Do it like the Drow! (Needing some switch female personas)
« on: September 03, 2011, 03:53:23 PM »
Okay, so I have this certain craving, and it would require a few female characters opposite of my male, and possibly another male as well.  I also have this idea listed in my primary request thread, as it can be played as a one on one with us taking multiple roles, but seem hardly fair to my partner as she would be playing up to four characters to my one or two, so I thought I'd drop it here as well and see what sort of reception it gets.

I'll just paste what I wrote in my original request thread below, then add some notes.

Quote from: 'Scotty Rage'
Taming The Spider Queen
This scenario actually takes a few of the pairings above and combines them, most notably the Drow Warrior/Drow Priestess and the Brother/Sister pairings.  It also expands them a bit, and I am even going to throw out my no parent/offspring rule for this one story, because it involves Drow (brownie points and special consideration to those who know of Drow and their society), who tend to see the world from a very different point of view than humans.  This would probably work best as a small group game of no more than five players (the male, up to three sisters, and the Matron Mother), but it can be a one on one if I find a partner who is skilled enough to play the four female roles adeptly, and will involve light BDSM, such as being bound and rough sex, a bit of blade play, and obviously some non-con.  The plot will be set in the Forgotten Realms world (extra points again for those familiar with it), and will center around the eldest son of a Drow house, the most feared warrior in the underground city, and the house weapons master.  However, he has grown tired of being seen as 'inferior' due to his gender in a female dominated society, so has decided to strike back, starting with his 'beloved' family.  Long has he endured the torments of his sisters, all priestesses of Lolth, The Spider Queen and goddess of the Drow, as well as his opinions never carrying any weight or being given consideration by his Matron Mother and ruler of the house.  Now he has decided to show them who should really be in charge, starting with his dear sisters.  Setting a plan into motion, he begins to systematically separate and dominate them one at a time.  Knowing he can't simply attack them openly, he instead uses subtle tactics, blackmail, and coercion to dominate them sexually, turning them into his servants rather then being theirs any longer.  After the many years of them using their 'assets' to tease him simply for their amusement, and then denying him and punishing him for his desires, he will make them realize just what they've been missing because of their little games.  As he continues to conquer his sisters until they become his willing sex slaves, he sets his sights on the ultimate conquest, the busty, voluptuous, and stunningly beautiful Matron Mother.  In the end, he will be the one truly running the house, and the rest of the city will be none the wiser...

So, as you may have guessed, this would work best with people who have some knowledge of Dungeons & Dragons style dark elves, or Drow, as they call themselves.  I would prefer the Forgotten Realms setting, but that is really hardly relevant since it's an underground city and has little to do with the surface world, so it could honestly be an original game world.  Despite the fact that this will be based on a tabletop game system, the role-play itself will be free form and will not involve stats or dice.  I am simply borrowing from the lore of the game, not looking to get into mechanics.

Knowledge of Drow and their culture would be a huge, HUGE plus, though, and will obviously gain consideration for candidates ahead of all others.  I could probably explain it, or link someone to an article if they don't know much about it but manage to catch my interest.

Anyway, the roles that need to be filled are as follows.

One Matron Mother
Up to three sisters/priestesses.
Possibly a secondboy/youngest son/house wizard (male, I can also play this role if needed)
I will be the eldest son, the house Weapons Master.

So, if you find the story interesting and would like to participate, just post your interest here and we'll start negotiations.  I don't exactly expect a lot of people to jump at this story, but perhaps I'll be pleasantly surprised.

Looking forward to hearing from some of you at least.

I'd be tempted, but I have to ask about the no "Bromance" part in your preferences. Does that apply to only in an RP or does it mean you don't RP opposite males, even if a male player was RPing a female character?

If you are fine with a male player, then I could still be tempted to RP all of the females. I'm a self-proclaimed Drow nut. My favorite race period. I know just about everything there is to know of them (there are exceptions, especially if its AD&D material). I do have some questions and concerns (nothing bad), that I would like to discuss as well.

I encourage you to look at my posts and O/O's. We differ in our sexual likes a bit, but we have enough in common that if we compromise, we could RP together. If you don't feel this is so, then no harm done.

Count me in as a Drow Sister! I love playing switch characters. She could be a strong one, a fighter who can give you some trouble if confronted directly, but she is sure of herself and can be manipulated.

Same here. Hmmm, my concept would had been that second eldest son is practicing wizardry but the eldest who is doing his plans realizes he cannot do them without aid from someone who knows magic. So eldest brother tempts the younger brother join in plot give his aid and perhaps get piece of action with the elder sisters maybe ;). But then if we got 3 males we definitely need more women on top. Like 5 + matron?

