School Days RPG - Step 1 - The Plot

I have a close friend I'm working with concerning the items, armor, weaponry, and background stuff.  However we're still completely unsure of a plot.  Now in the previous journal there were a few good suggestions.  There were also some questions about wither I'd use the plots from the "Haunted Mansion Fun" or "Snowed In" games.  There were also concerns about how characters from the School Days canon would even fit in an RPG situations considering that they don't have any skills that would fit in a traditional RPG.  Well those are all valid questions and I plan on addressing those.

Here is what I have in mind overall for an RPG based in the School Days canon.  For everyone who has noticed, yes, a good chunk of the inspiration for this game comes from the SNES game "Earthbound."  As I said in an earlier post on another forum, I absolutely love the School Days universe for it's cuteness, silliness, and it's ability to get away with anything.  The same thing goes with Earthbound, and I just feel the two universes just go together like Peanut Butter and Chocolate.  Originally I was just using the School Days characters as placeholders to help build an original RPG but it seems people are really on board with the idea.

I was thinking of using the plots form "Haunted Mansion Fun" and "Snowed In" but because of their size they would more feel like small plots or side quests to an overall larger adventure.  I don't want to make the plot line too big though.  If anything the game itself should take place within the city limits of Pouncefield and have lots of little places to explore like the school, a beach, arcade, mall, nature trail, mountain trails, all of which could contain adventures and enemies that can advance the overall plot.

Edna is going to be the main characters and be joined eventually by Pokeinfo, Edward, and Cynthia in that order.  There may be some more characters along the way but they would most likely just be guest stars to just serve the purpose of the plot.  The major concern for the plot right now is just trying to figure out what the overall goal and story for the game should be such as determining the "Big Bad" and what the hero's need to collect in order to save the town.

I don't really mind cliche ideas that much, just as long as they're not super cliche or ripped from another game entirely.  Keep in mind that the original Earthbound was an affectionate parody of games like "Dragon Quest".  Anyway I'm open to any ideas that you may have on the plot subject and I'm willing to answer any other questions you may have as well.  Hope to hear from you soon.  ^v^

Are you planning you have pornographic material in this game considering how it makes up most of the real School Days plot?

I would be fine with a normal RPG like game if the answer is no.

I forgot to mention that in the journal.  I'm still undecided about putting sexual situations in the game.  Though there will be a certain level of naughtiness it, especially when it comes to the items the characters can use and wear.

I really hope there'll be explicit naughty content in the game, even if it is mostly at the end and more of a reward than anything. School Days without cute yiffyness just doesn't seem complete!

Well yiff is a central plot point of School Days after all.

Sounds like we have a brainstorming session about to start here! Maybe even a writing contest....

There really is a pretty sizeable School Days fanbase out there. There's a lot of good authors coming up with new stories for the SD universe, usually involving new charactors of their own trying to find their way through life as a School Days student.. I had an idea though that might be a whole lot of fun... One of School Days core elements is the sexual freedom that exists everywhere. The main basic rule is that you don't force anyone to do anything they don't wan't to do, but otherwise they're free to do anything they want to do with each other. So.... what would happen if all that suddenly changed?....


School Days: Revolution A new school superintendant comes to power with the backing of right wing liberal moralist censorship fanatics, and in three short days passes all sorts of new edicts that tightly control student behavior, dress code, and classroom studies. No longer will there be biology studies or PE, no more art class or band or singing. Only fractions, long division, rigorous english studies and tedious tests are allowed in the classrooms. The gym is converted to a massive "lecture" (read brainwashing) hall where student's are taught to be mindless drones of the system. Fun is outlawed.

Not only is the school affected, but the whole town. Everywhere the same repression spreads, the movies, the parks, even the frontyards of people's own homes. The parents are brainwashed by the evil mayor to support the system, making life for the cubs a total hell. Most of the cubs crack and fall in line with the rules the very first day, but a few manage to struggle on....

