Hikari story thread (violent/mature supernatural adventure shounen story)

Post by Zephyr on Tue Sep 20, 2016 10:35 pm

So this is the thread for a story idea I've been cooking up for a while now. I'm planning this to be a huge, epic tale of destiny, ancient magic, and plain ol' fighting, so it's gonna be hard to summarize. I'll do my best by filling out the five essential story elements.

WHERE: Earth, all over the world. It's gonna be a big, globe-trotting adventure. I'm going to be using these pixel art gifs as settings for key parts of the story, as you can see they're set in different locations all around the world. Mainly Japan, and our story will be no different

WHEN: The year 2050. The world is notably different. The various powers that rule each country have nearly bankrupted themselves through international conflicts, feuds, and disputes, but no major catastrophes have happened(i.e. nukes). However, gangs and more organized crime syndicates have more or less taken charge of their respective countries.

WHO: Our characters! A rag-tag group of battle-ready fighters, each with unique weapons and more unique superhuman/supernatural abilities. Think X-Men. (Or RWBY, but not everyone in the world has these abilities.)

WHY: For glory, for honor, for vengeance, to save the world, or just for the adventure. Our characters' motivations will of course be varied and diverse.

WHAT: In some of the gifs linked above in the WHERE section, you'll see a dark floating orb, giving off bolts of lightning and shrouded in stormclouds. This will be the focus of the overarching plot of the story. In it, the mysterious orb appears, heralded by violent storms. In its presence, humanoid shadow monsters clad in samurai armor, wielding katanas(some even have multiple arms, all holding swords) appear, and slaughter all in sight. But it's not permanent. The orb is only present as long as the storm persists. After the orb leaves, the shadow samurai leave, after completing whatever goal they came to accomplish. The overarching plot will be to fight these creatures, learn the nature of the orb, and put an end to the carnage.


what do you think? questions, comments, input?

Class: Takeout delivery boy

Special powers: Kendo (a spirit-like force that augments his body and fighting abilities a hundred fold. When he activates this power, he must use it to kill his enemy, for it will not go away until he does. And when he does, it takes a year off his natural life expectancy. When activated, his body and sword gives off a blue-colored energy/aura)

Weapon: Katana

Background story: Takeo is the only child of a single father, who owns a small sushi restaurant in Okinawa. He is also a retired smith, who crafted the finest katanas in Japan, and trained Takeo on how to use them since he was young. Now, Takeo works for his father as a delivery boy, and yearns for a more...interesting life.
