Original One-Day NPC Concept
« on: April 01, 2004, 01:41:51 AM »
On February 13, 2004, I made the following announcement:

Every so often somebody asks me "How long did it take to write Kelsey?" or "How long have you been writing the Nalia romance?" and I answer "a very long time."

And then I sit and think about that, and realize that quite a lot of work gets done if I just sit down and work all day on something. The Banter Packs were written in just a few busy weekends, basically.

So I asked myself... "Knowing what I know by now, how thorough of an NPC could I make in one day, start to finish?"

So I'm going to find out, on Sunday, when I will write and release an NPC in one day, before I go to bed in any case.

I'm not organizing this as an Iron Modder-style "contest", although I certainly welcome others joining me in the exercise and making it a sort of international holiday. Or festival. (Celebration? Something.) I'll be happy to put any fellow One-Day NPC(tm) projects up for hosting.


Between then and now, five One-Day NPCs have been released, all by different authors.

I should hope so. I used up all of my free time (24 hours worth  ;)   ) to get my girl finished and released. It was a challenge for me since I can never stick to doing one project at once. I tend to bore easy.

igi seems to be blazing the trails there, with his Game-Be-Gone series.

At least, I really hope he's not working more than a day. :)
