That's correct, as the title of this thread states, sign-ups are still open! I welcome new players.
Name: Aerros, Ace of the Skies
Age: Equivalent to the human 16
Sexuality: Bisexual (sorta, will be expanded on in the RP, but Aerros is not, let's say 100% comfortable in this)
Ability: Aerros' reputation precedes him. When facing Aerros, the Pressure is certainly on!
Appearance: Nothing biologically speaking, but Aerros is never seen without his Silver Bow tied to his neck, always facing his left shoulder
Personality: Aerros is vain and proud, holding himself to being nothing but the very best, taking falls and failures hard. He can make friends, but he considers it an honour to them if he is their friend.
History: Aerros was always a little daddy's boy. Aerrow, his father was known as an old ace of the skies, and trained under his father's wing since he was young. Until his 13th birthday, he hunted with his father and mother, always on the right of their arrow formation and when his thirteenth birthday came... When his father told him something he wasn't expecting, as at such a young age, he was told he was ready to take up his father's mantle and given his father's Silver Bow. To this day, he has kept his mantle with authority and has never lost to any other aerial opponent.
Other: Wild Pokémon. I hope we don't mind my char having a reputation

I may look like an idiot, I may sound like an idiot, but don't let that fool you; I really am an idiot.
Hey, everyone. May I join in? If I do, this will be my first RP. So if I'm accepted and I start generally acting stupid in the game, just let me know and I'll stop.
And with that downer of an introduction, I guess I should tell you about my character?
Name: Erika Smith
Age: 14-15 years old.
Ability: Pretty good at digging (for a bird), does know a lot about Archen and Archeops abilities and behaviour, though this knowledge might not be that helpful in practice. Due to Archen's natural ability, Defeatist, she will instinctively tend to panic and try to run away if her body gets too badly damaged in battle, even more so than she would as a human.
Human Appearance: Average hight, brown hair, tanned skin. Tended to wear a cap to keep the sun out of her eyes.
Pokemon Appearance: Nothing too noteworthy to set her apart from any other Archen.
Personality: Erika is the sort of person who dreams of what it would be like to be other animals (guess she kind of got her wish), and is often lost in thought. She also can often be pretty analytic about her surroundings. Until, that is, she tries to talk to someone, in which case she can be overly self conscious. Usually, though, she will genuinely try to be friendly if spoken to. She's the sort to try to keep calm when faced with danger, and think of a way out, or wait until it passes. As a human, she enjoyed being outside, and relished the times when snow fell around her home, as it tended to happen suddenly, and made a nice contrast to the usual heat of the desert.
Human History: Her parents work for a breeding center for endangered and revived fossil Pokemon, out in the desert of a PokeAmerican region. She spent some time there, and liked taking care of said Pokemon, especially the Archen and Archeops, though she would not be allowed to take any of them with her on a journey to become a Pokemon trainer, which was something she somewhat wanted to do. Outside of that, she had a pretty normal life, until she was turned into a Pokemon.
Pokemon History: She, and her parents own a guild (probably not going to be mentioned in the story) for teaching the local language (PokeLanguage?) and customs to foreign Pokemon. She is definitely not unloved by her parents, but she is often treated as kind of an apprentice, and has the duty of cleaning the place and sometimes gathering food, as well as trying to interact with student Pokemon.
Theme Song: Not sure. I haven't really come up with a good one yet.
Other: Nothing really. Just sorry if this was a bit awkward to read, since I went back at times to tweak my wording a bit or to add details, so there might have been a bit of a butterfly effect thing going on, and I think I may have tried to crank out too much at once, anyway.
Well, here goes. *Makes hitting the Submit button look like an exhausting feat*
@Ramphorynchoid; Nice! Accepted. Currently in the RP we're settling down for the night just to the west of a large volcano called Mt. Magma, so you could pop in now or in the middle of the night or in the morning or whatever I don't care.
Just so long as it ends up with you coming in, I'm fine with it! PMD: True Strength - Start Up
All right, cool! I'll scout out tomorrow (IRL) to see where I can jump in.
Well, this is the character from Dylan's past that I've been talking about. I put the part of her history involving Dylan in spoiler tags because... well, to be honest, I don't know why. Perhaps the story might be told in the RP? Or maybe it's more of a warning in case someone wants to find out their past in the RP and not here? Idk. Anyway, here it is.
Appearance: A regular Ampharos with a snow-white bandana around her neck. -Drawing is in progress-
Personality: In terms of how she interacts with others, she is the polar opposite of Dylan. She is outgoing and loves people. She isn't afraid to speak her mind and she isn't afraid to fight if need be. Other than that, however, she is fairly similar to Dylan. She is friendly with a warm and caring personality. She tries to make her friends happy if they are sad as well. Some of her own morals have rubbed off on Dylan.
As far as her own past goes, she was born into a family of merchants, so the art of trading was in her blood. This could explain why her parents let her loose at a younger age. After Dylan and her parted ways, she wandered the world as any merchant would, and eventually evolved into the Ampharos she is now since she isn't afraid to defend herself.
Theme Song: The hardest part of any SU. I'll look for one.
Other: As I stated above, I'm currently in the process of drawing her out as well. This one will look less like a test and more legit.
Could I ask something? The world that this is set in, is it the PMD 'guilds & outlaws' type thing, or the 'pokemon-are-animals-living-in-grass-and-stuff' style setup? I'm assuming it's the first one, but I figured I should check before I post anything up.
There'll probably be a nice graphic here eventually...
May I reserve a spot please? If so, I'd like to reserve Dragonair.
Ability: Marvel Scale
Human Appearance: He had white spiky hair that parts in the middle, he also had two red beads hanging off the ends of his hair. He had turquoise eyes, and a red pendant his mother gave him before she died. He wore a white turtleneck sweater, black tennis shoes, and black pants.
Pokemon Appearance: He has white scales and a black under-belly. He has turquoise eyes, and black wings sprouting from the top of his head. A black horn is also on his forehead, and he has two black spheres on his tail, and one black sphere under his chin.
Personality: He is very meek and stoic. He is rarely ever angered and loves to help. Sometimes his over-willingness seems to cause him to become gullible.
Human History: Cyan was born in Castelia then moved to Icirrus. He lived with his mom and dad until his mom died. His father abandoned him at age 6, and he has been living with an old relative in Anville Town. Honestly, he really doesn't really know if that is a relative of his or not, but he called him Gramps regardless. He didn't remember his parents, all he knew was he had a grandpa; but seeing snow always reminds him of his mother and him in Icirrus, so he clutches his pendant.
Pokemon History: Cyan was first hatched in a stone crevasse, underwater. His Mother (a Dragonair) and his Father (a Dragonite) raised him until his mother died. His father abandoned him and left him stranded in a rock in the middle of the ocean. He was picked up by an old Milotic who taught him to slither on land. He refers to this Milotic as Gramps. He now lives partially on land and in the sea.
Theme Song: Laurence by Feint.
Other: I might draw a little sprite for him. Is there anything I missed?

