Originally published at: Overdue Plot Update – Molten Aether News
Starting off here with an apology. I have found it difficult to get my shit together and keep plots moving, a recurring problem. Getting back on top of things here is a plot update for everyone.
Bucket and I have decided to reboot the Marine Force Recon raid in the Bone Nebula to reform it into a smaller and easier to manage mission. The new raid will be a small force intent on planting a transceiver into the stations computer network.
The final piece of the puzzle for the Exploring a Derelict plot is almost done, that being the alien entity itself. Once that is completed we should be able to begin the actual game. A most heartfelt apology from me on how long it has taken to go from idea to an actual plot on this one.
Last but not least for Blazing Umbra there is the redone Desert Phone Booth plot. After discussions with Dasfier and others we’ve got a new plot outline up and now we’ll get things set up. In particular a character needs to be created to be the plot antagonist who may be used later (if they survive) in future plots involving Onyx. We’ve always been short on antagonist characters which has somewhat limited plot development. There are other plot elements to outline but assuming everything goes normally we should be able to start the new plot within the next week or so. We will also need a Temporal Operative which I can play myself but anyone wishing to play that part (or the part of the Onyx antagonist) are welcome to drop me a message or ping me on Discord to let me know.
My main focus in this setting is the Corrupted Children plot. The setup for the plot is pretty well done but still have not called for players to participate and actually begin the plot. Since I’m just getting a lot of things fired backup, going to probably call for players next week once I have a chance to look over everything again.
Embers of Soteria
For the Return of the Fae we’ve done a call for players already and gotten some response. Ideally I’d like to have at least 2-4 Fae and about the same number of humans. I’m happy to start things with less. As of right now we’ve gotten response from Dasfier and Liz on the forum. Before going on and outlining the first act in more detail, I would like to have our cast of characters who are going to be there. Thus anyone wishing to play a fae or human for this should let me know as soon as you can. I really like this plot idea and am excited to see where it goes.
The return of the Necromancer on Elder Soteria is also in the planning stages. We’ve got out BBEG (Big Bad Evil Girl) and still have to come up with an outline for the first act. I plan to get that rolling by the end of this week and also do the general call for players who want to join. As previously said we already have some interest in this from Dasfier, Chubby, and Bucket. Others are welcome as this is going to set up (along with the Return of the Fae) for the bigger Weakening of the Veil plot.
In preparation for the Weakening of the Veil plot I’ve also started a thread to brainstorm a needed character for that plot. There is going to be an old wise wizard (male or female does not matter) who is going to be the only person still alive which can actually read the magic runes that protect Elder Soteria from the Dark Aether plane. Thus anyone who has any ideas for such a character is welcome to put their 2 cents in. I want to make the character unique and not just an NPC plot device, with the hopes of using them regularly for expositional purposes.
I know it’s been a while. I had expected to feel more like doing this stuff while I was in California but I’ve had a really hard time being comfortable sitting down to do things. I’ve mentioned it on the forum and in the chat before, so again my apologies for the plots and stories that I’ve left hanging. I would like to get more going on in Angelic Sins, I like the setting a lot but seems to be the least interesting to anyone. It does not help that I’m not particularly good at horror, it isn’t a genre that I like in media all that much.
Anyone with any ideas about plots or stories to do in Angelic Sins (or anywhere) I invite to let me know. I’m happy to put ideas on the list, though if I’m doing the development it may take me a bit. Everyone is welcome to come up with any of their own ideas and just get approval from the staff too. I will help out in any way that I can to get plots off the ground.
