A note from rykov00

Hey all, as noted previously, July is going to be a bit of a mess for us. I hope that you'll bear with us as we get things sorted and and when we resume in August we'll be at our two times a week or faster rate of posting. For now, we'll be going down to a single posting per week. You may have noticed that the chapters have been getting longer in the tooth, and this is giving some space to let the characters interact a bit more. Hopefully we'll be able to finish up this first arc at that pace.

Mondays or Tuesdays we'll post a weekly chapter for the next month. Teaser for what's coming is below. If you would like to see more of a particular character, or type of action, please make a comment now. We'll be doing a lot of writing the next bit and having an idea of what people are really enjoying would be helpful as we sprint through this month.

Liz was getting in position on the stairs as the gross feel of mana surging through her body started to build up again. Their ambush was taking some time to prepare and without the constant use of her abilities the pressure was becoming unbearable. As she prepared a powershot just to dissipate the accumulating energy a sudden cool wave flowed through her. She glanced over to the new notifications that just appeared, but something odd happened as the last message was coming through. Almost as quickly as the letters appeared they began to fade and ended in a truly bizarre message.

It's kind of hard to say what I'd like to see more of, since the story is starting out, but if I had to pick a general direction I'd say like the story Life in the North. Less on the "look at the twenty different things I can craft/transform with the system" that some rpgocalypses do, like Upheaval and World Seed. Those can be enjoyable, but it's never going to make me as interested or anticipatory of a story as one with a purpose, even if that purpose is simply "get stronger/build up base of operations." Things I would like are a cast of characters, as I've had to go back a few times to see who someone is, a dungeon with -puzzles- in additon to monsters, because those are interesting, can showcase how different characters think and approach problems, and I think I've read stories with them twice even though they're more interesting than continuous hack & slash. Also at some point, maybe neutral/friendly nonhuman sapient creatures, it'd be nice if everything wasn't trying to kill them. Transformed unicorn excluded.

    Thank you so much for the feedback. That's good to hear. We have a sort of a base builder possibility coming up, and I was curious if people would be into seeing more of that side. I'm leaning more towards just getting more and more focsued on the characters and their interactions, and maybe see if I can go back and make some more interesting conversations earlier so there is more interest there.
