ETU: Degrees of Erotic Horror - Interest Check.
« on: December 13, 2017, 10:14:37 AM »


Office of the Dean
1 Raven’s Loop
Pinebox, TX


Dear Student,
Welcome, and congratulations on your acceptance as an incoming Freshman student at East Texas University. I would like to take this opportunity to direct you to information that will make your transition to ETU as smooth as possible.

First, I would like to remind you that all Freshmen and Sophomores are required to live in on-campus housing. This both ensures your safety and helps you build friendships that will undoubtedly last a lifetime. Go to FightingRavens.com to fill out your dorm application and submit your deposit.

Next, I would like to remind you that Freshman orientation, which we call Sweat Lodge, coincides with dorm check-in on the third weekend in August. Please plan to attend one of the sessions on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday evening. At Sweat Lodge you’ll learn about the importance of campus safety, our university traditions and fight song, the Raven’s Honor Code, and advice from Seniors. The Saturday night Sweat Lodge ends with free pizza and a show by local rockers A Jury of Robots.

Again, let me congratulate you on your first step into a larger world. College is what you make of it, and an acceptance to ETU is a great start!

                                              Go Ravens!
                                East Texas University President James Nelson


Welcome to East Texas University: Class of 2021!

This game is a Savage Worlds game using the ETU setting book(s). It will follow the journey of a group of students from Freshman Year though Graduation. During their time at ETU they will need to balance their time between Academics, their social/sex life and of course becoming involved in the various supernatural occurrences that seem to plague the campus and the surrounding area. Think Scooby Doo mixed with Buffy, plus a slice of college life. E being E I imagine a Revenge of The Nerds/American Pie/Animal House vibe as well.

GAME:
Section the Game will be placed in and whether it is a system game or not.
    - While the focus will be on the non-erotic plot progression, there will be various non-humans that may or may not interact sexually with humans. It will probably go under NC-E, just to be safe.
     - The game will be run using the Savage Worlds game system and more Specifically the ETU setting.

Who is the RP open to? (Gender, Sexuality, etc..?)
     - Straight, Bi, Gay Male or Females.

Short Summary of Player Roles and General Story/Plot.
     - Players will be playing incoming Freshman. The Story will follow their adventures at ETU and surrounding areas until they graduate.

Setting.
    - East Texas University (ETU). A fictional college in Texas near the fictional town of Pinewood.

Plot Outline.
     - The story will follow the players as they try to unravel the paranormal/supernatural activity that abounds at ETU.

Character creation info/guidelines if any.
    - Character creation should be done as per standard Savage Worlds and the custom creation rules from the ETU setting books. If you do not have access to the books contact me and we will see what we can do. If interested please send me a PM or post here, in the Form of a college application letter as follows:

DATE:
STUDENT NAME:
DOB: (Must be at least 17 years old).
HOME ADDRESS:
HIGH SCHOOL NAME:
HIGH SCHOOL GPA:
DESIRED MAJOR(S):
DESIRED MINOR(S):
REASON FOR CHOOSING EAST TEXAS UNIVERSITY:
PHOTO:
SEXUAL ORIENTATION(s):
Kinks:
Offs:


In addition to the Application Letter please provide a brief background/concept for your character. This game will not be first come first serve. I will take 4-6 people initially for the Class of 2021.

GAME MASTER:
Required Resources (If any) (If a system game - What books(ver.) or links to information needed such as an online guide or wiki?)
      - If you have access to the Savage Worlds Core Rules and the ETU Setting book the you have everything you need. I can help anyone who needs help in finding the books. Just PM me.

Game Pacing.
    - I will update the game with three days of the last player post or once a week whichever comes first. If you cannot commit to once a week posting then this may not be the game for you. Of course stuff happens, but in general posting once a week at a minimum should not be too difficult.

How much sexual activity is likely to occur or expected, if any?
     -  The main focus will be on the supernatural/paranormal plot. But this is E and the characters are college students so some sexual content is expected. Erotic scenes that last more than a few posts will be moved to a 1vs1 thread and linked in the first post. Anyone involved in such a scene will still be required to post in the story thread if the character would be active in the thread.

Whether tagging will be used or not.
       - I don't think tagging will be needed, but can be added/used if it becomes an issue.

Game Master Info / GM(s) Participation Level (If/where applicable)
Will there be a Co-GM?
    - at this point I do not plan on using a Co-GM.

How guided will the play be(sandbox, directed etc)?
   - directed with leeway for the players to explore and go off the rails a bit.

