The TL;DR is that after this arc The New Chimera is going on a sort of hiatus for a while, but I highly recommend reading the paste for more information because it's not as cut and dry as a simple hiatus.
Hey, tomorrow's chapter is being pushed back to Monday. Between starting my new internship and spending some more time with my friend group this week, I haven't had nearly as much time to write as I would like. I don't need a full week break this time, the extra day should be plenty. Sorry, and thanks for your understanding!
I was thinking of updating The New Chimera's cover, so I took ten minutes and whipped something up in Adobe Spark (as opposed to finding a free photo from a website and using paint, which is what I did for the current cover).
I've got another series in the works, another GB/GL series with a heavier focus on the LitRPG side of things. I'll be delving into some light spoilers for the first chapter (which is up on Patreon for free), and the second chapter (2-8 are in the 1$ tier, 9 and 10 are 3$, 11 and 12 are 5$. The series will come to SH around the time this arc of The New Chimera ends, more on that later), as it's necessary to understand the question fully (1/3)
The general outline of our MC is that they have the worst stats possible, with the exception of Luck, which, due to a blessing from the Goddess of Fortune, is irrelevant and instead they will always get the best result possible in any situation Luck would be used. And, as what Skill is obtained when Skills are obtained is largely based on Luck (and other things, the system isn’t the same as The New Chimera’s), the idea is that our MC will eventually be strong through synergy of Skills (2/3)
That being said, our MC will get a decent amount of Skills relatively close together during their training, and I’ve been debating how to handle that. So, what do you all think you would find most enjoyable to read (actual Skills acquired will not change at all)?
1: All Skills are shown when they are obtained
2: Skills are shown when they are relevant
3: Passing mention is made of what Skills are obtained, then as 2
4: As above, with full Skills in spoilers in the AN 5: Something else
Hey all, hate to have to do this again, but it's been a bit of a rough week for me and I'm going to have to take a break again. Between finals and quarantine killing my creativity I've been unable to work on a new chapter without forcing things, and I don't want to overly stress myself and make quality suffer as a result. (1/2 because I talk too much)
I know this is the second time in just a monthish, but I hope that everyone can understand it's a bit of a rough time for me. Sorry about this, but hopefully once quarantine is lifted things will be back to normal and we won't be having any breaks for the foreseeable future!
So, as much as I hate to do this, I'm going to have to take a week off. The quarantine's absolutely killed my creativity, and I don't feel confident in being able to put out something that would be up to my usual quality. So, instead, I'm going to take some time, relax, and get those creative juices flowing again.
Well, looks like this time around it only took me around a week and a half, but we've got a full five chapter buffer on Patreon, so it should, finally, be completely up, with great timing to boot! If you pick that five dollar option, it is literally one chapter away from finishing the current arc, and I'm hoping to have that done by Sunday when I make a regular release here on SH
There might be a slight delay on posting to Patreon (By a day or two) when compared to SH for the next week or two if you pick the 5 dollar tier, but I'm hoping to have the next chapter (that aforementioned last chapter in the arc) done in time for Sunday, at which point there would be no delay from there on out. I haven't actually started on it yet, but I'm in sort of a groove right now and I know exactly what's going to happen, so I don't foresee any difficulties.
Anyway, that's all I have to say for now. I'll have a similar message up in the next chapter of The New Chimera, and then I'll stop shilling Patreon. Unless, people are like 'Hey I didn't know you had a patreon and would have pledged if I did, so I wish you said this earlier', in which case...um, guess I could put in something at the start of my author's notes, but that's an edge case so...
Whatever. I'm rambling, hope you all have a great day!
It only took like two months, but I've finally built up a three chapter buffer on Patreon, so second tier is good to go!
As of the time of writing this, I'm expecting to get up to five chapters of backlog finished soon(tm). I've got the general idea of what's to come in the next...3 to 5 chapters sketched out, depending on how long the events end up being in writing, so it'll just be a matter of getting them actually written.
Just finished the glossary! It's a little rough around the edges, and I'm still not 100% sure I didn't miss someone, but go check it out, there's some fun-fact type info in there and also better appearances for everyone to help in visualization.
And the first chapter of my new story is up too, but it's only up for $5 patrons. It'll be coming to the other patron tiers eventually, and once I have the next 5 chapters made I'll make the first one free as a teaser.
So, hey everyone, it's me with something a little different.
I just launched a Patreon, and I'll talk about it a little more in depth next release, but rest assured that it won't affect releases here in any way. I'm not going to be in-your-face about it either, since this is just a hobby and not something that's funding my life. It's a bit bare at the moment but I'm working on getting it all filled up.
In other news, I have officially decided that I'm going to start work on a new series. Keyword start. Like the rewrite, this is going to be stuff done in my "off" time and won't be affecting The New Chimera's releases in any way.
