The greatest asset of your personality?
    My ability to make it through many challenging situations, whether by luck or unseen forces, that many others would not.

    The biggest flaw in your personality?
    Laziness
