A journal for discussion of the story "Reconciliation."


Just what the hook says. I will try actually to reply to any comments in this journal.

I'm glad it was those points, rather than some others, actually.

Does that mean there were other points you thought were unclear?

I had thought that they'd be more familiar with that part of Belfalas that's south of them, since that's where the Corsairs usually hit (or so I've imagined - drawing from Trust and projecting that back into this story). Whereas to the north of Dol Amroth, it's sparsely inhabited anyway

Good points. Makes sense to me, particularly in light of this:
Going north is usually something one does to get somewhere else, like Anfalas,

I think one tends to forget that in earlier times, there truly were blank, unknown spaces on the maps ("there be monsters" and all that) if they was not a populated areas and/or just used to pass through. Areas that were simply not interesting in themselves.

Thanks for your comments - I'll go make a few adjustments to the narrative in light of them.

Glad my questions were useful!
