.: Digimon Data: The Introduction :.
Welcome, this the guide referring to all the rules of the use of digimon data in the RP. All digital monsters (digimon) are made of data rather than flesh and blood, correct? There are certain ways digimon become stronger, one is by simply training and the other is by absorbing another digimon's data.
A digimon's data is everything that makes up the digimon, it is essentially the very core and substance of the digimon and is highly valued. Like most digital entities, the more data a digimon has access to, the more powerful it is. A digimon's data is locked safely within their bodies at all times, except when the digimon is destroyed or badly injured beyond any healing abilities. If a digimon is defeated in battle, its body will break down into pure data and can be absorbed by any digimon who wishes to increase their power by absorbing the said data.
With each digimon that is defeated and their data absorbed, a digimon becomes more and more powerful at a much faster rate, being able to progress faster than those who choose not to absorb their fallen enemies' data. If a digimon's data is not absorbed, it reconfigures itself in the digital world as a new digitama.
The more powerful the digimon, the more data it holds within its body. That means you'll get more data from defeating the stronger digimon and less if you defeat weaker ones.
.: Data Points (DPs): The Explanation :.
Data Points are what determines a digimon's strength and ability. Not only that those who have a higher number of data points can digivolve to higher levels while those with lower data point values cannot reach those higher levels. There are various ways to collect data points across the forum.
The first way is to simply be active and post. Posting in the RP section and just RPing is a simple way to collect DPs quickly. The second method is to fight an NPC digimon and absorb its data, which gives you more DPs than just simply RPing aimlessly. But be careful, it's not guaranteed that you'll win. The third method is to take on missions, jobs or bounties where you can collect both a money reward and a DP reward as well. The fourth and final method is to participate in the RP's special events! Special events include plots, arcs and tournaments which use DPs and other incentives as a prize! With many ways to get DPs you'll be sure to move up the ranks in no time.
