A choice of group RPs.... (Please vote for your favourite)
« on: June 21, 2014, 07:34:59 AM »
Well, it seems that my latest attempt at a group game has flubbed, so I have a GM slot open.

I have a number of ideas and I have no idea which one to go for, so I am going to leave this to a public vote.

Just because you vote doesn't mean you have to play and vice versa - not voting does not mean you can't play.

These are the options:

1) Cluedo Human N/C Freeform - Mystery

I have tried to run this three times and each time it never got as far as even the dead body being found.

Basically it is a murder mystery in the Agatha Christie style. I play a serious bitch who has pissed off a lot of people. Everyone else plays the people she has pissed off. Possibly, one person plays the sleuth, although this is not necessary. Character sheets will be PMed to me, and each of them will contain a motive for your character to murder mine, and whether you want to be the murderer or not. All the character sheets will be edited by myself to remove this info before being made public.

I will select someone to be the murderer by whatever means I see fit, and we start the show the evening prior to my character's untimely demise, enabling everyone to establish publicly why they dislike my character and also establish an alibi if they desire. We cut to next morning and my character is found dead. It is then up to the rest of you to deduce who the killer is before the police get there... (there will be a reason they can't).

2) Kelly's Heroes Human Light Semi-system (GM does the dice) "McGuffin Hunt"

Again I have tried to run this one before. It was a non-starter, because for some unfathomable reason, No-one Wanted To Play Kelly, Or Big Joe...! Without those two key characters there was simply no point! And I was not playing them because I was playing "The Rest Of The World" - All the Germans, and all the Americans not part of the immediate platoon.

If you are unfamiliar with the story, it is a WWII movie about a recon platoon that goes on a self imposed mission to liberate a bank containing $16,000,000 of gold bullion, 30 miles behind enemy lines. For our purposes it would be set either in an alternate earth WWII where women soldiers served on the front lines, or in a near future conflict using modern day weaponry...

3) On Golden Pond Human Extreme Consensual Freeform Sandbox

Another one I have tried several times before. It generates interest then no-one bothers posting. Pisses me off!

Anyway this one is not about being pissed off, but pissed on. Welcome to Madame Eau D'Or's watersports school. If you want to learn about bathroom play (golden only) this is the place to come. All players must be into watersports, and I would prefer it if most characters were too.

4) The Pony Palace Human Extreme N/C Freeform Sandbox

This one is a new idea I've been toying with for some time. It is all about Pony Play.

If you don't know what that is, Google it, but not at work or when you family is watching! Basically people dress up in sexy bondage costumes that resemble ponies, and other people train them make them pull carts, reward them with sex, punish them with pain...

The idea is tentative and would require a co-GM, but basically my idea is that I run a "pony ranch" with male and female ponies, some there willingly, others not, and rich customers come to the ranch for a ride...

5) The Drall Exotic N/C System

This one is the idea I had in my sig up until today. It requires a co-GM, as the lady who was my Co-GM can't do it now due to R/L commitments. Hence I have removed it. The game requires a lot of work still to put together and a Co-GM who is excited by the idea.

Basically it involves a spacecraft getting attacked by blue amorphous blobs, which slowly take over and reduce any player characters they catch to a state of continuous orgasmic bliss!

6) The Incubators Exotic N/C (or extreme) Freeform

Back to the reboots. I ran this one some time go, it started well, but then people just dropped out for no reason.

In this one, the Earth has been invaded by blob-like aliens with tentacles. All humans over 29 are killed. All humans under 16 have been taken away, no-one knows where. Those in between who are fit, healthy and "atractive" are rounded up and put into bare concrete compounds, where they are kept in mixed gender groups, naked.

The aliens are genderless, but have two classes, warriors are aggressive and can mimic anything. They lay eggs but the eggs are infertile. Then there are the breeders, These aliens can change shape but cannot copy texture or colour, so cannot fool a human. Their purpose is to lay eggs which are self fertilized, inside the orifices of another living creature - preferably mammalian, and preferably intelligent.

Well, you work it out...



So, I'm going to go with the majority vote, BUT, under the following conditions:

a) If the vote goes for Kelly's Heroes, I need a minimum of two people volunteering to play either Kelly or Big Joe.
b) If the vote goes for The Pony Palace I need at least one person volunteering to Co-GM who has some experience of GMing
c) If The vote goes for The Drall, I need someone to volunteer to co-GM and help me create the game system. Also I will need to check with the other lady that it is okay to use her idea.



NOTE: All the RPs will be LGBT friendly. They may or may not be QI friendly depending.

