Era: Dawn of the New Gods

by Lami the Sheep that eats Lions

Warning This fiction contains:
  • Gore
  • Profanity
  • Sexual Content
  • Traumatising content

Concise Synopsis:

This is a post-apocalyptic story about the origins of various powerful figures that appeared after the apocalypse event. During the apocalypse monsters appeared possessing powers and constitution beyond the limits of human understanding. They ravaged the world and brought down all governments.

The first part of the story follows Jade, a terrorist that was ravaging the world before the monsters arrived.

Dramatic Synopsis:

The New Gods, the most feared and revered beings on the planet. They are forces capable of absolute destruction and creation.

The Council of Branches

Hayley, the Living Lie (if that is her real name)

Chao Feng, the Prince of Stars

Lara, the Mother of Heroes

The Great City of Tver

Gog, the Ever Losing War

The Unkillable Freak

Dave, the Flow Demon

Avatari, (only the name is known)

Satoshi, the Gentle Hurricane

As Impactful as they are no one knew their origin, they are called the New Gods so there must be Old Gods. I and my collegues dedicated our lives to finding their origins only to find out that the beings we fear and adore were once like us, average, mortal and weak... at least most of them were.

*It is a sort of reverse RPG as no one knows anything either skills, abilities  or how the system works but they find out on their own or develop their own skills or abilites.

*The story has many protagonists and point of views but it paints a beatiful story of survival in a world of endless perils for both the humans and the monsters(some monsters are protagonists).

*There is a system but it is very limited (not overpowered) and treats everyone equally, monster or human. The system is very different from regular systems; no exp, levels and system items.

*The story is a world building story where overall, the world is the true main character.

drakan_glasses BE NICE! Fair critique is fair, but be respectful & follow the review rules. There will be no mercy.
Sort by:

I didn't know if I liked it on the first chapter but it got me hooked and it was nice then I fell off again at like 26 I'm pretty sure it will pick up again but oh well 

it feels like you had a vision of what you wanted and you got there a tad to fast. Personally I feel your concepts a bit intangible. Like I understood the system but I feel more detail into the design and logic behind the inventions would go a long way as I find it a bit odd a material can work as a glue and a explosive. Different blood maybe? Also your numbers got out of hand really quick 100,000 is a lot for a short amount of work. Well not compared to 8 billion but still that's a lot of dead people in one area makes it feel like humanity is kinda over.

anyway liked the idea of futuristic apocalypse liked the character backstory made me feel uncomfortable highly recommend making the entire thing something really hard to read but like in a good way. 

this is my first review so don't take my star rating to heart your gonna be my bace line from now on.

The system fantasy I've been waiting for

Reviewed at: Chapter 101: News

This story has a, from what I can tell, completely unique system with many interesting facets. Unlike many other system stories, the system does not randomly impart skills on our intrepid protagonists. No, if you want your amazing fantasy skill, your gonna have to risk your life day after day, week after week, and month after month. Things don't come easy in this world, and the cast is better for it. We can see how the societies develop around this setting as the story progresses.
