Hidden GMs Destiny chapter 8 part 1

First off the bad news: There is no new poll…D: We have to endure until chapter 9, because of new characters appearing! *loves polls too much*

Good news: Cave Scanlations found a new proofer, Namarox! He helped out a lot on this chapter and thanks to him the next release will also be within a week~ Chapter 9 is also ready for proofreading.


 

Aside from this, I…somehow got addicted to Guild Wars 2~

So here a question: What will happen if you put Selkin into the world of Guild Wars 2, her noticing the existence of the Charr race (big cats!) and the fact that a Necromancer class exists?

Yes, of course I would create a white tiger Necromancer-Charr and name it Keradis!lol

The clothes of course all in white~ I tried getting as close as to my imagination of Keradis as possible…but I had to pretty soon discover the true endcontent of the game, or shall I rather say the true endboss? Worse than all the dragons together…

Light armour on the body of a Charr!! Clothing in general on a Charrs body…is a…problem…really…

Leather armour and heavy armour…you can still find something nice (in my opinion) but light armour…(Θ︹Θ)ს

Moreover I still am missing many skins but honestly… Making a Charr look good in light armour is a harder task than the actual endcontent!!xD It took a long time to end up with an acceptable result.

 

I really love playing with “Keradis” right now and somehow ended up being a bit addicted to PVP. As strange as it sounds: I usually belong to the people not liking PVP. It was like this for all games I played till now… but somehow I really enjoy it in Guild Wars 2! So if you play GW2 and spot a white tiger Charr with white-blue clothes (or if I’m in the mood I also put on the noble count outfit; so he can show off his gentlemanly-side and kill you with style *cough* xD) with that name and his minions running around. It’s probably me!


So why do I bring this up?xD

My friend Cadyncea and I started a little blog (just two days ago) about our Guild Wars 2 characters and adventures, we’re currently working on a little video too~

If you’re interested, please take a look, we would be really happy~

(Atm we only have german posts on it…but if you leave a comment requesting the video being translated into english, you can help me force pursuade my friend to work on it and share it with everyone xP *she’s the one adding the text, I honestly never edited videos before… I’ll learn it soon though*).

 

It would also be nice to play GW2 together with you guys! So if you want to add me, you can always leave a comment with your IGN so I can get into contact with you. (Note: All comments are being moderated by me before they appear on the website. I do this to avoid the posts being flooded with spam. If you don’t want your IGN appearing on the blog just leave a few words and I make sure it won’t show up! x3)

Oh and I’m currently looking for a nice guild to join as well…o-o~ If you know a nice one where it’s also possible to be MIA for a longer time due to work, let me know pls~

P.s.: In case you already saw the guild page for Hidden GMs Destiny: I also created (just for fun) the character “Die Omi” (she’s not a mage like in HGD, but a thief instead, because… there are better clothes fitting to her age~). *this character will appear in the 9th chapter of Hidden GMs Destiny for the first time* Cadyncea even went so far as to create her a husband (Grandfather Avo), also a thief.

Hidden GMs Destiny chapter 7 part 2

-You can skip this part if you want (just letting off some steam ^^”) –

I’m finally back!! Huge thanks to Estoriel for writing the previous update post for me. As you could read there, I had to change the internet provider and was cut off from the internet for a very long time (for months to be more precise)…x.x

It drove me insane and I don’t know how many tables I flipped in my mind~ I even tried to write a post via my mobile phones (really really really bad) internet connection and the wordpress app, but it didn’t work because the connection was unstable and super slow. I think even a snail is faster…

While I couldn’t even write an update post, I used my mobile phone (or more like tried to…) to read some more webnovels but even that plan more or less failed thanks to the super slow mobile phone internet connection (before I always used my home wlan connection so I was spoiled by it’s speed~). Even I never expected that…

…even text only websites (aka no pictures, no fancy website design, no chats displayed etc. really only a simple background with text over it…) would need to load for 3-5 minutes and then only show a bit of the text (aka text was suddenly cut off). Then the whole page had to be reloaded (my first thought: welcome to a different kind of a “F5 mobile phone version army”) for…. at least 10 times!!!TT_TT”

It was hell… really. Especially if you happily start reading just to notice the text being cut off suddenly, reload, wait and try finding where you have left off and then notice the text being again cut off just to repeat the whole process over and over again…

I also have the habit to like posts on wordpress websites… (some people may have noticed me in the past already on some novel websites *cough*)

…but even this was a journey to hell and back! Of course the like buttons were also not loading for most of the time…so I regretfully could only like a few posts here and there.

