Coraline's Den
(Courtesan Card Game as has been run by Taki, running it for him this time to give him a turn to play. Takes place in a brothel in Acheron.)

The demon city of vice holds countless establishments catering to the physical needs of locals and tourists alike. Men and women of every sort come in on a daily basis, seeking pleasurable company to slake thirsts that cannot be sated by more conventional houses of pleasure. Men women and anything in between, folk of all shapes and all sizes came to Acheron's brothels, and the staff employed there were equally diverse. Some were there by choice, some because of debts and the city's convoluted laws, and some because of foolish mistakes that had cost them far far too much. Regardless, however, all who work Coraline's Den are obligated to serve as many customers as they can handle, seeing to their every whim lest they earn their employer's ire.


This game will run up to 4 players. Admission is based on GM discretion; players must be willing to respond at least once a day, listing the contents of their Builds, Guest and Advertiser areas with every post, and be able to write smut at the end of the round. As a GM, I will PM you your opening hands as well as the cards you receive.

As an additional note, you may write little blurbs suggesting the type of smut for a given customer when you play them. I may ignore these, but if you give me something to work off of I'll get it done faster probably. You can even invite other people's PCs if you contact them and they agree, at which point you could write smut with them instead. It's based in Acheron but is noncanon, so you can use existing characters if you want or come up with new ones, fluff should be minimal and can be flimsy. I don't know if I'm going to do this more than once or not, but if I do I might invite other people to it, for now all slots are likely taken unless someone has to drop out.

BASIC RULES:
Each player has their character (picture and brief history), along with their chosen Build, and a starting hand of 7 cards. The first player is determined randomly. Player order goes clockwise.

During your turn, you may take 1 Action of the following:

1.) Play a card as an Advertiser
Cards that are played as Advertisers are placed in an Advertiser Area located BELOW your character card. Advertisers do nothing other than add to the attributes of your courtesan of their color. Furthermore, when you play a card as an Advertiser, you must draw a card.

2.) Play a card as a Guest
Cards that are played as Guests are placed in a Guest Area ABOVE your character card.
Guests are more difficult to play in that you require a certain amount of attributes in order to play them; for example, if a red Merchant has a Requirement of 4, then you need 4 or more in your red Attribute to play him as a Guest. But when you do, they give you a positive effect, do not require you to draw additional cards, and also pay you at the end of the round by the amount specified. Because a Merchant’s payout value is 4, he will give you 4 points at the end of the round if he is still in your Guest Area. When playing a Guest, be sure to name the targets of their abilities.

3.) Introduce
Discard two cards from your hand, then draw two from the Deck.

4.) Exchange
Choose one of your Advertisers to return to your hand and exchange it with another card in your hand.

5.) Search
Draw one card from the deck. Generally, it is better to take an Advertisement action, but there are rare cases when increasing the number of cards in your hand is beneficial.

Rounds end when a player has no cards left in hand by the end of their turn. Players get -2 points for every card remaining in their hand; these represent customers who were not able to get in due to time constraints and have left disappointed. Players also get +1 point for every coin their Guests pay out; these represent satisfied customers who have paid good money. The winner is determined by the most points at the end of a round (for PbP purposes, smut is also written based on the guests one retains at the end of a round).

CHARACTER BUILDS:
These builds have different Attribute scores and abilities that either complement or counteract them. Red is for Elegance, Blue is for Liveliness, and Green is for Kinkiness.
ELEGANCE represents how beautiful or magnetic a girl is. LIVELINESS denotes her energy level and ability to handle strenuous activity, and KINKINESS determines her capability to cater to specific fetishes of certain clientele.

1.) “Gorgeous” build
Elegance: 5
Liveliness: 5
Kinkiness: 5
Start each round with 2 extra cards.
These girls are experts at every field. But because of these skills, or perhaps just their beauty on the surface, they receive more potential admirers in line--though not all are able to get in...


2.) “Versatile” build
Elegance: 3
Liveliness: 3
Kinkiness: 3
ONCE per round during your turn, you may add 3 to one Attribute. This lasts until the end of the round.
A Versatile girl is a chameleon, able to satisfy various kinds of clients as needed, even if she does not have a long-standing specialty.

3.) “Popular” build
Elegance: 2
Liveliness: 2
Kinkiness: 2
Once per turn, you may take an extra Advertisement action in addition to your chosen action.
Popular girls can easily rack up Advertisers--their reputation precedes them.

4.) “Alluring” build
Elegance: 3
Liveliness: 5
Kinkiness: 1
When you play a blue guest, after applying its effects, you may play an extra blue guest if they fulfill the requirements (use maximum twice per turn).
Alluring girls have high scores in Liveliness, meaning they have the energy level to keep multiple guests ‘entertained’ at one time--and know just how to get those groups over.

5.) “Convincing” build
Elegance: 5
Liveliness: 1
Kinkiness: 3
When you play a red guest, you may apply its effect twice (use maximum once per turn).
Convincing girls, elegant as they are, can convince one client to do a bit of extra work for them, which can go a long way.

6.) “Fetish” build
Elegance: 1
Liveliness: 3
Kinkiness: 5
When you draw a card after taking an Advertisement action, draw two extra cards. Then put two cards from your hand at the bottom of your draw deck.
These kinky girls know how to please a client based on what they are looking for.

