Harper Region is temporarily a private site! Registration is temporarily disabled due to big site updates and due to both admins' life schedules -- moving and degree completion and internships. :) If you need to set up a new account or really, really, really want to register, email Rosalie at orosaliearto@gmail.com with "Harper" in the subject line !

Quick Updates

Weather Conditions

Season: Autumn

With the cooling season of Autumn, Ice-types are starting to re-emerge from their hibernation as Ghost-, Normal-, and Flying-types swarm in the largest numbers they will all year. In comparison, wild Fire- and Bug-type populations are falling in number. The migration of Flying-types to the south in search of warmer weather has also started, as Istin City starts to re-freeze and Autumn marks the beginning of Cypwater Point's rainy season. Handlers and Rogues alike should be wary: Ghost-type powers are boosted during this season, at the cost of being more prone to their triggers.

Hello all!

No doubt you've noticed the gradual slowing trend around the site and the greater pokemon community as our population ages, and especially here as our mods and admins progress into more stressful and demanding periods. As such, we'll be making some changes around the site to cope with the shifting workloads to keep our balance. http://files.jcink.net/uploads/harperregion/sprites/emoticons/1.png

Some of these changes will include a rebalancing of our systems, between freeforms and travels, to focus on a more freeform oriented basis while retaining the travels system that we built ourselves on. This will allow mods to better handle the workloads and players to get more posting in without the wait for a staff post! The rules reference handbook I and Flight have been working on is nearing completion, and will be established with the system changes as we go.

However!

Our staff are currently bound by real life time constraints pretty intensely. Most notably, Flight is preparing for college entrance and handling both their normal intense courseload as well as additional work and internships, and I myself am preparing to move several states away and finish my final semester for my degree plus an internship; the other mods are by and large similarly occupied. So, in order to allow these systems changes to go smoothly and to ease the time pressures of them, Harper will become a private site for a few months potentially stretching into late March or early April to allow time to attend to real life!

Never fear -- this only means that new registrations will be closed for a while. All extant members will be able to log in and view and use the site as they/you always have! What will change will be the emphasis shift towards freeforming and a temporary lifting of character limits for members (with admin permission), so you may play as many characters as you like for the duration of the private period. You may have seen a few things floating around like mentions of "Travels Arcs" -- these will be implemented during this private period as well and ultimately will make the site easier and more fun to participate in both for members and for those of us who work to keep it running! http://files.jcink.net/uploads/harperregion/sprites/emoticons/1.png

In this time period, a new custom skin will also be put in development and worked on, so that when we return we have a sleeker system and a sleeker look that balances the modern and the internet-old-school.

Six years is a long time to continuously run a site, and when you add on the years it was in development and Harper's forerunners where I tested and honed many of the aspects we all now enjoy, the site has been nearly a decade in the making and running -- I hope you don't mind me adding on to this that I could use the mini break from admining as well! http://files.jcink.net/uploads/harperregion/sprites/emoticons/30.png Modship will be relaxed and both admin and mod duties reduced during the private period to give all the folks who make the site go time to recoup and work on life so they can return better than ever.

The site will go private beginning on Monday, October 9!
Currently, based on real life time scales (and especially my graduation in December and subsequent move in February), we plan to return to being public on March 30th!

As always, Ever Onward.

-Rosalie & Flight
