I know it's been a while since the last post by I thought your story was very interesting and wanted to let you know!
I was just thinking about the boomerang idea and though: what was Brad's purpose for it and how did he come to get it? Did he spend some time in Australia and grew fond of the native Aborigine weapon or is there some other back story ('cause you don't usually
end up with a weapon like it!) And by purpose I mean how dose he use it, because I couldn't see it taking out any enemy's; not easily anyway!
One more thing, Rod, I think the premise of the character is great but, and this is just my
opinion, I feel he would suite the weaker sikekick type profile better: like Marcus (LC) or Jonathan (The Mummy). Though it is a bit of a cliché, it works and lets our hero really step up to the plate action wise- then towards the end Rod could have a hero
moment and fight back, further developing his character!
P.S. I am writing an Indesque adventure story/series like you and the main villain in one of them is named Brad: A Soviet scientist who is intreeged by the prospects of finding Excalibur and leading his country to victory; under his comand of course! (P.P.S. My story is a bit of a Cold War spy type thing (ala the original 007 novels) aswell as an Indesque adventure- in a way, kinda like KOTCS (Just if ya wanted to know!)
