Ok so I feel no help is gonna happen since this discussion section of this place is as dead as...I don’t have a comparison! Ahem! So I’ve been brainstorming my own Kamen rider idea. I’ve been working on two versions of it. The first version is to say close to being finished to say? This is that version
Kamen Rider Arthur Version 1 Motif:Arthurian Legend/Magic/Knights
Plot: in another world known as Avalon, A war waged against two sides, the kingdom of Camelot and the Fae. Fighting to acquire a powerful magic blade known as Excalibur. Through the crossfire of this war the blade was shattered and sent across dimensions to earth and scattered itself over Japan. A man named Ryōta then finds one of this shards of Excalibur, by picking it up he has no idea what he is in for.
Version 1 Primary Rider:Kamen Rider Arthur/Ryōta Mitsuaki
Ryōta is 19 and works at a tabletop game store and lives in a rented apartment with a friend. He finds a shard of Excalibur and this causes him to end up encountering Merlin, a powerful wizard that is the teacher of King Arthur. He is the one that gave Ryōta the Shard driver, created via Merlin's magic and the shard of Excalibur.
Version 1 Secondary Rider:Kamen Rider Lancelot/Akihito Moto
Akihito Moto is a 17 year old highschooler that has knowledge about different legends and myths because they interest him. He also found a shard of Excalibur as well, casugin Merlin and Ryōta to search for him. He in the beginning gave them the Excalibur shard but he eventually started aiding them as Kamen Rider Lancelot with his own Shard driver.
Version 1 Tertiary Rider: Kamen Rider Mordred
Blank that’s wants to collect the shards of Excalibur for himself for neither side
Merlin was sent to Japan to cellect the shards of Excalibur by King Arthur, he decided to get help from Ryōta and gave him the ability to transform into Kamen Rider Arthur. Eventually he reveals his own rider form called Kamen Rider Merlin.
The Fae are a group of mystical beings that are lead by Morgan, the Fae queen. They want Excalibur so they can bring destruction and chaos to Avalon.
That versions motif is Arthurian legend/magic/knights. The second version I’ve been thinking up at first was Arthurian legend/magic/tabletop rpgs. But now Ive changed it too Arthurian legend or culture heroes/tabletop rpgs. My problem is that I’m trying to figure out a gimmick for it. I the ones I thought up were cards or dice, or both at the same time! So I’m asking you people how can I make that work?
Edit: by the way culture heroes are a mythological hero specific to Myth or religion or culture or etc. also the whole idea for this is spurred by the fact some weeks ago I re watched a Netflix series called tales of Arcadia before watching the newest one in that series. So the whole Arthurian legend inspiration came from that.
