    • Welcome, to Theralune.

    • [​IMG]
      Theralune has long been a nation of relative peace. Civil war, rebellion, and crime plague its past, as for any nation, but no great calamities have tarnished its history. However, rumors have been spreading of curious experiments taking place on the northern island of Komiir, home of the ever-tinkering gnomes. They say they’ve been experimenting with genetic mutations in pokemon, working to create a powerful force to aid in the advancement of Theralune. Unfortunately, the gnomes were not prepared to control what they created and now, word spreads of a mighty beasts ravaging the lands, growing, feeding, and reproducing. It is not yet known what this creature is, but the king of the gnomes has summoned the greatest heroes from across the lands to combine their efforts into tracking it down, and defeating it. There’s loot in it for all, but more than that, the threat, if left unmanaged, could mean destruction for all.


      In an adventure of pokemon, high fantasy, and table-top feels, you and your team will work together to stop this mutated beast from overrunning the lands. Play as an elf, a dwarf, a human, or a gnome, and venture out into a world filled with pokemon to track down the mutant and talk some sense into the pesky, meddling royal gnome tinkerers. This isn't a gym-based story, nor is it a classic ten-year-old-on-a-journey tale. No, this is a grand, fantasic adventure. Our story begins, in a tavern, as all the best do.

      Combat is based on a simple level system explained below:
      • Common pokemon can level up to level 10.
      • Rare pokemon can level up to level 15
      • Legendaries can level up to level 20
      • Type advantages add +2 levels to any pokemon, for that battle
      • Type disadvantages remove -2 levels from any pokemon for that battle
      Any pokemon can enter into a battle with a pokemon up to 1 level above it, once all calculations have been done. There are three tiers of battle: easy, medium, and hard. This will be explained using a lvl 5 fire type.
      • Easy: Pokemon BELOW your pokemon’s level (ex: =/<4, with advantage, =/<6)
      • Medium: Pokemon at an EQUAL level to your pokemon’s (ex: =5, with advantage =7)
      • Hard: Pokemon ONE LEVEL ABOVE your pokemon’s. (ex: =/>6, with advantage, =/>8)
      In each battle, the difficulty will indicate which roll you need to be successful. Required rolls are as follows:
      • Easy: =/>5 on d20
      • Medium: =/> 10 on d20
      • Hard: =/>15 on d20
      To go after pokemon of higher levels, such as legendaries, you will need to utilize a teamwork method called “Stacking.” This means you utilize numerous pokemon of the same level to gain additional levels for each. For example:
      • Facing a level 15 Legendary with a level 10, no advantage.
        • For each additional level 10, each pokemon gains 1 extra level
        • 1 x lvl 10 + 3 x lvl 10 = +3 levels to each = 4 x lvl 14 pokemon (DOABLE!)
      If numerous players take part in a battle, a loot roll will determine who the pokemon decides to trust. The loot roll will only be preformed by GM’s.

    • [​IMG]
      At the beginning of the roleplay, each player may bring with them up to two pokemon. All additional pokemon will be kept at home and may be transferred whenever they so choose, but these transferred pokemon are subject to travel time, leaving the player with a one pokemon deficit for the time of the exchange. As they advance as rangers, players maximum party size will increase.

      Pokemon have up to three evolutions. Those with only two are considered “common pokemon” and evolve at level 5. Pokemon with three evolutions are considered rare pokemon and they evolve at levels 5 and 10. Legendary pokemon do not evolve.
      Common: Max lvl: 10, evolves at lvl 5
      Rare: Max lvl: 15, evolves at lvl 5 and lvl 10
      Legendary: Max lvl: 20, does not evolve

      Ranger ability determines the capability of each player as a companion to the pokemon. A ranger with a low ability level won’t be trusted or seen as worthy by higher level pokemon. Ranger ability is increased throughout the roleplay via “Ranger Ability Events” which allow the potential of the ranger to increase. If a ranger has a pokemon companion trying to level, the level will be held dormant until the ranger can increase his or her ability. This means that if you cannot increase your ranger ability, you will not lose pokemon levels.
      • RA 1 = pkmn 2
      • RA 2 = pkmn 4
      • RA 3 = pkmn 6
      • RA 4 = pkmn 8
      • RA 5 = pkmn 10
      • RA 6 = pkmn 12
      • RA 7 = pkmn 14
      • RA 8 = pkmn 16
      • RA 9 = pkmn 18
      • RA 10 = pkmn 20
      Each pokemon will begin with FOUR moves in their moveset. At level 5, they gain an additional move, and continue to do so until their peak level, with the exception of gaining two moves at levels 10, 15, and 20.

    • Our Journey Begins in Kondumar, of Feldren. Realm of the humans.

      Town Map [20G]: "This is more than your basic town map. This one tells you where everything is. I've taken all the rumors of legendary pokemon and hidden treasure I've heard in my travels and stored it on this map!"

      Rare Pokemon Incense [150G]: If you light this incense, its scent will lure rare type pokemon to the area. Be prepared for an encounter! Some are stronger than others.
      Glittering Pendant [800G]: The luck instilled in this pendant by a specific legendary, wish-maker pokemon, grants the wearer +2 on any skill check roll. It lasts about 15 rolls.​

  4. Welcome welcome! Looking forward to seeing that skeleton fleshed out ^_^
    • Love Love x 1
  5. I'm here! *salutes*
  6. I guess with two people having Eevees, no one else can?

    Let's see what I can pull.
  7. Oh wait, I don't have tabletop experience.

    Do I need tabletop experience?
  8. Lol nope! Mowkie and I made sure this is suuuuper simple :)
  9. Alright, just to be sure - Pokemon are naturally occuring in this world right? I have these vibes that they're from a different plane.
  10. lol they're naturally occurring. But one has been genetically engineered
  11. Oh, and we has three Eevees, I believe. Soul and I were laughing over having more than the two, as we'd planned on turning ours into Unbreon and (I'm still thinking about mine) Espeon (or perhaps sylveon). Perhaps we can just limit it to nine total?? No doubles? I dunno, we'll have to review that bit. ^^

    EDIT: Nope, still two Eevees. XD But I don't see why we can't has more. Eevee is awesome, after all.

  12. Im definately interested! So, let me see if i understand correctly. To start off with, we can only have two pokemon, and those two pokemon must only have a total of two evolutions. At the beginning of the roleplay, they have to be in their base evolution, no higher then level 2, eventually evolving at level 5? Does that cover it?
  13. That would be correct, my friend! You are spot on. ^^

  14. Uh, I might have some interest in this. I'll see if I can make a character sheet later today. My only question is that the battles are still mostly theater of the mind and role-played right? All of those levels and numbers are just soft guidelines?

  15. You can still write out the attacks (as I, personally, love doing so), but whether or not they hit will be based entirely on the rolls. So be sure to leave each attack open to a hit or miss. We (the GMs) will be writing out the reaction of the wild pokemon in the random encounters.
    • Love Love x 1
  16. Nice. The sounds very reasonable and leaves room for roleplaying while retaining the flavor of Pokemon. Definitely interested.
  17. I'm very glad to hear that (and Soul will be, too)! Can't wait to see what you cook up for us! <3
  18. Making up a character sheet now!
    • Love Love x 1
  19. Just a quick question. How are 'baby' and MEGA evolutions treated for the sake of Pokemon's rarity?
  20. Oh oh yah I'm intersted. If I don't make something before 12:30pm my time, it'll be done much much later today though.
