"Right, before I wander off to find my bed, the other little thing on my todo list will be posted in the kittencorps forum. For those wanting to partake of it, send you comments there please. I will eventually catch up with everything.
The item todo is: Craft a book of Lore/Quotes/Law/History of the rise of the 'Corps and it's members. Addons/amendments/Wars can be added or merged at a later stage."
This idea sprung on me a while ago and was inspired by the first ever 'Corps Comics that were put up. We really need to see more of those.
The main idea here is to gather all the data, facts, sidenotes, e-mails (where applicable).
Smash it together, fry it up, dry it out, sift it, mix with some herbs and spice and finally add some water.
Bake for 24 days @ 120 degrees C or until golden brown. (Fruitcake will be included, if only to be blown up)
(Thanks a bundle to CB and GC for providing most of the data that I will need for some side projects, including map expansions)
The end result will hopefully be an Epic Tome of the history of the corps, our interactions with each other, the KS comment(ers/tards, pick your fancy), and the creators of the EK Campaign. Included will be little adventures, or sallies, of our otherwordly exploits (ie. those that did not happen on the internet, or in Derp's case, those that did not happen in the ocean).
There may also be books inside the book, as most religious texts seem to think this is a good idea, where I will condense the infinite wisdom of the 'Corps and extrude it in verse form, or in quotable snippets for easy consumption/reference.
If others can do this, why can't we?
Saga's will also be included, such as the riddle 'hour' and Creeper's 'precious'. So this should become a fairly hefty Tome by the time I'm done.
Thoughts and Comments are welcome. Drafts will be sent out either on a chapter base, or when I get halfway through a section.
There is no timeline on this one and I might not keep up with all the comments spawned. I will not forget about this thread and there will be an Epic Tome released at some point in the future. I haven't forgotten about the maps either. Nor about Prof F and sticking his icon on the Moon.
Thank you all for being awesome!!!!!!
On a side note, when this does eventually surface, would you like to have a physical copy of the book? And if we go that route, should we make it available for others, not just the 'Corps?
And on that side note, should we maybe flog this to a publisher at the end and raise some money? Possibly to help out the creators attend a 'Con or two? Thoughts welcome.
