More progress on Chapter 10 -- some backwards progress, though. :( Over the weekend, I decided to change it so that the kitchen boy is kidnapped instead of stabbed. So that meant Gorok had to go into the kitchen to find out what was poisoning the mages, realize the kitchen boy wasn't there, and then deal with Kensin, who was looking for Bel. Then, once Gorok, Wulf, and the others were relaxing after dealing with healing everybody and cleaning up the mess, Kensin would run in and (gasp) ask Wulf for his help looking for him. But then the timeline didn't seem right with that, so I considered using the previous end of the chapter where he comes in with the wounded Bel. (He had been able to find him but couldn't prevent the attack.) But then, this morning, I got another idea. Why not have the _fake_ Kensin take the boy away. Then, the real Kensin comes by the infirmary, looking for him. And when Gorok says he just saw Kensin taking him away, Wulf can figure out that there's a shapeshifter. Then I can end Chapter 10 on that and use the more recent action stuff from Chapter 10 as the beginning of Chapter 11. (At least I'll make easier progress on Chapter 11 as it's partially written!)

I also got an idea for a nasty creature. A man, or a man-like creature, made entirely of reflecting surfaces. People are forced to see harsh truths about themselves in its surfaces. It could be polished silver or water -- something people from Gorok's era would relate to. Sort of like The Knight of the Mirrors in "Man of La Mancha" only nastier. Or perhaps "Mirror Man" from the Human Leagues song. ;-> The twist, of course, is that it's purposely showing only the bad things they've done, and even emphasizing the darkness of the deeds. Gorok has accepted the bad things he's done, so while he's dragged into staring into it for a while, he is able to pull away from it.
