And finally, an update from me =3
I can't think of anything profound, so I'll let the new chapter itself do the talking. Let's see how well the battles are understood when I take tactics up another notch. I do however, suggest bringing your favorite battle music starting from scene #3; preferably something more traditional in style~
The soundtracks I listened to get in the mood during the writing of the chapter includes:
- Imperial Conflict and Melee Cafe by Jeff van Dyck (Rome Total War).
- Esper Battle (Final Fantasy XII) by Sakimoto Hitoshi.
- Barbarian Horde (Gladiator) and Roll Tide (Crimson Tide) by Hans Zimmer.
Lastly, since a number of readers have requested it, here's the author's notes in regards to how Hyperion came to be and a general listing of the historical references embedded in the chapters. This will be steadily updated as I finish work on volume two.
