Chapter 3: SEXUAL ALIGNMENT

All characters have a sexual alignment, in addition to their conventional alignment, gauging the power and direction of their libido. It is impossible to chart the depths of a person’s passion using this system, much as conventional alignments give little insight to a person’s philosophical standing. Instead, sexual alignment gives necessary mechanics, leaving the nature of a person’s tastes and attitudes to the players themselves.

Sexual alignments are composed of two facets: a drive, representing the extent to which a person surrenders to their libido, and an orientation, displaying their preference in gender. Kinks, particular likes & dislikes, build up these (see section below).

Drive
Abstinent – Abstinent characters have better things to do with their time than indulge in petty hedonism. They may be focused on their cause, adamant in their self-control or simply fearful of social disapproval. They avoid sexual situations, and are often disdainful of those with less restraint than themselves.
Moderant – Moderant characters are indeed sexual beings, but are not foolish enough to let their desires hold sway over them. They welcome an opportunity to exercise their passions, but sexuality is far from the be-all and end-all of life.
Indulgent – Indulgent characters embrace their sexuality as a major, if not defining, factor of themselves and seek to gratify their urges whenever the opportunity presents itself. Those that repress their deepest feelings for whatever peculiar reasons are looked at with some confusion – why would they deny themselves to such an extent?

Orientation
Gyno – Gyno characters are solely interested in the company of women; they are horrified and disgusted by the thought of sexual activity with men, treating them as an unaccepted gender for the purposes of Prowess checks.
Bi-Gyno – Bi-Gyno characters prefer the company of women, and usually seek them exclusively. Attitudes to sexual activity with men range from inquisitiveness to disinterest, treating them as of an unpreferred gender for the purposes of Prowess checks.
Bi – Bi characters may have a preference between men and women, but are essentially open to activity with everyone. They can be considered ‘sexually ambidextrous’ in that they can swing both ways without penalty.
Bi-Andro - Bi-Andro characters prefer the company of men, and usually seek them exclusively. Attitudes to sexual activity with women range from inquisitiveness to disinterest, treating them as of an unpreferred gender for the purposes of Prowess checks.
Andro - Andro characters are solely interested in the company of men; they are horrified and disgusted by the thought of sexual activity with women, treating them as an unaccepted gender for the purposes of Prowess checks.

Sample Alignment
Apollo Whiteheart (LN) is a 27-year-old human, possessed of muscular build and a shock of black hair. He comes across to his comrades as an ardent warrior whose only concern is for battle, never relinquishing in the face of his opponents and possessed of unbounded camaraderie. Below this solid exterior, however, Apollo’s love is not for combat but his male comrades (Andro). It is this repressed aspect that inspires his valiance in battle, but he does his best not to let his emotional concerns control him (Abstinent).

Conventional and Sexual Alignment (sidebar)
Whilst there are no fixed rules regarding the matter, a person’s ethical alignment may give some insight into their sexual one. A person’s libido is a haphazard, unpredictable force that defies attempts to analyse or control it, and hence is more prevalent amongst chaotic characters; lawful characters tend to repress their sexualities as an undesirable aspect of their mentality, or clarify and focus it toward the andro- and gyno- orientations. Moral alignments offer fewer guidelines, but evil characters have a stronger tendency to sate themselves on the fulfilment that sexuality can provide at the expense of others, whilst good characters may mute their desires out of concern for the implications for their partners. Hence, indulgent characters are more often evil than good, although this isn’t a clear pattern.
