  • less death – more sex ; a suggestion

    I was reading the blog entries again. And wile “kill Adventures to gain mana” sounds like a good basic mechanism to gain resources, it doesn't sound very hentai. Who wants to kill the sexy adventure girl?

    So let me dare to make a suggestion: What if you need to capture them alive to drain there mana.
    And the best way to drain mana is obviously though the genitalia(male or female). The adventure boys get there mana sucked out by a sexy succubus. The girls mabye by male monsters.


    After a few days they are released. Sore, humiliated, unable to use magic for a few weeks and probably traumatised, but with little lasting physical damage. They live to tell others about the treasures in you dungeon.... and about the horrors that wait. Some may even return to get revenge. Or because some had a good time. (What would Darkness form Konosuba do?)


    Also when I thing about keeping virgins as bait it doesn't sound so appealing to me in the long run. If they have to stay virgins you can do nothing too sexy whit them. So they stay locked up in some dungeon cell, waiting for some rescue that probably will never come? That is just sad. So what if the develop Stockholm syndrome? If you can't beat them, join them. They could agree to be you slaves, working as agents outside the dungeon.


    Need more virgins? Have them tell some female paladin about the dungeon.
    Need some easy pray? Have them ask some adventure Newbys for a favour.
    Or maybe they tell that sorceress full of tasty mana about that magical atefact in you dungon.

    And of couse this ex-virgins reture somethimes to you dungon to get rewards.

    I am trying to think of ways to be more mindful of how we're going to position all these elements in the story. The basic mechanic is sound, as you said, but positioning counts for a lot- "kill adventurers to gain mana", but how? Cannibalism would turn a lot of people off, ditto some kind of ritual murder.

    You could incorporate sex as you say, but what of the large number of players already in the fanbase who don't like netorare or netorase?

    Further, while I don't mind skating by Patreon's regulations through the time-honoured tactic of simply not saying anything I don't want them to hear, I don't know how we could get away with "Rape people to gain your primary game resource".

    I also don't know if a "maiden" needing to be a virgin is going to survive the early concept stages. I know the two terms mean the same thing- suppose I could try switching to "damsel"- but either way, the central concept there is "beautiful girl you kidnap" and the virginity aspect is entirely optional to me. Whether or not you can have sex with them will probably depend on art budget priorities.

      Perhaps mana is obtained through any strong human emotion - lust could certainly be in there, but so could rage, frustration, greed, fear and such? The idea that you play the dungeon to maximize a response from adventurers. Scare them shitless but let them flee so they can tell others. Have a diverse group tear itself apart as they are deal with different personal drives and goals. Meanwhile the demons are just soaking in the strong emotions generated.

      That way there could be some small gain for even a "failed" dungeon and some avoidance of a death spiral. Pride and happiness at beating a dungeon are also strong emotions to harvest - not preferable of course because the dungeon is less usable and other resources have to be replaced and such, but at least there's something the player can work from when rebuilding.

        I understand your problems.


        I'm too not a fan of netorase - but i did not see it from that angle.
        Being unwillingly “drained” by a girl might not be fun if it happened for real – but it makes fun roleplay. So I just don't take it serious if it happens in a game.
        The adventures are all single, there all masochistic and if they lose it is just part of the adventure. So no need to feel sad for them.

        I of course don't want you to come in trouble whit Patron, and realize that this is not something you can communicate on you Patron-page.
        But constantly killing people to gain resource is maybe a mood-killer. It could make the game to serious.

        You could of course say that the mana is removed by magic rays after they lose. They lose consciousness and awake a mile away from the dungon. Whitout mana and valuables – but still alive and well.


        Maybe I just me being screemisch

          I 100% feel what you're saying, positioning all this stuff is going to take some care.

            IMO as long as you don't depict it graphically, human sacrifice is fine. A lot of gestion games feature executions of prisoners. It's not as much of a turn-off as you think. It would probably clash with the tone of the game tho, but that's a different problem.

              Maybe human sacrifice to a tentacle horror?, personally I don't mind graphic human sacrifice, keeps to other prisoners fearful and willing to do what the player wants in order to keep from being sacrificed, maybe make it a game option along with non sexy torture/rape.

                The premise of this new game sounds promising, but I'm uncertain on how you're going ti implement it.
