SIGNUPS: CLOSED Link to the OOC Minimizer Tab PLOT COMBAT SYSTEM DICE SYSTEM REVIEW RULES MAP GOMY'S SHOP Welcome, to Theralune. 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. RULE REGARDING DICE When a GM requests a roll of you, you have a job to do the following: 1. Post the relevant skill and stat (e.x. Stealth: 2) in it's own post. 2. Roll a d20 using the built in dice system on iwaku. You must first post to access this, hence the individual post. 3. DO NOT. EVER. DELETE A POST IN THE IC DURING A ROLL. You will immediately get a 0 on the roll and fail. No excuses. If you "accidentally roll twice" I don't care. Leave them both. Your GMs have eyes and can see the rolls and will use the first. If you roll a d19, by accident, RE-ROLL. WE HAVE EYES. Okay, now that that's over (no more bold red caps), I'm providing you with a simply reminder about rolls. If you have no points in a skill, you can still do a check, the crappy thing is that you need a 20 to succeed. So, good luck. 1 SP means you need a 15+ to succeed. 2 SP means you need a 10+ to succeed. 3 SP means you need a 5+ to succeed. Nothing more to it. If you have an item that boosts your roll, you add it after you've rolled, and you must also post that item in your rolling post. [ex: Perception: 2, +2 from Glittering Pendant. . . . roll comes out to a 9. +2. Success at 11.] +Don't be an ass. Love each other. +Do as your GMs say. +If we sense overpowered characters? We will end them. *evil laughter* +Maximum two characters +No, you can't have a shiny, a legendary, a three stage pokemon, or a higher-than-two-levels pokemon at the start +Posting requirements are one post per week, though we hope for more. +If you try to rebel and make your char evil and ruin the plot? Your char will die. +For all town/village creation, you must get the approval from a GM. +Don't be an ass. +Have Fun! <3 Our Journey Begins in Kondumar, of Feldren. Realm of the humans. Kondumar: Lavellia: Norander: Tartyri: Everia: Dahlia'Ammum: Population: 193. A rather isolated village, the surrounding pokemon has made them follow a spiritual warrior culture, many going into the mountains to train their body and have a psychic pokemon or two to help them train their mind. Because of the rough ground around them they live off mostly from the fish in their coastal shore, farms being only a small help and as such a reason for their relative small number. Not wanting to disrupt the balance around them, they keep a very strict limit to the amount of villagers in the village. As a ritual/sacrifice, every few hundred years (just so happens to be when they get a sudden influx of new children or otherwise more population) they exile a single child to explore the lands and bring glory for the village. "Welcome, welcome, young traveler! What wares have I for sale? Well a bit of this, a bit of that, of course. What else could a gnome sell?"

You arrived by your own means, of your own accord, after hearing that the barkeep here had a letter from a noble in the Gnomish Tinkerers District in Tartyri. It's said this letter contains information about the mutant pokemon that have broken free of the gnomish labs and crossed over the Silver Straight, spreading out across the mainland. The leaders of Theralune have all summoned forth heroes of every nation and race to assist in this now international terror. Despite the terror that has ensued, with rumors of forest fires, mass pokemon deaths, village destruction, and even abduction and murder, few know what they are facing. Few have ever caught a glimpse of the horrifying mutant pokemon. At least, those on the outside know little. Those on the inside, however, might have a clue as to what Theralune faces. The letter was bought from a friend of a friend of a thief who may or may not have intercepted the information from a courier heading south from the Silver Straight. The barkeep has decided to open up his heart (and his coinpurse) to the heroes of Theralune who wish to read its contents. But he needs convincing. The sun is beginning to set and the night is long, you've plenty of time to try and convince the old dwarf, Hogrin, to part with the information. You look around and see that there are at least a handful of others who seem to have arrived for the purpose of reading the letter. Perhaps you can all work together? SETTING (Move your mouse to reveal the content) SETTING (open) SETTING (close) All around you there are people of all races. Elves, dwarves, humans, even a gnome or two (likely a pair of merchants, since gnomes rarely leave their precious island for reasons of leisure). The barkeep is a thick, burly dwarf with a beard dragging lightly on the ground, painted a charcoal black like his hair. Both masses are braided intricately, but with a level of carelessness that tells you the braider has been doing it for several decades. He makes his way on his rounds through the bar, checking on his dainty, brunette barwench and the numerous long-legged servers, before heading back to a slightly more isolated round table near the entrance of the bar where he sips his ale and counts his gold. The barwench, apparently named Tanera, from what you've heard around the bar, is dressed in a short, pale green dress with lacy frills at the end of the skirt and on the sleeves. Clearly human, she has well tanned skin and brown eyes, tired as can be. She doesn't seem to look impressed with the crowding of the bar on a Tuesday night, but what can she really do? She needs the coin. Throughout the bar are three servers, one with curly brown hair, one with a thick mass of black hair, pulled back into a bun, and a single elf with long blonde hair tied back into a pony tail. Their names are unclear but they certainly seem a lot perkier than Tanera over there. In the corner, a jolly, fat dwarf jangles and jams away on the piano, playing uplifting, traditional dwarven music which stands as a hallmark of "The Tuneful Tankard." The pair of gnomes sit close to the piano, lounging in colorful chairs by the hearth and chattering quietly to each other. A large group of men take up three or four of the more central tables and numerous other groups of individuals take up most the other center tables. The border tables seem clear for the most part, save a few quite couples enjoying an evening date. The bar is filled with drunk soliders, off the clock, of course, and numerous older men that seem to be dedicated patrons to the bar, minding their business while having drinks regularly sent their way by Tanera. The kitchens are emitting a delightful smell and if you peek in the doors, you'll see a young human male moving about and working alongside another dwarf, who seems to know what he's doing. The bar is loud, but luckily, not too much to handle.