With just a small band of cubs to lead the way, you have to fight back against the teachers, adults, police, hall monitors, principal, even their parents and fellow cubs to bring sex back to pouncefield and freedom back to their world.  




Just a pitch, but it promises a lot of opertunities. It's really the only situation I can think of off hand that would involve violence and conflict in the school days universe, because violence, hatred and conflict is so much the opposite of what School Days is about. I can keep coming up with more details, even a whole story if you want, but I'd like to know what guys you think so far.

Hmmm, that's quite an extensive idea you've got there.  I do like the idea of fun being outlawed in a kind of way like you've mentioned.  The idea of censorship running rampant to the point in insanity has always been a favored theme of mine.  I don't think I want to make the big bad an extreme straw man conservative though.  Every political party out there has been guilty of this so I'd want to make sure both sides get an equal amount of ribbing.  If anything I'm perfectly down with the idea of Pouncefield slowly being taken over by a fanatical religious cult that's slowly turning the townspeople into mindless drones.  It would tie in perfectly with the haunted house plot line.

Heh heh heh, sounds like we've got something here!

You know, the people really don't have to be mindless - they can be unwittingly turned into pawns without sacraficing a lot of their charactor traits. You could have a public panic about some new deadly disease that makes everybody so paranoid that sex / fun is outlawed. (Study finds deadly epidemic is caused by sexual promiscuity, details at 11:00...) You could have the game in several parts, starting with everyone struggling to deal with the sudden change and panic that sets in. Then you have the first middle part where everything is opressive and you're just trying to get by, surviving the system. Next, Edna starts to rebel and trys to gather a band of allies to help stop the madness, having to find proof that the epidemic is false and actually convince people to believe her (through combat or otherwise). Next comes the beginning of the end, with the final showdown with the rest of the school in a long drawn out fight, and finally is the epilogue with some big celebration (a school sponsered orgy leaps to mind!!) and people dancing in the streets, etc. etc.


Of course, that's just one way it could be done. There are dozens of others scenarios, charactors and figures to choose from. The main thing is to have something you really like to work with so you enjoy making it. All of these ideas I'm offering right now are just suggestions being tossed in the melting pot. Feel free to pick and choose any parts you like and toss the rest!

This sounds like it would make a perfect RPG! I'm not gonna put out my vote just yet cuz this is only the first of many suggestions I am sure. But it does sound good.
Ronwe
7 years, 7 months ago
Please forgive the randomness, I'm writing this on the fly as ideas come to me....


Battles with cubs could include a "naughty" attack (groping, flashing) that would be devistating to the opponent, but each use of it raises Edna's corruption level. Corruption (or Lewdness, or perversion) would make her more vulnerable to other, more subtle effects in the overall world... more likely to be caught by the grownups or more likely to have a bad ending / encounter. Likewise, each time the naughty attack is used in battles, the victom of the attack might have an chance of crying "Rape!" or something similar, catching the attention of "moral enforcers" (police, religious whatevers...) who might join the fight on his side, or haul you off to jail or a convent or some other place of utter doom.

If Edna's going to be doing a bunch of fighting, she's going to need to take care of the bumps and bruises that go along with it if she's trying to do thing secretly. Food might take care of energy, but bandages, antiseptic, and perhaps even antibiotics or antivenoms might be needed to keep her moving.

Amoung other natural urges, Cubs will get very bored in this kind of enviroment, even getting stircrazy. Edna might start suffering effects of being distractible, unable to think or focus or dizziness, etc... if she isn't successful and finding some fun.

Clothing! Clothes usually get pretty torn up in a fist fight....
Tearing your brand new school uniform (complete with long floor length skirt) would get you in a heap of trouble at school.... or at home for that matter...

Pheromons might be a major part of a campaign like this. Finding ingrediants and coming up with stink bombs, sleeping gas or aphrodisiacs might be a crucial part of getting through the game. (There may be a good reason why they closed chemistry class afterall!)

