okey something I put up in Sb before I am posting here to see if there is any interest.
An idea. the night of zepppo there isn't any zombies around so Xanders still feeling humilitied decides to leave the sunnydale and actually go to road trip as he wants to find himself wich he wasn't able to do in canon. He leaves and has many adventure on the road (Maybe get a power which is explained at below) than he comes to a city like NY and finds out City doesn't have any good guys to protect it. cue Xander the Series type adventures where he gathers a gang. than maybe some one like Oz and Amy or Anya comes around from canon to join to it.
Fleshing out the City would be impotant I think. A few of my ideas is;
A big bad which story would focus but other side missions along the way to help people.
A gang of werewolfs which has a bar on the seedy part of town.
A criminal boss wich learned about night life and is traying to clean out his territory.
A technomage in the pursuit of new technologies.
A potential slayer whose watcher killed and she is looking for the killer.
A Newspaper building bombed for looking in to workings of a demon clans wich Xander can take over to set shop.
I was thinkin about giving Xander a power without OP him than I remembered this old bunny of mine.
As for power I was thinkin Xander would meet a group of people who are practioner of magic but since they have little amount of power for conventional magic they insted focus on one thing and one thing only. By doing that they become very good since they are focused, but because of that they lose all potential of other magic. So Someone who chooses to become Pyromancer will be able to control any amount of fire not burned by fire and can pretty much burn anything.
Xander realising he should his own niche in fighting decides to do something like that but a big weakness in mancer type of magic is that someone who is immunue to your magic can secrew you over so doing something as common as pyromancy doesn't appeal to him instead choosing to something more exotic which he comes across at the start of the story(which is from oWoD).Temporis
Since it is so exotic disipline that very few knows Xander can challange a lot of big bads without coming acroos to some demon which is imminue to his abilities. but every now and than he comee across a someone who has temporal abilities which keeps Xander in his toes. Also learning the basic skill would take entire story By the end of it (around season 7) Xander would retun to fight against The First. By then he would have barely started to study advanced abilities of Temporis.
