Alright, here goes nothing. I’ve been working on this world I’ve been creating, and have finally created enough of it to open it to story development for a CoG game. The game ( as I see it) would be quite lengthy, probably being three to five releases long.
Without further ado, here’s the rundown.
The year is 5126. The universe is divided from a civil war, in which The God-General took up arms against the Royal Family and their closest noble supporters. The houses divided themselves, each settling under either the God-General or the Empress. The war lasted about fifty years, with the royalty emerging victorious, and the losing houses punished. It was decided that in order to ensure that a similar rebellion would never occur again, the heads of the Royal houses- Thane, Vacary, Sabine, and Maxis- would always remain in itter control of all martial aspects of life, while the losers were assigned agriculture, manufacturing, etc. The houses never openly wage war, but many if them really dislike one another. I’ll just give a brief description of each house and what they do so far.
THANE- Feared by all, the House Thane is the secret police of the galaxy. They each have ultimate authority to do as they please, and are never required to offer explanation for anything. Well, actually it’s a bit more complex than that. They have different what are called “bloodlines” within the house structure, each with unique genetic traits. There is a ruling council of the three “Royal” or pure blood bloodlines- Iudex, Carnifici, and Jurata. There are many other minor houses. I made a full list of who they are and what they do but it’s really really long so unless it see some real inquiries about it I won’t bother typing it all up. The members of House Thane are essentially the inquisitors, untouchable and completely unfair. Their homeworld is actually also the most secure vault in the world, and contains the mineral standard backup for the intergalactic currencies of the Empire. Needless to say, only the best and brightest are inducted into house Thane, and more often than not, the cruelest and most ruthless as well. (I have a lot more about them, this is just general ideas.)
Vacary- The military elite. These soldiers are picked at a very young age, and they wear the armor of their predecessor. The armor can interface with its wearer on a genetic level, passing down the skills, memories, and traits of the generations before into the current users brain. For example, if someone died because they used one close combat move and it was countered by a move, the next person to wear that suit would automatically recognize that situation and take appropriate action. This basically means that they get better every generation. The soldiers of this house are proud and noble, and despite the fact that they were on the same side during the Great War, they really hate House Thane. This is because they do not respect anyone who uses underhanded trickery(not skill, that they like) to gain victory. They also hate the Thanes for the fact that every year several of their recruits are taken away by the Thanes and gemeticaly modified into house thanes attack dogs. They become faster, at the cost of strength, but lose their ability to speak and communicate effectively. On another note, the Vacary Knights are the pinnacle of human capability- they are perfect in every respect that relates to combat. All of them are master tacticians, and battle strategy is crucial to their training.
Maxis- Simply put, the royalty. I need some real ideas for these guys, cause so far all they are is a cool name and a lot of money and power. But I suppose that’s more than enough.
Sabine- they handle trade and commerce. Not a single credit gets spent that they don’t know about. They also handle all intergalactic shipping, think like space usps, with military protection. They are known to be shrewd and wise, but lack in any sort of aggressive maneuvering, social or political.
I think I should mention that the ppl don’t get born into the houses, they get selected by the members of each house, and the best candidates and most desirables are auctioned off to the highest bidder, which is almost always Thane or Sabine.
Alright I have stuff do do now, but will complete this later on.
