(this is my first novel so there will be mistakes but I will learn as I go)

(Also currently publishing on web novel, though my intentions will be that Royal Road will be my long-term platform.)

Insatiable hunger

Insatiable hunger

In the midst of the Apocalypse, there is one who refuses to die at the cost of insatiable hunger. Will he lose his sanity and become just another zombie in the undead horde or will he rise up and become a beacon for humanity in a time of despair.

(So this is my second novel I am writing I came up randomly while working on my other story. I will update both at least once a work or more. There will be some graphic violence such as gore and graphic sexual content. Welcome to the Apocalypse)

(As I stated in my other novel Living Armor, I also currently have some chapters posted on web novel under the same penname Apocalypse2025, and it is my intention for Royal Road to be my main platform)

Reality Warped

Reality Warped

Once a being has lived long enough, you've either seen so much you've gotten bored and have decided to try dying to see if that would be fun, or you went insane, and have killed probably around a galaxy or 2, including yourself. The Reality Warper race has been around since the dawn of time itself existed, helping create the many wonders of the universe, sharing their wisdom, and helping all. That was at the beginning. After countless eons, their race started becoming bored with the same old shtick, so...they decided to try new things. Weapons, war, mass destruction. They wreaked havoc, with nobody able to stop them with powers beyond mortal comprehension. Soon after that, came the boringness of time, once again. They've tried everything, and some either decided to off themselves, to see if that was worthwhile, and others went insane, destroying everything in sight until they were either stopped by one of their own or stopped by themselves. After even more countless years... there was only one left. He wasn't always the most creative of their kind, or the most powerful, but he was the most stable. He enjoyed disguising himself as a mortal race and living out different lives. He found that, while it could get tedious, he had more fun than not. So after even more countless eons and years...he stumbled on a planet that the natives called Earth, and decided it would be fun to disguise himself as one of them. At the same time, humanity at the year 2030, in-depth virtual reality has just been released. This is a story about a being that's seen and done far too much with powers greater than a god, and his little adventure on a planet called Earth.

P.S. Some of the tags like Gender Bender, are there because, whether you deny it or not, if you had the power greater than god, you'd totally at least see how it is on the other side. Also, the MC is totally Overpowered in every way, shape, and form, so if that's not your cup of tea, sorry, my piece has just sent your's back home.

P.P.S...expect the 4th wall to...not exist.

Crimson Heels

Crimson Heels

A short murder story. This is my first published story so this story is prone to mistakes.

Chosen of the Veiled God (Rewrite)

Chosen of the Veiled God (Rewrite)

Death March Mercenary Company, a bunch of misfits, outcasts and psychopaths.

The smallest and most ruthless group to call the Free Cities their home. If one really wants the job done in the most brutally efficient way, they are the people to hire. Few make the mistake to not pay them and fewer do not honour their contracts with them.

Theirs is a world of assassination, murder and theft, governed only by their own mad code of conduct… and the will of the last god to walk the mortal realm.

The Veiled God has found its new toys, its new chosen ones.


This is an edited and rewritten version of the original story 'Chosen of the Veiled God: Death March' which I posted here on Royal Road back in 2018.

The new version of the story is similar to the original, although some motivation, plotlines (both minor and major) and characters have been changed, expanded or removed. In total, I've added 13.000 words (about 3 chapters worth of text) to the one from 2018. I plan to have this version of the story self-published on Amazon by 15 March 2021. Because of this, I am posting this as a new submission so that everyone can enjoy it. You are also welcomed to buy the book when it is available.

There will be a new chapter every day around 12:00 PM (noon) GMT/UTC +0. 

Of Men and Dragons, Book 2

Of Men and Dragons, Book 2

Jack, S'haar, and all their family are back. After crashing his ship on an underdeveloped world, Jack found friends and family among the terrifying cat-lizard natives of the world, but now mere survival is no longer enough. They must carve out a new home for themselves in the landscape of the now rapidly changing world. Raiders, politics, and even nature threaten their happiness and their lives while they struggle to deal with the nightmares and traumas of yesterday. They'll need to depend on each other more than ever if they hope for their new home to have any kind of future.

In case you missed it, here's book one.

ATTENTION: This is soft sci-fi rather than hard sci-fi, hence why I chose that tag. For those of you unfamiliar with the distinction, here's what Wikipedia had to say. 

