Thanks Tael, I hope that the number of players hasn't grown too much. The stuff is about to hit the fan in the story, but it's been really complicated to get it to do that in a reasonable way (how contradictory was that sentence?) I struggled mightily deciding whether or not to introduce a new character—however minor—and the end result is the Kor'vre.
Anyhow, it's nearly 3am here, so I better get back to explaining why the paternity by estoppel and best interests of the child doctrines have unintended detrimental consequences. I've only got 4 pages and I need 20. Heavy sigh
Are you downloading my story onto PDF? That'd be kind of cool.
