If one were to want to play test a new game

Im writing out the rules for a more simplified version of a Pokmon table top rpg. The current one circulating is reminiscent of D&D 3.5. Im trying for a 5e style game.

How would one start?
Do I advertise and just grab some people? Using character sheets outside of the rpgc system (manual) or is there a form or special request needed?

You can run any game you like, homebrew or otherwise. Make sure you're crystal clear in your ad that it's your creation, based roughly on the Pokemon world and game, so no one is surprised. Essentially you're just houseruling a Pokemon game to 110%, so it still fits within our site rules.

I'd recommend brainstorming some kind of application process that is mechanics free/light, so you get a sense of the players and the characters they want to play even if you reach a point during the playtest where the mechanics need to change. (Make sure you cover that in your ad, too, so players who are the most mechanics-focused don't pitch a fit.)

But otherwise, it's your game, advertise and go get 'em.

For character sheets I'd expand upon Aethera's idea and suggest making one thread in your game forum and type out all the character ability scores and powers and such in the first post. What you would want to see on a complete sheet once your homebrew is complete. Allow it to be your developmental thread with player feedback. A workspace for all outside IC game threads.

Then after you all have a collection of stats and definitions you're good with, start a new thread as the repository for character roster (with diy sheets) like most other games on here.
