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.

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 the long-awaited history of the Royal Dragoons, showing how the regimented developed from an improvised stopgap coastal defence force established in the first days of King Alaric’s War to a hardened veteran unit by the end of the Dozen Years’ War, nearly half a century later.

The newest installment of The Soldier’s Guide to the Infinite Sea is now up!
This time, we cover the Tierran home front during the Dozen Years’ War. How did the war affect those who stayed behind, and those who were faced with the economic fallout of an overseas conflict which they never chose to take part in? Find out in this latest article, which comes in a new format to better integrate images and text.

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.
Another month means a new chapter of The Welles Report in A Soldier’s Guide to the Infinite Sea. This section covers the end of the Battle of Blogia and its immediate aftermath. I can assure you that those of you who’ve played Sabres of Infinity will have a lot to like in this bit.

September’s Patreon Content update is a bit late, sorry about that. Work has been a bit hectic lately, and I’ve been trying to keep a whole lot of plates in the air at the same time.
Nonetheless, the latest installment of The Soldier’s Guide to the Infinite Sea is up for public viewing now. This part of the Welles Report focuses on the climactic hours of the Battle of Blogia. With Prince Khorobirit’s battle plan proceeding far too well and the King’s Army on the ropes, Countess Welles describes the crucial actions which allowed the Duke of Wulfram’s army to preserve itself against all odds.
Only two more parts of The Welles Report remain to be uploaded. After that, I’ll be presenting a selection of potential topics every month to patrons, so that they can vote for the subject of the next article.
If you want to get in on that voting process, feel free to donate to my Patreon. Those who donate $1.00 a month will be able to get access to these updates a week in advance. The $2.00 tier comes with the ability to vote on the next topic to be covered. At $10.00 a month, you’ll even be able to suggest future topics yourselves.
I’ve been keeping quite busy over the last month. There’s a lot of new work I’ve been throwing myself into, including The Cryptkeepers of Hallowford, the sequel to The Hero of Kendrickstone (expect a page for that to pop up sometime in the next few months). There’s also another new project which I am very excited about, but I’m not supposed to give away anything about that one quite yet.
Rest assured though, this month’s update for A Soldier’s Guide to the Infinite Sea hasn’t been delayed. This latest installment of Countess Welles’ report focuses on the first few hours of the Battle of Blogia itself, from the initial artillery barrage to the infantry engagement, all the way up to just moments before the fateful point when Mikhail of Khorobirit commits his Church Hussars.
As always, if you’re interested in seeing more world building and setting articles, feel free to donate to my Patreon. Not only would you be supporting further installments, but you’ll also get access to updates a week early!
