Corona virus impact & updates

As the creator of Yscariot, I hoped to bring the news as soon as I can about all things related to my life’s work. However, the Novel Coronavirus is reportedly causing a shutdown on the city of Shanghai as well as other cities in China. Schools, gyms, and businesses have all shut down. Does it mean more time to work on the story? Not quite, but it brings work home and there is a large amount of time researching solutions to any issue that may arise if I am unable to continue living in China. We are strong, and I believe that China will rise from this issue.

As far as Yscariot itself is concerned, it will be some time when I’ll release new material in a timely fashion. I will release new material, but in a slower capacity than usual, unless there is a lot of [financial] support from a community to help the story become more self-sufficient as my online work hours have been reduced significantly and that means it will be harder to produce work.

The novel-based Issue 04: Dark Memory was originally intended for a Valentine’s Day release and will be tentatively moved to March 4th. New songs (jingles) were also created as filler songs and may be released on a special page in the future for customers.

Chapter 2: Wrath of Royals sales were incredibly low, and that won’t stop its progression, however it does influence at lot of the progression towards a new chapter’s completion. With this, I’ll be creating a prequel to the events of the Yscariot: Awakening verse titled Yscariot: Verse Double Zero.

Although things are quite slow, don’t stop supporting the movement! We need all the help we can get! Thank you!

Creator & Author Banned from Tencent’s WeChat

Author, Marcus Medina, banned from WeChat for an indefinite about of time.

For no reason stated by Tencent, the leader of the movement was banned indefinitely on their WeChat platform ON HIS BIRTHDAY!

While it definitely made for the worst birthday gift ever, the author of the Yscariot series had a great time celebrating his birthday with delicious Italian food and cake in Shanghai, China.

Back to the banning. A ban on the WeChat platform, which is primarily the main form of communication in China, means a return to the dark ages from a period of 90 days or more. You will not be able to communicate (send/receive messages) along with other things.

Here is the official statement from the author:

To all of my friends in China, if you are reading this, please know that I received the majority of your messages and I want to say thank you so much for the birthday wishes and greetings.

The Yscariot: Issue 01 comic book will probably experience a setback in physical sales due to the WeChat debacle, but I will work to find a way to communicate with you all to work something out.

Sorry for the trouble and hope to catch up with you all again.

Back Online! Made Some Music!?

That’s right! I have been doing too much lately and little of it had to do with Yscariot! I must apologize for the long delays! Working on this alone means I had a lot of juggling to do. Classes and seminars are done, but to enjoy the time off and complete the thesis in peace, a man such as myself need funds, and then those funds will be used to go on vacation.  Yes, every man [and woman] needs a little pampering, so go for it.
