The Settlement to the North. Derprussen's progress

17 days ago

I've selected Bucky's tenth option as a writing prompt.

The younger son of a minor noble rallies coin and followers for his venture. His goal? Flee from the kingdom and construct a castle on the shores of the mineral rich unclaimed frozen wastes in the far North.

I've already started character concepts, some pre story history, culture concepts, and began planning the start of the story branching. I also got excited and started writing the first page.

Good luck. I really liked the look of this prompt but at the same time it definitely can't be done as a small game.

It'll take a lot of work to pull off in just over a month, but I was really hoping someone would give it a try.

I'm two pages in. Made some more progress on the outline. Bit more pre game history.

I encourage you to post an excerpt in the Doctor thread and ask some questions. I took a peek at what you had, and I thought it had a lot of potential. The writing wasn't bad but a few pointers will really help polish it and take it to the next level.

I'll be filing away this and many other prompts for possible later use, right next to the ones from last time.

Still waiting on the list of prompts you plan on squirreling away (that's a nicer way of implying stealing) ^_^

It's okay. I'm incorporating aspects of several of them into the thing I should not be doing.

Such sorrow. Someone get the pointy stick of inspiration. Who had it last?

I thought it was a fire poker; then I burned it.

It's been more of a series of busy work days, followed by the next step being to learn a bit more about punctuation. Telling a story is fun, and I'd like to do that in my spare time. Learning Grammar is not fun and isn't the first thing I want to do with my hour or two of free time at the end of the day.
