Hope everyone's been having a wonderful summer! Quite a few things are coming to an end with the end of July, but don't worry, we'll have plenty of new things come fall. In the meanwhile, let's all enjoy these hot, sunny summer days while we have them! I'm sure everyone's Pokemon are loving this weather... As long as they aren't ice types. Hehe!

    Who says roleplaying stops when parenting begins? Meet Rotenda, a father and war veteran, who blows all conventional thinking out of the water. Whether its squeaking on during nap time or chatting between win streaks in Pokemon's TCG game, Rotenda is one of our more busy users! It definitely doesn't stop him from cranking out post after post with zippy speed.

    When a new user comes around, Rotenda is always quick to show off his plotter which houses information all about his four characters. His original is Bugcatcher Tweak who, uncharacteristically, started with a Dratini from Professor Coral's lab but is hell bent on owning one of every conceivable bug there is! Possibly more if the Deltas are kind to him. Then there is Jewel who is one of our most truly competitive characters, always looking for the fight in every encounter. Frank is a little more simple and some might call him an airhead but this Ranger-to-be has quite a bit of heart in him as he travels across Ho'ohiki to start a new life down a better path. Then there is Juju, such a friendly girl but watch out for Grit, her overprotective Onix. Safe to say any wrong move will see you under a pile of rubble if Grit has anything to say about it. All of these characters are colorful and fun to play with and I encourage you to leave Rotenda a message to start a thread today!

    Whether you want to hang out with someone in the cbox or get one hell of a challenge in a battle, Rotenda is your guy. He's one of our speediest roleplayers so expect it faster than next day delivery as he posts almost instantly compared to your own. New users will almost always hear from him so why don't you beat him to the punch and message him already!

    Talk about an electrifying rivalry! Jago and Jewel met each other in a random encounter where after a rough battle, Jewel's Flint pulled off an amazing victory but that wasn't the only time they battled. Some time later, Jago messaged Jewel and challenged her yet again! I won't spoil the end of this battle but its definitely a wild one you should read. The latest adventure with them together involves Jago challenging the Okeanos Gym and while he does that Jewel of course has to tag along as bitter sweet support, as she teases him relentlessly int he process. Jago is up for the added challenge however and together they make quite the team. It will be interesting to see how these two grow together and what mischief they can plow their way through together!

    user posted image June's quote of the month is..!

    The volcano is stirring up all kinds of trouble and the Bends has got it bad! The Rock and Ground types in the area have abandoned their nests for fear of their own lives and its fallen onto young Tweak and, slightly less young, Hideki to find the eggs and take them to safety. Their biggest hurdle? A Fissure that has started spewing all kinds of foul chemicals into the air. In this quote Hideki just finished narrowly saving Tweak's life by carrying him, gear included, to safety while Tweak holds an egg that probably weighs at least 15 pounds all by itself. Tweak isn't the only one impressed by such a feat but Hideki is used to the hard labor thanks to his days as a farm hand. Hopefully these two can figure out a way to work together and find these eggs before its too late!

    user posted image June's thread of the month is..!
    There is no better way to know you're on the right path than to be a guy looking to be a Ranger coming across a Poacher with his catch. Frank isn't about to let this transgression go and the Poacher isn't about to let Frank walk all over him, especially after learning that Frank isn't a real Ranger, at least not yet. The prize at stake? Six Ditto in electrified cages just waiting to be set free. A Pokemon battle has already broke out but while that rages on by itself, Frank and the Poacher are having their own fight! We're rooting for you Frank!

    Terri is one of our unique Pokemon, sporting not only a deadly tail but a mullet as well! You'll find him ever vigilant at Tania's side as he joins her in her mission to study Pokemon Behavior as well as the very rare, white whales of the research world, Delta forms. Already Terri has helped rescue an Elekid that Tania then captured. Since then, Terri has acted as a Big Brother and Protector of the young Elekid, offering Guidance as it makes its way through a much more Human-centric world. Terri is a more serious Pokemon but is certainly kind enough to hold a chat or two with Pokemon he meets. Cross paths with Tania so you can meet Terri today!

    user posted image June's character of the month is..!
    I think everyone can agree when I say there is no one out there that is nicer or more heartful than David. Prone to giving every bit of energy into making someone's day, David is the kind of guy that Piscari loves to break and yet through all the years of being under Boss' thumb David has remained a source of light in the life of people like his best friend Copper, his brother in sobriety Adam, and the other people he meets along the way. James Moore has learned first hand about David's infectious understanding and bubbly personality as the two of them get lunch, as David's treat, at one of the local food trucks in Okeanos.

