Its good, but does not really provide a city image in the manner that the whole City Image thread seems to request. A clear visual description should have started this off, and then led to other details.
I could see some tragic hero barrelling into the close ranks of his enemy, the sky heavy and brooding. He is being battled, overwhelmed by numbers even with the booms of the boots. Then the main villain closes with him and defeats the hero. As he yanks his serrated blade out of the dying hero, he notices the shiny boots.
The next moment, a lightning bolt crashes down, killing hero, villain, and many others nearby. The event is viewed as divine intervention by the Hero's allies, inspiring them to surge forth and route the enemy. Go to Comment
For some reason I'm reminded of the sax player on the simpsons, and the owl on sesame street :) Maybe just the sax, but the idea of the laid back street musician being something more, like an urban Beorn appeals to me. Go to Comment
A well crafted character. A major plot could be a change of upper management to people with 'ultramodern' design preferences and want to remove the trees from the atrium to replace them with ugly modern art :) Go to Comment
