TAMERS: STREAM [OOC+SU] (M)
In 2001, the program known as the D-Reaper attempted to delete and absorb both the human and Digital Worlds due to its belief of their going beyond a specific amount of lifeforms, as well as the despair within a one Katou Juri's heart. On both sides, a war raged to stop this creature from destroying everything both existences held dear. Eventually, Japanese children known as “Digimon Tamers” rose up and were able to save Kato Juri, and defeat the D-Reaper. The world was left in confusion as the red mass shrank away from them, and peace returned as suddenly as it had been taken.
Though the Digimon had to return home on that day, they left their mark on this world. Corpses, destruction, scandal, all of these carried on as an event for the history books. Despite this, the games continued, life went on, and the world led on into peace.
Thirteen years after the events of the D-Reaper, something has shaken the evolving Digital World to its core. Whatever that something is, the human world is left defenseless to the tremors of the Earth and the bizarre weather patterns that have begun afflicting it. Odd patches of fog have been appearing frequently all over the world, leaving corpses and destruction in their wake. People have been disappearing. International governments have taken notice and the media has been having a frenzy.
Soon, it will be affecting you as well. The DigiGnomes decree it.
You are a young, or even old, person in New York. Perhaps you have lived here all of your life, or are visiting for an exchange program, or just a lowly tourist. Whatever the case may be, you are here now and that is all that matters. You go about your life as normal, accepting things as they are. Maybe you've kept your eyes on the news and the odd events that have been going on lately. Maybe you hate the news and say: that's crap. It hasn't happened to you, so it never will. That's okay. You're normal right now.
You won't be for much longer.
You're about to be hit (perhaps literally) by something the world was trying to avoid remembering: a Digimon, or even an egg that could be a Digimon. How you take the event is up to you, but I wouldn't recommend running away. With that Digimon will be a strange device, almost a toy. There will also be a diamond pendant of some sort. An odd symbol will be engraved inside it. Try as you might, you will not be able to recognize it. You probably won't be able to recognize much of anything.
Battles await you. So can friendships, romances, developments in ways people haven't thought of in years, not since wars. The worlds are colliding. Get ready.
Soon, the Digital World will be swinging its gates wide open again. Will you be going through them? That depends. Will you live long enough to find out?
ROLEPLAY THINGS OF NOTE
The RP will be done in “episodes”. Typically, an episode will be split into two parts. If there are specific quests or plots that roleplayers suggest or I think of that are important, there will be a spoiler tag for that player. Other players in the roleplay can interfere in these if they want to. That's part of the fun. All suggestions are for VM or PM.
Unless they are mentioned to be played by the GM, NPCs can mostly be played by roleplayers. The same goes for minor antagonists.
IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW
Digimon- Creatures made and evolved from data in the network. They are capable of many amazing feats and even evils. Mostly they stay in their own world, but sometimes they seek out humans, mostly for power.
Digital World- The place where everything is currently going wrong and where Digimon mostly live. This incarnation of the Digital World is rather different from the others. Information regarding this can be found here.
D-Arc- The “Digivice” used by a Tamer. Is capable of evolution, data storage, and Card Slash function, as well as a compass and watch. Other features have previously been employed, they just can't be accessed yet. Image here.
Tamer- A human partnered to a Digimon. Can be from a toddler to an old man, though it usually is a title given to children, ironically enough
Card Slash (Digi-Modify)- Digimon trading cards when slashed through the slot on the right slide (in just the right fashion, mind you) are capable of temporarily granting Digimon powers beyond their norm.
Digimon Trading Cards-Trading cards usually used for the Digimon card game now employed in the Card Slash technique. Examples include: Power, Speed, Hyper Wing, Radiant Fate. Full list will eventually be included
Indigo Card- A mysterious card that falls from the sky to unsuspecting humans once in a while. Perhaps it is the initiator of Matrix Evolution. No one knows. But wait... wasn't that what the Blue Card was for?
Four Holy Beasts- Four incredibly advanced Digimon who fought against the D-Reaper many years ago. They've been uncharacteristically quiet in response to these events.
Levels (Japanese/English) -I use the Japanese terminology in regards to this sort of thing but I will provide the English terms barring the D-Arc.
RULES FOR DIGIMON/HUMANS
1. Follow all PC rules. Kind of a given, but still.
2. Bunnying without asking is a no-no.
3. A paragraph to me is about three to six sentences. A post should be at least that, if not higher in regards to PC roleplaying guides.
4. If you want to interact with someone for a longer period of time, either have a joint post or make appropriate length posts with each other. If the other person suddenly up and disappears, at most, you have a week before you ask permission to bunny that person and move on.
5. That being said, one post a week at least. If I disappear, I'll try and leave a short message and explain what to do after that. If you don't appear after a week, I will VM you. Two weeks, you and your spot are gone.
6. No god-modding the fights or... anything. Everyone has their weaknesses.
7. Feel free to offer any new ideas to me. I will gladly take a look at them.
8. This roleplay is rated M for violence and cursing. Keep our romance on the downlow. :D
9. I will be making any final decisions, unless I have a sudden absence in which a temporary one will take my place. I will choose them.
10. If there is a problem, please tell me. I will get back to you as quickly as I can.
11. Break any rule more than twice and I have to boot you. No exceptions.
12. Have as much fun as you can!
SIGN UP STUFF
Sign ups will be taken up to eight days after this is accepted. There will be no reservations so as many people can post sign ups as they wish. I will be choosing them based on quality and how the character will be with others.
After the initial selection, if there are still open slots, any non-accepted members will be allowed to edit their SU to try again while the RP starts. They have until the first episode is finished to do so.
If someone is kicked out, I will VM a non-accepted member and offer them the spot.

