Archfiend Update

Hey everyone, XTB here. 

This post has been coming for a long time. Unfortunately, this message isn’t what I originally wished it to be, but more like an address of the current situation.

If you’re a long-time reader of Archfiend, then you know a couple months back I had a major emergency that I said would probably affect a significant amount of how things would be in the future. I recall saying a week or two after the event that “things would hopefully resolve itself and chapters would resume quickly”. I will probably look back at this statement as one of the things I was most wrong about in my life.

If you read Archfiend, you know how much I love my poems and idioms. There is one particular idiom that speaks to me. “A triumphant return to office after hermitage in the mountains”. For some perspective, I moved from one cave on the mountain to another cave even higher up.

But anyways, the main point of this post is just to let readers know about update rate and the long-awaited revamp of chapters. Because of various factors, life, etc, expect 5-7 chapters per week. Chapter revamp has actually been done for a while, but I’ve had no time to really sit down and upload, and it is surprisingly time consuming. Archfiend initially suffered some quality issues, but I am pleased with how I’ve spruced things up. The edit was originally up to chapter 150~, but I ended up practically just doing everything. And while I’m sure there are still aspects that can always be improved, I like where things are. In any case, no VIP for now. Maybe in a week or two. Knowing me, don’t count on that time estimate, though.

So that’s pretty much everything. If you’re looking to read something new, check out Archfiend. As of now there are over 300 chapters out. It’s a modern day cultivation novel that takes place in our world. There’s a very big focus on how such a society would interact with our own. If you’re a fan of Chinese myth/always wanted to learn more about Chinese history/culture, I definitely recommend it. 

Also, big thank you to those who’ve been around since the start and commented. One of the few things I really looked forward to in these past months! Feels like it’s been a long time, but still better late than never, right?

Thanks and happy reading!


TL;DR: Archfiend update rate is 5-7 chapters per week. Pretty much all chapters revamped. No VIP for now, MAYBE in a week or two.
