We Want Your Stories!

Postby Nestor2k » Fri Jun 14, 2013 9:20 am

Our goal for version 0.0.10 is to have "storyline" content. A mission/quest system will be developed for each race. Also, there will be NPC ships and planets.

To help build up content for missions, we would like to invite everyone to submit small stories. You can post them on the forums, or send us a message through Facebook. If we like them, and think they will work well for a mission, we will include them!

For example (and this is just outlined), here's a Terran mission:

- Squeeks stole GC from a soldier on planet X.
- Turns out, a Squeek soldier started a bar fight on the Terran planet.
- Locate the frigate ship at planet X, and destroy it.

Of course, fill in the blanks with an epic story. As far as rewards for the mission, you can offer suggestions, but we will most likely set the awards to help balance the game.

Also, planet X will be variable, and it will be a random planet owned by the player running the mission.

Have fun! Thanks everyone!

I don't know how much of this is feasible for implementation, but obviously just take what you can use.

Terran Mission: A Game of Squeeks

Recent comm chatter from the neighboring Squeek empire of X reveals that conflict is brewing between them and the Octopods on their far border. The whole mess started when the youngest Squeek Prince got a little too drunk during an inter-species diplomatic conference and blatantly insulted the wife of the Octopod Emperor. Since the Emperor's wife is considered the physical incarnation of their Water Goddess, many Octopod citizens have called for the Squeek Prince's blood. Though the Prince has been reprimanded and issued a public apology to the Octopods, tensions are running high between the two cultures right now. We would be wise to take advantage of this for our own gain.

Selections:
A1: Tell me how I can secure a diplomatic advantage.

The King of the Squeeks has been fighting hard to break his people of their isolationist attitude so as to improve trade with other empires. His two eldest sons are in agreement with him. The youngest, he suspects, is plotting against the three of them for the throne. The King has known his share of enemies in his day and can be ruthless when its called for, as long as he doesn't get blood on his own antennae. Offering to assassinate his youngest son and smooth things over with the Octopod Emperor would go a long way toward improving our own relations with both empires.

The Squeek Prince, on the other hand, wishes to continue the isolationist and expansionist policies of his forefathers. He would love nothing more than to go to war with the Octopods and claim a few mineral rich planets to fund future campaigns. The only problem is, he's third in line for the throne behind his two elder brothers, and the old man is hanging on far longer than anyone expected. The Prince can handle the King himself, but his brothers are another matter. Both will be setting out on a social visit to friends in the Octopod Empire soon. If a military strike force were to see to it that the older princes meet an untimely demise and leave evidence of Octopod involvement, it would greatly improve our standing with the soon to be new King of the Squeeks. Eventually our involvement would leak out, though, and our relationship with the Octopods would be damaged forever.

Selections:
A2: Assassinate the youngest Squeek Prince.
B2: Destroy the older Squeek Princes and blame the Octopods.
C2: Tell me how to secure a military advantage instead [Jump to B1]

B1: Tell me how to secure a military advantage.

Obviously the Squeeks are sandwiched between us and the Octopods. No matter how good their military is, chances are they can't fight well on two fronts. Since it would take very little provocation to incite the Octopods to attack, we could provoke a Squeek border patrol into firing on us and petition the Octopods for military assistance.

An Octopod diplomat, a relative of the Emperor's wife, will be traveling to the Squeek Empire for talks soon. If we ambush her convoy and leave behind evidence of Squeek involvement, the Octopods are almost certain to go to war. When the Octopods attack, we would simply offer military aid to the Squeeks.

Selections:
A3: Provoke the Squeeks into firing on us and petition the Octopods for help.
B3: Ambush the Octopod diplomat and blame it on the Squeeks.
C3: Tell me how to secure a diplomatic advantage instead. [Jump to A1]
