You need a lot of people to help you, and as DS said, take your time to finalize each article.
Yes, precisely.

No, that's not what I was saying. If your long term goal is to bring the Codex back under that name, fine.

But for *now*, as you are really just at the very beginning of thinking about laying the groundwork for that lofty goal, I'm going to humbly suggest you adopt a more moderate short term goal.

Specifically, you say you want to be involved. I'm assuming that means as a writer, and you want to be a writer than the very best thing you can do is write. Make it regular, and make it interesting both to you and to your audience.

Fiction? Write Bios.

Humor? How about a little Q&A with the Ogre Pulverizer?

Critical? Dig out some of the official literature of the game and assemble it into pictures of how the Marro might reproduce or something, basing your argument on things you might learn from official bios or whatever.

Strategy? If you've got the chops, go for it.

The most important thing is to make sure it is *interesting*. Not just for your audience, but for you, because if it's a chore you will likely lose interest.

Do it once, do it again, do it again. See how you like it. There are a few good writers doing fan fiction on this site; swap stories with them, if fiction is your thing (apologies if you're doing that already, I didn't look).

If you're doing something repetitive (Once every two weeks a new set of high quality photos, or once a month a new humorous short story about Eldgrim's adventures in Valhalla, or whatever), give it a name that will be completely your own. You will come up with a name for yourself (The War Journals of Eldgrim the Tall).

Nope. Never said that. I'm just saying you'll need a lot of people, as Daniel Loche said, and everybody will have a particular role. I wouldn't presume to guess what your role might be, one day.

Why don't you think about what you would *like* your role to be, though, and work on it as part of Phase 1. Where I'm suggesting you write, but you can/should work on art, if you'd rather, or whatever.

If you're writing the serialized War Journals of Eldgrim the Tall then I don't think you have to ask anybody anything. If you enjoy it and you think you might be building a following then have some talks with other writers and an artist or two. But first you have to establish that you're comfortable doing the part you think you want to do.

One of the great dramatists of them all, Stephen Sondheim, reminded us of this important fact of life in his brilliant Into the Woods:

Wishes come true, not free.

You know what you want to wish for. Now spend some time doing a little bridge building and soul searching by creating just one small part of it, and see how that goes.
Somehow, that was really inspiring...

Re: The wait is Over HS Codex #11 is Here!

The Codex site is no more. I've uploaded PDFs to Google Docs. Check the link in my signature.

Could an Admin add the link to the first post of this thread?

The links in the post just before yours seem to work fine (other than the fact that the link for issue #1 was formatted improperly).

Don't think of it as being outnumbered. Think of it as having a wide shot selection!

It wasn't "formatted improperly", it was intentionally sabotaged.

Also, check this out!

~JS, off to fix it

EDIT: I fixed it!

They are Mage Knight figures. Check this thread by LordRaidor


Edit: Out of curiosity, I searched for Solonavi on a few sites. Miniature Market doesn't have any. CoolStuffInc has a Solonavi Domineer, which isn't used. Troll and Toad has a bunch listed, but all out of stock. The only place I found some available was eBay. They seem pretty pricey there - no real surprise.

Re: The wait is Over HS Codex #11 is Here!

Thanks for the information mac122. I kind of thought once I found out what figures that were used would be hard to find or quite expensive. I just remember reading about the Zavari Incursion sometime back. It was a great concept and quite creative so I thought I might try to bring it back for my son and I to play. Not sure at these prices if its worth it to bring it to life on the battlefields in my home. I should have tried to purchase those figures way back when I first saw that article. Thanks again.
