Anthony has been reborn! Placed into the remarkable game-like world of Pangera.
However, something seems a little off. What's with these skills? Bite? Dig?
I've been reborn as a WHAT?!
Follow Anthony as he attempts to adjust to his new life, to survive and grow in his new Dungeon home!
I spent most of my life trying to get by with whatever happiness I could, that included alcohol, food, and porn.
My death was unpleasant and humiliating. However, death is something we all need to go through. A bit like a proctology exam; necessary but never anything one wants to go through while it's happening.
However, death was supposed to be the end of it. Either way, the pain, suffering, and failures were supposed to be over. I was supposed to wink out, or perhaps take a trip to a lovely afterlife!
No, I ended up as a small stone, strapped to a table, while a pimple-faced teenager rubbed my facets and told me how 'lovely' I was. Last time I checked, birth wasn't supposed to be as embarrassing as death!
Life as a dungeon core isn't all bad. I like watching lizard love triangles and snooping on militaristic dwarves; though there is that issue where I'm trying to free myself from the entanglements of the Gods....ok, yeah that last one is a bit of a problem.
A dungeon core story about a man that caused a massive change in his world. Will the same thing happen again in a new world? Read and see how much trouble he can get into.
Official 2019 Release schedule: Monday, Wednesday, Friday
When mysterious portals start opening up around the world at large events, swallowing everybody, you’d think that would warrant some kind of danger pay when you have to sell hotdogs at a Comic Con, right? ‘No, of course not; what are the odds of that happening here, out of all the big events in the world?’
Well, Emma was always pretty good at beating the odds when it came to shitty luck.
Now she’s stuck in a strange dimension, where the normal rules don’t seem to apply, together with a costumed crowd who seem strangely happy about this whole thing.
At least, until the first people start dying.
When Caden dies in a car crash he is put in a dungeon core in another world. The problem with that? He still has a conscience, but the original dungeon core is still there in his mind, and it doesn't...
Of course, other people add their own issues:
Two human nations gain access to the dungeon and are not particularly pleased to share.
A sentient plant race claims the dungeon as sacred ground.
And, amidst the chaos, teams of adventurers just want to make a living.
The world is a Dungeon. The Dungeon Core shattered long years ago in an event called the Splintering. The shards of the Core scattered across the world. The large ones formed mini Dungeons of their own. The smaller ones turned into Skill Shards.
The inhabitants of the world can fuse with Skill Shards to get skills. Duh. But there is a catch: each skill shard when fused with its owner requires the owner to eat certain magic rich foods in order to grow and improve.
That's where the Dungeon Chefs come in.
Our MC travels back in time from the future and uses his knowledge to free humanity from the oppression of the other races.
I used to be a healthy, young guy with a normal life - I had a career planned in professional soccer, a girlfriend, lots of hobbies, and loads of fun. Until the accident. Which changed my life.
A few years later I had adjusted to my new reality, adjusted to being in a wheelchair, adjusted to having someone take care of me 24/7. And then the world changed. Old people and kids did not make it. And neither was I supposed to make it. But never count me out. If anything, I am tenacious.
This new world was different. People had mana. And there were monsters. And technology did not work any longer.
And what about me? I had mana as well. Silver mana. Which no one else seemed to have. Problem was, I did not know what to do with it. Until I really needed to. And then it changed my life, for the better this time. I hoped.
Author's note: I am not a native speaker and this is my first story ever. So if you have helpful comments or notice phrases/wording that seem out of place, let me know.
This may be a story for those that:
-enjoy a slower build-up to cool and powerful abilities
-like to have some background/world/magic system information slowly incorporated into the story (a bit more initially, somewhat less later)
-enjoy a character that is introspective at times, perhaps has moral thoughts/considerations, occasionally does not act very heroically or uber-smart (just like a normal, albeit smart dude).
- there is some gore, but not extensive.
- don't need immediate magic solving all issues... the MC is decent/good with weapons and will heavily rely on that for the first 200-300 pages at least.
After 100,000 years journeying across space after escaping Earth, life resumes for the Colonists of the Ark on the Monsalle Station. Life, however, never stopped for the people of the Phoenix Clan, back on Earth. With the Ice Age over, two civilizations, separated by light years and millennia rebuild what's left of humanity.
An Oath held until final breath, A doorway that brings only death.
Levi, a Royal Knight, is commanded to be a sacrifice so that the King may flee the Palace alive and dies shortly afterwards. But in doing so, he becomes something... More.

Garth Daniels is a down on his luck handyman in a quiet little town in the middle of America when our universe is co-opted into a war between an unstoppable race of reality-hopping monsters that feeds on the flesh of living creatures, and a conglomeration of thousands of realities, nested inside each other like a matroska doll.
We're the new layer.
These monsters, the Kipling, can only be defeated in a reality with very specific physics, otherwise they are unstoppable, and so earth's universe has been assimilated to give us a fighting chance.
Garth must set aside everything that he knows, and think fast to adapt to the new laws of nature if he wants to survive.
Previously called Standard Reincarnation Story
In a fraction of a moment, the Earth was no more. The planet was destroyed, and billions and billions of people were dead. And it was all an accident.
