I might be interested depending on the plot and players.  It sounds like an interesting way to experiment with gender switching, something I normally avoid.

Do you have any other specifics in mind, like setting or time period or type of storyline, etc.?

I could be interested, too, although do you have any ideas for a plot?

Well, on another thread me and Prefect saw there was an idea for a high school auction type thing. Like the school does one of those charity auctions using students and staff and those who are bought have to do things like go on a date with the buyer or be their servant for a week or something. That could be an interesting idea.

Raises hand too

I'm curious as to any plot for a multiplayer game of that sort though

Well we would need to work it out... perhaps ONE of the students buys a few students. it would have to be fairly small..  right now we have three females and two males... (gender reversed) One more male (played by a female) and i think we have the works of a great game.

I once did an off the wall Teenager's from outer space game (it's as wild as it sounds) where the players were 2nd line members of the Team (most of the main line were HUGE..the players were mainly just big) and they were the 'Last Men on Campus'. It was a spoof of the classic 'trapped in a house slasher film' bit.

The school ubernerd was turning all the other males into cheerleaders because the head cheerleader said she'd 'only date him if he was the last man on campus'. It was  silly game but it was the only 'big group' gender twist I've ever seen done.

This all sounds promising so far.  :-) I have a question on perhaps a sensitive subject; hopefully this won't offend anyone.

Let me say first that I have absolute respect for everyone's right to whatever sexual orientation they are inclined towards.  Having said that, however, I'm wondering how you plan to handle transgender or homosexual players in the game.  Would they be expected to play characters of their normally preferred gender, or the reverse?

I was hoping this might be a game in which all the players are RPing as the opposite of their normal preferred character-gender.  That would be kind of complicated and confusing if some players already normally prefer to gender switch; will they be gender-switching a second time in this game?  It sounded like Beatrice will be playing as a female character, for example, which is obviously fine, but that would be a bit different from what I had assumed.

I hope the question comes across as respectful, because I don't intend otherwise.  I only ask because the answer would have an effect on my interest in the game. 

Thanks for reading.  :-)

If you'd rather I play male, I'm willing to do so.

I suppose it depends what we'll be doing besides cross-playing. Do we have a story in mind?

I don't have that fully figured out... but I think most people should play the gender they don't normally play... but that's not a requirement .

Let me run a quick Idea by...

This story should be about reflection and self discovery, as it will be from a strange perspective.. so going young would probably be best, to help grow in perspective.

Were all leaders chosen from our highschools by whatever chritera the school chose, to have a conference almost a social experment to let people mingle discuss and talk about issues. all from junior or senior classes, and all 16 + . The conferance is being held in a Ski lodge in the mountians of Colorado. The kids arive by bus, the adult supervision on the other hand got stuck in the snow coming from another direction.. soon after, the cabin is also snowed in..
