Two chapters in

I'm enjoying dipping into the land of Nuomor and seeing what Taifa and Shanh are up to.

Another thing I'm having to watch out for is keeping metaphorical language tuned to their land. The Nuomorans worship Majai, goddess of the sea, so I am gearing the wording towards water when metaphors are needed. They even measure time with water clocks, so *seconds* become *drops of time*.

Yep. I'm having fun.
