No trust me on this.z( *o.o*) But December 5ths wholesome, nothing involving masks happened now! Welcome to Hex Maniac quest, battles and skillchecks are variable and dependent on what is appropriate at the time.You are Gurie, you were in a coffee shop one day pitying yourself and a weird pokemon in a pikachu costume asked you to be its friend.You think you may be a magic girl now? Youp hope not, those never end well.But there is more to you then that! Like...>If you were to be honest, you aren't really a hex maniac! You just like the outfit, you are more of a... (Fill in/change pokemon type affinity)> You are quite the weaver. You are great at making costumes. (Bonus to Coordinating, if you go that route)> Your parent/s/guardian is pretty famous in the Pokemon Trainer Circuit, you got some of their skills, not a lot of them but...(This is the character creator part of what is the spirtual ancestor of mimikyu quest. However mimikyu already got what he wants so the focus is switched to a more traditional Pokemon Quest. We don't know a lot about Gurie, help make her!)

>>795539Poor mate, you almost made it till the other two showed up. Well you see, you are actually quite the seamstress! You used to make little dolls out of socks and scratch and sniff stickers and pretend they were your friends.As you got older your dolls got more and more elaborate and honestly at some point in doll crafting you either became a hex maniac or one of those Fairy Tale girls and honestly they creep you out. Like mice, and when the door is left open, social interaction, elevators...But you used to make a lot of lovely outfits for your dolls, and then yourself, and all the friends you don't have.Well you have the sack creature but it was offended when you offered to stitch it a better costume. Some people.Honestly you can't wait to take it to your family like... > Dad, some professional exorcist, apperantly ghost channeling is in your blood. Though since he moved from Kanto before you were born you doubt its relevant.> Mom, a haggard woman who got white hair early having to deal with her 19 year old daughter who spends all day in her room. Well sorry mom but you can't help it if your worthless. If anything its your fa- you aren't finishing that sentence.> Bro, see? I can do stuff! I have a friend! YES He's real? Why why are you giving me that look? Don't walk away.> Just your family in general, its awfully large, maybe that's why your such a loner?>Oh wait that's right you have no family you just live alone with your puppets! (This post helps determine your family situation, single dad, single mom, big family, live alone with sibling, or you are sad)

Tallied and writing. Just let me find some good images for the brother.
Boy will little Sebastian be glum when he realizes how far you've come since... well it's been two hours you guess. But hast makes waste, you quickly turn on your holo caster, smiling as your brothers haggard face flickers into view. Hey little brother guess who have climbed the stares to adulthood? That's right, your beautiful sister Gurie has gotten herself a companion!Your brother sighs, rubbing a eyes strained from over studying. You know just because you and a guy's eyes met doesn't mean your dating now! Hey! RUDE! No! That was like, one time and it was years ago, your charming old- Please stop giving yourself titles. The great and attractive Princess Gurie has finally gotten... A POKEMON! Reaching down you lift up Mimikyu to show to your brother.No doubt he will be amazed by your never before seen... why isn't he looking you in the eye?[Green] Dear sister, I know it's hard supporting the two of us but... that's a doll. Do you need to take a nap?[Red] No it's a real pokemon! It talks and calls itself mimikyu, come on say something!Mimikyu is hit by social AnxietyIt's super effectiveMimikyu is paralyzed and unable to move.[Green] Sis... you know I love you right? No what is with that overly sweet smile! You got a pokemon first! And it's really cool and special! No don't hang up.With a click, the holocaster on the other end hangs up. Noooooooooo.>Roll 1d100 for emotional damage

Okay, that was not the most stunning moment in your life. But when you think about it, it's really quite normal!I mean you just got a friend today, it'll be weird if your brother just accepted it. Besides this isn't the most humiliating thing you did.Oh why did you have to bring that up, now you have high school flashbacks.Anyway the day is getting over, you should head back home to... >The room in Hotel Courmarine. You are on vacation right now. (Unlock custom region for your pokemon quest, no fakemon but different trainers then normal)> Your apartment over Boutique Couture, it's easier to live near work rather then send your stuff over each time. (Unlock a lot of cash)> Your house in Aquacorde. Its a really small town, which means everyone knows each other. Which means everyone knows you. Yay. (Unlocks neighbors and rival character)(The big choice here is if you want to do a homebrew region or not. )

