    Hello everyone


    A story I've started writing a couple months ago. Transported to another world, pretty standard fantasy setting with my amateur attempt to make it a bit dark but funny. There are Litrpg elements here but I do hope it's not too heavy and annoying. The fights should be interesting and aren't just numbers vs numbers. Contrary to the title the protagonist will be quite an offensive fighter.


    Ilea Spears is your average black haired japanese high school student, no I'm kidding. She will be transported to another world rather conventionally and will be confronted with survival in the wild. There's magic, monsters and some numbers, cause I'm a nerd. And so are you.


    Don't expect anything special here. I just do this as a hobby from time to time. Give it a shot though and let me know what you think.


    I do appreciate criticism but please be more specific than "This is shit". Or at least use some imaginary vocabulary and write more than three words on why it's shit. Most people can improve so give them a chance to do so.


    Chapters usually 2.5 - 3k words

    The Earth is changing. Aliens invaded, bringing with them social upheaval, advanced technology and an armada of peacekeeping robots. But Alan, a college student pursuing a now-useless degree, cares little about all of this. He has only one thing on his mind: the Game.

    A fully immersive virtual reality, the Game appears to be a major part of the invading civilization. And Alan can't wait to play. Soon though, he realizes the Game is anything but simple, and the stakes are higher than he ever imagined.

  • Small Chests Are Fine Too

    Small Chests Are Fine Too

    561 pages by Exterminatus

    It is an undeniable fact that good things come in small packages. More often than not, it is necessary to trim the fat in order to bring what really matters to the forefront. Having extra bulk may seem like a good idea, but in reality it is merely a crutch that will one day become a hindrance, as it is no substitute for personality nor ability. Indeed, often times it is the small things in life that brighten up our daily lives and constantly remind us exactly why we do the things we do.


    However, it is important to keep an open mind, for while bigger is not always better, there are also times when it is. This holds especially true when it comes to hopes and dreams, which have been known to require a suitably large container from time to time. And while dreaming big could potentially lead to massive dissapointment, one will never truly reach fulfilment if they think too small.


    A truth that one small woman with meager aspirations is about to find out.


    DISCLAIMER: This is a spin-off/side story of my main series, Everybody Loves Large Chests, which is also mandatory reading to understand this one. It runs parallel to the main plot, branching off from the chapter titled Upheaval 2, so there will be spoilers for anyone who hasn't reached that point.

    For milennia, The Elders have gifted pre-technological civilizations with a piece of technology that allows them to transcend the bounds of what is normally possible: The Implant.


    Altering reality on a quantum level, creatures with an Implant can gain extraordinary physical and mental abilities. In return, the Elders require wearers of the implant to pass through the Gauntlets - Entire worlds that have been hollowed out and turned into a training and testing ground for the wearers. Once their trial is complete, the wearers then are used by the Elders as their foot soldiers as they expand across the galaxy.


    What happens when a human accidentally receives an implant instead?

    Real Fantasy Online. The flagship product for the latest generation neural-interface headset. Touting: "The Best NPC AIs", "Better than Life Realism" and "Total Immersion", RFO promises to be a virtual world like no other. But when the line between one's real self and one's digital identity becomes blurred, and the "Gods" have their own agenda, who is the player, and which is the game?


     


    Marcus has played any number of VR games, beta-tested dangerous and unstable systems and lived to tell the tale. He even has a certain amount of fame and influence within...certain circles. He usually disdains the idea of pre-orders and their respective "perks" as blatent commerical exploitation, but this time the bonus is too tempting to pass up. The ability to craft your character's backstory and have it integrated into the game's lore is enough for him to sign up for the Early Access program. He isn't interested in being all-powerful. Frankly, he's been there and done that enough to be bored of the whole thing. Instead, he opts to make a character purely for the purpose of having fun. Things aren't quite what they seem however, and his "backstory" and character class have implications he never would have imagined.


     


    Author Note: First time posting a story online, and I'd appreciate any feedback. Updates may be slow, as each "chapter" will likely be in the 10,000 word range and I tend to revise several times before being (tentatively) satisfied. If people seem to like this I'll try to establish a regular post schedule.

  • The Author Of Eternity

    The Author Of Eternity

    68 pages by The Red Writer

    "Do you want to live forever?"


    The answer to this question is usually yes, despite the seemingly endless stream of cautionary tales based off such an offer.  But really, who can say no to an offer of immortality? To never grow old, to never get sick, to never die...


