Considering my natural interest in villains, it would be weird for me not to at least be interested in this plot. There's a few villain concepts I wanna test out anyway, so, let's see how this goys.

*ahem*

A classic hello :3

Hello, Thundahguy! We meet again. As you may remember, I am the jokingly self-proclaimed Shell Master Tortwag, and I thank you for this wonderful concept you've served the SB section! *chuckle* We don't have enough spotlight for villains, so, hopefully this'll stand out for being just that: a very, very fun spotlight. A few questions, before anything else!


♦Are the 3 Faction Leaders NPCs? 'Cause if so, I'd love to join the Manics and see if I can experiment with Elena Vlight. Rei is the only true experience of romance I've tried in SBs, and I'm interested to see if I can pull off a fun version of that in a dangerous setting gimmick. Considering that The Void is a lawless environment, it's not that far fetched, anyway.

♦Do we have a basic plot line, or must we come up with one as we go? I mean, I guess the end goal's to escape, but since only one guy knows how and is prolly not willing to share this information with most people, there would have to be exploration, info-gathering and plotting to find a way to leave. Which leads to my third question:

♦Do we have a map or general idea of what the Void looks like in its entirety? Did it develop some kind of nasty, super-powered wilderness along with the wrecked city, or strange fauna, or anything? Is it like a modern city with modern technology, or futuristic in nature? Y'know, that kind of stuff.


That's about it! I got a character, so, I should be able to create it soon enough.

Nice to see you too, Gawtrot. As for your questions:

- Faction leaders are NPCs. Have fun with them.

- I have an idea for a basic plotline, but we don't have to be concerned with it for now. It's intended to be all-encompassing, so no matter what side or faction you side with you'll be part of the story.

- The city in the void is pretty damaged and destroyed, after the constant territory fights between factions. Flora and fauna are pretty non-existent, so unless there's a plant manipulator, don't expect much.

That is definitely a nickname I did not agree with, though a nice remastering of my actual one. Hmm. Poopsie's very creative.

-MUHAHAHAHAHA

-Got it! Sub-plots + character placement first. It's gonna be interesting/hard enough to fit in, anyway.

-My character might just be that, actually, which is why - partly - why I asked. That being said, so it's literally just a broken city, and the voice all around it. Gotcha. *chuckle* I'll prolly have NPCs make that kind of environment if possible as a first sub-plot, but we'll see. Still up in the air - character first.

Thank you for your answers, m'dear!


EDIT: Template Created! 'Twas fun to modify it :3

@SirenCymbaline Hello m'dear! Well, it definitely needs to start whenever enough Character Templates have been added in the storybook, so, we'll prolly have to wait a bit more to see what we can get.
Or, we could already start planting our sub-plots via first posts to attract more attention, if @Thundahguy is cool with that.

@Tortwag that's a neat idea, I'll just wait until after Thundaguy posts before I do anyway. I like to wait for the creator to post cos they usually give me a better idea of the world and the plot.

Also I'll signal boost this to see if I can get a friend or two on board

@Littleun Your character is up, though I request that you change the alias of Alexian. The alias is simply what they were called before being sent to the void. Essentially the same as the nickname.

And as for the regular posts, we'll aim for starting after valentine's day, whether there's a good amount of people or not. If you want to, you can make small prologue style posts for your characters, as mine is much more intertwined with the whole story.

We're starting by 14th of February? WOW, that's far. Yup, definetely writing a prologue in the meantime!

In my case, I just need a basic introduction of my character and a quick encounter with her faction leader, so, it shouldn't mess anyone's plans just yet. whoever wants to post may do that as well, of course!

Decision I'm doing. The new semester is pretty tough on me, so I won't be able to properly do this SB. That, and the very few people that joined convinced me to delete this. Sorry if I've wasted your time.

That's kinda disappointing, but I understand that life can get pretty busy. Take care of yourself, man.

@Thundahguy Though it COULD be considered as a waste of time, I at least got to create a new character I may re-use for something else, so eh. Could be worse.

Good luck with life, m'dear!
