All right, sportsfans, it's time to start pulling everything together.
We need several folks to take stabs at synthesizing what we've done here and coming up with a way to bring it all into one story.
What I don't
want you to do is try to take every single thing we've talked about and shoehorn it into a storyline. Well, if you want to do that, you can. Maybe that's the best way to go.
But what I think I do
want you to do is pull together your favorite elements, plot points, characters, races, and the rest, and collate it all into a coherent synopsis.
Based on the cool things we've discussed so far (adding, perhaps, some new cool things that occur to you as you do this synthesizing), what would be the ultimate story we could tell here?
Though this is in the plots sub-forum I do not mean to limit this to a discussion of plot elements. Be sure to include what you think are the coolest universe innovations, character sketches, and use of Christianity in our story inklings so far.
So please take a shot at boiling this all down into a good synopsis.

to learn how to focus your thoughts and create a good synopsis for us.
Let's get pointed toward a working synopsis.
