They can still sap your energy away though.

Yeah, but it makes me forget how sad the world is :(

"Point taken"! LOL...

Huh - I didn't even notice that one when I was writing the script!

Secularists finally won something in Turkey! Specifically, the mayoralty of Istanbul:

Erdogan, the religious-conservative President, is probably now regretting his famous utterance that whoever controls Istanbul controls Turkey :)



Also, Georgia has been blowing up recently a bit (not literally fortunately) because some idiot decided to allow a visiting Russian MP to address parliament from the speaker's chair. In Russian. Given Russia de facto occupies 20% of Georgia via two separatist regions (it's hard to know how separatist they really are because they're a bit full of Russian troops, much like Crimea/Donbass but they've been doing it for longer)... it's not hard to see how this upset people a lot. There've been several days of protests, the parliamentary speaker has resigned, the billionaire oligarch who runs the government has now agreed that next year's elections will be fully proportional for the first time as well.



And the Czech Republic has faced the largest protests since the fall of Communism, over major corruption scandals surrounding their ruling party ANO (which are centrist-populists - their main opponents are a conservative party and, amusingly, the pirate party who are now the largest progressive force in the country).


It's a bit busy out there in the world!

So, the idea of this setting is that it's kind of generic in some ways - like, I want it to be close enough to the staples of the genre that I can use them - but also I can't resist putting twists onto things.

I think the reason why the dwarves are still dwarves is less because they lack any twists, more because those twists are created by internal subdivision rather than a whole-species change. The dwarves and humans are the two really widespread and diverse species/peoples in this setting, and both of them have a lot of different cultural etc variations with their own names - I think there's about six cultures I worked out within dwarf society (and a lot of those are fusiony cultures because "dwarf society" in most areas is not a sealed bubble from "human society", the two largely coexist). The Hanau meanwhile are simply fewer in number and more culturally cohesive which means there's sort of more difference because the cultural and species differences all turn up together? (I could have renamed my gnomes for the same reason as they're quite monocultural, but gnomes are sufficiently not-quite-everywhere that I don't think I need to, and I feel like they could actually do with more airing as a serious-ish fantasy species/race.)

Also yes I should get the map sorted!

Yeah, it depends what you're after - I can probably produce something small for Thursday, but I'd rather have longer and be able to make something actually good!

The innkeeper sounds like a good character :) Good to see more progress!
