Default SDCC Michael Stackpole questions

Danny Perschonok will interview Michael Stackpole at San Diego Comic Con on Saturday.

I'll provide him a few questions, but will fit in a few community-submitted questions.

Do you have any questions about the World of Warcraft: Vol'jin, Shadows of the Horde novel?

Mike Stackpole Interview here:

The SDCC Blizzard Panel will be uploaded here.

The interview will be available as a video.
Is there a prerequisite that has to be met before Bwonsamdi can claim a soul?
Do (all) the other Loa also claim souls?

(I know, he probably can't answer those, but I don't have others, right now.)

Runes

What did he think of writing a troll versus a typical fantasy protagonist?

Can you ask Sean the same questions? He usually answers to you.

How was it writing your first Warcraft novel?

What areas and characters of warcraft have you found yourself interested in? Would you be interested in developing them into further novels? What would you be interested in writing about?

One common theme in reviews of your work is just how character focused the novel is. How did you go about developing characterisation for pre-developed characters as well as new characters?

After what many felt was a character focused novel would you rather continue writing such novels, or would you prefer a more action/story based approach in the future?

You have mentioned in previous interviews that you felt uncomfortable with the heavily Horde based development of the storyline, to the point where you wrote in a human character. Was this a response to Vol'jin's role as a faction leader, the faction war backstory, or do you just generally feel uncomfortable writing a novel from only one perspective?

(A common concern regarding warcraft's story is the lack of strong, heroic female characters, and to many this latest book continues that. Did you find having a mainly male cast to write about an issue?)

I think I'll wrap up questions by Tuesday, or Wednesday. I'll add my questions after, and email the whole batch to Danny. Interview is scheduled for Saturday, July 20th at the San Diego Convention Center.

I'll embed the video on this same thread. No need to create a new one. What's the BBcode to embed YouTube videos? Last time I tried it didn't work.

We've heard you sat down and played WoW quite a bit after beginning the writing of this book. What race and/or class are your characters, if you care to tell us?

It's one thing to have problems and voice your concerns, but when you endlessly bitch day in and day out about the same tired old shit, it honestly makes me wonder why you are even here. Generally when somebody doesn't like something, they stop caring about it.

And on that note, SoL is a forum I no longer enjoy. So, I'm done here. And I genuinely think the people who have absolutely nothing at all positive to say about the game and, the people whose posts are composed entirely of whining, really consider leaving (or at least sticking to non-WoW sections). Because if you truly get no enjoyment out of WoW, then why are you here?

With that said, goodbye.

Hi everyone, Danny here. I hope everyone enjoys the interview. This is the first time I've done anything like this so I was a little nervous. If you have any comments on things I can do differently in the future please let me know. Sorry if the quality isn't the best, I used my iPhone's voice recorder to capture the whole thing.

Thanks to Medievaldragon getting this set up and giving me this opportunity.

Actually, Naka is a username of Danny Perschonok who interviewed Mike Stackpole in this video. He asked the SOL questions I forwarded him. He did a pretty good job. Thank you, Danny (Naka).

My response seemed automated? Weird. I'm the real deal. I figured I would respond here since I know this is where Medievaldragon got some of the questions. I registered a while ago, I just never posted.

Relax, the bots becoming sentient and increasingly life-like is a bit of a running gag 'round these parts.

I'm like, 76% sure you're not a bot.

Well, we have had quite a few intelligent bots lately, so many tend to call new posters bots.
