Such a sad ending to a Kerb who tried. another good chapter. 

 

Remember too though he was also sorta responsible for the extinction of an entire group of people. Well meaning but also a bit.... killy.

PS: How long should Revelations be?

If it keeps up like this about 3 more years:/ Must write harder.

I feel spoiled though, two chapters in about as many days? This is.... Not normal! usually its a good month. or more. I'm not complaining though about the increased rate.

Things are moving better. :D It won’t quite be such a quick turnaround on the next, but I’m aiming for two weeks.

And here he’s become one of my most interesting characters. ^_^ Is he a good guy or a bad guy after all? Time will tell... or will it?

I’m hoping it won’t be nearly that bad. :P I need to see it finished, or it’ll drive me batty. Er. I was a bit shocked when I realized I’m already a year into it. :confused:

Wait, just trying to get this straight. This was what I got from the chapter

1. Kommissar was a good-guy!?!!?! (Or at least one of those neutral grey characters with good purpose but wrong actions)

2. Edgar is the Krakensbane!? I thought Valentina held that awesome title?

3. The Kraken was a prison warden for hell!?!!?!? And now Hell is about to break lose?

So, those points aside, for the most important point of all.

@CatastrophicFailure May be able to correct anything or add more but this is what I know/understand

WELLLLLL depending on how you look at it, he did commit genocide (See Whispers) however, he was aware and I guess possibly attempting to help get rid of the Kraken.

Nope, he always held that title. Val had the title of Shadowscourge. Or pick any of the following (Quoted from Whispers)

Quote

I am the Daughter of the Morning, the Firstborn of the Light. I am the Sword of the Broken. I am the Shield of the Bowed. I am Advocate, I am Councilor. I am Friend. I am the Voice of Justice, the Herald of Truth. Gadfly to the Wicked, Thorn to the Corrupt. I am the Beacon of the Last Day. I am the Final Cry. I am Shin-Breaker, Fork-Kicker, Eye-Spitter! I am the Scion of Vladimir. I am the Prodigy of Elena. I am Marath'inde Damane, the One Who May Not Be Leashed. I am Tenbish, I am the Shadowscourge

*mouth opening and closing in mild defeat*

Maybe? The way its described is that Edgas defeated the guard to something worse. I personally got that we have yet to see the full force of the kraken, and this might have just been some weaker manifestation, but I'm not the author, I just stick stuff in PDFs.

Almost. ®️

Next chapter has been chugging along at a good pace, I’m hoping for this weekend. 

Tho I think I said that a couple weeks ago... :unsure:

And of course, it’s huge.

@qzgy seems to have chimed in first. :cool: I probably shouldn’t say too much... :ph34r:

Questions will soon be answered. Not nescessarily these, but some.  And a character who’s been instrumental to the plot for a long time but not yet actually seen. :o

Nope thats actually fairly on time to your "I'm hoping for two weeks"

Huge is good. I can read a bunch. then inevitably finish it all in probably not more than 15 minutes and wait till the next update

I was wondering what is the correct order to read those books (after they're all finished). Is it Shadows, Whispers and Revelations or Whispers, Revelations and Shadows?

I'm going with Tenbish the Shin-Breaker personally. Has a nice ring to it.

Then you definitely need to add it to the Big List of flicks you need too see the day you graduate to Padawan. ‘Tis a modern classic that influenced films like The Matrix and Inception, it’s got Mars, mutants, mind-bending... and Sharon Stone... <_<

And perhaps... just like one or two words you’ve never heard before... :rolleyes:

 

in writngs news, I have just crossed the 7kiloword mark, and before it’s over may even reach...

<dun dun duuuuuun>

The @Ten Key Threshhold. :o

The 10k @Ten Key Threshold has been breached. :blink: I'm working on the final scene now and hoping to have it done tonight, so hopefully post tomorrow after my own edit pass.

It should be... something... :ph34r:

This should have it's own warning siren I think: "WARNING! WARNING! 10K Threshold reached. Probability of catastrophic verbal verisimilitude collapse at 78% and rising!"
