Alright, time for the big letters. Seeing as very few people tend to offer up assistance with some things of mine, I'll just go ahead and combine a couple of things. And when I say "combine", I mean I'm going to state literally everything I can at the moment about this wonderful little system I have about my world creations. To sum it all up: Virtually every world I've made exists in the same universes, but not on the same dimensional plane. Or Realm, if you dislike he term 'dimensional plane'. So, basically, an event similar to the Big Bang(Theory) was created by this fairly small, but potently powerful race known as the Halidas Aisteran. A massive realm that consists of nothing but one gaegantuan city of light, known as Aistera, is where these Aisterans reside. The universe was created from them exerting 100% of their capability into a kind of energy wave that essentially birthed several hundred different dimensional planes. The collisions of these dimensional planes resulted in an unexpected formation of something known as "Veils". Bland name, I know, but these kept the dimensional planes from mixing, making barriers that vary in "thickness". This brings me to a few particular dimensions, and one specifically known as "Jamular". The name "Jamular" is actually the name of the planet I'll be speaking of, and is subject to change at the moment but this is off topic- Jamular exists with an especially thick Veil that actually has light rips and tears in it. This leaks energies into Jamular that are known to the peoples of Jamular as "Auklunan". Fancy, isn't it? This energy resulted in a limited but present magical power that very few races are capable of even using. Even then, it's limited to "Inscribing", the weaving and embedding Auklunan energies into inorganic matter. You could easily call it Enchanting. Anyways, a neat aspect about Auklunan is that there's a "parasitic" mineral that forms when it comes from Rifts in the Veil of Jamular. It's known as Idiun, and can be quite dangerous when the Rifts it absorbs energy is sapped up before it reaches a state of full energy capacity. Whenever Idiun becomes completely "full", it rejects Auklunan like an extremely pissed toddler and his cereal. But, it only reacts to Auklunan energies that have been Inscribed into an object. When Idiun that is full comes into contact with an Inscribed object, a radial force is generated and sends both objects flying. Now, the intensity of the force depends on the crystal structure of the Idiun and the type and intensity of the Auklunan Inscription. This is where the system of magic comes in and how the weapons of this world works. I won't touch up much about the weapons, but essentially, technological advances have been made that helps control the force produced by Idiun/Inscription contact. Different crystal structured Idiun produces different forces and has varying densities, hardness, etc. So that makes up for different ammunition types. Maybe. There's different minerals, but I'll need to develop all of that. Alright, back to what the title is. If you've ever played Gears of War, you know that the Locusts are pretty darn tough. Real tough. And brutal! Just like the COGs! Well, I've been doing some thinking, and feel as if making a world with a conflict similar to GoW's would be pretty darn neat. I have this realm, its equivocal to the Void, a Jupiter-sized organism exists and is producing several hundreds of different kinds of creatures that it uses to invade other realms. Maybe. I'm up for different ideas. Anyways, this thing, I simply call it the Darkness, has been invading this one realm for a few thousand years, not much real success aside a few near mass-genocides. It decides to take what it made, what's left anyways, and goes after Jamular! Tears open the Veil and plops a massive organism that acts as a HQ of sorts over a major city. If you ever played Fable 2, imagine those Spires you see, it somewhat has that feel. There could also be something underground. I adore differences. Uhm, if you guys could help me make a conflicting antagonistic force, it'd be appreciated. I suppose this is called Group Plotting or something? Anyways, use GoW as a guide, eh? I wouldn't know how to tag this, either. I'm horrible with genres.
