May Chapters

  2. The Legend of Sun Knight Side Stories 18: “We Are Not the Dark Human Squad Part One”

Another month, another update! We have five chapters scheduled so far for you, one chapter each from our main series NH and LSK, a much needed update for Illusions, Lies, Truth (Yu Wo’s take on supernatural and horror!), and an update for Kill no More VS 1/2 Prince.

This month, we’ll also be releasing “We Are Not the Dark Human Squad Part One.” This was one of the promised side stories Yu Wo wrote for the End of the Year Event she held at the end of 2012. She hasn’t written a second part to the story yet. We don’t know when she’ll finish this side story, or if she still plans to finish it. But we’ve translated it anyway, and this brings us up-to-date on all current LSK side stories. There’s only one side story left that we haven’t released yet (we’ve already translated it). It is set post-canon, so we’ll release it after we’ve released all of V8.

Guess what? Proofreader applications are open! They will be open for around one week, until May 9th. We have a lot of chapters already translated, waiting for your expert eyes! You’ll be working on mostly NH and your pick of DE, ILT, Romance RPG, KNMvsHP, and/or some LSK. If you’d like to help make more regular releases of our side projects happen, as well as help us continue to be able to regularly release NH and LSK, come and apply! We seek proofreaders who are both skilled and dedicated. You will have a lot of work to do and be expected to meet deadlines. But of course, your workload depends on how much you can handle! Take a look at your schedule to see if you will have time for this! We will be putting you right to work!

To apply to be a proofreader, head over to our recruitment page and download the proofreader application. We have changed one question and added one more. Don’t rush — we want your best. As long as you send in your application before the deadline, we will take a look at it and consider it. We will be making our final decision at the end of the application period. We’ll keep you updated via Twitter and Facebook.

ETA: The proofreader application period has now ended. Thanks so much to everyone who applied! We’ll try our best to finish responding within a week.

Speaking of Facebook, raylight and EvlNabiki will be our new admins running the Facebook page. Raisha has taken good care of it for a long time. Thank you so much, Raisha! Let us know what you’d like to see on our Facebook page!

…This update is getting long! We’ll be editing this post with news about the new public forums when it is ready. Keep your eyes peeled. We’ll also update you through Twitter and Facebook.

    no DE? *defeated-puppy-whimpering-pout*

    I’m looking forward to the forum!

    • @snuffie
      Glad you’re looking forward to DE! If we manage to finish a chapter, there’s still a chance that we’ll add it to the release list for the month, but it’s more likely we’ll see a chapter next month. Maybe.

  2. you know we´ll have a baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaadddddd & large & nail biting month till the new LSK chapter…………. LOL

    even if it does hence cliffhangers
    Well, we will survive with such amazing chapters this month!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thankkkkkk youuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

    T.T

  3. I don’t know who to vote for in the poll… Neo possesses the sensing ability, which can help locate certain things… Carol had prior experience determining her location using natural cues, but she’s forgotten much of it… Both are handy in case some wild creature decides to attack… Both are kinda scary company… I don’t know!! I’ll just snatch Ohmygod and let him (it?) lead the way… Yeah, who cares about human company? Give me the gold slime!

    • @asdf
      Ohmygod, best traveling companion. Fall into a pit? No problem! Just call Ohmygod! Can’t find the way? No problem! Just call Ohmygod! Got beaten until you look like rainbow-colored bread? No problem! Just call Ohmygod!

      Ohmygod truly deserves worshipers.

    Proofreading for No Hero… That would be a dream.

    But there’s still the rest of Eclipse Hunter I need to finish up… Difficult decisions… Very difficult…

    • @Trespasserby
      (Come to the dark side~~. We have blueberry biscuits and fried chicken!)

      You’re doing an amazing job with Eclipse Hunter. :)

      Thank you. I really love the series. (Ah… You’re making me hungry now.)

      Here’s a series of instructions on to change how your name will show up as proofreader on your application. (Otherwise, the default name is probably your actual name.)

      1. Go to the Review tab and click Track Changes. (You need to turn that on anyway to make your edits.)
      2. The Track Changes button is made of two parts: A picture of an edited paper and the words “Track Changes.” Click on the words “Track Changes.”
      3. A drop down list should show up. Pick the last option: “Change User Name.”
      4. A window should pop up that allows you to type in the username you prefer.

      Note: You may have to do all this before making any edits. I can’t find a way to change to username on the edits I’ve already made.

    • @Trespasserby
      I don’t think there’s a way to change the username on edits that have already been made. It seems that edits made before you change the username won’t be updated. I’ve forgotten to change my username a few times myself and had to start over. Unless you don’t mind having your actual name on the changes!

    • @[PR]lucathia
      There is a way to change it.

      1. Rename your document from .docx to .zip
      2. Extract .zip
      3. Open comments.xml located in the word folder with Notepad
      4. Open document.xml in the same folder
      5. Replace text w:author=”wrongname” with w:author=”Dahlys” and w:initials=”W” with w:initials=”D”
      5. Save the file and zip it back up
      6. Rename .zip to .docx

      TADAAAAA~

  5. o.o! Illusions, Lies, Truth is back! I look forward to being scared?

