So, out of boredom and a desire to improve my writing skills, I've started writing a story. Specifically, a novelization of Star Legends, from the view point of a Ex-Marine Commando named Vance Dawes. The First Chapter is up now, covering a little background and the story of the demo level. I'm taking a degree of creative liberty with the story, as SL current format doesn't lend itself well to a novelization. Please read it and tell me what you think.
In addition, I need/want help developing character names for some of Vance's mercenary comrades, especially operative and engineers. If you have a suggestion, post it here, please. EDIT: Please feel free to develop your own character, instead of sticking to the classic SL trio. I do need a few more engineers, but send me ideas for snipers, assassins, Mode soldiers, guerrilla fighters, ex-pirates, and any other characters you can think of. Blackstar is a more diverse story then Star Legends, and it needs a cast with as much diversity as it can. Also, I don't only need ideas for Vance's friends. Come up with ideas for a few of his enemies as well.
Finally, I would appreciate any feedback you can give me, good or bad. Feel free to be as critical as you want, you're not going to crush my hopes and dreams and make me stop writing by pointing out errors. Unless you're one of the Devs with a Cease-and-desist letter. That might do some damage.

New update: Chapter 3 is due by the end of the week (again). Blasted finals.
I've made a major decision regarding the long term goal for my novel. Instead of having one book contain the entire story of SL, I'm going to break it up between two. The current novel will be re-titled, and will be about the events of Dynastar to Shipyard. The second book will be about the Scorn war and the aftermath of that conflict. A third book is not impossible, but unlikely.