NO SNACKS!! NO TOYS! NO SODA POP!!! What's a kid to do?!
(Use them to bribe other kids to do your bidding, that's what!!!)


That's about it for now... If I think of other ideas, I'll share 'em here.
Ronwe

Sooo many possibilities.... so little time!

I'd like to start filling out some of the details of the initial plotline I offered earlier. I haven't thought of any special charactor names or anything that would fill some of the roles needed, so I'm just using generic terms for now. (Edit, Brilliant idea for the Big Bad, Have any of you heard of a Dr. Kellogg, from the late 1890's?.... Imagine him being put in charge....)

Please keep in mind that everything here is completely flexible and is subject to change without notice, depending Avian's decisions.

It all starts on the monday after Spring Break, a day that would soon be known as "Black Monday". Students arrive at school expecting another normal day of routine lessons and mischivious play. Some are refreshed after the weeklong break, some are still recovering from it, but all are surprised to be called for an immediate school assembly first thing in the morning. All the students are herded en mass into auditorium/gymnasium by teachers with very serious expressions.

"Students, I am your new Principal, Dr. Kellogg" says a man at the podium, booming into the microphone. "A lot of things have happened while you were gone. There are several new rules you will be expected to follow. The leaders of the community have become alarmed at your behavior lately, and have urged us to make changes needed to protect your safety. From now on, any lewd or lascivious behavior will NOT be tolerated. Mischief and pranks will be severely punished. You will all wear regulation uniforms that will be issued to you at the end of this assembly. There will be NO EXCEPTIONS. Students that cannot adapt to the new rules will be handled on an individual basis.

You will notice that all snack and vending machines have been removed. These were a danger to your health, and from now on you will all be on a special diet for your needs. (soggy Corn Flakes and water! Aghhh!!!) Candy, soda pop and other sweets are strictly prohibited! You will also notice several other changes to the school itself. We have many new cameras installed to monitor all areas, especially secluded ones and bathrooms, and the bathrooms themselves now feature fully enclused privacy stalls for both genders. There will be several new hall monitors that will be checking for hall passes, and bringing violators to me for "adjustment".

Blah blah blah, so on and so forth, etc. etc. etc. etc. and etc. even... You're all basically living in the Victorian era now, and we'll enforce it like Nazis, so be on your best behavior.... blah blah blah you get the picture.

Well, naturally, all the students are in a state of shock and for a little while at least, everything's peaceful. There's a lot of mumbling and whispers, but mostly the students really don't know how to react. Then suddenly, some wisemouth student speaks up and says something to the effect of "Zeig Heil" or "Up Your's", and promptly gets led on stage for some form of barbaric punishment or brainwashing or what have you. (aka Adjustment) They get transformed into the first minion of the masters doing their bidding from then on and frightening the other students to death.

With the point made, the students are released to their classes, where they are subjected to endless skull drudgery for the rest of the day. Everybody goes home, and everything is like normal there. Lots of students rush off to take care of some long overdue "business" with each other, in the bushes, the playground or each other's bedrooms if they can wait long enough, before continuing on with their normal evening.

The next morning, they go to school, everything is restrictive like the day before, classes go on, students sometimes forget the rules but mostly get through the day without making any scenes. After school is a repeat of the day before, only a little more action happens because more students are needing to, having now recovered from spring break.

Ditto for the third day, forth day, fifth, etc. until people start to get really really concerned about the amount of "interpersonal activities" going on outside of school in the afternoon. People think there's a sudden moral epidemic on their hands, a "fucking fever", and start to curb the cubs activities. Soon new rules for the park, the arcade, the playground, the mall and everywhere are put in place. A curfue is established, and cubs are kept seperated. Censorship and modesty become the golden rule. Sex is forbiden, fun is outlawed.

