Rhianna

Your novella "Child of the Chaos" is not sold alone. We can't buy it in a bookstore.
Only the people who can buy the Digital Jesters copy of Beyond Divinity can read it.

Think about all the Beyond Divinity fans in the world who would love to read it too !

Could it be possible to copy the pages of the novella and to add them to the Beyond Divinity web site ?

By this way all the people could be able to read your novella online.

Thanks

Barta

I wonder would larian object to a pdf made up of the novella!

Probably...I wouldn't dream of doing it without asking, of course!

*sigh* I agree with Barta.

If you ever wanted to know the *real* name of the divine one read the book.

You can buy the fanpack separately from the game. That contains the novella and a CD of Kirill's music. It's sold on this website and on the DJ one (there's an ad on Larian's homepage I think) So there is no need to buy the game twice

Yeap the novella was great! I only feel sad about people who can not purchase it and thus they will not have any chance to read it. Pretty shame

You have to read it before starting

It short of connects the two games + . But even if you do not read it you can play without any problems.

The Larians have said the novella would be available to order from their web site for a nominal fee.

I agree with Raze a PDF would mean that Larian will miss out on some "sweet coin" or as I call it some sweet bling bling. Maybe they could release it 4 weeks before the release of ˛

I ordered the audio but i screwed up the order sheet. I live in the USA, and where it said county I put my county 'Will'(never been asked for a county when ordering and ive ordered alot of stuff) Well it seems that in Europe they refer to 'states' as 'counties'. It didnt ask for a state anywhere and I didn't notice that as i ordered. It already shipped to Hopefully i can get it delivered here somehow, i already let DJ know.

I don't want to play the demon now, but the novella can't be put online as a pdf, it has author copyrights.

I ordered from them too. I had to look twice at the order form and make sure I was reading it correctly. It's so easy to mis-read things these days now that we live in this 'global' society. I'm sure they will get it all straightened out. I haven't received my packages yet but I only ordered them a little over a week ago.

Can't wait to read the novella. A story/series I wrote is being turned into an interactive fiction game so I'm extremely curious to see how closely Rhianna's novella follows the game's [interpretation]. It's a whole new world out there and I'm loving it!!

Quote:

Duration of copyright
The 1988 Copyright, Designs and Patents Act states the duration of copyright as;
For literary, dramatic, musical or artistic works
70 years from the end of the calendar year in which the last remaining author of the work dies, or, if the work is of unknown authorship: 70 years from end of the calendar year in which the work was created, or if made available to the public in that time, (by publication, authorised performance, broadcast, exhibition, etc.), 70 years from the end of the year that the work was first made available.




So lets say she lives 50 - 60 years + 70 years copyright = 130/140 years till the novella can go online

w00t (it a nice read the novella I read it 3 times )
