Dungeonovel: Without Creatures, Through Iron and Steel.

Original Action LitRPG Reincarnation Magic Strategy

Dungeons are alive and much like most alive creatures, they have goals. Most of dungeons goals are simply to survive, while others want to research or try new things as a dungeon. Some enjoy building caverns and filling them with challenges so that sentient creatures can try to overcome them (<--- Much like a DM). The other aspect of dungeons that is normally overlooked is that dungeons can reproduce. Dungeons can make other dungeons much like a dungeon creature, however, for a dungeon to grow it must have its own area of influence. This means that when one dungeon make another, the new dungeon is placed either at the edge of the parent's influence or completely outside. Dungeons choose to reproduce mainly for survival, if it is to divide attention between two dungeons or to make one dungeon "safer" than the other. This is a story of one such dungeon, made on the outside of the parent's influence.

The King's Dungeon

Original Action Adventure Fantasy LitRPG Psychological Male Lead Strong Lead Non-Human lead Magic Strategy

The world of Praelium is a simple one. Wake up in the morning, get dressed, eat some breakfast, stare at the outside scenery and look at all the wild monstrosities that roam the landscape. Oh, and you can't forget the constant battle. Or the magic. And the guilds. Infact, Praelium really isn't simple. Everything is a constant battle to survive, as even in the most peaceful of cities, someone or something will always be out there, rooting for your demise.

And the thing that cheers the most for the immediate dissipation of your frail soul?

Dungeons. Areas of landscape that are unusual in every way. Vast deserts the size of planets, oceans of lava, you name it, a Dungeon can have it. But in this story? We aren't talking about any old, run of the mill, "Hurr durr, monster, battle, treasure!" type of Dungeon. We're talking about the Dungeon of a King. That's right, you heard me loud and clear.

We're following the Dungeon of a King, and its Master, Basileus, in their conquest to become Praelium's greatest, most hated. Praelium's most revered, most feared. Praelium's most adored, most scored. Praelium's finest Dungeon, the cream of the crop, the Dungeon of Dunegons, and the one that will rise above all!

Memoriam Mine

Memoriam Mine

Original Action Adventure Fantasy Male Lead Female Lead Strong Lead Non-Human lead Secret Identity Magic Profanity Gore

Monstrously large caverns beneath the ground had become common place in daily life. Civilization revolved around these rapdily growing 'Dungons', slaying the creatures that endlessly appeared with sword and shield, claiming the loot as their own and sapping the rampant energy in the air to grow stronger.

Some tales spoke of a Dungeon so grand, legendary figures lined up just for the privilege of making it their final resting place, immortalizing themselves upon its entrance. It began as a simple mine, home to the place were an old beast rest. The very same who exiled her out of fear, became the fire that fuelled her ascension.

Those who scorned a woman sent to rest would see just how black their innards were.

The sun and the moon; a tale of two protagonists

Original Action Adventure Fantasy LitRPG Male Lead Female Lead Multiple Lead Characters Magic Strategy

After a heated battle for the right to a rare item, two famous female players find themselves suddenly transported back to the tutorial zone. Confused at first, they soon realize all their levels, stats and skills have been reset to those of a new character's. Strangely enough their inventory remained untouched and all legendary equipment have thus been preserved, but none of that mattered as being level 1 meant they could not overcome the level requirements to adorn them.

What was going?

As they continued forward they quickly find out that perhaps things were not the same as the game they remembered, or rather, it was exactly the same but 'different' in a way. Things have become more 'real', as if this was no longer just a game but reality. If that was the case, then even after the reset they still had one advantage on their side: they knew the game's story. Using that knowledge they will have to live on in this familiar yet dangerous new world.

This is the story of how two hated rivals- a fiery noblewoman and a frigid maid- are forced to join hands in order to survive. "Perhaps there are indeed two sovereigns in the sky... The sun and the moon."
