Volume 2 – Cover!

This might come from the left field, but currently, MioChin is on fire. He’s finished some stuff for later on my behalf (like certain character-designs for future characters) and he also made the rework on the Volume 2 cover in lightspeed.

Of course I won’t hold it back from you, finally that gap was closed! Now it’s time to show you the magnifient piece of work MioChin did!

Volume 2 Textless Cover

With the new cover also comes a new banner. You can see it by having this post selected or any volume 2 related page (I hope).

 

Next work will be a bit of character-artwork, an illustration for volume 1 maybe, and the cover of volume 5!

Volume 04 – Chapter 4-2

Second part of the fourth chapter, Kenta’s in deep trouble. Though he’s a problem-solver in his heart, so he might make it. He also got ‘the Hood.’ Its special powers will lead him through thos confrontation. Don’t underestimate ‘the Hood,’ as ‘the Hood’ rules supreme.

I’m still open to suggestions to non-canoncial Extras, my brain is a bit stimulated, but I won’t let the idea of the century go away by saying ‘I don’t need it anymore.’ MioChin is almost finished with the cover of the second volume, something dear to me, as I really like to close that gap! Looks great so far!

I want to thank Fossil and erowarrior again for another mentioning in NFU, though I ask myself what makes Kenta a “specialized MC” in your eyes, erowarrior. Not that I can’t see it, but I’m curious!

Next time, we’ll take a look what the girls are up to. It’ll be dramatic, it’ll be breath-taking, it’ll be great. I hope…

Volume 04 – Chapter 4-1

Here it is, the start of the fourth chapter. Kenta finally meets someone, who may or may not answer his questions… he shows how capable he is with women… ouch, this can’t be good, right?

I’m still working on the canonical extra, because I’ve rewritten it about halfway again. It’s clearly good, that I work on something like this, as it’s also expanding the setting, but this comes a bit from the left-field. Though may new approach may finally be the one I’m looking for.

I’ve dropped my former idea to the non-canonical extra, now I’m looking for another idea. Or maybe, I’ll just include some party-banter here, I liked them much in Baldur’s Gate II, though I still have to rethink it… ah, the end of the volume is too soon, I need more time! ;_;

Next time, though, it’s going to be tough. Will Kenta’s idea succeed, or will he again fall into a big mess? Stay tuned! 😀

 

And please vote on TWF! ^^’

Volume 04 – Chapter 3-3

Here it is, part 3 of chapter 3 of volume 4. A last hint to what’s happeing around them, and the evidence: Speaking with others don’t always solve your problems. Sometimes it may give you some ideas, but no solutions.

Right now, I’m sick, good thing that I worked in front to provide you with chapter-parts, even if I’m a bit handicapped… Well, time to get better.

Next time, we’ll find first clues of what exactly happens around the party. Some questions might be answered, other might pop up. 😉

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!
