Hey, thanks!Gods this is amazing... Please carry it on!
I'd also ask if I could take what you've done so far and carry on the whole hardmode part on my own (and changing some things and adding some extra details here and there) (giving you full credit for it, obviously) and let you see what it's like, but I doubt you'd let me XD :/
Also, are you going to add the Slime Staff any time? Have Adam say something like "That slime dropped a Slime Staff. Like my (Hornet) Staff, you can summon a minion, but, as the name suggests, it summons slimes that will attack your enemies. Apparently it's a very rare item, only given to the lucky or blessed" or something (I don't know).
But seriously though, this is absolutely amazing!!!!!!! (and normally, I don't use more than one exclamation mark, so feel lucky )
And I would let you carry this story for me, but I have to decline for 2 reasons
1: The story is the prequel to the story of my OC (see avatar) and I need it to build a certain way to introduce him for my actual "book"
This is just a build up/practice for that book.
2: I've put a ton of work into this already, and you will not believe the plot twists I have planned, so as soon as I find more time....
And, no, the slime staff won't make an appearance unfortunately
