Yeah, I am unfortunately a very fast yet very inaccurate typist. I DO go back and edit each chapter before posting (both for typos and for improved phrasing), but plenty still slip by. I need to go through them all again I guess.
I actually really wish I had spent more prep time working out the units and how they work, game balance, that sort of thing, but hey, spontaneity was one of my goals for this story, so I suppose that's one of the sacrifices. I didn't really describe the Dreadnoughts because I figured their name would give the impression of a big, powerful, slow-moving machine on its own. I do think I described the Dragoons, but it was way back in Chapter 1 so I don't blame you for forgetting.
I've always tried to walk a fine line between detailed description and leaving it vague enough for the reader to fill in the blanks on their own. I'm a very visual designer, so I could definitely write a description of each character/object down to every little aspect, but that slows down the story to an unacceptable degree.
I currently have the next chapter about half-way done. It focuses on Jayle.
