Happy Wednesday! Sorry that this is actually Monday's update, going up late. XP Thanks so much for your patience!

Here we go, it's a new day and the gang must take their GCSEs WGLCs. May fun times (?) abound.

See you on Friday with the next update, alongside a dash of Friday Flare. :)

@Mjkj: That's sort of what the mage-types have to deal with XD

Actually, Matt, that's pretty close to what the mage-types have to do! XD

Yay! Update!

So... Were back to the Grand Games are we? I can already smell trouble. The place looks awesome by the way! The insignia kinda looks like the United Nations emblem with an earth sign.

Madou is going make things very... Interesting. *queue evil laugh*

Hi Glade! :D

We're certainly closer to the tournament arena, geographically speaking, than we were when we were with Ophelia and Seia XD;; but the gang is standing in front of the World Guild, which isn't where the tournament is being held, just in case that wasn't clear. :)

The insignia has some special meaning to it! We'll see if I ever get around to having the characters bring it up... ;D

And Madou is... well, yes. XDDD Always. Madou.

bets on Cain -> 28 i doubt the rest would screw it up.
rufiangel 28th Apr 2016, 5:42 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Alright, your bet has been logged, mercy! XD I'll let you know how close your guess is when the time comes... ;)

(I suppose I'd have to fear for my life if Nemi messes up :'D)
Prayformercy 28th Apr 2016, 7:38 PM edit delete reply
Prayformercy
yes, yes you do. Nemi doesnt make mistakes. Artists drawing nemi make mistakes and try to blame her. Not gonna name names. Just specifically, artists, who draw lots of nemi on a periodic basis. :D

What's the chances that the World Guild is involved in Able's plot?

I'm not sure, Headgamer XD what is Abel's plot, anyway? XD;;;

Was well worth getting up a little early to read it. And now we shall see if any shenanigans ensue. I actually kinda hope not I want to see what Kylie's brother looks like already haha.

Awww Ted! <333 ;3;* Thank you for saying so! I'm really happy you enjoyed the latest update <333

I don't want to drag this out for too long either XD; but there are some things I want to kind of get out of the way before the events start to get really crazy in this chapter. Please stay on this train until the last stop! <3 *hands out bribes in the form of cacao juice and choco herbs*

As an experienced test-taker, who has learned to be (lucky or good) at scoring well above expectations, I advise the party to do anything they can to avoid being nervous. When you get nervous, things you know well, suddenly become more complicated. Now, one of the keys to avoid nerves is not to listen to anyone who tells you not to be nervous, so please ignore me now and go take your tests.

That is so true Nef, nerves is my bane when it comes to exams... :'D

Good advice for all ye college kids out there! >3<*)/

If Cain doesn't pass 40, then they go party grinding? :D
rufiangel 28th Apr 2016, 5:57 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
XD Yes, Jarvi-nii, that is probably what will have to happen! Either that, or ditch that weak link and go without him, lolol XD <3

Oh boy, testing time! :D
I'm really hyped to sea that~ >D
It'd be hilarious if Cain turned out to be the highest level somehow -snerk-

What a beautiful building~ :D

Aww Cain's face x3 he looks so... apprehensive x3
(That's literally my face these days though; I'm just starting all my final exams...)

He is most certainly apprehensive XD;;; and awww Kat! Good luck!! \(*>3<*)/ <333 You can do it!!

Cain didn't realize adventuring would come with TESTS!

But don't worry Cain...

*does Rob Schneider voice impersonation*

"You can do it!!!"

Ironic this story arc involving tests is going on just as college finals are happening.
rufiangel 28th Apr 2016, 6:00 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Not many adventurers do! XD; Well, to be fair, they only test you on what you should already know... ;)

And yes, so it would seem! @_@ I did not plan for that but... GOOD LUCK Y'ALLLLs <333

Cain general -40: not recommended to use cutlery and needs to have company hold his hand when using the bathroom.

rufiangel
LOL, Crestlinger! XD
Actually, it's really hard to use the bathroom with just one hand... >___>

That first panel looks amazing... O_O

Bet you're looking forward to drawing that again. XD
rufiangel 2nd May 2016, 7:00 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Lol D XD thanks so much! I'm really glad it looks alright since I did put quite a bit of time into it :'D

And yeaaaah let's put money towards betting I never draw it ever again... XDDD
Lukkai 28th Apr 2016, 12:04 PM edit delete reply
Lukkai
I can see how especially that first and last panel would have swallowed quite some of your time.

Also my bet: The current pecking order will be
- Kylie
- Michael
- Nemi
- Cain (screws up some tests out of sheer nervousity)
And Madou doesn't quite tell, except that he's high enough (ends up just between Michael and Kylie though).
rufiangel 2nd May 2016, 7:01 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
The first panel took some time, but the last panel didn't really. XD; The second-last panel kinda sorta, since any panels that have their borders 'broken' take slightly more time!

Also, reasonable bets! We'll find out eventually how close you are! ;)

I forgot to mention that the jewel piece on Kylie is absolutely rad!

Ah, thank you! <33 I'm glad you like it! X3 I want it to look like a sparkly opal-like crystally thing XD
dawndemonica 28th Apr 2016, 12:50 PM edit delete reply
Been a while since I posted something. I bet that everyone is over 50 on general and between 40 and 70 on skill.

Hi dawndemonica <33 always glad to have your comments!! :D
And those are decent bets! We'll see eventually how close you are! ;)

Trials based on what they do... soooo Cain's going to be tested on how well he messes up? ;-)

Now, now, KAM, play nice XD
(Though you're probably right)

Cain has a really good History or Religion or both, right? Maybe if the tests are about those stuff, he'll be fiiiiiine... then again, this is Cain XD (nah I have a good feeling, I actually have a little less confidence in Nemi, despite knowing Mercy will never allow her to fail XD)

The Jeweled Donut store, home of the sparkliest glazed donuts this side of Archaiea~
rufiangel 2nd May 2016, 7:05 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
All divisions test theory and practical knowledge, so no matter how strong Cain's book-smarts are, he'll still have to be tested on his field experience. XD; Likewise, no matter how great Nemi is at her five-fingered discounts, she's not very good at decoding or forgery.

Mmmm, jeweled doughnuts sound beautiful and delicious and I want one <333 ;3;*
