The massive Holding The Line story is currently in its seventh year. Real life sometimes gets in the way, but the series is still on track. On a related note, the AceNet Central domain name (wc-aces.com) recently expired, and it's not clear what their next move is going to be. The site is safe, but there is no way to access it at the moment. Here is Raptor with the introduction to HTL chapter 212:
Hey all, Raptor here
You could be forgiven for wondering just what the heck has been going on with HTL these past few months. The bad news is that there have been a lot of big changes in my life that have left very little time for running HTL as I would have liked to. The good news is that, well, it's all been due to good news. I've been accepted for a PhD programme back home in New Zealand, something that I've been aiming towards for a while. What that meant was that I had to leave the UK, where I had having a working holiday for the past couple of years, leave my old job and flat, move back to New Zealand, get my things shipped over, etc. As you might imagine, the last few months have been hectic. I won't promise that things will get back to normal after this (I've made and broken that my promise before), but both my writers and I are committed to wrapping up HTL in the style it deserves. This particular story was mailed out on the Aces Mailing List a fortnight ago, but I had to wait till my regular PC arrived to get it uploaded. Future stories should be available on the List and the CIC simultaneously.
We kick our new set of chapters with a great story called "The Nemesis Gambit" written by Kevin "Leeloo" Tan. As you've seen in past chapters, the soldiers and agents of the Tanfen Corporation have been engaged in a bloody struggle with the Corporation's old enemy. There have been disturbing signs that the latest surge in bloodshed isn't just a continuation of the centuries old blood feud with Porhen, however. This story picks up from there. Please send any and all comments to Kevin at eva_ayanami_rei (at) hotmail.com, not to me.
