This is the new work topic. What are we going to do? Find out, on the macro scale, what is happening at any given stage of the war. Don't worry about specific COs, we're just working out who attacks who, when, why, and how the conflict ends.

So, to get things started,

1)
Who: Amber Corona rebels from Yellow Comet
When: Probably the earliest event in the campaigns
Why: AC wants to be an independent country
Result: AC pushed back YC

---------------------------------------------------

2)
Who: Black Hole attacks Blue Moon
When: Beginning of the campaigns
Why: Black Hole is trying to take over.
Result: Black Hole is faced with stiff opposition, and is pushed back significantly until gaining assistance from Parallel Galaxy.

2)
Who: Mercs take over Amber Corona
When: A short time into the campaign, right after AC stabilizes
Why: Yukio is power hungry
Result: Idealist COs flee to OS

2) Who: BH/PG invade YC
When: Very start of the campaign (simultaneously with Thrawn's "Mercs take over Amber Corona")
Why: To stop YC getting spyplane blueprints and claim them for themselves
Result: YC push BH/PG back and get the spyplane plans, freeing YC from DA attacks.

2) Who: BH/PG invades JC
When: Start of Campaign
Why: To disable JC's relatively fresh and well-polished, well-readied war machine by destroying much of the plantlife which is relied on there.
Result: Success, with JC's war machine being all but toppled with use of minimal resources.

2) Who: PG invades GE
When: Start of Campaign
Why: To take over GE
Result: GE resists these actions to a surprising degree, and is able to not only defeat PG, but also begin providing aid to other countries.

2) Who: PG/BH invade Orange Star
When: Start of Campaign
Why: To take out the most powerful country.
Result: Stalemate. PG and BH are able to gain control of the coastlines, however, Orange Star maintains ideal positioning and control of key points.

-------------------------------------------------------

3)
Who: BH/PG conquers Blue Moon mainland (Macro Region)
When: After BM Mission 7/Before AN Conference #1.
Why: Black Hole's forces, with Parallel Galaxy aid, have a massive amount of momentum and are able to sweep right across the continent after a few initial setbacks. Also, in mission 7 Melanthe is observing Alexis' reaction to the crystal infusion and reporting any side-effects back to Levenworth.
Result: Blue Moon is defeated and retreats to Cosmo Land after attending the first AN conference.

3) Who: AC Mercs invade YC
When: After the Mercs finish establishing rule in AC
Why: Politically easier to move AC troops against YC for revenge, also to help secure an alliance with the DA.
Result: YC holds off AC attacks for the most part.

3) Who: GE attacks PG/BH
When: After JC's war machine is disabled, and BH/PG is defeated on GE territory.
Why: To aid allies who are being defeated.
Result: GE brings the fight to Black Hole's base, but is unable to gain significant ground.

3.5) Who: AC Mercs attack JC
When: After Mercs establish rule in AC
Why: To secure alliance with the DA.
Result: JC, under this massive attack by BH, PG, and AC, is almost completely defeated.

3) Who: OS and AC Idealists attack BH
When: After AC Idealists seek asylum in OS
Why: To make an opening, allowing the first AN Conference to take place in Orange Star.
Result: OS succeeds, allowing other nations to arrive for the first conference.

--------------------------------------

4) AN Conference #1

--------------------------------------

5)
Who: Black Hole and Parallel Galaxy sweep into Cosmo Land, with Amber Corona support.
When: After AN Conference #1/before YC meets up with BM at Cosmo Land. (Missions 8-12)
Why: Blue Moon is routed at Macro Land, and the DA wants to strike before they dig in at Cosmo Land. Basically, BM's position in Cosmo Land is extremely vulnerable, and the DA have to act now.
Result: Although BM gathers 2 more COs (Tempest and Aira) and destroy a major BH installation, BH and PG forces push all the way to the capital and put it under siege.

5) Who: GE attacks BH at JC
When: After the conference.
Why: Having the most success of all the nations, GE decides to send it's aid to JC.
Result: GE's massive naval and air fleets are able to put serious stress on the PG naval blockade which isolated JC from much outside aid.

