Hello and good morning/day/afternoon/night. Depends on when you read this. First I want to thank you for taking the time to read this. First a little intreduction of myself so you get a picture of what kind of person I am. Also the name of the project may change. Not too fond of the name but it was the first that came to my mind.
TLDR: "I like writing and I like ChoiceScript-Games (CSG). That's why I gonna make my own!"
I am not completely new to writing a story and programming. Also what should be obvious I am no stranger to CSG. But this will be my very first attempt to create my own CSG. I also like to apologize in advance if updates/new content is sometimes a bit... messy. I will mostly find time to write on this late at night - like the creation of this topic - so if there are a lot of mistakes in the text, blame it on my half asleep brain that thinks everything looks good and fine. I may find/ask other people to read the gibberish I produced beforehand but if that is not the case: jump one sentence back. As for my motivation there is no grand enlightenment on a story that no one has ever seen before. It is just me who really enjoys these kind of games and want to try to create one myself. And the hope of a smile on my and the readers face when they enjoy my work. So without further ado let me intreduce you to my idea:
TLDR: Fantasy | Gods | Spirits | Special Eyes | Martial Arts | Discrimination | Playable Demo 1.1.17 |
The story will be set in a world where the four elements (fire/water/wind/earth) are mighty beings which have created it. But they were unable to create life with purpose. That is when the twins Order and Chaos appeared and offered the elements a deal and help them with their creation of life. They would give them purpose but these beings would struggle their entire life in a battle of wits between the twins. Not seeing the grand scheme of the two they accepted and only later realising that now all their children would be playthings of the twins.
They were dethroned as the gods and just became the ruler of their lands not their other creations. Because the elements still wanted to be connected to their children they planted a seed in every of their children which would bond them together. So if their children would nourish this bond the elements would give them a portion of their power. They called it spiritbonding and over the centuries their children would start to call them the Spirits. Some creation were connected just to one Spirit, many to multiple and a few to all of them. One of these few special beings are humans. And in rare cases a being connected to all four Spirits will be blessed with their love.
In the case of humans their eyes iris will be constantly changing colors and they will be able to see the flow of force. Force is the manifestion of the powers given by the spirits. A human that is loved by the Spirits will be able to see how other creatures use powers of the Spirits with their amassed knowledge by spiritbounding. Hence a blessed being will be able to easly copy them with some exceptions and restrictions. Obviously if a dragon breaths fire a human can't do that. Their bodys don't provide the base. But they can imitate it by using force. So a human that studied dragons long enough and trained to endure flames in their mouths could get an answer by the Spirits. If a blessed one would try to copy this kind of technique he would probably burn his mouth to a state that would need special healing or he would die.
In this world you will be one of these rare few humans which is blessed by the Spirits. But humanity sees your eyes or more particularly your sight as a curse. Because of other blessed ones that lifed before you were born. Most of them became monsters. Able to see force is the equivalent of an answer sheet. You only have to watch someone using their technique which they spent months, years or even decades creating and you get the hang of it in a few seconds. Probably you still will need some training to recreated perfectly but that may just take some weeks. Hence the former blessed ones absorbed - or how others would say stole - every technique they could set their eyes on. Most of them became obsessed finding new things to learn and demonstrating their power. And with power came corruption. A century ago the last blessed one was finally defeated after he ravaged the lands with war and named himself the ruler of humanity. Since then a law enacted which said that every child born with the blessing of Spirits will be blinded by their coming of age ceremony.
So with that I hope I have givin you a first (good) impression of my idea and I got you interested. "If" you find any errors please feel free to roast... I mean correct me per PM I would appreciated it. If you have any questions also feel free to ask. Because one of my new years resolutions is to finish this project and release new content for it every 1-2 months. So with that I wish you a good day/night. Again... depends on when you read this.