If I knew anything about Digimon, I would totally join, but I sadly don't. :(
I'm sure this RP will be amazing though!
(As usual for when you're the GM)
My first post here on this site and I'm really interested in joining this rp, I have a bit of experience and would like this to count the start of my sign up. Got the hard parts out of the way first...
EDIT: Only have one paragraph left to write
Finished but I might keep coming back for little touch ups
Okay, not 100% sure I'll join but I'm putting a placeholder up for GabumonX -> Garurumon -> WeregarurumonX -> MetalgarurumonX
Michaela: It's okay buddy, I'd like to see ya if you wanted to.
EliteBeats: Okay, I'll be looking forward to it!
YogiOne: Welcome! More than happy to let you take a look.
Red: Okeydokey! I'll definitely keep you in mind~!
I'll be announcing the players until June 21st. You can still get in afterwards, though! But that's when I'm sitting down and looking at them.
Finished the SU, but placeholder still in effect. After rereading the initial post, I think I have an idea what the indigo card is, but I'm gonna keep quiet. If I'm right it'll be amusing. ;)
Ahahaha, sure, but there are no reserves. I'm picking the best dynamic. I can't wait to see what you come up with.
I was super motivated to finish my sign up and all I have left is the appearance, symbol and rp sample to fill out.
I'm a bit rusty on Digimon, but this look interesting :3 may join if I have time (and people don't fill up all the spaces).
YogiOne: Wow, you are so excited! I'm not accepting people until the 20th, so don't rush it. :)
SwiftSign, no one has to worry about that for a while. There's seven openings, so go all out if you want to.
Whelp. A friend of mine and I have been watching the first series of Digimon lately and it's gotten me in the mood for a Digimon roleplay. How could I ever resist? Reserving a place for myself, if you don't mind.
Also, I'm curious. Because some Digimon don't have recorded preDigivolutions or future Digivolutions, what's your stance on filling in the gaps with other Digimon that aren't related but might make sense? Or even making an alternate Digivolution path by linking two together which aren't officially related?
Well... lessee... I don't see anything wrong with that. However, make sure you check multiple sources to make sure that they don't have any possible lines. digimon.wikia.com is a good site, but it focuses more on the ones displayed in canon than the ones mentioned in the games or the mangas or in the Digimon toys.
Like, EliteBeats, there's a preevolution for Babydmon here. His name is Petitmon.
I'd recommend checking sites like wikimon.net and the DMA-Digidex (Digital Monster's Almanac+ Digidex) They have a lot more Digimon than just the anime canon lines.
If nothing shows up from that, then GO FOR IT GRIF. As long as it makes sense, GO WILD.
Looking forward to seeing what you guys come up with!
Oh, I forgot to search somewhere else xD
Sorry for that, although it's nice to know Babydmon actually has a full line :p
SU sheet progress is somewhere between awesome and, uh... hopeless xD
Should be properly done within the 7 days left before you look over SUs, though o3o
I use Digimon wikia whenever I need to catch up on things. It still has all of the information from the games including evolutions, so I should be fine!
What about in the case of the Digimon already having a Digivolution but I hate the design to pieces? Would you rather I keep it the same or would I be able to change it to something else?
I don't have much in mind for a partner so far. I'm just checking so I don't come up with an idea and find I can't do it. ^.^
xD No, no, it's cool Elite. Most people use that wikia. It took me forever to find that actually XD. I was like: what is that thing?
Grif, no prob! If you want to change it and it makes sense, I sure as heck ain't gonna stop ya!
Actually it's a lot cooler o3o
Like 10 million different combinations among lines :D
Also, I wanted to consult with you: would it be okay if I changed Babydmon's line that I've chosen to this one:
[Petitmon] ---> [Babydmon] ---> [Otamamon] ---> [Seadramon] ---> [MegaSeadramon] ---> [MetalSeadramon]
Otamamon is disgusting for my tastes, I take it xD but in Wikimon it says it evolves into Seadramon, and the Dramon type is like totes awesome. It also says something about jogressing in order to achive MetalSeaDramon... so, yeah... Wanted to consult on those things with you first o3o Also wanted to ask if it's not too overpowered or anything o.O
Huh? Oh no that change is fine.
Yeah don't worry about the jogressing. That was mostly for the video games or the toys. Go right ahead and use it. MegaSeadramon.... COOL.
Otamamon is weird. They kind of get abandoned.
Thank you, miss Fuyu! I shall get to work on my character as soon as possible.
I'm tempted to go with Hawkmon > Darcmon > Harpymon > Valkyrimon, although that's just a first draft... it's also Digimon pulled from completely unrelated Digivolution lines (excluding Hawkmon and Harpymon). Glad I asked now.
That sounds cool! Go for it Grif!
Remember you guys: you have until the 20th before I make a decision. So go on ahead and change as much as you want until then! That goes for people watching the thread too. I'll look at all the SUs before I decide.
What's the ruling on the late stage X-Antibody digimon? The reason I ask is because I just saw that Dynasmon has an X-Antibody form.
I think it's cool.Go for it Colony. :)
This looks reaaally cool! But i dont know anything about digimon.... T_T
Well... there's a lot of sites in particular, but I can give a basic synopsis of Digimon in general in a little bit. There are a bunch of people who know next to nothing about Digimon. Give it a try and see what happens.
Look on the sites wikimon.net and the Digimon Wiki for info about them.
I'd like to mention you can go on Hulu (if using your computer it's free, or if you have hulu plus you can watch on a smart tv) and watch the first 21 episodes of the first season, which will give you pretty good understanding of the basics. Unfortunately you don't get to see any mega level Digimon within those first 21 episodes.
