It's run down the curtain and joined the choir invisible! This is an ex-forum!
While we're leaving the site up to keep all that happened here, this site is dead. We have moved! We're still going, with a number of changes, at a new location: enerarpg.proboards.com
This is Enera, a Pokémon roleplay where everyone has a dæmon like in the His Dark Materials Series.
After a long period of inactivity, we are back in action! Some major changes are being made right now, so bear with us as we sort out how the site will work, the setting and an all-new plot!
I've been working on a lot of stuff for the site. The new winter skin exists now! I'll be updating it with new images and possibly a different background, too ~Birdy
The Pokédex is slowly being updated. I've started working on profiles for all the NPCs as well, but pictures of them won't go up until my tablet stops having tantrums every time I open Photoshop. Oh, and I can't draw, that might be an issue. I'm working on a format for NPC PCs too, so that'll happen soon.
With the release of X and Y last month, the new Pokémon will be appearing around Enera now. I just need to update all the gym leaders and routes and stuff.
Remember to check out the X and Y giveaway!
Something is stirring in the North. Panserbørne, the great sentient armoured bears, are growing restless. Witches have been affected too by this mystery problem, and have been seen much further south than normal. One or two sightings have even been claimed in the northern most reached of Enera, but that can't be true, right? Witches are tough and hard to spook, so surely nothing would drive them out of their homes in the North?

The nights are drawing in, and the days grow colder, the leaves not quite ready to change colour yet. Cloudy days are common, the wind picking up. It is not cold yet, but rain is becoming more common. Pokémon are starting to prepare for the winter.
Are you knew to Proboards? If your not, it'll be easy to find your way around ^^ If you are, you'll get used to it quick enough.
You can PM the staffers for help, or and members, they should be willing to help.
I'm not too good at that either, but you seem to have found the Character Applications and stuffs, so I can't really think of any links to give... except the rules, but those are pretty easy to find ^^
I found the rules, but I am new to the Proboards layout and I keep having to have everything pointed out to me. ^^' I just don't find it something I can easily spot for all the buttons and things. But I am learning.
I did manage to spot the Staff links though, so yay! Apparently they are on every page...
Anyway, Thanks for the welcome! Now I just have to wait and hear about my character. *anxious* Bloodred invited me here so blame her for any insanity on my part. (Rule 1 on the internet: Always have a friend so when you go down, you down together, in style. Isn't that the best way for grand adventure?)
You can ask the obvious and dumb questions here, in the cbox, PMing people... whatever you feel like, really. Karma is a thing that comes with a proboards site- you can exalt people if they do something good to give them karma, or smite them if they do something you don't like or bad to lose them karma. Via is something which I added using a code. It's money for Enera- every post gets you £200, and you can use them to buy your character(s) items and stuff like that. We have a sub-site, too; enera.webs.com/
Well let me say thank you with a Exalt for your Karma then. I do have one last question about your Pokemorphs. I read the parts of the character application that mentions they all should be quite pained or dark, which while appropriate, isn't something I've ever thought of before. So I am curious if there is a post explaining all about them somewhere. I had an idea for a morph once, and I am curious if it would fit in here. Though I realise your not accepting them. Still, curiousity killed the Meowth. Plus I would like to learn about your world and style. Though I am enjoying it so far.

Well, we don't have stuff exactly explaining it, but if you tell us the outline of the character I'm sure we can help :3
The darkness is basically because becoming a morph is a pretty traumatic experience. It's also sort of a test of rping ability, since morphs are meant to be rare; if the person can write out a gripping or moving history they're suitable to play a morph character or at least I think that's how it works, haha ^-^'
Well that sounds like a good way to weed out the writers who can earn the reward. I suppose I shall have to put my best efforts towards the idea, if given a chance. My current character is a rush job, so I was rather nervous it wouldn't get approved. ^^' But it seems all is ok, with a little tweaking to suite the ideas here. Yay!
