I find this pretty amusing because I was actually debating between starting up a PMD RP or starting something else (I went with the something else). I'm glad I did though, because this looks like it could be cool. Sheesh, I wasn't going to be joining any more RPs, but this is actually seriously tempting me.

 

As for the quiz, you could do what Super did, and implement a quiz, and then allow us to choose whether we want to go with that specific Pokemon or choose something else. For example, I'd probably want to take the quiz, but I'm not so sure I'd like to be locked into the choice if it's a Pokemon I don't particularly care for (like Cryogonal).

 

Personally, for chats, I prefer Discord. Barely go on Skype anymore except to catch up on RP chats.

 

I will say that I'm interested in how you handle the mechanics or lack thereof since PMD has entirely different ones compared to the main games, and it's very much a turn-based game. Turns affect everything from HP recovery in dungeons to hunger, so if you implement mechanics, then it could get very complicated, or at least just a lot to keep track of. I do like maps though, so if you want to use them, I'd be all for that.

 

So yeah, posting pending interest.

Dammit I thought I'd be first but then of COURSE Sethera swoops in out of nowhere...

Also I don't mind the quiz but I imagine others will and don't care either way of discord or skype seems that my discord ban I gave myself was forcibly lifted so >.>

Noting my own interest right now!

 

As far as the questions go...

 

1.) The second is definitely the easier option, though you can certainly try to set up a quiz of sorts if you really wanted to do that. Whether it's worth the effort ultimately is... Kinda iffy, to be honest. If the goal is to have players answer the questions with the sort of thing their character would say, then it seems a bit rough cause most characters would be designed with a particular outcome in mind in the first place, or it might make things a little... Iffy if someone just gets something they aren't super invested in.

 

Either one works ultimately, and I kinda like the idea of having the quiz as an option but being able to veto it if it ultimately doesn't sit well, Super Mystery Dungeon indeed introduced that and it was a nice touch.

 

2.) I think most people have moved to using Discord for RP stuff, but there might be a few who haven't yet? I dunno, the ease of having multiple channels makes it easier to sort RP stuff, so I kinda lean towards that myself. Channels for RP discussion, some for off topic stuff if rambling happens, it's cleaner than one big mess on Skype.

 

3.) Depending on how players get split up, Dungeon Maps and stuff could definitely be a good idea. If everyone goes as one group, and it's one HUGE dungeon instead of a bunch of separate floors, or if characters are split into smaller groups with smaller dungeons, either way a dungeon map could help keep players from misinterpreting the layouts of places.

 

Mechanics-wise, I'm interested with either a more turn based or free flowing type of battle system. Both have their upsides and downsides, turn based are more orderly but tend to move a lot slower, while free flowing are more active and tend to retain interest easier, but it's definitely harder to keep them organized at times.

1.)  Lemme choose dagomit.

 

2.)  Discord.  It's growing on me.

 

3.)  Play Typically.  I don't trust y'all to post in sequence, and press A to just bop someone. 

 

Also, I'm in.

Interested, I'm fine with either skype or discord. I was never much of a fan of the personality quiz though, I'd feel better picking a standard, unevolved pokemon instead of being locked to a particular one.

Thanks to everyone for expressing interest and giving opinions on the matters I presented to you. It helps a lot to know what the would be players prefer on the whole. Given the number of interested parties thus far, I will be proceeding with plans to make this into a proper OOC over the next few days.

As for the things I asked about, here are my current plans of action based on what's been said:

 

1.) I will be leaving what Pokemon everyone plays up to them. As i mentioned in the first post I would advise against incredibly large or already evolved Pokemon if your choice has evolutions. However, I don't want you all to feel restricted so if you have a good enough idea for a bigger pokemon or an already evolved one I wouldn't toss it out immediately. As the OOC comes into place and work begins on apps we can discuss things in more specifics.

2.) I'll be making a discord server for this. Once the OOC is ready I'll send everyone who has expressed interest in the thread a pm here on YCM with a link.

3.) This last one is less concrete but I do think we'll be playing things out a bit more traditionally but I will be making maps of places and things and trying to give explorations something of the mystery dungeon feel. As for other game mechanics being incorporated in some way, that will require more planning out of the plot/setting/premise on my end to determine how that'll go.

