Hey everyone, 

This is a post reminding everyone that there is one week left until the submission deadline of November 15th, 11:59 pm (GMT +10). All entries have to be submitted by this date to be valid.

Please fill out the google form below to make a submission. I've had several submissions for OG using the EYEM/RR Contest form. I have accepted them but please try to fill out this form. It make things a lot easier for me to organize things for voting. 

I've had multiple character fanart entries and some scene fanart and fanfiction entries. I am still hoping for more for the scene fanart and fanfiction contests. For the fanfiction submission, you can write anything as long as it is related to the novel OG. It can be ongoing (not completed), alternate universe or even a poem if you want. The readers are voting after all!

Sorry for all the term changes lately, I've been going back and looking at some terms that I could've translated better or whose translation I decided when I didn't have enough information. 

Pagma's Swordsmanship is one I wanted to change for a while but didn't have time to fix (then I realized Wuxiaworld has an auto find and replace function so I don't have to manually change everything).

 I decided on Pagma's Swordsmanship because the last character of the word in Korean could have multiple meanings and I wasn't certain which meaning was correct. I chose the most likely one. Later, more information was given and it was the wrong choice. For reference, the author has always used the Korean word for sword dance only when referring to Pagma and Grid's sword dances. All other swordsmanship styles has used a different word, which explains why some people mock the sword dances in the novel when compared to other swordsmanship. This wasn't really shown when using swordsmanship for everything.

I am finally fixing it so...

Hi guys, it will soon be the sixth anniversary of when I started translating on December 7th. To celebrate, I have decided to hold a fanart and fanfiction competition for all my novels where you can gain the chance to win some cash prizes. Since I know that Overgeared will probably have an overwhelming number of entries if I join all my novels together, I have decided to hold two separate competitions. One for just Overgeared and one for Ranker's Return and Everyone is Young Except for me.

Since RR and EYEM are both newer novels, I am a bit worried about the number of entries. Therefore, I have decided to increase the prize for the EYEM/RR competition compared to the OG competition. So if you are worried about too many entries for the OG competition and that you might not win, feel feel to submit entries for both competitions and your chances will go up.


The submission date for this event is November 15th, 11:59 p.m. (GMT +10). All entries have to be submitted by this date to be considered valid. After this, there...

In the next few months, my editors and I will be slowly re-editing chapters approximately 1-110 from the first person perspective to the third person perspective. This is to make it more consistent with the rest of the novel and a better read, instead of the random switching between POVs in different chapters.

This is just to let the people reading the early chapters know in case it happens while they're reading.

by rainbowturtle

I am making some more small changes to the terms.

Suppression energy will become pure energy. (For those who can't remember, suppression energy was originally the energy used for Piaro's Pounding Mortar)

White Tiger's Attitude will become White Tiger's Posture.

Sorry guys, I need to take a one week break. 

In fact, I've been worrying a lot the last few days because I've been gradually getting sick. I took the coronavirus test and fortunately, I just received news today that it is negative. I just have the common cold or flu. However, I am still sick and exhausted from overworking. These last few weeks or so have been a trying time for people in the health field.

As a result and on the advice of my doctor, I am going to take a one week break to rest, get better and recharge my batteries.

The remaining chapters for this week have already been done and scheduled to be automatically posted. There will be no chapters starting from Monday and will hopefully only be a week. I'll be sure to let you know if anything changes.

Edit: If you're a sponsor then you can email Wuxiaworld to ask for a partial refund if required.

Hey everyone, 

As many of you know, I am an Australia translator and my country is currently undergoing a terrible crisis, with the worst bushfires burning Australia. People have died, lost their homes and countless wildlife are on the verge of being extinct, and the bushfires don't seem to be ending anytime soon as the hottest summer months are still to come. 

Fortunately, I am currently unaffected so far but I do know some relatives and friends who have lost their homes. I am constantly praying that I don't receive any bad news, though most of them should've evacuated the danger zone. 

I am asking for anyone who has any amount they can spare to consider donating to help those affected. Any amount, no matter how big or small, will be a helpful. If you can't afford it, I hope you can pray and keep us in your thoughts. I will provide links below if you want to consider donating. I'm not sure which ones accept payments from overseas but several of them should accept paypal. 

In addition, I will be volunteering to help...

