Sex and Stats
« on: March 04, 2014, 12:16:07 AM »
I notice no sex moves. Probably makes sense for the politics and the time and the setting, but it seems oddly missing in a *W hack. Is anything going to replace it?

Relatedly, I'm not a fan of the stat names for the politics and the time and the setting... particularly Hot and Weird. I'm not going to embarrass myself by trying to come up with setting-appropriate synonyms, but they stand out and stick badly in my eye.

Mischa

Isn't _Draw someone out_ a sex move as well?

The stats jumped at me as well, but I assumed they were temporary.

I actually like the lack of sex moves/character "specials". It's another thing that differentiates the game from AW, gives it a different flavor. Deciding what actions are mechanical and what are purely fictional is an important feature in shaping the tone

But without sex moves, how can this game properly reflect shows like The Sexy Dark Ages? ;)
