Re: March on, boys!

For Harper, the weeks of late 2013 flew by. Quite literally: on Tuesdays, he had to fly Hirosaki to Kuala Pahang, a nine hour direct flight, for a meeting on Wednesday, then flew back on Thursday. On Friday, he flew to Kohat on the six hour direct flight for the weekend, and then flew back to Hirosa...

Re: Continent of Dreams

CLASSES OF PERSON – THE BURGHER If aristocrats control the land, and vast swarms of loyal peasants, then it is the burghers of Questers who own the cities and the property, and the vast swarms of loyal account men. If the aristocrats define decadence, then it is the burghers who have come to repres...

RACES OF QUESTERS - THE DUSUN AND THE TAGALUG The southeastern part of Questers is the largest undisturbed rainforest in the world. It is the object of all naturalists and explorers.

Re: Continent of Dreams

RACES OF QUESTERS - THE MALAYS It is always hard for a Malayan to describe or define what being a Malayan is, especially as the Malayan people are spread out over three “counties”, with a total land area more than many countries in the world, and with each county having its own distinct culture and...

Commonwealth rifles

The first small arm to be issued widely in all parts of the Oryontic commonwealth was the Pattern 1855 Walker rifle. This muzzle-loading musket-rifle was eventually converted to fire more reliable metallic cartridges in .577 calibre and became known as the Pattern 1867 Walker rifle (muzzle firing), ...

Re: Continent of Dreams

RACES OF QUESTERS - THE DHARMANS The low Dharmans of Questers speak at least five different languages with many dialects each, and their genetics – where they are not admixed – portray wildly different racial backgrounds. Nonetheless, they constitute a single group, both in their own self-ideal and...

Re: Continent of Dreams

Part of a series of a Praetonian travel magazine. Arriving, the airport has one sign only - WELCOME TO NEW SENLAND. New Senlanders think that New Senland is the best place on earth and once this is agreed go about arguing which part of New Senland is the best place on earth. It was of course, not a...

RACES OF QUESTERS - THE GORKAS The Gorkas live in the highlands of Questers, and like all highland people they are very hardy, a little diminutive, and very traditional. They are few in number, but their reputation as soldiers, policemen, and general hard men is well warranted. They live between th...

Re: Continent of Dreams

RACES OF QUESTERS - THE SIKHS In the early 13th century, a man named Granth began telling people that all the Dharman deities were manifestations of a single, all-powerful creator God. For this simple heresy, he was torn apart by elephants. His idea, and his teachings, did not die with him. For two...
