Perry Z has a Magical Destiny.
Born to a Magical Fantasy Princess and a nine-to-five Supervillain, Perry's never felt...adequate. He's completely magically dull, and without a scrap of superpowers.
When The System boots, he's forced to follow in his father's footsteps, but he'd rather take after his mother.
Maybe there's a way he can do both...
This is Macronomicon's take on a lighthearted slice-of-life superhero story. It is one of mine, though. So...you should know what you're getting into =P
The Worldbuilding is primarily inspired by Superminion, which was in turn inspired by Worm.
The explicit content tags are so if I decide to dip a little dark later down the line, you can't say I didn't warn ya. Except the cussing. That's there from the beginning. I tried to tone it down but a little just slipped in there.
A humble [Maid] in a backwater household, Fayette was resigned to living the dull life of a proper domestic servant, slowly leveling as she cleaned the estate. However, everything changes after she discovers another path in a sudden monster attack.
What if she were to take a more... direct approach to cleaning the filth plaguing this world?
What to expect from this novel:
-Household skills put to gruesome use in combat.
-A bit of romance. Eventually.
Cover by @Risukasa_nen
Renee 'Nay' Favreau wanted to be a respected chef with a renowned Taco Truck. Maybe even two or three trucks if she became successful, so she could truly cover Los Angeles.
But after a deadly encounter with an interdimensional spider, she finds herself in a dangerous new world full of magic and mayhem.
Discovering she has the power to become a coveted Epicurist for the cultivators known as Marrow Eaters, one of the special chefs with the ability to prepare the magical meals that give the Eaters their powers, she must navigate a world full of gods and monsters if she wants to survive the heat.
Release schedule is 5 chapters per week. Monday - Friday.
What happens when a medieval world of swords and steel is invaded and forcefully introduced to a System of levels and magic?
It was just another ball.
Princess Cassandra thought she could deal with it.
She just had to pretend for half an hour to actually care about the attending nobles before her father would let her leave, as usual.
That is, until the sky started glowing blue and strange text appeared in front of her face, mentioning something about a System.
Even that she could deal with.
After all, it’s interesting, right?
Regardless of how… bizarre… it is, it’s still something new in her rather boring life.
But being kidnapped by planar invaders from some planet called Earth after a literal glowing heart flies through a portal in front of her and disappears in her chest?
That might be a little too much.
A couple of notes:
There will not be any sexual content or romance in this story at all.
This story is a medieval LitRPG Apocalypse. It begins when a System initializes in a medieval world that doesn't already have magic. The System is automatically translated to everyone in the story in a way that they will understand if they are unable to read or are blind.
Additionally, Cassandra is not your typical type of princess. She is much more laidback, without much care for politics, and she is by no means spoiled. In Midgard, everyone in the three royal families must train in combat so that they can protect their share of World Tree Sap, which grants whoever drinks it various benefits, from the monthly challengers.
PS: Yes, I know not every princess is spoiled. It's just that there are a lot of instances of there being spoiled princesses, so I thought I'd mention that.
The content warnings are mostly so that I have freedom to do that in the future chapters. I normally don't put all that much swearing into my stories, or traumatizing content.
Although there does tend to be some gore from time to time in my writing.
This is my fourth series, and I hope you like it!
Also, I am open to suggestions! Feel free to leave suggestions on how to improve the story, and if I feel that they're good ones, I'll add them!
Sing the story, bard, of the Firebrand. He, the youth who saved Morcaster from ruin. He, the warrior who defeated an empire. He, the archmage who crossed the Netherworld...
The tale of Martel the mage, from his humble beginnings as a hapless novice at a magic school. Slow, character-focused and light-hearted progression fantasy. Updates Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

Charles Snippy finds himself lost and alone at the end of the world. He makes a wish for a friend and meets Zee Captain, an eccentric lunatic luminary, who drags him on an adventure through the eldritch, deadly, questionable and limitless post-apocalyptic world of tomorrow, a place where Goodness makes the rules and everything has purpose and passion.
~A post-apocalyptic, dark comedy webcomic that I've been working on since 2005 by myself at first and then with friends from all around the world.
Kyle Goldman is having a bad century, multiple of them. Kyle is immortal, destined to live the same mediocre life over and over again. Worse, he remembers each time through life. Every betrayal, every life lesson, every combat spell, he is destined to learn them all again and again.
Every life he re-awakens during the Awakening Trials. Trials designed to pull out the full magical and spiritual potential of a Space Force Candidate. Depending on how well he does in these trials can change his entire career. Since this is his thirteenth time through the trials he is well aware of their importance.
Even better, he knows how to cheat. Having prior knowledge of the trials and their ever increasing difficulties is the ultimate form of cheating. Especially when the rewards for completing each stage of the trial is an increased Attribute point.
He's lived each life to its fullest, some dying as a famous ace pilot. Others dying as an expeditionary Marine on long range space recon. Each life ultimately leads to the same inevitable end, he makes friends, tastes happiness for a brief moment, and then is betrayed. The betrayal always changes, but always hurts the same. From there a deep spiral occurs, leading to his inevitable, but often glorious demise.
