PostSubject: Plot Development   Fri Oct 29, 2010 12:35 pm

If every group wrote what they wanted the story to be, it would be a disjointed mess, therefore, I thought that I should put a plot line somewhere on here. So far, the beginning is thought out (kinda), but we should all have a say in the direction this story takes. Please feel free to post here on anything that you feel necessary. Also, it would help if you left updates on how far you are and where you were planning on taking your characters.

The beginning:

So far, we have Dutch and Baron Sticky Wicket talking about galactic domination. They are soon visited by Alphonso and Archie, and the plan to kidnap the high priestess and gain possession of the sacred Oregano is put into motion.

Also, Ace is introduced, along with his robot and human companion. He is pompous and foolhardy, yet heroic. Lord Squigglar is announced, and sends Ace on a mission to retrieve his laundry. Also, as a side mission, could he look into saving Telmissa while he was there.

While travelling, the ships engine spontaneous combusts. Mac fixes it with a wrench toss, and Ace promptly breaks it again. After TX-88 REFIXES the engine, they finally manage to get underway to the Space Laundromat.

Baron Sticky Wicket and Dutch vader have their plan put into motion, when they detect Ace Mornningstar on the radar coming to mess things up. Dutch Vader paces nervously in his wooden clogs, and eats some mayonnaise. Baron Sticky Wicket plots his MASTER PLAN

The MASTER PLAN is to convert Telmissa to pastafarianism, and give her to Ace, so she will convert EVERYBODY! They actually go through several MASTER PLANS before arriving at this one.


Don't remember who is writting next scene, however WOULD YOU PLEASE HURRY THE F**K UP AND WRITE!!!


PLEASE HELP UPDATE THIS PLOT!!! ADD INFO BELOW!!!

K we rearranged it to say that Squigglar actually wanted Ace to get his laundry, and that Telmissa was an 'if you're in the neighbourhood' thing.

Is Ace going to pick the laundry up FROM Squigglar's place, or from a discreet laundromat? I vote from a laundromat or w/e, because that opens up a little irony for Ace after the climax

Damn I'm stupid. Forgot about Jess' post lol. It's picking up, derp.

Close, Chris. Ace is on the way to pick up Squigglar's laundry, Telmissa is a secondary side mission. When the scene cuts to Stickywicket and Dutch Vader, they're trying to create a master plan. They haven't made one yet. Then they see Ace approaching on some spacey radar thingy, and decide to eff things up.
End scene.



Note by Ocean Seven: Um, I'm not Chris lol. Phem is Chris. xD
