Hi, /a/, /tg/ here.
I'm currently making a roleplaying system hack to make and play your own adventures in the vein of Mahouka, Rakudai Kishi, Asterisk and shows of the same style.
Would you be interested in me sharing it when it's done?
What would you want to feature in such a thing if you like the idea?
I'm actually fairly interested. But since you don't seem to have even started, what would your ETA be? 1 month? 5 months? a year?
What systems do you play to borrow from, if any?
I do have a framework, it's just mostly disjointed notes at this point.
I'm planning to do it using Fate Core with some additional bells and whistles, maybe something borrowed from the Powered By The Apocalypse line of rpgs, so not overmuch tinkering depth, but enough to accommodate a variety of snowflakes if required.
I was going to do random tables to generate schools, locales, opponents and powers in case imagination needs a boost.
So, all in all, maybe 1-2 months until it's a fully playable v0.9? And play testable before that since I am not really making a system engine from scratch, just making a focussed supplement.

How about fuck off and make it, then someone might like it if its good, which it likely won't be.
This isn't reddit, you're not getting upvotes for this.
To be honest, I just looked up a sufficiently LNish picture on safebooru under the "original art" tag. Is the elf from something?
As I said, I would like to ask /a about what sort of options or features it would like to see in such a thing, before setting out to plan it in earnest, trimming the unneeded parts.
(Also, to be honest, I do know about reddit, but am unsure what upvotes are. I also do not give much of a fuck about the site, I never could get into the interface layout, really.)
Watching Rakudai and the banter between those duelling shows is what led me to believe there are enough fans of the genre that the RP system might interest people.
Or am I reading this incorrectly? What exactly do you imply?
If you want my honest input, I don't have the time or patience for pen&paper/tabletop RPGs. I would be more interested if you were designing an actual playable game in that vein.
It was mostly just shitposting. That said, I'm interested. I've been meaning to at some point make an effort to lurk on /tg/ and this could be a nice bridge to get there.
I'm not good enough at scripting unless you want that to be a VN, and I kinda feel that VN format would stifle the genre instead of making people be able to have their own adventures, have "their own" fun, for the lack of better term. (And live through their own power fantasies, yeah. Not somebody else's.)
Besides, the only artist I know is a /d/-tier futamonger dickwaffle who cannot draw a cute girl to save his life. Fantasy girls, especially dark fantasy — sure. Cure LNsh girls — naaah.
I didn't pay enough attention to tell the difference. And yes, come on in, you'd probably find an anime themed quest to your liking to acclimate.
I'd like to see solid gameplay mechanics that are acutally fun and engaging, but that's probably too much to ask from /tg/ or any tabletop rpg player for that matter. I had to stop going to that board, mostly because I was sick of seeing I'm gonna make a game about X give me idea" threads that would get hundreds of replies but then op would never deliver because no one on /tg/ actually appreciates or understands how to make a playable game.
Features, not systems. I can run the game tomorrow if I wish, if get enough players. I am basically going to make a handbook full of locales, items and shit so that you have a fleshed out setting and a toolkit to make your own, and use Fate for the actual task resolutions.
Fate is, thankfully, really really modular.
Fate is quite solid in the engaging conflict mechanics department unless you like excessive tinkering and build-finetuning (which, for a game about a group of snowflakes, is a good point since no one would get to dominate the spotlight excessively);
Thanks for the art, where it's from?
I'm sort of the same. I have dreams of making a futa-focused ero-RPG, but I am not artistically inclined in the least, even if I could do the rest of the work.
Not sure honestly, I just grabbed it from the archive because it's thread-relevant. The two characters are Kirin from Asterisk and Isla from Plastic Memories though, if you want to search for it.
Yes, but you can't pick up a supplement for either of those and run it, because no such thing exists. If you have knowledge of the system "Adeptus Evangelion", which is the adaption of Dark Heresy d100 roll-under rules for biomecha vs kaiju combat, you can, too, run Eva in, say, GURPS with some sort of GURPS Mecha supplement. And on the other hand you have a specifically made thing with a base setting, some statted enemies, and somewhat tailored mechanics, that you just take and go. Do you see where I am going with this?
the number one rule for tabletop rpgs is that they're all shit. the number two rule is that ones claiming to be general purpose or adaptable for anything are extra shit.
My... First thread? As far as I know this is my first thread on the subject. I did hijack a thread about Chuunibyou about a year ago by telling people about a plan to make a new world of darkness thing about reality and delusion in the vein of Chuu2, BlackRock Shooter and Changeling: the Dreaming. Unfortunately, that project is kinda stalled due to lack of inspiration on the matter. But that was long ago enough that I am pretty sure nobody much remembered that.
So, of what first thread do you speak?
I guess it is a sort of hivemind then? More reason for me to do this thing.
I don't really need advice on systems though, so it wasn't me.
So, would you want some sort of Social Link system or harem management systems?
I like the idea, but I think the whole /tg/ aspect of this is going to be kind of a weakness rather than a strength since let's be real; battle harem highshool isn't really something most of us feel comfortable 'getting into' other than in private.
When you look at the target audience, and the way these things work, everyone is going to be "holding back" to avoid things getting awkward; because at the end of the day these really are SI/wish fulfillment etc... INDIVIDUAL experiences.
That being said, I think some kind of generic anime highschool battle harem (npc companions or something that have little convo arcs) is something I'm relatively surprised hasn't been pitched as an MMO yet.
I'd probably give that a shot, I don't know if I would microtransact on it, but I think some medium like that would be more accessible and successful.
I will consider this
However, this is aimed to be primarily a play by Internet thing and.there is a lot less reservation then.
I might devote a paragraph or two to "don't be scared to get into character".
THat's cool, I always was more interested in the mysterious powerful loli mentor types in those shows than MC anyways, and I guess /tg/ elements are more likely to facilitate that than anyone ever developing anything THAT niche.