This time he vows to take things differently. He still plans to ace the exams, but then he will do the unthinkable, he will resign his commission as an officer. To live as an overqualified regular citizen of the free worlds.
With the knowledge of spell craft deeply ingrained in his mind from his previous lives, he is set to make try number thirteen his lucky number after all.
There is only one problem. The Government saw his test scores and now they won't stop to have him in their ranks. It looks like the betrayal will come earlier than expected in this, his thirteenth try at living the same stale existence.
Themes Include: GameLit Elements, Progression Fantasy, with Space Tech and interstellar battles.

A multiverse spanning cultivation story with LitRPG elements
They thought it was bad when an alien being descended upon Earth, killing billions of people. That was until the world was initiated into part of a universe-spanning Empire of cut-throat cultivators, beasts, and entities of ungodly power. Not to mention being forced to navigate a complex system of progression aided by a mysterious AI.
Alistair was just an ordinary college student, but he is now forced to find his way through an increasingly complicated world where power is obtained through conflict and death, where cultivation is key and the Peak is insurmountable. Alistair faces deadly encounters behind every corner on his path to survive and protect his loved ones, as he forges his own path to eternity.
Current Schedule: Monday through Friday
A high school biology teacher is sucked into a new reality, where a mysterious Gamemaker forces him to fight for his life. With no other choice, Theodore Cross must become a Druid and master the powers of nature to protect himself -- and those he loves the most.
New chapters every weekday at 9 AM CST.
For advance chapters, see my Patreon page!
Discord for Druid Evolution
What to expect:
1. A pretty standard LitRPG apocalypse set-up, with certain high-potential players getting invited to participate in an Arena.
2. A MC who is human and empathetic, who makes mistakes and flounders sometimes, but who is willing to fight and kill to protect his friends.
3. A quest to save his best friend and crush from another party of players led by two psychopaths. The MC doesn't vie for power, but does what he thinks is right and gains power along the way.
4. A Game/System that is reminiscent of both Skyrim and Dungeons and Dragons.
5. Some gore and violence, mild horror, some foul language, but no sexual situations or overly traumatizing content.
Was life ever so simple ? Is anything free in this world ?
Jason hated his monotonous life.
Wake up, dismantle things, Go to sleep. Rinse and repeat.
His starting cards weren't great to begin with, and he made some questionable decisions. The system he got was bugged too! It didn't interpret most of his orders correctly, but he got the [Shop] feature to compensate for the problem.
He kept on grinding everyday, till he got an opporunity.
A chance, to do everything again.
-Chapters will be updated on a daily basis.
I am also posting this on Scribblehub:
It was just supposed to be a game. A really, really great game, yes - but a game.
Instead, Jasper got his heart ripped out by a brooding goddess and awoke to find himself in another world. No weapons, no skills. Naked.
Trapped in a world full of ancient horrors, where gods and monsters still roam the earth, Jasper is forced to adapt quickly or die - and he's not ready to die. Good thing he's a mage.
This is a high-fantasy novel with light LitRPG elements. It's not super-crunchy, but the system is an important part of the story. There is some light cursing and gore, but this is not a Grimdark novel. There will also be no harem.
The current schedule is chapters on M-W-F of around 2000-2500 words, as well as occasional bonus chapters that provide background or insights into side characters.
This is my first real attempt at writing a full novel, but the story is based on a world that I've been creating and re-creating since I was a child. I have an extensive "history" and religion, and even a semi-cohesive language system worked out, which will hopefully slowly shine through as the story progresses. I want to avoid having too many info-dumps, so I may from time to time post a bonus lore chapter that will explain some of the background for any who are interested.
The Earth met its end, bathed in holy fire. The rifts spill monsters into our world. The Kingdom of Cindrus is the last bastion of humanity; the last vestiges of a broken people clinging to life deep underground.
But not all hope is lost. Erec, like all humans, has been blessed by the goddess. From a line of disgraced nobility, he seeks to reclaim his family’s honor and join the prestigious academy–the institution that trains the next generation of Knights. Formidable warriors that blend their Blessing and advanced Armor to reconquer the wasteland of a world from the horrors that spew forth from rifts.
This is a fantasy/post-apocalyptic portal litrpg, and I hope you enjoy. Will try to update whenever possible!
It was almost 10 Years ago that the Tower first emerged. A mysterious demi-planar monolith containing infinite dangers but also infinite possibilities. Humanity saw it as a boon, at first. A gift from a benevolent God, or from some species with a higher risk tolerance but good intentions.
Then the 5 Year Disaster struck, and Humanity learned the truth. The Tower was a test, not a gift. A test they were failing. They doubled down on their efforts, Climbing with the fury of a dying species, but it was not enough. In the final moments before their species was annihilated, a single unimportant member of the final force of Humanity found a unique item. It sent him back to three months after the Tower emerged, to lead Humanity in a rare second chance.
But one man cannot save a world alone, even with a decade’s worth of memories. Will Sutton, Pioneer, will have to deal with both allies and enemies to avoid the mistakes which plagued Humanity’s first Climb if he wants to ensure that they clear the 50th Floor within 10 Years.
