Tower of Cards 1: Spell Thief [A Progression Fantasy] - Help me decide my Writathon project!
I feel like doing something for the royal road Writathon. I feel like my writing has slowed and I need a challenge to push my speed up. Can’t decide what I want to write, though, so I’ll do a poll.
What would you rather read @everyone ?
1. Gunslinger X Mimic: it’s a western cultivation with a western setting. The protagonist is a one armed man that is an awesome marksman. Unfortunately, most cultivators focus on the two schools that let them shrug off bullets or swiftly heal from wounds. He finds a mentor that helps him discover his magic and becomes a bounty hunter(using magic to become a gun mage of sorts). His familiar will of course be a mimic and the story will focus on them hunting a gang that’s trying to scare and control frontier settlements with creatures like wendigos. This story has a lot of intrigue/internal myth/native American and medieval Europe inspired mythical creatures too.
2. The Power Of Friendship Is OP:
Pokémon but in a fantasy world with summoners. Protagonist and his family raise beasts whose scales are used to make mana batteries. When sabotage from a rival family threatens the farm, he is forced to follow his late father’s footsteps and become a tournament summoner.
Think gym/league battles which is popular entertainment for the masses. The story also has some academy stuff, animal rearing/farm stuff. The story takes inspiration from all mythologies using creatures like kelpies, qilin, manticores and a variety of stuff. The tale will feature monster evolution and team building as the primary growth mechanic.
