Chapter 4-05 (I really should have translated during all that time I had off thanks to Silent, unfortunately, I didn’t. Right now, I’ve got finals coming up soon and I’ve got drill this weekend and I’ve been sick since before thanksgiving, so I don’t know when I’ll be able to find time to translate for the next couple of weeks. I will have this chapter out sometime soon, hopefully during this weekend, but I won’t say any times for any chapters at this point until I finish finals, again, I’m sorry, I was too lazy and really should have done something.)

    1. Natsu still works with us, he’s just mostly the TLC now. Silent and I are the main translators, Natsu is the TLC, and Joeglens is the Editor. Due to RL issues, Natsu has been unable to work on the series (or his website upgrade) for a while, and there’s no end in sight (that I know of). This page is just meant to be a rough release page for our group, so we can at least get them out to you guys until Natsu is back up, at which time we will resume releases on his page, including everything that gets released here.

    1. This site didn’t really exist until a couple of weeks ago, as we had translated several chapters already, but Natsu (our only TLC) had been busy with a lot of things. As he couldn’t really TLC and he couldn’t post, I got permission from the whole team to use this page as a rough release page until things get back up and running. If you can, please spread the news so those who want to read it can find it.

  1. Dude! Do u guys realize that if u had waited that raising the dead was gonna take over?????? Instead of a chapter once in a while it would probably at least be once a week. Thus allowing people to enjoy and gain popularity. U could give them all the work u have and they would TLC MUCH faster than natsu. Just a thought guys. I just enjoy the series and hate what slow releases is doing to this LN. Especially considering we’re just getting to the good stuff. All momentum is being slowed😦

    1. Considering that they hadn’t contacted us, it’s fine to assume that. We have several chapters translated, but instead of doing a bulk release and risking a long period of no releases due to private matters, we’re releasing them at set intervals. As I’ve said before though, if anyone wants to help, even RTD, I’d be happy to discuss it with them.

    1. Yup, and I use the schedule function so it’ll be released at 8PM my time, no earlier, no later, so people don’t need to spam F5 until that time. Enjoy the chapter when it comes out.

    1. It will be released on the 22nd, I didn’t have internet until today so I couldn’t update it and everything since before the latest chapter was set up to automatically happen.

  3. could i please ask you to change to format slightly.

    currently it is “Chapter 3-16 5 June 2016”

    could i please ask that it be changed to “Book 3 Chapter 16 | 5 June 2016”?
    or to have Book 3 at the top and just the chapter number?

    i know this is really petty.

    thank you for considering it and thank you for working on the chapter its greatly appreciated 🙂

    1. Thanks for the support, and that’s why I try to keep people informed, I know some leachers will complain if they don’t hear anything, and I think I have a social contract of sorts to at least keep you informed because I made the promise. This is also why I try to give out dates and try to (very poorly though) keep to a schedule. Now, since that 4:30AM thing was actually very short and I have coffee in my system, it’s time to get to work on translating since I don’t have much to do for the next hour.

  5. So just a minor query but are you part of the military? (Potentially cadets don’t think you would be since bit old for it(at least I think you are))

    Like

    1. Yes, I am part of the military. How would they get my age? And there’s no way I’m too old for it, I’m still fairly young, I knew some people in bct who were literally twice what my current age is (close to the age limit, but they were being recruited as translators and going OCS).

  6. >In other news, my college starts up again on monday, but as long as I stick to once every other week, I should have no problem keeping up with releases.
    Uhh, no? Don’t forget to take part in various college debauchery and other activities. Even their local anime/manga club just to say you’ve done it. It will be all part of your memories of college when you get older. While I like more translations, I wouldn’t want them as the expense of you giving up your “college experience”. I found my college experiences to be a precious memory of both good and bad things I went through and there were many interesting people I met along the way.

    1. I do take part in them, I’ve also been the president of the Belegarth club (a medieval combat sport) and I am currently actively participating in d&d every wednesday, even started a group with some of my friends from the military, and some people are trying to start one at my school so I’m going to join that club too. I’m not missing out on things, I’m just lazy and like to procrastinate. If I really just dedicated myself to translation and cut out everything else, I could put out 2-3 chapters per day, if I was working to be a serious translator (instead of my current casual) I could have 1 out every few days with no difficulty, I just don’t like the strain that comes with it, that’s why the big gap. If anyone wants to join as a translator though, I’d be more than happy to accept them (after checking their skills, in most worst cases I would just have to edit their translations which shouldn’t be too much trouble).

