Exploring Ernaldesta and expanding Elusu next. Offir is still a blank as yet, though we know a bit about his family and at least one of his obsessions.

If you're happy to consult, I'd like some off-list discussion of the 1602-1604 period, as it's about to be very relevant.

Well, one at least was recruited in Pavis, we know that much. I believe Donald had ideas, which I hope he'll explain himself, concerning a century that's supposed to be DH peltasts and is now mainly Heortlings of various sorts none of whom speak more than a few words of New Pelorian. They're about as "Lunar" as those baboons :)

This is a possibility that we're starting to explore, mainly as a tax dodge.

We already have a game of backgammon. I was thinking I could hear their *players* rolling dice and swearing at the results. Talin's player got one incredibly good roll and everything else has been lousy :(