Held at gunpoint after getting a little too drunk at the club, Clarissa is thrust into a new existence at the moment of her death. Dying just as her soul is fully brought into something called the "Centrality", along with the rest of Earth, her soul almost escapes into the afterlife, but is called back by the touch of the new System.
Due to an unexpected series of events, she is thrown into a dangerous sub-layer of reality known as a dungeon. Here she must survive, though this may prove more difficult than she expects.
But what of the world awaiting her outside the dungeon? Well, she knows little of just what has happened to Earth and must discover just how much it has changed on her own.
Michael must survive a fake world, he and other people from Earth have been teleported to.
Struggling to survive with his weight and fear. Michael must try and figure out the mysteries of this new world he is stuck in.
The other people transported to the empty stone city, the monsters outside, and the mysterious System Store are all threats are opportunities in equal measure.
Purgatory is a Dark Progression Adventure LITRPG Fantasy. Taking a grittier approach to the survival progression story, when the main character isn't a super athlete ready to go at a moment's notice.
The unique setting moves away from any of the standard tropes of a LITRPG setting and takes on the air of a true mystery. While a slower start as Michael gets his bearings, there is clear progression, stats, and power levels. Avoiding the info dumps of boxes, Purgatory excels at people using knowledge of game mechanics to try and figure out how things work.

39-year-old Manny Okoro is fulfilled.
He’s a family man, an undefeated boxing champion, and has a small yet tight circle of friends. Fame, riches and prestige… He has them all.
Until he doesn’t.
After falling into a coma, he learns the only way he can wake up is by winning the “Half-Dead”, a death game which forces him to reincarnate in a new RPG-like world from scratch. The objective of the game is simple: be the last one standing among 1000 contestants.
The chances of survival are slim and Manny isn’t even familiar with RPGs. However, the boxer is no stranger to competition and is obsessed with winning.
He is prepared to do whatever it takes to get back home... But is that even a good thing?
Release schedule: Mon, Wed and Fri
The intergalactic diplomatic mission turned into a disaster, but a world full of mysteries with dangers and rewards at every corner also presented itself.
Ending up in a cultivation world with an AI, Ethan knew what to do. Getting answers to the newfound mysteries should’ve waited. Becoming strong enough to survive was essential. Finding his friends in this perilous world had to come later. First and foremost, learning magic was fun, and having fun was paramount.
What he didn’t know was that soon enough, he would be fighting against eldritch horrors with a necromancer praying mantis by his side. Well, there was still some time for that; he’d get to know eventually.
A good ol' LitRPG sprinkled with Cultivation, VR, and AI.
What to expect;
It's a fast-paced story, but not too much.
Mostly light-hearted, but there are some grim moments as well.
The tags are primarily for my freedom but do know that this novel is intended for adults. I don't plan any explicit sex scenes, but there might be intimacy and nudity.
Update schedule: 3 chapters/week with 2.5k~ words, M-W-F, 2 pm EST.
Earth is dying. The sun is expanding at an uncontrollable rate, but Theo Spencer is alright with this. He's led a deplorable life as a government assassin, spending his days removing political opponents in far-off lands. When the end comes, a mysterious entity grants him the gift of reincarnation. The gift of a quiet life as an alchemist.
Theo awakens in a small town in the southern reaches of a small kingdom in a non-human body. Broken Tusk doesn't seem like much, but his legendary alchemy skills will soon turn their fortune.
Join Theo on his journey to turn the swamp-town of Broken Tusk into a prosperous trade town. This story contains no romantic elements, no combat, and no bad vibes. From the start, to the finish, it's all alchemy all the time.
Schedule is m-w-f.
A group of rookie adventurers enter an ancient tomb in the hopes finding treasure
Within they found something priceless but it is not something they expected
Within lay an egg that held a species that existed since life began
A species wiped out long ago
A species that only lives in tales, songs and legends
A species that can become more powerful than any other
With the opening of the tomb the adventurers will release this creature out into the world
They will release me into their world
In my past life I was powerless and abused
Now I can become more powerful than any other
And I am very hungry...
A dungeon’s sleep is never easy.
After getting reincarnated as a dungeon, Theodor thought he’d finally get some rest and relaxation. That changed when a bumbling old hero stumbled into him and died, making Theodor the target of adventurers everywhere.
Masquerading as a house in the small town of Rosewind, Theo must now do whatever it takes to remain unnoticed… even if it means creating an avatar to interact with people or go on a mission set by the annoying Earl Rosewind!
Follow the adventures of a dungeon dragged out of its own body on an adventure it never wished to be a part of.
Updated every few days!
The days where adventurers would roam the land and grow strong are long gone. More than 99.99% of the world's population is level 1, and in fact, leveling just isn't something people think about anymore, as almost every spawn point on the planet has been gone for close to a thousand years. Only the elites, the super rich, or the super lucky have access to spawn points, and because of this, they are like Gods among men: like superheroes. For people like Zach, life is a mundane, ordinary experience of getting up, going to school, working, and then going back to bed. But that's all about to change when he stumbles upon one of the only unknown spawn points in existence. And in doing so, his life is about to descend into a wild chaos he never could have expected. (Lit RPG, fantasy, action)
There were 2 options:
Fight the same war for countless more aeons. Shatter the Betrayer's undead legions time and time again until all was ground to dust. Because the endless legions truly never end. A hair's breath of ground in a century is enough if the war takes all of eternity.
