Conversion Guide

551 20 10

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 CHANGED:

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.
