PostSubject: Story-Thread: Write your own Story about RC089   Tue 5 Jul - 23:14

After starting to trigger the first Quest in Story Mode, I realized that the whole story was written by myself and felt kind boring (to me at least). So I wanted to try an experiment:
The story of RC089 will be written here, in this thread, with the community as the Maincast!

I'll offer a starting Situation and then everyone can write what the Players have to do next. You can copy-paste previous options, you can talk about the options offered by others, you can spam, you can support a specific proposal or whatever. The intention of this thread is to write a new story for RC089, starting with the arrival of the players at the shut-down RC. just write what you would do if this was your Squad that had to Recon the RC!

Since I have to trigger everything, I hope you'll understand if I keep the right to select the next "official" action of the squad for myself. I will listen to your opinions and pick those suggestions that are the most interesting or the most supported. I'll also add a few of my own suggestion what the next task should be, but remember: I'll alsways pick the most interesting one! The whole story will be updated in the first post, and I will keep track of who suggested what and how often. You just have to keep coming by and leave an idea or two. Other then that you can do whatever you want.


Starting Situation:
It is 10am and the Squad just arrived at the town of RC089. Gamma Squad accompanied you and is currently reinforcing their position arround the town-centre. Nearby you can see the Local "Public Security"-Building, next to one of the Communication Centres in the area. Both buildings are currently not working because of a power outage. The emergency generators are not working, but Gamma Squad is currently trying to bring them back online, in order to find out what exactly happened here.

The Squad is assembled, and needs a new objective. Communication with RC-Central is down, so its up to the Squadleader to decide. And the Squadleader decides to....

squad leader decides to go to the communication to try to restore it only to find the satellite -damaged- by an organic material and it appears to have "holes" in it. the engineers report this material is blocking transmissions from being sent the leader orders to have this material removed but on contact it begins to stir and corrodes the rest of the dish. while the satellight is being destroyed violently and shake panels of the satellite, meanwhile a horde of flying creature(s) emerges from the "holes" and begins to attack the squad....

any good? or too much?[i]

Lets wait for more options^^ But that what I had in mind:

A task the Players have to do and at least one way how to do it... and you even added a few possible crep encounters^^

So yeahs thats good. I'll wait for a few more posts and then I'll decide, ok?

escort some engineers from town to the communication array to repair it. When the squad reaches the array the smell of death lurks high and corpses
of engineers are found dead, appearing to have humanoid bite marks. The squad leader radios gamma squad(>.< are you in gamma squad or is it some squad watching over RC089?...I should honestly lurk around a bit more before posting) and suddenly gets grabbed(xD total Hades/Diablo moment) and bloodied humanoid figures begin to swarm from the shadows.

1. chapter
the squad leader decides to sit an wait if gamma can get the strcutures back up, after 1-3 minutes of scouting the sourrundings and encountering a few small zombies, the gamma is still working the squad leader decides to do something to find out what caused this black out. two squads will be formed (if there are less than 3 ppl ingame its only one squad) both must check a specific location on the map for hints (these locations should be not to far away), if both squads arrived one finds a hint in form of "...." (dunno yet), the others have no idea. both squads should return because gamma is under attack. from now on there should be atleast one player defending gamma. the squadleader takes the rest of the squad to the entrance to find out more about this. the entrance is sealed and an emergency protocoll tells them that an accident happend and the rc was sealed.

2. chapter
now that the squad knows what to do, they regroup with gamma an plan their next moves. either they wait in town and try to sit it out or they move on to find a way to stop this.
if they decide to sit it out some waves of zombies will assault the town. if the squad survives they get help from the army and next chapt 3.
if they try to find out they must gather a few things from places on the map: 5 blood samples from a laboratoy, an research data sheet from the ext. outpost and an device from the "..." to capture a zombie "alive". once they found it they must search in houses on the map for a living scientist to bring these things together. -> chap 3

3. chapter
gamma has brought both buildings back online, so you can communicate with the hq. they send you help in form of some soldiers and a tank (or something like that) and you get you task: kill as many zombies as possible while the scientist works on a cure. after 4-5 minutes the scientist needs another incredient: water from 2 lakes near the rc. after you brought them to the scientist he makes a cure. you must secure the scientist with the cure on his way out of the map to make more of it. while many zombies assault you.
----------

not perfect but i hope you can use some ideas

Ok, I'll do a short summary now and because I noticed how little information I actually gave you about the map... I'll tell you more about the Ingame Locations, NPCs and other stuff. You can also ask if you want to know something specific which I did not mention here.


