I'll try to check sheets and update the map within a day or two; got caught up in RL yesterday and didn't get to.

I'll read the thread and make updates as appropriate in a day or two, with rooms given on a first-come first-serve basis.

If someone asks for a room already taken or already asked for, I'll message them after I update the map to allow them to choose from what remains.

OK. I just figured it was the biggest, and I was sharing with Kylie. When you asked if I had a preference, I picked that one. lol

I am interested in this roleplay, but I have never played a group roleplay like this before and am reading up on some of the resources that I am finding around the thread currently. If anyone has any pointers, please feel free to fill me in. ESPECIALLY about this large group rp (I understand the sandbox idea but am not sure how the D&D idea behind this works). Any other resources I can read?

Your name is Silvia Longhorn. You are 20 years old. You are sexy and childlike; others describe you as young, sweet and coquettish.
Along with being a maid, you are professional artist.
Although you appear to be a maid, it would be more accurate to call you the master's lover. In combat, you wield a traditional western sword, such as a longsword, rapier, flamberge, two-handed sword or the like. When you are extremely upset, you get into whatever vehicle is handy and go for a joyride at at least twice the speed limit. Due to your notable Luck, you have the ability Saw It; You can declare that you've seen something happening in the mansion; you can decide the timing too. You also have the power of Chance Meeting; By taking 2 points of Stress, you can have an NPC that's just showing up for the first time be an acquaintance from some time before.

I still need help!

...there's a Maid game in the works and I managed to miss spotting it for over two weeks? I am deeply embarrassed.

And since it says still open, I'd like to transition from that into that I am totally interested, and the moment I take a nap will work up a character if that's still okay and all?

Oh ow....those stats aren't the best. You might want to re-roll those attributes. I'll put you down as interested either way; welcome aboard!

As for how this game works, I need you to be a bit more specific about what kind of help you are asking for--are you wanting a brief set of rules for how MAID works (don't worry; it's much simpler than D&D), or are you asking about posting...?

Yup yup, you're more than welcome to join in--I'm going to be updating this today with the map information, some information on Sapporo, and highly likely, since I see multiple people with sheets done, I will consider making an OOC.



Those of you with sheets done, are you wanting an OOC a bit early so you can take some time before the game starts in December to chatter and create some bonds and pre-existing friendships/relationships for your maids?

I was wondering about how this games works yes. I have never done a 'game' style group before. Also, for the posting it would be nice to know if it is free form or is will have a posting order. Also maybe something to explain a little bit more about maid itself? Thank you :) Also, I will look into the stats >//< Though I really like the appearance/special qualities and such like. So I just need to reroll the stats, which will change only her maid power I believe. I will do that now, thank you.

I'll get a brief set of system rules posted sometime today or tomorrow; it's a very easy game to pick up, so I have no doubts that it'll be a cinch to get. I'm sure you are not the only one who would like them posted for easy reference anyway.  ;D

Also, for the posting it would be nice to know if it is free form or is will have a posting order.

Posting will be very freeform with no set order. I have not set a posting minimum or any limitations about post types, as this group seems like it will be large, and I want to think about what would be best for everyone. Right now, I lean to just asking for two posts a week and having no limitations regarding post length (so you could have long posts if you wanted or very short; it wouldn't matter, so long as there were 2).

Also maybe something to explain a little bit more about maid itself? Thank you :)

I'll dig up some info about the actual game (when it came out, how it was received, things like that), but the precept of it is simple. It revolves around the Japanese anime "maid" tropes you see so often (in manga as well), and whoever manages their employment. What's great about the game is it's flexibility and randomness; you could have maids who are androids or demons to maids who are 100% ordinary. It's a tabletop rpg that I feel is truly character-driven; everything focuses on the characters, their jobs, and how well (or not so well) they can get along with each other. Ultimately, it's a light comedy game with a slight focus on drama and romance, no matter what genre it's put in. More on it later when I dig up some info.

Also, I will look into the stats >//< Though I really like the appearance/special qualities and such like. So I just need to reroll the stats, which will change only her maid power I believe. I will do that now, thank you.

You can keep the special qualities and appearance, if you like--and if you prefer not to re-roll your attributes, that's okay.  I'm only suggesting it because yours came out a teensy bit on the low side.

Much improved! This looks a lot better.  ;D

I'll create one some time this evening (it's 2 p.m. for me, so it'll be a few hours), but I will get one up so everyone can get to know each other a bit better. I'll get it done after the map update.  :-)

Man, these are fun to roll up. I got the weirdest set of coincidences. Although full admission  I picked the colours and changed one quality (short skirt > skull) after I realised I had the image that described her.

I also rerolled the stats once as I got a grand total of 6 first try, no joke.

Shirasaka Misaki

Athletics 1
Affection 0
Skill 4
Cunning 2
Luck 2
Will 0

Maid Type: Sexy, Lolita
Uniform Colours: White and Red
Age: 18
Eyes: Brown
Hair: Blonde

Special Qualities: Devil Summoner, One Eye Hair, Overactive Imagination, Skull
Weapon: Summoning
Maid Roots: Who Knows?
Maid Powers: 4-D Dress, Ultimate Menu
Stress Explosion: Alcohol

Favour: 0
Spirit: 0

Misaki is a delicately built girl, with a sweet demeanour that conflicts with the goth loli style with hints of vampishness she prefers when out of uniform. Despite being generally competent at her job she gets easily discouraged, frequently consoling herself at the bottom of a bottle at the slightest hint of things not going her way. That combined with her frequent trips through her own head and accompanying ferocious blushes leaves her somewhat distant from many of her peers.

Much of her success lies in the small army of minor demons and devils she commands, her goth stylings not merely for show, giving her many spare hands to help out, and sometimes do the work for her as she daydreams. She is pretty sure that it was during one of her little episodes that someone had her sign up to become a maid, probably one of the little devils she keeps working for her. Possibly as a prank, or in return for a service she can't remember now. Or she might have been drunk. She swore of drinking for a while after she woke up in uniform, just in case.

It didn't last for long.

Map updated!

I have edited to allow for a couple extra bedrooms!

Zaer, now that there are some more rooms, it will give you a bit more to pick from.

The OOC will take a bit longer this evening than I expected, but it will be up some time tonight.  ;D

EDIT: Jr, after perusing the thread, I saw where you mentioned wanting a room nearest the mistress, so I put that down for Daigo. Let me know if that's okay.

If I have missed anyone asking for a room, please let me know and I will get your character added!
