    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.

    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.


    I have no problem with translation and reposting of the story, as long as the person in question isn't doing it for money or stealing my identity.


    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 Author Of Eternity

    85 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.

  • Savage Divinity

    Savage Divinity

    5387 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.

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

    408 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."

    The gods have been known, in times of great need, to summon a hero from another world. In ages past, they have summoned mighty warriors from other universes to fight as their champion and save the world from darkness.

  • Modern Age Online

    Modern Age Online

    774 pages by Zrail

    It is the Future. The realm of online video game entertainment has grown, creating vast and wonderous worlds for people to explore and enjoy.


    This is the story of Kaleb, a young gamer, and his adventures in the latest Super-Hero Virtual reality MMO: Modern Age Online. Join him as he takes on villains (both player and NPC), joins forces with other player heroes, and even deals with some of the bureaucracy of being a hero in a perfect virtual recreation of the world. No cheats, no guides, just one newbie Super-Hero against the forces of villainy in his new virtual home.


     


    Update Schedule: I am gonna try and keep it at a chapter a day Monday-Thrusday, leaving Friday-Sunday to write ahead a bit. Leaving a buffer of chapters in case I miss a day. Thats the plan at least, we'll see how it shakes out. Of course this is subject to change in the face of personal emergencies and such.


     


    Notes: 1.) While not my first time writing, this is my first time throwing anything i've written at the tender mercies of the internet. All criticisms welcome. 2.) Just to inform people early: There is no evil corporation looking to control the world with VR, there is no Krueger-esque "if you die in the game, you die for real.", and this isn't a story of some OP harem-loving god of the system. Nothing wrong with those stories this just isn't one. This is a simple story about a guy playing a game and finally 3.) This story is extermely rough, i did very little editing, this is just me gauging interest really.


    oh, and english is my 1st language, if for some reason you find that important.

    About a boy who isn’t quite normal and doesn’t see himself as a human being, but is taught differently as he finds out about the world's secrets. Though not everyone is happy about his existence.

    This is inteded to evolve into a full blown space opera with elements of magic thrown into it.

    ———————————————————————————————
    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.
    As always, how chapters turn out is up to my mood.

Through all of this, an enigmatic traveller makes plans with jarls, scribes, and priests for his own purpose. Abroad, powerful forces sense division in the realms of Adalmearc and make their own plans. It is only a matter of time before schemes clash, plots collide, and conflict erupts.

  • Luck Lockyer

    Luck Lockyer

    922 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 thief was confident that it would be another heist like any other. Steal the mark, get paid, retire, gamble away any money not spent at brothels, and come out of retirement. Again. That was how it was supposed to go. Only, the woman he was stealing from was a noble vampire, and he wasn't expecting to get killed and reincarnated as a puppy. Now, left in the underground dungeon floors of the city's tower, the infamous thief must adapt to his four-legged and fluffier life and quickly if he doesn't want to get turned into a snack by monsters several times his size.


    To make matters even more difficult for him, he finds himself bound by a curse to not only hunt and devour the strong but to evolve and become his killer's cerberus. Though, none of these struggles are as difficult as the itch behind his ear that just won't go away.