As for any others who may still be interested, please do offer your opinions as well as every voice counts.

Thanks again, moving forward's going to be exciting!

Sure, I'm interested. Definitely would rather Discord than Skype (though it looks like you've decided that already).

I'm assuming you'll be using every generation of pokemon in this, and if so, what's your opinion on alolan forms?

Sound assumption, all generations are on the table for characters and npcs.

As for the question of alolan forms I'm definitely fine with them being used. I don't think every alolan form will be from one part of the world here. Rather they'll look different depending on the location they're from. Like sandshrew in the desert look normal while some that live in the tundra would be the alolan. Once I've done the world building and have something of a semi-functional map it'll be easier to say where each alolan form might have originated.

Long story boring: every gen's in on this, alolans are fine just won't be called alolan forms in universe.

Disclaimer: would be really interested in trying to play an Onix, if we could discuss that. I'm willing to do something else but wanna try at least.

Howdy folks. I've updated the opening post with some of the OOC content. However I've yet to finish everything so as of yet I haven't changed this from an interest check to a proper OOC.

What I have added is as follows:

-Updated subtitle and logo
-the rules
-app guidelines and skeleton
-names of the main guild and hub town but no other information

I still have to add more information on the premise and how the beginning of the rp will play out and then get a lot of information on the guild and town together. But for now you all can begin work on your characters. I'll ask for the time being that you refrain from posting them, WIP or otherwise, until I've finished the process of turning this into an official OOC thread. As always, I'm open for questions. The discord server isn't ready yet either so that'll be up and running when the finalized OOC is. That'll greatly accommodate the discussion of things for characters and such. Your continued patience is appreciated!


Oh and Hakima I just wanted to address that I have seen your desires and am more than willing to make an onix character work so when more stuff's ready we can definitely talk that out.

Now to see if I know how to use the @ system at all.

Anyway, thank you all for expressing interest thus far. To you and to anyone else who may see the RP and be interested I say, welcome to the formal OOC thread!

Characters, both work in progress and finished, may be posted whenever. The Discord server link has been included as well as a touch more information on the premise and information on the guild and hub town. So if you've got questions you've been waiting on the chat for now's the time to get in there and get 'em asked.

So the app isn't... 100% done technically. I might expand the personality a bit more and I'll make a note if I do, and there is technically a 4th move slot but I don't have a move to put there unless I break into TMs or Egg moves, neither of which really make sense with the RP. Maybe Lucky Chant, depending on what the upper limit for moves is...

Name: Karliah
Gender: Female
Species: Salandit

tHfRwqL.jpg
The orange strip down her back and tail is more of an indigo blue color.

Personality: Karliah can be rather quiet at times, choosing to either let others talk first before voicing her opinion or to just remain quiet. She only ever forms a complete sentence or a full conversation with, and only with, those she truly can trust. Because of this, she rarely ever talks to someone new to her and prefers to keep her distance as best as she can. This paints a picture of being a complete loner, but in actuality she does want companionship, only that she wants a true friend that she can trust completely and who won't betray her or leave her behind.

Outside of her quiet nature, Karliah can't stand the sight of someone being bullied or picked on. She believes that the strong should never harm the weak, but protect them instead. The sight of someone abusing their power ticks Karliah off, to the point where she will confront the person and call them out on their abuse. Even if she would be struck down in the process, she'd get back up and keep on the assault until she proves her point.[/hider]
Pokemon Biography: Karliah is a newcomer to the pokemon and is understandably in a confused state (the feeling, not the status effect -w-). She's roaming around Thicket Town hoping to find answers as to why she's here in this new world.

Human Biography: As a human, Karliah was orphaned at a young age and had to beg and scavenge in Saffron City to make a living. She had made friends with a few wild pokemon, who offered her food in the form of berries. These wild pokemon included a Growlithe who would cuddle next to her at night to keep her warm. Eventually, she and the Growlithe were taken in by another human, a figure she affectionately refered to as Big Sis.

Core Memory: Karliah remembers being an orphan and having to fend for herself just to survive.

Moves: Ember, Smog, Protect, Return
Z-Move: N/A
Ability: Corrosion

Here's my app, finally. Life has not been kind for me but I'm finally done.
