[OOC] Matteo Arlotta and the Aresi Stone


Recommended Posts

The Aresi Stone is a story I'm writing about the deciphering of the Aresi Stone that could possibly take an Indiana Jones-ish turn. It will involve @Limonaia, @Sunset Sea Islands, and @PyeMcGowan initially, but other nations can decide to be involved later. How does this sound?

Huh!

From the title I thought you might be going for a knock-off Harry Potter from Alenveil :P

A couple of questions about this story, in the hopes of aiding with the planning.

  • Participation. Will the RP be open to all, semi-open, or closed (invite only)?
  • Setting. When (time) and where (location) is this taking place?
  • Characters. How many characters are involved? Are you introducing new characters or reusing existing ones?

@Orioni Semi-open, in the sense of the initial players will be Limonaia and Prymont, but they can forward the "letter" they're going to be sent to other nations that could help in the deciphering.

The time and place will be present-day at the Alenian Museum of National History. I chose the location because it seems like a place where research like this would be done.

I have not thought about how many characters there will be. I'm only sure about Matteo Arlotta. There could also be assistants of some kind to help.

I can see where one would think that! That's what I was thinking when I wrote it, the titles are pretty similar and different at the same time.

 

I forgot that @Prymont has been inactive for quite some time and would end up stopping progression. In this case, I'm changing the invite from him to @Sunset Sea Islands because of past situations showing that there are skilled archaeologists in his midst that could possibly know something like ancient Prymontian.

@Rihan

It's best if we find a way to include your character early on...I was thinking at some point your character could contact someone after this first meeting with the director of the museum? I don't know, this idea was half-baked...ideas from anyone else?

Edit:
Wait, I just saw your character's idea with sending someone from the Rihannsu embassy. I'm including him as I write.

I wanted to bring this up to the OOC chat before engaging this to find out when it would take place.

If you all remember the Kogaan Preservation Union (KPU), they are incredibly opposed to Limonaia's presence in the meeting. My proposal is that the KPU launches a terrorist attack against the museum, warning Matteo and trying to kill Pietro. Whether it kills him or not is up to interpretation. 

How does this sound?

I think it's an interesting idea, idk how willing I am to have Pietro be killed, but he can certainly be wounded as they try 👌

Having a proper antagonist will certainly help with adding some action to the whole ordeal.

Okay. An even larger idea has sprung into my head like Alenian Wheat. So, it's pretty obvious that Roksek is the leader of the terrorist group that's going to lead the attack on the museum. BUT, (and this is in a future sense,) what if Roksek denies having anything to do with the attack, and keeps trying to have the KPU in good faith (Maybe blaming another terrorist group, like the AA of PyeMcGowan). All of this is to weave together a plan for one of Roksek's motives: revenge.

I'm not sure how this is going to work yet, but what if Roksek, or a puppet of Roksek, cuts a deal with Rihan to sell them the Aresi Stone and gain funding...for a presidential campaign. With Matteo gaining popularity and archaeology rising along with him, could it be possible for Roksek (or his puppet) to gain a political foothold, start a campaign, and win by promising to fund archaeology? (Obviously, he's just trying to rise to power so he can get revenge on a Spaghetti Boi destroying some natives' culture.)

This seems unrealistic because third parties rarely win in politics, but tell me what you all think!

I guess it can be the...start of an answer? Maybe more exposition along the way to fill space. You can do whatever idea you deem fit, but the attack is still going to happen either way. Do whatever! 😀