Sit-Rep on RC089:
Thanathos Industries (TI) has deployed 4 different Squads to deal with the situation at RC089:
-Alpha Squad will consist of the players and will be supported by the other Squads if possible.
-Beta Squad is ordered to secure the surrounding area to prevent anyone or anything from getting in or out.
-Gamma Squad will construct a perimeter at the town center so Alpha Squad has a point of retreat to in case they are overwhelmed by hostiles.
-Delta Squad is still on route and will observe the situation together with TI.

There are multiple bases in the area, starting with the Barracks, Powerstations, Security-points, the Vehicle Depot, the Main-Entrance, several small Villages, an Air-Field, an automated Robotic Factory (not working cause of the Power outage), the External Outpost and the local HQ.
The area is covered with a dense forest, intersected with a few, well-paved roads leading through them. A few rivers cross the area and the northern part of the landscpe changes into mountains.



Current Situation:
 

Summary of available Suggestions:

Squadleader patiodadyo19 suggested...
...to try restoring the Communiction with TI by checking out the Com-Arrays. Delta-Squad informs Alpha-Squad of strange organic material that can be foucnd near the Com-Arrays.
Caution is advised, Squadleader patiodadyo19 believes you might encounter flying creatures.


Squadleader Master_Of_Panda suggested...
...to escort some of Gamma Squads Engineers to the other Com-Arrays in order to see if they can bring them online. Gamma Squad asks for an escort because their scouts didnt come back and they don't answer their calls.
Caution is advised, Squadleader Master_Of_Panda believes the dead aren't as dead as they want you to believe.


Squadleader Spartan suggested...
...to patrol the area and learn more about the general area and try looking for clues to what happened here.
Squadleader Spartan believes that something is guaranteed to happen to Gamma Squad.


Squadleader Andx667 suggested...
...to stick around with Gamma Squad and help them getting the Communication-Centre in Town back online. In that case Gamma Squad will send them to retrieve additional supplies from one (or more) bases in the area that are not so far away.
Squadleader Andx667 believes that the Players should go to the Mainentrance and find out what happend there. He also believes that Gamma Squad should be covered with one or more players in order to prevent them from dying.

______________________________________________________________


Thats how I understood your suggestions in terms of Objectives. If something bothers you, please leave a post, ok? I'll post the "official" next Objective this Sunday. After that the "Current Situation" will be updated and you can post the next mission.

@Spartan: What do you mean with "5 explosive rounds and 2 missiles spawn"?

@Andx667: Your suggestions for the later chapters are all noted and will be listed again once we reach those chapters.

@All: I also want to mention that you can suggest more elaborate Missions, like having multiple objectives at once, or "First do X, then do Y in order to do Z".

Gamma Sqaud : Damn! We need some fucking electricity to operate our equipment in order to reboot the facilitys! Go get us 3 Generators. We believe they could be in some towns and bases!

____________________________________________________________

You go search for the three generators but you encounter a huge horde of zombies following you. You need to get the mission done.

This is kinda an add on for the search for supplies someone posted.

You must get x to operate y to turn on z

(this is a rough draft without the conversation)

the squad leader is told the power is out. and decides to us the batteries from the jeeps in the motor-pool to jury rig the RC internal generators. while inside the complex you hear an occasional ominous sound that suddenly stop at the door to the gen. room it is lock. an engineer says it will take a minute or two to open...while the door is attempted to be open a scientist wanders out from an adjacent room, the scientist has bloody clothing then after a few seconds charges the soldiers then, after he takes some dmg he sprints down a a hallway into another room, the squad leader order the team to split up. the team going after the scientist finds him and kills him in a fight. the team who stayed behind gets the doors open and jump starts the generators, afterwards movement can be heard thought the land and facility ( resident evil moment Smile ) when the separated squad reunites in a conference room in the rc, the squad leader is that multiple object are being tracked then the communication gets cut out ((maybe block minimap too, for realism Smile )

--this is where you can insert my original suggestion or have the story line split---


be advised if you choose this i would like that scientist to be kinda like a boogie man but not the man finale boss battle maybe be like make him a side quest or a commander for the main boss of the infected ^^.(if u you need help putting him in to the W3 editor i maybe able to help, but im not experienced with the w3 unless its like the star craft 2 editor which ive been fooling around with a hero siege map with my friends)


(i know theres a way you can upload songs and sounds to the maps its been done in the Castlevania map. <--thats just a thought.)

