You know, if they're blind . . . they might not see this question.

Are any fantasy worlds really "created," or are they only "discovered"? Sometimes I wonder.

And my books are probably best left until about age 13+. I think my style most applies to a 17-19+ audience, but it's definitely not for pre-teens.

Though I have thought about the possibilities of a YA novel . . . Hmm.

Cheers

YA novels aren't necessarily about kids, they just target younger readers as an audience, appealing to things that concern teenagers: bullying, growing up, dealing with girls/boys, being popular/outcast, etc.

I wonder if WotC has ever considered an FR YA line, like they have for . . . [furtive look to make sure Wooly's not around] Dragonlance?

If they did, I'd likely still check such books out, even though I would not be a member of the target audience.

Well, the Harry Potter mania has opened up a whole new world for YA fantasy. A lot of agents/publishers are very keen on picking up novels of the sort . . .

Great point--no reason why so-called "YA" novels can't appeal to all kinds of people.

I know I enjoyed the Young Jedi Knights novels by Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta (he outlines stories well, but is not much of a writer, his wife (Moesta) however is an excellent writer, so the books turned out well ).

This is actually the type of thinking that led the Lady K and I to produce, for our little Narnra, an illustrated and summarised version of Ed's "One Comes, Unheralded, to Zirta." It's still just as much a fun tale, and something that younger children can, I believe, enjoy just as much as the adults.

We even went as far as writing a small piece of piano sheet music to complement parts of the story. There's unusual sounds that follow the flow of the story, and funny voices and dress-ups involved, but we get the job done. Needless to say, little Narnra smiles and laughs every time she asks to hear this particular story.

And it's all thanks to the magic of Ed!

Dragginglance was how I got intro'ed to the Realms. I shan't sweat the occasional reference to it.

I'm even going to replace all the Weis/Hickman DL novels I had. I shan't bother with the other ones, but definitely the Weis/Hickman ones.

Oh I think they are definately targeting teens with 4.0.

I do not know why they would stop with the setting and leave the novels alone!

If you say so--myself, I don't see it.

I can neither confirm nor deny. :)

Though, if I wrote a YA novel that wasn't FR or sword-and-sorcery by extraction, I would probably use a pseudonym.

Just thought that I would let you know that I read The Greater Treasure in Realms of the Elves and enjoyed it. Will have to look into at least borrowing Depths of Madness from the library even if I do not buy it.

Hey Erik, I hope you don't mind, but I have a theoretical questions that is based on a few suppositions, if you don't mind indulging (and I fully realize that as such its all theory and no "canon," so to speak). (Spoilers for the Savage Tide Adventure Path from Dungeon Magazine):

Assuming the most likely resolution of the Savage Tide, that being the destruction of Demogorgon and his displacement as the Prince of Demons, how would this affect Slip, and what would she do one way or the other?

Thanks in advance Erik.

Well, I am certainly not an expert, nor am I a designer, nor do I even know anything about the Savage Tide adventure path, but . . .

Theoretically, if Demogorgon were to buy the farm, kick the bucket, get offed, etc. for any reason, any of a number of things would happen to one of his priests--in particular, one of his favored souls, which Daltyrex is. (We're going to assume, for the sake of this discussion, that Demogorgon really *is* Daltyrex's divine patron, grants spells, etc.)

If your divine patron goes beyond beyond the veil, I imagine you lose all divine abilities granted by that patron. If this happens at a bad time, it's possible your prepared spells still function (because the god/dess gave you the power when you prayed); then again, they might not. Also, possibly the death of a deity might have consequences for a favored soul. Those are questions for a designer. Regardless, you wouldn't be able to pray for more spells thereafter from that patron (obviously).

Now as for Daltyrex's case. If/when Demo dies, Daltyrex loses her divine abilities, possibly leading to a disruption of her control of the Depths. Assuming she survives, escapes the Depths, gets out of the desert alive, etc., she might latch onto a new deity, who may or may not be able to replace her abilities. This hasn't happened to her before--in my conception, she was always a servant of Demogorgon, even if she didn't realize it--she never served Yondalla, then converted, etc. Logically, she would just serve Demo's replacement--s/he might very well make it a priority to recruit Demo's best servants--or she might not, because the replacement may want to get rid of all trace of Demogorgon (pull a Kiaranslee). Or someone else entirely might claim her soul the way Demogorgon has.

As for Daltyrex's actual fate, I couldn't say. WotC might indeed want to write that someday.


So that's my thinking on the subject. You are free, of course, to have anything you want happen in your own game--if this even applies to your game. :)

Cheers

Heh, not to my game specifically, but when I got to thinking about the subject and its potential ramifications for the Realms, I thought of Slip right off the bat, so I thought I'd pick your brain on the theoretical subject.

Spoiler for the Tide, again:

While there is no "official" ending, James Jaccobs said his thought process would be something along the lines of, after the smoke clearing, and all of Orcus' and Graz'zt's and the other's troops leaving the field, Obox-ob might claim the title again. This might make for an interesting patron for Slip, but I don't know if the Lord of Vermin would be interested in her as a favored soul.

At any rate, thanks for the reply Erik. I appreciate it.

Erik,

I was in a Borders the other night and decided to flip through The Grand History of the Realms.

It was very cool to see Fox at Twilight's little blurb in there!

See, I don't have a copy of this book yet, so I haven't read it myself! GAH!!!

Ok. I'm better.

It's a huge honor to be included in such a prestigious, pivotal, and even somewhat controversial work, and one that was born right here at the Keep!

I've also had the honor to meet Brian James in person (though not read his book! Bad Erik! Bad!) and his darling family--which tides me over until I can actually get a copy.

Cheers

Not that this is particularly relevant, but for all those Fox-at-Twilight fans out there, I came up with a pic that's pretty spot on for my visualization of Twilight.

Interestingly enough, it's one of the first "fantasy women" pictures I saw as a kid, getting into then 2e AD&D. Strange how memory works out.

Anyway, check out my blog to read all about it:

Neat. You broke into D&D through PLANESCAPE, Erik? No wonder you and I connect so well. And just as Elmore was DRAGONLANCE, Diterlizzi was PLANESCAPE. Great stuff!

As for the "Cat Lord," I can definitely feel the "Twilight-vibe" from it. 'Tis one of my favorite images from the Planescape Monstrous Compendium I.
