Can't wait for this to start!
Can't wait for this to start!
Apologies for the delay. I've been busy with real life and I'm still working on the Role PMs.
Expect them later tonight. This game has a preliminary Night 0 to get everybody set up anyway.
Before things get started, I've got a question. Does the [Council of Villains] subtitle for this thread/game indicate anything that I ought to be aware of? I Googled "council of villains" and the first two results were threads of previous Mafia games started by Chaotix. I read the OP of both, but didn't see much in common, apart from being very character oriented. I'll try to read the summaries for both games by tomorrow.
Also, please be patient with me, as I've only participated in one Mafia game, back in 2006, and things were fairly basic back then.
Just a reference to Chaotix' series of games, as you guessed.
Know your Pokemans and you'll be fine for this game.
Thank you all for the responses. I guess we all need to go ahead and pick 3-6 Pokemon?
If you want to read the story from the last Council of Villains game, look here: http://forums.totalwar.org/vb/showth...rmation-Thread
There should be links to the games before that in that same thread.
I estimate that I'll be sending out role PMs in an hour or sooner.
EDIT: Your 6 Pokemon are coming with the role PMs. You don't pick them, you'll just choose your team of three from that short list.
Chaotix, which gens are you using? I haven't seen a Pokemon movie since the Deoxys one, so if this is more anime based than game based, I'm gonna need to randomly brows bulbapedia for a bit.
Also, what level are they all? And TMs?
Can I teach everyone Earthquake? Huh? Huh? Can I? Oooh, and are there sparkly stickers? I want a bunch of the yellow zigzag ones, those are SOOOOOO fun!

As night fell, the seventeen master trainers began to arrive. They all entered Cerulean Cave and cautiously started to make their way through, navigating the confusing tunnels and battling fierce wild Pokemon.
When they reached the center of the cave, several small doorways opened up into a massive arena, carved straight into the stone wall. There were several large computer screens outside the arena, all attached to strange devices that looked like they were designed to transport Pokeballs. Each computer screen read, in large print:
GREETINGS, CHALLENGER. THIS TOURNAMENT IS SET TO BEGIN AT 12:00 PM ON APRIL 1. PLEASE DEPOSIT THREE POKEMON BEFORE ENTERING THE ARENA.
The trainers discovered they could not enter the arena until they dropped Pokeballs into the machine slots. The night stretched on as each trainer carefully decided which team members to use.
When you are ready, please send me a PM containing the three Pokemon you intend to use, as well as the order of those Pokemon for Day 1. You may send me a new order for every Day or Night phase; if you do not, I will assume you are using the previous order.

I think you are meant to send your chioces to Chaotix via a Private Message.
So, just to be clear for those of us who are chronologically challenged, when you say that the tournament begins at 12:00 PM April 1, does that mean midnight tonight?
.....that would be 12:00 am, not pm.

All shall tremble at the might of my level 2 Feebass!
Did Warman get banned? Again?
I've just about had it with him getting banned during my games. He didn't even send in his team of three. I'm replacing him with either Beefy or Yaropolk, whoever responds first.
I am also waiting on Rebel Jeb's team of three.
Night 0 will end in one hour, and I'll try to have the write-up posted; I doubt it will be long. In the meantime, whoever replaces Warman is going to have until the end of this day phase to choose their team.
Everyone else needs to give me an order by the end of the Day phase if they have not already.
EDIT: Yaropolk has replaced Warman. I'm working on the write-up currently.

Outside Cerulean Cave, the night was crisp and clear. Light from the moon and nearby city made it just the right level of light for someone to sneak around unseen, yet see what he was doing. Occasionally the rustling of bushes or the shuffling of feet could be heard, but all of the trainers were too deep in the cave to know about anything happening on the outside.
Suddenly, three cloaked figures zipped over to the mouth of the cave with several contraptions in their hands. Working furiously for about thirty seconds, they then leapt away when they were apparently done. They stood admiring it for a few seconds, when a passing park ranger noticed them.
“Hey! What are you troublemakers doing?”
“Did somebody say trouble?”
The three cloaked figures trembled with excitement, and in a flash threw off their disguises.
With a glint in their eyes, the Team Rocket Trio began their infamous motto.
“Prepare for trouble!”
“And make that double!”
“To protect the world from devastation!”
“To unite all peoples under one nation!”
“To denounce the evils of truth and love!”
“To extend our reach to the stars above!”
“Team Rocket will blast these twerps at the speed of light!”
“They’ll surrender before they can even prepare to fight!”
“Meowth! That’s right!”
With that, Team Rocket’s treacherous plan was revealed. Set up in front of the cave entrance was a massive pile of explosives, which led to a detonator right in front of James.
“Wit all dose twerps stuck down in da cave, dere won’t be nobody to stop Team Rocket anymore!”
“You might say they’ve got a rocky road ahead of them! Ahahahaha!”
“Just hit the detonator already!”
James threw the switch, and a huge explosion shook the ground. When the dust cleared, the mouth of Cerulean cave had been entirely sealed up with massive boulders. The painful screams of the Pokemon and trainers below were muffled by tons of solid rock. No one would ever know they were down there suffering.
Team Rocket rejoiced, laughing since for once their plan had actually worked. Now nobody would be able to stop Team Rocket! They would rule the world!
Spoiler Alert, click show to read:
Inside the cave, all 17 competitors had successfully entered the arena. When the clock struck 12, a strange voice boomed across the stadium, sounding like it was coming from a loudspeaker- but there were no loudspeakers in sight.
“I welcome you all to the Pokemon World Championship Tournament. I know you are all eager to begin. So without further ado, let us begin the voting to decide the first duel!”
Death is yonder
Begin Day 1
It will end at 1:00 PM tomorrow.
"Well, I guess I'll kick things off here. I think vote: Yaropolk should be one of the first to duel. Coming running up at the last second and jamming his pokeballs in. Disrespectful!! Everyone knows you should show up early to an important event like this one. After all, if someone as important as our host is organizing it, it must be important ... Uh, who is our host again?"
My game on Civfanatics could use a few more!: MNOTW XVII: The Cursed Blade!
I'm happy to fight : Vote : Chimpyang
It's a duel? Then vote: Renata.
I am determined not to take this seriously. No better way than trying to get myself killed on day one.
I must agree with autolycus here. It would be most unfitting for a last minute entrant who barely made the cut to stand a chance of winning the entire tournament! This isn't NCAA basketball, after all! (*ba-dum ching*)
