PostSubject: *FINAL* ELUNE & PLOT SYNOPSIS / NOTES WIP   Sat Jan 07, 2017 6:51 am





Aster's power combining the Zodiacx can either destroy the Voidwalker's altogether, or return them to their previous forms before they were experimented on.

Severin and Cult leader "partnered up" when Aster's father was alive. Father lost the majority of his abilities save for a few, weakening him dramatically, and as such, the Voidwalker population exploded and he couldn't keep up.

Despite what Severin thinks, the Cult Leader is manipulating absolutely everyone, even him. [ Aster will figure out that's the case and tries to convince Sev to realize the truth for Good Ending. ]

Voidwalkers give off a sort of miasma into the atmosphere, which causes Elune's citizens to commit crimes and creates a rise in violence. A prophecy fortold of this, saying that when all the stars were blocked from the sky, the Zodiac would awaken and release the power of the Signs, bringing a force to bear which could negate the miasma's effects and sate the VWs.

When the source of the Zodiacs' power is covered [ the constellations ], Aster is able to awaken the Zodiacs and take in their power when he gains their trust.


____________________________________________________


Elune is a city that at first glance, is like any other. Perhaps a bit cleaner, more upscale and more orderly than its neighbors, but that was what drew people to move there. Founded by the upper echelon of a cult by the name of simply The Company [ for now hah ]. They claimed it to be a perfect utopia for its citizens to live in, but in reality, something far more sinister was going on.

Aster, the main character, had returned to his birthplace of Elune in order to inherit the Shrine that has been in his family for countless generations. He didn't realize it before he left, but now that Aster is once again living within Elune's high walls, he begins to notice strange occurrences happening to the city's inhabitants. Not only that, but the city has fallen from its lofty height; rife with corruption, gang violence, and street crime, Aster is shocked at what his hometown has become. But Elune wasn't the only thing that had changed. When Aster passed beneath the walls of the city [ Darian beside him ], a wave of pain in his mind struck Aster back on his heels, making him fall unconscious. What he didn't know was that with his return, all 12 Zodiacs were in Elune...and as the Celestial, he has just set turning the wheels of fate.

A prophecy made centuries ago told of 12 individuals who would come to inhabit the city, that when brought together would bring great power [ control free will? rule by persuasion? create some artifact of unlimited energy? a weapon of some sort? ]. Because of this, the Company wanted to ensure that once someone moved to Elune, that they would be unable to leave. As time went on, only the keenest eyes noticed that whenever anyone tried to leave Elune, they would suffer acute memory loss, disappear, or simply return a day later with no recollection of ever having left the city to begin with.

But there was a second part to the prophecy that was far more important. It stated that there would be one person who was drawn to the Zodiacs, and only they had the ability to harness their combined power. Because of this, many have claimed to be the Celestial, able to wield the ability needed to bring "true peace to the human race", leading to the fanatic following the Company has surreptitiously gathered over the years. Despite all claims, however, not a single person has been found in Elune that could even remotely be the one from the Prophecy...until the day a red star burns across the sky, signalling that the ability has awakened within the Celestial... And The Company wants nothing more than to bend him to their will in order to control the Zodiacs and obtain the ultimate power.

__________________________________________________

and at some point Aster grabbed Lumeon to protect him - causing a trigger of his power and as he left at that moment the cult got worse because they felt the trigger.

Aster's power teleports the brothers or something and Darian finds them unconscious in a location. Darian moves to Elune when Aster goes back; figured work would be better in a more prosperous city, be closer to Aster, etcetc

Aster tells Darian stories about the city
but when they returns it's fallen dramatically, full of gangs and corruption

most of the ZX are patrons of a certain bar / restaurant and so are at least moderately familiar with one another, as well as Aster.

Opening ideas:

Aster's monologue speaks of choices and decisions like we originally discussed, probing questions at the player as we present shots of the world/images to set the mood.
(could have this before the opening scene, images or black screen)

Start:
Aster speaks to Darian, telling him what life was like in the city when he was a kid and how he used to be really well behaved (he got more mischievous after meeting Darian and being away from mentor) while Darian interrupts occasionally to laugh, question or not beleive some of the things he says - when he does it one too many times, Aster gives up on his tale (cuts off before getting serious about his dad? or something) and he playfully attacks Darian to shut him up - cue the friendly bromance smiles and laughs as they wrestle.
[Freezeframe on Darian(an aggravated or dramatic face) while Aster throws in a thought speech telling the player who this is] when the freezeframe continues to play, Aster dropkicks Darian across the room towards the door(doesn't have to be that dramatic) Darian laughs and curses at the same time at Aster's good comback and threatens he's gonna fuck him up - Darian's red face goes pale when he opens his eyes to look up and sees Cassius glaring down at him. The Mentor had entered the room.

