Weather Conditions

Season: Summer

The season change is most obvious in Cypwater, where the swamp water level has retreated significantly and rain is growing scarce. In the far north, Istin City is experiencing a small dip from its typical level of freeze. Between the two cities, Harper Region enjoys a dry and near-scorching summer, which sees the swarming of fire-, electric- and certain grass-types. Water-types have retreated into the cooler seas and ice-types have almost entirely disappeared. Bug-types now hide from their diurnal natural predators and have hidden themselves deep in Edgewood.

Redirect Welcome to Harper!

Welcome to the Harper Region, where we take pokémon back to a simpler time, before cars and trains and computers. In fact, we take it all the way back into the middle ages, in a region founded by an exiled bard whose name has become legend.

That's right, Harper is a medieval era pokémon site, where the Guardians of the region are in constant conflict with the rogues and the Order of the Masque, who would see the region's governing systems and classes overthrown. Both civilians and the rest of the region's pokémon handlers lay in between the two opposite sides of the law, making their own way by breeding, acting as vigilantes or generally people for hire, or trying out something entirely new.

Harper is not stat/numbers based, making for realistic battles and allowing members to choose their own characters' paths. Both pokémon battles and physical, hand-to-hand combat battles may occur in character, and players begin with a weapon and some armour.

The style of play here is different than your typical play-by-post forum, more similar to tabletop RPGs, in that you play your character with/against a staff member, who acts as the "dungeonmaster" or "gamemaster," controlling the world and the non player characters in order to keep the system fair.

Join us, and plunge into the rich and diverse world of pokémon, taken back in time.

No New Posts Update/Character Requests and Plots
With the addition of multi-character travels, it was decided that moving some things to their own forum would greatly benefit both this section and the Public Services. Here, you can post if you would like someone to multi-thread with you, or if you want an NPC turned into a temporary PC and played in your travels along with the mod. You may also use this area to plan things with your multi-travels if you wish. The update request thread has been moved here.

No New Posts Pennant Isles
Previously inaccessible and only recently discovered following a change in the currents along the western coast of the region, these islands are filled with elaborate ruins and powerful pokemon and -- so far -- have no residential populations of humans either alive or(more remarkably) dead. Its discovery appears to have released a strange force that brought a new type of pokemon to the region.

Posts in here will garner no EXP for the pokemon involved, but may result in happiness increases if listed as a goal at the start of the topic. Anything that happens in here can and will be considered as having happened ICly, which is particularly useful for backstory fleshing or building relationships between pokemon and character that there might otherwise be little time for. These threads, like training threads, can have any setting in the region.
