I never meant to say the force of his kick caused the explosion. I believe I'll have the car already on fire and then them smacking into made it blow up. That seems legit, right?

EDIT complete! Btw do digimon become corpses or are they absorbed as they were is season 3 into data by our digimon?

I took A LOT of time on this post, so please read, know, and love all of it

I'm against the Season 3 method of Digimon growing stronger for this RP. It's partly because there's going to be a lot of swarming enemies and managing the fairness of experience distribution based on individual kills will most likely be impossible. There will most likely be times along the lines of some people being able to battle a large number of Corrupts while others might have to wait for posts before their character can jump into action (or maybe even make posts to clear distances between them and the action); there won't be any way to balance out when it happens nor to whom it's happening to. I'm also certain that trying to equal out the difference will probably step on some toes from time to time. EDIT: Case in point the explanation of power below.

The second, and biggest, reason why I'm not so crazy about it for this RP is because it'd be illogical for our digimon to absorb The Corrupts' data. It'd be one way to introduce corruption to our digimon but I feel it sadistic to continuously expose the digimon to it every other combat chapter.

For experience gain I'm going with equal strength potential gained as power by digivolving and reverting while also being expressed (scaling to digivolution stage) in critical situations. So the more that the digimon transition between stages the stronger they will become. Rookie-to-champion-to-ultimate digivolutions/reversions, and other similar situations, will only count as one stage transition. No one can unlock any potential beyond 80% without being in biomerge. For Puppeteer's case this is kind of difficult because hers doesn't revert, so her digimon will increase in power as the team defeats digimon. However, her critical situation power will only be half as effective. This will still probably mean that Puppeteer will be the fastest to get stronger. In light of this, she will have equal power to a rival's in the case of player-on-player combat. Not using the max potential allotted is fine, of course. I'm going on the trust system here, though, so I expect that the tamers and digimon don't know this until informed of it and no one's going to do it continuously every spare chance they get.

Now that I'm discussing power, though, I might as well decide mechanics for Burst Mode since I decided that it'll happen. It will be a special-case feature that will only be available (not mandatory in every case, though) during chapters that I specify will be allowed to have it. It does, however, have to be unlocked by the danger of some critical situation after gaining access to Biomerge. Burst Mode (or whatever it will be called by the player) will count as 150% power (this applies to KingKaos since he chose biomerge over Xros). This once again is difficult because Puppeteer chose an X as her mega. Because of this, she will only have 125% power as a mega, but will have access to it at all times during biomerge. Power equality rules will still apply in player-versus-player combat.

Because power will be equal against players, combat between them will not be decided solely by power. Victory will have to be achieved through variations in type match-up, conditions in effect during the fight (being corrupted, being previously injured, personal choices to reduce digimon's power, etc.), and/or the use of personality-exploitation.

For corruption I'm going with infectious attacks that stronger Corrupts will possess. Corruption will, however, be saved for chapters after the prologue. Under the effects of corruption, the corruption personality will kick in and the affected digimon will have a 45% power increase. Corruption does not occur in biomerge, but tamers cannot biomerge with digimon corrupted at the time. This will also accommodate rage-digivolution.

Potential availability! Follow this for each form's capacity for potential power:
Intraining: capacity for 20% power
Rookie: capacity for 50% power; 35% capacities for InTrainings that reached Rookie
Champion: capacity for 65% power; 55% capacity for Rookies that reached Champion
Ultimate: capacity for 80% power; 65% capacities for Rookies/Champions that reached Ultimate
Mega: capacity for 100% power (150% inside of Burst Mode); 80% capacities for Rookies/Champions/Ultimates that reached Mega

What does this mean? When a digimon reaches a new stage, they gain the capacity to achieve (not automatically, but as they use their new forms they get stronger up to the given percents of their potential power. When they advance further, their previous forms gain an increase to the maximum amount they can access. They will, however, become stronger for being biomerged with their tamer. Be mindful, though, that they don't have to reach the stage's maximum to be able to digivolve to the next stage, so they may not even be at the maximum of the previous stage.

