    Haha. I was afraid of that as well. Still, we can simply bump up this thread whenever we have something to talk about.

    Maybe you can continue about your novel into RPG here. Read your Beta topic to see my reply and post your reply here (as long as it doesn't have to do with your Beta map) and I'll continue.

    *Reads this AFTER replying to his Beta thread* ... Um ... Oops :p

    Well, anyway...Guess we can just sort of change the tracks to here, right?

    Let's face it, all RPG's are a story, right? Well, a book is a story. A movie is a story. Hell, comic books are a story! So why not make an RPG out of one of my books, that so far, has gotten nothing but good reviews...

    Good luck with that :)

    For me writing's a hobby. I don't consider it as my forte, but I don't consider it as a disadvantage either. My sad problem is I can't think what to specialize in. I have way too many interests, way too little time, way too stupid rules placed on those interests. I have an interest in Biology but I seriously disagree with Evolution. I don't want to have to submit before I can experiment on my interesting theories there. Same thing with writing. Classics is always dead white men. If I DO write a popular book, I can easily turn classic since I'm white and male, but it's upsetting to me that a lot of books miss classicdom because of that, and I don't want to see my books get popular after my death. That's just...wrong in my opinion.

    Edit: Don't worry, I noticed that you seemed to have missed the post, so I was typing this up as you were typing what you just said :)

    Could you post a brief plot summary of your book? What are the characters who are introduced in "Act I"? What is the main plot, like what happens and such of "Act II"? Finally, how is the plot finished, the villains beat, that sort of thing, and the protagonist faces his problems and fixes them in "Act III"?

    Lol, I've known since I was 10 that I wanted to be a writer...I do mostly fantasy, since that's what I started reading. Tolkien, King and a few others if I were to go through my library of a room...They're all amazing, especially Tolkien who seemed to have created his own WORLD with its own HISTORY! That has been my biggest goal, and I've actually acheived it! :D I wish I know where my "Timeline of Kranin" was, but my computer recently spazed...(This isn't mine, it's the office one...Faster, more memory, the whole bit) I know I have it on disk, but FINDING that disk is a chore...

    -Edit-

    Any special reason you want to know, or just "playing the kitten"?

    Playing the kitten? I haven't heard that one before :) But yes, I suppose I'm "curious".

    I want to know, simply to determine if your plot's good or not, so that I may comment on it and help you transfer it to your map. I don't think that's a special reason.

    Lol, "playing the kitten" means being curious...And don't take offense to the question, that was just me "playing the kitten". :p

    Hmm, let me try to explain it without giving away all the plot twists :p

    Well, for starters: It's a Vampire book...I've had a fascination with Vampires since ... Forever? lol

    This is the 'summary' I wrote for the back of the book...

    Corruption goes deep into the vampiric community as assassin Alexander Stinda lies his way into the human world. Elizabeth, a high school junior has accidentally stumbled onto New Blood, the hidden Vampire city. Mistaking the town for a cult gathering, Elizabeth begins working with the local police to investigate the town. Alexander’s job is to infiltrate Elizabeth’s school, get close to her, and eliminate her as quietly as possible. But things become complicated when Alexander runs into Thomas, and old rival from his past. Things become even blurrier when he begins to have feelings for his target, and her best friend Jessica, who makes his life difficult by trying to understand him. Then, things get dangerous as the Vampires of New Blood feel Alexander is losing his touch, and taking too long. Can Alexander turn away from a thousand years of blood lust? Or will the new Vampire assassin pick up where Alexander left off, with her much more direct approach of ‘kill now, sort everything else out later’?

    It's not "my" thread, and sure, always looking for new talent...I myself do quite a bit, I've written 67 poems, one of which, "Nightmare" was published in a book called Invoking the Muse! :D www.poetry.com search the name "Kevin Pinaha".

    I knew it meant curious. I just, for whatever reason, haven't heard that expression before.

    Not bad. I personally haven't created a vampire story, but that sounds like a good basis.

    The main question I have though is, what is your opinion of Vampires? There are many different myths, but which one is yours? Are they affected by night/day? Are they hurt by special weapons? How does their blood system work? Do they need to suck blood to live, is it a passtime, or are just plain forced to in the form of "lust"?

    Uh, Alexander, I thought that most of poetry.com is a scam. I don't mean to burst your bubble, but I have received notices on other forums of problems. Just don't pay money to have your poem book delivered to you, it usually never does.

    Nonetheless, good poem :)

    All good questions, which I actually have answers to...

    Are Vampires evil? No, but that doesn't make them good either...Being a Vampire doesn't make you more or less evil then being human, really...Think about it, Humans consume other animals to survive...So do Vampires...Human blood isn't the only blood they feed off of, maybe it's easier, maybe it's sweeter/better tasting/whathaveyou...

    No, MY Vampires have gotten rid of a lot of the old classic myths...They walk in the sunlight, they can enter a church, holy water has no effect...Now, most people say to me "well, then, how come they don't rule over us? They're so damn good, what's stopping them?" Guardians. Humans, in my Vampire series, are not the only type of homo-sapien on the earth. There was a total of 4:
    Guardians
    Hunters
    Witches (Wiccans)
    Humans
    Then, the Vampires were a creation of the Witches (there's a story behind that that is ALSO a book of mine: Illusions)

    Blood system? They need it...But yes, there's lust there, too...The thrill of the feed, it's very primal. But does that make them more animalistic, or just more natural? That, my friend :D is the reader's opinion!

    Edit

    In reference to Poetry.com: You're right, lol...I didn't mind paying though...And hey :D I've got a lot more poetry that I can publish on my own! So hey, screw poetry.com, right? :p
