  1. Still doesn't work for me. Get this screen no matter what I do, and I'm already in JP locale. Does the RTP need to be a specific language? And where does it need to extract to?
  2. Oh nice, you're using DeepL. That's the one I used while trying to translate it myself, but I ran into completely different errors lol. If you have a NVidia GPU, I'd recommend using Sugoi instead though (there's a tutorial online by the T++ dev iirc), would probably be better suited to games like this one given how it works. Though if you're in too deep with DeepL to turn back and use another engine, I totally get that lol
  3. So I was looking to translate this and run a playthrough to check the differences, but I noticed something both interesting and frustrating in the process. Whatever's changed between versions, RPG Maker runs into the "Cannot read Actors.json" (paraphrasing, not the exact title) error if you try to open the unpacked project in the editor. While it says "actors.json," that's the message it returns if anything in the game can't be read, regardless of the file in question. Annoying for me, as I like to mess with games I play every now and then, but that's how it goes. I had some trouble with the message boxes, so I haven't played very far into the game. But if I don't find any errors, I can drop a link/make post of it, if it's considered appropriate. Idk what's okay in this situation, given tsor's comment above, but if it's fine, then I may as well lol
  4. So I'm revisiting this game for the first time in forever without remembering anything about it, and I seem to be stuck. How do I recruit the other heroines? According to the comments here there was a quest brother boi gives you to do first, but I sped through the dialogue by accident and now I'm stuck. I've gone through the entire forest from what I can understand and I still can't find anything. I also tried looking in the project files, but I can't read the anything of anything and thus can't figure out wtf happens when. So yeah, anyone know how to recruit the other heroines? Edit: Yeah I've figured it out by now, might potentially have some issues relating to diapers later (had to restart playthrough today because I soflocked myself out of diapering all the heroines as opposed to just the 1), but we'll see.
  5. So, changed my username and shit from WriterForce6XV to this. Also renovated my bio because dear GOD it was cringe. Changed my pfp and banner to a pic relevant to an original story I plan to release eventually. Once I finish the first arc, I'll post one chapter a week of arc one while working on the second arc. Once I finish arc two, same shit, rinse and repeat. Arcs will vary in length, but the first one might be a bit of a big boi.

    Apart from that, I've rewritten the whole of Detention into an original story called Descent, but I am now faced with the herculean task of converting it all to third person... which is going to be hell on earth, but I'll get it done eventually. But like the above story, I'll be releasing the story one chunk at a time, just on a smaller scale. See, the story is structured around "event clusters," which are periods of time where a lot of stuff happens in-story. In between each event cluster is usually a stretch of unremarkable time for the characters, who will just reference it in passing. I've written out all of the first cluster, with the last chapter also including part of the second, but I want to convert all the cluster one chapters into third person before releasing, and well... the above commentary on that still very much applies.

    Anyway, that's about it. Catch y'all later!

    1. Night Rain

      Good luck with those.

  6. I'm switching to third person for all my stories from now on. It's easier, faster and more versatile than first person, so I'll be using it for everything from this point forward.

  7. Whelp, girlfriend is ghosting me, seems to have muted me, and I have no idea why. I already deal with enough depression as it is. I'll be off the grid for a while. Sorry to those who read my stories, but I won't be posting anything for a while. Hope you can forgive me by the time I get back. Sorry, and goodbye.

    1. Big Girl Stacy

      I'm sorry that happened to you, I'm sure it's a shitty feeling. I hope you feel better soon.

    2. pestulens

      Rough brake.

      And I know depression is a bitch. If it helps, I'll be looking forward to what you do when you get to the other side.

  8. So I mentioned this on my Deviant Art profile, but I decided to rewrite Detention as an original story. I'm trying to steer away from writing SAO stuff and write more original stories, and this is just one example of that. Sorry, I know some people may not exactly be happy to hear this, but I just figured it was about time to stop. I might still continue ODGAD, but for now I just want to stop with SAO in general.

