Space Opera RPG

Postby Chocola » Sat Dec 15, 2012 2:19 am

I don't post here often, but now that I have some free time, I am currently making an ISML sRPG to the space opera theme. Not all factions will be in it and more factions are created to fit the plot. I need your help with thinking up "creative" names for the factions that are newly created.

The list of playable characters is planned to be 20, and I don't plan on adding more because it's very script-intensive and graphics-intensive. Other characters will appear in the game in some way. Unmarked characters may not appear, but they still may be mentioned and are officially part of the game.

game wrote:[P] Playable
[A] Will appear

KyoAni Empire
~Suzumiya Haruhi (10) [P]
&Togashi Yuuta & TakanashiRikka (9) [A]
@Hiiragi Kagami & Hiiragi Tsukasa (8) [A]
@Fujibayashi Kyou & Fujibayashi Ryou (7) [A]
@Hirasawa Yui & Hirasawa Ui (6) [A]
+Asakura Ryouko (5) [A]

+Kanzaki H. Aria [P]

Satelight
~Katou Marika
&Chiaki Kurihara
@Sheryl Nome
@Ranka Lee
+Erza Scarlet [P]
+Lucy Heartfilia
+Hinamori Amu

A-1
~Kazumiya Rio
&Yuuki Asuna

@Isara Gunther
+Juvia Loxar
+Wendy Marvell [P]
+Morgiana

Sunrise
~C.C.
&Lafiel Abriel
&Relena Darlian
+Kikyou [P]


So according to this list, we do not have space opera themed names for:
-P.A. Works
-Seven Arcs (cannot be TSAB)
-Madhouse
-Type Moon
-Satelight
-A-1
-Sunrise

If you guys can think up some creative names, I would be delighted to use them if they are good. In this game, each faction is considered a territory.

And finally, if you like sRPGs, please don't be too excited yet. There's no time frame for this game, and who knows if I'll get stumped somewhere. But a good start can be encouraging.

Well for Type Moon the obvious name would be the Dark Moon Kingdom and have everyone live on moons around gas giants or something. Not very creative though I guess. Although it really does need to be a kingdom since it has a king and a moon princess.

For Satelight something like The Guarding Light Talent Dispatch Agency? Since you can make Amu a singer/caterer and the pirates actors. Although I haven't seen Macross Frontier but I know it has something to do with singing in space which means it must be possible to do something like that?

Anyway it might help if you make it clearer where exactly everyone is from. And explain what ~ & and @ mean... And what promotion means as well...

Okay, Dark Moon Kingdom sounds really good. I like that. I'll use that if someone doesn't come up with a better one.

About "The Guarding Light Talent Dispatch Agency", it's not bad, except I have a feeling that's too long for a game textbox, and it would have to wrap in a weird way. If possible, I'd like 3 word names or fewer so they're not a mouthful. Thanks for your suggestions though.

Promotion is just a game mechanic. It means the character gains extra abilities to use certain weapons when they are promoted. The promotion system exists in games like Final Fantasy 1 and Fire Emblem. ~&@ and the like are just ranks. I just wanted to differentiate who is the leader of each territory and so on. I haven't made up the names for the other ranks up, but you can very well insert generic terms like "lieutenant" and such.

That is currently the starting point yeah. I just want those "territories" to have space operatic sounding names, and if we have time to be creative later on (like titles for the ~ characters) then we can do that too.

For PA Works I'm thinking something like:
People's Army/Working People's Army
Worker's Alliance
Autonomous Workers Party
They all sound pretty communist though... But it kind of fits with Yuri being the leader of a rebellion and Canaan being a type moon mercenary character...
Although I have no idea how you've planned the plot. So it might not fit at all :lol: ^^; .

That may...really work. I like People's Army the best because Yuri does sort of control her "crowd" like an army and not an alliance/party. It can be communist sure. ^^;

I guess I can reveal some of the plot without spoiling much. KyoAni Empire is the "bad guy" here and has "absorbed" P.A. Works. Everyone else (except for the Revisionists) are trying to stop them. I know this sounds cheesy and bad but it's more than that, maybe.

Ah sorry I wasn't trying to pry. That was supposed to be an off hand statement. ._.
And they don't have to be communist it's just that worker's party/people's army etc sound communist...

Any way for Madhouse I thought maybe something like Royal House of Tsubasa since there are so many CLAMP characters in that group.
Although I'm not sure if Rimi would fit in that.(Is Rimi from Chaos;Head BTW?) Well don't use it if it doesn't fit because I can't think of anything better at the moment. @_@

Then again I wasn't really thinking of Mei either with the Army... But she seems kind of passive so I thought maybe she'd just get caught up in it.

Okay, I updated the first post to include last names of characters. What I will say is that the names of the territory don't have to fit for everyone in it. We can just focus on the leader if that gives us something better.

About the Revisionists, all I can say is that they're sort of like a group of renegades who have deserted their kingdom, sort of like the Akatsuki. Except the revisionists keep a low profile and are not hated. Its members are just marked as missing because on one knows the group exists. If someone can come up with a better name, that would be great too.

I have not come up with more yet, but I wanted to know if you were still looking as there hasn't been much said about this.
