Having talked with Davidov about this, you'll be happy to know that the story won't be changed so much. However, it would have to be a little more historically accurate. Which means, for example, no green Pumas. There'll probably be a Puma in there, but I know for certain that the drivers will be good German men (I'm going to nominate one from München and one from Essen, but that's just me), not a hobbit and a leprechaun!!TPMM wrote:You mean a lot of new words and a lot of... everything?
Can't wait to :]
Excuuuuuuuse me - how more Germanic can you GET than small stunted people...the Dwarf Caverns in Hasel, the many caves in the Harz Mountains and Hohenstein reputed to be the home of dwarves and mine kobolds over the centuries...even Alberich the Nibelung Dwarf that forges the Ring in Wagner's Ring Cycle!!!but I know for certain that the drivers will be good German men (I'm going to nominate one from München and one from Essen, but that's just me), not a hobbit and a leprechaun!!
You'll note that my two drivers are Frodo and Sam. Neither of them is named Gimli, or anything similar. Germanic, they ain't!phylo_roadking wrote:You should be standing up (on a box) for the rights of Germanic "little people"!
While David has done a fine job with all the tales, this one more than the others (well, except maybe one or two) comes closest to a real story about the war in Prussia. It'd probably be the easiest to turn into an actual historical novel. Of course, that's just my opinion, which has been shared with David repeatedly!Why this tale and not one of the previous others?
