Intro Movie



End Run - Round 3 by Minister-of-Defense

________________________________

INTRODUCTION



"The tides of the war have changed.

The first battle has passed, and out of the ashes Kanto has risen as the victor. Now the violence has found itself on the shores of Johto, and Kanto has taken the heart of the other region--Ecruteak is now in red hands. With the technology from Unova, it now seems impossible for Kanto to lose their edge.   The technology of Unova--the Electromagnetic Pulse machine, or EMP--is set to emit a pulse that could lock Johto pokeballs shut. Since Johto and Kanto pokeballs are different models, Kanto pokeballs would still be fully functional.  Without access to most of their pokemon, Johto's outlook is very bleak...

However, dissonance echoes beneath the waves of the war, and a new group has stepped into the light out of the shadows.

The technology so hard fought and won has fallen into the hands of rogues. His voice, the voice of mystery, sends out a message across the land to announce the rise of the rebels. The technology of Unova--the Electromagnetic Pulse machine--that Kanto had settled upon the Brass Tower as the crown of their victory, now rests in the hacker's hands. Pokeballs shut, down, and all of the precious balls of the army are locked down. Everyone is left with only one Pokemon.

And in this moment of confusion and surprise, Kanto's darling general turns her sights to a new future with pokemon, and a new colour to call her own--Brigadier General Jane Delancy announces her affiliation with this ragtag group. She is not alone--the enigma of Kanto's minister too has turned her back from her country to the new mission and calling. For those of you who are doubting, who are wondering if this is right--the minister’s voice calls out to you and only you because of your uncertainty (it rattles and echoes in your mind, a telepathic siren's call)... Join Jane, Liz, herself--they will provide you new monsters to help you end this war and sabotage both Johto and Kanto...

It is not the rules of the game that have changed, but the game itself."






ARTIST REQUIREMENTS



Kanto requirements:
:bulletred:*Attack Rogues*
:bulletred:*Attack Johto forces*
:bulletred:*Only the use of one pokemon in this round. This is the pokemon your character had out before the EMP came into effect*
-Navy: Attack Ecruteak from the river and use amphibious force.
-Airforce: Attack Ecruteak City to support the Navy, or assist the Army in sweeping the Tower.
-Army: Claim the tower from both Johto troops and the rogues.

Johto Requirements:
:bulletblue:*Defend Ecutreck*
:bulletblue:*Attack Rogues*
:bulletblue:*Only the use of one pokemon in this round. This is the pokemon your character had out before the EMP came into effect*
- Navy: A river runs through Ecruteak, however forces will be amphibious.
- Airforce: Defend Ecruteak from the skies, and punt those Kanto pigeons away from your lovely tower.
- Army: Protect the Tower from Kanto, while trying to gain original control over it from the Rogues.

Rogue Requirements:
:bulletgreen:*Defend Selves/Tower and retrieve as much equipment as possible, particularly of the EMP*
:bulletgreen:* Rogues can be sabotaging equipment, stealing pokemon, commandeering equipment. They are to prove themselves to the Rogue leaders of their alliance*
:bulletgreen: :star: *Rogues try not to kill or use deadly force.  It rather goes against their ideals and prerogative.*
:bulletgreen: :star: *Rogues cannot take prisoners, because they have nowhere to put them!*
:bulletgreen:*Show character development/reasoning for defecting*
:bulletgreen:*Only the use of one pokemon in this round plus a pokemon provided by the Rogue generals.* So yes, you can have 4 Pokemon now if you join the rogues!
- Benefits for joining the Rogues
   - Pokemon from list can be used in addition to the one pokemon your soldier has out (aka the 4th Pokemon you can get must be one from the list)
   -Future Pokemon: tinyurl.com/cr4lu6z

:bulletgreen: :star: Additional Set-up Information for Rogues :star:
:bulletgreen: :star: When Jane makes her speech, your characters make the decision whether or not to join.  Then, others that she’d already gathered into her underground movement would be stating the goal/mission to take the EMP technology without killing people from either side.  None of your characters can be rogue before Jane makes her announcement.
:bulletgreen: :star: You get your new pokemon from Rogue Generals or nameless NPC Rouges (you can make them look however you want) that are already part of the underground movement.  They are giving out the store of extra pokemon Jane’s been amassing/training based on telepathic feedback from one very powerful psychic pokemon.  Hidden away, that psychic pokemon can tell if your character really wants to be Rogue or not.    These pokemon were brought up being cared for nicely by humans, believe in the cause for pokemon-human friendship, and will take orders readily.

FAQ:


• I can't do this alone! Do I need to team up? Can I have a commanding officer?
- There is no doubt this round is wrapped in chaos. You are welcome to team up again, or have Malcom, James or another commanding officer to give your character instructions. In addition the Brigadier factions will be on the field, and can provide direction.

