It begins with the background of my story. In it, the human race is threatened and their creator is unsure of whether to save them. He regrets creating man, as they have become evil themselves, and they have forgotten him (sound familiar?). Two gods accept his task, which is to prove that humans are worthy of life. To do this, they are re-born on Earth and must destroy the evil themselves while facing all the trials and temptations that humans do. If they succeed, man’s existence will be ensured forever. Well, that's about as much as I can give without giving away my story. Feel free to ask me for more details if you need them, though! My dilemma: Obviously, how are mere humans meant to battle complete evil and actually win (this chick is really bad)? I’m wondering if it’s too underdog. I’ve thought about having them retain some of their godly powers (on a small scale), but wouldn’t that conflict with proving man’s worth who have no powers at all? They will receive help from other deities, humans, and creatures, of course. Still, how are they going to manage this? I’m just afraid that their being without any powers of some sort and just running around with swords could be a bit blaaaaah. I guess when it comes to this there is no avoiding something that has already been done or clichés. It’s killing me! Any ideas? I'll take anything, even a cool power. Thanks in advance!
