Y’know I had an idea for a story that I thought would be fun.
A world in which the position of ‘god’ is inherited. Each subsequent god is a hero who has received the adulation of the people and is meant to reign with a tenure before a new hero comes about. It’s a heavy work load with the reward being a long vacation/retirement to the Heavenly realm. The MC is the god of this particular world, a former hero, whose tenure has gone on for way too long. The subsequent heroes died off before being able to complete their journeys. He’s getting fed up with all this…he’s been working himself to the bone and finally he decides to do something about it. He’s going to go down there and make sure the hero makes it this time so he can finally get his due. Reborn with his prior memories as the childhood friend of the hero or brother(or something like that). But…this hero…can you really call him a hero? and why did the rest die off?
It’s a pretty rough idea but I think it’d make for an entertaining tale. I know every translator and their brother tries to write an original…which is why I’ve been hesitating to try. If it sounds like an interesting concept, leave a comment. I don’t know if I can do it justice but I’m thinking about giving it a shot.
Anyways Here’s a video