• Are the pokemon on that list exclusive to the Rogues?
- All pokemon will become available to everyone at some point. However rogues get first dibs this time around.

• How much of this must I show in my entry?
- You can start anywhere in the entry, so long as it shows your character’s participation in the battle at some point.

• What is the new page/panel limit?
- There will be no limit. However we encourage people to monitor their time closely if planned to do a larger entry.

• What mediums can I use?
- This is open to all artistic media. If you are using your artist comments to explain illustrations, please keep it under 500 words.

• What is the aftermath of this round?
- You are welcome to illustrate the ending of the round, or leave it undecided.

• Can my character be taken as a POW?
- Yes, this can be the outcome of your entry.

• Can the tower be destroyed in my entry?
- The outcome of the tower is up to you.

• How large is the Rogue party?
The rogue party is the smallest, with member of mixed experience. Inside Ecruteck there is 50 members.

:star: • Can Rogues take prisoners?  If I'm a Rogue, can I take another character prisoner?  If I'm Kanto or Johto, can I become a prisoner or a Rouge?
-No! The Rogues have no facilities for P.O.W.s!  It would be foolish to take prisoners.   Rogues are concentrated on moving quickly.

• How large are Johto’s forces at Ecruteak?
A majority of Johto’s forces are army forces, with a few factions of Navy and Airforce. There are about 20,000 members.

• How large are Kanto’s forces at Ecruteak?
A majority of Kanto’s forces are army forces, with a few factions of Navy and Airforce. There are about 30,000 members.

• How long does this battle take place?
- This can be up to you. The battle will last at least a day.

•Can I make a Rogue NPC?
- Yes! However there are no strict factions (Navy, Airforce, Army) so their role is up to you. Please use the black app form for NPC apps as always!

:star: •If my character did not pass the previous rounds, can I re-enter the contest by joining the Rogues?
-No! That wouldn't be fair!

:star: •If my character has been an NPC all along, does making them into a Rogue put me in the main contest?
-Nope again!  

:star: • Does my Rogue NPC get a new pokemon?
No, that wouldn't be fair either.  The Rogues are minimally funded and only have enough pokemon to give to those that are directly involved with this mission.   Only those Rogues still in the main contest get a new pokemon for this mission.   Basically, the extra pokemon are an incentive/reward to those contestants that have to do the extra storytelling work required of being a rogue.   

• How well known are the Rogues?
- This should be your character’s first time hearing of the Rogues. Up to this point they have been quietly building their forces.

•Well my character isn’t joining the Rogues and has more than one pokémon out! So do I get to use both/all three?
No. You must choose one pokemon for your Soldier to use for the Round.

• What craft can my characters use?
Kanto and Johto forces can use:
Airforce - Spitfire, Hellcat, or Bomber
Navy - Small personal ships (3-5 people per ship) or Row boats
Army - Jeeps

Rogue forces will have to commandeer any crafts they want to use.

• I'm still confused about the introduction of this round. I need a breakdown
Here you go: docs.google.com/document/pub?i…

• Wait, did I hear them say Ecruteak is in Kanto?
No, that's an error on our part. The battle will take place in Ecruteak, Johto.

Rogues have special pokeballs (located under the ref section of this journal.) And since they have control the tower... you can suggest they can pick n' choose who's pokeballs work (albeit that might take some explaining)

I have quite of a BIIIG doubt (damn you my bad english).

Ignoring for a moment the rogue party, is Kanto breaking throught Ecruteak fighting every Johto soldier on sight or Kanto already took controll over the city and the Johto forces are arriving at the scene in order to expell the invaders?

In other words, is it Kanto or Johto that has controll over the city and is stationed there?

(sorry for posting this 2 times but I'm in exams month at college and I need to start working on my entry or I'll have no time at all to finish what I'm aiming for in time ^^;)

So was the EMP pulse a one-time sort of thing, or could the signal be potentially jammed to allow the use of pokeballs? (I know it's only one pokemon for this round, but as a sort of plot device.)
Reply
:iconthetimepolice:
TheTimePolice Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
The EMP has only been used once, but it's all that's needed to keep the pokeballs closed (unless you've written this different. If it is still working that shouldn't be to much of a problem anyways.)

Rogues will still shoot or force down enemy planes though, right?

Also, are PS boats able to be manned by only 2 people? (I'm having trouble finding a third crew member) and I'm not sure when the bombers will be coming out, but can you give me this hint: are they more like B-25's (2 engines), B-17's (4 engines, long nose) or B-29's (4 engines, HUGE, cockpit=nose), or are they like the British 4-engine bombers?
Reply

nillia Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2012  Professional General Artist
I can't explain anything about boats or bombers (not my department) but I can tell you that a Rogue might shoot down a plane if they felt a serious need to, but since there are so few Rogues, it is unlikely that they will have enough organization/equipment/clearance to snipe down a plane. The rogues are not focused on defeating the enemy, but rather on taking technology. I'm not ruling it out because I'd love to see how you'd write something like that, but make sure it's something you can imagine 50 disorganized guys doing against 3000 organized personnel while technology retrieval is their main goal.

