15 years before Red set out on his adventure, the Pokemon World fought the bloodiest war in its history.
Powerful noble houses with warrior-trainers took their entire regions to war.
This is the Romance of the Six Regions. Join the fight; tell your story.
House Blackthorn has announced a tournament to celebrate its new Head of House.
Every noble house is expeceted to attend. Every aspiring trainer has a chance for fame and glory.
As the tournament draws closer, more and more people are traveling to Blackthorn City.
Welcome to the grand opening of Romance of the Six Regions!
Our first-week giveaway is up and running for characters accepted in our first 7 days.
No need to rush your apps though, there will be a second week giveaway too!
BREATHE. Calm down. Relax. Let loose and have fun. Leave drama and stress behind. We're here to have fun, to tell a good story, and we can't do that if we're preoccupied with other shit.
PG-13. We play this strictly to movie standards. The buck stops at sex. Fade to black, and we're all good. IC cursing is fine as long as it isn't excessive; OOC cursing should never be directed at other members.
ONE ACCOUNT PER CHARACTER. Register a new account for every character. Set your display name to your character's full name.
REAL LIFE FACE-CLAIMS. We accept actors, musicians, models, and other people that have a public image. We don't accept creepy stalker photos of your neighbor.
GOOD TASTE. This is a war site; there will be challenging and triggering content. However, we aren't here to exult in disturbing content. Please keep your disturbing contents literary and tasteful.
DON'T BE A DICK. The usual rules apply. Don't godmod, powerplay, plagiarize, or otherwise do anything that would make a five-year-old ashamed of your existence.
NO WORD COUNT. We ask a general minimum of 100 words and a maximum of 300. More or less is fine depending on circumstances.
ONE POST PER WEEK. We won't be checking, but try to post at least once per week in each thread you're in. Formal activity checks happen once a month, but you will pass as long as you're here.
LIQUID TIME. While the timeline of war can be significant, we allow liquid time here. You may be in as many different threads as you can handle, but try not to create time paradoxes.
SELECT CANONS. Only some canons are open for play here. If a canon is not included on our canon list but could arguably be older than 15-years-old, you may request that we add them. However, we are primarily an OC site.
REGIONS. Your character must have some ties to a region, which gives them certain bonuses. There is no independent faction. If your character is from elsewhere, choose an available region for them to treat as home away from home.
ROLEPLAY > APP. We are not strict when accepting applications. We are more concerned about roleplaying. If we see signs of Mary-Sues, illiteracy, or nonsensical personalities in play, we will send a PM. We expect you to adjust accordingly.
STARTING POKEMON. Noble-born characters and trainers start with two pokemon. Everyone else starts with only one. More pokemon and evolutions can be bought at the shop or won as rewards. Check the pokemon rules for more information.
NO STATS. We have no levels and no stats. We are writers, not mathematicians. Use poetic license and common sense for running battles. Dragonite beats weedle, but here a clever kadabra may beat a stronger steelix. Victors are decided between the players.
WAR SYSTEM. However, we do have a system for handling large-scale battles. We ask that you do not game the system. See our war thread for more information.
