Jan 22The Changing of the Guard – Second Watch

Oops, I missed scheduling this! Thankfully I’m still up stupid late/stupid early, and can post it manually. Release notes include a diagram of the sectors and walls of the city, by popular request.

Please respond, critique, etc.. I look forward to discussing with you :) (Future updates will have release notes.)

The good old days. Swift & sloppy writings three days a week, sticking to a schedule even if it meant churning out chaff. But I gave the fans what they wanted. I have no regrets.
