100 people are thrown into a world, bestowed wonderous abilities and powers and forced to fight for the Gods' entertainment. Some of the 100 are bad, some are good and there are some that are a bit of both.

Join Jason, who's one of the latter, as he fights to survive while also finding time to have fun doing so.

A tale entwined with the grasp of evil and crude vengeance. Stories told to scare children far and wide.
A tale about the Dark King who started it all, the tale of endless chaos and the oh so miraculous group of heroes who ended such a diabolical terror.
With his last dying breath, he swore that they will rue the day of his death, cursing the heroes for eternity.

Thousands of years have passed since his reckoning, reborn in a new body of countless sacrifice.
Will he be able to grow his kingdom once more?
Will he rise what was once fallen, or will he like all others, die yet another unforgiving death.

Bring forth the ascension of the Fallen.

I may or may not continue the story as I am not all that good at writing stuff, and I am pretty sure my grammar is terrible as I am a Brazilian learning English. If it goes well after the 5 chapter I will challenge myself to complete it.

A stranger in dark cloak creeped into the room of a small Elven child on one fateful day. Wyrran was playing with his sister one second, but the next he was gone. Stolen from the middle of their estate, and never to be seen again in Elven country.

Years go by, hundreds of years, and Wyrran has grown into a man. His name has been changed to William, though his Master was put under the instruction to make sure he lost his memory from before the ago of 80, and from what Wyrran knew he had always been William.

After he has completed his training and he finished many various tasks William is sent on a job for the King of Trace. It was a confidential assignment, which was new to William in the first place, but never would he imagine that this one job just may be his last.


Hey everyone! Author here (:

This is my first time posting any of my works online, and I hope that you enjoy being welcomed into my world, as much as I enjoy creating it for you!

I welcome any and all criticism, so long as it is actually something that can benefit my writing (not just random hating and nothing substantial).

This story is edited by Nesryn, and another of my friends.

I will post a cover as soon as I have one made (:

I am posting this to see if it generates any interest. If it does, then I will be planning on making more regular posts for chapters. I am intending this to be one book of a series, titled The Lost Royal. 


Far Away And Long Ago

Far Away And Long Ago

Original Action Adventure Drama Fantasy LitRPG Reincarnation Supernatural Multiple Lead Characters Magic Profanity Gore

Far Away & Long Ago
The Sun, The Moon, and Stars aglow
Wizards and Druids practice their Arts
While Rogues and Fighters throw their darts

Far Away & Long Ago
Rivers deep and wilderness old
Caverns dark and Mountains high
Trees stand tall and Giant Birds fly

Far Away & Long Ago
Castles and Keeps high and low
Horse drawn carriages and mule pulled wagons
Dungeons filled with Gold and Dragons

Far Away & Long Ago
Castles, Keeps, and Golden Chateaus
Fortunes lost deep in mines
Pickaxes swing with Battle-Cries

Far Away & Long Ago
Snow may fall and wind may blow
Knights of Old and Heroes Anew
Sages and Bards will sing their tune

For the past three years I've been playing Dungeons & Dragons as a Dungeon Master. The stories that came from both my players and my lore within my homebrew campaign was in my opinion interesting enough for me to put to text. This story may seem a bit groggy at first, but I hope you enjoy the stories from Far Away and Long Ago.

This world that I am using is still being played, so when the time comes that the lore of my original players come to an end I will be able to continue the world. 

Please be patient as I am still in school, so chapter releases may vary. However, I will try to shoot for a chapter a week on Fridays at 8:00 P.M. EST.

Thanks for coming along and Take it Easy

In a world where a godly chip gives everyone powers they're not allowed to choose and the possibility to see each other's status, Alec never wanted to be a fire sorcerer.
But he made a promise to his best friend - they would both do their best to get stronger and one day save their poor city.

So when he wins the annual tournament and gets invited to the prestigious Drexus academy he leaps at the opportunity.

