So, I’ve got a few more minor housekeeping updates this month, just to keep everyone appraised.
First of all, we’re very nearly finished the primary writing work for Burden of Command, and the main campaign is only a few steps away from being completed. While this still means we’ll have a few months of scripting, polishing, proofreading, and other supplementary writing to do, it does mean we’re in the home stretch. In addition, I’ve been working on a little side project (I’ll announce that in a week or two), both to unwind a bit from finishing up Hallowford, and to help transition in writing from Burden of Command‘s earthier, more direct style to something fit for a project with a more circumspect and courtly tone.
Long story short, I’m getting ready to start on the primary writing phase of Lords of Infinity.
In addition, new installments of A Soldier’s Guide to the Infinite Sea, and An Adventurer’s Guide to the Fledgling Realms are now up.
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.

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.

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.
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.

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.
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.
It’s the second week of the month, which means it’s time for me to upload another installment of The Soldier’s Guide to the Infinite Sea!
This month’s article is an overview of the Knightly Orders, the organisations which serve as the most visible sign of religious faith in the Northern Kingdoms. Wealthy, prestigious, and influential each in their own ways, the Orders-Militant, Orders-Succorant, and Orders-Aspirant all serve not only as expressions of faith in the Sainted Martyrs, but also as forces to be reckoned with in the political sphere of the Northern Kingdoms. Those who have played Guns of Infinity have already had a glimpse of what being a member of a Knightly Order entails, but you should all expect a lot more Order politics in the upcoming Lords of Infinity.
