Old Updates

May 11, 2008

Again, many apologies for taking so long. I had an extremely large fanfic entry from the contest that I'm still trying to finish formatting. But I got a part of it up and I've made my decision for the winners. You can find a link to it on the main page and I'll try to get up the rest of that last entry as soon as I can. All the contestants I will be contacting in the next few days about their prizes.
Also, we're starting year three of our anual Boys of Summer Art Challenge. The banner for it is on the main page. Same as usual. Get your pages and pencils ready for June 1st and make sure to get signed up.

March 15, 2008

Boy I'm slow. I'm still working on the entries for the contest that ended in February. I finished formatting one and it is up and I still have one much longer fic to get through. I'll try to do it soon. My apologies to all those who entered for having to wait this long.

January 19, 2008

Sorry for lack of updates and for delay of this announcement. I have been distracted by other things. But the fanfic contest deadline has been extended until Feb 14th, Valentines Day.

December 9, 2007

I updated two entries for the fanfic contest. Sorry you haven't heard from me for a while. I've been taking a break from Ronin Warriors lately. It happens every once in a while, I get tried, and then I come back. Please be patient with me until the fire returns.
The deadline for the contest is December 31st unless I get some complaints. So get those entries in.

    August 27, 2006

    I have a massive update for you today. As you might have noticed, the layout of the page has changed a bit. I'm probably going to keep monkeying with it for a while.
    Chapter sixteen of "Guardian Souls" is up plus a new chapter of the guest fic "Icy Desires". Then, there's new fanart in my gallery, the guest art gallery, and in the "Guardian Souls" section. Plus another short comic I drew in the doujinshi section. Lastly, links have been updated in both English and Japanese sections.

    August 10, 2006

    Have some new wallpapers up. And there's TWO new chapters of "One Flew Over the Robyn's Nest". Enjoy! Also, I'm going to start moving around my pics from the BOS challenge and get them in the places they should be. As I do so, the links will disappear from the archive. But no worries, the pictures will still be floating around elsewhere.

    August 1, 2006

    Rowen part 2 of the Ronin Special is up. I'm counting it as my last day of the BOS art challenge. Writing is a form of art. So there.

    July 4, 2006

    Chapter Fifteen of Guardian Souls is up. I also added a new section to the main menu. This one is called "Cosplay" that just features some Ronin cosplay pictures that were taken at a few conventions I went to. Soon I'm going to think about cleaning up the main menu so this list isn't so long. Maybe fix up the layout a bit. We'll see.

    July, 1 2006

    I'm cutting it close here. But the BOS art challenge has started and there is new art up and will continue to be from myself and other fine artists from now until the end of the month so drop in often. Links to everyone's archives can be found when you click that banner on the main page.

    June 24, 2006

    Chapter 14 of Guardian Souls is up. Woot! I also added another page of doujinshi covers to my "Swag" section. Lastly, I've been updating the list of participants for the Summer Art Challenge. If you're going to participate, please don't forget to get your archive up and send me the link before July 1st or no one's going to know you're doing it. :)

    June 11, 2006

    Lots of random stuff: New Ronin links in both English and Japanese. A new fanfic in the guest fanfic section. Rowen's first part of the Ronin Special fanfic is up. (If you visit ff.net, it's been up there for a few weeks). Lastly, I updated my doujinshi scans with some short stories of which I added my own dialogue to have them fit into my RW universe. Yes, sometimes I get bored.
    Almost forgot: There's a Ronin art challenge going on for July. Click on the banner on the main page if you want to participate

    May 21, 2006

    I was extremely board this Sunday afternoon so I made a new wallpaper. Plus, I added a new section for no real reason at all (yes, I was that board) So check out my swag page if you feel like it.

    May 14, 2006

    Believe it or not, there are TWO new fanfics up and both are written by me. (One was released sometime last week, but only those who visit my forum or look at ff.net were notified of it.) Also, I have changed my ff.net account so that you can leave comments without having to log in or get an ff.net accout. So for those who are too lazy to e-mail or just want to send comments anonymously can do that now for the fanfics that are currently up. And I do hope to have my ff.net account caught up with this page sometime soon.
    Also, there's some new fanfic based art up. In the "Guardian Souls" section there's new pics by me and also some guest art. And under "Vamps and Ronins" I've done a few pics for that fic, too.

    April 24, 2006

    There's a new chapter of "Guardian Souls" up. As well as two new fanfic based pics in my fanfic contest entries section. Lastly, there's a link on the main page to "Samurai Fanservice" which is a message board put together in order to help keep the dying Ronin fandom alive. We really want to get more people on it and make it a success so please come sign up and participate. Let the online world know you're still out there and you still love your old school!

    April 16, 2006

    Happy Easter! A new chapter of "One Flew Over the Robyn's Nest". Also, there's new fanart in the guest art gallery as well as fic based art for "Vamps and Ronins" right where the fic is.

    January 8, 2006

    I added to fanfic-based pics from the fanfic contest. You'll find them in the contest section next to the fics they're from. You guys who are still writing for this thing, better work fast. You only have a month left and I have only received one entry since I extended the deadline. Come on guys, a lot of people asked me to extend it. Don't let all that extra time go to waste!
    There's also a new chapter for "One Flew over the Robyn's Nest" (great fic if you haven't read it yet) and a new fanfic which, as always, is found at the bottom of the fanfic main page so you can find the new ones easy. ^.^

    September 7, 2005

    I added some new pics in my fanart gallery. There's some black and white AND I actually have some colored stuff. I'm also unsure what to do about the Fanfic contest. Please read the text in red on the main page to hear about it. I also added a guestbook a while ago at the bottom of the main page. Please use it. I want to know what you guys want from me when it comes to this page. And lastly, I added a counter. There will be Kiriban pics for those who watch the counter. So keep an eye on that from now on.

    July 31, 2005

    I added a new chapter of Guardian Souls and a few fanfic based sketches which can be found at the bottom of that same page where the fanfic is.

    July 30, 2005

    I have three new entries for the fic contest. The deadline is Monday by midnight. A few people have been confused on how to send entries. Sorry about that. You can send them to me at ghostofdawn@hotmail.com as an attachment. I can work with txt, doc, and word Perfect files. I also hope to give you guys a new chapter of Guardian Souls in the next few days so keep an eye out for that.

    July 11, 2005

    There are two new pages in the humor section and I also added a Doujinshi scans section on the main menu page. I'll be trying to update at least one more time before the contest deadline. Hopefully I'll be able to make it. *crosses fingers*

    July 4, 2005

    Sorry it took me so long to update. I have a new fic up for the contest and, because I've had quite a few people ask about it, I will be extending the deadline for the fic contest. The deadline is now August 1st. Work hard guys, you can do it! ^.^

    May 18, 2005

    Put a few new pics in my art gallery and two new pics in the guest art gallery. I've also been chatting with K from RWXL and we're now affiliates. How about that?

    May 16, 2005

    I have been working on a humor page for YEARS. Sadly, it is still not finished. However, I'm stick of waiting until it's all put together. I think I have at least enough to look at for now so enjoy and I hope it brings you a few laughs.

    May 6, 2005

    A new chapter of "Guardian Souls" is up along with some new fanfic based art for that chapter which will be found right below it.

They are so noted as "New!". Please let me know if you find any broken links anywhere. I've been uploading the page in large chunks. It's easy to miss something.

    April 28,2005
