I ran Hentai High over here using an indie set of rules. I ran it over on RPoL as University using that same set of rules. Those rules have long since advanced well past the point I would want to try picking them back up again. Someone on RPoL asked me what I'd do for a Harem Comedy game set in a high scool and I did this.

So now I might consider running another game using BESM 3 in conjunction with those rules and some adult rules I made. I deleted the rules from my O/O page, but I might put them back there.

So, if this is harem game will it be traditional harem or reverse harem? Or is it general about PC's trying top popular folks who have harems around them?

Anyways interesting approach and I think with bit adding other elements like supernatural students (ghosts, vampires, demons etc) or just school for those with super powers could add interesting twists. But press on that it's not combat game but social (and part intrigue) one.

Not fond of reverse harems myself, so if someone wants to use those rules to run one, it'd be their call, not mine (they should make a different thread if they do though). I'd hope that with the "tweaked character death rule" on the rule set I provided, it should be almost a given that combat takes low priority.

Still, I like the idea of allowing supernatural students, so I may consider setting point values rather high.

Maybe "Harem" isn't quite the right word as it indicates 1 "master" character and a bunch of others of his/her preferred gender Perhaps "High School Slice of Life"?

Yeah, it would make sense it's generic high school setting plus supernatural students in there. Kind of like Rosario+Vampire anime. Albeit up to you decide are the humans only 'smuggled' into academy (and thus by default those students have 2pts in Dark Secret defect) or it's project where humans and monsters study together to help try reduce tension between majority (humans) vs minority (monsters) in future generations.

Plus there are dozens fans of the 'Living with monster girl' comic so that can bring interesting relationship/school romances. Or friendships or such. Anyways I would think various supernatural traits would spice up the school life (more so as some could allow 'cheating' unless teacher is capable detecting it or have powers of his own counter measure it). Or the cheating is allowed (pr even expected) so long your not caught doing it (as cheating indicates resourcefulness which can be useful in real life after school and work place).

Well, if I were running a Supernatural Academy, it would probably be a secret on its own. I could always just say that anyone who isn't exibiting powers hasn't discovered them yet. Your example of cheating makes me want to have a teacher with Dynamic Powers (Academic Honesty) and (Detention).

It seems like it would be difficult to detain some supers though... Benchmarks could help there (such as by setting limits on things like Insubstantial).

If they haunt school grounds yeah, but if they are roaming ghosts and thus are not bound to remain in school. Perhaps their detention comes in form of robbing their freedom by binding them into bottles, jewelry etc for next day?

Seems rather pointless for Insubstantial 10. Here's what I'm going to do:

300 point characters with Mythical benchmarks except:
Quote
Maximum Attribute Level may be doubled for the following Attributes: Armour, Combat Technique, Features, Force Field, Sixth Sense, and Special Defence.

I've read some of the BESM book, mostly when someone was trying to awkwardly cram BESM and D&D together (it was painful). I'd be up for giving a new system a try, if you don't mind a noob joining!

I'm also thinking about normalizing Stats at either 3, 4, and 5, or 4, 5, and 6, for simplicity which would take either 120 or 150 of the 300 CP.

Hm, well, the option I'd go with depends on how 'high power' you want the game to be. Since it's more comedic, I'd say go with the 3 4 5 option.

Well, I'll also have sexual rules I need to repost. Mostly faculty, but I understand some students may want those. Not to mention, there's a good bit of morphological detail, rather than strictly being a sexual supplement.

EDIT: Alternate Identity mentions the ability to buy Dynamic Shapeshifting for 20 points-would you allow that, steel?

EDIT: Also, I thought of a way to do what I want without the Shapeshifting, which is really just icing on the Faye-Cake. So, yay or nay, I can still make my concept.

Sure, but Dynamic Powers is a bit overkill. Basically Detention would be whatever the teacher decides is an adequate disciplinary measure for misusing powers. In theory it could nullify powers, or force you into whatever area was being used for Detention (i.e. it's the high powered version of real world detention).

That...works out perfectly for Faye. I should probably explain the concept: She's a Succubus who's doing her best to learn how to control herself and her powers, since, you know, the penalties for her flipping out and going loco are a little more extreme then others. Perhaps her mother sent her to this school specifically because of the teachers having access to the Detention power. Since I wanted Faye to assume any form she would want/need, the suggestion of Dynamic Power Shapeshifting sounded appropriate.

