That was a joke. "Grown men who roleplay Shojo manga characters" isn't
yet a common enough category to make it into the Geek Heirarchy --
though who knows, it may make it into the (as yet mythical) version 3.0
if Heartquest really takes off!

Funny, that describes my game Topos (in playtesting) to a tee. I just
suggested a second playtesting session (since the rules mutated so
wildly during the first), and Travis offered to put together a mailing
list for us. So far Pat, Lxndr, Travis, and Mike have offered to play.
The last-but-one version of Topos is posted at
I've made some
minor changes to the rules in general & have reworked the Avatars
section considerably; I would attach the current version (an RTF file)
to this message but I suspect you wouldn't get it if you receive mail
in digest format.
