Alright, everyone! So, the story is now evolving.
As stated, there are going to be repeated cases of supernatural bad luck, leading to people running around in tatters or less in very public places. There will be a supernatural aspect in this game. Somebody has the ability to cause this kind of bad luck. The who's, how's and why's will remain for the players to discover, if they so choose. But it will be possible for a character to not only stop the jinx from happening, but to acquire the ability for themselves. At which point, the game should get reaaaalllly interesting!
Part 1: The Setting
This game is going to take place in modern times, in place called Davidson City. Think of it like a fictional Boston. The coast is there, but the city is much better known for its urban community than its beaches. Tall buildings, old money, historical architecture, and a nice New England Bustle. Or put another way, conservative rich bastards.
Now, the city can be beautiful, and the cultural delights here are nothing to sneeze at. In fact, one of the things people seem to like about the town is that the outer section seems to sprawl, but the uptown area is actually fairly tightly packed. It's possible to walk from Rickert University, to a 5 star restaurant called Zoe's, to a posh theater called Thornival's, to the bus station, all in under 20 minutes. And if you like something different, the city almost certainly has it close by. This uptown area, is where the meat of our story takes place.
Part 2: The Characters
The two themes here are exhibitionism / humiliation, and the mystery of finding out who, why, and how the hell are they doing this. Both of those are greatly helped by actually having a bit of a community of characters. Because of that, I'm asking everyone to list a minimum of 3 NPCs when they create their characters. People I can control that your characters are related to. There are three types: a Superior, a Benevolent, and a Complicated NPC. Just listing a simple name and a roll for each will suffice. Or, you can go into detail! Just remember I'll be playing them, so leave a little room for me to add something you might not expect into each one. You can also add more NPCs, as you please. But for now, keep it under 6! And of course, there are no limits or rules on inter-player-character relationships!
As for your character, the only stipulation I need from you is that you have to have a reason to regularly be in Uptown Davidson City. The rest is up to you! Oh! But it might help if you looked good naked! Just saying! xD
Character Name: (What do you call yourself?)
Nicknames: (What do other people call you?)
Age: (You know the rules!)
Gender: (Oh, what? You don't think this can happen to guys, too?)
Appearance: (What do people see? Not just physically, but your image as well!)
Biography: (Your character's self-image. This can be your history, but also can contain parts of your personality you don't let others see.)
Relationships: (This is important. Player interactions are your own thing, but I need at least 3 NPCs from everyone. Be as descriptive as you want, add as many as you like! Or, just a name and a roll in each space below will work.)
-NPC Superior: (Someone you want to impress, for whatever reason. Employers, Mentors, Role-models, Crushes, etc.)
-NPC Benevolent: (Someone that you trust to have your best interests in mind. Friends, Admirers, Siblings, Doctors, etc.)
-NPC It's Complicated: (Someone you don't have a good relationship with. Ex's, Rivals, Moral Authorities, Unwanted Admirers, Friends You're Fighting With, etc.)
Sexuality: (What gets your character going? Please list or link to hard offs and so forth.)
Anything else: (Whatever else you want to add!)
Part 3: Jinxed
I'm going to attempt to stage the scenes so they have a rapid wind-up. Meaning, by turn two or three, SOMEONE is going to be jinxed. Meaning, of course, that the supernatural bad luck going around has targeted them. When this happens, I'll inform you of your status. Once you are Jinxed, every post you make has to include at least one piece of your clothing suffering a compromising malfunction. There is no limit on what can happen, and you decide the manner in which your unfortunate strip takes place. The more creative, the better. The only thing I ask is, well, remember the theme. Exhibition, humiliation, that kind of thing. A building fire can torch your clothes to nothing, for example! Okay, but the everyone's going to be looking at the fire when that happens, and there's a justifiable reason why you're like that. Just a for-instance.
The Jinx will last until I tell you it stops, or until the scene ends.
I'm sure you have a few questions!
-If my character winds up totally naked, but then gets MORE clothes, does the jinx still affect them?
Good Question! Try it and find out!
-That was hella vague! Is there a way to cheat the jinx?
-Is this an equal opportunity jinx? Will this happen to guys?
It certainly can! Any character is a potential target. It will depend on the motive of whoever is actually causing the jinx to happen.
-Can more than one person be jinxed at a single time?
Certainly! It won't happen at first, but it's a possibility!
-So, if we find the person doing it, we find the method! And after that, we can't be jinxed?
Good question! Try it and find out!
-But if we do find the thing, we can jinx anybody?
Absolutely! Once you figure out how to do it, you can jinx everybody, for all I care! xD
-Does the game end, if we get the thing?
Not really. The power shifts hands, is all. And trust me, I can shift it back, if I have to! ^_^
-What about non-consent?
Well, the theme is non-consensual. If you mean non-consensual sex, that's up to the writers! All I ask is that everyone be respectful! Although, if non-con bothers you, this might not be your cup of tea.
-What about sex?
You know, considering this is a cheesecake style game, I'm going to say that sex can happen in any thread. Just tag it with a warning.
-What exactly will you be doing, as GM, if the writers are the ones making their own clothes fall off?
Hehehe! Well, I'm doing that so everyone can be as creative as they want! What I'll be doing is setting scenes at various venues, moving pieces around to add additional panic, that kind of thing. Also, if someone does post a little too modestly, I might cause something to, ahem, speed up the process.
-Can we start our own scenes, or make up new places for them to happen at?
Please do! And yes, you can be jinxed during those!
-If we need to, can we specify a scene where jinxing doesn't occur?
Yes. But it would be a small, more personal location. Basically, if you can be horribly humiliated, consider it jinxable.
-Can we be injured?
Ah! Good question! The short answer is no, not seriously. While you are jinxed, your awful luck causes everything you are wearing to find every hazard imaginable. But it strangely seems to protect your body from those same situational injuries. Understand, this is to boost the creative field, rather than limit it. When a character has loose hanging clothing and is operating heavy machinery, well, nudity is the last of their potential problems. In this game, that scenario will just result in humiliation. As opposed to real life, where that's dangerously idiotic.
-Where's this game going?
Exotic Non-Con Small Groups, most likely.
-So, we'll all have to work together to stop the culprit?
Hahahahaa! Oh my goodness, no! Pro-tip, the person who has this ability to jinx you guys is not exactly Carmen Sandiago. I encourage you all to work against one another, so long as it sates your desires to do so!
Let me know if you have anything else!
How does it all sound to you guys?