    With Detention though, it was only a few chapters in and it was a real life AU, so I figured it was early enough in development for me to just redo it. Some of the chapters aren't changed all that much, but others have a lot of changes. I've actually finished rewriting all six of the currently posted chapters along with chapter seven, but I want to wait until later on in development so that I can consistently release chapters on a regular basis without massive wait times between updates. I won't wait till I'm finished with the whole thing, but this time I want a reserve even bigger than ODGAD's so that I can catch problems in the story retroactively from even further back than I could with ODGAD.

    Sorry for the bad news, and hope to see you in the rewrite!

    1. Dronz

      This is perfectly fine and understandable. 

  9. You're the first person to ask, but that's fine, it's a totally valid question. And honestly I'm glad someone finally asked it, because I feel it's a rather interesting behind the scenes style topic. To put it simply, I have a document on Google Docs which explains how all the stats work at certain ranges of "proficiency." I know how everything works and I often math out what the numbers should realistically be and then write the story accordingly. But I'm not perfect, so I occasionally miscalculate things, and I sometimes also think of ways to revise the stats and new things to add for specific stat ranges. This is one reason why I keep the document private for the most part, since knowing how the numbers work kinda takes the magic out of it, in multiple ways. I know that I said I'd put it simply and still wrote a lengthy paragraph, but this is the abridged version, going into detail would turn it into a full on essay. xD Thanks for asking, and I hope this is a satisfying answer! :3
  10. This isn't the last you'll be seeing of continence-related potions. But at the same time, that's only the beginning of the ways players can get hit with continence debuffs, whether temporary or lasting indefinitely until overwritten/forcibly removed. Look forward to the ways I'll keep the kinky shit fresh
  11. New chapter of ODGAD released, lezzgooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  12. Yoooooooooooooooooo, I’m finally back! Chapter 28, the third chapter of the next arc is more or less done, just waiting for my editor to approve one small, final revision later tonight. I figure that’s close enough to being complete that I can post an update, so here we are. I’ve offhandedly mentioned this a couple of times, but the next arc has been really fun for me to write. It’s where this story first begins to diverge from canon, in a way that imo makes the story and the world a lot more interesting. As a result of how fun it is, I’ve had a much easier time writing it. Even the gap between my status update on the Org saying that the reserve was finally rebuilt, which was three weeks ago, was largely because halfway through writing chapter 28, my editor and I noticed an issue with the past few chapters which suggested a larger problem with my writing as a whole, so he and I spent a while focusing on revising the chapters which had this issue. Once it was resolved, I got back to work on chapter 28, and finished it in short order. So yeah, I think I’m in much better shape to push out chapters more consistently from here on out. That’s about all I need to say here. See you below! Sword Art Online: Of Death Games and Diapers Chapter Twenty-Three: Floor Two Boss Battle - Part I “All eyes on me!” In response to this familiar cry, I couldn’t help but scoff and roll my eyes at him. We were already all staring at him anyway, waiting for him to get this show on the road. I had my issues with Diavel, but I’d take him back over this clown any day… Pumping a fist, he finally got a move on. “I am Lind of the Dragon Knights guild! As representative of the first party to reach the boss chamber…” First to arrive, he said? The nerve… “I am hereby the leader of the raid party on the second floor boss!” Yeah, fuck this guy. Let’s wait for an opening, and then… “We are just two short of a full raid. But the fact we have forty-six, more than last time…” he continued with a smile. “Gives me great pride as your leader! Let’s do this, gang!” Right before I would’ve spoken up, Kibaou’s rough Kansai dialect sounded out. “Guild? We can’t even make guilds yet! Think yer so high ‘n mighty, just ‘cos you got here three hours earlier… the nerve!” “The