CotE Decision

This is a relatively short post, but it is something I would like all of your input on. I have changed various things as I am going progressing in the story, mainly because it is Volume 1 so it serves as the foundation for the entire series.

I am currently getting further through Volume 1 and have come across a decision that needs to be decided upon. The energy/ion weapons. I haven’t really included them at all in the story since the beginning of the novel. Should they stay, and become a part of the novel during the latter half, or be removed? Leave a comment below sharing your thoughts on the matter.

This series is aimed at a Victorian Steampunk setting so I have the inclination that perhaps they don’t fit in. I can still have a form of rail gun within the novel by having a positive charged barrel when firing, arcs of electricity jumping off the barrel tip instead of a muzzle flash and all the fancy fireworks still.

P.s. I’ll remove this post after the decision is made to avoid clutter on the homepage.

Chronicle of the Eternal: Chapter 14

Editors: Templar, Jack Vanatis,
Author’s notes: The fourth and final chapter release. I mentioned this a while back, a couple of times actually, but this is the last free release of CotE until Volume 1 is published. I have changed the status of CotE chapters to be a total word count of the books completion (estimated). By the way, chapter 14 is estimated to be half way due to the word count, not amount of chapters.
Big news, we have reached 1 million views!! we actually reached it a couple of days ago. We also had a total of exactly 2000 comments, which makes even me feel slightly OCD over such a clean number. Only another 500 days until we reach 2 million at our current speed!
For now, my mind is weary, so I will have a bit of a sleep, a proper one, not one sitting at the couch with the keyboard across my knees. ^.^

Chapter 14 – Crafting

The school week finishes quickly, and the weekend begins. Regal wakes up early on Saturday so he can go to Atelier Gun & Bullet. Tanner had requested that he come in to earn some money, so he packs a loaf of semi-stale bread along with some fillings and a metal canister of water into his inventory for nourishment throughout the day. With this, he should be prepared for any situation.

He isn’t particularly fond of the bread, especially since the soul forming, but it is affordable and he currently only has twenty silver coins in his possession. The money he has earned over the past six months is about eighty silver coins, but the food expenses and the cost of dying once has already cost him three quarters of them.

Chapter 13 – A New Friend

Regal wakes up on his bed the morning after the practical ‘Cartography’ lesson with a dreadful pain in his head. It is the first time he has ever felt something so uncomfortable. His mind feels woozy, and moving his head causes the room to spin. It should be known that he was given twice as much alcohol as the others in his group, as he appeared to be the most dehydrated.

Awkwardly sitting up, he finds a strange phenomenon affecting his stats.

Chronicle of the Eternal: Chapter 12

Editors: Templar, Jack Vanatis,
Author’s notes: The second chapter of four to be released. Finally found my email related to my property manager and noticed an email for a property inspection coming up very soon. Going to be a busy body tomorrow by the looks at it, cleaning any cobwebs in the corners and whatnot, I’m sure you know how it goes.
Also, those two editors have left me a bucket load of edits in the next chapter… even though it isn’t all that long… >.<

Chapter 12 – Practical ‘Cartography’

The next day, Regal arrives at school and enters his classroom with high spirits. It isn’t long before Mr. River also enters the classroom, quickly gathering the students and bringing them outside.

“Class 4 students, group together with everybody else and don’t cause me any problems,” Mr. River points toward a group of students already prepared to depart in front of the school.

Regal is mixed into the middle of the students of class 4 next to Veronica as the class hurriedly joins the rest of the school. The classes gather together as the students form into their usual friend circles. Very few are left standing by, as even Kilde and Astore quickly group together with Regal and Veronica.

Chronicle of the Eternal: Chapter 11

Editors: Templar, Jack Vanatis,
Author’s notes: The first chapter of CotE to be released. The next three will be released periodically within the next 1 – 3 hours. I’m still waiting on dinner to be delivered, but there is just the final edits to be done.
Changes made to past chapters:
~ Lv. 1 Medicinal Herb is now just become just Medicinal Herb. There is no level attached to it and is just Quality: Bad

Chapter 11 – Results

The following day, Regal arrives to school as usual. He sees Frederick sneering at him while walking through the front gates, but decides to ignore him. However, dark emotions swirl within his thoughts as Regal mentally labels Frederick as an enemy, and plans to have his revenge when he is stronger.

The next familiar face he runs into is Veronica, who intercepts him while in the hallway outside of class.

“Regal, I’m sorry,” she bows her head slightly.

“Sorry? For what?”