As kids will naturally do, they'll try to get around the rules to get what they want. Some of their shenanigans cause big problems, and it soon seems clear that the only way to control them is to break their spirits. Now the rules are enforced with an iron fist, making it all but impossible for anyone to resist the new order. Offenders are severely punished by adult and classmate alike out of fear and paranoia.

And amidst all this chaos and repression, somehow a plucky little group of students manages to survive long enough, either by staying hidden, tricking their opponents, or using outright force to defeat them, to collect the tools and weapons needed to start taking down their bigger enemies.

Now the time comes where frustration and the old fasioned form of Hystaria come in to play. Nobody's had any relief in days or weeks even. They're desires are boiling over on the inside, but still held back by the barrior of fear and panic that people have. People refuse to acknowledge their feelings inside, which keep building up under the tension of the moral panic they're facing. This proves to be the fatal weekness of the regime. The cubs, in countless battles and negotiations, start to hit upon those urges that people are trying to bury. They remind them of their needs and get them back in touch with their bodies, and in that moment of relief they convert them to their side. The momentum picks up as the movement spreads. More and more people are released from their fear and reminded of what love and life are about, and how to be happy like they used to be.

Then they all start dancing in the streets, and everyone lived happily ever after.



Ahem..... alright, so basically, you have a game where most of it (2/3rd's at least) you're just fighting for survival and trying to collect items and build up your strength for the final climactic (literally) battle. Then you have an great big orgy that would put the Romans to shame, and you might have some little bonus extras of pure sex games at the end (maybe). In the mean time, lots of little side quests can be put in for finding different items, making or using tools or potions, learning about secrets and gathering information, recruting friends, or maybe even finding some personal relief. I must say, that's a hell of a lot of game to play with!

It's entirely up to you though Avian. You can change anything you want, and choose just how much you want to do. You can choose to use this plot idea or throw it out entirely if you want, and do something else. I just want you to enjoy making it, because I know if you do, we will love the hell out of playing it!

*Ahem*
I don't mean to hog the board here guys... Just because I wrote some big fancy schmanzy story thingy doesn't mean you can't offer your own ideas. This is kinda a group effort at the moment, so if you have anything creative please toss it in! Even if it's just a suggestion about my idea, or something completely new and different, I'd like ya to offer it up. The way Avian's goin' to town on flash now, he might have it halfway done before you get around to writing about it later, so now's your chance!

Don't worry about it ^v^ You've given me a lot of good ideas and have been helping in making an outline for the game.  *Snuggles you tightly*  Chances are I wont use everything you've written here but for everything I do use I'll make sure you get 100% credit for it.  Thank you for you enthusiastic replies.  It means a lot to me that you're this excited for this game.  ^v^
Ronwe
7 years, 6 months ago
It's hard not to be excited about the games you make Avain, especially something like this! *Snuggles back!*

I've just been thinking about what it will be like for those poor cubs, having to reform like this! Taking their yiffing away from them is a fate almost worse than death! Poor Edna, Poor Pokeinfo, Poor Cynthia....

Edward, ironically might be the one of the bunch who isn't so bothered by it. He's so shy that he might actually think of this as a welcome relief at first! (at least until the more severe restrictions come down)

Cynthia might enjoy the more controling parts of it, being able to dominate others and bossing them around... I could just imagine her bossing the boys around at school, forcing them to follow the new rules while endlessly teasing them and driving them insane, only to yiff them like crazy after school....  

And then there's those "extracurricular activities" afterschool. The first day would be rather tame, with only a few couples needing to take care of business, and easily staying hidden while they do it. But things pick up on the next day as more and more students need release, until the third or forth day they start doing it out in the open right on the grass lawns outside the school! (This might make a good halfway point in the game, a small initial reward for those able to get through the easy parts before the real challenges begin...) Then everyone gets caught, rounded up, and the town becomes a police state.

