The Tales of Yesteryear
The Tales of Yesteryear
All that you know is at an end
Imagine a world, where one action can lead another to stop, where one action can cause one already done to never happen, where the very rift of time is being ripped apart so that the very laws of cause and effect are being torn at the very seams. A world where crime happens because a law is made, where a man goes deaf, and ten mintutes later, a twig is shoved up his ear, which would've caused him to go deaf. Now imagine if this world, this unimaginable world, is your world.
After a Sinnoh mobster, Gerald Nighton, murders the President of the Pokemon World, Irwin Difands on the day of his inaguaration, havok strikes. The greif stricken Vice-President, Anderssan Rightessa, goes to the peak of Mt. Coronet, taking an army of soldiers with him, planning to use the power of Dialga to reverse time and prevent what would soon be known as the Assasanation of 2013, or as many called it-The End of Time As We Know It. He succeeds in subduing Dialga, but in an amazing feat, Dialga is able to go back in time, and stop the creation of many of the weapons that were used to subdue it in the first place. Now, Dialga has the upper hand against the President, and goes in for the kill, but just as disaster was about to strike, Palkia, rips space open, and swallows Mt. Coronet into the abyss, thefore destroying Dialga, Andersan Rightessa, and countless other soldiers and milions of dollars in technology.
Because Dialga no longer exists, the fabric of time is being warped, letting time skip fowards, or jump backwards in time, a second could be a year, or one day you're driving a hovercraft, and the next, you're in the Stone Age. Where Mt. Coronet used to be, is now a black abyss, where religous men say is the realm of the dead. Palkia, who escaped being destroyed, has taken refuge atop Mt. Pyre, protecting itself by turning the entire mountain into a virtual fortress. While various other legendaries are being captured by governments and terrorist organizations, trying to find a way to get to the almighty Arceus, the only one that has the needed power to restore order to the world.
The different regions are having a bit of trouble, due to the fact that they are largely inable to get the things that they cannot grow.. Travel from one region to another is possible, but when traveling to past times, one must be extremely cautious not to mess with anything that could cause the future to be screwy. Also, future technology is not utilisable in eras where the technology has't been invented yet, and of course, current technology is viewed as obselete, but usually the differences in time occur by region and the sea around it in a fifty mile radius. The technology used to go from one place to another reverts to its form that woud've been at the current time, so be sure to consider what kind of transportation you use to go from place to place. The different regions and their times and how that effects them are as follows:
Hoenn is in the year 3500 C.E. Robots, who were given artificial intelligence that is as impressive as a humans, overthrew the human rule and humans are now simply slaves, forced to reproduce to simply to make a new genration of slaves. Be cautious when you go to Hoenn, for they view you as slaves, but at the same time they underestimate your spirit. Their technology is amzingly advanced.
Sinnoh is in the year 2013 C.E., and is in a state of havoc over the assasination. Think what wuld happen if the president of the USA was killed. There are riots, murders, and prejudice ary. You must be careful not to look at someone the wrong way, for most people carry a knife in their pocket, and Mandarin Rightessa, Anderssan's son, is the new president. The technology is the same as it is now.
The year is 2400 C.E., and things are serene. The people have learned to worship Palkia as a god, and dispose of their dead by throwing them into the Abyss. They scoff at anyone saying that Palkia is evil, and they're technology is extremely adavanced, but is second to the robots that have weaponry built into their bodies.
The year is 5,000,000,000 C.E., and the entire world has been consumed by the Abyss. The rest of the Sevii Islands have since sunk, and the radius of the Abyss is one mile around Birth Island. There is no life and no technology that is known of, and no one that has gone in has ever come back.
The Orange Islands are in the year 100 C.E. The technology is primitive, but people have been getting a powerful grasp on physics and language. There are many islands, and the people are very, very friendly.
Orre is in the year 4,000,000 B.C.E. Humans have just evolved from the forms of monkeys, and have formed a primitive form of the english language. The technology is extremely simple, things such as the pulley are conventional, and the wheel has been in popular use for only 150 years.
Johto is in the year 400,000,000,000,000 B.C.E. Humans are non-existant, and there is only Pokemon. Pokemon of virtually every size and shape can be found, for there is much differenc in terrain from mile to mile. Technology is non-existant.
The year is 600 B.C.E. The worship of Arceus is highly disbelieved, unlike the beliefs of the next 5000 years. Instead, they believe in the legends of Groudon, Kyogre and Rayquaza. Their technology is less primitive than the Orange Islands in the first century, but is not of very much use to anyone, except for the dams and such.
The year is 1600 C.E. The people are opressed, and monarchy rules the land. Taxes are much too high, and people are depressed. Technology of ships and flight is getting rather sophisticated, but relies on the natural elements, rather than electricity.
There are three main groups in the world. The first of them are the Time Trekkers, men who are aware of the actions of Palkia and are out to stop it, and have sent envoys to the Abyss, but none of whom have come back. They are based in Sinnoh and Kanto, but send envoys to other times, and written about these so that the public knows of it, but are discredited in the 25th century. Then there are the Apostles, a group of people who plan to capture Arceus and use it for their own nefarious deeds, which include world conquest. They exist where all humans live, but are unaware of the problems in time. And then there is the Council of the World, a 21st century based group, also known as the government. They are in the dark aout how the time and space warps work. You are free to make your own group, but it must be approved by me first. Also, I am only going to allow three user created groups, so be sure to see how many user created groups there are.
User Created Groups
The Time Protectors
-A small group of scientist, pokemon trainers, and ordinary people who are entirely focused on restoreing balance to the spacetime continueum by restoring Dialgia to power. The group strives to maintain as little change to both past and future so as not to damage the space time continueum any further. They seek the power of the legendary pokemon Celebi in order to harness the power to travel through time to the moment to before Dialgia was destoryed. They are based in Sinnoh in the year 2013.
The entire world is prone to Time Warps. Time Warps is when an large area or a large area automatically jumps fowards or backwards in time. All warps happen at random, but semmingly uncanny intervals. Space Warps are only affect the land around Mt. Coronet and Mt. Pyre, or other signifacantly large Abysses or wherever Palkia is. When a space Warp happens, a small peice, sometimes medium, but never large peice, of land is sucked into the abyss. If nothing is done about the enraged Palkia at the top of Mt. Pyre, the entire world will eventually be sucked into the abyss.
Legendaries and Projects
Previously stated above, all sorts of people are attacking legendaries, trying to use them to access Arceus. To get a legendary, it is the equalivent of a 15 post project. For projects, you can make whatever, as long as it doesn't exceed thirty posts.
No God Modding, Flaming, Spamming, etc.
