~*Stat Overview*~


Evelon has 6 categories for pet stats that increase as you roleplay your pet, though users do not have to keep track of these if they do not want to. Only users that would like to battle in tournaments and site-wide events need to keep track of their pet's stats. If the idea of battles intices you, we urge you to keep on reading!

What Are the Six Stats?

* Offense - This is your pet's attack stat! The higher it is, the stronger your pet is. Raise this stat up to hit your enemies as hard as possible!
       »Damage is calculated as: Your Offense - Enemy's Defense = Total Damage.
       »If Offense is equal or below your enemy's Defense, you deal a base damage of 1.
       »Offense caps at 100 points.
       »Be warned! If Offense reaches 100, Defense freezes where it is, no longer able to increase.
               »This means if Defense is 70 when Offense reaches 100, Defense cannot go past 70!
       »This prevents both from reaching 100, which would be a long battle of taking 1 damage per turn.
       
* Defense - This is your pet's defense stat! The higher it is, the less damage your pet will suffer. Raise this stat up to survive as long as possible in battles!
       »The higher your Defense, the less damage received to your Endurance.
       »If Defense is equal or higher than your opponent's Offense, you receive a base damage of 1.
       »Defense caps at 100 points.
       »Be warned! If Defense reaches 100, Offense freezes where it is, no longer able to increase.
               »This means if Offense is 70 when Defense reaches 100, Offense cannot go past 70!
       »This prevents both from reaching 100, which would be a long battle of taking 1 damage per turn.

* Precision - This is your pet's accuracy! The higher it is, the better your odds of hitting your opponent. Increase this stat to hit as often as possible in battle.
       »If your pet low Precision, it will likely miss its target, dealing no damage in battle.
       »Precision caps at 50 points.

* Endurance - This is your pet's vitality! The higher it is, the longer your pet will survive in battle.
       »Endurance is essentially your hitpoints - how much damage you can take.
       »If your pet reaches 0 Endurance, it will faint (tournaments) or die (war battles)
       »Endurance caps at 100 points.

* Speed - This is your pet's agility! The higher it is, the faster your pet will move.
        »The pet with the highest Speed attacks first in battle.
       »Some [url=link to Traits section]Battle Traits[/url] may allow a pet to go first regardless of their Speed stat.
       »Speed caps at 100 points.

* Fame - This is your pet's... well... celebrity stat. Is your pet famous in Evelon? Fans love to cheer for their favorite pets! When battling, favorites can't let their fans down, can they?
       »For every 5 points of Fame, you will gain an extra 1 point of Endurance in tournament battles.
       »Fame caps at 40 points, meaning you can get up to 8 extra points of Endurance.

* Action Potential (AP) - This stat can be considered similar to mana or magic points in many games. Certain Traits cost Action Potential to use. The amount of Action Potential your pet has increases at a fixed rate, indicated by the chat provided below.

~*How To Raise Levels*~


You now know stats exist, but how does each one increase, and what stats do your pets start out with? This section will give you all the information you need on how to find your pet's stats and start leveling them up.

* First; To find your pet's stats, you have to find out what category it falls under. Categories are locked topics in this forum based on the sections of pets available from our adoption website. Alternatively, you may find a pets stats by going to its page on the adoption website, such as the Tali. Stats are made available on the adoption website, though we provide them on the forums as well in case of slow internet connections.
       »Pets start with these base stats upon adoption and are considered to be Level 1.

* Second; Your stats will only go up with your roleplay your pet. The character is up to you - perhaps your Draculi is a doctor or your Choopa is in to childcare. Under each section of the Roleplaying Areas, you will see a small tag at the end of the description. Depending on the area you are roleplaying in, your pet will get specific stat bonuses per level.
       »Your pet gains 1 level per 5 posts in a roleplay.
       »Each time your pet levels up, it gains +1 to each stat.
       »If a stat has a bonus listed, you gain that bonus instead of the +1 in that stat
               »For example, Nodia Sea gives +2 Endurance. This gives +2 Endurance, +1 to everything else

* Where to keep track; If you would like to keep track of your pets stats, you may keep them in your Zoo Pen for safe keeping. You will be able to edit all of your posts there, allowing you to alter your pets stats every time it levels up.

* Frequent Questions;

1. I have more than one pet, and I want to RP them together. Will they all gain a level?
You can RP as many pets as you want in the same RP! You can RP a single pet, or you can RP 5 of them together! If the 5 pets all do an action in the post (such as dialogue, etc), then yes, they are all eligible for +1 post towards a level up!

2. Do I keep the stats bonuses from Nodia Sea if I go RP elsewhere with my pet?
You keep any bonuses from previous levels, but if you leave before leveling up you will not gain the Nodia Sea's bonus when you level again. Stat bonuses only occur when you're RPing there. This means that your pet will gain +2 Endurance so long as it is RPing in Nodia Sea. If your pet leaves and RPs in Roraldi Forests, your pet will receive the Roraldi Forests stat bonus: +2 Precision.

3. I traded a pet I'd RPed before. What happens to its posts?
A traded pet keeps its posts! :D So when you trade a pet, inform the new owner of its stats and posts!

