Not your average player

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 ).

Irregular Elementalist

Irregular Elementalist

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"""".

Metamorphosis

Metamorphosis

Original
It has been five years since VR was first introduced, and now that the developers have grown used to it, the games are getting better. It has reached the point where VR games are almost common. Into this market, a mid-sized developer, which had yet to move into the VR games, released a new VRMMORPG. Unlike the others, this game has not been talked about at all, because no one knows anything about it. At the initial announcement, six months beforehand, the internet was filled with speculation, but as time went on, and nothing - no information, no videos, not even a screenshot - was leaked, the fervor died out. Then came the day of the release.
