    636 KB Magical Girl Roleplaying Anonymous 05/13/08(Tue)17:26 No.1728031  
    Ok, because the last thread that eventually moved to this subject had at least some interest, I'm going to make a fresh thread on the subject.

    I'm willing to try GMing a game centered on magical girls and things of that nature. I can't promise it'd be any good, because I lack experience as a GM, but the only way to get better is to actually do it, right?

    Anyway, as of the last thread, there was no general consensus on what system to use, but I'm considering either Tri-Stat dX, OVA, or something like a modified version of Trigger Discipline. Or we can try making yet another random genre-specific system, but that's probably too much work for too little reward.

    Things that would be included:
    Magical girls, henshin heroes as replacements for the more traditional magical knights, because powered armor and a motorcycle beats a tuxedo and a mask. Also a lot of action, encouragement to be flashy and fancy with attacks, and possibly at least a little focus on everyday life. There will probably be a lesser emphasis on large groups of mooks or slow-moving plots and more emphasis on fights between characters of similar power levels and things like that. I guess I'm just taking cues from Nanoha and running with it.

    I'd noticed it, but wasn't active or otherwise thinking of such things at the time, sorry.
    I'll look into it, but doesn't this just use Tri-Stat rules in the first place?
    Naturally. Although it does get issues if said Dark Magical Girl is an NPC. Because once she joins the heroes, well, the usual could happen.
    Tri-Stat can be found for free online. I recommend using a character generator to actually make characters, though. It's the most rules-intensive system under consideration.

    I also meant people bitching about the GMPC. Because if they start as an NPC, that's what they could become. Not that they'd be any fancier than the rest of the party, though. One alternative is to conspire with someone to run the character, but whatever.

    As for homosexual subtext, why the hell not? The game is a bunhc of (I presume) guys pretending to be teenaged girls with magical powers. Or teenaged and older guys who can transform into armored heroes. Whatever appeals to the players is likely to end up happening.

    I totally didn't notice that pun when I posted. Fuck, I lol'd.

    At present, I'm more worried over what system to use than when and how to run the game. But, for that, I'll likely try for weekends because I'll eventually be working with a professor over the summer. And Friday evenings are out because that's when I play CthulhuTech.

    The reason I want to use a system with very flexible character creation is so I can basically tell players they can make up whatever concept they want, as long as it falls into the very general archetypes of the genre/setting. And they can figure out how to do with within the number of character points or whatever they're allowed to spend.

    I'm not sure how I'd set it up, but I could take the time to find a place to post logs or whatever for those who are interested, if it gets off the ground.

    One option I'd favor is to use a forum, but I think chats are a bit easier if things are done as online analogues to actual roleplaying sessions. Forums tend to lean more toward freeform stuff with little to no rules whatsoever and no real reasons to roll dice. Which can be ok, but I've seen the sort of fail it can devolve into.

    Given I coined the term, of course you could be some sort of Tuxedo Kamen Rider.

    That would probably work. I'm usually awake by noon. I would plan on only running the game for a couple hours for each session. Any thoughts on the system to use?

    Man, if I'm going through with this, I'll need to come up with a basic plot structure and other such things. Probably, I'd spend a session on things like figuring out what all the players are playing and what they want out of the game, because I'm new at GMing and feel that it's better to set things up in ways the players can enjoy them than have them derail a carefully-planned campaign they hate.

    The more we discuss this, the more likely I am to do it. Because some sort of magical girl themed gaming appeals to me; I just didn't necessarily intend to run it as GM. Well, I guess it'll give me a chance to practice running villains.

    I'm not familiar with either of those programs, but I could probably figure them out before game time. Or during. Tri-Stat is pretty involved in character creation (hence my recommendation of a generator program to cover the math) but if you can't stat it, you probably didn't start with enough character points. Last thread, I'd posted stats for a time-hax, knife-throwing maid and a plant youkai who could throw giant energy beams.

    I'm tempted to become an tripfag, at least for this thread, so I can be identified as the idiot planning on running the show. For now, I'll put up my e-mail, so people can contact me if they're interested.

    No problem. I need to fill up my Nanoha folder anyway.

    If it can handle GURPS, it can handle Tri-stat. Similar roll-under mechanics.

