Haha yes I should do more research on military ranks indeed...
anyway, will probably fix this when together with Aleema we'll rewrite a bit the ending to match the sequel starting events/conditions!
About sharing the savegames I looked in the library docs and shouldn't be a problem, of course not all the items, but keeping the skills and choices made (which side you joined, etc) should be simple.
p.s. so who was your favorite romance?
