So, in light of a little bit of interest, I have created a small FAQ about the game to explain a few things. Here goes!
Voracious! A Furry RPG where you stuff your face! (FAQ)
What is ?Voracious!??
?Voracious!? Is a project made by me, Nuumi, for those who enjoy a moderately paced weight gain, food play or vore scenario. The idea of the game is that you start off with a small stomach capacity, and work with your friends to eat, fight, earn gold and ultimately pursue the greediest and/or fattest you can be. With perks and traits engineered for feeders, food play, vore enthusiasts, force feeding, playing a prey character, I hope to make Voracious! A game that can be enjoyable for everyone in the weight gain and stuffing community.
How does it play?
The two core concepts of the game are ?Stuffing Checks? and ?Contests?. A stuffing check is a dice roll that gets harder the more your character eats over their ?stomach capacity?, but doing so will cause their belly to stretch out for next time. A failure can result in vomiting, or even death by overeating, so know your limits but push push push! A contest is a dice roll with various modifiers including stats, bonuses from the situation and perk bonuses against another player or NPC to decide the outcome of a class. Having a cooking contest? Trying to beat someone up? Having a race? All of it is contests. Chances are, if it?s not eating, it?s a contest!
Can I run a game?
The short answer right now is no. The system of Voracious is slightly complicated in the fact that a GM needs a bespoke calculator to run the game. It is a half-way hybrid of a text adventure and a group RPG, bringing imagination and group interaction and flexibility to a mathematical system. This calculator currently runs on a badly thrown together excel macro sheet (I?m not a programmer, that?s all I know how to do) but I currently have someone making an executable, and after that and the GM?s guide are made, I will release the game to be run by others.
Can I get involved?
Yes! I?m always looking for new ideas and the best way to organise a group for Voracious is to approach me and let me know you?re intested. I tend to try and knit people around time zones, but given how I am a university student in England, my times can be sporadic, but I try to make sure I have at least a decent amount of time for my US and Australian friends! One again, get me on BubblegumMio on Furaffinity, Nuumi on F-list, or here on the WG forums and lets have a chat!
How long ?til the game is finished?
Voracious is a large project for me, and balancing has proved harder than I originally thought, but the skeleton of the game is getting stronger by the day, and after that, it?s just a matter of fleshing it out. Luckily, a lot of Voracious comes from the players imagination, so each game is guaranteed to be new and different to the last.
I don?t like Vore, is it essential?
Not at all! The game works just as fine with large amounts of food, so vore can be avoided if players are not interested. Obviously, if a group has mixed feelings, those less inclined to Vore may be asked to tolerate other players enjoyment of it, and enjoy their mixed fish banquet in the local restaurant rather than trying to devour a hapless rat man that made the wrong decision on who to mug.
If you guys have any more questions, feel free to ask!
