I didn't know Klinger had a name. Never thought it could be tamed so we always had  :monkeys: follow it around and clean up after it.

Welcome to the Citadel Arvala.  :hyper: :hyper: :hyper: :hyper:

Spot on, Fan, on the getting ahead bit, I was merely throwing out ideas but yes, I think we need to get the nitty gritty stuff down first like who would be involved in the production team, ways to share cost/profits b/w the production team and authors etc. that was in fact what I thought after posting this idea yesterday.

I like the idea of multiple lines of books, but I would be concerned that we might be getting ahead of ourselves a bit. I think we should focus on one aspect and learn from our mistakes. We should really get the process down, then start looking at branching out.

I would recommend we treat it as a magazine (kind of like Reader's Digest or something similar) but perhaps with a stronger theme for each volume. I do think that pulling content directly from subs will limit the commercial appeal of the book, but that may not be an issue for anyone (it isn't for me). If this is to be a commercial venture with the intention of generating subs, then I think expanding on the subs in the books would be a more commercially viable alternative. I would limit the number of subs per volume and keep the price lower in that case so people that want detail on a particular sub don't feel like they spent too much money on information they aren't interested in.

Another alternative is that the subs are released on the website some period of time after the book is released. Perhaps a new sub type that would keep it private except for people that are involved in the book venture could be created if this option were chosen.

I'm involved more heavily over at the submission end of the Citadel but the forums is a great place for chatting (besides the chat box) and roleplaying. Take your time exploring around but do visit some of the great submissions available here.

"Thanks! Can't wait to explore and look around! From what I've seen, I'm liking the Roleplay section a lot, and I hope I might be able to grow both as a writer, and with my own ideas! Not sure which to check out first... it's like a shiny new toy I got with all these features I've yet to discover!"

*Squiggle-Squiggly* :cthulhu:

"Klinger's happy too! He's glad to finally see someone else besides just me. He gets a little lonely sometimes with just us. He's a really social octopus." :wink:

Okay, I had this idea running around in my head and chat with Axle re-affirmed it so I'm throwing things out to be discussed. How about we split Citadel ebook publishing into 2 streams: 1 for gaming materials and 1 for fiction? Can be published under same name and everything as the Paths of Horror but the splitting is just to group like with like. Then I've got this idea that for each e-book, regardless of stream, we could open a quest inviting new subs on the theme of the e-book (Let's face it, each ebook would take at least 1-2 months even if we re-use the same templates from the Paths of Horror so we might as well put this time to good use by inviting more subs of the theme of a particular e-book. Having more material is no prob., we just put out volume 2, 3 etc. but just excuse to invite new subs.) This way, the e-book is not just about money, fame and the rest of it but also strengthening the core of the Citadel which is to be a springboard for more new subs. Others' thoughts on what I said above?

"Oh, Hi there! Sorry, I was reading an old book written by this Lovecraft guy of yours! He's absolutely fascinating! I never thought that such stories would be so similar to the Great Algoros! I could just read this for days..."


"... Hmm? Oh, right, sorry! Got a bit distracted again."

"Anyways, my name's Arvala Malloske!... but you, umm... probably already knew that... heh... umm, let's see, a little bit about myself... Oh, I'm a High-Elf, more particularly a Sun Elf, (if you can't tell from my lovely bronze skin). I'm a Warlock, my otherworldly patron is Algoros the Omniscient, I like reading, practicing awesome magic, and anything with Honey on it... Hmm... what else?..."

I've just recently started DMing myself, a little over a month ago, and so far my players seem to be enjoying themselves! I might be new to DMing, but I'm definitely not new to Roleplaying. I've been an on-again/off-again Forum Roleplayer for about 7 years now, and I've done one or two online MMORPGs before this, which I first started my RP tracks. I found this place when I was doing one of my more recent Google searches for DMing Resources, and just loved the ideas that I saw on here! I'm eager to explore and contribute to the vast resource on here as well!

"Anyways, aside from that little OOC stuff, Arvala Malloske is here and ready to follow whatever path her Great Old One sends her on next, and maybe to give a few ideas along the way!

*Squiggly-Squiggly* :cthulhu:

"Oh, Hey there Klinger! Did you want to say hi to all the new people?"

*Squiggly-Squiggle* :cthulhu:

"Sorry, I forgot to mention, Klinger's my Octopus Familiar. I carry him with me inside my Staff, and I don't know what I'd do without him! He's helped me get through quite a few situations that I might have gotten hurt in. Try not to get him too upset though, he'll bite you, and, umm... it's a liiiiiittle poisonous. Don't worry though, just don't make my little Klingy jealous, and you'll be just fine!"

*Squiggle* :cthulhu:

"Anyways, it's great to introduce myself, and I can't wait to talk and collaborate with the rest of you in the future!"