Or to choose Hope. To cast away his memories, his power, his very life. To wager everything on a chance to prevent their eventual end or to perish trying. Because if he were to return it would be with the power necessary to finally slay what remains of the Betrayer. Of the last Aspect. Only then would all things be right.
And so, he chose the latter.
Weak to strong quick-ish.
Powerful MC reincarnates, gradually starts regaining memories.
MC that is an actual character not a plot device.
My original unique magic system discovered along with the MC.
My original setting with mythos that have both been living rent free in my head for actual years.
Opening arc will be less fast than the following story.
Good writing (I think) and grammar.
Upload schedulle: 2 chapters a week of 3-4k words each. I want to upscale to 3 in the future.
Meant to be read in RR dark mode.
For those coming here from my other stories, this is indeed a reimagining of my older story, CotM. I say reimagining because I have changed so much it cannot be called just a rewrite. Among the major changes, MC is fundamentally different in personality and background, I have actually planned the story out and changed it almost completely and I have adjusted my mythos so it no longer has as many holes as swiss cheese.
Teo’s only chance at awakening as a [Player] went to ruin when he was selected for the most dangerous tutorial dungeon to ever exist, Lyria’s Cemetery.
Filled with undead monsters powerful enough to give a high-level ranker a run for their money, it had been firmly maintaining its title of “unclearable”.
To fight against the [Paralysys] and [Fear] status effects that the undead monsters inflict, Teo poured all his points into willpower as he leveled-up, hoping to make it out alive.
Awakening no longer mattered, he just wanted to survive.
But the choices he made inside the ‘unclearable’ dungeon brought about a side-effect that he couldn't have even imagined in his wildest dreams.
“For the last time, I am not a necromancer!!!”
“But you have an army of skeletons!”
“They are not mine.”
“But they are following you.”
Orcs, brutal, cunning, and prolific, pushed humanity to the brink. Humankind retreated into massive, fortified cities to survive.
In an age long past, we banded together, fought back, and waged a war of extermination. After decades of bloody war, we won.
Or so we thought.
Now, our ancient enemy has once again reared its head. And humanity, still reeling from the eradication wars, still huddled in their cities, have been afraid to once again exert their dominion over the land. And now we're out of time.
Monsters, and worse, swarm in the wilds. Idealists, those humans who have manifested magic, struggle to turn back the tide.
Join Tom, as he strives desperately to become an Idealist, and save his House from ruin, his city from destruction, and humankind from annihilation.
Welcome to Siege State, an action-adventure fantasy with a fresh lick of paint on the fantasy LitRPG genre.
The story is more of a slow burn, and I hope you find the pay-off satisfying.
Three chapters per week: Monday, Wednesday and Fridays.
Just when Vince was on the crux of starting his life, he found out it was going to end. Cancer. Inoperable. Less than a year to live.
Then he's summoned to the magical world of Earris and thrown directly into battle. He quickly learns that everyone in this world has a Skill, even him. Though his appears not to be useful...
Once he figures things out, he sets his mind to two goals: curing his cancer, and getting home. But will anything in this world really be that easy?
NEW CHAPTERS MONDAY - SATURDAY 8:30AM, US CST (1:30pm GMT)
In a blink, I found myself in an unknown land, greeted by the textbox of an unfriendly system.
It wanted me to become a great hero, save the world, win the love of the people and all that crap. But this new world already had a hero. Why should I bust my ass, deal with dragons and the unknown, for people I didn't know? Let him deal with that. It's his job! So instead of being tempted by the system's nonsense, I chose a simple class. Potion maker. I wasn't interested in cultivating mana and defying the heavens, courting death, none of that crap.
Unfortunately, the town I spawned near was suffering crippling inflation, merchants and people were leaving, and they themselves lacked high-demand businesses. The town would soon be going under.
Not if I have anything to say about it.
But will it be that easy to escape fate...?
Novel contains: Strong MC in a slice of life environment, dungeon diving, boss battles, cultivation and elements, mana/magic, mc exclusive system but it doesn't do the work for him, treasures, adventurers, slow world building, build-up, features that will not be introduced all at once (upgrades so on), actual good loot at the end of very powerful bosses, romance(no harem). As characters develop throughout the series, issues and emotions and even the mc may find himself in a corner or two. A story of an upcoming potion shopkeeper and his apprentices.
Building an S-ranked Potion Shop is easier said than done...
3-6 times a week- Mon, Wed, Fri.
Daily chapter on Patreon. [All chapters are 3k words or more. As of this update 8/11/22, book 1 has been professionally edited by my editor and submitted to Amazon. 103k words. Book 2 is in progress and chapters are uploaded daily Patreon.]
The final version of the cover will be an anime cover, but will not be uploaded to RR. You may see it on my facebook/twitter page.
