Original Action Adventure Fantasy LitRPG Male Lead Magic Gore Satire

Xanthos is an ex-military slacker. He is highly intelligent and loves to learn new things. He is currently working in a steel recycling mill and his past times include hanging out with his best friend and sleeping. His best friend, that he met while in the military, is much more driven and has no time for anything but work and hanging out with his best friend. Drew (the BF) is experimenting with a new computer simulation and asks Xanthos to help out with the development (due to his unique background and because Drew trusts him more than anyone). Xanthos agrees, because he can't say no, and is immediately thrown into a strange new world of imminent danger, where they quickly find out that they don't have control, and can't get out.

Children of the Sun

Children of the Sun

Original Action Horror Profanity Gore Traumatising content

Clad in steel and stars, they march forth. Born of fire and raised in war. These children, small and fragile, they lack the grace of God. Exist in spite of the almighty creator's will. They have not strength, through which they can power through every conflict. They are not many, a wave of bodies that can overwhelm any foe. They are not powerful, and can not bend reality to their whim. They haven't a collective concsiousness, and true coordination is lost to them. They haven't the technology to destroy stars, they haven't the innovation to adapt to every situation.

But they march on anyways. When the whole of creation despises them, when God himself demands their deaths, they rise up unfettered. For their will is unbroken, their soul ever-burning. And with fire and fury they rise up against the universe itself. They are unbreakable. They are unstoppable. They are unkillable.

They are The Children of the Sun, and woe to those who seek their demise.

I used to be a big gang boss. We were called the black tiger gang, we had it all money fame and we're living the good life. One time, an enemy gang attacked us and raided us. They killed all of our friends. They stole our things. They raped out sisters and killed them. 

Those bastards caught me and fed me to crocodiles. The last thing they said to me was "the strong devour the weak!". That fraise was embed into my soul. It makes me strive to become strong. I vowed to come back to life and kill those bastards work or God. 

To my surprise, I woke up and found out, I had become a goblin. A skinny one at that. I trained hard, used all of my skills and took on the world. My aim is to become a god and kill the bastards that did that to me. They better wish they died before they meet me.

The Favoured

The Favoured

Original Adventure Fantasy Female Lead Strong Lead Magic Anti-Hero Lead High Fantasy Mythos

Magic and fantastical beasts run wild on the countless worlds of the Fabric. Deities take an active interest in the Fabric. The Favoured, immortal mages of immense power vie for territory and power in the Fabric.

Umbra a naive ward of the Duke is almost Grown and that means she will need to take an apprenticeship. The issue is she isn't particularly good at anything and if she is not picked by a master she will be thrown to the street to provide for herself. Fortunately, she meets one of the Masters on a night out of the Duke's fortress. He takes a liking to her and teaches her magic. This is a story of Umbra's growth into something more than the girl she was.

Updates will be at least a chapter a week.

Notable Location Poliagoras.

Poliagoras is the most important world in the Fabric partly due to it being the centre of everything both literally and metaphorically. Trade, commerce, travel, and politics are all conducted primarily on Poliagoras, it has the biggest city in the fabric stretching to cover almost the entire world. It also holds all the known Great portals in the Fabric which are the only way to travel to other worlds.  Even without these things, Poliagoras would still be the most important world in the Fabric as it is home to the largest population of Favoured. They were mages chosen by the Deities and given the potential to become more than mortal. 

 

I cannot overstate how appreciated constructive criticism is. This is the first piece of writing I have written of my own volition so even a small improvement that I could make would go a long way in helping me to improve my writing. Which is partly the goal of this story.

 

The current title is most definitely a working one. I know it isn't great.

At a young age, Will was paralyzed from the neck down. As life went on, he continued to lose all hope that anything could be done.

On his seventeenth birthday, his family is contacted by an up and coming startup working in virtual reality and AI. They promise that inside their new VRMMORPG, Will would be able to feel again.

Move again. 

And all they require is an NDA, and the ability to move Will into their state of the art medical facility to monitor him as he tests the new equipment alongside their burgeoning AI. It sounds almost too good to be true, but Will's condition is only worsening, and so they hastily agree. 

 

With a disorientating flash of light, and a brighter smile, for the first time in a decade, Will sprints through the dark building he's found himself in..

A savage cackle and a terrified scream...

"At least I can move again," I thought.

I ended it all on a whim.

I'd never really been attached to my life, but I havn't wanted to cause undue stress or sadness to those around me, so I stayed. However, once upon a daytime, a whimsy came upon me, an excitable happy whimsy, where I was away with the fae, and I had no cares or worries in the world, it was beautifull and delightfull, and never before had I loved those around me more, however there is an end to everything, even happines, and so, as the darkness and depths of numbness and procrastination loomed, I decided that I could not return, be it over my dead body that i return to the numbness of before, and I knew myself quite well you see, I knew it would only be a matter of time before I surrendered myself, as there is nothing more insidious than numbness you see, so, I knew I had to take drastic measures. 

And now I'm here, in a world I'd always dreamed of. I'm a peasant here, I'm poor, I'm weak, and the only people I matter to are my friends and family and it is delightfull, it is one of the best feelings to exist in this state, where numbness cannot exist.           And the system, oh the system, it feels like an old friend after all the stories, one that you sit back with and relax, it is the greatest motivator I have ever had to simply watch your skills improve and see tiny improvements quantified, and it is even more enjoyable to try and find loopholes, to find the seams in the system and play with them, watching others see them is a truly beautiful experience.

Author- Hi all, this is my 3rd story on here, I'm trying to get better at writing, and hope to one day become an author full time, I'm going to make a patreon at some point, but I won't be hiding chapters in it I don't think, I don't know what incentives I'll have if I'm being honest, I just know that I'm going to try my best, and if I disapear for months and stop posting, I've probably surrendered myself, so, apologies from me in advance. Also, a big thank you to anyone reading and please leave a review with your opinion "-) 

(Also also, anyone who feels like the character in my story feels, please note that this is entirely a work of art, and sadly this world is truly merely a dream, I love you all, and my dms are always open for chats)
