    Default Who will "write" the introduction to book 7?

    I think Roy pretty clearly gets the recap, but we're out of Order members for the introduction. I feel like Blackwing and Thor are both pretty solid possibilities, but I'm curious about other peoples's thoughts.

    Didn't Xykon, like Redcloak and Miko, already do one of them?

    Blackwing or Minrah would be my guess.

    Redcloak did OOPCs, and Miko did SOD. And Thog did GDGU.

    It's possible Rich will have a real person write it again. Maybe Mrs Giant?

    Probably the major character who has only appeared on 1 page in the entire OOTS saga.

    My money is on Minrah, that way each member of the order does one of the main books.

    My monopoly money is on Psteve the psion.

    My fake monopoly money is n James Earl Jones, because he used to do those commercials for the phone book, and Rich sad book seven may be as thick as a phone book.

    I like your reasoning for Minrah.

    I don't think Minrah is a member of the Order. She's a follower of Durkon.

    I dunno, I don’t think it would be very popular.

    I don't think they've even directly spoken to each other.

    Also, I don't see Rich using the follower mechanic ever.

    It doesn't fit well into not-actually-game narration where people do things because of of motivations, not because someone else bought a feat. I can see (maybe) a one off gag where someone tells a stranger "pack our bags, I'm sending you into grave danger for a cause that has nothing to do with you; btw, I just got the leadership feat."

    Also, its one more specific D&D mechanic that Rich wouldn't want to have to introduce.

    They had a whole arc talking with each other and then with Thor, to the point Durkon convinced Minrah to give up Valhalla and return to the mortal realm. And in the commentary for Utterly Dwarfed Rich basically spelled out that Minrah is a cohort for Durkon, even if he's not following the rules enough to use those terms.

    I mean, in UD author commentary Rich straight out said that Minrah is basically a cohort of Durkon, so...

    She has talked to Durkon a ton and not to anyone else in the Order. She’s there because of him and Thor, not because she knows or cares about the team or Royz

    Well, she did have that strip with Belkar. But she will need to spend more time with Elan than just what we saw at the end of the book.

    Minrah is a plausible choice. But she's not a member of the Order, she's like a touring guitarist.

    I stand corrected. I stupidly only double checked the sections where Durkon was alive, forgetting what genre I was reading.
