SEQUENCE ONE :: Synopsis
Richard, Kahlan, Zedd and Cara are tasked with stopping a deadly plague, created by the darkest magics which is rapidly spreading throughout all the world. When the Emperor of the Imperial Order invokes a prophecy that will bring a fate of pain, betrayal and death to the Seeker of Truth and the Mother Confessor, they must sacrifice everything they believe in to get their world back. Meanwhile, when Cara is critically injured by Emperor Jagang, the group stumbles across another member of the Rahl bloodline -- Richard's half brother, Drefan, who claims to be a healer, but what are his true motives?
(portrayed by Craig Horner)
After sealing the rift which separates the Underworld and the Land of the Living, Richard focuses on his duties as the Seeker of Truth, as well as the love of his life, the Mother Confessor, Kahlan Amnell. However, when the Emperor of the Imperial Order spreads a magic-made plague throughout the land of the living, and curses him and Kahlan to a fate far worse than death, he must give up everything he cares about to save the world from tearing itself inside out.
(portrayed by Bridget Regan)
Kahlan Amnell, the Mother Confessor, is faced with the sacrifice of a lifetime, as she discovers the only way to save the man she loves, along with the rest of the world, is to betray him, fulfilling the long-awaited prophecy. But will she be able to let go of Richard for the greater good?
(portrayed by Tabrett Bethell)
Cara Mason, the Mord'Sith loyal to Richard Rahl, has one job to do; protect him at all cost. But when that job becomes impossible for her, for the first time, she is vulnerable and weak, which leads her down a deep path toward depression. But all that changes once she is miraculously healed by the likes of another member of the Rahl Bloodline -- Drefen.
Zeddicus Zu'l Zorander
(portrayed by Bruce Spence)
Zeddicus Zu'l Zorander, Wizard of the First Order must team up with the Sisters of the Light, in order to combat the plague that's been roaring across the lands, but will he really be able to trust them?

Drefan Rahl, Richard's half-brother, comes to the group's aid when Cara is fatally injured by Emperor Jagang, but even though this act of kindness has gained him favor, is he truly as noble and innocent as he says he is?
(portrayed by Chow Yun Fat)
Jagang, Emperor of the Imperial Order, and loyal follower of the Keeper, has spread a plague across the Midlands and creates a prophecy that will lead to the downfall of the only people that can stop him -- The Seeker of Truth, and the Mother Confessor. Jagang is selfish, cruel and motivated, but his pride may get the best of him in the end.

SEQUENCE ONE :: EPISODE GUIDE (12 Episodes)
(to be posted)
Please note that this pitch is not complete. More details in regards to the plot, characters, as well as the full episode guide for sequence one will be on its way, soon!
So, I know you all were not expecting this. I sure as hell wasn't, but I was bored tonight and I've been missing the crap out of this show lately, so I said - "Why can't I just develop a continuation; Webisode style?" This is the result of that, obviously.
Season three will be very loosely based on "Temple of the Winds," which is a book in the "Sword of Truth" franchise. I wanted to have the same grounding from the book, but I'm not limited to just those storylines, like the series, I will be writing more original plots than ones taken from the novels.
With this webisode format, I'm hoping I can get the episodes done substantially quicker than I would if writing a standard virtual series, which is why I chose to use this format. Each sequence will consist of one arc, of 12 episodes. I may base 1-2 sequence off of the same source material (sequences 1 and 2 will be follow the plot of Temple of the Winds). I'll work my hardest to accurately portray the LotS universe in the writing of this series, and hopefully I'll have the first few episodes up and ready by the time this month is over! I'm really excited about this, and I hope you all will be too.
Also, if anyone wants to take up a job on this show, I'll be looking for 1-2 producer(s), who can help with the creative process and if they want, they may write 1 or 2 episodes a sequence.
