Your Membership: Cheaper and More Rewarding!

YOUR MEMBERSHIP: CHEAPER AND MORE REWARDING!

The True Meaning of LESS FOR MORE!

With the following announcement you will be reading in this post, you’ll feel like this Christmas will last the entire year!

You see, we plan on revamping our update scheme starting January for everyone’s benefit! I want to sincerely thank you all who have pledged and supported the series since the beginning. I’m constantly making efforts to make the membership worth it and have decided that the following changes would only benefit everyone!

As you know, two chapters a week is quite pushing my limits already and this reward has been reserved only for Celestes this entire time. I wanted to make a shot for three chapters a week, but my brain can’t quite handle the stress. I’m still quite unsure how to write speedily, as I realized I’ve been stumbling over many writer’s block towards the end of Cosmos. I’ve always put releasing quality chapters first and foremost and I have been constantly challenged in this regard over the past few months.

I’ve gone through this decision thoroughly and have debated with it for the past few weeks since I got the idea.

If you’re wondering why I’m doing this, it’s just that I thought it was pretty reasonable. This year has given me enough blessings. I just want to continue writing with a little money on the side. I’m quite contented.

WHAT ARE THE CHANGES ON OUR UPDATE SCHEME?

Please be reminded that these are just UPDATE SCHEMES. They do not represent ALL of the rewards you get for the tier.

CELESTES

CELESTES has had two chapters a week for a period of four weeks (one month) per round plus a guaranteed initial six chapters ahead of non-members. This means fourteen chapters at the first month and eight chapters a month onwards—a minimum 16,000 words a month. This will stay intact.

There will be, however, changes to the tier concerning price and membership. Guaranteed there will be no increase, just a decrease!

SENTINEL + COMMONER

Lastly, we have some good and bad news. But if you actually think about it, it’s just good news.

We are abolishing our COMMONER tier.

Just think that we made a massive discount for Sentinel and now Commoner is a thing of the past. Or that Commoner just upgraded to Sentinel with just the same price. Whatever you like.

Fact is, the NEW SENTINEL tier is 1$. It has the cheapness of a Commoner but the power of a Sentinel. And it’s worth 0.99$ Just 0.01$ cheaper than the original price.

All COMMONERS will now be Sentinels. Sentinels will also have a discount on their tier.

WE WILL HAVE TO DO SOME ADJUSTING THOUGH SO PLEASE BE WARNED AHEAD OF TIME

Before we rejoice for all the great changes coming to us by January, we will have to warn you of the necessary adjustments that we might need to make ahead!

The membership plugin we are using forbids change of prices for security protocol. That means that, even if we lower the price of the membership, if you have AUTOMATIC PAYMENTS enabled, which has now been made default to newly registered members since October, the account may continue charging you at the same rate.

You won’t have to do anything, though. The moment we start making changes on January, we will move you guys around (which might alert you of user activity through email notifications, but don’t panic). This will reset your account and disable automatic payments, making way for the new price list to settle in.

With automatic payments canceled, this will convert your account to a manual payment-type account, which means you will not be automatically debited for your monthly subscription. To enable this, you will have to go through a brief round of re-registering and reselecting, but fear not! We have a convenient way of paying for manual users.

All you have to do is:

  1. go to your ACCOUNT PAGE,
  2. click on MY PROFILE which will scroll you down to your profile information.
  3. You should see a MAKE PAYMENT option under your CURRENT SUBSCRIPTION which will also indicate your membership status.

But we will be giving away 10% off coupons for those who enable automatic payments, to give you guys some reason to do it!

PRICE CHANGES WILL BE EFFECTIVE STARTING DECEMBER 29 IN TIME FOR RENEWALS ON JANUARY.

I would like your feedback on these changes. Please comment your reaction below. Truly, I only hope for positive feedback. I will reply the soonest I can! =)

    1. All you have to do is cancel your membership on Patreon. You can then continue paying manually on the site. Should you want to enable Automatic Payments, like Patreon, we suggest waiting for the coupon code!

      1. Oh. Actually I transferred to website and upgraded to guard from commoner by selecting automatic payment. Paid again 5$. Will I get 1$ back as I already paid for this month. Also do I get any discount next month for selecting automatic payment?

  1. I usually buy the primordial common knight tier if I change it to Celeste will I be able to read it up to its latest chapter? I think it’s Chapter 87? Thank you!

    1. Hello,

      Unfortunately, we no longer accept new subscriptions into the Celeste tiers of Primordial and Original due to exclusivity. You can only enter Celeste Regular.

  2. Hi,

    I understand the reasons as to why you are asking us to move the pledges to your site. One of the reasons I haven’t moved is security concerns. Have the website designers or you spent some time thinking how you will safeguard the account details if you are going to automate the transactions?

    1. Hello!

      Not to worry. We have an SSL encryption enabled on the site which guards all incoming information and encrypts them before sending them to the web. Also, our checkout portals are offsite. We don’t directly accept card information. PayPal handles all the transactions on our behalf, which means that we don’t have your card details, only your email and account password.
