NPC Event 2: Wake

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 16, 2013, 9:37 AM
Welcome to the second event for Duality!

Please be sure to read everything carefully since each Guild has two options to pick from for this event; To which you only have to do ONE option, but you can do both if you want, nobody is stopping you.

Just read each one carefully!

:bulletblue: Mages :bulletblue:


:bulletblue: This occurs frequently. Psychic pokemon are often drawn to the Academy but not all are interested in learning. It seems we have a group of vandals in our midst again. If you could please make your way to the central library and remove (or catch~) the ones responsible for this mess and get our library back in order.

:bulletblue: After the recent influx of applicants for the entrance exam to the Mage Academy supplies are running low, in the potions ingredients as well as general food supplies. Could you please head into town and stock up on supplies?


:bulletpurple: Thieves :bulletpurple:


:bulletpurple: Once a month, shipments from Anville village pass through the Icirrus harbour on their way to Castellia City. It's that time again, and it's your job to sabotage, steal and otherwise mess that up. The less supplies those Knights get, the better

:bulletpurple:  What with all the new recruits, the food storage has taken a great beating, we need some of you to head into town (Icirrus, Anville or for the more adventurous types, Castelia) and start collecting ‘funds’ from store owners, inn keepers and general civilians.

:bulletorange: Warriors :bulletorange:


:bulletorange: Rumour has been going around that thieves have been operating within Castelia City once again, collecting/stealing money, food and other things, as a Warrior and protector of the people it is your duty to go and stop these vagabonds.

:bulletorange: But it is also your duty to keep yourself protected too, so go into town and commission an order for new armour and weapons for yourself and the other recruits.

:bulletgreen: Rangers :bulletgreen:


:bulletgreen: With the new recruits having piled in for the Rangers as well as your allies the Warriors it has become apparent that more Pokémon are needed, so it is your job, keepers of the forest to go into the wilds and wrangle up some new Pokémon (The types to your guilds (warrior and rangers))

:bulletgreen: Again with the new influx of recruits to the rangers, comes a lot more skills, from wood carving, to creating clothes from hides of animals, and just over all collecting herbs and meat. So head into town and sell any goods you don’t particularly need anymore (wood carvings, bag making, found berries, herbs etc.)


:bulletblack: Civilians :bulletblack:


:bulletblack: The winter season is nearly over and the shops are opening for business again and there is a lot of business to be had, from rangers supplying them with herbs, to warriors commissioning them for armour an weapons, to mages coming to buy supplies for their potions and thieves coming to collect, ahem, taxes


:bulletblack: Other Information :bulletblack:


About badges, this is how they work:

:bulletblack: Competitors in the main competition, if we see you’ve submitted something to the main competition round that is going on whilst the event is taking place, you will automatically receive the badges; So if they’re ever knocked out they still have a chance at receiving the full set of badges.

:bulletblack: If you participate in this event and submit more than one entry, that is perfectly fine, but you will still only receive the one badge.

:bulletblack: Competitors to the main competition can also participate in the events if they wish to do so, but it is not necessary!

:bulletblack: If this is your second event you’ve taken place in, you will receive the Merchants Badge

:bulletblack: If this is your first event though you will receive the Peasants Badge

:bulletblack: NPCs can receive their next pokémon after they receive the Merchants Badge so if this is your first event you will receive the Peasants Badge and will need to partake in another event in order to receive your next Pokémon!

:bulletblack: People who have egg pokémon can hatch them either during the round/event at the end of this Round/Event but they must be of the typing in your guild, okay?

:bulletblack: One last reminder to people participating with NPCs, make sure your applications have been up updated to the brand spanking new applications, okay?

So I've got 2 quick clarification questions.

1. I've got 2 npcs but I didn't make the second till after the first event. So if I make entries for both this round my new one will just have a peasant badge and the other a merchant yes?

2. And I'm not quite sure of the civilian event for this round. Is it just going around the town as they would normally do?

1. Nope, both the characters get the Merchant badge, because some people have like 5 NPC characters, we wouldnt expect them to do that many entries etc.

2. It's wherever you want it to be, but most NPCs have shops in Town but it can be where-ever really! Use your imagination and astound us!

I would like to include another pokemon in my character's team, but I can't d=find a way to logically incorporate their meeting in the event itself... can I still get a pokemon and just say it was from somewhere else?

I did read everything but I'm still a tad confused sorry. ;A;
If your character was originally a warrior but became and NPC because they didn't make it they can still do the warriors option correct? Just making sure.

I remember that the participants are allowed to evolve their pokemon this round? Are we only allowed to catch a new pokemon after this event (if this is our Merchant badge) or are we allowed to evolve a pokemon as well?

Oh and, I'm guessing that we still have to abide by the typing of the guild? (like thieves are still limited to Poison, Dark, Bug and Ghost for their new pokemon caught)
Reply
:iconshoelesscosmonaut:
ShoelessCosmonaut Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2013
You can do both, and yes, for now you still have to abide by guild typing.

Are there/will there be any reference images of the harbor? Like, I'd like to know what the seafloor is like there, and how crowded it is with ships and boats and people and whatnot.

It's up to interpretation. Castellia has the largest and most active harbour, but Icirrus also has a decent one.

Quick! Lennith and Liz are distracted! And Portia's nowhere to be found! If you're a quick thief, you can snatch some goods off his torterra's back while he's checking out his front! Be sure to take a few prototype quick balls while you're at it!

[link] and [link] BTW. I'll post more about their distraction tomorrow :P

If we have multiple npc's, o get badges for more than one of them, will multiple entries have to be made? Or can you only get 1 badge per artist and not npc per event?

Question! Well, actually two.

1) My character, Raevyn, has a brother who will end up playing a big role in her story/development. I want to make an NPC app for him, but I'm not sure what faction to put him in. In Raevyn's back story he's a Captain of the knight's guild in Castelia, but I want him to have the freedom to silently trail after her, so would it be better for him to run off and join the rangers? I'm asking you guys because I don't know how the plots are going to unfold for the two factions, so any guidance would be helpful.

2) As a follow on to the first question, if I want her brother's pokemon to be able to evolve, should I submit an NPC event entry in addition to Raevyn's official round entry?

1. We already have a Captain of the Knights, that's William. We choose the term warriors so people of difference warrior classes could join, but its primarily knights. Sorry.

2. Since you are a competitor, you already have the peasant badge (you don't need to do the challenges for every character, just do them once/finish a round in the main competition) so you can have his pokemon to evolve during this event/round, go for it!

SteelFeathers Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh no, I didn't mean for him to be in charge of the knights specifically. I just know that there are usually more than 1 battalion/squad/whatever, and in Josef's backstory he's supposed to be leading a small group of his fellow warriors to hunt down Raevyn. I didn't intend for it to in any way interfere with the established leadership of the knights faction, but if that doesn't work it's fine, I'll change something.

Question 01: Even though this is a 'NPC' event could we also use our Competitor apps if we're still in the tournament?

Question 02: This question is aimed at the second warrior option. Because my NPC already has a career as a Blacksmith, would it be possible to go about it as having him BE commissioned by other NPC's to make armour instead?

ZannyHyper Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Question 1: Was already answered in the journal. "Competitors to the main competition can also participate in the events if they wish to do so, but it is not necessary!"

Question 2: I knew there were blacksmiths but honestly couldn't recall if they were in warrior guild or not, but never the less so long as it involves 'commissioning to create some Armour and/or weapons' in one form (you commissioning) or another (someone commissioning you) then that should be fine!
