Hello everyone. This is my first idea that I'm sharing with the community. Also, this project will be my first vn as well. I fully intend to use this idea, but I did not have enough show of work as of yet to put it on the main work in progress forum. I have descriptions of some characters and some pieces of artwork as well. The story has (at the time of this post 3,000 words) and will be much longer than I thought it would be. Might have to break the general idea into different arcs or stories.
Title: Crystal Spirits
Genre: Fantasy, comedy, scifi aspects, romance (perhaps).
Rating: 13+ (May change in future)
Platform: PC, Free (Hopefully)Plot (Up to Date):
Over one hundred years has passed since the Mayans very wrong prediction. Humanity did not end itself through biological warfare nor did zombies rise from their graves to slay the living. About the only things that changed was the lost magic and races made themselves known much more openly. In a small city lives Cassandra Holloway, a teenager who has been more or less sheltered from the paranormal and their gaze all of her life. That all changed when her grandfather Ziv Daiku requests her presence in Ranceford, California. With her dreams haunted by a field of beings sealed within stone and crystal, and her waking life more confusing given her new 'life and title', her only constants are unfortunately the insane (and evil) grim reaper she freed and the book she was entrusted with. Soon after her grandfather vanishes, even stranger things begin to happen. The biggest problem? Several people are requesting her assistance in "Matters of Great Importance" and she knows nothing about the responsibilities she was given.
Will you help her along with the investigations or help the 'villains'? How will you manage the hectic group of friends while attending a even more odd high school? Is there romance in store for you? And what is with the bead chain that Ziv gave you for your birthday?!

Saying: "Piss me off and I'll send my minions after you."Current Status:
3,000 words. Two character artwork, no programming and such. Right now, I'm looking for inspiration and to see if anyone would be interested in something like this. It's not like the traditional VN (or that GxB so far) and I'm aiming for some rpg elements thrown in.What I hope to Learn:
I'm a total newbie to vn making (and vn in general) so any advice would be nice. I don't know much about music or artwork. I'm a writer though I am also learning coding. I would love to bounce around ideas with others. I DO realize this is a very tough job ahead for me, especially for being a new vn creator. I just can't see her story (or stories) otherwise.Opening Question:
Does the overall plot seem sound to you? Ending Notes:
I will put up basic known characters and descriptions today or tomorrow on here and my blog. I edited this post enough for the moment.