Ok, Doesnt look like thers more to come, so I'll pick the "best" choice today. The reasons for my decision will be explained here and I'll update the "Current Situation"-Spoiler.

SL patiodadyo19:
Your decision is sound, and probably something that 9 of 10 SL would attempt to do is this situation. Your encounter of flying creatures made this option a No-Go, since this is still the very first mission where recruits try to get their bearing. But after your revision, it became acceptable again.
Squadleader patiodadyo19 suggested...
...to try restoring the Communiction with TI by checking out the Com-Arrays. Delta-Squad is asking you to go to the Vehicle Depot and pick up something to Power-Up the Com-Arrays.
Squadleader patiodadyo19 believes you might encounter the living dead.


SL Master_Of_Panda:
Your decision was the most attractive for me, since you decided to restore Communications AND since Gamma-Squad sent Engineers, first time players had a group of NPCs to follow for guidance AND the NPCs increased the survival chances of the recruits.
Squadleader Master_Of_Panda suggested...
...to escort some of Gamma Squads Engineers to the other Com-Arrays in order to see if they can bring them online. Gamma Squad asks for an escort because their scouts didnt come back and they don't answer their calls.
Caution is advised, Squadleader Master_Of_Panda believes the dead aren't as dead as they want you to believe.


SL Spartan:
You wrote a nice little cinematic, and your decision had the most atmosphere. I dont want to say it was bad, but other decisions were just better. Keep it up!^^
Squadleader Spartan suggested...
...to patrol the area and learn more about the general area and try looking for clues to what happened here.
Squadleader Spartan believes that something is guaranteed to happen to Gamma Squad.


SL Andx667:
Your decision has the most possibilities, so players can try to solve this particular Problem in a lot of different ways (something I like a lot).
Squadleader Andx667 suggested...
...to stick around with Gamma Squad and help them getting the Communication-Centre in Town back online. In that case Gamma Squad will send them to retrieve additional supplies from one (or more) bases in the area that are not so far away.
Squadleader Andx667 believes that the Players should go to the Mainentrance and find out what happend there. He also believes that Gamma Squad should be covered with one or more players in order to prevent them from dying.


The Squad decides to...
...follow SL Master_Of_Panda and SL Andx667 decision.
Gamma Squad needs Energy in order to power up the local systems. There are multiple ways of doing that, but the most obvious way is to reboot the Powerstation itself or one of the Back-Up-Powerstations. Failing that, they can still search the premises for Energy-Packs or Batteries, or if they have a Technican they could try to power up the building directly using the Energy in their Exo-Armors.




Current Situation (Updates in Blue):

just some general thoughts about mission style:

it would be cool if you find a way between the old rc601, where every win/loss of a mission resultet in something else, and a too dynamic way of story telling. it would be cool if failing a mission now has consequences in later chapters or even no consequence at all sometimes.

also we like the same thing: solving problems in different ways^^ , this give us the great way to have every game be unique. some sl/players tend to go a more secure way that offers succes without risk, but some like to take the risk in order to recieve something cool or just tell others: "we did it that way and won the game :-P"

the appearance of random missions or something that forces players to split up is a cool thing for ppl with higher exp but its hard to balance between "can be done without players" and "affects main mission too hard". but with some kind of trigger that check if players care about the object reduces spawn rates of the mission, this could be addresses.

soooo.... lets rock some notd:am

Then now something about "my" mission style:

The story mode is basically planned like this:
-You have to finish every problem you encounter, one after another.
-Its possible you have to deal with multiple problems at once and all have to be solved in order to reach the next stage
-How you solve the problems is of no importance. Every Problem will have multiple solutions and every solution will have its own advantages.
-You will have a limited amount of time and once that time is over, its GameOver.

Additional to that, I will throw random Events into the mix. You can ignore them or deal with them (Ignoring them WILL have consequences, from loosing certain options to stronger enemies).
The Game is supposed to notice everything and make a List that will be presented once the game is over. It will note if you took the easy/standard/normal way, or if you used your head and tried unusual ways which might earn you XP. In other words you will receive a Performance Record.
