Teach me about Tumblr roleplays!

Journal Entry: Fri May 22, 2015, 7:26 AM
So getting back into the Torei RPG system, I've been looking at the various environments for playing the game.  There are a lot of forum sites that support erotic roleplay (elliquiy, f-list, etc), but they tend to be rather more walled off to the public than I'd like, and the technology tends to be crufty old BBcode-like systems.  I've tried chat play before, but again the technology is old and weird or hard to get to for everybody on all devices.

But there seems to be a large community of tumblr roleplayers that use the specific way tumblr works to their advantage.  Each character sets up a new tumblr blog (either under the player's main account, or in a new one to keep the dash feed separate).  You end up reblogging each other and occasionally trimming quoted matter to hold the conversation and play out the scene, which ends up preserving history rather well.

And tumblr supports NSFW blogs and RSS feeds and generally makes the whole endeavour more searchable and available.

In addition, it seems that posts get a difficult-to-predict integer ID, so for example planet-torei.tumblr.com/post/1… has the ID of 119509910314 which could be used to seed a random number generator for dice rolls, guaranteeing that everybody can verify a roll made by a given post.  I've been looking at maybe writing a tumblr API client to do this automatically as a sort of bot, or maybe a simple javascript page for determining from a post URL what the roll should be.

But historically it seems nobody plays with rules, preferring instead to treat it as a collaborative writing exercise (mainly for fanfiction).  Does anyone reading this have any experience with tumblr RP and how best to do it?  I've read through all of rpprotips.tumblr.com/archive looking for advice, and a lot of it seems to be geared toward people agreeing ahead of time how to play out a scene together, and then doing it.  Is there anything I should know about setting up the main RP aggregation tumblr?  Anyone have any better ideas?

Torei RPG Update

Tue May 19, 2015, 3:36 PM
The folks over at game-icons.net released versions of their vector icons that were easier to style, so I updated the copy of bootstrap I had used to make the thing and freshened up the look a bit.  Unfortunately, asstr.org recently added some security measures that break images in data: urls, and one of my goals had been that this document should be a single HTML file with everything you need (fonts, images, css, javascript, etc).  The tool I'm using does this via data: urls, so I needed new hosting.  

So I figured this document is pretty tame (leave the risqué stuff up to the GM and players, eh?) and put a copy up on my github pages site at gospodinp.github.io/

Here's an example of what it looks like, now:

Now I should get back to finishing the group-NPC rules and the bits of explanatory text!

Flag for Kinky People in Vanilla Relationships by GospodinP
Flag for Kinky People in Vanilla Relationships
This is my rendition of a “pride flag” representing kinky people who are in vanilla relationships.

The imagery is a modification of the “black and blue with love” motif of the Leather Pride flag. The top half of the flag is filled with a field of the colour “vanilla”, and the white band in the center forms a fracture line across the heart, which is larger and more central. The fracture line is formed so that the bottom fragment takes the shape of a jagged and pointed heart itself.

I of course have my own reasons for the choices I made in this design, but I will take a page from Tony DeBlase and leave the specifics up to the viewer for now.

Here is my rationale for the design:



The flag is meant to signify the double-consciousness that I personally experience.  The Leather Pride flag's motif of the heart (love) and the black and blue stripes (bruising) is a part that I have pushed down in my own identity and kept private.  The greatest force for this submerging of self is the love I have for my vanilla spouse.  Thus the softer curves of the heart go on top, in a field of vanilla.  The white line suggests a heartbeat, but fractures the heart in two.  The more jagged piece lives underwater, amidst the trappings of BDSM.

The fracture line is white, perhaps signifying some ideal of purity or posturing of prudishness that can be used to conceal the kinky heart.  The heart has been broken, but both pieces continue to beat on in their own way.  The whole could be mended, but for that to happen the rest of the situation would need to change.  The field of the flag would need to be rewritten.

A surprise, and thank you!

