It was a beautiful evening... that day.

Our family was in our summer vacation. Currently we are residing to my grandfather's house near the mountains.

The breeze of the forest... hmmm... puah!, was so refreshing. If possible I would like to stay and live here but its not. I have a responsibility to take. A responsibility that any elder brother should do...

Everworld

Everworld

Original
A New Game is on the market.

Everworld, until then Virtual Reality was only an Idea but the Company RocketScience made it happen and that without any prior notice. A world with 1.2 Billion People playing it sure is tough competition.


An Original Story I wrote before i even stumbled upon LMS. Revised a bit after getting new ideas from LMS.
Alter Life

Alter Life

Original
“Just 7 more days” the young man though.
“7 more days until the capsule arrives and perhaps then I will be able to find what I am missing”
Even he was not sure what he was searching for. All he wanted was to find something that would fill the emptiness, to find the missing pieces of the puzzle that was his heart.
“Alter Life”: a new beginning, a brand new world, a second chance at life. A different world brought about by the wonderful new technology of virtual reality. A world where the blind can see, the deaf can hear and the cripples can walk, a world where the poor can be wealthy and the cowards can be brave.
That at least was what all the advertisements were saying. The first virtual game to ever be released, promised a fully immersive environment and had the whole gaming world drooling.
The young man expected only to be disappointed, but a tiny flicker of hope was born in his heart, something that was never there before.
The Fallen

The Fallen

Original Action Adventure Fantasy Romance Tragedy
Time goes forward. You can't change the past, but you can change your future. However you can't predict it. Everyday in any matter you face a choice. You go left, you can't go right.


To have something means you can't have another thing of the same value, at the same time. Your actions define you, and your mistakes can haunt you till the end of your days.


After almost a thousand years. A man awakens. Not to redeem himself, but to have his REVENGE.


[I started this when I was entering the university. Now that I have finished the first year and have free time, I'll be updating new chapters (and may change the first ones).]

Expect some errors, since English isn't my first language.

Original Action Adventure Virtual Reality
There are many players in the world of Royal Road. Some are great heroes famous across the lands, and some prefer to roam free while staying unknown. Their reasons for playing the game differ as well - for fun, for money. But what if there is one, who is neither of those? One, who did not start playing on his own accord, but rather was chosen by the AI governing the Versailles? One whose only distinct quality is that no matter how hard you look, there is none else like him?

PS. Please note that offensive language or content MAY (not necessarily will) be present (probably only a little bit of language ).

Curiosity and Greed.

Humans naturally possess such behavior.
They are both double-edged swords ready to slash our back if we let our guard down for just a moment.
In the positive perspective, these two led us to where we are right now.

And the biggest product of the two combined is the Technology on its own.

In the study of Medicine and Computers, Technology has its vast impact where more and more advance surgeries, practices, and experiments can now be executed.

But the downside of this is that, such advancement also led us to the point where we even use our own species as test subjects for our inhumane experiments.

Set in the Planet of Ezpheuris or Earth where """"Mana"""" is abundant and only the gifted ones can control such element.

Follow the story of Erol Frousche and his adventures as the """"Irregular Elementalist"""".

No beating scarecrows or other forms of grinding for him!
Will be of mixed race. With Undead and probably other dark races.

No need to re-invent the wheel.
