Five, Twenty-three, and Twenty-five Years Owen’s Collection Chapter 3.3: Meeting the Spiri Raians – Spirits Today 1

Azhure: So basically, the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (Kominfo as the abbreviation in our language) of my country, Indonesia, for some reason decided to create a new regulation mandating websites, web applications, and anything providing service over the internet considered as ‘electronic system operators’ (abbreviated to PSE in Indonesian) to register themselves on a list or else they’ll get banned after the deadline.

Azhure: From what I’ve read, the regulation was made back in 2020 but it seems the ministry decided to enforce it this year. I haven’t researched it too deeply, so I might be wrong – try to find it out yourself though you may need translations if you don’t know Bahasa Indonesia.

Azhure: But long story short, Paypal, Yahoo, Epic Games, Steam, Dota 2, Counter Strike, and Origin got banned just because they’re not on the list, screwing a lot of people.

Azhure: Well, the Paypal ban is the one I want to talk about. My Ko-Fi account’s donations go straight to my Paypal account which I’m pretty sure you get the idea of it. The good news is when I logged into SociaBuzz, it got a new update saying it now supports local payment methods of over 50 countries and also global payment methods which includes Paypal, ironically.

Azhure: Actually, the update only mentions the local payments, so the global payments might have always been there – I only had my account for less than a month by the time this was written. But basically, it means I no longer need my Ko-Fi account anymore so I’m turning off payments from it.

Azhure: So, all donations can be sent through one place which is my SociaBuzz page from now on and I appreciate any support you give me for my work. Try checking the list of payment methods the site supports, and thank you again for any donations you can give me.

Azhure: By the time this sub-chapter is uploaded, the ban on Paypal has already been lifted along with a few other sites. Again, I don’t need my Ko-Fi page anymore since SociaBuzz can accept payments from overseas. Frankly, I don’t even know how am I supposed to transfer money from Paypal to my bank account in Indonesia.

Azhure: Anyway, thank you, and enjoy the next lore dump on Spiri Raia. (more…)

Five, Twenty-three, and Twenty-five Years Owen’s Collection Chapter 3.2: Meeting the Spiri Raians – History of the Spirits

Voice: Gee! What took you so long this time!?

Azhure: A combination of being on a trip after uploading the last sub-chapter, my writing sessions getting interrupted, helping with my dad’s job (designing phtml files that are used to print pdf reports on the web along with migrating psql databases), going to the dentist, my parents looking for a car for me to drive to college now that online classes are over, and just burning out.

Voice: Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! What!?

Azhure: Oh, and I also took my time reading previous chapters as these next few sub-chapters are summarizing the lore of Spiri Raia thus far. Hopefully, I didn’t get anything wrong. This sub-chapter is about the history of how spirits came to be in one go, as well as what happened after the cliffhanger in the previous sub-chapter. Hopefully, I don’t miss anything. Enjoy.

Voice: By the way, read the note after this sub-chapter! It’s really important!

(Lost Chapter) Alicia Chapter 11: The Price of Loyal Maneg and More Court Wizards

A lavish room

Tattered

A high-quality desk

Rotated 90 degrees, destroyed

An old man in noble-like clothing

A husk without its life

Beside, a robed one covered in the same shade as the earth with blood splattered over it

A little boy, crying

The robed one approached the little crying boy

It spoke

“Do you want revenge?”

The crying little boy is an angry little boy

The angry little boy nods

“I won’t let you.”

SLASH

The dreamer woke up. Dream forgotten.