What extent will players be allowed to create/use environment or setting details?
     - The setting is already pretty detailed, but I will use any hooks or ideas from a characters background that I think add to the setting. Although there are a few set NPCS, players are free to add NPCs, locations, etc. to the setting.

How NPC's will be handled. (If any) - (By GM and/or players, and what expectations)
     - Players may introduce NPCs and may have them perform minor tasks. Anything major wil will be handled by the GM.

How active will the GM be?
        - I will check on the game daily as much as possible and try to answer any questions that arise within one day.

Will there be an OOC thread? (expectations of thread usage)
    - There will be an OOC thread for all out of character discussion. I'd like to keep the flirting, messing around and the like to a minimum however.

How to contact/approach GM with questions? (use OOC thread, direct PM, etc...)
      - OOC or PM are both acceptable ways of contacting the GM.

How will decisions be resolved?
       - rolls will be done via the site dice roller.
       - The GM will use a random card generator when drawing a card is required.
       - No rules lawyers. The GM has the final say on any rules questions.

Will PvP be allowed (if applicable)?
No PvP.

Additional:

    - Please respect other player's offs.

Discuss how new players will be brought into the game (if the game is already running.)
     - If we lose a player I will try and find a new player to replace them. We have a college full of potential characters so it should be pretty easy to add a new player.
      - If things go well and there is enough interest I may add a second group of Freshmen after the first group become Sophomores.

*NOTE* To clarify any confusion . You are part of the Class of 2021 - which is the year you will graduate. The game begins in January of 2018 (game time)

I am still interested in running this is anyone is interested. If you have never played Savage Worlds it is a very simple and fun game system to learn and use. And ETU is a very fun and interesting game setting.

APPLICATION FOR FULL-TIME STUDENT STATUS AT EAST TEXAS UNIVERSITY
DATE: 11/3/2017
APPLICATION TERM (2018): [X]FALL 2018  [ ]SPRING 2019  [ ]SUMMER 2019
STUDENT NAME: Francine DuBois
DOB: (Must be at least 17 years old). 5/3/2001
HOME ADDRESS: XXXX Velma St., Metairie, LA
HIGH SCHOOL: E. Jefferson HS, Metairie
HIGH SCHOOL GPA: 3.7
DESIRED MAJOR(S): Journalism
DESIRED MINOR(S): Commercial and Advertising Art
REASON FOR CHOOSING EAST TEXAS UNIVERSITY: I was inspired by an art exhibition from some ETU graduate students when my parents and I visited Texas on vacation when I was a child.  I will never forget the experience, and it inspired me to pursue my dream of combining art and videography with writing and responsible reporting-- skills that are essential in the rapidly changing world of modern journalism, where I believe that ETU is breaking new ground every day. 

Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide
Real reason for choosing ETU:  It's far enough from home to escape the grip of her parents (one alcoholic, one bipolar).  Still, she's afraid to go any farther than East Texas because she'd feel tremendously guilty if something bad happened to them and she couldn't get home. 
Sexual Orientation: From experience: Straight, but she's aware of unexplored curiosity.  Her sexuality's still emerging from an oppressive home life; she's actually bisexual.
Kinks: She has no idea.  If we could fast-forward and the experiences play out right, she could get off on consensual bondage, threesomes, rough play,
Offs: As a writer for me-- Scat, toiletplay-- watersports ok.
Ons: As a writer for me-- some exhibition, voyeurism, group, exploration, seduction, compulsion, occult-influence, light bondage

I need to glance through the book again but would be interested.  A quick write-up. 


DATE: 12/5/2017
STUDENT NAME: Elisabeth Masterson
DOB: December 31, 2000
HOME ADDRESS: 1234 5th Ave. Great Falls. Montana
HIGH SCHOOL NAME: Russell High School
HIGH SCHOOL GPA: 3.97
DESIRED MAJOR(S): Computer Science
DESIRED MINOR(S): Mathematics
REASON FOR CHOOSING EAST TEXAS UNIVERSITY: The small town atmosphere.  I heard it has a good computer science program.  I need to get out of Montana but don't want to move to the big city yet...
PHOTO:
SEXUAL ORIENTATION(s): Straight
Kinks: She's probably rather prudish/conservative.  I'm open to most anything with a preference towards non-con.
Offs: For me: Scat.  Mutilation.

