Unless the druids all go to war with the sorcerers: not likely. Now on Pyrosia... there some of the gods could plot to try to overthrow Elder God Tarrin, introducing a whole bunch of new characters and maybe featuring Jasana's big mistake...
Actually, the main thrust of Legacy wasn't going to be the druids against the Sorcerers or any attempt by the gods to banish Tarrin, the plot would revolve around the Wikuni getting embroiled in a war against magicians who feared their technology.
Jasana was the main villain in the story in that she was leading a group of Druids, Sorcerers, and Wizards in the attacks against Wikuna, and the event for which Eron had been born was to be written in as the climax of the story, when Jasana finally met her reckoning...in her own father, when her duplicity was finally uncovered and the katzh-dashi was forced to put a stop to it directly. And the only one that could stop Jasana is Tarrin.
Jasana could have destroyed the world, but the reason Tarrin wasn't told about how it was to come about was because he is the one that pushes her to that point.
It seemed a great idea for a story, but like I said, when I started writing chapter 2 and I introduced Tarrin in a cameo role (he showed up to fix Amara's necklace), it just didn't feel right. And so, I let the story drop, re-engineered the main concept of the story, and applied it to the Walker series.
I guess since it took me some 18 years to write the Sennadar and Pyrosian stories, I just don't have the heart to go back there. It's almost like a holy place now, an inviolate sanctuary whose threshold I must not cross.
Just another guy from the shallow end of the gene pool.
