World Building Wednesday!
James and I decided to start posting world things on Wednesdays since we felt bad about never participating, so here’s mine!
I seem to post a lot of these two, but never explain much about them, so here’s a basic premise.
Esther (age 12) is sent off with her aunt and uncle to join a settlement village in the north, part of her kingdom’s attempt to extend their borders. Rumors flurry around about violent people that live in the north woods, settlers disappearing, strange accounts of monsters, and so forth, yet Esther’s settlement proves to be about as exciting as a desolate mud hole could be.
That is until Len here and his tribe burn the nasty thing to the ground and kill just about everyone in it—save Esther and her little brother Jonah.
I’m not entirely sure what happens next, but I believe that Len spares them out of a stroke of guilt, and his tribe gets mad at him and exiles him until he’s returned the kids to their proper place—a mission they don’t expect him to return from. Shenanigans ensue, stuff happens, I’m not sure how the rest goes!