I want to thank whichever anonymous donor gave me 3 months of premium membership.  I will endeavor to post more fiction to make best use of this.  Many thanks!

I use DA primarily to develop the sci-fi BDSM setting of Torei :icontoreans::
Your First Trip to Torei
Your first view of Torei from space is a bit of a disappointment, all told.  You suppose you've seen realistic images before, but the picture of the planet in everyone's heads is the stylized diagram used for their celestial ensign: a grey globe circled by a green sash at the equator, black ziggurats sprouting clouds from the poles.
Whenever someone spots the image above a starport berth, wild tales fill the corridors and canteens.  The Toreans have no shipyards of their own, and the sight of their flag on a second-hand haulier or cruise vessel is often the only hint that anything may be different within.  You always hear one or two maintenance techs swearing oaths that they serviced it and saw a brothel of chattel slaves inside, or customs clerks confiding that one entry on the manifest is code for human cargo.
In the years you've been starfaring, you began to think of the planet itself as a bit of a tall tale in its own right.  That's why you'r

and there are more explicit descriptions of the setting in:
Torei FAQWhat follows is a list of questions that have actually been asked about Torei. These questions come from the comments section of the Toreans DA group, comments on individual deviations, and private queries to Gospodin.
The answers come from the Torean deviations themselves, or occasionally from the musings of Gospodin or another contributor.
What is Torei?
Torei is a science fiction setting for BDSM literature and art.
How do I join in?
All you need to do is create art or literature set on Torei.
Isn't there a lot I need to read and learn first?
No, you don't have to read anything.
That is, if you like, go right ahead. But no one should feel constrained by what has come before. The goal is for us to inspire each other, not to fuss about details!
But I do wa
A Blagger's History of Torei

There’s a lot of talk about Torei, lately. You hear folks chatting about it in hushed tones, wondering if what other folks say is true. People want to know how to get there, how safe you are once you get there, and would you get in trouble when you come back. You see people scowling angrily about Torei’s human rights problems, but those same people are the ones who have copies of Torean Love Slave hidden away someplace private.
But most of all, people want to know how such a place could have existed all this time. How could human life have developed on this isolated planet in the middle of nowhere while we were busy inventing intergalactic ships and coating every inhabitable surface of the Milky Way with our culture? We’ve become so used to human life being the only sapient intelligence on Earth-like worlds. So why, then, is Torean culture so…alien to us?
Well if you listen to me closely, I will te
Advice for writing Torei talesAll right, so you’re a writer or a visual artist who is interested in Torei, and wants to get involved. You’re a little bit daunted by , but the fiction or the images captured your imagination and you want to join in. Welcome!
I hope in this document to help you understand what Torei is all about without drowning you in dense history. So let’s start within the nutshell:Torei is a far-distant planet in a far-distant future, and feels like Aeon Flux meets Gor.If you’ve never heard of one or both of these, you might think “Oh, I guess I should wait until I’m more familiar with those things.” Please don’t feel intimidated by the references! It’s just shorthand for people who do know what they are. Here’s all you need to know:
What’s Aeon Flux?
Aeon Flux was a rather dark and slightly kinky sci-fi cartoon series that appeared on MTV’s Liquid Tele

I'm also working on an RPG set on Torei: Help me Make a Torean RPG: Make Characters!I’ve been re-reading the old journal entry at and working on a system that lets us tell interesting Torean stories. In studying Vincent Baker’s Dogs in the Vineyard I have come to understand that much of the power of its rules is how carefully they were tailored for the situations that occur in his setting. I’d like to produce something as carefully tailored to Torei as his game was to 19th century Utah.
To help me, I’d like you folks to create characters. I’m still convinced that Dogs has the best conflict resolution system for stories like these, and I’ll be starting with a few pieces of its basic character generation process. This will help us explore what other elements should take focus in the rules.
How to make a character
What sort of character would you want to play on Torei? Do you want to be a man of status with a harem of slaves, or a lowly man with only
