    Thinking of starting a graphic novel of sorts on DkS

    Post by Buggy Virus on Tue Apr 24, 2012 1:20 pm

    I would talk about it in here, but I don't want to discuss the entire plot on a public forum. That's bad story. But I do need help with some of the advanced lore, so I am looking for a place to discuss with people knowledgeable about lore (whether that be in private messaging or otherwise)

    This is the right place for sure. I know you're familiar with the forums at this point so you can probably find just about anything in this section and if not, you'd know who has looked into what to pm. Good luck with the story!

    Yep, we have a bunch of threads on various topics, as well as Acidic's which basically encompasses everything, so just ask around, check threads, or message people. Sounds like an interesting idea.

    Thanks for the support guys. I personally can't wait to get started, then watch everyone to tear me apart over not following canon.

    Gonna make andrei god of war. And he is going to randomly mess stuff up.

    P.S. Vamos is totally black smith deity.

    I can tell already I am so wrong.

    I'm for it! I love reading stuff like this. Though 9 times out of 10 it usually turns into something else....

    "Andre then grabbed his hammer, it was rigid in his age. However the stamina he's gain from his work, as well as the experience which was apparent on his smiling face allowed him to really let loose. It was then that Black Iron Tarkus noticed the blacksmith had taken his pants off..."

    My friend, do yourself a favour: Aim for what many know, not the unknown. Aim for, I don't know, different Heros from different times and worlds, in which do there own thing in Lordran, and are connected from the use of orbs and Soapstones. Perhaps even a Gravelord incident.

    Do not aim for Velka, god of war, or anything you do not know. Just my idea. Aim low first. Then, aim higher.

    It would probably be a bit interesting more so to see him come up with his own characters. I've always though it's more interesting for Fan Fiction to not involve any characters from the series, rather just the world. So that would probably go hand in hand with what Acidic said.

    Although a steamy smithing encounter would get you points for originality...If I hadn't already come up with it.

    Buggy, follow canon and I'll rip your eyeballs out twisted

    Seriously though, I think it would be better if you make it non cannon, but mainly make use of the characters and evils present in the lore, just perhaps putting a slightly different spin on them, only adding an extra character or two who you think are necessary.

    Also, ignore cook. silly If you don't aim above and beyond, how do you expect to ever find your way out of the ground? Have some ambition, and work the characters to their utmost.

    Well, at the moment the plan is this.

    It will have ten different books.

    One for each starting class, maybe a tenth for the conclusion.

    Each character will interact with the others through time distortion and such. Finding their own covenants and having their own starting gifts. All the NPC phantoms met within the game who aren't talking NPCs or darkwraiths are characters, and a few other random lore characters.

    Short list as of this moment:

    Warrior: New Character
    Knight: Iron Knight Tarkus
    Wanderer: *******
    Thief: New Character
    Bandit: *******
    Hunter: *******
    Sorcerer: Witch Beatrice
    Pyromancer: Solomon
    Cleric: Paladin Leroy
    Deprived: New Character

    A few are blotted out. I'm mapping out the story at the moment (So that I don't end up with a meandering thing that never endes) and it's a bit mind boggling with the time distortion.

    That's pretty cool.

    I can't believe Tolvo forgot that Andrei actually has a crush on Lautrec not Tarkus. He's got a thing for the bad boys.....keh he heh

    If you're a good enough writer, I say go for it. Would love to read it.

    A suggestion: why not make one of the characters you're unsure about end up turning Hollow? You would show how unforgiving Lordran is and how it consumes even the greatest of heroes. Just a thought, sometimes failure is more interesting than success.

    This. Remember that there are no happy endings in lordran. You have to keep the theme of sadness and depression going throughout the books. The snese of hopelessness should be palpable.

    A steamy merchant encounter!

    Cut and print it. I'll be in my three-story trailer.

    Well it wouldn't be a book, but a graphic novel, but something along those lines, yes.
