After a little hiatus, I present you... the OTWS Christmas Special! :P

*sigh* It's been a long time, hasn't it? :)
Well, I have good news and bad news. The good news are: the OTWS is alive again! The bad news? Well, we are not continuing the story of the prophets, at least not yet. What do I mean? Well, let me explain in detail! :P

First off, the project is officially re-Christened! The new project-title is "Conquerors of Providence", which is deliciously cheesy, but at least it is a bit more marketable than "The Offtopic Wars Saga". ;)

I also have to say sorry for the delays. We had big plans about launching a completely independent site with forums and everything, but things kind of got out of hand (not small part because I was really wishy-washy about the design and whatnot... -.-') and so we ended up with a half a year hiatus while I was sitting on half a dozen completed chapters.
However, to make up for my tardiness (and as a half-assed attempt at apologizing for being so undependable...), I am going to put up THREE updates this week! That's right, one chapter today, one tomorrow, and the third one on Wednesday, which is also going to be the first "regual" update, and afterwards you can expect a new chapter on every Wednesday! And this time I mean it. :P

However, this is not the direct continuation of the previous arc just yet, but rather a long, long interlude designed to introduce a few more characters and broaden the world of the story a little. I'm confident in my work, but if some of you were waiting for the continuation of the main plot, my sincerest apologies for making you wait even more...

Finally... Meh, just the usual. Read, comment, criticize, donate, not necessarily in this order.

Have fun reading! :P

Gabe, in the first line

"its old name has long since forgotten"

shouldnt it be "its old name has long since been forgotten"

or "its old name long since forgotten" ?

Goddamit, I thought I fixed that line! Don't tell me I put up the old version! Again?! Be back in a minute... -.-'

<Edit>Holy sarsaparilla, it -is- the old version! It even has that "numbskull" typo that made me laugh my ass off when I first noticed it a month ago! Damn, I messed up again! Ugh, the embarrassment! T_T

Also, since we have quite a few new members here since the last update: if you have any comments on the stuff, take it to the blog. This thread is basically a newsroll for updates, NOT an actual discussion (originally it was but kind of got out of hand and Yorhel locked it for a while).

Just as promised, new chapter's up! Have fun. :P

And here we go! :D
This is the third and last chapter of our rapid-update session, the next chapter is scheduled on next Wednesday. As always, have fun reading, and I still warmly welcome any comments and/or donations. :)

Blog is temporarily down, I'm messing with the templates to make the whole thing a bit more appealing to the eye. :P

I'm kinda bumping this thread a lot this week, but this is the last one for a while. The reason for this particular one is this: link

I did a visual overhaul on the blog, and to celebrate the occasion I also uploaded the first chapter of another wacky novel I'm (quite sporadically) writing. So, again, have fun or something, and see you next week. :P

*big sigh*
Goddamn google... -.-'
I got my account locked for the past few weeks because of "suspicious activities from my e-mail address" (what does that even mean!? D:<), so now I'm going to post the next update right here, right now. I will try to set up an automatic updating mechanism in the future so there would be no more hiatuses like this, but once again, blame Google, not me... -.-'

That said, here's the next chapter.

Goddamit! I not only completely forgot to set the schedule on the auto-update, but I completely lost my sense of time as well! Until I looked at my calendar this morning I would have sworn that it was only Wednesday! Arrrgh, I hate summer! It always kills my inner clock! @_@
Bitching aside, new chapter's up if you are interested. I'm actually a little proud of this particular chapter, as I consider it my favorite of all the ones I wrote this far. Anyways, have fun reading or something, I'm out.

P.S.: It's fucking hot out there! I hate summer! T_T
P.P.S: Comment! Pabloc or Ahaz or someone! Not getting any feedback is killing me! x_xLast modified on 2012-06-22 at 18:54

Personally I felt that Jason would've worked out better had he been a Cylotron from the start instead of slowly turning into a Cylotron. The biggest issue I have is that the way you present Cylotrons is that they are this big kind of magical race which relies on Sun propulsion. That's fine, but it doesn't make sense with having Chris slowly turn into a Cylotron vs him already being one at birth.

The other comment I could say is that Earth, spin left or right, is something that is tangible. Using it as a currency makes no sense because it doesn't allow Earth to live up to it's potential. Perhaps if you allowed Jason to become a Cylotron it would've worked.


Okay fine I didn't read any of it yet. The above is the result of me randomly spouting nonsense. I'll check it out though, although considering the amount of chapters you have it'll take me awhile to get to the most recent one. I'll give you real comments once I actually get to read it.

Ugh... I kind of forgot to update for the past few weeks, but here's the next chapter anyway. :P

Okay, so... Let's just say that my past few weeks were... not exactly kind to me. I was pretty much forced to drop out of college and look for work, which also put a huge damper on my enthusiasm regarding this project. As such, I decided to put all my bigger plans on hold for a while. However, I was kind of missing the old cast of the first arc for a while now, so I decided to do this snippet. It turned out to be pretty good stress relief, so even though I probably won't bring out any new big chapters in the foreseeable future, you can expect a few more of these non-canon mini-chapters in the following days.

Also, donations are still more than welcome. If you have a few pennies to spare, I would be more than happy to graciously receive it. With all this shit happening around me lately, it would be a nice change of pace. -.-

But enough of that, now please enjoy the first installment of Halubarudo-chan's Magical Adventures! :P

No comment, just churning these out for my own amusement (and maybe for yours too, who knows?)

P.S.: @ Horseband: Have you actually gotten anywhere with reading this? Just asking? :P

Hey guys, asking for a little help!
I made a TVtropes page for the story, and could use some help filling out the trope-list. I added a few already, but I would be really grateful if you guys could help me out... It's a bit too much for me to do alone... -.-

Hi guys. It's been ages since I was active around these parts, but someone just brought it to my attention that some of you beautiful feckers actually took your time to work on this nostalgic little brainfart's TVtropes page, so I came here to give you my thanks.

At the same time, I would like to mention two more things:

-Number one: The OTWS, under a new hyper-descriptive title, is actually on Royal Road now. If you are interested in a re-edited version, or just want to go down nostalgia-avenue, you can find it right here.

-Number two: In case you are there already, you might also want to check out my currently ongoing webnovel, The Simulacrum. People keep telling me it's good, so who knows? You might actually like it! :P

That's all folks, thanks for your attention.
