Are you tired of reading the same story every time you pick up a fantasy book? Are you a writer who wants to change that? Here’s some character ideas, monster ideas, and location ideas for you to contemplate. No dragons, elves, or castles included!
Look, we’ve done it. We have both read and/or written books jam-packed with the base fantasy elements that are so prevalent in said genre. Beer-swigging dwarves. A main character who becomes nobility either through inheritance and an unknown genealogy—or because he’s the chosen one. A final battle between good and evil and good prevails because of…love??? Let’s turn it around people. Let’s derail that train. No more of the same drivel. No more political pandering. Let’s shake it up with new ideas. What I’m suggesting is not what has never been done before (you’ll be hard pressed to find a pure novel idea) but it is a series of options that are fresh in comparison to what’s mostly out there. Without further ado, let Rafael help you out a bit:
Anyways, there’s some ideas to get you brainstorming. But actually, now that I think about it. Don’t use these ideas. These are mine. I’ll write these books. You go think of something else. Or you can pay me some money or something. At least give me some well-deserved credit and point me in the direction of more money. That would be cool too.
