Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 149

One of my roleplay groups is trying to put together a shared universe for a modern superpower setting.
But we’re a bit stuck on the primary explanation for superpowers.

I proposed something styled after Chaos;Head and Scientific Railgun but they shot that down based on the grounds of the historical information of the setting. (That small numbers of superpowers have always been present but in hiding)
So we only really have the generic explanations like mutations and stuff has options at the moment.

I want to come up with something that has more flavour though.
If it was more scifi it’d be easier but trying to keep the explanation aligned with real world history gets tough.

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 148

Heyy guys, so a discovery has been made that some Kengo’s and Kensei’s had been mistranslated as the opposite since Snoring Dragon took over.
Now quite frankly I don’t want to go back through each chapter and work out which ones are which…
But if you happen to spot an obvious mistake in any chapter leading up to this (or after, but we’ll try to catch those in advance) then just flag it in the comments and we’ll set it straight.

I’ve been relatively civil in these posts but editing has become a chore since the switch, so hopefully things improve in the future.
I feel bad for saying that though, I know every translator has to start somewhere.

This is also technically the April Fool’s release depending on where you are in the world and I was planning on writing a short story as a bonus chapter, where Lily accidentally spreads a modern illness to the other world and they end up getting locked away for a month. But apparently there are snowflakes on the internet that wouldn’t like that and as a result I was advised not to.

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 147

Dex keeps saying he never has anything to write about in these little publication sections.
I guess this just means he doesn’t have any hobbies?

There’s always something to talk about.

In my case I actually had a few options.
I’ve been playing Minecraft with a new friend lately.
I started playing Stellaris with Federations installed. (I got a good start but event chains have been screwing me over going towards the mid-game)
I’ve recently finished watching the Azur Lane anime. (I gave it a 6/10 maybe 7/10 for the shipfus and 8/10 for Unicorn)
And of course continuing Fate/Grand Order with Cosmos in the Lostbelt.

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 146

So I just got reminded of that time years ago when World of Warcraft accidentally had an in-game plague due to an infectious raid debuff.
I like to think that the research done on that is being used in modelling Covid now.

Quite the story there though.
The debuff was for an instance only and was removed when you left, but it spread to every entity, player or npc. Which meant that pets and familiars could also be debuffed and they weren’t checked when you left the instance.
So they turned into carriers that brought the debuff out of the instance and infected players and npcs in the persistent world.
It turned into a huge deal with groups of high level players attempting to quarantine the starter zones and people resorting to terrorism to spread it to as many people as possible.

The ending was a bit of a let down. They just rolled back the servers.
I know they were probably more worried about resolution speed than anything else, but a cure event would have been pretty cool.

Editing is a little rough this chapter…I got about two hours sleep for various reasons.
(Quarantine seems to be getting to my other family members)
