You raise the blade, you make the change
You re-arrange me 'til I'm sane
You lock the door
And throw away the key
There's someone in my head but it's not me

Hello prospective players! I am pleased to announce an all new event coming to our little slice of the forums here, made for you creative folks out there who are itching for an excuse to play some Pokemon! Set in the strange and twisted world known as The Gala. Make your way through 32 Gyms, 16 Elites, and 4 Champions to claim your prize- Freedom.

1. If a Pokemon faints, it's dead. No Exceptions.

2. You may only catch the first encounter on any given route, with few exceptions-
- Dupes/Species Clause: If your encounter for the route is one you have already caught, you may reroll that route's encounter until you get a unique encounter.
- Shiny Clause: If you find a shiny, you can catch it if you so desire.
- Pinwheel Clause: If an area is large enough and has different Pokemon tables in different areas, you may treat these sub-areas as unique areas.

3. Pokemon caught MUST be named. Get attached to those little fellas, make it hurt more when they croak.

4. There is no rule four.

5. Leveling is restricted to the next Gym Leader's Ace Pokemon.

6. Each game will have a unique, random modifier given to each player. These modifiers will be referred to as Masquerades, and have three difficulty ratings;
Easy - Modifiers labeled "Easy" are generally saved for story-heavy modifiers, things that effect very little gameplay-wise but really shine in their creative medium.
Medium - These modifiers are more similar to your typical Nuzlocke additional rules, such as restricting certain types and/or moves.
Hard - Hard difficulty is where things get spicy~: Modifiers that are placed in this difficulty are things akin to Wedlockes, Lorelockes, or even Randomizer Runs. Not for the faint of heart!
These masquerades will be community sourced, meaning that you can submit your own masquerade to be used in the event! HOWEVER- Your masquerade difficulty that you get per run will be based on what masquerade you submit, meaning that if you decide to be an evil little pumpkin and submit a monotype masquerade, you very well may recieve it for yourself. So BE WISE.

Players will begin play in HeartGold/SoulSilver, making their way all through Johto AND Kanto, and finally ending their runs with the final battle against Red. Next they will dive into Emerald, battling through Hoenn to claim victory there. Finally, after a long and arduous journey, they will meet their last challenge; Platinum. A tall and difficult hurdle to make, one best met with grit and determination. Are you mad enough to take this challenge? Hopefully so...

The Gala is set in an equivalence of the 1920s; The gilded age, where life was good until it wasn't, where gangsters ruled the streets from hidden speakeasies and hotels that scraped the sky. Pokemon are used as not only companions but as weapons, PokeCenters are more so back alley pharmacies with shoddy tech that might work when you need it to, and the local "kingpin" is lookin' for something to even the playing field, something... Legendary.

You've been given a mysterious summons, one that addresses you by name. Whether you're a slum dog or a fat cat is up to you, but this letter promises an adventure like no other and a reward to rival Rockefeller's fortune itself, should you accept the invitation. By all means carve a slice of this world for yourself; The rest is up to you.

In order to participate in this event, you must fill out a sign up form to be considered. Regardless, you are allowed to join the Discord server and chat, even if you're not participating! Sign ups will run from October 6th until October 20th. There will be only 16 slots available, so be sure to sign up before they're all taken. The event will begin properly on October 31st at 6:00PM EST, and will run until February 28th at 11:59PM.
