Thank you for the warm reception, and feedback. I'm glad that you all were able to pick up on some of the questions I left unanswered in the prolog, makes my job easier. The only question now is how you would like to read the story... How big do you want the chunks, small chunks frequent posts, bigger chunks less frequent posts.
I would also like to thank Gibralter for encouraging me to do this. It's turning out to be really fun.
