Rhom Posted August 17, 2022 Author Share Posted August 17, 2022 Given the legal kerfluffle surrounding this new series, I know this book very obviously wasn't put together in a board room... but man, there are parts of it that really feel like a bunch of people sat around a conference table with polling data and said "Lets do this..." Spoiler Suit 1: Okay folks... its been a while since we had a Dragonlance book. Lets talk ways to get back on the shelves. Lets brainstorm here. What do you have? Young Suit: What if we get a trendy author to basically just rewrite the original trilogy but with an edgier modern flare? Suit 2: We tried that with Jim Butcher a decade ago. Won't work. Suit 1: Come on people. Who are our most popular DragonLance characters? Stats Carrying Suit: Our metadata says people like Sturm, Raistlin, and Tasslehoff. Suit 1: Okay. Lets make a series of books about them. Skeptical Suit: Ummm... one problem sir... two of them are dead. Suit 1: Dead you say? Are you sure? Skeptical Suit: Pretty sure... in fact, Sturm's death scene was the thing the fans liked the most about him. Suit 1: Details. I've heard people like when dead heroes come back to life. Suit 2: Okay. What else do people like? Young Suit: People seem to like the Huma story... Suit 2: Okay perfect. We will write a book about Raistlin and Sturm and their adventures with humans. Skeptical Suit: Sir... its not humans... its Huma... Huma Dragonsbane... Suit 1: Exactly. Get the AI to write that and we'll get it out next week. Good work people.
