[Milieu] Serialised Novel link-

While this tale is in a far-flung region of the Metacosmos, and only occasionally references Urutsk and its sister world Aqmlk, it is a part of The Grand Tapestry.

I thought that readers of this blog may be interested in additional background.

[Milieu] Visual Input-

While Durn is not at all the focus of Urutsk, it is an important aspect of the setting.

Some links to follow for visual inspiration as regards the forts of the Duhen Shes Wied'am:

--The different sorts of forts and stables and other buildings are all more or less like:

* African Moslem sea-side fortresses LINK,

* Petra's beautiful canyon buildings LINK,

* the Ethopian hidden cites (just gorgeous stuff, IMO) LINK,

* Spaghetti-Western movie towns LINK
[the photos click-through at the immediate right],

* South Western Pueblos LINK
