“Even in an ‘Enlightened’ age, the Divine Proposition holds true: that our actions have consequences… significant consequences.”
“He cannot nurture souls, who cannot nurture a garden.”
–His Holiness Massimo Salvaggio
“I beheld the Axiom of life–and beyond, only nothingness.
Tell me the cost of dreamless sleep, and I will pay it.”
–Excerpt from the journal of King Edgardo Oberto
“Dauntina whimpers, my liege. What would you have me do?”

“I CANNOT die… I am the dawn of a new age.”
“Everybody wants to be a revolutionary; ain’t nobody want to start a revolution.”
“I’m not looking for any trouble.”
“… What other word for it is there, loyal Gasparro Cavallo? This is a Triumph! For you, for our people, for out future! By your merciful hand, Dauntina shall rise once more…”

“For many years, even before his consecration, Good King Edgardo pondered how best to serve his beloved subjects. On a cool autumn morning, he awoke, inspired by dreams of his honorable ancestors. ‘My father calls for Concord!’, he proclaimed proudly and confidently from the palace…”

I solemnly swear to start using this thing.
Some general notes:
Each Chapter is 100 pages long. Exactly. When the Concord Initiative is active, I update 2 pages every Sunday. That means every Chapter should take about a year from start to finish–at my current pace, given my normal 9-5.
I finished Chapter 2 about a week ago. I do not expect to begin positng pages for Chapter 3 until the beginning of the May at the earliest–primarily because I HAVE to draft out the next two chapters before I start working on them. I thought I could get away with the outline I have, but I have gotten caught up in the 2 by 2, and that has affected pacing (among other things) too much. So I am going to suck it up and spend March and April being far more conscientious.
February is for QnA. I have 8 good questions to answer, now, which hopefully I’ll be able to pump out every other day or so. From there, I’ll have plenty of supplementary material to post every other day–even in March and April.
I appreciate your patience. I know it will be well rewarded.