5) Who: JC attacks BH, (Melanthe begins to investigate Ember's work)
When: After the conference.
Why: Although they possess little ability to fight back at this point, JC has concocted a plan. As they see growing tensions between the BH COs, they decide to take advantage of the arrival of Melanthe in JC's now barren territory. By springing a trap and trapping Melanthe's small army inside the JC desert, they hope to unleash her botanical weapons, which will provide nutrients for the soil and allow JC to regrow the forests which once helped their prosperity.
Result: Melanthe is trapped in the JC desert, allowing JC to execute the plan successfully.

5) Who: OS(+AC) attacks DA
When: After the conference
Why: Along with the AC Idealists, OS begins to clean up all DA forces in the area.
Result: With OS concentrating on freeing up it's own land, the DA is forced to retreat and focus their efforts elsewhere.

5) Who: AC attacks YC
When: During/after conference
Why: Continuation of previous conflict.
Result: Same as before


------------------------------

6)
Who: PG begins infighting against BH.
When: When BM Cosmo Land capital is about to fall/right before YC forces join up with BM. (Mission 13)
Why: BH is having far more success than PG planned, and is beginning to ravage their occupied land (which PG wants to govern eventually).
Result: Pressure at the capital is taken off BM, who proceed to counterattack against BH, which is now left without an ally.

6) Who: BH raids GE
When: During the beginning of the infighting
Why: Alienated and new BH COs, who are given increased freedom as the war shifts against PG, begin to make calculated raids against the most successful country so far.
Result: These BH COs manage to take over a small portion of the land in Northern Green Earth.

6) Who: JC paves road of destruction for Melanthe
When: After trappping her
Why: As JC needs Melanthe's plants to re-fertilize the soil, they need her to attack them in many places.
Result: With Melanthe's attacks in many areas, JC's war machine grows stronger and allows them to focus resources on fighting PG.

6) Who: GE attacks PG at JC
When: After JC's success with Melanthe
Why: Because of JC's successful plan with Melanthe, GE believes they can bring a swift end to the conflict by applying as much force as possible
Result: The PG naval blockade is shattered, allowing GE troops to land on some of the JC islands.

6) Who: YC starts heading to BM
When: Same as other events
Why: To get to the next AN conference, they must travel through BM
Result: After finding that BM is nearly defeated, the COs heading to the conference are caught in the middle of BM's war.

6) Who: OS(+AC) attacks DA
When: After the conference
Why: Along with the AC Idealists, OS begins to clean up all DA forces in the area.
Result: With OS concentrating on freeing up it's own land, the DA is forced to retreat and focus their efforts elsewhere.

---------------------

7.
Who: BM and YC forces join up and begin fighting AC and BH.
When: After BH and PG fall into infighting. (Missions 13-14)
Why: YC COs are headed to the AN conference to discuss the situation further? (Although I have the conference not happening for another 10 missions... hm.)
Result: BH is forced back, having trouble keeping control of Cosmo Land. PG is seizing territory from BH as well.

7) Who: BH begins fighting PG
When: After JC uses Melanthe's plants to revitalize the land
Why: Melanthe can't stand what PG has done to the land, and fights them as well as Ember from the Bolt Guard.
Result:

7) Who: JC attacks PG
When: After JC uses Melanthe's plants to revitalize the land
Why: Since Melanthe is already focusing her efforts on PG, JC decides to help her in her mission.
Result: The JC COs, still waiting for the land to recover, help Melanthe in her fight against PG and Ember. Melanthe, with their help, is able to significantly damage the PG position, as well as start BH on a path of war against PG.

7) Who: GE
When:
Why:
Result:

-------------------------

8.
Who: BH attacks a PG lab built around a former BM power plant, and BM/YC move in fight off BH.
When: Right before Kindle's dethroning. (Missions 15-16x)
Why: Kindle is suspicious of Melanthe's motives (suspecting Melanthe plans to oust her), and finds out she's hiding in the PG lab. Taking this as a sign of open treachery, she decides to get rid of her permanently.
Result: BH breaks into the lab and rigs the reactors to explode, but a combined BM/"old guard" force defeats Kindle (Falcone appears to help Melanthe). If the "old gaurd" captured more power stations than BH, Falcone blows the plant up on everyone. In any case, Graves "assassinates" Kindle while she tries to counterattack around a week later (BM Mission 16x you're defending against Kindle).


