  • Hellhound & Orchid: Chapter 1


    The Keisei mafia family have a lot of business in a lot of places. That includes far flung countries like Coal. When a no good tyrant decides that he doesn't need to pay his dues to the Keisei, The Prince decides that it is about time she pays him a visit, personally. To take down a dog she calls a dog, the Hellhound of the Keisei. Together, Ranko and Ken travel with Ranko's girls to meet a man named Tong and try to talk some sense into him. No surprise, it leads to bloodshed.

    The Orchid - Ranko
    The Hellhound - Ken

    Note: A lot of 'extra mechanical activities' happened in this thread. Apologies in advance.

    Claimed and rated.
    I get the vague sense that the ‘damage’ calculations, though simple on the face of it, might end up requiring an annoying amount of record keeping.
    That's not fair of me to put there since most of the stuff done in the thread wasn't related to damage. Even though I'm happy to crunch numbers and enjoy it when people respect the mechanics of Engi, for this thread I would have been pretty okay just accepting whatever made sense for the story. Anyway, after some pondering and editing, here's my rundown:

    I liked: World building, characterization, NPC handling, early themes/symbolism, going the distance

    I didn’t like:
    Repetition, shallow and clichéd conflict, not actually going any distance

    Three points, one for jutsu, mostly for effort.

      Interesting, I have to say I agree with your review. I guess we both got a bit excited to flex out the gang lists that our characters hadn't used yet when we started this thread, then we didn't make the best use of it. lol

      Either way, thanks for the rating.
      I'll take +2 tactics and Catch.
      Katashi will take +2 speed.

        Appreciate your rating, as always. Here's a bunch of math - - I haven't edited my character sheet yet, but I'll get to it eventually. It's a lot

        Ranko will spend her jutsu point on "Pack Mule" to give all her retainers an inventory of 8 Weapon Points.

        Mayuko gains 2 points (one less than her Leader) and puts them both into Control (bringing her total to 14). She spends her WP on

        Hallucinogenic Poison [2] (moved down from Ranko's Inventory)
        Gangster's Knuckles [2 "Hand Weapons"]
        Antidotes [3]
        Small Blade (A knife) [1]

        Nagisa gains 1 point (being technically an 'additional beast') and 1 additional point granted by Ranko. She spends one point on the first half of Gate 2. She spends one point on Speed, bringing her to 11 +9 = 20.

        Her WP looks like this:

        Gangster's Knuckles [2] (moved down from Ranko's Inventory)
        Restraints (Handcuffs) [2]
        Limb Armor (Arms) [2]
        Limb Armor (Legs) [2]

        Juri gains 1 point, and 1 point from Ranko. She learns Stage 2 Mercenary's List: Steady Mind I. She takes one point in stamina for a total of 13 +9 = 22.

        Her WP looks like this:

        Katana [Large Sword 3] (moved down from Ranko's Inventory)
        Wakizashi [Medium Blade 2]
        Limb Armor (Arms) [2]
        Small Blade (Dagger) [1]

        This frees up 7 WP for Ranko, who buys a Breathing App [1], Fancy Glasses (Zoom 1 + NVG 2) and Coats [1] her Wakizashi in Hal. Poison [2].
