On my last day with internet access I decided like I was feeling a bit productive, and so I got this up. No, this doesn't mean anything's happening yet, it just means I like to have things set up before actual thing happen. Fear not though, I actually have things for you to do here! If you could link your sheet in this post so I have a solid place to locate it, that would be great. Once all the sheets are in here I'll make a table to conveniently have them all right here. Secondly, if you were in my previous game, you know what time it is... Questionnaire time! While you don't technically have to answer it, there's no harm, right?
As a player, do you prefer combat or roleplay? What kind of split would you prefer? What is your timezone? If your character could have their dream team, what would it be? What is your favorite Pokemon? What are you expecting to get out of this game? Describe your character in one word. Anything else you want to say? Any questions you want other players to answer?
I'm going to be using this shade of blue for Ben's speech.
Now, for the questions...
I like both, so I'd say a 50/50 split, maybe 60/40 in favour of Roleplay Central Europe Time, GMT+1, aka hours away from everyone else Hmmm... Emolga, Rotom, Skarmory, Beheeyem... other than thatI don't really know... Gardevoir, Lucario, Absol basically share the first spot A chance to roleplay some extreme situations. Also, skyships Ooh, tough one... Innocent, for now
Combat or Roleplay? Ordinarily, both are fun. Although I find myself relying on Roleplay more... probably a good thing? Anyways, probably a 3:1 ratio of roleplay-to-rollplay. Sometimes even more heavily weighed. Especially when I have so few Combat classes
What is your timezone? Eastern Daylight Time, apparently. Or, 4 hours behind GMT.
Mira's dream-team? Mira wouldn't mind some Pokemon like Munna, Voltorb or Tynamo. A Happiny would be nice, too... so much fun training to get in. Maybe a Nosepass? There, one (really rough) team, I did it.
My favorite Pokemon? Probably Sableye. Or the Gastly line, or Spiritomb... a lot of ghosts, come to think of it.
What are you expecting to get out of this game? Oof, that's a doozy. I'm expecting to have some fun with character interactions, with some exploration sprinkled in. That's from the premise alone. As for anything beyond that, who knows? I'm excited to see!
Describe your character in one word. I wonder if this question is necessary? Or if Mira would answer... But in the spirit of completion, the best descriptor would be "Indolent.
Comments This colour will represent Mira-speech. Unless I change it before we start...
Last Edit: Jul 27, 2016 0:40:45 GMT by ThRevanchist: I don't owe you 1 team, anymore... Yay!
As a player, do you prefer combat or roleplay? What kind of split would you prefer?
I'm fond of both but I tend to lean toward roleplay.
What is your timezone?
US Central, UCT -5 right now (-6 when it's not DST)
If your character could have their dream team, what would it be?
Kaja likes Ice types and cute fuzzy things. Probably Avalugg or Mamoswine, Aurorus, Spheal (or evolution), Wailmer/Wailord, Torkoal (odd one out, I know), and... I don't know, maybe Swoobat? Something that can fly, assuming she doesn't get like a sky Wailord.
What is your favorite Pokemon?
Spheal! No, Chespin! No, Omanyte-aaaaah! (I am very, very bad at picking single favorites, especially out of 700+ options)
What are you expecting to get out of this game?
Fun times mostly. Kaja is mostly kind of goofy. (Drama can happen too but Kaja doesn't like being sad.)
Describe your character in one word.
Palooka! (It's totally a word, Donald Duck uses it all the time.)
As a player, do you prefer combat or roleplay? What kind of split would you prefer? I tend to like a balance. I'm just bad at roleplaying sometimes so punching things in the face is fun What is your timezone? Boring EST or GMT-4 If your character could have their dream team, what would it be? A dream team for Riven you say? She's honestly good with just about anything. Disregard the fact that most of her wishlist is cute and fluffy. What is your favorite Pokemon? This is a hard decision still. I like so many. Tyranitar, Lucario, and Typhlosion all rank pretty high. What are you expecting to get out of this game? Well I expect to fall of a ship at some point so there's that. Hopefully it doesn't take too long. It'll also be interesting to develop her around some many people that hate Aggria so vehemently. Describe your character in one word. Bound. Even if she has escaped from Aggria, her perceptions were largely shaped by it. Combined with accidentally dragging Hedwig along, it's going to make it hard to fully escape the past while she would like to find her old one. Anything else you want to say? Any questions you want other players to answer? This'll be fiiiine. Everything is fine. Turnips are fine. Text Color I want to do a fancy "Rainbow" but I might just settle with Golden though I'm not too attached if someone else wants it.
As a player, do you prefer combat or roleplay? What kind of split would you prefer? 70/30 in favor of role play.
What is your timezone? Mountain time -6 GMT? daylight savings time makes this hard to figure out
If your character could have their dream team, what would it be? Meta wise Steel and other resistance heavy types, but I'm not really aiming to be optimal. In character wise Hedwig wants loyalty above all else so whatever looks up to her is cool in her book. Out of character wise I'd enjoy one or more of the mischievous sorts that follow hedwig because they find her fun to tease.
What is your favorite Pokemon? See avatar.
What are you expecting to get out of this game? inter character rp antics, and character progression for hedwig.
Describe your character in one word. Dolt
Anything else you want to say? Any questions you want other players to answer? green hasn't been claimed yet right?

