    An example would be referring to Smed with his full name "John Smedly CEO of SOE" rather than just smed, smedly, or the smedster.
  • This is something I kind of messed with, but if people don't like it, I'll go with something slightly more informal.

    Admittedly... That's just how I write. I have a couple people working with me now, who are going to try and reign that in in the future.

  • Good point, will look into it.

  • Also, the PDF doesn't copy/paste very easy!

Thank you very much for the feedback. I appreciate people critiquing what I have done, because frankly it's the only way the AI will improve.