    =’D I would apply for proofreader, but I tried to do that at Oddsquad before and didn’t make it… Probably need more experience. (I’ll just post walls of text in the comments sections for No Hero chapters instead?)

    I want to go adventuring with Prince! She has a sense of humor at least. Neo and Carol are a lot pricklier. (And Xiao Lan cooks well!)
    I also want to throw Charles into the forest to see how he would react. What are butlers supposed to do if they’re in the middle of the forest? Can he keep perfectly spotless? (But I can’t throw Ah Ye in there with him… Otherwise Ah Ye’s GPS will just lead them straight out of the forest.)

    • @15B
      We love your walls of text! Please never stop. XD

      We promise we are very kind to applicants. No pushing off cliffs, promise. :)

      I was tempted to choose Prince. Even though we’d get super lost, we won’t starve! In fact, we would have delicious food to eat. But I ended up choosing Carol. If I could be as shameless as Silvester, Carol would be a very awesome companion, hahaha. Oh, but wait, since I can’t cook like Silvester, nor am I a handsome man Carol can look at, I’m probably no use. *cries*

      Huh, Charles in a forest! He would be so restless without his young master to serve! Would surviving in the wild (and remaining spotless) be an essential skill for butlers? You never know when your master will want to go adventure in the wild. XD (Ah Ye, that’s cheating!)

    • Puppet

      @[PR]lucathia
      Oh no, I picked Carol too! Neo is old so I cant hit on him, no offense, and prince is actually a girl, but Carol is a badass girl! So I decided to hang out with someone cool.
      Now im useless!! NOOO!
      Oh wait, I can cook! Its cool, XD
      But then again if I was with prince ~~(ooh, yeah im actually nonchalant so even if I was utterly disgusted you could not tell and neither could I?)

    • [PR]raylight

      @15B
      I love your walls of text too XP We really enjoy getting comments in general so do continue them :D

  6. Gohankuten

    O god why did you have to make us choose between 3 directionally challenged people? Why couldn’t you have given us someone that could actually find their way out of being lost?!?!?!

    • dollyfishe

      @Gohankuten
      like grisia ? he’s just too scary to become a companion on a forest @-@
      but i agree … i cant choose any from those 3 !!!
      prince is just scary with all the bloody thing ( i didnt afraid of blood but gore is not something i prefer)
      neo will make me become his servant (and i dont want that !!!)
      carol … i cant droll over her !!!!! she’s a girl after all ~><~
      aside from those 3, may be i will chose liola !!! he's currently my fav after all ^o^
      (now i need to seriously think who i will choose from those 3 *headache*)

    • s_mocha

      @Gohankuten
      If you’re with someone who can find their way out, then you wouldn’t be lost in the first place XD
      But if i could choose someone to be lost with I would choose Aldrizzt, he can cook, he’s can fight and he know his way around.. (now I wonder if Aldrizzt become a butler, will he rival Charles?)
      Ah I also consider being lost with Ice.. Even being lost lost for a long time i wouldn’t mind, it means I can eat his delicious cooking, I can drool over him- ahem! I mean I can reach a better understanding of god of light..

  7. Jasae Bushae

    Carol. Neo would be next to useless and would steal my clothes. And Prince is not the sharpest tool in the shed when it comes to living in the wild. Carol while scary and unforgiving, would at least ensure id be fed if she didn’t kill me.

  8. Jennifer

    Between Prince, Neo, and Carol… This is truely a difficult choice. Luckily I have a pretty good memory and good at retracing my steps. But I can’t cook…
    I’d have to take Carol. She’s the most level-headed, the others would just cause trouble. With her luck, we’ll meet up with some other companions who’ll annoy us while helping us survive and if he gets too unbearable for Carol, we can drop him off a cliff and just grab Ohmygod.
    …it seems in a way… Ohmygod is one of Yu Wo’s most useful characters? I’m scared he might really be the true form of the God of Light. On one hand, that would be kind of cool. On the other… A whole kingdom has been worshipping a slime? I’d like to see the Twelve Holy Knights’ faces when they see they pledged 20 years of their life to a slime.

    • Jasae Bushae

      @Jennifer
      I don’t think the god of light is an actual slime.
      Recalling an earlier moment in Sun Knight, one of the lichs did mention that the dark god just happened to prefer the form of small girls, though said god wasn’t really as affixed to a singular form as mortals are.
      So maybe it just likes to be a slime?

    • s_mocha

      @Jennifer
      A slime? And sun wish the god of light to be a beautiful woman.. I wonder of his reaction..

  9. I just a bit confused…
    The poll said “If you were lost in a forest, who would you want to be lost ‘with out’ of the following?”
    But when I read the comment and the update, it implies “who would you want to be lost ‘with’ of the following”
    So, which one is it?
    Well I already vote with “with out” in my mind though…

    • Out of the following means those three are your choices!

    • @[PR]lucathia
      oh no then I just picked neo! Well it’s alright. I’ll just let neo walk first and let him get lost while I am running away from him

  10. First thought (for poll): Sun, obviously! But then the second thought is he’d probably (more then probably) be useless in there and and the one yo more likely get me out in good health would be Judge. So Judge it is xd
