Re: Land of Lost Content

The Marshal of the Nampata Arthur Semton, The Commonwealth Times (translated from Flamaguayan) I've never claimed to be a genius, but I know my country, and I have had the curiosity to seek out and discover others. This combination makes me unusual enough that I have been able to make a life explai...

Re: Radovan walks again

"I feel, Sir, at this instant, how much I had been animated in my childhood by a recital of Senland's victories. I was taught, sir, by one whose memory I shall ever revere, that at the close of a war, far different indeed from this, she had dictated the terms of peace to submissive nations. Thi...

Re: Tales of a nightwatchman

*** 12 *** We all love a good disaster story. Isn't that why we slow down for car crashes, watch the crime reports on the news, and turn out for public hangings? But when you're there in the middle of it, it's a different story. In the first place, you don't really notice it's a disaster. For sure, ...

Re: Tales of a nightwatchman

*** 11 *** At noon we had the Merchant Venturers' Club under siege, with several surrounding buildings occupied. We had repulsed a breakout attempt and inflicted some casualties.

Re: Tales of a nightwatchman

*** 10 *** Why did I go? Well, it would be easy to say that they would shoot me if I didn't. And it wouldn't be a lie. But at some point they lost interest in me, and started doing things like writing their final letters to their mothers, praying to whatever it was they believed in, and drinking as ...

No, not even the ambush, which at least was over quickly. Scattered in terror in the jungle at night, wi...

Re: Land of Lost Content

In the Shadow of the Mutiny Arthur Semton, The Commonwealth Times (translated from Flamaguayan) It should come as no surprise that the Great Mutiny changed Questers. And yet, in most ways Questers is just the same. Dynasties rise and fall, and this does not change the character of the place as much...

Re: Land of Lost Content

Mistress of the World Arthur Semton, The Commonwealth Times (translated from Flamaguayan) Providence is one of those words that defies translation. Just as one could call a Providentialist gathering a "church", which would paint it one way, or a "temple", which would paint it an...

Re: Land of Lost Content

Jewel in the West Arthur Semton, The Commonwealth Times (translated from Flamaguayan) I read the wire the other day - Someone wronged us far away. And now I see, without delay, The ships sail out from Douneray... Horek's War between the Estates-General and Prekovy made Douneray, the great port of t...
