Darmenzi Chapter 16: Ending Maneuvers

Chapter 16: Ending Maneuvers

We’re in the final quarter of Darmenzi now! To start it off, we check in on someone we haven’t seen for a bit, then dive into a fantastic setting that gets broken into by another old “friend”. I’d have to say I particularly like this chapter, as we get to see some things we haven’t had a chance to examine too closely before, and the character interaction is amazing. When I get silly, I hold no punches from oversized novelty punching gloves.

On a side note, Slubes ebook is still free until… Wait, hold on… Smashwords is doing a sale this month. Okay! It’s free until the end of July, whee!

In other news, I’ve gotten work started on editing the third novel, Wandering Fortunes. I’m primarily combing through it right now for what major things I need to edit, but next week I’ll get underway on that. More on that near the end of the year!

Darmenzi Chapter 15: Abandoned Electric Isle now available

Duth_Olec: Hey, you try coming up for good designs for elemental guardian thingies that aren’t actually elemental. I mean, that is to say, whatever brought these guardians into being was probably amazing and smart and at least passable in looks.

Chapter 15: Abandoned Electric Isle

Chapter 15 now available, featuring a mysterious island and a bunch of electricity everywhere. It’s dangerous and weird and definitely not my fault.

With this chapter we are 3/4 through Darmenzi! The end of the year will see the finish of this story. The actual release of the novel, well, who knows?

Chapter 14 of Darmenzi, Solid Stone Will, now up

Here‘s chapter 14 of Darmenzi, which brings us to an area first shown in Slubes but never actually traveled to. It also features bush animals and a puzzle.

In related news, I finished the main editing of the last chapter of Darmenzi yesterday, so now it’s time to go back and do wider edits such as tightening the character arcs and insert other words here that makes it sound like I know what I’m doing. I hope to have that done by mid-June if not end-May.

As always there is my Patreon, where patrons can read these chapters early and get expectations!! Are they great expectations? Well, they’re not bad.

Darmenzi Chapter 13 now up

Oh, um, er, eh, April Fool’s! Yes, it was totally intentional that I didn’t post the new chapter yesterday. ha ha ha ha hahahahahaHAHAHAHAHA HA HA HA HA HA. HA. HA. HA. HA.

ha

So here’s chapter 13 of Darmenzi, Aquasphere. It features water and a brief discussion of anime and was rather significantly edited a few years ago after I played the demo of a little game called Undertale, maybe you’ve heard of it.

I’ve had about 5 hours of sleep now so I need a nap. Mention of Patreon, which I think I just discovered every post I’ve made announcing new chapters up have only been available to patrons?? I like don’t even know. I’m confused now. Gee, what else is new?

New Part of Slubes is up!

The first half of Day 2: Interp of Slubes is now public here! Funnily enough, Interp does not appear at all in it. I guess there’s some limitations to naming parts after locations. What is in this part, though, is the first confrontation with forces of The Conqueror.

If you had donated to my Patreon, you could have read this two weeks ago. Patrons will be able to read the next part in two weeks, half the time of everyone else.

Character Profile: Sawn

When The Conqueror realizes the crystal is being gathered up by inhabitants of the planet he intends to invade, he decides to show them his might—but covertly. He doesn’t want them realizing he’s there, so he begins to recruit agents from the planet below using his technology, starting with an animator.

Sawn is a buzzsaw. That’s really all there is to it. It’s a buzzsaw brought to life through nanotechnology, and now it has two big, red eyes on its side. It’s quick to anger and quick to just about everything else. Floats like a bee, stings like an angry blade of death. It relishes in destruction, whether it’s sawing through wood or living tissue.

As it was given sapience by The Conqueror, it aims to rebuild the crystal and kill whoever gets in its way. But this is only the first agent The Conqueror creates, and there are more to come…
