The Generic World [3XX] exists within an interdimensional rift. It is an experimental world placed by a particular group of Planeswalkers. However, an Alien brain has managed to rupture the fabric of this plane's reality and has opened up a warp rift into the Eye of the Terror. The Lost members of Guilliman's Great Crusade find themselves stranded within the vicinity of the system, as well as their Chaos pursuers. Other portals are also opening revealing the UAC within the system. And with them come various outworlders such as a highly sophisticated elite group of Piratez in a large Red spaceship.

You are but one of the denizens of This experimental world tasked by the ruling Planeswalker to manage these threats. Eliminate, and cast each one into the void. Just as you have done countless times before. Unify the Planet under your leadership, or leave it a nuclear wasteland.

Arc 0:
Player Starts as an exiled scientist with 1 Robotic Jarhead. With reoccurring missions to kidnap citizens wandering the world.

Arc 1:
Citizens (Item) can be converted into Conscripts (Item that can turn into soldiers), and Logistical Staff (Engineers)
Capture Scientists, Unlock the ability to research
Capture Engineers, Unlock manufacturing
Then the player will continue to do missions, and unlock locations, eventually coming to face against the Corporations that be.

Arc 2:
The Corporations downfall leads to a triggering the rupture leading to the Alien Brain, Imperial Remnants, Choas, UAC, X-piratez, and maybe other factions to appear in the system.

Arc 3:
The ability to research and deploy nuclear weapons, which will then spawn Mutants. Ideally at this point most missions will then stop happening and be replaced by nuclear/apocalypse related map types.

The End Game can be done as normal, with an ending slide just detailing that the Rupture is fixed with the Alien Brain's death.

Research will need the capture of NPC's to teach the player character various things such as hunting, job employment, and unlocking missions, or items to purchase.

To manufacture new items schematics need to be stolen from mission areas. Or intel needs to be derived from special captives through gambling manufacture.

For instance to manufacture the M16 research needs to be made into engineering, and also finding an M16 Schematic from a factory mission.

Biometric Locks in all items
Captured vehicles give a token that randomizes either wreck, salvage, or Hull.
hull can be turned into a refurbished vehicle.

Make Males and Females different races like X-piratez?
Allow fully covering armors for both.

Preliminary base assaults?
Missions that if failed or ignored leads to a base assault?

Vehicles will be scavangable. But have a chance of not making it through. Justified as intentional sabotage from agents, bad craftsmanship, and scuttling by the previous crew.

I'm looking to make every ship that's encountered, and flown by normal physical beings to be salvagable, and pilotable when refurbished. Exceptions will be engine/bug based. Or justified as needing supplies that can not be provided such as an Astropath.
