So here's a place for us to talk about stuff as we go along as well as comment on what's happening. Though I invite everyone to put comments in the actual scene threads in some personal color Which you may want to claim now to distinguish it as your OOC voice. I'm reserving red for GM voice. Of course you can just type normally in this thread.
Remember thoughts are in italics and you are welcome to soliliquize (?) in character with them. Any intended actions not yet narrated into the story or anything else should be in OOC voice.
Question for Rugrsi and Yellow. Would it be okay for me to combine your backgrounds a bit and make the former Saar vassal state the same as Dalomo's home state? I can do it either way (and have notes to both) but I think it would tighten things a bit. If that's true Rugrsi do you want Ismene to be your pupil or a younger sibling of hers?
