GOD —The Beginning of the End— Volume 2: Elf, Nanny, Thunderous Anger
Original novel in Chinese by: 御 我 (Yu Wo)
Extras—translated by lucathia (proofread by Trespasserby & Taffygirl13)
The new edition has reached volume two. If you have read the old edition, you will know that they are visiting a certain kingdom next.
The progression of the plot has finally reached one of the parts that I felt was regretful. I didn’t develop this kingdom enough in the past, so I hope I can add more to their visit of this kingdom. I also want to show more of matters between a certain king and his subordinate.
I have built up Dan’s presence more in this volume and strengthened the mystery behind the Guild. I also felt I could have done better with the Guild, but I have to say that my entire depiction of the demon race was too undeveloped. The new edition will develop them more.
Of course, the elves could use more development, too.
All in all, what I regret the most about the old edition is my lack of development of each race and kingdom. I believe this is because my first series was written in first person. I kept feeling that the story must revolve around the protagonist, so whenever the main characters separated, I would very simply skim over the branching paths of the other characters.
But now that I think back on it, that wasn’t the right way to do it. Wasn’t choosing to tell this story in third person exactly because I can write about things that don’t have to do with the protagonist? Yet in the end, the story still completely revolved around the protagonist, wasting the biggest advantage of third person!
Fortunately, I still have the chance to fix this imperfection and create a true “group of main characters.” It no longer has to resemble a first person story that revolves around a single protagonist.
I want to create a group of compelling characters!
So far, I wonder who your favorite character is among these “main characters?”
Even though I can’t help but ask it now, you can tell from the “dragon egg” that the main characters haven’t completely assembled yet! As for which characters are left, I will have to ask everyone to wait and see in order not to spoil new readers.
This time, each of the main characters will have more of a role. No longer will someone’s story be skimped on. I hope everyone will enjoy the stories of this group of characters in GOD.
