I changed the word, not because of taboo, but because it seemed to be turning up on an awful lot of search queries before. There were an inordinately large number of hits on the page (isolated, I might add, with no nearby fetching of the index), and I decided to remove my site from such a connection.

This is not to imply any moral stance, I'd just rather the material were accessed by persons interested in gaming, rather than other, er, sordid activities. If you want to discuss this editorial policy, mail me.

Prost*tute Vocation

(Physical Trait)

SEC 1-4, 2 at start

My new campaign will be extremely gritty, and begin in a very urban setting.Though not necessarily confined to these types of areas, a Vocation I immediately thought of was (pardon my dirty mind)...

From crafty courtesan to gigolo to alley-whore, this Vocation encompasses all who seek to pay their life's wage with their bodies-- certain parts of their bodies, in fact. In general, prost*tutes are disdained by every class-- but their services are used by members of every class (funny, that...). The prost*tute's skills are oriented towards attracting customers, and these can also be useful in the gaining of information. When playing such a persona, some words and phrases to keep in mind are: turning tricks, "special" skills, divorce mind from body, pimps, madams, no taboos, oldest profession, money.

* New K/S Area, see below.

New K/S Area:

Dancing: This K/S covers the basics of body movement, usually (but not necessarily) accompanied by music. Those possessing it are able to move their bodies rhythmically without making themselves look foolish (unlike the author). It has five Sub-Areas:

  1. Court Dancing
  2. Artistic Dancing
  3. Exotic/Erotic
  4. Festive
  5. Foreign

This K/S uses the average of the PMSpd and PNPow ATTRIBUTES as a base.
