Re: Unresolved plot point collection thread
In the first place, it was not an "assertion" but a speculation, and clearly stated as such.
In the second place, it may not have any direct evidence to support the speculation, but it does fit closely to what is known of the development of ideas.
In the third place, I do not speculate that the plot was "abandoned" but that it was improved before he used it. To clarify: my speculation is that he had vague plans for a storyline where Trigak's mate returns to seek revenge on Belkar. The black dragon plot is the same idea, but improved.
And that is still speculation, not an assertion.
