In the recent past, a programmer and former Pokémon trainer named Andromeda Jameson creates a video game for Silph Entertainment Software as a tech demo. Based upon the Digimon franchise, the game utilizes the same principles developed for the Porygon project to permit limitless, lifelike AI. Silph is so impressed with her work that they pursue a development license from Bandai Namco.

Now, Digimon World Online has taken the world by storm with its stunning graphics and gameplay. But, what Andromeda has kept secret from both players and Silph is that the game isn't just a game. Having been created using the Porygon technology—a technology that resulted in an actual lifeform—the Digital World, and all of the Digimon within it, are very real and alive. Not only that, it is even possible to physically enter and leave the Digital World at will with the right equipment.

Most shocking of all, however, is the fact that Digimon of the highest levels are potentially even more powerful than most legendary Pokémon. Coupled with the fact that they can, in theory, simply be programmed for total loyalty, this has made them highly desirable for use as weapons by the military of the United Pokémon Territories.

Having failed to hack the game's source code, the military has instead dispatched an operative designated "sonicstar229" into the Digital World to reprogram the Digimon one by one. Andromeda has done her best to fight back, but has unfortunately been driven into hiding.

In her place, the game has chosen you as one of its protectors. As both a Pokémon trainer and a DigiDestined, it will be up to you to master the monsters of both worlds and stop sonicstar229 from upsetting the balance of power.

RULES:

In general, I have only three main rules:

1) No godmodding. If you don't know what that is, look it up.

2) No explicit sexual content. I know most of us are adults here, but not everyone wants to watch your characters doing the nasty in the middle of a combat-based RPG.

3) This RPG uses English dub terminology for both the Pokémon and Digimon elements, where available. Your character may express a differing preference in dialogue, but please stick to this model in narration to avoid confusion.

More specific rules are noted in the sections below.

SETTING:

This RPG uses the Pokémon world as the "real" world. The primary canon is that of the video games, with elements of the other continuities added in where appropriate or interesting. You may start in and explore any region up to Generation VII.

You can also start in and/or travel to real world locations (such as Japan or the United States) if desired, bearing in mind that wild Pokémon may only be encountered in the Pokémon regions until a proper method of predicting wild Pokémon patterns in Pokémon GO is determined.

The Digital World is located on a development server, far from the prying eyes of the game's regular players. On entering, you will first appear in the Primary Village on File Island, which is located in A-Sector, an area of the Digital World based on its appearance in Digimon Adventure and other materials from that era. There are also T-, F-, S- and X-Sectors based on subsequent media, but they are currently inaccessible due to sonicstar229 shutting down their access points. These may be brought back online as the game progresses.

GAMEPLAY:

This is a fairly open-world game with few limits on where you can go or what you can do.

Combat is turn-based and officiated by the GM (that's me). You declare your move, your opponent declares their move, then I tell you the result. Pretty simple, right? If there are more than two combatants, please make sure I know who all is participating. Pokémon and Digimon may not attack humans or vice versa.

Human-on-human combat is permitted, but has no associated gameplay mechanics. I ask only that you refrain from godmodding.

Most of the core series Pokémon games' mechanics, such as levels, the stat system and basic combat mechanics, are ported over to this RPG, along with several additions from spinoff media. The same mechanics are also applied to Digimon, with some unique twists. The possibilities are pretty broad, so I won't try to list them all here. If you have a question about a specific feature, you need only ask.

Items can be purchased in shops or via the D-Terminal, or can be dropped by defeated opponents. Wild Pokémon can be caught the same way as in the handheld games, while defeated Digimon may randomly offer to join you. Digimon may be stored in the D-Terminal for convenience.

I will keep track of just about everything behind the scenes. You may still wish to keep your own record of your party and inventory, however.

CHARACTER CREATION:

Characters begin with one thousand Pokémon Dollars (₱1,000), a Pokédex, any desired Pokémon apps, one Potion, five Poké Balls, a Digivice and a D-Terminal. You are not limited to one character, and may submit as many as you feel you can reasonably keep track of. All characters must be human, and must be original. Please wait to be approved before you begin playing.

Name: Celia Kurogami
Nickname: Lia
Age: 17
Sex: Female
Nationality: Johto

Starter Pokémon: Totodile

First Digimon Partner: Kuramon

Pokémon Apps: Pokégear

Appearance: Standing at 5'7", Celia has a slim figure with an average bust, fair complexion, and deep blue eyes. She has hip-length dark brown hair, parted on the left with a blonde streak running through it, usually worn in a high ponytail. Her normal outfit consists of a black denim jacket over a red tank-top, grey jeans, and dark red shoes.

Personality: Celia is what some would call a 'thorny rose'. To a stranger, she would seem quite rude and uncaring, and the sort to return cruelty tenfold. A smile is an expression almost never seen on her face; she almost always has a steely glare. Yet she does have her soft spots: the level of kindness she shows to her Pokémon and Digimon is to be envied, and if you do manage to become friends with her, you'll have gained a trustworthy ally.

