Voxica Island – A Pokémon Living Server: Season 4! [PTU]

We’re at it again with Season 4! We are opening up the Discord server that we have of Pokémon Tabletop United in the form of a Living Server. It’s meant to have several players being able to hop in with little-to-no experience and begin to have sessions with other Trainers and wild Pokémon at much more flexible availability and scheduling. Here’s the blurb that I wrote up for it when we were opening for Season 3.

We've got a server dedicated to players alternating between being Trainers on Voxica Island (a land created for our shenanigans) and GMing for their peers as we all go through adventures ranging from Tall Grass sessions, PvP battles, PvNPC challenges, and epic Quests. Your Trainer will join one of three Clans, each having a different focus and set of goals for how they hope to see the island of Voxica grow. To help with that, each Trainer will work with their Clan to spread their name and expand their headquarters to include bonus-granting buildings. Each clan receives different starting gear that reflects their motivations and objectives, but we encourage this to be a feature of your Trainer Creation and not strictly the motivation behind it.

We realize that the prospect of GMing for fellow players may be an initially daunting task. A surprising number of people join us with little-to-no prior experience with PTU, let alone GMing for it ('cuz we all know how difficult it can be to find a PTU Campaign that lasts longer than two sessions). However, we've set things up with specific rules for running all of these things that you can easily pick up that role as often as you are comfortable with.

On that note of "specific rules" that we've made, it bears mentioning - since we've been involved in more than a few renditions of these servers, we have created our own set of homebrewed rulings and allowances that keep the server fun and helps us moderators not have a headache. This includes such things as banning some classes and manual supplements, moving some features from specific classes to general ones so that everyone can take them, having sets of encounter lists based on area of traveling, and a number of other things. This does mean it's extremely important to read our reference docs, so please read up on those before creating or submitting a character.

One more thing that’s a huge emphasis in this Season over the others – we are really trying our best to make this a friendly place for all sorts of people being new to PTU. We are setting the expectation that if there are any complaints about players, they should be addressed by a PM to a Mod. We do not approve of shunning someone because they have a different playstyle or approach to the game as our own. Voxica is meant to grow each season, let's let it be a place for people to discover how they want to play and end up contributing to that growth. That being said, let me add in one final thing before you just click that Discord link - this is meant to be a casual server. If you are planning on signing in with your latest game-breaking, ultra-undefeatable build, please don't. That's not the nature of the game or players that we want to have.

Any more questions? Just hop in and join us, read the documents for yourself, and ask the questions directly to us! We're happy to help you understanding this system and how it works in Voxica. In any case, don't expect this post to really be moderated on this site... I created a profile just to post here. So find us there instead~
