I liked the new characters.
The story is being set up very nicely, and is interesting, makes me want to read the NEXT chapter>>>>>>

............................................for chapter 4

Sorry hon, I know it's been longer than usual. Chapter 4 is delayed a bit, both for some research (gotta wait on somebody else to be available) and also because we're kicked into high gear at work now in preparation for the 2007 tax filing season. I've been so tired when I get home, and my neighbors are sooooo noisy that I am not getting much sleep. Can't write if my head's fuzzy from sleep deprivation.

It is coming, but will be a bit longer.

Chapters will come a bit more slowly from now until the end of May because of the tax season.

Chapter four will be a long one, though, if that helps to make up for the delay. I've got three scenes planned for it. There's a bit more of Palinn, Tobey, Rachiid, and Teyev in it; more Kettia, and Emporer Silrakk's first (albeit brief) appearance. Mostly, however, Chapter four will focus on General Schlan. He is shown in more detail in two of the three scenes. To give you an idea of how long chapter four will be....

Chapter 1 was 32.8k in size
Chapter 2 was 15.9k
Chapter 3 was 27.9k

Chapter 4 is currently 21.2k in size and I haven't even finished off the first of the three scenes, LOL!

I'm trying to get it finished. Please bear with me.

Oh, one more thing....
My forum sig is now tied to my myspace page instead of my magelo.
I have put the links to chapters on my myspace page, in order. I will keep doing that as more chapters come. So if you don't feel like wading through forums to find a chapter, you can link directly there from the myspace page.

Sorry it has taken so long, but Chapter 4 is now in the final editing stages and I expect it to arrive either later tonight or, at worst, by tomorrow morning.

I originally intended to have three scenes in it, but the Chapter is just too big with three, so I've cut it down to two scenes and pushed the third one into Chapter 5.

I actually had very good reasons for this...
1) Chapter 4 was getting too long.
2) Chapter 4 was taking too long to get posted.
3) By pushing the third scene into Chapter 5, it makes it much easier for me to include other, future scenes that I was struggling to figure out how to accomplish while maintaining a contiguous storyline. So it actually works out better this way and will make the overall story an easier, more intuitive, less clunky read.

Anyway, it's coming either tonight or tomorrow morning (LOL, that usually means "tomorrow morning" but I'm going to try to get it here tonight if I can).
