  1. Re: The Red King (A King of Rivers and Hills AAR)

    Good updates! I like the way that your writing conjures up evocative images such as the burning banners and King Bolton's horrifying gift. The phrasing work well, for example where you describe...

    The rebellion sounds like an opportunity for Magnus, but it sounds like there are major threats from Norway and Scotland. I'm looking forward to seeing what will happen in the sieges and what this...

  5. Re: Hyperborean Period Chronologies (another line of my universe)

    Yes, the secrets and legends of your world are intriguing - it can be fun to speculate and imagine what the element of truth might be behind each fairy tale.
