November Content Update

It’s the second week of November, and that means it’s time for another installment of The Soldier’s Guide to the Infinite Sea. This month’s installment focuses on the mechanics of Royal Governance in the Unified Kingdom of Tierra, as the first part of a two (or three) part series about Tierran governance from the highest to the lowest levels.

As usual, this month’s article was funded by my supporters on Patreon. Those who donate $1 a month or more get access to articles a week in advance.

In addition, we’ve just hit the $300 a month tier, which means I’ll soon be doing two articles a month, one on the Infinite Sea, and a second one on the Fledgling Realms, the setting of The Hero of Kendrickstone, and its upcoming sequel, The Cryptkeepers of Hallowford, so look forward to that.


An Update on Hallowford (and October Content Update)

So, about two weeks ago, I submitted the text-complete version of The Cryptkeepers of Hallowford for review by Choice of Games. Since then, I’ve been receiving and incorporating feedback notes from both CoG and my regular beta testing group. Once the current cycle finishes (tomorrow or  thereabouts), I’ll be doing one last round of revisions (which will involve mostly cutting or streamlining repetitive text and testing the import system) before doing the remaining art, the reference materials, and finally sending it in for copyediting, hopefully, sometime before the end of the month.

With luck, I should be able to get a release date sometime in December or January.

In other news, the latest installment of The Soldier’s Guide to the Infinite Sea is now up. As usual, you can support future articles by donating to my Patreon. Anyone contributing more than $1 a month gets access to new installments a week before they come out here.

 


September Content Update (and more!)

The September installment of The Soldier’s Guide to the Infinite Sea is up. This segment covers the last part of the Wars of Unification, the birth of the Tierran state, and the circumstances that led an implacable enemy of the Unified Kingdom like Leoniscourt to end up joining it.

As usual, this worldbuilding content was funded by my Patreon. If you’d like to see more, then feel free to donate. $1-a-month Patrons get access to articles a week in advance, while Patrons at the $2-a-month tier get to vote on what topic I tackle for the next month.

In other news, I’ve finished the last chapter of The Cryptkeepers of Hallowford this week. There’s only the epilogues to wrap up before we go into post-production. Hopefully, we’ll be releasing at the end of this year, or the beginning of the next.


August Content Update

It’s the second week of the month, which means it’s time for another installment of The Soldier’s Guide to the Infinite Sea.

This month’s article is a continuation of last month’s coverage of the Tierran Wars of Unification. This time, we cover the climactic battle of the First War of Unification, the foundation of the Unified Kingdom of Tierra, and the socio-political forces which led to Tierra’s unique breed of constitutionalism.

This article, as always, was funded by my supporters on Patreon. If you’d like to see more of this kind of content, feel free to pledge here. $1-a-month Patrons get access to these articles a week in advance, while higher supporter tiers get a say in what articles I write next.

 


July Content Update

Another month, another entry in the Soldier’s Guide to the Infinite Sea.

This month’s installment is the first part of an overview of the Unified Kingdom’s early history. It includes a few names which you may find familiar, interesting, or both.

As always, Patrons who donated $1 a month or more got access to this article a week in advance, so if you don’t like waiting until the middle of the month to get access, you know where to go.


June Content Update

This month’s installment of A Soldier’s Guide to the Infinite Sea is now up for all to see.

Remember that folks who donate $1 a month or more to my Patreon get access to articles a week in advance.

In other news, I’ve got that big announcement I’ve been talking about coming up this month. Look forward to it: I know I am.


May Content Update

Quick update this time, just a reminder that this month’s A Soldier’s Guide to the Infinite Sea is up.

Also, there will be a big announcement this month, probably sometime in the next two weeks. Then you’ll all get to see what I’ve been working with on the side.

UPDATE, 5/17: Due to various reasons (all of them awesome), it looks like we’re delaying the announcement until next month. Stay turned. This is big, I swear.


April Content Update

It’s the second week of April, which means it’s time for another installment of A Soldier’s Guide to the Infinite Sea.

This entry is a little different from the past few. Instead of being written for public consumption, this month’s article is a briefing delivered to the Takaran Intelligence Committee, the small group of elected officials and high-ranking bureaucrats who sit at the highest levels of Imperial Intelligence, the Takaran Empire’s feared and pervasive clandestine service. It is an opinionated, unsparing, and uncompromising piece of work, as is its author, and one look should be enough to tell you why it was never meant for public viewing.

In other news, I’m sure some of you must be tired of getting nothing but new worldbuilding articles each month. To you I say: fear not. I got a big announcement coming up in the next couple weeks, and I am very much looking forward to revealing what it is.


December Content Update

With this month’s installment of The Soldier’s Guide to the Infinite Sea comes the last part of The Welles Report. In this section, the Countess delivers her conclusions, ones which those who have played Guns of Infinity may find somewhat familiar.

Next month will bring with it a new article on a new topic, thought up and voted on by those who’ve donated to my Patreon. If you’d like to have a say in determining what article goes up next month, there’s still time to pledge your support before voting on January’s article ends on the 19th.


November Content Update

It’s that time of month again: time for a new installment of The Soldier’s Guide to the Infinite Sea

We’re making a slight digression in this part of The Welles Report with a series of maps showing the progress of the Battle of Blogia. Now you can see where every battalion of infantry, every squadron of cavalry, and every battery of artillery was at the crucial points of the battle.

This is the first time I’ve added genuine real-live pictures to any of my patron-backed content. This was made possible thanks to the 48 generous patrons who’ve helped me meet my first-stage goal of $150 a month. The next goal, at $300 a month, will bring with it a second monthly column, this time devoted to the politics and society of The Fledgling Realms, the setting of The Hero of Kendrickstone and its upcoming sequel, The Cryptkeepers of Hallowford.

If any of this interests you, feel free to pledge your support through my Patreon page. A $1 US a month gets you access to new content a week in advance.
