As a reminder to those that found this story through either the Books page or EDK episode 3, this story is an intermission within the main Ex Dynamis Chaos storyline. You are in the right place and the next chapter after this is EDK episode 4, not AHoV #2.
Before you get out of hand let me explain. The next part of the webcomic is not Chapter 4 of Ex Dynamis Chaos, but Chapter 1 of A Hymn of Valor. There are several reasons for this, but most importantly it’s because of how closely these stories are tied to each other. A Hymn of Valor is the first story I have ever written and set up a lot of the framework of the world itself. But don’t worry, just because it was originally written a long time ago doesn’t mean I haven’t refined it recently from a more experienced adult perspective. You will see a chapter of this story after ever third chapter of Ex Dynamis Chaos, so I hope you enjoy the tale of the year 2001.
