Staff members are your friends. Well, some of us. Really everyone but Michiko.. because Michiko's your best friend!

A Digimon RP with elements from nearly every franchise. The Forum is still in the Beta State, but is so far going strong. It currently follows a purely AU approach, not touching the Canon Series or any of the Characters, using purely Original Characters and even Custom (Original) Digimons.


The Plot is mainly occurring on File Island, where a band of adult level digimon, lead by a perfect Digimon, are trying to steer complete control over the island and it's inhabitants, their reasons unknown.

It can be found here.

Digital Link provides examples of:

  • Affably Evil: Sistermon is certainly a fairly charismatic Digimon, very nice to almost everyone she meets and is actually very reasonable. Unfortunately, she puts her survival above anything else.
  • Big Bad: For the current 'Tutorial Island' Arc, Captain-Hookmon plays the part.
  • Big Good: Jyureimon is this for the current 'Tutorial Island' Arc. Unfortunately, he isn't nearly as effective as his counterpart in his role.
  • Curbstomp Battle: Sistermon was victorious in a 5 on 1 battle against 2 fellow adults and 3 rookies. And she did it all in a single attack.

  • Did We Just Have Tea with Cthulhu?: Happened twice. First a casual tea party with Sistermon; then Flymon invites Icedevimon and a particularly unlucky traveller in the forest for a nice chat over tea and munchies.
  • Eldritch Location: The island's weather is far from natural and leans towards the impossible.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Captainhookmon caused a massive one on much of the island's population before the 'tutorial island' arc began. You were either on his side or against him.
  • Faux Affably Evil: The dear ol' Captain would have you believe he is a reasonable person.
  • Genre Savvy: The staff specifically try to avoid falling into overused conventions. At least one of them has read the Evil Overlord List.
  • Ghost City: Played Straight with the City of Beginning, being a mere shell of what it was before.
  • Heel–Face Turn: A short talk with some of the Digimon against the captain led to Meramon finally deciding to rebel against the captain, regardless of the consequences.
    • Shellmon also changed sides after a short encounter with some rather friendly tamers.
      • Or did he?
  • Jumped at the Call: Very few of the humans seem to consider their current situation as anything other than a slight bother, most of them being fairly happy with being chosen children.
    • Seeing that humans had arrived in the digital world, Meramon spent no time mulling over his eventual Heel–Face Turn. His short talk with some of the Digimon against the Captain cemented it.
  • Mind Rape: Captainhookmon is capable of inflicting a particularly nasty version of this on his underlings, ranging from intense pain to a full on Mind Wipe.
  • Oh, Crap!: Once the smoke cleared and revealed Sistermon completely unscathed from their attacks, the player characters all knew they were in for it.
    • A similar reaction happens when Sistermon's Cool Airship appears over the city in her eventful return.
      • And also when 2 generals down below DNA digivolve into the digimon Cthulhu himself, Dagomon.
  • Play-by-Post Games: On a Meta level, it's played Straight.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: Sistermon on some level.
  • Quirky Miniboss Squad: The generals serving under Captain-Hookmon serve as this during the 'Tutorial Island' Arc. They are IceDevimon, Sistermon Noir, Flymon, Meramon and Shellmon.
  • The Brute: Subverted with Shellmon, who fits the bill for Captain-Hookmon's Crew in appearance, but actually happens to be the weakest of them in all areas.
    • Played straight with Sistermon.
  • Turn-Based Combat: The combat mechanics of the forum rely on post order to decide the order in which events occur.
  • Transformation Sequence: It IS a Digimon RP. Evolution is a requirement, and the users go out of their way to make it read as awesome as possible.
  • Transformation Is a Free Action: Played straight both in-universe and on a meta, gameplay level.
  • Underground City: Under the city of beginnings, the ruins of yet another city lie deep underground.
  • Video Game Time: Liquid Time, played straight sometimes because the world could be ending and you could take your sweet time completing other quests (threads) and level grind before taking the call.
  • You Have Researched Breathing: You can have a Digimon with wings, but if you don't mention in one of its Passive that it can Fly, the wings become useless, same with breathing underwater and etc.
