What's New

12 Dec 14

No box can hold a free spirit. That box isn't hold the mascot. The mascot is holding the box. That nonsense aside, it's time for a jailbreak in Chapter 12 of Tico4. If our gang is successful, we may just be heading into a new arc of the story. Look for more TTWC1 next week. Stay tuned.

The White Dragon roars. Er, that is, the white cat roars. (Or maybe she's just yawning.) Yes, the time has finally come. We're on our final lead for the story with Corona's Prologue of TTWC1. If I'm not mistaken, the story will wrap the last week of February and from there we'll dive into TTWC2. I've already got a good lead on it, so there won't be any delays in the updates in the foreseeable future. Next week's chapter of Tico4 is a big one, so look forward to that. Stay tuned.

I think I'm going to make this pic a recurring feature around Thanksgiving. Familial obligations, particularly my avuncular responsibilities, have been keeping me busy. Still, because I eschew the nonsense of Black Friday, I can scrape together the time in the wee hours to get this update out. We might just be giving our gang a glimmer of hope to be thankful for in Chapter 11 of Tico4. Next week we start things up with Corona in TTWC1. Stay tuned.

The mascot strikes a stoic and distinguished-looking pose to send off the Iron Wall Cataphract. We bid farewell to the seventh of our eight leads in Xenomachos' Epilogue of TTWC1. The next time we return to the story, we'll be following our final lead, the White Dragon Corona, who you got some brief glimpses of during Ionathas' section.

I apologize for the delay getting this out, but I had a family emergency to attend to. Those of you following the blog will note that I appear to be back in the saddle as far as making progress is concerned. Ideally, I'll keep kicking the ball far enough down the court that we won't have to worry about any more missed updates due to lack of content. That would've been nice back in the drought of '09, am I right? Anyway, we pick things back up in Tico4 next week. Stay tuned.

The mascot's attempt to escape to the roof is foiled. She's not the only one with no escape options. Here's Chapter 9 of Tico4. Next week we say goodbye to Xenomachos, so look forward to that. Stay tuned.

You have to muster your tunnel and venture into the tunnel if you are to claim the prize. Yes, it's a bit of a stretch to describe an upside-down chair as a tunnel, but I've stretched more to shoehorn a picture of the mascot into the theme of the week's chapter. Anyway, here's Xenomachos' Chapter 5 of TTWC1. One more chapter and we'll be moving on to our final lead chara in the book.

I'm thankful for my generous buffer as I've let myself get well behind the power curve as far as writing's concerned. I really need to set things aright and resume my more regular progress. I've found a lot of excuses, but nothing really justifies not sparing a good undisturbed hour or so to move my stories on ahead. Then again, perhaps this time off has served to recharge my batteries. Hard to say given all the poorly translated Japanese I've been wading through the past few weeks. Anyway, as far as update go, you don't have anything to worry about for a good long while and I intend to see that it stays that way for a good while longer. Stay tuned.

It's almost Halloween and you have to keep an eye out for spooky goblins and ghosts. Another place you need to keep an eye out is prison. The mascot is demonstrating how to be on alert and it'll likely serve our team well in Chapter 9 of Tico4. While they're busy enjoying the gentle hospitality of the most dreaded military prison in the Union, we can check up on the results of Xenomachos' bug hunt next week. Stay tuned.

This week's update is brought to you by this brave, somewhat irregularly shaped pumpkin, which was made subject to my culinary experimentation on fresh pumpkin. It was a nice bit of kibarashi after the marathon that was the first leg of that project I mentioned last time. Anyway, let's get on with the show. We've got Xenomachos' Chapter 4 of TTWC1 ready for you. Next week, we spend some time in the big house. Stay tuned.

There I was, blazing through Suikoden II, putting down the Mad King Luca Blight, when a big project falls in my lap. I'm just about to finish the first leg, but more is on the way and I'll likely be rather busy for a while, but I can still find the time for the weekly update. It doesn't hurt that this week features a short chapter. We got our first glimpse of the dreaded Icebox last time, but help may well be on the way in Chapter 8 of Tico4. We'll start in on the latter half of Xenomachos' section next week. Stay tuned.

The mascot has been reunited with the junior mascot and they're sorting through a tattered mess, not unlike the condition of the Zephyrian Third Legion. (Yes, that's quite a stretch, but it's at least some effort to make the connection.) Here's Xenomachos' Chapter 3 of TTWC1. This marks the midpoint of Xenomachos' section. We're drawing ever closer to the finale. More Tico4 next week. Stay tuned.

Four days of Disney revelry, a violent bout of food poisoning, kayaking in the rain, and a thousand-mile solo drive across five states in one day... Yes, I've had some stuff going on lately and it's thrown things off a bit. I'm still trying to get in sorts, but as you can see here, the mascot is adjusting to her new environs. Speaking of new evirons, a move of a far less pleasant sort is taking place in Chapter 7 of Tico4. Welcome to the prison arc of Tico4. Rough times ahead for our gang, but if the previous chapter is any indication, there may yet be some hope for them. Stay tuned.
