You're a maid, who has been employed by the Mitsubayashi family for years. You are also a human-looking robot with clearly artificial ears and sockets in your back, who was originally created to be an assassin. Your fellow maid, Kasu-chan, often talks about how she's never going to find true love. Also, she's an undercover detective investigating the master's family - but she doesn't want you to know that.
Oh, and your master? He's a four year old otaku who refuses to do anything beyond his own pace.
Right after you finish making breakfast, there's a flash flood and the mansion is suddenly an island. Unfortunately, today is the day the master picks up the latest DVDs from Akihabara, so you've got to figure out a way to get him there and back before lunchtime.
Just another day in the life of a maid!
Maid RPG is a very light anime-styled role-playing game. It's very easy to learn, with a very basic rules system, intricate random character generation, tables upon tables of random costumes and events. You can sit down with the system for the first time and be playing within fifteen minutes.
And we're going to be playing it over IRC!
HOW IS THIS GOING TO WORK, SIMON
I'm glad you asked, me!
I'll be running sessions of this game whenever I'm free, and people are available on IRC. At the moment, it looks like I'll be completely free all day on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, some weekends, and most nights throughout the week. I run on Australian Easten Standard Time, however, so remember your conversions!
Three or four people will be in each game, no more. Times and groups can be scheduled in this thread.
We've already had a phenomenal response in the IRC, leading to the creation of the episodic harem-style show, Oh No! Phalla Palace!
, which you can see below.
So, post in the thread if you're interested in playing! I'm happy to answer any questions you may have.
9pm EST, Tuesday the 11th of May - Maid Board Game: Maiden Rangers of Love and Justice
PST players: please let me know if you would like a game on Wednesday, and I will run a session for your specific time zone.
