Welcome to The Unusual Suspects, a fictional writing experiment which mimics an RPG style game in the sense that multiple characters are featured, interacting within a fictional world built by the author.
This is a not-so-standard Chosen One/Quest Narrative. The scene is this:
Maior Dahl is struggling to rebuild after a truce was struck with the neighboring country of Durro, ending over a decade of war. Now, the countryside is in ruins and as refugees flee to the capital city of Rimbar, new problems arise. Famine and disease are widespread, causing tensions to rise amongst the poor while the wealthy continue to live in luxury. Revolt seems certain, but when whispers of a powerful curse begin to surface the answer to their troubles may come from an unexpected place.
Will an ancient prophesy guide five unlikely heroes to victory, or will Maior Dahl fall?