    Doing general thinking on what might happen in-game. I might take the same plan I'd take if I started a game of Exalted, and just begin with a sandbox session or two in which the characters are put in the same general area and allowed to meet and otherwise just goof around. Lets the players get a feel for their characters and the system. At least one instance of combat would occur to get used to that.

    Well, I'm running out of stuff to say, unless I get asked any more specific questions. So ,to summarize what's been said so far...

    System: Probably Tri-Stat dX. It's free, relatively involved on character creation so I can guarantee any concept will work (also attributes are purely effects-based, you can explain how they work and look like however you want to), and I'm pretty sure I can boil the mechanics down to a bare minimum and keep them there. Cons are creating a character involves keeping track of enough numbers that I'd recommend a program to help with it.

    Probably, games will be handled on OpenRPG or a similar program, and probably on weekends during the daytime (by my time zone). The first session or two will be more on creating characters and placing them in a sandbox setting; plot will come later.

    Some character archetypes or the like to consider:
    Magical Girl (Cute Witch, Magical warrior, and so on)
    Dark Magical Girl
    Magic Knight/Henshin Hero
    And, it might also be worth considering whether a character is better at certain ranges, or if they're things like a glass cannon or fragile speedster.

    Probably along the lines of Inventor/Artificer type. Something along the lines of him knowing how magic works but is unable to directly control it as a magical girl would. DnD artificer is probably really close to the idea from what i hear, just think of that with a liberal splashing of fighter to keep up with the girls.

    I linked where you can get the rulebook and character generator earlier in the thread. >>1728187

    But, to give a basic rundown:
    Characters are defined by three stats, Body, Mind and Soul. Each one covers very broad categories of actions, as one might guess. The system uses character points for everything, and you need to buy up a character's stats from zero (I might change this). Stats themselves are pretty cheap, though.
    The rest of a character's points goes to giving them attributes, which are things like special attacks, or other advantages as in GURPS. Generally, the higher the rating in an attribute, the better it gets and the more it can do. Some attributes can be further modified to have specific ranges, areas of effect, or numbers of targets. Most attributes can also be given drawbacks to lower their point costs, and it can be very hard to resist at least a little min-maxing in this regard.
    The "dX" comes from the fact that the game intends the use of different base die sizes for the basic rolls, depending on the general power scale of the game. So, it could be anything from a d4 to a d20, I think. I'll probably be setting character power in the d6 to d10 range, which is around 100-200 character points or so, if I remember.

    For the setting, I'd probably set it in something vaguely similar to modern Japan rather than a generic fantasyland. It might be a magical world sort of like Mid-Childa from Nanoha StrikerS, in which case, magic and magical powers are nothing new, or it might be earth, which makes things a little different. Either way, unless a character makes an effort to hide their appearance, there won't be rules to conceal a magical girl's true identity. It's more fun that way.

    I have BESM 3, I think. I personally dislike the inflation of character points the game did, and never really tried making a character or comparing the rules changes. I wouldn't mind hearing how you feel it's better, if you can list any specific points.

    Just to mention a few character ideas I've had for things along this vein (but won't be using if I'm the GM):
    A tekkaman/guyver-style henshin hero who got dragged into a magical girlish setting as a cameo. The sort who occasionally arrives to help other characters out of a really dangerous situation. Has an armored alternate form that can fly and toss out good damage in melee or at range. There's a reason they'd likely get busted down to plot device duty.

    A relatively generic magical girl whose words upon accepting her job were "whatever, I'll do it." An athletic tomboy who does gymnastics and parkour and fights with a pair of katar.

    Personally, i think that char point inflation is a GOOD thing there. Gives you a finer control over the character.

    Making characters is a long, number-crunching affair, but allows you to customize them in a very neat way... and, it's a job you have to do only once, anyway.
    plus, IMHO, roll-high is better than roll-low,anc, compared with BESM 2nd edition, BESM 3 has a more solid combat system. the multiplier stuff and the new "weapon" attribute and its advantages/disadvantages systems is by leaps and bounds better than the old one.

    Still, if we're gonna use BESM 3, the GM should put on some fairly accurate and well-explained benchmarks, or, even better, some templates.

    It's a good show. I'd recommend the first two seasons first. You won't need to be familiar with Nanoha to play, but it is my main influence for the general style and theme for events. More action and single combat, less monster of the week.