The Academy is a place where the brave, the bold, and the inquisitive gather. These trailblazing youths who spend their days training to explore unknown lands and challenge unseen dangers all in the name of riches, fame, and honor. To this most esteemed of realmsverse institutions comes a new challenger. His name is Will Wisdom, and he seeks to become a novice of the Academy, not just for wealth and fame, but also to discover the truth of why he’d once been sacrificed on the altar of the gods of death only to come back to life and start anew.
Yep, you heard right. Will’s got a crazy secret. He’s a teenager stuck with Extra Life, a curse that allows Will to relive the same day of every death until he finds a way to live and see tomorrow. Now, this isn't exactly a bad thing. Not for a boy eager to learn from his mistakes, adapt, and grow to become the kind of adventurer who takes on the epic quests and grand challenges that turn nobodies into legends.
The Academy’s the perfect place for Will's journey of self-discovery too. Assuming he survives Swords and Sorcery, Apprentice Alchemy, Dungeon Excursions, P.E., and the rest of the crazy list of training courses in his novice schedule. Will may need some help—and going solo is definitely not advisable!
Welcome to the Academy, Will Wisdom—hope you survive the experience!
Adventure Academy is a witty progression fantasy story that doubles as a coming-of-age tale which weaves elements of Norse mythology into its framework; offering a modern twist to timeless tales of heroes, monsters, and otherworldly realms.

A fantasy world low in magic is hit by an apocalypse when 'the scourge' finds it.
Light litrpg. Focused around levelling spells, skills, and abilities. There are no stats. (Will feature some base-building and monster evolution through Tem's safezone and familiar respectively)
Battlemage/Healer hybrid. She uses close range spells and her staff to fight mostly solo.
No major romance plots. It is mostly a story of self-discovery.
Positive and wholesome balanced with a world that's falling apart and eldritch puppeteers. Expect satirization of general LitRPG tropes.
Sister Temarin, or as her wards call her Sis Tem, wanted nothing more from life but to take her vows and care for her little ones. The sisters of the Verdant Glenn Orphanage had raised her from a toddler. Tem owed the temple her debt, and wished to spend her days repaying it, doing what she loved.
Then the ground parted, spilling monsters on to the Earth and mysterious portal creatures spirited her children away. The apocalypse shattered the world and rebuilt it in the invading scourge's image. Fortunately for the world's residents, the gods didn't abandon them. They sacrificed their divinity, creating the system, granting the people classes, skills, and spells that their paltry magic could never achieve.
Now, Tem must hunt down her missing wards with nothing but her habit and a staff. Each child she saves grants her strength, but the horrors and new pleasures of the changing world leaves her questioning her faith.
B-boy and parkour performer Jay Luckrun and others from his high school get an offer they can't refuse. A leveling system with stats and skills, access to other dimensions where dungeons hoard incredible loot, and magical powers that'll alter reality as they know it. There's a price, of course.
Upholding the responsibilities of a near-extinct pantheon of multiverse protectors and facing oncoming cosmic doom, which sounds way over Jay's head on a drunk Friday night. But hey, how can he say no? Yeah, he'll fight monsters, divine apocalyptic forces, assassins, and many others, but that's par for the course in this Power Fantasy.
The offer is coming from the most beautiful girl ever. And it nets him an OP Affinity to a fundamental force.
A magical apocalypse? Monsters and mayhem? A war with aliens?
Sorry, that's a no from Rory. Sadly, his happy retirement ends when he crashes his truck to save a kid. When he wakes up, he finds nearly everyone has evacuated his town, leaving him behind to figure out this new system that grants classes and skills through magical coins called Sigils.
He's got a Legendary Sigil — it lets him turn anything in the world into a Sigil, at the cost of not being able to use them himself. That's fine. He's too old to fight anyway. Punching monsters makes his arthritis flare and dodging fireballs leaves him bedridden for days. Instead, Rory is going to gather the survivors and make sure they have the best Sigils possible.
The apocalypse didn't end Rory's retirement, it just gave him a new line of business.
Sigil Weaver is a LitRPG Apocalypse story, with a focus on slice-of-life elements and exploring magic. Updates daily!

Also got a patreon for up to 20 advanced chapters (well, 18 so far, but 20 soon!)
Dominic was a good college student. He got all his assignments turned in. Studied for all his tests and got A's and B's. He was even on the honor roll his second semester. Sure he partied hard on weekends, waking up with hangovers bad enough to kill a cow. Unfortunately after receiving a spiked drink he won't be having another hangover, only a very bad trip to another world.
Dominic wakes up in a strange pod, submerged within a strange liquid. Upon emerging he discovers he has changed, the world he's in has changed, everything has changed. Now with no choice he must accept what he has become and adapt, or die in a world that's out right trying to kill him.
Long has Mika, an otherwise devout princess of the Deep, dreamed of the wonders of the surface. Of endless oceans of trees, feathered carnivores and magical lightning. But the Overworld is a dangerous place, populated by warlike peoples who dwarf her already diminutive species in both size and brutality. To cross the boundary into that world is forbidden to all but a very few…and most certainly to her, a weak Singer in possession of a vital treasure. But when the horrors of the surface find their way below, Mika must choose: embrace the brutal, or face a fate worse than death.

