2013-08-18 Folly's Children, Part 1 [Jason Schmetzer]

"It's the Strikers. And they're not slowing down."

When Duke Sandoval's forces attack into the Draconis Combine, the Fourth Federated Suns Lancers are paired with the Robinson Strikers against the Ryuken—but the Lancers wonder who the greater enemy will be: the Kuritas, or their allies? Part 1 of 2.

How much damage will the Davions do before we burnish them off our worlds?

In the exciting conclusion of the Folly's Children duology, the fight to control the capital of Barlow's Folly hangs in the balance. Part 2 of 2.

Nigh on two months since the first part of this story was posted. I thought all multi-part series were supposed to be posted in a serial manner, like the Nellus Academy stories are.

Sometimes yes, sometimes no. With some of the longer works, such as this or Chris Purnell's Eagle's Plunge series, I'm trying spacing them out a bit as an experiment.

Hi - based on the last post I have to ask if "The Eagle's Plunge" is still active then?!!  It's been 13 months since Part 1, so I had figured this serial was dead.

Thanks for any update.

Good to hear.

BTW, RE; your avatar, Stupidity can't be a sin as it is natural and not a choice that is made. Ignorance, on the other hand, is a totally different matter.

Just finished and I give my thanks to the author.  Really helps to provide background about what happened on the Davin/Kurita border during the dark age.
