I imagine this has been forgotten now but at some point last yet I spoke about wanting to write a book about how to survive the harsh lands of Endeja.
The pages of the book will include information on what enchantments on weapons can do, how to use magic and healing effectively. It will also have basic information on the ten factions including our own.

I have started writing and so far I am impressed by my own work but I have noticed gaps in my own knowledge. So I am asking if there is anyone who would want to help me finish this great work. I am looking for a representing of every faction (i will be ysing a ley stone to contact them more appropriately) that would like to write a paragraph or two about there faction. Who rules you, what lands have you won and have right of ownership, what people reside there. It need not be extensive just enough to tell the readers of this book who not to anger.

Yours in faith Lily of the Wolves.

You can pick apart my lack of a proof reader for a simple ley post or you can be useful, your choice.

I wouldn't mind seeing this book when it's finished.

Unfortunately I don't have much to add, as your knowledge is probably more extensive then mine, but I wish you well in your endeavours

I think there was an intended humour to the above comments, these places are not always the easiest to convey or interpret as such. Your efforts will be interesting to read when they're complete, I look forward to seeing the result!

I am happy to offer some insight, if you can pin me down for longer than Loki spent as a fly :?

eazy there, Loki girl. Notwithstanding the wildfiry and angst-ridden nature to be expected from you loki guys, how do you get from spelling mistake to jumping into a void gate in a sentence? Rourke iz right to point out to da importance of spelling in books. Minky once famously cooked pheasant stew from a badly spelled recipe (h missing), well those farmers were real ticked off. So remember correct spelling, because in the harsh lands of Endeja, it can mean da difference between life and death. Even a missing wee little comma can be the difference between a fulfilling injunction and an execution for high treason.
example:

Let's eat, Radek!

that sounds like somfing da King would like you for. But consider:

Let's eat Radek!

Now that's trouble.

Minky will point out that reading books is only of limited use in a battle. Maybe scrolls are better? or even a sword. Since I iz feeling bad I'll give all da gobbos I know a chalk and we'll help you finish da book

Now let's all write on, Loki girl! :mrgreen:

If you can pin me down for a few moments, possibly when I stop for food, I can offer whatever help or comments you might need.

Remember proof readers are there to help you aspire to getting your message across and Minky is right. Remember those Incantors with the sore knees all because some poor sod quoting his Ancestors favoured virtures left an 'e' out of hope!

And when 'Piper' ended up as the bringer of string, rather than spring, admittedly that was caused by him stumbling over his words when speaking but it's the same idea.

Lily, the Order could benefit greatly from your work, as it would give us a good insight into the other side of a battlefield. I'd quite like to see it when it is finished.

I suspect most people will prefer to discuss such knowledge in person. I hope you can write quickly as they talk!

I would be interested in sharing anything I know with you, Lily - which probably won't take long.

Perhaps you could talk with Kalisha in her role?

I look forward to talking with you at the spring moot if you will be there.

Alabina is right, if you track people down face to face they are more likely to help. Especially if you ply them with drink, nothing really being free and all.

Also, more discrete contact with certain factions may engender more positive responses.

That's some free advice for your book.
