just a place where i can develop things.
more developed page centering around Marciel (an app for Visol that fell through) can be found HERE.
each character will be getting a personalized page similar to the above. or each will hold a different aspect of the game. ideally there will be a character select screen with each racer and their pit crew in the format of a console screen in addition to an individual page for each actual character.
8-Bit Bruce (Marciel)
Pirate Xwee (Cious)
The strategist. This charmer's an ace at the wheel and a magician with steel. Although his home lies at sea, Cious brings knowledge that can only be scavenged from years of travel.
Robot Pteri (Shint)
The technician. Being a robot, Shint is incredibly adept at mechanics. She's lightning quick despite the clunky armour and incredibly accurate. Shint specializes in chemistry and one day hopes to perfect her transmogrification potion even at the expense of her intelligence.
Initially supposed to have a twin/another neopet that is the 'after' version (mutant pteri). Instead: a potion is successful in transforming Shint's consciousness into a mutant pteri, but it goes wrong and the mutant pteri escapes and eventually become the strategist for TEAM (UNNAMED). Shint is able to reupload herself into new casings with the help of her team.
Mutant Chomby (Nesati)
Story is tied in with Arrist.
Mutant Acara (Mordira)
the first successful result of the 'Actual Villain's' experimentation. the process left her with the ability to power the biomechanical kart that the 'Actual Villain' created. she was granted access to the kart only once. after feeling a powerful connection with the kart, she became powerhungry and threatened to overpower it which would destroy herself and the kart. after realizing that the experimentation left her in a spontaneous, unstable, state, he attempted to discard her on a remote island alongside other failed experiments. the failed experiments are harmless, and only labelled failures due to their incompatibility with the 'Actual Villain's' karts. they roam neopia and are taken in by users (like you, garfield_chubz!). Mordira was unable to be adapt to that life. Though the 'Actual Villain' had attempted to wipe her memory (as he does with all pets before he discards them), he was unable to. While she was experimenting with her kart, she ran away with it when she realized what 'Actual Villain' was trying to do. She crashed it of course, far far away from the 'Actual Villain's' hideaway. Currently uses a version that is similar and powerful, but nothing close to the real thing.
is technically the antagonist as she competes against Visol, but her true intention is to seek revenge against the 'Actual Villain'.
planned to do this but Mordira ran away with her kart.
Mutant Pteri (Chaos_Natal)
The result of an experiment by Shint. Has fair knowledge of Team Tekhne, as she is essentially Shint.
Robot Bruce (Crooksheanks)
Although a pickpocket by trade, Sheanks was recruited to assist Mordira as leading technician of her pit crew. Despite denials between the two, it seems as though Sheanks and Shint have met before. Actual name is Sheanks, but is a Crook. Unbeknownst to them both, Shint and Sheanks were early creations by the 'Actual Villain' back when he attempted to build the perfect racer as opposed to transfiguring one. this explains their expertise with circuitry as they were programmed to also be able to fix themselves and their vehicles. their memories were wiped before being discarded.
Arrist and Nesati discovered each other behind the ruins of the lab ray scientist's tower during the 2012 Apocalypse. Arrist's form was unstable and continued to change despite zapping, so Nesati fought to protect them both. Even after doomsday, Nesati continues to stick around as Arrist's form has yet to stabilize.
(Lab Ray Scientist) - though Mordira is the antagonist, the lab ray scientist is the universe's Greater villain. something to do with experimentation with karts and manipulating neopets to become better racers. either leaves 'failed' experiments to fend for themselves on planet of Neopia (and so is located in space) or leaves them outside his laboratory to roam but far enough away that no one will find him again. is actually very sympathetic to his experiments. wipes their memories so they forget the pain they have undergone (and also all traces of knowledge that he exists), and knows that neopians (users) will find and care for them. doesn't intend to do serious harm. he is merely a mad scientist who has is attempting to reach a goal.
SO WHERE DOES RACING COME IN?
Fast forward! 'Actual Villain' has perfected his biomechanical karts/racers. These karts are essentially extensions of the racers. Their appearance is similarly styled, and a user 'plugs in' and uses brain signals and thoughts to move. They are DNA-locked, unable to be used by anyone aside from the racer it was created for.
Actual Villain' creates a tournament. It is no secret that his racers are engineered. This is actually the incentive. If a racer is able to beat his team of racers, they will be given the opportunity to have a kart created especially for them! Of course this catches the attention of Mordira who is now deadset on winning.
The storyline is actually more detailed surrounding Mordira, Shint (and Mutant Pteri Counterpart). But this is beneath the light-hearted videogame theme I wanted for my neopets. Mainly, NeoKART is just a chance for me to create pixelly pages and characters.
TEAM (ACTUAL VILLAIN)
The team is made up of a myriad of racers! Since the karts are biomechs, the racer dictates the 'health' of the kart. A doctor pet and the 'Actual Villain' helps out with anything that goes wary. They're slightly dependant on the 'Actual Villain' in this sense.
