Unlucky halfling comedy (?)
« on: April 25, 2010, 01:52:22 AM »
I am tired of being in the GM/DM/whatever you want to call it position.

Creatively, it's a drain (even in freeform non-system games) to set up the environment and NPC characters and alllll that jazz. For the moment I am tired of this role, and would like to be Alice, reacting to everything in Wonderland that is thrown at her.

For the longest time, I have had an idea in my head that won't go away and I've not yet properly explored it enough.

A halfling, in the traditional fantasy sense, is unlucky.

Whether by gypsy-esque curse or divine retribution/humor... she has routinely found herself the butt of life's jokes. And these jokes are too often bawdy and lewd. Suppose she falls through a trap door, and lands upon a very phallic object under her skirt. Or the halfling sneaks into a monster's lair during its' mating season and naturally sets off a cacophony of alarms. Maybe she just doesn't have the money to pay an adventurer to escort her along the road and tries to bribe him, only to find he's gay and instead wants her to hunt down and inebriate some handsome lad.

It is a comedy, afterall.

So, I would like to subvert both the usual tropes of fantasy settings AND erotica... Heck, I think even Elliquiy's been around long enough that it has its' own tropes that we can subvert. Some could be played straight, however... like the previous mentioned monster mating season situation. However, this particular halfling has been unlucky for a very long time, and sexual humiliation and degradation are nothing new. While expected, the usual horror of rape gets... a little old after awhile. This halfling shall bear these trials with, at its' worst, annoyance and frustration. Hell, it wouldn't be too far off to imagine her trying to wrestle with a tentacle monster because it can't seem to find the right hole and keeps poking at her belly button. It is a comedy, afterall.

Thus I leave the exact genre up to the 'GM' in this case. A quick perusal through my ons/offs will show that I'm quite... open-minded. :P

There's a sample of what I had in mind here although, by all means, feel free to depart from the concept. Own it. :P
