Would any game write-ups be relevant to this group or the Wiki? Fir example, the taking of the Earthshaker does not directly affect Whitewall (although the are Colymar and Volsaxi troops among the reinforcements), but it would provide a major foothold for the Lunar spearhead,and damage Sartar/ Tarsh trade routes. By the way , the guy in charge of the Pathfinders is a General named "Scammell". Does anyone know this name, or have we invented him? He is a very interesting character, so if it turns out he's one of ours, I'll write him up too, as he was in command of the huge ramps the Lunars used in the seige. He was killed by Bryon during their escape of the seige. Just thought you might all be interested?

Well, we're moving forwards in time, not back and forth, if that's what you mean. We all keep writing backstory for PCs (and NPCs) that might be set at any point in the last 20 years or so, but not gaming through it.

The Swords campaign has the start of Whitewall in back-story, and I hope will have the end of Whitewall still to come. Certainly there will be links, and we may even visit the ruins after it's fallen. But at the moment, we're in Pavis immediately post-Cradle.
