September 13, 2006: One More Dragon PostI am delighted to report that the Temeraire series (His Majesty's Dragon and sequels) has been optioned for film by Peter Jackson. For details, read author Naomi Novik's happy blog post.
I am delighted about this, because it means the series will get the support it deserves and the author will get a pot of money - even if no film ever happens, Jackson's interest will draw a lot of attention and the option fee was no doubt respectable. So yay.
To those who have been asking whether, if I like the series so much, I would try to do a game . . . I think it's safe to assume that the property has now been priced out of the hobby game market. But the odds of a really spiffy digital game have gone up.
And if you want to roleplay it, buy the books in the series, refer to GURPS Dragons and GURPS Age of Napoleon, with a little GURPS China on the side . . . and there you have it!
