Tamashi is an 18 year old high school senior, his life was completely normal until one summer holiday he bumped into the first girl that would call him Master! All of a sudden more people came into his life until a whole bunch of supernatural goings became his daily life! Surrounded by a bunch of highschool girls of varying origin (including the odd schoolboy and trans too...), not every one is trying to get into Tamashi's pants (some are trying to get with each other!) but everyone needs their senpai for some reason, if they only they could just get his attention for one moment...

OOC Thread Here:
https://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=237506.0

The above is the general idea for a game of Maid rpg, a system that usually is based around a Master (the GM) and the Maids (the PCs) have to get his attention in various ways, competing to get the most.

However, I decided to flip things on it's head a little and gain inspiration from some of my fave anime, like Tenchi Muyo! and (more strongly) Bakemonogatari. The concept being the Master is the PC's senpai in highschool and each Maid has a reason for trying to get his attention. I felt it would make for a better narrative and sandbox that way.
I'm also allowing PCs to play teacher characters too now btw!

Also anyone can crush on anyone else, not just the Master... One reason your character may need to get Tamashi's attention is for their wisdom in helping your character nab their crush.



As a quick note, if you like the sound of the game but don't own the system, it's available at drivethru in pdf format for a super decent price.

Let me know if interested below and I'll try and answer any questions you may have also.

Excellent stuff, there is very much room! ^^

I'd like to keep recruitment open-ended with a more the merrier feel. Okay, so there's some interest... If possible I'd like to see some characters made up, I'm going to be open on character sheet format as the game stats tend to tell a lot of what makes a Maid up. If interested, post up your characters and lets see who'll be joining.

Oh and bonus points for character pics actually in highschool uniform or whatever fits the random concepts sure to come in. :)

And, character rolled!

Name: Kato Iori
Age: 17
Hair: Green
Eyes: Sky blue
Clothes: Beige

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

Maid Types: Pure/Boyish
(+Affection, Athletics, -Cunning, Skill)

Qualities: Sickly, Actually a guy
Root: Childhood Friend
Stress Explosion: Sleep
Maid Power: Windows of the Soul
Weapon: Mop/broom

Spirit: 20
Starting Favour: 8

Background
A friend of Tamashi since they were both little boys, Iori has always been fond of their friend, although it wasn't until rather recently that she began to realize just what her feelings for him really were.
Although most friends would have spent all of their time playing outside together, Iori and Tamashi's early days were, by necessity, spent indoors more often than not. The list of medical conditions that Iori suffers from is depressingly long although, as she is happy to tell those who ask, at least her heart is strong. The rest of her ... not so much. A cold passing around the neighbourhood would put her in bed for days while others had only a sore throat, and then there was her throat and lungs.
Iori speaks softly as raising her voice can easily provoke fits of coughing, and most physical activities quickly leave her exhausted.

And, of course, there's the change in pronouns to consider. When Iori and Tamashi played, Iori barely knew what gender was. But these days Iori is glad that her name works as well for a girl as for a boy, and now terrified at how Tamashi will react to her new, true self.
And these girls calling Tamashi 'Master'? No. He always looked out for her, and now she'll return the favour and keep these girls away from her Tamashi.

Name: Honoka Hitachi
Age: 17
Athletics: 2
Affection: 2+1-1=2
Skill: 2+1=3
Cunning: 1-1=0
Luck: 3
Will: 2

Types: Pure, Cool

Hair: Orange
Eyes: Green
Uniform: White

Special Qualities: Perversion: Exhibitionist, Secret Job: Pro creator (pop artist)

Maid Roots: Admirer of Maids
Stress Explosion: Shopping
Maid Power: Foreboding
Maid Weapon: Guan Dao

Spirit: 20
Favor: 4

Backstory: Honoka has been around the world on tour singing and dancing on stage for thousands of fans at a time, but she wasn't nearly as happy as the tabloids made it out to be.  She had fun while up on stage, and got to go to cool places and do cool things, but most of her smiles were rather halfhearted.  As much fame and money as she had, what she really wanted was to be able to laugh and relax like everyone else her age.  What she really wanted more than anything was a group of real friends and finally she was going to get a chance.

For two years she had been out of country on tour in Europe, then America and was finally coming home.  After dealing with some hassle from her manager she found out that she would no longer have to be home schooled and could go to a regular high school.  It meant relearning how to do things for herself for a while, but if she could get to spend some time living a normal life for a change she would deal with it.

