It’s time for more world building and cultural knowledge dumps! Those familiar with William Gibson are probably wondering to themselves “Luther, did you just steal the ‘knowledge dump as informal lesson’ concept directly out of the beginning of Neuromancer?” To which I can heartily reply, “Not intentionally, but now that I’m looking at it again, kinda, yeah…”
I had this idea for the unit-guidon-as-regimental-trophy-rack thing for years, and I’m so glad to finally have a chance to use it. Keep that in mind when you have cool little fiction ideas that don’t have any usable context. Jot them down somewhere, in a book, google doc or maybe just your phone. Either way hold onto them, they might end up being useful later.
Thanks for reading,
