Shindarin Rising Chapter Six Complete

The book is coming along nicely. I've spent most of the day planning and organizing in my head where I want the book to go. Chapter 6 is complete, and I'll begin working on chapter 7 tomorrow/today. I've also begun to construct a new language that will play into the story. I'm not much of a linguist, but I hope that I'm able to build rules such as sentence structure and syntax that will be logical and easy for the reader to understand how it works once they see it translated into English. It won't be a driving force to the story, if it even shows up that much, but I think of it as an added bonus that I get to play with language. It's one of the perks in writing in the fantasy or science fiction genre, that when you are building the world from the ground up, you can create things, and there is no one to tell you that you can't do it a certain way. Thanks for reading!

Soldiers milled around cook fires, sharpened swords, and fletched arrows, mostly staying close to their own squad's compound of tents and supplies. He wondered how many soldiers were like himself, hiding their true nature to keep from being used up in short order. He wondered how many secret mages, or at least those with the ability to become mages lurked in midst of the throng of these men and women.

Mages were a hot commodity in the Imperial Army as it swept across the continent claiming new lands for its own. Magic turned the tide in battle for whichever side had the most numerous mages. While ability helped greatly, a large number of fledgling mages could overcome a seasoned magical user in due time, at the cos…
