Roll for Initiative

Roll for Initiative

Jonathan Johnson has lead a less than comfortable life. Just as things settle down, and things start looking up life has a funny way of sweeping you off your feet. Now Jon negotiates with creatures of yore, trains burgeoning adventurers, raises dragons, and fights off creatures intent to rip the very soul from his body. The worst part is the prophecy regaling him as some sort of evil monstrosity intent on destroying the world, but nobody told him that.

This story is a revamp of my original story with the same name. Characters, and plot are very different. I encourage people who dropped the story to give the new version a try.

Exponential Mana Regeneration

Exponential Mana Regeneration

When the Change occurred, humanity suddenly found itself with superhuman constitutions and the ability to use mana. All the government leaders had known about it beforehand and had made an announcement, so there was little strife and instead excitement to loot the dungeons that the Change had created. Kyle Anders was incredibly excited when he saw his starting skill, called Exponential Mana Regeneration, but his excitement quickly waned when he realized it was almost useless with his starting mana pool of twenty. He had nearly given up hope on being a mage when his family got him a new skill for his 18th birthday. Suddenly, with his mana pool expanded because of the skill, Kyle’s mana regeneration shot through the roof. But while humanity worked hard to loot dungeons and increase their skills and stats, Change was coming, and peace cannot last forever.

 

 The story is currently on haitus. 


(This story is a work in progress. As the first story that I have ever written, the beginning, especially the first ten chapters or so, needs heavy editing. I have decided to continue writing the story instead of going back and editing the beginning. I hope that despite all its flaws you will still find my story enjoyable.) 

Dungeon Isolation

Dungeon Isolation

About a dedicated gamer who reached the very end of a game after 6 years of playing non-stop. Forgetting anything around him and only focusing on the game. Only caring about his personal health, hygiene and looks, he dismissed everything as he immersed himself to complete the impossible game, even when the real world collapsed and dungeons formed all around.

The Arisen amongst the populace of Earth took up arms against the monsters within them, gaining supernatural powers in the process.

The 20 year old posted his victory over the once-thought-unbeatable game, on the forums that were once watched by the whole world and gameplay streamed live to a million spectators and players. He only receives meager praise from five people of the millions that he had imagined would be there.

He wandered outside in the dark of night aiming for the vending machine placed in a dark alleyway, but slipped inside the barrier of a rank 1 dungeon unbeknownst to anyone including himself.

(Get ready for the most over-powered protagonist on the entire Earth. He shatters the nine heavens. Turns the constellations upside down with his almighty energy, that is a magnet to all forms of harems, and it even rivals Kir###'s harem gathering power! First, ready yourselves for the most slice-of-life, snail-paced, slow plot development and worm-sized chapters in the whole of Royal Road. Don't even think about enjoying this one!)


I don't post on weekends.

Swordverse Infinity

Swordverse Infinity

Perils await in the world of Asagatha, The Divines have left to unknown destinations, leaving their children behind. Humans in the north are expanding their borders viciously driving the other races to a corner. The Ashera, beings born from remnant magical constructs of an ancient extinct race are beginning to awaken and  slaughter everything carving a new swath of destruction in the southern lands. To the East lies the great Eir Venaris Empire, where Elves roam the highly advanced cities and stick to their old seclusionist ways. To the west lies the Beast Tribes of Par Nathis united for the first time under King Umra of the Wolf clan, and finally, down below beneath the land and in a forgotten ruin, underneath the rubble of a thousand wars past, lies a great Terror, slumbering since time immemorial, forgotten but never forgiven for past deeds, lying still in the abyss. What will happen to the world with all this Chaos unleashed? Will it be the end? Or maybe a beginning of something new? 

Within the endless forest

Within the endless forest

 

this is primarily a writing exercise where three genres and three additional tags are selected using a program designed to spit out random values. After these genres and tags have been selected you write a story around them. The genres and tags that I got were as follows: Fantasy, comedy, horror, gender bender, reincarnation, and xianxia. This is my first attempt at this and as you will find out I am not very good, I hope to get better but it will take time so your patience and your advice would be greatly appreciated.

