Welcome to the WAR X RP! Conquer the continent of Aria, save it, blow it all to smithereens, or do something too nonsensical for me to think of. This is the world, it's your job to live in it.
All RP posts must use the following header at the top of every post, in bold: Name, Team Name, Location, and Affected RPers. For example:

Posts that do not include the header will not be considered valid until the header is applied.
The following format for traveling between locations on the Aria map will be used.
Travel by road, whether on Pokemon, boats, or foot, will always require a travel post. For example, if someone is departing from Magnasanti and going to Saffron by foot, they must make three posts total: One with their departure, one with their arrival, and one with activity on the trip, possibly checking through customs at Fort Iron.
Travel by air, whether on Pokemon or flying vessels, does not need a travel post IF the destination is the closest city-state on the map or closer. For example, flying between Venefinia and Mancia does not require a travel post, but flying between Venefinia and Itum does. For the purposes of clarity, the closest city for each city is listed here:
Fort Aer-Lamentur Vail
Lamentur Vail-Fort Aer
If you are traveling by air, your starting location is one of the city-states, and your destination is its associated city-state as listed above or closer on the Aria Map, then you do not need a travel post.
Travel that does not begin in a city-state will always require a travel post. For example, going anywhere from Fort Iron, regardless of mode of travel, must have a post spent on travel.
The sole exception to the travel post rule for locations listed on the map is travel between Magus and the entrance into Mongiru Barro. These two locations are within visual range of each other, and so no travel post is necessary if moving from one place to the other.
6 points are awarded each week: 3 for 1st place, 2 for 2nd place, and 1 for 3rd place, for a total of 30 points across the WAR. I will be judging on the following criteria:
1. Use of English. This includes not only spelling, grammar, and punctuation, but your vocabulary and the feel of your prose. Well written posts will be judged well.
2. Creativity. What are you doing, and how are you doing it? While it is not necessary to avoid conventional means of achieving a goal, doing so in a creative fashion will make you seem like a better RPer.
3. Contribution to the RP. An RPer that spends all of his/her time doing something in a corner by themselves will not earn much points, regardless of how creative or well-written his/her posts are.
