REMAKING THE IDEA FROM SCRATCH.
Premise and Background.
An "What if" world where the game protagonists never left home, the world is currently divided by many factions, criminal or not, struggling for power and territories. The player characters are a small band of mercenaries from the Braviary Security Company acting on "Contracts" given by those factions, and can even grow up to be major players in the conquest game.
Team Rocket- Major criminal syndicate, owns almost all of the Kanto/Johto region. Currently aiming to expand business to other countries.
Aqua Cult - Pirates who own the flooded eastern part of Hoenn. Want to flood the western part.
Magma Cult - Bandits controlling the dried up western part of Hoenn. Want to dry the eastern part.
Galactic Survivors - Owners of what still remains from the Sinnoh Wasteland after the Mt. Coronet disaster.
Plasma Empire - Controls the entirety of the Unovan continent.
League Remnants - A secret group formed by the remaining Pokémon League members on most territories, their goal is to reinstate their former influence.
During the game, the players will earn (or lose) reputation as they make their name on the mercenary world. Higher reputation with factions will earn better backup, rewards and gear on missions, while lower reputations might result on you being sabotaged, sent to suicide missions or supplied with fake stuff! While faction reputation deals with your relationship with the individual factions, general reputation deals with your popularity and fame with all possible contractors.
Ways to win reputation:
Save or help members of the faction
Defeat members from rival factions
Ways to lose reputation:
Fail or betrayal during missions
Defeating members from own or friendly factions
Current General Reputation: +10 (Bonus Item for everyone: Walkie-Talkie.).
Individual Faction Reputations:
Galactic Empire: +10 (Friendly)
Team Rocket: +15 (Friendly)
Beige Smugglers: -20 (Hostile)
Thieves contractor?: -10 (Unfriendily)
