Well, here I am once again to deliver a couple of updates, all of which are extremely important.

First of all, in terms of illustrations accompanying my work, I have already received offers of assistance from a few friends and these contributors will be listed below according to what they are helping me with.  Feel free to ask them questions or check out what they are doing; hopefully, they too will soon be as busy as I have been with this oversized project.  If you want to join the contributors, just leave me a message on this journal, and I will see what we can do together; you will have to submit a test image on a subject of my choosing, but if I find it to my satisfaction, you will be added as a full-time member of the team.  Don't worry too much about artistic style; I am quite open to different types of artwork, so feel free to give this a try no matter what skills you might have.

At the moment, I am currently awaiting a submission piece from a designer that I plan on assigning Ability illustrations to, but I still need artists that can complete landscapes (for Routes, Towns/Cities and Unique Places) and portraits (for Gym Leaders/Elite Four/Champions and Criminal Organizations.  I am nonetheless open to artists for any subject; with such a small team working on this at the moment, we could use all of the support possible on this. :)

Additionally, I would encourage others to help join the editing team in looking over my work with a fine-toothed comb to find minor grammatical and spelling errors; the faster I can cycle through my material and perfect it, the better.  I further have someone who has promised to help me set up a Reddit account in the near future, but I will provide more details when that plan is more fleshed-out.

Second, I have been trying to get in contact with my half-sister (who is a lawyer), but I have still remained unsuccessful; I am going to continue pursuing her advice until I run out of options.  Nonetheless, I have been giving this some thought, and I have come to two sad but perhaps silver-lined conclusions about the chances of publishing my work.  First, it is likely that this will have to be given out to people for free; non-profit seems to be the only safe way to use copyright permission.  I really don't care much about pay, to be honest; just to have my work out where people could actually read it would be a dream in and of itself.  Second, I don't think that print is going to work.  The world of Pokemon is ever-growing and expanding, and with minor updates occurring here, there and everywhere at any time, static print does not seem like a viable option.  Besides, I've written thousands of pages worth of material, which would comprise a multi-volume encyclopedia and simply be too expensive for any casual fan's tastes.

As such, I think that if things are published, they may be done in the form of an eBook.  I know that this may be a bit inconvenient, but I am under the impression that eBooks can at least be updated periodically, so that would work best with the material.  But this is something that I am totally unfamiliar with, so any feedback you have on this thought is appreciated.  I have also decided that if I cannot get copyright permission from GAME FREAK inc. to put my material out in the world, then I will likely create my own website database for the project and spread it that way.  This idea is still in the works, though, and subject to great change.

Thirdly and lastly, I have been talking to one of my new colleagues at graduate school, and he brought up the fact that getting published in a journal for paleontology would actually lend considerable credence to my scientific interpretation of the Pokemon world.  I have been planning on publishing the results of my college senior thesis, but this gives me even more reason to do so.  I'm not sure how this will go, but I'm hoping that it can be done quickly and painlessly; either way, I am definitely going to do everything I can to get that extra point of authority added to my profile as soon as possible.

For the moment, this is all, but keep your eyes peeled; I'll still be working and modifying on things for a while until more news breaks.  Until then, have a great day.

Mutitus
Patrick R. Nolan
Artist | Professional | Literature
United States
Hello; my name is Professor Wormwood, otherwise known as Mutitus.

My tale is both short and long, but I won't bore you with all the details. I originally became interested in deviantART through a chance encounter with some art that I found quite pleasing. From there, I began my journey through this marvelous place, taking on various guises and images until I finally came upon my current position, the Official Professor of Pokemon for the U.S. State of Pennsylvania.

Here, I dedicate my life to showing the world just how real Pokemon are and how fundamental they are to understanding both how the real world works and how thin the boundary between fantasy and reality truly is. I have been an active part of the Pokémon universe ever since I was a child, and it has opened my eyes to the greater laws that govern the universe and in turn where I stand as an individual in the sea of life that exists on this tiny little planet in an otherwise unexciting corner of space. I owe my incredible writing abilities and imagination to this world, and the best way I can repay my debt, as far as I figure, is to bring reality to a world where it is commonly rejected and in turn help even casual players of the series interact with their games in a way that is otherwise beyond what the creators of the series are willing to go.

Outside of here, I have just recently graduated from Mercyhurst University and will be attending Graduate School at SUNY UB; my specialty training is in geology and invertebrate paleontology, particularly in regards to Late Silurian plants, algae and fungi. I am exceptionally skilled at mathematics and all sciences in general, though I am particularly knowledgeable in the fields of geology, paleontology, astronomy and theoretical physics. I do not know if there is more to life than what we live through on the Earth we know and love, but knowing that ghosts are real, I can only hope that there is at least some sort of existence beyond life.

For now, this is all that needs to be said; if I feel like opening up, though, perhaps I will reveal more of my secrets to the world. Regardless, I will continue to serve my friends and colleagues as a vigilant nobleman and protector of the truth...now, and for all eternity.

thanks for the watch! And small question- I see that you are the professor of Pennsylvania- any chance there might be one for the state of New York?

There is, but at the moment, he is on leave, so I have agreed to take his place in the meantime.  So...yeah; I've pretty much been put in charge of two states now. :)

(OOC: This is my way of saying that I used to live in PA but just finished moving into an apartment in NY for graduate school)

Well...normally that duty is given to regional Professors...but I'll see what I can do.

What kind of starter are you looking for?
