Character Short Stories
« on: March 18, 2005, 12:15:59 PM »

Fellow Feistians,

I am thinking about writing a short story ( for my own private use ) about a certain number of characters.

Specifically (as I am re reading Magician) Squire Roland after he leaves Crydee with Arutha.

Th reason for this is that he was a semi prominent character in the book until that point and little ( I wont tell ) happens or is heard about him.

The story would contain his live loves and emotions of going back home.

Does anyone else think this is a good idea and do I need REF's permission if I were to post it at Honest Johns once its finished?

I'm not sure of the legalities regarding posting fan-fiction on the Hall... best bet would be to PM one of the Admins.

Nice idea though.

I think you can't write stories about characters from feist his books. A parody is ok, but not a normal story.
If you want to be sure, ask a mod or admin.

Not allowed. You are not allowed to write anything that is based on Feist's world and put it online.

A short story like you suggested would be great to read, unless it has Rays permission we are not allowed to publish any type of fan fiction unless it is an obvious parady (Ray allows this).

You are free to write it privately (I believe), but not legally allowed to distribute it, as thats when the copyright laws are broken.

Would it possible for the Hall to get permission to post a copy of Profit and the Grey Assassin? I'm not sure if the question has ever been put to Ray regarding releasing that particular short story online.

Sure, it's highly unlikely... but wouldn't it be nice :smile:

I have to admit it would be good to be able to post Profit and Gray Assassins online. Not sure whether Ray would give us permission though.

The best way to get ahold of ray is to join the Feistfans list, (info here), and ask him your question.

We do have his e-mail address, but you've a better chance of getting a question answered on the list than by e-mailing him personally.

As for legality, we've already talked to Ray about it a long time ago and he won't give you his permission to make any fan story except for a parody. So we can't keep you from actually doing it (though I strongly advise you not to), but we can't have it advertised here at all, per our original agreement with Ray on this issue.

As for having Profit and Gray Assassins online here...I can't imagine he'd let us distribute it for free. We might ask him about some sort of affiliate thing though, where we could sell it VIA the hall.
