    Trainers every day set forth to be the best. Becoming a Master Trainer is the dream of children, teens, and adults alike across the globe, but it is no easy task. In the distant island continent of Crescent Isle, Pokemon are everywhere. I truly is a trainer paradise. Novices and Masters alike flock to the island every day to further their skills. With your travel visa in hand, and a dream carried in your heart, your journey to becoming a Pokemon Master is soon to unfold. But with twists around every corner, and a darkness secretly looming over the streets, how will your story be told?


    Pokemon Master Chronicles will take you to new lands in the Pokemon World. While familiar in feel, this isn't the Pokemon game you see every day. Master Chronicles places you directly into a living, breathing world where trainers flourish, Pokemon are abundant, and exploring is a popular hobby.


    Go in to the open world environments of Crescent Isle, a continent completely separated from the main series regions. Meet tons of new trainers, all of which are carrying on with their own goals (which means that just because you met someone on a route doesn't mean you will always find them there, they have lives too). Experience multiple player-driven storylines that help shape the feel of Crescent Isle, the stories molding around the choices you make during your adventure. Find hundreds of different Pokemon as you explore the nooks and crannies of the map during your explorations, finding new and exciting things as you go such as deserted ruins, a bustling casino, an ancient labyrinth, a mysterious abandoned monastery, and much, much more!


    This isn't the Pokemon you grew up on... This is Master Chronicles.



    RECRUITMENT DRIVE

    Master Chronicles is just getting into the early development phase. As you may tell, this is a rather large project, one that will involve a great deal of work and time. While I am very used to taking on large projects from time to time, it always helps to have more than one person working towards the same goal. Not only can more people work harder as a group, getting it done quicker, it also just helps to have people to bounce ideas off of, get feedback from, and sometimes just to help keep company during the long hours. What I come before you now for is similar to what I stated, I would like put it out there that I would be glad to accept and and all help on this project. And while I will accept any help given, there are a few different 'positions' I would like to try and fill if I could.


    Below, I will list some different jobs I could use help with, each given a rating based on how important at this time that it is (1 being not important, 10 being the most important). Feel free to offer a hand, but know that some positions have requirements before I will accept. But on to the list.


    Basic Graphic Artists - Important (8/10)


    Description - I need people who knows their way around a graphic program like GIMP, PaintNet, or photoshop at least enough to place single tiles into a tilesheet. Must have a basic knowledge of how said tiles line-up as well (we dont want buildings and stuff to collide in-game too much).


    I could use more than one in this category. The more, the merrier really!


    Story Designers - Moderately Important (6-7/20)


    Description - These are the ones who sit down with me and just work out stories. Be it working on the main storyline, or putting together and elaborate side-quest, a good story is always important. No major requirements here, just dont expect to keep the position if you either A) Dont contribute during team discussions on the matter, and B) you consistently shoot down other ideas if they aren't your own.


    I could use more than one here as well.


    Advanced Artists - Less Important Currently (4-5/10 at this time)(Subject to change)


    Description - This is the big time here. What fall under this category are people who can make new tiles (even if old tiles are recycled for it), can make new character sprites, and so on. We aren't looking to making you paint the Mona Lisa brushstroke by brushstroke, I would just really love to have more custom content for the game. Every little bit helps.


    Scripter - Moderately Important (6-8)


    Need to have knowlege and experience with RGSS (RGSS1 to be exact, rpg maker xp is the engine being used). The system is already developed, and many extras are already in place. What I need is some editing of existing scripts, some additions to existing scripts, and a few new systems to compliment systems already in place. I'm not looking to have a Scripter write massive, complicated systems; I just need smaller, more numerous additions to what is there.


    Mappers - optional


    I won't be taking a ton of mappers, simply because we don't need too much conflicting map styles. But those who apply MUST have an idea on how to go about mapping in the pokemon style. Pokemon games have their maps with very specific layouts, and that style is to be replicated here. If you are to apply, you must own rpg maker xp, and you must show off an example map of what you can do (just use whatever tiles). If you do not own xp and would still like to apply, we may be able to work something out and still let you help. This will be on a case by case basis.


