Jasmine's Useful Roleplaying Links

Post by Rico on Mon Feb 23, 2015 3:28 am

So I've been roleplaying for a long time and decided it's probably a good idea to provide some useful links for everyone wishing to start a roleplay, or to be involved in one.

http://www.behindthename.com/ - You don't always need a 12 character long name with no vowels to have something cool. Behind the name is a very useful tool for finding all kinds of real names from various cultures. You can do a search for meanings, or you can browse by culture or gender. It also has a randomiser which I've found to be quite useful.

http://donjon.bin.sh/ - Donjon is a general RPG tool which lets you get random fantasy sounding names, as well as generate random dungeons, planets and other such things. Indispensable if you are running a game with grid based maps (like Pokemon Tabletop)

Pokemon Tabletop Adventures and Pokemon Tabletop United
These are the two free d20 based tabletop version of Pokemon. Noticable features of these systems are Trainer Classes (Humans can be more than just a trainer, anything from a martial artist to an ace trainer, or even a psychic), Massive Damage (In other words: how much effort it would take to kill a pokemon or character) and a great deal of customisation (including in-game rules on how to change the type of pokemon, a feature many trainers can learn). As of writing these are both currently updated to Pokemon X and Y, with ORAS adaptations swiftly on the way. Both also have a great deal of homebrew rules, including Gijinka/Pokemorphs.
It should be noted that the pokedex for these games is actually very useful even if you're not using it. Notably it lists what everything eats, as well as their likely habitats. Very useful if you run any game where encountering pokemon needs to be logical.

http://www.d20pfsrd.com/ - The d20 Pathfinder SRD might not seem like your standard pokemon roleplay resource, but it's not an impossible task to adapt Pathfinder to a Pokemon setting. The Pathfinder SRD provides you with everything about the system, which is itself based on the classic Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 edition ruleset.

With all these useful creation tools, you may need somewhere to play these games. Pokemon Showdown's Roleplaying forums are great and all, but they're not always the best vessel if you're looking for something more in depth.

http://rpol.net/ - rpol (Roleplay Online) is a website dedicated to Forum based Roleplaying. A GM (Game Master) is able to essentially create their own forum, setting permission groups for their players and generally enabling all sorts of useful roleplaying options. PS RP forums are not presently capable of doing many of the things rpol can, such as private lines within a message intended for specific users, or for specific usergroups to only be able to view certain topics (we can do this but it is impractical for us). If you're intending to do any forum based roleplay that's going to be more advanced than a tavern scene, I strongly recommend giving rpol a look.

http://roll20.net/ - Roll20 is a virtual tabletop under constant development. A free user has access to all the tools necessary to run a tabletop game, which includes being able to draw maps, upload images (which can also be maps) and roll dice. You are also able to set up character sheets and various other features. If you subscribe (Don't do this unless you know you have a consistent group) you are able to use tools such as Dynamic Lighting (Tokens emit light), the Soundboard (I think that's subscription only, utilising soundcloud to create noise in game) and various other very useful tools.


These are the main sites I can think of off the top of my head. If you know any more you think should be listed, let me know either by posting below or PMing me on here, PS or on Smogon.

Comes as something of a surprise that you'd leave out Springhole. It has quite the wealth of generators and tips alike.
