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
and raging at home
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 email@example.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!
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.
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).
After some longer time with no releases, here’s chapter 6 part 2. Part 3 will also be released within the next few days. Because of chapter 6 being so long I’ll part it into a total of 4 parts.
Everyone who also follow me on facebook and/or tumbrl probably already saw it but Atk-49 has some internet problems so the proofreading slowed down (Estoriel already contacted another proofreader to help out).
On that note: Estoriel is looking for one or two more proofreaders for Hidden GMs Destiny to speed up the releases until ATK-49 is fully back. If you’re interested please visit Cave Scanlations recruitment page. Alternatively fill out the form at the bottom (I do this for the first time so I hope it works!>-<“). And yes, if you read the text on the donation page, the donation money is shared with the proofreaders too~
He’s also still looking for helpers for the Hidden GM wiki, if you’re interested send him an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org (or fill out the form at the bottom).
Maybe a few readers already noticed it, but I secretly uploaded the mini guild wiki around a week ago as well, after more than 80% voted for adding it to the website. You can find it under the Hidden GMs main page or just click this link here. I also sneaked another poll on the wiki page (the one below)~
Now onto the old poll results where you could vote for the favourite character of Kerunas guild:
Sion & Emeralda (20%)
Keruna sure is popular, but we see how long that lasts~ After all more members will get introduced in the near future.
First of, I have some good news and “not so good news” (I won’t call them bad yet!), as well as a poll regarding a “mini”-wiki about the guilds of Hidden GMs Destiny, more information further down.
Estoriel translated a lot! (<–Good news for you and an overkill for proofreader-san. *cough*) Now to the “not so good” ones… I had another surgery, despite my huge hate for surgeries (it was necessary else I wouldn’t be able to walk so I was forced to *sigh*). So right now I’m recuperating (again…>-<“). So I won’t be uploading much for around a week, two at most. On the bright side, ATK-49 (the Cave Scanlation proofreader) has exams and is unavailable for now but he’ll return around the 25th Sep. (so next weekend) and intends to make up for the wait! So there could be more and faster updates coming (no promises here though cuz if something goes wrong I maybe have to get yet another surgery…*spits blood*) because Estoriel went berserk on translating. On that note there are still 17 pages to be released of the next chapter alone (and the chapter after it is also ready), so a lot to read~ (<–ATK-49 doesn’t know about his “luck” yet *cough*)
Now onto the poll!
Because the lich fight is drawing closer and closer and a few different guilds as well as their members will appear… Do you want a brief overview of the different guild names, their members, classes and levels in advance? (Won’t reveal everything though! Nor will it include all members who appear in the future.) I’ll leave the poll open until the next release and if the majority votes “yes”, I’ll upload the “mini-guildwiki” together with the next release.
Some news about your favourite chicken being told by Fienja, enjoy~ Because so many of you (-mainly the nice people filling out the survey~ Huge thanks for your feedback! Once the first arc ends I’ll make an extra post about the results-) wanted to know what happened to the chicken, I thought I release this chapter a bit earlier (the chicken won’t reappear any time soon though). One of the extra chapters for the ebook will include a chapter with the chicken POV! <–totally not advertising
Little note at the end: All future chapters from the superiors POVs will be labelled “B-Side” (b for boss…couldn’t use S cuz of Sion~) in the title.