I'll keep things in chronological order in this post, just post your plans in the above format, and if anyone disagrees with something, we'll discuss it.[url][/url]

My plans in a nutshell (besides the above):

Who: Black Hole conquers Blue Moon mainland (Macro Region)
When: After BM Mission 7/Before AN Conference #1.
Why: Black Hole's forces, with Parallel Galaxy aid, have a massive amount of momentum and are able to sweep right across the continent after a few initial setbacks. Also, in mission 7 Melanthe is observing Alexis' reaction to the crystal infusion and reporting any side-effects back to Levenworth.
Result: Blue Moon is defeated and retreats to Cosmo Land after attending the first AN conference.

Who: Black Hole and Parallel Galaxy sweep into Cosmo Land, with Amber Corona support.
When: After AN Conference #1/before YC meets up with BM at Cosmo Land. (Missions 8-12)
Why: Blue Moon is routed at Macro Land, and the DA wants to strike before they dig in at Cosmo Land. Basically, BM's position in Cosmo Land is extremely vulnerable, and the DA have to act now.
Result: Although BM gathers 2 more COs (Tempest and Aira) and destroy a major BH installation, BH and PG forces push all the way to the capital and put it under siege.

Who: PG begins infighting against BH.
When: When BM Cosmo Land capital is about to fall/right before YC forces join up with BM. (Mission 13)
Why: BH is having far more success than PG planned, and is beginning to ravage their occupied land (which PG wants to govern eventually).
Result: Pressure at the capital is taken off BM, who proceed to counterattack against BH, which is now left without an ally. (Perhaps the "old guard" [Flak, Adder, Melanthe] try to stay out of it, since the Bolt Guard are the main issue here? But that's for the BH campaign to decide.)

Who: BM and YC forces join up and begin fighting AC and BH.
When: After BH and PG fall into infighting. (Missions 13-14)
Why: YC COs are headed to the AN conference to discuss the situation further? (Although I have the conference not happening for another 10 missions... hm.)
Result: BH is forced back, having trouble keeping control of Cosmo Land. PG is seizing territory from BH as well.

Who: BH attacks a PG lab built around a former BM power plant, and BM/YC move in fight off BH.
When: Right before Kindle's dethroning. (Missions 15-16x)
Why: Kindle is suspicious of Melanthe's motives (suspecting Melanthe plans to oust her), and finds out she's hiding in the PG lab. Taking this as a sign of open treachery, she decides to get rid of her permanently.
Result: BH breaks into the lab and rigs the reactors to explode, but a combined BM/"old guard" force defeats Kindle (Falcone appears to help Melanthe). If the "old gaurd" captured more power stations than BH, Falcone blows the plant up on everyone. In any case, Graves "assassinates" Kindle while she tries to counterattack around a week later (BM Mission 16x you're defending against Kindle).

An iffy one:
Who: Hawke appears and stages a battle against Napoleon. BM Forces arrive while retaking the rest of Cosmo Land.
When: Between Kindle's dethroning and BM's mainland counterattack (Mission 17).
Why: Hawke stages the battle to make it appear that he's been shafted by Melanthe and Falcone, and that Napoleon stole leadership from him.
Result: Hawke disappears as usual, leaving BM to think he's not with BH anymore.

Who: BM counterattacks against DA forces on the BM (Macro) mainland.
When: Between Kindle's dethroning and the AN Crystal Conference (Missions 18-23).
Why: With the DA seemingly weakened after the BH/PG split, and pushed out of Cosmo Land, BM feels that their momentum should carry them to the mainland.
Result: A naval ambush (Mission 18), a costly landing (Mission 19), an aerial ambush (Mission 20), and a DA counteroffensive (Missions 22-23) leave BM forces in ruins, able to defend what land they've taken but unable to continue their drive.

Who: JC CO Jared is stuck in BM, surrounded by BH forces
When: Shortly before the AN Crystal Conference (Missions 21-22)
Why: Scouting mission? Or something. I'll have to discuss it with Kosheh...
Result: Edge rescues Jared's forces (against Olaf's orders) from the BH ambush, then Tempest and Aira help his forces get off the continent.


I'll post the rest tomorrow.

Result: YC push BH/PG back and get the spyplane plans.

Who: PG/BH and AC launch assaults on YC

Why: PG are looking for someone in YC, while AC attack a rich area.
Result: YC is enlightened of the motives of PG's assault.

