Daddy, daddy, tell us a story!
Alright, which one would you like to hear?
I want to hear Growlithe and the Necromancer's Tower!
That one's stupid! I want to hear the Voyages of Lapras!
But we wanted to hear about how Pikachu came to be Sheriff of Gemweavers!
Settle down, we have time for all
those stories! Now, our story begins a long time ago, when the world was young, the gods were many and the lands were plagued by terrible creatures of the night...What is Pokemon Fables?
The conceit is simple- what if Beowulf or Lord of the Rings were written in the world of Pokemon? Quite simply, you'd have Grendel being slain by a Pikachu with his Sword of Flames, or Squirtle, Charmander, and Bulbasaur joining forces to break the siege of Minas Tirith. The goal of this mod is simply to make such a world possible through the addition of new items, civs, interactions, and of course, Pokemon.Yeah, but what exactly have you actually done?
Fort Mode FeaturesThat's cool and all, but it doesn't seem like much.
-New playable mons! You can begin play as any family member of the Kanto Starters!
-New wild mons! Weedle, Caterpie, Pidgey and Rattata, plus their families!
-Slight tweaks to Elemental Weakness system
-Elemental Weakness system: Each element is represented in game by a special material- this material does more damage to Pokemon weak to the element, and less to Pokemon that resist it. Procedurally generated creatures like Werewolves and Vampires may also have weaknesses to these elements as well!
-Each of the Kanto Starters is in, with unique appearence, body parts, and techniques, with Pokemon Stats converted to DF Attributes. Play as a Bulbasaur and weaken your foes with Leech Seed, play a Squirtle and turtle up in your shell, or play as Charmander and use your tail to light dark places!
-A Pokemon Civilization that forges its own path in worldgen.
-A handful of new weapons for use by the smaller Pokemon- a small Pick, a Hatchet, and a Rapier.
-A few minor tweaks and flavor additions.
It isn't- right now, we have merely a fraction of our final features implemented. This mod will be actively developed to include evolutions, items, crafting, enchantments, and of course loads and loads of new Pokemon to bring on your adventures.
Current Adventure Mode Development- the evolutions of the Kanto starters as well as the ability to evolve in-game.Well, adventure mode is cool and all, but I'm really more of a Fortress Mode person.
There are obvious discrepancies between how things work in Adventure Mode, and how they work in Fortress Mode, in some cases irreconcilably so. To that end, this mod features two different downloads you can choose from- one optimized for Fortress Mode, and one for Adventure Mode. Fortress Mode RAWS will focus on dwarves building a society and capturing wild Pokemon to help them survive, while Adventure Mode RAWS will focus on adventuring as a Civilized Pokemon in a world of Night Creatures, hostile civs, and brutish, barbarian Wild Pokemon.That's really interesting! I've got some ideas too...
We are more than happy to hear requests for specific items, functionality, and of course favorite Pokemon to be included.I'm sold! How do I get started?Download the Latest Adventure Mode Version
, or Fortress Mode
if you'd rather, and you're ready to go! The following is a list of Pokemon and Techniques currently in the game, with detailed information and strategies to help you on your journey. Note that the starters are rather small by human standards, which makes them noticeably weaker in melee combat- Pokemon are adventurous spirits, however, and it shouldn't be too hard to get a party of companions with useful skills to help you even the odds!
