…now stands at 22k words. That makes it novella sized. There’s a little more to tidy up before the sketch is done. Then it’s back to:
The Barrequa —Theme: High Medieval Adventure. The setting is partly modelled on the Camargue in South East France
Erisse of the Illyany —Theme: Horror / Fantasy. The setting is partly Xinjiang in what is currently North West Chian in an alternate Earth.
Oasis of the White Lily —Theme: Adventure / Scientific Romance. The setting is the Sahara and it based partly around a legend of a secret oasis last seen in 1485.
