This is a quest set in the Essari Setting, following a race of autistic crystal weaving aliens. The stitchers. you will play as a small force of them, attempting to build and maintain a "stitcherbot" the highest symbol a member of the Whitestone Empire can possess. The robotics of this setting are driven by a fluid filled, electrically reactive, inorganic, crystalline polymer, and the aesthetic is slightly inspired by super robots, and the lore of the game in which it is based upon. link below for reference material.
The Crusade to liberate what was undiscovered Whitestone territory from an indigenous species who were illegally occupying it has gone well. They were removed via poison gas, electrocution and good old fashioned stitcher know-how, which is mostly genocidal violence.
The Empire in it's wisdom has rewarded the weary forces of the crusade with what is certainly not exile; the chance to settle the freshly reclaimed but previously unknown island territories. Left with their skills and the equipment used to wage war and support military logistics, the crusading force set to work on their new task. Fighting forces were pared off as "taskforces" and in accordance with ancient naming conventions of stitcherkind, adoped the name of a mineral. Normally this would be a precious stone, but the Whitestone empire values the color white above all, and the taskforces are but loyal appendages of the great empire, in its perfect unity.
The taskforces were divvied up based on unit cohesion and function. Many units were blessed with an avatar of great pride, the mighty Stitcherbot! While capable field mechanics, your's was not. You are also very small at less than 50 members strong. However, you are entrusted with maintaining and repairing an equipment boneyard. While not glamorous, or respected, or even appreciated, it is the solemn duty of Taskforce Calcite! That's you!"
