This is a random assortment of stories. Like, really random. If you like one of the chapters, don't expect to feel similarly about a different one. Topics covered include playing in the woods, dreamlike thought streams, and accidentally (?) skinning a pet puppy. Many chapters will consist of an image containing the chapter's text and some drawings. The text will usually be hard to read. Might eventually add an easy to read text version alongside the image if there is enough interest. Updates are whenever I feel like. As a collection, it can't really have an end. But I'll prob stop posting after a few chapters.

Starting from a single cell, Phyris begins her journey through the annuls of time as the progenitor of an uncountable number of races. She begins only as an observer, she works her way to become impossible, but also complete. A hivemind, yet singular. Ancient, yet entirely naive. An alpha, but also an omega.

Phyris learns that she is too naive when humanity needed her most.

This story works within the GDA Multiverse.

Note that the story starts out as a science fiction, as MC is still bound by the physics of Earth in the first arc.

I had thought about the most OP MC I could imagine and this is what popped out from inspiration. Of course, the benefits are not incredibly obvious in the beginning, but her abilities scale. The focus of the first arc is to make her more human in some ways.

Posted on Wattpad too, so that I can have all of these beautiful images and a mirror site.

I was born and lived inside a virtual game world, till I was tricked by the Great Administrator and got kicked out to the Real World for my bad mouth!

I am Athanasios, a citizen of the virtual game world of Elysium. The world I'm living in, is a paradise or that's what everyone says. It's boring and all day I'm forced to play games like Tetris to mine virtual coins. That's the only way to buy new avatars or expand my dungeon tower, the only two things that actually matter to me.

However, everything changed when I received a strange message saying I can try a new game experience. But there was a catch! Instead, I was tricked and transferred to the real world. Things aren't that much different from the virtual world: Goblins plague the villages, dragons tear down cities and adventurers try to loot dungeons. 

In fact, this world is better than expected! So realistic and not to mention that for the first time in my gaming life, I managed to multiclass from level-1. You see, I drank the blood of a Vampire Lord by mistake and became a vampire mage once I got here. The problem is that I wasn't meant to drink his blood and now he and his minions hunt me. At least, most of them identify as hot, so no reason to complain on that either. What troubles me however, is that there's no exit button from the Real World and the only way to get back to my world is by finishing the missions I was tasked.

Warning: This novel contains harem elements, strong language and graphic violence.

In its most fundamental, and some argue most powerful form, Magic is the art of understanding. It requires no technology, no wands or staffs, and no spells other than the mage himself and his understanding of reality. The physical sounds of spells and the intricate dance of rituals were merely mnemonic devices, an abstraction meant to help the practitioner take a glimpse at the fabric of reality itself. Indeed, magic stands in stark contrast to the lower arts of sorcery, alchemy, voodoo, divination, and conjuring, for a mage can cast cataclysmic incantations impossible by other methods. And so it was that the greatest mages in these days were the ones blessed with the greatest perception, memory, and intelligence. Yet so complex were the invocations that all were forced to specialize and even those most devoted to their training at The Academy or The Lyceum might hope in a lifetime to have adequate recollection of three True Spells, or four most. Ordinary wizards content themselves with two, and it was not uncommon for the village mage to know only one, or even none.

But among these precursors of magic there was an exception. A genius of vast intellect, prodigious memory, and inhuman perception who came to be known as the Invoker. A man who not only mastered all the lower arts, but also learned not four, not five, but ten spells. But before there was the Invoker, there was Carl. This is not the story of how a man reshaped our understanding of magic, how he fought a fundamental, nor how he rediscovered the Sempiternal Cantrap – the only know invocation of immortality. But rather, this is the story of how he came to be. This is about how he befriended the future Grand Magus, King of Skywrath, and an Ancient, all three of whom help him become who he is.

 

[Note 1] I will try to go for weekly chapters, but school is busy for an IB student. [Note 2] Yes, this is set in the world of Dota2. No, it’s not a fanfic, I am not going to be trying to squish in characters for not reason, and it supposed to be read like a normal fantasy story. [Note 3] I try to spell-check these but mistakes will appear. Please leave any suggestions in the chapter comments.

I'm a huge fan of Heroes of Might and Magic 3. During a binge read of a fan fic. I thought 'I wonder if somebody done a fan-fic of HOM&M,' so I searched up RR and I quickly read a wuxia story with the title. I got two chapters in and I realized it wasn't what I thought it was. Yeah!, that's right. I didn't read the Synopsis. I probably wouldn't read this one either if I was you. However, I want to get this across to people because I think it's important.

 

I'm telling the story in a way that, even if don't you know about HOM&M, you can still read it. So please enjoy my below average story telling, thanks.
