I'm sad to report that after reviewing my finances, I had to shut off my FFXI subscription for a couple months. I don't like doing this any more than you like reading it, but it had to be done. I thought I could get a chapter out in time, but the grind was taking longer than I anticipated.
It's not just FFXI, I had to cancel a bunch of other things I was trying to stretch out as well. Even the website is on borrowed time because of it.
The Adventurer's Journal will come back, don't worry about it, but I don't think it'll return until mid to late January, optimstically. I'll make a post about it when it does.
I deeply apologize to readers for this since I know you were looking forward to Miirah's latest chapter. I can only hope the chapters out now will suffice for you. In the meantime, I'll keep focus on getting Demo version 0.3 out before Christmas. I don't promise this, but it's my goal.
