Post The Indie Storyline (and other things)
Since the other threads are doomed to become retarded again in the near future, I figure, it's apropos to open a thread just to discuss the storyline, characters and how we'll get the word out, without relying purely on advertising through sites like Desura and IndieDB.

So let's get to the basics first;

0. Who is the main story writer?
1. Who are the cast?
2. When and where would it take place?
3. Outline of the plot?

To quote from the other thread;

Quote:
The song eternal love would fit the bill, however, issues arise from which version to use and when.

To start this, why don't we listen to some GA music?

Quote:
Considering the Idea I have, although how that one pans out remains to be seen, something more triumphant and amazing, such as the original, or the 11 angel version, played before, during or after the final battle, in a cutscene, would be the most effective place to cause mass nostalgia boners.

If we really need to, I suggest that the 11 angels ensemble should be put as the sequel or an expansion pack. As the reputation of Rune Angels doesn't compare to Moon Angels. A plot to bridge the continuity would be required, but then the fans can focus on the more reputable cast.

0. Obviously me, I'd be the main story writer (However, it's more of a collab, I'm an Ideas man, though they tend to run into the inane, and insane)
1. Too many copy right risks playing with either of the original angel troupes, not to mention, the Moon Wing have no Emblem Frames or the El Ciel anymore, because the Val Fasq are retards. Chances are safest with an original cast of characters, rather than recycling well known characters and accidentally butchering their personality.
2. It could fit in two places, either in the small gap in space between moon and rune, OR, post the rune storyline, which, although far more daunting, provides more room to play with character development, and design.
3. The most basic outline for the idea I'm rolling with, is this "A new Angel troupe (I'm playing with the name on this one, soul seems the most fun. It's similar sound to Sol means it can make use of the previous angels tendency toward celestial bodies, while soul shares the mystical element that both Moon and Rune had.) beyond a new 'shrine/gate' on a diplomatic and exploration mission to meet and befriend the natives, while discovering what threats may lie beyond." Obviously there'll be some token evil (Whether he's Eonia style evil (peace through power) or Moonlit and Eternal Lovers Val Fasq evil (Imma fuck this species UP) remains to be seen) that the new angels have to face, as well as their own personal demons that make their bond with their commander (I dislike Kazuya immensely, he's insipid, my idea for a commander is closer to the somewhat rude, dopey, but strong willed and driven tact) such strong and much good. It's basic, but why mess with what works?

Do it, with Urobutcher style. Genocides all day.

I want the new characters darker and edgier for a surprise turn on the theme. Make all the personalities transition smoothly, instead of being Protag/Self-centric and leaving little to no character development for the rest of the cast.

For a VN, 4 years doesn't seem to be short. Milfeulle was 17 in the original series, and went to 21 in the second series. While most good VNs have their story to last few months in its own timeline, although there's a lot of things happened during that time. With that gap we can explain the transitions of the Moon and the Rune Angels, without having them to actually appear, but influencing the story.

Elaboration, elaboration...

Also, why don't we make the plot takes place before the original series? We can improvise there to explain a lot of things that the official series didn't. The concept of lost technology is a lot of potential, since there were no proper explanation of how it existed in the first place; it just appeared as if it was natural.

We're talking about breaking the fourth wall here, the angel troupe fighting insectoid aliens to defend earth to foster peaceful relations between Transbaal and the nuke toting green planet

Dark/edgy characters are easy, a robot with an identity crisis is deep as balls, a token goth loli vampire enthusiast with deep underlying issues about being accepted is simple as cake.

the reason I say small is, to do in interjection story, we'd need to thread the needle while orchestrating events that lead up to the Rune Angel Storyline, or risk messing things up irreparably, 4 years isn't short for a VN but it is a short time span for the preparatory events that lead to Rune. Consider how many things went batshit and changed between Moons end and Runes beginning. Milfeulle got trapped in the Shrine, Mint became the Blancmanche ambassador to the new galaxy (was it E.D.E.N. or N.E.U.E.), Chitose and Forte became Military Instructors, Ranpha became (was it a military diplomat, it's been a while since I checked up on GA II lore so) a diplomat of some sort, Vanilla began researching Nanomachines and Lost Technology on....um....whatever planet it was, and Tact became a fairly high ranked officer. For all that to have occured within 4 years means a very specific set of lines were followed.

I am actually considering a Pre-Chrono Quake Story. A "Height of the moons" idea, with the original emblem frames being piloted by different girls. Or if you meant A post-chrono quake, pre Eonia story line, I also thought of a "bringing law and order to the empire" sort of story. As I said, nothing is getting too fleshed out until things get discussed and we decide on a time period.

I support this. Although the original emblem frames must be 'de-evolved' somehow since they really are nothing more than recycled engines packed with conventional Transbaal weaponry. We can get more creative on what technologies applied to it. Or maybe we can write an entirely different universe that faintly leads to the creation of the original series.

I have no more suggestion on the plot for this time. What role should I take for now? Spellchecker? Beta tester?

