Original Action Adventure Psychological Sci-fi Reincarnation Supernatural Magic Profanity Gore

In the near future scientists have discovered a very real threat to the earth brought on by massive solar flares.  With anarchy spreading, the governments of the world have banded together in order to prepare for the worst. Building disaster vaults, and designating safety zones in order to protect lawful citizens and the world's elites.

After a chain of catastrophic events, beings known as Ultrasapiens, arise from the ashes of the old world.  In essence, they are a transcendence of human evolution fused with a primal will of instinct.  These individuals are able to reclaim their physical selves, to pursue a road laid out before them by something bigger than us all.  

Struggling to piece together everything that happened, the Ultrasapiens learn that there is much more to the universe than ever thought possible.  They will discover the key role that they, and the Earth truly play for the future.  Two forces strive for dominance.  One encourages the will of natural growth, letting the universe flow to its own design.  The other controls with a forceful manipulation, shaping reality to a designed outcome.  Religion is met with science, faith met by truth, and fiction with reality.

Yulian Smith has found himself in quite the predicament. Working his best to turn his father's dying business into a well respect establishment and finishing his dream to craft the world's best sword was hard enough.

"Learning how to ride a bike hardly compares to burning monsters to a crisp by throwing concentrated spheres of magical fire at them. Wouldn’t you agree?"

Everyone breaks away from their mundane daily life in one way or another. Our protagonist being no different, often escaped the reality by writing stories about adventures in an alternate world of swords and magic. Though he recognized the difference between reality and imagination, he could've never imagined what would happen, when the line between the two blurred, and his escapism fantasy became all too real...

But after he came to, he would soon learn that things aren't quite as he remembered them to be. What in the world has happened to his dearest creation?

A wise minotaur without a name once said, "Write your own damn Iseka– I mean, LitRPG!" and so this story came to be. The author is a man of many questionable qualities, including, but certainly not limited to, laziness, a dull sense of humor, an insatiable thirst and general incompetence. These qualities may or may not be reflected in the story, the world and the characters. Please proceed with caution.

With the necessities out of the way, any constructive criticism is very much welcome, and I'll do my best to take it into account when writing future chapters.

So What If I'm Trash? Who Needs Cultivation?!

Original Action Adventure Fantasy Sci-fi Cyberpunk Reincarnation Martial Arts Supernatural Male Lead Secret Identity Magic Anti-Hero Lead Strategy Wuxia Profanity

Qing Shan Long. They say he isn't human. An escaped experiment from some government facility, a reincarnation of a saint, a freakish superhuman. Whatever he was one thing was clear. Be it Music, Martial Arts, Science, whatever he does he excels. He was a whimsical man. A great man. A man who craving for knowledge and excitement knows no bounds, whose collection of books and personal library would even make Alexander the Great green with envy. He donated to all manners of charities and funded many projects for helping the poor and disabled.

A self made man who single handedly founded one of the largest corporations in the world, Wen Qu Technologies, whose influences reach from vast fields of expertise. From objects of war such as the newest aircrafts, droids, and body armor; to life saving medicine and vaccines; to even the mundane such as video games and the fast food industry. A legendary example of determination and hard work. He was in his car being driven to a business meeting to disclose a deal that would help ensure the country could have access to clean energy and help reduce the pollution that has been plaguing his homeland for the past millenia when he was assassinated and woke up in a strange new world. How will Qing Shan deal with his new environment where the strong suppresses the weak? From the top of the world he suddenly finds himself free falling to rock bottom. Unable to cultivate, a weak body, and all but disowned by his family.

 

(For those who read comics and watch cartoons, imagine him as being Tony Stark, Richard Reeds, Jimmy Neutron, etc level of 'Genius'. )

 

My own spin on some familar tropes. Another reincarnation into another world story. The MC will take over the body of someone with a trash body that can't cultivate and will be hated and neglected by his family. Pretty typical so far right? Except there won't be some amazing miracle to heal our MC, there isn't some magical grandpa to teach him some OP thing which only his trash body can use, there isn't a hidden op bloodline, and he is not from a super amazing assassin clan or genius doctor. He isn't the chosen one, he's just a guy trying his best to make something with a crap situation. First attempt at a wuxia type story!

I like playing with common tropes, maybe adding a twist, to playing it straight as a classic. I have absolutely no idea where this is going to take me but please do give your input and I'll do my best so that everyone has a say in where our journey will go.

I'll admit the only knowledge I have of chinese history and ancient society is from reading light novels translated to english and some old dramas, so if I make some social passe just take it as because this is another world, not exactly an AU where magic and stuff actually exist. I'm also not actually Chinese and will basically using google to help me with names and other such, if I make a mistake please let me know!

Earth. It's a weird place, isn't it? Well I can tell you this, it's about to get a hell of a lot weirder. What's Earth without some magic? Not that good, if you ask me. Is science necessarily the only way to get better technology? 

What about the fighting? The strict rules that are so very lenient? What kind of culture has been growing within Earth this whole time? How long has it been growing? 

Join me on our journey, where we will read the story of Danny Styles and his inconvenient quest. Blood and despair? Death that's not very fair? A cult in a frightening lair? All included...

A new world comprised of individuals with abilities of the supernatural, genetically enhanced traits and even the so called magicians in legend?

A/N: After 3 years of immersing myself in the world of light novels both Japanese and Chinese, I will try my hand at creating one. This is my first project of such a scale. Any feedback/criticism is appreciated. I just hope that my time reading MTL doesn’t degenerate my grammar and spelling. lol. I also noticed this synopsis sounds kind of generic. Once I get further into the story, I might update it to make it less general. Just don't want to spoil anything. :v

LiMB is a work of fiction inspired by webnovels such as "Re:Zero - Starting life in another world" and visual novels such as "Fate/Stay night" or "Sengoku Rance"

Not unlike a visual novel LiMB has two main routes branching out from the the first chapter, with additional routes being added as the story progresses. There are also "ending routes", spinoffs or dead-ends that still need to be told. 

There is no recommended reading order, although a chapter in one path may shed light on another. 

When a choice appears in a chapter that choice will be branded as (R1), (R2) or (SR) for a special offshot ending. 

I hope you will enjoy this, more art will be added along the way // grunt

What happens when someone die? Obviously, they reincarnate, sometimes they get to revisit worlds they have lived before sometimes new, so do good or bad deeds matter? No, it definitely does, chances of being reborn into what your desire increase, or if your bad into what you hate. Each life is supposed to be a learning process for your soul to make amends to fight for what you believe in. Some souls are tainted and they continue to taint themselves and the others around, so too does the opposite happen. Kindred souls are drawn together and they can bring calamity or salvation to their respective worlds. But what does this have to do with the story well, our friend Alexander is reborn into a world of magic but of course that’s not enough to mention him, no the true reason we will follow his story is because much like there are those who claim to remember their past life, he truly does have a head start in his case.

Author's Note: Thanks for taking your time to read my first try at writing. English is my first language, so please correct me on anything that sounds wrong or spelled wrong. I'll try to write it once a week, sometimes more if I feel like I’m on a roll but please I hope this stays a pleasant experience for us both.
