So, over the last few weeks, I've been in a 'need to do something exceptionally productive' mood, and because of this, I have been working on creating a story that may become a web comic, maybe a book... Regardless of its final format, I'm having trouble generating the raw ideas I need. What I hope to do is find a few people that might be interested in the premise, and would be willing to fill character roles to give me some content to work with. As of now, here's what the story looks like:
The Astral Realm, gathering place of the spirits. This world is compromised of many separate lands, the largest of which is home to the four Elements. The continent is split in 4, and each Elemental owns a quarter of this land, with the capital city in the center being owned by all of them together. Every 200 years, the Elementals gather at the temple in the center of the city to recharge a large magical crystal, the purpose of which is to keep magic strong in the world and allow peace to continue for the next 200 years. During the charging process, however, an army of humans from Earth invade the temple, capturing the Elementals in artifacts and using their power for their own. Only the Elemental of Wind escapes and finds her way to Earth, where she is drawn to a young man and binds her soul to his to hide herself.
Everything to this point is what I consider the prologue, and here's where I need help. I'm having problems fleshing out characters for the most part, so if I can find enough interested people, I would like to start an RP that would begin as the Elementals are first arriving to the city for the festival, and up to at least the invasion of the human army. To this extent, I will list the characters I will require.
Adomos, Elemental of Earth
Arila, Elemental of Air
Aiden, Elemental of Fire
Arlynn, Elemental of Water
Generals of the Elements (One General for each Element. These guys are the ones that capture the elements using the artifacts and use their powers.)
Leader of the army (Haven't put any thought into him.)
Familiars of Elements (Still an idea I'm playing with. Should this idea become a web comic, I saw these guys as advisers to the Elementals who, due to there being less magic on Earth compared to the Astral Realm, would appear chibi if summoned on Earth.)
Keepers of the Temple (NPC character that I'll probably take care of. These guys will be akin to angels for the most part.)
And then one last thing with this story. While I'm just looking for general ideas for now, along with how the characters could act and how in depth I want to get with the prologue, I am interested in making the story not exactly PG-13. For example, should this become a web comic, I hope to have nudity, suggestions to drugs, and general adult humor and situations. A lot of this comes from the recent webcomics I've been reading to study, my roommate getting me into Game of Thrones, and because I believe I can be more creative if I have fewer limits. I have plenty more details if anyone wants more on the story, along with some personalities for the Elementals that I have been testing out. Hope to hear something soon!