XD that would work too. As long as there aren't 3 boys born to the matron it'll work. But that consort wold have to be all kinds of badass to get that position and keep it. It's easily the most transient in a Drow House.

Well, there's always the Matron Mother's current consort.  It could very well include other males besides those initially listed, after all, and have them brought in on the conspiracy led by the Alpha male, so to speak, which would be the Elderboy/Weapons master.

And Xanatos, since Foxy has expressed a desire to play a daughter, as well as Elf, would you be okay with limiting yourself to one role to make room for others who might like to play the other females?  If so then you're more than welcome.  My bias is strictly limited to that sort of character interaction, and has absolutely nothing to do with who plays the character.  It's a RP, after all, and as long as the character is female then I'm not particularly mindful of who plays her, as long as the player can do so convincingly.  Also, I don't limit others to playing their characters by my preferences.  My characters will only ever be sexual with females, or at least with females as part of the equation.  However, if others enjoy male on male interaction, I encourage that as much as I do female on female.  ^_^  Of course, I'd prefer all the other potential players be comfortable with that as well, so in the end it's more of a vote in or out I suppose.

And...sorry I haven't replied to this in a few days all.  Been a bit busy.  I'm liking the ideas, though, and would love to hear more, and possibly lure in someone to play the other female nobles of the house.  We still need one more role filled, though it can honestly work with two sisters.  The Matron Mother is a must, though, so someone needs to be willing to take that.  Ideally the Matron and three priestesses would work best, though if others show interest there can always be a bit of expansion for the daughters.  I'd go up to five, but no more than that.  As for the males, three nobles is about the limit if you include the Matron's consort, and most houses are being generous to allow that.

Ok, how sounds my char is consort and he is wizard (so he is powerful). In age wise he is equal age if not bit older than the elder boy but truth said he is interested on elder boy's idea if he presents it and gives him aid to see how far he succeeds go. Also of course get chance with all gorgeous drow women in house.

He might not as well, Drow society is hugely matriarchal and someone could just have him offed just to damage their rival. Keep that in mind too. It's up to the matron who the consort is really and it can change from day to day like I said. but most kind of overlook it to a degree.

The reality of it is, often, the Matron's consort is a plaything and nothing more.  To call him a 'noble' is an honorary title at best, and he has no real authority.  Unless she happens to take one of the established males, such as the Weapons Master or the Master Wizard, then he has no rank over her sons and they would likely look down on him, and since we're kind of establishing the Secondboy as the Wizard and the Elderboy as the Weapons Master, then those roles will be forfeit.  He may be a strong wizard, or a decent fighter, but to them he's nothing more than their mother's new toy, and if anything a pawn to be used in their little game.

Now if you want to play that sort of role, I'm good with it.  I'm just warning you, it won't be a glorious role and will often times be somewhat demeaning, which is why I initially didn't include it in the listing of house males.

Put me in as tentatively interested, preferably as the Matron Mother.  Or if someone else wants that role, then I could easily pull off a scheming second daughter, envious of the first daughter's status or a spoiled third daughter, petty and shallow.

A few questions though for those who are interested, what exactly are we looking for in terms of posting rates?  And how much build-up will be involved?  I tend to post around once every 2-3 days and i am hoping for a somewhat involved game which doesn't immediately jump into the conquering of the house.  That way the comeuppance is more satisfying.

That and I am personally hoping for lurid descriptions with a heavy emphasis on BDSM and humiliation when the action does start.

I think I'd rather have profiles and do a bit of picking and choosing honestly.  Not to sound like a snob, but first come first serve often ends up giving you a group of mediocre writers, or just plain bad writers.  I'd like to see some character ideas.  You can post them here, using he following template.

Name: (Obvious)
Player: (Your username here)
Sex: (Male or Female.  No futas, herms, etc. please)
Position: (The position you are applying for)
Description: (Post a brief description, or substitute a picture if you like)
Personality: (Some personality traits that define your character)
Bio: (A brief bio describing your character, though you can leave this blank until I finish with some logistics, such as the House name, the name of the City, and a bit of background info for everyone)

Also, if you would, maybe link me to some examples of your writing, as getting to see you in action would greatly assist in the decision making process.  Of course, anyone who wants to see mine can find links in my signature.  At the bottom of my primary request thread if you go to it you'll fine a list of my past and present stories so you can see my writing style.  I figure if I request as much, it's only fair that people are able to judge me and decide if they can write with me or not.

As for the Matron, esclavage, she hasn't been claimed yet, so if you want to post a profile for her, you're more than welcome and will be given first consideration.

