Oh, my ...! :D It's over 11pm here, and I'm beat. I'll be back to read it ... if it's still up.

Who are 'they' who released it for free, by the way?

Welp, I've read it now ... and to repeat ... oh, my. :D

Absolutely top-notch. As the English upper-classes used to say: straight out of the top drawer, old bean. ;) I'm very curious about this story - yes ... very curious.

I looked up "Seelenfresser" on google, and couldn't find anything except the google translate - "soul eater". A witch? Gabriel is too "wise" to believe that all witches are 'evil'. So what is a "seelenfresser" - something worse than witches?

Hopefully this might be a spoiler to whet our appetites ... could a GK4 be in the offing? If there is, obviously it could take a few years. But maybe ...? What a bombshell THAT would be! :)

You forgot all that from when it was first released 5 years ago?

It may have been - I was just noticing that they announced it from the aforementioned post.

That said - since you mentioned it - I did find Spikey's post about it:
http://sierrahelp.com/forums/viewtopic. ... 028#p53028

Although that mentions only Chapter 1. I believe this is all three chapters now.

EDIT: Merge topics anyway. - Tawmis

Whoops - I didn't see it 5 years ago. :| Not sure where my head was then. Thanks to the magic of 24-hour noise known as TV news, I don't know what I was doing 5 weeks ago. :P

Sigh. I only watch 30 minutes of TV news in the morning, and I think even that's getting too much ...
