Thread: GCEA: Sinnoh League (Sign-Up Forms) Open

  1. #1

    GCEA: Sinnoh League (Sign-Up Forms) Open



    Intro:
    Welcome potential trainers to the world of GCEA! If you have found yourself on this thread it means that you might be considering joining GCEA. That's pretty awesome and I would like to thank you for taking your time to consider joining our small but loyal family of role players. This sign-up is for GCEA newest story game, GCEA: Sinnoh League. The story we are creating will touch on stories from other pokemon games in hope to bring the world of pokemon a little closer. The world your character exists is much different then the world the others stories have taken place in.

    The backdrop to the story.
    A series of seemingly unrelated events have started a chain reaction that has begun to echo through worlds much like your own. At first, these events were seen as minor disturbances. They are now beginning to multiply at a greater and greater frequency. The effects of theses disturbances have grown so powerful they have attracted the attention of the keepers of time. In particular, Horatio Chime who appears to be a young man not much older than 18 but whose age is unknown. Chime and his partners watch curiously as what once were minor wormholes have grown stronger and more powerful. With each new wormhole appearance, a pattern starts to emerge. On March 6th, 2026 everything began to change.
    At the around, 11 am new wormholes started to appear in many worlds at once. As if someone or something was blowing out candles on a birthday cake worlds began to fall into darkness all at the same moment. Whatever was causing this had gone unnoticed and had not left any trace of its presence behind. Chime and the others rushed to the first world affected and found the world had gone into a panic. To add to the confusion there was a mission person. A new trainer had vanished in the confusion. Each world after that they found the same thing had happened. With each attack on the worlds, a portal had opened up and sucked in one trainer all new trainers. Chime found it hard to believe this wasn’t on purpose.
    Chime and his partner Brettles made their way back to the halfway station between time and space and began tracking the small wormholes. They find something odd. Each wormhole had pulled a new trainer at the moment they had just left for their journey and they were all being transported to the same world at the same time.
    It is important to remember the date it started because today is March 6th in your world. You are completely unaware of the events unfolding through time and space because today was supposed to be the first day of your pokemon journey. No sooner had you collected your first pokemon and started on your path that the lights in your world seemingly vanished. In the darkness, a bright light appeared a few feet away. You moved towards that light instinctively only trying to get a closer view. For a moment you see through the light and see what looks like a small town on a bright beautiful day. You take one more step towards it and without warning, you are pulled through the wormhole and find yourself and your partner in a completely different place. To add to the confusion you find that you are not the only one to come through one of these wormholes. You can see others nearby who seemingly appear out of thin air and are dropped in the grass.

Losing his partner Frost and all his pokemon partners crushed him. Lucian is defined by all that he has lost.

    The Sign-Up form is under the spoiler tag. When filling out the Sign-Up form it is important to remember the character you pick will be the character you use in the game. Below are a couple of other things to keep in mind.

    Things to Remember
    *Your character must be between 13-18
    *Your character can not be the pokemon league champion.
    *You must pick a region (Not Sinnoh) to be where your character comes from. Please remember this region when writing a back story.
    *No characters will be from the current world. I prefer that none are from Sinnoh in general however if you feel very strongly about it please let me know.
    *No super powered characters, you can not be an expert battler as that would not fit in with the story. Remember you are a starting trainer.
    *You can have an npc that tags along either yourself or a friend who is also playing if you get it approved.

    Story Version: Diamond

    Name: Sophie Reed

    Age: 15 (DOB 26/02/2011)

    Gender: Female

    Appearance: Sophie stands at 5’5”, with a slim, but slightly muscled figure, due to the training her father put her through. Her blonde hair falls a little below her shoulders, and is usually either down or tied in a ponytail when she needs to concentrate. Her face is lightly freckled, and, seeming almost contrary to her appearance are her piercing green eyes.

    Her usual attire consists of a pair of jeans, with a fairly standard, colored blouse, and a warm jacket or coat over the top. Bonus points if the jacket has a hood

    Height/Weight: As above.

    Personality: Sophie takes after her father with regards to his temper and how stubborn he can be. However, unlike her father she has a surprisingly quick wit, and is much smarter than he was at her age.

    Sophie has a strong sense of justice, and hates it when people aren’t fair or just to one another. She is very empathetic, and tries to treat people the way she wants to be treated. She is very quick to try and defend someone, but also quick to verbally tear into the person she is defending them from.

    Personal Traits that describe your character: Smart, Quick Witted, Fiery, Compassionate.

