AC collab fan fic?

Postby Triple Zero » Sat Jul 21, 2007 1:43 am

Here's an idea I have.

Because I'm too busy with other stuff to do a real fan fic, and I'm way to lazy (busy and lazy, not a good combonation. XD ) to actually put the effort into it...

What if we started up a collaborative Fan fiction? I can set the mood, the plot, and the back story, but the day-to-day writing would be done by anyone who wanted involved. (including me)

Or, in other words, descriptive role play under a different name perhaps?

Tell me what you think. I'd love to start one, but only if others are interested.




Backstory:

The world lives inside of a giant super-city.

Earth is covered in this massive city, and people are not allowed outside.
The city is best described as a utopia, with large flowing plants, running water in the streets, and plenty of money. This is maintained by the iron grip that the government holds on the corporations.

The Government keeps the city intact, because no one can become powerful enough to stop anyone else. Certain corporate research is simply banned, because it could lead to an imbalance of power.

So corporations are basically having to fight eachother, without being able to have actual armies or forces.

Except Ravens.


Ravens are the one exception to the Government's control policy about Arms, Research, weapons, and power control, because Ravens are issued, hired, controlled, and kept in line by the government.

In exchange, Ravens are allowed freedom from the city. Something that no other citizens, not even the corporations can do, unless specifically issued by the government to do so.

Because outside, is a completely different world.

By starving the earth of resources in it's other half, the ground became barren, the earth became harsh. With the humans sucking all of nature into their giant city, the remaining life on earth slowly died. After several hundred years of this city's rule, no one knows what exists outside.

However, a few government employees, and a few Ravens, do.

Outside, a human society has branched.

Ravens taking missions to go outside, turned on the government, and fled. Eventually leading to the reproduction of a pure Raven race. They plan rebellion. They call themselves, the New Nest. Wanting to revive the ways of old, where ravens were hired by corporations, and weren't bound by strict restrictions that preventing corporations from even advancing their technology to suit the Raven's needs.

Raven Control, and the New Nest. Each one is formed from the same people, ravens, but they each have different views on what it truly means to be a raven.


These are the corporations, and government branches: (Yes, they are from my RPG site, which I might abandon, because the the amount of work needing to be done on it, and me trying to find a good RPG system to use)

Advent.INC
Leader in AC part development, equivalent to Mirage/Zio Matrix. They produce n more advanced parts than Core Armaments, but they produce parts that serve new and different purposes. For this, many ravens prefer them over Core Armaments.

Core Armaments
A single corporation, split in two. They are primarily separate, but are owned by the same person. One produces AC parts, the other, MT designs.


Core Armaments MT design
The First branch of Core Armaments. Leading MT design, produces few parts, but is a great resource for a Raven looking for MT consorts. They hire ravens very rarely, and only when they are desperate. Whether their requests get past the government, is another problem they have to deal with.

Core Armaments AC design
The second branch of Core Armaments. These guys produce a wide variety of AC parts. Equivalent to Crest/Emeraude

Anarchy Rebellion
A well-organized terrorist group. They strive to eliminate government control, and break down large corporations. They are especially skilled at coaxing ravens to their cause, turning the Raven against the corporations they once served. Those few individuals who know about the New Nest speculate that they might have some involvement with the Anarchy Rebellion.

The Government.
The World-wide Earth Government is put into place by the Citizens, to prevent corporations and Ravens from going out of control. Over time, it became the sole power in the world, and controls everything. Instead of a single, focused government, it is divided into groups that manage specific things, to enhance it's ability to control such a large city.

Intelligence Control
This is the Government control system that has one sole purpose: Prevent certain information from being known. One of the Government's main control over corporations, is that they are denied access to certain areas of research.

Arms Control
This is the Government control system that prevents corporations to form armies or large masses of firepower, thus preventing "True" war. Instead the corporations use their MT defenses and hire ravens to do their work for them, because they can't over power each other. This is why Ravens are needed in this society. All ravens however, have to be approved by the government, and meet strict government policies.

Raven Control
This is the government control system that prevents Ravens from using ACs outside of Mission Parameters, or having personal contracts with a single party. They have the most influence on the corporations and Ravens, since they decide which missions assignments should be given out, and to who.

The Advent Weapons Development Team
It's a small branch of Advent, that was once it's own company. Low production and missed deadlines sent it bankrupt, until Advent bought them out. Now they develop new and unusual AC parts under Advent's name. Rough Equivalent of Kisaragi/Balena. The government prevents them from using their full potential in their weapons development.

so, something like what we're doing with the gundam thing/
I may jump in on it.

What AC-era will this be in, btw? AC1, 2, 3, NX-LR, 4, or something completely new, with new custom parts?
Armored Core has changed.
It's no longer about recreation, originality or ability. It's an endless series of xeroxed metabuilds, made by copycats and sheep. Armored Core, and its consumption of time, has become a hackneyed ruse. Armored Core has changed. Unoriginal players pilot unoriginal ACs, use unoriginal setups. Overpowered weapons on their mech atrophy and degenerate their abilities. Design copying. Weapon copying. Player copying. Tactic copying. Everything is observed, and then copied. Armored Core has changed.

Here's the idea for the parts:

You can fill in whatever name you'd like, and describe the part. You can use names from the other games. (since it really doesn't matter) For custom names, please make a full serial number/name. Yo ucan use whatever format you want.