Well, with dynamic power - Detention would be need be cosmically scaled, so around 30pts per rank? Anyways I think detention allows do anything inside school setting as means punish students (not kill them but anything besides that works). It allows sealing powers, make ghosts stuck in bottle (despite they usually can go through bottle), turn them into animals and so on. But limit is perhaps the power cannot cancel powers which are lower thank this power rank but as GM you can give teacher the max rank on it and max rank being higher than any students ranks (but it is good limit in case if there is teacher which is less competent in doing detention as he/she is new).

Yup, all contested rolls and such are 2d6 and then rest is just calculating formula (HP, damage, defenses etc). Nice see you excited of the BESM system :). It can be handful when making chars on it but when do the system crunch it's easy then.

Well, the trouble with Dynamic Powers is that you're getting into "having any ability she wants" territory with that. You qualified it as being restricted to any human form, but the problem with that is that Merlin is a human form. I'm looking for a succubus build I found before, but the trouble is the wiki-holder didn't remew their subscription so I can't find the original build.

I was thinking that the limiting factor here is "A small locality" which is a 20 point category

That could be a fair limitation. I originally started to quote this for nay-saying, and telling you that the principal would impose limits on what could be done. But of course I'd have to set fairly strict meta-game limits myself.

Even the creation is coming easily-like I said, this was an Anima character and Anima is all about the Point Buy, so this, this is simple.

I'm thinking aside from Shapeshifting, also giving Faye Alternate Form (Demonic), Healing, Flight, and maybe a couple others before spending the rest on skills.

As for the shapeshifting itself, think Mystique from X-Men, and less the character who is my avi (my avi is Faye the Shapeshifter from Lemonfont's Shapeshifter series, and she is incredibly OP. I'm only taking the name.)

Well, dynamic power could placed limits like 'humanoid, any unique' meaning she could not masquerade as someone unless taking other power. But she can take any unique humanoid shapes. But alternative form for demonic form also works (or make her human form as alternative form which is dumped down version of her demonic true form). It's all way how you spin the spoon around :).

Anyways another reason why 'cannot affect XX ranked powers' for detention is that if there are players who play human and if teacher decides use detention power to 'take your true form/monster form now!' then Detention power does not work on them; as another limit is that detention cannot make student do things which are plain impossible (you cannot make human student run with a speed of a car, albeit they would try run that fast). So human students can get clause that their power is 'so awesome' that teachers cannot shut it out (bragging rights until a more wiser/clever teacher realizes he is attempting use power on human which does not have monstrous form and true form is the one they see already).

Yeah, no turning into the Queen of Detention (to steal something straight from WINX), at least not with some kind of disguise ability or some really good social skills.

I know Healing works differently with the way Steel's intending to do this, still taking it.

There will always be a teacher that's better than the students in their ability to shut out their powers and make them go to the principle's office. But since teacher PCs aren't out of the question, it's all down to whether the teacher wants to build that way. A brand new teacher (which is what a player would be) is subject to the same benchmarks and CP

Can work differently. the link I posted was about popularity, and the healing mentioned there healed popularity specifically. Healing in general is basically unchanged (though you should probably not buy levels that heal dismemberment or death since those won't happen)

Oh and benchmarks won't allow that level anyway.

Well, it would be paradox sort deal if detention power would command the human student to take it's 'true form' when student has already true form 'on'. If student is told 'take your monstrous form' then detention power would give them a random monster's appearance for duration of the detention. This is what I tried get at :P. But humans are subjective to the power as everyone other student, just that they may not fare so well in some tasks (like speed write 30,000 sentences and assuming they have superspeed some kind).

I've seen Sky High and I can't help but think of the Detention Room from that movie, where all powers are nullified. In fact, the Detention Room might be it's own pocket dimension, just shared by the staff...

Sadly all Astaroth pics have horns :P. She's kind archtyphical succubus in that sense (some have wings, some have less clothing etc). Horns are not bad and can be counted as part of unique defect (horns have no practical use whatsoever besides being potentially handlebars in bedroom activity).

Here in below is my sheet and also codetag for the sheet format I used for those who prefer use it :).

