Hi steerpike, New member looking to get involved in the Dragons egg actIII before the battle commences..
I have Pmed ou over my stats race and class, i didnt want to send you another message as i realize how busy you must be.. So i though i would leave you a VM.
Should i write myself into the chat such as, "suddenly an old wizard appears" Or an elderly man comes running up, the goblins razor sharo arrows whistling past his ears as he runs behind cover"
or would you like to write me in in some way, Your the Gm so i thought it would be clear respect to ask you first
I noted a few difference. Hard to put my thumb on exactly what they were. I felt that the prose was more archaic. I think it stems from the dialogue itself. As to the "lean" writing style, yes, he seems to be less focused on description and more on the exchange between characters.
Steer, I just started reading Forge of Darkness and I came across the scene that contains your quote. I put of reading Steven Erikson for the exact feeling I had after completing that scene. A mix of wonder, apprehension and envy. The guy is a genius and he seems to break all the rules that are often espoused here.
I forgot to thank you for letting me use your name for a character (even though it's from another writer). I really appreciate it. If you were a character in another writer's stories, what would you prefer to be? By that I mean (to use the ol' D&D lingo) race, class, alignment, etc.?