*Note: The dungeon side of this story will build slowly over time and only really kick off at the beginning of the second arc*
This story features a bisexual non-human MC and includes unconventional, probably kind of weird versions of high fantasy species like elves, orcs, and goblins. It’s also got elements of manapunk and flintlock fantasy, varied modes of gender expression, polyamory, multiple different sexualities but no explicit sex, grotesque lovecraftian body-horror abominations, fantastical versions of prehistoric animals and some very gratuitous hand-holding.

Incarnated into a world no longer familiar, with no clues as to what happened or destination in mind, a new being creates a home. But the world was never kind before, and that has not changed. And so begins a new life of small steps and large consequences, amid a change that could be the end of everything.
Ebony had never been very… normal. Neither was his upbringing, but it didn’t stop him from living a somewhat normal life. His younger school years had quite some disruptions but all else went as per normal. Left alone after he turned 15 and was deemed old and capable enough to care for himself. He went on graduating high school and entering a university with no issue.
Ebony never faced any problem in life. He didn’t lack money. He could see his entire future pan out for him and he was sure it was going to go as expected. Graduate, get a stable job, build up a family, live to a ripe old age together with his partner. Boring. Not that he didn’t want any of that and the building of a family might prove difficult seeing how he had been single for all 20 years of his life.
There was little he looked forward to in life. His daily routine of training had been moulded into him from as far back as he could remember and has become a habit and a hobby. Reading was one outlet for his boredom, fantasy, swords and magic, a world unlike his own where perhaps his training would have some use.
One moment he was on the way back from a job interview for a part time job, the next moment he found himself in a forest.
Freezing... Snowing in the middle of Summer? Not important. Appearing in a forest out of nowhere? Not important. A metre tall and twice and long ripped ass boar in sight? Cool. Charging right towards him? Not so cool.
This is my first writing a web novel or just writing in general. I started writing with a 'why not?' mindset but found myself loving the craft of creating a story instead of just reading one. It's a slow starter but I hope you'll like it too.
Chapters will be around 3000-5000 words and updates once every 3 days.
A man dies and is given the choice to be reborn as anything.
So he chooses to be a Dungeon Core
With no better reason than to create a dungeon of his dreams, the new Core begins his new life with but one goal. To bring the Legends and Myths of his past life to reality and create a Dungeon the world has never seen before.
With a Unique skill gifted as his "Special" broken power, will this Dungeon rise to power, becoming a Legend itself.
Or will the world seek to destroy and/or control him for his abilities and resources.
Updates are currently one a day, though may change depending on real world situations.
A self-proclaimed seeker of peace and his trusty "system" venture on a journey to flip the world on its back—in a civilized manner, of course.
Edris has always aimed for a peaceful, carefree life, but the world around him? Not so much. It started with encountering the amnesic, system-like entity in his head. From there, only absurdities followed. Aristocratic conspiracies, mismatched identities, intercontinental wars... Hold on—did he just get called a prophet? In any case, as the world descends into chaos, Edris's carefree life may be just a bit further away than expected.
NOTE: This is a progression fantasy with LITRPG/GameLit elements planned for later arcs. Once the story reaches that point, I'll then add the tags.
“In some way unknowable but instinctively felt, Pneuma was both royalty and a monster. To be respected and feared. Trint was in awe. He wasn’t even sure what Pneuma looked like… but his fear was justified.“
Trint, an average, middle-aged nobody who suffered a terrible encounter, finds himself thrown for a loop when Earth is integrated into the Iterations. He must ascend through level-gated realms till he either hits the top or dies.
Adopted by a mysterious family Dynasty, Trint receives an equally-mysterious companion and faces his greatest challenge yet: he must now succeed at becoming a monster-wrecking machine or he will never recover what he lost.
Bonus chapters when I feel like it.
This is my very first time writing a story. The first time I've shared it with more than one person. I know it's not perfect, but I'd appreciate any comments you wish to share. Be honest but respectful, and I know I can get better.
I hope someone enjoys this story as much as I did writing it.
The story included LitRPG elements that help build the world but will not have constant readouts of stat sheets.
There will be nothing rated beyond PG-13 romantically/sexually.
Violence is the main contributor to reader discretion. This will be a story involving violent battles and detailed death.
Dungeons? Cultivation? Core Cards? Sects? Otherworldly travellers?!
In a world where cultivation has long been the practice of the powerful, magicians fight the natural order. To help them challenge the cultivators, they will summon a hero! But wait, what did they really summon?
This is a story of cultivation and dungeons, magic and monsters, love and rivalry, action and adventure, and so much more. What arts will this traveller master, and will he make more friends than enemies along the way? Join Micro on a road trip across the universe.
I hope you enjoy this silly little story of mine. It’ll be a light hearted mashup of some of my favourite genres, and it’s my first non-rhyming project in a long time, so I’m excited to improve my writing with some practice.
Thanks for reading!
He built and crafted with all his heart.
Whether totemic nature magic, mechanical and alchemical factories, nanomachines, teleporters, alchemy, enchanting, mining, and farming, there were no ends. From the lowly stone age he moved reached levels of technology thought only imaginary and magic which made worlds quake.
