For thousands of years, the Hunters Guild has been exploring Yggdrasil's many Verses looking for safe worlds for humanity to colonise. They've been fighting Dread Beasts, dealing with Primordials and hiding from the eldritch entities out to devour all life. And, Kat is going to join their quest.

Growing up, Kat dreamt of Magehood. She was sure her mother, Greypic's best apothecary woman and brewer would have little trouble getting her a seat in the Academy in the capital. Everything was set when she turned sixteen. She was of age, and sure of her talent. Then a brewing accident took her mother and left the Aether Channels in her arms warped. 

Now, Kat is struggling to make ends meet. She's doing whatever it takes to stay above the poverty line and save enough for the Hunters Guild license and a Codex.

Will their resources help Kaitlyn Fairleaf fix her scarred arms? Or will she die crippled and alone?

People have always dreamed of going back in time. All their regrets, all their grievances, everything could be sorted out if only they went back.

Shesmu didn’t.

He had his regrets but they weren’t major. He was remorseful for many things but he didn’t let them stop him. He always forged on ahead, regardless of what anyone said, regardless of the odds. In the end, he reached a place in life where he was proud. Captain of the most legendary team of Ashes of Gods, one of the strongest players in the game. But more importantly, he had a loving wife and daughter.

That was until one morning where he woke up and found himself back ten years in the past. He couldn’t believe it. While most people would jump in joy, Shesmu drowned in an ocean of despair. All of his achievements, gone. All of his friends, gone. His wife, she didn’t even know him. And most importantly, his daughter. She was no more.

Her smiles, her laughs haunted him in his sleep. However, Shesmu persevered. His eyes were still bright. The source of his drive was one thing. A letter. Sender—unknown. Motive left to mystery. However, it still gave Shesmu the power to push, the will to hope. It said: “Meet me in Ashes of Gods.”

As you see from the title, this novel is about someone reincarnating into the Fallout world with a Gamer System.

This will contain a powerful mc but he will start like a normal person with a system to help him grow.


Jackson Kaster is your not-so-average badass, joining the military with his parent's permission at the age of sixteen, serving in many battles and wars over the years.

He chose to specialize in CQC and Marksmanship, he served with distinction and respect until he was 27, he was dishonorably discharged for disobeying several direct commands.

He took up a bodyguard job for some rich teenager that showed him "The World of Games" as the boy put it.

Jackson, for some unknown reason, found a deep love for the Fallout Franchise, especially Fallout 3, which he completed about half a dozen times.

He died later that same year when he saved the boy from an assassination attempt.

Blood and darkness covered his vision as a feeling of peace washed over him.