The story revolves around Dave who dies in his sleep. this results in him being reincarnated into a fantasy world where monsters are being barely held at bay and the human race is taking its last stand. Will Dave become strong enough to save his village? Will he (now she) be able to get used to her new body? Will the author be able to balance comedy and horror? Find out as I slowly update this series at a frustrating pace.

Feeling their very existences threatened by this new race, the old ones allied themselves to face the earthling. That was the beginning of the Eternal War. Millions of years later, Aziel, a great general of humanity, barely escaped death by teleporting to a foreign world not touched by the Eternal War. A new world full of cultivators and monsters. On her way to Earth, she will face numerous dangers and bloody battles. This is her story.

Synopsis-In work 

High School DEATH GAMES

High School DEATH GAMES

"'Why,' a woman asked me, 'would they show a movie with things I do not want to see?'

She is not unusual.

Most people choose movies that provide exactly what they expect, and tell them things they already know.

Others are more curious.

We are put on this planet only once, and to limit ourselves to the familiar is a crime against our minds."

 - From the Great Roger Ebert

Be forewarned, this story is not for everyone.

It's not even for some people. This is for just a select few who get wet from misery and excited by suffering.

This is no level up, power up, let's kill monsters, op mc, fantasy land, standard litrpg garbage you find in basically every other story on this site. If the rest of RoyalRoad is shounen (which it is), then this is Gantz/Berserk.

Sorry. I lied. This is darker than Berserk and bloodier than Gantz.

Not a manga fan? Then how about Korean cinema? Have you heard of Kim Ki-duk? His works The Isle, Moebius, and Pieta all come to mind.

Again, this is not for normal people. There's a bunch of other normal stories for normal people to read. The whole rest of the site library is for normal.

This is a special section set aside for a special type of story meant for a special kind of people. If you follow or favorite this, you're telling the whole world that you're a little different. A bit twisted.

I guess you could call it the BDSM of reading. Which segues perfectly into the introduction.

Are you kinky? Are you familiar with the taboo? Have you ever thought about the depths of human depravity?

What I'm trying to ask is, do you like fucked up shit?

Do you like massacres and public shamings? Do you like watching people fall into despair, going insane, or turning into psychopaths? Do you get turned on when love is destroyed and hedonism reigns king?

Well, I've got the perfect story for you!

If you're uncomfortable with profanity, gore, sexual and traumatising content, then I recommend you move on.

I won't judge you just cause you're a pussy.

And I'm not talking about the fake labels of the other candy ass stories on this site who think their shit is morbid or even remotely disturbing, I'm talking about the shocking, offensive, real fucked up shit that you can't even use incognito mode for and you gotta install Tor browser. (You don't actually need to install Tor, you idiot.)

If you love that shit or even if you're just curious, then read on. I swear it's not as bad as you think it'll be. It's much worse.

 - Signed with no love, Marley (written by a friend in the voice of Marley)

Unapologetic, cynical, pretentious, pessimistic, hypocritical, selfish, sarcastic, passive, apathetic asshole main character named Marley.

Alternate POV: Badass, intelligent, proactive, loving, nice, friendly, optimistic co-main character Sophia.

This is essentially a rough draft. Grammar and spelling has been read through and fixed for the most part.

If you don't like something, tell me why you don't like it. Don't just rate it low anonymously. Thanks.

Spartan (Re)

Original Action Fantasy LitRPG

A LitRPG-ish story with no ‘status screen’, no attributes, no skills and no game nonsense. Only the Abilities granted by Gods upon their chosen champions. Thor will not be Over-powered, nor will he be perfect. After all, he’s only human.

 

Or is he?

