Re: All roads lead to Jesselton

If there was one thing you never got used to in Questers, Markus thought, it was the heat. Sure, it would occasionally top thirty Celsius in Embrea, but Questarian heat was something different entirely. Like stepping into a sauna in full dress. Stand outside for five minutes, and you'd be sweating b...

Re: Embrea

Expanded Stuff Based on Conversations From Today During the war of independence and for a short time thereafter the Embrean cause will be strongly influenced by Common Law.

Re: Archive directory

I've worked with Doom a bit and I'm assuming Sadari's role in that war but I'm not Islamic (though the religious bit isn't particularly relevant idt).
