Hey, Privateer Press just posted an article I wrote about writing non-human characters in a fantasy setting, specifically the militant skorne from their Iron Kingdoms IP. It’s kind of a companion piece to the novelette they released last Friday “Sacred Charge” (also authored by yours truly). Check out the article or the novelette in the links above.
I promise I’ll stop all this self-promotional nonsense very soon and return you to my regularly scheduled rejections.
Well done! I really enjoyed writing non-human POV, both for Privateer and for Paizo. Inter-species romance was a big hit. Anything’s possible with magic, but when your lover if venomous…now that’s a problem!
Thanks, Chris. To this point, I haven’t been called on to write any skorne romances, interspecies or otherwise. Though, it would be interesting to see how their caste system and fatalistic world view would affect something like that.
