Iím looking for something a bit lighter than what Iíve been writing recently. I enjoy the dark and dramatic, but something more in line with a fun smutty romp is in order for me right now. Iím not ruling out these going a little more long term, but itís not a necessity. So, here are a couple of ideas Iíve come up with, but Iíd love to hear any other ideas anyone has that fit the feel.
The Red Mare Tavern and Inn.
A supernatural bar and inn. Vampires, angels, satyrs, and elves all rub elbows here. The big minotaur at the door acts as the bouncer to ensure everything stays peaceful, and heís taken down guys twice his size without a problem. The owner is looking to hire a new server, but there is a catch. Part of the uniform for the job is a silver chain with small ruby at the end. The necklace induces lust in the wearer. The owner wonít lie about the necklace, but the gold might be too good to pass up.
The setting was conceived to be traditional fantasy, but if youíd prefer something more modern that could work too.
Find of the century
An archeologist has been doing a dig on a previously undiscovered island. This island could be the site of the fabled city of Atlantis. Unfortunately, the dig has been going on for months and nothing has been found apart from shards of pottery and foundations of buildings. There have been writings, significant artifacts, or any sign of who once lived here or what they were like.
One night however, while working late in one of the largest ruins on the island, the archeologist finds a secret compartment with an oil lamp inside. The brass lamp seems to have some writing that could provide a clue as to what this city was like. The archeologist rubs away the dirt and suddenly green smoke billows from lamp and when it clears there is a spirit floating there, dressed in ancient robes with a clever grin on its face. The spirit offers a wish in exchange for its new found freedom.
The archeologist leaps at the chance and foolishly wishes to know all about what this city is like, and the world goes dark. When the archeologist wakes up it is thousands of years in the past, in a world where magic is common place and the city is bustling with life. Can this student of history find their way through a city who views sex much more liberally than anyone today? Can they find a way home? Do they want to?
Iíd be more than willing to play any part in this story.
This is the bin I'm throwing all my random not formed ideas into. Super stream of consciousness. Something with Star Wars or Star Trek could be cool if not done too seriously. Something with Orcs could be cool? Cat girls? I don't know. Something with super heroes could be fun. You ever play City of Heroes? Like that.
As I said at the beginning, any ideas you have that fit the feel of what Iím thinking are welcome. You have something specific your craving that you want to include, let me know. Like an idea, but would like to tweak it a little? Let's talk. What Iíve been writing has been very fun and I want to continue it, but I need something a little different in the mix. Send me a line.
