    I feel like the role of the first part of this chapter should be the ending of another chapter instead. The chapter's pace is a little too fast to enjoy the victory.

    • Ryan Watt Says the guy who starts the third part of each section of his current story with a flashback. hee hee. I kid. Yeah, this chapter suffered from "oh, I need to wrap some stuff up quicker than I wanted to fit my arbitrary volume lengths."

    • Ryan Watt Right? This was one of the most interesting stories I found during my deep dive into looking for 'Soldier' stories. Three-legged goats and a haunted tower? Sold!

    • Ryan Watt I figured having him go over the other trials as he headed into the final one was a better use of time. The other ones would have been boring to read about (well, maybe not the Trial of Truth)

    • Ryan Watt I honestly thought there were going to be more letters between them in this story! Maybe in a rewrite someday. Because there were many, many letters between them.

    Very clever, but since everybody already knew the guy was cheating, I'm not sure how much the Soldier accomplished. I very much enjoyed the drama of the fixed card game, though.
