Tabletop style MC-focused game
Hey guys. Not sure how much interest this will generate, but I've been looking at the rules for Fate Core/Fate Accelerated Edition (a very simple RPG) and it struck me how easily the system would translate to the kinds of situations I come to the Hub to see in art.

For those unfamiliar, Fate is a game that uses very simple character sheets, the same dice every time, and is focused on creating an interesting and dramatic story with the help of all involved. Characters are made up of just a few stats (I'd probably stick with the six from Accelerated) and some phrases that describe them and determine what situations help or hurt their efforts.

I'm kind of brainstorming what kind of world I'd want to run, not to mention what kind of play format to go by. But, one thing about Fate games is that they emphasize creating the game alongside the players. Thus, I want to see who's down for this before I go much further. So who's with me?

EDIT: Now on a Discord server! https://discord.gg/xaRfqUH

Funny I've also thought a lot about the same idea with fate. I run game PBP on discord myself.

So I'm down for it.
I've been toying with the idea of finally having a Hub OC, this would be a good way to flesh him out. Plus I just enjoy roleplaying, sign me up.
Your timing is superb. Count me in.
Did somebody say Hypno-RPG-Tabletop!?!

I AM IN!

Play by post.

You just post as you go, good when not everyone is free at the same time
Very impressed with the response from just a few hours! I'm going to start working on a Discord server for it today and I'll post the invite link when it's ready.

Sweet. If people keep flooding in like this I might need some help GMing as well.
I run a kink-based D&D5e game on Roll20 based out of the Solaris discord server, it's so far going pretty well. This is a good idea that can be a lot of fun for those that enjoy this kind of thing.
Part of me is really curious about this, its been forever since I did just text based rp and I've been doing more regular tabletop rpg stuff for a while now. As much as I'd like to play all kinds of games timezones so often get in the way. So whatever comes of this I'd be interested even just to watch so to speak.

I'm actually partial to the play by post method mentioned above.

Anyway, Discord link: https://discord.gg/xaRfqUH
hypno tabletop? Yes.
I'd like to point out that I've been trying to do this with Squid Ops for over a year now. The main reasons I haven't are that a) I haven't been able to find contact info for sleepymaid and b) I want people to be able to do things that aren't erotic roleplay with it. Magical realm is rarely a fun time.

That being said, if you are going to ERP I'd recommend Risus. It's basically Fate's "pick some TVTropes articles, these are your mechanical abilities" schtick with all the cruft stripped away, which means that there's basically no math to get in the way of your faps.

"no math to get in the way of your faps-" Are you listening to yourself?

"no math in the way of faps" :<
This sounds great I'd like to join in if you'll have me.
Always interested in this. PhaseTwo's Squid Ops game never quite took off so I'm up for this instead. I'll try and catch up on Discord later.
After just a couple of days running this, all I can say is, holy shitballs, is it going quickly and well. There's no way I could have kept up with the crowd that's coming in if it weren't for so many of them being so helpful and/or patient. It's really kind of unbelievable.

I didn't want to do an ERP campaign, which some people seem to have been confused about. I want to work with sleepymaid to write a book for other people to make their own campaigns. Going through some of the Patreon art that got depaywalled recently it looks like sleepymaid has similar inclinations.

I was referring to my offer to playtest your game, but yeah. There's a distinction.
We've been at this for a few days, so I think I'll share a little bit of the setting with the Hub.

Welcome to your first year of MCTech. To the outside world, an elite university that produces some of the greatest names in technology, biology, and political science. To those granted access to its halls, it is a omnidimensional melting pot that either shapes the next generation of conquerors or shapes them into a new batch of toys.

Students learn myriad methods of mind control, hypnosis, and suggestion in their chosen fields of study. It's a very hands-on place that encourages competition and healthy survival techniques. At any point someone can be entranced by their fellow students or the faculty, so always be on guard and choose your "weapon" wisely.
I've been having a lot of fun with this game, and I'd like to note that we are always welcoming new players. Don't be shy and join in!
Is it okay to join the Discord just to spectate?

Yes! But we would love it if you joined in eventually. No pressure though.
Are there other game options? Is there anyone else open to other play styles?

If you asked, I'm sure someone would be willing to GM another game. Heck, I'd be willing to GM another game on the weekends if you gave me some prep time. What do you mean by other play styles? I've already put some thought into MC campaigns beyond "spot the (femdom/malesub/alien abduction/futadom/delete as necessary) opportunity" for the Squid Ops book, so I could probably do a prototype game based on whichever idea you guys like the best.
A few of the classes offered at MCTech...

Induction 101, the art of hypnotic trance. Taught by "the White Witch" Professor Morgan and her teacher's assistant (read sextoy), Sophia.

Xenotechnology, learn to build and operate equipment from across the multiverse. Taught by Professor Anton, a sapient A.I. who was once created in the very same class.

Xenobiology, learn the anatomy of every living creature and how to play with it like God.

Home Economics, learn to be the perfect wife- I mean... learn to take care of yourself with proper diet and basic skills. Taught by Stepford spokesmodel, Mrs. Spring.

Magics 101, learn how to really use a spell, no sorting hat required. Taught by the foxy kitsune Mrs. Cara.

There are also many sports clubs and fitness classes offered to keep a healthy body, if you can't save your mind. All ran by Coach Tora, Tigress beastman and proud "hunter".
