This month’s entry for A Soldier’s Guide to the Infinite Sea is now up. This portion of the Countess of Welles’ report focuses primarily on the organisation of the Tierran Army, as well as its institutional flaws and strengths. In addition, it covers the leadership, equipment, and the experiences of the Tierran expeditionary force in the first half of the war. It’s considerably longer than the first part (which was merely an introduction), so it does get to go into a great deal of detail as well: a product of the months of worldbuilding which went into making sure that the portrayals of the King’s Army in Sabres of Infinity and Guns of Infinity were not only faithful to the limitations of pre-industrial early modern warfare, but to the society and politics of the Unified Kingdom of Tierra, and the setting as a whole.
If you want to support more of this sort of intensive worldbuilding in my future works, please feel free to donate to my Patreon. Not only do patrons get access to these articles a week in advance, they’ll also be able to input their own suggestions for future articles once my page gets off the ground.
