Myen'Tal, your suggestions have been implemented. Things took a bit longer than expected as the wife's business has needed me to be involved more to get the orders out the door. The busy season is upon us.
I hope adding in who is talking alleviates some of the confusion.
Treesnifer, the changes implemented make everything much clearer, I get an overall better sense of clarity when I'm reading the Interlude. I can easier tell who is who and their importance in the Elder Council(?). Looking forward to the next update