    Backstory:
    1. Family:

    -Jacob Reed (Father) (DOB 27/09/1990, age 36). Sophie has a strained relationship with Jacob. Whilst Jacob loves her more than anything, he struggles to show it. Because of what he saw during the Hoenn Crisis, he has trained her since she was young in how to defend herself, and how to battle Pokemon, though refuses to tell her specifically what happened to him, since the only way she will believe him is for Gwaine to show her his memories, and he thinks she is too young to see what actually happened. Sophie has no idea that Jacob is actually from a different world, or the reason why he is in this one. All she knows is that when Jacob was close to her age, he went through something scaring. Sophie tries to make things work with him, as does Jacob, but they inevitably end up having a disagreement that gets blown out of proportion.
    -Phoebe Reed (Mother)(DOB 24/04/1990, age 36). Sophie gets along with her mother a little easier than her father, partially due to Phoebe being much less stubborn than Jacob. When Sophie and Phoebe disagree they are much more likely to talk it out civilly and come to an agreement or compromise, as opposed to both telling and refusing to budge like her and Jacob do. Phoebe tends to act as a mediator between Jacob and Sophie. Whilst Phoebe knows what Jacob is hiding from Sophie, she refuses to tell her, saying that it isn't her place to tell and that Jacob will tell her when she is ready to hear it.
    -Laura Fisher (Aunt) (DOB 16/06/1994, Age 32). Whilst Jacob has other siblings (Jamie and Melody), he is closest with Laura because of both being from another world (though Sophie doesn’t know this), and because of this, Laura visited Jacob in Johto a lot more than Jamie or Melody, resulting in Sophie becoming quite close with her aunt. Short of Sophie herself, Laura is the person who is most likely to go toe to toe with Jacob with disagreements, and doesn’t pull punches. Whilst Laura respects overall Jacob’s decision to keep Sophie in the dark until she is old enough, she feels like Sophie deserves to know to a degree what happened to her dad, so has told her very vaguely what has happened. However she has intentionally kept it quiet, as, like Phoebe says, it isn’t her place to tell. However even then, Sophie is close to Laura, and looks up to her greatly.
    -Gwaine (Jacob’s Gallade). Gwaine is Jacob’s most trusted Pokemon, however is also fairly close to Sophie. When Jacob and Phoebe couldn’t find a babysitter Gwaine usually looked after Sophie. Out of all of Jacob’s Pokemon, Gwaine is out and about the most, so Sophie has grown up with him in the house practically all the time, and sees him almost as an older brother. Gwaine is loyal to Jacob, and refuses to tell Sophie about his past. However he also loves Sophie and Phoebe, and would kill anybody who tried to hurt them.

    2. Pokemon experience:
    Sophie has grown up with her dad’s Pokemon around her, so is no stranger to Pokemon and training them. She has been taught about type matchups and battling strategy since she was young as part of her training, and has had practise battles with Jacob using his Pokemon, however they are all expertly trained Pokemon, and she have never had her own. Whilst she may know how to battle with Jacob’s Pokemon, battling with her own will be entirely different.

    3. Past experience that has defined your character:
    Jacob and Phoebe’s primary source of income is prize money from Pokemon tournaments. Whilst Jacob doesn’t have a day job, a couple of months a year, he will leave home and tour Johto, or possibly even Hoenn, participating in tournaments and usually winning. When Sophie was twelve, her and Jacob got into a fight, as Sophie didn’t want to do her training of a Saturday morning, and Jacob refused to tell her why she had to do it. Jacob had to leave to attend tournaments, so the fight was left unresolved. Laura came to visit, and found out from Sophie what had happened.

    Laura decided to take Sophie to the tournament Jacob was participating in, and let her see her dad battle. Whilst Sophie had seen him train, she had never seen him battle at 100% and was in awe seeing this. On the way back home, she asked Laura how Jacob became such a good battler. Laura’s response shocked Sophie, and opened her eyes slightly to why he was so harsh on her.

    “He battles like his life depends on it, because for a long time, it did.”

    This was the closest thing to the truth about her dad Sophie had heard. When Jacob found out what Laura had done, he lost the plot, however they soon made amends. Sophie has learnt a little more about her dad’s past, mostly from Laura, but is still in the dark about the truth behind him.

    4. Special Talents:

    Nothing overly impressive. Understands a lot of battling theory from being taught by her dad, however lacks experience with her own Pokemon. Also capable of defending herself.

    Special Pokemon: Celebi. However this won’t happen in the story. More so for the sake of back story and post-endgame.

    Personal Goals: To make her own way, separate from her Dad. To not need him, and to be better than him.

    Pet Peeves: Hypocrisy, injustice and bulls***.

    Region: Johto

    Favorite Pokemon: Gallade (Due to having such a close bond with Gwaine)

    Favorite Type: Fire.

