I’d like to preface this with saying I normally wouldn’t like to post something without making a demo for it. However, I think it is good to bounce ideas off of the community so I can craft a better story. Secondly I might not have a ton of time to work on this because of college starting up again. I may not have much time to work on this until summer, but I would like to hopefully craft a demo before then. I have an idea for a series I’d like to create but before that I want to make a different one so I get used to using choice script.
The setting for this story I had in mind would be something along the lines as Mass Effect meets Monster Musume. So instead of monsters you have aliens. The overarching story has to do, as you may have guessed a truce or armistice between Earth and the newly discovered aliens. It’s something like Earth inadvertently entering a preexisting war and starting for them a first contact war.
Now where your MC would come in. You are the son or daughter of The Admiral responsible for the turning point in the war which created the opportunity for this truce to take place. Tensions are still very high as of a few weeks ago Earth and the aliens were at war with each other. So instead of relying on ambassadors due to mistrust of each other it has been agreed that the sons and/or daughters of prominent individuals will cohabitate to see if they can be trustworthy enough to pursue peace. While acting as valuable hostages they will also be able to see how those who are not professionals in politics handle living with those who were, until recently the enemy.
So where the hostage part comes into play. You are now living on what is to be considered neutral territory, A recently established space station built into a mined out husk of an asteroid. (kind of like Omega) I’m thinking the size is somewhere along that of a medium to large city. You and the others participating will be bared from leaving for the next year. Like house arrest or umm… city arrest, station arrest?. You will meet the others over the course of the next few weeks as they arrive.
As for the rest of the population, it will consist of various other aliens most of which took no part in the war. I’m thinking the station was a joint effort by them and considered neutral ground because of this.
You will be living in a fairly large estate for the time being, built in mind for the needs of everyone who will be taking part in this little social experiment.
Will everyone be able to coexist or is war inevitable?