When the academy is attacked by the mysterious Reapers, Alec and five of his colleagues are thrown into a massive secret about who's really behind the chips and its true possibilities.
The director asks them to run to Relics where an old powerful friend will protect them and might know what to do with the letter. He also asks them not to read it fearing they won't know what to do with the truth.

Alec has to put all his doubts aside as the road to Relic is fraught with unforeseen disasters, and it will take every ounce of their strength, courage, and ingenuity to get past them.

A harrowing encounter with a monstrous trow leaves Garrain of the Wengarlen Circle on the brink of ruin. Bereft of his magic, the young greenhand must learn the ways of a warrior and embark on a quest that will challenge him in ways he never imagined. For there is more to his foe than meets the eye. A great and terrible power stirs behind that dreadful visage; one that spreads madness and corruption in her wake.

Hiding in her lair deep in the mountains, Saskia Wendle doesnโ€™t want to spread anything, except perhaps some goodwill and bad puns. If everyone would just calm down and stop trying to kill her for one minute, sheโ€™d have a chance to explain that this has all been a horrible misunderstanding.

Also, if someone would give her a hint as to why sheโ€™s trapped inside this grotesque new body, in a world that resembles the game she and her friends have been creating, that would be fantastic.

Being the son of a famous mage is tough. Especially when you're shit at magic. And double especially when your rival is an absolute prodigy - and a girl, too. Just to rub salt in the wound.

But, as is the life of Tobias Edell.

However... everything's about to change.

While out in the woods one day, a meteor strikes close by Tobias. Except... it's no meteor. It's a guy. A guy who wants to make a deal with Tobias. A guy claiming to be Azrai, the God of Thunder.

Here's the situation: Azrai has been banished from the Heavens and imprisoned in a weak, human shell, completely stripped of his divine abilities. But, a split second before he was cast out, he sent a fraction of his godly power down to the first human that would find him - Tobias. That fraction is infinitesimally small compared to what he could've given the teen - and if Tobias brings him to a place called Lightning Mountain, he'll be more than happy to give him the full package. Azrai's light on the details, but gives Tobias a clear choice.

Go home now with the power you have.

Or bring me to the mountain and become stronger than you could ever imagine.

I think you can guess which option Tobias chooses.

After Life

After Life

Original Action Adventure Psychological Sci-fi Reincarnation Supernatural Magic Profanity Gore

In the near future scientists have discovered a very real threat to the earth brought on by massive solar flares.  With anarchy spreading, the governments of the world have banded together in order to prepare for the worst. Building disaster vaults, and designating safety zones in order to protect lawful citizens and the world's elites.

After a chain of catastrophic events, beings known as Ultrasapiens, arise from the ashes of the old world.  In essence, they are a transcendence of human evolution fused with a primal will of instinct.  These individuals are able to reclaim their physical selves, to pursue a road laid out before them by something bigger than us all.  

Struggling to piece together everything that happened, the Ultrasapiens learn that there is much more to the universe than ever thought possible.  They will discover the key role that they, and the Earth truly play for the future.  Two forces strive for dominance.  One encourages the will of natural growth, letting the universe flow to its own design.  The other controls with a forceful manipulation, shaping reality to a designed outcome.  Religion is met with science, faith met by truth, and fiction with reality.

A Deep Dive to the Lost Server is illegal but possibly the world's most lucrative job. In the not-so-distant future, the very first AI has gone rogue, dumping the specs for Deep Dive technology onto the internet and creating the first neural immersive virtual world. This Lost Server is the repository for millions of dollars the AI has siphoned from corporate and government electronic transactions. In the United States, Deep Diving is illegal but attractive to the desperate, greedy, and the romantic.

A group of friends, familiar with Deep Dives, decide to challenge a dungeon. In the treasure room rests more than 2 million dollars. Between them and that treasure are monsters who could potentially render them brain-dead in real life. This is the story of the party's leader, Helba, and her experience of this Dive.