    Now lets talk about about the elephant in the room. A David thread isn't quite a David thread without him talking even just a little bit about Copper. After two years of forceful separation due to an injury caused by Boss, David jumped at the chance to reunite with the person that matters most to him in the world (cw). Their reunion is bitter sweet with both of them shuddering with anxiety. Not long after that their friendship is tested as Azazel attacks David (cw) on a midnight romp around forcing him to go after a Skarmory (cw) or risk Copper going through a worse fate. David of course says yes but is in over his head for sure when all he has is his under developed Ground Pokemon and an Electric Net Gun, all when its about to storm.

    David would do anything for the people in his life. Hell he'd do anything for the people he just meets. He gives everything there is for a person's safe and joyous existence. In this David is more than a little foolish, getting disastrously wounded along the way. We only hope the best of luck for David and his saintly personality. At this point I think the only thing anyone ever wants right now is David's safe and joyous existence so lets hope he finds it.

    Scath is one of our sweeter users. Usually they are quite busy, flitting between chatting in the cbox to taking care of her animals or cooking lavish meals for her friends and family. Between it all she finds time to write beautifully interesting threads with wildly different characters that draw the eye every time. She certainly writes from the heart as you can feel what drives each character when reading her threads making for an enjoyable read.

    Now Scath doesn't have a plotter but you can PM her! Her four characters are unique and you won't have anything quite like them anywhere on the site. From Zaire, a newly made Stipes Warden, who is struggling with what it means to be herself in a place where everything she is goes against ancient rules. To Lancaeron, who suffers from amnesia and an uncontrollable fear of the water, is determined to get all the badges and become a champion. Next up is Tanith who appears to be your average Researcher until you find out that not only has she witnessed Shiny Pokemon before but she's hunting them down in order to study their behavior compared to other Pokemon. Last, a fan favorite, is Gwyn, a dragon specialist who is bringing Scath out of her comfort zone, his search for dragons is bringing him out of Campana in order to be even stronger than before. Each of these characters are a really fun read and I recommend checking them out.

    Now unfortunately, our dear Scath has fallen on some hard times. You'll still see them around in the cbox, being sweet as can be, but they are much slower in their replies to threads. I don't think that should stop you from plotting with them so definitely hit them up for a bit of exploring.

    user posted image July's duo of the month is..!
    Now it would be unfair to call Campana a small town but it is certainly a town where people tend to know one another as friends quite easily. Whether from working together in the mines or simply bumping into each other at the market every weekend. Marina and Bill are two such people that, along with a few other young adults of their age, know each other in a little more than passing thanks to Campana's friendly nature.

    Fast forward to now as Marina and Bill meet up with each other again! However this time when they meet up their Pokemon are nowhere to be seen and they must uncover just where they've gotten off to and in the meantime? Marina will make all the puns she can muster! Its a definitely must follow for these budding trainers as they make their way through the Ho'ohiki landscape.

    user posted image July's quote of the month is..!

    Skarmory pub is certainly one of the most popular pubs in Campana and no one knows that better than Driscoll Star. Of course when people walk through town and stop in for a drink, Driscoll can pick them out right away and there is nothing wrong with being a little nosy (or friendly). Of course when the newcomer bites instead of plays along, its always a good idea to have a snappy come back for the occasion. Driscoll is faced with a grumpy Ranger in this thread as he's judged for raising his Pokemon. Find out just what the Ranger says in response or what Driscoll does next in this great thread!

    user posted image July's thread of the month is..!
    This is one wild thread! It starts off with Alexis determined to find a Flebebe and. while she's willing to settle for a red or white one, she really wants it to be blue. It just so happens two Flebebe are happening by! One of them is even a blue one! However before Alexis can say your howdy-do's the Flebebe are attacked by a Staravia who claims these two Pokemon stole some of his berries and Boreas and Singe are quick to offer help, just like good Ranger Pokemon should. But that's not what makes this thread great. In a sudden turn of events a mysterious wind starts blowing. What could it be? Read the thread and find out!

    user posted image July's Pokémon of the month is..!

    Meet Kite, a young Scyther with a belly full of snark and anger. Together with Lux they are working through their issues as they both try to be the best they can as Lux finds their place in the new Ho'ohiki landscape. Just when there was progress made two slowpoke go and cause trouble. At first Kite is reasonable and tries to scare the Slowpoke off with his words but it doesn't take long for the Scyther to lose his cool and cause both lower level Pokemon to faint. Of course Lux blames themself too and wants to become stronger in hopes that Kite listens to them better. We hope for the best between Kite and Lux, that they realize the real power is within the friendship they have together rather than any other power.

    user posted image July's character of the month is..!
    Barrett may not be a character you're inclined to root for when you first find out about him but something about this scrappy, cheerful resident of PIscari makes you almost instantly fall into step beside him. Barrett is one of the top henchmen and worshipers of our resident God of Destruction, Azazel and as such interacts with Azazel's right hand man Z on occasion. However when Z starts putting on moves Barrett doesn't know how to act! That's definitely not the case. When a wayward foreigner talks about hearing "negative things" about Piscari Barrett fills her in without missing a beat but comes off a little more cheerfully than intended. Barrett is a firm believer in Azazel's plans to destroy the world but he also believes bringing it anew, a clear violation in Azazel's believes (or so he believes), this can be seen when he makes an offering not only to Yvetal but also to Xerneas!