first to arrive assumes leadership. That was the agreement, no?” Lind’s smug retort coupled with a dismissive hand wave made my skin crawl. I sighed. By that logic, I should be the leader — I found the boss room several hours before either of them. But I knew they wouldn’t accept that, so I didn’t see a point to protesting. Still, the whole situation bugged the crap out of me. I’d go up there and give them a piece of my mind, but… I looked down at my waist. I spent two days grinding for a brand new set of surprisingly lightweight black plate armor to better hide my… protection, but I had no idea how well it even worked. Its tabard and leggings covered much more than my old black shirt and skirt did, but I still felt a little paranoid about the crinkling after Nezha’s whole spiel about everyone knowing already. Not to mention, with all the potions in my system, I’ll probably wet myself during the battle… I just can’t make a big show of it like with Nezha before. While farming for my new armor the past few days, I noticed I seemed to need to pee every hour or so while on my regimen of potions. I couldn’t delay an accident for very long like this, either, and my ability to hold it degraded further and further with every new accident. When I thought about how I sent Asuna down this path, I felt really bad, like I monumentally fucked up. I really needed to make it up to her after the boss battle… she deserved better. Still… looks like she didn’t— “What’s the story, highness?” A familiar deep voice called out from behind me. I turned around just in time to catch the dark-skinned giant wave. “Other princess isn’t with you, and you’re wearing actual armor now. What’d I miss while on my business run?” I shrugged, averting my eyes like I was lying to the father I never had. “Just cause she and I are friends doesn’t mean we’re always together.” After I got that out of the way though, I turned back to face him with a smile and a wave. “Haven’t seen you since Illfang. You put in some real work in the first floor boss fight, so it’s good to see you here.” He cocked an eyebrow, smiling in turn. “Means a lot, coming from the real MVP. We’ve only got four over in team H. Whaddya say, want to join?” “That’d be great, but…” As I trailed off, I instinctively looked back over at Lind and Kibaou. They glared back. They wanted me gone, yesterday, and I knew full well that I compromised anyone who associated with me. I couldn’t do that to Agil… couldn’t— “Really? Bowing down to them? Who cares what those tools think?” Agil’s voice interrupted my thoughts, calling my eyes back to him. The staying power of those glares just now had nothing on his smile. “You bring the strength of a hundred with you. And I say we need all the strength we can get, haters be damned.” He extended his hand. I took it and gave it a good shake. “Well, if you insist…” I looked past him, over at his teammates, and they smiled back, one of them even flashing me a thumbs up. Huh… they didn’t get swept up in Lind and Kibaou’s antagonism. They didn’t mind having someone like me on their team… maybe the Assault Team had a place for me, after all. I looked back to Agil, lips widening into a smile. “So what’s team H’s job?” “Taking out the mob. Teams A to F take the boss, and they’re all Lind and Kibaou’s men, the Dragon Knights and Aincrad Liberation Squad,” Agil replied, shrugging his shoulders. I smirked, closing my eyes in satisfaction. “Normally I’d protest leaving a mid-boss like Nato to only one party, but I did just get some solid gear to test out,” I replied, knowing I could probably take Nato down myself if his patterns hadn’t changed. But then, my eyes snapped open at a nagging question. “Wait… what about the last team? If the headcount is forty-six, there should be one more.” Agil turned to point at Lind and Kibaou — more accurately, to the party seemingly begging them for something. A party I already recognized from the field boss fight. I welcomed their assistance then, but now, their presence alone made me feel uneasy. “Over there. Newbies begging to put themselves in harm’s way and fight the boss,” Agil replied, a cautious look on his face as we watched them hassle Twiddle Dumb and Twiddle Dumber. “Their admirable enthusiasm aside, I worry they don’t understand the danger. They gotta be desperate to make a name for themselves.” The «Legend Braves»… Nezha claimed with every breath that the weapon upgrade scam was entirely on him. But it would make way more sense if the others forced