Since no start has been made on making the game, chances are you and T.O.M. are gonna have ideas for characters and events bounced off you.

Post Re: The Indie Storyline (and other things)
So it took me losing a kidney and discovering there have been sold out Galaxy Angel LIVE events in the last 2 years to finally get these done.

Angel Commander:
Name: Daisuke
Personality: Laid back and carefree, with a serious streak relating to work AND romance. Tends to blow away the perceived norm by being an "unusual specimen", and exaggerates a large number of odd figures. Loves carrots. Powered by GAR.
Blood type: O-
Height: 183 cm
Eye Colour: Blue
Hair Colour: Red (techincally, burnt rust, that's legit a colour)

Ga-001:
Name: E(Emotional)-V(Variance)-E(Entity)
Personality: A humanoid robot, made to have human emotions, to replace and eventually remove the risk of the human element in any and all angel brigades. The first and only successful model, and considered dangerously close to being a liability due to her increasingly human like personality and identity crises. Powered by a Chrono-string, believed to be the cause of her increasingly human self-awareness.
Blood type: Taxpayers Hard Earned Dollars
Height: 167 cm
Eye Colour: Red
Hair colour: Gold

Why would you bring Kyubey into this?!



I like the ideas so far.

Obviously the robot's blood type is nanomachines.

COCAIIIINUM

Villain:
The Self:
Essentially just another timeline version of the Angel Commander, only crazy, and an asshole, and meant to be some big symbolic sack of shit about how humanities greatest foe is himself. Actually only exists because you can have so much fun playing with doppleganger characters. Also Powered by GAR. Only Physical Difference to Daisuke is in skin tone and eye colour.
Eye colour: Vermillion to purple, depending on how damaged the temporal plain is in an area

GA-002:
I had a good last name picked out for her, but her first name is Momoko. Because peaches.
Personality: Fun, outgoing, LOUD, somewhat annoying. The youngest member of the Brigade, comes from a Yanki girl gang, so she has issues with authority figures and men in general. Constantly refers to Daisuke as "Douchebag-heichou", because that isn't his name, or rank. She is also a closet super-hero enthusiast.
Blood Type: A+
Height: 145 cm
Eye colour: Green
Hair Colour: Also Green

Angel Stat Checker:
Name: The "lord of secrets", Roy Wolfgang
Personality: Smarmy, arrogant, and self righteous, as a personal security mechanism, both a telepath and an empath, and well aware of his gifts too. A suspicious, and somewhat slimy man when first met, later reveals a caring heart, strong soul, and desire to do right by his crew members and commanding officer, especially if they are in danger. A closet shipping enthusiast, and prone to giving the Commander advice on how best to get on an angels good side.
Blood Type: AB-
Height: 203 cm
Eye colour: Gold
Hair colour: Silver

No, just game breaking stat boosts


Also

I decided naming the Angel Commander is a BAD move, makes him impersonal, gonna keep him as Angel Commander, because, then he can literally have ANY NAME, fuck the rules bitches can all call him Commander-san

AND

He's clearly gotta be a Billy Idol fan and enjoy wordplay

AND

In keeping with the deserts theme for Angel Names

Gateau
THE GOTH LOLI MOTHERFUCKERS I TOLD YOU I'D FUCKING DO IT
She has no last name
Anyway

GA-005
Gateau, the Goth Loli
Personality: Introverted, moody, quite emo, BUT, not goffick, thus, able to be friendly to people who aren't goffs or punks, and she doesn't hate dumblydore, unlike enoby. Is actually a vampire, but isn't a sparkly fucker, and her bloodthirst is more a debilitating addiction than a supernatural thirst.
Blood Type: Yo Mama
height: 110 cm
Eye Colour: Crimson
Hair Colour: Blonde

I've also been thinking on stat types for the ships

And Gateau has this

Attack: C
Speed: C
Armor: D
Energy: D
And her special is a VAMPIRE STRIKE MOTHERFUCKERS, SHE HAS A HEALTH DRAAAAAAAAIN

MOE BLOB TIME

NAME: I forgot.
HOWEVER.
Personality: An adorable, and unlucky, magic user. MOE flowing out of all orifices except her magic ones, this character is clumsy, sweet and kind hearted, and a bit of a ditz, but magically gifted, unfortunately for her though, she can't use normal magic, only necromancy, which gets her shunned by EVERYONE. As a result, she suffers from very serious underlying depression issues.

Pilotss GA-004

Blood Type: MOE also known as AB+
Hair colour: Pink
Eye Colour: Blue

GA-003

Broccoli-chan
This one is clearly a reference to Broccoli the company

Personality: A bit of a romantic/comedian. Lover of romcoms. Big and sweet, with lots of love for everyone, even her enemies. The tallest of the angels, she's got lots of kindness and love for all her friends, but, she's constantly at risk of being taken from the angel brigade by a rival group.
Blood Type: Love
Eye colour: Pink
Hair colour: Dejikko Green

Ah yes, nobody loves necromancers. Something about disturbing the dead and walking corpses being terrifying. People are so silly.
