Emperor Syndrome: The Beginning (WIP)

THE GAME HAS A TITLE NOW!

Genres: modern, modern fantasy (elf path), delinquents, shounen, BL
I’ve begun work on my first game EMPEROR SYNDROME: THE BEGINNING.
for more info see below!

I am extremely inspired by K Project, High and Low, Crows Zero and Tokyo Revengers. I HAD to create this!

I have no clue how many chapters this will be, I just know that its going to be fucking massive. Enjoy the development and get jumped into the gang early!

Still deciding on a logo and flag for Immortal Roses

More info will be added here soon!

Currently it’s only the prologue and the first part of chapter one but I plan on updating weekly!

To play the demo, go here NEW LINK UPDATED: https://dashingdon.com/play/rosefemboyqueen/emperor-syndrome-the-beginning/mygame/

Its extremely short but I hope you enjoy what little there is!

Elf path and Your Girlfriend coming soon!

Immortal Roses is the toughest high school gang around, their leader, known as Kaya is undefeated in battle. Regardless, their rivals are always trying to take a piece of their territory, what happens when a hopeful new recruit enters the fray? It’s up to you to hold the group together when certain secrets threaten to tear it apart, or stand by and watch it fall in order to take power for yourself.

Its been six months since Lucky Cat attacked the temple base of Immortal Roses or MoRo, and four months since Lovely Dolls killed Snow Bunny. After a visit to your school by the gang to…chat with you about certain things, you find yourself stumbling upon the temple while you and your girlfriend/boyfriend are running from Lucky Cat members. Kaya sees potential in you, but you’ve never been confident in your fighting ability. But let’s make it clear, you LOVE to fight, your lack of confidence comes from how epic your girlfriend/boyfriend is in outshining you in a battle, you’ve fallen so low, those asshole fourth years torment you nonstop.

The gang takes you into the fold regardless.

Juggle school life during your third year at Homura, known to students as Homra, High School and the thrill of knowing the gang has your back through tough times and good.

Are you ride or die?

There will be two WIP threads. This one and an adult one for the adult content.

As you can see the main gang doesn’t have a name yet, any suggestions after seeing the gang members?

  • Play as male or trans male (coming soon)

  • Gay or Bi (Hetero option coming waaaaaaay later)

(All non-BL romance scenes will be fade to black for my own personal comfort zone reasons)

  • Various ROs though locking in with any of them is not possible in the first game.

  • Experience a world of delinquent gang life and beyond

  • Fight for your friends or betray them!

  • Befriend different characters, but be careful who you trust, you never know who is going to stab you in the back.

  • Learn the secrets of Ashinaka City and more!

  • Sell out to the cops! But beware.

  • Fun times, lies and murder await! And gang wars! Lots of gang wars!

  • Two different paths! Human and Elf! The elf gameplay is unique in that elves don’t have any special abilities unless they’re in a gang, the gang symbol tattoo they receive giving them their aura and powers!

Immortal Roses Members

Gang Leader: Known as the Silent Rose Emperor
image
Name: Utanari Kasayami (call him this and die)

Nickname: Kaya
Bio: Kaya is silent most days, he doesn’t like to talk unless he absolutely has to. He spends most of his time with his brothers and The Grendel. The gang is more than just a collection of his friends to him, they are like family. He attends an alternate high school in the heart of the city. His past is checkered and if someone brings it up he gets visibly uncomfortable and usually silences them with a swift punch to the gut. Can usually be seen in six to ten inch steel heeled stilettos. He owns a flip phone and regularly gets his nails done in elaborate styles.

In the elf path Kaya is more outspoken and opinionated, he fights for elven delinquents to have a brighter future and to hopefully bring back the magic that was lost when humans stole it from the entire species. He is more a revolutionary leader and you can stand by his side, or throw him to his death.

Three paths, friendship, RO and enemy

Second In Command: Known as The Silent Rose Advisor

Name: Akari Atsushi

Nickname: The Grendel

Bio: He has been by Kaya’s side since the start of the gang. They went to elementary school together and became fast friends after beating up a group of students who saw fit to attack their classmate and future fellow gang member, Bells. The Grendel is a kind hearted person but he doesn’t let things go easily and will viciously hunt someone down if they even think about wronging the gang, The Grendel puts the gang before his own life and would die for it and Kaya. He enjoys mountain biking.

In the elf path, The Grendel gained his gang name due to his immense strength and love of drinking the blood of his enemies. He stands by Kaya in all things, but can be convinced otherwise.

Future RO

First Squad Captain: Known as The Head Silent Rose Knight

image

Name: Utanari Kayama

Nickname: Dragonfly (dragonfly earring. Dragonfly tattoos up both arms)

Bio: He is Kaya and Tofuyu’s older brother, he has a major crush on Hihori, whom hates his guts. He grew up in a the foster system in the human path, which makes him prone to violent outbursts.

