In this update, Joe shares his thoughts on the launch of the collaborative project, how fans can contribute to the world, and what the team’s up to these days (and I share my thoughts on the project at the end).
The Clockwork Servant, if used correctly, could provide our nation with an enormous amount of power. Like any kind of power, however, it must be dealt with wisely, and it must not fall into the wrong hands. I have every trust that Her Majesty will choose the wisest course of action, and act in the best interests of her people. – Lady Frobisher Pilbeam
From the Far West website:
Western. Wuxia. WILD.
Imagine: A fantasy world, but not one based on Medieval/Dark Ages European culture and myth, but rather one based on the tropes of the Spaghetti Western and Chinese Wuxia. Add steampunk elements. Mix well.
This is the second update from Joseph Lewis, chief instigator of the collaborative project, “The Drifting Isle Chronicles.” We first heard from Joe when he was introducing the project, which he updated earlier this year. We have since heard from some of the other collaborators on the project, including Charlotte English, Katherine Tomlinson, and MeiLin Miranda. In this update, Joe shares how the project has gone and what the team is up to next!
This is the fifth in a series of interviews regarding “The Drifting Isle Chronicles” shared world project. In this interview, we meet another of the collaborating authors, MeiLin Miranda, who shares her thoughts on DRM, collaborative worldbuilding, and something called an “angler bug.”
