The Glass Maker’s Dragon (Chuubo's)

Game NameThe Glass Maker’s Dragon (Chuubo's)
Game SystemOther Roleplaying Games
ThemeGrowing Up, Life and Death, Reality and Dream.
FlavourWhimsy, Horror, Pastoral
Plot SummaryOnce upon a time, a witch and a glass-maker made a dragon out of glass and taught it to hate the world. It raged and it would have destroyed everything; only, it shattered, instead.

Maybe it found some reason to love the world.

Maybe their hearts weren't really in it — not the glass-maker’s, not the witch’s.

Maybe it was just that the dragon was made of glass.


---


This is a Pastoral module campaign for the Chuubo's Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine RPG.

Come with me to a little town surrounded by the multicolored void. It sits in the middle of no true place, or nothingness, and it is circled by its sun.

It is a peaceful town. It’s sleepy.

It’s practically bucolic.

It’s not involved in the carnival of great dreams and bloody events that Creation so frequently becomes.

Come and be...

The Wishing Boy, Chuubo, if you want...
• ...to make precious memories with your friends.
• ...to be central and important.
• ...to be a little laid-back, ordinary, and passive.
(or are you the girl variant, Shokyou, the Wishing Girl?)

The Best Friend, Seizhi Schwan, if you want...
• ...to stress out a lot.
• ...to see the wishes in a person’s heart.
• ...to have weird powers that practically ignore most defenses.
(or are you the girl variant Suzy Schwan, instead?)

Nightmares’ Angel, Leonardo de Montreal, if you want...
• ...to be arrogant and morally ambiguous.
• ...to have a lot of backstory.
• ...to practice extraordinary Science!
(or are you the girl variant Dulcinea de Montreal, instead?)

The Troublemaker, Rinley Yatskaya, if you want...
• ...to tell stories and be goofy.
• ...to talk to cats.
• ...to be a creature out of fable and tall tales.
(or are you the boy variant, also named Rinley?)

The Prodigy, Natalia Koutolika, if you want...
• ...to be emo, yet heroic.
• ...to have “mad skills.”
• ...to be new in Town.
(or are you the boy variant Antony Yuryevich, instead?)

The Child of the Sun, Jasper Irinka, if you want...
• ...to be a confused alien visitor to the human world.
• ...to be sweet and sunny.
• ...to have weird alien limbs and tendrils sometimes.
• ...to be at the center of a lot of drama and spiri-tual stuff.
(or are you the boy variant Raven Irinka, instead?)

The Angel of Fortitude, Entropy II, if you want...
• ...to be comparatively mature and established.
• ...to be freaky and scary.
• ...to be a sorrowful and numinous being.
(or are you the girl variant, Attaris II, instead?)

The Dream-Witch, Miramie Mesmer, if you want...
• ...to be a central figure in the campaign, but not the world.
• ...to run a little shop.
• ...to be extremely dangerous when provoked.
• ...to have taken over your life from someone else—someone evil.
(or are you the boy variant, Reynard Mesmer, instead?)

I never thought I'd get the opportunity to play Chuubo's, so I have to follow through here for sure!

My first preference would be The Dream-Witch, Miramie Mesmer.

If I need to pick a second preference , let's say The Best Friend, Seizhi Schwan.

Well, look their lifepaths and see if one sticks out or if you are drawn to a variant version of either.

Oh, Miramie's definitely my preference based on the preamble provided here. I just thought it might be prudent to offer a backup in case there's contest for the same characters.

So players need the campaign book as well in order to play?

My first choice would be for the best friend Seizhi Schwan
Second and third choices would be Chubbo himself or Rinley Yatskaya
I'm going to give the life paths a quick look over and try and figure out how I feel about the alternatives.

I'd be interested in giving this a try if you are open to completely new players. What posting rate are you looking for?
The sun/Raven boy version interested me.

Same.

The Dream-Witch and the Nightmares' Angel are the roles that intrigue me most.

Yes, the campaign book is surprisingly almost entirely for the players. Chuubo's everybody!

You do however only need to read the chapters relevant to your character, so roughly one eighth of the book or less!

Newbies are fine as long as you have access to the books. I'm looking for like 3-5 posts a week or so? Not too much but not too slow. Pbp being what it is.

As of right now I'd go:

HotsuSama as the Dream Witch
Undead Puppy as the Wishing Boy (we need him!)
Anael as the Child of the Sun
Cap Ut as Nightmares' Angel

But please, read the lifepaths and tell me what you think. I'll submit players to the site for approval soon.

Oof, um, I won't manage that right now. I'll be in the realm of once a week, maybe twice on occasion but I wouldn't even take that as a given. If that's not in line with what you want for the game, I understand but better to clear the air on that now either way.

Once a week? Yeah, this is a slower game to begin with, once a week is a bit brutal. I usually say "once a day, not counting weekends" which averages to 5 a week. Maybe thats a big ask. The advantage of pbp was that it fits around your schedule. Hopefully you'd be able to 10-15 minutes of free time to post more than once every 168 hours.

How is other's availability?

I should be able to keep a pace of 3 posts a week, but I can't promise more than that.

Okay. Can we try and push for 3 per week commitment?

It's not really a big ask in a general sense for those able to commit. But I'm already involved in a few other games on site and have recently found myself with less free time for posting than previous at the moment. So while I could fit in check-ins and updates once or twice a week, anything beyond that might be overextending myself.

I'd rather not inadvertently slow up your game because I tried to bite off more than I can chew. So it's tough to say but I'll be withdrawing my application for involvement. I'm still interested in seeing how this plays out though, so I'll try to read along as much as able.
