Daily Concepts

I’ve been thinking about this for a while. It seems that every day I get a new thought about future events that happen for either the novel or other stories, but it all relates to the same characters. So now I think I’ll try to write some of these down. Called “daily concepts”, the only reason I haven’t written them is because they change from day to day. Write it down and it’s like stone, it doesn’t change. But this way, it keeps going.

Concept of the day: Savage Wisdom

What would happen if Wisdom ever went mad? Even came close? I’ve had a few guesses at this. The first is because he gets tired of being used by Nature, amongst other things. Today’s thought was about his brother, Shy. Since the battle of the Black Unicorn, Shy gets appointed as new Grand Master to Luxor Castle. That’s a fact. That will happen no matter what concept I create.

But here’s the thing. Shy was raised under false pretense that humans were the enemy. He was raised by a father deluded by the darkness surrounding the land. Once that  father realized his folly, he got over it.

Shy, unfortunately, does not. He walks his father’s original path and is hard on his brother. So this is where the madness comes in. Should the two brothers come to disagree more than a few times, Shy may try a few things in order to “persuade” loyalty.

So my thought was that Wisdom’s son, Keith, returns from one of his own adventures to find his father missing. While questioning around, he discovers his father is being held at Luxor due to a “maddening” illness. Where did such come from? Would Shy harm his brother to gain complete control over all, turning the tides back to the days of his father’s rule?

That remains to be seen.