Well, the only good point of this internet provider change was being able to read a few books (and safe lots of money cuz the old one changed to ridiculously high prices!) I bought long ago and couldn’t read yet. But I sure realized how much I actually read online…^^” (<–first world problem….)

 

– *cough* rambling ends here –

 

Long story short:

I’m back and because of the long wait I post a bit more of the seventh chapter. Originally I wanted to release the chapter in two parts but I don’t want to let you guys wait any longer and release a bit now (third part hopefully will follow soon~). The next chapter is also being worked on right now.

Here’s the link to Hidden GMs Destiny Chapter 7 Part 2.

Oh right and before I forget the warning sign: xD <–there you go, hope you still remember about it~

Lil’ Update

Heyho! Today it’s not Selkin (author) writing this update post but Estoriel the admin of Cave Scanlations who’s in charge of translating.

So why am I writing today?

That’s because Selkin is (still) flipping some tables

(┛✧Д✧))┛彡┻━┻

and raging at home

(ʘ言ʘ╬)

because she was more or less forced to change her internet provider and now couldn’t access the internet for weeks.

They suddenly increased the prices by a lot and their rivals are much cheaper so it was inevitable. And the whole process of changing ones provider is really slow where she lives. I myself fell victim to this too and had no intenet for over two months, just so you know how long this all takes… Else I would have updated you guys much sooner! She should be back around this week though.

As soon as Selkin returns, she’ll post Part 2 of chapter 7. Chapter 8 is already translated but still needs proofreading.

Luckily (or not?) there were no donations so there’s at least not a sponsored chapter queue (that could be really frightening after 2 months for other novel websites!!).

 

Guess while I’m already here and have the chance…. I go and shamelessly try to recruit some proofreaders for Hidden GMs Destiny as well as Gods Ordeal~

 

If you’re interested, please send an e-mail to cavescanlation@gmail.com! The only requirements are having high proficiency in english, being able to use google doc files and having enough time to proofread.

(Just as a reminder: Selkins chapters are far longer than many other webnovel chapters, sometimes they can surpass easily 25 pages. Selkin and I do try breaking them up like the Toriel chapter in this case but you really have to be able to invest time for prooreading if you want to apply.)

 

P.s.: I was forced by Selkin to add the emoticons!

Hidden GMs Destiny chapter 7 part 1

After noticing that some readers received some critical damage to their stomaches and the desire to receive a warning (to decrease said damage?), I decided to add a little warning on the release posts!

I’ll add an “xD” at the end of the release posts if I think that a certain chapter or part could be dangerous for your health~ That being said, I fear I have to mark this chapter as “xD” worthy but that mainly would be part 2, I think?


 

Furthermore I created a new page for “Gods Ordeal” on the novel page (additionally to the links on the oneshot page), to make it easier to find for new readers.

Also after the poll and some more discussions with CS we’ll start doing sponsored chapters/parts now (read last post for more information here). Hopefully this will encourage a few more people to donate a bit a make it possible for the CS staff to focus more of their time on the novels.


xD  <– I warned you, see~?

Chapter 7 Part 1

Hidden GMs Destiny chapter 6 part 4+Donations

I release this part one day earlier than planned because I have a very important appointment tomorrow. As usual I’ll combine the chapter within a weeks time (and also apply some minor text edits).


 

Because donations are a bit rare and I would really love to pay the proofreaders, translator and artist a bit more for their good work and dedication, especially while knowing how much of their already sparse free time they sacrifice. This would also increase the release speed (because they have to work less part time and can invest that time fully on the releases).

With that in mind, I was thinking about maybe introducing a sponsored chapter/part system, additionally to the benefits which are already written on the donation page of course.
