So the "zodiac sign" trope is probably completely beaten to death about now, but I have an idea I think is really, really interesting that involves said zodiac signs and a Hunger Games-like concept, so I'm just going to throw it out there and gauge the response. The story is relatively simple, but you have to be okay with potential character death. Here's some mood music. Long ago, there were twelve Gods and Goddesses, here on out referred to as the Zodiacs; they were selfish, childish, boastful, and corrupt. They each desired children, so they consulted each other in a meeting and created the idea of the human. When a new human is born, it will be adopted by a Zodiac. They agreed, and created the inhabitable Earth as well as the first humans. All was well. A long, long time afterwards, the Zodiacs decided that they were each stepping over boundaries that they should never cross. They were each fighting over their adoptions, mad at each other. Their property confused, they simply never knew who owned what. They called another meeting, this time creating the idea of the day of birth determining the human's Zodiac. They saw this as good, and all was well once more. However, as mentioned before, they are corrupt Gods. They each claimed that their children were the best; Virgo obviously had the most mentally capable children, but Scorpio's children were strong-willed and efficient. Cancer's children were empathetic and emotional, and so on. They decided that the only way to settle this argument was a fight to the death between chosen representatives of each star sign. They made an executive document detailing this new order: A child will be blessed by their Zodiac to be a representative in war. A weapon will be given to them, and they will be required to strike down every other blessed child with said weapon. Only one child is allowed to be chosen by a Zodiac, and only one weapon (or set of weapons, like dual-wielding daggers) is allowed to be given to a child. If a winner is not chosen within a month, then all current representatives will be killed and new representatives will be chosen. This will be repeated until a winner is chosen. ("Child" in this context is only meant as the child of a zodiac sign, not age. They could pick a ninety year old senior citizen and it would be their "child.") And that's where our characters come in. One way or another, you have been chosen by your Zodiac for this competition, and are visited by them in a heavenly dream, explained the rules of the game in a most surreal way, and bam, you're now targeted by eleven other people for murder. The twelve person war has begun. The current list of weapons is here. Be sure to check it out. So would anyone be interested?
