By now the word of Ela’s death has probably hit all the major news media outlets. I was a little stunned yesterday when I was rolling that up. It would be easy to bring her back, death is cheap in Pathfinder and D&D after all, but that’s the coward’s way.
I’ll be taking a different coward’s way. I’m going to continue with the same character in a new story with the same basic framework. I’m going to update Ela’s stodgy image and give her the sleek, dazzling veneer of the 1970’s. Plus superpowers.
My plan is for this new story to have 80% less content. I realized when I stumbled across a similar D&D blog that I liked that if you’re coming in in the middle there’s no way you’re ever going to care enough to read the thousands of pages of backlog. By not posting 3-10 pages every day for 2 years I hope it will be more approachable.
Also my goal is to make Ela 60% less reprehensible.
I’ll be tinkering with the site a bit to make it more awesome and 70s-riffic and then I’ll get started with the stuff.
In the meantime if you just can’t live without my awkward writing please check out my other tale – https://cultissuchanuglyword.wordpress.com/blog/ my girlfriend has said that it made her uncomfortable only twice!
I know what you’re thinking, “Jeremy, you were born in the 70’s but do you actually know anything about them?” Heck no, but this will be an alternative world where stuff is different so it’s fine. If you read the new story and ever think “that doesn’t seem right” I did that on purpose. That’s a choice. Worldbuilding. Etc.
