Blue Balls Tracker
Admittedly, these are not the best pictures. I took them quickly before running out of the house on my way to work.
But, as you can see - they allow Alpha Blue players to track their characters' blue balls - females, too! How horny are they? How desperate? What kind of bonus (carrot) or penalty (stick) is in store for them?
Like keeping track of a vampire's blood supply, this creates a sense of urgency - it's an incentive to bone! Sure, there was bonus Health before... but this is better. At least, I think so. I've playtested it a few times, and it seems to be a hit with players.
If you're not sure, try it in a demo game and see what happens. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. Timid players especially will appreciate something in-hand that they can point to and say, "This right here! This is why my character is chatting up the three-breasted green-skinned babe at the bar. It's not because I'm a colossal pervert, OK?"
Kobayashi Maroon PDF, the Blue Balls Tracker comes with it.
Both a colored version you can print off and use, as well as, a black and white version that you can color in yourself. I literally have hundreds of random markers, colored pencils, and crayons all over my house.
Let me know your thoughts. And happy tracking!
