    Just Another RANDOM Lorelocke (Jarl) - A written log/screenshot-light HeartGold Randomized Lorelocke - Part 3 is up! 14/8/22

    Greetings dear readers! Welcome to my new run, "Just Another RANDOM Lorelocke", or "Jarl" as the cool cats who hang around the TikTok water fountain call it, or whatever you young folks do these days, I truly have no idea any more. If you are here in the hopes for either the story run I've been...

    Johto Written Log General The Atrocity (Chapters 8 ad 9 are up, in which a new poll starts and I make a horrible mistake)

    ...I may have officially gone too far here. You all know RubyClaw's Lorelocke and my own bootleg take on it, the Datalocke. And you probably also know Spectacles' run The Monstrosity, which combines not one, not two, but three different nuzlocke rulesets to create the ultimate BDSP challenge...

    Oh look at that, i started another nuzlocke Anyway a bit of a warning for a bit of swearing, not very often though. Also body horror, a bit of body horror. Anyway the rules! And with that, onto the story Cw: Slight body horror Herakles, huh? Fitting. "Well Herakles, we're going to...

    Written Story Sinnoh Mature Their Spirits Cry for Vengeance: A Brilliant Diamond Lorelocke.

    Well, I know I should be working on other runs, but since my old grandfather's computer is what I have (and given that Beware, We Sting and Translucent Legends are on temporary hiatus - as well as my Dragon Quest story and my blog with Pokemon hacks - given that my computer's battery flat out...

    It's been a while, huh? I haven't posted anything run-related here in a while. But hey, here I am, ready to play through a game with possibly the craziest ruleset I've ever had the will to put myself through. Let's just skip the formalities and get it started, yeah? Yeah, bit of a doozy, I...

    Screenshot Sinnoh Written Log The Monstrosity- Chapter 18 is up early! 8/11/22

    So! Since everyone wants to see me suffer (including myself), this run will be a log of my playthrough of Brilliant Diamond using 3 unique rulesets- my own Doc-locke and Super Naturelocke rulesets, and @RubyClaw 's lorelocke rules. This is a sort of accompanyment to The Hippocratic Oath, my...

    Dimming Diamond (A Semi-Blind Screenshot Advanced Lorelocke of Brilliant Diamond!) Hi everyone! It’s been way too long since I posted a run here, and I admit I really missed sharing my adventures with you guys. As some of you might know I have a habit of Nuzlocking blindly every new pokemon...

    Updates between training sessions. You see, it all started when Bowser got interested in the lorelocke ruleset and thought Johto, the region in Pokemon that seems to be the most “old-fashioned” or in-tune with its legends, would be an appropriate setting… [/TD] [/TR] Cragley (Route 46)...

    Alola Written Log General Alola Exp-lore-ation

    In recognition of Pokémon’s 25th anniversary/because I want to, I’m starting a Nuzlocke with a ruleset that celebrates Pokémon and what they are—the Lorelocke, created by @RubyClaw! For those who are unfamiliar with the concept and/or too lazy to click the link in the last sentence, the gist of...

    Kalos Written Log Commentary The Totally Fascinating Lore of Kalos... er, Kanto...: Zorua3's analysis-filled Kanto-only Lorelocke of Pokemon X

    So, I was wandering through Google Docs looking for a Fanfiction I wrote way back when, and I found... this. Apparently I started a Lorelocke, writing it as I played through, with the intention of posting it once I'd finished in order to avoid abandoning it mid-thread as I've done with the other...

    Hello everyone. Name’s Akumu and I love Pokémon. I also love challenges. So naturally I want to do a Nuzlocke, but I don’t particularly like the basic version. I definitely appreciate it and love watching them. It’s just, well its not really for me. I love the variants. Reading about the...

    Yes, I've decided to do something crazy: a Lorelocke! Thanks to @RubyClaw , @mewstein , and @Spectacles for making - and helping with - this monster of a ruleset. I admire the perseverance it took to make it, and I've decided to do something that hasn't, to my knowledge, been done yet: a...

    Written Story Kalos Written Log Teen Mon Secrets of Aetherai: Lines Crossed (INCOMPLETE)

    So @RubyClaw made this awesome lorelocke ruleset, and I've been playing several different games using this ruleset. But then sometime when I was working on a recent chapter of Ori's Gift, I started delving into the lore of an Unova/Kalos/Galar war that's heavily based off of The Ruin Maniac...
