Nic Tutt is a good student. He excels at all subjects. But his education serves only one purpose—to gain entry into the Ransom School.
Ransom is the most prestigious school in the country. Its alumni are destined to become the future leaders of Ranvar. Politicians, statesmen and, in some exceptional cases, mages. Only the brightest and the best get into Ransom.
But Nic doesn't care about any of that. He isn't determined to get into Ransom to further his prospects or better his career opportunities. He has another reason to want to enter Ranvar's most famous school.
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.
The whole room is fully ablaze when the fire turns blue and even hotter. And I still keep my hands on the rune, ignoring the sizzling of my flesh. After a while I notice the blue, roaring flames on the other side of the window. At the edge of unconsciousness, I listen to the screams of people as they are taken by the Inferno.
If you find mistakes, pls tell, thx. I don't like mistakes.

Ever been a god? Well I was! Until I died.... and got judged by the other gods!
Apparently they didn't like the whole idea that my Faith is the only true one! Oh and for the record: The Apocalypse wasn't intentional, ok? Though, I admit that ultimatively, I caused it.
Seems like I got sent onto a vacation as punishment! Or so I hope?

An AI calling itself Schema has assimilated earth into its system. As a consequence, everyone gained access to status screens, power-ups, and skills. This AI turned these concepts from fiction to fact. It's easy to become intoxicated with leveling up and becoming stronger. To some, it's too good to be true like living out a dream.
For Daniel, however, it's closer to a nightmare.
He's in a bit of a predicament. Cracks in our dimensional fabric have unleashed terrifying beasts from dark, abyssal places. Schema organizes these cracks into dungeons, giving the native species of the planet a chance to fight back. Daniel finds himself trapped in one of these dungeons. Not long after, he discovers there's only one way out.
Kill or be killed.

All Hail the Tiny Snake God!
When life ends, many believe a soul is judged. Warriors might go to Valhalla, saints might go to heaven, and evil-doers go to hell... but what about someone who doesn't fall into any of those categories?
Well, some of them end up like... this.
From the online web-serial, comes a story of reincarnation, comedy, and the winding path towards existential redemption.
The Snake Report: All Hail the Tiny Snake God.
(Art in this post created by u/GedMerrilin)
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.
Unfortunately, the gods are not all-knowing, and they can make mistakes. Sometimes what they get is not quite what they were expecting...
What if Humanity wasn't the apex predator among the stars?
What if those true apex predators saw mankind and came to the same conclusion: Holy cow they're all adorable.
The They are Smol series takes place in the near future after a disasterous first contact and the subesquent accidental invasion of Earth. Humanity is being uplifted for many reasons; they provide new culture and art on the galactic scene, sure. They can also look at scientific and social problems in a new light - absolutely. Mainly though, it's just to get them to do something productive with their lives and stop setting everything on fire-
Humans, for their part, are oscillating between abject fear at the otherness of their new neighbors and the frustration that they keep placing things on the top shelf.
Marrow was old... older than me or you. Older than the nation he lived in. And older than anyone he knew. Which is not surprising, because he did not know anyone else. He had been sitting, or perhaps leaning is the more apt expression, in a closet for many, many years, and had done nothing but stare.
But eating, or rather chewing, a spider opened up another world to him. A world with a voice that was talking to him - to HIM! Marrow did not get what the voice was saying, but that was secondary at this point.
And Marrow started to feel restless.
If you like a sometimes quirky skeleton as the main character and want to ride along for its coming of age, or perhaps rather coming of sapience story... give it a shot. It is a litrpg context with skills, levels, heroes and monsters... and a skeleton. Not sure yet how fast the skeleton will level... we'll have to wait and see.
As a disclaimer... this is my secondary novel... my main story is ongoing and most of my time is dedicated to that. As such, new chapters will, at first, be rather infrequent and irregular. If things go well, I may shift more attention to the story, but we shall see how things go.
A teenager struggling after the death of his best friend finds himself in a fantasy world - one which seems to be an amalgamation of every Dungeons and Dragons campaign they ever played together. Now he's stuck trying to find the answers to why he's there and what this world is trying to say. The most terrifying answer might be that this world is an expression of the person he was back on Earth.
The most complete version of this is posted on Archive of Our Own. Chapters will be posted here at roughly 13 hour intervals (which will rotate timezones) for the next two or three months until it's been caught up to current.
When a down on his luck machine shop owner ends up coming into possession of a rundown suit of power-armor, he sees an opportunity to make some quick cash.
Unfortunately for him, the world of Capes is not one that you may enter and leave at will.
What should have been a quick sale to pay off his debts quickly grows into an ongoing series of events that serve only to drag him deeper and deeper into the criminal underbelly of the city he calls home...
Anthony has been reborn! Placed into the remarkable game-like world of Pangera.
However, something seems a little off. What's with these skills? Bite? Dig?
I've been reborn as a WHAT?!
Follow Anthony as he attempts to adjust to his new life, to survive and grow in his new Dungeon home!
The League's Fleet has policed known space for millennia, backed by mighty dreadnoughts that crushed any force that opposed them.
Now, on the edge of League space, a new foe threatens the centuries-long status quo, and it's up to two outsider species - the Dreeden and their allies, the Terrans- to try and save the League before this new threat consumes it.
Please enjoy this sci-fi space battle adventure, originally written for the HFY subreddit.

Transcendence? is a novel about reincarnation, love, hate and war.
And everything else that's included. It follows the main characters, as they climb to the top of their society. And lose their humanity in the process to become something beyond human.
It's settled in the same universe as Until death?. It can be seen as a prequel.
But I plan for it to be a stand alone book. Nobody has to read Until death? in order to enjoy Transcendence?.
There will be cool chapters, sad chapters, romantic chapters and funny chapters. Of course there will be boring chapters too. I believe that some explanation is necessary in every novel.
Though I hope that there will be more funny chapters. How a chapter turns out always depends on my mood.
Matt cannot wait to play Livia. He followed the beta testers' streams. In doing so, he realized that in a world where anything was possible there might be a place for him. While most people were creating warriors, mages and paladins, Matt had a simplier dream. Adverse to things like pain and dying, he opted for a less dangerous route. Using magic to farm the land. Arriving in Tallrock, a frontier town on the newly discovered continent of Gogland, he sets out to live that dream. Carving a living out of the wild and untamed land.
Currently in Hiatus.

I had previously started writing this story but became dissatisfied because of my lack of experience. Now, Age of Gods is relaunching with the same premise but many many changes. I hope you will all enjoy this journey with me!

There once was a boy that lived in a village with no name in a remote corner of a province in a grand empire. Every villager had their place, and his was a shepherd's. Despite that, or perhaps because of it, the boy was an avid dreamer, yearning for adventure between each book he read.
Decades go by in the blink of an eye and the young boy grows into an old man, yet remains a shepherd, watching his flock live and die in an endless cycle of life.
Yet, the old man dreams on about adventure, never too old to indulge in his delusions.
One fateful night, however, his endless prayer gets answered. Two immortals fall from the sky, and from their corpses, the old man acquires the means to strength in order to adventure.
What does the world have in store for Lao Chen?
This story has undertaken the pledge, assuring that the story will be written until its natural completion. God help me.
A Xianxia with a little twist.
Rated gore and traumatising, potentially triggering. Enjoy!
