So my upcoming adventure "The Legend of the Red Star" is shaping up to be a monster of the week type story, but what else can I do (besides character development) to make it something that will actually be read?
My party looks like this:
Ash--the titular red star, he is the "warrior" of the group (although you can argue he is a red mage because he can also cast magic through his flute, Utahime) He mainly travels to help those in need, but when he learns of the Grand Emperor's plot to summon an evil dragon, he begins encountering more and more monsters)
Kiyama--a new character made specifically for the story, she is a minstrel that is skilled with a bow, so she plays a "ranger" role. She came with Ash in hopes she can find her missing father and hopefully bring him home alive
Dawn: a miko, or priestess, she plays the "mage" role, since magic is a spiritual discipline in my created world of Kinmura, where this is set. She came with Ash both out of gratitude for his saving her, and a desire to see the Grand Temple of Arceus (the holiest site in Kinmura)