I'll throw my hat it too, though it's been a while since I played Maid.


Name:  Kano (Kah-no, not Kay-no) Matsudara
Age:  Looks sixteen, but who can really say?

Athletics:  3 + 1 1  = 3
Affection:  1
Skill:  2 1 = 1
Cunning:  3
Luck:  3 + 1 = 4
Will:  4

Types:  Boyish, Lolita

Hair
:  Black
Eyes:  Red
Uniform:  White

Special Qualities
:  Easy Going, Vampire

Maid Roots:  Revenge
Stress Explosion:  Complaining
Maid Power:  Immune to Pain

Favor:  2
Spirit:  40

Background
:
Down in the shopping district, rumors circulate about the "Little Princess of Sako Ward".  If one listens to such things, she's a lawless predator who stalks the back alleys and arcades looking for someone foolish enough to challenge her.  Supposedly, during one hot summer, she broke the back of the rising 6 Cataclysms gang single handedly.  Most unbelievably, they say that the gang never recovered, because despite her fierce eyes, the Princess is said to be a small girl with a sweet face!

Of course, all of these things are true, as foolish as you would need to be to believe them.  Kano has a bit of an ace up her sleeve though, young as she seems, the Princess of Sako is an immortal vampire!  Preying on a bunch of puffed up delinquents is a simple matter, when you've risen to a higher rung on the food chain from mankind.

Lately, however, the arcades have seen little of their twin tailed legend, because Kano heard a disturbing rumor.  Though he seems unaware of it himself, Sempai is in fact descended from a group of monster hunters who caused no end of trouble for Kano and her kind a long time ago.  Being the mischievous kind, the thought of turning such a person into a vampire struck her as the best kind of revenge for his ancestors deeds.  If only these other girls would stop interfering!

It's worth noting that despite her fierce reputation, Kano has a few chinks in her stolid armor.  Though coffins are old fashioned and she's not old enough to burst into flame under the light of the sun, the fact remains that she does sleep away most of the day, and can usually be found resting in the bough of a tree or flopped over someplace shady during the daylit hours.  Furthermore, despite her reputation, Kano really is a girl and has a maiden's heart...the fact that she's abysmal at the skills of a house wife is a point she's rather sensitive about.  Don't be surprised if she inflicts her poor cooking on others, eyes glistening with anticipation and hope...after years of undeath, she doesn't even really remember what good food is supposed to taste like.

She is great Gunmetal... Though for E rules, best edit to say she looks at least 16, yeah? ^^;

However, a Bokkuko Vampire chick is very welcome to the game otherwise! Welcome and good job!

Well, I think I had ought to make an actual game up for this, hadn't I? ^^

Which board would people be most comfortable with though? I'm debating at least Non-Con, not that I'm going for that, but we're covered as far as seductions and stress explosions may go and it frees up the writing some.

Also, I think I'm going to allow players to take on second characters if they want to do so... If numbers do seem to stay low or drop-out occurs, there should still be a good number of characters to keep the game rolling that way. ^^

I wonder if we'll get some other interest too. :)

Yeah, Maid can get a bit ... Maid-y. Non-con's probably the safer bet, I think. Not that there'll be tons of non-con stuff, but it gives us wiggle room.
As for second characters, I might roll up another, but I'm already rather attached to Iori. She's disturbingly (considering the whole 'random character rolled in Maid' thing) similar to a much younger version of me.

Speaking of which, if I ever seem out of it or slow responding, poke me. That 'Sickly' result has had a few more years over here, and I might have had a bad day or night and missed something, despite having apparently read it.

I think half the fun of Maid is rolling up the characters, so I may do some pregens for offer to players if they want that option, though there's something more personal (and fun!) in rolling up the character yourself and making them your own... I think the ones listed so far here are amazing! ^^

Here's one more

Name:   Mitsumi Tamaya
Age: 18
Hair Color: Sky Blue
Eye Color: Silver
Uniform Color: Metallic
----------------------------------------
Athletics: 3+1=4
Affection: 3=3
Skill: 3-1=2
Cunning:1=1
Luck:3-1=2
Will:2+1=3
Favor: 6
Spirit: 30
---------------------------------------
Types: Boyish Heroine
Qualities: Uniform - Elf Ears, Overactive Imagination
Roots: Who Knows?
Stress Explosion: Sleep
Power: Super Evasion
Weapon: Hand to Hand

Mitsumi Tamaya is the captain of the girl's swim and dodgeball teams. Although she and Tamashi went to different middle schools, she has known him for the last three years, sharing at least four classes with him, albeit from opposite sides of the room. Although she couldn't say why, she finds him interesting to the point of intriguing. In fact, her grades have suffered because she has spent less time paying attention to the teacher and more daydreaming about him.

