    I downloaded it straight away because I was so keen to peruse it but I will be buying the softcover version as soon as it goes on sale. First impressions are highly favourable. Thumbs up, guys!

    For anyone interested, I've posted my Venetian dictionary to an online translator. There's only about 5000 words there so you'll get many words popping up without translation.

    My Amazon copy arrived today - just flipped through, and so far, very pleased. I liked the Moons of Boria, but Vendalyr resonates a bit more for me. Good stuff.

    Thank you. The Holds of Vendalyr was a great book to write. I'm proud of the finished work, though there were moments when I doubted any of it would make sense to anyone but me. It was definitely a learning experience. Glad you enjoy it.

    Now, if I could only get this Felan book to fall in line and make some sense.

    It's definitely a fun read. I like the way the Venetians worked out. I was expecting an elf and/or Vulcan sort of clone, and was glad they're not really either.

    Definitely like the inclusion of Venetian martial arts and stances (the tilts), especially with my copy of NOW having arrived a few days prior. I'll want to see some Felan martial arts now (to make your job tougher).

    Sorry, no Felan martial arts. Their's is a game of cunning subterfuge and manipulative social one-upmanship. I've been playing with some new social mechanics. I hope they work out because they really define the Felans, in my mind.
