End Run | Plot

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 5, 2011, 5:56 AM
.....

160 years before the events of Pokémon as we know the today, the regions were caught in the web of ever rising conflict...

Rival nations, Johto and Kanto, have been competing for centuries. At times the tensions have risen to the waging of wars between them.  Bad economics, unscrupulous trade, spreading disease, and idea theft has been enough to spark high tensions between these two.

Recently, an unknown Pokémon (Mew) has disabled all the automated weaponry on both sides. (However machines are still usable, such as cars.) Being stranded without weapons, both countries have seen a lull in war.  It has been 30 years since the last all-out war, but there is still enough mistrust within living generations to spark the fire. Moreover, the independent actions of occasional guerrilla fighter skirmishes keep tensions high.

In fear of their neighbouring country, Johto sought out a new form of protection: Pokémon.

Up until now, people lived in fear of Pokémon. They were treated like monsters. But since the invention of the Pokéball from Johto, Pokémon can now be tamed. With this they now have a new method to fight.  And each side is willing to toss aside old fears to continue the battle.  

Although armies were being trained, neither side was willing to make the first move. This changed when an anonymous attack was shot out. This was all that was needed to spark the enemy country's distrust, and thus they were plunged back into a new age of war.

It it now your duty to choose to fight for Kanto or Johto, and build up your pokémon army. Choose a side and your faction (navy, air force or army) and prepare for the war of the century.

......
In short:
End Run a strategy based OCT, where you will be given a set of tasks to fulfill. It won't be the traditional '1 on 1' that pokémon has yielded prior (unless part of your strategy or criteria is to have a 1 on 1 battle.)
It is heavily plot based, building on what contestants do in their rounds.
.....

Now what?
• Read the FAQ/Rules
• Choose a side, get your app
• Get your boots on and prepare for war!

OCT stands for Original Character Tournament. In short, people pit their OCs against others in rounds to determine a winner with the best art, story, presentation, etc. :)

How come the pokemon list also includes other regions such as Sinnoh? Does that mean players can have Sinnoh pokemon?

Because the military are craft folk, and have either stolen or breed the pokemon of other regions in their own.

That and it would be limiting to pick pokemon from your region on top of the other rules instated.

Eh, the competition is close to just the people still in the competition, but you can always join the side events as an NPC.

Also a lot of people have had fun participating in tumblr with their NPCs as well!

somehow itīs wierd. With no word you say directly, that there are no guns. You only say they have no MGs. And your group-picture show a soldier of the Wehrmacht with a MG-34, but nobody use guns.

I always had a good laugh at that. We were going to have a friend make us a new icon months ago, but it never happened.

But seems you are the only one who's picked up the gun. Good eyes.

I thouht about the no-gun-rule. May I know a way, how the force get guns but still need the Pokemons. I mean, that the forces fight only with knives and "animal" with can run off in dangerous situations is a bit weird. How about the idea, that the forces get guns, but not really good guns. Not precisely, slowly reload, low firepower or to heavy to carry alone. And the reason why they get the guns now is, that Mew also crushed a few parts of the defense industry.

It's a nice thought, but the OCT is almost half finished. At this point it is to late to change the concept of the OCT. Thank you for the suggestion though.

I've got another question, I've seen a question about pure literature entries.

But I was wondering more about the part where you say you can add some lit to your piece, how much literature is allowed? It terms of words 100, 200, 300, etc?

Or is there no limit so long as the written story is in the artist comment is is simply an extra bonus that helps explain the piece in more detail, but is not actually judged?

TheTimePolice Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
For the actual contest entries, I do believe we said in the flash 500 word limit per entry. However keep in mind we are mostly judging the illustration, and the writing is there to support the illustration.

Hmm, I must have had my eyes closed when reading the flash. >>
Thank you for clearing that up for me, now all I have to do is figure out what to write to help accompany my illustrations....

So; no more applications are allowed? Meaning if I discovered the group recently, I cannot create an application and participate?

And is it possible to try and participate in round two, with higher cut rates?

This looks very interesting. I've never been in an OCT before, so may I ask how time-consuming this might be? I'm eager to participate - I'm just not sure I'll have the time. Excuse me if this is a stupid question, haha.

TheTimePolice Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
The time commitment will primarily depend on yourself. I've seen OCTs where many have been able to skate to the near top of the OCT with the bare minimum, and then pull out all the stops at the end. Others make every entry a masterpiece.

You can expect to be working on a round every 1-2 months, so this will be a year round project. However OCTS are for a grander purpose other then capitalizing your time, they provide valuable experience and test your abilities to work under deadlines. There is of course, the social aspect of it too.

All in all, you put in what you want out of it. The more time you put into your entries, the more you will gain back.

I have to say, from what i have read so far, this is a unique pokemon battle that i never that would have come true.

A POKEMON WAR.

That it self is amazing. But its not like the war in the Lucario movie. And in this war is when they first STARTED to catch pokemon? You are writing history man.

I wanna join so bad :,<
