Roleplay / AKUDAMAX

AKUDAMAX (is it pronounced "Akuda-MAX" or "Akudama-X"? Yes) is a one-round short-term murdergame based on the anime Akudama Drive. The game began on August 14, 2021.

It can be read on Dreamwidth here.

This game provides examples of:

  • Anyone Can Die: Standard in a murdergame.
  • Closed Circle: Justified Trope. There's a police force that disallows all X-Class Akudama from going off wherever they want to.
  • Cyberpunk: An oppressive government? A rebellious group looking to thwart it? Advanced technology? They're all there.

  • Dehumanizing Insult: What almost everyone's title is for them.
  • Dwindling Party: As is custom for both Akudama Drive and murdergames.
  • Manipulative Editing: The Government edits the trials they film in order to make the X-Classes look as terrible people as possible.
  • Nameless Narrative: Though the player character X-Class Akudama do have canonical names, they are referred to by titles, and so are all of the people encountered in the world - the tattoo parlor guy, the police Commissioner, and so on.
  • Outside-Context Problem: There's a reason why the players are called X-Class Akudama. The "X" stands for "Xeno".
  • Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: As with the original, all of the X-Class Akudama are criminals of varying severity.

How well does it match the trope?
