For years I, a humble amateur maker of cartoons on youtube, have told stories. I have planned huge animation movies that in the end were never made. They were also not developed enough most of the time, and now I want to focus on the story about dragons I wanted to tell since I was twelve. The story was meant to be told in segments, and each one would be an animation or cartoon set to a song by Dragonforce, because their songs were so epic and fitting I couldn't pick any other form of musical awesomeness. Let me break down each story for you...
Aaron's beginning introduces the main character, Aaron, as he begins his journey. He has sandy brown hair and fair skin, and an obvious thirst for adventure and glory. The whole video was planned to have the whole thing set to the song Through the Fire and Flames, as it is what brought me and many other people to the band Dragonforce. The song was like their most popular and most well-known for a small band, so naturally it seemed perfect. Aaron is seen walking down a dirt path when he comes upon a piece of paper with a depiction of a legendary golden city called the Skylands. Apparently, it is enough to drive him into his adventure. He dons copper and leather armor and a low-quality sword, as it's all he's got, and leaves his family to search for the Skylands. He then practices his sword skills on vicious animals (namely a boars, wolves and a grizzly bear) in the forest for the rest of the video. He reaches a local town by the end of it, probably toting some animal pelts as he walks into the tavern to search for companions for his journey...
The Team Comes Together
The next video was planned to have Prepare for War set to it, as it had the right tune and it had the right title, obviously. The next scenario is where Aaron is in a tavern, just like last time, and meets a proud warrior who is somewhat full of himself. He calls himself Windsor, and has pale grey hair despite his young appearance. He also has fair skin and wears light-weight armor adorned with feathers. Windsor is shown to have a small, feathery-winged and pale blue dragoness that can carry one passenger out back behind the tavern. The female dragon's name is Cloud. The two shake hands and a bond is made, before a black-haired, fiery-eyed and muscular young man is spotted tending to a red fire dragon. He looks over and says he wants to come along. The black-haired man's name appears to be Tyson, and he calls his dragon Magnus. As the video goes on, they meet several others, particularly a forest-dweller named Sonya and her small green dragon Bugwing, a serious guy clad in bearskin and wolf pelts named Faldron and his ice dragon Frostfire, and a spunky sailor girl named Greya and her aquatic dragon Finn.
The False Skylands
This one is set to one of the first Dragonforce songs I ever heard, which is called Fury of the Storm. This one skips ahead in the adventure, for you see I did not have any more ideas for it to go in between, so this one may be confusing. Aaron, through the aforementioned lack of ideas, has golden dragon wings, golden armor and a mighty sword to help him reach a number of enemies that he dispatches quickly and easily. The whole video is just him slaying hundreds of airborne enemies with combo moves. He and his companions then find a golden city, which appears to be the skylands, but it is a ghost town. No one is around. Not long after stepping into the “Skylands”, everything changes. The walls crumble, the gold melts away to show buildings made of black and purple bricks, and the sky grows dark. Hordes of demons appear, and it ends with them readying their swords and preparing for battle.
The Demon King Comes
This one was planned to have Valley of the Damned set to it. The song spoke of a dark lord, and that fit perfectly for a villain to show up and hinder the group. This is one of my favorite Dragonforce songs. It shows the group during their journey, fighting a horde of demons in the shattered false Skylands from the last video. There is a great and dark demon lord watching the whole thing, and eventually they fight said demon lord. The demon lord has to be at least 10-15 feet high, and it takes a lot to bring him down. So much that, in the process, Faldron’s dragon Frostfire actually sacrifices himself to slay the demon lord. As Faldron mourns the loss of his best friend, everyone sets up a burial for him on a cold, freezing mountain.
This one is the final video I planned so far, and is set to Black Winter Night. When Faldron gets a psychic signal from his supposedly dead dragon, he goes on a journey to the freezing mountain that he was buried on. Faldron goes through many tasks just to reach hid beloved friend Frostfire, and eventually meets up with him. He finds that the grave has been dug up, and that his dragon is weak and dying. He revives his dragon with constant care over the course of a few weeks, and the video ends somewhere around him reuniting with his friends.
I want to relive and develop this journey in roleplay. What do you guys think? Does it seem doable?
