Dust To Stars Game Outline

The Angelic Ascension

  1. The game takes place in a world called Elysia, where real-world locations merge with fantastical landscapes.
  2. Seven major regions represent the seven levels of The Children, each named after an angel.
  3. Real-world locations serve as starting points for quests and tasks, linking the real and virtual worlds.

Gameplay: Players join The Children and progress through the seven levels by completing tasks, both in-game and in the real world. Players must maintain anonymity and work together to accomplish goals. As players advance through levels, they gain access to new abilities, items, and areas in the game.

The Seven Levels:

Level One – Gabriel’s Insight: Players discover the actual site for The Children. They gain access to a new in-game region and must complete quests to learn more about the organization. Connection: being able to be part of the internet without leaving a trace or being recognized, scanning the QR code without the site hacking your information.

Level Two – Raphael’s Watchers: Players join the spotting community to track internet “ghosts.” Players participate in coordinated in-game activities and gain new social abilities. Judgment: Finding a picture of Harper or another internet ghost to prove that you have been chosen to have the sight.

level Three –  Baradiel’s Recruiters: Players learn the true purpose of the organization. Players begin recruiting new members through social media and unlock new in-game recruitment tools. Tree of knowledge: Finding the organization’s true purpose without being told.

Level Four –  Michael’s Guild: Players join the MMO guild and become part of a close-knit circle. They engage in daily check-ins and team-building exercises, enhancing teamwork and communication.

Level Five – Zadkiel’s Gathering: Players participate in in-person meetings, further integrating the community. They unlock special in-game events and locations exclusive to this level. The Holy Temple: Becoming a part of the MMO guild run by Cassiel. Tools for communication in-game MMO chats aren’t logged the same way as online ones, leaving less tracks. In joining the guild, the guild master can also check when was the last time each person logged on to make sure they haven’t left or gone silent. He has certain times you have to check in to be accounted for and a certain amount of content you must do each week to build bonds and teamwork within the group.  Meeting other members in person you can choose whether to be a pioneer and enter the virtual world or become part of the team that supports them

Level Six – Zebul’s Pioneers: Players become part of the experiment, either as guinea pigs or researchers. They gain access to a secret in-game bunker and unlock advanced abilities and items. Celestial Records: Becoming part of the experiment completely by full immersion or helping with the experiment’s research by becoming an administrator or scientist.

Level Seven – Cassiel’s Triumvirate: Players ascend to the highest level, joining the leaders of the group. They gain control over the game’s major aspects, such as heading the guild or managing PR. They are responsible for maintaining order and the organization’s secrets. Rulers: The people who are the very head of the organization (I imagine there are actually three Cassiels, a public face who interests with other organizations, a private face who is the mastermind and the brain who is in charge of the experimental research.