History: Born in Unova's Castelia City, Celia's parents divorced when she was 5, and she's lived with her father, who moved to Johto, ever since. Though she resides in New Bark Town, where Prof. Elm resides, she hasn't started on a Pokémon journey yet, claiming a lack of interest. As such, she's currently still in school, albeit in her last year; it's unclear what she'll pursue afterwards, if anything

....couple of problems.
  1. The "Name" field is required.
  2. The "Personality" field is required.
  3. The "History" field is required.
  4. Koromon is an In-Training Digimon and therefore not viable as a starter. There are at least four different Fresh Digimon capable of Digivolving into Koromon, however (namely Botamon, Mokumon, Nyokimon and Yuramon).
  5. You seem to be implying that this person is a crossbreed of either two Digimon or a human and a Digimon. In the universe in which this game is set, Digimon cannot breed, and even if they could, the Digital World has been in existence for a year at most, not nearly long enough for this character to be eighteen. I suppose I should have specified that in the first post, but I figured it would be fairly obvious that an eighteen-year-old game would be considered downright ancient in computer years.

This concept may be viable in other RPs, but it's out-of-place here. Sorry. I do encourage you to come up with an alternative, as I'd still like for you to be able to join the game.

If it helps, Biomerge and Spirit Evolution are both achievable in this game, so you can still end up with a human/Digimon fusion at some point, if not exactly in the way you wanted. The Burst technique from the Pokémon RéBURST manga is also available.

Again, it's an interesting concept that might work in other RPs, but here, it doesn't fit the setting. I guess I'd better add a provision to the first post that all submitted characters must be human. Didn't realize that'd end up being something I'd have to specify. :p

It's alright, no harm done. Remember, take your time; nothing ruins a character or story quite like hasty writing. Think hard about your character's history and how that might shape their personality—or go in reverse, come up with the personality first and then work out what kind of history they must have had to end up that way. And think about their future, too. What are their goals outside of being a DigiDestined? Why do they strive toward those goals? Things like that.

Sorry if you already know all that, I'm just trying to be helpful. I feel that's sort of my job as the GM.

Name: Pearce Williams
Nickname (Optional): N/A
Age: 13
Sex: Male
Gender (Optional): Doesn't fussy himself with a gender identity, he's just Pearce. (So Agender I guess) (Honestly you're the greatest person on earth for having this option available.)
Nationality: Hoenn with a convenient Australian Accent


Starter Pokémon: Nidoran Male


First Digimon Partner: Fufumon


Pokémon Apps (Optional): You may have any combination of the following: Pokenav Plus, Poketch (new model), Holocaster


Personality: DADDY ISSUES Used to being always known and spoiled rotten by strangers, Pearce has a bit of a stuck up attitude and not really used to deeply socializing with others or looking past face value. He acts like he is better than others, but this is due to a deep seated anxiety he holds that he is not good enough, and will never be good enough, to live up to the expectations of those around him. Once he is shown true kindness, Pearce will open up and reveal that, shockingly, he is still just a scared, lonely child whose imagination and emotions tend to run rampant. He will become clingy to those who refuse to give up on him or lose patience and value him as his own person, and once he has stuck to those people he becomes a bubbly little ally for life.


History: Born as the son to a very prestigious Pokemon trainer, Pearce had expectations set on him by others the moment he left the womb. His father was constantly travelling at the requests of others and thus Pearce grew up under his sweet mothers eye most of the time. Since his father was originally from Hoenn also, everyone seemed to know him, and in turn Pearce, which caused them all to place Pearce under his fathers shadow, which became all the child knew as he grew up in his hometown of Rustboro City. Going to school was rough in Pearces eyes, everyone's expectations were high from the start, so Pearce believed he had to keep it that way, and worked himself to shreds by the time he was in the 6th grade. Once he was completely worn down, Pearce began to shun those who viewed him as the lovable, prodigious son of an expert trainer and started behaving like a brat, looking down on other people and using his 'status' to get what he wanted, much to his mother and fathers dismay. He began to slack off at school and spent his time playing Digimon or chilling with his Nidoran (Rightfully the son of one of his Dad's strongest pokemon).


Pearce holds his mother in extremely high regard, as she was always loving and accepting of any decision Pearce made, not that his father wasn't, but that old man was never around. Deep down he loves his dad, but as of right now he likes to blame him for everything that's wrong with the world and himself.

(Let me know if you need any changes!)

That's the best signup I've seen yet. Welcome aboard!

We now have enough players to begin the campaign, but signups will remain open in case anyone else wants to join in.

I'm really liking this style of us making a choice and the DM following, very refreshing compared to the laid out plotlines I'm used to in other RPs! Makes me think of dungeons and dragons, I like this freedom.

I discovered that the difference lay in whether or not I submitted my own player character. It dawned on me that, since I know the story and mechanics of the game inside and out, any player character I submitted would end up basically taking over and laying down rails whether I intended such or not. So I chose to only play NPCs and have minimal say in the players' final decision-making process. Keeps things interesting.

Guys, may I make a little suggestion...cause RP rules are being broken atm. You need to flesh out your posts more. The one liners are not RPing. >.<

Maybe have your character think to how something is as well as just talk.
