Journey of my Core

Journey of my Core

Original Adventure Fantasy LitRPG Sci-fi Anti-Hero Lead Gore Traumatising content GameLit Dungeon

I have a hard time referring anything that I write to as 'Original'. The longer we as a species exist the harder it is to be truly original, I am certainly influenced by all that I read and watch Including but not limited to J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, and all of the stories here on Royal Road. 

From the start the MC is only able to comprehend the most basic of what is impacting it with very little to no understanding of the MC's surroundings. 

There may be updates in the future, but I am in no way a consistant writer.

The Elemental Arena

The Elemental Arena

Original Action Adventure Fantasy LitRPG Sci-fi Portal Fantasy / Isekai Male Lead Magic Gore GameLit Dungeon

The time for the trials has come, pitting the mortal species of the galaxy against one another.  By surviving challenges, clearing dungeons, and defeating rival species, the players can make themselves stronger and smarter.  But only one species will be declared the winner.

Earth has finally qualified...

...and participation is mandatory.  

A twenty-nine year old accountant works together with a group of internationally diverse players to survive.  Learning synergistic skills and using teamwork, can humanity acheive an upset?  If they don't, their lives are forfeit.

 

 

Author's note:  My goal is to post one lengthy chapter a week on Wednesdays.  Chapters will be anywhere from 4k to 10k in words, varying based on the plot beats instead of specific word counts.  Teamwork will be a major focus of my book.  This isn’t a story about an overpowered MC soloing bosses while the newbies look on in awe.  I'm trying something a little different, hoping to capture the essence of how real people would react to their situation. 

I’m a first time author seeking constructive criticism.  I’ve been a reader of litRPG since 2015 and the genre has inspired me to try my own hand at writing, albeit with a more rational take I hope.  While I make my own editing passes before I post, my story has not been professionally edited yet. Please keep that in mind as you read and comment.  If the story gains enough traction I will be looking towards hiring an editor and commissioning cover art. 

Warnings: mild PG-rated language, graphic violence and gore, and graphic medical content.
