I would caution against "inflating" the roles of minor characters who happened to be in the RP (Sullust, Daleris, etc.) --Drakey

Also, I just reread the whole thing and realized that I sucked :P. I would do it much better if we did it again now. Drakey

We all sucked...

Except Alec, possibly, and David. Reading it again is a torture, but I needed to put years to the events.

I'm not going to inflate the role of the minor characters - the timeline does not allow it. We had several plots playing by at the same time - The doomguard, Linda's populist career, the Karadas/Hugo affair, Ironclad's escape... the guerilla fight Alec played out would have lasted years. Linda's embassy to SAFT was likely around 215 IE. The Kylenian conquest of the capital (Wasn't Imperius already in Kylen's control?) could have been in 221 IE - that puts Taron into SAFT's custody for well over five years.

The smaller plots will have to be mangled to keep the general picture. An army can't march a thousand miles in one day...

Doomguard and Quickfire

I suggest severely downplaying this aspect of the plot and maybe even removing it. If you do keep it, stress that both were prototypes far weaker than what is available present day. --Drakey 15:36, 2 Sep 2005 (CEST)

This subplot is problematic for several reasons:
# It stretches through a time frame that is much larger (near to ten years), but lasts only at most a few months itself. Removing the references to the larger events will be hard, and contracting the larger events is impossible.
# It is far too much detail in a far too trivial place. If it is included, that would be like a historical account of Attila's invasion in Rome being the personal tale of one of his soldiers. A few important events (Taron's destruction of the doomguard, Linda's slaying of Karadas, etc.) can be mentioned, but the entire plot is too much.--- Arancaytar | Send Reply! --- That is not dead which can eternal lie... 10:05, 5 Sep 2005 (CEST)
