Volume 04 – Chapter 3-2

Here it is, the second part of chapter 3. Kyou and Ara’ainn join the fray! In a sense. Also, Kenta is struggling at juggling all his feelings, thoughts, and desires concerning the girl. Making everyone happy is much of a task, especially if “everyone” includes himself.

I’ve discarded my prior idea of the uncanonical Extra of Volume 4, trying something different instead, hope my skills are up to the task… The other one is still in work, but I have too many ideas how to explore it!!! ToT

Next time, Kenta will finally share a bit of his thoughts, something that he isn’t good at.  Also, there will be more thrown into the mystery!

 

Also, I want to thank Tanaka Tomoyuki and erowarrior for mentioning my story. Though why does it come up, when OP-MCs are at least mentioned in the query? Is it Rine?

Volume 04 – Chapter 3-1

Here is the next chapter, including a new illustration. Slowly, the plot thickens… and there is a bit of world-building here, some new intel about alfar and the first mentioning of the hynoar-race.

For now, the pace slows a bit down, but I think that’s OK, as most is going on from another angle, the MCs simply can’t see. It also is the time to go a bit into the characters, as they travel.

Next time, it’ll be a bit more of regular interactions between the characters, plus the implementation of the new-found WP-activities. 😀

Volume 04 – Chapter 2-3

Final part of chapter 2. The heroes are about to up their game? Romance? Erm… to do stuff at least. Due to the structure of the chapter, this part is rather short, but it made sense to cut it in this way. At least for me.

Somehow I’m currently between about everything for this story: Writing the volume 4 Extras, writing other Extras, writing the alpha-draft of volume 6, and editing the draft of volume 5 (and I know, that I still want add some scenes)… I should focus on one, but then I have a great idea how to continue the next, or I get over a block I had before and… well, at least I have progress, though currently my time is a bit limited. ^^’

Next time things start to take form, and a new sentient species will be introduced… kinda. 😀

Volume 04 – Chapter 2-2

It’s here, the big battle and afterwork, which takes about half of the whole chapter 2. Sometimes it can be hard to decide where to set the cut for each part, in this case I saw the best oppurtunity right there.

There is also a new illustration, good thing that MioChin already made all three of them, as he’s currently in the hospital… get well soon, my buddy!

I like to thanks Joal Heagney for putting my map-draft of the Eastern Wildlands on his pinterest account, and a really fat THANK YOU for Tsaimath, Fossil (who’s about to become a herald of this story) and adislt, for recommending this story on NUF as a story with a “crazy marriage system.” I think this story qualifies. 😀

Next time, we’ll meet with circumstances that aren’t described a lot in most fictional works, as it’s rather counterproductive to the whole story-telling aspect, if it’s not handled skillfully. Erm… don’t expect to much.

Volume 04 – Chapter 2-1

Hey there, the next part is out! I was a bit late this time, sorry, it’s just that sometimes it’s hard to wait for certain stuff, so I was out this morning and afternoon (local time).

Now it’s time to start the next journey, everything is still tame though. It’s time to travel southwest, to visit lands unknown to Japanese heroes. It’ll take some time to get there, especially since the volumes don’t exactly use that much time… Volume 4 will also take only a few days. So 1 fantasy-month, 50 days… This will fill some volumes, I fear. 😀

I also made some changes to my former map of this part of the Wildlands, as I forgot that I trashed my former map sketch, because it looked stupid. I already written the novel around the current design, so I somehow just forgot that it’s already established…

We can also see the new character-design of Kyou, it was MioChin’s idea to haul it over for her new class-up, it wasn’t originally intended for volume 4, but look at her, she looks more adult now… Status-page will be included next chapter! 😉

There we will also see how Kenta’s family will do in the next battle, there will be also e new illustration as well… so much at once!

Have a nice weekend! And please vote on Top Weekly Fiction, it’s just a few clicks, no account needed, and it’ll help me a lot! Sadly, the vote will only last one week! ;_;

 

Volume 04 – Chapter 1-3

The final part of chapter 1, and a new status-page there as well. The illustration was made by MioChin (in a bit of a hurry) and may be the first of an ever-growing collection of pics for the status-pages, to show Kenta and the girls in their respective classes. Though we’ll still prioritize other stuff, since there are at least 12 more to only depict volume 4 (2x Student, Ranger, Pikeman, Herbalist, Priest, Cook, Princess Knight, Accountant, Druid, Acrobat, Bookie). But having the characters in different body-types, styles, and poses is indeed a nice thought. 😀

I’ve changed the name of the [Sleepurnal]-skill to [Dormurnal], the original intent of the naming couldn’t be accomplished (discrepancies between my native language and English), so after a while I settled for something, which seems more fitting, as diurnal and nocturnal are using Latin for day and night. I chose “dorm-” because there is the term “dormant,” which at least gives the idea what this could mean.

