Skye Prower added a topic in Character ChestSkye CrystalDespite being role-playing for over a decade, and Sonic Role-Playing for around half that time, one thing I don't have is a definitive Sonic OC for myself. Skye Prower has sorta taken that role. But I felt it was time to have someone else, so here we are. Still keeping the first name of Skye though!
I have had art done of her, but this version isn't quite finished yet. And as well as the profile, I've even done a script for an introduction adventure for her.
Name: Skye Crystal
Species: Fox-Lynx Hybrid
Skye is slightly shorter than the average Mobian, standing between the fox and lynx of her mixed heritage. She mostly resembles a fox, however she has the same face markings as a lynx. Her ears are longer and thinner than a foxes (or thicker and shorter than a lynx’s) and end with the same dark tufts as a lynx.
Skye’s fur is a gingery orange colour, while her hair is a slight shade darker and redder. It reaches down around her mid back, mostly straight with a very slight wave in it. She has a single thick front fringe, though it’s slightly messy and sticks out in bits. As she usually has her goggles pushed up on her forehead, this keeps her fringe off her face.
Her eyes are a turquoise colour, as are the crystals, force fields, and her magic.
As well as her gauntlets, goggles, satchel and quiver, she wears a dull green jacket with a darker green trim. Usually open, but closed depending on the weather (and the censors!). She also wears a pair of shorts in the same colours. Skye goes barefoot.
Powers/Abilities: Skye’s abilities, such as speed, agility, resilience, intelligence etc, are all above the Mobian average, but not by any significant degree (With the exception of her common sense which can be lacking). For example, if abilities were rated on a 1 to 10 scale, with 3 being average, and 9 being say Tails’ IQ or Mighty’s strength, Skye would have 4 and 5’s across the board.
Slight Magic – Skye has a very slight magical talent, able to manipulate it to create a few small sparks, but that’s about it. She could maybe create a constant light if she focused.
Archery – She is a decent shot with a bow, but certainly no Rob O’Hedge/Legolas/Hawkeye etc
Close combat– With her natural abilities and her gauntlets, Skye is capable in close combat. But she lacks any real skill in fighting, so a skilled opponent would not find her a challenging foe.
Artificer – Her main ability. Skye is able to use prepared crystals to store some of her magical energy, and then use these crystals as a power source. And she became quite skilled in building small/medium inventions using these power crystals. However, being magic, the power can be unstable, and these devices could have side effects, have a chance of overloading, or simply not work. The exception being the devices that produce energy fields, as Skye has now worked out (most of) the kinks in those systems. Because of the unusual power source, and the fact that Skye doesn’t actually know the basics of electronics, these inventions of hers would not work with any regular power source.
Skye’s goal is to one day be able to build robots of her own, though she currently lacks the skills to do so,
Weapons/Equipment: Bow – Her main weapon. This bow has an energy forcefield ‘string’ and can either create its own force bolts (which loose power the further they travel) or can fire regular arrows if needed.
Gauntlets – Skye wears a pair of gauntlets, each capable of projecting force fields of various shapes, allowing her to create shields or simple weapons. They also have a built in grapple hook. (I’m a sucker for grapple hooks!)
Goggles – A pair of goggles used when Skye’s working on her inventions, which she wears pushed up on her forehead the rest of the time. While they are regular work goggles, the right side has an attached lens which can fold down to assist Skye in aiming her bow.
Multitool – A penknife by any other name, which can project small forcefields to act a blades, screwdrivers, clippers, files, etc etc.
Satchel – A simple tool satchel, which hold Skye’s tools, spare power crystals, and a few other gadgets. Most are kept inside the satchel, but her Multitool is slotted into a pocket on the side.
Quiver - A small quiver worn on her back with a handful of arrows that have different specialised heads.
Personality: At first Skye is very shy and awkward around those she doesn’t know. However, around her friends, on her own, or if anyone shows even the slightest interest in her inventions, Skye is very enthusiastic and talkative. She is also slightly naive about how the world operates.
This also extends into wanting to be a hero like others, but her enthusiasm can get her into trouble. However, she will defer to those who are more knowledgeable or skilled than she is. The exception is regarding her inventions and experiments, where she will be pretty stubborn about what she is doing, moreso if there is any implication that what she is doing is risky.
