Pros of focusing a story around friendship instead of romance

the-right-writing:

  • Less danger of writing awful purple prose
  • Friends can survive without constantly being around each other
  • Friendships are really cute
  • It’s easier to write healthy friendships
  • Somebody can be friends with two people without it turning into an annoying “friendship triangle”
  • Positive female-female friendships are underrepresented
  • Female-male friendships without romantic undertones are underrepresented outside of children’s books
  • Most people don’t collapse into irrational heaps of strong emotions whenever they see their friends, which makes it way easier to fight off attacking ninjas
  • More stories about online friends would be nice
  • Friends don’t have to be conventionally attractive in order to sell books
  • Did I mention the cuteness factor?

Human—->Mage—->Goodwill

Moon Elf—->Alchemist—->Cunning

Sun Elf—->Thief—->Rage

Dwarf—->Warrior—->Cunning

Kaelik—->Brawler—->Goodwill

Lith—->Archer—->Rage

That’s pretty much what I am thinking I’m going to do with those options once the game is released. I love how everything seems to conflict with one another to a certain degree.

"As God is my witness, as God is my witness they’re not going to lick me! I’m going to live through this and when it’s all over, I’ll never be hungry again! No, nor any of my folk. If I have to lie, steal, cheat or kill. As God is my witness, I’ll never be hungry again!"
