Let's get back to the pilot. I decided not to offer you a treatment in full form but this blog post will quote the treatment many times. What is Portal of Glory?
POG premise from treatment:
Portal of Glory is a one-hour fantasy/adventure that follows the lives of Heroes, superhuman warriors, in service to the Gods of Force and Energy, the Goddess of Light, and the God of Forgiveness, during a four-thousand-year-long War of Gods on the planet Astan.
How did planet Astan form? Who created it? What are the current circumstances? The following paragraphs from the treatment reveal answers to all questions above and many more.
In this supernatural, polytheistic world, three Gods-Bram, God of Force and Energy; Arma, Goddess of Light; and Orkaz, God of Forgiveness-decided to create a garden planet, Astan, where their children would grow up. Per the Gods' personal contracts, Khaar, son of Bram, and Anei, daughter of Arma, were promised to each other. However, during their time on Astan, Anei fell for Tiyer, son of Orkaz. Soon, both Anei and Tiyer died under suspicious circumstances. Arma and Orkaz placed the blame on Khaar, who fled for the mountains up north but eventually fell to the wrath of the furious Gods. His death set Arma and Orkaz against Bram and caused the War of Gods that turned Astan from a garden planet into an atrocious war zone.
To preserve the memories of their beloved children, the Gods established cities, Khaar and Anei's City of Light. In addition, the Gods sent their advisors, known as Immortals, to organize the two cities and recruit Heroes, supernatural warriors, to lead their armies.
Portal of Glory starts 4,365 years into the War of Gods. The Council of Khaar, under foggy circumstances, has recently elected Farmar, an aggressive, bellicose Immortal, as their president. Farmar promises Bram, God of Force, that Khaar has finally found a Hero capable of conquering the City of Light... I will stop here.
This should be enough for the overall circumstances on Astan. There is another important aspect in this fantasy series I'd like to mention. That aspect are the myths of Astan that are collectively known as Legends of Astan. These legends play very important role in the series. Astan has got a lot of myths. Majority has never confirmed to be true, but that doesn't mean they are a lie or speculation. There are three principal myths.
MYTH OF ANGELS
The Myth of Angels is a myth within the Legends of Astan that says a Hero of Darkness who collects the support of all eleven Immortals within the Council of Khaar can be stopped only by an Angel, or a group of Angels, that will protect a deserving Hero from the City of Light.
The Black Blade is a myth within the Legends of Astan that says the location of a magical sword known as the Black Blade will be revealed to a deserving Hero of Darkness. The Hero of Darkness who successfully pulls the sword from the ground will become unstoppable.
MYTH OF RAVENS
The Myth of Ravens is a myth within the Legends of Astan that says twelve warriors from the Black Mountains protected a nest containing the eggs of a Royal Raven from attackers. All twelve warriors died fending off the attackers, but when the eggs hatched sometime later, instead of ravens, twelve warriors with demigod abilities were born. They are known as the Mythical Guard of Royal Ravens. The guard will support a Hero who keeps the people of the Black Mountains united, and that Hero cannot lose a battle when defending the Black Mountains.
From all files I have offered you in regards to POG there is one important that is missing. That is info about major Heros from the Anei's City of Light. One of these Heroes, together with Dalain and Uleema (both from Khaar,) is the character created before I even had an idea of the series. Her name is Caitlin. If you read the pilot, you'll realize her importance.
*important note. I will offer a preview, about 56 pages, but I will not include the end of the pilot. 56 pages are enough for you to see if you'd like something like this or not.
*important note 2. I wrote the pilot in screenwriting software. When I transfer the file to google docs, google "plays" with my formatting. It's nothing major, but it is still unfortunate. I am unable to fix this. You will see pages cut off the dialogue from time to time. Hopefully nothing else.
