Translator Announcements

Hi everyone, 

I'll be going on holiday to Tokyo from the 16th until the 1st of Dec. 

Chapters will still be posted at the usual weekly rate, and I'll even be translating during my trip. 

The only difference is that the posting times might go off depending on when I have the time to post, or if I'm too tired and replace them on the next day instead.

Besides that, I received a few requests from existing sponsors that are current sponsors of higher tiers or past sponsors to the Oracle Mountain tier and had to take a break for certain reasons. 

So, I've decided to re-open the Oracle Mountain tier as a special unlock from now until the end of the month. 

Sponsors on higher tiers that wish to be moved down earlier before the date of their renewal can send me a message on discord or an email at [email protected] with your Wuxiaworld username and email, whereas, sponsors on lower tiers will just have to upgrade as usual.

Thanks and enjoy!

P.S. I'm thinking about doing a Black Friday/Christmas discount sale, but I can't confirm...

Hey guys, 

It turned out to be a lot more troublesome than I expected to have a seal customized. Anyways, after three weeks and numerous adjustments, I finally received the seal I'm happy with today. Check out the pictures. Once again, thank you all for supporting LOAR. If you like this kind of items, I'll try to do more giveaways.

I'll have it shipped out to our lucky winner as soon as possible.

Hello my dearest lemonade afficionados!

As mentioned in the last few chapters, I will be going on vacation until the 18th. I'm still packing (cry) so I don't think I will get to the chapter tonight.

I am hoping to get some translating in every so often during my trip and will post if I am able to do so.

If not, I will make it up after I get back to still aim to meet the 28 chapters for the month.

Hope to post soon but if not, may the peace of the night always be with you.

Theo: Welp, title. If you were waiting to binge, now would be a good time. There's also some stuff we're planning behind the scenes, so we should have some really fun stuff in the coming months as this translation approaches a year old. We'll make an announcement then, so keep your eye out. Anything you folks want to see outside of more chapters?

Hi everyone, it's Legion here!

I appeared for an interview in episode 16 of Immortal Index Podcast yesterday. I'll leave a link below for anyone who's interested in checking it out. I was stammering quite a bit and forgot a lot of stuff I wanted to say in my nervousness. What I really wanted to say is a sincere thank you to all readers and sponsors of Monarch of Evernight--you guys are the best. 

And NO!!! that's not how I sound in real life :P I'm not that squeaky teenager.

Hello cherished readers,

I wanted to share a heartfelt thank you for everyone who popped in during the AMA. I think we hung out for a good couple of hours, and it was a lot of fun to shoot the breeze. I hope you got to learn a little bit more about me and the story we enjoy. I know I got to learn a lot more about you.

Congratulations are in order for our winners of the two $25 Amazon gift cards! The first was snapped up by Rhand - and then I was told that Amazon gift cards don't work out of country. Lame. But we worked it out.

The second winner was Hungry Marmoset, who I assume will use the money on... what do marmoset's eat? What is a marmoset? It seems our AMA raised more questions than it answered.

Please feel free to get in touch with me at any time, and stay tuned for the next activity whenever that may be. In the meanwhile follow me on instagram @xiaolaiwxw, keep reading, and spread the word!

A titan, forefather, and legend of the wuxia scene passed away today. Jin Yong, author of The Legend of the Condor Heroes, The Deer and the Cauldron, Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils, to name just a few, has gone off in search of new adventures in the jianghu. 

He's one of the most popular wuxia authors out there, with 15 works written between 1955 and 1972 that've sold over 100 million copies worldwide. Considering that his books were written half a century ago, it's stunning to think that they're still spawning adaptations, remakes, and spin-offs!

I just wanted to share because growing up in Taiwan, Jin Yong was an author that definitively shaped my childhood and that of many others. Harry Potter is everywhere these days with the books themselves, theme parks, and pop culture references. That's kind of how Jin Yong's like in Taiwan. You can't go anywhere without seeing a drama, movie, or game based off of one of his works. 

Instead of binging webnovels, we binged his series. If you wanted action, adventure, and romance...

As some of you may know, I occasionally provide high resolution wallpapers as a reward to sponsors. I've decided to release some of the old ones to everyone, starting with one of my top favorites, the Spirit Stream Sect. In the coming months I will release others. Eventually, I will put the wallpapers on the art gallery page as well. For now, they will exist only in this announcement post.

