Description: Marlo Lane is a novice police officer hoping to make a difference. For the last year, he has been consumed with anxiety about Sasha Michaels, his best friend, who has been diagnosed with cancer and is expected to have no more than three months to live. His desperation to save his friend has opened him up to the possibilities of 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 pregnancies or refractory periods. 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 Mind (Lvl MAX): The mental flexibility to live your life as an erogame. You're more able to accept the realities of your new world. You'll also bounce back from painful, upsetting and bizarre sexual experiences with relative ease. Rape can be anything from a recoverable trauma to a Tuesday afternoon, but it won't ruin your life. Other aspects of this skill depend on 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.
To Mine Own Me Be True (Lvl MAX): Even at the center of the Erogame, you are not just an erogame character, but a human being possessed of his own free will. Your family will always be safe from you, and little children everywhere.
True Love Conquers All: If you love someone enough, nothing can ever permanently separate them from you. The only exception is their wishing to leave you---deliberately, voluntarily, and based on correct information. People you love will live out a full natural lifespan and they will never die before you do. If they ever face serious physical or psychological harm, you will always get a chance to rescue them. This applies to any type of love, not just romantic love. If you would undergo hardship and sacrifice to protect someone, if losing them would leave a scar on your heart that never fully heals, then you will be able to take care of them, and in time you will always be reunited.
Info // Character Stats // Level:
At LVL 1, and 0% progress toward the next level, you'll never be this weak again. 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:
With the average being 10, and perfect 10s being 40, your BOD of 20 makes you solidly the most attractive person in the room, assuming the room isn't in Hollywood, California.
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 1, you're very nearly asexual. For now, anyway.
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 6 makes it possible for you to get a date with a girl who doesn't have anything else to do that Friday. Could be worse, but could be much better.
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 4 means you'd better be extra careful with your teeth. As for other bedroom skills, have you considered trying to… well… move?
How do you increase this stat? Take a guess.
Info // Character Stats // Perversion:
Your PRV of 19 despite your total romantic isolation is a sad commentary on the decadence of the third millennium. Nonetheless, casual exposure to a variety of naughty ideas has left you open to a whole host of things you prefer not to think about.
You can increase this stat by being a little less close-minded, and acting accordingly.
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 Marlo smiles and tucks a bit of Sasha's hair back behind his ear and says "It's nothing, I just like seeing you happy."
"That's cute. You're cute."
That tiny smile doesn't leave Sasha's face when they get back to Sasha's apartment and he curls up on the couch.
Hmm. Will this work?
He sits behind Sasha and takes his hair and separates it into three parts, uses his fingers as a comb more than he strictly has to.
Sasha makes a soft happy noise and relaxes into Marlo's hands.
Quest complete: Longing
You have leveled up!
Quest available: Holding Out For A Hero
Hold Sasha for at least fifteen minutes.
Success: Sasha is so happy.
Quest available: Melissa Misses You.
Remind Melissa of the good times you had. And the ones you might have in the future with your newly elevated FUK stat.
Success: +250 xp, ?????
Failure: -1 FUK, ?????
He finishes off the braid and unlocks his phone and reads the text. Hovers over the Y / N buttons.
"Apparently my ex wants to catch up," he says, when Sasha makes a curious noise from where he's curled up around a pillow.
"Don't," Sasha says immediately. "Catching up with your ex does not ever end well, trust me, I've tried it."
...yeah. That's true. And they'd broken up for a reason.
He clicks N and puts the phone down and pulls Sasha closer.
Another soft happy sound. He nuzzles Marlo's shoulder and — doesn't say the thing he's thinking.
+1 SED, for secret reasons.
A skill has been created by a special action! Holding Sasha has unlocked the skill Cuddle.
Sasha's still much too thin but having him in his arms, warm and breathing and alive, is — good. Marlo doesn't let go.
Neither does he; he settles against Marlo's chest and stays there.
Cuddle has increased by 1!
He's pretty sure he knows what cuddling involves but he looks at the skill description anyway.
Cuddle Lvl 2. Active. 1 SUB/minute.
When this skill is active, you will instinctively know the best ways to hold someone to make them feel warm, safe, protected, and comfortable. Your limbs will not fall asleep no matter what position you are in. More advanced cuddle skills will be unlocked at higher levels.
....that's an adorable skill.
Okay. He switches that on and — his arms go here and here, he should adjust the way he's sitting like so, cradle Sasha a little tighter —
It's been a long day. (Week. Month. Year, if he's being honest.) And Marlo's arms are so so safe.
Maybe he should just.... fall asleep there.
Quest available: Touch Sasha
He's asleep. No one will know. And it's not like you decided you wanted to. The Erogame is forcing you.
Success: +1 LST, +1 PRV, +10 Cuddle, +500 XP, a pleasant surprise for Sasha.
No, absolutely the hell not, and what does this game think it is doing.
