The Emerald Amulet

The Emerald Amulet

Between the inhospitable Fairwoods and the even more inhospitable Wastes lies the city-state of Flax, ruled by dozens of perpetually squabbling factions. When Artemisia, the leader of one of these factions, receives an emerald amulet, it draws her, her girlfriend Neith, and several allies into a quest through the many factions of Flax and even into Flint, the city's underground twin, as she searches for the amulet's origin and its connection to her long-forgotten past. 

Henshin Sisters

Henshin Sisters

Estella, Anja and Natalia Kendrick are three normal university students living in the fairly unassuming town of Angel Bay, Australia. However, when their town comes under attack by a supernatural evil, they are each bestowed a set of special powers and equipment, and they and their closest friends (and a couple of aliens) have to band together to stop this mysterious threat.

Unfortunately, due to an even worse threat approaching the Earth, they're cut off from any additional aid, and have to deal with the problem themselves, along with the intervention of a secretive government agency trying to keep the paranormal under wraps and a nosy reporter trying to get her hands on her breakout scoop. And then there are other supernatural elements coming out of the woodwork...



Henshin Sisters is a scifi-fantasy-hybrid story, inspired by anime, comics, video games and Brandon Sanderson novels. In particular, a more mature take on "henshin heroes", including tokusatu and magical girls, with a heavy emphasis on worldbuilding, and a bit of naughtiness here and there.

Rogue

Rogue

Once, Gods had existed in our world. 

However, the gods began to turn against themselves, until there were just two remaining, once in the hundreds. The souls of the dead God's were fragmented and gifted to the mortals that served the Gods, granting them powers known as the Arts. 

These remaining Gods grew sick of the world and attempted to conquer it, leaving the mortals to fight back against them, leading to the creation of the Guild. 

Among the Guild's ranks, a legend is often spoke of a man who singlehandedly defeated hundreds of thousands of the gods' troops; his name, Rogue.

Sofia is given the task of removing her father from the throne so that the gnome people can be freed from their cruel king.

Reincarnated Into A Cultivation World - My Unique Cheat Is Too Powerful!

Reincarnated Into A Cultivation World - My Unique Cheat Is Too Powerful!

I pushed aside a random country bumpkin who walked right into the face of a truck. Unfortunately, being an otaku (but I'm actually extremely smart, I've never lost a single mark in my life) my athletics was waaay subpar. My ankle decided that it was a good time to get sprained, and yaaay! I died, run over by a 3-ton metal monster.

Apparently, that country bumpkin was God, who had accidentally fell asleep mid-creation and caused the world to be this shitty, without any magic he originally planned to introduce into the world. Apparently, he introduced magical culture and magical tales, but before he could introduce magic itself in his sleep he hit 'Submit' instead of 'Edit' in the World Editor...

Long story short, now I get to go to another world for saving him!

Time to show off my amazing otaku skills!

P.S.: For those of you wondering what's wrong with the character of this otaku, he's just maintaining sarcasm mode. 

His Soul is Marching On to Another World; or, the John Brown Isekai

His Soul is Marching On to Another World; or, the John Brown Isekai

“They hung him for a traitor, themselves a traitorous crew,
But his soul is marching on.”

The land of Gemeinplatz is a land filled with fantastical creatures, adventurers looking to slay them, and heroes looking to distinguish themselves from the adventurers. The most common of these heroes are those who come from Earth, who enjoy a most leisurely time with their cheat skills. It’s a perfect world, the utopia of those who wish to become overpowered and get their own power fantasy, where even the most everyman of the everyman can pull themselves by their bootstraps and become a hero.

Yet, underneath this “Gemeinplatzer Dream” is a disgusting truth.

To satisfy the needs of heroes who can’t find function like a normal human being (which most of them can’t), the lucrative Gemeinplatz slave trade crushes the dreams and ruins the lives of hundreds every day. These slaves endlessly labor, in the harems of so-called heroes, at the mansions of the landowning “heroes”, as rare materials for various magical spells.

In a world that looks down at them as demi-human, where the ruling class has no incentive to end this profitable trade, in which their oppressors are overpowered as all hell, what hope is there for the slaves?

What hope is there, is named John Brown. This time, he’ll finish what he started.


This story is meant to be a more fast-paced, silly short story, written while I take a break from my main project, The Errant Otherworlder Watanabe. Yet, I have put in as much care as anything I produce into this work.

I hope that you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. I’ll update it whenever I can at a minimum of a chapter per week until it is completed.

The Cyphers' Chronicles; A Soul's Symphony

The Cyphers' Chronicles; A Soul's Symphony

The universe is a vast and complicated place, full of forces that most beings will never be able to comprehend. Among these forces are the Cyphers, the universe's power elite. Their priority is given to every soul in the universe.

But what happens when a soul becomes trapped in an endless cycle of reincarnation? Even the Cyphers become frustrated. Such is the fate of the soul who last lived as Sienna. As a result, the soul is exiled to a place where it has no place. Perhaps this time, it can break the cycle.

Not all Cyphers, however, are pleased with this decision. An old wound is reborn, giving life to a new battle. A head-to-head showdown ensues among the Cyphers, and it quickly becomes apparent that the situation is spiraling out of control.

What will become of the soul? Will the Cyphers be able to find common cosmos, or will everything eventually go to s**t?

HARTFORD

HARTFORD

HARTFORD is the tale of the Schreffler family, the fabulously wealthy but scandalously dysfunctional owners of New England's oldest zipper factory. 

When no-nonsense Patriarch Jeffrey Johannes Schreffler announces his intentions to hold an extraordinary tenth wedding anniversary celebration for himself and his beloved second wife Puppies, the reactions from his adult children (still bitter over his quick remarriage after their mother's untimely supposed death and disappearance years ago) is far from supportive. Even Puppies herself seems uneasy about the plans, and the servants appear to be shooting one another knowing glances.

It is clear the Schrefflers have their share of startling secrets and suspicious suppositions  about one another. And juicy drama? There is no shortage of that either....

No Heroes There

No Heroes There

Superheroes. Everyone loves them. But how many Heroes enjoy being one?

Chetachi could describe himself in one word: disaffected. He'd bungled his entrance exams; work had never been harder; and his mom stretched herself thin, struggling to keep the family afloat. His powers had come as a stroke of good fortune in that regard. Government Supers were paid. And great wealth meant he could stop being a deadbeat brother and son.

However, life as a Super came with more problems than it solved. How long could he keep living on the edge? And what could he do to ensure the safety of his family?


A/N: This piece was inspired by Wildbow's amazing web serial: Worm. He'd piqued my interest with the African cape Moord Nag. As a Nigerian, I decided to tackle a superhero story based in my country.

What started as a light-hearted submission for a writing prompt spiraled into a more complex project. So if you find yourself intrigued, pop in and take a peek. You're a Super now.
