Original story.  
Okay, so anybody on my flist in unlikely to be unaware that I spent August taking part in Camp NaNoWriMo - as it was pretty much all I posted about for the whole month.

So here is an edited (although probably not final) version of the first 1900 words of the story.

I would say ratings wise if this was a TV show it would be around about a pg13 to 15. If anybody on my flist is familiar with TV series like Sharpe or Hornblower I'm aiming for a similar sort of level.

In which there are many men in military uniform, some world building, an accident and unfortunately the death of two horses due to the accident. )

This is the first time any of this setting has been posted anywhere, despite being around in one form or another since about 1996 (When it was more a traditional medieval type setting).

So if anybody wants to read it and tell me what they think of it they can. The main thing is, is it too heavy or too light on the descriptions of people/setting/actions?
