Veil War Cartography

I’ve created a page to serve as a single home for all the maps that I post. Right now, it’s just what I posted earlier – the map of the Battle of Rafha and the link to the googlemap satellite view of the same terrain. However! I have more maps, and as the spirit moves me, I’ll post them as well. Insomnia will probably be a necessary precursor for that sort of spirit-moving as it was for this…

Because Dragons Should Have Lasers

Ian asked me to spin up some post-hoc rationalization for Chapter 24, and I was glad to oblige. The result can be found over at Action!, Ian’s blog for advice on writing good action scenes. He wrote the book on it, after all. Check it out.


Veil War Thursday

Here we are, and it’s Chapter Two Dozen already. You know, in base 12, that would only be 20? Teaser:

Odo neither jumped nor dove, but charged straight in. The sword came down and Odo twisted, spinning like a shot-putter to dodge the blade. He came out of the spin, planted his left foot and lunged, his sword arm to full extension as he thrust up to the giant’s waist.

The giant’s thick armor took the blow, and Odo’s sword shattered. The giant chieftain stood there, unmoved and gazing down at the tiny man before him, stunned and disarmed. He raised his sword.

As always, your comments and suggestions are welcome. Please join in the fun of pointing out my mistakes and errors – it’s fun for the whole family! The person who points out the most errors wins a prize.
