*This fiction is based on the game Kenshi by LO-FI games. I do not claim any sort of ownership over it*

Kenshi wasn’t a wide spread game, most people would say it’s downright unenjoyable. The games main concept was that you start as nothing and work your way up from there. The world was unforgiving, people would beat you unconscious on the mere suspicion that you had food on you and the wildlife was just plentiful enough to fuck you over when you needed it the least.

The game was hard for newcomers and veterans alike.

Now what if a bunch of random people suddenly woke up in that game? That is our story. Will our countless protagonists give in to the wa6 of the world or will they stick to their morals? Well I can only imagine what the one person who played the game before is capable of......

Talia Redowl, daughter of the goddess Athena, expected - and definitely wanted - to work for her mother when she graduated. In particular, she was hoping to be assigned as an aide to her older sister, Danae, their mother’s Avatar.

So when Talia’s graduation assignment is to become the Avatar of Hades, the legendarily anti-social and brooding god of the Underworld, she protests…the position has gone unfilled for two thousand years. Why her? Why now? The Fates weave a tangled web, and more is at stake than Talia’s plans for her own future.

But before she can take up her new post, Talia Redowl must die.

Death is just the beginning…

Six months out of university, with a useless Bachelor's Degree and a mountain of debt, Luke Wolfson received a job offer from a game development company he'd never heard of. Looking for a way out, he quickly agreed to take the position of tester without asking any questions. He probably should've read the fine print in the contract he signed. Now, he's woken up as a child in a new world of magic and monsters as the representative of a god. Well, things could be worse. At least his debt back on Earth was forgiven thanks to his death, so he may as well make the most out of this second chance.

Everyone knows there’s something off about Skylar, including herself. She wades through high school being normal, but ever since the disappearance of her only friend, her life spirals out of control. Humans with uncommon abilities live closer than she thinks.

Skylar wants nothing to do with the government-sponsored superheroes that inhabit her world, yet a near-death experience makes her one of them: she can stop time with a thought. The entire world, frozen in stasis, can become her playground.

In the city of Duskim, she has to adjust to her new reality. Her powerful ability can’t save her from past regrets, though it attracts the attention of all kinds. If she wants a rank among the heroes, she must stop the resurfaced terrorists threatening to burn down everything she knew.

She may be powerful. She may be powerless. Who is she when it matters the most?

On planet Hexia we follow a young boy named Lin xiu. A seemingly normal boy who is just trying to improve his family's living circumstances. But what started off as a simple struggle to make his family live a better life might turn into something way more complex than that. Follow Lin xiu as he keeps discovering more and more about planet Hexia, his family and the game Pandora that changed his and his family’s lives forever.

This is my first attempt ever to write something like a light novel, so please be patient with me.
Also please help me by giving me constructive criticism that can help me be a better writer and a better person.
All chapters old and new might change as the story goes to make it even better, because this is my first novel and I still have much to learn.(I write 10 chapters ahead compared to the chapters that are uploaded, this is what a mean with *new*).

PS, I am also open to any name suggestions for the characters, as I am not that great in making chinees names.


Thank you for reading my long rant and hope to see a lot of helpful things in the review section.


Love and peace to you all!

Abduction Chronicles: GENESIS

Abduction Chronicles: GENESIS

Original Action Adventure Fantasy LitRPG Sci-fi Magic Profanity Gore Low Fantasy War and Military

Col. Petros Arkansas (Ret.) is abducted from his comfortable home by aliens and his life is forever altered.

The aliens begin to experiment on the Colonel to see what he is made of, figuratively and literally. They insert him into surreal simulations with harsh environments and expect him to survive. During his testing, Petros meets a core group of Spec-Op's operatives while trying to achieve his objectives, and he has to figure out how to ramp up his enhancements, both physical and magical.

He sets out on this wild adventure of self-discovery, self-enhancement, and in some rare instances self-awareness with little choice. The path he chooses is often dark, filled with creatures of folklore, legends and outlandish alien beings, and the steps he takes are wracked with pain, and are far less traveled.

Along the way, he discovers his new masters have grand plans for him, if only he would folllow their rules (like that's ever going to happen). Together with the team he has to face down some of the scariest horrors in existence. Of course learning that humanity’s existence is on a knife’s edge and the road to salvation lies in his hands only adds to his worries. Yet, despite all these obstacles, Petros digs deep into that dogged Spec-Ops persona, and meets the road he treads with a hard, determined step, and a willingness to run as fast as he can.

Will he run towards these stupendous challenges... or away from them?

Embark on this mysterious journey, and discover the secrets within the Abduction Chronicles: GENESIS.

After a crazy memory loss incident, Brian finds himself inside of a dark room, sitting ontop of a stone throne. Confused. Freaked out. And home sick. He tries his best to rationalize the whole situation and comes up with a crazy explanation - that he is somehow inside a game world. As a non-gamer, the whole system is unfamiliar to him and he doesn't know what the hell he's doing, but there is one thing that he knows for sure.

Everyone wants to kill him.

Waking up, dazed and confused, Karl quickly understood that A, he couldn't see anything, and B, something around here smelled heavenly.

And so begins a little tale about a man-turned-amphibian trying to make the best out of his new life, encountering exciting friends along the way and generally just having a nice time. Yes, there will be fantasy elements, and yes, it will be very isekai-ish. 

I hope you'll enjoy it! I accept critizism with open arms, as well as any axolotl love you may show!

Have fun!