him into it. But they didn’t look all that malicious. Desperate to fight the boss and make a name for themselves, sure, but deceitful? Manipulative? Exploitative? I had a hard time seeing it. Still… Nezha didn’t look the part either. But he was the one who actually performed the scam, I thought with a sigh, closing my eyes for a few moments to clear my head. Can’t judge a book by its cover. Who knows what they’ve done outside the public eye? When my eyes opened again, I found their group walking over to us. Their leader… Orlando, I think? He raised a hand to wave at us as he approached. “Thou art Team H, in charge of Colonel Nato? If it be not too much trouble, we wish to join thy forces.” I had to suppress a giggle at his choice in phrasing. That’s right, I forgot… these guys role played even harder than the ninja cosplayers. Fuck, I could barely contain my laughter. But when I put two and two together that a bunch of people roleplaying as heroes might’ve forced Nezha to conduct a shady, dangerous scam, my amusement petered out pretty damn quick. The voice of one of Orlando’s men piped up right as my focus returned to the situation in front of us. “O… Orlando-san! At this rate, we’ll never…!” Cuchulainn… at least, I think that’s his name. Sounds like he’s in a bit of a rush to get their name out there. “Fool! Quibble not with such shortsighted details! Is that what a legendary hero does?!” came his leader’s swift retort. Had to admit — in spite of everything, his antics made me crack a smile. “B-But we’re already so slow out of the gate…!” his subordinate countered, desperation clear in his voice. In response, Orlando held up the first two fingers on his right hand. “It is still only the second floor. Ninety-eight lie above. No need to rush. The day will arrive, when all come to see who the true heroes are.” As his men nodded in unison, I couldn’t help but find this poetic picture ironic in the face of what they might’ve done. Some strong words he used there. True heroes, huh…? I wonder where they’re hiding, then? Because I didn’t see them anywhere. Not in the Legend Braves. Not in Lind or Kibaou’s groups. And certainly not me, Asuna, or anyone else I associated with. We were all just ordinary men and women doing whatever we could to survive and forge ahead. In that sense, the only difference between me and Nezha was the level of underhandedness in our tactics. “Now then… let us work together. It may be our first meeting…” Orlando said, turning to Agil and offering a hand. “But might I call thee: Sir Agil?” Agil, someone with no reason to suspect him, could only chuckle and give that hand a firm shake. “All right. Good to meet you, Orlando-san.” I had to admit. As little as I bought into their “hero” schtick, I had a hard time seeing them as villains either. That infectious cheer didn’t seem fake. The valorous speeches came off as corny, but not disingenuous. If I were to take them at their word, they really wanted to be heroes. But if I only considered their potential involvement in the scam, they might’ve been manipulative villains. Hero, villain… somehow, neither descriptor feels accurate. And then, Orlando turned to me. “And thee, «Black Princess».” Excuse me, but fucking what?! That’s what they call me?! I didn’t mind giving famous people nicknames in SAO. That’s fine. But did they have to be this dumb? Almost as bad as calling me a «Beater»… I really needed to start rejecting these names and substituting my own. “Thy prowess in the field of battle is rivaled only by your exquisite beauty!” he continued, making grand gestures with his hands to accentuate his embarrassing words. “I can see thy reputation as a battle savant is duly earned.” I need to stop this before it becomes even more of a cringefest… “I appreciate the compliments, but I really don’t fancy myself a princess,” I replied with a smile up at his rather tall frame. “I think I’m more of a knight. A Starless Knight.” He probably wouldn’t get the play on words, it only worked in English and I just said it in Japanese, but I still thought it had a nice ring to it even in our own language. Plus, it also made sense. A knight with no kingdom. No lords to protect. Like staring up into the vast open skies, only to find you couldn’t see the stars because of the city smog overhead. His eyes flashed in recognition, before his smile widened and he extended his hand. “Ah ha. In that case, well met… Ser Kiriko.” I blinked. Right… in medieval times, you referred to a knight as a ‘ser.’ Well, better than going by ‘princess’ or ‘beater,’ at the very least. I took his hand and shook it, offering a small nod of affirmation. As we let go, his hand shot skyward and he gave a hearty grin. “Fret not! With the ever-triumphant forces of the Legend Braves at thy disposal…” Oh for god’s sake, another heroic speech. Should’ve seen this coming… “No ox-man, whether colonel or general, can withstand the might have my treasured blade, Durandal!” At the bit about his “Durandal,” he drew his sword, a normal «Stout Brand», and held it skyward. I had to resist the urge to face-palm, but I couldn’t stop myself from cracking a smile for the faintest of moments. While he admired his gleaming blade, I had to wonder something in the face of that almost childlike enthusiasm for heroics. Could they really… not know anything about the scheme? But one look at the rest of his men, warily watching us from afar, and I couldn’t even pretend to entertain the possibility. No. They had to be involved… but how much did they know? And how many of them were in on it? The rest of the members aside, I had a hard time believing Orlando, the most outspoken one, knew anything about it. From in front of the boss door, I heard a familiar voice cough to get our attention. We turned back to Lind, finally looking ready to lead us into battle. “Good, everyone’s assigned now.” But he forgot something important. He continued, seemingly unaware of what he missed as he turned to the boss door. “Then let us open… the door to our triumph over—” “Just a minute.” Agil’s deep voice cut him off, forcing Lind to look back. “Are you sure you’re not relying too heavily on the strategy guide’s information this time?” the dark-skinned giant continued unhindered by Lind’s blue-balled expression. “Shouldn’t we prepare for the possibility that they’ve made changes since the beta test, like on the first floor?” Lind’s eyes narrowed. He looked at me, then at the ground beneath his feet. “Of course. I have no intention… of repeating that mistake.” Agil’s reply didn’t miss a beat. “Then we need a clear plan for retreat,” he said, his voice calm, yet firm. “If we notice different patterns from the guide’s information, we need to be prepared to pull back temporarily and rethink our strategy. As our raid leader, is that all right with you?” Agil phrased it as a question, but his voice made it perfectly clear how little of a choice we really had. A round of nods made their way through everyone in the room, until Lind himself gave a nod in concession. “Yes, that will do,” he said, the impatience finally starting to show in his tone. “And with that, let us open—” “Hang on just a sec!” “What now?!” Kibaou’s shout cucked Lind once again. I couldn’t help but smile. After the shit he pulled on floor one, seeing Lind get blue balled twice back to back felt really cathartic even though it came from Kibaou of all people. Almost wanted to laugh at the blue-haired bitch. “I agree with Agil. The strategy guide’s a problem. I hate ta say it, but…” Kibaou clarified in a defiant tone. “it’s bein’ written by an intel broker who ain’t never seen the inside of the boss chamber. But we know we got at least one here with us who’s fought the thing herself. So I say we get her take on it, yeah?” The hell’s he playing at? The eyes in the room all zeroed in on me. I suddenly found myself quite glad I switched from a revealing skirt to black plate armor… because otherwise, I worry my diaper would show a lot easier. I cleared my throat and began to speak. “The regular Tauruses in the dungeon have the same attacks they did in the beta. The boss should use sword skills which are an extension of that pattern,” I started off, looking around to make sure people understood. “Avoid getting hit with double debuffs at all costs. If you get stunned while already stunned, it becomes paralysis. And every player in the beta who got paralyzed, well…” As the room descended into a harsh silence, a chilled breeze blew in. I saw many a face look unnerved, scared, and disheartened. But I could tell, they all knew. They could either die to this boss or die when their real body wasted away to nothing. Slowly, the resolve returned to their faces, and they all turned to the door. “Avoid the second hit. That’s priority number one, then,” Kibaou affirmed with a nod. Without missing a beat, he stepped forward and pushed the boss door open without even waiting for Lind. “Let’s git goin’.” The door began to move on its own accord soon after, and