James was in his 30's when his death came suddenly, not that he minded much, as life was seeming to drag on.
His story, however, did not end with his death.
As a point of fact, it had only just begun.
This will be my first work, so please by all means comment with any errors I may have made. Suggestions for the story (which may or may not be used). This is a litrpg and a bit of a power fantasy, so be warned the protagonist will be pretty OP eventually.
Sophia is summoned to another world as a Hero. She and the others fail. Humanity falls before the monstrous horde. She awakens in her seventeen-year-old body, given a second chance by an unlikely ally.
This time she will not become a mere White Wizard and Sage, but ascend to the heights of Grand Archon. Sophia will show her fellow Heroes the path to victory and burn the army of her enemies to ash.
The demon lords will tremble as they face a foe as terrible and powerful as they are.

Earth is in turmoil. Fiction of travel to other worlds through the use of magic take on airs of prophecy as youngsters all around the world disappear. Amidst this turmoil, one New Yorker is caught in a traffic accident and chosen by Loki to travel to another world. The god's offer was not a fair one.
But they came not as the Trickster's champion. Their purpose, a sinister one. One that will earn them the enmity of the world. A Heroic destiny is not in their future.
Their only ally is the impartial and pervasive System. Unable to be purged, they came to stay.
Thrown in a barbaric world where life is a dime a dozen, the intruder tries to survive and escape the wrath of the native deities. All the while burdened by divine curses imposed upon them by Loki.
The silver lining is that they can come back. Again and again. Only to restart the chase.
This fiction contains gore, sexual violence, torture, brutality, psychological and physical trauma, and no plot armor whatsoever. Portrayals of racism, misoginy, prejudice, and random violence will happen without warning. There won't be graphycal displays of smut or porn, however. That's important, somehow.
If any of the above can offend you or your sensibility, please don't read. The themes displayed are intended as criticism on why they are bad. The characters' reactions and opinions are their own and don't reflect the author's worldviews.

When Raven Night was alive she had, since the age of three, been trained into a deadly killer and by the age of 25 her prowess had become legend; she was beyond a shadow of a doubt the most deadly assassin the world had ever seen. They called her the night songstress and every man and women in power feared to one day hear her "singing" - for it would be the last thing they would ever hear. It was then that the young miss Night was sent on a mission she refused to complete, and as a consequence she was hunted down and killed. As darkness claims her, she cannot help but feel resentment - would her countless slaughters, on other peoples command, be her only legacies!? However, to her surprise, the darkness faded once more and she found herself reborn in a world of magic and martial arts. Perhaps this time around she would create a better legend for herself?

What do you get when you put the mind and soul of a lazy weeb into the body of the most ferocious and savage species ever concieved by the mind of man? You get Dah Ork Life! Both Cunningly Brutal and Brutally Cunning, Felix strives to become the stronkest and killiest Ork that ever was, all the while struggling to find a proper balance between the wisdom of man and the ever encroaching fury and madness that permeates every aspect of Orkish life, all set in the most horrific and dystopian sci-fi fantasy universe ever dreamed up by the nightmares of man, the Warhammer 40k universe.
Born in a spaceship poised directly for one of the Bastions of the crumbling Imperium of Man, the planet of Armaggedon, Felix must strive to both survive, and cope with the necessities that come with his second chance at life. And he has no intent to squander this second chance, even at the cost of a tarnished and dirtied soul.
This story is on hiatus/abandonned.
People die, then that's all... or at least, it should be that way. There may be anomalies, yes – the occasional hero of old getting reincarnated for some obscure purpose – but who knows what the gods are thinking. If they are thinking at all. If there are gods, to begin with.
What would explain such a mistake, then? The hero mark wasn't given to our reborn champion, but to his perfectly normal sister. A prank from these mindless gods, perhaps. Luckily for him, he was done with this hero business and had other plans for his new life, so it's all good... Here is the story of one who isn't meant to stand among heroes, kings and emperors anymore, yet will find himself holding power over them.
She used to be a bright child. She was just not fortunate enough to have a normal life. Ill and bed-ridden, she slowly lost affect and cut herself off from outer reality, as her only joy was to construct a complex fantasy world. And eventually, she met her demise.
Nevertheless, her story did not end here. Who is to say that Death is our last path? For her, it was just the beginning. She had been given a second chance. Reborn as a Goddess in the very own world that she created, it was now only up to her to write her own story.
‘This time, let’s try to live normally.’
Warning: Slow Character Development, Frequent Hiatus
About the releases: Do not expect regular releases. I can no longer stick to a specific release schedule, so the chapters will be released once the entire arc is done, which implies long hiatus periods between arcs.
About the tags: Although there are game elements, there are absolutely not the focus of the story so this isn't exactly a LitRPG.

