Maybe some already read it on my facebook page but here the whole story:
After I had great plans of a mass release in early January for April, all plans were ruined by my bad luck!
At first Cave Scanlations website was gone because of technical issues and Estoriel fell into a deep depression, trying to fix it somehow but failed (miserably). This ate a lot of time and in the end he decided to close down the group for now. It naturally also influenced the speed for him to translate the mass release but that was only the start of the great calamity…
Afterwards this happened *copy paste from my fb account*:
Psst…I know it was a bit silent over here but the Cave Scanlation team and I’m planning something nice behind the scenes~🤐
Oh and there will also be another little special chapter so stay tuned!
P.s.: Blame the delay on Estoriel who messed up and “uploaded” the chapters for proofreading wrongly…thus never appearing in the eyes of the proofer~😡 He just noticed it today and instantly confessed to me, don’t worry he already had to atone for his sin! 👹
*puts away Fienjas treasured legendary holy weapon which is drenched in a certain someones fresh blood and hides the corpse of the demon lord*
The first part of course wa about y secret plans about the mass release but the second part… was the second one-hit kill of my bad luck! Later it turned out something was wrong with Estoriels computer but don’t ask me any specifics cuz I’m not a technician.
Onto the final strike of my bad luck…
…Namoraxs laptop broke… and without our proofreader I didn’t want to release!! After all if the upload would have many mistakes it does destroys the reading low and I didn’t want you all to face this. So I patiently waited…and waited… and then I was contacted by one of you over facebook!o-o~
Seeing that you guys probably soon grab the pitchforks to hunt me to get the new chapter, I feared for my life… okay joke aside. I didn’t want you guys to wait any longer. As a reader myself I know how har it is to wait so in the end I decided to upload the first part of chapter 11 in an unproofed state for now. If you prefer to wait for the proofed version, you’ll have to wait some longer but Namorax did proofread this part a bit, so I think it shouldn’t be too riddled with mistakes at least. (Namorax managed to proofread a bit yesterday despite his broken laptop, so huge thanks to him!!)
The next part will be uploaded somewhere next week, with luck maybe by then even the whole chapter is proofread.
I hope my bad luck really ends now…D: (And of course Namorax and Estoriels as well!!)
So for everyone who doesn’t want to wat any longer, here’s the next chapters part!
P.s.: I also noticed a few links are corrupted, I’ll fix them next week bit by bit but the Hidden GM main pages links are working so if you want to read previous chapters you can find them here. <–so much about the end of my bad luck…TT__TT
I hope you all enjoy Christmas and can celebrate peacefully.
As a little present, heres’s part 1 of chapter 10 of Hidden GMs Destiny.

It’s a long time ago that we had a poll so here’s a new one. As well as the previously announced good friend of lil’ poll, lil’ raffle!
Todays poll is related to which faction you belong to: Team coffee (Kaje), team cocoa (Fienja) or the third team which loves to drink both (Maeda??)~
Information about the raffle
Christmas is coming and I thought it’s the best opportunity to start the raffle I planned since some time ago. Out of everyone who participates I’ll pick out three winners. There won’t be a first or second place winner with different prizes, instead I’ll decided to make it more fair and give everyone the same prize!
As some people know a friend and I have shared GW2 blog -just for fun- where we post something from time to time (when time allows it, right now I’m super busy with moving so I couldn’t post anything…>-<). So I thought… why not connect it to the raffle a bit?
Why did I mention this? Well the price this time is the
Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns soundtrack.
Even if you’re not a guild wars 2 player, the soundtrack is really beautiful! So if you like music, I’m sure you’ll enjoy listing to it. Also if more than 50 people participate in the raffle, I’ll add another special price to it which will be raffled out between everyone who didn’t managed to be one of the lucky winners.
How do you participate in the raffle?
There are two ways:
- Give the raffle post on facebook a like.
- Make a comment on this raffle post on wordpress. (Please include your e-mail adress so I can contact you later and send the price over.)
I’ll choose the lucky winners on 24th December, right before Christmas~ If you have friends who love to play guild wars 2 feel free to tell them about this raffle, so they also have a chance to receive an additional christmas present! ; )
Here’s the second Gods Ordeal story.
If you’re new to this short story collection, you can find some more stories here.
Next up some news about me moving to a different (far away) city:
Because of the large distance I’m still not done moving everything out of my old flat and into the new one and I can only slowly work on it on the weekends because I’ve a full time job. Despite that I have some good news: The whole process is done latest at the end of December and then the updates will be more regular again!
Now to a topic I already mentioned on my facebook page (if you already saw it there, just skip this part there isn’t anything new):
Many probably already noticed this but aho-updates.com didn’t update since a long time ago.
And by now I highly doubt that the site owner will fix it so the only way to receive notifications of updates for Hidden GMs Destiny and Gods Ordeal is via email, my facebook page, subscribing to my wordpress page when you’re registered over wordpress or via https://www.wlnupdates.com/ … :(
This is the only website left which accepts updates of translated non-asian novels aside from aho-updates as far as I know.
Most of you were updated via aho-updates for HGD and GO in the past (I know this from the website statistics) so I can imagine how many of you are inconvenienced because of this. *sigh*
I used this website as well, especially for the many non-asian novels which I like to read. So the day when aho-updates stopped operating was a real loss in my eyes for all non-asian authors listed there… X:
If you know any other website similar to wlnupdates or aho-updates which accept non-asian novels please let me know.
-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.
Oh right and before I forget the warning sign: xD <–there you go, hope you still remember about it~