You also can use any part from any of the games, EXCEPT Karasawa and moonlight. You know why. ROZ might also be a part to stay away from, because it will make your AC have very high energy. You CAN edit the part's serial code, if you want to include a part that doesn't exist yet. Or just stick 2 after something you want to make an addition on.

Don't worry about Overweight, or arm weight, but as long as you are realistic, it won't matter.

(meaning, heavy frame and heavy weapons, on a tiny lightweight legs set won't work.)

AC4 PARTS AND IDEAS/PHYSICS (QB) ARE NOT ALLOWED.

NOTE: YOU ARE ALLOWED MULTIPLE ACs, but you can only use 1 at a time. The others stay in your garage.

Do it kinda like this:

Pilot Name: Triple Zero
AC Name: Hard Contact

Head: Eye4 (Lightweight head, with good functions and good defense, but high energy drain.)
Core: U2 - (Yeah, from LR. Midweight well-balanced Hanger core)
Arms: LORIS (Yes. From LR. Mid-heavy high defense arms)
Legs: 89F (Low energy comsumption, with high load limit. From LR)
Booster: TP (High power, high usage drain. From LR)
FCS: F37H (Horizontal with good Parallel sight, max lock 3)
Generator: LOTUS2. (low Cal value. Very high Output, low capacity, high redzone. LOTUS design with improved output. More weight. )
Radiator: Ananda (Low energy drain, but with high energy cosumption)
Inside: None
Extension: Roe2 (Laser Rifle ammo extensions)
Arm Unit R: Shade2 (powerful, well balanced laser rifle)
Arm Unit L: LB4 (High range, above average damage energy blade)
Back Unit R: SATARYOS2 (middleweight Middle missile. 36 ammo, max lock 1. Fires two missiles per lock. )
Back Unit L: None
Hanger Unit R: 89/Beam (Hanger storable laser rifle, 500 damage, 36 ammo, 55 firing interval. Low wieght. )

Optionals (You can pick 5 optional parts to enhance your AC. NO OP-I. Just list the effects, not the name)
Energy weapon damage+
Energy Weapon reduced firing interval
Energy Weapon reduced energy usage
Generator Capacity+
Generator Output+

Looks like fun. I'll definately give it a shot. Not sure at how good I'll be at doing this or how much free time I'll have, espceially in the next few weeks. I have Marching Band Camp starting, then I have work on the weekends. Ugh.

But I will keep this in mind.

I don't get it, why are SAWA & ML off limits?

Id figure high attack capacity, especially AC2 Sawa when combined with Damage Boost and Fire Rate Increase Inside parts which makes it practically a slow firing machinegun

anyway though sounds like fun, I think I'll revive one of my AC3SL ACs for this....I miss that game

Okay so the way I'm seeing this, is that basically that first post sets up the universe, and then we all just kind of write our own stories within that universe, so really it's like several fics in one.

I don't really Armored Core anymore, but I've been heavy into MechWarrior Online lately. If you play, shoot me a friend request (same name on there, The Errant)!

Well, the SAWA 1&2, i can understand, but the MWG-KARASAWA & the KRSW? I mean, thats a perfectly reasonable gun, and the ML? what if someone like SS wanted in, the quintessential blader isn't allowed to use the quintessential blade?? :?
I'm not asking for myself, I'm neither a blader nor a sawa user, but what about the people who are?

I suppose if used fairly they are open.

But AC1s, and 2s Sawas were pretty uneven. AC3's was only bad if used on an UW Midweight AC. (Even though It still had lowere firepower than AC2's due to high weight)

As for moonlight, I'm a lot less strict about it. Go ahead and use it if you want, but no Moonlight/'Sawa combos.

Or you can create your own weapon based along Moonlight or the Sawa.

Hey, another joint type fic thing! I'm in. It'll give me an excuse to get writing. If only this had come up at the beginning of the summer instead of the end I would be able to contribute more before the school year starts.

Ah, well. I'll do what I can.

I've already got a build idea too... :twisted:
The character is another story though.

A joint fic? Count me in, man. I'll post my character's bio and AC designs later. Also, I've got a question for you. Must the custom parts be similar to already existing parts, or can we create something that hasn't been seen in the games, like a solid metal sword, for example

@Squall: Anything that can Pilot and AC, or can reconfigure an AC to be piloted by them. Genetic Experiment sounds fine.

@Everyone else: I'm starting it here in the next week sometime, so get your ACs and pilot bios posted.

Morgan Flint
Gender: Male
Age: 31
Skin Tone: Light tan
Height: 175 cm
Weight: 75 Kg
Hair: Light Brown, long
Eyes: Green
Clothing: Camouflage pants, Belt with various pouches, white T-shirt, and a leather jacket.

Bio: Morgan Flint ran away from home at a very young age to join the arms control branch of the Earth government. At the time they were in need of manpower and were willing to accept just about anyone. Beginning his life as a career soldier, Flint survived several battles by his outstanding decision making skills in the field, as well as dumb luck. At age 18, he was assigned to a special operations unit which utilized what were considered at the time advanced weapons. After a botched rescue mission, a Raven captured him and eliminated all of his comrades. While facing execution by the Anarchy rebellion, Flint managed to escape his imprisonment and flee to a nearby New Nest operations center.

Ironically, the very Raven who had captured him took him in, teaching him how to pilot an AC. Flint came to accept the fact that his compatriots were killed by this man. For that particular raven, there were no enemies unless he was threatened or on the battlefield.

Morgan Flint maintains this ideology as he himself takes on missions as a Raven.
