Hello! I am looking for one person to help me bring my graphic novel idea to life. With your help we can create something wonderful. Below will be an info dump, and obviously I am free to answer any other questions.
It's called Tiers of the People. The people live in this HUGE, rising structure called Olympus(basically whole cities stacked on top of one another, with most levels being underground). These levels are called Tiers, and depending on what Tier you live on...you may not be able to leave.
GLORY: This is where the elite of society live. They're perfect. They have everything. But are they truly happy?
BUSINESS: This is where all the shops, offices, restaurants, etc. are for those living in GLORY. Most jobs in this sector are taken by AI(kinds like the people who made up the Westworld world.)
INDUSTRY: This is the factory Tier, where everything is made. Those who work in factories also live here. Those who oversee production are called Taskmasters.
NAMELESS: This is where the Black Merchants Guild operate out of. It's also neutral ground. Anyone, unless they are from GARBAGE may visit. It's considered seedy. There are drugs. Prostitutes. Fake goods. Stolen goods. If you've seen Altered Carbon, it very much looks like the main street where Poe's hotel was.
GARBAGE: Where all of the garbage from all the Tiers go. People live here, but their lives are miserable and they have very short lifespans. Mutant dogs live here. Teenagers from GLORY sometimes come and hunt those living here for fun.
PRISON: This is where they send criminals of all sorts.
If you live in GLORY, you are free to visit any Tier you please. It you live in INDUSTRY, you are free to visit anyone Tier you please. Those in the Guild may go wherever they please, but may only visit Glory if they are invited. Those who live in the GARBAGE may never leave their home.
The story follows Harlow Alexander, a Troublemaker for the Guild, and ________. _______ lived in GLORY, working for their police department. He was sent to PRISON after being accused and found guilty of murdering the wife of the man his wife was sleeping with. He didn't kill her, though. Harlow did, because she was paid to do so. So now, she's doing everything she can to make it right; to make things right, without letting him know what she's done.
The Black Merchants Guild will do whatever they're asked, as long as the price is right. Need to secretly purchase a weapon? They have everything you could possibly want. Want someone murdered? They'll do it, for a handsome fee. Need protection? They can do that, too. There are different titles within the Guild, and they tell Outsiders(those not in the Guild) what someone is willing to do.
Troublemaker = They'll take any job
Finders = They only steal or recover things that have been lost/stolen
Protectors = They only serve as body guards(most work for those living in GLORY)
Heathens = They only take a job it it involves them taking someone's life, which means their services are EXPENSIVE(most work for those living in GLORY
There are also tons of different drugs in this world, and tons of drug dens in NAMELESS
This RP will be fade to black only, and I will not budge on that.
