Hey everyone! Well since I'm taking a creative writing course this coming school year, I decided to practice by making a story of my own. This will be a fantasy story with warriors, healers, mages, etc. So if you played an RPG, you would be familiar. The society is pretty advanced since one of my characters uses a gun as his main weapon, while another uses a bow and arrow as hers. So I would say it's mixed. But anyways, here's the plot:
In the Kingdom of Larein, the queen is bed ridden and gravely ill due to a rare and fatal sickness. The royal healers inform the king, Edward Levasseur, that the typical healing spell cannot cure his wife and the only way to save her is by finding a special item. Distressed, the king sends out an order saying "The one who brings me this item will be rewarded 10,000,000 grad (the story's currency)". Filled with excitement, adventurers from near and far, including the main protagonist Austin Ernest, travel to the Larein continent, which is where this item is rumoured to reside in.
The problem is, I have no idea what this item should be! It has to be extremely rare and hard to find because I'm planning on Austin going from town to town, forest to forest, and cave to cave searching for it. So, any idea's on what it could be and what these adventures must do to obtain it? Also, I don't want Austin to be alone on this quest. Any ideas on cool characters that should join/help him? He's a novice adventure. And he is a called a guardian, which are people who carry swords and sheilds and mainly protect their team. The most that I want accompanying him would be about 3 or 4 others. Thanks in advance and sorry if this was too long.
