I wanted to welcome everyone who followed this blog in the last two to three days. This blog, my writing archive, doesn’t get many updates. I mostly use it for holding on to work I’ve written electronically, but isn’t finished or is part of a larger project. Still, there’s some good stuff here.

My main blog is AntonyMCopeland.me, which is also a wordpress site. As you can see by following the link, I update it far more regularly. There’s even a tab dedicated to the Hermes925 story, a sample of which I posted on this site.

The barfight scene is one of the first ideas I came up with for the story, back when the working title was ‘Avalon’. Originally the protagonist had been the elf, outsmarting a local barfly who thought his ‘tank’ was invincible. It’s more fun this way and illustrates the relationship, the enmity, between Jaime and Psiman much better.

I’m only two more entries away from catching the main plot up to the barfight. One of which is already drafted. Go to AntonyMCopeland.me and hover over the Hermes925 tab to see the story so far. While you’re at it please check out my general articles under the ‘blog of indefinite purpose‘ tab, and give the page a follow.

As always I appreciate any comments and feedback. Thank you all and have a great day. 🙂

Dragon attacks the burning city

The City of Gate: Chronicles

For I while now I’ve been running a game on Facebook called The City of Gate. You should follow the link and join in. It’s fun keeping the story going while reacting to whatever unexpected stuff that the players throw at me. While coming up with non-player characters and figuring out how they fit into the overarching plot I came up with I ended up with a collection of journal entries and letters written by the npcs. I called this collection ‘The City of Gate: Chronicles’ and had been considering trying to publish the collection as a book.

You can see the collection by following this link, or going to the files tab on the City of Gate Facebook Group.

I think the collection works well if you’re deep into the backstory of the game, but taken on their own, there’s not enough context to make it a complete book. With that in mind I started writing episodic posts into a Facebook fanpage for the City of Gate book. What I’m thinking of doing is interspersing the Chronicles with the backstory ‘verses’. If I like the result I’ll re-launch my page on Inkshares.com to try and raise the money to get it published. What do you guys think?