    Once, Evren was a man who would have easily accepted such an offer. Once, he believed that he could never grow bored of living in a world so full of life, adventure, and mystery. So when he recieved a seemingly-miraculous offer from an ancient being, he didn't hesitate to accept. 


    But every deal has a price, no gift comes without strings attached, and some might say that immortality is the greatest gift of all. Not Evren, though. 


    No, for Evren, immortality is naught but a curse that he desperately hopes to be rid of- No matter the cost.

    Author's Comment:
    I was asked about reading my work on other sites.
    The answer is simple: Currently I am not active in any other networks than royalroadl.com. Only here, I correct mistakes and errors.

    If you read it anywhere else and have to pay for it, or have to deal with an annoying amount of advertisement, You Are Being Betrayed.
    You would do good if you make other people in that network aware of it. This is a free project of mine for the purpose of having fun. And if people try to make money with it you shouldn't bother visiting their website.

    The only one whom I actually allowed to have my work on his website is Armaell who invested the time to compile them into pdf.

    My world faced its end, but I refused to perish with it! So I intercepted a summoning ceremony from another world.
    One moment!? My summoner tried to summon a demon? Fuck it, I think it's better to break the contract and do my own thing... or not? Why is Mrs. Sacrifice hugging me? And why am I suddenly a child!?

    I am not entirely sure how this fiction will turn out. And I am not sure on the tags either. They may change. Bear with it.
    As always, how chapters turn out is up to my mood.
  • Tidal Lock

    Tidal Lock

    405 pages by ResonantIce

    Humanity has finally taken the next step into space. Governments run research stations throughout the solar system while private enterprises mine asteroids for rare metals and exotic minerals. However, space remains beyond the reach of the everyday person. In contrast, virtual reality technology has led to an explosion of full immersion entertainment for the average consumer, and many people turned to VR for the thrill of spaceflight.

    One game, Parallax Gate, lets its players experience living in an interstellar civilization. For maximum realism, its developers created a world solely defined by the players' personal skills and ability.

    Mark Asami, a student of aerospace engineering at MIT, dreams of bringing spaceflight to the masses. To his disappointment, his first year courses barely relate to his interests, so he passes time as Aero Rayne in Parallax Gate with his roommate and their organization, the Temple Wraiths. Before they realized, a chain of in-game events drew them deeper into the game's world and politics than they ever intended to go.

    Who Says This OL Can't Become A Splendid Slime!?

    326 pages by Shinde

    A journey that began with a simple wish, taken horribly out of context.

    'Ah, I wish that I could change my life. I wish for something truly exciting to happen.'

    Follow our heroine as she surmounts increasingly difficult odds! As she battles with heavy topics such as 'Is it really safe to eat this?', 'How am I supposed to slay a wyvern!?', and the ever popular 'Does this shade of pink make my slime look fat?'

    "For the record, I've never asked that last question you bastard narrato—"

    Follow her as she traverses the world and seeks out her destiny! Thrown into the wild with nary a leg to stand on, what will our gelatinous heroine do next? Will she become a savior? Or this world's very own Demon King!?

    "Wouldn't you mean Queen? Aside from that, please stop talking like I'm not here."

    But at the end of the day, there is one foe that she just may never slay. Despite all her efforts, will she be able to overcome the barrier that is ... her marital status!?

    "Alright, I'm going to devour you too."

    We hope you enjoy the thrilling conclusion!

    "It really isn't that exciting. Please don't expect too much."

  • Savage Divinity

    5195 pages by ruffwriter

    A modern man finds himself reincarnated in the body of a young slave with no skills and quickly fading memories. Follow his journey to find normalcy while living in a savage world, filled with myth and legends, monsters and Demons. In a land where the strong rule, the weak serve, and bloodshed is a way of life, peace is a luxury few can afford.


     


    Author's note: Expect a chapter every tues/thurs/sun, unless I start writing faster. The story is eastern themed, but not Xianxia, no chasing immortality, MC is not OP. Less action, more character and world driven is my aim. Mature language and themes, but no raunchy sex. It's my first story, constructive criticism would be appreciated.

    Mercs are causing trouble in my city. They are hunting someone, whatever the cost. It’s not like I care that some lowly humans died, but if I don’t act now it would set a bad example. So what would the hero do? Probably he would save the victims and protect them while the enemies keep coming…


    Yeah, as if I would ever do something so troublesome! They aren’t calling me the demon lord for no reason. I suppose I’ll just shoot the victim and be done with it.
