Notes: Constructive criticism welcome, as always. The earliest recorded successful appendectomy was in 1735.

Not that my world is anything other than an Anachronism Stew, but. In-world, this takes place in an alterante 941ish, about eight months after Sorell becomes king. Levar is a bastard son of Sorell's father, and in his mid-thirties, older than any of Sorell's full/legitimate brothers would be.
