When the worlds were relatively young and the gods still made the mistakes of rebelious youths. When most creatures still knew the legends of their creation, before legends become myths and myths became lost. Follow the stories of a few individuals who lived and died before the laws of the universe were set by the will of God.
My first attempt at a story. Will try to make it interesting but please bear with me. Also not a English home language speaker so expect a lot of typos and gramma errors. Also making all this up day to day. Sometimes I inhale smoke and feel 'genius' revelations fall upon me. (Trying to get all my ideas on paper before my creative years disappear).
Disclaimer: Cover Photo Not Mine. I just thought it looks cool and decided my story is going there.

Everyone has their own reasons, be it past events, personality or simply company.
But most at some point divulge themselves into videogaming, be it for entertainment or more compettitive reasons.
In this year and age there are many genres of gaming, one specific genre though still holds on tight to the ledge it was pushed to trying to pull itself back up. MMORPGs were once the top of everybody's list, adventure, combat, storytelling and endless grind in one single game. It was a different life for most, as if a parallel world to our own.
You could be a knight indulging yourself in combat, a mage expertly crafting spells of mass destruction or creation. A ranger exploring the land and hunting down prey, an assassin completing contracts and hording the spoils. A troll scamming children out of their hard earned 10 gold and making more hardcore players rage quit for the day.
Or something else.
Kyle was a simple player, he always picked the strangest classes or jobs and his characters almost looked the same. He played for the combat, he played for the grind and he played for his guild but above all he played for the story.
Kyle is a roleplayer, one who enjoys the simple parts of this virtual life. Whether his guild was starting a war or ending one he'd always have his drammatic entrence or exit, his decleration of annihalition or demand of surrender.
After all that? He divulged himself in the game's story, the interaction with NPCS (Non Player Characters) and their advanced AI.
He went through many questlines, many tales of heroics and many more adventurers of legend but one thing always remained true with his character.
Kyle absolutely loved to the play the villain.
But when game turns reality, what will he and his guild of twisted personalities do?
To stay alive, Jawad must succeed where all others have failed: he must catch the Prince of Cats. More legend than man, the Prince is draped in rumours. He can steal the silver teeth from your mouth in the blink of a smile. He is a ghost to walls and vaults, he laughs at locks, and Jawad must capture him before powerful people lose their patience and send the young rogue to the scaffold.
Ever the opportunist, Jawad begins his hunt while carrying out his own schemes. He pits the factions of the city against each other, lining his own pockets in the process and using the Prince as a scapegoat. This is made easy as nobody knows when or where the Prince will strike, or even why.
As plots collide, Jawad finds himself pressured from all sides. Aristocrats, cutthroats, and the Prince himself is breathing down his neck. Unless Jawad wants a knife in his back or an appointment with the executioner, he must answer three questions: Who is the Prince of Cats, what is his true purpose, and how can he be stopped?
The Prince of Cats is set in the same world as my other fiction, The Eagle's Flight, but the two stories are not connected. It updates every second Wednesday; the story has 23 chapters in total. Information and a map of the city can be found here.
For generations, a nameless man has been passed down through Cane's family- one who never seems to age, remembers the stories of old, and knows the depths of men's hearts.
On the outside, Cane's family appeared to be simple fishermen. Yet when he turned eighteen and his life entwined with the nameless man forever, Cane learned they were far more than he could imagine. And as they are hunted while pursuing hidden secrets, Cane's life enters turmoil, where nothing is clear.
But one thing is certain, says the nameless man.
The world will soon change forever.

One day Humanity ruled the World.
The next day they were gone.

Updated on Modays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
Bran Lietmann is a student by day and a demon hunter by night. However, after becoming fatally injured in the line of duty, he is transformed by the mysterious Alice Vancratt into a demon to save his life. Now feared by humanity, he finds himself drawn into Alice's world and is forced to team up with her in order to protect what little he has left.
My life changed forever the moment I stole a life-saving medicine to cure my mom's otherwise terminal cancer. There was never really a chance that my Mega-Corp employer wouldn't catch me. I was convicted before they even kicked in our door, but my mom was cured. That made it all worth it.
Now, I'm not Zachary, "Zee", Jones anymore, I'm Inmate 81348. My only chance at getting out of jail again is to sign up for the "Inmate Gamer Release Program". OzCo, the Mega-Corp that runs the entire Justice system now, will get to use my brain to mine crypto-currency, Crypts, for my restitution and profits. While they do that, I'll be playing the Game, a fully immersive virtual reality world, jacked into my brain. If I play well, I'll be out in 5-8 years, instead of the 20 I'd have in store by serving "hard time" IRL.
There are many worlds within the Game, almost every bit of intellectual property ever created has been licensed to have representation in the Game. Statistically, I'll probably end up on Gygax because it's the most popular and has the most constant need for new players. It's a Medieval Sword & Sorcery world with Elves and Orcs, Wizards, and Knights. Wish I knew how to use a sword.
Wish me luck.

Ragnarök, judgement day or the day of reckoning. Every religion and cult has foretellings of the final day. For most people it is just an old tale, something to frighten misbehaving children or a tool for scaring the masses.
But for Shea and her world this became a despairing reality. Forests turned into deserts and seas became salt lakes. Continents were smashed together, becoming one or disappearing without a trace. The whole world was covered in the ashes of fires.
