Weekend writer’s block

Weekend writer's block
I haven’t done a weekend writer’s block yet this year but I decided that I want to regularly post again on Fridays and weekend writer’s blocks is one of the things you can expect because they are so much to fun create.
If you don’t know what my weekend writer blocks are then let me explain quickly.
I know that a lot of writers don’t get chance to write throughout the week so I want to challenge you to write on the weekend. The problem is when you don’t have any inspiration.
So I’m sharing some of my original ideas to see if they inspire anyone to write.
You are allowed to take the idea as it is or bend it to fit your liking better because a lot of my weekend writer’s blocks are half thought out ideas that I want to go give further thought myself.

This week I want to share a little idea for a magic system I have.

Each person has a unique symbol on a common place such as the palm of their hand or something.
When they give their support to someone the mark is duplicated onto that person’s skin so that their support is visible.

I’m thinking that they need the support of others to advance as a magician so the first level has one or two other markings on them. The middle class has all their friends and families marks on their arms and backs.
Then you get the grand masters whose skin is nearly hidden beneath the markings of everyone they are responsible for.

Professors with the markings of every student they train.
Doctors with all the markings of people whose lives they’ve saved.
Captains with all the markings of the people who serve beneath them.
Lastly I think of Kings with the markings of important people and servants alike.

If you are going to be using this idea please  let me know. I would love to hear what you think about it.

Weekend writer’s block. (inspiration for desperate times)

I can’t decide if this week is plot or world building but either way here it is.Untitled

For the past few generations the king would always have at least two children.
The one to be heir to the throne and the other to inherit the magic in the royal blood line. Just to help you see what I’m seeing the royal with magic is more often than not the strongest magic wielder in the kingdom.
This sounds pretty unsafe because what if the one with the magic tries to overthrow the sibling?

To answer that question, there will be very little point in killing your sibling if you are the one with the magic because none of the past royal magic wielders has even survived to see manhood/ womanhood.
Their power is like a beacon to all sort of foul creatures.
They are attacked daily and on top of that because of their great power they are sent into battle at an early age of ten.
They are forced to fight their entire life through and die pretty young.
To keep them alive a little longer they are normally given guards. Strong powerful magic wielders who are willing to die for them.

What do you think a story would look like from the point of view of one of these guards?
