Hello!
Welcome to Geomancy! We're an original region Pokemon game with a dark history. Feel free to look around, and if you have any questions, you can ask in the chat-box at the bottom of the site. We're also kiddo-friendly, but have mature areas for older players!

Mechanics

Geomancy's mechanics may seem a little daunting at first glance, but much of it is tracked and or handled by the system for our users, so there is very little one needs to do by hand.

At the head of the mechanics is the Battle Suite, version 4.0 RC3, which is designed to automate most of the tediousness. One still needs to track HP and multi-turn effects, as well as put off damage that is delayed until it should actually take effect. This is it. This is all that's required to track manually. Table-top systems are not particularly popular in play-by-post games, but we hope to change this with the advent of the Suite.

You can write around it. All the Suite does is tell you whether it hit or missed, ensuring that no one power-plays, and how much damage it dealt. It's up to you where it goes from there. Get creative. It can be fun and still lend to creativity; you can even invalidate the rollers' results with a dodge.

We will note, however, that there is a free-form mode available with Suite 4. But, if this feature is abused, it can and will be disabled for offending parties and all of their characters.