First Squad Vice Captain: Known as the Silent Rose Knight Of First

Name: Yayui Hiyori

Nickname: Hihori

His choice haunts him to this day, Wana loved him in return, and gave up his life to Tofuyu to stop Emime from killing a severely wounded Ak47. Tofuyu is a very closed off person who doesn’t trust anyone except the gang. He collects wines.

He is an RO, but romancing him will be extremely difficult in either path.

Fourth Squad Captain: The Head Silent Rose Knight Of Fourth

Name: Batamu Kaneni

Originally opposed to violence, he joined the gang after an impassioned speech by Kaya swayed him when his house was the subject of a drive by shooting by a local gang in the area.

How do you feel about Snow Bunny’s death scene? About Baby Doe?

I’m curious why the boyfriend and girlfriend options have different personalities? Seems odd that I would need to be bi to not be interested in someone who is possessive…

Yay a bl story, you don’t encounter that everyday, question is the boyfriend a yandere (pls be a yandere) oh and author, mc is totally not going to end up as some crybaby like that blonde dude in Tokyo revengers

It might be better to just say ‘Your Gang’ instead of ‘Insert Gang Name Here’, which is a little awkward in my opinion.

1 Like

But it’s not your gang, you don’t run it. Kaya does. It was just a placeholder, the gang has a name now, Immortal Roses!

The girlfriend is possessive in her own way.

They have different personalities because they are two different people, their description in the cut is a fake out~ you’ll have to wait and see to find out how they really are!

The boyfriend is a yandere yes, but a major daddy dom yandere, which doesn’t get fully explored until the next book.

Shy Mc will have issues, but shy Mc is basically my Takemitchy coping mechanism. They’ll get better and stronger as the books progress. All the Mc personalities will.

I see. Still, even if you don’t run a gang, if you belong to it it isn’t wrong to say it is ‘your gang’ in a sense.

Also, you can just quote or use @ if you want to reply to multiple people. You don’t have to make four posts in a row.

It’s six am, I just woke up. ‘Main Gang’ was also a placeholder idea, but I decided against it.

It looks like a great concept! I’m a little disappointed that there isn’t an option to play as a girl, but it’s your story to tell. Good luck with it!

3 Likes

Playing as a girl will come waaaaay later as this is mainly a BL game.

I think I’ll work on the girl path eventually though so don’t worry. Though I’m not a fan of typical harem situations or shojo, that would most likely be the path with a girl and the guys. I will add female love interests when I do the girl path too, because yuri is the bomb.

edit: The girl path will be DLC and shorter than the boy path because I’m not really all that comfortable with it, however I want to appeal to a wider audience.

I fixed the relationship tab for you.

*if kayahmet = false
    *stat_chart
        text Kaya [b]The Leader[/b]
            Status: You have not yet met the infamous gang leader
*if kayahmet = true
    *stat_chart
         text Kaya [b]The Leader[/b]

Or you can do it like this to clean up the code.

*stat_chart
    text Kaya [b]The Leader[/b]
*if kayahmet = false
    Status: You have not yet met the infamous gang leader
*if kayahmet = true
    You have met the infamous gang leader

Or.

*stat_chart
    text Kaya [b]The Leader[/b]
*if kayahmet = false
    Status: You have not yet met the infamous gang leader
*else
    Text here.
    *goto

There were some indentation issues, and you need a variable right after the text in stat_chart instead of the bold words.

Nice concept I look forward to more update but I would like to see more of the cinematic character engagement in terms of fighting abilities because I picked this from your point and I quote “you’ve never been confident in your fighting ability.”.
Please let’s see more of the character in that perspective even if he had to develop himself to that level over the course of the storyline. A deliquent that’s tough with no fighting skills is no fun. Imagine takimichi in Tokyo Revengers killing his fighting abilities make it a little less fun.
Just an opinion would like to hear what others have to say about this.

Omg thank you! Though the status text isn’t showing up sadly.

@Fawaz_Ibrahim Things have just started. MC will be fighting alongside their partner against Lucky Cat. Unlike Takemitchy, MC idolizes the gang life and wants to be part of it, they just lack confidence. Ruthless MC pretends to have confidence right off the bat, Cold MC hides behind a mask. Flirty MC is a perv and Shy MC is scared of their own shadow but they admire Kaya so much it hurts. MC will at least try to step up to the plate against Immortal Roses’ enemies. Even if they get their ass kicked. They have to be good at fighting to be dating who they’re dating, though depending on player choice with the girlfriend and overall character development with the boyfriend, the relationship doesn’t last.

The chance to develop into a Greedy or Kind MC will come up way later btw.

I made a minor mistake, the status text should not be indented.

Fixed it! However the word text shows up in the stats screen TwT

One down, seven more to go.
