Posting some interest cause...it's an interesting concept?
Full Disclaimer: I've never tried a sci-fi mecha RP , but this seems unique enough that I might be able to add something to the narrative.
Are the dragons our characters bonded with defeated enemies of the humanity? ( I would assume this is why there is an artificial intelligence override system necessary to bond pilots with the mechs)
Can you tell me more about the Shard? Like... Does my character know of them/hate them by default? What are the motives of the Shard?
Is this a story with a clear beginning, middle and end? Or is there no specific plot involved?
Thank you so much! Great idea :)
EDIT: you answered one in the OP derp~
