RPG-The Ochanomizu/Tenma Files: The Early Years

Postby Prettywitchiusaka » 6 years ago

Hello everyone.

Well it took me long enough, but I FINALLY have a new RPG up. Last time, we had an RPG centred around Hoshie, so let's instead go back and have an RPG exploring the early years of Tenma and O'Shay's relationship.

March 1992

( It is a bright, sunny morning as O'Shay parks his car in front of the Ministry of Science. He steps out in his normal brown dress suit, looking rather happy as usual)

Doctor: Morning, O'Shay.

O: Oh, good morning Dr. Pavilion. How are you?

P: Not bad at all. How about you? Any big plans for today?

O: Actually, I'll be showing around our newest employee today. He's in the same department as me, so I figured he might need someone to show him around.

P: Oh, you mean that Tenma guy, right? I think he's upstairs in his office right now.

O: He is?

P: Yeah. Anyway, I'll see you later.

(He heads into the building while O'Shay stays there for a moment. He looks both surprised, and a bit annoyed)

O: That's weird. I thought I told him to meet me in the lobby.

(He just sighs and heads into the Ministry)

(Later, he heads towards an office that has a nameplate with Tenma's name on it)

I guess I need some ground rules here. Since you are using the name O'Shay I assumed that you meant the 2003 series. But, you also put a date of 1992 there. That would be 38 years prior to Astro's birth (since the 1980 series set that date as 2030, and while no date was ever given for the 2003 series, it would have been AT LEAST as late as 2030). By giving the 1992 date, it seems you actually had Astro's birth year at 2003.

My question is, how many years BEFORE Astro's birth year does this RPG take place?

Also who is Dr. Pavilion? (just on OC you made up, or what?)

I've got some good 'Head Canon' ideas for this RPG, but need to know the time frame setting ....

Pavilion was just someone I made up; I needed someone for O'Shay to talk to during this opening scene, so I just went with a made up character.

As for when this RPG takes place, I am trying to align it with Astro's birthday. Therefore, I plan to reveal in later posts that Tenma and Hoshie are newly pregnant, which gives Tenma enough time to meet O'Shay before Tobio's untimely death.

Hope that answers your questions, Tetsuwan. If you have anymore, feel free to ask.

From March 1992 to April 2003 is 11 years and one month.
Assuming Hoshie just pregant with Tobio that would make him about ten years old at the time of Astro's birth, but since it took Tenma about a year to build Astro, Tobio would have been about 9 at the time of his death. That DOES line up. SO....I guess the original time frame of 2003 applies and NOT the one based on 2030.

Dr. O'Shay had a reason to feel out of sorts. Dr. Pavillion was ready to retire, and many of the staff thought that he was turning a bit senile. Dr. O'Shay was now the second most senior person on the staff at Ministry of Science, and he had been thinking that the position of director might be offered to him, Instead, he had heard rumors that Dr. Pavillion had been recruiting for a younger person to take over his position. Then came the word of the hiring of Dr. Tenma.

O'Shay had interviewed Tenma, and he was impressed with him. Not exactly the type to run the organization, though he might be capable of it. Better to put him in charge of the robotics research division first, O'Shay thought. (With me in the director's position maybe? He added).

O'Shay entered the building and found the office that had been set aside for Dr. Tenma. It was a larger office than his own, which slightly miffed him, and right next door to Dr. Pavillion's office. As O'Shay entered the office, he found Dr. Tenma unpacking.

O: (knocks on the door frame to get Dr. Tenma's attention) “Hello”

T: (looks up while unpacking a cardboard box) “Hello! Dr. O'Shay, right?”

O: “Yes. I see you found your office without any trouble.”

T: (Taking a framed picture of his wife Hoshie out of the box and setting in on the desk in front of him)
“Actually, one of the engineers lead me here. This building is quite the maze! It will probably take me a week to know my way around without getting lost!”

O: “Yes, the place can be intimidating at times. But the layout actually does make some sense, in an obtuse way.”

T: “Oh drat, pardon my manors!” (Tenma extends his hand to O'Shay who takes it and they shake hands.) “Pleased to be working with you!”

O: “You're very welcome! If you need anything, my office is just down the hall!”

T: “Thank you. Perhaps we can have lunch together, later?”

O: “Certainly. I'll come by and get you. I'll show you where the Ministry's Cafeteria is located. The food there is actually quite good.”

T: (Finished unloaded the box and started to fold it up) “Looking forward to it. See you later, O'Shay!”