This is the story of Elm. A regular American born once on earth and given a chance to be reborn again on a planet with magic and monsters and dungeons. Except that for Elm, this is far from the idealistic reincarnation into a loving family -- the standard story of a child raised by loving parents who teach him the ways of the world,
Instead, Elm is born into a family of inquisitors. An order of nobility that is dedicated to hunting down and killing "Twice-Lived" -- the name society has for people like Elm who are reincarnated with all their memories of their past life intact.
This story is:
1) Extremely violent and graphic.
2) Still in a rough draft stage. I see what I am writing more like a synopsis than a fully fledged story. I periodically will go back to flesh out earlier chapters, build characters, etc... If you find the words "Show don't tell," comforting accept that unfortunately, I'm not at that stage of the writing process yet.
3) At one point this story was called "Standard Reincarnation Story," and I had written an extremely off-putting description of the story. This was mostly to keep out people who would just read the silly first few chapters then rage quit as soon as the violent stuff got started. Since I just had my first .5 star rating (without a page read count increase) that technique is not working, so I might as well treat this as a regular fiction and try to get regular readers.
The legendary Gorgon, Medusa, spends a solitary life on her island Sarpedon. The only interruptions to her monotonous life are the occasional expeditions of foolish humans that try to slay her for fame and riches.
This story begins on the day that just another of these expeditions brings along an unusual woman. A priestess of Athena that was born blind and is not afraid of the Gorgon. Soon those two are forced into an unexpected coexistence on the small island.
Will those two unlikely life partners learn to get along?
Ten years…. For ten years, I traveled throughout Yggdrasil with my friends, both old and new. We explored massive catacombs, underground rivers, and kingdoms made entirely of gold. But that time of peaceful exploration has come to an end and the time for action is upon us.
We know what we have to do and for the most part, we accept it. However, recently, a divide has appeared inside our close-knit group. Though not serious enough to cause true issues, it has caused unnecessary tension among the elves.The goblins and I, on the other hand, we know and accept what we have to do to make this world safer for the next generation.
Each monster race has its own royal family and it’s this family that we must either recruit… or assimilate by force, if necessary. For our dream of a peaceful future, where true war doesn’t exist, where children no longer need to be orphaned from monster attacks, and where my wife can live out her days happily…. Even if I won’t be there to ensure her safety.
I know our chances aren’t great and I’ve come to accept that I will probably die long before I see the benefits of our work, but that won’t stop me… Us, it won’t stop us.
The goblins and l will rise to the top and bring the monster races together under one banner, while the elves do the same for the ‘civilized’ races and at the end, if we do it right, the only thing that could stand between us and true peace, is the antagonistic gods and their followers.
If they leave us alone and allow us to live out our lives in peace, then I’ve decided to leave them and theirs alone… However, should they stand in our way or harm any of the people I care about, then even if I have to consume Yggdrasil itself, I. Will. Kill. Them.

On a fated day, Seth ran into an old acquaintance, his childhood friend. There was a slight problem, though. The once small and cute girl turned into a tempting beauty and thanks to some misfortune, she was forced to find a new lodging. Being a gentleman, Seth offered the empty room in his family house.
What the girl didn't know was that Seth was the incarnation of a god, the Egyiptian god of sex and 'creator of all things', Khem. Although he was a very conservative person, not even he could resist the girl's tempting body, which finally unlocked his slumbering potential. The nobles in the city wanted the girl for themselves since she was a talented magician, but little did they know that the world was more than the city they lived in. Meeting one threat after the other, Seth was forced to leave his cover and come out of hiding.
Naturally, he wasn't the only god incarnation around.
A soldier dies on a battlefield, his body broken but his mind at peace. He died for the only thing he truly cared about, his family.
In a different world a talented mage completes his life’s work, an entire rebuilding of one of the greatest ancient spells, resurrection. Bypassing the stringent requirements, he attempts to make this great magic accessible to the masses, and by doing so earn his place in history.
But lost to the passage of time is the reason for these requirements. Not to unnecessarily complicate this great magic, but to ensure the transfer of only mortal souls.
For there are things that dwell in the realm of the dead that should never be allowed to cross over.
These chapters can be seen as the first draft of the book, Aspect of the Beast. After the story is complete, I plan to edit and rewrite the entire novel before publishing the finished product.
These chapters will stay on the website for any who wish to read them, however the finished product will not be uploaded.
Any commentary and reviews will be appreciated.
She was a legend amongst the empire, a warrior without equal who feared nothing. When towns were threatened with death she would appear and save them. Then...she vanished.
Twenty years passed by and Liliana Rose has chosen to go her own way, leaving behind her family. Eager to prove her worth and to make her mother and father proud, Lily heads off to the outskirts of the empire. What she finds there will change her entire destiny, and send her life spiraling down a path filled with curves.
Reincarnating with the gamer interface was all a part of the plan, being reborn as Ron Weasley not so much. It was something I could work with, sure. Magic is great! But as I would soon learn, it had the tendency of introducing a plethora of other issues.
