Mathematical Impossibility

I have today put up not one, but two parts for Red Ice: First Craft, and Polonium Black. These collectively complete Chapter 1 of the story. 

Having more German vocabulary in the story now, as the secret rites of the Order of the Red Ice, I've pretty much decided that that is the language the Order operates in, while the main common language is English. This doesn't take place on Earth, however, the twin moons being the most obvious fact about that, but it would be taking place on a similar world.

If it were part of the Spiral Island lore, I would probably take the opportunity to develop more the artificial language I've been slowly writing over the years for that series. But it does not, and so I wanted to use something more down to the level of our world.