There's the first 2 parts.

Before I post the rest, I'd like to know just if and when Levenworth replaces Talyx in PG, and if and when Talyx leaves PG altogether (as some of this stuff depends on it).

Talyx never leaves PG.

Who: YC
When: Before they start to set off for the AN conference
Why: After PG demand they hand over Mr. X, YC investigate who he is and find no records.
Result: PG have retreated for a while now since they asked for Mr. X and only with AC attacking the COs think it's a safe time to leave for the conference.

Who: Kanbei, Sonja and Sensei
When: Before meeting up with BM.
Why: They need to travel through BM to reach the AN conference.
Result: BM and YC team up and fight as allies for a few missions while they go onward to the conference.

*Chess, if BM go to the conference a while after they meet up with YC, we could have them meet up for a preliminary session where you've said they meet up. It may be a good opportunity for YC to get hovercraft plans (I'd like them to have them, especially for the final battle I've outlined), they could detour to GE/JC for a bit after learning from BM hovercrafts are useful, and go to get permission from them? Then return to BM and from there, they both head off to the conference together, this would create the required amount of time to fill the gap we have. A YC could even stay in BM and appear in your campaign for a while helping out (you'd have full control over what you'd want to do with him/her), and that CO wouldn't be used by me for that period.

Who: Kiyobi and PG
When: Same time as above (throughout that period)
Why: Kiyobi, Grimm and Rattigan are defending YC from AC. PG however launch a strike as they kow the other COs are away.
Result: PG capture Kiyobi and plan to use him in 'their' plan. I say 'their', because it's actually AC's plan, they're just helping with it. Or at least that's what the player will hopefully work out in their head, whereas in fact PG will be working on their own and the player will be wrong as AC have no idea of the capture, so it will be more of a surprise when they find out the truth behind it all. Reverse psychology ftw!

There we go, 3 more parts.

Guys, don't worry about what COs are doing what.

YC divides so it's easier to describe them seperately with CO names, however omit them as you feel necessary.

Well, it's easier if you did it like this:

Who: YC fights BH through BM
When: Before meeting up with BM.
Why: They need to travel through BM to reach the AN conference.
Result: BM and YC team up and fight as allies for a few missions while they go onward to the conference.

Also, your first event is mostly irrelevant. We're just doing the structure of attacks, not dialouge.

Ah, right, I get you.

Who: YC fights BH/PG through BM
When: Before meeting up with BM.
Why: They need to travel through BM to reach the AN conference.
Result: BM and YC team up and fight as allies for a few missions while they go onward to the conference.

Who: YC and GE/JC
When: After fighting alongside BM.
Why: To get the hovercraft blueprints.
Result: They get them and spend some time in GE/JC.


Samethings apply above for this section, it's not definate yet.

Who: YC, AC and PG
When: From when YC leaves for the conference, to just before the conference starts.
Why: YC are defending from AC. PG however launch a strike on YC at the same time.
Result: Kiyobi is captured by PG.

Hm. I suppose I could change the BM storyline so that they do get hovercraft plans in mission 2 (but don't figure them out/start mass production until later), because I was originally planning to have GE bring more or something... but yeah, having them leave for GE/JC sounds good, because around that point BM goes back to their main continent to retake it.

Then we could have YC give BM the Destroyer (or whatever technology they invented) at that point, and have BM give YC the Spyplane (unless they already did early on).

As for the YC CO thing, it'd be nice. I don't know which CO would be best, though.

Okay, I updated hopefully everything up to the first AN Conference.

Oh, everything I've said is regarding the second, main AN conference. YC don't attend the first one. My understanding was that conference 1 was around about mission 10 and conference 2 about mission 20...

So basically YC just sits around and does nothing for the first fourth of the game?

No, they have to fend off AC, that's why they can't make it. Have you read the plot?

Uhm... I really don't know how to do this properly.

A main one will be:

Who: GE air/seaforce moves to aid JC.
When: After Conference when JC is getting raped?
Why: To help out JC from getting raped.
Result: JC gets the help they desperately need.

I think I'm making better progress just MSNing everyone and asking what they think than people posting in this topic.

Location: Bored out of my mind.
Here's the rest, including my highly-subject-to-change ending details.

