Description: Peka Atan is the first of the three children of an undertaker and an autopsy tech; she's got a credit on layaway and a baby hanging in the balance. She lives at their home, when she's at home, which she isn't because the army pays better than anything in-district and they were hiring. She loves her baby, music, and sex, and it's that last thing that makes her a candidate for the Erogame.
Erogamer's Body (Lvl MAX): The biological ability to live your life as an erogame. Venereal disease doesn't exist for you, or accidental pregnancies or yeast infections. Arbitrarily large appendages can fit inside any of your orifices. You heal from all marks with a good night's sleep, ready for the next day's adventures. Other aspects of this skill depend on the BOD stat.
Erogamer's Soul (Lvl MAX): A different player might have received an Erogamer's Mind skill to unlock their potential and allow them to play the game as it is meant to be played. Either you really didn't want that, or your mind was already porny enough to impress the Erogame. This core skill only prevents your mind from being fundamentally and permanently damaged by extreme sexual experiences, and allows you to make voluntary use of the FUK, SED, LST, and PRV stats.
Erogamer's World (Lvl MAX): The consent of reality to live your life as an erogame. People are never too preoccupied to consider sex or romance, not while you're around. Bystanders won't ignore what you do, but they're unlikely to actually stop you. Those who do decide to involve themselves are drawn into the logic of the Erogame. If you go far enough that an authority sees no choice but to intervene… they won't treat you as a simple criminal. Other aspects of this skill depend on the ERO stat.
Pretty In Pink: Your caste is "pink." Everyone can immediately tell this by looking at you. Pinks are completely immune to pollution, and can therefore interact with reds or do red work with no censure (although objects in a pink's possession can be polluted, including clothing, which means no one will bat an eye at you walking around naked just in case, no matter how formal the setting). Pinkness occasionally occurs spontaneously in the general population, and all a pink's children will be pink regardless of the other parent's caste. Further aspects of this perk will depend on your ERO.
Info // Character Stats
LVL / Level: The quantified totality of your potency as an erogame character. The effect of this characteristic goes beyond just the 5 extra stat points you get per level, and the additional perk point you receive every 5th level.
BOD / Body: Your physical attractiveness, and other biological capabilities. At higher levels, your body becomes able to enact more exotic erogame events.
LST / Lust: The intensity of your sexual urges, and how easy it is to get you going.
SED / Seduction: Your ability to seduce others, to pique their interest and arouse their desire.
FUK / Fucking: Your ability to perform in bed and give others pleasure… or other sensations.
PRV / Perversion: Your descent into the world of naughtiness, fetish, deviance, and corruption.
ERO / Erogame Logic: The extent to which the world will bend---or can be bent by you---to create romantic and sexual situations in defiance of probability. Or at higher levels, physics.
DOM / Dominant Energy: Based off SED and FUK, fueling skills that invoke your dominance, sadism, or mastery.
SUB / Submissive Energy: Based off LST and PRV, fueling skills that invoke your submission, masochism, or service.
Info // Character Stats // Level
At LVL 1, and 0% progress toward the next level, you're at the very start of your new life, a world of untapped possibilities lying ahead of you.
You can increase your level by completing the quests the Erogame offers you, or by causing romantic and sexual events to happen to you or around you. The more difficult the challenge, the greater the rewards.
Info // Character Stats // Body
Your bodacious BOD of 25 is at the high end of prettiness; you're unlikely to run into people more attractive than you unless you walk into a modelling agency. Anyone would want a piece of that, and you know it.
You can increase this stat through exhibitionism, and other acts that invoke the pure beauty and power of your physical form.
Info // Character Stats // Lust
At a LST of 30, you’re as horny outside of spring as most people are in spring. Good thing you're the Erogamer, now; you'll get more sex than you know what to do with.
You gain in this stat while experiencing sexual urges that are unusually intense or that go on unusually long.
Info // Character Stats // Seduction
Your SED of 12 makes you slightly better than average at seducing people, but "average" includes first-springers who just want to plant their faces on the nearest attractive target. Being hot helps, of course, but you could use some polishing in the arts of seduction to go that extra mile. And the Erogame is here to help you with that.
You can increase this stat by arousing the romantic interest or sexual desire of others, and successfully pursuing them or being caught.
Info // Character Stats // Fucking
Your FUK of 22 makes you good at what you do, to nearly professional levels. Since sex work is in-caste for pinks, you could become literally professional if you wanted, but you can make sure you'll find plenty of people to practice on even if not.
How do you increase this stat? Take a fucking guess.
