All right, finished it today.
The original intent, of course, was that it would be two books, so there'd have been a gap into which you could slot such adventures in between them. Obviously that was lost when it became one book, but that's why there's a gap of a couple of months between parts one and two...
That was the intent, all the way!
I voted 'Above Average' and it nearly made it to Outstanding! Good job!