While she enjoys puzzles, Skye can miss an obvious solution while trying to work on a more complex one. She can also panic if out of her depth without someone to help her.
She also has a slight temper, which is under control most of the time. Unless someone makes fun of her inventions.
Background: (Note – This background is designed to be flexible enough to fit into any version of the Sonic franchise, though it may result in a few tweaks)
Skye’s home was an isolated forest village, where the inhabitants had chosen to live a ‘technology free’, almost tribal lifestyle. They weren’t isolationists, at least, prior to Dr Robotnik/Eggman, and would welcome in other Mobian’s who wished to live a technology free life. Most of the inhabitants were Lynx’s, but many other species were present.
While they don’t have any technology, many of the Lynx’s have developed a talent for magic. A unique aspect her is the storage of magic in small prepared crystals, almost creating magical batteries. These tend to be used to enhance spellcasting, or simple illumination.
Skye was born with a slight aptitude for magic. She could fill a crystal, and cast a simple light spell, but that was it. But what Skye was drawn to were the bits and pieces of technology that sometimes were found around the village. They were almost always broken, but Skye developed a fascination for them, wondering how they worked. At first, the villagers allowed her to collect them, seeing it as a phase she would grow out of.
But Skye didn’t. She spend more and more time with her collection, taking them apart and trying to understand how they worked and put them back together. Then one day, she realised what was missing was a power source. She charged up a crystal, and with some work, was able to get the device running again.
Proud of what she had done, Skye showed it to the village.
Only to be cast out, for using the village’s technique to fuel the very technology they despised.
Now, Skye has been left on her own to wander, and to build. She has managed to create more devices, and she is starting to learn about the wider world she’s found herself in. The one thing she has learned is about the various heroes who help defend the world from evil, like something from the campfire stories she listen too as a child. And Skye wants to be one of them.

Skye Prower added a topic in Role-Playing GamesPokemon: Drake and WyvernPokemon Research Centre – Scabbard Town
Steam rose from the warm tea as Professor Alistair Pine picked up the mug and heading towards the glass fronted conference room of the Pokemon Research Centre. With this being the day of his tenth anniversary as a professor in Scabbard Town, some joker had left a happy birthday card in his office. But as the badge with the card showed a Squirtle, his own starter years ago, he was wearing it with pride on his lab coat.
Through the windows of the room he could already see the pink haired Nurse Joy setting up the room. She looked up a little surprised as Pine entered.
“Professor? You’re up early!” she commented, looking at the clock above his head which showed a few minutes past 6am
“And you think our new group of trainers won’t be?” asked Pine with a smile. “They might not be due till ten but believe me they’ll arrive early so we better be ready for them.” He looked around the room appraisingly. “But you seem to be well head of me Nurse. By the way, the kettles just boiled in the canteen if you would like a cup of tea.”
“Thank you, I’d love one,” replied the Nurse. “Don’t go yourself, I’ll get it.”
“If you insist,” Pine replied. “I’ll get the cases out.” Joy nodded and left the room while the Professor began checking the cases labelled with the names of the new trainers. Each contained a Pokedex, half a dozen empty Pokeballs, and their starter Pokemon inside a Pokeball, except for a couple who were bringing their own starters.. As he looked through, the Professors eyebrow rose and he turned to look at the returning Nurse Joy, tea cup in hand.
“Nurse, is there a mistake with the shipment? There seems to be a lot of Fennekins here!” asked the Professor, sorting through the cases.
“I’ve double checked the manifests,” replied Nurse Joy, taking a sip from her cup. “Fennekins seem to be popular with this group of trainers.”
“I see. I suppose these trends do come and go. Like two years ago when every starter chosen was from the Kanto Region,” mused the Professor with a chuckle, though something seemed to be bothering the Nurse.
“Professor? Maybe… we should postpone this group. There are those stories of Trainers going missing…” began Joy, but the Professor gave a small wave.
“You’re worrying too much. Trainers often go off the beaten path, and you know how unreliable the holocaster signal is in Ganlo. It’s not the first time it happened, nor the last,” said the Professor reassuringly. He took a final gulp of tea and put his empty mug on the desk. “I’m going to check on the training facilities. Give me a call if any of our young… or old newcomers arrive. With a nod he left the room, humming happily to himself as a small Lillipup came out of his office and started walking at his heels.