    What starter Pokemon: Piplup

    Drawing or Writing: Writing, but I can draw if I must…

    Contest Starter: Cyndaquil.

    Thanks for considering it. The new game is being crafted to give players more freedom and not feel pressured at all. Since its more of an open world feel and not a Story Mod pushing the game forward players who are more casual should be fine :)

    Question.

    Any doubts if I make my character's "#4 Special Talents" consist of being a Psychic, similar to one of the gym trainers in Saffron City Gym? I'm thinking of trying something new and rolling a character that's more apt to use psychic types and that kind of thing, but if there's a problem with this, I'll rethink things over.

    Hello there! Saw the banner ad up top and was intrigued enough to read the welcome blurb. I’d love to experience a more free-form, collaborative telling of the game, and had some questions to make sure I got the idea. I’m new to freeform RP (almost joined one for PXFire but got too busy) so I don’t know what to expect, or what range is allowed. To that end – some questions!

    Character:
    Story version Diamond/Pearl – will this have any real effects on the experience?
    Backstory – how wide from the character is expected – relatives, ancestors, or just the past few years of their life and maybe a few key players in it?
    Special talents – how powerful and/or common are they capped at? The example character has a subconscious link to Water type Pokemon, which seems relatively minor but common. Would the ability to understand the speech of Legendary/Mythical Pokemon be too overpowered, or would it never come up?
    Special Pokemon – Platinum is where I got back into the Pokemon franchise and I’ve always had a real fondness for Darkrai, would that be acceptable? Example character has two Legends here, but I am not sure if those came about through prior incarnations.
    Contest starter – this seems to imply a second starter can be picked, is that going to be part of the character’s main team or is it for some separate events/side story?
    Drawing or Writing – I really enjoy writing, and am just getting into drawing. Are the events exclusive (a drawing path and a writing path) or would I be able to dabble in both of them?

    Gameplay:
    Looking at the posts, I’m not sure if there’s one missing with the basic mechanics of GCEA. As a complete newbie I don’t know how any of it works – if you can point me to a ‘getting started’ post I passed by it’d be greatly appreciated and may answer the rest of these questions.
    From the location threads it looks like navigation will be pretty straightforward, but that’s as much as I can tell. Will people be chasing badges and working towards beating the Pokemon League?
    Do the Pokemon have XP and levels to keep track of? How about their movesets, is it locked to 4 at a time or are they all available?
    Items, prize money, inventory – do the participants have to battle NPCs for money or is it accrued some other way? How does PvP work or is it disabled?

    Thank you for your time!

    When considering powers we always ask for the player to tell us at his strongest what the powers will do ?
    For example rose in bb is blind and she see through the eyes of her psychic partner. Her powers while there are limited for the most part to her partner. Her ability is only strong enough because of the boost.

    So what are you hoping to do with it ?

    Items, prize money, inventory – do the participants have to battle NPCs for money or is it accrued some other way? How does PvP work or is it disabled?

    Thank you for your time!
    First off, thank you for posting your question. GCEA is by no means a traditional roleplay. It is more of a story game and responses are much shorter normally.
    Gcea does have a wonderful how to guide but because this new version is different from the previous integrations. We are currently working on an updating how to battle section which is why the how to guide is not up.

    But back to your questions.
    1. The game version you pick will affect some of the story but mainly what pokemom appear. There will also be mini events that are only for certain versions. This is to mix it up a little.

    2. Backstory- should just be a general story of where your character comes from and some of their motivations. Normally people will include important family of friends but it's just to help get an idea or the character. In the backstory players also help out the mods because the unique stuff added helps us shape your journey.
    3. Powers- we like the characters to have very minor powers something helpful to their story. Powers that give the player over the villains or fellow players are normally not allowed. As far as the specific power you mentioned. In gcea legends appear throughout the story. The legends speak every language so they communicate with the players. Also gcea pulls from the manga and the cartoon. The legendary pokemon take human form at points.

    4. Special pokemon. Normally that section is for pokemon that played a roll in the backstory in some meaningful way. As I said to Neo above a character in blue has a pokemon that helps her see. In the past pokemom that trainer grew up with or even saved their life were added in this section. We put that in there to give people freedom and because all of us have pokemon wed love to have as partners.

    As for Lucian in the example. He formed a bond with Kyogre during the later half of the story. Normally every trainer that makes it through the first half will connect with a legendary. Its not something they start out with it's something that we add in if a player requests to get to have his or her character interact with that legend. Lucian is from the hoenn storyline that just finished. All four of the main characters had a legendary partner at one point in the story.

    5.contest starter -the backstory for this version is that all the players are pulled through wormholes. This players come from different worlds and regions. So the writing submission is a way for a player to pick up a starter from the region their character comes from. The pokemon will be apart of the main story and be usable in the battles.

