Greetings, everyone. First, let me preface by apologizing for doing this backwards. I shouldn't have deleted the story first, and then recover it just to post this. It might also be in bad taste making this announcement when the story's second anniversary is right around the corner, but what to do.

I'm sorry to inform everyone that Inheritor of Malevolence will not be updated any further. I have been mulling this for a couple of months now, and my various personal issues coupled with a lack of motivation led to this decision. I had been forcing myself to publish the latest chapters, and if I kept doing this out of obligation instead of enjoyment, the story's quality would surely suffer. As such, I decided to end it here.

I want to thank each and every one of you who supported this story and gave me useful feedback. I also want to apologize once again for not seeing this through to the end with all of you. There were so many things I wanted to write about, so much to tell about this world, but it's beyond me now. If anyone wishes to use characters and concepts from this story, or even pick it up and continue it on their own, feel free to do so.

Once again, thank you for the support over the past two years. Be well, and who knows? I might see you in another story down the line.
