BESM / BDSM High School game
« on: April 25, 2008, 04:26:41 PM »
Have any of you guys seen Revolutionary Girl Utena?  After I took a look at it recently, I thought "... I want to be in a game like it, but with the D/s undertones turned up to 11."

The main idea I had was there is a prestigious boarding school, or perhaps a private college, with a highly ritualized society that uses submissives as weapons in a dream-world/setting.  Granted, I'd say this sort of story would also involve noncon, since... well, who says the submissives would have a choice in their partner?  ;)

Anyone willing to run this in BESM 3rd edition?

I'd very much love to play in this.

I have enough submissive for two.  ;)

Hmm, from the Wikipedia, that seems like something enjoyable to watch :)

Don't know BESM, but it's based of d20, right?

There's a d20 variant of it.

It could be worse.  Someone could have suggested Love Hina.....

No, BESM 3rd edition is not based on d20.  For one thing, it's much, much more liquid.  I can connect people if they want more information about the book, just PM or IM me. 

Love Hina isn't good fodder for this place.  ;)  I'd rather have the messed up elements of having dominant duelists using submissives as weapons and the interactions beyond the battlefield...  And the mystery of 'why.'

Ooh, this does look like a wonderful idea. I don't think I'd be able to run such a thing, due to GMing taking much more time, planning and effort than playing, and I already have a bad habit of neglecting my DM duties. But if it goes ahead, I'd be interested in playing.

I'm not sure how one would play in the Utena universe.  They entire thing is a metaphor and simile of a the real world.  Nothing in it actually 'happens', but seems to.

It's very confusing.

But I want Akio's car.

And if you want a REAL mind fuck, go watch the movie!

I haven't seen the series.  I just read the Wikipedia article, though, and I'm actually more confused than ever.

The general concept sounds interesting, though...

"The tall male sits in an ornate jewel encrusted wood throne, watching the scene from below.  Quietly, the sword with it's point into the floor, spins idly around the finger pressed into the pommel as he sees the students paired up into the selected dorms.

'And so it begins anew,' He muses, what seems to be to himself.  The glass on the floor looks shifts as he focuses on the new students arriving to the campus, 'I wonder if I'll be dethroned, or if I'll stay here for another generation.'

Something shifts in the shadows behind him, but nothing is heard from the barely distinguishable figure.  He looks up at the giant flower hilted blade that his 'symbol of office', the Heart of the World.  His gloved fingers reach for it and it flashes into another two handed brand that appears in his grasp.  Letting the other weapon drop with a clatter, a female squeak of pain is heard from the curtains.  He smiles bitterly, but the soft, pale blond girl in the white dress, her ears adorned with Celtic cross earrings and with pain in her eyes comes out from her hiding place.

A table appears and she lays out several cards from the deck in her hand.  She recites what she sees in each,
'The Page of Cups.  The Knight of Staves.  The King of Swords.  Queen of Coins.  The Hermit.  The Tower.  The Sun...'

'Enough,' The dark haired young man stands from his seat, picking up the white metal sword he let fall, while the girl obeys and watches him.  Her soft blue gaze track him as he approaches, his shoes rapping on the clear floor.  Thrusting out the weapon in reverse form, the braided blond closes her eyes and kneels before him as her pale lips kisses the rounded metal end in an almost sensual manner.  Rising to her own feet, the short skirt of her black and white uniform flutters around her thighs, the high cut material ending just above the striped stockings.

The slender fingers undoes her top, while her master flips the brand back to the right position.  Once done, the female opens her blouse exposing the flesh between her perky, yet average chest for him.  A thrust and the blade disappears into her heart, as her mouth opens and releases pleasured sound.

Walking back with only one weapon now, he stares back into the viewing portal, 'So what do you think?'

The short girl follows his voice again, but doesn't reply as yet a second, older looking raven haired beauty clings to his back.  With a dark and sharp laugh, she answers, 'Let the games...  Begin.'

Her laughter peels through the high vaulted cathedral at the top of the old school..."

Oh no, Chris.   D<  You have enough on your hands with GMing Black Tokyo.  It would be cruel to drown you in another.  Or are you that crazy?  :P

That just hit me as I was reading this thread.

And yes, I am crazy.  I keep getting ideas for games whenever I come to this subforum.

*Sigh*

What DO people think of that intro, anyway?

God help us, this should be fun.  XD

My concept is a girl named Rose _____, whose family has been attending the school for generations.  In fact, they tend to compete in these... 'games.'  It's just, if we can play the submissive ones, Rose is stuck as someone carrying the sword, not the wielder.  Sucks, huh?  :P

Well, few things needed to figure out.

How to do the blade with a the Subs powering them.

Who teams up with who, or if it's all NPC's...

That sort of stuff.

Are you seeking players for this?

Personally, I'd like to play something like a new student discovering upon his arrival that he carries one of those swords insides him, and trying to deal with the consequences, namely being considered like the servant of one of the duelist against his will.

That's pretty much my idea as well, though with my girl, she'd also be having issues with the fact that by having one of the swords (and not being the wielder), she has embarrassed her family.  They raised her to be stubborn and willful (granted, she had done it half-heartedly for a while, but she has gotten used to it) but now she has to submit?  It's her nightmare and dream at the same time!

For how to handle it, I don't know; I have a hard time with BESM at times.  I'd think that it would involve the duelists having a ring that is an Item that can remove the swords, while the swordbearers probably design the swords?

Here's the thing, for the most parts the weapons are going to be very low in damage if at all.  After all, if we're going to model this vaguely off Utena, the students will not be killing each other, but their dreams and hopes.  If that.

So mostly drains to Soul or the like.

As the Sheaths, well, there's no real special deals here.  Just make students as you normally would.

The Duelists will make the swords.
