Hello, folks. Did you know that it was cold this week? For those of you who did not know, it was very cold this week. There’s nothing quite like standing on a sheet of ice in -20C weather for hours at a time while trying to call flight controls for a preflight. Every little step I took ended up with me on the cement. It wasn’t so bad until I thawed out and could suddenly feel my body again. Don’t worry though, there was only a 30% chance of me dying! But it doesn’t matter since I survived and got this weekly update for you all!
Wordcount: 4533 (Okay, so this week has been more Zuri. Probably going to be a lot of Zuri for a while. There are 28 scenes for Zuri’s route alone in the game. That’s not including anything involved in the main route or the investigation scene interactions. Not all of these scenes are super long, but the amount of content each route is going to get is pretty staggering. I’m going to be increasing my writing output to make sure things continue moving at the needed pace.)
Dakimakura: I put the orders in today. Interesting enough, almost all of the backers went with Faye. Faye is pretty adorable, isn’t she? On the flip, almost nobody wanted poor Zuri. As such, there will only be a very small amount of Zuri daki made.
Backgrounds: Development on the backgrounds is advancing. In Fates, there will be six major locations with each faction only getting to see five of the six. They are…
Celestia: Celestia is a neutral planet that serves as one of the biggest trading hubs in the galaxy. The thing about Celestia is that it when you get outside of the spaceports, people discover that the flashing lights and clean streets of the spaceports leads to a world that is struggling to survive. It’s people, outside the elite merchants, are barely able to keep food on the table. The food that does make it to its citizens are not the luxurious foodstuffs that are being funneled to the various worlds around the galaxy, but are what they can grow. With a 18% unemployment rate and restrictions on technology imposed by its ruling class, Celestia hides an underbelly of unrest and contempt for the galaxy. That hatred has lent itself well to a growing movement who wants to clean the crooked traders from the galaxy. Will that unrest help Natalie or motivate those who want to see her fail?
Tropolain: Tropolain is home to the mercenary political body of the Trilani Rangers. A private military force who takes commissions from both government and individuals alike, the Trilani are known for being able to find their targets and dispatch them to whatever afterlife they believe in. The Trilani are very rigid in their ways, being proud of their history and proud of their people. But there was a time before the Trilani arrived on Tropolain, a time when the planet’s native people once walked the world. Though they have disappeared from the planet, many of their secrets still lie hidden behind the protection of the rangers and jungles unexplored for ages. What secrets await the investigators under the traps of the rangers and the dangers of the jungle?
Jupiari VI- A world of beautiful waters and tropic beaches. With almost all of the landmass underwater, the few spots of dry land are heavily monopolized by floating cities and tourist resorts. Utilizing the water for the breeding of fish and hydroponic farms, Jupaiari VI is one of the most critical worlds in the Katajion Directorship. Legends say that temples of gold and treasure lay beneath the farms and the tourists, but the tough laws on any sort of activity that could damage the planet have barred all from trying to discover the truth behind the stories. Will Natalie be the first to find these sunken temples or will she (yet again) find herself on the wrong side of the law?
Ona’thon- A barren world of sand and storm laying on the border of the Katajion Directorship and the Ryu’llian Republic. Ona’thon is the homeworld of the winged Draemon warrior race. Except for the holy city of Emerald Winds, there is nothing but suffering and sorrow on the sands of Ona’thon. They say it is these hardships and beliefs in their caste system that has kept the draemons strong and wise. Many seek the City of Emerald Winds to find harmony, to find their place in the madness of the universe. It is here that the story of Natalie and perhaps the universe itself will come to an end…
Nimross/Unnamed Raltin Ship- The last two are how you are gonna be getting around the universe! For our Katajions who remain loyal to the force, the Nimross is being repurposed by Sector Three Intelligence (by which I mean Director Doichu is totally stealing it from the Sector Eight Space). Though her crew may change, the bargain bin cruiser lives on. The Raltin ship is the royal ship bestowed upon Alexi by the emperor himself. Though it is small, no expense has been spared to make it anything less than a ship worthy of an agent of the emperor. Sadly, one thing was forgotten… It came with no name. Which is where you all come in!
Right now, we are taking suggestions for the name of the new investigation ship piloted on the rebel side! Go to the forum site where you can talk about anything Rising Angels related and some other awesome sci-fi games and give your suggestions now! Next week we’ll take the best suggestions and hold a vote on what the new ship should be named! Suggestions do need to be within the realms of socially acceptable and reasonable. Any suggestion like the “Mike Hawk” will be dropped.
-There is also an ask.fm site I run. If you ever have any questions, story or otherwise, feel free to ask them here.
That’s all for this week. Remember, go out there and cast your suggestion today! Until next time, Chief out!
We need a new video of the post! Here’s one I remember from my youth!
