Digimon, Digital Monsters, Digimon are the champions! Digimon, a franchise that took the world by storm. The show inspired games and merchandise, and there are few children who don't know the name Digimon. Four years have passed since the start of this phenomenon, and its popularity has only grown. But little do people know, that Digimon are all too real. In the past month, there have been reports of strange creatures prowling the streets at night. Reports of property damage with no conclusive evidence as to what made it. Adults claim it's animals, but children...children know better. It's monsters, and a select few individuals will have the privilege of calling one of those monsters...partner.

It's time to begin our Digimon adventure! A few things to keep in mind before we start. -Of course follow all rules that Iwaku itself wants you to uphold. -No OOC comments in the IC please. -No one-liners please (nothing against them, I just don't like them in my rps) and only post once a day at most, because I can only post once a day at most. No need to post every day, but try to post at least once a week. -If you take too long to post without informing me beforehand, I will label you inactive. Come back and I will mark you active again. However three strikes and you're out. -Feel free to talk about anything and everything in the OOC, but please color anything rp related in yellow so people know what they need to read (and I will do the same). (if yellow is a hard color to read, please let me know and I'll change it to something else) Everyone should already have the character sheet, but I'll repost it anyway just to make sure. Character Sheet (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Character Sheet (open) Character Sheet (close) Human Name: (first and last, Japanese unless "foreign") Age: (Can range from 10-18, everyone should still be in school *note that there are only 3 years of high school instead of 4 in Japan) Gender: (self-explanatory) Appearance: (Pictures and/or words, however Height, Eye color, and HaircolorMUST be in words) Personality: (This one is important. The more you can share about your character, the better!) History: (Doesn't have to be too in-depth, but the more the better) Likes/Dislikes: (can be as short or extensive as you'd like) Fear/Paranoia: (Everyone has something, whether it's physical or mental) Digimon Digimon Partner and Its Digivolutions: (must have from Rookie onward, but feel free to add the Baby and In-Training too) Natural State: (declare which Digivolution your partner is naturally in outside of battle. It can either be the In-Training or Rookie Rank. In-Training Digimon will automatically Digivolve to Rookie as soon as they enter battle with a Stray Digimon) Digimon Gender: (I know, Digimon technically don't have genders, but this will determine what pronoun we use to address your partner because most Digimon do have masculine or feminine voices. Digimon's gender doesn't have to be the same as your human's gender) Digimon's Personality: (yes, Digimon have their own personalities. Usually Digimon have at least one trait that compliments their human partners) Digivice Color: (try to have different colors, or at the very least different shades) This is what they look like, along with the card used to digivolve your partner. (this is actually a picture of my digivice and card...that I just took today...yes I still have it...don't judge me) Eyewear: (when a stray Digimon appears, a fog surrounds the area. Everyone will need some kind of eye protection to get through the fog into the clearing in the middle. The show used sunglasses and goggles) *How you met your Digimon: (this is optional and will help me decide whether everyone will get their Digimon in the same way or if we have different ways.) I want to give you guys as much freedom in battles as I can, but I do have three rules. Battle Rules (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Battle Rules (open) Battle Rules (close) 1) Please don't be that guy who always makes the finishing blow. Give others a chance to shine too! 2) To begin with, no one can digivolve passed Rookie rank. When your "episode" comes, I will bestow upon your character the Matrix Digivolution card that will allow your Digimon to get to Champion. Once you've reached Champion, you can always Digivolve to Champion after that. There will be a similar event to reach Ultimate and Mega. I may also ask people to hold off Digivolving during a battle to spice things up! (depending on the situation, there may be dark digivolutions, it's possible that your Digimon may not be able to Digivolve at all for some reason, and other possible surprises!) *Note: If you'd like to discuss how you want your "episode" to go, please feel free to PM me! I'd be happy to push the rp in a direction that could make your episode fit with your character! (I may also split the party or double up "episodes" since we do have a larger cast than I was expecting) 3) I am going to allow everyone to Digi-Modify (when your character uses a card from the card game to boost your Digimon's abilities or give them another Digimon's attack). However! To make it easier for me, I'm only going to allow -> these cards <- Also, you can only use 1 card once per battle (excluding the Matrix Digivolution card that you always must use to Digivolve your Digimon). After you use a card, you cannot use it ever again. (so people can't do something like spam Hyper Wing to get wings for every battle) You guys can choose to never use the cards either, I just wanted to give you guys the option to help spice up battles. IC-wise, the rp will begin on a Saturday night (during the school year) and everyone will receive the same text message. (I'm taking a page from Season 4) Either later on that night or the following day on Sunday, you can meet your Digi-partner. That Sunday night...the first battle will begin! (for those who may not have an idea on how they want to meet their partner, shoot me a pm and I can help brainstorm) Lastly, because we have a total of 9 players (including myself I think...for some reason I can't seem to count today) I was thinking of splitting the group into three. However, I want your guys' opinions! From my experience, splitting the group comes with as many problems as having a large group does. Which would you guys prefer? These are the three options: 1) Keep everyone together and fight together. 2) Everyone meets up but every night there are three stray Digimon so the party splits (from there, we can either have the same groups all the time or we can mix and match for each battle) 3) The three groups won't know about each other, and it won't be until later that they realize there are other Digimon Tamers. I was thinking the second option, but I want to hear the opinions of the players.
