1 I know that not much will care, but... on Wed Jul 07, 2010 7:28 pm

I have updated my pokemon campaign. The damage system has been totally overhauled while I changed the attack sequenced to a modified DQ system. Currently I'm testing with my cousin. The reason why I bring it up is that it may have an effect on how Big World may play out, especially since pokemon will exist in it.

In what way did you modify DQ's fighting system? I'm always interested in Home Brews... thus the section.

Very Happy

Nothing too major, just that I stuck with D&D rolling of the stats (PS, MD, etc...) and fatigue grows with the pokemon level. Also started using Attack, Defense, Sp. Attack, and Sp. Defense to deal with damage. There's no ranks in skills atm, though that may change. Trying to role play without using Exp other than for the pokemon. Attaining of skills and improving them has to be done strictly in game as oppose to spending exp for improving and gaining them. Gonna put the game through a test either tomorrow or Friday, depending on Gabby (yes I said Gabby and not DJ... he has gotten too cool to play my campaign [that and the fact he went away to camp for the next 2-3 weeks, but it seems he'd forgotten what RP is anyway {sometimes I hate WoW, and this is one of those times}])

WOW does seem to sap the Roleplaying right out of Roleplayers. It encourages the idea of expecting things to automaticly happen. Video game RPGs teach easy instant gratification.

Example:

PC: I go into my room and call for an animal companion
GM: Okay, what prperations do you take? Are there any prayers involved? What do you use to create a bond?
PC: ...the book says I get one at 5th level... It doesn't say anything about preperations and rituals...
GM: Oh, you're right. Sorry. Well in my game I'm requiring that player roleplay attaining those things. Think about it and I'll go around the table and come back to you.
PC: Thanks
30 minutes later...
GM: Okay what did you come up with?
PC: I open the window...
GM: ... nothing happens... Suspect

I hate WOW too.

Gee... that sounds familiar. I wonder who was the stupid player who... oh... I should shut up now... silent

You don't have to be so self depricating. It was you, but I wasn't posting to make fun of you. I want you to see, as a GM, what WOW has done to those who might have otherwise attempted to roleplay.

CNT REALLY COMMENT MUCH ON THIS TOPIC SINCE PIKAMAN IS NOT MY FLAVOR...cap locks were on..he he

I know they carry ball with magic animals in them and the animal fight. Another thing is that he main characters name is ASH, I only know of one Ash and he is from The Evil Dead series. All other are cheap imitations.

Pluss who will name their son Ashley?

To Grom: I knew what you were talking about, I was joking about the stupid part. I feel the same way with WoW, even though I continue to play it (at least till July 29, when my subscription runs out, then all I have is the games for the consoles to distract me). I'm hoping that I could probably get Gabby on the right path of thinking almost like how DJ was, and maybe get my mind motivated to being a good DM again

To Leetin: No way with 4.0!!! That is what is making the game so lame.

Exactly my point. I cant believe all the creators of that garbage did not die instantly upon printing of the first run of books.

Heh, heh... I've updated the game again... not that many care. Haven't seen anyone on the site for a while. Only one to respond to my Alura Fang was Leetin...

Anyway, I'm planning a new adventure in the pokemon world, although it might just be any alternate universe of the current one. The last story went dead because of my cousin not heeding the advice of the PCs, then got himself in a fight that ultimately led to his character's demise... I couldn't see what the villain would do with him without the word death appearing, so I just decided to start fresh.

I did some minor tweaks to the system... actually a major tweak. If someone replies, I'll fill in on the changes.

Wow! Someone actually replied!!! Very Happy There may be life for the forum yet...

Well that is one of the tweaks for the new game. I will be including the new pokemon that comes out in BW. Going to wait for next week to see the new badges so the sheet can be updated.

BTW, I'm trying to get White. I may have the money next week, if the damn check comes in.

I need more responses... I won't reveal the big tweak unless I see interest.

I remember a wile back some people mentioning that this game /tv show is introducing a black character.

Not to burst anyones bubble, but look up the term koccoijin.. the spelling is most likely very off.

Here is the jist of things.

There is am american army base in japan. The locals want big black meat and decide that if they look black, then they can pick up a brother....yes these girls tweeze their hair to look like a 60's fro and stain there yellow skin black.

They are also known as raccoon eyes, hence their eyes are not diyed.

This is pathetic b/c I never spoke to a black man who said asians are not hot......sad sad world.

Wow, its been a while since I've felt a desire to post here. Its good to be home.