Name: Sayama Saki
Gender: Male
Age: 20
Status (human, supernatural, student, teacher): Human Student
Background
Sayama Saki is from lower class family where they have always struggled with money. He has been determined to push his family from poverty to riches and thus he has dedicated himself entirely on his academic success and his career. He has strong personal aura which drew attention even in kindergarten where he often decided games which are played and he had always acted fairly in disputes and broke them up. It was natural he had spend most entire life in student councils in his schools and high school where he became so popular it started become problem for him (he is hot, charismatic and has natural leader type qualities). Bad news though as because his devotion to studies he never dated and thus never had girlfriend....which made interaction with opposite sex interesting as he was fascinated (dazzled) by pretty girls and women who asked him out.

He had countless dates and it resulted in fierce rivalry occurring background for his attention. But he never got into actual bedding business albeit there was few close calls, his parents had pressed on that he does not sleep with a girl unless he plans marry her (and this point pregnant girlfriend would send family further to financial ruin and may cut his job and advance opportunities). He studied business management and law and etiquette and social aspects in school and languages. However all academies he attempted get into were flooded full because his student council matters got him distracted (and the damn women!) so he send his applications quite late. So he was walking from graduation ceremony with heavy heart towards his apartment and no idea what he does for whole year before attempting re-enter the academies....then he found a discarded academy accept format in alley? It was to academy which he had never heard about but it mentioned 'top potentials to advance to work in high pay after graduation'. So he signed the paper immediately and filled it out and he send it, albeit he was bit confused when it one part asked 'species' he wrote 'human' on it. Assuming it was a trick question.

*whimpers*

*rubs fiercely on unknown power attribute*

Activate damn it! Activate!

*back to more serious talk*

Well, I am eager to see how things go between Saki and Faye :). Although I just mention to steelsmiter that even if Saki wrote himself his species to be human the folks who check all registered students backgrounds before they send a creepy buss driver pick them up and brought to school, they may have found supernatural ancestry in Saki and it now lays dormant (until as GM you decide when it starts manifest and what it is). 50pts gives lots of room to assign to more monstrous traits which are clearly superhuman.

But besides that Saki will be bishi student who has experience in being student council (not president but he could have skills for it as he has strong social skills and charisma for it). A overall gifted in various academic fields.

Sakurako is your typical shy introvert. She usually stays inside her apartment when possible, using most of her time reading novels and browsing the internet on her laptop (as well as cosplaying at the occasional anime convention). The meek girl focuses greatly on her job though, as the school library is a secondary haven to her. She's not a very strict staff member, but those who have treated her horribly always seem to be oddly humbled or quieter in the next week.

Hmmm, 79 or 80 with defect. There is section in BESM which details a guideline how determine defects for your spells and how they work. There is ritual, shamanism and wizardry styles listed there. Ritual asks several participants, shamanism asks lots of time prepare/mediate while wizardry is more immediate but it drains energy points.

Overall though spellcraft (offensive anyways) comes in with weapon attribute. You can have forcefields, conjured armor rating or elemental related telekinesis for other spells. Or summoning spells even.

Asuka Toyamato

She's not complete yet, but I imagine her as from a long line of sorcery practicioners.  Sort of a rich girl vibe, catching the eye of a number of boys but only really having any interest in other girls.  Likely she'll stick to 18+ girls, though.

I'll probably only give her Recurring Nightmares, so she doesn't sleep often (between magic and discipline) but every night she sleeps is a horrible nightmare so she tries to have someone who can be there for her.

Asuka Toyamato

The latest in a long line of sorceresses, Asuka sees life as something to enjoy, basking in the enjoyment of her abilities and always striving to get better in any way she can.  She is always seen with her Septacle Necklace, an item of great power which has been passed down throughout the generations as a parent grows beyond the need for its use.

She has only a platonic interest in boys but has been known to chase skirts with almost a predatory delight, and one of her talents has been to learn to temporarily become futanari in order to fully savor their delights. 

Although she can stay awake for several days thanks to magical spells and discipline (which lets her keep up with her studies while everyone else is asleep), she suffers from horrible nightmares every time she falls asleep.  Although she never remembers what they were upon awakening, it's been suggested that her mind is attempting to develop oracular talents.  If so, she's simply too stubborn to accept the nature of destiny being fixed and being warned about a problem.  She'd much rather just go out and solve it, no matter the cost.

Body 3 (5)         Mind 4 (6)         Soul 5 (7)

Alternate Identity
Asuka can transform herself into a futanari.  Doing so takes a bit of focus, though (Activation 1).

Combat Technique - Lightning Reflexes

Divine Relationship - L3
Asuka is just naturally lucky.

Extra Actions L1
Asuka can use her magic to slow down her perception of time, allowing her to move twice as quickly as usual.  Not only is it draining (5/round), but azure energy coalesces around her while she does it, trailing her movements.

