    Dungeon Masters (DMs)


    Dungeon Mechanics

    Welcome to the URPG dungeons where the brave enter but only the valiant leave. In here you will find treasures beyond your imagination. But beware, danger also lurks in the corridors. Will you make it out alive with the dungeon's treasure, or will your body rot in the dungeon for all time like the millions before it? Enter if you dare.


    The dungeon run

    A dungeon run consists of an exploration of three-floored dungeon. Each floor contains a boss room which houses the boss Pokémon. In order to advance, you must find three keys on the floor and then find the boss door to face down the Boss Pokémon. Defeating the Boss Pokémon advances you to the next floor or you may warp out and take whatever Gems you have.

    A run ends under any of the following conditions: all Pokémon of all players are fainted, the third floor is cleared, or the warp pad is utilized.

    The dungeon layout

    Each dungeon floor is a randomly generated 3x3 grid comprising a total of 9 rooms. Five rooms contain 1-3 Wild Pokémon for the explorers to fight. Three of the rooms contain keys, and the last room contains a boss Pokémon. The Dungeon Master is to roll for which rooms the keys, Wild Pokémon, and the boss shall be in. They can choose any method of rolling but this is the dungeon default for rolling:

    Room 1; Room 2; Room 3
    Room 4; Room 5; Room 6
    Room 7; Room 8; Room 9

    The master can then roll a 9 sided die privately to determine the boss room, the key rooms, and the starting room. Since the boss door is locked and it would prove to be an obstacle if it was there, the boss room is never in center of the dungeon floor.

    If a floor is cleared, the Dungeon Master rolls again for the next floor for starting room, key rooms and boss room. Lastly, please keep the dungeon map private unless the map item is used by an explorer. Upon clearing a room, you will then have to choose which direction to proceed next. The Dungeon Master will tell the doorways; however, the DM will not reveal if they are locked or not. You must search for the boss room.


    Dungeon Rooms

    Each room contains Pokémon for the explorers to battle. The Dungeon Master is to roll for how many Pokémon appear in each room. Pokémon that appear in each room are at the Dungeon Master's discretion. However, the difficulty of the Pokémon must be according to what floor the explorers are on. It is not a requirement to use fully evolved Pokémon as wild Pokémon.

    The explorers must defeat all the Pokémon in the room before proceeding. Afterwards, the Dungeon Master reveals whether there was a key in the room or not.

    The boss room contains the boss Pokémon and is the primary objective of the explorers. The door is sealed with three locks that must be unlocked with the three keys found throughout the dungeon. Clearing the boss room opens the staircase to the next floor in addition to causing a warp pad to appear. After clearing a floor, the explorers have the option to proceed onward for more rewards or to warp out of the dungeon with what they have.

    The party can move to any adjacent room. The DM will state all the exits in the room (to the north, to the east, etc.). The party will then pick one to advance. If the advancement is permitted, they will move on to the next room. If a boss door blocks their path, the DM will indicate so and give a hint to what type the boss it. (ex. "the sand is shifting near the door" for a ground type or "there is a faint purple aura near the door" for a ghost)


    Boss Pokémon

    Each floor contains a boss room with an enhanced boss Pokémon. A boss can be any Pokémon with any perks as long as they are within reason. For example, the boss could be two Garchomp with a dragon dance already in for each. Also, it could be a Dugtrio with 200% HP and other abilities like Sand Rush, Sand Force, and/or sand stream.

    All Pokémon in all rooms should have some relation to the boss Pokémon (similar type for example). For example, if Dugtrio were the boss, ground, rock and steel types would make sense for other Pokémon in the other rooms


    Dungeon Battles

    Dungeon battling is done in a public chat in which each explorer will post his or her move. After the explorers post their moves, the DM will ref the turn like he would an FFA starting with the fastest Pokémon, and choose what moves the wild Pokémon use.

    For each turn, the DM will ref the turn normally and decide on appropriate moves for the opposing Pokémon. Due to the use of the ref calculator in the dungeons, all Dungeon Masters must have a valid ref license at all times.

    Prizes, the DM Test, and Other

    Prizes

    Now for the good stuff. Clearing floors earns you Gems. These Gems can be exchanged for TM prizes, dungeon items, Pokémon, and items from other URPG areas. Here are the Gem payouts for each floor of the dungeon:

    1st floor: 3 Gems
    2nd floor: 4 Gems
    3rd floor: 5 Gems

    These gem payments stack. Additional Gems can be earned based on completing certain dungeon challenges. Credit to Synthesis
    -Not using any items - 1 Gem
    -Defeating all the rooms on a floor - 1 Gem
    -Having only Pokémon of the same Type - 1 Gem
    -Discovering a Secret Passage - 1 Gem (as well as the amount of Gems you would get for completing that floor. For example, by finding a secret passage to the Third Floor from the Second Floor, you would get 4+1, or 5, Gems.)
    -Defeating a Boss without using Super Effective moves - 1 Gem
    -Not having any Pokémon faint - 1 Gem


    Becoming a Dungeon Master

    So you wish to join the ranks of the dark order of the Dungeon Masters? Awesome. To become a Dungeon Master, you must have a full and valid ref license. In addition, you must complete a simple practical skills test over AIM in which you answer questions over dungeon mechanics and take your testers on a dungeon run. For more info or to take the test, PM/VM/IM one of the DM testers

    The Golden Rule of the Dungeon Masters

    Use. Common. Sense. The goal of the dungeon is to provide a fun RP environment. While a Dungeon Master should try to make things challenging, no DM should make things impossible. Keeping this simple rule in mind will greatly assist both the Dungeon Master and his explorers.


    Dungeon Master Wages

    All runs pay based on how many floors the explorers ventured into. Each floor pays any one of the following (DM's choice)

    $3000
    $2000 + 1 Gem
    $1000 + 2 Gems
    3 Gems

    Wages are done every two weeks in accordance with the ref wages. Any Grand Master may do DM wages.
