Hello fellow AST readers,

AST is about to come to an end in roughly about a hundred plus more chapters. It will conclude in roughly two months for ordinary readers. But, for those at the top of the sponsor list, the novel will end in roughly one month's time.

Nearing the end, subscriptions will be counted as one-time payments to read the rest of the novel in advance, so please remember this and end your subscription early if you'd like as there will be no refunds for those that have subscribed to a certain tier but haven't received the full amount of time. For instance, if you subscribe with 3 weeks left before Ancient Strengthening Technique ends, there won't be a refund for the remaining time.

Thank you for your support, let's get to the end!

Just a reminder about the previous post I made roughly 2 months ago (link)

Amazon E-Gift Cards giveaway!

There will be:

One $100 dollar amazon e-gift card to give away.

Two $50 dollar amazon e-gift cards to give away.

I will also choose ten additional minor lucky winners and there will be cash prize of $10 each, payable to you through paypal.

Next, how do the winners qualify for this event? Very simple, I just want you guys to leave comments after each chapter, starting from Chapter 1795. Generic comments like thanks for the chapters wouldn't count. They have to be about the chapter, as well as your thoughts and predictions for the next few chapters. 

The event will end on 31 Dec 2018 (+8 GMT), and I will make an announcement about the winners. Have fun and good luck~

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 can...

Dear patreons, AST will be shifting to in-house patreon starting from June. During the month of May, we will be gradually transiting over.


AST started on 29 January 2016, and if we count till today...our team has been translating AST for about twenty-eight months.  We started with a release of 3 chapters per week... As more people join the team, we increase the chapter count to 5... to 7... to 10... (this was considered crazily fast back then but a relatively normal pace given the standards today) and gradually to 15. 


But then again, many in my team are busy with reel life,  we have no choice but to drop the chapter release rate back to 12 per week. Rest assured, we are now trying to build up our stockpile and will definitely increase the release rate to 15 or even more once again once we have a healthier amount of chapters in the stockpile.


All in all, we just want to thank you all for the support in terms of either supportive emails, viewership, donations or pledges these past years. We are now about 900 chapters...
