So, I had a WIP named Rome: The Punic Chronicles a while back. It was going slow so I scrapped it but I really want to finish it because I have a lot of good ideas for a trilogy and possibly branching sequels.
I’m thinking of places to start. The new version is on the last day in Rome before the MC is sent to Sicily but I’m also thinking about a version where the MC goes through training, so if that sounds better to you, tell me.
If you are familiar with the original WIP, I’m scrapping that background entirely. The new version is going to have you pick from multiple backgrounds and it’s going to be slower in pace(I was told the original was too bullet point).
I have two backgrounds already, a conscripted Germanic slave with superior strength and a aristocrat from a royal family both with(hopefully) deep, unique plots of their own. If you can think of any other good backgrounds, I’m very interested in your input(and advice for better writing in general if you have any).
