So, I have a challenge for myself and I don't know if anyone wants to help me out, but I think it would be pretty fun.
I want new story Ideas but I also wanna see the free expression of characters, so I figured, why not let someone else choose what the characters do.
And I don't mean choose your own adventure, a, b, c, or d. I mean, completely chose. I may write "a silouette crosses Mario" and if whomever handles mario decides to ignore it, there goes that, challenges to think of ways of driving the plot forward.
Now I'll write the lore and be the overseeing narrator (although cool to add ideas together) secondary characters, and some stuff related to the plot idea (some 2ndary characters, and maybe a bad guy I wanna have in the lore), but based on the character choice the entire plot could change. Protagonist, lead 2ndary characters, and maybe even villians, I want for someone else to make the choices.
It'll be an ensemble cast to get multiple ideas, but once we get a good plot going, then somebody would take the role of a selected new character, etc.
The setting is modern day, and general plot would be the world of magic! like illusionist and magicians, (think the sorcerers apprentice movie with nic cage, or the now you see me movies)and the first set of characters would be a regular human, and their lives will change.
For now tho, If you wanna play along, leave:
Occupation (student, worker).
Nationality (maybe we make it an across the globe thing?)
Any specific quirk or detail you want your character to have? (very shy, hates bugs)
To get started I'll leave you with an opening from the character I'll play, a deity type character to introduce us to this world. (I like to write in a screenplay style cause it helps differentiate the dialog)
Lets see where this goes!
