STORY IDEA #245: Guards of the Gate

A new story idea every single day.

Ideas can be shit, detailed, loose, tight, scenario-based, character-based, or could just be a single line of dialogue which might later unfurl itself into a glorious tendril of butt-tickling wonder-magic … or something.

Stole this concept from @ryanklindsay.

#245: Guards of the Gate.

Gog and Magog were the protectors of the Top-World. In a sense. They've been placed there to stop people from going between the London Particular and the Top-World.

Gog and Magog are the giant protectors of the Top-World. In a sense. They've been at the walls of the Particular for centuries. They've been placed there to stop travellers going between the London Particular and the Top-World.

Gog and Magog stand 10-foot tall, have flesh made of clay, weapons made of rust, and are incredibly stupid. Neither of them like puzzles. In fact, Gog once punched a man's head off because he asked for his help with a Sudoku.
But Magog has been killed. Gog is missing. And the gates are opening once again.
