July Update

I’ll be brief:

  • My back has not improved, and due to some complications, surgery is … risky. I will need to wait until my vertebrae heal to have that done.
  • Until I have the surgery back pain will get worse along with possible nerve damage
  • Finances are not good enough to risk taking long leave periods and work is … unstable.

As a result, it is very unlikely that the next chapter of TWCD will be out before August. I’m sorry to have to put things off at a cliff-hanger, but that’s the facts.

The fic is on hold, not dead. Even in the extremely unlikely event that I cannot finish it I would find a writer to continue it and provide ideas and support.

(Liethr: Medical details are in the chat, Cat can tell you, I’d appreciate your opinion. )

Progress on next chapter

It’s about 10k words so far, and progress, while a bit slow, is a lot faster than on the previous chapter.

My back is not being cooperative, but I am working steadily towards getting this chapter out as soon as I can.  So far, so good.

Finally a new chapter

(Editing Gang Ninja Edit: this stupid bastard sat on his ass drunk for months without writing until we went to his house and beat the update out of him. Don’t listen to his lies.)

The next chapter of That Which Cannot Die is (finally) here, after long months of arduous research, heavy study, and combat against shadowy unnamed forces.

Minsta Redone

As you know, I recently mentioned art being done. The first piece, that of Galen Minsta, is ready.

I’m aware an artist already produced a work for this, but there were issues with the design, the presentation and other aspects that made it unsatisfactory.

Please leave your feedback here!

Art Update

After several… misadventures, I’ve decided to go ahead and simply have Armesan (original artist who did the Shepard, Benezia and Liara artwork) to do a set of colored art prints for iconic characters in the PremiseVerse.

The first lineup (already paid for by the kind donators of the Patreon) would be Ahern, Dragunov, and a re-do of Galen Minsta as some were not … pleased with the result.

The next ones would probably be Pel, Admiral Vandefar, and either Uressa T’Shora, Maxwell Manswell, or possibly Richard Williams.

All previous artists are either not taking commissions, no longer available, or unsatisfactory, with the exception of LuckyFK who is simply busy, I think. I may reach out to him if he has time to perform another commission later in the year.

As I have mentioned in the chat, if you know any artists or animators who are available on commission and do sci-fi type work I would be interested in them.

Please make sure they do have an active DeviantArt account, as I have now had multiple run ins with people attempting to use other’s art as their own, and the DA community routinely seems to rat these types out.
