Well, as long as my writer's block hasn't remains regarding this setting, I've decided to write in a setting I know better. I haven't published the setting info on my blog, but I'll write it now and publish it there (out of order though it may be) if that helps anybody. The current work I am writing is a couple short fables, one being the exploits of an adventurer, another a general and another a small party of soldiers best described as commandos. The adventurer is reknowned for killing two gods single-handedly (even if one was a cold-blooded murder), the general for leading an army that killed not one but twelve gods (mostly minor dieties, but still) throughout his career and the soldiers for assassinating two gods. All of this is before the stories, the stories themselves are about the aftermath of their deicides. (They'd all be published in one post. It's part of an anthology.) In this setting, dieties regenerate from all wounds other than cardiac trauma, do not bleed or feel pain from wounds unless they reach vitals, (or major blood vessels, but even those don't bleed much or for long) and even if they die from most wounds they will come back to life if their heart is intact. (It also has to be in their chest and that means they need to have a chest for it to be in. Destroy every other organ in their body, their heart won't matter.) And to make it more challenging, gods are so durable that minor heart trauma isn't always fatal for them, and their flesh is much tougher than mortal flesh. I'm having two issues. First, I want the reader to understand how impressive such an accomplisment is and take the character seriously for it. Second, want to do this and do it without the reader losing respect for the remaining dieties within the stories. If the reader doesn't take all the major characters seriously, what's the point in them taking any seriously?