    I certainly can. I'll just be typing it up and then copying it over, so it won't be completely perfect, and I'll be leaving out the details about what everything does or how derived values are calculated. I'll see if I have a character statted up who'd be interesting and not full of nested abilities or other complex stuff.

    On tri-stat, I should add I'll likely use the energy points optional rule, as it gives characters another way to recoup a few character points, and having a "mana" reserve that might be necessary to power certain attacks might be a good thing. Alternatively, one can use limited shots and literal metaphysical ammunition).

    I'd love to play in this game. Right now I have BESM 3rd edition in .pdf right now, and it looks like it would serve the game's needs. It even provides a magical girl template, although the final decision is always left up to the GM. You don't get many opportunities to RP a magical girl, so why not give it a go. I'd need to read up on what ever system you decide to use,but I'm more than willing to make the commitment.

Keeps a selection of a few minor artifacts that they had made that replicate some of the basic magic abilities (shield, beam spam, and some body enhancements) .

    In my use in terms like "henshin hero" I'm referring to characters such as Kamen Rider or Tekkaman Blade. Effectively, I'm giving a more over-the-top approach to male characters than what some might think of for Magic Knights. The other usages mentioned are correct, and transformation sequences might be mandatory. Especially if the character is built around using the Alternate Form advantage instead of having their abilities naturally, and not using them when in civilian mode.

    Ok, now that I finished typing and copy/pasting a sample stat block in Tri-Stat dX, I can handle some of the replies from the meantime.

    I have BESM 3rd, but am currently leaning more toward Tri-Stat dX, which is more of BESM 2nd in the way it plays (from what I hear). If we do use BESM 3rd, I'd rather players avoid the templates and the like and build their characters from scratch. It might take longer that way, but it makes the cast more diverse.

    I live in US Central Time, which is GMT-5 hours at the moment. Once I have a set of players and ways to contact them all, I'll work out scheduling to fit time zones.

    As for my roll call, as GM, I'll likely have no specific character, but would be running all the villains and random NPCs. Otherwise, as mentioned earlier: either a Tekkaman clone or a magical girl who specializes in mid- to close-ranged combat and acrobatic ways of getting around. She's gung-ho about her job and enjoys it.

    Well, wooden stakes in general, really. Possibly even wooden weapons. The character isn't exactly balanced for anything, although she does still have some character points floating around. It's an example stat block, though. I forgot to mention, but she started with 40 skill points. And skills are costed at different values, so more useful or important skills tend to cost a character more skill points.
    ...Generic anime cuteness and all that, yeah. Chances are, any advantages or random things everyone would be assumed to have, they'd get for free. Alternatively, if you spend points to be cute, you're even cuter than normal.

    Nanoha completely ignored that ridiculous "You can't tell who I am even though my face is completely visible and I'm just wearing a different costume" thing thank god.

    Also, the primary love interest was The Lancer. Yes. This show is obviously targeted at young, impressionable Japanese schoolgirls. Certainly.

    It may be because i'm jumping between FES and this thread, but would you allow a summoner character in the game? To be honest, I'm at a loss for character concepts at the moment. I'm not all that familiar with BESM, so I'm not all that sure how far the system will stretch when creating something.

    And even that will be odd in my game. Unless the character's Magical Girl (or Guy) outfit includes a mask or otherwise obscures their identity by changes of hair color, etc, people can recognize them just as easily as if they're in their civilian persona. I'd have some focus on non-magical activities unless you players decide you'd rather kick more monster or villain ass.

    As for GMPCs, I'd probably make them no different than anyone else's characters. A friend did this once in W:tA and his character was quite entertaining. If anything, I'd use a GMPC as someone who can be kidnapped, tentacle raped, or otherwise completely screwed over when necessary and I think none of the players would appreciate the extra attention.

    Currently, it's Tri-Stat dX, but BESM 3rd is similar (although point costs are vastly different) so you could use that to get a basic idea. I linked the rules and a character creator early on in the thread.

    I don't see a problem with summoners. It can be done in the system we're using, although rather than summon creatures, you might be better off doing things like in Persona and theming specific attacks/abilities as those from summoned creatures rather than your character.

    You can. I posted with my e-mail a few times earlier in this thread, and could post it or an AIM name if people need to contact me to set things up. I'll need some way to get in touch with all the potential players, that's for sure.

