Unda Vosari is a series of fantasy novels (most of which are in Development Hell) that started in 2010 with the release of Unda Vosari: Legends, by Brad Norsworthy. The (main) story (of the only released book) is about Captain Vincent Lorimar (and the crew of his ship, the Dark Vigil) trying to rescue his family, take down an evil baron and turn a profit in the process.Several other novels have been in Development Hell since the first book was finished in 2007, and an Expanded Universe series of (ongoing) short stories has been available online since January of 2011 (known as Unda Vosari: Chronicles). Other Interquel novels have been planned as well.
All-Powerful Bystander: Played straight in the original game the novels were based on - the author has admitted "Random Pirate #12" was, more or less, an amused God who wanted to watch the events unfold.
AntiHero: Almost the entire crew of the Dark Vigil are willing to do things most people would consider "evil" in order to achieve a greater good, not to mention the crew consists of pirates, thieves, traitors, vagabonds and exiles.
Cast Herd: The political characters and the "adventurers" split up towards the end of the first book so each group can do what they do best. The second book cements this. Unda Vosari: Chronicles also splits the characters up, and can be seen as part of the overall Cast Herd.
Kudzu Plot: And how. Issues of Unda Vosari chronicles introduce characters not seen for a few dozen issues later, and some of the dangling plot hooks and story threads from the beginning of the novel are brought back in entirely different story arcs to be resolved by characters in Unda Vosari: Chronicles that, at best, only had a cameo.
A rebellion in the Isles of Steam, alluded to in the epilogue of Unda Vosari: Legends, has a planned interquel novel.
Unda Vosari: Dark Corners makes it a point to tie up a few loose ends left over from Unda Vosari: Legends, although it raises a few more and sets a few stories up for Unda Vosari: Confrontations (the second novel).
Unda Vosari: Chronicles takes place both before, during and after Unda Vosari: Legends and the main four characters make an appearance in Dark Corners, alluding to an appearance in Unda Vosari: Confrontations.
Lost in Translation: While Unda actually does mean "water" in Latin (along with wave, flood, billow and a dozen other words), Vosari doesn't actually exist in Latin and, to this day, the author has no idea where he got the word (although he insists it means something like island or land).
The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: Averted. There is one instance where the crew of the Dark Vigil raids a palace once in the beginning of the first novel, but they don't rape, pillage or plunder anything else at all.
Privateer: The crew eventually becomes privateers.
"Don't I get a say in this?" The accompanying "no" is second to the fist saying "shut the hell up."
The Magnificent Seven Samurai: Zigzagged in Unda Vosari: Chronicles. While there are seven main characters (Lorimarko, Coulton, Genaya, Natalia, Alucard, Michael and Murai), it's fairly obvious that some of the roles are blurred. A few characters have a clearly defined role (Coulton being the Big Guy and Lorimarko being the Hero are pretty obvious).
True Companions: Averted and justified at different times. The crew goes to great lengths to give Alasse a proper burial, but Linden and Myranel are abandoned.
Vincent, Dashade, Michael, Coulton and Lorimarko (the first from the released book, the second having a cameo in the first book and the remaining characters being from the web-based stories) are partially based off the author. Lyri was partially based off an ex-fiancé (although she has since undergone a retcon to be no one in particular. Dean is based off a friend (and the character he played) from the original game.