4. I completed an RP, and my pet has 7 posts. What happens when I RP it again? Do I have to RP it until post 12 to gain a level up?
Nope! When you quit or complete RPs, the number of posts isn't influenced in any way. A pet will gain a level up every 5 posts. If you RP your Tali in Terrace Park until post 7, your Tali will still gain a level up in Nori Volcano at post 10. It's the number of posts as a whole that counts.

~*Level by Post-Count*~


Some people have a hard time remembering how many posts = how many levels. So here is a useful little list to help you out if you need it! The most important thing to remember is every pet starts at level 1 with 0 posts.

~*Elements and Traits*~


* Elements - Each pet is given the option of controlling up to 2 elements, ranging from the typical earth, water, and fire to more uncommonly used elements such as metal and energy. The use of these elements in battle can cause more damage to an opponent with a weakness, or even cause you to take more damage.
       »Pets may have a maximum of 2 Elements.
       »This maximum includes racial Elements, though you may change any of your pets Elements
       »There are elemental attack Battle Traits that are influenced by your pet's Element.

* Choice of Elements - There are 11 available Elements;
Image

* Elements in battle - With the exception of Energy, Light and Dark, each element has another element that it is strong against, weak against, and that makes it stronger. To display these strength and weaknesses, we have created a diagram.
   »Attacking;
       »If your Element matches your attack’s Element, you do an extra 25% damage
       »If your Element has no connection to your attack’s Element, you do normal damage
       »If your Element is strong against your opponent's, you do an extra 25% damage
       »If your Element is weak against your opponent's, you do 25% less damage
   »Receiving Damage;
       »If hit by an Element that yours is weak against, you take an extra 25% damage
       »If hit by an Element that yours is strong against, you take 25% less damage
               »Dark and Light do not follow this rule; they always take extra damage
       »If you are hit by an Element that yours strengthens, you take an extra 25% damage
               »Dark and Light do not follow this rule
       »If hit by the same Element as yours, you take normal damage.
       »If hit by an Element that has no connection to yours, you take normal damage
   »Pets Without Elements;
       »Pets without Elements cannot affect the damage of their Elemental attacks.
       »Pets without Elements cannot affect how much damage they receive from Elemental attacks.
       »In all cases, only the opponent’s Element matters when calculating damage.
   »Elements in Double Battles; This section pertains to Double Battles only
       »If your ally's Elemental attack is strengthened by yours, the ally does an extra 25% damage
   »Rounding; In all cases, damage increased or decreased is rounded up


* Traits - A Trait describes what sort of abilities or attributes your pet has. These traits are broken in to two categories; Passive Traits and Battle Traits. Passive traits do not influence battle on Evelon and are solely for users to use as descriptors of their pets. Many pets will be granted Racial Passive and Battle traits based on their species and coloration. These racial traits will be listed with a pet's stats on the adoption website or in the appropriate thread. As the owner of this pet you will be able to choose to expand on the traits they have. These are considered Personal traits.
       »Passive Traits are broken in to 7 categories:
                       »Acclimation, Diet, Healing, Magic, Personality, Physical, Social
               »With the exception of Diets, you may use as many Personal Passive Traits as you like
               »Because Diets have the potential to affect battle, pets may have a maximum of 2 Diets.
                       »If a pet does not have any racial Diets, you may choose up to 2 for it.
                       »If a pet has 1 Diet, you may change the Diet and/or add a new 1.
                       »If a pet has 2 Diets, you may change 1 or both of them.
       »Battle Traits are broken in to Normal and Elemental categories.
               »For descriptive purposes, you may give your pet as many Personal Battle Traits as you want
               »Of these, only six (7 for custom pets) may be used in battles
                       »Racial Battle Traits do not count towards this total

* Additional Information; Trait Qualifiers - The Elements and some Traits have the potential to be defined further, depending on your personal idea of your pet. These qualifiers have no effect in battle and are for roleplaying purposes only. Here is a list of current qualifiers;
       »Ex-[Trait] – This shows a trait no longer applies to your pet, even though it once did.
               »For example, you may use 'Ex-Chef' if your pet once was a chef but gave up cooking.
       »Master [Trait] – This shows your pet has superior skills regarding a particular Trait.
               »For example, if your pet's cooking is the best in the word, you may use 'Master Chef'.
       »[Trait] (Qualifier) – You may use a parenthetical qualifier to further define a Trait for your pet.
               »For example, the Undead Trait could be 'Undead (Zombie)' to indicate it is a zombie.
               »This type of qualifier can apply to Elements as well.
                       »For example, the Earth Element could be  'Earth (Plants)'.

~*Size Categories*~


If you would like to know the typical size of an entire species of pets, you can find information on their length, height, or wingspan on the adoption website, as well as how much they weigh. When it comes to stats, pets are often given a size category though. These categories only need to be worried about if you would like to battle with you pet though, as some traits are influenced by a pet's size category. They will be listed next to a pet's name in parenthesis as a single letter. If you would like to know what the letters mean, just follow the key below!

T = Tiny = tiny (2' or less)
S = Small = smaller than a typical human (2'+ to 4')
M = Medium = man-sized (4'+ to 7')
L = Large = larger than man-sized (7'+ to 12')
H = Huge = huge (12'+ to 25')
G = Gargantuan = gargantuan (25'+)