1. It explores the "soft" sciences, and especially the social sciences (for example, anthropology, sociology, or psychology), rather than engineering or the "hard" sciences (for example, physics, astronomy, or chemistry).

2. It is not scientifically accurate or plausible; the opposite of hard science fiction.

Soft science fiction of either type is often more concerned with character and speculative societies, rather than speculative science or engineering. The term first appeared in the late 1970s and is attributed to Australian literary scholar Peter Nicholls.

Magic-Farming

Magic-Farming

A thought experiment gone out of control, inspired by kosnik4's popular story, Magic-Smithing. 

What would life be like for someone else who was transported to the world inside Magic-Smithing? Someone who wasn't as prone to encounter incresasingly dangerous people, whose life was a little less chaotic?

What if this person was content with a simple life of farming? Tending to the plants, sowing seeds, and reaping a great harvest at the end of the year. 

Of course, he's also a data scientist, so he can't help but squeeze out the maximum possible efficiency of his time and the potential of his attributes. Who doesn't make excel spreadsheets in their spare time? 

This is a slightly more "Slice of Life" esque version of kosnik4's story. Hopefully lighthearted, funny, and as enjoyable to read as it is thinking of increasingly ridiculous skill progressions. Thanks to kosnik4 and Magic-Smithing for providing fertile grounds for creativity to thrive.

NOTE: THIS IS A FAN FICTION, AND ALL INTELLECTUAL RIGHTS BELONG TO KOSNIK4.

I'm a patron of his story, and love reading about what happens next in his story. I've tried my best to be as accurate to his canon science as possible, though it's not 100% feasible. Afterall, the story isn't even done yet! 

My plan for the releases is to release a single chapter a day until 3/7, and then release 4 chapters a week on M, W, F, & Sat.

P.S. If anyone can figure out what the EXACT formula for Level XP is, I'd love to hear it. I'm starting to doubt my math and excel capabilities. I have an equation that is fairly accurate and stays close to his values, but not exactly the same. 

No More Mr. Lawful-Good (Villain LitRPG)

No More Mr. Lawful-Good (Villain LitRPG)

He's no more Mr. Lawful-Good. Let's greet our new friend - Mr. Chaotic-Evil! Join our side - we have cookies and hot succubi! 

Meet Kyle Goodwill - a man who hates his life. He always tried to be a nice person - not a nice guy, mind you - but it led him to nothing but disappointment. 

The last straw was the betrayal of his girlfriend and supposed friends. His Lawful-Good Paladin in Warscape Online - the newest cutting edge VRMMO promising unnatural level of realism and immersion - permanently died under their sinister plot. His hope to become a pro-gamer and leave his shitty job as an autonomic road traffic regulator was completely crushed. 

One month later, after a particularly shitty day, Kyle logs into Warscape Online with only one purpose - to escape his terrible reality and, for once, do whatever the Hell he wants, consequences be damned. So when, at the character creation screen, the game offers him to become Dark Elf - a Hidden Race of outcasts with Impossible playing difficulty - he accepts. His pent-up emotions further make him join bloodlusty cultists, just for shit and giggles. Little did he knew that his Chaotically Evil actions would lead to the opportunity of a  lifetime - a powerful entity inside the game takes an interest in him and makes an offer the Player couldn't refuse even if he wants to. 

Now, set on the path of The Ultimate Villain, Kyle is going to find out that maybe he wasn't meant to be one of the good guys - that perhaps the role of the bad guy suits him way better.

Lesser Evil: Another Glass of Dying Stars

Lesser Evil: Another Glass of Dying Stars

Audry Forge was one to make the distinction between considering an opinion and not caring about one at all. There was no in-between. In a perfect world, an alcoholic, hedonistic, mentally abusive individual like him could never coincide with his attempts to stop the extinction of life. But there was no perfect world. There was no other person. Only the lesser of evils. 

War God for Hire- Gladiator

War God for Hire- Gladiator

Kyle was living his dream life as a pro-ball player. He was on top of the world and had sacrificed
relationships, friends, and even family to get to that point. His drive was singular in its focuse and
intent on one thing: winning. 

That all changed when a snubbed ex-gf took matters into her own had. 

Kyle's life path tracked similar choices to Krig, Verden's war god. Both rose to great heights and
then were pulled down by failed relationships. 

Now Kyle has a second chance whether he wants it or now. He will become the reincarnated
War God. Will he have what it takes to succeed again? To avoid jealous divine siblings? Will he have
learned the value of relationships?
