Whats new in Liminal Chronicles?
Check out the new articles, stories, site updates, etc!
Finished off the Book 1 related articles (*I think*) with Shogun and Shogunate
Razor Vine, Umeji Hideki, last week created blocks to show which manuscripts and stories a character and species are in, and summary blocks for manuscripts and stories (Will display these on Hacks and Help in the future)
Lots of worldbuilding for World Ember. New articles posted at World Ember 2020
Continued first draft of Guardian (book 2) for NaNoWriMo
Wrote the Dark Harvest Challenge Article - Full Moon Wild Boar Hunt that details the harvest of the creatures that terrorize the Nonogawa River Valley
Finished Yoshirou the messenger
Started Inktober 2020. Art will likely be used for future articles. But also am posting high-res versions for sale
Finished drawing and added character art for Sekiguchi Yuu
As I rep for book 2 / NaNoWriMo, I am working out the characters we'll see. One of the first new ones we will meet is Date Miwa
Story in article form for the Alliance Challenge. Nonogawa River Valley Post Occupation Truce - tells of a dispute between the spirit folk (kitsune, tanuki, etc) and Nonogawa Valley farmers in post occupation Japan. We meet a new character in this one and get hints of another.
Caught up with prompts. Articles completed for this world include: Satou's Dojo + Envoys
Got the URL forwarding to work! So this world can be accessed and navigated via liminalchronicles.com
Added better portraits for modern characters that didn't have commissioned work
Added more to the subscriber secret - Nakamura's thoughts on Umeji Tatsuya
Simplified the homepage with a clearer direction for the reader. Moved most recent updates to excerpt in Updates Article - that show in the article block on the homepage
Nonogawa map updated with easy to read icons for location types
Fixed a bug when hovering over the book covers in Chrome
Simplified the header bar. Mapped liminalchronicles.com to my world.
Revamped my author site, amywintersvoss.com, to act as a hub and point to my WA pages.
Small CSS mod to make jump links jump and still show the header
Modified the updates page and statblock so I can have a way of informing followers of what's new on updated pages and have that info on my world home page. So when I update articles, I'll notify with this page and the top listing will have the news on the update. Then my lovely readers won't have to hunt through the whole page for whatever might ahve updated. Uffdah. (Yes, yes, I know this will be in the communities pages when that goes live. But this has bugged me from the beginning!)
Updated Kitsune to have team Nakamura secret + a few factoids extracted from myths about rarity and gender numbers
TaniMart updated with team secrets.
Added character art from the cover to each of the main chars. Added mockup of book to books catagory and main page.
Setup the templates for the team secrets and 'tag lists' for the articles for each team. Non-developer speak = If you sign up for a team you'll see a list of articles with that tag on the world home page. Those articles have team secrets! Each team's secrets are a different color so they are easy to tell who's are who's. (Incase you sign up for more than 1 team.)
NEW Self assigned 'team' groups. Will you join Team Umeji or Team Nakamura? This is in preparation for the community pages and to show you secrets from each character's point of view. (You can join both! And if there's requests, we'll have more teams.)
Audio is available for Chou Becomes Ohno-chan's Pet. + I'll be changing all the side stories and audio to be free and simplifying the subscription system.
Rise bookcover is officialy In Progress! Woot! And Beta Raders will have feedback by 3/6 - so I can work on the final edits then
Added a listing of other major characters near the main chars for easy navigation for readers
Simplified front page.

Added a clickable secret to Umeji Tatsuya. Sorted all the secrets into subscriber and author only categories and pasted the new ones into the articles. Added support box in global article content and made it smaller and the charcoal box version to stand out. Moved story in Chou Becomes Ohno-chan's Pet out of the document view and into the main body of the article.
Ibaraki Douji researched and added. Man I missed writing articles each day.

Shikigami knocked out a todo item with Inktober day 26’s post.
Added Ki Depletion for Inktober day 24.

Updated Inari Ookami to be a proper article for Inktober day 23.
Reworking categories to be book and "world" based instead of an info dump on the front page. Book category + book images created.

Inktober day 17 - Tattoos.
Added Date Sari for Inktober Day 15 and gave Nonogawa more details for Inktober day 16. Updated dictionary with ryokan, yukata, raku ware, and obon. Changed header font, the old one would outline the 'N' only - looked weird. Finally found a replacement I liked.
Tweaking my character template. Used it for Rin as a test and Inktober day 14.
Ch 26 1st draft edits complete. Moved Oni Tech Treatise to it's own document and updated it for Inktober day 13.

Inktober day 10 - Ki. (Have needed to define this for a while, since it's the basis for magic in LC.)

Created Inktober 2019 to track my progress for the event and have a record afterward for when I move articles under the correct categories.
Created Chou with art.
Inner Sanctum Birthday! Wrangled tags on all articles.
Created Sakamoto Ryouma for the Good Politicians competition. He was a real person, but fictional accounts of him will show up in my book.
Added animation to Kotodama (under Manifestation). Continued a bit of work on the article.
Added the book/series purpose. Added character profile pictures for the Meet the MCs, even though they are temporary until I get the commissioned works. Ademal was right - it looks better with the images there.
Changed world row (meet the chars, book progress etc) to Bootstrap columns. This allows for much cleaner code and fewer container classes. YES!!!!
Added playlists. Put the boxes I want to be featured prominently into the new full-width row. Fixed follower info box text size. Put tag category buttons in containers when clicked it only moves that column. Removed tag/spoiler bg color - so when you click the tag cloud buttons, they open and the content blends w/ rest of page
Fixed TOC icons to be the clouds again. Changed codex/atlas/chronicles non selected bg to be like my transparent grey boxes.
Converted Updates to statblock (so don't have to hunt through code to make update note), Tag Cloud (statblock - for the same reason), Book Progress moved to statblock (same reason)
Book progress updates. Info box trio: Meet the Main Chars, Tags (cloud coming soon), Updates Box
