The Well by purplekecleon The Well by purplekecleon
The Well is the most notable landmark in Gambitville. It rests in the center of the town, and has for as long as anyone can remember. Actually... it was said that the well was there long before the town's establishment, as well - however many decades or centuries that was.

The well is made up of pieces of solid gold, with large, carved rubies adorning the eyes of the... what is it, exactly?

You'd think criminals and thieves would've vandalized this piece of the town by now - and you'd have been right... if they didn't all stop in the middle. Any attempts at destroying or altering or removing pieces from this well have been met with failure. Failure comes in many forms. Sometimes, intense headaches will befall the vandalizing-would-be, and other times, the potential-criminal will forget what they were doing right in the middle of the act.

For a while now, Pokemon of Gambitville have made mental notice of newcomers who enter saloons already with a splitting headache - they're usually suspected of having tried to steal from the well.

If you can get over the menacing appearance, however, it's pretty reliable as a source of water. Underneath run a deep system of underwater rivers and caves, nicknamed "the Styx," as Pokemon who fall into the well rarely return.

There's supposedly an old, abandoned boat down there, and has been for ages.

In honesty, I think that it would be fairly intriguing to roleplay in such a line of thought, would you be open to requests to do so?

First click the PMD-Explorers icon on the right. That's the group's main page, over to the left you can join the group. This is the link to the FAQ: [link]

Read that through so you understand. After that, go back to the main page and scroll down a bit and you should see the blank Application forms, for both writing and drawing. Either copy the PSD/PNG or copy the text form and fill it out to the specifications talked about on the Examples given, and you're done.

After that, just go into the group Gallery from the main page, and submit your form to the proper folder. It should say something like Any Rank. Submit it to the rank you think your work is at.

You good Sir and/or Madame, have just made one of my favorite legendaries even more bad-ass than it was prior to my finding this.

You deserve the highest of fives and a Lllama.

normally if a thing falls on a well and dies the water is contaminated and you can't drink anymore from there for a long time... that's why wells have walls on them.
Anyway after being a nitpicky fuck I will say that I really dig the design!

that is true, but this well was never originally intended for drinking by the first pokemon who put it there!

I just hope the mythological referencing will continue forever and ever, there is genuine joy when you recognize some greek term and suddenly you see the foreshadowing comming.

I've always been creeped out by Origin Giratina, and this is no exception. It's not a bad drawing or anything; it's incredible. It's just one of those drawing that amaze you and creep you out at the same time. Like that one drawing of the guy screaming with his hands on his face. I think it's called "Screamer."

Good job, nonetheless.

Oh jeez, I read the June tasks before I saw this.

"Hm, I Timmy in the well mission, huh? That could be interesting. Just a normal stone well leading to some waterlogged catacombs, right?"
*Looks at image*
"...ooooorr it could be the very entrance to hell/distortion world."
*gulp*