Hi there! I'm Seya, a 24 y.o. editor in Atlantic Canada. I enjoy writing, reading, webcomics, art, worldbuilding, and video games (I can talk for ages about SotC and Monster Hunter...). Although I'm relatively new to playing Pokémon Tabletop via forum, I've been putting together sites like this for a long time, and I'm really excited to work with you all to create an awesome environment for Pokémon roleplay. While my job here is primarily to keep the site running smoothly, I'm always happy to chat, offer advice, and deal with any problems you run across. Let me know if I can be of any help. Inbox is always open! Cheers! xx :)
Hello! I'm Sly, the East Coast mod representative! I'm a 22 year old tax accountant who is exactly as exciting as that sounds, I'm sure. PTU is my major hobby, I run several games (of which the Geode games are my pet project), and I read a disgusting amount of fanfiction. I've been a member of the community for about a year, consider myself more GM material than player material, and am dedicated to helping make your time here enjoyable! If there's ever anything you need, don't be afraid to send me an owl! (Or a PM, I guess, if that works better for you.)
Hey there! I’m DataNinja, the West Coast representative. I'm the most active Staff member on here, so if you need something, try giving me a poke first, and I'll see if I can help sort out your problem. Always happy to help!
(1 May 2015): "For our first pack, we’re focusing on utility character options. Hopefully, this will give you both interesting insights into our dev process as we make changes over time and another focused avenue to give us feedback on what you’d like to see out of PTU."
People are out there, yes, but if you're looking for a game, sorry to say that things seem to be winding down overall. There's basically been... 3 games in the last 2 years, none of which got off the ground.

Hello anyone out there!

Does anyone know where the latest Roll20 JSON Exporter for the Fancy Sheet is?
May 22, 2020 23:59:17 GMT
UwUs into the void...
May 14, 2020 2:56:43 GMT
It's very slow, yes. You'll probably finish working on your game before one pops up here, and if you create a recruitment for it you can expect to be swarmed with applicants.
May 7, 2020 4:47:37 GMT
New games seem to open up slowly here, but if new people are still welcome, I don't mind waiting around (or working on my own). It looks like there's some useful stuff to browse in the meantime.

Anyone else here a Hunter x Hunter fan?

Keep an eye on the recruitment area of this website. They're rare nowadays, but any new games that crop up will show up there. If it's a live game you want though, you're outta luck.
Dec 2, 2019 19:05:30 GMT
but how else do i find games then?
Nov 28, 2019 6:17:00 GMT
Sounds to me like they weren't a group you'd want to be part of anyway.
Nov 27, 2019 22:17:34 GMT
i wanted to join a living server on roll20 to learn the system but they ignored my application for 2 weeks then blocked me

Basically, GMs post recruitments in the appropriate section, and then players apply to the open games. Unfortunately, there has been a rather... small amount of games posted lately, but there's one currently recruiting right now.

How does this site work?

Post on the Game Masters Seeking Players page. There are plenty examples there to go off of.
