Based on what I read in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guards!_Guards!, I'd say you can make a comparison, but not a complete one. Dink is honest, straightforward and idealistic like Carrot. However, Dink's enthusiasm in the original game never strikes a chord with the guards within the game.

yes
they are different people

however, they are very literal.

and the dink model is how I imagine carrot. tall, strong, carrot haired...

I assume you mean the guards within the book

and yes, i understand

I've been working on a thing.
And my ideas have made somebody's brain hurt, I think.

Well tell us more about your project, please!

But don't tell us about the parts that might hurt our brains.

So here is a question for you all.

Are there enough people out there that want another SlipDink dmod for me to go to the effort of making one?

I have some ideas for my next one and I have been keeping notes, collecting up some files and experimenting with some DinkC functions that I had not been able to get to work before so I can try a new "special effect" that probably has been done rarely in DinkC, if at all. I'm developing a new storyline and a set of (what I assume) are, at least in part, a set of unique "subquests".

I enjoy doing all of this, but I know that this effort will be a long term one, taking many months to come to fruition. Is there an audience out there that is waiting, even now?

You feed the madness, and it feeds on you. 
The rarely or maybe never done special effect has me intrigued. I enjoy seeing new ways to use dinkc functions that has not been done before.

Without giving away the special effect, can I ask which function it is you've achieved it with?

Well, I'll tell you about it in the private message section.