Who: Olaf visits the JC islands while the rest of BM returns to the mainland. An OS CO arrives to investigate JC's claims of obtaining crystals and attacks the lab housing them.
When: After the second AN conference.
Why: JC obtained crystal technology, but crystal use was rejected at the AN conference.
Result: JC refuses at first, but OS CO attacks the lab, and Olaf helps JC defend. After some convincing by Jared, JC gives BM the crystals. The OS CO is captured.

Who: OS attacks BM's crystal lab
When: After OS rescues their captured CO
Why: OS feels that crystal usage will sacrifice their "moral high ground", and that BM may not stop crystal usage after driving the DA out. OS doesn't trust BM not to use the crystals for ulterior purposes, especially after the conference opened old wounds.
Result: The other BM COs are against using the crystals until they realize that the nearby BH facility is using crystals to power their war effort. The DA's crystal usage will destroy the continent if BM doesn't use their crystals to build up enough forces to wipe them out quickly. BM repels OS' attack and destroys the BH facility.

Who: The AN factions sign a cease-fire and go back to fighting the DA.
When: After a period of fighting between the pro- and anti-crystal factions.
Why: The DA are beginning to regain ground due to the infighting, and the factions realize that the DA are a much bigger threat.
Result: The DA begin losing again.

Who: BM attacks the DA factory, then retake the capital city.
When: A little while after the cease-fire is signed.
Why: To drive the DA out of BM territory.
Result: BM's crystal gambit succeeds, and the DA forces in BM are destroyed.


At this point, we go into ending details, which I guess are to be decided after the storyboard comes together. I'll guess post what I had anyways...

Who: The Allied forces make their way into BM's former Omega Land territory, suspected to be the DA's base of operations (based on information from Hawke).
When: After the DA has been driven out of every mainland/Cosmo Land.
Why: To end the war.
Result: A battle through a maze of warp points. Shortly after the AN arrival at BM's Omega Land territory, Hawke disappears. The AN soon stumble upon the Black Hole HQ; Hawke intended for them to find PG's HQ first, but Levenworth and Graves lead them to the Black Hole HQ. After a series of battles, the Black Hole fortress is destroyed, and Napoleon and the remaining BH COs disappear.

Who: The AN and PG main forces clash near the PG HQ.
When: Less than 10 days after the destruction of BH HQ.
Why: Duh.

First Battle: Unlike Sturm and Von Bolt, Dreadnaught and Mina lead an assault force against the AN camp before they even arrive at his fortress. The surprise attack rips into the AN base, but AN forces barely hold them off.

Second Battle: VS Dreadnaught/Levenworth or VS Dreadnaught/Talyx (if we don't go with the "Two Levenworth Stat Sets" idea Kosheh had). This is a 3-on-1 (or rather 6-on-2) battle with Standard Victory Conditions. At the end, it is revealed that the enitre base is a fake, and that AN forces had been tricked, left with no clues to PG's real location... until somebody shows them (Cassidy? Alexis? I dunno.)

Third Battle: VS Dreadnaught + LevenworthX. The AN track Dreadnaught to the PG island fortress, and find out why he started the war. Levenworth has used the (ask Kosh) to power himself up, and both Dready and Levenworth are determined not to let the island fell. The Parallel Galaxy mothership is docked here, refueling using energy from one or more Black Obelisks, and Dreadnaught plans to lead a renewed PG attack against the AN forces with it at the forefront. The AN destroy the Obelisks, defeat the rest of PG's forces, then use the Black Armegeddon sites from AW2 and AW:DS to shoot down the mothership with Dreadnaught on board.

Fourth Battle: As the Allied Nations reach the core of PG's island, they find that Levenworth, now mad with power, has taken command of PG and left Dreadnaught in the wrecked mothership to die. (I really have no clue about the rest, except BH under Hawke should be present as a third, independant faction).

Oh, and if some of the final battles (or any battles, really) are 3-on-1, then BM's allies are planned to be YC and JC.

I'd create another topic for discussion on that, but that would be jumping the gun...

Oh... I forgot:

Who: OS, BM, and possibly GE have a conference at the old AN HQ in Omega Land.
When: AN Conference #1/After BM Mainland falls
Why: To discuss the current situation.
Result: The DA attack the conference. BM arrives late and bails OS and/or GE forces out of the mess.
