I've gotten back to work on Pets and Inferno. I haven't had the energy for the past few weeks, but during that time I've been brainstorming and planning things out. I'm not going to give an ETA on anything, but the updates should be ready very soon. I just need to implement XP and Level Points for pets, and just add in the new items for Inferno. When the updates go live, I will be resetting all characters and pets back to level 1, and clearing player inventories on Inferno - as I will be removing some weapons and armor in favor of new ones. I might also nerf the bots by a few points. We'll see how the new equipment goes.
As for Digital Dimension, it's taking me forever to finish chapter 3, for the same reason. I know what I want to do for the next few chapters, it's just a matter of actually sitting down and writing. The weather has improved, so I should be able to think more clearly.
Just so I won't have absolutely nothing to show for this update, I will release a list of some of the new equipment for Inferno. Levels are tentative. I am open to suggestions for flavor text and additional equipment.Spoiler
L5 Fancy Overalls
L9 Midge Robe
L13 Dark Armor
L1 Leather Gloves
L3 Old Claw
L6 Hyper Fist
L10 Heavy Gloves
L15 Aura Gloves
L20 Hard Knuckles
Weapons (adding new ones, reordering the levels)
L1 Wooden Dagger
L13 Fire Blade
L15 Icebrand Sword
L25 Kami Saber
(Will remain the same, maybe rearranging levels and buffs)

Ten years ago today, I launched Kitsune Paradise. It was something special because it was the first incarnation of this community to use an actual domain, rather than the DynDNS hostnames previously used. It was also my 18th birthday. I decided to launch it on that day for that reason, really. For those of you who want to see what we looked like way back in the day, when we used IPB 1.3, here is a screenshot
taken shortly before the upgrade to IPB 2.0.
We have come a long way since then, gone through several changes over the years. I won't bore you with the life story of the site. That can be read on our about page
. I'd just like to thank those of you who have stuck around for all this time. I really appreciate it.
I don't really have much prepared for this. Probably just a few status updates regarding things I've been working on. Progress has been a bit slow, mainly due to laziness and burnout. I still am trying to get back into the swing of things, especially now that summer's over and I can't use heat as an excuse.
I've been working on revamping the templates for Pets and Inferno, as you could see in the Screenshot Saturday
thread. Equipping items in Inferno will take fewer clicks, and the shop will be laid out differently. Pets will have an improved main section, and the "Click here to continue" screens will be removed. The battle system for Pets will soon be ready. When the updates go live, you will also be able to gain XP per post (though not so much in the Spam forum). I'm also finally going to add the new equipment to Inferno with the next update.
I've been meaning to show off the first part of ParaBound for a while. I've just been pretty lazy (what else is new?). That will be done very soon. Also, I am still trying to stream more regularly.
I am getting back to work on Digital Dimension, finishing the third chapter. I am also going to start up again on Kitsurian Chronicles, something I need to find a better name for, maybe. But yeah, I'll be redoing that soon.
And that's about it. I've got a couple other things in the works, but I'm not ready to show them off yet.

I've been feeling extremely burnt out this past week, which is the way things have been going lately. It keeps coming and going, and has been an endless cycle for a while. Between my typical procrastination and full time night job, nothing really gets done. Then I start feeling like shit, and even more nothing gets done. Though I'm sure we've already established this. I suck at getting anything accomplished, at all.
I will be streaming again this week. I don't know if I'll be playing Boshy, still might need a break from that for a while. To jump right into Boshy wouldn't be a good idea. I've got other games I could play, perhaps continuing with Fangame, or starting They Bleed Pixels. I also want to get back into running Dynamite Headdy. So there are three options for my after work/night off streams. For work nights, I'd like to play adventure games or RPG's, so I might start Gemini Rue or Resonance. EarthBound will be my RPG of choice.
There is still much to be done on the Terraria server, I am not too satisfied with how I built the spawn area, so I'd like to improve on that, with some help, of course. I'm still brainstorming ideas for equipment for Inferno, and slowly getting things done with Pets.
I really need to find a way to break this cycle so I can actually get shit done. Maybe it's a sign that I need to get out more often.

I'm slowly figuring out a good streaming schedule. There are some adjustments that need to be made, mostly (sigh) my sleep schedule, as well as projects on which I've been procrastinating for way too damn long (double sigh). However, I have found something that has been working well so far.
Some nights before work, if I manage to get up in time and have a cup of coffee, I'll stream an adventure or puzzle game - something simple, not too stressful. This will be around 8pm CDT. I say "some nights", because my work schedule isn't that consistent other than Tuesdays being my nights off. I also (try to) do a little work on .para//Bound before work. I'll stream for about an hour, stopping at 9pm CDT, so I can get ready for work.
After work, I might stream at around 8:30am CDT, depending on when I get home. It could be earlier than that. It's not going to be a daily thing, as I have errands and other projects to do on some days. My morning streams will consist of platformers - mainly IWBTG-type games. I also hope to get back to speedrunning Dynamite Headdy.
Tuesdays are consistently my off nights, and I still have yet to make the most out of those days. I haven't determined a time for streaming on Tuesdays, but I don't have a time limit as I do on work nights. I'll generally stream whatever I'm in the mood for then.
To be notified when I do stream, follow my Twitch channel
. I will also be posting on our twitter
and our Steam group
, so if you have an account on either one of those, keep your eyes on them as well. Eventually I will re-enable the calendar on here so I can use that to post my stream times.

My sleep schedule still sucks, and this past month I've been too worn out from work to do much of anything. Classic excuses to not do anything, I know. But honestly, I've been coming home not feeling like doing much else but putzing around on the internet and sleeping. Even my days off have been dedicated to sleep.
I've been working on ParaBound, bit by bit. I'll have something to show for it soon other than screenshots. I might show a demo during a stream or something. There are just a few more things that need to be finished before I do that.
Speaking of streams, yes, I still plan on streaming. I've got to come up with a schedule or something, and stick to it this time. I'm going to finish the Blackwell series, Pandora Directive, and Overseer. And maybe on
July 10, if it's possible, I will stream Tesla Effect.
The third chapter of Digital Dimension is still being worked on. As I've said, every day I've just felt drained. Every time I try to write, I just didn't have the energy for it.
That's all for now. But here, have a screenshot from ParaBound.
