It is the twenty fourth century. Humanity has reached the stars and colonised several other worlds. In the process, we have encountered a variety of other space faring races. Some have proved allies, others enemies and others simply want nothing to do with us. Of course we have fought a few wars, won most of them but lost others.
One of the wars we lost was fought against the reptiloids and their allies the insectoids. This resulted in a large volume of Human colonised space being ceded to the aliens. Most of the colonists were evacuated, but a few worlds were either overlooked, or were too deep in the surrendered territory to reach in time.
These lost colonies are officially under the protection of the Reptiloid and insectoid governments.
However, there is a race far worse than either of these two. A race that is actually in the category (so far) of "wants nothing to do with us". This race tend to keep very much to themselves and occupy a few planets off to one side of where the insectoids are. They are terrifying but thankfully not very abundant.
Now, the insectoids are the most terrified of this other race and will do anything to keep them at bay, including sacrificing slaves to them. The reptiloids are less concerned, being further away, but they do like to have some slaves of their own to abuse and make do all the dirty work.
And so, obviously, there are slave raiders who periodically attack the "lost mammalian colonies", taking the strong, young and attractive.
A slave ship crewed by a mix of lizards and bugs has recently raided one of the lost worlds and is transporting a cargo of slaves back to market to be sold.
The worst fate a slave can have is to not be bought at market, because those that are not are usually given to the bugs to be sent as sacrifices to the Arachnoids...
You do NOT want to end up like this:
Well, I dunno, I suppose, if that's your thing, you might, but it's a pretty nasty way to die, being eaten alive from the inside by a swarm of newly hatched arachnoid young!
So, the object of the exercise, for the slaves, is to make sure they get bought by someone, or better yet, kept on board the ship by one of the crew.... (unless you want to be impregnated by giant spiders of course...)
On board the Reptilian pirate/slave ship.The races:
Sample images to give you the idea of what I'm after here. Obviously feel free to find an image that best suits your character.
By the way, if any of them don't show up for you, please let me know.Warm Blooded:
Cephalopoid (Tentacle monster - octopus)
Note: No Futa or hermaphrodites please.
Also, I'd rather not have "Nekos" - basically humans with animal ears and tails for those who don't know. The reason being that this implies cross-breeding between humans and aliens, which I already said won't happen.
Player characters can be any of the above races, however I would suggest limiting to one of each "blood". Note that the warm blooded creatures are all slaves and the cold blooded are all crew. I would also recommend NOT being a spider as the mere presence of one on board will drive the insects mad with fear! A Ceph could be present as one would be useful as a ships engineer
Mating between the various species IS allowed, but will not result in pregnancy. However, the laying of eggs by a cold blooded character inside the womb of a warm blooded character for purposes of incubating them is allowed. Note that only a Ceph can do this without mating with it's own species first!
To clarify this slightly:
A cold blooded creature that lays eggs - an insect, arachnid, squid or reptile, may lay those eggs in any desired orifice of a warm blood. But for the eggs to hatch they must first have been firtilised by a male of the cold blood's own species.
NOTE: this does not have to be a player character, it can be a NPC or could have happened weeks ago (in the case of the insects and spiders). The Cephalopods are sex-less and capable of fertilizing their own eggs.
Okay, so, the ship itself is a Reptilian light cruiser, left over from the war, with a lot (but not all) it's weapons removed. The crew needed to fly it is actually a lot less that a regular navy compliment and so all the crews quarters have been converted into slave pens, with the crew occupying the officers' quarters.
I might post a deck plan of the ship, but I might not. If I do, it means people have to conform to that plan. If I don't, it means there may be inconsistency in the story. Both options have merits and disadvantages. I'm open to suggestions.
Crew are allowed to take as many slaves as they want and do whatever they want to them.IMPORTANT NOTENon-consent applies to the character not the player. If your character objects to something being done to her, that's tough! If YOU object, then tell the other player or tell me, or both. Character sheets will have "Player sexual preference" and "Character sexual preference". If the player says they only want male characters, then no female characters may touch them. If the player says they only want female players then no male players may touch them. I know this seems limiting, but believe me it's for the best, and saves arguments.
Character sexual preference can be completely independent of player preference.
Sexual encounters between slaves are permitted, but are subject to interruption by the crew. Sexual encounters between crew members are also permitted, but with all those slaves to abuse, why would you want to - except to fertilise some eggs...
If we need any more I will add them, unless players who want to be crew can think of them. If you want to be the captain you had better give me a really good reason! I will be the cargo officer, purely because it's my show and I can! (Evil cackle).
Players are allowed TWO characters at most - this is not mandatory. You are welcome to have only one. If you have two, I would prefer it if you had one of each.Character Sheet:

The age ranges are the "attractive" age or "breeding" age for each species. This varies partly due to the longevity of the species concerned but also due to the length of the year of each species home planet.
