Horizons is officially CLOSED. The board will remain accessible as an archive, but staff has moved on. If you're looking for a new Pokemon RP, try Lucky Strike or any number of others.
Welcome to Veria!
Pokémon Horizons is an expansive RP driven by member-planned plots and regular site events more than any singular site-wide plot, meaning there is always something to do and always room for new ideas.
From classic Pokémon staples to simple slice-of-life to grandiose encounters with Legendary Pokémon, there's a little something for everyone. We've been open since December 2015 and are always eager to welcome new friends~
Salary is a static monthly payment redeemable by Civilians and Pokemon League members. Civilians earn Φ100 a month, while Gym Leaders and Professors earn Φ50 a month. You may only redeem one Salary per member per month, and highest takes priority. If you have a Civilian alongside a Gym Leader and/or Professor, you only receive the Civilian Salary. If you have both a Gym Leader and a Professor, but no Civilian, you only take a Φ50 once.
Payment is earned by Gym Leaders for both starting and completing gym challenges, earning Φ35 each time as incentive for both starting and completing matches. This is earned no matter who wins the match.
Winnings are earned by Gym challengers of any class for winning a gym challenge and earning a badge. Every badge comes with Φ100.
Research Allowance is a point system earned by Professors and redeemable for a variety of things. 1 point is earned every month, and points can be saved for better rewards later, with the highest rewards costing 3 points. If you don't spend your money for longer, your points keep building, but your Professor must have been active in a given month to earn their allowance point. A full list of available things can be found below.
In order to claim any of these things, simply post in the thread with a note that you're doing so, and Mod Summon for a response. Be sure to include links as proof for Gym Challenges. Months are counted from the first to the last day, so if you claim a Salary on Jan 30, you can claim another on Feb 1; it simply has to be in a new month, not a 30-day cooldown.
Professors must also include a "reason" for their Allowance claims. These reasons do not have to be very good, and may be simple, elaborate, or even humorous. "I study evolution, so I need this Corsola to study why it doesn't evolve" or "I need a Machoke to help lift lab equipment" or "I need this Mega Stone to help me defend my work from academic thievery", etc.
(Note: From Jan 2016 through Jan 19, 2018, Gym Leaders received a salary of Φ30, and a one-time challenger payment of Φ20. Older posts may reflect this.)
For every month of activity, Professors earn 1 Research Allowance point. These can be traded for the following. Once spent, a point is gone. It would be very helpful to mods to link to your previous claim and state which months' points you are using when redeeming more than 1.
1 Point - 1 common basic Pokemon
1 Point - Φ35
1 Point - 3 Moves taught to 1 Pokemon
1 Point - 1 Gem of choice
2 Points - 1 mid stage evo common
2 Points - 1 basic common w/ HA 2 Points - 1 basic rare
2 Points - Φ75
2 Points - 1 Egg Move taught to 1 Pokemon
3 Points - 1 final evo common
3 Points - 1 mid-stage rare
3 Points - 1 basic rare w/ HA
3 Points - Φ135
3 Points - 2 Egg Moves taught to 1 Pokemon
3 Points - 1 Z/Mega item of choice (no Key Stone/Charm)