    6. Normally every gcea event has two ways to enter. Some people prefer drawing, others writing. So you can enter either and get the unlockable item. The reason the contest starter is a writing event is because it helps us to understand the character more and it gives you guys a base to work off of.

    7. As instated at the top we are working on updating the how to gcea thread hopefully we can get that up in the next two days.

    8. The set up of the threads does lead to gyms and the league but there is a story and mini missions that in some ways will overshadow the league. In previous versions only one person has beat the league. The plot itself normally becomes so big the characters are saving the world. However there of course will be the option to battle the league.

    8. Pokemon xp- pokemon do level up and that works a couple of ways. The main way to do it is to use points to level up a pokemon. However we do have rare candy that does give the pokemon a level. For the sake of the game people normally slowly level up their main team as they play through. This gives it a more naturally feel.
    As far as moves. Gcea cuts down to pokemon in battles as two basic things. Evolution and typing. Moves dont play a part in the battles. Now many of us do use then when describing the battle or for other plot points.

    9. Gcea is a posting game. So by posting you can earn points. You get points through a variety of ways. Including keeping a journey or sketchpad which can earn you points. Players also earn points from battles with npcs in the game.

    10. Pvp is something we would really love to have but as of now it wouldn't work outside of story battle. In the past we have done it and the way it works is one player does the match as if the other is an npc. As you can guess its normally one sided as the person who sets it up normally wins.

    Hopefully that helps answer some of your questions

    Story Version: Diamond

    Name: Matthias Grand

    Age: 16

    Gender: Male

    Appearance: Mathias is 5' 7, and very thin. He looks almost malnourished, but has a wiry strength to him. He has short, bright blonde hair a little shaggy and unkempt. HHe has a plain looking face, no real beauty to be found, except in his peircing blue eyes.

    He likes to wear black. Black pants black T-shirt and a black hoodie.

    Height/Weight: As above.

    Personality: Matthias doesn't trust easily. He has seen the dark side of too many people and just assumes that they will eventually show their true colours and betray him.

    He protects himself from rejection by not seeking acceptance in the first place. He always has an exit plan, (for himself at least). If he needs to cut and run, he will. He believes in taking whatever he needs from where-ever and who ever he finds it. The world never did him any favours, so he owes nothing to anybody.

    Personal Traits that describe your character: Judgemental, Secretive, Protective, Greedy.

    Backstory:
    1. Family:

    -(Mother) Mathilda Grand: Mum tried her best to raise her kids right, but with five of the the little terrors running around, it wasn't easy. She worked as a nurse at the local Pokemon center. She is kind and compassionate and one of the few people that Matthias feels guilty about letting down.
    -(Father) Gregory Grand: Dad worked as a laborer, but never made a lot of money. He sacrificed a lot for his family and always felt that he had let his wife and kids down. He now has to accept the fact that his oldest son is more successful than he is which is a blow to his ego.
    -(oldest Brother) Reginald Grand: Pokemon expert and second in command at the local Pokemon gym, looking to take over when the current gym leader retires. Very driven and family oriented. Reginald is the 'Golden child' of the family. The one who will bring them from the dirt to glory.
    -(2nd born Sister) Amelia Grand: After a youth running around and being a hooligan, including joining a biker gang, Amelia has settled down and joined the local Police force. She enforces the law fairly and fearlessly, although she has on occasion used her authority to pull Matthias out of a sticky legal situation. Amelia is Matthias' favorite person.
    -(3rd born) Matthias Grand
    -(4th born brother) Billy Grand: 13 year old Pokemon prodigy, already out on his Pokemon journey. Probably going to be a super-success, much to Matthias' annoyance.
    -(5th born brother) Harry Grand: 10 year old pain in the neck, always in trouble at school for trying out some of the stories that Matthias told him. Idolizes Matthias and tries to copy his bad-boy demeanor.
    2. Pokemon experience:
    Helping Mum with injured Pokemon. Watching his annoying brothers with their amazing Pokemon battling skills.

    3. Past experience that has defined your character:
    When Matthias was ten years old he didn't have enough to eat. His family could barely afford two meals a day. One day when Matthias was walking through the local market he saw some delicious fresh bread sitting on a stall. He waited for the stall owner to look away and then grabbed a loaf and hid it under his jacket. He walked away and realized that no-one had seen him. he ate the bread and came to a new realization. If the rules wouldn't feed him, then the rules were not necessary. He would get whatever he needed, however he could. Since that day Matthias has developed a knack for taking things that don't belong to him.
    Matthias has had a few run ins with the law, but is usually able to talk his way out of a bad situation.
