Me: Basic premise is more or less "Pokemon, except with real animals and real biological factoids".
[Me: For anyone who may find that interesting: http://phylomon.forumotion.net/phylomon-f1/
[Other dude]: What do you use for Psychic-Type critters?
Me: Like I said, *real* animals. No Psychic stuff at all.
• [Other dude] looks at card mock-ups. "Where're the lists of powers and things like that?"
Me: The "powers", if any, will be the critters' actual physical abilities. As you may have percieved, Phylomon is at rather an early stage of development at the moment...
It would be pointless to avoid using the word "Pokemon" when talking about Phylomon, but I think it would be better not to describe Phylomon as "Pokemon with real animals". Sure, it's a pithy phrase; it just runs a nontrivial risk of hammering The Wrong Impression into people's heads. Something like "inspired by Pokemon" might be better.
Anybody else have any 'horror stories' they want to share?
