The topic of a Pokemon RPG was raised during the last Saturday night game, and I was surprised by the amount of interest there was in it.

This is something I used to run, waaaaaaaay back as one of the first RPG's I ever ran with Gary and David (back when there were only 150 pokemon, whipper snappers!), and it was very successful and a lot of fun.

Is this something people would be interested in? I'd never considered bringing it back, but I certainly could update it if there was enough interest.

Let me know in here.

Cheers,
Jamie

Cool, but we'd need at LEAST 1 or 2 more players to make it worth the time investment.

I've found a nice simple ruleset that I can tweak to add some elements I'd like to have, but I won't start setting it all up without having enough players.

Louise said that she'd be willing to give the game a go; with you, Dave, me, Yari and Dan, that makes the minimum you would want biggrin.gif

Can I have my Charizard now? tongue.gif

Cool! Well I guess I'd better get to work then.

I'm going to run this one as a Hex Crawl, mixed with a few other systems I've come up with. Should be fun!

When I've finished developing it, I'll give you all some more info.

Ok, I'm going to take votes in here for this. I've been talking to my friend Scott (a die-hard pokemon purist) about this and he thinks it's the worst idea in the world, whilst I think it's a cool and fun idea. You guys tell me what you think.

For choosing your starter pokemon, I was going to make it a lucky dip, with all new starters (not the traditional starters). You pull out a pokeball, open it up, and that's what you get (much like Ash had to make the best of getting Pikachu).

Good idea? Or am I a criminal?

When you say all new starters does that mean I could start with an Abra? Cause I always wanted to do that!
Charizard is really great but I always told all my friends that if Pokemon were real, my starter would be an Abra!

They always looked at me funny blink.gif

Well.... I can't PROMISE you an Abra. Like I said, it'll be a lucky dip. But yeah, I do mean not the normal starters.

Yeah, I'm all for it! A ghost or dark starter would be cool as well or maybe even a two type starter like Pidgey; flying/normal, or Oddish; poison/grass. Not that I have to explain that to you guys.... armata_PDT_04.gif

I think balancing the starters is a non-issue in a pen & paper RPG personally, but I'll try and keep them as fair as possible.

I'd be using all Gens before X & Y, in a new original region.

For all you Pokemaniacs, I just found this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OFTt7NGeOBY...eY7eNEcse3xXm1a

You can buy the album here: https://itunes.apple.com/au/album/pokemon-r...nto/id569966514

Argh, my heart!!

This guy has also just announced that he's starting work on one for Gold/Silver.

For those of you who opted in to my 'Project Pokemon' art experiment, you can see the results of everyone's prints on my Tumblr as they go up here: http://jdhultgren.tumblr.com/

Just be patient - a lot of you opted in so it's going to take some time to get them all out.

Cheers,
J

Those looked awesome, I cannot wait to see how Lou and I look all decked out in our trainer gear! I must have listened to that orcestral pokemon music half a dozen times last night/this morning, it was awesome, I've always loved some of the music from Pokemon yet I tend to play my games muted so some of those scores I hadn't heard in ages biggrin.gif

Can't wait to start playing this RPG with everyone!
