    Okay, so this may not be the ideal location for this thread but it seemed like a good start. I've had it stuck in my craw for a while to develop a Pokemon tabletop RPG (think something in the vein of Dungeons and Dragons). Others do exist, but they don't really appeal to me. This one I want to adapt to a semi-realistic, "T-rated" Pokemon setting. Is anybody interested in helping me develop this?

    Topics to be covered (list far from final):

    Trainers
    -Stats and Growth
    -Jobs
    Pokemon
    -Stats and Growth
    Character Creation
    -Suggested Method
    -Picking a Starter
    Battling
    -Attacks
    -Movement
    -Items
    Traits/Feats
    -Human Traits
    -Pokemon Traits
    Equipment
    -Items
    -Gear
    -Armor and Weapons
    Pokedex
    -really really long compilation of stat sheets and such

      No takers, huh? Would this get more of a response in some section of game development, perhaps?

      Trainer Template:

      HP- Hit Points. You may expect your Pokemon to do a lot of the battling, but there's no guarantee that you'll be staying safe. Hit Points gauge how much of a beating you've taken.

      STR- Strength. Gauges how much you're able to carry, how hard you hit, and who's going to win in an arm wrestling match. Roughly analogous to Attack.

      CON- Constitution. Gauges endurance and resistance to environmental factors, roughly analogous to Defense.

      INT- Intelligence. Gauges... intelligence. Roughly analogous to Special Attack.

      WIS- Wisdom. Gauges sensitivity to your environment, common sense and intuition. Roughly analogous to Special Defense.

      AGI- Agility. Gauges control of your body, including things like reflexes, dexterity, and lightfootedness. Roughly analogous to Speed.

      Job: The Trainer's class.
      Gear: Equipment the Trainer has on them.
      Feats: Traits and talents the Trainer possesses.
      All Trainers have the same base movement in combat (tbd), although it may be altered through Feats or special conditions. Other stats are determined in the usual way (point-buy or rolling stats, exact scale needs deciding on).

      Job Stuff:
      1. Leadership- Trainers in this category raise Pokemon in patterns typical of professional trainers. They're devoted to battling and encouraging their teammates. When taken to the extreme, their synergy with their Pokemon borders on miraculous. Examples: Ace Trainer, Type Specialist, Tag Battler
      2. Support- Support Trainers may not always be given to battling, but they're formidable in their own right. They help to enhance allies' Pokemon outside of combat. Examples: Move Tutor, Medic, Breeder
      3. Combat- These Trainers can hold up in battle by themselves, giving them an edge in street battles and non-combat situations. Examples: Psychic, Aura User, Black Belt
      4. Researcher- These trainers use their Pokemon to further their careers, and specialize in the use and development of items to achieve greatness. Examples: Scientist, Engineer, Ruin Maniac

        Unfortunately, PC doesn't have a lot of members interested in tabletop games. (We even had to get rid of the Tabletop Games section because no one was posting in it.) So it might be really difficult to get people interested in creating a whole new tabletop RPG.

        You could maybe try the RPG section itself, but I'd say double-check with with Skymin first before proceeding, just to make sure. I also don't think Game Development would help you out, since that seems to be more for video games than anything else.

        At any rate, good luck!

          Alright, thanks for the input. I think I'll just leave alone and continue dumping my brain in here. Of course if anybody does happen along I'd be happy about it!
