Stuff I post about:
-I’ve been playing a game called Elsword lately and it’s a really fun game. I’d like to write stuff about this game and would like to promote Elsword as much as possible so it gets a larger playerbase that it deserves.
-I do many Korean translations regarding Elsword as well. Because it is originally a Korean game, there is a lot of media content for the game that our North American Elsword players cannot understand. Since I can speak and write Korean, I try to translate various interesting Korean Elsword contents to share with the North American Elsword community.
-I’ve also been keeping up with the various anime as well, I’d like to write comments and review about them if I get a chance
-People are free to take my translations and translate them into other languages. Just give proper credits wherever they are due. (Although I recommend translating stuff directly from Korean instead. The meaning starts changing pretty quickly when text goes through multiple filters. Like that telephone game)
😀 Let’s see if I won’t be lazy with blogging this time around.
I haven’t been posting anything on this blog for a long time now. Honestly, there wasn’t much to post here after Time Trouble translations. It’s not like there was any other Elsword novels or anything.
Anyways, I’ve heard from somebody that creative writing is a beneficial hobby to get into so I thought I’d try it.
The following is an Elsword side-story that’s been in the back of my mind since couple years ago but I never got to write it because…. procrastination.
I haven’t actually wrote anything creative since high-school days and my writing skills most likely haven’t improved much since then. However, instead of thinking about millions of the excuses telling myself why I shouldn’t write, I think it’s better to just shut out all the excuses and start writing.
So I took some time and wrote a tiny portion of this side-story.
It would be nice if I could draw too. It will be nice to have some character arts to help with visualizing. But that kind of skill might even take longer for me to develop.
As for the timeline of when prologue A,B,C takes place, I hope I made everything apparent enough that people who are familiar with Elsword’s lore can guess without explanation.
One of the main illustrator Closers(& Tree of Savior) was found to have been supporter of extreme feminist ideals. Players demanded they didn’t want to see that illustrator’s works in game. Nexon/Naddic decides to keep the illustrator and illustrations. Players abandon ship. Most of them moving to Soul Worker.
But not too long after Soul Worker also had similar issue. Soul Worker management responded by deciding to remove all the affected illustrations and went even further by holding a welcome event for all new/returning players. This raised the evaluation of Soul Worker management and made the game incredibly popular over the course of couple days. This is quite a miracle for Soul Worker as some inside sources say KR server was looking at end of service in 2018.
Old Soul Worker players responded to all the new players by kindly giving them items and helping them start out. This also increased Soul Workers evaluation.