Please note that I've embedded a spell formation in the wallpapers that makes them invisible to non-fans of the novel. That's right, ONLY FANS can see the art! If you haven't started reading the novel yet, but can see the wallpapers, it means you are obviously a future fan, and should start reading the novel immediately!

Right click the image you want and "save as" to get the wallpaper. I'm including a temporary link at the bottom for the 4K version (3840x2160) that will expire after a week (it's too big to include directly in the body of the post).


1920x1080 version


1080x1920 iPhone version


Temporary link to 4K version here.

Heyo peoples! 

I just finished spending 14 hours of my day today coding!!!!!! I'm super excited!!! :) :) :)

Totally not insane at all. 

Anyhow, tomorrow's chapter will be delayed to Saturday (so 2 on Sat!) 

See you guys then!~

Hey guys, 

The result for the 600 chapter event is out.

The winner of the lot-drawing is: Mrjoboto. Congratulations to him, and thank you all very much for taking part in this event!

I'll communicate with Mrjoboto and have the seal made according to his likings, and I'll show it to you after it's finished.

From the emails I've received, I can see that many of you have strong interest in this traditional seal and the wine gourd from the last event.

My plan is that I'll give away more items next time. Hopefully, you'll support LOAR a bit more. It's pretty costly to have these thing custom made and shipped from China after all.   

Again, thank you for your support and readership!

Utmost Exalted Elder is changed to Supreme Elder for the sake of clarity so as to not conflict with Utmost Exalted (cultivation rank)

Hey guys, sorry but I was sleep deprived when I posted my previous announcement and only just realized I got the dates wrong. I have deleted the previous announcement, but have copied it below with the updated dates for people to read. The most important changes for those who have already read the announcement: 

First Monday of December (Not January) = Down to 5 chapters a week

$80 and $100 tier deletion = 22nd of November (Not December).


OG Advance Chapters & Schedule Final Changes:

This is important information for all advance chapter sponsors and readers of Overgeared so please read. 

This will be the final schedule for a while. There shouldn't be any changes and I will let you know if there are. 

  1. First Monday of November = Down to 7 chapters a week
  2. First Monday of December = Down to 5 chapters a week and this should last for a few months until I get too close to the author.

Important advance chapters information. PLEASE READ FOR ALL SPONSORS: 

Starting from tomorrow, I will be putting a pause to my $80 and $100 tier....

Hey guys, I apologize for the delay in chapters. I couldn't get on my computer because of the screen situation, I even had to get Jaspaaaar's help to make an announcement for me.

I have ordered a laptop online but it takes a week to deliver (21/10). So I personally visited several shops in Vietnam (I'm currently in Vietnam at the moment) but they do not have stocks on many mid-end laptops... However, I managed to find a laptop shop that has stocks and will be transferring it from another outlet tomorrow. So I will be collecting it tomorrow morning. Meanwhile, I translated a few chapters with my phone for the time being. I have released 5 chapters for now and will be working to pay back the chapters I owe to y'all last week.

Sorry for the delay!

by Thyaeria

I'm going to be traveling a bit within China on ISSTH/AWE-related business! As usual, I prepare well ahead of time so that there shouldn't be any interruptions in the usual release schedule. However, you never know what can happen with planes, trains, and automobiles, so this is quick heads up to be prepared in case anything unexpected happens. As usual, I will provide the latest updates on twitter.

Hi everyone ^_^ Legion here!

We have a brand new MEN/MoE artwork for our sponsors! The link to the high-resolution wallpaper will be attached to Chapter 395, so be sure to check it out if you're interested! My plan is to add one artwork each month as a sponsorship reward, but it's prone to some changes depending on how long the artist takes. This particular work took some time due to the level of details involved. I'm already planning for the next one!

Note: The link will move down the sponsorship queue and will be removed when the chapter comes out of it!

Thanks, everyone for reading and sponsoring MEN/MoE ^_^

by Tinalynge

Hi everyone,

Unfortunately Thyaeria will be unable to translate for the next week or so after he dropped his laptop.
As always, he will make up for the missed chapters. Thanks for your patience!

