It is the 27th year of the enlightened times, and Napros is besieged on both fronts. To the east, the brutalized king-worshipping slaves of the Khosroshahr rally their armies, their infernal cannons and griffons tearing the city apart from above. To the west, the steel legions of the Nikelo Dominate pound against the city walls with their acid throwers and hellfire spewers, yet, the city stands. It is said that Napros is the obsidian city, for it has never once fell predation to the whims of outsiders.

But John Theodoukas knows the truth. 

Napros will fall.

First time writer, decided to blend aspects of some of my favourite fictions. I didn't make the cover photo, no. Feel free to direct message me or comment any input you have on the story. In the book, there is no group called the Creed of Corruption. That's just because creed is a group with a faith, and the people in this book are usually corrupt.

Artifact Cultivator

Artifact Cultivator

Original Action Adventure Fantasy LitRPG Martial Arts Supernatural Male Lead Female Lead Strong Lead Magic Strategy Wuxia Profanity Sexual Content Gore Traumatising content

When an Archmage reached the limits of his growth, he risked it all to create a godly artifact that could allow him to grow stronger.

After the artifact was formed, a god tried to steal the artifact in greed.

In battle, the Archmage died, but before he did, he sent his artifact into another dimension in hopes that someone worthy would obtain his artifact.

This artifact just happened to land in the hands of Aya, a young beast-kin girl that has no dantian.





This novel will be centered around cultivation, and I will probably make some weird cultivation levels, so be prepared.

The artifact was made in a sword and magic world, so it comes with a system. (Aya would be able to use it to see her stats)

There will be magic, but it will be referred to as a lost art or something.

This will be a yuri novel, so if you don't like that... just warning you...

P.S. - Guys this is my first story. I am trying to learn English better but since I don't have enough money for books, courses or tutors, so your criticism and support will have to do. This is my first time, so please be gentle.


P.P.S. - I selected harem in tags because generally people who like it tend to be more chill. Right now I have a rough sketch till the second volume and there are only two female leads.

Original Action Comedy Fantasy Contemporary Supernatural Male Lead Strong Lead Anti-Hero Lead Profanity

What if you were hunted by the gods, doomed to be thrown in Hell to rot...

First rule of being a fugitive for a crime you didn’t willingly commit: trust no one. Second: humans, demons, and heavenly-beings are assholes. Third, if I have to hear another goddamn pop song, I’ll lose my mind. 
A demigod nowadays is a complete joke. Hell, I bet even sorcerers, witches, and fairies are taken more seriously than me. 
When you’re on the run from the gods, paranoia becomes the only friend that you need. 
I wonder if my goddess friend can actually be trusted. Beer....I need a beer. 

An action and urban fantasy novel.

After an incident with a female thief, Serya is thrown out of the King's Army and into the harsh desert. With nothing but a sword, a knife, and his noble lizard steed Toby, Serya will try to find shelter, safety, and women... well, he was doing that before he got thrown out, but, whatever.

This story will include sexual content and violence. Read cautiously... unless you like that stuff, which, I do too, man.

 This is my first attempt at writing in the public domain, I'm trying to keep the story unbiased and neutral as possible as it progresses.

Due to the main characters viewpoint it will be skewed at first. I hope to balance this out with the eventual introduction of other pov characters. 

Any constructive criticism is welcome and will seriously be considered. 

Thanks for your time,
