I'm going to go ahead and anticipate a question, because it's one I get asked fairly frequently (or, rather, people just get confused fairly frequently and guess, and are usually wrong).

My name. de Bie.

Indeed, my last name has that little space in it. It's French, or Dutch, depending on your definition, derived from my Huguenot ancestors (a few centuries ago, Dutch people living in France to avoid religious persecution, running back and forth, etc.). It's a version of the French meaning "of the cleft," which can be translated as "of the mountains / hills," since my paternal ancestors were horse thieves who descended (you guessed it), from the hills to menace the towns of France.

Pronounciation: deh (like "duh," except a little more elegant sounding) bee (as in the insect).

I've gotten everything from Debbie to Deb to de Bi (a comment on sexuality, perhaps?) to DeBri, to DesBris (RAS?). I turn away solicitors looking for a "Debbie Eric who lives here?"

Well met

Thank ye for the explanation, Erik, it certainly made me chuckle.

I believe that thy novel is based on a Prestige Class? We you assigned this particular PrC by WotC or did ye have a choice? In addition, where there any other specifics which ye were told to include within the story?

Welcome Erik.

Where in the Realms is Ghostwalker set?

I'm not really up on PrC's, (and I don't have my Realms resources to hand at the moment), so what can you tell us about Ghostwalkers?

Thanks for your time.

Lord Rad

I had a choice among half a dozen fighter-type prestige classes, some from the Realms, some from the basic D&D universe. Ghostwalker was my choice. I was tempted to do a Purple Dragon Knight, since I'm quite keen on the ideals of knighthood and whatnot, but I didn't think the best way to start my Realms writing would be with a book called "Purple Dragon." (It sounds like an FR heretic to say this, but it carries some unpleasant associations for those who aren't in the know. Big Purple dinosaur.)

Ghostwalker is set in and around Quaervarr, which is in the Moonwood, about thirty miles north-by-northeast (I believe) of Silverymoon, in the Silver Marches. Rugged frontier landscape, separate from civilization, streak of independence; central to the western-ish feel of the novel.

Ghostwalker is a prestige class from Sword and Fist (don't think it's been reprinted in 3.5, but who knows?), describing a warrior who is dark, mysterious, and terribly anonymous. His powers are derived from an eerie mysticism / connection with the ethereal realm, and they're all based around his uncanny resolve. He can paralyze his opponents with a glance and a word, he can walk through shadows, he can take on ghostly form, and (the hallmark of the class) against an opponent who has previously injured him (down to 50% of his hit points) he can call upon what's known as "painful reckoning," infusing himself with uncanny strength and speed (translates to +1/class level on attack, damage, and AC against that opponent). So a 5th level ghostwalker would have +5, a 10th level +10, etc, etc. All his abilities, however, go away if his true name is known to an opponent, which is why he is inherently a loner.

It's really a cool prestige class -- a kind of lone avenger, the shadowy figure who appears on the fringes of town to pursue justice or vengeance, good or evil, which is exactly the feel I'm going for in the novel.

For another take on ghostwalkers, you can check out James Davis, who's writing Bloodwalk, which also features a ghostwalker. He'd have his own take on it.

Sounds like a cool novel, Erik... High Plains Drifter in the Realms?

All of the Fighters novels are based around interesting prestige classes. Son of Thunder is non-standard in that it doesn't have the class as a name. Unlike Erik, I wasn't given any choices. I won't reveal what the prestige class is, but I had to modify it so extensively to fit my needs that I suspect few readers will actually realize what it is, anyway. I guarantee it won't harm the enjoyment of the novel.

Indeed, that's one of the movies I usually pull out to describe it. Also Kill Bill, Tombstone, and Unforgiven, with just a dash of Matrix-style action and mysticism reminiscent of Crouching Tiger. Largely western-style, with swords and sorcery.

That said, there isn't a vast abundance of spellslingers in Ghostwalker. Mostly toe-to-toe warriors who may or may not have magic at their disposal -- in keeping with it being a "Fighters" novel.

None of those movies, by the way, necessarily describe anything about the plot or the themes I'm going for -- it's just my indirect style of fashion of describing the "feel" without revealing, well, anything, really. I should keep it a mystery, because that's what it is.

Sounds good -- the Prestige class will just be a mystery, eh? Guess I'll have to read and find out.

