Hey, Coolice23. How have you been the last few months? I apologize if I have no recent updates of my RSE Recent Happenings. I have been too busy recently to play Emerald, but I am still writing fan fiction.
Play Sapphire. Real games are more advisable than emulators.
I use an emulator for Emerald, but only because I own the game and the internal battery died, so technically since I already paid for it (and have a receipt) it is not illegal for me to play the game on my computer.
Writing is one of my personal passions, so it comes naturally to me.
A club for detailed recent happenings? I am not sure that that would work out, because quite a few people do post quite a bit in the happenings thread already, and since game happenings are meant to be there and nowhere else, I am not sure that the moderators would allow a club for that purpose.
Maybe what I will do once I am done with Emerald, I will write a fan fiction story based on my journey, and then post it, which would likely make others want to do the same.
Well, as soon as I started writing a fan fiction with the hero not unlike me and from Lavaridge Town (began last December), Hoenn has been my favourite region, and I love to play Emerald and document everything. I think the full swing of documentation happened once I got to the Mauville-Lavaridge part, and caught and trained Torkoal and Swablu, and had such a tight battle with Flannery that despite having already played Emerald twice the game came alive again.
I have been absolutely weighed down with university, writing a Pokemon-based story and other life issues right now. I have been working on the R/S/E happenings, and a large update is in the works, but I have final exams soon. Expect an update in mid-to-late December.
I intend to a playthrough of HG/SS when I get the game, whenever that may be next Spring or Summer.
