End Online Chapter 41

Editors: Dyngari, Templar, Jack Vanatis, Orang, genericIntent
Author’s notes: Second chapter release! Also, lots of news! the schedule has been updated (trail #2) to be a little more lax and easy to maintain. For all of you interested, the page link is on the sidebar.
I’ve been meaning to post this as well, but one of my readers has created something incredible. Christoffer R has composed a track for End Online. It is titled “Iceridge”, and if you haven’t guessed it already, is inspired by a winter landscape of ice and snow. I had wanted to create a video for it as it makes an excellent backing track, but I did not have the time. The track is planned to be uploaded to Soundcloud, at which point of time, I will remove it from here and add a link to the track in the End Online ToC. (Now in End Online ToC)
End Online has now been upgraded to a wordpress premium site! This means several things. First, now I will be earning money from the ads on my site instead of wordpress. I have a rough understanding of how it works, but I’m no techwizard. Should any ads redirect you from my site, feature inappropriate content or such, send me an email. It also means I can customize my theme, so you may notice me play around with it over the next day or two.
Lastly, a free custom domain! Unfortunately endonline.com is already taken, but I am currently tossing up between endonline.net , endonline.org , or just keeping it as is. Please follow the link to a poll and vote which you think is better. The most votes will be the final decision – Strawpoll
Considering that this is a double chapter release, please show your support by taking a minute of your time to follow the link and vote for End Online at TopWebFiction.com! Votes are reset weekly so even if you have voted before, please do so again! ^.^

Chapter 41 – For Survival

– Mikhail –

I hope we never have to play the part of Michael and Rood again. I can feel the cold sweat dripping down my forehead as Ralph and I leave Hollis Sylvester’s home. This whole thing was a first for me, as I’m usually a straightforward person, not inclined to such dubious acts as pretending to be from a company I’m not.

Technically speaking, Virtue is an under-the-table affiliate company of ours created solely for the distribution of the Virtual Link, but that doesn’t make it any better. This was the plan Ralph and I came up with after discussing what to do. The only other viable option was to break into the house and steal it; security isn’t very strict in this outer region of the city anyway.

End Online Chapter 40

Editors: Dyngari, Templar, Jack Vanatis, genericIntent, Orang
Author’s notes: Several pieces of news. First is a big welcome to our two new editors: Dyngari amd Orang. Thank you to everyone who applied for the editor position, there were quite a lot of you and your willingness to help is more than one man can ask for. Unfortunately I couldn’t choose you all, but I hope that if any new editors are required in the future, you will apply again.
I have received a few words from our new editors for you all.
Dyngari – “Hi all, I’m your new editor for End Online, Dyngari! I’m glad to be working on a fun web serial that I’ve been enjoying for a bit over a year now; Yoroshiku ne!”
Orang – (Orang has opted for the ye’ olde tradition of editor silence. Perhaps next time!)
Lastly, today is a double chapter release! I have been holding back despite editing finished as writing Chapter 42 was my top priority. Chapter 41 and all updates to ToC and links will be posted shortly. More news too.

Chapter 40 – Temple Trap

– Lost –

“Gladox? You’re the Gladox?!” I can’t help but cry out in surprise.

When I look at the four-eared wolf man, I can indeed see similarities between him and the famous player Gladox. However, there are a few differences, making me wonder if it is actually him.

The biggest difference is the armor, which is a deep obsidian color instead of the silver armor I saw on his videos. His sword is also different, but I can understand changing equipment as you get stronger, even if I haven’t done it that much myself. No, the main problem I have with him being Gladox is his height.

Editor Retirement

It was just over a year ago that our current head editor, genericIntent, joined the team and started helping with the editing for End Online. He has possibly been the greatest help in turning my horrendous grammar, half asleep sentences, and changing my mind in the middle of a paragraph, into a much more readable format.

I often made jokes about him taking a hammer to my writing in the process, and to be honest… No, I’m right, he really did take the metaphorical hammer to it. His well placed Monty Python jokes while editing were also always amusing.

As you have probably guessed by the title, genericIntent will be stepping down from the editing stage.

There will be a recruitment for 1 or 2 new editors, but I will make another post for that tomorrow. Today, I only hope that you all can leave a comment thanking our editor, who has always been working silently in the background, for all that he has done over the past year, and wishing him the best for the future.
