Yes, I would love that Zazza, I had envisioned the Light Character to be a woman anyway. I'll send you a U2U with more details about that role.
May I make some sugessitions and ask some question pls.
The landsape is created, but the heros hourney needs to be fleshed out, if that is the classic story telling tale you wish to employ.
The history and the lands are somewhat fleshed out and the heroes journey will be left to each individual writter.
I want each character to create a country or continent of origin, with a bck story to the character.
The protagonists need to overcome adversity , if they are guardians, then perhaps the story of how they became the guardians?
The story takes place roughly 5 centuries after the formation of the Stones. They are all found in the City of Light. All the guardians have been
selected and are actively guarding the stones from invasion. More details about the initial story set later.
Or the stones are lost and they need to be found?
Nopes, they are all present for the moment. The city is built like a giant circle. Each Guardian has his own tower, the Stone sits on the top of the
tower. Each tower can be seen firing a beam of light which is the color of the element into the middle tower of the city.
Together these 5 lights joining in the middle create a vast shield of energy around the city of light, making it glimmer and shine. It can be see
from thousands of miles away, hence why it is named the City Of Light.
Who or What is the antagonsit?
And what is the adversity that sets the adventure tone?
Is it to maintain balanced control of these stones?
The antagonist is the rest of the world. Most of the other nations are jealous. They are amassing other artifacts of power in an attempt to take
over the City of Light and rule the world. The Guardians protect the balance by making sure they are used for good and not for the sake of war and
I actually like the other idea of the back story , and writing about the lkids who have the power now, did the power stop passing through the people
when it was fused with the gems?
The power did stop passing through people when it was fused with the gems. The leaders of the city, Light And Darkness, choose the person who will
become the Guardian every generation. It will be fully explained in the OP of the actual story thread. The people are chosen on a basis of trials,
combat, magical capabilities etc..
Perhaps a journey of the lost children/teens/whatever trying to find themselves and regain the balance from the gems? hmmmmm
quesiotn questions questions
Their ourney of coming to gether form being found and guided by tthe darkness or the light?
I do like the idea of them being young and attempting to find themselves again. The light and Darkness are the defacto leaders, they would be adults
and are aware of more history and secrets than the Guardians are as they would have been around for centuries. Light And Darkness have NEVER changed
persons. They have ALWAYS been the same.
This is a work in progress and I do like your ideas very much, I hope this somewhat helps your questions....more to come today.