Not strictly a mystery, but I don't want to reveal too much just yet. I also introduced a secondary character he's a more conventional version of this class (it comes from Masters of the Wild, if anybody's curious). Let's say that, in this instance, I don't think the prestige class will be the book's main point of interest, but rather the fact that it's the first novel about the Uthgardt. Everyone loves Uthgardt, right?

Oh, and plus it'll be probably the Realms novel in which Sememmon has the largest role.

I know I love the Uthgardt. Ever since Wulfgar showed up in that one guy's writing (), I've been intrigued by them, and wanted someone to do a work that focused on them. This makes me look forward to Son of Thunder even more.

And Sememmon, who's just cool.

Thanks, Murray, for the info.

Anyone have more questions for me? I can ramble about my writing for days at a time, if it please you.

P.S. If anyone else has seen that picture of me on WotC, yes, that is a real sword, and yes, it's done in the English style of the 12th-14th century or so.

You know, I almost sent in a picture as well when Phil said they could post one on the announcement and the picture I considered also involved swords (and daggers and battle axes and etc....I have a living room wall covered in weapons). On reflection those two pictures side by side would have been uncanny, lol!

Sememmon eh? What is his current situation? Did he just go missing after being pushed out of the Zhentarim by Fzoul?

Is this story to be set in the current timeline?

::drool::

Oh, and i'm looking forward to reading about the Uthgardt too, it'll be nice to get gritty and dirty for a change

Yes and yes. I believe it will actually take place a tiny bit before the current timeline (before Forsaken House, for instance), just because I needed it to take place in the autumn.

Sememmon and his evil elf ladylove Ashemmi quit Darkhold and went into exile after Fzoul tightened his hold on the Zhentarim. But Sememmon is not without his resources, and, you'll discover, still retains some contacts within the Western Zhentarim at the very least.

But why not discuss this on my scroll, rather than Erik's?

Only a couple.

"The Greater Treasure," assuming I don't end up rewriting the whole story, chronicles the adventure of an elven treasure hunter to find a certain artifact. Joining him on his quest are his ruthless, sorcerous sister and a mysterious, alluring lady thief. Along the way, he must confront his own soul in order to determine which is more important to him: love or honor, family or self.

It's still in first draft form, but that's the general gist. A little sword play, a little magic, some demons -- everything that makes the Realms memorable.

Cheers

This lady thief an elf as well? And what subrace is the brother/sister combo?

Demons? Daemonfey?

When is your draft due? I figured the story might be a work in progress with the publication date still some time off.

All three are elves. I do so love the race, with its myriad subraces. Brother and sister are suns, children of Evermeet, the thief a moon, child of the wide Realms.

Now that would just be telling. My only hint on the subject is that, in addition to Richard's Forsaken House, I admire Monte Cook's Book of Vile Darkness a great deal. You'll see what I mean.

One last question to answer or parry (good wording there)...Is this story to be set in current Realms time?

I'm quite susceptible to a good charm, but I'm not giving really big teasers either. . . or am I?

In regard to timeline, I'll just say that the stories in RotE can be set in any timeline up to the present, from the distant past (very significant to elves) to the Last Mythal. My story coincides with another, somewhat important event of the last, oh, I don't know, forty years? Let's say, second half of the 14th century.

Guess that doesn't narrow it down much.

Well even a whisper can seem like a shout when one has received nothing but silence so far on a matter.

Gee, that almost made authors sound like the Spider Queen being silent from her followers.

I hoped they would cover a sweeping period of time like the Realms of the Dragons anthology. I also hope like that tome actual dates are shown at the start of each story.

Since I know almost nothing about the messenger, I'll have to say the charm. It's great that you've taken a keen interest.

For those who are curious, I've started up a new blog over on livejournal, with a little biographical info about me and some more stuff about my writing. Find it at: www.livejournal.com/users/eriksdb

The interest is fueled when someone is friendly and polite. You are both, which often is too often a rarity online. I look forward to reading some of your work come May.

A very nice blog. My sympathy towards being separated from your wife. I had to deal with that myself several years back.

Always nice to see an author with a sword in his hand. The artist's skill with a sword is something I prefer to know before commenting on his/her work.

And as for Ill eviscerate you in fiction! Sounds like something someone named Chaucer once said.
