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!
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.
Here’s chapter ten of Wandering Fortunes! This brings us to the end of the first quarter of this story and about halfway through the first part. This chapter introduces a lot of new friends! With a place to stay found in New Zhopolis, Alden, Top, and Ropak meet their new housemates. Some ignore them, some are enthusiastic, and some are mysterious. Also, one of them says memes. You’ve been warned.
As it turns out, three of the characters introduced in this chapter are inspired by characters of my friends Paperlanty, Devon, and Darvo “Cthulhuigi” Prower. (Sheesh.) Try to guess which ones! Or don’t. I can’t tell you what to do.
Also something new with this chapter is a new design for the chats between Duth and Wally. Instead of having their name followed by a colon and then what they say, their text is on a separate paragraph. Not sure how good it looks online, but it looks a lot better in regular text.
Final work on completing Darmenzi has begun. It’ll still be a little while before I’m done, but I’m hoping to be able to release this book in December. You know, so people can buy it for Clichemas. Obviously. As a reminder, not only do patrons of my Patreon get the serialized chapters half a month early, but when Darmenzi releases you’ll get a copy of the ebook. Not only that, but if you give $3 or more you’ll receive a copy of the ebook a whole month in advance! Then you can see how amazingly it has improved from what I posted online last year.
Chapter 2: No Stranger Stranger is available to read now. In it we get to meet the next main character of Wandering Fortunes, Alden, and then, later, Top sings. Between that I would say it’s a good chapter.
Don’t forget, those who give to the CCC Patreon have the chance to read these chapters half a month early. Chapter 3 in just a couple weeks. And a reminder, all money from the CCC this month goes to charity to help keep the country from drowning, and that includes from Patreon.
And no, still no cover. It’s being worked on.
