NEW! Wandering Fortunes Chapter 34: Courage Now or Forever No Peace

Chapter 34 of Wandering Fortunes is here! Alden barges into the Thraundlus Kingdom throne room with intention to stop the sham wedding, but unfortunately the king has a lot of guards. Alden just has one Guardian. He’ll have to think fast to deal with the king, but help from friends is always good to have.

It’s hard to tell if what Top does is actually help sometimes, but it usually is.

New! Wandering Fortunes Chapter 33: Dungeon Duel

New Wandering Fortunes chapter! Alden has reached the dungeon, only to find the princess gone. Will he be caught, or will he find where the princess was taken and get to her? He’ll need to think quickly to get out of this dungeon optimally.

New! Wandering Fortunes Chapter 32: Food Fighting

New year! New chapter! Same fighting! Well, not the same fighting, but in Chapter 32: Food Fighting, Top enters the middle of a melee in the castle. They eventually get thrown into the one place they can do the most damage: a kitchen.

New! Wandering Fortunes Chapter 31: Knucklehead Goofball

The newest chapter of Wandering Fortunes is up. In Chapter 31: Wandering Goofball, Ropak fights Thraundlus Kingdom soldiers to help Alden’s path to the dungeon stay clear. He runs into Top, and the two act like a pair of mad loons fighting the Thraundlus Kingdom. The Salenth Kingdom backs them up, but only if they can deal with Top and Ropak’s nonsense.

New! Wandering Fortunes Chapter 30: A Friendly Deed

Wandering Fortunes Chapter 30: A Friendly Deed

Here we are, the beginning of the climax. Alden fell in love with Princess Serani, but now she’s been captured by an enemy kingdom. He joins the Salenth Kingdom’s military to try and save her, with Top taking up distraction duty. But Alden will find more than the princess here. He’ll have to juggle his goals until he figures out a way to make up for things.

New! Wandering Fortunes Chapter 29: Friend Missing; Love Gone!

There’s something big going down at the border of the Salenth and Thraundlus Kingdoms. In Wandering Fortunes Chapter 29: Friend Missing; Love Gone! Alden finds his search for Ropak derailed when they stumble upon a Salenth Kingdom military camp. He gets himself involved in a big mess with Top and other friends to back him up, but he’ll have to rise himself to the occasion for this challenge, both to tackle it and to even get in it.

This chapter leads into what is basically the climax over a series of chapters. We’re heading into action for the rest of this story, get ready for a ride!

New! Wandering Fortunes Chapter 28: Sorry Search

Wandering Fortunes Chapter 28: Sorry Search

Alden snapped at his friends and broke them apart. Can he pull himself together and apologize, or will they drift away? It may be night, but he’s not going to stop until he’s made up with Top and Ropak–but that may be easier said than done, and there may be something unexpected afoot…

If you want to help me continue making these, you can pledge and give some money on my Patreon or Ko-Fi! The former is a monthly pledge while the latter is a one-time gift, and with both you can see the next chapter a month early if you want to find out what these soldiers are up to sooner. I also post a weekly update on Patreon where I talk about what work I did that week and post a small excerpt, and it’s usually pretty far ahead compared to what I post publicly or even unique to it.

New! Wandering Fortunes chapter 27: Fools and Love

Chapter 27 is now up! Alden continues to bemoan his falling in love with an unattainable princess, but hope springs eternal when he learns she’s hosting a party soon and Top’s Pizza is doing some catering! He now has an in to meet the princess. Will he woo, or will he choke?

I’m charging into the final main edits for Wandering Fortunes–all I have is the final chapter. There’s more editing to do after that but that’ll leave me ready to post the rest of this story over the next year. I have a lot of work and a lot of projects, so I’m always busy.

And hey, if you want to help ensure I actually have the time to work on all these things, check out my Patreon! It’s a service where you can give a certain amount of money each month (like $1 or $3) and maybe get stuff from it. I’m gonna be posting chapter 28 for patrons later today, and I give weekly updates on what I’m doing, too. I also plan, if I reach a hundred patrons on there, to make Cloudy Cuckoo Cosmail a regular thing. If you can’t or don’t want to give monthly, I also have a Ko-fi where you can give a one-time donation of $3. Every bit helps!

Wandering Fortunes Chapter 19: Homesickening

Here it is. Chapter 19. Ropak, Alden, and Top return home one last time. The Zhopian Guard is after them, they have to leave the planet, and they want to see their families one last time.

And then Ropak sees something horrible.

And then Ropak does something horrible.

This is probably the darkest chapter I’ve yet done. This is the one where everything is sad.

New version of “Tough as Blades” short story

Some time ago I took to the short story I posted here years ago and edited it rather significantly, using the knowledge I’d gained from having an editor go over Slubes. Although it’s not entirely something new for this month, there are new scenes, including one that show how Master Hydra met Crawmaster, and all the old scenes have been thoroughly edited to be much better. “Tough as Blades“, the story whose title was the result of me forgetting that the actual phrase is tough as nails and that nails and blades don’t really have all that much in common??

One more month of 2016. On January 1st, Wandering Fortunes begins. A new world. New characters. New species. New nonsense. New beach ball. Around mid-December (the 16th or a few days after) I’m going to post some information to start diving into the new setting and everything of Wandering Fortunes. We saw Mintop over two books. Now we’ll see two planets over one book.

Of course, if you want to see this story start half a month early, you can become a patron over at Patreon!
