In danger of losing during a civil war for the future of a galactic empire, the Royal family sent their baby daughter away to protect her from the encroaching war. Whilst taking a detour through uncharted space to avoid enemy forces, the ship she was on is caught by an anomaly and forced to crash land. Nearly two decades later, a Knight of the Reborn Empire is sent to investigate the fate of the princess so that the future successors of the empire can be decided. Retracing the steps of the lost ship, the knight's own ship suffers the same fate. When he recovers consciousness, he finds himself lost on an unknown world, where two primitive stone-age cultures battle, and he finds the girl, now a woman and every bit as savage as the native inhabitants.Type:

Player for one or two female role(s). In a sense, this is a sort of reverse-Tarzan story, but with a more sci-fi/sword-and-planet
(think John Carter of Mars) feel. The Human heroine is considered the most beautiful creature on the planet (aren't all human women to aliens?
) and is highly desired as an object of lust. The non-human female likewise idealises her childhood friend as a thing of beauty, except now there is a male version as well... On a non-sexual level, she also serves as a sort of story aide to develop the tribal culture of the planet.Content/Themes: Conflict*
, Quest for Pregnancy*
, Romance, Survival*Development:
The planet at large is dominated by two savage cultures – the
(proper names pending). I'm thinking that the main heroine has been held close by the orc tribe as a prize, with whom she has lived most of her life, and wants to leave and see the world she only hears about by story. Like the Tarzan premise, she knows she's different from the others, but not sure why – at least until she meets the male lead. This should provide the original impetus for her to get out (followed by her close friend if played).
The journey to her crashed ship may be far, perhaps on the other side of the world (the orcs being nomadic) so it's a long journey (perhaps in the vein of 10,000 BC style journey) and with self discovery on the horizon with every step. And now with one of her kind in reach, the prospect of motherhood, what seemed a long forgotten dream, looks to be in reach. Being a savage, she's forward about her desires, but might be a little hesitant as she doesn't know what 'courtship rituals' her people would use. There still is the problem that she's still a object of high desire amongst the natives of this world...
I'm also seeing a Tech vs. Natural living sort of theme. In addition, although this is a sort of low-tech sci-fi setting, I'm not averse to adding some form of mysticism in the form of some sort of ability similar to, say, The Force from Star Wars.
Early 20s; Height:
Chosen because of politics and family prestige, rather than experience due to Empire politics and his distinctive military record, Kayden takes his responsibilities as a landed noble seriously. He admires the royal family almost to a fault, especially for the stability they bring to the empire, and is intent on successfully completing the mission he has been assigned. Like any Knight, he's chivalrous, courtly, and cultured among friends, but the war with the rebels has given him a ruthless streak when it comes to enemies. Kayden is a survivor in the sense that he does not give up easily, and would rather die with his gun/sword in hand rather than because he didn't make the effort to try and live.
He is unlikely to want to engage the princess in carnal trysts (at least to begin with) simply out of a matter of respect for royalty (that and facing castration if he's ever found out). That said, the time he's spent in the war means he hasn't spent any intimacy with a woman in a long time...Talents:
A capable warrior, Kayden is used to technological arms and armour, though once the armour loses its power, he's bound to be tested to his limits, being accustomed as he is to the edge he is used to having with it. He has working knowledge of medical techniques that could be used on the battle field.