Thy will make a post explaining further when he is able to.

by jaspaaar

Posting on behalf of FudgeNouget,

Unfortunately, Fudge is sick and currently in the midst of coughing his lungs out, therefore there will be no chapter today. It will, however, be made up either tomorrow or on Sunday.

Hey guys,

LOAR reached the 600 chapter milestone before I knew it! Thank you all for being so supportive. I couldn’t have gone so far without your love and support.

So to express my gratitude, I looked around and found something that I think will be a nice giveaway to you.

I'll have a personal seal custom made and delivered to a lucky reader of LOAR. If you don't have an idea what it'll look like check the pics bellow.

How to enter the event?

1.Post a review on https://www.novelupdates.com/series/lord-of-all-realms/

2.Be a Sponsor of Lord of All Realms

All you have to do is send me an email at [email protected] with the screenshot of your comment or you sponsor page, or both. Please put "Entry" in the title of the email. Also, you can do both to increase your odds.

The event will end on the 19th of November (Beijing Time). The winner will be selected randomly and announced on the 20th of November (Beijing Time).  Then, I’ll arrange for shipment within a week.


Okay, these pics are to give you a rough idea of the stamp.

Hello

Those who read Condemning the Heavens should be aware that I have been unable to update chapters for a little more than a week now, due to my computer being at the repair shop. This has also affected my ability to finish the contest at the expected time.

I am getting my computer back tonight and will begin rating the entries right away. However it will take me quite some time, so I hope you will all forgive me. The result will be pushed back a week from today and will be announced on the 15th of October. 

Thank you, everyone, who paid attention to my contest, so many entries were made and I am very grateful! Thank you all, and sorry for the delay with the results.

Hey everyone, I'll be live on the Immortal Index Podcast in a couple minutes to talk about all sorts of stuff. I'm going to be giving some thoughts about the ending of AWE in a completely non-spoiler fashion, in other words, talking about the pacing of the ending, and how the overall novel "feels". There will be a big announcement regarding ISSTH and a pretty major update regarding the Deathblade Clan. If there's time, I'll see if I can answer audience questions. Come join if you can, or check out the replay after the initial broadcast. Click here to join!

Hello!

I am so very sorry to have vanished recently, but my laptop broke. I did not know how to get the message out before, but now I have the chance to tell you all. My computer is at the repair shop and as soon as I get it back, I will return to releasing chapters. Once again, very sorry!

Hi everyone,

I've tried contests and giveaways, but I got 0 entries for the contest and 9 people for the giveaways. I consider these events failures, and it saddens me.
So, I've decided to put an end to this sort of events for now and start a permanent event, something I used to do while I TL-ed for the site that must not be named. LMAO

The event is fairly simple, and it will start when TE hits 700 public chaps in a few days. The actual method of distribution will be up to a poll because both methods technically provide the same amount of chapters, and it's just a matter of getting them evenly or not.

CLICK HERE FOR THE POLL!!

Option No1: Five Chapters Every 100 Public Chapters With 2x 21 Chapter Weeks Instead When We Hit 1000/2000 Chapters

Option No2: Number of Chapters Ranges From 1 to 9 Every 100 Public Chapters With 2x 21 Chapter Weeks Instead When We Hit 1000/2000 Chapters

Example for Option 1 = 5 chapters will be released every time the public chapters hit a round number of an extra 100, like the upcoming 700,...

ANNOUCEMENT:

Hi guys, it's been almost three years since we started this project on 28th January 2016 and our releases finally reached the final volume mark in about 3 more chapters, at Chapter 1795!

Throughout these three years, my team and I really want to thank all the readers who stuck through with us, supporting us via their comments, and especially the donors who supported us with their hard-earned money. 

AST is more of a novel that focused more on slice of life rather than being focused on action. From my personal opinion, the author tries too hard to include EVERYTHING in the fantasy genre into this novel, and this inevitably caused readers to feel that the novel isn't as 'smooth' as others, being way too chunky. Also, the many ladies in the harem might be a turn off for some. We probably already lost half the reader base because the story is just like what the summary said, 'This novel is about a guy who climbs to the peak while chasing skirts.' It's more of a light-hearted novel rather than one which...
