About MonStrPub

Mon (a clipping of monsters) are collectible virtual entities, which typically come in a number of varieties and feature unique traits or personalities. MonStrPub is an extension to ActivityPub for supporting mon in a federated context.

The Specifications {#specs}

MonStrPub is defined through a large number of specifications. All MonStrPub implementations must support MonStrPub Core, which lays down basic ground-rules for transmitting mon information. In addition to this, implementations may support any of a large number of optional specifications, which add functionality on top of this system.

This design approach was chosen to help create a clear path towards implementation and to ensure interoperability between servers which implement some, but not all, of MonStrPub's vast set of features. It also makes it easier for third parties to define their own MonStrPub extensions without breaking compatibility with other servers.

MonStrPub is itself built upon another set of specifications, known as RPPub. RPPub provides an abstract vocabulary for use in roleplaying contexts and puts forth a set of basic requirements for handling these objects. The RPPub specification may later be used as the foundation for any manner of specifications, not just ones involving mon.

The Software {#software}

Naturally, having specifications is meaningless if there aren't any platforms which support them. For this reason, the KibiMon team is working hard to develop supporting MonStrPub implementations alongside the current specs. (And others may join in the effort as well!)
