Day Run potential-maybe-not-quite-sequel idea
Well, I've given the idea a bit of thought, and I think it's time I presented the general idea to the public.
Day Run ended last month. During the finale, we learned that what Lyxek really wanted was immortality. Due to numerous circumstances, he failed in obtaining that, and Ruaki was, for lack of a better term, destroyed.
Well, what if in an alternate universe, Lyxek succeeded in gaining control of Ruaki? On top of that, what if, upon gaining control, Lyxek managed to become immortal--along with every other living being.
Yeah, you heard that right. In this potential alternate universe sequel, Lyxek succeeded in his plans. He became immortal. At the same time, he inadvertently made everyone in the universe immortal, as well. The entire player base would be standard characters--immortal characters, a la Baccano! immortality. You could not die, but you could still be injured. Your injuries would gradually heal themselves, but it would take time.
Your characters would be trapped in a never-ending cycle of violence and insanity, doomed to forever fight one another in the sad, hopeless hope that one day, Lyxek may decide to undo the curse that he has placed upon them.
As far as plot goes, I haven't gotten that far, but I think the concept could be made into something very interesting. What do you think, given this bare-bones information?
