My most ambitious project ever: Saga of the Iron Dragon!

March 23, 2017 Rob 0

What if you found yourself in medieval Scandinavia with nothing but a knowledge of modern science, mathematics and technology? Further, what if the future of humanity rested on you building a craft capable of reaching outer space? Would it be possible? How would you go about doing it? How long would it take?

Four years after the destruction of the planeport, Earth remains cut off from Heaven. The angels and demons are in disarray, lacking direction and leadership. Someone has to step up and take control, […]