Feature - Appearance 2

Flight L3
Asuka can fly at speeds of roughly 100kph, but doing so causes azure energy to trail behind her.

Force Field L7
Asuka can conjure up an azure force field to protect her from harm, with moderate drain (1/round).

Item of Power - Septacle Necklace
A treasured family heirloom, the septacle necklace always on her neck significantly enhances her capabilities.  (Enhanced Body, Mind and Soul, all at 2)  It enhances her mana spells (Massive Damage for Mana Spells at L5) and protects her mind and spirit from harm (Mind Shield and Resistance at L5).

Ranged Attack (Spells) L3

Regeneration L1
Asuka is capable of basic regeneration, albeit with exceptional drain (5/round) and with azure energy flowing into her wounds to fix up her body.

Shield L3
Asuka can conjure up an azure shield of force.  Protection 5, 1/round, and Detectable Visual.

Special Defense
Like everyone in her family, she stopped aging once she hit 18.  She only needs to sleep once or twice a week, which is fortunate because she hates to sleep thanks to her nightmares.

Telekinesis L2
Asuka's telekinesis can lift up to 10 kilograms, and has moderate drain.  (1/round)

Wealth 1 - $300,000

Weapon: Manadarts
Asuka conjures up thousands of tiny motes of azure energy, sending them suddenly flying towards her target in a flurry of jagged destruction.

Weapon 5, Range 100m, Accurate 3, Autofire

Secondary Weapon: Heart Kiss
Asuka blows a kiss at her target, making an image of her lips appear and shoot towards her target.  If it hits, it causes the target to have an orgasm unless resisted.  Range 10m, Incapacitating 2

I have the spreadsheet up at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1NsjcxCL7JEOs5Q5LmRyo4B7D92u09vUx0vZGZ8p7_vo/edit#gid=0 if you want to check the math.

I can add it as a Defect to the Succubus form, thus giving me 1 extra character point to use in said form...
First off, I didn't say you could, you just assumed you could. Secondly, Marked is a default of the succubus, and you should have PM'd me to ask rather than making an assumption.  I specifically approved a change to flight because it happens to fit our mutual understanding of Succubi. Not having a succubus that (in succubus form) is instantly recognizeable as that is kind of a deal breaker for me. And finally, I limited defects to -10 points. If you want more, you'll have to start at 299 or less, which I have no objection to.

Whoa, hey, no need to get that aggressive about it. The Marked does apply to her Succubus form, it's specifically under her Alternate Form: Succubus. Alternate Form does state I can take Defects to give the Alternate Form more points, but all I'm doing is swapping Shy for Marked in that form (I figured anymore would be min-maxing). I can drop the Soul Drain of her Demon Form Claws, or hell, I can drop Alternate Form altogether.

Steelsmiter can be quite touchy about some subjects and as when he is GM you do not go 'assume it's approved'. You can word things differently and say 'I placed Marked as one defects in succubus form to replace shy, are you okay with it?'.

With around +15 years experience with online gaming I have dealt with GM's who are touchy sort about players going and doing stuff on their own which GM does not approve :P. I myself I am quite lenient sort but not all GM's are like me so try get feel of the GM usually when join games.

Anyways Steelsmiter, about my char, your okay that you design and decide when and how unknown power (50pts invested on it) will manifest? It's kind supposed to be my char's secret supernatural heritage (as he did fill entry format and wrote human as species so no doubt staff in academy checked his background does he qualify or not and he did thanks this heritage).

That's acceptable, I just misunderstood that you were only applying shy to your non-demon forms and keeping Marked for your demon form. Sorry for the Mind Roll Failure on my end. Also I've been running a FTF game so sorry for the delay in response. Also, I wasn't aware I was being agressive, but I understand sometimes my words don't match the intensity of my thoughts.

I can repost the link to my sheet here so you don't have to go hunting for it. It's Google Docs so any changes are updated real time, and the only change was Faye's Alt Form has Penetrating 1 for her claws now as well as being Marked.

Yeah, although as a teacher, it should stand to reason that you pretty much have either Detention, Academic Honesty, or both, it's up to you whether you want to tweak your UP points to reflect that.

Marked is only when she engages her Demon Form. Which is why it's only a one point Defect, because it comes equipped with an off switch-even though her entire body turns blue and she grows a freaking tail, she can just as easily turn it off again.

