  1. You're welcome Endarire, I'm glad it seems to have evoked a positive reaction.
  2. Hello to all of you who are still waiting for Aklon with nearly supernatural levels of patience despite the, er, substantial number of years this is taking. As is tradition in this corner of the Gibberlings 3 upon the eve of Christmas, I have for all of you a little snippet of what's to come. In this case a chunk of the quest for Aklon's possessions, specifically the beginning where you find out about it. Not all options for the PC are shown, but hopefully you'll get a taste of what's to come. So, with that, I'd like to wish everyone, wherever you are and whatever might be happeni
  3. Hi Celticrose and Glandire, Thanks very much for the well-wishes and for sticking through for as many years as this is taking, I hope you and yours, and everyone else out there, have a wonderful and safe holiday.
  4. Thanks for the well wishes Sir Carnifex. As for most hobbies, it's a labour of love, which is why I've kept on things for so long (plus a certain level of personal doggedness). I still enjoy the process, I just wish I had more time to do it in. Between work, personal commitments and general life, it can be hard to line it up with inspiration. Good luck with your own project!
  5. Thanks Celticrose and Jastey, I don't know if he will be entirely worth the... rather considerable wait, but I'll do my best so that when the stars align and the release date comes, he won't be a disappointment. And perhaps can fit within that fanfic.
  6. Thanks for the interest and encouragement, Psionica, Martin and Nyaore, and for sticking with this thing as long as it's been going. Aklon has been in writing for... some time, it has to be said. Kind of disturbing that that includes the entirety of someone's life and base schooling. I think my use of the term "soon" on the original banner was some kind of crime against language. With that said, I am still making some progress, and I have Aklon's recruitment quest done now, and I should hopefully have the remaining quests wrapped up in the not too distant future.
  7. Thanks Gofer, I do appreciate the well wishes, and your hanging around so long. Aklon's still getting his boots on, but hopefully he won't be too much longer.
  8. Hey Celticrose, jastey and Marin, Thank you all for continuing to lurk hopefully (I really need to check in more often), despite my continuing lateness. I really do appreciate the encouragement, and I'll hope to have something for you all in the not too distant future. I've really gone far beyond the definition of "soon" by now.
  9. Greetings, Cahir, Jastey, Brokenkatana and Nimloth of Thay, the Lurkers in the scrivening rooms of Aklon! Thank you all for keeping an eye on happenings here and I do hope the current situation out in the real world isn't making too great an impact on your lives. Since I am working from home, I have actually ended up with a bit more free time for not having to commute, and I have been putting it to good use with some progress. The quest to free Aklon by means other than violence is nearly done. I will then be getting on with his personal quests, interjections and then on to some p
  10. Thanks for the well wishes Glandire (and sorry for my delay in replying). I'm still making progress on writing, it's not as fast as I'd like but it is happening. Hopefully I'll have something for those still lurking hopefully in the not too distant future.
  11. Skooter the Cuter. I'll happily echo you both, G3's a great place and though I'm one of the quieter denizens, my thanks to those who do the hard yards keeping it going and I wish all who inhabit it a wonderful 2020 and amazing years to come!
  12. Hello everyone who still checks in to see my terrifyingly slow writing progress. We are once again at the tide of Yule, so I thought I would show a little more of what's actually been going on as a little bit of a present. What we have here is a snippet of just one possible path to freeing Aklon from Lehtinan's "employ", this one for people who'd like to buy him for themselves. I've removed the various qualifiers and other options the player has in this conversation, and there's potentially quite a bit more to be done here, such that the price is not fixed as stated if you only intend to
  13. Hi Cassie, Nimloth of Thay and Jastey, Thanks so for the well wishes and encouragement (ack, though I really do need to keep a closer eye on the forum I'm so late to reply). Slow as I might be, I'm still inching forward, and hopefully there will be an Aklon to play one day, though I think I've kind of gone well beyond even the most generous definition of "soon" at this point.
  14. Hi Fina and Corialote, apologies for the delay in responding, life is a little bit getting-in-the-way at the moment. Thank you both for the votes of confidence, despite the insanely long time I've been at this, it really is appreciated. As to updates, I've made much less progress than I'd like, but I'm trying to slot in as much regular time as I can for writing at the moment. I'm working on quests now, doing the part where a PC can choose to buy Aklon's freedom (or just buy him), and to reduce Lehtinan's rather steep asking fee, they can do a little job for him.
  15. Thanks for the positive wishes Isewein, though I've been working on Aklon a long time, I hope I'll be able to get him finished in the not too distant future, and while 15 years is a lot of time to be worth the wait, hopefully he'll be worth playing anyway.
