Hello, everyone. I am working on a plot, and I wanted to see if the concept is good. It is a fantasy story with some "hero" characters (comparable perhaps to mythological heroes.) This is the opening to it, I was planning on using it to start the prologue but I think it works standalone (being by itself before the first chapter.) They didn’t know it, but their land was on the verge of war. There would be not one living thing in the region with a life unchanged. None would return to their former lives after what was about to occur. A shadow was on the horizon. A great foe was about to emerge. A foe which could not be defeated but by a hero, and a war which could not be won without a few. The story follows three students at a college of magic (they aren't learning how to cast spells so much as learning about magical things and how to deal with them, light stuff) whose old professor gives them heroic ability without their knowledge. They graduate soon after, and their power begins appearing bit by bit getting them out of all sorts of trouble. The exact things they go to do and what ends up happening is a bit complicated, but obviously a war starts and they start playing a pivotal role while discovering their own powers. That is, I have some good plot which I'm happy with and don't really want to change (or post) but I don't know if I ruin it by taking the hero thing too far. I don't know if this is a good concept overall, I fear making the main characters too powerful could be a pretty bad thing. Alternative: I'm thinking of changing things somewhat. They'd still be heroes (not necessarily the only heroes,) but not superheroes. I'd cut out the part where the professor gives them the magic enhancer stuff. Rather, they'd become heroes based less in some physical advantage but in character, which the reader can relate to more. They might not be as strong in battles, but my plot wasn't based around a lot of battles they needed to fight it. You can save the world during times of war without fighting the battles, after all. The professor will still be there, but probably to give them advice.
