In Re: Jobs

There's been a few questions and comments about jobs both here and elsewhere. So I figured I'd clear the air on a couple of issues.

First of all, Thursday streams, which generally go for 4-6 hours, are being devoted to progressing jobs for the foreseeable future. The only way to get them done is to sit down and do them, unfortunately (for me), so a significant chunk of my time is going to be spent doing just that. It sucks for me (I hate working on the same thing over and over), but it's good for you, because jobs have been stagnant for a while, and I need to focus on the core mechanics that I've been ignoring for (seemingly) unimportant stuff.

Second: I specifically want to finish the Eroticism career before I start working on anything else. This isn't as bad as it sounds. Currently, I have to finish the Call Girl job, then add in the Pimp/Brothel Madam job (same job, different approach), the Model and Supermodel jobs, the Porn Actress job, and the Bartender and Club Manager job. This sounds like a lot, I know, but it really isn't that bad. The model job is more or less a non-sexy extension of the Nude Model job, and the Bartender job won't be terribly difficult to do.

Third: That fourth job folder, the black one that talks about the Services job? That's going away. Instead, I'll be setting up what I'm calling "bonus" jobs. These are basically hobbies/part-time jobs that you elevate to full-time jobs over time. So, for example, if you buy a maid outfit and have a computer, you can advertise your part-time cleaning service on the internet, and work those jobs on your days off or your off hours. Build up enough of a reputation, and you can do it full-time, where it replaces your current job. These bonus jobs will not be promotable, but instead, you'll set up the job to work around you. If your cleaning service gets really busy, you can hire another employee, for example. If, on the other hand, the cleaning is really only a cover for the service you really provide (you know what I'm talking about), then you might need to alter your outfit to appeal to that clientele, and they'll definitely be interested in the "optional extras", so to speak.

Currently, the bonus jobs I have planned are Maid, Thief, and Convent Brothel Madam.

Edit: And possibly Band Member. Gotta get a use for that guitar somehow.


  1. Awesome. Thanks for all of your hard work on the job paths. As an aside, did you know there is such a thing as a Nude Maid service?

  2. Pitty I was curious about how that 4th folder worked out, it seemed like a security job or something.

    1. It was, originally, but since the ultimate jobs from either branch you picked would've been thief and maid anyway, I just decided to consolidate.

  3. love were this is going cant wait

  4. Convent Brothel Madam? That sounds like an oxymoron.

    But it also sound really cool..

  5. Convent Brothel Madam

    I love you.

  6. Looks like loads of fun! Does a nice job of giving players stuff to do, advancing their character, which is exactly what the game needs at this point! Well, that and money sinks. Despite how so ridiculousy strapped for cash you are at the beginning, at a certain point, you just start accumulating more money than you could ever spend on anything ever and money becomes completely meaningless, leaving you with very little to work towards... Unfortunately, by the time we get into these new careers, we'll often be at or near that point where working a job has nothing to do with actually working and earning money.

  7. Sounds utterly jawsome. I'm looking forward to jobs that reflect a resistance to the characters change, to one extent or another.


  8. Band member? so much potential! From groupies to wild parties. You could even create a character with relationship from that.

  9. Another idea for bonus job:
    Bouncer or Bodyguard...with all the fighting possible in the game this should also account.

  10. some ideas for the Green folder path
    - Boss mistress (if you seduce the boss enough, if you get pregnant from him... maybe another possibility)

    - Boss Mistress (if you have the Dominant Trait and leather or latex boots)
