Hypno Pop CYOA
Hey there all you Hunie Pop fans on the Hub, Ghost13 here and I've got some awesome news!

I'm making a hypnosis Hunie Pop CYOA!

Cue the singers! ...Of which there are none, sadly...

Okay, it's gonna work like this, you're a male with some considerable talent with the hypnotic arts (you're so good, you bearly need to say "look into my eyes" or swing that pocket watch in order to put someone into a deep trance. But surprisingly, your dating life has been, how to say it... Nonexistent.

Well, one night, something (or rather, someone) comes along and changes that!

Okay, now that the basic premise explanation is out of the way for anyone reading this that knows nothing of Hunie Pop, time to get to what makes this important. You readers will have some important choices to make over this CYOA, such as:
How dramatic is it?
How easily will the ladies be to hypnotize?
You just after some sex friends, or do you want a harem of devoted lovers?
Do any of your 'victims' even realize what you've done?
Do you let them stay in character, or do you change them so much it gets into OC is Serious Business territory?

YOU DECIDE!

I'll try to have the first few polls (which will determine things about our protagonist) as soon as I can, along with explanations of what those choices mean.

Until then, leave a comment to let me know what you all are thinking.

P.S.
If anyone has ideas for a name, let me know, I'm open to suggestions. Otherwise, our name is Marshmallow.
Okay, here's the first set of polls, to help flesh out our protagonist:

Your Personality: http://www.strawpoll.me/12595988

Basically, this first one determines what our protagonist's initial personality, which may change depending on what kind of choices are most frequently win.
spoiler

The next item is your preferred method of inducting someone (which isn't to say you can't use other methods): http://www.strawpoll.me/12596004

I don't think I need to go in depth with this one...

And last is your ultimate goal, what you want to do now that you've met a certain Love Fairy: http://www.strawpoll.me/12596036

I don't think this one needs much explanation either, but if I'm wrong, let me know on the thread and I'll gladly elaborate.

For each one I picked "Nice Guy", "Pocket Watch", and "Scoring Sexy Slaves" respectively.

I like the way you think CJO!
Does "You are getting sleepy" imply general speach inductions, because if so then that seems like it would work much better for a text-based story than the other, visual, induction methods.
I had to go for Nerdy, Crystal, and harem because duh.
Question: Later down the line in development, could a "Player's Gender" feature be added where you can pick your gender at the start, and depending on which gender you pick, a parser changes the honorifics (with male, the gender based words like "dude", "guy", "sir", etc.) to the honorifics for referring to the selected gender (i.e.: feminine honorifics like "gal", "girl" (in the sense of how Kyu uses it in Huniepop when you pick female player gender), "ma'am", etc. when you pick female)?
("Sir" and "Ma'am" are being used here as examples of honorifics for when the character speaking to you at the time is hypnotized. "Master"/"Mistress" works for this purpose as well, but weren't used because "Master" is technically gender neutral (It can be used for both genders.))
Okay people, so far Harem seeking Dominator is in the lead, while induction method is tied between eyes and crystal. Keep voting and/or commenting!

Sort of... but I'm not good at coming up with lengthy inductions though...

Yeah, that must have been a real no-brainer for you.

No Anon, you'll be a dude the entire CYOA. That is not changing. Sorry.

When I played I did try to pick the nerdy answers cause they were some of the best. I just have to say momo had better be in this or riot.

*Grabs his riot gear, just to be safe* Sorry Imasuky, but I haven't unlocked Momo... Maybe if I knew how I could add her in...

...Please don't riot.

How about Celeste, the blue skined bounty hunter babe from beyond the stars?
So I went with nice guy, crystal pendant and harem builder~

As is evident, I like having likable protaganists, any chance our likely dominator will treat his harem right~?

Fuck a girl, then give Kyu the two items you start with, then visit the beach.

I was asking if Ghost needed to know. I have nearly all the achievements in the game. I only need like 3 to have them all. And it annoys me.

Derik no this is not a self insert

No problem on that front. I've unlocked her and fucked her.

It will all depend on the choices that win, Derik. As it stands, none of the personalities are "evil" exactly; the Dominator is just more focused on obedience/submission and not on his slaves' pleasure/enjoyment, it doesn't mean he's abusive.
Nerdy, Spirals, Harem.
Spirals was somewhat of an arbitrary choice however, since my favorite methods of induction aren't options, and I liked all the provided ones equally.
Harem builder was kind of obvious as that's what the game may as well have turned into at some point if you were able to take the story past where it ends.
And to wrap around to the back, I picked nerdy because I feel like it opens up the most possibilities down the road and later on once things go deeper in.
I chose weird, hypnotic eyes(however that actually differs from the spiral one) and sexy slaves(Altough on second thought, the Harem one is better).
If I want to have my slaves shove me on my submarine through the town, they should do that!
Well, so far, Dominator, Crystal, and Harem/Slaves (tied) are in the lead. I want how much longer I should let the polls stay up?

I... can't tell if that last line was an innuendo or a great line for a wierdo Ehren.

It was the latter, when I said submarine I MEANT A SUBMARINE!
Ahahahahah!
So a pocket watch induction is out of the question?

Seems that way. Well, if the video game version gets coded in a mod friendly format, then someone can make a mod that adds it. (Might take a few years, though.)
I chose Dominator, Hypnotic eyes, and Harem.
I don't know why harem and sex slaves are different options. They're not exactly mutually exclusive, but they're the first and second most voted so it probably doesn't matter.

I'm not the QM, but if I had to guess 'sex slaves' means we for the most part leave our victims in place, with lives and jobs outside of us, but with triggers to ensure obedience whenever we wish to call upon then. With 'harem' we instead steal them away and make them servants in some grand mansion.

If I'm right 'harem' adds a fun little management aspect to the CYOA, but depending on the QM and the players we might end up spending more time figuring out minor details of our lifestyle than enslaving people.

Well if you put it like that, harem sounds way more fun.

Especially if we're talking HuniePop characters. Especially if Audrey is in there.

Hmm, using outrageous tricks to score a date?
I vote Kissing Prank.
For a name, I give you Connor Troll.
He should be named Biggus Dickus
He should be named Brown Brick
