Is this an interesting setting for stories?

So I'd like to write stories on FA but since I'm a beginner I thought to write about the lore and setting of my stories first in order to clear my ideas too, rather than straight out write my first story.
Basically things revolve around two rivaling groups that both work for the social integration between humans and furs/mythological creatures but in very different and harsh ways: The Avalon Agency and The Golgothians.
What do you think? Is this a nice setting? Did I correctly convey the backstory and motivations of each group or did I leave too much mystery? Would you read stories about the characters living among these groups? (Is my English good enough since it isn't my native language?)

It sounds interesting and you have a peculiar, if slightly annoying, writing style. However, it seems that both sides don't mix that well when it comes to genres (with the Golgothians fitting more in a spy/thriller/noir setting, and the Agency being more at ease in SOL or adventure-ish stories).

I'd definitely give them a try.

Thanks, I almost thought this thread was about to get forgotten... for improvement, may I ask in which way did you find the writing slightly annoying?

The whole "classified information" was quite interesting both when taking into account the censorship it has, which makes a lot of sense in context, and how you treated both lores as digital files along with some of the issues they could have in the real world.

Nonetheless, it made them a chore to read. Garbled text, unnecessary headers, and text format clearly showed when to skip text and encouraged to do so.

Mmmh I see... hopefully I don't plan to ALWAYS write in that format ;)

To anyone still interested: I recently revised those two texts in an attempt to improve the reading before submitting my first story (which should happen very soon) set in that universe. It's basically the same stuff in content, but now with some corrections and better format. Thanks and have a nice day!