A bit of a nerd and a bit of a tomboy, Elisabeth spent most of her childhood online.  She never made many local friends, and those she did were mostly into similar things to herself.  Videogames, Dungeons and Dragons, and so on.  She did enjoy the wild nature of Montana while at the same time despising the isolation and conservative country attitudes.  Still, she's a bit worried about moving to such a big Campus, let alone ever moving to the big city.

Thank you--

I've been around for a bit, just... not consistently :)  I have the book and will sort out a character sheet in due time.  Once she sheet is up, I'll add it and PM.  I think the concept sounds great-- I love the setting and, honestly, not knowing precisely what's in store is pretty exciting.

Thanks for the opportunity!

I've got a fair amount of Savage Worlds experience, and have heard of ETU but not played it.  I have the Explorer Ed. rules but not the ETU book.

Some ideas: 

A tough gearhead girl, street racer with a fast car, aspiring race car driver or engineer.  Downside is there might not be a lot of car chases in a horror game.

An earth mother type... neo-hippie, self-taught wiccan, gentle and eccentric, bit spacy.  Smarter and more together than she appears.  Botany, maybe.

A foreign student from Japan!  One who stood out too much there, couldn't get into a Japanese university and came to study in America, where she's considered staid and conservative.  Might be a martial artist or computer/tech specialist to fit in with teen movie stereotypes, or something stranger.

Elisabeth looks good.

@TFCommando: All three options could work. while car chases aren't very common in most ETU games, there are rules for vehicle glitches and one of them is the car being posssesed aka "Christine", so I'm sure I could make idea one fit, with s bit of work. For the Beo-Hippie, there are some edges and stuff they could take that would fit the character well and ETU would probably be a good choice for that type of person. The Japanese student is also doable and since I've live here in Japan most of my adult life I can probably add some insight if needed.

For now, I'm going forward with the neo-hippie girl, since that's the sort of character that would only work in a few sorts of games, while I do tough butt-kickers more often.  I'm seeing her as born and raised in Berkley (perhaps by straight-laced tech parents) who came to ETU to go somewhere outside the urban sprawl of the bay area, with a lot of trees.  She has access too (and might start growing) fantastic weed.  Has the whole range of new-age beliefs, maybe a delusion about them actually working.  Auras, chakra, tantric sex, crystals, the works.  Sexually and emotionally open, but not the sort to go cruising for action, just offer when she meets someone who appeals.  And definitely a naked roommate! :)  Visually, a white girl with red dreadlocks.

DATE: 11/18/2017
STUDENT NAME: Wrenn Lebowitz
DOB: March 9, 1999
HOME ADDRESS: 6042 Fall Creek Rd, McCormick’s Ferry, TX  75568
HIGH SCHOOL NAME: Niles McCormick Memorial High School
HIGH SCHOOL GPA: 3.50
DESIRED MAJOR(S): Environmental Studies
DESIRED MINOR(S): None
REASON FOR CHOOSING EAST TEXAS UNIVERSITY: Wrenn’s intention was to leave Texas behind and spread her wings.  As a liberal in a small Texas town she never really fit in as a teenager.  She had dreams of going to college in California or maybe New York, but it was nearby East Texas University that offered her a small scholarship and having an interest in environmental studies she had always been fascinated with the Big Thicket and specifically the area called the Burn.  Her family didn’t have a lot of money and ETU did have a surprisingly well rate Environmental Studies program so Wrenn has put off her dreams of the coast for now to study environmental impacts closer to home.

SEXUAL ORIENTATION(s): Lesbian

Kinks: Wrenn is a pretty outgoing person in general but she is not experienced in intimacy.  She wants to be and is certainly open to trying new things.  As long as serious pain is not involved she would probably be okay with whatever if the right person approached her.

Offs: For me: Scat.  Mutilation. Non-Con.

Personality:  Wrenn is a bit of a causehead.  She is certainly an activist for LGBTQ rights and the environment but any good cause can gather her attention and enthusiasm.  Wrenn is generally friendly and outgoing, so much so that some people might find her annoying.  She is unabashedly a nerd and played roleplaying games with a small group of high school friends and hopes to find a group at ETU that she can continue to play with.  Wrenn works at the local coffee shop as a barista to help pay for school and to have a little spending cash.
Growing up in the area, Wrenn is familiar with some of the folklore of the area and has an interest in all of the spooky stories.  She loves camping and being outside and can often be found studying under one of the trees on campus when the weather nice and the ants aren’t biting.

Wrenn’s home town: McCormick’s Ferry - This historic site was named for an early Texas settler named Niles McCormick whose family ran a ferry across the Bobcat Bayou. In 1832 the entire McCormick family died in a flood, though their bodies were never recovered. Locals claim that passersby can hear the family call out for help late some nights. Today this spot is a popular fishing and swimming area and there are scattered homes along the bayou.