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.

- LitRPG elements introduced in Chapter 5. Start increasing Chapter 7/8. The majority of LitRPG fans that read up to Chapter 9 keep reading.
- This isn't a tower climber story.
- It's written as a first-person narrative. Experience the world through the MC's eyes, thoughts, and viewpoint.
- The MC speaks a tad archaically, but it's simplified. Archaic elements do ease up after the first six or so chapters. Still, if your grasp of the English language is poor this novel may be tough for some people.
- The cover was commissioned for use with this novel only. Artist (Possible NSFW Material)

The Red Lands
Starting alone from the bottom can be such a pain.
A story of being transferred to a new world.
If you are looking for a shocking OP character, this is not him.
If you are looking for a young master with abundant wealth this is certainly not it.
Maybe a poor slum child with a hidden past and bloodline. Poor yes, dirt poor. Full stop.
Incredible knowledge. Aside from some skills in business, nothing.
This is just a tale of an average individual trying to make the best of what he has.
An average human salary-man was transmigrated into the body of a boy from the slums. What made it worse was that it was a completely different world. Armed with only basic knowledge from his past life and nearly nothing from his present, he strives to survive.
Curiosity can become a deadly driving force for any human being. It all depends on who is wielding it.

Aperio had been a slave for as long as she could remember. She toiled away in the palace of her masters, her body forced to obey, her mind no longer caring that she did. Her only joy was the small inconveniences an error in her work could bring, the resulting punishment a small price to pay. When the news came she was to be sacrificed in a grand ritual, she welcomed it—for most, death was a cause for grief and mourning, but for Aperio, it was her only way out.
However, during the final stages, something went wrong. Fate intervened, and Aperio found herself in a world she no longer knew, with powers beyond her wildest dreams. No longer a slave to the Empire, she set out to find her place in the world, and enjoy true freedom for the first time in her life.
Please do keep in mind that this story is a first draft and training exercise for me and, while I do try my best, mistakes will still be made. Writing in a foreign language is sometimes harder than you think.

Dalric had many names. None were as fitting as his last, Dalric the Deathseeker. Born from an unwanted mating between the greatest warriors of the time, death was his only true kin. It birthed him, molded him, and now standing in the middle of a lifeless battlefield, it drenched him. The blood of thousands of soldiers soaked his skin. Two hundred thousand men approached him that day. All of them sought his life, none of them left with theirs. But they would not die in vain, they had accomplished their mission. Hidden beneath a thousand layers of their blood, was Dalric's very own.
Feeling his life fade, he gazed weakly at his work. A seemingly endless array of corpses laid battered and disfigured before him. Some bore faces of horror, most had no face at all.
His most trusted companion floated in front of him, blocking the view. Waves of sorrow flowed between them.
“My time has finally come. I’ve begged for death and it’s finally arrived. My work is done...and so is yours. You’re free to be who you were meant to.”
With his contract with the gods fulfilled, they were truly free. The centuries of torment would end. No longer would they have to walk the path of a monster.
Little did Dalric know, the devil was in the details.
What To Expect: A good time. In a few more words than that, a cast of believable characters in a unique world dealing with conflicts and problems a little bit more complex than punching the big evil guy in the face. Just a little though.

Author's note: I love the idea of kingdom-building novels and think the genre has a lot to offer, but I don't think many authors do them very well. Here is my attempt. The novel has a strong focus on politics and kingdom building, with occasional action and a bit of humor. Have fun.