But the time for fantasy is past. Mitsumi has promised herself that this year, she will act! Ears or not (Oh - didn't I mention her strangely shaped ears and her self-conscious attitude towards them? Well, there ya go...) she is going to tell him how she feels and then win his heart once and for all. It will take some doing - she certainly recognizes that she isn't the only girl vying for his attention - but it will get done, come Hell or High Water...

I know nothing of maid but it sounds funish.

Hia Golden, Maid is a system game that uses six sided dice, it can be found really cheap as a pdf on drivethrurpg.

As a rundown, basically to do something important, a player rolls a dice and multiplies the result by the stat that is most relevant to their action. The GM (who plays the Master that the Maids all work for) decides the number they need to roll over, which decides if they succeed or not.

Combat comes in when a Maid has to make an opposed roll against someone (maybe another Maid). This basically comes down to which result is highest from the opposing parties, after rolling a dice multiplied by their relevant stat and comparing. The loser takes 'Stress', which can lead to a Stress Explosion (where a Maid can only do the action listed in that part of her character sheet), if Stress mounts up more than her Spirit.



Talking about the results of Stress... What's usually a fair house-rule for the reduction of Stress and the time-out for Stress Explosion in a Pbp environment for those who have recently played Maid in a Pbp format?

A point of Favour for the best answer! xD

Heh, yeah, my curse in Maid character generation seems to be that I always end up with lolita as one of my Types.  Kind of like I can't get through a game of Munchkin without being gender swapped, I've kinda just learned to roll with it.  Still, bumping up that age a bit in the name of compliance, loli seems to be more a body archetype than an indication of character age these days anyway.

I basically agree with Joanie, while I think it's best tone-wise for consensual lewdness (keeps things upbeat in line with the game's comedic roots), having the extra wiggle room non-con allows for can be useful.

Not that I'm at all conniving to go and take sempai by force or anything...

Mmn, as far as Stress Explosions go, my honest experience with Maid in pbp is to just ignore the timing mechanic.  At a table, twenty minutes or so can go by pretty quick, especially since it also includes OOC and break time.  Best to just mark explosions down "Until the end of the scene", in my experience.

The other popular option is to try and map days to minutes somehow (5 min a day or something), but I think we know that in pbp all days are not created equal.

Similarly, it pays to remember that you're not out of the game while Exploded, you can still do things, they just have to tie in to your Explosion somehow.  Sleep can be pretty tough in that regard, though I've seen both Luck and Affection rolls come out during it.

Curses, my cunning sleep-snuggle-senpai plan has been foiled! Now how will I abuse my high Affection?!
 :P

Also, the Explosion = end of current scene thing does seem to work the best. It doesn't go on too long, it has a definite negative effect that will make us want to avoid it, and it doesn't need any fancy timekeeping.

Here is what I've rolled for Tamashi Sempai... :)



Master Type: Layman (Age: 18 years old)
Special Qualities: Sadist, Quiet.
Master Power Sources: Blood Ties, Talent.
Favourite Maid Type: Loli.
Stress Explosion: Alcohol/Drugs (Smokes cigarettes)

Hair: Purple
Eyes: Vermilion

Athletics 1
Affection 3
Skill 2
Cunning 1
Luck 2
Will 2

Spirit 20

Background
Tamashi is a highschool senior and aside from his relation to a fairly well to-do family and a legend of being some kind of prodigy, he's a fairly average guy for his age. Tamashi is fairly quiet and tends to keep to himself, he spends a lot of time on the school roof when he doesn't have a lesson to go to and is a known smoker when things get on top of him. Some say Tamashi is a bit 'hentai' behind closed doors and can be a bit of a 'bastard boyfriend' type, all he's missing is the glasses to complete the anime cliche. He is an affectionate guy though and has a weakness for cute girls, even if it may be to corrupt them...

 Here is my character. She's a WiP at the moment.

