Somewhere I must have missed reference to the Citadel.
Did it suddenly appear in the story or was a Citadel common to the time and area? This is probably picking nits but it did come as a surprise.

You do seem to find ways to get your characters traveling.

    I'm unable to say that I'm entirely happy with this example of a beginning, I'm sure it requires rearranging and quite likely needs trimming too. Just a starter.... Working title:- TIMOTHY... more

        I drew a map which, although a work in progress, I sent a copy of to Sarge. I'm sure I've mentioned this whole new story idea somewhere here? Well, to recap, its loosely based upon my favourite... more

            I like your suggestions especially Anglia and Midland would have been my choice except its too close to Middle Earth but BRYTHON works best only I'll alter the spelling a tad.

          Mike, Now you see how some of think.

          I am such a ten-year-old boy! I very much like the onomatopoeia, now that you point it out, If you do want some distance from us who delight in our sometimes immature male sense of humour though,... more
