Me and my childhood friend/girlfriend were transported into another world. We only have a status board, trying to grind our levels up, we went on a journey!
“For over two hundred years, the island of Xayawak has been a crucial colony for the Kingdom of Saxol, producing the rum, tobacco, and manacores that have helped drive the Kingdom’s current era of unprecedented growth and expansion. A tropical island in the Keridian Sea, Xayawak boasts lush forests, stunning beaches, and a variety of beasts and monsters that exist nowhere else on the planet. The informed traveler can enjoy a refined culture that rivals Saxol itself—including a fully functional implementation of the Imperial System—while still experiencing the spectacle of the exotic beliefs and society of the liberated muwalla populace.”
-From The Well-Bred Traveler’s Guide to Xayawak
A young mage of mixed blood, caught up in the politics of Xayawak’s most elite school for the study of magecraft. A muwalla woman with a checkered past, now working as a maid to provide for her family in the slums. A magical cat with the memories of another life as a human, trying to survive in a dangerous and unfamiliar world. Providence will bring these three together, a convergence that will change Xayawak forever.

In an attempt to assuage the trauma his family has experienced and break away from his own shitty existence, Evan decides to grab his portion of the modern American Dream by trying out for that year's American Idol auditions in Nashville.

In 21st century America, anything is possible, or so Evan's been told by a cultural upbringing of "Follow your dreams" and "Everyone is special" and "True love awaits".
Speaking of true love, Evan asks Lily Trent to accompany him on the journey. Lily is a childhood acquaintance with whom he's recently reconnected and developed a crush on. Lately Lily's been working as a stripper, a cynical and jaded young woman who may or may not have her own motivations for joining Evan on the trip.

Together, Evan and Lily discover why learning how to fail may be their generation's greatest lesson.

My first attempt at writing LitRPG. I I'm learning as I go and therefore will probably stumble over numerous cliches of the genre and writing in general. Definitely a work in progress.
"There is often a great difference between what is on the surface, and what is truth".
The year is 2046. The world is advancing, technologies are advancing and becoming more advanced, and the world is progressing into a new age.
As science advances, people would therefore think less of the supernatural, believe in it less. After all, it does not reall exist right? But this is hardly the truth, as the world is far more wonderous then one can believe. There is things like magic and monsters in the world, spirits and supernatural events. Special agencies and police forces help keep the peace, and also to keep everything secret, but there is far more.
And one of the various supernatural secrets this world holds, lie within its myths and legends. The tales told and believed by many, the concepts of animal spirits and elementals, created special existences, or perhaps those legends were created from those special existences. Armor Spirits. Spirits based on animal spirits, mythological dieties, legendary heroes, and other famous stories and legends. Amid the world of magic, Armor Spirits is one of the more common things one can encounter. But for all the good legends, there are also plenty of bad.
And for one boy, they are about to be thrust into this world as a shadow creeps across his home. Will he be able to rise to the challenge? Or will everything fall into ruin? Only time will tell.
Bing Anxi has it all. An influential father, a cushy life in his sect, and peerless talent in cultivation. But when she and her friends get swept up in a global continent-spanning war, she must learn to adapt to her new responsibilities.

- The description and cover are subject to change (read as, they definitely will change)
- English is my first language, and while I can't make any guarantees about how good the story's going to be, I can at least promise the grammar will be serviceable. When I inevitably make mistakes, please leave a comment to let me know about them.
-Upload schedule depends on how my classes are going at college. Chapters will probably be in the 2.5 to 3.5k word count, and I'll be shooting for one every few days, again, subject to my classes' demands.
