I did a thing

dndfreak:
I had the chance/inspiration the other day to start writing fiction, something I haven't done in a while. I've spent probably close to eight hours total putting a first chapter together, but I haven't proofread at all, so fair warning.

HERE IS THE LINK NOW IF YOU WISH TO GO IN BLIND


The basic premise is that this is a fantasy novel in which someone from our world wakes up in what appears to be a stereotypical tabletop rpg campaign setting. The characters are actually aware of the quantifiable numbers which govern the world, and speak and act according to game terminology. The result is a mixture of high fantasy adventure and tongue-in-cheek nerd references. The inspiration comes in part from the webcomic Erfworld, which does something similar but for 4x strategy games rather than tabletop rpgs.

I'm not sure if I want to continue this, or what I'll do with it. It was fun to write, which makes me want to work at it, but the copyrights involved make it a tough sell for me to do anything with if I actually finish it. The optimal solution would be to get in contact with someone at Paizo, but I doubt that would happen. I looked into it and they don't accept unsolicited submissions. They do have a writer's subforum, I guess, but I don't know how much attention they give it.

Inkling:
I'll definitely be checking this out.