    That offering to Xerneas and his believe in renewal is best seen in how he interacts with his Pokemon. He is a firm believer that his Pokemon are the only good things in the world. That through them a perfect world can happen. He's done a lot to insure their safety, seen in how he got Coconut's Egg (cw) and his interactions with Sugar in while trying to hatch the egg (cw). While he may be a good for Azazel it also feels like a lot of things could change if someone were to open his eyes to a better way of life that perhaps strived for better beginnings rather than total and complete endings.

    BLASTOISE are emerging from Lake Duo Dulis!
    Blastoise has water spouts that protrude from its shell. The water spouts are very accurate. They can shoot bullets of water with enough accuracy to strike empty cans from a distance of over 160 feet.

    Waking up from years of peaceful slumber at the bottom of the lake, these tortoises are looking for food and companionship to ease their lonely hearts.

    As the volcano continues to spew lava, the Turtonator stay resolutely in place along the pass.

    SLUGMA have fled to Una Way!
    Molten magma courses throughout Slugma's circulatory system. If this Pokémon is chilled, the magma cools and hardens. Its body turns brittle and chunks fall off, reducing its size.

    Still displaced from the volcano they are currently enjoying the ability to melt all the metal in Una Way.

    You can also receive a free soot sack, which will let you collect soot to turn into handy flutes, so make sure to grab one while you can!

    This event will be affecting Journey Threads for the foreseeable future, so please do keep that in mind and check out the thread explaining this big site-wide event!

    Scientists believe the seismic event will be ending October 31st at 11:59pm EST. So make sure to collect as much ash as you can before the event is over for good! Jobs will still be allowed to continue as long as it takes but no new participants may enter after it is over.

user posted image To celebrate this special occasion, we have a brand new event, as well as changes to upcoming events! Click to reveal!
    In the past, events required your character to be close enough to the action to join, but we're changing this to now allow anyone to join (a bit like jobs!), just limited to one character per person. Events are also become less moderated, thought NPCs may still show up in events from time to time-- so you don't have to worry about tagging a mod. Just go ahead and keep posting, and feel free to leave and join at any time-- as long as you participate, you'll get something out of the experience!

    Without further ado, here's our newest event:

    user posted image
    The Dana Festival has come to Stipes City!

    user posted image If you happen to have a character nearby, consider throwing them into one of these threads! Event completion always comes with prizes, and what happens might influence the world more drastically than you might expect. Event threads are one of the rare modded threads that you can participate in alongside a journey thread, so don't wait! Join today!

user posted image Looking for some reading material? Why not check out today's thread spotlights? Click to reveal!
    Below are some threads that our Staff has picked out to showcase. If you have suggestions for future thread spotlights, message Shafaer with the links.

    Andy's Early Journey Jitters -- Andy is a young kid from Okeanos already looking at fulfilling his dreams at either becoming a great Breeder or help people as a Ranger. Of course before he can start doing either he needs supplies for his journey around Ho'ohiki as he stops by the Ranger Stations and gets more Pokemon to be able to Breed. In walks in a guy claiming to own the city's Aquarium, asking Andy to help him out with an injured Staryu down by the beach. A true Ranger-to-be would do it for free but Quinn is offering a hefty bit of spending money to help sweeten the deal.

    The 1st Station. -- Seems Rangers are a popular topic right now. In Uberrime Station not only one but two people show up looking at the Station in their own brand of hoping to be apart of it, if not now then one day. Unfortunately the only Ranger home at the moment isn't so convinced on either person and would much rather hand them off to their superior if they were around. And what's this? In the midst of it all Fred just pops in and then pops out again? This one might be a strange one.

    And the Waves Washed Over Me -- The volcano might be spewing ash and soot into the sky but that doesn't stop people from going out along the beach. Andrew and Ethan may have met in unconventional ways but they are quickly turning into, in the very least, unconventional acquaintances. Of course with the Pokemon literally racing around it seems like Ethan is hard pressed to keep a frown on his face making Andrew's smiles wider and wider.

    Always on Duty -- Another Ranger thread follows, everyone's favorite, Uberrime Ranger Leader Lilith as she heals her Pokemon only to overhear a young kid's struggle with a Poacher. Lilith is on the case! And the best part about this thread? It ends with ice cream!

    Time to Fly Again -- Why end our love of Rangers there? A retired Ranger and the Researcher who rescued him from himself reunite and catch up in this thread. These two are definitely old friends and are both really happy to see each other again. Its heartwarming and definitely worth a read.
