Hello, everyone.  This is from the author of the Ascension Trilogy (Apotheosis, Apocryphos, and Apostasy…  Yes, I know.  Not my best work.  But, it was fun, and I enjoyed the challenge of building my own world from the ground up.  Now, I'm planning another book…  Maybe a series, depending on how much inspiration I get.

Let me start with a little history lesson.  It is believed that somewhere between 69,000 and 77,000 years ago, there may have been something called the Toba Catastrophe (also known as the Toba Extinction).  Now, it's just a theory, but it's largely posited that the Toba Catastrophe was a supervolcanic eruption.  It may well have been one of the largest volcanic eruptions in history, and it could easily have wiped out 90% or more of the world's population at the time.

This led to a genetic bottleneck, which is why there is a relative lack of genetic diversity in today's world.  69,000 to 77,000 years ago, there were more types of intelligent hominids than just Homo Sapiens.  But, Homo Sapiens were the ones who survived the Toba Extinction, and as such, we're the ones that live on today.  

Now, away from theoretical history, and onto pure fiction.  What if the Toba Extinction never happened? It's largely believed that it did.  But, in a fictional universe where 90% of the world's population wasn't eradicated 72,000 years ago, perhaps humanity would have evolved past what it is even today.

What if minor gifts have popped up in humans, and now, between 8-10% of the human population has something called Numina (plural: Numinae).  Some Numinae are psychic (psychic empathy, aura reading, telepathy).  Some are physiological (superhuman strength, endurance, speed, intelligence etc).  Some defy absolute classification.  Such numinae are difficult to label, such as a decreased need for sustenance (decreased need for food, water, sleep, or a combination of the three.)

Usually, a human with a numina (called numinists) have only one such gift, though a rare few may have one that crosses the line between psychic and physiological.  These gifts are always minor, and are rarely what one would consider "gamebreaking".

The reason I'm mentioning this is because, although I have this idea, I would invite any ideas that others have for the story.  If anyone has any ideas that I should include in my story, I would appreciate them.  Thank you.

Okay... I'm 26 years old, and am deeply interested in fanfiction, vampires, werewolves and zombies (not weird ass sparkly shit Vampire wannabes), writing, Dungeons and Dragons. Ladies, I'm single, as if any more needs to be said. I also like taking pictures, although I'm not that great at it, my photos are passable.
I like people who are polite and respectful, and although rude people annoy me, I can handle them. It's stupid people and arrogant people who treat others like they're stupid that really piss me off. I'm not aggressive or confrontational (for the most part) and I generally expect others to be the same way towards me. If not, I don't have time for you. I get enough jerks at my job. I don't need them on my free time as well.