Character Sheet
Student Rank: Freshman
Major: Environmental Studies
Academics: 0
Charisma: 0
Pace: 6
Parry: 4
Toughness: 5

Extra Curricular Activities
Part Time Job (Barista) - The character has a paying, part time job. This puts extra money in her pocket for the semester, but comes with the responsibility to actually show up for work during appropriate hours. How strenuous of a time commitment determines the amount paid. An easy job provides an extra $50.
Student Organization (LGTBQ Club) - This activity requires a Major Skill at d6+. The hero belongs to a student organization. She gains a +1 bonus with one skill this semester. The only excluded skill is Ritualism. (+1 Streetwise)

Attributes:
Agility: d6
Smarts: d6
Spirit: d8
Strength: d6
Vigor: d6
 
Skills:
Boating: d6
Fighting: d4
Healing: d4
Investigation: d6
Knowledge (Environmental Studies): d6
Notice: d8
Streetwise: d6 (d8 Edge)
Survival: d6

Edges and Hindrances:
Multitasker (Edge) - This character excels at scheduling her time and interests. Each semester, she may choose two Extracurricular Activities instead of one, gaining the benefits and any drawbacks of both.

Brave (Edge) - Those with this Edge have learned to master their fear. Your hero adds +2 to Fear tests

Bad Eyes (Minor) - Your hero’s eyes just aren’t what they used to be. With glasses, there’s no penalty and the Hindrance is only Minor. Should she lose her glasses (generally a 50% chance when she’s wounded, or no chance with a “nerd-strap”), she suffers a –2 penalty to any Trait roll made to shoot or Notice something more than 5” (10 yards) distant.

Pacifist (Minor) - Your hero absolutely despises violence. Minor pacifism means he only fights when given no other choice, and never allows the killing of prisoners or other defenseless victims.

Heroic (Major) - This noble soul never says no to a person in need. She doesn’t have to be happy about it, but she always comes to the rescue of those she feels can’t help themselves. She’s the first one to run into a burning building, usually agrees to hunt monsters for little or no pay, and is generally a pushover for a sob story.

Gear:
$390
Surface Pro laptop
Campus dining hall meal plan.
iPhone
Pepper Spray
Taser (Touch attack version)
Used Pickup Truck (Temperamental: The vehicle seems to have an affinity with its owner. Other drivers suffer a –4 penalty when driving it.)

A quick sheet, probably needs some work as it has been awhile since I did anything with the system/setting.  Is content from the Horror Companion book allowed?  Specifically the minor hindrance Screamer (any time they fail a fear test they must scream at the top of their lungs), or Victim (when encountering a hostile threat, if there is not a reason for them to go after someone else, they will default to the character)

Elisabeth Masterson was born and raised in the great state of Montana.  Her parents settled in Great Falls in the hopes of getting away from the hectic city life.  Her father worked in IT for an agricultural company, her mother as a veterinary assistant.  The fifth of five children, Elisabeth was somewhat the forgotten runt of the litter.  Her family was never poor, but she lived on hand-me-downs and gently used clothes, cars, and furniture. 

A bit shy, Elisabeth spent much of her time in the basement on the supposedly shared computer.  She claimed it to the point that her parents eventually bought her a high-end model for Christmas, if only so they could occasionally check their email or do taxes.  Her only real ‘outdoor’ activity, other than when she was dragged out to look at cows or mountains, was to swim. 

She fell in with the RPG and MtG community while waiting to be picked up after a swim meet.  A nearby hobby store, a neat look booking, and she was hooked.  By the time she graduated Elisabeth had a small group of friends distilled from the larger, more interesting, local nerd community. 

Elisabeth is straight, as far as she has ever considered, and rather prudish and conservative.  She isn’t a virgin, but neither has she ever had what she would consider a proper boyfriend.  She is attractive, a fact that she likes to pretend not to know but secretly thrives on.

I will try and take a look at the stuff from the horror guide - if I can find a copy. I don't see it being a problem as it fits the setting. I'm actually a bit surprised they weren't used with ETU.

We are definitely lacking in the male character department, but I'm not worried about that. No need to change your character unless you want to.

I will try to get an OOC and Character Sheet thread in place in the next day or two.

