I just thought I'd start a discussion:

What are you reading right now?

Would you recommend it to others?

Does it have anything that might inspire new game content? (And I mean "inspire", not what can we plagiarize!) ;)

I'm reading Michael J. Sullivan's series called Legends of the First Empire. It's set in a fantasy world called Elan, about which he has written two previous series, both set 3000 years later. This series, still being written, tells the true story behind legendary figures and events mentioned in the previous series, and the founding of what becomes the main religion of the later days (earlier works).

I love this writer! He's a fantastic storyteller. If you like fantasy, give these books a try!

The way the current series is showing how different legend and truth can be is inspiring me to start working through some ideas on the game's backstory, including The Shadow Church, Kazaul, and Elythara. We'll see if any of that ever gets into the game!

I like the Lone Wolf Saga app better.

Reading now? Nothing.

Have read? Atlas Shrugged.

Inspirations? Objectivism and Libertarianism remind me already of alot of themes already in this game, so more would be even better, I like to have the choice to disobey if I want to - instead of the state/remgard suppressing the right to choose.
