    Ah, good. Will come in handy. Might go back to the previous entry to do some thinking.

      Yea, I thought I’d get the supplements out first this time. As said in text, they will remain available on the top-bar menu. I wanted to show the progression from the small West Alsime land, to the Alsaldic Empire.

      • Brian Bixby says:

        Which otherwise from the chronology alone can only be gauged as “yep, they expanded, though it got harder over time.”

        I compiled the ‘Truvidiren’s Chronicle’ with part intent to show the ongoing and imminent threat from the Nritrin and other ‘eastern’ folk.
        It’s a shame these threats must come from the east; Tolkien has the same problem of people thinking the eastern threat of Sauron as an analogy. But it’s a fact that GB has been invaded and threatened mostly from the east. Except, you’ll now say, for the Romans, and Normans, and the Spanish with their Armada and . . . . okay, not always from the east, but not (yet) from the west.

      • Brian Bixby says:

        Aye, I can remember reading a fantasy novel review from the early 1980s that complained that all evil invaders seem to come from the East.

      • crimsonprose says:

        But from a western point of view, whence else? Historically there has been an almost constant thrust from the east. Though, as said, not exclusively so. Certainly from the Carolingian viewpoint, the Vikings came in from the North. And from Sicily’s point of view, so too did the Normans. (Oh, were they the same people?) Yet from, e.g. Chinese point of view, the worst threats came from the west (until Japan got into the act) There is, of course, always an exception. And now in the days of possible space travel, fantasy writers have evil arriving from out of the skies. And that direction does figure (to some degree) in King’s Wife.
