    The Breath of Creation [DROPPED]

    865 pages by lightningwarrior21

    General Summary:


    Sometimes, the multiverse needs expanding. That's where I come in. But, unfortunately, being a deity isn't all fun and games (and is incredibly complicated), as there are always things working against you. Not even the God of the Multiverses can change that. 


    Another Summary:


    Twelve souls were chosen to expand into the void surrounding the known universe(s), and were given a grace period in which they would experience a relatively safe expansion of their domains. Once that period is up, however, they are free to interact with each other...and what lurks in the depths of the Abyss, the Void, and the Primordial Chaos. I am one of those souls. And let me tell you, this shit ain't easy. Between trying to raise mortals into an immortal army, with which I can defend my domain, dealing with my children, and trying to maintain the balance between all realms of existance, I have my work cut out for me. Sigh. Now I know why, back on Earth, gods worked in mysterious, invisible ways. There's just too much to be done.

    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.

    The OneShot goes FullStory. Trying to go a little more SciFi and alternate reality this time.

    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.

    Apocalypse Born

    471 pages by artifex

    The world as we know it ends in the year 2000. Over the course of a week, billions die and the survivors are faced with a reality that no longer makes sense. Can they fight back against wizards, monsters, and robots in a world where none of the old rules seem to apply, and their only ally is a mysterious heads-up display that reads like a particularly uninterested narrator?


    Well, that part of the story's mostly done.


    Hunter, instead of being alive in the age of heroes and martyrs, bravely fighting for the future of his entire planet, is born in 2003. By the time he can walk and talk, humanity has already fought back the worst of its demons and settled into its new status quo. What's an easily bored kid supposed to do in the Midwest when there's all this magic and nothing to do with it?

    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.

  • The Perks of Immortality

    The Perks of Immortality

    266 pages by cjet799

    After living decades and dying hundreds of times, Kegan has learned that he has finally passed some test that the cruel spirit had given him. Now, Kegan has the ability to gain “perks” that can make his life much easier. He is looking forward to finally having an easy life with the new perks he has earned.




    Rules to keep me honest for the perk system:



    Spoiler: Spoiler





    I want to avoid one of the pitfalls I see for other LitRPG stories where the game elements barely relate to the story, or offer very little information. If people are skipping over and not reading the perks then I'm doing things wrong. So I promise to try and make the perks interesting, sometimes humorous, informative, and relevant to the story.

  • Luck Lockyer

    Luck Lockyer

    1144 pages by MageOfSacks

     


     


    Luck Lockyer was the type of man to smirk in the dark, the expression not for anyone but himself. One of perpetual amusement. The bright side of things were hard to find in the shade yet his amber eyes were always searching. The smirk was his default, he knew it, his friends knew it, his family knew it. It was his most natural state.


    But the death of everyone close to you can affect a downwards curve on the mouths of even the most stoic people.


    Without purpose, without anyone to do the job for, Luck Lockyer found himself inside an empty forgotten church. The perpetual smirk on his face had slipped to a thin line, his scar more noticeable now than ever before. His amber eyes, the windows to his soul, dull and lifeless. To anyone who knew him, it was the clothing that gave away his mental state, denim pants and a plain black t-shirt. If that wasn't enough, the tears running down his face certainly would, the echoing sobs of a broken man rang across the rundown church.


    It was on a whim, but Luck Lockyer prayed, he prayed for many things, for death, revenge, friends, but the one prayer dominating his thoughts, a second chance for his family.


    That was all he wanted. Simple.


    It was then, on the outskirts of a polluted city, in an abondoned lot, in a forgotten church that Luck Lockyer, the Devil of the Cards, the Bloodless Hand, the Amber Demon, the Broken, was answered by a being from another world and one from his.

    The humans of Astalon have always wondered what lay beyond their home. At night, the skies give all that observe a reason to ask that question. In midst of the stars, beyond the moon and the edge of the world, what is there to see? What wonders await? 


    In the place after the world, in the great Beyond, what could possibly be lurking? With the answer came Convergence; the merging of worlds.


    Astalon. Caereith. Ibbeathis. Kalsdyn. Ilbithar. Blackrend. Cassima. Ooum. The Everfrost.


    Nine names. Nine realms.


    Brought together in a single, great collision, nine of the uncountable number of realms in Beyond are destined to converge and eventually become one. In this mess, one boy immediately finds his life thrown into disarray with the entry of a mysterious plane-crosser. A girlan Amarid from Caereith that has accidentally found herself crossing into Astalon, and straight into a collision course with Theodore Auric's life.


    Now armed with his quill, a notebook, and an unlikely friendship, Theo raises fate a single question.


    What could possibly go wrong?
