...I have finally come up with a plot for my RPG. For those of you who don't know about it, I'm creating a Realmz style RPG, set in the Escape Velocity Universe. The main difference s that it is set on land, instead of flying about in ships. (And no magic spells either :))
Here's the plot, if you don't want to find out what happens, then don't read, I wan't some opinions from as many people as possible.
You have just graduated from Capricia Tech, the leading university on Capella. To earn some money to buy a ship, you decide to join the ConEx Land Couriers, a division of the ConEx Courier Conglomerate. No sooner than a day after your initiation, you are assigned to a backwater planet in the Propus system, New Ireland to be precise. As your transport for the journey jumps into the system, you recieve a distress call from the edge of the system, from a floating bulk frieghter. There are only a few faint life signs, and as the captain of your small vessel hails the ship, no reply is given.
Upon docking with the vessel, and further exploration of the ship, you discover that all crew members are dead, and the only record of their existence, is the ships log. Back on your ship, and the captain boots up the ship's log, to reveal, a young man, probably the captain, speaking into the Vid recorder:
"Whether or not anyone will recieve this message is dooubtful, I just hope that what I hgave discovered may make a difference.
I was travelling through the trugati asteroid belt, we were low on fuel and morale was abismal. You can imagine our joy, when we were hailed by a Confederation Cruiser, we thought our troubles were over. We were wrong. _
The tape skipped and cut out, leaving a low hiss of static before cutting in again. This time, the young man seemed distraught and in extreme pain.
...all of them...they killed all of them! (static) ...said that the redemption is here....the purification of the galaxy is at hand... (more static) OH GOD THE PAIN! THE NEVERENDING PAIN!.... (static) ..traitors. THIER ALL AROUND US....THIER COMING...COMING!
The tape cut out, and you and the captain are left in shock. Before you can recover, sensors pick up a hostile vessel of the starbound bow, closing in fast. The ID Code reveals the ship to be a confederation vessel, but the captain assures you that he has a perfect record in Confederation space. Multiple missiles rack the vessles hull, leaving the ship in a disabled state. An hour later, and you are in the brig of the Confederation Cruiser. The door to the cell opens, and a white haired man enters, his face is scarred with horrible burns and cuts...you know this won' be pleasent...
That's only aruff version and the story telling is terrible, I can do much better (see the Tides of War in my sig :D). All that ahppens is that the Confederation is split in two by the loyal 'Feds and the traitors Lucifer Collective. The Lucifer collective have been in contact with a new alien race, that is intent of universal destruction (cliché, I know). The first part of the game involves you escaping from the L.C.S Ship Redemption. Then you have to help the Confeds, destroy the alien mother brain etc etc...
I know it's very rough but with some re-touching, what do you think?
Oh, I'm sorry. Did that break your concentration?
I didn't mean to do that.
I believe you were saying something about "best intentions."

Sounds cool, you do know that you CAN'T change the background in EV right? I believe we mentioned that a while ago. Maybe Matt can answer whether or not EV3 will allow background chagnes...

I won't be using the Ev Engine, I'm using a programming tool called Coldstone which assembles the game in REALBasic. The only thing it has to do with EV is the universe.
