    Announcement  Regarding the Recent Shutdown

    Hi all, You may have heard, seen, or received a carrier pigeon that the forums were down recently. As in, for a day's time plus change. Unfortunately, that’s because we were recently hacked. The site initially shut down in order to curb the threat, then to restore the forums to a state prior...

    Written Story Galar Teen Colossus

    Welcome to Colossus! This... is not a run I thought would make it to this point, to be honest with you, even after I decided to half-focus on it for NaNo recently. It's far more straightforward than any of my usual stuff, it's got way way way more battles than any run I've written for a long...

    Written Story Galar Teen Other Adventure This Is a Low

    I love Galar. The region is gorgeous, the 'mons are great, and the characters are colorful as hell with so many hints and possible complexities and themes to draw from. I've wanted to do something with them for so long, but hadn't written anything other than a couple kinda drabbly things in the...

    Opening Statement: As you’ve probably noticed, this is the second update to our rules in as many months, so in the interest of transparency we wanted to explain our reasoning behind this.

    This run came about because burnout is real. The short of it is this: I finished Contagious' draft during NaNoWriMo this past November, and then moved onto the next big project. After months of planning and going back to the drawing board and planning and drawing board and so on, I very...

    In Limbo

    Sometimes, story ideas can come from total throwaway lines in chats. This is one of those ideas, from way back in February. Basically, this was another opportunity for me to experiment, to try a different (and better) writing style than I had been accustomed to, as well as actually doing...

    Contagious [FINISHED]

    Contagious is an inspirational run, without a doubt. It tells the story of just two characters, a man and his pokemon, as they traverse the region and attempt to take down all the obstacles in their path. It's a classic "man vs. the world" story, a prime example of the universally beloved David...

    [INACTIVE]Six Plus One - A Black Nuzlocke

    So, nobody remembers me. Cool. My old Nuzlocke was crap anyways (and only reached 2 chappies). I have three other stories to work on on top of this, mind you, but I have horrible prioritization and thus will likely end up working on this quite a bit. I also got back into my Emerald Nuzlocke a...
