I am curious, Damian, in "Ero Dungeon Online", how much of views he espouses are just story and how much of it is self projection of your own views?
what happened to dominion expansion? i was getting around to reading it and now it's gone
It wasn't updated in over a year, was just sitting there collecting negativity, and it just wasn't up to a standard of quality that I was proud of. It was an incredibly flawed (by my standards, at least) story that would have needed completely overhauled from the ground up and I had no interest in doing that. I also didn't want more people to start it and get into it only to never get another update.
I wanted to write a 4X LitRPG for a long time, and I forced myself to come up with an idea when I should have just waited to see if one would eventually come to me naturally. But alas, I've realized I end up dropping basically any series I force myself to write, whereas the ideas that come to me out of absolutely nowhere are the ones I actually stick with in the long run.
Cited your series in my thread as it is a successful one : https://forum.scribblehub.com/threads/tips-thread-for-all-authors-that-want-popularity-so-they-stop-asking.12243/
Really love your story Ero Dungeon Online. The opinions on sex and sexual matters are well thought out and I actually agree with a lot of them. Keep up the good work.
so The Queen’s Hound won´t get a rework? sad.
Oh, no, it absolutely will if I have any say in the matter. The problem is that I want to make sure it gets its proper justice. I'm just not going to bother publicly posting it when I keep on trying to reboot it and then end up dissatisfied with it. No point in getting people's hopes up for something unless I'm 100% sure it's going to stick around.
Apologies for no chapters this week. Mum got diagnosed with covid, and I've felt shit all week, so figured I'd just take this week to rest.
Is there any risk of Dominion Expansion going on the chopping block? A lot of your series over the life of the account have gotten the axe, so just wanted to judge the feeling if the plan is for that one to go the distance.
If you want assurance it's going to go the distance, you won't be getting any. I fucked up the story in a hundred and one ways and it's pretty much objectively my worst story both from a quality perspective and a reader reception perspective. That's why I never even bother advertising my Patreon in its chapter notes. I do, however, intend on keeping it going for as long as I feel like.
I loved tentacle caravan and I waited for more than a year for an updated and you just dropped it?
It was basically dropped for a year, all I did was clean up my story list to stories actually getting updated = P
I'm more than little sad that it was deleted though even I know it was never going to be updated. (Edit) Just realized its still on your site so its not completely gone. I get deleting it from scibblehub if you never plan to update it.
I tried a few months back to edit it and give it a proper ending, so that the whole thing could be wrapped up within one volume and the story would have a proper ending, but it just wasn't set up to be a one-volume story and any ending I could think of would be extremely unsatisfying and rushed. Felt more disrespectful to the story to give it a shitty ending for the sake of it having an ending at all than to just shelf it indefinitely.
If you think I've dropped a lot of stories, you should see how many projects I've started writing but then just never posted anywhere. If I actually posted every single story I've started in the past year alone... there would be like around 30+ more dropped stories to my name.
Fortunately, I've learned to just, you know, not post everything that I randomly get inspired for anymore like I used to. Now, just for fun:
Oof, that was 52 more stories, not just around 30. But yeah. Now you see why I don't frequently post new series anymore. I wait until I'm sure I won't be dropping them.
I see many matching my own ideas and stories you damn thief How dare you be creative and think of similar things
I haven't posted anything on my profile in a while, so, hey, how's it going?
What happened to CORE
Core had the plug pulled on it ages ago. A ton of this author's prior works have been dropped before completion, and that was one of them.
^ what dragon said. Though, what was posted of it is still available on my site: http://acearriande.com/category/core/
I still consider it a story that I want to come back to eventually, probably to write as an entirely self-contained two-volume series rather than try to drag it out over a bunch of volumes, but that's not going to happen anytime soon. But yeah, unfortunately, I just didn't consider CORE to be up to my standards like many of the others I started, so it got dropped.
Are you planning to resume updates for The Dungeon Hound soon, or nah? Cause the former version was my fav novel and this one is still pretty damn great so I wanna see more.
TQH/TDH is a story in a very complicated situation in regard to how I want to approach it. Both versions of it are effectively dropped, and I've tried relaunching it (without posting it) about 5 more times since then, but I just can't get settled on a version of the story that I'm 100% happy with. I still genuinely want to write it, but I want to be absolutely sure I've got my vision for it correct before I ever make future attempts at the series public again.
I don't think I've asked this before, but do you prefer first or third person narration?
First person unless there are multiple MCs where third person makes it clearer who is doing/thinking what
First person if it for enhance character personality.
Third person for describing surrounding and situation.
In my opinion. You could write both in one too.
It will come down to how well it is written anyway. Sometimes short is better, sometimes long is better.
Just make the flow going.
what class do you want to see more protagonists in LitRPGs have
@FG666 Azarint healer is healer martial arts stuff and there isa new one called healing dungeon which is kind of healing stuff too
any support (healing, crafter, merchant) that doesn't devolve into "all i know is combat" (i think there are some for merchant, but none for the other 2, i would love some good crafting descriptions, or "well i have done everything i can so im just going to hide over there, please dont die, or desperately trying to avoid being attacked while keeping your team up)
