THE DUNGEON

Go to the November, 2006 archives of the Trowbridge Chronicles to pick up the Khan Chronicles from the beginning.

When I first began reading Mrs. Trowbridge's Khan Chronicles I found myself admiring Keno. He is loyal, resourceful, courageous, and of course, hard-wired to run. He also seems to have a knack for getting himself into precarious situations. This week's episode is no exception. He has gained entrance into Emperor Nang's palace at Shomu and is seeking permission from the emperor to receive military assistance from the royal army. At the moment, it seems that Keno's plans have been put on hold. Our story resumes...

Oh my! This is a sad day for Keno. He looks so pitiful sitting there all by himself. Can't wait to hear the next part of the story. This is getting exciting!

Battered and bruised and fearing the onslaught of hissing critters and pesky fleas. Oh Keno, my thoughts are with you. I can feel the desperation as I read Violet's notes and see you sitting on the cell floor. It looks like you have company too...perhaps, unwelcome.

I like the way Violet Trowbridge has executed these last few renderings of your adventure.

Wow, things really don't look good for Keno! He could use a warm blanket and hot chocolate!
