Hello everyone! First off, a thank you to everyone who took the PGC Series Survey! Though most of it was April Fool's based, it was fun to do and see your answers. Happily, we did get the max 3 winners for the last question: guessing a number between 1-100. The answer was 12 (my favorite number ehehe).
And the prize shall be....3 bonus chapters of PGC for April! First one will be coming out this Sunday, so look forward to that!
Those of you impatient to read along can now go to chapter 113. I'll be posting survey results (with commentary) below.