If I'm not too late, I've got a couple of character ideas:

DATE: 3/8/2017
STUDENT NAME: Diana Mei Ono
DOB: 5/24/1999
HOME ADDRESS: 313 Kendal Road, Windermere, Seattle
HIGH SCHOOL NAME: Greenville Academy, Laurelhurst, Seattle
HIGH SCHOOL GPA: 4.0
DESIRED MAJOR(S): Business
DESIRED MINOR(S): TBD
REASON FOR CHOOSING EAST TEXAS UNIVERSITY: It's away from my parents, and they're not friends with any alumni.
PHOTO: (Larger size)
SEXUAL ORIENTATION(s): Heterosexual (though that's possibly just her assumption...)

Diana Ono is the daughter of wealthy parents (they make the thing that drills the hole that holds the spring that...). She had the sort of upbringing and schooling that money could buy, but her life was politely but firmly controlled by her parents. A slight rebellious streak began to surface in her teens, and she chose ETU as a way of finding some independence: her parents had no influence there, and didn't even know any of its alumni. She plans to make full use of the license this gives her; her parents may have other ideas.

OOC: Diana is very attractive and academic, with good investigatory skills, but not so great at physical activities.

DATE: 28/1/2017 1/28/2017
STUDENT NAME: Imogen Cook
DOB: 9 April 1999
HOME ADDRESS: 37 Lavender Gardens, Becketts Cross, Hertfordshire, UK
HIGH SCHOOL NAME: Beckett's Cross Grammar School, Hertfordshire, UK
HIGH SCHOOL GPA: A-levels in Computer Science (grade B), Mathematics (grade C), and Physics (grade C)
DESIRED MAJOR(S): Computer Science
DESIRED MINOR(S): TBD
REASON FOR CHOOSING EAST TEXAS UNIVERSITY: My mother, April Adams (now Cook), is an alumni.
PHOTO: (Larger size)
SEXUAL ORIENTATION(s): Heterosexual, mostly, though she's starting to wonder...

Imogen grew up in the UK, the child of a moderately well-off but not truly rich family. Although her father was British, her mother was American; they'd met when her mother was visiting the UK.
 
Imogen was an athletic kid. She didn't think of herself as a tomboy, but she was one of the best runners in her school, and a good swimmer. Academically, she developed an interest in computers beyond merely using them. She matured emotionally early, and could generally be counted on to be 'the sensible one' (mostly, though she had her impulsive moments); she scoffs at the idea of the supernatural.

Imogen got good enough grades to go on to further education in Britain, but her mother being an alumni of ETU opened up the possibility of studying abroad. That appealed to Imogen, so she applied.

OOC: Imogen is something of a jock, being a good runner and a fairly good swimmer.

Me
Kinks: 'Embarrassment play' (wardrobe malfunctions, itching, tickling, mild spanking, desperation)
Offs: Rape, scat, bestiality
(Generally, see my Ons & Offs.)

Still here, just not usually as active during the week. I should have all of the relevant threads up sometime over the weekend.

I've had a pretty busy couple of days. I am ready to get things rolling, but I'm not quite sure what all we will need or how to set things up. I don't have much experience with group system games here on E. If any of you have experience with this sort of game I'd love to hear your suggestions on how to organize things.

Here are the threads I think we will need:

OOC
Character Sheets
Main Story Threads
Dorm threads - still need to assign everyone to a dorm.
side threads as needed to allow for more in depth role playing while keeping the story threads moving forward.

The big question is do the PCs start knowing each other, and how?  They could all be strangers thrown together by a strange event they have to survive, or met on the first day of school at the dorm orientation party (before the survival thing starts).  Or they're already a group of friends... or every PC has a connection to one other PC and we work that out in advance.

I prefer the last one or two.  It's hard to get momentum in a game going if everyone is a stranger to each other and has no reason to talk to each other.

Depends on if we are doing Degrees of Horror plot point or not.

I plan on doing the Degrees of Horror Plot with a mix of other stuff thrown in. The plot point makes it fairly easy to get the players together - starts off with a bang at student orientation, but if players want to know one another or be connected ahead of time it definitely wouldn't be a bad thing. Outside of the GM saying "Oh hey remember how you all worked together to stop that dead guy from stealing all the Freshmen's lunch money? Well now I need you all to do something else for me," there is really no baked in incentives for the group to stay together. Other than the OOC knowledge that the whole game assumes you all will be friends or at least be willing to work together to solve mysteries.

If the PCs come together as a group because of their first brush with supernatural horror, that can be a reason to stay apart afterwards... they'd just be a reminder of the trauma they went through.