Hi everyone, 

OG's author is currently on a two week break because they are in poor health and need rest and treatment. The publishing company said that the author will return either on the 13th or 16th of December, but it might take longer depending on the author's state. 

I have a one week buffer to the raws from the last advanced chapter (meaning I have enough chapters to release for another week), but I need this one week buffer because due to my busy schedule, I translate all of the week's chapters on one day, and this tends to be the start of the week. This means that I can't be caught up with the author and following the days when the release it. E.g. I translate chapters on Monday and author releases chapters throughout the week. This means that if I am following the author without a buffer, all chapters for the week might end up released on Sunday and I don't want that.

TLDR~ OG is paused for two weeks until the author starts releasing again. Any sponsors who want a refund can ask for one by emailing wu...

My 5 year anniversary of translating is coming up on December 7th. To celebrate, I will be holding a Q&A at Saturday 12 p.m. Melbourne Time. Please check out this event calendar to see what time it is in your time zone and join the overgeared channel on Wuxiaworld discord to participate.

P.S. Don't know how many times I have to repeat this but I can't do any mass releases or bonus chapters because I'm too close to the author's releases.

by rainbowturtle

Hey guys, the raw site that I was using for Overgeared finally added a missing chapter, which some people might remember that I added as 769.5.

In order to make things more consistent and less confusing for me when grabbing the raws, I will be turning 769.5 into chapter 770. This means all chapters after that will be pushed up one number e.g. the lastest chapter 1132 has become 1133.

I am making the changes now and it should be all done by the end of today.

by rainbowturtle

Hi everyone,

Just a quick heads up that there won't be a chapter today; RainbowTurtle has had a fire at her house. There's nothing to worry about and she's totally fine, but she is of course busy dealing with the aftermath!

by Jaspaaar

As I mentioned a few weeks earlier, I am now really close to the author's released chapters when considering the advanced chapters as well.

Thus, on the week starting from the 9th September, I will be going down to 4 chapters a week to match the author's release rate. Current and future sponsors, please be aware of this when subscribing to advance chapters.

by rainbowturtle

TL: Hey guys, sorry but flu season has started in Melbourne and I have caught it. I've been feeling terrible the last few days but it finally hit today. I'm going to take the rest of the week off to rest. All remaining chapters for this week will be posted next week. 

by rainbowturtle

Hey guys,

Sorry, I live a few hours away from my family for work. Today I drove back to visit them for a few days and forgot my laptop charger. Don't have the advance chapter ready so the last chapter for this week will be delayed to next week.

I can still translate on my phone but can't upload chapters. Expect all of next week's 5 chapters + this week's one chapter to be uploaded on a single day, probably thurs/fri depending on how tired I am from the drive.

by rainbowturtle

Hey everyone, I have several things I have to talk about so please read it all. 

First all, Overgeared is back sooner than expected? Yay? I actually though I would be getting a month's break and planned a holiday. I will be flying to Vietnam on the 4th December and spending almost two weeks there. Chapters will still go out as usual because I have some stockpile now that my$80 and $100 tiers are no longer active.

Second, new schedule. I will be going down to five chapters a week tomorrow, like originally planned, I also won't be making up for the week of missed chapters. Like I said, I don't want to catch up to the author too quickly. I would rather get an extra few months at five chapters a week, than do seven chapters (make up chapters) then suddenly have to go down to four chapters a week. 

Third, there have been issues with older chapters having the end of the chapter cut off, leaving parts of the chapter missing. They tend to be pretty obvious since they are cut off in the middle of a sentence. If you notice...

by rainbowturtle

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....

by rainbowturtle

Hey guys, I didn't want to change the schedule but I was looking at the number of raws today.

Currently, I have released 814 chapters and there are only 907 chapters released in the raws. The author releases at a rate of 4 chapters per week, which means I will catch up in around two months. This will be even sooner for advanced sponsors considering I am currently up to chapter 844 for the highest tier.

Therefore, I have decided to gradually slow down the release rate instead of jumping straight from 14 chapters to 4 a week. 

Starting from next week (the start of October), I will be releasing at a rate of 10 chapters per week. This might decrease further as I get closer to the author, although I will let you know whenever I decide to do so. 

P.S. My birthday is next week so don't expect any chapters around the 1st/2nd of October while I celebrate and recover from the celebrations.