people began to walk forward, disregarding their supposed ‘leader’ entirely. He pathetically yelped, “Hey! Who said you could—?! I’m the leader here! Dammit, let’s just go! Hip! Hip! Hurrah!” Though the raid stopped advancing, they didn’t respond to his rallying. They stared past him, mouths agape. Honestly, I couldn’t blame them — anyone would lose their courage after seeing that sight for the first time. In the center of the coliseum-like room… Lind slowly turned around, his sword arm going slack at the horror. “They’re… huge…!” The two Tauruses towered over us like gods. So tall they made us look like ants. I broke into a nervous smile. Time to put this new armor to the test! “Pattern B! The three hit combo, «Thrice Blow»!” Two slanted uppercuts crashed against the weapons and shields of Agil’s team H with a deafening clang, before the final uppercut swung his war hammer in a radiant upward arc, poised to activate «Numbing Impact» from above as soon as Nato’s delay wore off. That skill’s ground-targeting stun effect bypassed shields completely. I didn’t hesitate for a moment before leaping into the fray, the sword in my left hand glowing a brilliant blue. “You’re mine.” My blade’s rightward first strike tore through his kneecaps with a satisfying snap. The beast fell to his knees with a desperate yowl as I struck his pectorals with a slash in the reverse direction. I gracefully twirled around to Nato’s rear, striking his back with a third horizontal strike, before finally hitting his flank with a strike from the left. Four curved lines of blue light flashed outwards, tracing a square through the air. In my tiny moment of reprieve before Nato responded to my assault, I panted lightly, wiping the sweat from my brow with my free hand. Damn… even after grinding for my armor and gaining a few levels, I still don’t have the stamina to fire «Horizontal Square» off casually. Nato raised his warhammer high overhead, and it began to glow bright yellow sparks. There you are… Numbing Impact! I turned to face the tanks while jumping out of range. “Here it comes! Evade!” As everyone jumped back, Nato’s hammer crashed against the stone-tiled flooring, sending tendrils of electricity in all directions. No one stood close enough to take damage, but the stun radius, shown by the sparks, extended much further out. One shot my way along the floor, but I jumped high into the air just before it would’ve made contact, and it faded out shortly thereafter. I evaded the stun, and everyone else left its radius entirely. I smirked up at Nato while his skill’s animation continued. Nice try, shitstain. “He’s in his delay! Switch!” I called out right as the glow faded from Nato’s hammer. Orlando didn’t waste a moment. “Team G Braves, sally forth!” While the Legend Braves assaulted the boss, I sighed, closing my eyes for a moment as I took deep breaths. “Man, if Asuna made it, we could’ve handled this thing by ourselves…” “Ha ha ha! What’s wrong? You look lonely!” a familiar baritone voice called out from behind, his dark hand holding a stamina potion over my right shoulder for me to take. “Missing your partner?” I turned to face him, snatching the offered potion out of his hand. “I already said why at the meeting. I need to be able to fight enemies like this on my own,” I replied, eyes narrowed. “But what about you? You’re using a cheapo store-bought axe instead of the rare double-sided one you had before.” ‘Fsssssssshhh…’ As we both glugged down our potions, mine for stamina and his for HP, I heard a familiar sound, and felt a familiar warmth below the waist. I instinctively tried to clamp down, but my weakened sphincter could do nothing to stem the flow. The burning sensation continued melting into the crotch of my diaper, unabated by my feeble attempts to hold it. I didn’t even notice I was peeing my pants until it was too late to stop it. Just a few days ago, I could hold it just fine. Had the potions really affected me that much…? Agil finished drinking his potion around the time that the stream died down. He sighed, before replying to my question after what felt like an eternity of me helplessly peeing my pants like an overgrown toddler. No, even toddlers were old enough to start potty training… “Hey, shit happens,” Agil replied with a hearty smile. A knowing grin, one that almost made me sweat under the pressure. “Don’t worry about my performance. I’ll keep up my marks and then some — I spent half the floor power-leveling for these SoBs.” Draining the last of