@Swordie; Closer to the first one. The pokemon are civilized, there are buildings and all that stuff. But the RP doesn't revolve around guilds and outlaws, although the original players did spend a short time at the guild before they set off to go find out who they are and find Arceus' plates and defeat Darkrai (it was a plot revealed inside the RP). But yeah, civilized, not living-in-the-grass stuff. Unless they want to -_-
@Aerodine; Accepted! Nope, you're not missing anything. Pop in whenever, it's currently morning-ish in the RP. We just woke up in a rocky area relatively near to a volcano called Mt. Magma that we just visited.
Could someone give me like a brief synopsis of what's going on so far. Not 10 paragraphs long, but a couple sentences. I wouldn't want to step on anyone's toes or mess-up the story line.
@Aerodine; Well, I don't really think you would end up messing with the storyline;I believe xelda's got a pretty good handle on things. Just play by the rules and you should be fine. In any case, here's the summary.
Darkrai is planning to rise again and wreak havoc. The job we've been given is to collect all the plates so we could resurrect Arceus. We currently hold two plates, and are headed off for the third. Right now, we're still in the Mt. Magma area and eventually will start heading off for the third plate.
I hope the summary helps somewhat.
Also, if you have any other questions, you could post them here instead of in this thread.

Gender: Male or Female or Genderless. Female
Ability: Shadow Ball
Human Appearance: May had long dark hair and brown eyes. She wore allot of black and people thought she was a goth even though she really wasn't she just likes the color black. She was tall and that really scared mostly everyone away from her. She had been thinking or wearing less frighting stuff before she turned into a pokemon.
Pokemon Appearance: She's looks like a normal Poochyena.
Personality: Even though May comes across sort of aggressively at times she really means well. It seems when she makes friends she makes them for good and trys to protect them even if they don't want it. She can be rather flirtatious at times and its hard to avoid her then to. All in all she's very persistent. May also hates the snow... (See what I did there)
Human History: Her father left the house to marry another woman. She and her mother were heartbroken. May started hanging out at her friend Chris's house. He sort of helped her cope.
Pokemon History: Everything was fine in May's life until her father got killed by a pack of Manectric... This time Chris wasn't there to help her.
Theme Song: At the bottom of the night from Chromo Trigger
Other: Not that I can think of...
Human Appearance: Chris wore whatever he could find in general as doesn't care to much about what he wears. He has blue eyes and had brown hair that was pretty short. He also yawned allot which people thought that meant he was tired but really he was just bored.
Pokemon Appearance: ...
Personality: Chris gets bored easily and is always looking for something else to do. He try's to make the things that he has to do more fun. The cold weather such as snow is usually fun to him. Sometimes when he has allot of time on his hands he likes to help people which might be why he helped May.
Human History: Chris spent allot of his time just being good at math and helping some of the kids in his class with it. Once he saw how depressed May seemed he decided to befriend her.
Pokemon History: Chris was good at running and when other pokemon attacked him he attacked them back. It seemed this time though May wasn't there for him to befriend.
Theme Song: -_-
I hope Houndour isn't taken... I can always change it again though...