CUSTOMER LIST
A special note on colors: For this game I'll be picking the "race" of various partners via colors. Red are demons, blue are some brand of mortals, and green are faeries. This won't always be perfectly consistent.


Merchant (2 per color in deck)
Requirement: 4
Payoff: 4

Target player draws two cards.
These wealthy travelers will pay good coin for the kind of girl they want, and with their connections and business savvy, can bring in extra customers to one girl or another.

Thief (2 per color in deck)
Requirement: 4
Payoff: 4
Advertisement: +1
Target player discards their newest customer.
Sneaky, shrewd swindlers and pickpockets who can make a client more worried about the contents of their wallet rather than the beautiful company they would otherwise enjoy that night.

Gangster (2 per color in deck)
Requirement: 5
Payoff: 3
Advertisement: +1
Look at target player's hand and discard one.
Experts at intimidation and less legal activities, and circulators of misinformation, they can steer a potential customer away from one line and into another.

Requirement: 2
Payoff: 2

These often wealthy individuals pay handsomely, and spread good words about you just as well.

While she is not one to pay particularly well as a Guest, she makes a great Advertiser amongst her circle of connections.

Payoff: 10
Advertisement: +1 to all
When you add this card as a Guest, play all cards in your hand as Guests regardless of requirement.

Euria

“Popular” build
Elegance: 2
Liveliness: 2
Kinkiness: 2

DG Character Sheet: http://www.legiaogeek.com/bbs/showpost.php?p=631045&postcount=175

Her obsession with treasure and interesting artifacts got Euria into trouble yet again during the nymph's visit to the demon city, when she came across a collector. Euria quickly found herself in trouble with the local law over what she insisted was a misunderstanding, but that didn't stop her from facing local justice. Becoming what was essentially the temporary slave of the one she'd "wronged", she was forced to work to pay back her debt, and being a nymph, it was perhaps natural that this brothel was chosen as the means for her to do so...

Re: Coraline's Den (Brothel Worker Card Game)

Not 100% sure how to play but I'll give it a try. And since my character in the CYOA game isn't going to be played, I could try her here!

Haro Tanako

“Alluring” build
Elegance: 3
Liveliness: 5
Kinkiness: 1

For this game, we'll subtract the futanari element if it is troublesome.

Haro's focus on elves has gotten her in trouble. Again. After a particularly long bender, she found she owed quite a lot of money for both the booze and the whores. And she'll earn that money back! By fucking! Yeah, that sounds good to Haro.

Re: Coraline's Den (Brothel Worker Card Game)

Avenie Silverwalt

2.) “Versatile” build
Elegance: 3
Liveliness: 3
Kinkiness: 3
ONCE per round during your turn, you may add 3 to one Attribute. This lasts until the end of the round.
A Versatile girl is a chameleon, able to satisfy various kinds of clients as needed, even if she does not have a long-standing specialty.

A former Badarian constable, Avenie was sent undercover to investigate a prostitution ring, only to find out that she was in over her head when she discovered its leader to be a particularly powerful demon--one that she could neither outsmart nor hide the truth from. It wasn't long before her play as a fake prostitute turned into the trials of a real one. The ringleader enslaved her and put her to work in Acheron. Over the course of only a month, her worries shifted from her job to that of mere survival in a city of debauchery.

Still, she didn't acquire her position without reason, and remains a rather convincing actress with a wide range of roles to play, hence her versatility. In a different life, she might have been a successful thespian of sorts.

These kinky girls know how to please a client based on what they are looking for.

The kitsune daughter of two adventurers who visited Acheron when it was still in the heart of ruined Artmirst. In some version of reality, she chose to earn her denarii as a worker in Coraline's den rather than as a blade for hire, and in the meantime to undo years of repressed sexuality by intentionally exploring each and every pleasurable act she had passed over in her home among the faeries.

Description: I'll edit this in later, along with DG character sheet.

Triel
“Gorgeous” build
Elegance: 5
Liveliness: 5
Kinkiness: 5

Most night elves gave up their worship of demons in ages past, but not all of them. Some were forced underground, their cults frowned upon... Triel was born into just such a cult, and quickly became a fervent believer. She soon became frustrated with the cult's methods, however... There were better ways to worship demons. More tangible ways. And so she made her way to Acheron to pay the demons their due respect in the most direct method possible.

Re: Coraline's Den (Brothel Worker Card Game)

Rolls for turn order are 3, 15, 20, 15, 13, the roll off resulting in 18 vs 19 for those 15s. That leaves the turn orders as Oormi (Hafnium) Triel (Tiffanian) Avenie (Takimaru) Pasha (BlueSlime) and Euria (Astarte)

Astarte's dice skills are solid as always!

We'll be going 2 rounds at 5 cards per hand, see how it goes. Hands have been dealt out. Haf may now make his first play.

RIP Red Noble. Playing Green Mercenary in the guest area because better late than never, I guess?

The summer faerie couldn't believe their luck. On a brothel visit in between contracts they'd stumbled upon the kitsune who'd been protected from their courtship by an overbearing mother. Better yet, the coin they'd earn from winning those bets back home would easily compensate the price of having her.

I'll play a Blue Cohort, then play a Blue Citizen targeting Hf 'cause he has the least cards in hand. Although that'll just take out dat Mercenary I believe.

Some customers split the price with a friend, or bring one along to 'save money'. These two thought Avenie looked familiar on the advertisement.