the stamina potion and tossing it aside, I instinctively cast a glance over at the Legend Braves and forced a smile. “Not what I’m worried about.” Even Agil fell victim to the upgrade scam… his answer made that obvious. He tried to upgrade his axe, they secretly stole it, and then he spent the rest of the floor power-leveling to make up the difference in time. Should I tell him? Agil struck me as a chill guy. I could probably trust him not to go overboard. But still… if someone overheard us, that could spell disast— Agil followed my line of sight, giving them an appraising smile as they hacked away at the boss until his second HP bar disappeared, leaving only one more. “They’re not just for show, huh? Hope you can keep up with that waddle slowing you down, miss Starless Knight.” My face flushed scarlet at what his words implied. Fuck! He knows… “Oh, piss off…” I replied, rolling my eyes. He had a good laugh at that. “Not judging, but that’s your thing, not mine. Anyway miss Soggy Knight, I think the Braves might need a Switch soon.” Pinching my nose to force myself to ignore the jab, I nodded, looking back over to them. Looked like for now, they had Nato sorted. “Thing is, it’s not the force wailing on Nato that concern me. It’s them.” I pointed over to the main force. As if on cue, right as Agil and I looked over to them, Baran raised his double-sided war hammer high overhead with both hands. Kibaou, Lind, and their entire force froze up in terror, unable to even cry for help. Man, Lind and Kibaou are hopeless… if only Asuna were here, she could lead the clearers fighting Baran while I took care of Nato. The massive taurus swung his battle hammer down, sending half a dozen men flying in all directions from the point of impact, then crashing down to earth, yellow lights spinning around in the air above their heads. That many stunned in a single blow… Agil nodded at my assertion. “They don’t look so good…” Gonna be honest, with how long ago I wrote this chapter, I don’t really have much in the way of commentary. I’m more focused on the new arc, and idk how many people even read these author note blurbs, so I’ll probably just keep it brief. See you next time!
  13. I've mostly been doing status updates for this story on my profile, but I figured this one needs to be a bit more accessible. Long story short, I'm finished rebuilding the reserve. The reserve is always supposed to be the next five chapters after whatever is currently public. I now have five unreleased chapters again, which means the reserve is rebuilt. Thus, as soon as I finish chapter 28 to maintain the five chapter reserve buffer, I'll be able to release another chapter publicly. It actually didn't take very long at all to continue once I hit my stride. There was a period of about a week where I didn't work on it because a new Genshin patch went live, but after the buzz of that died down, I kept up a good pace with my writing and finished two chapters in a pretty short amount of working days. A big part of me maintaining motivation and momentum has been that the new arc I started a few reserve chapters back has been a lot of fun (it's less of an adaptation of canon arcs and more of an exploration of aspects of canon that the main story arcs left untouched, which I greatly prefer), so I don't imagine chapter 28 will take too terribly long to finish. I've also got some scene ideas I plan to go with, which is already half the battle. Anyway, just wanted to pop in and let you guys know things are back in working order. I won't give an exact date for the next chapter, but there's a good chance it'll be pretty soon. Catch you guys next release!
  14. I'm having way too much fun with the new arc of ODGAD... turns out not being forced to adapt a poorly written source material is a lot more engaging for me... especially when the canonically untouched floor I can write out with relative freedom is arguably the most interesting floor in the game due to the sheer density of important events that canon only briefly spoke of through info dump monologues after the fact.

    After I finish the current chapter, chapter 27 (which I'm over halfway done with now and am showing no signs of slowing down on), I'll finally be done rebuilding the reserve. Then I just need to write chapter 28 and I can release something for the first time into 4.2 billion years.

    I've finally hit my stride again with the new arc, and that probably means more frequent releases from here on out. Look forward to it!
