Toni Sainio - Story of a Prospect

Post by Tasku » Mon Jul 13, 2015 12:28 am

Toni Sainio - Story of a Prospect
is a hockey story focusing on the career of a Finnish 17 year-old defender on his way to a pro career. It's written in the form of a story, following the outcome of a simulation of EHM EA. I gave the protagonist a PA of -15, which means he may turn up anything between a grinder in a Euro league, to a star at the NHL level. I write, as the simulation moves on, and don't know what will happen either. I also gave him 20 at both defensive positions, and placed him in my home town team, Salon Kiekkohait of the Finnish Second Division -- the fourth highest level in Finland. From there on it's up to the game where he ends up.

I will share this story one season at a time. Since my primary writing language is Finnish, I recommend those who are fluent in the language would read the Finnish version.

Thanks for reading! :-)

Season two now available.

It's progressing slowly due to the fact that I first have to simulate, then write, and then translate, but I've dedicated one day per week for this, so it is getting a regular spot in my schedule -- meaning it might take a few weeks, but the next season is always on the works, and this story will not be abandoned.

Apologies for any possible grammar errors in the English version. I dare to claim they are nonexistent in the Finnish version, though! :-D

Season 9.
I don't have as much free time as I did when I started this, so I'm taking a little break. I will most likely carry this on at some point, when I have more time and feel I have an idea to where this story is going. Thank you for reading, and catch you on the flipside!

Toni Sainio is back!

Season 10 now available.

I have added some screens to the beginning and end of the story. Don't mind the old logos -- I'm playing my single player game with CJ's and Nino's 1998 database! :-D If you're having trouble reading the screenshots, push ctrl and the plus-key to zoom in closer.

If you're still reading, I'd like to know. Not thinking about quitting, but it's a good amount of work, and I've been doing this since 2015 (!? :-o ). I'd like to know if someone is still with me. Feedback is also welcome. :-)

I was just about to get season 15 done when I ran into an unexpected computer problem, which has forced this story on a break for undetermined length of time. Dang it! :\