Appearance:
Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide


Name: Kaede Yukihiro
Age: appears 30
Sex/Gender: Hermaphordite

Maid Types: Sexy/Heroine
Maid Uniform Colors: Blue/White
Special Qualities: Head Maid, Actually a Guy(Hermaphrodite), Easygoing, Shapeshifter(Fox), Magic(Western Magician),
Maid Roots: Hereditory Maid
Stress Explosion: Drinking Alcohol

Athletics:    2
Affection:   3
Skill:         2
Cunning:   2(+1)=3
Luck:        3(-1)=2
Will:         4(+1)(-1)=4

Maid Power: Absolute Maid

Favor:  6
Spirit:  40

Personality: Kaede is every bit as calm and collected as one of her race can be. She takes her life with an easygoing attitude. Something that in times of great stress can be like a rock. Being older than most of the other maids she views the younger ones as her little sisters who need care and guidence from time to time. For Kaede being a maid is all about a mindset and she has mastered it so she can still be a maid even while wearing a two-piece string bikini on the beach. She will reward maids for a job well done or scold them when they mess up, but she always treats the maids under her with affection and understanding.

Bah, what do the lolis have that Iori doesn't? 
Also, since Mitsumi has known Tamashi (kinda) for the last three years, I suppose Iori knew him much earlier. Like ... up until he was ten or so, maybe? Long enough ago that he won't immediately connect her with the boy he knew, but long enough that Iori has fond memories of him. And I imagine Iori and Mitsumi are going to get along great, what with their mutual appreciation of sempai.  :P

Sorry for the lateness of this. But, are you still interested in accepting applicants, even though you've gotten started already? It's been a while since I've played a Maid RPG game, but playing it in a school-harem sounds like it could be fun.

If not, no worries. I get I came in kinda late. So don't feel the need to stretch things any more than you're comfortable with.  :-)

Description:

Akemi is a lively, playful young woman, renown as a bit of trickster. Friend, peer, or rival alike, she seems to enjoy messing with those around her, even going so far as to pull a fast one on faculty from time to time. In particular, she's the habit spontaneously of saying something rather controversial, daring, or provocative, just to get a rise out of others or manipulate them into some elaborate prank. She's also quite the notorious flirt among her classmates. Her skirt is about as short as she can get away with without breaking the rules, she can be rather suggestive with her comments, and can get quite intrusively physical with males and female classmates alike. Much to their relief (and the occasional disappointment), she's rarely serious, mostly just enjoying seeing others flustered, and just as swift to shrug it off, partly feeding into her reputation as a bit of a tease. Despite the trouble she causes, she often fosters an enjoyable atmosphere when she's around, and manages to keep pretty good relations with most of her classmates, so long as they don't take it too personally. Games and fun aside, she can be charming gal, and tends to be quite friendly, even helpful, if they can get manage to take a good ribbing or two along the way.

Given her gleeful persona, many tend to assume Akemi is a wild-child, hot-headed, impulsive, and constantly getting in trouble. It's true that not everything goes as planned, and she does occasionally get in over her head, but she's actually quite measured, practical and almost unflappable in her way. Those that try to return her games and test her mettle as a trickster find that it's rather difficult to rouse her own passion beyond the confident smirk and obfuscating smile she so often dons, often taking their effort as more of a personal challenge than something that might threaten her. Akemi isn't easily thrown off her game, and more than happy to take control when presented the opportunity, often turning the tables on those who try to get one over on her.

In truth, she actually ranks as one of the top students, not just in her class, but in the whole school. She's quite knowledgeable, savvy, and despite her supposedly impulsive nature, doesn't let her games get in the way of her excellent academics. Strict teachers and more proper peers sometimes find it difficult to believe that the social gladfly and inappropriate flirt such a strong student, so much that she has been accused of cheating or plagiarism on numerous occasions. But, when tested, always seems to prove her studious nature is genuine. She rarely takes it personally, though, even forgiving the accusation and wearing their flustered realization as a personal trophy. Akemi truly prides herself on being difficult to figure out and revels in the confusion she creates, while being able to predict how others will react to her shenanigans.

A childhood friend of Mitsumi, Akemi has always enjoyed teasing the shy athlete, often pushing her past her comfort zone to delight in her adorable reactions, and perhaps push her a bit into being more assertive (despite actually being the younger of the two). Nonetheless, she is her friend, and cares about her happiness. Luckily, it just so happens that Tamashi's second cousin, and the two have a rather amicable relationship. She promised to help her at least get a successful date from her beloved Tamashi-senpai. But, Akemi is still Akemi, and she's certainly is going to have a little fun with along the way.