Day Care Centre – Scabbard Town
“C’mon Amber, hurry up!” called Kimberly, more commonly known as Kimi, to her twin sister. She skated in circles around her sister, her ginger hair flapping behind her in a ponytail. Amber however looked nervous, clutching the Eevee egg which had been gifted to her. The two girls were at the end of the road junction which led to their parents Day Care centre, a short way outside Scabbard Town.
The twins had already said their goodbyes, but their older brother had followed them to the road end, both to see them off and to check on the pair of Ponyta’s the Day Care was looking after.
“Do… do you really think I should do this Michael?” Amber asked her brother, looking up at him.
“Of course you should. I never wanted to do anything but work here, but going was still a great experience, and one you girls should really do!” Michael replied with certainty.
“I still don’t get why you didn’t at least TRY to join the League Championship. You had all your badges,” Kimi shot back, coming to a halt.
“Like I said, that’s not where my interests lay. I didn’t want to be stuck with a title I’d need to defend all the time,” he retorted with a smile.
“Seems silly to me!” shrugged Kimi. “But let’s get started.” She started skating away.
“KIMI!” called Amber, but her sister was already on her way. She gave one last look towards her brother.
“Don’t worry Amber, your egg will hatch in time,” said Michael anticipating his sister question. “And you’ll have fun, I know it.”
Amber gave a weak smile, then ran after her sister, calling her name.

Skye Prower added a topic in RP OOC SectionPokemon: Drake and Wyvern OOC*Insert your favourite Pokemon theme here*
We are now returning to the world of Pokemon! This is a reboot of the previous Pokemon RP, but given how detailed the region was that Dylan and I created, we didn't want it to go to waste.
Welcome back to Ganlo!
An island Region located just north of Kalos, Ganlo used to be a major power in the world. But for over half a century now it influence has dropped to almost being a forgotten relic. The mind-set of the nation sort of reflects this, as the Region does focus a lot on its history, such as its towns being named after ancient weapons, and its gyms often located inside historical structures.
According to legends, Ganlo was once ruled by a race of Dragon Pokemon who enslaved the humans and weaker pokemon before they were overthrown, and likely driven to extinction. After this, the people of Ganlo began spreading out and forming an Empire.
There are two unique aspect about the Pokemon in Ganlo. The first being there are no fixed starters for the Region. Instead, when potential Trainers register, they may select a starter from another region and have it shipped in, or they may take one of their own Pokémon, if they have any.
Second, there are no known unique Pokemon species in Ganlo. Any that were unique have either been spread to other regions long ago and found there as well, or are so rare to be close to extinction and never seen. Conversely, there are hardly any (currently known) Pokemon Species not found in Ganlo. With the exception of the Alohan region, as the climate of Ganlo isn’t best suited to the more tropical Pokemon.
The population of Ganlo are also very keen on Contests. One vs one contests are almost as common as battles (with another trainer asked to judge). And every town and city has contests every Saturday, though only the contests in the cities can hand out official Award Ribbons.
Ganlo is split into four sub-regions. North, South, Central, and Island. Transport is manly handled by the extensive train service. Every town and city has a train station and routes to all nearby settlements.
As well as the usual RP rules, there are a few more given the setting. I have tried to keep then to a minimum as much as possible.
First, this resource will be INVALUABLE! http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Main_Page

The Legendary Dragons
In the ancient History of Ganlo’s Dragon Wars, three powerful dragons are named as siding with humanity, and eventually convincing others to do so; Galeas, Lamhcalad and Gauvain. Some sources say they were dragons who felt pity on the enslaved humans. Others that they were humans who found a way to become dragons themselves. Their fate is equally conflicted. Most legends say they were slain when the humans turned on them after the war, but some accounts talk of them fleeing Ganlo, and others hiding somewhere within its lands.
(These Legendries can be claimed like any other, but WILL tie you into the metaplot of the RP, so can’t be used freely until a certain point in the story)

Amber on the other hand wanted to stay at the Centre, but she didn’t want to leave her sister either. And when her parents pointed out that going out in the world might help her learn more about Eevees and other Pokémon, she decided to go along too.
