Hey! Smitty here!
I know this is a ton of stuff before the actual novel and you want me to just get on with it, but I have to let you know that the conversion to Iron Empire is going to make reading this book a bit odd for the time being. When I'm done many things won't be the same, but the overall story will be intact.
The issue is, I can only edit so fast. If you go from an edited chapter to a non-edited chapter you'll be like
"Huh? What the heck is a Griffin? Where are the Goliath mechs?"
...so I'm going to include a SUPER INFORMAL chart here that may change over time, but will help you at least grasp the changes made so everything isn't absolutely confusing.
CHARACTER AND MECH SPOILERS BEYOND HERE. SKIP AHEAD IF YOU DON'T CARE TO READ ABOUT THE CHANGES BEING MADE.
Chapters will be updated three at a time, in packs. I'll post an update here whenever another three chapters is complete, and will do so until the entire book is done.
I'll mark the COMPLETELY CHANGED chapters here so you know where the editing currently ends.
As of right now, current chapters edited include:
Pack Zero: Beginnings and Endings
Pack One: Kettles and Combat
Pack Two: Meatshields and Mallet
Pack Three: Prowlers and Private Park
Pack Four: Danger and Duct Tape
(Plus the introduction of the soundtrack!)
Pack Five: Villains and Victory
(Plus "A Villain's Remorse: Draco's Theme"!)
Pack Six: Promotion and Premonitions
Pack Seven: Trust and Terror
(Plus "Apollo Inbound"!)
Pack Eight: Calm and Consequences
Pack Nine: Storm and Siege
Pack Ten: Doom and Dreadnought
(Plus "Unlucky Soldier"!)
Pack Eleven: Warheads and Weapons
Pack Twelve: Siblings and Scavengers
Pack Thirteen: Secrets and Spartans
Pack Fourteen: Nukes and Nightmares
Pack Fifteen: Phalanx and Preparations

Karen Canon will become Karen Buchanan, because Canon is an odd last name I made up using an online generator.
