As you've been probably keeping up with me around here, I've been mapping out a prototype idea that will become my next project after Chaos Rising. Mostly in the form of TV Trope-style bios but I've also spent some time rehearsing and brainstorming various scenarios either mentally or verbally (a common habit of mine, to the confusion of everyone around me who happens to see it). Given the fact that this idea hasn't gotten overly complex, which is what killed my previous prototype idea, it's starting to take shape. Therefore, I would like some feedback on it and any possible suggestions on the direction that this idea should take.

The basic premise is this: Nova Blitz, a rather ordinary 21-year old gets chosen by a Demon King to become his newest "champion" in order to destroy the Undead King and his Undead Army on the world known as Edyn. However, there is one teeny-tiny, terrible problem: Nova has plasmophobia, or fear of ghosts and undead, which means he's forced to fight a war against the very thing he's terrified of. He is also generally weak-willed, timid, and a cowardly lion, making him unfit to fight against such a powerful and ancient foe. He is given an artifact called the Demon King Ring (name may change), a golden ring that has several adjustable levels and that he can't take off that'll grant him the ability to use powerful magic in order to compensate for his lack of any natural magic in this realm of sorcery and monsters. Nova has no choice but to do his forcefully assigned task otherwise he can't go home. Along the way he makes friends in the form of Nina Firewing, the renegade princess of Phoenixwing Kingdom and a member of the Phoenix Clan with a rare gift, Sir Reginald Ganner, a high-ranking knight of the Galvatar Kingdom, Kettu Softfoot, a Werefox thief with a vendetta against the Undead Army, Van Junko, the noble and honorable Centaur warrior, Zeeker Cackle, the hyena Beastman with an unknown history, and Angelo Bubblehop, Prince of Aquatica and a member of the Hopper Clan. He also makes some enemies outside of the Undead Army such as Dominic Flight, a showboating wannabe warrior who will stop at nothing to get his way and bed as many women as possible, including Nina, the Phoenixwing Royal Family who seek to drag Nina back to their kingdom to satisfy their selfish and greedy desires, and others. Will Nova and his misfit group be able to end the 3,000 year stalemate war between Edyn and the Undead King?

That's the general layout so far. There are also two themes that act as something of a backbone for the series: Courage and Karma (more the former than the latter but it still plays a prominent role regardless). There are other lesser themes such as fighting fate, worthiness of one's love, the price of greed, revenge, atoning for past failures, war and letting go of the past. Also, unlike Chaos Rising, this series will have more lighthearted moments, such as more prominent running gags, slapstick, and other forms of comedy. It will, however, also have a higher maturity rating due to things like nudity, sex, lust, and death being more commonplace even compared to Chaos Rising already having the "M" rating.

Now, I need some feedback and suggestions on this idea. Does this idea sound promising? In terms of suggestions, I'm looking for are things like a series name (its current placeholder name is "Darkness Dawns" but that's a bit too generic at best, especially since I want it to match the theme(s) of the series), possible character ideas that can act as either friends or foes, potential enemies (both regular monsters and more prominent foes), spell names and effects (I already have the 9 elements laid out, which is mostly a cut-and-paste from Chaos Rising: Fire, Wind, Water, Earth, Lightning, Ice, Wood, Light, and Dark), ideas for familiars, and any other ideas you think would work here. Please leave any thoughts, suggestions, recommendations, and feedback for me, as it'll help this idea take root and become a future project. Thank you for your time and happy posting.

Update time.

Today I thought up of some lore to this new idea. Basically a bit of background info regarding how the whole ordeal began. Here's what I've cooked up so far.

Edyn is a world parallel to Earth. It formed, grew, and developed at the same pace as Earth did. However, it is a world with more magic than technology, thereby making it more of a foil to Earth. The magic in the planet's core caused certain creatures to evolve different, creating various monsters in the process. However, the different races on Edyn adapted to this evolution, gaining new properties in the process. Despite the monsters Edyn was a peaceful world. However, that would soon change.

In the Netherworld, a dark, hidden realm that connects to all worlds, a fierce power struggle was taking place. The Demon King and his army were facing off against the Undead King and his army. Both were fighting for supremacy, although the Demon King fought to maintain peace and order in the Netherworld, while the Undead King fought to conquer and rule with an iron fist. However, the Demon King's army had notable advantages that allowed them to push the Undead King and his Undead Army into a corner. Left without any hopes of surviving the oncoming demonic army the Undead King managed to open a gateway to another realm and fled, ending up in the world of Edyn.

Finding a world where he, at first, thought his mortal enemies couldn't follow, the Undead King quickly established a new Undead Army, complete with Captains and Generals, in order to turn Edyn into his own domain. This sudden invasion cause the synchronization between Earth and Edyn to shatter, with the time flow on Edyn becoming far more rapid to the point that months could pass on Edyn while only minutes would pass on Earth. The people of Edyn rallied together to defend their world from the Undead King but were fighting a losing battle, especially since the Undead King's presence had caused the local monsters to become more powerful and more vicious, along with introducing the concept of Undead-type monsters to Edyn. Losing ground rapidly, Edyn prayed to their Goddess who resides in the planet's core for help. In response, she opened a gateway to the Netherworld to allow the Demon King and his army to enter Edyn and aid them in their time of crisis. With the help of the Demon King and his army the people of Edyn were able to reclaim their world from the Undead King. However, the Undead King survived the final battle, having fled to a remote location in order to recover. The Demon King settled on Edyn to keep an eye on the Undead King until he made his next move, joining the Goddess in the planet's core, which also allowed him to rest after many centuries of long battles.

Every now and then surges of Undead Army remnants would emerge in an attempt to revive the Undead King and allow him another chance to conquer and rule. In response, the Demon King would summon a "noble soul" from another world to act as his champion and guide the people of Edyn to victory, equipping said noble soul with his prized weapon: the Demon King Ring. This continued for 3,000 years in Edyn time, although every champion failed to find and outright destroy the Undead King, especially since the Undead King was a coward and would often use decoys of himself to distract his foes while he remained hidden, but the champions were successful enough that it forced the Undead Army back into hibernation multiple times. The Demon King and Goddess tried many times to figure out a way to lure the Undead King out of hiding so he could be finished off for good. It was the Demon King who came up with a wild gambit that could potentially lure the Undead King into a false sense of security and expose him, allowing the next champion to finish the job for good. Which leads us to the current start of the series.

What do you think? Does this sound like a good bit of lore to the prototype idea? Let me know what you think.

As you've probably heard me say in some other threads I've managed to come up with a Monster List and a (potentially complete) Familiar List. I figured I might as well share them with you so you can get an idea of how these concepts work. First, the Monster List.

This is what I've gotten so far. I want to keep the Monster List at the current length so I don't go overboard like I did with Chaos Rising. As for the Familiar List, it's possibly complete but I'm open to suggestions for new additions and whatnot if you feel like it. Let me know what you think and please give me some feedback on this, as it'll help encourage me to do more. That's all for now.

Time for another update.

Okay, as I've said in the "What Did You Write Today" thread a few times, I've finished the Spell, Familiar, and Skill Lists for my prototype idea. They will be posted below. Also I have, at least at the moment, decided on a series name: "Dawn of Courage". Considering that "courage" is one of the major themes with this series (the other being "karma", albeit to a somewhat lesser degree), it felt like a decent fit for the prototype series. I might change it again, depending on how I feel about it later, but, for now, the new name is "Dawn of Courage". And as for the lists, here they are.
