Follow Yuel and Lars, a chess prodigy and a basketball ace, as they form a duo of Support & Carry and aim for Classmancers’ pro scene!

Classmancers is a Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) which has become an official team sport in schools. Finally, Yuel has found a team sport which doesn’t have a fitness barrier and he can excel at. Believing it’s his calling, he dedicates all his free time to Classmancers.

However, his merciless tactics discourage others from playing and he soon realizes he’s the only one in class who takes the game seriously. Before long, he finds himself playing alone in the game’s toxic online community.

That’s until he meets Lars, a former basketball ace with godlike skills. With Yuel’s brain and Lars’s brawn, they form a terrifying duo as Support and Carry. Together, they must overcome their shortcomings and triumph over powerful rivals on their way to Classmancers’ pro scene.

This is a very experimental story idea for me because I couldn’t find any other stories which focused on Esports or MOBA in a similar way (if you know any, feel free to link them in the comments or PM me). Therefore, any input you can provide regarding the story will be greatly appreciated. I’m sure the story will have many flaws early on, but hopefully with your help I’ll figure out how to improve it along the way.

I plan to release this series in “volumes”, similarly to how light novels are released (each volume will have 50k+ words). I believe this is the best method for this series, since it’ll give me time to compile all the inputs before I move on to the next volume. There will probably be breaks between volumes, but I’ll try keeping them as short as possible.

The first volume is already finished and chapters will be released regularly. Sadly, between proofreading + editing chapters before release, writing new chapters for the next volume, working and studying – a weekly schedule is probably the best I can manage. I’ll try releasing the first couple of chapters faster, but I’m pretty sure it’ll become a weekly series afterwards.

For those who want to read a little ahead, I’m offering the option on my Patreon. You can read up to 3 chapters ahead and the offer isn’t be restricted by the breaks between volumes. In other words, once the current volume ends and there’s a break until the next volume, you’ll still be able to read up to 3 chapters ahead… from that next volume!


Shadowverse: How to Link Steam and iOS Accounts


This guide is obsolete because Shadowverse now allows to link Steam and iOS accounts via a code.


The Problem: Can’t link my Steam and iOS accounts.

I’ve recently started playing Shadowverse on Steam. It’s a collectible card game with many similarities to Hearthstone, but with its own Japanese style. Some people call it “Hearthstone with waifus”.

The game is a blast to play, so naturally I wanted to keep playing it on my iPhone as well. Only, I discovered a disheartening truth: the Steam account can’t be linked to the iOS account!  The feature existed in the past, but was suspended on 28/12/16.

[Web Novel] Clock Link: A Story of Magic and Murder – Sharp Review

This is a great web novel that I’ve recently come across on RoyalRoadLegends. You can find my full review here.

Clock Link may appear like a somewhat daunting mystery story at first glance, but I’m sure you’ll change your mind if you read the first few chapters; it reads a lot closer to a Light Novel than one may think. People who like Baccano!, Durarara!! or Fate/Zero will more than likely enjoy this story.

Original Light Novels vs. Baka-Tsuki

How many of you knew that Baka-Tsuki has a forum? How many of you knew that Baka-Tsuki hosts OLNs (Original Light Novels)?

Despite being a website for hosting translated Light Novels, Baka-Tsuki went out of their way to host Original Light Novels as well. These are English web novels, which strongly resemble translated LNs.

Sadly, the system they use for picking OLNs is (unintentionally) dysfunctional at the moment. You can read my Reddit post for an in-depth explanation about the topic.


TL;DR: OLNs need to get popular on the the Baka-Tsuki forum in order to be hosted… but the forum board is dead. Even high-rated and popular web novels like The Iron Teeth didn’t get a single reply on the forum.
