VOICE: Well, let's get this sorted out, then.

This is you. You've been interested in Pokémon for most of your life, but are sketchy on a lot of the details. In spite of this, you've decided to take the plunge and become a Pokémon trainer!

So, if you don't mind me asking... what's your name?

[Let's see if I can't get this off the ground.

And just as a note -- based on prior experience, I've decided to go with the session format and stick to it, just to keep myself sane and images reasonably timely. This means I'll be announcing times and whatnot, although they'll probably change from time to time due to my current schedule being rather inconsistent. However, this bit at the beginning will be more of a "post as you guys do"-type deal until we get the characters established and so on.

Also, with any luck, the art will improve over time instead of devolving like it did last time. >_>]

[Nothing; I'm just making sure there's plenty of time for you guys to voice your opinions because this name is obviously going to follow the player character around for the rest of the game.

DIFFERENT VOICE: We have always been in favor of the notion that games should be played the way you, the player, want to play them. However, the name you have selected is invalid, due to unspecified technical or legal reasons. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused, but will have to ask you to select another name.

Also, if you're playing this game, aren't you a little young to be using that sort of word?

[No VGCats reference for you because I have an irrational hatred for Scott Ramsoomair.

Okay well actually because I just plain old don't want to have the rival character named "Douche" because it interferes with storytelling a bit but you know. The VGCats thing isn't helping, anyway.]

... Huh. You wonder what that weird daydream was all about.

Well, now you seem to be in your room. There's not a whole lot in here, honestly. You should probably head on down to the local Pokémon Research Center before too long; it's where you'll receive the documents and equipment necessary for licensed Pokémon training.

But you've got some time. There's no rush. It's not like too many people live in this town anyway.

[Well, it's 19:00 board time, supposedly. Hopefully someone shows up.]

[Okay, so obviously something went wrong on my end, and also I didn't get a whole lot of posts. Maybe I should follow my own advice and announce this on IRC or something.

First session will really start, oh, I don't know, same time tomorrow should probably work. So 19:00 tomorrow and sorry for screwing this up.]

Actually, you were reading up on this not too long ago. Pokémon trainers are, by tradition, given a starter of one of three types, but when you tried to look up the starters for your region, it said that due to supply issues it was difficult to say which starters would be available.

You didn't have time to research further. Guess you'll find out at the lab...

You resist the inexplicably strong urge to be a total asshole to a guy you've never met (though you make a mental note to consider this tactic for future encounters), and answer honestly.
