Dark Champions had a Physical Complication for five points called "Poor Social Skills" that gave a -1 to all Interaction skills. It sounds a bit like what you describe.

 

If you give the character only a familiarity with Charm and this Complication, he gets a whopping 7- for Charm. Suave he would not be. :)

 

The game uses the Cortex system. You know, the published Serenity RPG. Just haven't had time to get it rolling, between HERO and nWoD.

 

Such things are generally much easier to build in HERO. In fact, I may take a run at writing up that particular social limitation soon.

A plethora of skills and perks:

Charm sub-skills(cost 1 point per +1)

Seduce

Befriend

Seduce sub-subskills(cost 1 point per +2)

Flirting--the art of light and friendly, playful and suggestive banter and body language

Dating--the art of planning, hosting and conducting oneself on a friendly or romantic date

Entice--the art of "closing the deal" romantically("Do you want to come inside for some coffee?")--transitioning to physical intimacy

 

Analyze--this skill could have romantic, erotic or sexual varieties

Analyze Personality Type--with a successful roll, the character gains a deeper insight into the target's personality, motives, likes and dislikes, and may gain a bonus for other interaction skills

Analyze Erotic Response--with a successful roll, the character gains a deeper insight into what the target finds pleasurable, and may gain a bonus to Perform Sexual Technique rolls

 

KS: Sexual Fetishes, Kinks, Paraphilias and Taboos(SFKPT)

PS: Fetishist

KS: The Sexual Underground(alternative sexualities, swinging, fetishists, bdsm, etc.)

KS: Specific Fetist, Kink, Paraphilia or Taboo Preference

KS: Sexual Technique--this is complementary to PS: Perform Sexual Technique--bonuses are also given for familiarity of partner and their level of enthusiasm

PS: Perform Sexual Technique

One can have more specific technique KS/PS as well(PS: Fellatrix, e.g.), though for 98% of campaigns this would be excessive detail.

PS: Sex Worker(knows the basics of enticing customers, negotiating acts to be performed and payment thereto, feigning sincerity, etc.)--to some extent this may include strippers, phone sex workers, and porn stars as well as prostitutes

PS: Dominatrix

PS: Sex Slave/Harem Girl/Boy Trainer--the character is skilled in disciplining, conditioning, training and "breaking down" people employed/created/abducted/purchased as sex slaves or harem members (generally this would be considered an evil character)

PS: Harem Master

PS: Madam

 

Penalty Skill Levels for Non-combat skills--I don't know what the appropriate point cost would be, but in a pinch I'd suggest just taking every level at a -1 limitation, only to offset X penalties

PSLs for Difficulty would reduce the penalty to the skill roll for performing more difficult tasks

PSLs for Rapid would reduce the penalty for performing the task more swiftly than the suggested base time

 

Negative Skill Levels--these could be used to either reduce the success of the attacker's skill roll, or to penalize the target's roll to resist the effects of a successful skill use

 

Perk: Sex Club Membership--this could be worth 1-5 points, depending on level of membership and what privileges attach thereto

Perk: Harem Master

Perk: Sex Club Owner--probably worth 5-10 points, assuming greater influence and maximum privilege

Perk: Madam

Perk: License to Debauch(character enjoys broad legal immunity and others are expected to indulge their appetites): 10 points, 20 if it includes carte blanche to torture/kill people

Perk: Playboy --you get into the best clubs, get introduced to beautiful interesting people, and can often get into places without a reservation

Perk: Supermodel--ditto

Perk: Celebrity(this should be self-explanatory)

Perk: Porn Mogul

 

KS: Sex Toys--character is thoroughly familiar with them

PS: Use Sex Toys--character is particularly skilled in their use

 

KS: Specific Sexual Technique(or group of techniques)

PS: Perform Specific Technique

 

Makeup--2 point skill, character knows how to apply makeup, with a successful roll can gain a bonus to social interaction skills(+1 or +2)

Grooming--character knows the finer points of personal hygiene, hair styling, etc.

Fashion/Dress--character knows how to dress fashionably and appropriately for any situation

Skill Enhancer--Lover--subtracts 1 point from appropriate sexual/erotic/romantic skills

Skill Enhancer--Performer--subtracts 1 point from performance skills(singing, dancing, public speaking, etc.)

Universal Lover--this is a catchall for all sexual/erotic/romantic skills, 20 points for an 11-, +1 per 2 points

 

Romantic Luck--being in the right place at the right time, love at first sight, not getting caught cheating, etc.

Sexual Favor--like a regular Favor, but a lot more fun .

 

Follower--Girlfriend or Boyfriend(early relationship, will do things they don't mind doing)

Follower--Committed Submissive or Concubine(will sometimes do things they're strongly against doing)

Follower--Devoted Love Slave or Sex Slave(will do literally anything to please)

Base--Love Shack--a small apartment tricked out for romance

Base--Love Nest--a medium sized apartment or getaway pad tricked out for romance

Base--Love Palace--a decadent, comfy penthouse suite optimized for McLovin'

Base--Sex Club--a place where people go for anonymous hookups and various freaky-deaky stuff

Speaking of bases, there is also the holodeck option for futuristic campaigns. I suppose for AI characters, you could use a limited form of Summon. You could also do something like Lucius put up in one of the Star Hero threads, a non-sentient robot that could fake sentience really well.

