I have an idea for a story I’d like to start making into a game here. I’ve been looking over the ChoiceScript stuff and am pretty sure I’ve got my head wrapped around most of it, but I’d like to know if anyone thinks the story idea I have in mind is any good before I actually start writing it.
Before I go any further, though, I should probably introduce myself. My pen name is Shadou Fireborn, and I have several (unfinished/in progress) works up at Fanfiction.net. My most recent work I feel I’ve written myself into a corner and am having a hard time progressing, and am probably going to end up rewriting the whole story. But that’s off the relevant topic here. I consider myself an author (whether or not anyone else does), and am a native English speaker with several college level English courses behind me. Additionally, I have a passing familiarity with several programming languages, and most of an Associates in Computer Science, Software Engineering. I’m currently working shitty jobs while trying to finish that Associates.
Here’s the pitch:
You’re a normal young man/woman, from a normal world set in modern day Earth, who through nearly impossible circumstance was the recipient of a Wish. Your wish? “I wish to change the world”.
This wish ripped you out of your cozy reality, thrusting you into a world of magic and possibility. A fantasy world, where magical girls and power rangers (among other things) are commonplace. And there, you find yourself enrolled in an academy for aspiring Magical Champions, people with the power to change their worlds, for better or worse. With the training you will receive, you will have the power to effect dramatic change in your world, simply by proving one simple thing: Magic is Real.
But not all is as it seems. How was anyone able to grant a magical wish to a mundane from what had been a magically dead world? Who could be so powerful as to achieve such a feat? And what dark forces could have been alerted to your world’s existence, and even now plan to cause chaos and destruction in a world that could not possibly contain any threats to them?
An even more important question: Will you battle those forces… or join them?