I'm going to be honest. I have spent the last couple hours and a half scratching my brain over most of this... the second I get off this laptop I'm probably going to zonk out as it explodes... so please, if there are any concerns or last-minute changes, speak them BEFORE THE PROLOGUE IS OVER as opposed to later... because I won't be mad and take it out on you, but I'll certainly be grumpy if it happens later... > w >

EDIT: and now it's almost 4 in the morning... please don't make me explain more TT w TT

So to digivolve we need to be in critical situations that push our partners and us to our limits thus allowing to digivolve. Then we will only be as strong if we start using digivolving for most of our battles?

I myself hate when abides reuse a new power and completely forget about the powers that came before and I feel like that speaks to this situation. Where our digimon will only get stronger if they keep digivolving into champion to fight then ultimate then powering down till all we do is biomerge to fight. But I could be reading you wrong to which I apologize. Could you please explain the level system alite more, please and thank you

I'll put up my thoughts on this when I get my lunch break. They're generally positive though.

First of all I'd like to thank you for taking my characters' unique position into account when you made this. I appreciate it. If I may abridge what you're saying, the partner digimon will be getting stronger as they shift through their evolutionary forms, except mine who will be gaining power from combat experience since Champion is its natural state. With this in mind, if Rosencrantz at some point in the plot overcomes his current state and unlocks Rookie and In-Training forms, (something I was planning to do after hitting Mega the first time) would I be switching over to the Dusk/Dawn format of gaining power like everybody else?


Aside from that I don't really have any concerns, especially if we're going to be considered pretty much equal if pvp crops up. A few years ago I would have been against trying to catagorize this sort of thing in a free-form RP, but I've seen since then that sometimes you need a system to guide things along at the very least. Don't be surprised if I try to beat power with guile, though.

@Puppeteer: I didn't know you intended to unlock the previous forms and the means to transition between them, but yes that summary is to the point. That and the fact that I went half-way with King when it came to the digimon's capabilities. Once Biomerge is unlocked the digimon are able to grow in strength while in previous forms equal to their maximum potential at the Ultimate stage. However, since the digimon need the tamers to biomerge, they cannot be stronger than that without the tamer.

-shades- deal with it.

And yeah PvP is often difficult in RPs because no system is going to be perfect. Since most of our digimon's corrupted personalities include becoming rage-monsters, though, to be ignorant of the probability is silly. Also, the point of this RP isn't to be competitive against each other. The characters can flaunt and tease each other over accomplishments and shortcomings (respectively), but there's no point in making them continuously bash each other over the head to decide which duo is the strongest. In all honesty what I hated most about the Digimon series was how they had only one or two people as the strongest when the whole plot was supposed to be about team work (and even then they played up the strength of some characters only to knock them back down a peg --cough cough-- TK and Kari --cough cough--).

And that is why my favourite episode of Season 2 is when Izzy tore a strip off Tai and Matt for taking him for granted and told them in plain and simple terms that it didn't matter if his digimon couldn't hit Mega level, because without him they'd be nothing.
You don't f*** with Mission Control.

Izzy was the bomb; he and Sora were probably the two I felt really bad for. Both of them, especially Izzy, did a lot for the group in their own way. I honestly didn't care for Joe that much, but I do wish they did a little more with his character (mostly because I don't remember much about his good moments).

Applying that to the RP, though, if Kaiba gets out of line (or a different character; I just mention Kaiba because he looks like the obvious target that it'll have to happen to... sorry if I offend :x) Dontae might just speak up and tribute to Izzy... assuming there's something for him to feel confident about. Right now the track record has to improve a little :b

Samantha can put the hammer down then! This hand of hers is burning red! Its valiant cry tells her to reach out and smack a b**** for great victory! Take this! Her love! Her rage! AND ALL OF HER SORROW! UNLIMITED PIMP SLAP WO-wait I think I jumped animes there...

