New Chapter Release! Book 8, Chapter 43

Eh heh heh heh.  Um.  Yeah.  Sorry about translating 43 and 44 bass-ackwards, guys T.T .  Anyhow, all is well in the world now…right?!  Here is Book 8, Chapter 43 – The Gathering in Basil.  Hopefully it makes Chapter 44 make a bit more sense now.  Enjoy the read, gang!  If you do, please remember to thank our generous sponsors, JR of Illinois, MP of Slovakia, and Wackytom.  Big round of applause to all of them!

Okay, one more chapter to go, and I’ll have completed TheLeecher’s first challenge xD.  Fighting, fighting, fighting!!!!!

      1. I read the first challenge and it said 5 chapters in 27 hours.

        Wouldn’t that mean that there are two more for you to do not one more?

        Or am I missing something?

        1. Chapters 41, 42, 43, 44, 45 were all posted within the past 27 hours. Regardless though, don’t worry about it. I’ll explain in my post.

    1. Thanks for joining our little community, crownedcrow! There’s already been 4 chapters within the past 27 hours 😀

  1. I don’t think that’s what leecher meant when he said release 5 chapters within 24 hours. The goal should be you surpassing limits right? But if you count the midnight previous release on every weekend you have always been releasing 5 chapters within 24 hours.

    It should be a day when you say “Here is a your 5th and FINAL chapter today!”

    Also personally I was kinda against this kind of gambling, something seems off about it. :/ It just doesn’t really seem like anything fun for the community. If you win you reap major benefits, if leecher loses he doesn’t really lose anything. But also there is that feeling of something being taken away from rest of the community. So it’s a game where everyone looses except the translator.

    Last note is, I’m perfectly happy with slower releases.

    1. diffy2, thanks for sharing your concerns! I would defer to TheLeecher, but per his comments here, I don’t think he feels that way. There is a reason he said 27 hours, not 24 hours.

      I would also like to just note that I actually don’t always release 4 chapters every Saturday/Sunday, because I like to occasionally get out as well. It’s not a ‘given’, and it does have costs for me. This Saturday, for example, I was invited out by friends, and I went out then came back home after just a short period of time with them because I had a chapter I needed to finish thanks to the challenge. If it wasn’t for that, I probably would’ve spent the entire night out. Similarly, today, I’m honestly really tired (I even got 43/44 mixed up!), and would like to call it a day and go to bed early, but again, because of the challenge, I’m staying focused; if I didn’t get these five out, I would have to add 60 to the pool, which is a benefit to the community, right? Am I ‘losing’? I don’t know if I would use that word, but it does ‘cost’ me, yes. Are you losing if I win? Well, this is from TheLeecher’s pool, and no one else’s, and it is his money to decide what to do with; this was his challenge to me, not vice versa after all.

      Anyhow, I do appreciate you sharing your concerns though, since for every voiced concern, there’s always four or five that are unvoiced. I’m not sure if you were a donor or not (some donors use different emails), but as always, if you did donate and now feel unhappy about it, please just privately contact me and I’ll be happy to refund it. Cheers, and thanks for your ongoing support 🙂

    2. Why do people bother complaining about how other people spend their money? In this case, it’s TheLeecher’s donations funding the games, not yours.

      You’re acting ungrateful to both him and Ren. Whereas he wants to provide Ren a chance to speed through the never-ending queue and relax, you just want to selfishly squeeze Ren.

      You can convey your opinion, but no need to be a Scrooge about it.

      1. Now, now, let’s not get testy with each other, Neige! I appreciate your protectiveness towards me, but I also appreciate diffy2 letting me know how he feels. As I said earlier, what one person says out loud, at least five other people are thinking, so I’m happy I had a chance to address it 🙂

        Anyhow, I should have the next chapter up in around 90 or so!

      2. I knew that people would take what I said like that, I also realized well before I posted that it is his and ren’s money and they can do what they want with it. Since they are called “donations”. I also totally realize it’s Ren’s choice to release a chapter once a donation reaches $80, and no one is in fact paying him for a job. But I meant my post to be thinking in everyone’s shoes, and usually it’s the devil advocate’s shoes. Nothing to do with selfishness, and as I said slower releases is fine, so ren can go out and enjoy his life as he wishes, probably should go out a bit more too since this is taking a toll on him and it’s obvious and I don’t mean the mistake in chapters. But the tone of his posts have changed since back in spcnet. Though not everyone can read the tone of a person’s posts.

        And yes it took courage for me to speak my mind about this, other people have the same thought so that’s why I posted it. There is more I’d like to say but I’d just get flamed for even more, and it will kinda just be rehashing what I already said. At the worst that could happen is that this incites a flame war, and Ren decides it’s too much drama and goes back to his 1 chapter a week and decides it’s bad to accept donations.

        It’s a slippery slope, but I could totally see it happening, no one wants to see it happen either but the posts which align with my thought are slowly increasing. Also, to warn the “defenders” if the worst does come to pass it wont only be the naysayers at fault but also the people who argue with them. If only good or evil rules the world there would be no wars, it requires both good and evil to exist to start a war.

        I’m trying to keep everyone happy, not start arguments here.

        1. Hi diffy2, thank you for speaking your mind (honestly)! FYI, if you have anything you would like to say to me in general but don’t feel comfortable about saying here, please do not hesitate to email me at rwxwuxiaworld(at), or send me a PM at SPCNET, where I still go every day of course :). I do try very hard to keep the atmosphere here happy, and also try to welcome every new user, so I’m not sure what you mean by my tone has changed, but again, I would sincerely be more than happy to discuss that with you in a more private atmosphere. Anyhow, thanks again for your concern and for expressing dissent, which I do understand is not always the easiest thing to do; as I said twice already, I’m fully aware that what one says, several people are thinking, so thank you for speaking your opinions.



        2. I have no interest in starting an argument either. I’m just calling it how I see it. You can buffer your posts with a lot of fluff but your real purpose is clear.

          All I have to say to readers is to be thankful for what you get. As Ren says, enjoy the ride (rather than complain).

  2. I think Ren meant 1 more chapter before 12:37 am Feb 2 will make it 5 in 27 hours

    since Chapter 41 was released at 12:37 am today

    1. That is correct, rembram! Thanks for explaining on my behalf, and also thanks for registering and joining our little community!

  3. many tnx Ren for your hardwork and donors to continue suport Ren.
    i think all will benefit for this its all win win for me theres no fun without games. im just leecher that following ang sneaking for something fun.

  4. on a side note… that was the worst play ever for the last 20 sec of the game. Someone on the seahawks needs to be fired for calling that last play. grrr……. sorry rant.
