Not to spoil much in the post, I'd say the raid chapter of the novel was incredibly well executed as far as a game raiding can be put in words of a novel. The aspects are really well done and any of you who knows raiding will surely find several points you're familiar with in there.
For the further news and announcements, I'm kinda busy so it'll take a bit longer for epilogue and afterword to come. Yes, these two will come together. Mind, that epilogue is incredibly long (about 70% size of this chapter), so it's an above-average size chapter for this volume.
Remember to support the author and such, the books only continue thanks to their supporters!
