Ah, now we are talking! Plot Bunnies! Characters! Details! World building!
In short, I have been thinking about the possibilities of ‘abusing’ a love potion for a story. One might argue that every love potion is abusive, but this is not what I am talking about here. A love potion makes the victim fall in love with the creator. But what if what he wants is not just the victim’s undying love, but something more
? Sex, certainly, but also submission and service
: Fighting for his cause, kneeling at his feet, serving at his table…
Could she refuse?
Now I don’t want to get all hung up on the concepts of good and evil here, so let’s just agree that getting people hooked on love is ‘not very nice’. But maybe the ends justify the means if he is turning a drow adventuring party into a force for good. Or perhaps his ends are a bit more… selfish in nature and he doesn’t worry all that much about morality anyway. Finally, it could all be an accident. Please have a look at my sample story to get a feel for what I am looking for in terms of interactions.
Either way, my character is going to be domineering with his playmates, but not overly cruel. He will treat them with the condescending kindness usually reserved for pets. He will touch and tease them when and how he pleases. He will make them kneel and feed them table scraps. There may be a few slaps, spankings, small humiliations and other ‘mild’ punishments to set them right but, hooked on a love potion, withdrawing his attention and affection is the most effective punishment and the girls will probably opt for a spanking over a cold shoulder, if given the choice.
Generally, he likes to bask in the attention he is showered with and will return it generously. The girls get petted and cared for, fed and kissed, comforted and encouraged. Provided, of course, that they have been ‘good’ (whatever that means in the context). Given time, he will even begin to return the love he is shown by the girls. And, given even more time, the love potion might wear off and their little ‘arrangement’ may surprisingly stay intact even when the primary mover is gone.
Of course there will be jealousy between the girls and this will be one of the main sources of internal conflict. Everyone is scurrying for favours with the master and little things like the right to sit at his right-hand side, who gets to serve him ale and who carries his personal belongings might become a serious point of contention. None of them can raise a hand against the master, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t fight amongst each other
. Keeping the peace and avoiding bloodshed may easily become a full-time job for our poor master. But if he is doing his job well, he might be able to convince the girls that sharing is caring or that they can blow off some steam amongst themselves if he is otherwise occupied.
Being on a love potion puts the girls on a constant rollercoaster of emotions, as if they were back in their teens and madly in love. If the jealousy gets bad enough, shackles and chains may be necessary to keep squabblers separated. And at night, it might simply be more comforting for the master to keep the girls restrained anyway. Who knows when the love potion will wear off and what will happen then? On a lighter note, being kept in chains for the day might simply signify that this very lucky girl doesn’t need to lift a finger while she is being pampered, teased and toyed with by the master.
The party composition is open for discussion. I was thinking that the master would be more of a supporting role as a ‘mentor’ in the background (and as a utility spellcaster when absolutely needed), while the girls are the primary hitters and problem solvers. To stay with the ‘affectionate slavery’ theme, he might also fill the role of a healer, caring for any girl who gets wounded in his service.
In general, I was thinking that this would be more of a player/GM type game with you playing the adventuring party and me playing the monsters and the environment – with the interaction between the party and their mentor/master added on top, of course. You can play the whole party or pick just one of the girls as your ‘player character’ and I will take over the rest as NPCs – or we could share them.
I’m offering this as a 1on1 instead of a group game because group games seem to fall apart a bit too often. But if you have a reliable partner or two on hand with whom you want to play in my game, then that’s possible.
If you like, we can use a rule system but I’m not sure if that is really necessary. If you insist, then D&D 3d edition would be my primary system choice simply for the fantasy appeal. I certainly like making up sexy gear and kinky magic items, but systems tend to slow a forum play down. Combat, especially, flows very slowly. So we would have to play it out on instant messenger or simplify it drastically.
Sexually, I already mentioned bondage and spankings, but also (condescending) affection and kindness. I’m relatively open to what other sexual interactions are going to take place. Generally, I am what they call a ‘service top’, so what turns you on, turns me on
. Make sure to let me know what that is. For myself, I would like to see some ‘training’ going on in the sense that the girls have their limits slowly pushed as they sink deeper into sexual submission. If, for example, the prospect of wearing that tiny little outfit he bought for you in town seemed daunting at first, a week in the wilderness of sleeping by the campfire and getting fondled and teased non-stop while he whispers in your ear how sexy
you look in it might slowly change your mind. Generally, I like physical seduction (endless teasing and toying ), soft humiliation (having to wear clothes that are a bit too revealing for comfort, being called slutty pet names, being hand-fed or having to ask for permission to cum etc.) and ‘firm but fair’ loving discipline (spankings, bondage, taking away rights and privileges…). For this specific roleplay, I also expect there to be a lot of cattiness and maybe some bi-curious exploration. Maybe a few toys would get used on the girls during their play sessions with the master. Shackles and a collars could signify ownership and sexy clothing could help them win the master’s attention. All of those, of course, could be magical
. Kinky magic items, yay!
Have a look at my On/Offs
if you need to know more details or send me a Private Message. And although fantasy offers a lot of opportunities for human/monster interactions and various humanoids to choose from, I would prefer it if we stayed in the closer human family of basic-book races
for characters. It’s not a hard limit, though, and a bit more ‘exotic’ beings could make an appearance as NPCs.
