Let's make this place aliiive.
This RP thing is gonna be run by me and LightningFast, who'll post sometime soon with some stuff. We're not opening signups yet, but it couldn't be longer than 1 or 2 days until they do. So, dive into the plot already!
We call it Aeria. This place, country, region, whatever you call it. You could look down at it from the skies, and you would see 7 islands. One large one surrounded by 6 others with huge bridges, half hour drives in a car, stretching between them. Each contains a city and a surrounding area. It all seems like a serene, established place. But only if you're a thousand miles in the air, looking down. You'd be lucky to be that far away. A civil war will break out between a few citizens and government.
The government is highly skilled and highly regarded. Cities are kept under heavy security at all times as so to prevent anyone from getting anywhere they ought not to be. The cities are all rather large, so most don't mind. The capital keeps everything under control. But the people don't like each other. The government is advertised as highly democratic, run by the citizens. Everything needed to be decided by government is done by vote. Everyone votes, and it's highly private as to what you vote for. You can't tell anyone. The votes are all gathered at the capital. They are tampered as so to meet the needs of a singular person who actually has a tight fist around the country.
The votes are tampered, laws are passed that were "suggested by the citizens," and every day, it seems that the region gets worse. People trust the people that keep everything running and hate each other for voting badly when they didn't. They believe in the people that are ruining their lives and they hate those who, if they work together, could fix it.
Some people realize this. They break away from communities, train Pokémon to fight. They turn to the rebels who plan to uprise, make the people understand what's wrong and fix the situation they are put in. It is called Team Nighthawk. But the rest of the people don't realize where the problems are coming from. They think that if the Nighthawks ascend into power things will only get worse. Everyone is against them.
Most people can't do anything for laws against owning Pokémon or don't want to because they are brainwashed by the conditions placed by the Tyrant. Others work alone, hired assassins or freelance travelers. They understand things are odd, they might even know exactly what the problem is, but they haven't done anything to fix it, or don't want to put a target on themselves by joining the Nighthawks.
It's up to you what methods are employed to fix it. What will you do?
