From the afterlife re-claimed big wooden desk of Victor Pride
Subj: Regarding the crow who spoke to me
3 days ago I became a millionaire from B&D. Today I killed my career with New World Ronin. Tomorrow is the 6th bday of B&D. Today is my re-birth.
It's always funner being born than it is dying! Nick Kelly is my name, and Victor Pride is my game. For many years I've played up my strengths, which are vast, and created a larger than life guy named Victor Pride.
But I get bored quickly. And I was bored over a year ago, I just waited too long. The fun is always in the building. I'm going to rebuild that other half, the half that I neglected, so I can be a human again. B&D was complete in December 2015. Totally complete and I knew it.
That's when I became a ghost, unsure of the next step. Until I just decided to kill that motherfucker with a shotgun so I can be free to write anything I want. I wrote New World Ronin as a training tool for the future.
I do not expect anyone to like it right away, it reads like a crazy man's notebook – because it is. That's why it won't be appreciated until after I'm dead. I always said that I wrote New World Ronin so that I could die, and that's what I did.
Victor Pride is dead (but his spirit and ghost will live on) and now I, the real motherfucker, can write about anything and everything. No more chains, baby. School's out.
I am going to share behind the scenes, warts and all. Just for fun! Just because I don't care about money anymore. I don't care about nothin'!
I'm really playing the game without a net. I can live in the real world now, I'm not stuck in that B&W world of Victor Pride.
I'm the man and you can call me what they all call me – Nick Kelly.
