Yup .
It had to happen.
A story so full of plot twists it even caught one of my oldest friends flat footed...

"Odd beginning, odd twists and turns,
definately a different approach to the Old West.
Or fantasy. or something."

ok so, give me an opinion...would this mix even be possible...?
Just for curiosity ..

There is talk of a film version of Stephen King's 'The Dark Tower' in production.
That would fall into this genre.
Ever seen 'El Topo?"

It's more like Elves rounding up horses, rebuilding a ranch, and the odd wagon train. No goblins as of yet in the series.

No I hadn't seen those. Not a big fan of King. Closer to a rewrite of the Arthur tale with less empasis on magic as such. A dawn of knowlage over myth..Some 'critters' like the Dark Elves, rumored to be vampires, goblins and Trolls begin to appear in book 2. Book 1 is establishing lead characters and a bit of back ground, leading into other tales.

Big firefly fan. Steam punk items may appear as we develope. Pistol type cross bows and flintlock pepperboxes common tech at the start. J-Dub will encounter new stuff in diffrent books.

and there's a few ideas in here that may pop up..

Traveler 2 notes:
Arliss’s Quest
Five years ago, a fungus derived plague swept through the territories of the wood elves. A party of adventurers set out seeking a rare mineral dust that, when mixed with mulled wine, was said to be a cure. Amongst the thirty that made the trip was Arlene Ravenwood, a thirty year old huntress who was named the leader of the party’s security force. The group never returned; until now. Last month, one lone female survivor reached Mythron with news-the male members of the party were killed and the females taken prisoner and forced to work for the Drow as children’s caretakers.
Now, ignoring the advice of the elders, Arliss has set out to find her older sister, never realizing that near Tormin Castle events would take an interesting turn.
Meanwhile, Booth has his hands full. He must defend against Sarah’s very angry fiancé, while watching out for Bosun Beauchamp; while at the same time wondering if he can remain sane in the midst of Sarah’s wedding preparations.
Roy and the wagon team is preparing to return home to Gy-Huan. Before their horses are completely hitched, however, a disturbance in the underbrush draws their attention to a pale, haggard, and obviously exhausted young lady, who turns out to be a tired and beaten Arliss...

nt following anyone else's patterns on this one. some similarities may occur in the form of equipments, but that's about it. Take, if you will, the Arthur legend and set it in the Pyrnees mountains between France and Spain...I kinda figure the Bosque deserved a tail of their own, in a way.

Legend of the land:
In the old days , the land was in throes of conflict , as Dwarves, Elvon, and men sought to carve a place amidst Goblins, trolls and dragons.
King of the Elvon , Utheri, climbed the Pyron mountains and there built the city of Evelon. With time, he set out to pacify the land. Driving the evils of the world into hiding, he at last , after many years, found a measure of peace, to raise a family.
To him and his wife were born twin children, Artron, a son , and Morgania a daughter. Naming Regents of the North and South, he clearly noted the lands they would rule from an early age. At his passing at a ripe old age, his children took up the task of expanding the lands under their protection as wardens of civilization.
Morgiania’s followers met humans on the southern plains and quickly came to admire and friend them, oft times intermarrying freely. The Elvon of the North kept more to themselves, and while not illegal, by any means, mixed marriages here are frowned upon. The tanned skin of the warmer climes sets the Southerners apart at a glance. Unfortunately, there were issues with the migrations outward from the capital city.
A group of the Elvion people, having no desire to scale mountains, had broke off from Utheri, and gone into hiding. Rumored to have become creatures of the night, they became known as the Drow. Tales of vampirism follow them, though no proof has ever been found. They are said to live in the buffer zone between the Dwarven hills to the east, and the Elvon settlements to the west.
Dragons, the size of Mastiffs roam the hills of the Elvon home city. Contrary to legend, not as hostile as we are led to believe, and certainly not so ferocious to fight, though the fiery breath they do have is fearsome when they are angered…
Hill trolls are a common night time threat, as are rogues of all the races. Gnomes, not so small as we are led to believe, are remarkable for one trait: they consider Elvon and Humans a food, of great desirability. Goblins are, of course, a threat to all, as are the great bands of barbarians across the southern seas who practice cannibalism and slavery with abandon.

The discussion was about the possibility of the type, not the item in specific, but since discussion has strayed so far off cource, I may as wel toss te background out there. NOTE: this was not an ad to start out with if any moderators are out there.

These books kind of take place at a time where Mythology was starting to e displaced by scientific knowledge. Rumor and superstition still abound, but were gradually being replaced with fact. Still, things could seem dark to the uneducated...
Enter James William Booth, a half Elf Cavalry Scout with a grade 10 curiosity and a talent for solving problems...one way or another.
