Correspondence

A letter addressed to Kinsho’on, thirteenth and current Roshi of Taihei Tengoku, from a Prekovar presumed to be the Gospodár, Michal Havlíček. There is a tendency in our countries to scrutinize what is Praetonian, and most of all the religion which constitutes their people. For all the attention th...

Maps using Wilbur

Using free programs, I subject a matscale map to realistic erosion and transform the result into a 16-bit heightmap suitable for GIS. This method is no substitute for drawing an excellent pixel map by hand; you will get superior results by inputting superior pixel maps. Wilbur can be found here: htt...

Re: Radovan walks again

Old Polyakov was the first industrious Polyakov that anyone could remember. He had too many daughters (this would not have surprised you, if you had known his sly tendencies), but he had put them to good use attracting the attention of the local vechniki . He married the first six to the vechniki ’s...

Re: Radovan walks again

The Gospodar perched on the edge, and looked over. “It’s a bad melt this year,” he noted, and gestured over the rooftops at the engorged Volynka River. The men around him nodded. “Very bad, Gospod ,” said Alyakhnovich, confident that his responsibilities were distant enough from rivers to say so. “T...

Re: Across the River

Any traveler to Prekovy is struck by the great differences in national feeling between her people. The word Prekovite, which refers to a citizen of Prekovy regardless of nationality, has no translation in the Prekovar language; instead the word Přískové is used for both the race and the country. Thi...

Re: Across the River

For many years the Prekovar schoolboy was told that his ancestors came over the Jotlund land bridge* and settled the Prekovar Basin. There they remained for forty thousand years - an unbroken lineage. He correctly inferred that this lineage, shared by no other race, gave the Prekovars an indisputabl...

Across the River

Far to the north, across the Tepla River, has lived for as long as memory runs, that proud and tenacious people called the Prekovars. The Prekovar lives in the pretty limestone apartments of central Ostrava, where the smog is blocked out by oil-damp rags which his wife hangs in the windows. He lives...

Jotlund should be removed

Jotlund serves no useful purpose. It is inhospitable and could not support vikings. The limits on viking sailing distance would not be mitigated by anything related to jotlund. There is no food and no wood on Jotlund for the vikings to use to extend their journeys, because it is ice and rock. It doe...

Re: Choose Your Own Veridis

Judge Bautista Torrejón Basavilbaso stepped into the room while Jorge spoke. He sat down quietly and dabbed his nose with a handkerchief. His wife told him that his nose was too large for a magistrate of the Penal Court of Bray Fentos, but he hadn't decided what to do about it yet. Then it was his t...
