Volume 01 REWORKED

Hey guys, I’m finished, the whole volume 1 has been reworked and posted, though I’ll still need to make the last few changes on RRL. The final bits were chapter 4, the epilogue, the extras, and the afterword.

Finally, this is something I wanted to do for a while, and I also like to do Volume 2 one day (though this might be far away, considering that I’m not as far with the new stuff as I want to be right now). With this, the first-time readers will have less of a heart attack when reading the early bits of the story.

Would I do things differenty nowadays? Of course, my writing improves (I hope), my idea of the story is better framed, but I’m still proud at the work I’ve done. The moment I may actually redo things is the moment I decided to give a premium version a try.

Like before, I share the pics with you, this time it’s two status pages at the end (which becomes a staple starting with volume 3) and a black/white-illustration. MioChin actually panicked about drawing them kiss, but after some conversation, we found things he feels more comfortable with… but I will force him one day to make a kiss-illustration… oops, spoiler! 😛

Momokawa Kyou Priest Level 20 (Epilogue)

I like to thank the people of the now closed DRAFT-group for their help with the edits, also Orion Dye, who does the PR for me now despite being a Patron for finishing where they left off. Thanks you a bunch guys!

I also might try making a .pdf or E-book-file for the volumes, will try if I can do it, when I want to work, but can’t write for whatever reason. 😉

Volume 05 – Chapter 3-4

Here we are, the final part of chapter 3! With more enemies, you start appreciating any potential allies more. Kenta is

Well, first Extra is still laying low for me to get some mental distance to it. Also need to research SAO-base story once more, have some XXXs where I didn’t know a name or a number. Still, hope to polish it next week and put it on Patreon.

Also got a fast chibi when I looked at some of the design drafts for the next volume. Should I ask MioChin to make more of them when he has time?

Next time, we look at how Kenta faces the people, who are right in a sense, while he’s also right to want to stay alive, which makes it a right vs. right situation, while the wrong is doing nothing, hiding in plain sight…

Kenta drawn by Dorothee Wittstock

Hey guys, I’m back from the convention and I brought you something, an artwork from fantasy illustrator Dorothee Wittstock. I asked for a more realistic version of a character and she chose Kenta. 😉

Still, there is something wrong here. Can any of you tell me what? 😀

Character-design Inoue Masahiko

Hey there, a little update. MioChin and I have finished the character-design for Inoue Masahiko, Kyou’s friend and leader of the “superfriends.” If you look at him, you may find yourself asking, why he isn’t the protagonist of the story.
Do yourself a favor and do not compare Masahiko and Kenta side by side, as it may lead to dismay and the feeling of being betrayed. ^^’

For now, the character-design is viewable in the images of volume 2, though things may change in the future. Guess, why we worked on this. 😉

Volume 05 – Chapter 1-2

Two done, two to go to finish Chapter 1. This is a chapter about believable lies and reaping what was sown. Quite an odd combo. We also have a new illustration!

Currently, I’m somewhat busy writing the next thing after volume 5, I’m almost done with the alpha-draft, though I already know that I’ll change some things in the beta-draft anyways (less about what happened overall, more about some choices and descriptions).  Also need to write the canonical extra, and… sometimes a hobby is just a bunch of work. Still, having people read my stuff makes me incredible happy!

Remember the poll. Sadly, wordpress can only remember who voted for a week, so it’d be great if you won’t use it to vote a second time… Not like I can track it, votes are anomynous.

Like before the break, would be really appreciated, if you would take your time to vote on TWF. No account needed, just a few clicks, and a great help for me.

 

EDIT: Oh, noticed that Akashi and Darius Drake recommended the story on NUF, thank you! 😉

Volume 05 – Chapter 1-1

Here we are, the first of four parts of the first chapter in volume 5. The party enters Goldbrunn and witness, that being in a fantasy city isn’t that nice as it sounds.

This time, I’ve included a poll for the non-canonical Extra at the end of the volume. I got some nice responses about last volume’s Pokémon-theme, so I like to know if you want to have a continuation, another setting (like Sword Art Online,  Mario, Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, DC, Marvel, etc.) or if you like something entirely different.

I also added a status page onto the prologue, as it’s Kyou in the [Cook]-class it made too much sense to add it there after all. But I copied it for you here.

Next time, the four will be in an inn since the beginning of volume 2. Finally, some time to explore some of the difficulties that come with civilization.

Happy Easter!

Volume 5’s Cover is here, the Volume will follow!

Hey guys, PR to Volume 5 is done, I just need to check the last two chapters, than I’m done with the main-story. There were some quagmires on the way, but I’ll start with volume 5 this weekend or next one, depending on how I can make things work. I would rather start tomorrow instead of next week, personally…

The cover is finally finished and you can look at it today. I have to say, the alleys of the city are quite beautiful! 😉

Volume 5 Status February

Hey guys, I think it’s time for me to say hello and give a short status report. Volume 5 is fully written and pre-edited, we’re going through the edits right now. I was a bit hampered in writing the new stuff and looking at the edits, but I hope I’ll get to write more often now, as I changed some of my circumstances.

MioChin was very diligent and has already made 6 illustrations for the next volume (double of the usual amount, mostly due to difficulties to pick scenes and his personal preferences), look forward to it. Also, there will be a new character-design.

Aside from that, he also made another pic of one of the girls in a specific class, this time it’s Kyou as a [Cook]. I made a variation using a previous draft. 😉 Might be useful when I make status pages for the volumes 1-3… at some point.

I hope I can start releasing the next volume in March.

Status Pages end Volume 4

Here they are, I added them to the Images and Epilogue of Volume 4, but for easier access, I also put them here. 😉

I realized, that the last Priest-status from Kyou I posted had to be the one of level 5, Kyou has got a long way since then. 😀