Oh the horror! The next day cubs start to go crazy, adult enforcers patrol the streets Some students start acting like rabbid animals, attacking others for no reason. Big battles ensue and the whole school goes into lockdown. Everyone is trapped inside with no hope of escape, and you have to break out with your friends to get away.

(Still working on this thought, but I have to cut it short at the moment. Real life sucks sometimes!)

i think all those ideas would be really cool in an rpg like this. i have been thinking about what kind of stuff you could use for armor and weapons. i know you have probably already thought of these but here goes any way, for armor you could have stuff like dental dams and condoms, stuff that is designed to protect you during sex. and for weapons you could use dildos but plugs anal beads etc... just some ideas i thought id throw out there

We already covered weapons and armor a few days ago. Thank you, anyways.
Ronwe
7 years, 6 months ago
Ahhh!!! But but but! I just had a brainstorm...

Armor:
Football pads, baseball helmets, soccer shinguards, elbowpads, kneepads, gloves, science class safety goggles, althletic cups...
Chastity belts!!

Weapons: Everything from spitwads, dirty gym socks, fire extinguishers, hockey sticks, baseball bats (yikes!), rocks, baseballs, chairs, books...

Basically, anything a kid could be expected to get their hands on!
FeatheredAdventures

Well to keep things relatively simple I'm not going to crazy with the armor and weapon system.  Lost and I have devised what class or weapons and armor each character will use.  Though suggestions are still welcomed ^v^  Basically Armor class will be broken down into Body, Head, and Charm (something the character might wear to boost stats).  Athletic cups and chastity belts sound like perfect fits in the charm category ^v^
Ronwe
7 years, 6 months ago
Heh heh, that's what I was thinking myself... Actually, I had the idea that the chastity belt could be a sort of special item, something that would be put on "problem cases" by the authorities, thereby making it impossible for any sort of naughty activity at all. This could be a good punishment or almost a bad ending for the player if they get trapped or caught by the authorities, forcing them to go on some drawn out quest to find a way to get it off them.

The athletic cup now, well, that's just sensible protection! (though it is kinda useless for Edna...)

Anyway, heck I'm just having fun coming up with ideas for the game! I can't wait to see how things start coming together (though I will if I have too! ^v^)

I sent you a PM on an idea I had for your game.
After reading the comics through again the game is based around the same day from each of the characters perspectives. At various points the characters cross paths and can interact. Once the selected character has completed a range of various goals another character becomes available to play. The same day has one core story and a range of different characters although there is no strict set rules for which character should be played first or last apart from Edward and Edna.

So far what I have put together involves
Edward, Edna, Cynithia, Pokeinfo, Lucy, Laura and Mrs T

By the end of the day each character has had to quest for various items, completed mini quests and interacted with most of the other characters which for the most part is set in the school, Laura's house, Mrs T house and possibly one or two more locations in between.

The characters remain pretty faithful to the comic although some artistic licence has been used to expand on their known traits. I will sent you another PM update later today which will give you an idea of most the school content currently for each character and an easy to follow guide of how the characters cross paths as part of the story.

How can there be monsters needed for a RPG in the School Days world…what about the ideal of movies are going to shot nearby and they are storing the robotic puppets and other items needed at the school. While they are snowed in, the robotic puppets took the programming of a game. That means that Edna needs to search out of the school for a way out while fighting the puppets. In order to fight the puppets they characters need props from the movies and when they defect the puppets they get parts to help improve themselves and/or what they have.
You could add costumes in that give something special to the character but to get them they need to get them from the other students that something happen to them as well. You may even be able to add a new type of battle against other that are not puppets. You could even make the costumes be what give them their “power”

You're putting too far ahead, Sparky. I already created a bestiary a few days ago, and your idea ends up deviating too far away from the original plot.

Okay, doods. I finished writing the first chapter of the game and sent it over to Avian for him to look over. Once I hear back from him, we'll discuss chapter 2.
