Hiro Hayashi, a twenty-something year-old man struggles to understand the hand that was dealt to him. He has lost so much. It's too much for him to handle. But he must know the the truth that is threaded into his fate and the universe. With nothing but a cryptic symbol, he must live through a lifetime to know the that the truth has been there all along.
“Life is not fair” is one thing unanimously agreed upon. The world was separated into two types of beings. NPCs, those were just like those normal people found in our world… And PCs, those with extraordinary power and magic, able to grow stronger through fighting and killing others. PCs were unanimously superior to their NPC counterparts by leaps and bounds… Our story focused on a PC named Trigna Silver. Trigna, being an unusual demi-human with immense strength and a talent for fighting, is considered an abomination by most, and is hated as a result by many before they can get to know him. Will he become someone more in line with a traditional hero, descend into villainy, or something else altogether?
This is not a story of an everyman farm boy who goes off to save the world and inspire others. This is not the story of a hero who goes out of his way to save every person they meet out of the goodness of his heart for nothing in return. This is not a story where the protagonist is a goody two shoes who can do no wrong. This is not a story about bigger numbers taking the place of the plot. This is not a story where all “not heroes” are heroes in everything but name. This is not a story where all “good guys” are all they’re cracked up to be. This is not a story where “bad guys” are just evil enough to be redeemed because they do the bare minimum to be considered evil. Despite all this is not a story that’s all gloom and doom either, that would be boring… If anything, there’s optimism and comedy inside in addition to everything else. This is a story about an adventurer, and what type of person would go leave their homes to go kill things for fun and profit. The morality of that, I’ll leave up to you. After all, if a monster can kill a hundred men, what does that make the man that can kill a monster?
Disclaimer: Despite what my characters, both protagonists and antagonists, may do, I in no way encourage or endorse their actions in real life. This is simply a story I’m telling, nothing more.
A new member of the largest guild in the Empire is given what seems to be a normal assignment.
What most would call an ancient monster wakes up from a three thousand year sleep.
An outsider yearns to see more of the world, but cannot afford the hefty fees.
A collection of one-shots utilizing various commonly used tropes.
Only tales of fiction will be written, most of them including action, sci-fi, and comedy, however, other genres will be attempted such as tragedy or horror. There will be a disclaimer at the start of those stories.
Five tabletop gamers suddenly and without warning find themselves thrust into a series of dangerous and terrifying scenarios, forced to adapt and act like characters in a role playing game. They struggle to stay sane and in touch with their humanity as they try and figure out exactly what's going on and how they can stop the endless cycle.
The twist? They are characters in a game, being played by the author as he writes the story. Survival Mode is a narrative solo roleplaying game Let's Play presented as serial fiction. Call it a LitsPlay, or a LPFic or something.
* This is a solo RPG. It’s me, using GURPS and some sort of GM emulator. Likely one that’ll change as time goes on. I roll dice to decide what happens according to the game mechanics, and then write it up like a story.
* The PCs were created randomly using the RPG supplement Central Casting: Heroes NOW and written up as 75 point characters in GURPS. That makes them somewhat capable but ordinary people unsuitable for a life of adventure, but they have to do it anyway.
* The game is written in a narrative third person style. You can ignore the mechanical footnotes and just read it like a story.
* We’re using pre-written RPG scenarios as our base, but will divert as our GM emulator dictates.
While the game is tagged as Fan Fiction, it is in fact an Actual Play (simiar to a video game Let's Play) report of a game in progress, one that I play while writing, using real published RPG materials from different companies.
Justice doesn't come without a sacrifice, when Alex morals and ideals are put to the test in the One piece world,what kind of route will he take to achieve his goals,will he comprimise and live a dull live or risk it all for once.
I was killed by the Demon King, but I am not met with death but a different body in a different world. The world isn't filled with mana but with a different energy but I can still feel my mana.
Author's Note: First fiction work looking for feedback. Working title and Synopsis.

Have you ever thought of a world where your life can be summed up in a series of events without any sense or finality ?
My life fits this definition and this is my story.
First fiction that I post in my whole life, my native language is not English, if you find mistakes / inconsistency, do not hesitate to report them.

This is my third novel on Royal Road, the first being "Beyond the Horizon's Eye", and the second being "The Dawnfire Archives". This story is something of a test in a new genre, that of CardLIT. We'll see how well it succeeds as the story continues. It takes place in a different setting than my other tales, with an entirely new cast of characters. It does, however, contain several ties between the stories.
Chapters posted once or twice a week. Average post between 1000 - 3000 words per chapter.
"Tell me... Why does the Oracle fancy snakes so much?"
"Because their venom is precious. They are quiet and dealy, much like any assassin, yet when you see them under an innocent gaze-- they seem innocent and sweet like a common garden snake. Knowing that, would you reach out to pet the snake secreting poison or would you mind your business?"
A collection of short stories and flash fiction pertaining to In the Garden of Snakes and the universe it's crafted in.
On a medieval world full of magic the village girl Jenna takes a mandatory magic test and gets an average result, or so everyone thought. She never expected or hoped for more.
The test was not the magic ball everyone thought it was and the resluts were not all that was tested. The test that shouldn't have had any effect on her life led her behind the facade of her world and into space.
Her entire world was nothing but a closed off enclave of medieval fanatics protected under an ancient law for cultural diversity. And Jenna fell into one of the few ways out of her planet as she was recruited into the military of an empire so diverse and large she might never see its borders. It was not a standard recruitment, to say the least.
One of her first jobs fresh out of school is the containment of isekai protagonists whose souls a mad scientist spread all over the more primitive worlds under the protection of the act.
But was the act itself a good thing?
Kiera Bloodcrest is a 17-year old girl that's torn away from her home to become a slave and finds herself in the middle of an uprising after being rescued by a rebellion. While she and the rebellion struggle for survival, she decides to join them so she can save her family from the current Emperor's tyranny. But the Lands of Trinity are treacherous, especially in these grim times and the Emperor is the most powerful man in Oryn. Many would say this attempt of overthrowing the Emperor is a lost cause because of that. Will they be right? Or will they be wrong?
An ad for a part-time job beta testing a new MMORPG leads our protagonist out of this world and into a virtual one filled with very real dangers. The goal of this game isn't to win, it's to survive--and the odds don't look so good. Even if our hero does make it out alive, will they ever be the same?
Author's Note: I wrote the main body of this story several years ago, and I am just now getting around to revising it. I'm adding a new frame-story to it because I was dissatisfied with the previous one. I imagine that I'll be posting each chapter as I finish it, around once a week, then go back and revise each "section" for coherence until I'm satisfied with it. Section 1 (INITIATING) will be from the Cover Copy to Start Game, so once I post the first version of "Start Game", I'll go back and edit that section until it's tight, flows, and makes sense internally. So if you read something the first time, and come back to check it later and find it's dramatically different, that's what's going on.
I'll probably repeat the same process for sections DREAM, FALSE AWAKENING, NIGHTMARE, and TERMINATING.
As this is very much a work-in-progress, any feedback that I can use to inform my editing process would be most appreciated. It's also my first time posting a work of substantial length online, so...I humbly ask for your kind consideration *uwu*
