I had (and have) a laundry list of things that I wanted to include in the site I planned to call “Thieves’ World Forever” and because it was a laundry list, I never felt ready to create the site.
Last weekend at SoonerCon I realized that the goalposts were in constant motion and if I waited until I thought I knew enough to do everything myself, well…there’d never be a site.
So, rather than having some grand unveiling–the Athena bursting out of Zeus’ forehead option–I’m trying something completely different: I’m asking for help up-front.
The site is http://thievesworldforever.com . It’s a WordPress-based site, just like this blog, Closed Circle, and Seeking North…because I think WordPress is robust and extensible enough to handle my laundry list. More importantly, it’s collaborative. Conceptually, my model is Eric Flint’s 1632 community with a twist or two (a French knot, perhaps, or a colonial one).
Now I’m looking for a few volunteers to help me turn a laundry list into reality.