Here you go! It was an interesting result. Really strong attributes, mixed with some really weak ones. I've never played a character with such a low Will before. It should be fun to see how that plays out. With her Stress Explosion being Mischief, it might actually be fun to see what she does when she gets stressed out.  ;)

I didn't get to bringing up the Fortune Teller aspect. I'm thinking it's just another trick of hers. She probably carries around some tarot cards or divination aspect of some kind, and reads a classmate's fortune, but then tries to manipulate them into making the "prophecy" come true. So, it's not really supernatural (or maybe it is, and she just doesn't realize it), so much as just an opportunity to mess with people some more. She likes to test herself and others that way.

I was originally going to make her a Childhood Friend of Kato, and by extension Tamashi, and form a bit of a trio out of them. However, I thought it best to extend relations to other characters, just to mix things up a bit more. Mitsumi seemed like a good fit for the kind of person Akemi might have a lot of fun teasing, but I am cool to change it to someone else, should she prefer not to.

Lastly, I'm not sure what to do with the Bridal Training root. It doesn't seem like it makes a lot of sense in a school-based game, seeing as school life wouldn't really prepare her for a future as a house-wife. I'm thinking about re-rolling that one, unless you think there's another way to interpret it that would fit.

Anyway, I hope you like! Let me know if there are any issues with the character, or if you'd like a change or two made. Looking forward to hearing back from you! ;D

She seems fun, and as for bridal training, could be interpreted that she's just obsessed about marriage looking for her right man.

Awesome! I'll get caught up today and see if I can't start posting in a bit. Thanks!

She does! I'm glad you think so. I'll do my best to see if she can't make things a little livelier. ;)

I suppose that's a reasonable interpretation. But, I'm not sure if it fits the character. I wrote her to be a cool, unflappable, assertive Social Gadfly-type, with a strong hint of the Tease in there. I'm not sure a character like that is all that obsessed with finding the One. Rather, she the kind who would have fun at the expense of those looking at Tamashi as the One. I mean, I'm sure she'd like a serious boyfriend, but presumably, so does every other character (well, maybe aside Honoka, of course). There's a difference between just wanting it and having an obsession, and I'm thinking she's not the type to take it that far.

I'm sure if I thought hard about it, I might be able to make it stick. But I don't think it's a natural flow, and as such, I think I'll just take that re-roll, in the interest of a quicker resolution. There are a lot of others on the list I think might be a better fit.

And a 61 result says Distant Relative. So, Akemi is Tamashi's Second Cousin, Once Removed. They kinda look alike, right (similar hair and complexion, at least)? I like that one much better. Lots of possibilities to play that one, but the most important is that it gives Akemi a simple, straight-forward reason to be concerned with Tamashi and his romantic life. I think she'd have fun teasing him about his popularity with the ladies. And it explains why she might be a good person for Mitsumi to risk asking help from (assuming she's up for that). Maybe she even lives with our quiet protagonist. Certainly makes the aforementioned trio a possibility as well, even if she's not quite as close to Tamashi or Kita as they are with each other. I'll leave it up to Kita whether or not he knows her well.

I'll make a few modest edits to the sheet, say hello on the OOC, and see if I can't get her started tonight!

Sounds cool :)

I'll likely be updating IC tomorrow, today I have been admittedly nursing a hangover... (xD) However you'll see that not too much is going on and the tone is light and not too serious and stuff. Just a nice game to light post in and just relax to, really...

That was always my concern when I decided to start this, as something light and fun where people shouldn't have to strain over it or the posts there, as life got a bit too bloody serious for me and I decided to make something fun. So hopefully you'll have some easy-going fun too. :)

Ha! Well, you have my sympathies. Taking it easy for tonight sounds like a good idea!  :P

Light-hearted and fun is a good choice for Maid RPG games in general. They're not games they tend to lend too much to complexity or depth. I mean, I'm sure it could be utilized in such a fashion, but I think Maid plays best when one just takes the craziness that regularly pops up with a devil-may-care manner.

I just like a little consistency with my characters, that's all, and I didn't think Bridal Training was a good fit. No worries, though. I don't think I'll have any problems having some easy-going fun with this character.  ;D
