The Fell Gard Codices

Archive for the ‘Edit Notifications’ category

So I managed to get another chapter up last night, which makes two in a week. I’m hoping to continue to be able to continue with one chapter a week; it feels good. That is, above and beyond feeling good to be able to write fiction again, and feeling good because I’m moving the story […]

I’ve added a new chapter to the site. Effectively new; I fell sick when I was in the middle of Part 4, Chapter 17, so uploaded what I had and hoped to redraft it later when I was feeling better. That took rather a while. It’s been over a year and I half since I […]

How I Use Wikipedia

December 11th, 2012

One new thing I added to the revision of Fell Gard is a set of names for the various levels of the dungeon. Or, more precisely, I added the idea that the levels have names. I haven’t given each of the names, but added a couple where they seemed appropriate. I’ll get to a full […]

Level Names

November 15th, 2012

One of the things you’ll notice in the new, updated draft of Fell Gard is that a few names have been added. Things like “Silver Athrir” and “Twarid.” Level names. I generally feel that geography in Fell Gard is not terribly fixed. As we’ll see, there are forces that change the shape of the dungeon […]

Limited Synonyms

November 8th, 2012

I’ve been noting here a number of the changes I’ve made on the story so far, but there’s an edit (or set of edits) I thought about making that in the end I chose not to go with. I want to talk about it a bit because it has to do with the language of […]

Nonexistent Armour

November 4th, 2012

One odd aspect of researching a given era is that things you thought you knew are continually undermined, sometimes in large ways and sometimes in small. Particularly when it comes to things used in everyday life. And to things like weapons and armour (not everyday things, but everyday for an adventure story). Ever see a […]

A Usage Change

July 5th, 2012

As I said yesterday, I’m in the process of editing the tale so far, with an eye toward getting my feet under me to start up again with new posts. For the most part the edits have been subtle, but there’s been a significant change in usage I want to note here. Specifically, I’ve decided […]

Editorial Changes, Part One

November 24th, 2011

I’m continuing the editing process. I’ve gone through a paper copy of the whole first codice, and now I’m in the process of making those changes in the online version. I think I’ve avoided major changes, but there are a few minor additions and changes I thought I’d mention here. Chapters are listed in the […]

It’s crow-eating time. I’ve mentioned before that it’s important to me to use units of measurement (feet, inches) that derive from a mindset appropriate to the characters, instead of units (metre, centimetre) that derive from an anachronistic mindset; basically, the imperial system over the metric system. The problem is that I’ve grown up with the […]