    More Jobs to Come!


    Feel free to mention her that you would like to help, and what you are good at, and I will find a way that you can be art of the team.


    Well, that is it for today everyone! i hope to be able to bring you all good news soon on game progress, so look forward to that! You all have a wonderful day and a terrific week!

    While I do not currently have work for an eventer, it is very well possible I may have some work for you in the near future. Feel free to stick around and be a part of our game here! I will absolutely put you down as a team member. :)

    On another note, adding some jobs to the list. Make sure to check them out.

    I would happily volunteer my services as a graphic designer or as part of the story team. Just PM me with what sort of things you'd like to see, and I'll provide examples of my work.

    I could help with the story designer position. I'm a writer and can also help with spelling and grammar. I'm also willing to help with testing.

    Okay, so TechnicalFox, captainproton, and magnaangemon01 are all on the team for what ou guys applied for. Welcome to the Master Chronicles production team! 
     
    While things are a bit slow right now, within the next day or so, I will be sending out a message for everyone on what our first steps are. I have projects for graphical people right away, and projects for everyone else will come up in due time. I may take magnaangemon01 into another conversation so that we may brainstorm some story ideas here and there, but that will be sometime this week. 

    On a side note, as I have some people from Reddit and PokeCommunity that want in as well, I may make us a way to all communicate together very easily so that we are all connected. I'll update you guys on that a bit later though. I have to settle some final details first.

    I use Facebook. Just know I work 5pm-12pm US Eastern Standard time tomorrow and Sunday so I will be unavailable at those times. If you contact me before that, I will reply when I can. Going to bed as it's 2:25am my time. And thank you for adding me. I hope not to let you down.

    I probably won't use facebook much due to how multiple people in the group probably dont want personal information involved, but what I have planned will let us work at our own pace with a pre-set list of tasks. As we finish up something, we check it off so nobody else does it as well, and we move on. Once we get started, it will run smoothly, I promise. And we will easily be able to keep in touch, no matter our schedules. We will have a meeting place for that, so dont worry. :)

    I wish to pledge my services to this project. I have already stated what I believe I can do in the Pokemon Corner thread, but for clarity's sake I shall reiterate it here. I am willing and able to assist in the basic graphic department, and desire to assist in the story development process. I have a few ideas for the story and sidequests in a rough format already, and am eager to get them out into the open. I also specialize in creating characters, which is personally my favorite part of the plot development process. This would be my first time working in a team and creating a product for the public, so please excuse any accidental unprofessionalism on my part. I look forward to working with you all.

    I don't think you will need to watch any of the shows to have to participate. The shows and the games tend to be very different in terms of content. Maybe just brush up on the games' storylines, even though that isn't crazy important either

    I played red and yellow when they first came out. But I'll brush up on the stories. Got a good link I should look at or any suggestions?

    I was just thinking that Etherpad might work. There's a chatbox beside the document while we work on the story.

    Alright, the message has gone out to the first group and work has begun. On that note, we are still looking for more members. AS I mentioned before, the more the merrier. Feel free to sign up with us and see what we are about!

    Hello there, I am DarkOdin. I would like to apply for Story Designer and/or Mapper. Especially for mapping. I have played tons upon tons of Pokemon games, and love the series quite much. Drop me a PM if you're interested in having me, and we can discuss more. :)

    Just wanted to say welcome to the team Odin! :)

    So far, the team is growing steadily, but we could still really use more graphic artists if any want to help. Also, in desperate need of a spriter or pixel artist. Mainly need someone who can sprite off of a base (the base is there, so we can make characters using it).

    I've played the majority of the main, handheld, Pokemon games (up to White 2, which I never finished). As well as many of the Gamecube games, and I still have some love for the series.

    If possible, I'd like to apply for Story Designer but I can also do some general eventing and data entry stuff if needed.

    Sadly, I'm not readily available Mon - Thur (8 am - 4 pm, 8 am - 1 pm on Thur). I am, otherwise, available at any reasonable time.
