Matt's Timeline

Greetings! Sorry for the slight absence... Ya'know, book two and all that jazz. Anyway, thought I'd post a fancy shmancy Timeline (and by fancy I mean awfully rendered in mac paint) for you all to see what I'm working on... It's fairly un-fleshed out, but it gives a nice bare-bones template for what's to come and what I...

We did it! Also... Book two
