    I really like the idea of a saturday morning cartoon parody/deconstruction but, I dunno, the plot seems kinda complicated. It could just be my feeble brain, though.

    I know the RPG Revivals have not been the most popular thing as they have not really worked, but each RPG died for different reasons. And one of the reasons I feel that the RPG I'm going to mentioned died, is the GM's were not active and were known for blipping off the radar for a while every now and then to begin with.

    The "Gotta Catch 'Em All" Pokemon RPG looked at the world of Pokemon and put a mature spin on it. As in, it was more realistic with the audience and members of the game being matured teens and up. Evil organizations like Team Rocket and such were what they should be: evil and not in the childlike sense that the cartoon made them to be.

    The RPG would have a different name, for it would have a few changes: before only the First and Second Generation Pokemon were allowed, and if you wanted to have any Third or Fourth Generation Pokemon it had to be approved by GM's. I do not wish to have such a restriction so that people can literally do what they wish so long as it fits within the rest of the established rules.

    The other changes that will be made is that I will be making a new island, with Gym Leaders I have established and such. People can still apply as the Gym Leaders from previous Pokemon games but I'd encourage them to have their leaders not remain in their gyms in other areas of the world. So essentially I am creating an entirely new globe, where each continent is the worlds from the previous Pokemon games+my continent for the new towns and Gym Leaders of this game. You will know the new Gym Leaders names, Pokemon, the moves of their Pokemon (as in the TMs they may have since all Pokemon in this game can use any move the Pokemon they can learn regularly as they will still not be restricted to 4 moves at a time), the Gym Name & Badge, as well as the Town they reside in. My character will be the Gym Leader of the last Gym for those who want to play characters who challenge the Gym Leaders.

    I wasn't a GM in the last game, though I was more active than the GM's and put lots of input. And I personally have several ideas set in mind so I see myself very much investing in keeping this RPG alive should it somehow die down. The new Pokemon RPG game will be called "Pokemon Turquoise Version" RPG.

    Sounds good. You can be an AGM.

    Oh, and applying for my created Gym Leaders for the other 7 Gyms is an option. I will provide mini-bios for them and such and from there you should be able to gather their personality type and such to portray them.

    Sounds good. I'd probably be applying for a created character.

    This is an awesome idea trusty. I too would probably find time to play, being that I've been on a FireRed binge as of late. One question though, will you be deciding the Gym Leader's specialty/pokemon type and their Pokemon as well, or is that up to the players?

    Everyone gets their Pokemon randomly, with the odds heavily favored towards psyduck. :p

    While I already have all the information about the Gym Leaders and their Pokemon, shoot me your ideas via MSN and I can see what can be done. I am rather fond of the gym leaders I designed and such, but I'm always up for ideas.

    ok ive worked on this more
    RPG Application
    Screenname of the Proposed RPG’s Game Master:sabetoonth
    Do You Have An Instant Messenger that we can reach you on for better conversation? (i.e MSN, Yahoo, AIM, ect.)
    And if so, what is your screenname?:
    ive got yahoo and gmail chat, and a skype, names sabetoonth there too
    Gamemasters/Assistant Gamemasters already chosen: i am at the moment the only game master
    How will the overall layout of the RPG be?: i see myself at the moment as GM, with B-man, with ongoing play
    Premise of RPG, if it is a user created RPG see below for applicable additions to this Applicaton, (Must be a
    paragraph or longer). based ont he films starring kate beckinsale scott speedman and bill nighy, the world is not
    as humans see it, there are htings that go bump in the night, vampires and werewolves, for centuries a war has
    raged between the two species recenlty events have unfolded that have hcanged the underworld forever, viktor,
    a vampire elder has been slain by the death dealer selene and her new lover, micheal corvin, human descendant
    of alexander corvinus, and a hybrid, both vampire and lycan, but stronger then both. amelia another elder, and the vampire
    council have been slain by lycans. and marcuz, the first vampire, has become a hybrid yet was also slain by selene, who had fed
    on the blood of alexander corvinus, mortally wounded by his son marcus. marcus' brother william, the first lycan,
    was killed by his distnat relative, micheal corvin. selene can now walk in the light, and the future of both species is uncertain.
    LIMITATIONS:noteveryone can be a hybrid, mostly becuase you have to be descended from alexander corvinus, a 5th centruy warlord,
    then you have to be a carrier for the "Corvinus Strain" the mutated plaugue that ade alexander the first immortal.
    micheal is the only known surviving carrierm though not much is known about his immediate family(wink wink, dont get
    carried away kids though itd only be a parent and a child that would be carriers)
    WHAT I HOPE TO ACCOMPLISH: with this RPG i want to give fans and people interested a chance to fire off some rounds
    at the other species, make deals, break them, conive and scheme their way as far as they can, or jsut kill stuff, but
    but even the death dealers, just simple soldiers, can find themselves in a big mess that unravels others plans.
    What will this RPG bring to the RPG forums? (please write two complete sentences): this RPG will bring an action/horror
    game, combineing the two genres of movies, something i dont think the hype has, also a litle change up from the usual
    comics RPGs and scifi ones.

    Title Of The RPG You Would Like To Propose:UNDERWORLD:BLOOD RUN
    Example Of Characters Application:
    Name: self explanitory
    Age:birth date or year, and how old they appear
    Gender: self explanitory
    Species: Lycan, vampire,hybrid(pick one)
    Physical Traits: height, weight, eyes color, red color, build, skin, hair cut and style of any facial hair
    Appearance: regular dress for your character
    Personality: how does your character interact with others? do they have any...problems?
    History:what has already happened to your character?

    Weapons: weapon(s) of choice, be specific

    Extra info: Anything extra you want to let everyone know.
    -----
    Character Races within RPG (if Applicable):
    VAMPIRES
    LYCANS
    HYBRIDS

    hows it look?

    And this past season in DC we were talking about doing a crossover with another DC RPG on another site sometime in Season 9, have them come on to the hype and be an Earth-2 counterpart to our Earth-1. I can't remember the name of the site, but they're history is just as long as our RPG's.

    'Sides, given the current state of that show it should be renamed "Green Arrow's Smallville featuring Clark Kent" if you guys went for a third attempt. :oldrazz:

    As long as it doesn't involve Davis Bloome, I don't care what they call it. :o

    I'll have a think and a consider...
