okay, so let me be the first to bring something up. :D before that, a brief introduction is in order. :) i'm dan, also known as ferret (i'll be spying on the rpg with my main lj account ferretclaw. ;) i'm a ninteen-year-old canadian who likes romantic, candle-lit dinners and walks on the beach (haha!). i've been a fan of sku for a while now (it's currently my favorite anime series), starting with the show and movie, which i bought about a year ago, i think. i managed to see the utena musical shortly after, and i managed to get a copy of it this summer. i bought all five volumes of the utena manga from a guy in japan last month and am currently reading it (i can read japanese...comprehending is a different story). my favorite character is nanami (shameless plug! shameless plug!). other characters i like are kozue, shiori, and akio. (people constantly mock me for liking the characters that everyone else hates.) this will be my first sku rpg (but not my first rpg, mind you :P), so i was just wondering how a few things are going to be worked. that said...
first, to what degree of role playing is this? i've been involved in something that's not quite role playing (where you basically get to control everyone, but you can only speak a certain character's mind) and also hardcore role playing (where you basically can't even mention another character's name without getting in trouble). i was just wondering where in between there will this rpg be...if that makes any sense.
which brings me to my second thought: duels. i'm just trying to invision how this'd work...i know it could, but not without some degree of difficulty. even in realtime, it'd still be difficult.
a: utena lunges.
b: saionji dodges. saionji lunges.
a: utena dodges. utena goes for the kill.
b: saionji beats utena instead.
a: "noooo, himemiyaaaaaa," utena shouts while falling to her knees in defeat.
...so...yeah. also, is it going to be predetermined who'll win the duel (assuming we even have duels, of course)? if so, how? since this is my first sku rpg, any enlightenment regarding any this would be helpful. thanks, everyone. i can't wait to get this thing started. :)
