Overwatch - or what is left of it - is at war with the Gods of Oasis. Russia is in a parallel war with itself, Katya Volskaya's government against the popular uprising led by the Aleksandra Zaryanova, the Goddess of Russia. As winter set in, Zarya's March to Moscow slowed to a crawl, held, waiting for a change in the weather.


But now, it is spring - a slippery thing, in Russia, but still inevitable - and the time for waiting is over.

that is... a lot of words

The Arc of Conflict is around 130,000 words.

And it's a direct continuation from the end of The Arc of Ascension, which was around 91,500 words.

Together, they tell the story of the rise of the gods, and that is right about a quarter-million-word story being wrapped up.

jfc, I wonder when it'll set in

(Of Gods and Monsters - not counting anything already written from The Arc of Dominion, next - is around 340,000 words. Will it make half a million? I don't think so. But maybe.)