Teacher? Umh, my char is actually sign up as a student to the academy :P. He basically has no idea he is rolling in to monster academy filled with supernatural entities (kind of like MC in Rosario+Vampire anime). Idea is though that staff checked his background and found traces of supernatural heritage so he qualifies (even if my char has no idea of his heritage at all). So I left it to you decide IC what his heritage is. He may be great-great-grandson of sorcerer, demon, werewolf, half-vampire, kitsune etc.

Still space open?  I have a fair amount of BESM 3 experience.  A couple of questions...

Is the school all "weird" people... a private school to keep the general public unaware of all sorts of oddness while providing a quality education, or both weird and normal together, with the magic/etc people having to learn to blend in?

Something that came to mind was "Negima without Negi."  The one class has two half-demons, a ninja, an android, her mad scientist inventor, a girl from the future, a ghost and a vampire among the "normal" students (who can also be pretty eccentric and highly skilled in their interests, from athletics to library science to cooking).

I have a couple of concepts and wanted to see if a big element of them worked out in the context of the school.

One is a werewolf or were-cat who is in the anthro-hybrid form all the time.  The curse works differently than the movies say and she can only turn human on the full moon, or just has such a strong natural affinity with the bestial form that she doesn't or can't change back, and is OK with that fact.

The other is a normal teenage girl who learned her real father was a demon... she learns this when she starts growing demonic features herself on a birthday, extra arms, huge batwings, a reptilian tale and more.

So, since they don't look human, they no longer dress human... or dress at all.  Does casual public nudity fit in at the school?

I think so, as academy is suited for supernaturals so a 'dragon' appearing without clothes on would be natural. Not to mention succubi and other entities which feel comfortable nude than clothes on. But if becomes too distracting they could conjure illusions to cover up.

Also perhaps academy can teach how to blend in with humans (as supernaturals are minority after all and they need money as anyone else to live by). So case of monstrous appearance need either items, powers or learn control their appearance if it's possible.

Teacher? Umh, my char is actually sign up as a student to the academy :P.
Then he probably needs a lower mind to have been held back however many years his grade would indicate.

Anyways as question is there potential gain XP (basically more bonus points to spend) in far future of the game so chars progresses through over the years?
If by that, you mean "are characters static" they aren't. They... change.

We may be missing a minor detail-what's the name of the school?
I hadn't decided whether this one was also going to take place at Hentai High or not. Since I've come down with an illness which I'd at this point call "Moderate" I unfortunately have further delays.

Yeah, all supernaturals academy. My char is 'human' but has hidden supernatural heritage which takes form of the unknown power attribute. So he too is supernatural but he just does not know it.
This is the right answer, and also the right approach to character creation of "normal humans"

Does casual public nudity fit in at the school?
Yes.

So again, sorry for the delays, but I have no one to bring me noodles.

Lower mind? Is this about him being 20 and being fresh high school graduate? I can make him younger so it fits better (was not sure when japanese folk graduate from high school). Overall he is meant to be very smart student (and hard working too).

That's something I've been wondering.  Given the 18 year cutoff, maybe this should be a university and not a high school?

Well, it's meant to be academy so it's university by default. I listed my char as 20 years old as I was not sure how long japanese take to graduate (in Finland it takes to 17-18 to graduate and most go to senior secondary school study 2-3 years).

Another idea... a former magical girl heroine who is no longer entirely human.  Fallout from a final battle, some feedback from purifying all those monsters, more adult desires warping a power based on innocence and purity, changed by the power of the final boss... regardless, she's not able to attend a normal school now.  And doesn't mind.  After years of having a secret identity, not able to tell normal human friends about what she's doing... things having naked transformations out in public, watching monsters molest girls to steal their energy before jumping in and wrestling with them and so on, she feels more like a part of the supernatural world than the human one.

Might even look something like one of!

I'm not sure what about the thread title gives you that idea, but it's irrelevant. I'm unfortunately too sick to follow through. If someone wants to pick it up, and test out the Popularity rules, they have my blessing. I may or may not be able to respond via PM to any inquiries. Sorry about this.

I was considering doing something else in BESM, a Kingdom Hearts game. That'll probably be a ways out, though.

Whoever fathered Dawn/Faye isn't even around. The Principal is basically an incredible badass, and there are some faculty members who are bigger combat powerhouses then him (cause he had to spend his points on Administration and stuff)

A university somewhere remote or isolated, so the characters remain in fairly close contact?
