For starters, in the way I envisioned the story progressing it was becoming quite stale. Furthermore, since I have changed the geography and the political situation of Ubernorden many of the plot points of that story no longer make as much sense as they used to. And lastly, I have envisioned a kind-of sequel that takes place in the future of that story that possesses many of the same plot points, but is far more dynamic and features a neat little 'pull' that is classic Ubernorden. This means that it will be more enjoyable for me to write and ultimately for you to read.
As of yet, I have not yet figured out if this discarded story will be used as back story as is or in a similar yet different form for the new story. But we are a long way off from that story being written.