Over to you, Elliquiy.

I voted for Cluedo, because such a game always sounds really fun to me, even though I’m not sure it could ever really work given the unfortunate player drop rate most games experience.  Be nice if did though.

And then I voted Pony Ranch and Incubators, just because.   Also…could someone tell me what QI stands for in this context?

Mystery does not work well on forums because they require tons of back and forth between players and GM in quick questions. The only time I ran a successful mystery game was in person and even then I had to have the plot fairy whack players with her CLUE BY FOUR to get them on track.

I always hoped to run a group game that did not have a massive (30-50%) drop-out rate. I can understand it if a couple of people have sudden commitments come up, or if the GM is not clear on what the game involves and players find out after it starts that it isn't for them after all, but I have always tried (and these days I think I succeed) to give as much detail regarding what the game involves as possible, right up front.

The problem, I think, lies in people not bothering to read it...!

Anyway... This is about me having a number of ideas vying for my attention, and not the reasons group games fail.

I've personally found that mystery RPs work exceedingly well.

Like most RPs, I suspect their success is partly a combination of finding the right players/GM, a lot of enthusiasm, and a lot of luck.

Voted for Kelly's heroes on the assumption that - like your first attempt to run that game - we can make our own interpretation of the character.
So Big Joe would become Big Joelle. ;)

BTW, I would gladly play Big Joe (or rather his female stand-in). I think I played a variation on private Babra whom was actually called Barbara last time around. :)

No one volunteered to be Big Joe and no-one volunteered to be Kelly.

It kind-of doesn't work without the two principal characters!

Eventually people stopped posting to the recruitment thread, and I couldn't be bothered to bump it.

Thanks, Aurelie.

Although at the moment it is looking like Incubators is in front by a tentacle-tip

I'm actually rather pleased that I've already got 18 voters and it's only been a couple of days!

.Also…could someone tell me what QI stands for in this context?

The last two letters of LGBTQI - Queer or Questioning, and Intersexed.

A note on the word "Queer"
Queer

1. An umbrella term which embraces a matrix of sexual preferences, orientations, and habits of the not-exclusively-heterosexual-and-monogamous majority. Queer includes lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transpeople, intersex persons, the radical sex communities, and many other sexually transgressive (underworld) explorers.

2. This term is sometimes used as a sexual orientation label instead of ‘bisexual’ as a way of acknowledging that there are more than two genders to be attracted to, or as a way of stating a non-heterosexual orientation without having to state who they are attracted to.

3. A reclaimed word that was formerly used solely as a slur but that has been semantically overturned by members of the maligned group, who use it as a term of defiant pride. ‘Queer’ is an example of a word undergoing this process. For decades ‘queer’ was used solely as a derogatory adjective for gays and lesbians, but in the 1980s the term began to be used by gay and lesbian activists as a term of self-identification. Eventually, it came to be used as an umbrella term that included gay men, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgendered people. Nevertheless, a sizable percentage of people to whom this term might apply still hold ‘queer’ to be a hateful insult, and its use by heterosexuals is often considered offensive. Similarly, other reclaimed words are usually offensive to the in-group when used by outsiders, so extreme caution must be taken concerning their use when one is not a member of the group

Greetings lady Chrystal,

In an effort to help out, I have cast two votes. One for Cluedo and one for Kelly's Heroes. The others are waaaaay out of my interest field so they did not speak to me. The former two, however, seem extremely interesting. If it turns out to be either, I'd be interested to see where it goes.

Willing to play Kelly's Hero, if my character can be female, and gay.  Is it realistic, however, to have female soldiers in WWII?  Perhaps nurses are recruited?

Not realistic at all, no...

As I said, it would be either an alternative universe WWII in which emancipation of women happened in the 18th century rather than the 19th, and gay rights were established in the early 20th century rather than the 21st, so that we could have female gay and gay female soldiers. OR, a near future conflict, probably in This setting, although that is not decided.

I'm in then, if it happens.  Either.  haven't seen the movie, but might try and look it up.  I would be a shy soldier, up for anything if someone shows me love.

Cluedo...so it was that person with that thing in that room.  I knew it.  I'm a sucker for a good mystery.

I'd give Kelly's a good go, Over hill, over dale, As we hit the dusty trail, And those caissons go rolling along....

I have to say, while I love "Kelly's Heroes" as a movie (it was one of my dad's favorites!) I just can't wrap my head around this as a RP, at least not as this particular concept.

Still, I voted for some others. :)

No worries, we are actually looking for a FEMALE player to take that spider role.
