RoN Fan Fiction: A First Attempt
« on: 19 Nov 2014, 19:10 »
Hi all,

For quite some time (almost a year, to be precise), I wanted to write some fan fiction for RoTN. I have finally managed to finish my first piece. It is a tale concerning a certain photograph in Max Griff's office.

I have one or two more ideas for possible stories, and hopefully I will get enough time to etch them in virtual ink and share them with you.  :smiley:

Considering the variety of devices used for reading these days, I have made the story available as a PDF, which can be downloaded here.

As usual, comments, criticisms and constructive feedback are always welcome.
That's all for now,

That was excellent! Props in particular for taking elements that weren't particularly developed from the games (the Nameless Law Official, the Frank/Fred feud) and for doing something interesting with them. Can't wait to read more.

Also, Permanent Daylight? A reference to an upcoming game?

Thanks. I had my doubts about the style of story-telling, but I went ahead with it as I wanted to try something different. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed it.

It's a very old (DOS based) AGS game. The game page is here. The download link on that page is broken, but a copy of the game can be downloaded from the AGS Archives. A walkthrough is available at Utimate Game Solutions (click on the flag to view).

I've already slipped a reference to the events of this story into the remaster of Lunchtime of the Damned I'm working on. I've half a mind to go back to The Underworld at some point and, along with adding the new graphics, making what happened between Frank and Fred in it the proper reason for their feud.

Assuming of course Kunafits isn't still around and objects to me taking further liberties with his original game...

Great stuff.  The narrative device of telling the story through journal entries was a nice way illustrating the thoughts of the respective characters.  Your story also holds the distinction of being the first piece of fiction in a very long while.

I'd like to get it on the site and make a formal announcement.

I eagerly look forward to playing it.

Please do. The story is licensed under an attribution-only license (this is mentioned on the second page), so there is no need to ask for my permission.  :smiley:
