Knight Fort/EWF

     I have been seeing a lot of speculation as to the origin of the Knight Fort.

     Um, wouldn't that put it smack dab in the middle of the EWF? Who had quite

amicable relation with the Praxians? (As in, whole tribes belonged to the EWF?)

     Perhaps it dates to the period between the Broken Council and the EWF? Or maybe Palangio the Iron Vrok built it to keep out the nomads? Some of them hired
out as mercs to the Council, but surely not all the tribes were friendly?

     Um, yes. As chief compiler, I apologize for not getting it out for GC VI/DU.
Editing is almost finished....sigh.