>>796627>Your house in Aquacorde. Its a really small town, which means everyone knows each other. Which means everyone knows you. Yay. (Unlocks neighbors and rival character)For the rivals.
The trip back to Aquacorde would normally be daunting. It's quite a trek honestly.Fortunately for you however there is a bus. Honestly otherwise how else would you even manage to get to Luminose without a pokemon? Life's convenient some times.The road trip is around a hour as rain patters overhead, night has fallen and your new pokemon sack thing has fallen asleep. Which makes sense, it must have been a busy day for the little guy... he is a guy right?You are going to have to ask it a lot of questions tomorrow, maybe even nickname it.Right now however, you are all alone. Well besides the driver but Sanchez has known you long enough to ignore you. Its time to take out your trusty....>Pen and paper. Time to sketch some clothing ideas! >Your nintendo 3ds. Yeah its a thing, people look at you funny when you have it out though... maybe cause it looks like a pokedex?> Suzie Straw! She's honestly you're real first best friend, she's your first doll and your favorite. For some reason pokemon don't attack you while you hold the doll.> Your Berry Pot. Currently you are growing a oran berry plant named Linda. You hope she grows well.(This is just your Item, like the Flute. You will hit the town tomorrow. I need to sleep before my writing suffers to obviously from it.Incidentally if anyone has good images for Gurie or the other people in the cast I will also utilize them. Feel like I may be running low.)

You pull out your trusty Sketchbook and begin your drawing.You got your sketchbook a few years ago when you started really dressing your dolls up. It occurred to you that it was easier to make the clothes from handkerchiefs and the like then go to the specialty shops and get stared at. Turns out you were actually kind of good at it, and during a competition you actually got your hat sold Boutique Tete in Santalune. Apparently some group in Aloha really like the skull look so it didn't end up a complete waste!Now you make a living selling these sketches to the various boutiques under the alias "Alluring G", granted you are not a cool and alluring beauty YET but your cousin in Dendemille is and if Passie can do it so can you!Honestly you aren't that popular because whenever you go to a boutique your shelves are empty but you are getting there! Hopefully, maybe, probably not...But this design's rather nice. Its a little rain poncho designed after pikachu.Well no its designed after a certain burlap sack that looks like pikachu sleeping next to you but you don't want to explain to people what a mimikyu is. Especially when you don't know.Finally the bus stops at your town and you tip Sanchez and pick up your little sack boy.Your house is... well honestly kind of old, your family has had it for awhile and you can sortof tell, with the way ivy creeps up the peeling paint, the faded blue mailbox outside says you got new mail!Blah blah something something, oh looks like the Pokemon Coordination League is doing a tournament this year to try to get a footing in here. Pffft who would be interested in something like that?You... >Go talk to your little brother, try to prove once and for all that your pokemon is real. (Roll 1d100, hard difficulty since mimikyu is still asleep)> Read more mail. > Go to bed (More talking will happen in the day. IC its like 1 AM)
>>799032>> Go to bed (More talking will happen in the day. IC its like 1 AM)Not the time to settle an argument while mimikyu is asleep. And our brother is probably in bed, too.
>>799032>Go to bed (More talking will happen in the day. IC its like 1 AM)
>>799032> Go to bed (More talking will happen in the day. IC its like 1 AM)
>>799032> Go to bed (More talking will happen in the day. IC its like 1 AM)We need to find Mimikyu a sleeping place! ...That or he(?) can sleep in our bed.Hehehe... Then we can say honestly that we've had company in our bed at night! Instant popularity!
You awaken to find two black eyes staring at you, a wooden stick poking your face as Mimikyu checks to see if you are dead. Which, incidentally, you aren't.You groan and slump off on the writing desk, apparently you were sketching all night, because as a cool and mature adult you stay up late.Also like a cool mature adult you are groaning on the floor about trying to slink your way to a mattress. See it is important to strategize your time, you can't get up in the morning if you are so tired, you have to maximize your energ- ooh you smell pancakes.Stumbling downstairs you see your brother all ready for school making breakfast. Oh good you are awake now. Your brother says as you walk down and take a apple out of the fruit bowl. Listen, Gurie. Your brother sets the tray of muffins by the windowsill to cool. Uh oh he's using your real name this can't be good. We need to talk. Take a seat. >Whatever I did, it was Mimikyu's fault.>You don't know what this about but this doesn't look good, hide in your room till he gives up.>Handle this like a mature adult. (Roll 1d100 )

