Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
The bitter stalemate eventually signified the end of the war. Already waged too long for any side to claim anything but the worst of pyrrhic victories. They'd all gone much too far to turn back, but lost too much to dare continue. The only prize left to take for those still standing was retreat and survival.
Peace was finally brokered, out of desperation, a lack of remaining options, and at a steep cost. What remained of the Empires shattered, trade routes fell unused, even the main roads were quickly abandoned and overgrown, leaving fractured collections of insulated city-states where nations once stood.
That was 20 years ago.
The lands outside the towns and cities grew untamed. There was barely enough people left to protect what was left of civilization, let alone venture out and pacify the surrounding wilds. The forests, plains, and mountains were reclaimed by their original inhabitants...
Times are changing once again. The region has recovered incrementally over the past two decades, slowly but surely communities have regained their feet and thrown off the lingering specter of war. Proud adventurers and canny travelers uncover the old routes, blazing trails to renew nearly forgotten bonds of kinship and trade with the nearby towns.
Tempered by the wisdom and pain of the past, but looking towards the future, the World of Pokemon enters a new age.
What is this?
A Pokemon tabletop game with homebrew system and karate chop action.
It's complicated. The trappings of Medieval Europe and Feudal Japan mashed up with lods of ePokemon with the tone and mysticism of Princess Mononoke is close enough.

And that's about that. Olive will be used for IC posts, with occasional use of Chocolate for emphasis. If this hurts your eyes on your monitor let me know and we can figure out something more suitable (I think it looks good though).
Characters will be accepted for an indeterminate amount of time. Probably at least a couple days, and I will give a day or two notice before I close signups and prepare to begin.
Any further questions may be asked in this thread, sent in a PA Forum PM to me, or asked on the official Voltage IRC chat at irc.rizon.net #voltage.
