3.) For your roleplay threads, we expect you to label them accordingly. Either in the topic title or in the description or in the first post, make sure to add these tags corresponding to your RP:

[NO] - Normal Characters only
[NNO] - Nuzlocke and Normal characters permitted
[OPEN] - Open thread (Allows any RPers to abruptly join the thread)
[CLOSED] - This thread is reserved to specific RPers.
[T] - Traveling thread. Avoid posting in these, as they are usually only made for a character to pass to another area.Note:
If you have any extra details such as in Open threads you only permit a maximum of 3 or so people or they need to PM for to be allowed, feel free to add it in topic descriptions. On an added note, always read the descriptions when joining a thread. It's common courtesy and randomly barging in and disobeying the topic's restrictions will lead to your post getting deleted.

'IN THE CORE [NNO][CLOSED]'
- Thread cannot be entered, it has been restricted to a private party. Both Nuzlocke and Normal type characters are permitted inside.
4.) For a thread to be considered completed, you must have at least 3 pages.
to the 3-page requirement would be Travelling threads
. They can contain only 1 post. (And Mono-RPs, to be explained later)ROLEPLAY TYPE
In this forum, you can either play it easily for the plot or just for fun, or go with the intended way of playing it and
experience the true hardships that await your characters. You don't have to stick with one type for all your characters. You can have one normal character for fun, and you can have one other Nuzlocke character for a challenge. We don't wish to push you into making your characters suffer, but we would prefer that you do, as it was the main objective of this site.Note:
If you're feeling up for a challenge, feel free to include personal handicaps. It doesn't matter if you're normal or nuzlocke, if you wish to have a restriction for a specific character then you're allowed to. Let's say you want your normal type character to not be allowed to capture and train fire types, then simply include it in the Roleplay Type field. But be aware that if you're going with this challenge, you cannot go back. You cannot withdraw your fire type restriction, last evolution restriction, or any other restriction for your character no matter how far you've gone. Take caution with doing this.NUZLOCKE
A Nuzlocke character experiences hardships, sacrifices, and a ton of death, but worthwhile rewards are what's in store to make sure you're getting enough in return.
Just want to have fun and don't want to suffer? Well, you can be exempted from the Nuzlocke rules by playing this type for your character.
-If a Normal character and a Nuzlocke character will share a thread, they will continue to abide their separate rules. Keep your own character's records in check and avoid making mistakes.
-You cannot cross-trade
. Meaning, a Nuzlocke character can't trade pokemon with a Normal character and vice-versa. In order to purchase or trade pokemon, you'll have to consult a Merchant or another character of the same type.MONO-RPs
You can roleplay with yourself in the MONO-RP part of the catergories, you will NOT get poke upon each post and you will NOT get levels with each page. You can only have ONE mono-rp topic open in your available five topics, and another cannot be opened until the first is graded and closed by a mod or admin.
When roleplaying with yourself, you will be graded and given prizes based on how good your topic is. The number of posts you post doesn't matter! You shall be graded on:
-Length of Paragraphs
-Detailing of events
The poke and levels given will be based on what the admin/mod thinks you deserve. Do not create huge arguments over it, if you feel that you deserve more, then have another mod look over it to give their opinion on whether it should be boosted or not.
When spawning pokemon in a mono-rp, we ask that you roll the dice in separate posts from your content. This will allow you to go back and edit without messing up the results. OCCUPATIONS
You will be playing a Character with the ability to capture and train pokemon. While it is banned in Sympho, your right to having pokemon will depend on your Occupation. S.I.L.P.H
Nearly anyone can join the S.I.L.P.H (Seeking Integrity, Liberty, Prosperity, and Honor) and fight against the Government Seekers. Be cautious, alert, and ready for hurt, as a Trainer's job is no longer child's play.
- ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES:
Being part of S.E.E.K (Symphonian Emissary of Eutaxy and Kritarchy), your job is to scour the Districts, gain the favor of officials, and most of all, arrest Trainers and put a stop to S.I.L.P.H.Townspeople fear and respect you, especially when you hold up your card or badge. Although it is not entirely legal, you're free to use force in your duties. Just try to avoid getting caught, but that's not much of a worry as most other Seekers don't really care.
- ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES:
Merchants are very hidden in society. They sell items and pokemon to both S.I.L.P.H and S.E.E.K, with very little of them favoring one over the other. It is rumored that they work for the same corporation that had established the PokeMart, but further research suggests that it is false.
-Plagued cannot be breeded. Their offspring will come out morbidly disfigured or most likely dead.
-Robots cannot be breeded. Common sense pls.
-Holding onto Plagued Pokemon will still take up pokeball space. MISCELLANEOUSTrainer Pokemon
When you're battling a trainer, the pokemon the trainer has is determined through the encounter die. The amount of pokemon the trainer has is determined by you, or your rp partner if you wish them to. They will ALWAYS be at least the same level as your highest leveled pokemon on your character. Higher is allowed and having their pokemon evolve during the fight is also allowed.
When fighting another trainer, that is an actual user, determine who will win between you. If you cannot decide, contact a staff member and they will flip a coin and determine who wins through there.Character Death
A Character is considered dead when he/she has lost ALL pokemon. If both Party and Storage has been wiped, the Character will be considered unusable. You will need to buy a Character Ticket to continue with the benefits from your recently deceased character. However, if by any chance you are unable to purchase one, you will have to play using a Free Restart
. Free Restarts aren't any different, except they start off much worse than Ticket characters.Breeding Pokemon
Only Merchants can breed pokemon, even then both pokemon must be at least level 35
before they go around making eggs. Each pokemon pair can make 1 egg every week, but there's still a chance of failing. Post a message on the Breeding Board under Character Discussion and a mod/admin will determine if your pokemon produced an egg. <they will be using a die to determine so though>
Note: If you try to pair a pokemon that has already bred with a one that has not, then it will NOT work.
