Oh my god Jimcloud, now I'm confused entirely about the state of the Nuzlocke.

poor amelia - what is wrong with her mum sending a kid who doesn't know anything into the wild this is too memey for this. one right heartless bastard aye she is.

Pardon me I'm just going to go slap some sense into Amelia's mom because NO YOU DO NOT DO THAT TO YOUR KID

All that aside, fantastic content so far. Keep it up!

Hey, everyone! First of, thank you all again for the comments! I really do apologize for the delay in posting parts 3 and 4. There were some real life snafus that needed to be addressed before this could go live. However, that's all dealt with, so you can enjoy two updates today. We’ll also be moving the next update to Saturday, so y’all have enough time to read these two. But don’t worry, next week, we’ll resume our normal schedule.

Just to address something in the comments, no one fainted or died in the Jackson fight in game. But the decision for the story was for Amelia to lose to Jackson to highlight her rookie experience against Jackson's battling skills. Don't worry, Amelia and her team are all alive and kicking! For now...

Anyway, enjoy!

And that's how we're depicting the catch oh my god :DDD

moist is one of the few words I want to write in a funky accent, but there are literally no ways to make it look sillier in text. help.

participants can comment too right?

but yeah this is my first time reading either update and aaaaaaaaaa theyre both so perfect <3

first of all thank christ rev did a musical update, westward would not have been complete without one of revs famous musical updates. the fight was so dynamic-looking and klay and kareem were so fluffy-looking and brock was so hot-looking...the whole thing was really great.

as for vents update I kinda forgot what was suppose to go down in this section and I am SHOOK. magic's introduction was so much funnier than I could imagine (top ten stupidest things: #10-1, this) and that goddamn raticate was so much scarier than I could imagine! theres so much body horror in that fight, what with the teeth and the neck...yeesh ;^;

whats gonna happen next?!

Nice update. Loving the story so far.

Hey, I just realized something. Since the story is freely taking a bunch of liberties with FRLG’s scenario, does that mean there could be OCs added into the story? That could be worth a try.
This post doesn't actually exist. You're really just dreaming.

thanks for reading so far! it took a lot of time and effort to put all of this together

to answer the question; there aren't any OCs added to this story and this is essentially completed already behind the scenes and whatnot.

Crap, I missed the previous update - so heres one for everybody!

@Update 3 - Revenant, your style of drawing is incredibly realistic and the song was really appropriate! stupid player no vine whip spam here or what

@Update 4 - Crash landing Clefairy - Magic's introduction is the best character intro I have seen so far - Magic has literally fallen out of the sky - Aasmaan Se Gira Khajoor Mein Atka, this proverb in hindi is rather appropriate, as Magic is now a part of rookie and unstable team lol - and the run ending raticate took another life.

@Update 5 - WOAH BULLET CAUGHT AN ABRA CONGRATS and that was a very condensed update though - captures and gym battle, but Amelia is getting confident and I liek that.

and i say go go GO
AAAAAAAAA I'm loving this! Collaborative nuzlockes are always a ton of fun and WESTWARD ramps it up to the extreme. I kinda sorta wished I knew about this earlier so I could've signed up but I'm pretty awful with schedules/deadlines as is. Based on how this reads I'm assuming everybody follows a rubric (e.g. Amelia = anxious newb, Leslie = enthusiastic nerd) and are prompted with "sections" of the story, like how 1.2's about getting Bulbasaur and 1.3's the first rival battle. It's a little weird when things go from silly to serious out of nowhere between different authors - like when a goofy Moltres going "SCRAAAH!" and dropping fireballs becomes a traumatic event it's a little hard to take it seriously - this type of run is gonna be a little more lighthearted by nature. Sometimes it feels like I'm jumping between parallel universes and that's kind of amazing.

Also, I really like Magic. Clefairy is a special angel and with all the hardships/arguing the team's been going through it's refreshing to see a happy-go-lucky character. :fairytype: I guess she'll have to do now that my formerly favourite character's been disposed of.

I'll try to keep up with this. Great work, everyone! :krn:

EDIT: Oh, they have an Abra now. And I guess he'll be my new new favourite. Damn, this is going by fast.

There's definitely a different approach between authors per part. We did have most of the essential character qualities hammered out before we started working, and the in-game notes for us to incorporate as well. But yeah, each author has their distinct style, and I think that's what makes Westward a very dynamic -and fun- project to read. And we're very happy you all think so as well!

Anyway, I know it's just been a day-ish since the last update but we're going back to the regular update, which means another update coming at you!

Before we get on with the update, I actually wanted to talk about something concerning the project. If you're going to orchestrate a huge community project like this, there's definitely going to be some issues. One of the issues that we encountered, which was a big reason for the delay, was a lot of people who had to leave the project for one reason or another. So I'd just like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the people who boldly stepped in to help fill the holes. Without you, this project may not have been completed. <3

With that, here's another individual update from the screenshot czar, GoGoGogoat!

thanks for trading holmes away guys, I always liked that option the best!

jesus though, Christina. Don't except to be instantly forgiven even if you do survive (I 90% believe she will simply because it does seem like she's about to die, y'know, the good old reverse psychology)...

Poor Magic though ;_;

On a more positive note, Steven! Mischievous psychics are the best and I still like him lots.

People who participate in this project are allowed to comment, right

So I mostly kept away from the screenshot and comic updates so many of the last few have been such pleasant surprises! I really like the effort everyone's been putting in so far~
