My fellow Covian brothers and sisters. Right now I'm writing a novel about the great time I had within this wonderful community. Meaning, I bring the story and a close friend brings it on papers. Currently, I have 8.5 chapters and about 90 pages of text. The novel is supposed to be three acts / books with around 12-15 chapters each.

I already was able to clarify copyright cases with Richard Lord British Garriot himself, meaning, the towns and world will have different names, like Yww will be Stroud, Vesper will be Durrun and Cove will be Shoreham, etc.

Now, I wanted to ask you guys (at least those that still visit these boards), what you think about it and if you'd be willing to "lend" your characters for it.


The story's overall focus will be put on Ilyana of course, but other main roles would be:

Act 1:
- Rita and Ruby Whalebiter
- Bersi
- Kal Shadowhand as Fred*
- Gabriel and Lucas Drachen
- Abigail Keres
- Iolan Grimsditch
- Viktor Kien
- Kas Valentine
- Celuvian Haap
- Jennifer Feather
- Minor Roles by Elizabeth Pickles Martin, Raiden Morana, Torrak Keres and Hoagie

Act 1 contains Ily's first months in the army, up to the Altmere riots and the arcanist trials for her, and ends with the battle of Jhelom and the death of the Whalebiters, Iolan and Jen, and the retirement of Raiden, while Torrak becoming the new Commander


Act2 (probable cast, not definite set yet):
- Bersi
- Kal Shadowhand*
- Elizabeth Pickles Martin
- Abigail, Torrak & Cailin Keres
- Hoagie
- Cor'Vani*
- Kiran
- Leanne Melior
- Celuvian Haap
- Kas Valentine
- Keitaro Kazami
- Brenna Nightshade
- Sergio Jarrett
- Minor Roles by Gabriel and Lucas Drachen, Faden Wildheart and Markus Kobra

Act 2 will be about Ilyana experimenting with Blackrock and getting slowly infected by it, becoming that utter bitch she was for a while, Bersi trying to scheme for power and manipulate Ilyana, up to the point with Kal, Cor'Vani and Brenna deserting the army and ending with Cove saving Yew's buttholes during the plague

Any thoughts?

*I know Kal is unfortunaly unable to give his two cents, but you think he'd be okay with the idea / would like the idea?

Sincerely,
Ilybanana

Just make sure your Covians are sufficiently terrible people. We wouldn't want people thinking we've gone soft in our transition to the literary world.

Also, Ilyyyyyyyy! How're things?

Also, added you on Steam. You'll know it's me because the avatar is a badly drawn cartoon version of George Washington melting the (offscreen) British with his laser beam eyes.

Of course Keres. I'll make Torrak the worst person ever, so 100% accurate Smiley

I'm doing fine, my thanks. Hope you're good and healthy as well

Also, added you and your beautiful profile pic on Steam Smiley

Hi, great to hear about this.

I'm doing a similar project but with my Yew character *ducks from sudden missiles and any flamethrowing from Kas*  I'm curious with your choice of towns.. Stroud is just up the road from where I live so would be weird for me to write Yew as that, but I'm thinking up new names for the other places.

I'm 3 chapters in to my first draft and have at least 3 books planned for the series.

Would be good to here how you're getting on and where you plan to publish.

Sheesh, Hoagie. We didn't have much to do with each other until the Jhelom Campaign. You get a bigger role in part 2 :p
