In a previous post, I discussed the idea for a Fate/ fan game. I’ve been thinking a little more about it and thought I could post some of my ideas.
Hello everyone. Yesterday I began a series of articles related to BESM/Anime d20 and Witches of St. Sayuri, starting with classes. We’ll continue this topic with the classes that are staying with no real changes (besides cosmetically changing their names) as some as some variants to add more options. The remaining classes are:
For starters the adventurer is one of the most pointless classes in the entire game as its entire purpose to be a blank slate class that can be customized to any player’s desire at the cost of hit points, base attack bonus and combat skills. Getting 5 character points each level to spend on anything doesn’t really make up for the fact that it doesn’t measure up to the other classes (and is even noted by the creators for being weaker!) Why does it exist? It’s used for by two different attributes (Flunkies, Servant) to stat the resulting NPCs created by those attributes. Hence this class has a small, but necessary role.
Gun bunnies have nothing to do with bunnies (either actual rabbits or girls in sexy costumes), but refer to characters specializing in firearms. Why are they called Gun Bunnies? Well if someone does know, please educate me because I have no clue. However the more important question is why am I keeping this class? Simple. This is the modern day world and guns exist (outside of Yurishima). It’s by no stretch of the imagination that someone such as a detective, a mercenary/soldier, or other gun toting persons would find some reason or another to come to Yurishima. The only issue I have with this class comes down to its name so let’s rename it. I feel either Gunner or Marksman would fit better. What do you think?
Hot Rod stays for the same reason as the Gun Bunny though I have an alternate means of keeping them. You’d think some unlucky pilot or sailor would find themselves encountering the island by accident as the island doesn’t appear on their maps or radars. However, a class devoted to operating vehicles can easily represent the sailors who brave the monster infested seas to ferry passengers to and from the island. Simply change all references to cars in the class’s features to ships and bam, you have a workable sailor class! Again, the only real change I would make probably change the name.
Unarmed combat is universal and so is the martial artist. No doubt they are some who come to the island to test their might against the fiercest monsters or learn to mimic the combat styles of monsters. This class is fine as it is and doesn’t need to be changed at all.
Witches have adapted to changing times through different means. Some study the arts of stealth and sabotage, offering their services to the feudal lords of Japan under the name of ninjas. Today, ninjas still exist, living in the shadows of society. One may be sent to the island on a secret mission or trying to discover a lost technique rumored to be hidden somewhere on the island. With a little tweaking here and there, it’s possible for a ninja to be remade into a spy or assassin class.
While the age of the samurai ended long ago in Japan, the art of swordsmanship has survived through today. On a hostile island of monsters, non-witches must find ways to defend themselves. Further more, with changing of fluff and swapping about a feature here and there, other warrior classes can be made such as the knight.
While I find it hard to see a group of costumed heroes performing synchronized poses and combo attacks, it’s not hard the sentai members focus of on team work can easily represent a group of soldiers trained to work fight as an unit. By adding some more combat skills to the list, this class can easily be renamed the commando.
Last, but not least, is the student. On an island with a school devoted for witches, the student class is bound to show up. However, most students will likely be cross-classed with the witch or contractor class as to grant them access to “magic” required to attend a school of witches. If I were to give this class a variant, it would be beef it up and add some combat skills to create a Delinquent class, but other wise not be changed all that much.
That concludes my ideas and plans for player classes. Tomorrow (or whenever I post again), I think I will discuss some of the monsters, their societies and racial traits.
Hello everyone. It’s been a while since I did a L&L post. I’ve been musing the idea of actually running a BESM/anime d20, but I didn’t know what I wanted for a setting and campaign. It dawned to me “why not just use Yurishima?” So thus I began typing up a campaign setting of sorts. In the next few posts, I will dissecting the system and laying out the ground rules, making class variants, etc. Today, let’s start with classes… Continue reading
Hello everyone. It’s been a while since we talked about Vanguard. Well the 4th season of G has started and it takes place about three years after the previous season, putting the heroes in high school. The main character team (Try3) has been broken up as Chrono, Shion and Tokoha goes to three different schools (Tokoha going as far to study abroad in Paris). However a new tournament, the U20 (Under 20) is coming up and each of them is joining for their own reasons. That out of the way, let’s talk about the only character that matters from the those three: Tokoha.
Hay, it’s been a while. I apologize for not posting. I’ve never really been all that good at being social online or IRL. However, I figured I’d make a post to announce that I had entered the (then) current demo for Witches of St. Sayuri the 2016 Yuri Jam. Sadly, as someone pointed out, it was quite buggy and I’m working on fixing and will post an updated demo when I finish the scenarios for chapter 2. For now on, you will find the current demo for this game on the link above.
Since just saying I made a demo for Yuri Jam isn’t exactly all that wordy, I thought I might post thought for other games I had bouncing about my head (some of these might have been posted before).
Love Locked (Name pending)
Short Description: Disgaea with lesbians.
Long Description: One day, the queen of succubi, claiming to be able to seduce any woman she desires, decides to seduce the high priestess of the humans as to prove her charisma. However things horribly wrong when she not only fails to seduce the high priestess, but has her infernal powers sealed away by a holy chastity belt that can only be removed by feelings of true love! To make matters worse, the succubi she once ruled over are now trying to kill her in order to take her position as their ruler! The queen of succubi and the high priestess must join forces to stop the diabolical coup.
The Yuri: Well if you haven’t predicted the queen of succubi and the high priestess falling in love, shame on you. However, the high priestess isn’t the only love interest for our dark seductress. Her majesty’s most loyal vassal proclaims her love her mistress (which is quite unusual for a demon…) and eventually heaven sends down an archangel to kill the queen, but the assailant finds herself too depowered and forced to join the party, slowly falling for the majestic devil.
