I'm looking to start a game in either the Halo or Starcraft Verses. The plot is up for debate, as are when in the Verse it takes place. I am not willing to do a crossover. Intimate knowledge of the Verse is a plus, but not required.THIS IS A PLOT FOCUSED GAME!
Mature stuff is certainly possible, but it must be a natural development of the story!
Below are a couple of plot ideas, nothing concrete. Feel free to post your own! If we get some interest, we'll put up all of the suggested plots for a vote.
"I need a weapon."The Resistance
When they attacked Earth, the first place the Covenant landed was New Mombasa, a sprawling African metropolis mere miles from the Ark portal. Their invasion was swift and brutal, and their retreat even more devastating. However, the city remained occupied even after the Prophet of Regret fled to Installation 05, leaving vicious brute squads and groups of lesser Covenant to crush any semblance of humanity within the city in anticipation of the portal's opening. Amidst this horror, a small yet durable resistance has come together, fighting to retake their city and force the Covenant off Earth.Marooned
When the Pillar of Autumn
crash-landed on Installation 04, much of the crew was scattered over a large area of the ring. In the haste to regroup, some of the survivors were accidentally overlooked... One such lifeboat crashes in an idyllic basin, on the coast of an azure lake dotted with mysterious structures. Most of the occupants are killed, but a ragged handful endure. Thinking there were no survivors, no rescue is sent. Surrounded by mysterious alien ruins, they must evade the everpresent Covenant, survive the Flood infection, and unlock the mysteries of the ring before it is too late.
"Hell, it's about time."A New World
After the depopulating Brood War, Terrans renewed their efforts to expand and recolonize. Most of the territory lost to the Swarm was retaken, and a few new planets were settled as well. One such colony, named Prosperity, was a relatively barren world rich in vital ores. Although cold and possessing little native life, it was quickly settled by industrious people from all walks of life, looking to start anew. A large mining town named Bounty sprouted up. Fast forward four years, and the Swarm has returned, it's intent seemingly to eradicate all Terran life. They storm the planet, overrunning it within days. They appear to be searching for something. A Protoss fleet has also followed them to Prosperity, fighting the Zerg but doing little to protect the Terrans. Seemingly abandoned by the Dominion, the survivors of the initial assault desperately search for a way off world.Oblivion Incarnate
The Terrans, ever inquisitive, have discovered an alien shrine on a distant moon. Constructed by the Xel'Naga eons ago, the shrine is vast and sprawling, but seems to serve no known purpose. Our characters would be part of a research team who have settled here semi-permanently to investigate the shrine and it's builders. Although the Swarm initially avoids it during its resurgence, the isolated research team finds themselves stalked by a monstrous being that has awoken in the bowels of the shrine. An unholy fusion of Zerg and Protoss, this Hybrid is urgently searching for a way off world, and is more than willing to slaughter a handful of pitiful Terrans along the way.