Hmm, I would like to play the Matron Mother, but two already have mentioned interest. I can play a Priestess, but for now I'll cast my lot for Matron (though I'm not going to throw a fit if I don't get it, no worries at all). If I don't get matron, I'll go for High Priestess. Perhaps a Priestess who trains other clerics, so she had authority and power.

Before I say more, though, I have to ask you Scotty how you actually plan on doing this. I know the Drow very very well and not even Gromph Baenre, the most powerful male in Menzoberranzan (possibly most powerful Male Drow period) dares mess with the heiarchy (as much as he would like too anyways). The only male who had ever ruled over a house, though in secret, because of the SERIOUS backlash if it were in public, was a male Lich whom ended up being revealed and defeated by Gromph, himself, in the War of the Spider Queen series.

For your male to achieve this would require one hell of a conspiracy and A LOT of magical aid. Priestesses of Lolth are insanely dangerous, magically and physically speaking, being bigger, stronger, and smarter than most males. Lolth also likes to intercede from time to time, to make sure males stay in their place. Goddess aside, many priestesses have snake headed whips which are highly suspicious of anyone, even the priestess (due to Lolths command). Does the matron or any of the Priestesses have a Draegloth? The Draegloth alone would put one hell of a crimp in the plans.

How do you plan to get past the idea that sex is for pleasure only; its not this mind altering thing like it can be for a Human? Males are to be used for fun or to breed, not much else, but to fight and die. Females dominate exclusively and for your guy to dominate them, even slyly, is slim. Drow innately distrust one another, to an extreme. They would sooner trust an Ilithid than one of their own.

I don't mean to sound like a downer on the idea, but having a clearer picture of how this will proceed would be very nice. I don't mind the idea of a female being dominated by a male, but your character is taking up a task so monumental, its considered nearly impossible by Drow standards.

Please consider me not up for the Matron Position. As much as I would enjoy a Drow game, and a position as a Matron Mother. I don't think I see myself working too well in the game that is being set forth already. I got halfway done typing my initial interest in the Matron Mother position when I saw another had put forth their interest, so quickly retyped my reply as a 'good luck to you!' reply

If another Drow-based group game comes along, I might consider trying out for the part again, but in this instance, I do not believe I would be a good choice for the role. Seeing as a Matron Mother I would want to play would never willingly submit to a male, and would rather -die-.

Again, I wish you all have a -lot- of fun!

Just to reiterate, I was simply putting forth a tenuous interest and wanted to see how things developed from there.  I initially had chosen the Matron Mother because I thought no one else would want the role.  Though in retrospect, that was a bit naive.   :P  I mean, who technically wouldn't want to be the focal of the story on the female side and probably the biggest mover and shaker in the story?

So like I mentioned I would be more than happy playing the role of a second daughter in lieu of the Matron Mother.  Someone envious because they weren't born first, a schemer and supplanter.  Therefore, if either Xanatos or EbonyQueen were interested or had definite feeling, I'd be more than happy to let them have the spot.

Though to respond to your thought, Xanatos, though I am not Scotty, I would think the easiest way to execute such a story would have the backdrop take place in troubled times.  Such as the time of the Upheaval when Lloth's magic no longer worked and the House Baenre became vulnerable to the predatory third house, which had psionics which were still working.  Essentially, there would need a needed story element introduced at an appropriate time to shake up status quo and allow the males some breathing room and execute their plan.  Otherwise, I do agree that messing with an established hierarchical structure would be undoubtedly firmly quashed by Lloth and her active interference and from her handmaidens, the Yochlol.

From there, the problem of gaining their submission still remains.  Which is why I was more of an advocate of heavier BDSM themes since there will need to be some inventive torments to cause the daughters and Matron Mothers to change their way of thinking.   O:)

A good point esclavage. Without magic, the female's can't use divine magic to squash the males. Makes them much more vulnerable. I also agree on BDSM elements. It will not be safe, with or without magic, to conduct seduction when they are free to move and beat, slash, stab, etc. The male(s) will need to get physical and take control. Even then, I think a cunning plan will be needed or just luck. Still, good point, good point.


I don't mean to imply I'm trying to be center of attention by wanting the matron role. Its more of the fact because I've never played the role of Matron before. I've always been a Priestess. I think the Matron role would be fun, and I can do it justice (not that anyone else can't). So I don't see me as selling anyone short if I get the role.

I am fine with the fact that as consort my male wizard has no rank over the sons nor daughter's (nor any influence control in the house at all). Also the fact that he may suffer some fem dom acts from matron mother. But he is a archmage so it means he has heck lot of influence outside the house and he is man not messed with nor thinked as easy pawn to play in the house politics.

