One of the things that I have done to practice my wordcraft is to fictionalize my role playing game sessions. While it keeps me writing, it doesn't help me much with some of the more challenging technical aspects of writing such as pacing and plot. It has lead me to conclude that I might be better suited to collaborative writing where I do the "script" and someone else works out the plot.

My first such RPG novelization was a Klingon RPG session from college in the 80s based on a FASA module.

An Imbalance of Power.

Then, for a while, I was playing a mage character in a Vampire: The Masquerade RPG.

The Magus Chronicles.

In the steampunk genre, I was involved in a Deadlands RPG for a while.

Deadlands RPG Episode One.

The character in the Deadlands game named Zebulon Vitruvius Pike is not the same as it was. Where in Deadlands, Pike was a mad scientist, the character of Pike as I see him now is a hero of dime novels and penny dreadfuls. I would like to expand on that and try writing stories for the current incarnation of Pike but I feel I need to hone my craft further.

In the Deadlands stories, I used some of the language of the period but mostly based on my remembered reading of Wells and Verne when I was younger. I want to sit down and read some period dime novels to get a better sense of the language.
