Ok so Im working on a modern fantasy but I cant seem to get it to go anywhere. I was hoping maybe I could get some help brainstorming or even just some advice on how to put everything together. I have basic idea but I cant seem to tie any of my thoughts together. Heres what I have so far: The setting is sometime in the not so distant future shortly after the third world war. The world is now united under a single governing entity and enforced by the (possible name) United Global Army or UGA. Recently a new race of humans has appeared known as "mages" or "magi" (havent decided). These "mages" came about either through genetic mutation and experimentation or evolved somehow (still working that out as well) and are currently shunned and viewed as outcasts by society. The UGA has also recently declared war on them and the "mages" are being hunted down like animals and exterminated in an attempt to wipe them out. There are four known races of "mages" and each has control over a certain element. The only physical difference between mages and humans is that each race of mage has a different eye color determined by their element. The personality of the mages are also determined by their element. Pyromancer - fire, red eyes, ex. personality: angry, hot tempered, etc. Hydromancer - water, blue eyes, ex. personality: caring, nurturing, emotional, etc. Areomancer - air, white eyes, ex. personality: fleeting, carefree, jester, etc. Geomancer - earth, yellow eyes, ex personality: calm, stoic, etc. The plot follows the main character who is a member of the UGA. Hes a SGT on a special operations team known as a Tactical Assault Group or TAG (similar to modern day Special Forces). His team is currently on missions to hunt down mages and kill them and the story opens with them raiding a mage safe-house. Eventually he begins to show powers of his own mysteriously that have never been seen before (Im thinking some kind of telekinetic power) and his eyes eventually turn black. He becomes hunted by his own friends and becomes what he had been hunting. He becomes close friends with two mages one a male the other a female and eventually falls in love with the female as they try to escape from the UGA. I also have two other factions the Red Lotus (not sure who they are yet) and the Dragons (Im thinking they are going to be a mage terrorist organization who conducts attacks to make it look like their are real dragons to scare people but are later discovered to be mages.) Thats about as far as Ive gotten so far like I said cant seem to put anything together and Im not sure how the story should end or what exactly the Main character and his friends are doing other than running. Any help would be appreciated.
