Are you sure a novel is something you want to create? If your focus is on the 'New World' then why not start off another collaborative project like the previous ransoms? You take the writing reigns and give us a story that hasn't already been told by Ross and the gang. A chance for players to leave a mark on the New World without any idea of the potential consequences.

It seems there are already plenty of ideas fro side-stories, why not turn them into side-quests?

I'm already writing for the Codex and I'll probably be a little tapped out by the time I finish it as far as quest writing goes. Also, this is a way for me to get off my ass and actually try and accomplish some real fiction writing. It would be a feather in my cap.

Also, I love all of the suggestions so far. Keep 'em coming!

A short story set a few years before the colony focusing on a group of gnolls, possibly the same one that party interacted with, moving Pornafix's materials cross country.

Never fear, I've already started that one!

I'm all for the retelling of the New World, just because the whole scenario interests me. Side stories would be pretty cool too. Key characters of interest being: Pontifix, King Sea-moss, and maybe the Captain back when you were all causing problems in the colony.
