Darwin's Soldiers 3 Discussion; 3rd part of the the DS

Here, the 3rd part of Darwin's Soldiers can be discussed. What has happened since the second RP ended, the fate of Pelvanida, etc.

It is also the place for plot twists and character profiles to be placed after the RP starts.

So far here is what is confirmed:

It is more "wide ranging" (based off the Insane Cafe 3 and LB&T's Pavlov's Checkmate). This means that the characters are not confined to a certain area. Makes sense because they have to search for the lab. So will be scenes of the characters in hotel rooms, stores, gas stations or whatnot.

It is set not in Nevada, but in Washington or Oregon state.

I like this idea. It'll be fun letting the characters explore different locations; the outdoors is one place that we don't get to see much in Darwin's Soldiers.

What are we thinking should be the title?

Well the military ends up taking a lot of flak for what happened at Pelvanida and they do not want to attract even more trouble by pursuing Dragonstorm, at least officially.

I have not decided on the title yet.

I am not sure about that title because, for all I know there may be another sequel but I am leaning towards the fact that this will be the end of the DS trilogy.

I also want a name to tie in with the "Darwin's" theme.

I'll quote my submission from the "Ask Me" section:

Quote:
 
Another option is Darwin's Soldiers 3: Disruptive Selection. Look it up on Wikipedia: It's when natural selection weeds out the individuals of a species that are average or "middle", leaving only the two extremes of the spectrum. For the last two RPs, there have been neutral scientists working in Pelvanida. Once James' team finds and attacks Lab 101, there will be no middle ground; every participant is either Dragonstorm or anti-Dragonstorm.
Plus, James' team is being disruptive, and selecting which side wins.

Darwin's Soldiers III: Disruptive Selection does work and it is considered a "finalist" for the name.

Also, LB&T, I liked how you had James hide out in a dingy motel in Pavlov's Soldiers.

I can picture this RP being the longest as there is less focus on combat and more focus on exploring.

That is fine. I will try and work in a justification for what happened to your team or you can do that.

Snow and Neku have never gotten together...I know it's hard because they're controlled by separate authors, but it'd be really cool if we could actually resolve that plotline in DS3.

Hmm...Plot development for Hawkeye ahead...
He'll have integrated what was left of Ridley into his armor, creating a much more powerful set of gear. He also will occasionally start self-pluralizing.

I have been thinking that it would be neat if the Darwin's Soldiers stories were set in a Red Alert-eske Universe. You know, having the American government be dogs while the Soviets are bears, and having a bit of a cold war going on. Dragonstorm could be a secretly funded Soviet project to steal American technology...

That sounds like an interesting idea but that does not quite make sense because there all species of anthros in this universe. Not to mention, I think it was mentioned that Dragonstorm was a secret experiment sanctioned by some military branch of the government.

Yay! f-22's back! We kept your characters involved, and you can even help wrap up this RP if you feel like!

I don't like the idea of using species to represent different nationalities, because every main character except Shelton and Clyco have been revealed to be American, plus every other time I've seen a story do this there seems to be unavoidable hints of racism, even if the author didn't intend it (as I know you didn't, Cautizer.) I'm just reminded of a certain furry comic called Better Days, which was anything but.

I'M IN!!! Since I will be there at the start of it, I should be able to stay with the plot more... that, and I should have more time by the time it begins in my real-life schedule.
