PostSubject: Team Magma   Thu Jan 29, 2015 2:10 pm

You can see the original chat discussion here.
http://ciphersyndicate.forumotion.com/t2008-dual-topic-some-proposed-dragon-lore-and-team-magma

Making my own topic for Team Magma though since the Prime Dragon discussion will most likely take precedence in that topic.



Team Magma will be an organization dedicated to the "removal" of outsiders from Adonia as well as the overall progression of Adonia itself. It will be headed by Maxie who will retain the same appearance and personality he had in Omega Ruby. One major difference however will be that he is secretly a dragon in human form. A fact that likely won't come into play or even be officially revealed until the final battle with Maxie. Though higher ups in Team Magma might already be aware of the fact.

Team Magma itself would have a main base on a volcanic island, but they can have several smaller bases dotted around the map for characters to explore and clear out for loot and experience. Oh, and possibly information, but we all know our adventures mostly want the loot. *shot* Though I imagine that clearing out a base or two would earn that person the attention of a Magma Admin. Speaking of, I'm thinking the Magma Admins also make an appearance. Not even The Great Maxie can lead everyone by himself after all.

The two Admins from the game are up for grabs if anyone wants them, though people are free to make their own original admins if you want. Also I think Steak could play a good Tabitha. Just throwing that opinion out there.

As for how Team Magma works in a combat sense, a good number of them have tamed wolves to fight for them and some even have Mightyena. There are also some with fire and ground pokemon. Others can be summoners that can summon fire elementals or other beasts. I imagine the higher ranking members like the Admins would have the better summons or pokemon.

Also if people want to get more into it, feel free to play your own grunts. Depending on how the plot with Team Magma goes, those grunts could have a role beyond just being related to Team Magma. It's possible that at the end, Maxie could repent his actions and the team could reform into just being dedicated to Adonia's advancement and no longer do bad things to outsiders. In that event, I see no reason why Magma team members couldn't interact with other characters in a more friendly way and more often. They could even be shipped if you want. This includes grunts, Admins, and even Maxie himself if he survives. (Not sure who'd want to ship with Maxie other than Courtney though *shot*)

The majority of Team Magma would most likely be backgrounded after their main plot is done, but the characters involved could still be used. It's just that with the team no longer a "Big Bad", focus would shift away from them. Also, ideas for Team Aqua are in the works. They could be a pirate group, they could be a group in direct opposition to Team Magma that also has shady practices, or they could be something else if another idea comes up.



Feel free to share your own thoughts, think up potential plot elements, characters, etc.

Pardon my, ehm, out of the loopness. Chat's still being a bitch (srsly last 3 months doe), but I feel like I should say something. And ask a few Q's for mah clarity. (Tried topic chatlog, but my net keeps crashing so screw it)

1) Are the Magma guys racist against just the Outsiders, or are there groups in Adonia that they mistrust as well.

--forthcoming, maybe--

For now at this stage of the idea, they just mistrust outsiders. Mostly because they are scared and not all outsiders are actually good people. They are also a group that wants to see the world progress and if they feel certain people will get in the way of that, they'll be against that group.

Also if Team Aqua is brought into existence, they'll naturally be against each other.

Been a while, so slight bumpage here. Any other ideas to be shared or discussed concerning Team Magma? Characters people want or anything?

No, but I'd like to keep my options open.

I'm only asking because I think Team Aqua could provide an opportunity for one of my characters.

Well I was playing around with the idea of Archie being a childhood friend of Maxie and setting up a rival organization, but I have nothing definitive. It also might be more interesting if someone else lead Team Aqua. I already lead Team Magma AND have a Koopa Kingdom.

Firstly, Placid Cove and Aqua Shipyard are on the same island, so I was thinking Dangier could get involved with Team Aqua. Especially if he had to pick sides, since he has a fear of fire. I was thinking I could use him to show some insight into Team Aqua and show that while they aren't as aggressive (especially on land) they are definitely as shady as Team Magma. And I could play Archie, but even if I got involved in the Team Aqua stuff I wouldn't need to play Archie at the beginning.

Two of my new characters, Momo and Meres, are orphans in a village up north. Meres is a reckless boy who runs away to have an adventure, even though he lacks skill with the sword. I planned for him to develop water-based powers. What I had been planning was writing Momo's journey to find him and bring him back safely, having Meres be potentially kidnapped by Team Aqua grunts (and Shelly) trying to use him to wipe out Team Magma.

Another idea I'd had was that while Team Magma might have bases all around the land, Team Aqua would only have bases on small islands or coasts, and their overall headquarters would be a pirate ship. While with Team Magma, adventurers would sneak into bases, with Team Aqua it would be more defensive, with Team Aqua carrying out raids or, more commonly, smuggling illegal items. Their hold on the world would be much less entrenched, but far more fluid. Puns intended.

And I had the idea that Archie would not be the exact parallel of Maxie (as in, he wouldn't be a dragon or a primal Kyogre) - nor would he be a summoner. He would have the ability to cast curses on people and transform them into monsters (though he can't control them, so he does it rarely).

But this is all an idea. If anyone else has a better plan or you'd prefer to just scrap Team Aqua, that's fine.

Note: The first idea (in which Aqua is less aggressive) is an alternate idea from the others, which are separate but compatible.

I'll have to think about these ideas for a while, but I'm not against them. If anyone else has any input, it's welcome.

If this song hasn't been used yet, I propose it as a Team Aqua theme:
