    He hasn't given out even a vague release date in months, so there's a possibility that it won't even be released this year. Though I am hoping it does get released this year.

    There was a fan made one for a while, but instead of embracing it they want to make their own. Tbf they probably do need some ban powers for an official discord, but I wouldn't expect anything more than a branch off of the echo chamber that is Facebook. At least it might not have all the "Facebook"ey posts about kids and cancer and stuff though

    I don't mind that stuff, its a credit for Aleron that he shares it, even if its a time drain. If he was more humble and haden't claimed the title of The father of american litrpg, i'd consider him a pretty good guy. As it is he is a good guy with an arrogant streak.

    the father of American litrpg is all marketing and brand recognition. He’s a self published author. He has to distinguish and elevate himself. I have yet to see him do anything overt to seem like an asshole, beyond the self titling. Yet he catches so much flak for it for no good reason than because people are whiny and have nothing better to do.

    I diden't say he was an asshole, I said he was a good guy with an arrogant streak and he is. Assholes don't care about other people.

    besides a few little known russian litrpg guys AK has done the most for the genre, he can be the Emperor of LitRPG for all I care.

    Yeah... One thing the prevalence of social media has done is tie people to their work...

    People are getting black listed.. canceled... and scrutinized for their political beliefs, thoughts, personality, looks, and every other imaginable characteristic.

    I've never met A-kong so I can't comment one-way or the other about his personality. However... I can say with complete certainty that I don't care.

    I love his writing so I don't care how he acts, who he votes for, or what he posts on his social media. I only care about how he writes.

    Not sure I agree exactly that he's the 'Father Of American LitRPG' but I will say it was brilliant marketing either way. He got a lot of flack from other LitRPG authors but that just stirred the pot and drew more attention to the genera as a whole. All press is good press, especially for an independent author who lives and dies by getting his name out there.
