I'm glad you like it!!! ;D

Well i hope to get it published as soon as its finished. But i'll probably have my English teacher read it over before i publish it.

What better way to get good constructive criticism than from an English teacher.

Ok then. Well, having your English teacher is a good idea. They do know a lot! I would have posted this earlier but I had to get off........

Thanks.

Hey, if you guys want yourselves to be mini characters in the novel give me the name you want your character to be (something that would fit) and a brief description of what your character will look like. I can probably make 3 - 5 mini characters.

That sounds great! I want to be in it if you can.......But I'd have to think of a name and a description.

Drake14
01-09-2007, 08:21 PM
Post the name and description. Oh, you also have to choose a race and class.

Races
Human
Dwarf
Gnome
Elf
Barbarian

classes
fighter
monk/priestess
mage (fire or water)

Also choose what weapons and armor you would have.

I'll need some time to post a description. But I can get the rest! Can I be both an Elf and a Mage? And for a name........I don't know exactly what your looking for, so will Sherry work??

Drake14
01-09-2007, 08:30 PM
You can be any mix of race/class that you want.

And sherry will be fine ;D

01-09-2007, 08:33 PM
Ok, great! Now you can work me in somewhere when I make my description.

Drake14
01-09-2007, 08:36 PM
Indeed i will. It will probably be later on in the story.

And...you may have to die XD but if you dont want to die let me know. ;D

KittyCat72
01-09-2007, 08:40 PM
I could always just have to leave or something.........
But then again, I don't really care.
Hey, it's your book, you can make whatever you want happen to me! ;D

They say a picture is worth 1000 words. In this case it is! Just from the cover picture you can tell it's going to be good, and it hasn't even been completed!

First I like to say good luck with the book sounds interesting. also that cover looks great the only problem i have with it is the text. the text just looks out of place and does not go with rest of the picture at all. thats my only recommendation other then that good luck ;D

Drake14
01-09-2007, 10:58 PM
Well the text placement looks fine when the whole image fits in the screen. Try adjusting the scroll bar.

As for the font...I've gotta check that and see what i can come up with.

Thanks! ;D

And i have to say it looks amazing. But he may add more things if he thinks of any later.
