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.


March Content Update

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.

As usual, this installment was made possible by my supporters on Patreon. If you’d like to see more of this kind of content, feel free to become a patron. Donors at the $1-a-month tier get access to new articles a week in advance, while those who commit $2 a month get the ability to vote on next month’s article, as suggested by the $10-a-month backers.


February 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 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 subject for this month’s article was chosen by my $2-a-month tier backers on Patreon, who are currently voting for the topic of next month’s article. If you want to support my efforts in presenting more of the Infinite Sea’s worldbuilding, or want your own say in what I should be working on next month, feel free to make a pledge and vote before the deadline on the 19th.

 


January Content Update

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.

As always, if you’d like to support more content like this, feel free to pledge to my Patreon. Those who back $1 a month get early access to new installments. $2 backers get to vote on next month’s article, and $10 backers get to suggest future topics!

 


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.
