Hey, guys! It's Rob Price here. First and foremost, a big and bad-assed shout out to you fella's who've taken the Norns into your hearts and your minds! Despite what Chris tells you, it's him that has done most of the leg work with our little MechWarrior fables. I write stuff when I get the time, which ain't often at the moment!
We do game all our battles, and it's me playing the Norns.We stop after each round to note down who has hit whom, take a slurp of beer and chuckle about some of the crazy tactics we're trying on each other. Problem is, at the moment, I'm working 6 days out of every 7. Which is a bitch. Volume 6 is proving to be problematic but Chris and I have written a ton of stuff for it! It's up to the Master Editor (Nuclear Fridge) to edit the frack out of it.
He'll do it. He's Chris. He sorts out my cracked ideas.One thing I've only just realised upon re-reading "Reaction Time" again and we'd both missed it was at the start when Ingrid hears 'someone howling in agony' was obviously Val at work with his combat knife on the guy who hit him with the hand flamer. How the heck did we miss that one? I'll leave it you fella's to work out where Tyler stuck the blade in!
Anyways, couple of questions for you guys...
Popandchips: Thanks for your replies dude! Gotta ask you a question. I seem to remember Chris telling me that you're ex-Navy, like me. Or did I imagine it? Love your comment about 'Point Commander Corpse'! Top man!
DBrentOGara: You, Sir, are a gentleman. You've fallen in love with Ingrid as much as I have! And, yes, to answer your question, Ingrid and Valentine will have a lot more screen time together. Frack, I'd invented Ingrid and the whole Clan Tyler. I think you'll like the episode of "Clan Spaniel". And "Dakota". And "Fall from the deep". And "Trading day". Think I may have used too many ands...
DrOfDemonology: First contact. Chris speaks highly of you, dude. Wait until you read Val and Adele's exchange at the start of 'Persistence at Rest'. Think you'll like it brother! It's not often I can get Chris laughing at something I've written!
Hope you got the e mail from Chris regarding the moment back in the nineties when Tyler finally came into focus for me. I literally had three things: a surname, a Crusader and a Sternsnacht. Then the mean old bald bastard broke through the fourth wall and has been getting me into more scrapes than I care to mention...The-Colonel-382: "Bore da" (Welsh for good morning as I'm writing this at 00.15 hours). Like you, buddy, Yesukai's reaction in "Highlander Fling" left me actually stunned. Chris, as is his wont, smiled at me and told me that he'd written something that 'might catch me off guard'. My jaw literally hit the keyboard when I read that!
Oh, and like you, I'm always drawn to the characters that seem to be bouncing along rock bottom with no obvious chance of redemption. Yesukai's path ain't going to be easy is all I'm saying 'cos I've just seen some bits Chris has written...
To everybody who has read the continuing (mis)adventures of the Norns, thanks a lot from both of us in Wales that seems to have been transported into the Arctic circle!
P.S. One of you has got it right about who 'liberates' something very big!
P.P.S. Take care guys. Respect.