Too bad, that there is no easy, already every-day term for being still active, while sleeping… maybe because that concept itself is so strange. 😉

What else to say to the chapter? It’s wrapping up the whole preparation-phase, a new beginning into new adventures. Of course, there is a bit of delving into Kenta’s character here, he has some time to relax, which became a luxury with 3 girls with all their needs and flaws. 😀

 

Still need to think about the non-canonical extra,  though I’m a bit closer to stuff that’s fun to write. I’m still taking suggestions though. The canonical extra will be most likely about 3 of Kenta’s classmates, that you’ve might forgot. Kenta really put them in a bad spot! ^^’

 

Next part will set the new destination and journey!

 

Volume 04 – Chapter 1-2

The second part of the first chapter of Volume 4. We take a look at the daily life of Kenta and his wives, but there is also the bad p-word involved… Do your best!!! >.<

On the art-side, we try to get some extra done in time, I hope it’ll be ready next week, just a slight add-on, but one that would make me happy. The other artwork is done for volume 4, will be great!

Still considering what to add as my non-canonical extra, either a chance for readers to ask questions to the characters, or maybe I’m starting rewriting a simple fairy tale, as I can’t help to think it’d be hilarious to see how things like Little Red Riding Hood would end up, if we set the “I hate wed”-cast in there. Your opinions or ideas?

Well, final par of chapter 1 will be released next week again, we’ll see one of many strategies to come up with, when the “p” emerges! 😉

Volume 4 – Chapter 1-1

Next part, you can see the next status-page design for now, it’s a bit more glamorous than what you could already see. Plus, it has actually new stats, Kenta in his [Ranger]-class.

There is a bit of a technical talk there, a new facette of the hero-system is revealed.  Also, how Ara’ainn and Kenta fare with their unwanted sexual attraction to each other.

Next time, the curse will reveal another very important change, which may be a bit uncomfortable. Especially for Ara’ainn. Also, there will be another wife-conference, let’s see what the girls are talking about, when Kenta is not around!

 

Another Thank you for Solracmar, who always put a good word for my story on Novel Upates.

Volume 4 – Prologue

Today we start with volume 4, one chapter-part per week without excuses (unless I end up in a hospital or something severe like that), after the disaster with volume 3, I made sure that it’s in an almost finished condition.

Well, it’s time to thank a bunch of people: Thx Overseer_Sena for mentioning my story on Novel Updates Forum. Thx truenull for the same. Very thank you, Fossil, as you have done it three times! Thank you Stuart Grosse for that Facebook-mentioning, Thank you Blakethorburn and applemonkeymanfor mentioning my story on reddit. Thank you John, for putting my on your 259  Free Humor & Comedy Ebooks-list.  😀

Finally… thank you Irina Malina Kazan? For using my first version of the volume 3 cover to be downloaded on download-wall-paper.net? I guess, it’s something? ^^’

Well, here is the prologue. It starts a few weeks after the last volume, giving Kenta the probably most important item in his whole career (even more important than the Lion’s Wedding Ring!!!).

Cover Volume 4 here!

Currently, the workings of Volume 4 are going well, though I’m a bit greedy and want to work a bit more before starting releasing it. But as I wanted to share at least something, I remembered that I still haven’t shown the cover of volume 4! So here it is, I hope you like it.

Textless Cover

Text Cover

 

Doesn’t Kenta looks like a boss here? Like: I’m surrounded by women, but who cares!

This is also the first appearance of Rine on a Mio-Chan-made cover, as there was no time to make a revise of the cover of Volume 2 so far. But maybe soon… Well, first volume 4 artwork, then we look how the time-table is faring.

Had no luck so far to find someone to make status-boxes, I guess I need to look elsewhere.

OK, that’s for now, still hoping to start releasing during July. But when I start, the chapter-parts will come in weekly. 😉

 

EDIT: Ah, also, I’ve updated the skill-encyclopedia and added summaries of volume 2 and 3 under “Misc/Synopsis,” so that everyone who wants to remember what happens don’t need to re-read everything (though they’re welcome to).
