The point of the genre bender is to take the given trope, something that is a staple of a given genre (whether it be fantasy, modern, futuristic, etc.) and think of a way to make them work in a completely different genre that you would not immediately think of when confronted with this trope. For example: if I were to suggest an outlaw as a challenge, you might think of the Old West, or even Space Pirates, or something like that. But what would an outlaw look like in, say, a faerie forest? Or Ancient Maya? Or even with sentient (talking) feral animals? So take a setting that you would not think of using for the given story idea, and USE IT! A Wizardly Discovery! He always thought he was different, somehow. Nobody could exactly figure out what, including him. Until one day. A possibility never before considered: wizard. And with that gift, comes abilities. A practical wizard makes use of his surroundings. What kind of abilities does he acquire, and how do they help him manipulate his surroundings? Choose your genre, and choose your powers! Create your wizard in a whole new way!
