Rather belatedly, I am here to inform the few fans I have that I have a patreon account. I had it for a few weeks already, so if anyone has some extra cash on hand, you can make a small donation to read upcoming parts of my ongoing stories.

Now if you are asking why I am on patreon, the answer is simple; I am a jealous man.
I have been writing for the past few years, and when I see so many of my fellow writers on patreon, I can’t help but want a small piece of the pie. Is this the most persuasive request for donations you would ever read? No, but this is the truth. I am a small-minded jealous man who want YOUR MONEY!

With the begging out of the way, I am also here to tell everyone I am writing a new story. It’s called ‘Grandpa Sweet Fist’ and it is my take on the mentor figure troupe. In most adventure/fantasy stories, there is always an older mentor figure who stood by the hero’s side through thick and thin, only to be off before the end of the story.

This is that story but told through the eyes of the mentor. I shall be adding in several other troupe like Badass Grandpa, Eccentric Mentor, Old Superhero/Villain, Absent Parent and anything else I can throw in. Why am I writing this story now when I am still writing the sequel of ‘The Suit-Maker’? Simply put; the sales of the ‘The Suit-Maker’ sucks. Sales figures are poor, and I seriously doubt it will get any better in the future. So hopefully, GSF will do better.

Thanks for reading!

The Suit-Maker' is available on Amazon!

It's finally out! The Suit-Maker is now available on Amazon and Smashwords. A hardcore sci-fi novel with cyberpunk and steampunk elements, I think the book is a bit of a risk but hopefully, I'll sell enough copies to break even. Please take a look.

Spread of the Dungeons: III of the Dungeon Hive Trilogy

It's finally here! The last and final book of The Dungeon Hive Trilogy is now live. 'Spread of the Dungeons: III of the Dungeon Hive Trilogy' is available on Amazon. The grammar has been fixed (if it's not, blame my editors), and the cover looks great. 
I wish to thank everyone for staying with me through the series and although I have no plans to do so right now, I did leave myself room to continue the series if I ever decide to go back to the world of the Dungeon Hive. Thanks everyone and please enjoy!

Spread of the Dungeons

Wow, it has been some time since I updated the blog! Sorry about that but here I am now giving you loyal readers a badly needed updated on final book of 'The Dungeon Hive Trilogy".
It is done. I have finished the book and it is currently with the editors. I was hoping for a June release but add in the time needed for formatting and I shall probably miss it. No one's fault but my own. Personally, I find this book to be the hardest to write because it's the end and I got a specific ending in mind. I had the ending in my mind since I began writing 'Fantasy Begins' and I think it sort of affected my writing process.
Still, it is done and I am pretty happy with it. Sorry for the long wait between updates but once the editing and formatting are finished, I shall be announcing the release of the book here. Please look forward to it!

A Small Thank You

Sometimes things have a life of it's own. That’s what happening with my ‘little’ side-project titled 'The Suit-Maker'. I started the story because I was looking to have a little fun and I did not expect much from it.
I mean the story is about a middle-age guy who is trying to be a designer of battlesuits. He’s basically a low grade Tony Stark and the story is almost totally about the designing puzzles he need to overcome. There’s literally no fighting (though I am thinking of changing that) and totally no romance. Yet somehow it started to gain fans. Right now it has over 100 followers on Royal Road Legends and I’ll be honest; I did not expect this.
I’m still not sure why the story is gaining fans but I’m not complaining. In fact I wish to thank everyone following the story on Royal Road Legends and Webnovels. Hope everyone is enjoying the ride and thanks for the support.

Gwent: The Witcher Card Game

Like most people, I discovered Gwent when I played The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. A delightfully addictive card game, Gwent took a life of it’s own and many players, including me, put aside the main quest in The Witcher 3 to run around the map to collect the cards. Seeing the unexpected phenomenon, developer CD Projekt released an open beta version of Gwent as a free-to-play digital collectible card game in May 2017.

I didn’t know about the game till much later but once I knew of it, I joined the beta and did all the things you were supposed to do. Climb the leaderboard; get the cards; join a Facebook group; play the game and have fun. Then six months ago, CD Projekt announced a revamp of the game before the official release in Oct 2018. Like most players in the beta, I was less than pleased with the announcement but I understood the reasoning behind it.

The game was in beta and CD Projekt do have the right to make changes to the game before the release. Hell, nowadays there are companies who change their games even after the official release! So I was willing to give them a chance and after a few days of playing it daily, the results are in.

First off, forget about Gwent before the revamp. It is now a totally different game and some players have begun to call it (old) Gwent and (new) Gwent. They are not entirely wrong. Gwent is now a more tactical game which requires you to have more interaction during the round. (Old) Gwent was more strategic and you don’t really do a lot of interaction with your cards after putting them down on the board.

That is good and I like this new change. Having ways to interact with the cards on the board gives players options and that’s never a bad thing. Having a more tactical aspect to the game is good especially since the strategic component of the game wasn’t completely lost. The decks are more varied now (though this may change as time goes on) and there’s more ways to counter decks even when you’re faced with a bad matchup. Push hard when facing a Scoia'tael deck with Eithne to get a short Round 3? Kill everything on the board when facing a Foltest Specters deck? It is possible. I find the different factions in the game to be more balanced after the revamp.

Also with the lowering of power in the game, there’s less point slamming and decks are now more effect-based. I generally find this a welcome change. I also welcome the design of the new board. I had my doubts when I first saw it but after playing for a few days, it kind of grew on me. It gives more favour to the game and makes you feel like you are a general in charge of an army.

However the game is also much slower now. (Old) Gwent was very fast paced and full of card chains. The new game is not. In the old game, I could easily reached the second tier of the daily rewards but now it would take about two hours to reach it. I think a shorter timer could be the answer but no matter what, CD Projekt need to do something to make the game shorter.

I also find some of the rules on the cards to be kind of arbitrary. For example; why does Foltest’s Pride has reach 3 when it needs to be in the melee row for it’s order to work? That doesn’t make much sense right?

Still, I do enjoy the game and is still playing it. I won’t say Gwent is now a great game after the revamp but I don’t think it is worse after the change. It is I believed just slightly better. So the results of the revamp is…mixed!