The True Unlimited Powers

The True Unlimited Powers

In a world where power and energy available to every creature, whether it is a magical nature or latent, require physical effort or not become an integral part of everyday life for each creature, extract some energy or force requires training only a few of it is used by nature or animals and mythical creatures be instinctively, and some people are born with or acquire or inherit, energy has not only affected the creatures even plants and inanimate objects.

Energy existed since time immemorial and until now, but what affected the creatures and plants, and what is the reason.
The cause is unknown., And no one cares, and so became Hiaa very natural as breathing air.
Most of the material has become illogical physics such as gravity, energy transmission, however, no one can (create) or even the composition of an organism, and it was almost impossible to convert energy from one form to another.

This has become the world's capacity and manipulation of energy is a natural thing of all, and divide the capacity to:
The ability of nature: where are located inside the object since its birth.
Acquired ability: where the creature acquired during the period of his life, whether by transferring ability of one person to another or as a result of training or genetics, but awakens from new energy to become the focus of attention because the ratio does not exceed 0.0001%.

And with so few of them imortel, perhaps assisted by the power to reduce aging and prolong life with the use of energy (magic) does not mean to live forever, and requires treatment, one medication, and because of the difficulty of energy conversion, only a few managed the conversion of certain energy to physical form or convert physical energy to vital or transfer material to the material in other words, difficult to transfer (change) in the atoms of that article.

Use of energy and power did not obviate the use of tools due to the different capabilities and methods of work and its impact but use has increased in some countries and empires used in wars.

Only one person just can not use energy and is not affected by what that everything is affected by it was the only case of its kind, has the slow growth of the body and the mind and the soul more than the elves, semi imortel 13 years old, and due to take prey organizations and groups and countries and also did not escape the empires has many names (Blue devil) (Blue imortel)

Let's play a game.

 

What is the most important thing in life? You have 5 seconds to answer before you lose.

 

If you chose any answer besides Family, there are no retries. There are no other chances and extra credit. 

 

Game...Over.

 

Follow our Main Character as he becomes a Mafia Boss for his plans on world domination.

 

"There is no such thing as "right" and "wrong". The victor writes the history books while the loser sits back and accepts it or get eliminated. The winners get praised and everyone thinks of them as Heroes and the reverse for the losers. I've killed, I've pillaged, I've destroyed...and I won." I pull the trigger. 

Avine: The Journey

Avine: The Journey

Avine, the name recorded in the oldest records of faith concerning the creation of the world. The lands of Avine are in turmoil. A lengthy war recently ended. Casualties were terrible, but not limited to the dead alone. Breakdowns occurred in society, and kingdoms struggled with civil unrest and a never-ending stream of refugees.

Mariel Bluegale has lived a relatively uneventful life. Largely sheltered from prejudice by her parents Serin and Arwaro, she grew up in a kingdom that prospered thanks to its strictly neutral policy. But the winds of war are once more on the horizon. Peace is merely the prelude to a new, even bigger conflict, one which may be decided on the identity of one.

 

Release schedule: One chapter a week for the forseeable future. Reality caught up with me, this means I have to scale back my writing time considerably. I promise to finish it, but it will be in pieces, and likely around holidays.

As always, any -painful- errors (spelling, flow, consistency or time) please let me know.

Soulstone: The Skeleton King

Soulstone: The Skeleton King

When Aaron and his friends got sucked into the virtual reality game World of Ruul, they quickly realized the only way out would be to acquire all eight soulstones and beat the game.

Unfortunately, they’ve somehow managed to incur the wrath of the Skeleton King, an ancient warrior whose vengeance can only be quenched by blood and death.

Now, if they want to survive long enough to find those soulstones, they’ll have to find a way to stop him.

The Laughing Dungeon

The Laughing Dungeon

Dungeons have rules. Laws, set down in ages past by their creator, a brilliant archmage who came to a tragic end while creating the first Arcane Intelligence or A.I. When a nameless mage tries to create a new type of dungeon using the soul of the Fae Courts famous trickster, Puck, everything goes very, very wrong. A new dungeon is born and the rules mean nothing.
