Re: Relative size of major holds.

Re: Relative size of major holds.

If Nabol was the main source of firestone for the Weyrs, it would have had a really bad time after the five Weyrs jumped forward. A once lucrative trade (firestone for goods) would dry up and...

Re: Relative size of major holds.

Re: Relative size of major holds.

Re: Relative size of major holds.

The lack of mention of shipping is what I refer to as NITTS (Not Important To The Story). They merit mention when they become important.
