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.

Harper Region RPG latest news: Site Reopening!
Welcome back; your last visit was on Today
Forum Topics Replies Last Post Info
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 a stat-light game, 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.

This 'town' is almost entirely a mirage, with only one or two truly solid buildings. It is used sort of like an inn for travelers. Psychic pokemon behave very strangely here.

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.