You take a deep breath and sit down, waiting for your brother to say whatever it is he needs to say. Its probbably nothing, he probbably just wants a bigger allowance the wee- I'm kicking you out of the house. -nie. You take a deep breath. Why must I ask? Sebastian sighs. I love you sister, but when was the last time you went grocery shopping? The last time you bought clothes? Your trip to Luminoise to visit Coutre was your first time outside in months and even then you spent the first three hours of the day crying to me about how they wouldn't let you in. You nod, sure you may have been a little focused on work, but you weren't that bad right? When was the last time you cooked something that wasn't cup noodles? Do you even know how to send a letter? I am almost ten years old Gurie, I can't be here for you forever, I'll have to go on my pokemon adventure soon.And you need to go on yours now. You... >Agree. (Roll unnecessary because of previous crit)> Try to argue.> Cry. You eyes look to the table and you see Mimikyu knock a muffin to the floor with it's stick, munching on the blueberry pastry unconcerned with the drama above it. You'd think if you were friend's it would back you up.
>>799970I can't help but feel this would be funnier if we failed more... But then, I want to succeed... Uhm...>AgreeBut also> Cryand>Hug Mimikyu and show him to brother
You look outside, the front lawn has never looked so vast and menacing, yards upon yards of grass grasping at the sky like the severed hands of the dead. Oh look an absol is sitting in the front lawn staring at you.You blink and the hallucination vanishes. Relax deep breaths you can do this. "Oh... okay. I guess I'll go, outside on my adventure. And it'll be okay because Mimikyu will be there too!" You grab Mimikyu, the sack pokemon desperatly holding its muffin for dear life as you hold it up for Sebastian to see.Any moment now something will happen.Aaaany moment.Mimikyu waves after a few minutes. Causing your brother to raise his eyebrow. Okay so he is real. Alright. Well I arranged for Sycamore's assistant to visit the cafe nearby in order to provide you with a starter pokemon since I didn't know. She'll be visiting in a few hours, get your stuff ready till then. You nod, looking out into the scary outdoors. I'll go do that, I'll complete my adventure and be a cool older sister for you. You sniffle, the room getting blurry. It's really setting in that you aren't going to be seeing this house for awhile. No no, don't cry. You know that when you cry. Your brother sniffs. I, I start to... Your brother starts crying, making you cry harder and before you know it thirty minutes go by as you sob grossly to each other. I'm going to miss yoooooou! Don't, don't forget to water Linda when I'm gone. You sob out a few minutes later, backpack full of food (And one Mimikyu, who didn't like the sun) as you wave goodbye to your brother one last time, heading past the front gates of your house into your first pokemon adventure.Whether you want to or not!
And that ends this thread! Gurie as a person has been solidified as a base. How she grows will be up to you. But who is your mysterious rival? What about this assistant you have to met? Why is route 1 so godawfully small?And more importantly, when are we going to get a god damn pokemon battle?Tune in next time for another socialy anxiting episode of HEX MANIAC QUEEEEEEST!Now begins the Q&A, ask anything you want, or advise, I'll tell you anything that you either already know or something rules related. I don't know how to archive so I won't.
>>800461Can you make a twitter for those of us who don't check /qst/ every day
>>800535Must I? Fine.https://twitter.com/Mynameismimikyu
>>800461Are we going to be able to apply bonuses to our rolls at some point, due to perks or skills? Do we have stats? When we're battling, are our advantages important, or Mimikyu's? Will we the players ever heard from our adorable little Mimikyu directly again?Will we ever get another pokemon half as cute as mimikyu? The answer to that is no, of course not
>>801012So far every roll you have has been to overcome some mental hurdle of yours.Despite it not looking like it, whenever you crit you actually get a bonus on any subquential rolls on something similar. The idea being that since you did so well that one time you hit some milestone of progress and gotten better at it. Either in the process of being someone who could do such a success or because you suceeded. You do not have hard number stats, atleast not yet. If you go by Gurie your stats are all hard lows but I can guarantee you there is at least two things you do rather well.When (IF lets be honest at this point) Type advantages are important, as is any advantage you successfuly argue you have. If you believe that, given Mimikyu's amazing performance singing, that Mimikyu should be able to use attract and charm with a degree of skill you do.And fortunately for you there is a way to talk to Mimikyu again. While Mimikyu has nothing to ask 4chan he will take over whenever you and Gurie get seperated, or if you fail a roll and Mimikyu needs you to help him bail her out.As for pokemon that depends on what your starter options are, or if you ever even show up to the meeting. You might not even get the traditional options and get flying fighting rock if i can find good pokemon for it.After all, this pokemon quest isn't very traditional. Its all about me finding things that I think will keep the interest in you, audience.
>>801155It's definitely something newI'm looking forward to the next thread!