Yurishima Monsters (Yurimon for short)
Short Description: Demon Master Chris turned SRPG.
Long Description: Professor Sakura believes that the monsters of Yurishima and humans can coexist and to prove her point, she can decided to capture and tame monsters. This isn’t an easy task. After all, the beautiful monster girls she captures wind up wanting to
“mate” with her.
The Yuri: I don’t think I really need to explain this. Ultimately, the game will have dating sim elements where you can choose to pursue one or many of the monsters you recruit.
Fate/Mimi (Fate/ franchise fan game)
Short Description: Mimi Chronicles the Game.
Long Description: One morning, Mimi wakes up to find an unusual mark on the back of her hand. Before she knows it, she is thrust into an underground holy grail war hosted by a mysterious organization known only as the “Round Table”. Can Mimi and her servant, Caster, survive long enough to discover the secret about the new holy grail?
The Yuri: Being a Fate/ fan game based around one of the best characters from Prisma Illya, Mimi will naturally ship any two girls she sees (it doesn’t help her servant, a certain Greek poet, enables her ever so much), however I was thinking of introducing a new character to serve as a love interest to her. As to whether Illya & Mimi or Rin & Luvia will be involved I haven’t fully decided.
Illegal Witch Diana Deathly
Short Description: (insert dark magical girl anime here) the SRPG.
Long Description: The protagonist, Diana, leads an ordinary and deathly boring life as a mundane girl. This all changes when she encounters a beautiful girl being attacked monsters one fateful night. Desperate to save the girl, she makes a contract with an all too adorable animal mascot, ignoring the girl’s warnings not too. Only after she signs the contract does she realize the mascot is in fact a demon and she too has become one of its tools to be used as it sees fit. To make matters worse, the monsters were summoned by real witches trying to destroy the demon before it could ensnare any more unfortunate souls and destroying those foolish enough to make a contract with it. Now Diana and her new comrade must fight for their lives while serving the whims of a wicked demon.
The Yuri: Well obviously, Diana and the girl she tried to save will fall in love.
Chainmail Bikini/Bikini Quest
Short Description: Bikini Warriors the Game.
Long Description: The kingdom of Zexi is being invaded by the Devil Queen. The Queen of Zexi summons Hero and charges her with the task of defeating the Devil Queen and bringing peace the kingdom. She gathers beautiful and scantily clad allies (who seem to be interested in getting to know her more…personally) and sets out on her holy quest.
The Yuri: If you’ve seen Bikini Warriors, just use your imagination.
Love is War
Short Description: Iono-sama Fanatics meets Fire Emblem
Long Description: The queen of Liland holds the most fierce reputation as the Queen of Conquerors as there’s not a maidens heart she work her way into. Unfortunately, her seductive ways has caused the men of her kingdom to rebel, having no women to marry as they are all in her harem. After quelling the rebellion, the queen decides to expand her horizons to the neighboring kingdoms. Unfortunately, these respective kingdoms aren’t willing to surrender their women without a fight. Some are even willing to preemptively attack Liland to stop her from invading their nation!
The Yuri: If you weren’t paying attention, queen with lesbian harem. Enough said.
Magical Girl Fairytale
Short Description: What if the heroines of classical fairytales were magical girls?
Long Description: Cinderella is a girl with a pure heart and because of this is chosen by the Fairy Godmother to her champion against the evil queen of Grim. However, she won’t be on her own as she will gather allies from throughout the kingdom.
The Yuri: I was initially thinking of having Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood enter a possible two-girl romantic friendship (that could grow into a genuine romance), but it’s also possible for Cinderella to befriend/marry any of the fairytale heroines, such as Goldie Locks, Snow White, etc., etc. …
Kiss of the Carmilla
Short Description: What if Carmilla (somehow) survived her tragic fate at the end of her novel and now lives in the modern day?
Long Description: There is a beautiful woman preys upon the sweet and innocent sisters of a certain nunnery, charming them into acts of “debauchery”. Rumor states that she hasn’t aged in many years and may not even be alive. Occasionally the dark seductress mourns a long forgotten love, a girl named Laura. However, she broods for there are others who dare prey upon her game and she can’t possibly forgive that!
The Yuri: The game would balance the wacky and sexy adventures of Carmilla as well as have her recall one girl who got away.
That’s about it for now. I will post when I either get chaper 2 for Witches done or have more ideas.
Touken Ranbu is essentially the spear counter part to KanColle. I know of this series thanks to Cardfight! Vanguard, that released a set based on this series (we’re now getting a second set and even a trial deck based on Touken Ranbu), so I figured I’d cover the anime adaption.
Hello everyone. It’s been forever since I’ve posted about my for fan made card game Animegeddon. To keep a long story, about a year ago I lost my nth laptop ever and had to restart the game from scratch (this however, I’m taking full advantage of cloud storage). I’ve completed a few sets:
Madoka Magica (both the anime series and the third movie, might go back for the first two movies).
Little Witch Academia (both OVAs and will going back when more material is present)
Lagrange: The Flower of Rin-ne (both seasons)
Tenchi Muyo: War on Geminar (currently test playing)
Sansha Sanyou (Did this set over the course of last week to kill time before I could afford to get more ink; will start test playing hopefully soon)
Unfortunately, the unopened cartridge of black ink I found lying about my room expired two years ago and I have to wait patiently until I can afford a new cartridge. In that time I figured I do some write ups of the most anime of this season, starting with Ange Vierge.