However I could lead the consort similar thinking situation as the male archmage from Baenre; he desires the change in social structure but he dares not to make moves. But during time of tumult when clerics magics are limited (note; during spider queen they had spells but they could not refresh their spells so saving memorized spells came name of the game). In this case as consort he had placed many wards and protection spells during the time of tumult which would hinder the goals of elder and second elder boy (if one of them is wizard but lesser in skill than consort).

I thinked my consort would get you caught during when you were showing dominance one to the sisters, doing something which was blasphemous and something what gets them killed. However they may have trouble to break in the female drow they had chosen to break in so he lends them aid with magic. As like them he desired power but he never had done the first move. So he becomes cooperator in their plans by giving indirectly aid in their endeavors and also take some enjoyment from their harvest in return. He has no interest take over the house itself but he takes delight in carnal act in itself and see can female drows be broken by magic and sexual torment to accept submissive role in their lives....waiting can matron mother, strongest female in house, turned or not. In case if will is too strong she could be killed and replaced by one brainwashed daughter's then.

First, everyone seems to think Menzoberranzan is the only Drow city in existence, and that was what I wanted to choose for my backdrop.  It's not, and I actually wanted to create a city for it rather than intrude on already established material.  Second, Lolth is a chaotic being, and often revels in pure anarchy.  There are times she will abandon the priestesses of a given city for no other reason than to watch them squirm, because she's a fickle bitch like that.  The War of the Spider Queen and several other books and series often make a very strong point on that.

The idea behind my story was to have a city that had actually lost favor, for whatever reason, which would give the males the courage to even consider messing with the hierarchy to begin with.  And yes, seduction wasn't to be the only method of 'convincing' the women, and it would indeed include some heavy BDSM elements, particularly the bondage element as well as physical AND sexual torture.  These women would be bound and used as playthings until they knew nothing else and loved it.  It would be a total brainwashing process, a complete mind fuck, if you will.  Actually, that kind of makes me want to include a mind flayer or something to make it a literal mind fuck.  >.>

The idea is to torture and rape the women until they're nearly mindless, drooling invalids, and then build them back up and mold them into the servants for the men.  Of course, my vision was also supposed to borrow from the lore, not follow it to the letter.  Logistics and bickering over rules is one of the quickest ways to kill a group game, honestly, so I try not to use established rules and settings too much.  It's supposed to be fun for people, not arguing that "This is how it is and we can't deviate from that".

So, if you guys are still with me, then here's what I'm thinking.  Ebony, since the Matron is pretty much solely what you had your eye on, and since Xanatos and esclavage stated they would be willing to play daughters, I would give you first crack at Matron, Xanatos the first daughter, and esclavge the scheming second daughter.  Foxy expressed interest in a daughter as well, so she could perhaps be the brash third daughter given how she described the character she'd like to play.

So let me know what you all think.  Honestly all the logistical arguments are starting to turn what was originally imagined as a fun romp loosely based on a genre I enjoy into a chore for me, and I'm starting to lose interest in my own idea because of it.  If we can squash the rule-nazi DM in ourselves for a bit and just come up with something that would be enjoyable for all, then I'm happy to continue.  Otherwise, I'm happy to back out and let folks take this over and turn it into another hack and slash dice game.

Thank you for that, but after some thinking I am going to withdraw my interest. For me I enjoy more 'open ended' group games. You seem to have a -very- good- idea of where you want this game to go, pretty much 'on rails'. The men -will- take over, and the women will be dominated, for example it's already set what is going to happen.

Upon reflection as I said, I prefer something that is more fluid that can change and have different outcomes and endings. So again thank you very much for the offer of the Matron's position but I am going to relinquish that to Xanatos or esclavage as I don't think I'll have much fun with such a tightly directed group game.

Have fun everyone, even if it's not my cup of tea seeing a Drow-based group game is great.

Well as I posted earlier I'm interested in a more melee oriented sister, one who could actually fight back with her fists until she is restrained by the males. Let me know what you think:

Name: Shariia

Player: elfguy

Sex: F

Position: Sister

Description:


Personality: She is playful, loves to intimidate others, play with their emotions, and betray them.

Bio: Shariia is one of the sisters of the House. Unlike the others however, she is the one with the least amount of sorcery abilities. Instead, she trained to be a warrior, gaining a fit physique and becoming skilled at combat. Sitting in a room doing priestess duties bore her, she prefers action, and often goes out to lead groups of male Drow into combat against other races, commanding them as a ruthless leader and forcing them to bring as many slaves as they can.

