GOD —The Beginning of the End— Volume 3: The End Begins
Original novel in Chinese by: 御 我 (Yu Wo)
Afterword—translated by lucathia (proofread by elisa)
The largest change in this volume was Saiximili’s personality, conduct, and some of his small quirks.
In the old edition, Saiximili’s personality was much more bumbling, and he didn’t show much responsibility toward his nation, though this could be because I depicted too little of the avian nation. The importance of his own nation to Saiximili was not shown properly. Anyway, when I examined this later on, I felt that this kind of Saiximili did not match the Saiximili I had in mind.
Perhaps he really doesn’t like being a king much, and isn’t very good at it either, but he is still the king, and he does his best to be a good king. Therefore, I highlighted his responsibility toward his position as king more. Finally, the king, Saiximili, is properly depicted.
Other changes include strengthening the guard captain Barna and Markham’s presence, paving the way for future plot related details regarding the avian nation.
Also, through writing about Dan and Ice Chess, I explained checkmates in more detail. I hope that this will make this aspect of the demon race even more intriguing.
Finally, I added some foreshadowing for new plot points around the corner, such as mentioning the two starseers’ love and hatred for each other(?).
Even though I had also somewhat brought up the “shared past” of Doom and Existence’s starseers in the previous edition, it was not touched upon much. You had to fill in most of the blanks yourself, which shouldn’t have been necessary. Therefore, I’ve added some foreshadowing on this topic. Later on, the “shared past” that the old edition had only hinted at will be clearly written out. This will be a great chance for everyone to get a better understanding of Existence’s faction.
I’ve written so much about Shooting Star’s faction. As their rival, the Guide of Existence’s side needs to be even more captivating than before! An evenly matched battle is much more interesting, right?
I want both guides, both starseers, and the seven sinners to be even more interesting than before.
And the avians!
In short, let’s make the world of GOD even more interesting than ever!

Old V3 Character Introductions
