Title: Bloodlines - Legacy of the Lost Dragoon
Post by: MaxiPower on March 08, 2019, 08:59:32 AM
So a long time ago I was making that Golden Sun fan fiction "Golden Sun Chronicles".  At one point I had art commissioned and then became inspired to write my own story.

it took many paths, first I began writing, then I tried RPG maker, but i returned to writing and am proud that I have something to actually show off in regards to a physical book, only 110 pages or so, first 8 chapters of a 23 total so it has some to go but i have the story nailed down now.

Character on right is work in progress, detail on hands and sword need finished.

Ew. Photobucket... and that nasty watermark. (Heheh. )   (Clearly, I don't trust them. Would rather choose something more like imgur... but that's just me.)

Anyway, this looks like a neat project you are working on.  Glad to see that Golden Sun is still getting some love! :)   (I assume that this is still Golden Sun based?)

nah its strictly a novel now. tried my hands at rpg maker few years ago and got about 30 mins of gameplay bit it waa too much work for one person.

30 minutes of gameplay? Could have released a demo. (Even if project would be discontinued.)

I don't know much about the story/etc. so couldn't say if I could be a second person. (Maybe not(?), but you never know.)

And keeping it to a novel is fine. - Not sure if you'll be posting the story for us to read, though? (Unless I missed it.)

Well wow.  :heart:
This is all pretty amazing stuff.
Your art looks very good and I am a bit curious whats inside the book.

I wonder though, what is your big plan? You want to publish a game with these ideas?
I don't know your position but this seems advanced enough to go to a studio with.
Otherwise I would have at least gone with this to a more active social hub.

As long as you stay independent I could help with some things as long as they take little time. I became pretty alright in starting projects and organizing stuff. I am not much of a help with RPGMaker as I never got around learning much of it.

Well, a game is what he wanted to do, but he discontinued that... and said it was strictly a novel. (As in what was said a couple posts up.)

But I wouldn't be surprised if after the book is finished and after we've all settled down for a bit, that it could eventually be attempted by a small group.

Yea It is strictly a novel tho might have supplementary book with all the character art as there will be about a dozen or so drawings hopefully by the end and then including sketches and other concept art. Id have more character artwork but they are rather expensive. They are great for advertising as they are eye catchy and if anything else they will make great posters. forgive me, i can never get that imjur to work. when embedding. Do you have any suggestions were to share the project to garner attendtion. I was on reddit. This is were it all began tho. <3

Id love to make a game, tho if i had to decide now what it would be then severe changes would have to be made as what makes a game good and what makes say a book or film good are different things tho but yea when this project is done, id love to do other things like maybe a board game.

You can't embed with imgur?

Let me test. (Random image.)

^ Testing your image now. ... but on imgur. (With photobucket watermark.)

Looks fine for me?

Hmmm.....

Not sure if it is to do with your comp or location/etc. It is strange, though...

--

As for places to advertise...
Other than Facebook, Youtube, Reddit, GSHC

.... I don't know.  Maybe put up an eBook on amazon. (Not sure how that's done.)

Ah got it now, I was clicking embed and trying to use the url it generate but there was another button for forums.


Warning, really big images, even bigger than before. I didnt make bigger but for some reason they look even bigger. though this is the true resoloution of the images, photobucket must reduce quality

Cool. That's good to hear.
Now you know why I like imgur. They don't mess with your stuff much./You get what you put in. + A small url.
