This is a quick cover to a story I made to entertain my original story idea I had for a comic/manga after my friend said she was doing a series of short comics, but I'm more of a long story kinda person.
also I wanted something to give my characters Harvey and Kaden some kind of a background.
I haven't worked out anything technical yet, but in general, there are these things called "the hell rounds" which is basically an underground/ illegal, (I havent really pinpointed a reason why its illegal yet) virtual fist fight arena which has one vs one, team battles, or derby rounds which people fight in to make money (haven't really pinpointed how proceeds are made, whether through betting or a general payout of some kind) , and the more rounds fighters last before either getting knocked out or bow out, the more money they make. Although its illegal, cops don't care because its a small town and everybody knows everyone and lets things slide. The hell rounds are virtual in the sense where they accompany the real world, but the arena activates artificial booster and stat technology kept in "booster costumes" available for fighters to buy to boost either their stats (like speed, power, etc...) or gives them general unique battle boosters (like element assists IE fire or water powers) so they have more than just their firsts to work with, but more expensive costumes call for more powerful boosters or stats.
Anyway, Harvey is the younger brother to Kaden, and they are kinda poor after they father died and their mother was plunged into a bad situation of having no income while having two teenage boys, and not working for years and thus having no work experience thus struggling to get hired. After looking for work for a while, she falls ill (haven't pinpointed of what yet...) and their family is put to a complete financial standstill and bills piling up. After attempting to get jobs themselves and failing miserably and getting shot down at each interview, Its then when Harvey and Kaden desperately put their money together to buy two basic virtual booster costumes to compete in the hell rounds to pay the bills. Harvey get s a suit based off of a wolf and boosts his speed, jump strength, and reflexes, while Kaden attains a costume that has duo element assists; fire for one hand and ice on the other, as well as fire hair that flares up when hes mad or blushing.
Well that's the general point. I may start actually writing/ making the first volume soon- or at least do something anyway. and id like to point out that this story and this concept belong to me and I don't want it replicated or plagiarized- so its copyright of me (Craig Delean/Stanglass/mimibert) as of 2015-09-17. I do this because I have had recent problems with art theft and am trying to make sure everything is done so I can share my idea, but also keep it safe
