I added a couple of pictures, anyway.

As to stede and burg, stede just means "place" in general. For "town", I have been using burg, which seems right even if the word has other implications too. A variety of words can be found and scattered across a text.

Aye, but grammar's the fun bit: it lets you play around with the word order to best effect.

It is a question of getting the right endings and occasionally remembering when a vowel changes.

To be honest, I am not very good at it either and I keep getting corrected. I found a useful set of grammar tables (albeit incomplete) on an enthusiast's wiki called 'Gemotstow', here:

Good luck with it!
