I'm tempted to say Tessa Violet but that name's taken by a YouTuber...

What about Walker? Adams? Carter?

valarie is nice. But wouldn't be a bit clever to have her name and her "alter-ego's" name interchangable? Such as the main characters name being reveresed to be the same? Or you can rearrange her name to spell out her "alter-ego's" name. Also I would like to help with the story a bit. If thats ok with the Story/Script leaders and Dan.

"Also, the positions detailed are just their main positions. They are free to dabble in other areas, to give their opinion, etc."

Fine with me Smile

Let's not give the alter-egos a sdrawkcab name. That's beyond cliché.

How about Valerie Rae for the protagonist and Valerie Fang for the evil version?

Do we ever need to reveal her alter-egos name? I mean we can occasionally refer to her through a code name within the game, but as she only appears in it towards the end...

Okay, so whilst this may warrant a new thread, and maybe the story aspect needs it's own sub-forums. I thought I would post it here and allow you to quote it into a new thread if required!

Okay so this is my story summary so far, it will most definitely be biased towards my opinion, but deal with it and make a constructive comment about it. Very Happy (everything in red is undecided stuff, well none of it's concrete but whatever.)

The story is set/starts in a fairly rundown, dirty, horrible slum like city. With our protagonist being a British? female who used to be in the special forces called Valerie Rae?. And so the first level/tutorial/cinematic plays out in this city, maybe she's part of a team or group or something (adds to emotion at the end). Any for some reason yet to be decided she ends up being transported to this parallel dimension in which everything is the "Antithesis," the city is very clean and sterile (thing mirrors edge, or what the world would be like if apple ruled the world), and everything is the opposite, with the police being evil etc...

From this point on the game can be split into 3 distinct parts (again this may change), the first section starts with Rae having just arrived in the city, and her aim is getting back to the real world (this will be what we will sell the player as the key story line "Help Valerie Rae get back to normality.") Anyway throughout this section we are introduced to a multitude of characters... including the baddies, and the "big bad." This section ends with Rae finding out that the big bad is trying to destroy the world (cliche but who cares), anyway the catch is that if this world is destroyed her world will be destroyed, I also think it is at this point that she should be able to go home, so it is actually her choice to stay and help save the world.

The second section is spent trying to stop the big bad from destroying the world, I imagine that most of the characters will have been established and may be fighting along side her. I'm quite keen on having one of her new best friends jump in front of a bullet for her (saying she's the only person who can save the world) or at least someone dying, or maybe both! Anyway in this level I would like to battle the big bad and loose, It is at the end of this section (not sure how but it will probably be to do with one of her friends in the real world's alter-ego dying) that we realize if you die in one world you die in the other.

And so starts the 3rd section; Rae and her cronies set about to kill the alter ego of the big bad (who happens to be a janitor that they have to track down). This section can involve some world hoping but primarily taking place in her home world, with cops from the alternate world also coming through to try and stop Rae. This section ends with them killing the janitor (may play on some form of morality here).

The end section (I know I said 3 but this is more of a final level/epilogue similar to the very first bit) has the reveal of the actual big bad (we may have known about there being a bigger bad all along, but with a code name and never showing their face) who turns out to be Rae's alter-ego. and the realization that they either both die or neither of them do. Anyway DoppelRae offers Rae to join her, or she can lock her up, as she can't kill her. (I'm thinking another nice twist would be to have Rae's new found friends to be working for DoppelRae, in order to keep her safe and not let her die -hence the jumping in front of a bullet- although this may be a twist too far, and kind of undermines any character development and relationships). Rae decides to fight DoppelRae, but DoppelRae will only fight to protect herself. Anyway after a while DoppelRae gets into it (I like the idea of a sword fight, maybe as an FMV) and as they're fighting all of the sudden Rae gives up just as DR is about to lunge at her/shoot her. We see a smile on Rae's face as she dies. Roll credits.

Guys, there's a problem..
If everything is reversed, shouldn't the weapons supposed to be reversed too?
I mean, toy weapons should be deadly, and real weapons should tickle, right?
Or I got a wrong idea?
