    Here will lie the soon-to-be-many discussions of the Dark Forces RPG. Rules and systems will also be explained here, so it will be made clear to others on how the RPG works. If you have any questions or suggestions dealing with the RPG, feel free to ask.

    Equipment:

    So I thought of an equipment system for the RPG and I think it will be a perfect addition to it. Here is how it works:
    --------------------
    Wooden Stick (+1 Attack)

    Cyndaquil (LV. 2) attacks!

    Meowth takes in the damage and took 3 damage! (HP: 7/10)
    --------------------
    ^ Basically the weapon equipment simply adds in its additional value into the character's level:

    Cyndaquil's LV. (2) + Wooden Stick (1) = 3 damage

    I can also do the same with defensive equipment, instead the damage taken by the enemy will reduce that amount:
    --------------------
    Mewtwo's attack (50) - Cyndaquil's Mightly Cap (25) = 25 damage taken (HP: 70/95)
    --------------------

    So what would you guys think of this addition?

      won't this create a lot of spam??

        No, because if people were to spam here, either I or the moderaters will take care of those people. This is a discussion thread, as long as we post about the RPG, then we'll be just fine.

        I think he means a lot of spam in the actual thread, as some posts might be one or two lines.

            As soon as the battle is over, my character will lead us to the shop and I will show the selection of items that are available to be bought by others.

            As of now, after buying an item, you must show it's existence in your stats on your posts. (That is, if you wish to make your stats visible during non-battle scenes, but in battle scenes stats are required to be shown) Here is an example:

            --------------------
            ???? - Quilava (Male)
            LV. 12
            HP 21/21
            PP 8/8
            EXP: 1/10
            Total EXP: 111
            Seeds: 125
            ---------------
            [Green Herb] x 4 - Heals 10 HP
            [Potion] x 2 - Heals 50 HP
            [Grass Cap] (E) - Decreases the damage received by 1
            [Wood Stick] - Raises your attack damage by 1

            The (x) represents the quantity of the item, in other words, how much <item> you have with you. You can only hold up to 8 different items with you. Equipment items do fill up your inventory space also. The (E) means that the character has it equipped. If it does not have an (E), the item is not equipped.

                Well, here is how it works. After I post up a Battle Members list before we engage in a battle against foes...

                Battle Members:
                + ???? - Cyndaquil
                + (free)
                + (free)
                + (free)
                + (free)

                I give more than five minutes to let other users choose if they want to enter or not. After so, we get this:

                Battle Members:
                + ???? - Cyndaquil
                + Linus
                + Kip

                Then the battle gets started. After so, none can join in the battle but to either spectate or get themselves rest to heal their stats up.

                    During their "faint" condition, they can either be revived by an item/pokemon ability or just stay there, motionless in the ground. (In most cases, they are still able to speak in battle) It plays as a normal battle goes, as long as we are victorious and the boss is defeat, there will never be a Game Over for us. If that were to happen, I'll explain what happens to us then.

                        Always, it would be pretty boring if I kept the main story for the RPG unchanging. Different actions and such will change the meaning and path of the story as a whole. It's even possible to get this RPG finish up in a week, it just depends on what our characters do.

                            Every team is to invade and take over certain cities. The one we are going against are going after Broad Sand, so it's either we all get wiped out by them or we wipe them out. The other teams that have their targets set to another city/town (not Broad Sand) are the ones that we will never meet in this RPG, only then until the sequel we will ever meet them.

                                Hopefully, this RPG would be much more fun with more people. The RPG wouldn't really be as fun with just a few if you take a moment to think about it.

                                  As we progress will we be able to buy stronger items like maybe dragon fang, quik claw, and maybe upgrade ourselves with TM moves...

                                    Yes, buying more abitities is one of the key points of winning harder battles.

                                    The Dark Forces are a mixture of pokemon, there not a group of the same pokemon. They are to be left unknown though on which pokemon are they, for I would be spoiling the story too much.

                                    Don't worry, you will battle, just make sure you are here when the opportunity comes. When I post up a Battle Members list, then that is where you spring into action.

                                      Hey, I got a question about that.

                                      In an earlier post, you mentioned that we have about 5 minutes or something to decide if we want to enter the battle after you post the Battle Members List. But what happens if only a few of us (or no one else) is online or notices at the moment you put up that list? That means we'd miss out on the action whether we wanted to partake in the battle or not. When you said you'd give us "more than 5 minutes" to choose if we want in, exactly how long did you have in mind?

                                      Another thing whilst we're on the topic of battles. Are we allowed to initiate our own battles, or do we have to wait for you to manifest our opponents every time?

                                        This is but a flaw that I still need to think about. This is why I referred out "more than 5 minutes", clearly for the intention to give other users (online or offline) a chance. In some cases I can even give a whole day if it is needed for the situation.
                                        As for initiating your own battles, I would wonder how would that work. Having two battles at the same time can make the situation very confusing, but I get the feeling there is a way to get around that, I'm just not sure how do we get it to play without much problem.

                                          Ah, OK. I'm glad you realised that 5 minutes probably wouldn't be enough on most occasions. Hey, maybe it could work on a limit basis? Like for example, you could put up the Battle Members List with four empty slots and then only begin the battle once all the positions are filled? Once the list has reached its limit, the others will have to wait for the next opportunity, first come first serve basically. This system probably has its own bad points too but what do you think?

                                          You have a point about multiple battles taking place at the same time. lol It could turn out to be one big mess. I'm not sure how that would work out either. Just as long as we all get fair opportunity to level up equally, it should be fine I guess.

                                            Actually, what if the battle had started, but the Battle Members list of that battle had free spots left? Then in that kind of situation, someone is able to just jump in. Although, you can also cheat to this, while you can gain maximum experience by entering the super-hard-boss battle before someone makes the final blow.

                                            Right now, I'm just waiting if either will use their turn in battle, unless you guys want me to make my turn/enemies turn already. The other reason is so I can give those who are offline a chance to reply if needed.

                                                I'll make them slumber until further notice when the characters are back in control.

                                                Remember everyone, follow the four-line rule, even though repeating this gets irritating, it's for the sake of the RPG.
