I just added to the Databook section of the site. On the main part of the Databook, I've given a brief rundown of the Military organization of some of the places that have been seen in Ubernorden. I hope that it was most informative.
I'm back. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I did.
With the fam gone, I should be able to work on the next story. I hope to get if off just before Christmas, but I doubt I have the discipline for such an endevor. Wish me luck.
A while ago, I went to a student production of The Curious Savage. The play is about a weatlthy widow, Ethel P. Savage, who lost her husband some time ago. She has apparently suffered a mental breakdown and was institutionalized by her step-children, Titus, a U.S. Senator, Samuel, a New York judge, and Lily Belle, a former noblewoman and multiple divorcee. The setting is of the institution that the step-children send Ethel to, but the plot thickens when it is discovered that Ethel sold all the family holdings and has hiddend the money. This sends the step-children on a tizzy, threatening their mother with truth serom drugs and verbal inimidation.
In the end, the money, converted to negotiable bonds, was destroyed and the step-children left their mother, dejected. The doctor of the establishment decided that Ethel wasn't insane, just essentric, and so will release her. And it turns out that the nurse stole the bonds, faked their destruction, and gave them to Ethel so that she could use them as she sees fit. The pseudo-happy ending all around. Except it shouldn't be.
I just saw the most absurd thing I have ever seen. Click here to see what I mean.
Holy crap that is just... I don't even know what to say.
In other news, I am done with transcibing the rough draft. Now the hard part begins. Not only do I have to work the story into Ubernorden's new geography, but there are a lot of other places that need a lot of work. Still hoping to get it out by the end of December, but I will be busy this weekend, so we'll just have to see.
I am currently in the middle of book 3 of The Wheel of Time series. It is a pretty fun book series. I just wish I had started earlier.
Today is the day that World War I ended, the so-called War to End All Wars. We in America take the time to honor those that have fought in wars that our country have fought, as well as those that have worn the uniform. So as you go out today and see a veteran, shake his hand, he defended your freedom after all.
Also, I am no loger as busy as I once was, so I am even now transcribing the rough draft of the latest story. I hope to get publish it just before December, but we'll have to see.
This is the world in which they lived:
