a breif bit of exposition I think I handled much more naturally that the previous bit.
Yup, I can tell the exposition was handled more naturally--still a little repetitive, though ("of course" in particular), and there are typos.
For instance, "islands of Isoncia"--you typo'd the name of your comic. :P
"giving total Anachry" has the r displaced; it shoulda been in front of the ch.
"why its so rural" should be "why it's so rural".
If it makes you feel any better, I've always had trouble with writing large doses of exposition myself. :P