@Black/White- lets all get it and kick each others ass.

@Pokemon RPG- I'm interested in PCing in any game. I don't remember the last time I was able to completely let go and be a single character with no concerns with keeping the world together. I love GMing but I've sacrificed many chances to enjoy the game like everyone else far too often. Bring the game set up a spot and let me know when. I'm down(except for Friday and Saturday, of course)

I don't know when that will be... Hopefully sooner than later. The job that I currently have is not a secure one nor is it a frequent one. But If I do get some good hours, I may have a game either at KG or at the school, if the school will let me in. I will definitely keep those interested posted.

Well, I almost let a response of interest go unnoticed. I saw Lem say he would be interested but responded to a time and not with more info... bad kitty!!! lol... cat

Anyway Here is some good news, with the game I made it a little bit more customizable with pokemon. Bad news, You can only have one (1) pokemon with you during the quest. This is to control the size of the battle, since a good portion of the storyline usually find the trainers become pokemon themselves. Too many NPCs and the battles go stale. More Bad News... Pokemon do NOT gain experience or levels. I find that everyone focuses on leveling than on the story, which then leads to planning numerous battles which then leads to the previous issue. Okay, maybe some good news... Humans gain experience like in DQ. You can spend EXP to improve yourself AND your pokemon. In addition, I'll make use of items such as protein, carbos, etc... to help improve the stats of the pokemon. Also, due to gym battles and the tournament not changing rules, when you purchase stuff that effect pkmn stats, you buy for ALL CURRENT pokemon you own. (I said that you can have only 1 one the quest, but you may own multiple pokemon.) With the loss of levels, each stat will have a max value in which once at the number, the pokemon cannot roll anymore for it. This introduces the natures into the game as they will effect the highest stat values.

Any questions or comments?

I only saw PokiPorn once or twice. Whats the concept, besides the evil redhead wanting to molest Ash?

20 Re: I know that not much will care, but... on Mon Mar 21, 2011 5:50 am

so, does that mean if i use proteins on my physical pokemon, then even the ones that use special attack will have attack increased? how would one differentiate between these two stats?

@ Legendary: Yes all those items will be in the game. For the most part to upgrade, you must either find the item or spend exp to boost. If I do put the items up for sale, they will be expensive. On the other hand, I'm trying out this thing like in Disgaea. You know how when you hit with a major combo ( or rather destroying the geoprisms in such a way that it clears the board) you get rewards for it? Well I am trying to implement that but its geared to the style of role playing. The better the role playing, the more stuff you'll be awarded. Note: this was setup with a single player in mind. As I was typing this, I could see how it may lead to a conflict if used in a multi-PC party. We'll see if I could fix this before bringing it to a full party situation.

@ Leetin: I don't know how serious or playful you are being. The concept is that a 10 year old (although he should be about 20 now) travels the world to become a Master of the creatures he captures. To become a master, he pits the creatures against others to prove that his training is better than others. All the while, he thwarts the attempts of poachers who try to steal other people pokemon. If only the red head was still there, maybe the story would be still interesting. Hope that clears it up for you.

The appeal is something from childhood as well as the competitive nature of the world. A fun game with a decent cartoon made a phenomenon that even now has a subtle hold. Don't knock it, though I doubt there's any way you can get into it at our age.

Its hard to get into, especially since the game is geared towards 12 year olds. I understand the nostalgia part of it. Maybe if you dressed it up and called it a different name, it might help..??

Conceptually it has a good foundation, The execution is failed for me. Trying not to sound negative and discouraging. Keep on posting your ideas.

If you are talking about the series in general, yes its aimed at 12 year-olds. I've personally been playing it from the get go. So that may explain why I like it so much. Other than that, if you can't get into, then you can't get into it...

If you are referring to my campaign, I could understand why too. Originally, it was designed for the elder of my two cousins. It was a way for me to practice being a DM/GM with an environment that I was very familiar with. Since the eldest of my cousins was 9 at the time, and I knew about Pokemon, I figured it would be the perfect format. It only came out to the school when I told Lem about it and he along with a couple others expressed interest in playing it. I know that not everyone cares about it (hence the name of the post) but I know that some do.

However, I think this may be the last version of this game. Most of the stories I've done involve transformations and frankly I'm running low on the ideas for it. I know that Alura Fang is the same situation with her being a werewolf but maybe a different perspective of creatures would help. At least that is more of an original idea (not really but what's truly original anyway.)
