The Road to NaNoWriMo 2016 – Part 5: And Who Might You Be?

As the plot slowly comes together, let’s have a quick look at some of its main players, as well as their roles in this undoubtedly epic tale that is about to unfold! For, while the alien invasion and the fight against it will be the story’s major event, the characters of course have their own storylines that will develop throughout the story.

Just as a reminder: various time periods with exist simultaneously in this story’s world, allowing for those mentioned below – among others – to take place at the same time. Also, I won’t be revealing the characters’ names as of yet – partly to prevent spoilers, partly for reasons I choose to withhold at the moment >:) – and will be referring to them by ‘code names.’

The Knight”
A knight from the medieval kingdom of Scotland who has proven himself to be one of the most powerful, valiant and loyal warriors in the kingdom. His king has sent him on a mission critical to his land’s future and its long-lasting conflict with the English, but this mission will bring with it much greater consequences than he, or anyone, could have foreseen.

While the rugged and stubborn knight has unquestionable devotion to and pride for his kingdom and heritage, he has a penchant for using more exotic weaponry and combat disciplines over the more traditional Scottish ones, something which might prove to come in useful in the journey ahead.

The Kingpin”
Starting out as a small-time Colombian drug dealer, the kingpin has rapidly risen to the top of the international drug trade and now, a decade from the turn of the twentieth century, heads one of the most successful and powerful drug cartels the world has ever seen. Lately, rivals have been encroaching onto the cartel’s territory, which will have major repercussions, even beyond the criminal underworld.

Charismatic, flamboyant and ruthless to the outside world, beneath an impeccably fashionable exterior, the kingpin hides a rarely seen gentler side, a side that is a closely kept secret, but which an encounter with a certain individual from across the sea may just bring to the surface.

The Tower”
This massive and mysterious being has lived hidden in plain sight for ages, keeping itself alive on its very, specific diet. As the world faces one of its greatest challenges, the creature once more awakens and will be, without much doubt, the staunchest and most valuable ally the protagonists will have in the events to follow.

The Nyuu
Fine, you get one name, but one name only! ^_~ Yes, unless something better comes to mind, I’ve actually decided to go with this name for the story’s main antagonists. I’ve rather taken a liking to it. The Nyuu are an alien species who seek constant expansion of their territory and have chosen Earth to be their next target. Unlike many other invaders, though, their reason for conquest, is sports-based! Yes, in fact, their entire existence appears to be built around a specific competitive physical activity. This is not something one would easily deduce from witnessing their bizarre biological structure. I will conclude this section with a picture that will give very specific hints as to said biological structure while simultaneously telling very little about it, at all! Enjoy! ^_^

Just in case you needed a reminder that this story will be, odd…

And there we have it: the main cast of the story I will be wr… Alright, I’ll be calling it by its proper name from now on! Henceforth the story I will be writing for NaNoWriMo 2016 shall be known as: Pwnage! Odd? Absolutely! This was the name the fake manga premise received in the email wherein the story’s origin lies and I can’t bear to change it! It’s just, too stupid, togo much fun and thus way too awesome to not keep around, especially for a story like this! And so Pwnage it shall be!

Two days from NaNoWriMo 2016, everyone! I didn’t manage to come as far with the preparations as I’d hoped, but I’m not worried. There may be a lot of mist ahead of me, but like last year I’ll navigate myself right through it! Now to set up the novel on my NaNoWriMo account and we’re pretty much set to go! What more is there to say other than…

About

Ever since a group of shoes held a birthday party a long, long time ago (though in a galaxy not that far away) a little boy’s appreciation for creation was born. And so, throughout the following years shoes partied, a dinosaur travelled through time, oddly shaped football players went on adventures, a young wanderer became a knight, a comedian rose to godhood, Jedi fought an evil empire, a war between cyborg warlords and human-insect hybrids engulfed the world… The boy had learned how with only words on paper (and from times to time a few pictures) he was able to bring people, places, even entire worlds to life. By now that little boy has reached almost the third decade of his life and his love for telling stories has not ceased. And finally, long after he had planned to, he has decided to share these stories with the world. Whether you are a new or already familiar face: welcome to this little archive of mine! This is a place where I will, finally, actually be sharing my writing with others. It will feature pretty much anything I feel like sharing, both old and new stories, fan-fiction and original content, and probably some non-fiction added in at times. So, if you like reading, writing, stories (or me ^_~), drop by, drop a comment (I can’t promise I’ll get back to you quickly, since I’m horrible at that, but I’ll do my best) and, drop it like it’s hot. … Sorry… ^_^; In any case, I hope you’ll enjoy yourself and I look forward to seeing you around!

Who? Just your average descendant of two sea-faring peoples, recently graduated anthropology Master and aspiring author with a life-long passion for writing.

What? Uhm, human. I think... Also a bit crazy, but in a good way. I think...

Where? A land under the sea, far, far away. Occasionally with my head in the clouds.

Why? Trying to get both my work and my love for writing out there, sharing them with others and getting in touch with fellow writers, artists and other like-minded people.
