With this climactic battle, we wistfully say goodbye to lf03. I hope you’ll agree the final showdown was worth the wait. Plus, cool poster!
Depicting what is a largely auditory experience in text is not easy. Half the job is making sure you slather it enough wildly exaggerated descriptive awesomeness that it imparts the sense of excitement onto the reader. The other half is making sure each song has a functional ‘hook’, a mechanical means of explaining why the song is working so well. All four of the songs here have their own gameplay twists and turns, so to speak. Hopefully it works for y’all.
I MIGHT be skipping the Sunday update, while I gear up for the penultimate Second Age story. This one involves Scout, Susie, and a trip to Los Angeles… and I’m considering writing it in a very different style than anything you’ve seen so far, just because I can. I have no idea if it’ll work as what I’m designing it to be, but at the least it should be satisfying to read. You’ll see.
Feedback on this final update and the chapter as a whole is most welcome. It’s clocking in at 180k of text, the largest anachronauts story to date. CAN YOU DIG IT?!