Info // Character Stats // Perversion
Your PRV of 15, given your relative experience, is nothing to write home about, but five minutes on your pocket everything would be enough to show you the whole wide world of kink that's out there waiting for you. And pinks don't even need to wear clothes in public.
You can increase this stat by looking for opportunities to get even kinkier.
Info // Character Stats // Erogame Logic
At an ERO of 10, your life has become an erogame taking place in a mostly realistic setting. What happens to you might seem unlikely to others, but it won't break their belief in a sane universe… yet. Witnesses will reach for explanations other than the Erogame, but they'll still notice the unusual events.
If you keep pushing probability to its limits, then probability will learn to be a bit more flexible down there, relax and take it in and not protest so much.
Info // Character Stats // Dominant and Submissive Energy
If this were a different game, you'd have mana and hit points.
And they'd refill just from you sitting around on your ass doing nothing.
Peka has just woken up to the military camp alarm and needs to be packed, rationed, and in her truck in thirty minutes. She was not expecting to find this floating above her face.
"What?" she hisses at it, eyes skipping around in bewilderment.
It fails to react to her confusion in any way.
Right, okay, she will read it.
Yep she's insane.
She waves her arm through it to see if it will wave away.
It's not waved away, but it does seem to be intangible.
Okay, she's ever played a computer game. Maybe it'll go away if she... buys stats. She hits SED three times and FUK twice.
It does go away! And is immediately replaced by:
Quest available: Test Drive
This weird hallucination said you have some bizarre "stats" that you just added to. Surely this is baloney, right? It would be silly to go out and test your supposed "improved skills" in seduction and in bed. And you definitely shouldn't go find someone to seduce and fuck right now.
Hint: If you called your mom and asked about Katin's credit, certainly nothing new would've happened. Hallucinations don't affect credit prices.
Success: You continue in your terribly boring, annoying, terrifying job for the army and nothing changes
Failure: +250xp, more quests?
...okay, hallucinations that invite you to test them are not a thing she understands to be part of the standard mental illness deal.
She calls her mom. She asks how Katin's doing.
"Katin's a darling, of course - I'll send over the latest pictures, are those not autosharing? -"
"No, they are. Uh, how's - how's, um, progress on the thing with her credit -"
"We wrapped that up last week and it's a huge load off all of us - you know, Toham said they probably wouldn't really shoot a pink baby, but there's not a policy on that specifically, so better to play it safe even if Shahn kicked up a fuss about not being able to buy toys -"
"- yeah. Uh, thank goodness that's... over."
"Yes! Do you know how long it'll take them to process a discharge?"
"I'm... not sure. I need to get on that."
"Yes, do, Katin misses you, dear."
"I'll - do that. Today."
And she gets off the call because she still probably does have to be packed and ready in not very long. She can eat in the truck, so she deprioritizes breakfast to square away everything else. Somewhere in there she notices she has to hit accept, so she does that after a puzzled reread of "success" and "failure", hoping that "right now" doesn't mean trying to fit in a quickie in the six minutes thirty seconds she has to spare before rollout.
The floating quest window disappears, and no ominous timer starts ticking down to replace it.
They advance all the way into some evacuated Voan village. Peka pulls her tent out of her truck.
A soldier notices. "Hey, uh, Peka, right?" he asks, walking over. "Are you alright?"
"- yes sir?"
"Just wondering, 'cause - do you have nowhere to stay?"
Is "I have my tent sir" the wrong answer?
She suspects that might be the wrong answer.
"Did you have someplace in mind?"
"Well, you could grab a house, you don't need the tent, right? - uh, you might, um. Need to get rid of the clothes. But we probably have changes of clothes your size, if you want 'em."
"Well, the uniform was new when they gave it to me, but I guess you can't be too careful..."
"Right! You know, it's really altruistic of you, doing that sort of work when you don't even need to - uh, but anyway, I got a place and there's an empty one right next to it..." He maybe gives her a quick once-over but he tries very valiantly to pretend he didn't.
She starts unbuttoning her uniform.
He grins! And doesn't look, no, sir, he's, you know, just making sure she removes all the polluted items of clothing, which she'll presumably put somewhere, right?
In the truck! With the tent!
"So where're you setting up?"
"This way." He starts leading the way and only looks at her because he wants to make sure she's following alright.
"Nice place," she comments when they reach his commandeered farmhouse. "Do, uh, do you have it to yourself?"
"I, uh, yeah. Yeah, I do." He puffs up his chest just a little.
"Real beds tonight, that's exciting, they probably didn't haul their mattresses when they left."
"Definitely didn't," he agrees. "So real beds, with real mattresses... that, uh... real people can sleep in. Or, other things. In."
