Re: What If

Day Six - Like Father, Like Son Makanjil always liked to see plants in the lobby of a lift. It always complemented marble, he thought. The Gorka security guard was very quiet. The carbine clasped to his hip did not move at all, so slow were his movements. Finally, when they had reached the top floo...

Re: Embrea 101: War, Peace, and Trade

Nothing you wrote is bad imo. The historical concept is especially good. But you don't totally answer the most important question. Who are the Embreans? We often say you have to pick a country you think is fun. But the main thing is really to pick a country you think will be fun in one, two, three y...

Day Eight - The Quality of Men - "This is ridiculous. He is a boy." "Ac-tu-ally," Underhill said, chewing a pencil, "He just looks like a boy. He was fifteen in January. He's old enough to marry." "So he's old enough to lead the western Commonwealth into a holy wa...

Re: What If

Day Seven: Here Lies the Pillar of Cloud - Early morning The Dukesardar got up. The headache was back. His eye was definitely infected now. There was no time to treat it. The infection gave him a mighty headache and every time he stood up he felt dizzy; so it was bad enough that he got up, but wors...

Re: What If

Day Six: The Honour of the Regiment The wind on his face. The rings around his eyes from the binoculars. The sticky prickles, on his service shirt, that feeling that insects were there when you knew they weren't, especially on his back; the feeling that nothing could stop you. The Risaldar-major ha...

Re: What If

Day 5 - With The Wolf of Ambala Someone had tried to build a mall here, once. Poorly laid linoleum coming up at the sides. Broken escalators. Shop lots never rented out. A half built fountain. What had happened here? When did the men who dreamed this mall give up, when did they realise that nothing...

Re: What If

Day Four - The Return of the King They watched the stream of vehicles come ever closer. Scout cars, trucks, jeeps, even civilian cars that had been pressed into service. There were still troops out there, in the field in Yehud, fighting the good fight, but nobody knew how many or where they were, o...

Re: What If

Day Three: A white moustache and a wedding The Dukesardar liked the doors open. It made bright light fill the helicopter, but the Dukesardar wore sunglasses, so the vast blue ocean seemed darker, more foreboding, but also further away, and harmless. The pilot pointed the Dukesardar's attention west...
