I am brainstorming ideas for a new book plot and would like your opinion on the structure of it and if it's not a cleche plot. Time: Space tech / magic era Place: Jimson (named after the plants that causes delerium/insanity when ingested) Geography: decaying land with remainents of poisonous gas previously used when a major war scorched the land. This gas has been known to cause delerium and insanity making their inhabinants rather unstable but unable migrate (without a guide(I'll explain later what they are)) due to their physiological diseases. The terrain is mostly burnt with pools of the gas (that liquified). Has animals however they were also affected by the gas making them very aggressive and often confused, which is why cannibalism Is a normal sight in this place. Inhabitants: variety of races live their but the man ones are; necromancers, guides(may changes name, they are humans with gas masks that had created a hierarchy since the gas will not penetrate their air filters, this often leads the natives to be mistreated or taken advantage of). The necromancers main colony I here because of their infatuation with death , insanity, and the dark arts. They have a higher tolerance to the gas more than others however they still slowly lose their minds. Although they slowly lose their minds, they utilize this handicap as a crutch to increase the blood lust and faith to their god (a god that is also insane don't know details yet) Main characters: a 24 old necromancer who's mind is starting to dwindle away but meets a counter part to help keep his sanity Bloodnymph: a humanoid creature that's life is completely dependent on an ample amount of blood (which is why their population is almost null in the continent). She meets the necromancer whom has an affinity for blood meaning he creates an unlimited supply of blood in which he utilizes for rituals and is also used as a walking blood source for the nymph. (rest of details in progress) Plot: (simplified) starts with the necromancer trying to find a cure for his dwindling mental capacity rather than become a savage. He eventually meets the nymph who , by herself, taken residence at a guide slave farm (she is able to live by draining the blood of all the slaves declared incapable of performing take deemed by the guides). When they meet they start to form a bond and begin to kill guides and befriending criminal syndicates to find a way out of jimson. I know it was somewhat wordy and a little over the place but that's why it's called a brainstorm I just need help to orginize my thoughts into a viable story. Thankyou for reading and any help is appreciated.