It depends, since the rogues are not in it to cause people harm, i would say serious injury only in defense if there are no other options, if they are just running through knocking people out or seriously harming them for no reason they wouldn't be conveying the right message cB

So if we make a new NPC that is a rogue, no defecting or anything, can they not have one of the new pokemon? Not really upset or anything over it, but if so I'll hold off on the Leafeon for a bit if it's necessary and just give my new NPC 2 pokemon for now.
Really glad to get some clarification on this 8D

Just want to clarify one thing:
How are rogue pokemon distributed/given to the ones who are defecting. The EMP doesn't affect the rogue pokeballs, right? So are the pokemon inside their pokeballs when handed to the new members or presented outside their pokeballs?
Reply
:iconthetimepolice:
TheTimePolice Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
The creative aspect of this is up to you; perhaps Jane/Katrya/Liz provided your soldier with a pokeball, an anonymous rogue person, or there was a pick up point suggested by Katrya. It's up to you!

Also sorry for the late comment, it seems these got missed during the shuffle.

(I think I answered this same question somewhere? Perhaps my comment got deleted, but if you're receiving this twice, I'm sorry.)

Kanto has partial control of the city. This has been done by their new technological advances, giving them an upper hand on the war. Yes, they will fight Johto soldiers on sight who attempt to break through their lines. After Jane's speech, you can imagine that the war is now in full scale, fighting with one another.

A Question! When defecting, does the actual defection take place in the moment the psychic broadcast goes out? IE, the troops hear the broadcast and decide then and there to turn...? Or Can we have a little leeway in that regard? As in, have a character notified of something coming, so they can prepare to defect or something along those lines.

It would make sense for my character to defect, in relation to his backstory, but... he wouldn't do it on a whim just hearing the broadcast in battle. I don't think many people would just get up and leave without prior knowlege, considering some character's backstory/nature.

TheTimePolice Featured By Owner May 31, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
I sort of imagined after the hacker's speech, Katrya started using her mons to send out the 'invitations.' Of course if you want, this can take a while (maybe they can only talk to so many people at one time?) thus giving your character some time in the heat of the war.

Concerning the rogues, was the EMP field used to lock the pokeballs before or after people defected? Like how much of a time gap was there between the broadcast and the lockdown, and if there was some time after the defection, would the people that defected have known about the it beforehand? Would it have been part of the Rogue 'trial'?

Just wodering c:
Reply
:iconthetimepolice:
TheTimePolice Featured By Owner May 30, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Everything happened very fast; perhaps it would be suggested that the tower can control who can use their pokeballs (damn that technology is suddenly sophisticated.) I imagined the lockdown went down before the message went out (so the rebels could better protect themselves) but again, that would imply the tower being able to be selectable.

I'm not sure I'd be restricting things if I give a precise timeline, so if there's a way you want to perceive it that you like, go for it!

gonna be honest here...is a cool move but i dont like it if its not gonna get flexible later... i could bear to play and face friends that joined the other region but now having a third faction and now dealing with friends from your factions? lots of drama will happen...
this will turn into a civil war factionist...and when those things happen ppl will be forced to think about this war...and some might lose interest in their current faction... i just hope that when this happen no one is forced to switch sides or stuffs

Have confidence in us, we'll try to keep it as fun for the whole time. If by the end, when there is only a handful of people standing and they are greatly upset with things (I hope we'd never do that bad of a job? ) then there is no reason to keep our own rules.

For now I think things will be going fine!

This will be mentioned in upcoming rounds, so it's a leap of faith for going the POW route.

However nothing horrible will happen to your mons. So long as they stay in their balls, they don't present an immediate hazard.

Yay! More questions...


From the Pokemon List:
"Some Pokémon will have accompanying notes, explaining their existence in the time period (ie: Rotom.) Please take these notes into account when representing that Pokémon"
May the rebels please be given the notes that explain Rotom's existance in the time period? Possibly the same for Porygon, Voltorb and Magnemite?

Also, whilst talking about Rotoms, I was thinking of giving it Electro Ball, however given that it's power -can- be more than the R3 Limit, is that an okay move to have? If so, should I just avoid targeting slower opponents?

Fianlly, are NPCs who are planning on doing something for R3 allowed to add their names to the spreadsheet, seeing as it's the 'official' document? (Rather than the 'unoffiical' previous Doc?)