Well, that was to be part of the character idea. Though Traumatic is a very strong term. In my mind I had seen the change as a constant, gradual annoyance where matters only got more personally annoying and challenging to the characters preferred way of life, as the change developed.
How do Pokemorphs get um.. made here? I imagine mad science and mystical stones? Or is evolution or something else entirely?
Post by alphasuicune on Oct 17, 2010 7:07:12 GMT -5
Yeah, that sounds fine :3
I think the rules are pretty lenient on how Pokemorphs are created. Normally it's some sort of gene splicing and otherwise mad science, yeah, but I guess anything goes. If you can write a decent history about it, it's fine~
Yeah, what Alpha said, gene splicing. Painful operation, takes a day or a couple of months to complete the transformation. Generally traumatic because having your genetic makeup changed isn't pleasant, causes a lot of pain and disorientation as well as the fact that most of them are forced into it, although you could be original and have a charrie who volunteered.
Now I'm good at original. I've an idea that will suite I think. But I'd like to read ore about Enera before I consider trying for that. And well, I'd like to know all about the areas and such so its time to read.
Guest_Kaelyn: ---when I remember my password and get enough free time to do something? (hopefully)
Feb 2, 2014 22:31:40 GMT -5
Guest_Kaelyn: Alrighty. I hope you haven't forgotten me, Birdy. ^^() Ok. I'll keep that new url in mind. And I understand. The link you have there doesn't connect to anything. Perhaps you could send it to me via pm or something so that I can get it---
Feb 2, 2014 22:31:00 GMT -5
Birdybot: It's ready for RP but I'm still working on things before I want to start advertising
Jan 30, 2014 16:09:49 GMT -5
Birdybot: Hello! The promo will be up for a while longer
Jan 30, 2014 16:09:22 GMT -5
Guest_Kaelyn: and how long will the X/Y promo be for? I would love to get one... as soon as I remember my password....
Jan 27, 2014 13:24:40 GMT -5
Guest_Kaelyn: Darn.. I'm going to have to remember my password....... But I'm still here... If that matters. ^^()
Jan 27, 2014 13:22:56 GMT -5
Guest_Kaelyn: Orr.... just a new skin and stuff? It looks great, though, guys.
Jan 27, 2014 13:18:28 GMT -5
Guest_Kaelyn: Ok... I googled Enera cause I was on my work computer and came up with this. 0.o Did the site move, Birdy? Also, I am so sorry for the long absence. I hope you'll forgive me? What's been happening?
Jan 27, 2014 13:17:44 GMT -5
Rin: Alright, I will then It'll probably take me a couple days.
Dec 29, 2013 22:30:39 GMT -5
Birdybot: Yeah, go ahead ^_^
Dec 29, 2013 5:25:01 GMT -5
Rin: Cool beans, I made an account there. Should I just transfer all my PC stuff and character data / route stuff over?
Dec 28, 2013 22:35:53 GMT -5
Birdybot: All right! I've worked on a few templates and planned everything out, so now I've created the new forum! enerarpg.proboards.com/
Dec 23, 2013 7:51:22 GMT -5
Rin: I do like the visiting towns idea - that way players could get to plot more easily and characters could meet up, which would be cool to see more of
Dec 23, 2013 3:02:40 GMT -5
Birdybot: I think to make it easier for characters to meet, any town can be visited at any time (by train etc), but the gyms will still have to be done in order. Also I was thinking of letting people buy apartments/houses in any town if they want
Dec 17, 2013 18:27:24 GMT -5
Birdybot: Yeah, characters would be transferred over. It's a big change, but I think big changes are needed to revive this site and moving is the cleanest way to do that
Dec 17, 2013 18:24:19 GMT -5
Rin: Whoa, that's a pretty big change Would we be allowed to carry over characters? I'd like to keep Ajax at his current progress if possible...I do agree about the fakedex thing though, that's pretty outdated at this point, and people can always resubmit.
Dec 17, 2013 17:34:15 GMT -5
Birdybot: Yeah anyway so over this weekend I'll get a new site set up with new everything and it'll maybe look OK but no promises
