Harem shows. If you've ever watched anime, you've come across them - Tenchi Muyo, To Love-Ru, Love Hina, Negima, Ranma 1/2, Ai Yori Aoshi, I Couldn’t Become a Hero, So I Reluctantly Decided to Get a Job... the list goes on and on, for literally hundreds of shows.

The idea of there being one male character (usually clueless in the ways of sex and seduction) that is being chased after by several (or many) female characters is a popular theme, and it's not limited to just anime shows. It's shown to be one of the most successful ways to make a romance story appealing to both men and women. Even stories that aren't officially harem-based often have harem fan ideas - I'm sure you've seen some picture of Batman being fawned over by all of the female characters, heroes and villains alike, that are in his orbit. But there's always a catch that's almost never addressed - what happens when the man chooses? Does he pick one woman to be his wife, and the rest give up and move on with their lives, looking for another man? Is he fundamentally unable to make a decision, and keeps all (or most) of the ladies in an illicit harem relationship? Or is there some middle ground?

We're going to explore that here. This is going to be an open-themed free-form game, with a possible ending scripted down the road. The plot is simple - A very rich man has died, and his only son, who has been estranged for years and sent to a boys-only boarding school, is now coming home. But there's a catch - the boy only gets to inherit if he provides an heir himself, continuing the family dynasty.

The family estate has many women who work there, some of whom might be interested in having the place become their homes permanently, by becoming his wife. Some of them knew him when they were young, some have never met him. Some of them are around the same age he is, while some are older... possibly much older! And the heir, himself, hasn't seen women since before he went through puberty, and hasn't got the first clue of how to deal with women.

Is this a way for me to have sex scenes with lots of different female players/characters? Well, yes, that's part of the point. ;) But it's also a way to expand the theme - the character set will be open to men as well as women. The butler, the gardner, the mail man... there's a lot of options for other men to take interest in the goings-on, and perhaps some of the ladies will decide that they're more interested in love with someone else than competing with a gaggle of other women for the heir. And perhaps those men might decide to simply take advantage of some of the blossoming beauties in the household, not even waiting for the Heir to make a decision. Perhaps they've been lusting after the ladies for a while, but worried about losing their job if the elderly rich man found out about it. The possibilities here are just as broad as the ladies. And perhaps some of the ladies aren't really interested in the Heir, so much as the other ladies flocking around the Heir...

I'm not going to set an upper limit on the number of characters, but the female cast must equal or exceed the male cast (and ideally be 2:1 or so). Having 12 ladies and 8 men - fine. Having 3 ladies and 10 men - not so much.

Will love conquer all? Or will the frenzied attention of the ladies make the young man simply accept as many of them as he can? Our role-playing will give us the answer to these questions and more on the next episode of Soap! Wait, forget that last part... =>_>=

The basic plot: *Heir* is a young man, only 19 years old. He's returning home after years at a boys-only boarding school, because his father has died. His family is rich beyond compare - money isn't a problem, at all, ever. And Father's only Will statement is that in order for *Heir* to claim the entire Family fortune, he has to get married before he turns 20, and demonstrate his attempts to *ahem* foster an heir himself, to continue the family dynasty through another generation. The problem is that *heir* has no real understanding of women - he's been in the boys-only school since before puberty.

Note that when the story starts, nobody (other than the Lawyer) knows about the Will clause, and are only about to find out about it after he arrives home.

Story Elements: There will be love, lust, hot sex, cold panics, jealousy, and more, for sure. Possible sex scene elements includes: Straight sex, Harem-ish gang-bangs, embarrassed interruptions, spying voyeurs, bisexual and lesbian scenes, the full range of BDSM, non-consensual rape, semi-consensual manipulation, and more. What there won't be are the more extreme elements in the kettle - no vore, necrophilia, coprophilia, limb removal, and so on - the items commonly set in players' "hell no" categories. ;)

World Background: The game is set in a "modern-fantasy" world. The technology is a bit behind modern day - cars are rare and generally only owned by rich people, the internet doesn't exist (but Paranet, a magical communication network, does), phones and other devices are partially magic and partially technology. Magic isn't common, but it isn't very rare, either. Players can ASK if their characters can use magic, but the answer is probably "no" if they're in their teens or very early 20's. Nonhuman characters may have minor magical abilities, however.

Female Character Details: Female characters are generally expected to be more or less attractive, by any definition possible. Tall and thin, short and plushy, huge breasts, Itty-Bitty-Titty-Committee, whatever. It's your character, not one of a bunch of Stepford Bishojo girls. The creators of female characters CAN choose to have them know *Heir* from when they were pre-teen kids, before *Heir* was sent off to school. The creators of female characters can also choose to make it so that they're unacknowledged (and unknown, officially) half-siblings of *Heir* - Father liked to get around and play with ladies all over the place! Yes, even if you're a half-breed non-human race, this still applies. Father was kinky. But it's your decision to make, and if I end up having zero potential incest partners, I'll be absolutely fine with that.

Male Character Details: Male characters are also expected to be more or less attractive, because that's the way anime shows are. ;) Male characters can also know *Heir* from childhood, or from school. If they know him from school, then they'll have to be in the 20-28 year old range.

