This thread is mainly for me to talk to myself and keep everything logged. Feel free to add input.
Setting: The CITS system.
Earth- Underwater (Aquatic Human sub species)
Mars (Martians new name recommended)
Io Moon of Saturn (Ionics)
Coalition of Inter-Terrestrial Sovereignties. (CITS)
Humans: If you don't know look in a mirror.
Aquatics: Humans with some minor evolutionary changes for the enviroment such as gills, larger filmy eyes, shorter more pointy Asian like hair, ect...
Ionics: Tall spindly characters with compound eyes two three jointed arms and toe feet.
Lunar Corsairs: A species driven from their home planet due to over industrialization. They now roam the systems looting any species that holds any technology of value. Now that the CITS system is at war the Corsairs find much possibility in the system by looting warships and cargo ships transporting war material.
CITS: The all encompassing group that unites the species in the system, much like the U.N but more of a government.
League of Nations: Created after WW3 and the collapse of the U.N. back in 2078.
The Outer System Alliance (OSA): The origional CITS created when the Plutarians came across the Ionics. An unnoffical sub group of the CITS.
The Inner System Alliance (ISA): Much like their Outer System brethren, the Aquatics, Humans and Martians joined forces until they joined the CITS although closes ties still run deep within them.
Zarism: The religious group that dominates Pluto.
Needvark Corkensved- An oddity of any world, an awkwardly lanky fellow with feminine tendancies.
Antagonist: The leader of the Ionics, twisted by *blank* and now believes that by using the secret of the ancient structure and can make his people dominate the rest of System.
Plot: A mining expedition started by the illustrious Plutarians on a moon of Neptune quickly reveals an ancient construction created by a lost alien species. Soon the Solar System breaks into chaos as the leader of the Ionics attempts to sieze the construction after stealing it's dark secret from the protagonists archalogist parents (who are murdered by the antagonist). Once he hears this news the protagonist finds a secret storehouse where his parents left enough supplies and blueprints so that he learns The Secret and is now able to depart from the planet and journey to the edge of the Solar System and save the System from impending doom.