    Well, if you want me to do horrid (and possibly erotic) things to your character, just ask and we can plan it out. As for drawing your characters I do it all the time. visual aids are always nice. I think the system we're using even lets me hand out a few bonus character points for artwork, background information, and so-on.

    Probably, for the time-being, modern day multi-genre. Although some of the others, like modern fantasy or occult/horror might work better.

    Depends on the die size the game uses, if we don't change systems at the last minute. So, probably 3-5 or so. Also, you get an "A" for effort.

    As the GM, I can state that any characters I run are likely to be in their mid to late teens or older. ...which might incidentally make them mentor-types by sheer virtue of age, depending on how the PCs turn out.

    Given the system we're using, no idea is too stupid, unless it's too hard to make with limited character points.

    I'm actually not sure how many players are confirmed or anything. But, e-mail me if you're interested. Because this is my first time GMing anything, I think I'll keep the group small, to around 4-5 players. If more show interest, that's fine, as some might end up with time-zone conflicts they can't get around or otherwise be unable to play.

    Pretty much. Though she's also chained up and being beaten by her older sister. There's another one there as well, but I didn't like it because it was a side view. And she was just fingering herself and not being beaten.
    Also, I was going for Saber. I drew a decent picture of her that I fucked up by colouring, but it's on my PSP, which is dead and has a smashed screen, so blah.

    How many points for this? Though she's far two happy. Needs more Naivity and scared.

    Well, I was being completely honest before on the point values. Players can gain a few bonus points for each of the following: background history, a character story, or a character drawing. I'll be awarding from 1/2 to 1 times the die-size used for each thing in bonus character points, so it'd be 4-8 or 5-10, depending on which die size category gets chosen. The current character point range puts characters more or less in the upper "posthuman" regime (d8) if they're closer to 100 points, or the "superhuman" regime (d10) otherwise. I never did decide on a set point total, and therefore can't give a straight answer on this. So, I guess I'll say it's a superhuman level game with characters at 150 points. They get 40 skill points. I might be nice and fudge thing down a bit and use d8s instead, depending on where most major characters are on the point scale.

    Well, I can let you know about when the game's happening, and I've already been asked by another person to somehow provide logs or summaries for those who might be interested in what goes on but not in playing.

    I haven't seen how their sign-up process is like these days. I'll send you an e-mail in a bit.

    I'm back from dinner. This could work relatively well. Maybe do some sort of semi-retro 1920s feel where things like rapiers and other medieval concepts never went out of style, and modern-day technology is still around, but might be based on magic, or have a different, more stylistic look and feel.

    As for the picture, go for it. I'm an artist myself, so I'll likely draw stuff for the game at some point, if no one else does.

    It's from an Exalted Sourcebook you know.

    I'm interested, though I'm slightly late (ok very late) and I'm in the PST timezone.

    I could try my hand with a Henshin Hero though...

    Well, you can still e-mail me and join the pool of potential players/those interested in the game. The time zone difference might make arrangements difficult, but I plan on waiting until I get anyone who's interested, and start planning a time that everyone can agree upon from there. Knowing my general work schedule would help, as well. I imagine it'll be quite flexible as long as I get my overall goals done, though.

    Your ride is a highly advanced artifact able to channel subrealities. It's main function is to procure mythical weapons for you to use. The weapons themselves backlash at you since they shouldn't exist in a stable form, and if you discover and ask for a weapon too powerful, you might not even be able to wield it.

    Your motorcycle can spit hateful Gae Bolgs and Caladbolgs.

    What program is that, anyhow? It looks... interesting.

    King of Heroes, do you have enough swords?

    I just read through most of that comic, and it's pretty much 60% EarthBound, 30% Generic Fantasy, and 10% Weeaboo.

    So /tg/, since we've got this thread here and nothing to do until we grind out the details with our GM, how about we toss around some character ideas? Assuming you don't just want to play a carbon copy of a Nanoha character or something?

    I'd start... but I really don't have an inspiration right now for some reason.

    I actually had an idea for a character for something like this... I dunno if I'd be able to do it properly online like this, though. The idea's for a boy with a hat that basically has the previous several wearers inside it (Willingly). It gives him some powers on its own, but letting them come out and take over is much more powerful.

    ...Probably been done before, actually, or something close. Eh, I have other ideas too, and like I said, probably won't be able to actually join.

    Quite so. One of the best bits of art to come out of that whole thing.
