So when is the episode 3 going to get back on its original meaning (note the title)? It is still good none the less, Dikiyoba's story is the of the best things I have read.

As soon as Dikiyoba gets back from the big guilt trip you all seem desperate to book Dikiyoba on. :P

It's your own fault, you know. What with all the chapters you piled on us in weeks prior it's no wonder we're complaining of withdrawal symptoms. You have us hopelessly addicted. ;)

Now's about the time you start charging for the next dose and watch that piggy bank grow.

But playing G4 would lengthen the time until we get the next chapter, and we can't have that. :(

If you guys are truly desperate to read something, there's a cotinuous story game going on over at Shadow Vale. It's how I've kept going without new chapters this past week.

It's not actuallyworth playing that game... It's not weird, or funny, or... anything good.

But you should go there for the nana parties and glorious BoA thingies. :)

It strikes despair in the deepest part of my heart that the nanaparty image is now an emoticon over there.

Bad news. Freewebs is acting up (and my most recent backup isn't new enough), so I can't access it to check who is alive or not. Is anyone else having problems? And are these the deleted people: Alorael, Ash Lael, Imban, Mysterious Man, Nikki?

The good news is this is problem number three with Dikiyoba's computer. Since bad things always come in threes, nothing else will happen. Right?

It's showing up free and clear on mine. Also, the deleted members are Alorael, Imban, Nikki, and Rakshasi. The dead members are Delicious Vlish, Kelandon, Tullegolar, Enraged Slith, Lazarus, Mysterious Man, Jewels, and Dintiradan. Hope that helps.

EDIT: Just checked the story itself. Unless Dintiradan died off-screen, he is still alive and well.

I'm dead?

*scratches head*

I don't remember reading that.

Or maybe it's that I just thought I'd be counted among the ones brought back in the raising spree?

I object...

Edit: My memory sucks. I didn't say a thing.

No. He got crushed by the Deth Ray when Kelandon was smashed into it. Unfortunately, it wasn't fatal, and I healed him. I'll get him later, though.

I'm out of time to mess with it, so here is the latest update (with broken paragraphs): Chapter 39: Tullegolar's Concluding Resolution. If you are desperate, read it now. If you can wait, go ahead and wait.

Dikiyoba.

Very nice. :)

Is this The End?

Not quite. I think there may be one more chapter to go.

Nice work as always, Dikiyoba. I'll update the front page shortly.

Sigh. Nalyd wasn't in it. Neither were the other new people. Nalyd won't be, either. Nalyd won't be in Episode 4, either. Nalyd will now go and sulk.

I think it isn't the best story in the hole world i think it is pretty enough as it is.
So Diki what new people are you introducing lately?
Is there going to have more episodes?
Is episode 3 the end?

Be careful. I still have that extra script in which you get killed twice in a painful and embarrassing way that also prevents any possibility of future resurrection. :P

Honestly, after three stories, I think Dikiyoba probably needs a break. I'd be fine with this being the end.

I still have one more chapter to go in this episode. I will get it out as soon as possible. (And figure out what is wrong with Freewebs as soon as possible.) However, I doubt that there will ever be Episode 4 in the forseeable future, mainly due to time constraints.

And, since we're on the subject of depressing reflection today, another reason I will not write Episode 4 is that I don't like the way it has been turned into a stick/carrot. Being included is not a reward for good behavior. Being excluded is not a punishment. There are many deserving people who did not appear in this or any episode, or who didn't get much screen time because of plot constraints, my forgetfulness, or me having troubles knowing what to do with the character. And I really resent the implications that I have to do something or include someone in my story.

That said, I still welcome suggestions, either in this thread or by PM. It may seem rather pointless at this stage in the story, but I still have one chapter to go and I will be revising the story to make it better before I call it done. If you think I haven't portrayed your character well enough, give me some suggestions. I'll use them if I can. (Nalyd, please don't say you wish to appear. I get it. You don't have to tell me ever again.)

The final reason is that Dikiyoba doesn't want to become one of those loser authors who produces sequels long after sequels should be produced. If you don't quite feel like you have had enough with three episodes, then Dikiyoba is on the right track. :P

One more chance for me to make it into the story. I hope I make it, I really do.

Mh, no episode 4. So no episodes -2, -1 and 0 either? Don't imitate George Lucas. :P

I'm getting an "end times" vibe from this forum by now. First Alec's topic, a few people leave, and now we start shutting down the ouroborotic (thanks, Thuryl) meme-machines...

Everything here seems to be shutting down. First the post counter, and now the story. This is not a good omen. It seems to be pointing to the ever more quickly coming downfall of Spidweb.
