NOTES & UPDATES
This will be a living document wherein I will be tracking some of the more important updates to the story as they are made, as well as leaving notes to help readers navigate this current mess of a narrative.
At the moment, a several years gap exists in the timeline between Dunwall's Funeral and Goblins Enter the Bregolad. Eomund is fully grown by the time we see him again in "Goblins". I do plan to fill the gap (with at least two more chapters), so look for that in the near future.
Most if not all the names in the story--including Eomund's--are subject to change. Once the story is complete, or nearly so, I plan to go through and redo many of the names.
May 14, 2014: Updated Prologue with new intro and expository text.
April 22, 2014: Added "Appendix B - A History of the Ridderwold, its People and the Surrounding Regions".
April 17, 2014: Changed "Wildfire" to "Fire and Flood".
April 17, 2014: Added chapter numbers because it seems that the mobile app has the chapters arranged in the wrong order.
April 15, 2014: This marks my longest chapter to-date as well as the connection between the beginning and middle of the story. I can now start adding to the latter part of the story! Things are still of bit rough, and "Goblins" needs to be rewritten, but I feel this is a hallmark for me and the story.
April 14, 2014: Changed "A Fateful Wind" to "Wildfire".
April 5, 2014: Added new chapter "Fothmorn".
April 3, 2014: Added a couple of paragraphs to the Prologue regarding Beomund and Hildora's marriage, Emound's birth and his upbringing.
March 29, 2014: Added new chapter, "Westward Borne".
March 12, 2014: Revised a small portion of "A Fateful Wind" chapter to include more narrative and changed a couple lines of dialog.
June 25, 2013: Finally uploaded a new chapter, "A Fateful Wind".
June 17, 2013: Changed Alfvin's name to Stalalf. Alfvin sounded too much like--and essentially was--Alvin. Also made a couple very minor textual edits to cut down on repetetion ("abandoned their wandering ways" really shouldn't appear twice in the same paragraph).
June 5, 2013: Changed the title of the book from "Eomund: The Horse-Helmed" to "Stormrider".
May 28, 2013: Added a new chapter; "The Funeral of Dunwall". Also added an entry for Halsin in Appendix I.
May 26, 2013: Added a map of the regions of the Ridderwold and Bregolad to both the Prologue and the Appendix.
May 19, 2013: Added new content to both the Prologue and "The Stormriders" chapter. Changed mutiple place names as well. Added an Appendix with a list of names and places.
May 9, 2013: Added the chapter "The Stormriders", which falls directly after the Prologue and deals with an earlier part of Eomund's life and his first time riding to battle. This marks my attempt at a more tightly focused narrative. Hopefully it works out.
Apr. 30, 2013: Added the chapter "Eomund Seeks His Revenge", which follows directly after "Eomund in the Care of the Elves". Had a different title in mind originally, but I think this one works best for my purposes at the moment.
Apr. 28, 2013: Revised the chapter "Goblins Enter the Bregolad". Made a few minor textual edits, added an expository paragraph describing Vigmod. Changed Rautha's name to Rauthmog.
