I'm working on a second novel. This one is completely different from the first. It's a fantasy adventure novel on the surface, and is also a nod to and parody of classic fantasy computer RPGs. If you remember Bard's Tale, Pool of Radiance, Wizardry, Might and Magic, or any of many other CRPGs, older and newer, you may find a bit of humorous nostalgia there.

I'm taking a different tactic with this story, releasing chapters of the rough draft in blog form to generate some discussion and feedback. I might eventually publish a revised version of the story as an ebook, counting on reader comments rather than a professional editor to help me pull the project together.

You can find the first several chapters at http://bardball.blogspot.com/

Just offhand, the 6th chapter title makes me think of a song of ice and fire. Did GRRM influence this at all?

Another offhand, is the main character's name Leeroy Jenkins?

I've read his books (except for the newest one), so it's possible. I'm not intentionally giving him any nods here, because I'm primarily focused on games rather than books, but a little might slip in at some point.

The Player is really more incidental than a main character, but that is entirely the kind of joke I might make.

I won't keep bumping this but wanted to mention I've added a lot more material already and I think I've got a (mostly) weekly schedule down for regular-ish updates.

I hardly ever check the forums unless I need to have you considered using the mailing option of the game? I have it on since ever and never got a single email lol
