massive fractures spread from the core to the crust of omicron-06, in a galaxy many thousands of light years from earth. as a red dwarf star set for the last time on the ruptured planet, the last of its former inhabitants fled on starships and refugee cruisers, forced to watch their home disappear into the darkness of space. no one among them is quite sure how or why the planet splintered, but the surface wasn't the only thing that splintered. refugees from the lost omicron-6 broke into separate factions as a result, and now live spread far apart, on many different planets, space bases, and even starships throughout the known universe.
now they seek a new home, or revenge for what happened to their planet, or just a new purpose to call their own.

how do i develop my goobies?
pretty much any way you want !! there are a few predefined "systems" for your goobies to follow, that allow you to expand your crew's lore as well as create your own belief system as to what happened on omicron-06. alternatively, there are systems that completely ignore the planet's past and choose to move entirely beyond it !! these systems are designed to provide you with endless opportunities in creating your spacefaring gelatin monsters.
you are only allowed one system per person, and as of right now there is no way to change your system. luckily, you don't have to commit to a system for a few levels after you begin developing your goobies. you must pick a system at level 3, when you have unlocked 6 goobies.

another important aspect of the goobies is their ship !! the ship acts as their 'territory,' since it's impossible for them to survive long-term on other planets due to their specific atmospheric requirements. luckily, their ships can change massively as they develop and grow in space !! goobies are known for their phenomenal engineering, after all !!

level 0: fresh faces [3 goobies] [ship exterior]
- acquire a captain for your crew
- create / name your ship
- describe / draw the exterior of your ship [this can change later if you want!][100+ words]

level 1: lights on! [4 goobies] [two room ship - main deck and sleeping quarters]
- describe your captain's personality [100+ words]
- describe/draw your ship's main deck/sleeping quarters [100+ words] [think rinky dinky, your ship can change as your crew expands!]
- how do your goobies feel about the loss of their planet? [50+ words]

level 2: establishing order [5 goobies] [two room ship]
- give one of your goobies [excluding the captain] a personality / backstory [100+ words]
- describe/draw two members of your crew interacting [100+ words]
- give your crew an insignia [must be drawn, you can have someone do it for you !!]

level 3: finding purpose [6 goobies] [two room ship]
- give another one of your goobies a personality / backstory [100+ words]
- it's starting to get cramped aboard your tiny refugee ship! how do your goobies react? draw/describe it [100+ words]
- your goobies have been considering what's next for them. which path are they planning to follow and why? [100+ words]

about systems

Postby byyrde » Mon Aug 05, 2019 3:33 am

so, systems?
yes, systems !! systems is a way to describe progressing through the goobies arpg. there are several available systems: the battle system, science system, explorer system, scholar system, and the misc system. there is also room for more systems to be developed, and large rewards may be offered to players in the future for helping to come up with them !!
these systems are basically rpg archetypes; your goobies will seek to fulfill certain roles within the system they choose. each system comes with its own rewards, including a legendary goo color applicator that will become available upon reaching the highest standard level [level 8].

battle system
goobies who join the battle system often feel like they have nothing to lose and a lot of anger to release. with the death of their planet, these goobies are the ones who are looking for someone to blame. they take out this blame on other goobies or on other aliens they think are guilty for the destruction of omicron-06.

scholar system
goobies in the scholar system seek to discover the truth about what happened to their planet, omicron-06. they collect artifacts and documents from before omicron's loss, found in floating wreckage and on other planets throughout the galaxy. in this system, your goobies will be hard at work trying to form a theory as to what happened to their home.

science system
goobies in this system have decided to eschew their past and move on to the future! there's tons of old tech from omicron-06 that could use development, or perhaps your goobies are trying to produce something altogether new! whatever the case, science system goobies are hard at work in the laboratory, using their new home among the stars to further their research.

explorer system
goobies in this system typically weren't that attached to omicron-06 to begin with, yearning to feel the solar wind at their backs. now, with their refugee ship as their home, they're ready to take the galaxy by storm! seeking a wide variety of treasures and artifacts far and wide, these crews bravely go where no gooby has gone before.

misc. system
this system is a perfect fit for those goobies whose purpose doesn't really fit anywhere else! whether it be an intergalactic food truck or a devout space knitting circle, these crews do what they do best, whatever the heck that might be!