    1. I’ve said it many times, if someone wants it, they can ask, and you overestimate the number of translators out there looking for more work. If you find one, put them in contact with me and we can talk, but I’m not going to just drop it.

      1. i have already read several chapters past where it is currently. i just would like to re-read with an official translation. if i didnt have two jobs i would do what you suggested. but im busy so i didnt do that. my complaint was that its a schedule which he himself put out there and consistently falls short of. what do i care? if he says once every two months and is on time i would be happy. however i will find a TL to take over if possible; they will contact him if i am successful.😀

    1. I do believe that I have a responsibility to keep you guys informed, I think it is rude to just drop off the face of the earth without saying anything, that’s why I try to update as soon as I know something is going to happen (training for example) or when something spontaneous happens (Fallout being given without an occasion, it turned out my friend got it as part of a bundle but he already owned it, so he gave it to me, or a bug making it so I can’t translate). Also, I picked up translating for the reasons you said, I wanted to read more, I only post since I have it done already, no reason to keep it on my computer and never let anyone read it.

  8. I don’t really know if anyone will notice or comment by the time it’s needed, but I play D&D 5e and we meet once a week. We just finished a campaign (Curse of Strahd) and are going to start a new campaign. I have already made up my character, but I’d like some feedback on the backstory I’ve written for him. As a little background info, my character in Curse of Strahd was a paladin who got the Sunsword during the campaign, my DM ok’d it passing on to my current power with it’s strength reduced. The crystal blade had been replaced, but it can’t do radiant damage anymore or release sunlight, so it’s now basically a longsword with the finesse attribute that glows. We start the Storm King’s Thunder campaign (it’ll be brand new, but the store we play at is an official league store so we get it free) on August 31st, so I hope to refine this story a little more by then. I aim to have him behave somewhat like Nyanta from Log Horizon, but a little more mischievous. He will take the swashbuckler rogue class when we get to that point too, so I intend to have him be a midline fighter doing hit and run tactics.

    Connor Fairway

    When he was still only 4-5, his family was attacked by bandits and he was the only survivor. Thanks to a Paladin wielding a sword of light who unfortunately arrived too late to save the rest of his family, he made it through the attack alive. Since that day, he followed the paladin as his disciple, training to protect others from evil, unfortunately, fate had other plans for him. One day during their journey, when Connor was just 10 they were attacked by a powerful foe. The paladin recognized that both of them wouldn’t survive and the only hope for survival laid in Connor. If he had fled, they would both be hunted down, but if he stayed back, Connor could escape. Knowing this, he handed his sword of light that he inherited from his master and passed on his name to Connor, the Fairway name that had been passed in this line of paladin masters and apprentices. After giving these to him and having him flee, the paladin stood his last battle, only to fall, but Connor succeeded in escaping. From then on, he continued to train his sword arm, and sought a way for more power to help others. He couldn’t find a master who would take him, and ended up living in the poor side of a city where he hid the sword of light. He started going down a bad path and caused trouble around him, deceiving them and conning them. One day, he happened to see a man injured in an alley hiding, shortly after the man hid himself so he couldn’t be seen. After this, a group of men came by asking for the hidden man, and Connor sent them in the wrong direction. After a few more minutes, the man came out of hiding and thanked him, saying he would repay him. Later, he returned and introduced himself as the head of the local thieves guild, the incident had occurred because he had an honor code, and some under him wanted to overthrow him and eliminate the honor code. As Connor had a hard life but still had light within him that resembled the honor code, he offered to train him as a Rogue. Taking up the training, Connor learned all he needed, when he turned 20 as an experienced rogue, he left the city to refine his techniques for himself.

