View Full Version : Temeraire - LBP style

12-15-2014, 10:16 PM

today i have finished the last published book of the novels: Temeraire. if you don't know what it's about;

it's a story based both fantasy and alternate history: the epic events of the Napoleonic Wars with dragons, manned by crews of aviators. a story mixed with field, navy and aerial battles, and a lot of unpredictable plot twists.

long story short:
The series of books revolves around the primary characters Temeraire and Captain William Laurence. Captain Laurence is a member of the British Royal Navy, serving in combat against Napoleon's navy when he recovers a dragon egg unlike any other known to the British. The egg soon hatches, and Temeraire, a Chinese dragon, is born. Under the impression that an "unharnessed" dragon will become feral and unmanageable, Laurence becomes Temeraire's companion. Despite the difficulties this causes, Laurence begins to think of the dragon as his dearest friend. This forces a change in the sailor's life, drawing him from the prestigious Royal Navy to the less desirable Royal Aerial Corps.

best novels ever, if you ask me :p and i read quite a lot, and know many stories. but Temeraire is something else i have never seen before, and i truly love the characters. i have the need to continue my time with Temeraire, so i was thinking...

how awesome would a re-creation of the whole novels be on LBP?!?! i'm totally down for it, from the hatching till the wars in Russia, all of it could be made into linear levels in LBP. Temeraire deserves it :p

has anyone else readed the books of Temeraire, and if so, are you willing to help me out? because honestly, i am very motivated, i will at least make novel 1 as a level, and see if people like it.

Never heard of it, but it sounds neat.

It's like... 'How to Train Your Dragon', but during Napoleon's time, rather than a Norse age.

I myself do not have the time to help, but i would like to see how this turns out!

There is no way you could make an entire novel in to one level. Just being honest bro. I would love to help someone but I'm so caught up in my own levels, that I'm bouncing back and forth between, that I'd need an immense amount of help before I would be free.

sure can! at least the main events in summary~ i have been thinking a lot about it today and i already have a planning of how and what. most of the story happends in the same place/area anyhow, so it won't be much of a problem. for now i'm just looking at other levels to get an idea how to make things look fancy and fit into the theme of the story, then i will try my best :p
i will post screenshots if doing so. might take a while tho, i got more stuff going on
