For character creation, do we want all the characters in one thread or do we want to divide it up as "male students" and "female students" or some other manner? I know some moderators prefer one way while others prefer another.
Should we include legendaries or have a separate claims thread reserved for them or exempt them from the group entirely? My vote is for all starters, though perhaps we do it based on region? If your character is from Kanto they can choose from the Kanto starters and if they are from Johto they can choose from the Johto starters etc.
People should probably have to discuss the outcome ahead of time, otherwise, they'll just keep going, trying to win or until one person takes over and just says they win which then creates an argument. That way they have a victor planned and no one is shocked by the result, they already planned it in advance and if that causes too many problems and they can't decide then mods could step in and just say "Based on blah, blah, blah, and blah this person should win, now go have fun."In general, though battles are a tricky topic, I'm sure there are better ways of handling it than that, but it's an idea.
As for the legendaries that makes sense, kids probably wouldn't be running about with a ton of legendaries, but the odd adult may have a legendary. Perhaps we create a ratio; If the group has ten members there is one legendary claim if it has fifteen members there are two legendary claims, maybe not those exact numbers something that makes the legendaries actually rare and not something every adult just has. I don't know, I might be over complicating it.
That all sounds reasonable. Apologies for not responding sooner. I was out of the house a bunch and when I wasn’t I was watching my younger siblings.