Character race details: *Heir* is human, and so was his father (and mother, for that matter, but she's been gone for years). Characters can be human or almost any demihuman race you can imagine. That means that they must have two arms, two legs, a more-or-less normal (and cute/attractive) face, and so on. Wings, tails, etc. are fine. A small list of possible character races: elf, hobbit halfling, cat-girl (both the kind that look human with cat ears and tail, and the kind with fur), dog-girl (same), human-sized fairie, mermaid (if she has human legs while not in the water)... the list can go on and on. They can also be cute monster girls (or boys), typically explained as being a half-breed. Again, if I end up with all Human players, I'll be fine with that. Play what you want to play, not what you think I (or other players) think you should be. ALSO, monster-girls (or boys) can have a "monster-mode" if appropriate (such as a "werewolf" looking human most of the time, but going wolfy now and then).

Relationship details: You can set up pre-starting relationships between other characters if you have their agreement. Does the Cook want to have an established relationship with the Butler when the game starts? That's fine, if he agrees to it. Are the Chauffeur and Gardener really close friends? No problem. Does one of the Maids get kinky with another Maid when bored? Also fine.  :o

As a side note: I'll expect the OOC thread, or possibly a separate thread dedicated to it, will involve discussions of harem anime shows. I've got a few that are my personal favorites. =^_^=

Character Roles/Jobs:


Accountant (M/F) - The person who helps the Heir take care of the economics of the Family's money and investments. Possibly the job that spends more time with the Heir than anyone else, with the possible exception of the Butler.
Butler (M) - the Butler's job is to take care of the Family's needs. With the Father dying and the Heir-son gone, he's been trying to keep himself busy, but it's time for him to get back to work! Taken
Chauffeur (M/F) - The person who drives the company vehicles. Not only is the Chauffeur responsible for driving the Heir around, he/she is also involved in supply runs and other instances of driving the household vehicles. Limit of 2.
Chef (M/F) - This is a catch-all for anyone who prepares food. Your character could be the master chef, the sous-chef (second-in-command), or any of a dozen other specialties - or just one of the kitchen workers. Limit of 4. Master Chef taken
Gardener (M/F) - Someone who takes care of the plantlife outside of the mansions. A fairly free-form job, the gardeners can probably wander the premises at will. Limit 1.
Groundskeeper (M/F) - The person who keeps the rest of the outside repaired and in good shape. Works closely with the Gardener. May double as a repairman/repairwoman at times. Limit 1. Taken
Guard (M/F) - It's this person's job to keep everyone else in the household safe, but especially the family members! Limit 1. Taken
Housekeeper (F) - The person in charge of the Maids, this person's job is to keep track of what cleaning work needs to be done. Limit 1. Taken
Lawyer (M/F) - The person who is managing the Father's will and testament, and the only person who knows what the Will's actual achievement goals are... Taken
Maid (F) - A mansion this big needs a lot of people to keep it clean! And the Father had a definite preference for young, cute, and scantily-clad. The Maid Uniforms are fairly skimpy and sexy! No limit - a dozen maids is fine, too. ;)
Nurse (M/F) - Responsible for taking care of minor injuries and illnesses for everyone in the household, this job has some magical training. Limit of 2.
Tailor (M/F) - Making and repairing clothing in the household is almost a full-time job - those Maid's outfits seem to tear so easily... Limit of 1. Taken

Other possible characters:

Cousin (F) - This young lady still lives in the house and takes advantage of her time there. She's probably between school semesters. Incestuous? Lesbian? Troublemaker? You decide. Limit of 1.
Self-Proclaimed Rival (M) - A (former) friend of the Heir, he's decided that it's his purpose in life to do what the Heir does, only better.

Note that these are NOT the only jobs and roles available. If you have an idea that I haven't listed, please feel free to PM me.

The Heir's details:

Basic Details and Background: - Septimus Bartholomew Winterbilt (called "Tim" or "Timmy" by everyone except his father, teachers, and government documents) is the Heir. Recently turned 19 years old, he stands 6 feet tall (give or take a blip), and has a light athletic build. His hair is light brown, his skin is lightly tanned, and he has a good-natured smile most of the time.

When Tim was young, his family was very indulgent for him, giving him most of the things he wanted. When he heard about treehouses, the Butler and Groundskeeper put aside their rivalry and built one over an afternoon. When he heard about saunas, his parents hired engineers to replace an unused storage room over the swimming pool, complete with a large trap door so that he could do cannon-balls into the pool. When he learned about sex... wait, he hasn't learned that yet.

In short, he was a spoiled little rich boy in many ways. But he wasn't the sort of self-absorbed, greedy brat that you would normally expect to see. His parents were quick to correct him when he did things wrong, and made sure that he had enough attention to learn how to be nice to other people.

In particular, both parents made sure that he was around other children frequently, and learning how to be a good, social individual. While his mother made sure that he played with children of a wide range of races to prevent him from becoming racist and arrogant about other species, his father made sure that the play-times included lots of little girls, in the hopes that they would someday be Tim's consorts. His father had quite a few consorts himself, spending time with other ladies when Tim's mother wasn't available or in the mood. It was one of his few hobbies.

