Welcome to Survival of the Fittest, a RPing board loosely based off of Koshun Takami's Battle Royale, with its own unique plot and spin on the 'deadly game'. We've been around quite a while, and are now in our thirteenth year, so don't worry about us going anywhere any time soon!

If you're a newcomer and interested in joining, then please make sure you check out the rules. You may also want to read the FAQ, introduce yourself and stop by the chat to meet some of our members. If you're still not quite sure where to start, then we have a great New Member's Guide with a lot of useful information about getting going. Don't hesitate to PM a member of staff (they have purple usernames) if you have any questions about SOTF and how to get started!

Let the games begin!

Howdy folks, Namira here with another tabletop gaming offering, this time the theme is... Pokémon!

This right here is an interest check for playing Pokémon Tabletop United, a roleplaying game deisgned around bringing Pokémon to a tabletop setting with fun and excitement for all the family. There are a wealth of class options, a great deal of character customisation and specialisations and stats for every Pokémon under the sun. (don't worry about the math parts. I have access to spreadsheets that do all of that for you). There are even sourcebooks for taking Pokémon into science fiction and fantasy settings - the above link has a page with a set of downloads for all the various information you need - if you just want to check it out, download Pokemon Tabletop United (PTU) Core, which is just the core rulebook.

* Don't be intimidated by the size of the rulebook! A big chunk of it is move and ability descriptions and another section is mostly about GMing! *

So what I'm posting up is to see who would be interested in trying this here system out, and whether anyone's interested in an alternative setting (such as sci-fi) or the more traditional 'obtain eight badges' type affair. I'm reasonably familiar with it at this point, as I've played it for a decent chunk as a player - it's actually incredibly self explanatory once you get underway.

I'd be looking for 2-3 folks who can commit to skype/roll20 about once a week. Importantly this would need to be in the evenings GMT (from about 7ish), as I can't really mess up my sleeping even further for the sake of playing tabletop games =P. Pathfinder would also take precedence as that campaign's been going for a while now.

Lemme know here if you're interested, what times you're available, and if you have any questions!

(Deamon has expressed interest already)



Setting

- The futuristic-for-those-with-money city of Newlake.

Questions

* Where are we starting?
- Unless otherwise cleared with me, you are new trainers on orientation. You've only just received your licence to own Pokémon for the purposes of battling and are more or less under probation as a trainer.

I am very interested! I am free after 2:30 on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays, and basically all day on Saturday/Sunday. I'd favor a more traditional setting but am flexible in that regard.

Well you know I've been quite interested in trying the PokeRPG, so colour me interested. Gotta badge 'em all is my preference, call me old fashioned.

(Free whenever basically except Fridays cause of that other thing I already do with you)

Can't do Wednesday's or Tuesday's (have to check that one once I go back), or Fridays 'cause pathfinder but besides that should be good with most times.

Weekend is looking good right now.

I'm sort of inclined towards doing a more science fiction heavy setting because I'm already playing 'classic' pokemon. However, I'm not completely set on it yet... mostly cause it would involve planning and such.

I like classical too, but I wouldn't be against a cyberpunk setting.
