IMPORTANT NOTE: Chapter 17 has been divided into three parts in order to keep the number of pages per chapter a bit more consistent.
In other words, chapters 17, 18 and 19 are nothing you haven't read yet. So don't be as surprised as Raph in the image up there when you have a feeling of déjà vu as you read chapters 18 and 19.

The only new elements that resulted from this clean-up are the two new cover pages, for chapters 17 and 19.

On a totally different note, I've been mildly sick since last weekend. I'm constantly exhausted, a bit feverish in the afternoon, yet I don't cough or sneeze and I'm not allergic to pollen.
If it's karma getting back at me, I don't know what I could've done wrong to deserve this!

Here is a teaser pic for the next chapter.

Guess what? Someone else will be illustrating this entire chapter. It's a nice pal of mine, a very talented artist.
I'm not saying who that is... ;)

MNT Gaiden Chapter 17 pages 109 to 112 are now up.

I'm talking about the real pages here, not the April's Fool ones. ;)
I removed the April's Fool pages for now. I'll just have to find a place on the site where I can archive them.

With this update, CHP17 is now complete. I plan to divide it into several parts, though. 112 pages for a single chapter is too much... it's more than 1/6 of this whole project's number of pages.

MNT Gaiden Chapter 17 pages 107 to 111 are now up.

I didn't have access to the internet from my main PC so for a short while, I could only upload new pages, but not announce them on the main page.

Things seem to work now, so here are a few pages!
Just make sure you read up to the last page.

MNT Gaiden Chapter 17 page 106 is now up.
Leo's profile is now up.
The Danish translation of MNT Gaiden Chapter 3 pages 2 to 6 is now up (thanks to Mattie!).

Working with a motherboard's graphic card isn't so bad after all. I was very well able to do all the updates I wanted tonight and not once has the PC lagged.
I guess the lags from yesterday were due to something else, like iTunes or some other power-hungry program.

My friend will be giving me his spare video card tomorrow though, so things will get better for me!
To my horror, it's an nVidia, just a notch above mine, which got toasted. However, like they say, beggars can't be choosers and while I'm not poor, I'm so cheap I'd be happy to use that instead of shelling out 200$ for another video card... for now.

I have my eyes on an ATI one, as it seems they are less likely to have hardware failures than the nVidia ones...

Just a reminder, if you want to really follow Gaiden's progress or any other news about what I'm doing in terms of artworks, make sure you follow me on Twitter. I don't necessarily have the tools I need to update my site everywhere I go, so the next best thing are my tweets. ;)