Things aren’t perfect though. Monsters and beasts fill the world, growing stronger by the day, a malignant force is ever present… And strange, bountiful ruins of all sorts remain scattered throughout the world, abandoned yet maintained by faithful servants.
But what mattered most to Joey was the little black cube which not only redefined his worldview, but allowed him to transform the world into something utterly marvellous.
The patreon linked to this account is not for this story.
This story heavily focuses on crafting progression of both magic and tech, where in something is crafted to unlock a new resource or way to craft something better. Heavily influenced on games with such structure.
Releases once a day around 4 PM GMT (Or BST if applicable). I will be releasing this story a book at a time, depending on the popularity it maintains. Since this story is aimed to reach extremely high tech and magic levels, in theory there could be ten or more books (~130k words each)
A lost soul from Earth transmigrates to a world of cultivation and finds himself in the body of a playboy noble and complete waste. Except he doesn't have any memories, can't let anyone know he's not the same person and is immediately involved in a conspiracy with a powerful noble family.
Luckily he came to this world with a power, whatever he gives to someone as a gift he'll get it back 100 times better.
His first target?
His new wife, the former top young genius.

Tal was spending the last moments of his life the best he could - turning to the game-world of Valeria to escape reality. What he didn't know, was that he was actively participating in a recruitment program. Ultimately, Tal was given a choice. One that would see his whole life turned upside down.
Enter the ancient world of Valeria. A world of gods, demons, and myriad other magical creatures. A world scorched by the ever-hungry, and slowly expanding Shroud. A world where the magic ‘System’ is flailing wildly, summoning individuals from all over the multiverse in a desperate bid to preserve the worlds under its contention.
Marked as a 'Contender' and teleported to the very real world of Valeria, Tal finds himself alone and trapped in a mysterious Tower. There, he learns just how much of a boon The Tower truly is. If only he can survive long enough to find a way out of its halls.

This web novel is being produced for two reasons:
1) All of my completely original ideas are super tough to write.
2) I've read a boat load of mediocre system apocalypse stories and wanted to know how hard it was to write a generic one that didn't trip over itself every chapter.
This is a self-aware generic LitRPG Xianxia System-Apocalypse novel full of well-enough-written wish fulfillment with a main character whose combined powers and stat distributions you’ve probably never seen before.
Join Niko on his adventures as he carries humanity through a basic story that’s way better than all other basic System apocalypse stories! Keyword, basic.
The "harem" aspect is really just a few casual relationships, so don't be put off thinking there'll be misogynistic writing. There will be stronger romance down the line. If it tells you anything, there are zero romantic partners within the first 100,000 words.
By the way, Tao Wong has the trademark on "System Apocalypse" and doesn't like everyone using it as the name of a subgenre. We as a community can actively make it even more generic by describing every novel where it fits as a "system apocalypse" in their Amazon reviews.
'Rise of the Business [Class]' is a story about a world where humanity ended up fleeing through space, after suffering several great disasters at home.
On arrival we crash-landed and were soon attacked by magic wielding civilizations who learned how to deal with our weaponry with a speed that belied their seemingly simplistic nature. We were lost. But eventually we survived by abandoning technology and adapting.
But this tale takes place thousands of years later, after humanity has had time to rise and falter more than once. It tells of a time where we adapted too much, focusing only on combat and magic and learning to rely on the [System] that our ancestors built in order to compete and survive on this hostile planet with the others.
This is a story about our final chance during a time when all of humanity is under siege again, where we struggled to adapt too late and ultimately had to learn how to summon a collection of people from Earth through time and space to come help - but not to the 'besieged time' but back a couple of hundred years - before it went too far down the wrong path, so they can hopefully change things enough to prevent a return to that timeline.
Follow Livia as she is ripped from her favorite library and end up getting lucky, or unlucky? On her very first day on the Elderwood continent.
While a trio of native lads excitedly leave home to find adventure, oblivious of how very soon they might end up entangled in the fate of the world.
But the question that remains to be answered, that this first leg of the journey aims to find out; is what can a LitRPG bookworm like Livia do if called on to change humanity and prepare us all for the future, all before her 21st birthday?
Find out soon, as we are finishing up book 1 in the coming two weeks.
Cheers for reading this far, have a biscuit!
This is not a story.
There is no villain to overcome, there is no hero to root for.
There is no plot, there are no characters.
What there is, is a world. A world with its own history, its own rules, its own magic. If what you love about fantasy is seeing fascinating ideas explored, seeing cool new races and hearing about fantastical locations, this is the work for you. If you enjoy reading setting books for fun, or speculating just what kind of crazy biology must be going on for dragons to be able to cross-breed with essentially every species under the sun, this may be just what you're looking for.
The Encyclopedia Arcane will explore just why there are so many hundreds of elven races (and just why they're all so superhumanly beautiful and immortal), how exactly the different planes of reality are connected, what truly underpins magic and why so many spells fail upon the death of their creator, and what the scale-mines of Everquake are harvesting.
This is set in its own setting; it is not intended to be any one world (other than my own), and I will be doing some things quite differently than other stories, but ideally not so different it feels totally alien.
