OK, I think Ive read this enough to comment, Youve got a decision to make with this. There is a aweful lot to take in here: Do you leave it as is or break into component parts? My vote is to leave it as is, as difficult as it was for me to read and as much as this will impact how many people will actually go to the trouble of digesting it. and giving it a fair shot. I think if you break this up people will have a greater problem understanding the whole. I was unsure after my fiirst read, but now I am sure.
1)Leave as is
2) this is ready to launch Go to Comment
5/5 Ok it's a long difficult read but it's SO worth reading a couple of times to truely follow!
My guess is there is about a 30% chance some of this isnt fiction, just enough of a possibility to make me nervious. If this isn't Golden, Nothing is.(don't think you could do anything to make it an easier read and def feel it should NOT be broken up. Go to Comment
One day a a wind begins to blow out of the West. The next day it gets stronger. And stronger still the next few days. Eventually (and fortunately), the speed of the wind tops out at a steady fifty miles an hour, but continues to blow. Soon an entire kingdom is wondering why it's not abating. The weather mages deem it unnatural but can't seem to banish or control it. The priests of various faiths claim it's divine. The End-Of-Days crowd is having a field day with their predictions of doom. No one knows why the gale persists. When inquiring with neighboring kingdoms, it seems they too suffer from a persistent western mistral. Eventually the populace begins to adapt to living with a twenty four hour a day wind. Always from the West, and perpetual. What could be causing this? A raging Elemental king? a curse from the gods? an unearthed artifact? Or has Nature itself gone haywire?
