2.Writing Prompts Contest #5 - Evolved Beasts in Another World
Reincarnating to become a beast capable of evolving in another world
Many main characters will reincarnate to another world and receive all sorts of miracles along with meeting many new friends.
However, our main character this time has become a wild beast.
However, he will become a wild beast who’s capable of continuously evolving…
Two main topics: “Beast” and “Evolution”
In this alternate world, humans are the hunters while beasts are the hunted. Even the strongest dragons will commonly be hunted down by human knights, priests, and mages.
Here, our main character, someone from the modern day, shall reincarnate into a lizard, or a wolf, or a spider, or a shark… at any rate, he shall reincarnate into a beast rather than a human.
After this beast gets taken over by a human soul, he shall not only have human intelligence, he’ll even understand how to evolve…
How to evolve?
There’s countless possibilities out there for evolution. Feel free to make your own setting. The easiest way is perhaps to give the main character an Evolution System, such as in an MMORPG game. Simply slaying other beasts could let him obtain experience points and keep leveling up and evolving.
Of course, you could use some setting apart from a system as well. For instance, perhaps powerful beasts will all have magic cores inside their bodies. Devouring these magic cores could be a way of powering up for evolution. And, the color of the magic cores represent how powerful a beast is.
Or, perhaps your main character’s beast has a dragon’s bloodline. If he continuously eats highly nutritious foods, he’ll be able to evolve into a powerful dragon.
There’s countless appealing methods of evolution out there. There’s no need to limit your imagination or the main character. At any rate, he shall evolve by some method to become the most powerful creature in this alternate world!
Weak beasts are destined to be slaughtered. Only the powerful will survive.
Extension: Inject your own personal touch and ideas
What if a modern day person suddenly becomes a wild beast? He’ll likely have zero survival skills and will be afflicted by starvation and the weather. The other beasts will also view him as potential prey. How shall he escape from danger and survive?
After evolving into a powerful animal, how will this beast who possesses a human soul treat the conflict between humans and beasts? Will he stand with the beasts, with the humans, or simply live only for himself?
Although “Evolution” is the main topic of this writing prompt, we encourage you all to delve even deeper into this topic and put your own touch upon this topic, so that you can bring another world to life!
