Hollow Born: A LITRPG Dark Fantasy Story

Hollow Born: A LITRPG Dark Fantasy Story

Since time immemorial, the forces of the Hollows and the Luminous have waged endless war against one another. Using a tool they call the system, they’ve manipulated an uncountable number of worlds to do their bidding, forcing various races to fight, kill, and shed blood in their name. Now, this eternal conflict has reached Earth, and Amir Cromwell—an average college student—somehow finds himself in the middle of it all.

-----

Amir Cromwell, left behind during the initial transport of humans to the world of Origin, suddenly finds himself able to use two systems after he comes into contact with a Hollow he aptly called The Unknown. Confused, lost, and determined to survive, he sets out into this new world, using the advantages of having two systems to grow exponentially more powerful.

Follow his adventures as he discovers what mysteries lay in the world of Origin and in himself.  

THE UNMADE

THE UNMADE

A boy kills his parents.

A girl watches her best friend die.

Monsters, magic, and Aether enter the Earth.

The world is changed, and all is unmade.

All her life, Tess has had the belief that a grand destiny lay in her future. Now in her sophomore year of college, years of waiting for this destiny to reveal itself has made her jaded and unmotivated. When a yellow box filled with text imposes itself before Tess’s face, a dying hope re-emerges; has her great future finally come?

Augustus, about the murderous work of vengeance and retribution, has no notion of the change that has come into the earth. The Convergence, as it announces itself. Nor does he particularly care about it. He begins his morning with murder, and ends his day with great power.

“I am just a guy who gained Cosmic power on a fluke.”

Will he learn control, will he find purpose to existence?

*****************************************************************************

The Unmade is basically a post apocalyptic tale. When a realm with magic convergences with the earth, the result is a greatly altered new world. Geography is changed, and much of what existed disappears. In this new world, the powers of the realm of Myth exists, but so do the numbered hosts of men that now fill this new world of monsters and magic. The world is Unmade, and a new order is born.

A picture is worth a thousand words. But why not both?

Pictures will be generated using the Midjourney AI and a prompt. Most upvoted comment becomes the prompt for the next chapter; keep in mind I will write a chapter based on the image generated by the prompt, rather than the prompt itself that generated the image. Each chapter will be unrelated to the previous or future ones and always around the 1k word mark. This is a way for me to write short stories for fun while practicing the craft; at least one update weekly is the goal since I write very very slowly.

Please note: This is an extremely rough second draft of a story I've been coming up with in my head for a good year now and I have no idea if I'll ever continue it or finalize this second draft with the changes I have in mind. I have hundreds of scenarios planned in my head and a bunch of idea's in a notepad file somewhere about how I'd like to continue this story, but I just don't enjoy writing even if I'm okay at it. So yeah, with that in mind enjoy this crudely cobbled together first chapter I came up with in a dream.
