On Dae’s Reason to Come to Stormhold

Not, that I want to change it—he is definitely dispatched there by Atta—it’s just that he would, probably, never tell the truth about it to Ngale. Seems out of character. He should joke about it and maybe later admit that someone recommended the place as a nice city to visit, which would make Ngale suspect something. Dae should tell it to Verra, though, so the reader knows the truth. 

On Horses

I should give Verra a horse (raven black small Highlander mare with a meaningful—or whimsical—name), which she used to ride, but cannot anymore because of Captain’s inability to assign an appropriate convoy to her.

She would think of her, when contemplating her options of escaping the Castle, maybe even visit the stable to pet her, while thinking about the offer she just received.

Marque recalls Verra being good on the horseback in the beginning already, I may expand on that a bit…

A Name Change

Started to watch the third Hobbit installation, and suddenly realized, that Torrenn sound very much like Thorin (Oakenshield). Changing the name to Torvenn. That was easy (Project Find and Replace in Scrivener). And it even sounds more, like a sibling name for Verra’s brother. Torvenn Normann Stormhold. All right, then.

Verra Keira Stormhold, however, might need some work. Corriolain—for her mother’s name? Will work for a dead character for now. Verra Corriolain Stormhold. Sounds regal enough.
