[ERROR] No.75893374 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

It's fallen out of the shitposting sphere of influence so... What if /tg/ actually got shit done like the old days? Made a better game about lesbians with swords and other gay shit.

I propose, like with Car Lesbians, we put all the stats in the title... And if you think about what kind of game you'd want about lesbians doing gay stuff, then the title has to be Sword Lesbian Witch Princess.

>> No.75893392

I don't know what a lesbian is.

>> No.75893484

To elaborate on my thinking:

Sword: Fight, physically. Even when not with swords. Also be really cool like a prince.
Lesbian: Seduce, flirt, or be sexy in general. Someone with a very low score would be the useless lesbian stereotype.
Witch: Do magic, be mysterious.
Princess: General stat for social stuff other than seducing women, as well as organization, also be elegant/beautiful.

Classes/playbooks could be based on archetypes so you have Xena, Utena, or general things like the gay necromancer that has been cropping up more frequently these days.

>> No.75893498

Two stats: Stab and Gay
You play high stakes games of fuck, marry, kill with other sword lesbians and also WITCHES (one stat: Hex).
Gameplay is based off of betting, like in poker. This is to simulate the experience of playing gay chicken. You get a tokens equal to your stat. When something happens, you put in the chips, and anybody else involved can call or raise. Then there's a die roll, which you can influence with abilities. Loser loses their gay and/or stab.

Regaining gay tokens or stab tokens is based off your character archetype:
>Art Hoes
Regain Gay by writing poetry or doodling, regain Stab by reeeeeeeeeading criticism.
Regain Gay by hanging out in graveyards and being spooky, regain Stab by cutting.
Regain Gay by consuming yaoi, regain Stab by shitposting.

>> No.75904125

Since I was hauling furniture when I posted this, I'll go over my idea a bit.

Effectively I'd need to base it off Bushido Blade / Hellish Quartz (i.e. two vidya with some good sword fighting) to keep things fairly lethal, probably have to adapt For Honor's three-hit-location system to make it sing, but it'd work.
The core part would be that actually fighting is fairly dangerous, so half the time you'd want to confuse, bamboozle, or just try to fuck with your opponent. Couple it some relationship mechanics and the desired end of a duel wouldn't be actually fighting, but laying down your blades.

but it's never that easy. Duels would need to be fast and deadly, a single strike could cripple you or worse. I'd need to add in a few kinds of weapons, but I'd probably base it off of fencing at first to get the idea across. My tentative name for the project was Pojedynek Kobiet (Women's Duel), but I got swamped with some other projects to work on, so I can't really worry about that one right now.

I dont think anyone on /tg/ cares about authentically representing the inner life of lesbians, i think they want to create an rpg that reproduces genre tropes in an efficient way to enable in genre role playing.
Its called "rpg writing".

>> No.75908191

>a setting
The discussion was mostly about system.

For setting... I think the setting examples in the transbian book actually have seeds of a good idea. There could be a main world that's space opera with planets that have cyberpunk aesthetic or steampunk aesthetic or whatever, and a parallel dimension for magic and fairy stuff with lesbian paladins and lady knights as well as evil monsters to defend your princess from

You can boil everything down to two archetypes, Prince and Princess. The Prince has Sword, Romance, Witch (or maybe Tether, how strong her connection is to her princess) and, to avoid reusing the term, lets call it Ojou.

>Actual Sword combat should be deadly/very high risk
I'm not sure that should be true for a romance RPG, though.

>> No.75921335

Well, more towards the 'high risk, can be resolved very fast, has heavy consequences', and less on the lethality scale.
Alternatively the duel/swordfight happens in an alternate, metaphorical realm of sorts, where the swordfighting itself is a metaphor for personal conflict.
Like for example standing up to the bully that's been bullying you because she has a crush on you, and it's expressed as a sword duel between you and the bully. Come to think of it, the majority of Utena's duels fall into this quasi-metaphor state.

>> No.75921546

I think using the BptA "take a complication" style of damage could be appropriate to make that work pretty cleanly.

>> No.75922004

I think a more literal interpretation is the way to go here. The symbolism that works in a show might not translate well to a game, and disconnecting the duels from the rest of the narrative might be jarring from a gameplay perspective. Not that they can't also have a metaphorical layer.

>> No.75923291

alright, going to try the short version, so in this setting an empire from another planet is given the ability to use portals to other planets and a unique artifact in order to indulge the sacred mission in the name of a goddess of conquest, it leads invasions on other worlds until it looks like sort of a blend of outworld made up of archetypical monster races, lead by orc warlords, and around 2030-ish, they do the same to earth, earth has higher tech then expected but they close the gap with a variety of magical assets, most especially the artifact that lets them, on a global scale, shift one sex to the other, so after twisting all of earths men into women, they make use of the ensuing panic and inability to fight a war of attrition against an empire worlds strong to make gains,

Humanity isnt out of the fight yet, making androids and forming alliances with defectors to hold back the tide, eventually a cabal of world leaders managed to make a deal with a powerful devil, who promised 1. an End to the invasion 2.destruction of the artifact and 3. a solution to the breeding problem. She fullfilled this promise by destroying the artifact, overloading it and making it turn everything across all the portal linked planets female, sealing the portals shut right after and then impregnating the leaders with the first Cambions/Tieflings.

So with survivors and refugees left to pick up the pieces, the first generation after are all half hellborn or half celestial thanks to angelic or demonic booty calls being used to fill thingsout before alchemists managed to find an optional herm brew or blessing from clerics etc.

its now 100 years later or so, and a number of cryo shelters that were formed on the very eve of the invasion awaken to a world without men, many of them former men themselves, peace or what of it there is is kept by new and revived knightly orders across the post apocalypcic magical landscape, questing about in power armor for chivalric glory

I’ve an idea for mechanical considerations. Let’s say the 4 stats are rated on a scale of -1 to 3. A 0 is average. Your basic die for task resolution is a d6. You roll your stat whenever doing an opposed action, with the contest going to the higher roller. You “duel” other characters with the same stat, so a physical duel is opposed Sword rolls, while a seduction attempt is Lesbians. For every one point difference in your stats, the dominant lesbian gets to upgrade their die by one size.

For example, let’s say Shiori is attempting to seduce Juri. Shiori has a Lesbian of 2, while Juri has a 1. When Shiori contests Juri, she rolls a d8, while Juri opposes with a d6. However, if Shiori were to seduce Nanami, who has a Lesbian 0, Shiori will roll a d10. This way, the more skilled opponent has an edge, but not an insurmountable one, and everyone’s abilities are relative to one another.

Gear can give bonuses. Environment can give penalties. Let’s say Shiori attempts to seduce Juri by harkening to a locket picture of one another when they were younger, illustrating a storied past. The locket gives Shiori a +1 bonus to her d8 roll. However, the scenery is off-putting - like this is happening in a white van. So, the environment gives Shiori a -1, canceling her bonus.

By the way, I am drunk right now.
