In My Head Theatre had been running scenes from the “Spy Guy” story from my Opera Magique world, but now that I seem to have got a reasonably complete plot put together, it’s been switching things up a bit. Today it was the Across a Jade Sea sequel featuring Batiya’s oldest brother. (Don’t get excited, anyone. I won’t be writing it any time soon. It isn’t even in the queue yet.)

Working out plot points for the “Spy Guy” story in advance seems reasonably benign — with the flex of a totally rewritten history to work in, I don’t think further research into Germany circa 1700 is going to destroy a plot about a bunch of smallish political entities vying for control of a magical item.

But do I really know enough about the technical challenges facing an Army Engineer in WWI/WWII to be able to put that kind of a plot together at this point?

I recall that the US Army Corps of Engineers used to give out some of their back stock for free--some interesting books there, and right now it looks like you might be able to just go to their website and hit them up for PDFs. I'm slightly confused by their website redesign but you are probably smarter than I am.

I would happily be a reader of this story, but since I know nothing about engineering I cannot possibly comment on feasibility. I assume you can find an actual military engineer type to check this, though.