Darian shits himself and staggers backwards onto his ass, feeling caught red handed. (he knows the consequences of distracting Aster from his homework) When Cassius questions what they were just doing, Darian stutters excuses saying it was somewhat relevant to Aster's homework. Darian continues to lie out of his ass and stands up, slowly backing away towards Aster who suddenly grabs Darian's arm as they both run at high speed through the window like a pair of kids in an adrenaline rush to flee from the guardian's wrath.

(Cassius freeze frame can come later. Each character should have some space between introductions - not all are intros, some are analysis' if they are a stranger to Aster)
__________

Good spot for an animated/song opening? or we can have this after the intro days.
__________

New scene:
The two are out of breath in a new location, sweat dripping down their backs as they look at each other, their faces turn from blank into a smile which breaks into laughter and relish in their joy of friendship. Darians says something like if Aster was really a goody two shoes, he certainly isn't now.

Opening Ideas V2:

//. Make some sort of Prophecy as the opening -- maybe have it read from a scroll, or voice-acted as we flash images of the Zodiac symbols / wheel.
//. Explain how Elune was created solely for the purpose of finding and controlling all 12 Zodiacs.
//. Maybe Aster explains the Prophecy and why he left -- noticed people leaving and coming back, memories being wiped, etcetc

OR

My favorite, have Aster's DAD tell him the legacy of the prophecy in a flashback from when he was a little boy, laying out the plot / backstory for the player as a memory for Aster?

Secondary royal trying to take over the upper classes. To be used as comic relief despite him being such a bad guy; dies in various ways throughout the course of the game. Azra could be at war with him, and even if player is on a different route, they still hear about it from rumors and such.

-- The one who gets royally fucked in the ass all the time. Like he could be about to take over the royal palace then a VW suddenly crushes him to death. Another, he'd be about to kill an MC then another MC suddenly punches his lights out or he gets run over, or trips over himself and falls off a cliff.



Severin made the first Voidwalker as a mistake, then the Cult leader began to manipulate him into coming to work for them. Sev's protege [?] then copied his work and went darkside, creating rogue Voidwalkers that overrun the city / outside world. Severin agreed to work for the cult time to time as long as he was given scientific freedom, allowed to pursue his own projects etc.

Quint and Severin were childhood friends; Sev has always pestered Quint and shoved knowledge in his uninterested face. Sev always ran to Quint, and the one time it truly mattered, Quint denied him -- something that still haunts him to this day. Changed their relationship dynamic and also caused them to take very different paths in life.

Cult leader killed Aster's father -- likely Aster's uncle. Wears a face mask, as do his followers. Wanted to inherit the power but never did, so ended up killing Aster's dad. Knows what Aster is capable of so is manipulating his life behind the scenes to draw him to the cult. Creating VWs out of humans, using them in experiments, etc. Also becomes part VW himself, allowing him to virtually control all Voidwalkers.

Kept his brother's body after he murdered him, keeping it cryogenically preserved to show Aster he killed his father during his endgame. Wanting to humiliate Aster, he orders him to defile his dad's corpse when Cassius will burst in to save his protege, flying into a rage at his lover's brother.

<center><i class="fa fa-warning" aria-hidden="true"></i> <i>Player Chooses Protagonist's Gender</i> <i class="fa fa-warning" aria-hidden="true"></i></center>
<p>As the child of Elune's leading Priest, the protagonist grew up in an upper echelon of society, learning and loving knowledge from a young age. However, when they were eleven, the Calamity forced our main character to flee the city, terrified as they held their older half-brother's hand. After looking for his/her father at the family Shrine, and seeing only blood and no one around, their sibling forced them to run away. Twelve years later, our protagonist has returned to Elune, and found it greatly changed from the peaceful, pleasant place he / she once called home.</p>

<p>The MC is known being friendly, and people often come to the family shrine they inherited to ask for adivce or simply drop in for tea and a small chat. Ultimately, the player will decide Aster's / Asteria's personality, traits, and actions. </p>