The anti-matter bomb had worked... sort of. Hoplite thirty-seven didn't think that it worked quite the way that it was intended... After all, he was still alive and now he had to deal with elves, magic, and a primitive human civilization, along with other fairy-tale creatures he didn't understand.
2356. Nearly 300 years since Humanity lost the surface from the invading monsters that nearly snuffed all vestiges of humanity out. Guns, airstrikes, and even nukes failed to deter the Horrors as they spread to nearly every inch of Earth's soil. What was once the most dominant and abundant of species now lives sheltered in massive underground cities and intricate tunnel systems. These bastions of Humanity's defiance, shelter the remnants of civilization by drawing upon a source of power known as Mana.
Discovered the same day the Horrors emerged, many would say it drew the strange portals that brought upon The Collapse, while others, a merciful act of god to empower humanity to resist extinction. Whatever the case, special humans known as Awakened wield mana to defend humanity and carve out a sense of normalcy from the wreckage of their lost civilization.
Jack is one of these beings, however unlike his fellow brethren, Jack is unknowingly a Harbinger. A walking, talking, time bomb, that when blown, could unleash a cataclysm that could finally finish what the Collapse could not.
The end of Humanity.
Unless of course Jack learns to control his power, then it's anyone's guess as to what he will become, Humanities' Savior, or it's Harbinger of the End. Or maybe dead in a government Black-site if the bomb collar around his neck explodes.
GORE, PROFANITY, AND VARIOUS MEANS OF VIOLENCE AHEAD!
The views depicted do not represent the author's views but the POV of the characters.
Astrid, a mischievous noble teen, long dreamed of exploring the ancient cities preserved beneath the waves, left behind from a time before the ocean swallowed the world.
When an ancient monster long thought dead assaults humanity's last bastion, a floating ship-city, she awakens her System early–only, she's not a warrior as expected, but forced to walk the path of a [Psychokinetic].
With Spawn infested oceans, pirates looking to plunder, and mysterious monsters that lurk within Bubbled-Cites at the bottom of the ocean. Safety is anything but guaranteed.
She’ll learn to trip; levitate, throw objects, eyeball pulling, all the way to the apex of psychic powers.
But, what happens when she discovers that her world was a lot larger than she–and the rest of humanity, once thought?
[Psychokinetic] Eyeball Pulling is a laid back story about a young girl who has a craving for adventure and fighting. She wasn't expecting to awaken as a mage class, but that won't stop her from having fun—no—It only makes it better! No longer will she need to resort to laborious activities, including, but not limited to; picking up stuff, carrying stuff, or even throwing stuff! Everything can be done with her mind!
This is the first serious litRPG I am writing, and I am considered a new author. So please be kind!
What to expect from this story:
- LitRPG elements with blue boxes
- A mischievous, powerful female protagonist
- Gore, eyeball pulling, limb pulling, with a hint of noodle pulling?
- Slice of life elements with a party of (hopefully) interesting and fun characters
- Average chapter length 1800-2200 with a release of Mon-Fri
Following the unfortunate news of his grandfather’s passing, Lucien is forced to go back to his old hometown. As the sole living relative, he gets to inherit his old pop’s bookstore. A place where he had spent most of his childhood.
There, however, he finds an ancient book that ends up shaking his view on the world and raising the curtain over a side he never knew existed, one filled with magic, mythical creatures, and all sorts of dangers.
“Wait a minute! Are you telling me, grandpa was a wizard?!”
Follow Lucien as he slowly unveils the mysteries of this hidden world, meets new people, saves princesses, befriends dragons, and uncovers the ancient secrets of his bloodline.
This is the story of the Bookstore Mage.
This story is set in a modern-day setting. It’s not earth but a parallel world similar to ours with different countries and all of that.
There will be some world-hoping elements down the line.
There will be some elements of army building.
There will be pets.
There will not be any harem, I’m not confident enough to write a realistic one without compromising the relationships.
There will be a realistic development of both the MC’s powers and his relationships.
This will seem like a slow start, but it will hopefully pick up the pace whilst still being enjoyable.
I’m not writing the chapters now, this is an old draft I had for a long time. So the updates will be consistent.
Re: Apocalypse game now has a Webtoon adaptation!
Aliens have invaded our world.
A hundred metallic flying saucers covered the skies of the world’s largest cities, forcing 10 million humans each year to play their absurd VR ‘apocalyptic games’.
[Entering game, round four...]
[Human vs. Bio Mutation]
[Main Mission: Survive for 7 days]
Humanity was forced to survive a series of different apocalypse scenarios: Ice age, Nuclear Fallout, AI Meltdown, Apex predators, etc. all for one promise:
[Defeat all rounds and we will leave your world in peace]
Every year, the whole world would watch the games in terror as their loved ones suffered and died, with less than 1% managing to return.
After 8 years, Alan D. Angello and his team, humanity’s greatest hope, were also defeated.
When all hope was lost, Alan was reincarnated 3 years before he joined the games.
Will Alan be able to make a difference this time?
This is my fifth Novel, hopefully, this one will show all my experience after writing for 2 years.
Its VR + Squid games + Apocalypse movies
