Wuxiaworld Welcomes Aran and Imperial God Emperor!

Hi all, this is something that both many of you as well as I have been looking forward to for quite some time now. An old novel that was gone for a period of time due to various reasons is back, and fully licensed… IMPERIAL GOD EMPEROR (IGE)! IGE is a Zongheng novel that we have fully licensed, and we’ve brought back its original translator, ‘Aran’, as well. Not just that: some of the earlier chapters were rough, so we spent weeks working with Aran to edit and overhaul those earlier chapters to bring them up to Wuxiaworld standard… all 200+ of them! I’ll let Aran introduce himself to y’all, but for now please join me in a warm Wuxiaworld welcome to Aran and IGE!

Mobile Redirects Fixed?

Hey guys, just checking – a week or two ago, we put in a stealth-fix that theoretically should have fixed redirect issues on mobile. I’m not going to get too much into the tech, but long story short is the API we were using for adserving was finally updated to be compatible with something called SafeFrame which allows us to use iframes on our ads.  Theoretically, iframe should have completely killed the redirects issue.  Next will be the laggy ads…

Click here to cast your vote and let us know how things are looking. Note that this is specifically for the past week.  Note that this fix is only valid on mobile phones, not iPad for now!  Also feel free to leave a message here!

Wuxiaworld Welcomes Tina and Daman!

Hey guys, I’d like for you all to join me in a warm welcome to original authors Tina and Daman! Tina has brought her own originals Blue Phoenix and Overthrowing Fate, while Daman has brought The Divine Elements. Some of you may have read their novels before, and they’ve self-published some of their stories on Amazon.

In 2017-2018, we’re actually signing some Chinese authors as well, who will be producing Wuxiaworld-owned content and will be posting them both on Chinese websites as well as English translated versions on WW. As a result, the originals section will slowly and steadily grow. I’m very happy to be able to inaugurate Tina, deathblade, and Daman as the official Founding Fathers of the WW originals section. Please join me in a warm Wuxiaworld welcome for Tina and Daman in particular!

PSA: Wuxiaworld Under DDOS

Hey guys, just letting you know that Wuxiaworld is currently under a large scale UDP DDOS attack. Linode has already nullrouted some of our IP’s, as the attack is so large that it was impacting their service and their other customers. As a result, the site may be slow and some services like the forum will be temporarily offline. We will keep you updated as things progress, and I will refrain from speculating on who is behind it.

EDIT: DDOS still ongoing, and still large enough that Linode’s other servers/nodes are impacted when our IP’s are not nullrouted. A DDOS of this size and magnitude… someone certainly has a large botnet or deep pockets.

EDIT2: DDOS over! Things should be back to normal. Destickying after a few hours if everything stays normal!

alyschu is BACK!!

Did ya’ll miss me?

I was actually back 2 days ago but cleaning, unpacking, delivering presents, checking mail, etc and being sore from all that delayed me a bit. I’ll try to release most if not all ATG, SR, and MEN’s owed chapters before the end of the month but I can’t make any promises. I’ll be releasing a bunch of chapters today and then start counting how much we still owe for each series before I go to bed. ATG+SR will take priority because they have early access patreon stuff I have to post as well.

ps. China was fun although not having stable internet wasn’t. I battled typhoons, floods, camels, and emus!

This is the most memorable event I took a picture of, featuring eldest auntchu: Continue reading “alyschu is BACK!!”

Nie Yinniang – Matriarch of Wuxia

Hey, Guan Zhong (RWX’s assistant) here. Check out my translation of “Nie Yinniang”, hosted by our good friends at volare novels! “Nie Yinniang” is a short story written during the Tang dynasty (618-907 CE) and is one of the first Chinese stories to feature some of the elements so common in wuxia, xianxia, and xuanhuan literature today.

ISSTH Grand Finale is almost here!

Greetings Fellow Daoists!

We are only about one hour away from the ISSTH finale. If you haven’t already, please familiarize yourself with the rules of the contest if you wish to participate, and make sure that the e-mail associated with your account is up to date. That is how I will contact the winners to get shipping information!

I will be releasing a new chapter every hour on the hour, exactly, starting at 9:00 a.m. EST! Try to save some wear and tear on the server by starting your F5 battles at the appropriate time. I WILL NOT release any chapters early, and in the case that one will come late, I’ll mention something on twitter. The release post will come a few minutes after the chapter is up, as I like to double check that all the links work before going live with the announcement post. For those of you on twitter, make sure to use #ISSTH on all your posts about the finale.

I’ve taken a bit of time to create a “soundtrack” for the final chapters. At the top of each chapter you will find a link that will open up a song on Youtube (no ads, don’t worry). I picked each song to match the chapter, so I hope it lends to the reading experience and makes things a bit more exciting.

Alright, I’m going to grab some dinner. I’ll be back in exactly one hour with chapter 1600!
