So its been a while since I last posted to this site and I got to admit, my drive for writing took an all time low after school but recently I've been thinking bits and pieces of my old story. I think it was a wise choice to begin anew from the top. I decided to tackle the issue of culture first; the main one wanted to get feedback on and see what others think. So starting with the first is basically the beginning on how the planet came to be. - This is a culture spans throughout the world and its regions. Despite other cultures begin there and fully believed, this is one that most people on the planet (human and beast-folk alike) know of. It is the belief that the planet was born by Gaia (not the most original idea or name but...). In any case, from Gaia the three main powers of the planet arose. Knowledge, Strength, and Magic; held respectively by a human, a lion, and a avian. Gaia gave birth to the three in order for them to work together and create a planet where everyone could share each trait. Instead the three 'Beings of Power' began to fight and bicker among one another, however. Angered by their quarreling, Gaia separated the three to a portion of the planet and chose to let each give govern over their own continent. Time pasted and the 'Beings of Power' anger for one another was replaced by regret; feeling upset that the only friends they had were kept away within their separate region. Wanting to make amends, they gave a portion of their power to the adjacent continent to bestow them with their power; not taking into consideration the toll it would take on them. Each weaken by their generosity, the 'Beings of Power' relied on mortals to uphold the well-being of the planet with the power given to them. ~~~ Still a work in progress but so far this is what I have. Thoughts and feedback welcomed.
