I'm attempting to write a brief article about the concept of Quickening since I have a feeling the mechanics of Quickening won't be entirely explained in-story. Also because it will take, like, 23478329787 years before a Quickening-related phenomenon occurs in the story that needs some explaining.
So far, my attempts for an article is just an outline. Nonetheless, it is still informative. To those who are interested in understanding better how Quickening works, you can read the article here: http://archiloquy.wordpress.com/2012/05/11/quickening-101-with-d/ Also, I relocated the Worldbuilding page here: http://archiloquy.wordpress.com/quickening/ until I have my own website to dump all them in.
