NEWS
NEWS
Hello and welcome to PMD-RP News of September 2016!

- General News & Updates -
We currently have a dungeon design competition being hosted on the site! If you would like to see a dungeon made that you had on your mind, try submitting the idea! Rules and details on the competition is located -->HERE<--

The dungeon being added to the site isn't the only reward!

- Guild -
The guild has had many request of which have or is about to expire very soon. It would be a shame that so many requests are going unanswered. On that note, the guild is always recruiting new members!

Notice, the content within this spoiler may bring about the feels (EMOTIONS):
 

- Current Site wide Event -
This section is a duplicate of last month's site wide events... No new changes present. If you wish to skip past it, Please click HERE

As you may or may not be aware, the current site wide event "The Wake of Destruction" is still ongoing. The main thread is located ->here<-)

Arceus and Giratina still both have one out of three recruits, whereas Zygarde has none.
How can you participate in this event? Now that's a good question! Here's how!:

  • The battle for Mewtwo, Arceus's second recruit still rages on in Serene Cave and you can participate by rolling a Mewtwo encounter in that particular dungeon!
  • Zygarde's first recruit, Shaymin has been located in Misty Mire, but requires rescuing! In order to participate in freeing Shaymin, you must work to defeat any Muk, Gourgeist, Malamar and Reuniclus that you encounter in Misty Mire.
  • The clue for Giratina's second recruit can be found in the event thread. If you can work out what it is you need to do, you may just be rewarded...

Note that any who participate in dealing damage to Mewtwo, or defeating even a single opponent to help free Shaymin will be eligible to require the rewards offered for completing each section of the event! Similar is true for any other parts of the event; each user who actively participates and results in progression of the event will receive rewards.

If you happen to roll Mewtwo in Serene Cave, or defeat one of the above mentioned opponents in Misty Mire, please notify myself or another administrator so that we can update the event thread!

As a quick reminder, the escort rule can be utilized in any event related threads as long as said thread is specifically marked as an Event Thread by the user posting it. The escort rule allows a character with higher energy to escort up to two extra characters to a dungeon that they would not normally be able to access due to the constraints of the energy system. It costs 5 extra energy per pokemon being escorted for the higher energy character to enter that dungeon, and any character that is being escorted will have 0 energy upon entering the dungeon and will have to replenish their energy with berries or other items.

It is wise to confirm with a staff member before using the escort rule, just to be safe. But the rule was always intended to help us be inclusive of newer members of the site who might want to explore the areas linked to site events but who have characters with low energy.
 
- Independent Organization News -

Just a reminder to all members that we have four Independent Organizations (IOs) on the site currently, and characters can apply for membership in any of these whilst their character is still being looked over for approval by Character Moderators. Some IOs have their own conditions for joining though, so you may have to wait until after your character is approved to finalize your IO signup for various reasons!

The list of current IOs on the site is located ->here<- and includes Steamrise Inn, The Tribe of Renewed Life, Blacktooth Kingdom and the Windrose Scouts.

This section will be used to report on various news in IOs and generate interest in the IOs on the site, and so if any IO founders have any news they would like me to include in this section, feel free to send an admin a message and we will fit it into the news!

- Other Notices -

Rules and Report Function

As per, here's your monthly reminder to keep yourself up to date with all of the site's rules! The rules board is located ->here<- and though we will usually notify when large rule changes take place, we do still make smaller edits without a big notice so it's worth re-reading them every now and then.

Finally I'd also like to remind everyone that in order to help staff and moderators do their jobs more easily, we encourage you to report any post in a thread that you see is breaking the site's rules by using the report button located on each post.

This little icon is located by the Quote, Edit and Delete buttons of each post; upon clicking, you can select a reason for the report and write why you are reporting that particular post.

By doing this, we can more quickly and easily deal with posts that are breaking the rules as staff are notified of posts that are reported!

Birthdays!
This month's birthdays are as follow

Discussion Topic
This month we will continue our discussion about the police and outlaw system along with another suggestion that was given to us about Independent Organizations.

First, we will start with independent organizations. It was mentioned that some organizations are going inactive or currently not being used. Some users believe that there should be restrictions put in place to prevent too many organizations from cropping up with little to no activity. One such suggestion was to implement an inactivity limit on organizations, similar to how when users go inactive, there characters would be put up for adoption. However, what would be defined as an organization being inactive?

What do you think about this?

I think everyone needs to get their butts down into this event or I'm going to die

On the subject of Independent Organizations, I don't find it fair to the owner of an IO to place their IO under an inactivity limit, especially when the IO system is relatively new and thus so are the IO's themselves. We need time to collect members and get the ball rolling. Not to mention that some IO's exist as part of a backstory or current plot for certain members of IO's. To suddenly rip the IO away from the site would completely ruin that plot or backstory. Maybe this can be rethought once there are more IOs and the site becomes cluttered with unused/inactive IOs, this subject can be revisited. Or if there must be a solution right now, I suggest that IO's only be deleted/archived/whathaveyou once the creator or current leader(s) are considered inactive and/or up for deletion themselves.

I have already broken out the notepad and pen for the dungeon contest... even if mine is probably not going to win. It's worth a shot!

The solutions wouldn't have to be present right away. I also agree with you about how some IO's are used for plot purpose. This is why we need to find a way to define inactivity as well. Perhaps inactivity could be defined as the location not being used + the leader is inactive. Something along those lines would probably fit alright.

If my Minun carries the team here, there's gonna be a few Pokémon that need counseling for letting a tiny little rodent to pull his weight against giant demon cat god. /shot

As for the inactivity idea, I believe I remember bringing this up in the CBox. I feel as if it would make sure that people keep up-to-date with their IOs and just not making them for giggles and they never get used. I feel like this would make sure that whatever gets set up should keep going or could be transferred to another member of the site in case they wanted it. Not only would it keep the number at a manageable level, but it would also allow players to "adopt" IOs should the original RPer be unable to keep it going.

So, happy birthday to all of you in September. I have a speech prepared. Ahem

THIS IS THE MONTH OF CHAMPIONS! TO THOSE OF US BORN DURING THIS GLORIOUS TIME, REMIND YOURSELF AND YOUR FELLOW BRETHREN OF SEPTEMBER THAT WE DO NOT HAVE THE BURDEN OF LOSING! WE ARE WINNERS, EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US! WE SUCCEED IN ALL WE DO, FOR WE WERE BORN UNDER THE GREATEST MONTH!

But for real, just remember that you're awesome. September born or not. I don't know why I'm being motivational, but who cares, let's keep the ball rolling. Let's start a train filled with shipments of greatness in this thread! Because everyone deserves to be told they're great. And if that doesn't happen, then oh well. There's always next month. But remember this, no matter what you do in life, you always deserve to have a friend. And if you don't have one, then what are you doing? Friends are great. I just went off on a tangent. Sorry 'bout that. Anywho, hopefully a train passes through. See you all sometime!