Because of this, she is less aware of what goes on politically in the House, and is less likely than her sisters to become Matron one day. But that's of little concerns to her. What she enjoys is going in the slave pens, taking on a dozen slaves at once, then killing them all with her bare hands, proving her superiority through brutal combat. That turns her on, and that's how she became feared by both male Drows and slaves alike. She views both groups as inferior, not necessarily in disdain, but more like pets that must be led with a firm hand, because they can't do anything right by themselves.

I have a character that's got that in mind Scotty.

Name: Jaylnfein Rilyn'tar (can change the surname to fit)
Player: Snake
Sex: Male
Position: Secondboy
Description: Half-deep-dragon. AS the pic but he has deep maroon colored hair, reddish-purple eyes with slitted pupils.



Personality: Jalynfein has a standard male drow mentality, except he's quite a bit more aggressive and scheming.  He knows he has power that stands apart from the others and has no qualms whatsoever about utilizing any of it to prove the point. He knows loyalty to nobody but has a lot of skill as giving the impression he's subservient to the females around him. But he's still more like his draconic father and wants what they have: authority and control over others as well as access to immense wealth.
Bio: Half-deep-dragons are actually highly valuable to drow families and the matrons and priestesses actually do protect them from other houses because of their extreme destructive capability. But He still had to deal with being wean-mothered by one of his older sisters and the period of indoctrination that was included int hat, but he actually only pays lip-service to Lolth herself and worships a draconic deity that the others aren't aware of because the practices required for it are much more subtle. He was pressured into attempting to develop his innate magical power and has quite a talent for it as well but prefers more martial methods due to his physical ability.

(I can include more once more info comeso ut, but how's this. The other char I have is a sorcerer type that actively wants to overturn the matriarchy.)

Both characters look good, though, Elf...Drow have white hair, but other than that, looks good.  :P  And Snake, I'd prefer something not overpowering like a half-dragon if you don't mind.  I just want straight Drow, honestly, or at least that's what I had envisioned.  A half-dragon is just a bit unbalancing to the story.  The males are supposed to be generally 'weaker' than the females, which is why they have to work together and attack one at a time rather than all at once.

Thank you for that, but after some thinking I am going to withdraw my interest. For me I enjoy more 'open ended' group games. You seem to have a -very- good- idea of where you want this game to go, pretty much 'on rails'.

On the contrary, Ebony, I simply stated what the goal of the males is, but in all honesty I'd prefer a much more fluid story where the tables can be turned by either side at any given moment.  That's the beauty of it all, is the chaos.  The males might think they've won only to find out they didn't have as much control as they thought.  I would never want a story set on a static path, since there's no room for it to grow from there.  Perhaps through all of this the priestesses even find Lolth's favor again and completely turn the best laid plans of the males against them.  Perhaps in the end a compromise can even be reached, or perhaps they all destroy each other in the end.  Nothing is set in stone, and nothing is on a linear path.  I prefer dynamic stories with twists throughout, so if you'd be interested, love to have you.  If not, no worries and I totally understand.

White hair is fine.

And I personally would rather the males win, although it could also be a compromise. What if one of the sisters ally themselves with the males, seeing that they will likely be victorious, and helps them take over, in the hope that they treat her as an equal? After all, Shariia has no illusion to ever be a Matron so she doesn't have that much to lose.

no problem. I was just goign with that because that way he has some kind of value to the females and they won't expect when he turns it on them. half dragon types are viewed almost teh same as Draegolths and have value that approaches that but I'll use Aricass instead :3

 so disregard the first profile please.

and: actually drow have silver hair, white hair, even pale golden blonde hair. But white is just the dominant color. Unless they have something else like uh dyes.

-----------------------------------
Name: Aricass Illistyn (again, can change surname)
Player: Snake
Sex: Male
Position: Secondboy
Description:
Personality: Quiet, Ambitious and ultimately self-serving. Aricass distinctly hates the matriarchy he feels he's forced to slave under for what? Nothing? He fully grasps that males don't amount to a hill of beans while all the women are in charge. So he keeps it to himself that he's quietly planning to overturn them all and enslave them (by use of magic. He uses a ring to constantly have a "mind blank" spell in place on himself so they can't read his thoughts or tell what he's thinking.)
Bio: will fill out later. But he's a sorcerer, born with arcane power and has tempered it through the years and drawn out his own powers and abilities. He hates wizards with a flaming passion; he believe they "crib their skills from "magic for dummies" and Aricass knows he was born with so that makes him more powerful, better than the rest.
