Okay, so into the crux of the matter. There are some things I would like to announce at this time. Some have been mentioned before and some are new, so let's get into it;

1. Renaming: As I mentioned a while back, Guild Wars is being renamed into Boundless World soon. The current name is causing me a headache because various intellectuals feel like their grasp of copyright law is higher than I who come from a family of lawyers, as well as the suppression of the novel's popularity because the game is 100x more popular. 

The name Boundless World is good enough because it encapsulates the novel better than Guild Wars, or at least, in my mind it does. I'll be renaming it soon, I just haven't gotten down to it because I wanted to find time to inform you all properly, and this is good enough. 

2. Sexual content: As you have encountered while reading, there is explicit content in the novel. I do this because I used to make eroge as a game dev/writer before I found this site and decided to branch out. So far, it's been well-received and I'm glad for that. 

I know some of you have very wild fetishes and whatnot you hope to see, but I just have to disappoint you by saying that such thing are unlikely to occur. Especially those that go against WN's terms of conduct like incest and gore etc. 

Please stop asking for that in the comments, you guys almost got me in trouble when Loving Aunt came around. Some milder fetishes and stuff might happen, but everything mostly stays vanilla, because the R-18 is just an add-on to the story. 

3. Patreon: The patreon was created by me to use for the payment of Devils Advocate, the editor of this novel. Because of some difficulties with banks, paypal and whatnot due to my country of residence, it was easier to use the patreon to payout his monthly payment thanks to payoneer. 

However, I'll be closing down the patreon soon as I plan to use the basic WN income to pay him. I've found a way to… legally… pay Devils. Besides, its existence would conflict with the main purpose of these announcements. 

If you want to show your support for Boundless World, it is better to use Ko-fi. It comes directly to me without any bends or curves and its much better than patreon overall.

5. Release rate: This is something I can't make promises on as there are a lot of factors going into it. I have a general idea mapped out and I only write this novel, so I'm able to dedicate most of my time to it. 

However, there are moments where I am plagued by regrets over how the story began or am just unsure if a new plot occurrence will be received well. As such, I can lose motivation to write temporarily, and it has happened once or twice every month. 

6. Privilege: This is something I wanted to avoid for many reasons, including public dislike, release rate demands, value for money and more. However, WN have relaxed the terms of the system, so I plan to use it in the form of a test/experiment as well as a deterrence. 

That's it. No roundabout or complex mathematics or overly exaggerated amount. Just two humble chaps for 1 coin. 

Now onto the Q\u0026A session!


A. I have a good reason. There is a conscious push for privilege among authors because WN is having a really hard time dealing with piracy. DMCA's, warnings, takedowns, none of that works. We're all internet savvy so we know how it is. Piracy is something like a hydra, you cut one head and two pop up. However, the privilege system is so far the only thing they have to curb it significantly. 

Q. Hmph! Do you think you can convince me with such flowery words? 

A. Of course not, so I plan to explain in detail. 

A. Agreed, which is why I stayed away from it until now. Of course, this particular point is assuming that you're a paid reader (who uses coins). As for you handsome and beautiful dudes/dudettes using fast passes, it doesn't change much anyway. 

Q.Fine, I get it. Now, explain why I should bother paying 1 coin for this?