 

Thinking about sci-fi and fantasy settings, you could have Uncanny Valley issues with races. Consider the eyes of Starfire from DC comics. They are an example of very non-human eyes that could trigger the Uncanny Valley response.

This thread on rpg.net discussing some "Indie" game with a focus on romance and sexuality that might be of interest.

 

Yeah, it's interesting. Unfortunately, my budget is limited at the moment, so I can't go around snapping up romantic/erotic RPGs. Plus my wife might look at me a bit askance if I'm flipping through a book titled "Hot Guys Making Out"(not that there's anything wrong with that)...

Excuse me for intruding unnecessarily on the thread. I thought some of those interested in the topic might find those games and/or the discussion of them interesting and informative as it related to the topic at hand. It wasn't meant as an endorsement to purchase them or to side track the thread at hand.

 

FWIW: Several of the games discussed are free or cost a few bucks.

No, that's perfectly fine--your contribution was appreciated. :) The whole point of the thread is to provide a forum to (hopefully) help GMs and players interested in developing/exploring romantic, erotic and sexual themes in their games. I will check out the links as I have time to. I was just saying that personally, while I'd love to collect a dozen or two of the products already on the market and use them as helpful material for coming up with more stuff, that's less of an option for me at the moment. The Book of Erotic Fantasy, and Naughty and Dice came up on an Amazon search. I'll check drivethrurpg for more.

:) I haven't had much to contribute so I hope those games and the Social Engineering book bring something to the table.

 

Edit: It's been an interesting and fun thread so far.

 

On the contrary, you have been participating since page 1, and in the first 60 posts alone you contributed 20%.

 

If I have time this weekend I'll post some more stuff here. After reviewing so I know what I already said.

Well, we've had posts by 17 different people so far. Not too shabby for a thread topic that's about 4 weeks old. I'd like to be able to post and collect everyone's ideas into an unofficial free rules supplement by...Valentine's Day. :D

I'm plugging away at an essay about sexuality and superheroes, and will post it as soon as it's done.

 

Very good stuff coming, I especially like that comprehensive list of skills. More specifically on the kink side, a lot of "kink-related" activities require some degree of special training to perform safely. Even in just the relatively simple prospect of tying someone up (consensually, of course) there are all sorts of things to keep in mind so you don't cause the person being tied nerve damage/circulatory issues/etc. A simple Knowledge or Professional skill will suffice in almost all campaigns, I agree. Call it KS: BDSM or KS: Kink or whatever. But for a campaign that does go into that level of detail, pretty much any individual kink could be its own skill.

Re: The "Essay"(ESSE/UEH) Project(Warning: mature/controversial content contained her

 

In thinking about powers to use as the basis for romantic/sexual themed abilities, Change Environment would seem very useful in designing such abilities. Lowering a target's ability to resist (minuses to Ego rolls) is definitely a useful addition to a would-be seducer's arsenal. Using appropriate advantages and limitations, it could be a sort of subtle 'aura' around the character.

 

In another thread, Lucius had suggested using Change Environment to adjust a target's libido levels, which might be a valid use of that power. If you can raise or lower temperature, why not affecting the hormone levels associated with 'mating urges' in a target?

You just have to decide how many levels "libido" has--5 or 10 seems about right. Assume the "normal range"(outside of a club or other romantic/erotic setting(i.e., "mundane")) is 0 to 4(on a 0-10 scale(or maybe 0-11?)).

You can also use the optional "Stunning" CE effect from APG I to simulate giving someone a "knee-trembling" orgasm. If it's continuous, then they are lost in the throes of bliss, hovering on the edge of nirvana/madness.

Minuses to EGO or PRE rolls could work, too. "Impossible to resist"= -10 to rolls. You can either handwave power visibility issues or factor them into the cost. You could also use it in reverse, to impose negative interaction skill penalties on others, effectively making rivals seem repulsive by comparison.

Time Limit might be useful for some of the abilities you mention. Continuous orgasmic pleasure can only be sustained in the target for so long, maybe a skill check defines it somehow

 

I like the idea of making rivals less appealing. That's something I didn't consider.

Well, normally, 1 to 5 minutes is probably an awesomely long time to have an orgasm. 20 minutes to an hour would be pretty overwhelming to the target(they'd likely pass out and sleep for a long time). Hours to days (think some kind of Tantric Sex Trance(or curse)) would either lead to higher levels of consciousness, lower levels of depravity and primality, or madness.

It occurs to me that a wicked companion ability to Raise Libido would be Lower Sexual Inhibition. That could probably be simulated with a minus to EGO rolls, for purposes of resisting sexual impulses. If the target's libido rises at the same time that their inhibitions diminish, that plays right into the hands(or other body parts) of the seducer. At 10 levels of Raise Libido and -10 worth of Lower Inhibition, that's pretty much automatic.

This ability would have a very real chance of being addictive to the target, IMO.

I'll just note, for the record, that a few of these abilities have already appeared in published Hero Products, and I strongly encourage people to go out and buy those products if they haven't already. (Specifically, Champions Powers.)
