Do you have any comments, questions, reactions, or suggestions for The King is Dead?
In my new-found mania for making separate pages on Wine and Savages, I’ve added a page for what I’ve written so far for The King is Dead. Well, most of it anyway; it doesn’t contain the notes on vampire physiology and sexuality that accompany Libertines and Liberated. I know that section needs work; in fact, I know I need to do a lengthy “Monster Ecology” section on vampire society.
What do you think of the material so far? Keep in mind that everything I’ve written and posted thus far is “public brainstorming” – first draft, off the cuff, stream of consciousness stuff. I’m not married to any of it; I’d just rather let the setting come to me organically and in piecemeal rather than force it into a rigid outline and form. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by some of my discoveries – the Church of Sathaniel amuses me to no end and the Bloodstained Blade cracks me up – but I’m worried that I haven’t really captured the intended theme of the setting so far. Knowing what others are thinking would help.
What do you want out of a Gothic revolutionary setting?
