Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Good morning everyone! I now have two friends who wrote their own screenplay, filmed their own movie, and have won a crap-ton of awards for it, so I've decided to finally get around to writing the screenplay I've had in my head for six years or so.
The easiest way to describe is as a sci-fi thriller modern retelling of "The Prodigal Son". All of the main characters have significant biblical names that provide some clues if you are well-versed in bible studies, such as Dr. Logos and Sam Yazza.
Ironically, I'm NOT well-versed in bible studies. All of the significant names have come from googling alternate names for key biblical figures. But now I'm stuck with the naming of one character: He's a priest in his sixties, in modern-day America. He takes in the wounded main character, who is suffering from amnesia after a brain injury, and gets him back on his feet, giving him a place to stay and a job. The priest becomes his number one ally in the main character's efforts to figure out who he used to be. When the main character begins to realize he has certain super powers (such as walking on water and healing the dying), the priest begins to believe the man could be God (he's wrong). The Priest ultimately dies of a heart attack.
Is there any biblical character that this sounds anything like? Maybe an ally of Jesus or healer of the sick or anything like that?