Dr. O'Shay walked out and headed to his own office. Well, that went OK. This Tenma wasn't nearly as aloof and self centered as he'd been told. Maybe, they'd get along after all.

Tetsuwan
It does, but that doesn't mean that you can't incorporate other concepts and ideas from other versions of Astro Boy into this RPG. As far as I'm concerned, anything is okay as long as it makes sense in the long run.

Later in the cafeteria, O'Shay is standing in one spot, looking for a place to sit when he spots Tenma. He is sitting alone, reading a book. O'Shay walks over to him.

O: Mind if I take a sit?

Tenma looks up to see a smiling O'Shay

T; Sure...Go ahead.

O'Shay sits down and begins eating his lunch. he notices Tenma's homemade bento

O; I see you packed a lunch for yourself.

T; Actually, my wife made it for me.

O; Oh, that's very thoughtful of her.

T; I suppose...

Dr. Tenma stood in front of the door to his house fumbling for his house keys. His pockets were full of loose change, pencil stubs, his wallet, and several handkerchiefs. He finally located his keys and manged to get the door open. It might have been easier if he had put down his briefcase first, of course.

Hoshie had heard the sound of the key in the lock and was waiting for her husband by the door. She had a big smile on her face as she put her arms around Umataro to plant a kiss on him.

H: “How was your first day at the Ministry, dear?”

U: “Things went fairly well. I met Dr. O'Shay, the man who interviewed me a few weeks ago. He seems like a nice person, I just hope he's not too upset that Dr. Pavilion was grooming me to be his replacement.”

Hoshie stood waiting for her husband to ask her the question that she was dying to answer, but Umataro seemed to have forgotten all about their conversation from the other day.

H: “Aren't you going to ask me about my day?”

Umataro stood there with a blank look on his face for a few seconds before he finally remembered. He face palmed and blushed slightly.

U: “I'm sorry dear, I completely forgot about that. You went to see that nice Dr. Tezuka today, didn't you. Did he figure out why you've been feeling ill lately?

H: “Yes, I went to see him. He has a very nice bedside manor, so to speak. Anyway, you'll be very happy to hear the news. We're expecting!”

Once again it took Umataro a few seconds to digest his wife's answer. He put down his briefcase and took a few steps closer to Hoshie to gently hug her.

U: “I guess that's wonderful news dear. Only, it's rather ...”

H: “Sudden. Yes I know we haven't been trying very long. I guess both of us are in fertile condition!”

U: “I guess so. Maybe we should hire a maid, or I can get a robot from the Ministry to serve us as one. You shouldn't have to do any work around the house in your condition.”

H: “Oh come on now! I'm barely in the first month! Dr. Tezuka said that I won't need to take it easy till the last trimester. I'm not made of glass you know!”

U: “I guess so.”

Dr. Tenma walked into the closet in a daze to hang up his coat. He left his briefcase in the closet instead of bringing it to his home office, it was clear that he was now in a bit of a scatter brain.

Hoshie sat down at the kitchen table with a magazine open to an article on popular baby names. She had already circled several possibilities.

Smiling, Hoshie started dreaming of what being a mother would be like. As Tenma came in, she was eager to start the discussion over a possible name, but Tenma seemed lost in his thoughts. That wasn't unusual for him, but it made her feel rather alone at that moment.

H: "Are you okay?"

T: "Oh, yes", replied Tenma, unconvincingly.

H: "I thought you'd be a little more enthusiastic."

T: "It's not in my nature, you know."

H: "I wouldn't say so; when you have an idea in mind..."

Tenma let's out a sigh as he rubs his temples in between his fingers. He sits down beside Hoshie.

T: I'm just nervous, that 's all. I'm not sure if I'm cut to be parenting a child.

Hoshie just smiles. She puts her hand on his, he looks at her

H: you won't be raising it alone, though.

Tenma smiles at her.

T: Yes, I... You have names picked out already?

Hoshie picked up the magazine she'd been reading, folded to the page that the article on baby names was on.

H: “I've come up with a few. Want to hear my favorites?”

U: “Of course!”

H: “Well, if our child is a boy, my two favorites are Adamu, or Tobio”

U: “And if a girl?”

H: “Well my great grand mother was of Greek decent, and I'd like to name a child after her. So I was thinking of “Urania”.

U: “If you really like those names, then so do I.”

Umataro kissed Hoshie on her forehead while giving her a hug. (He towered over his wife, and even had to bend down to reach her forehead).
