The news makes its way to everyone here in Fizzytopia, one way or another; whether it's delivered directly to your Secret Base via the Pelipper Mail system, or secondhand through juicy Bar gossip, we all have our own sources for the latest goings-on in the world. But if you're looking for the latest, most accurate and up-to-date news available, look no further than the The Fizzytopian Post!

From our humble beginnings as a singing telegram service that made the unfortunate mistake of hiring a team of Jigglypuff, our services have grown substantially, both in-print and online – from Pokegears to Holo Casters, from hand-delivered missives to our highly trained Alakazams telepathically transmitting across the continent – The Fizzytopian Post is YOUR source for the news.

Listen in, and see what's happening!

With the new zone and ZA election, we will be announcing a few new rulings on Zone Administration and clarifying some of the old. These rulings are not meant to be punitive, but rather to help stipulate our expectations and reach an agreement on when the moderators should intervene.


Zone Administration
  • The Zone Admin is responsible for the daily operations of their zone. Duties will include hiring new updaters, replacing old updaters, ensuring fair play, ensuring fair and equal zone rewards, adding and/or substituting areas in their zone, etc. For instance, if an adventure has been abandoned or an updator has gone MIA, the Zone Admin will be the one responsible for finding a way to have the adventure continue. Zone Admins should be considered the second contact point for complaints or questions; after the updater and before the moderators.
  • Because of this responsibility, we expect our ZA’s to be present on a semi-regular basis. We understand this is not always possible. We wish to remain flexible on these rulings, but when possible we’d like for the ZA to take the necessary steps to ensure a smooth operation of their zone.
  • If the ZA anticipates to be absent for a while, however long they determine that to be, they are free to tag someone else as the temporary ZA who’ll take over the duties and responsibilities, assuming the new ZA has been made aware of it beforehand and agreed to the temporary transition.
  • In the case where the ZA cannot find a replacement due to time constraints, lack of resources or other, they may contact the moderators. In this case, the moderators will take on the task of finding a replacement for the ZA; whether it’ll be the moderator itself or another member.
  • In case of an (unexplained) absence of the ZA for 4 weeks or longer, the moderators obtain the right to find a temporary replacement for a ZA until they return.
  • In case of an (unexplained) absence of the ZA for 2 months or longer, the moderators obtain the right to make any executive decisions on the zone. This can include installing a new, permanent ZA, or foreclosing the zone.
Zone Evaluations
  • Zone and Updater evaluations will be done three times a year, coinciding with the start of a new Bi-Monthly Updater Rewards. These evaluations will be held in the months of January, May and September.
  • The moderators expect to be able to work together with the Zone Administrators on these evaluations.
  • Based on these evaluations, the moderators retain the right to make any executive changes with regards to a zone if deemed appropriate. These can include permanent replacement of updaters and/or Zone Administrator, and foreclosing the zone for substitution in a next round of zone elections. In all cases, where possible, the moderators will attempt to work together with the zone’s Administrator and updaters for any changes that need to be made.
Seasonal Zones
  • Minnao Isles will permanently close and be moved to storage on the 1st of March, 12:01 AM GMT.
  • The new seasonal zone will go up on BMG on the 1st of March, 12:01 AM GMT.
  • From this point on, we will be looking to more properly set deadlines in advance so that updaters and players are aware of the zone's circumstances.

For those who recall, we made an earlier announcement in which we established January, May and September to be our months of critical analysis of the zones (and shops). The moderators have discussed some of the issues that have cropped up with regards to zones and shops and we have decided to implement the following changes.


New Fizz City
Due to Rotom310's absence, Maskerade has been tapped as NFC's temporary Zone Admin for the for the foreseeable future. A reassessment will be made of NFC in the next few months.


Le Marecage Noir
LMN will be closed down permanently. This change will be implemented gradually. As of now, no new adventures may be started in Le Marecage Noir. Once the current, active, adventures have been wrapped up, LMN will be moved to the archives. It is our hope that we may find a substitute for LMN once this happens.


The Hatchery
Sneaze will no longer be updating the Hatchery as of this moment. A position as updater of the Hatchery will be posted soon in the FB Job Bureau. Until a substitute has been found, the moderators will be taking over the responsibilities of the Hatchery.

The winds of change are blowing across the land of Fizzytopia. There are a few announcements to be made regarding the following zones:

Arboreal Cradle
  • Congratulations to TheKnightsFury, who will be running The Arboreal Cradle: The Eternal Forest Zone.
  • This zone will act as one of the four main zones in FB and will be opening soon on the UPN forum!
Bedlam Ridge
  • Due to increased hostility from warring gangs, the Marshal has placed a blockade around the city’s entrance in order to keep visitors out of harm’s way.
  • Bedlam is now closed to new adventures. Stay tuned for more details…
Arcane Realm
  • Beyond the eternal forest lies an ancient kingdom, known as the Arcane Realm. A route has been secured allowing travelers passage to explore this mysterious territory.
  • Arcane Realm will be opening as FB’s newest Free-For-All Zone here on BMG with Lil’twick as its ZA!

Hello everyone. As we all know, FB is a constantly changing place and its needs are constantly changing. This is why we're going to make a set of announcements:

1) Ex-Ad has not been in contact with us for months despite multiple attempts. Due to this, Gary and I are making the announcement that its likely Ex-Ad has just left. Currently, plans are in discussion about what to do in regards to this but nothing concrete has been set in stone.

2) Currently, right now, our main focus as moderators is on making sure everything is up to date and easy to access. It has come to our attention that things are not up to date and we are beginning to work on that. A thread will be put up to collate changes that community members think need to happen in order to make information accessible and current. We will also be focusing on making a beginner's guide as to what things do in FB.

3) Currently, discussions on new things will be slowed down and given less importance until this is finished and discussions have taken place as to what to do moving forward from EAI. While it's amazing to see how innovative our members are, currently, Gary and I are both leading rather busy lives and we both often don't have it to be moderator and game designer every single day. This does not mean that any discussion is shelved, nor is this targeting any one discussion in particular.

We really do thank you guys for your patience and support. You guys are great. <3