    1. Perhaps the reason the sword won’t show is true power is because it’s wielder isn’t currently worthy of it? You seem to have a solid back story, along with a couple places to hang plot hooks — although if you’re using prepackaged adventures, I suppose it doesn’t matter so much… 😉

      Like

      1. That’s definitely something I can include, and having the plot hooks still works, my DM will make enemies sometimes to fit into our backstories while still progressing the campaign. We had one campaign where a Barbarian’s entire clan had been wiped out by one individual, so the DM made the individual and had us encounter him. The barbarian got his tribes spear back and now knew that his enemy was working for our enemies, so he had more reason to work with us. That’s also why I left things vague, such as the one who killed the paladin, so our DM can make it into something that fits the adventure. But I will definitely bring up the sword not seeing him as worthy yet, especially since it was sentient in the first place, so that would fit it better.

    2. you could maybe leave out that the paladin died so the dm could have him come back, possibly even have him have joined the villians for some reason.

      1. Ooh, that’s a good idea, but I think I’ll leave it as it is while talking to the DM about it, so this would be the backstory my character and the party knows, but the DM could know about the chance of him living, so it would be more of a surprise boss.

  9. Quick clean done within 10 minutes, hopefully its okay🙂 Also, if you ever need an editor, I’d be happy to help!

    When he was still only 4-5, his family was attacked by bandits and he became the sole survivor. Thanks to the timely efforts of the Paladin wielding a sword of light, he made it through the attack alive, but by then, the rest of his family had already perished.

    Since that day, he followed the paladin in his stead as a disciple, training to protect the innocent from evil, but as fate would have it, Connor’s life would be upturned once again.

    One day during their journey, when Connor was at the age of 10, they were attacked by a powerful foe. The paladin recognized that both of them wouldn’t survive and the only one with hopes for survival was Connor.

    If he had fled, they would both be hunted down, but if he stayed back, Connor could escape. Knowing this, he handed his sword of light that he inherited from his master and passed on his heritage to Connor, the Fairway name that had been passed down this line of paladin masters and apprentices.

    After giving these to him and having him flee, the paladin stood and fought his last battle, only to fall, gladly, as Connor had successfully fled. From that point on, Connor continued to train his sword arm, and strived towards a path for more power to help others.

    He couldn’t find a master who would take him, and ended up living in the poor side of a city where he hid the sword of light. He started to waver down a bad path and caused trouble to those around him, deceiving them and conning them. One day, he happened to see a man injured in an alley hiding, shortly after the man hid himself so he couldn’t be seen.

    Shortly after this encounter, a group of men came by asking for the man in question, and Connor sent them in the wrong direction. After a few more minutes, the man came out of hiding and thanked him, saying he would repay him.

    Later, the man returned and introduced himself as the head of the local thieves guild, and that the incident had occurred because he had a code of honour. His subordinates found that the code was unnecessary, and had tried to overule and eliminate him.

    As Connor had a turbulent life full of unfortunate events, he still maintained a light within him that resembled the code of honour, as the man offered to train him as a Rogue.

    Taking up the training, Connor learned all he needed, and when he turned 20 as an experienced rogue, he left the city to refine his techniques and hone his abilities.

    1. Thanks for helping clean up the backstory a bit, it’s easier to read now. Also, although I won’t take on a full editor (for the sake of not delaying it further because of my slow translations) if you want, I could add you as an editor on the wordpress page so you can edit them after they’re uploaded. Of course, I would need to see a larger sample of your work than this, but it’s a good start towards it.

    1. Partially because you’re the first person I’ve ever added to the list and I’m not sure how to do this, but what do I put as your username/wordpress email? It’s only allowing me to input single names, so I could put Nexias, but not Nexias Faldoran, and I’m not 100% sure that Nexias is you and don’t want to invite a stranger (an example of why, I put Nexias_Faldoran and it said there was no user and I put nexiasfaldoran and it says there is a user).

  10. Apparently there’s a novel aggregator site out there (readlightnovel.com) that is using our translations as well as a lot of other translators. For the most part, it looks pretty good, they do have a link back to my main page for translations, but they remove the in context credits (such as the translated by/edited by at top). I don’t mind them using my translations, I just want them to leave the credits on the translation, so if you do choose to read there for anything, and you see no credits or links to translators, please leave a comment for them so that it can get rectified.