To be honest I'd rather not wind up becoming the designated leader type anyways. That one RP I was in before, I wound up having to play the role of the Courage, Love AND Knowledge archetype characters...

...I was supposed to be freaking Kindness.

Finally managed to get my phone to get on this site!!! -small bit of confetti-

Probably won't be able to post until I get back to my place, though. So... at least I know I can see and chat here. :B

I'm not dealing with this touch-keyboard and autocorrect for a whole post. :x

Expect my post to be up either sometime tommrow morning, or the next day.

Also just to confirm

1.With the exprience system, my Digimon at Rookie lvl is currently at 55%?

2.Is is at all possible to make any last minute changes on corruption settings on your Digimon.

Also, although I'm certain that this answer is obvious, but are Armor Eggs going to be involved at all?

-I'm going to say no only because the RP just started. What the 55% means that yours can express a maximum of that amount since it has gained the capacity to digivolve to champion.

- changes are fine

- no digieggs. We've got enough concepts at play here to pick from and it raises the question of how exactly they would find such plot items in the human world.

@Puppeteer and Fuyu: I wasn't meaning that as a "the leader should do it" kinda thing, but I guess if we were to decide a leader we know which ones will be stepping down in the RP :b

@HTS: I never actually put a set amount of time before we had to gather, but the faster you can incorporate at least meeting up with someone else the faster it'll go. I'm working on a joined post with Fuyu, so our characters will at least meet up if not join forces.

I've also decided on a list of four Megas:

- Pharaohmon
- Plesiomon
- Boltmon
- HerculesKabuterimon

Anyone that has any desired changes should speak up before the day's over.

The list sounds pretty good to me. I'm waiting until I get home to post again. A Vita is not all that great for big RP posts and all that jazz. Samantha is not yet at the front lines, so it may be difficult to hook her up with the others as she is right now. After I post that'll probably change.

Edit: It is generally a leader sorta thing to put the foot down on disruptive influences to the team. And I guess I could picture Samantha being a leader, but I'd rather not have to handhold people, not that I expect that'd be a problem with this group. That sort of position seems to naturally crop up in character instead of in the OOC. The characters pick their leader, not the players. And even then it's generally an unconscious and subtle decision.

@HTS, I'm not quite sure yet, I still about a post or two away from me taking my chosen *path* so to speak, and start heading further into the city again. I'm a pretty big stickler to somewhat reality, so I guess who I end up meeting first should be who I'm closest to. I've kinda figured I'm either the furthest away, or a close second (By the account of all the posts I've read, Samantha could very well be further away). I don't think I'm anywhere close to Dontae or Kit. That's not to say I don't want to or anything, in fact, it's quite the opposite, but if I think we are fairly far away from each other, then I realistically want to make it longer before the potential of us meeting...if that makes any sense.

@HTS: I'm glad that our posts showed some unintended synchronicity in a way with the town hall. Great minds think alike, huh? ;b

EDIT: They can still degenerate (except for Puppeteer's digimon because I'm mean and won't let her do that right now >:3). "Insta-Champion" just means that your digimon had the capacity to digivolve to Champion right away.

That they do Ducklett. That they do. I've officially used the Insta-champion. Haha. Do they stay at the champion level or do they degenerate?

So guys, any questions/concerns/comments? By the look of it there's going to be a group forming at the town hall, so that'll probably be the location where the Champion digimon appear. That or somewhere close by... and then confront the ones that are at the town hall.

It won't be necessary to get your character to the town hall before I decide to start that, but that will probably be where the action will be directed :b

Kaiba and Draco shall make their way to the town hall then. We won't meet with anyone but we will see you all as we walk to it. Then from there I will just follow the flow of the post from there to make our move. I should have my post up later tonight after homework and reading is all done. That ok?
