Hey I'm not sure, but I remember there was one of these for characters instead of plot. Correct me if I'm wrong, but is there and where do I find it? I'm not sure what to look up. Well since I can't find it for now and I already written all this up, I might as well post it and you can correct me later.
During my obsession with back stories I came up with one for a character in a shounen Serious Business
MMORPG setting. Though I don't have enough ideas to make an MMORPG story that could stand out enough from a few others.
Anyway, my idea is a character who met a friend of his online and faced many challenges together. They even started a guild together that grew quite successful, though the character's friend was the leader. However one day their friend is just no longer on for whatever reason IRL and by the rule of the system, the guild leader is needed to fully manage the resources to keep the guild growing strong. So the other members slowly left seeking a guild that hadn't become so limited. But the character himself stayed for months and even years until he became a badass one man guild
being able to solo other dungeons and most other guilds in Gv G
However, you can only go so far being the only one left in the guild but he just can't let it go. He stayed loyal
to his friend with just the slightest chance he'll return. Remembering all the fun they had and everything their guild has achieved, he didn't want it all to end. I haven't worked out yet if he eventually moves on though, or how he could do it. But it's an idea and also an idea I would really love to see done in a story. So good luck!
