We have four now which I think is the bare minimum. I was hoping for 6 to 8 girls to share this large dorm-house but 4 is workable, though quite intimate.
Can you all please think about characters and we'll see if anyone else joins - if we start before they do then they can be mysterious transfer students or something.
If you know anyone else who may be interested, please drop them a PM linking them to this thread. Thanks!
It would be good if the girls knew each other already (whether very well or in passing) and in that respect perhaps we could discuss some interweaving of back stories or some such.
Character layout could go something like this:Name:
(in usual Japanese style please list the family name/surname first, then her given name. The players will understand that the second name is her first... er, if that's clear? In Japan its always "Smith Mary" and not "Mary Smith")Age:
(note: between 16 and 18 for first thru third year high school students. You can be 19 if you wish, denoting a girl who stayed back a year to retake graduation exams)Appearance:
(an anime or manga picture would be nice rather than a real life model please)Personality:
(something about what makes her tick and what is obvious on a first encounter - don't go into too many details as I'd like the subtleties to come out over time)Background:
(something about what has made this person who they are and why/how. Again no need for pages of detail, I'd like the game to be the place for the others to learn more about your character).
If you want to have a deeper/longer friendship with another character by all means swap PMs with that player and exchange more character detail that way befitting two people who know each other well.
Note that my character layout sheets always specify body type, measurements, etc. I'd like to avoid those things with this game and deal in personalities more than physical attributes. By all means draw attention to a person if she is exceptionally tall or short, heavy or slender and such but there's no need to measure every inch and weigh every pound. Thanks!
Finally, some more cute inspirational doujins:
"Sketch" by Akihito Yoshitomi link here: http://www.mangatoshokan.com/read/Sketch//
"Even If We're Not Friends" by Morinaga Mikuru link here: http://www.lililicious.net/projectDet.php?id=4
(Lililicious is a great site - it also has tons of cute yuri mangas and more adult ones here: http://www.lililicious.net/projects.php?ctg=10
"Girls Union" by Akiko Morishima link here: http://www.mangaupdates.com/releases.html?search=37815&stype=series
(but you'll need a bit-torrent client to DL that one)
"Girlfriends" (is a huge manga currently 27 chapters, a link to the beginning is here: http://makimaki.110mb.com/main.php?page=10
"Her Temptation" by Chi Ran link here: http://www.lililicious.net/projects.php?ctg=10
(third story down in the second magazine: 'Girl's Asthetics')
While I really like 'Shoujo Sect' it can definitely be classed as the most adult of these with openly pornographic lesbian scenes in every chapter which, while its fun, isn't the main element I'd like in the game.