All of that changed on one fateful day. His mother was killed in a tragic petting zoo accident, and his father found that he was unable to handle Tim's upbringing all by himself. Tim was sent off to a boys-only boarding school, and has not seen women at all for the last 10 years, since before he hit puberty.

As a result, Tim is very clueless when it comes to gender relationships. He doesn't really understand the idea of dating, and while he most certainly does have a libido of his own (thanks to his father's genes), he doesn't really have the first clue about how sex and inter-gender relationships really work. He remembers the bits his parents told him when he was young - be nice and polite to girls, son. But beyond that? Zero, zippo, nada.

- - - = = = ^ ^ ^ _ _ _ ^ ^ ^ = = = - - -

Writing/Role Playing Special Detail: While normal rules against God-Moding still apply for most of this game (namely, don't dictate other players' actions without their express approval), it is relaxed when interacting with Tim. Female characters are able to use Light-to-Medium God-Moding when writing actions with Tim, provided that they're not interfering or being rude with other characters in the process.

For example, Mary the Priestess finds Tim in the hallway, walking from one place to another. She can grab Tim and drag him off to the Religious Nook, and even get him to do some actions, without having to have me post back-and-forth through it - she can simply post his following her to the Religious Nook, and his increasingly-nervous following of her instructions - "This is about respecting the Goddess, right?" However, if Aisha the Catgirl saw Mary drag Tim off, and followed to the Nook, she wouldn't be able to drag Tim away without either interacting with Mary, or waiting for Mary to be done with Tim.

Sexual orientation: Tim is the virgin of all virgins. He hasn't seen porn, and doesn't really know what sex is. He knows he's got some urges, but doesn't know how to deal with them. While Tim is pliant when it comes to non-sexual activity, he is neither a Dom or Sub at the start of the game - although he could become either (or both) depending on how the girls act with him over time.

Skills: Tim's years at the boarding school have given him a very solid range of skills, and as such, he can help out in almost any task around the Mansion, if asked. He's a competent swimmer (and this is how he's most likely to exercise, when he has the opportunity), he has a strong back for lifting heavy objects, and can run short distances swiftly. His education angled more toward mathematics, accounting, and management, but there's very little that he can't do with at least a neophyte skill level.

More Gameplay Information: Although this is an open-form role-play game (In other words, no stats, no dice-rolling, etc.), Tim has a complex stat grid. His attitudes for each girl, and for women in general, will be altered by how the different ladies treat him over the course of the game. Likewise for the male characters, but to a lesser degree... but if he catches the Butler stealing wine, for example, his opinion and trust for the Butler will go down a bit, and his overall Trust stat will also drop a little.

This means that he'll gain or lose Trust and Like for the girls based on their behavior and actions - and not just against himself! If he sees one girl being mean to another, he'll lose some Like for that girl. That doesn't mean that she can't end up seducing him, though. Like I said, it's a complex stat grid. And while many of the stat changes will be posted at the end of my posts, not all of them will be.

Girls who knew Tim from his childhood start off with 5 Trust and 5 Like - while he remembers them, he's been away from them for longer than he was ever with them, and only remembers it somewhat dimly. Other girls that he meets will gain (or lose) some during their first personal encounter with him. The same holds true for other characters that he already knows - the Butler has met him a few times, at least.

Important Thread List:

Character Index
OOC Chat

- - - = = = # # # : : : # # # = = = - - -

Q&A List:

1. Are you doing this all by yourself?
1A. No, actually. I have a co-GM, ReaperDouble0, who will be assisting me with GM issues.
2. I'm not ready / too busy to join right now, but I want to play. Can I join later?
2A. Yes, absolutely. After the game goes live, the Application thread will remain open, and new men and ladies can be added provided there's a good reason for it. Your character was away on scheduled vacation, a new hire, etc.
3. I want to play a futanari (hermaphrodite, "chicks with dicks") character, is that okay?
3A. I'm keeping the futa category very small. We had one character that could change genders (including to futa mode) at will in the first version of the game, and that went well; I'm willing to consider them this time around, but two will be the absolute limit. It will require a careful check of the character; please send via PM before posting it here.
4. I want a job that isn't listed in the Roles/Jobs list. Can I come up with something different?
4A. Yes, absolutely. The list is simply the most obvious and likely jobs available. If you can come up with some other job that makes sense, by all means, suggest it.
5. I want to make a grim-dark character. Those are in anime, it should be good, right?
5A. No, not really. This game is based on anime sitcom themes, and as such, we want to keep the generally light-hearted attitude of sitcom genres.


More questions to be added as they come!

Something that should probably be discussed more clearly this time is plot and pace. While I do expect there to be several "episodes" (or many, depending on how the game goes), each episode is only going to be controlled loosely by the GM team. We'll have some events planned, and the fun will be in having the characters play through them.

That said, it's going to be up to the various players and their interactions with each other to keep the ball rolling. If you think of a subplot, go with it. If you're not sure if it'll fit with the main plot, send us a PM and ask.

This isn't just MY game - it belongs to ALL of the players who are participating.
