Katana as option seems a little confusing, the traditional Chinese weapons, despite being very ancient were very diverse and with specific uses for each occasion and purpose, but more importantly the Katana is a Japanese symbol. I wonder how much fitting (mostly according to the world building) it would be for the Chinese block to be using a Katana, especially because there is also the UK having historically another set of swords. So I simply wanted to mention that the claymore, the jian (one of the most ancient type of Chinese sword) and qiang (spear) might be interesting alternatives to the katana for an assassin from the Chinese-UK block.

@Tsumi don’t touch the Katana! I love the Katana :rofl:

@Tsumi
This might be more an issue with my writing. The beginning is meant to be from the UEG/Imperial side rather then the Commonwealth to setup what possible future foe you might deal with. Though I love the Jian and I am in fact adding it into the story just because of you. <3

Woke up this morning to see a new WIP from one of my top 5 authors :heart: Had the intention to make myself a coffee before reading…that cup is STILL sat empty, I just couldn’t resist instantly reading it and didn’t stop until the end :rofl: I knew it’d be good but holy crap it was brilliant :relaxed: I adore Avery’s personality in every sense especially when he stepped in to protect my MC when she was getting bullied (I love the protective type don’t judge me :wink:) Wren I like because who doesn’t like the strong silent type especially when they’re also a badass?! The only spelling error I noticed was when choosing the clothing option, it says ‘cloths’ instead of ‘clothes’ but that’s literally it :slightly_smiling_face: Thank you so much author for the fantastic work as always and make sure you’re taking care of yourself :kissing_heart:

Just finished and… wow, I don’t know really what to say, because what I just read was fucking awesome. The last scene is still giving me a Nice adrenaline pump, I literally couldn’t stay still while reading it.

And Avery and Wren are both so much adorable, each one in their own way. It’s going to be so hard to choose between them. I’m going to put my MC in danger for these two all the way, because I’m playing a reckless MC trying to save her friends, and loving it!

Also pet raven named Edgar :face_holding_back_tears: :black_heart:
