Thoughts on Three

So I had been thinking that I would tell the same story in three different media -- the Seven Day Quest as a game, a comic, and a novel.

But now I'm thinking maybe a trilogy -- three separate adventures for Rodney: a seven day quest, a one day quest, and a thirty day quest. Something of course tying them together.

I think it will work better. The nature of the game is that Rodney is going to be on his own. But a novel where it's just Rodney fighting monster after monster would just be incredibly dull. By creating three separate stories, I can optimize each story to its especial medium.

But I will keep the progression in place -- the end of the game will bridge to the comic, the end of the comic will bridge to the book.
