    Dreams Come True

    568 pages by Parky

    In a futuristic world of superheroes and supervillains, the ability to dream of another world doesn’t seem that applicable nor useful. But for Demund, who has recently sent off his best friend to the superhero training grounds—the Preliminary Islands—it was nothing but life-changing. For him, a rejuvenating vacation to a world of magic is now only a good night’s rest away. 


    As Demund explores his new world, reality around him begins to change. How will he manage to balance their existences together?

  • Lost in Love

    Lost in Love

    159 pages by OrderMaster

    My name is Alexander Halesworth, sole heir to a prestigious ducal house. Or rather, that’s what my identity is supposed to be now. I still haven’t gotten used to this whole situation yet.


    Not long ago I was just a humble store clerk. But shortly after getting into an unfortunate road accident, I woke up in the setting of an infamous Otome Game called “Lost in Love: A Heart Throbbing Romance in a Fantasy World~!”


    Yeah. It’s even trashier than it sounds. Don’t judge me, it was a gift from a friend.


    *cough* Anyway, this situation wouldn’t be too bad, except I ended up in the body of the worst possible person: the villainess’ older brother. Alexander has great looks, near limitless wealth, and a thoroughly rotten personality. In most of the game’s endings I end up dead or exiled. My family also falls to ruin, and don’t even get me started on what happens to my evil little sister.


    Well, whatever. If that’s the hand fate dealt me, then I just have to prevent the bad ends, right? And if I have no choice but to deal with this family’s baggage, I may as well enjoy myself while I’m at it. Being filthy rich and powerful has its benefits.


    For example, this cute maid who I get to tease whenever I want.


     


    (Male lead otome reincarnation, inspired by Akuyaku Reijo Ni Koi Wo Shite and similar works)

  • Adventures of an Old Dreamer

    Adventures of an Old Dreamer

    261 pages by TheEpicLotfi

    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.

  • Transcendence?

    Transcendence?

    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.
    (http://armaell-library.net/author/andur)

    ———————————————————————————————

    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.

  • The Abyssal Dungeon

    The Abyssal Dungeon

    498 pages by TheDeepDarkReef

    Something is stirring in the world of Vol, strange happenings and unusual events outside the norm cropping up far more often than ever before. This is the story of a dungeon, one birthed in an unnatural location, and its subsequent journey into the deep.


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    This is my first venture into writing for fun, and I'm hoping to keep this running until I run out of juice. With that said, I very much enjoy dungeon core novels, and wanted to do one a bit outside the norm. Hope you enjoy!

  • The Voice of the World

    The Voice of the World

    927 pages by ashkari

    Jason Elric used to be an ordinary college student living in the heart of San Francisco. He had a part time job, he played online games with friends he got along moderately well with, and he earned reasonably good grades. The worst he really had to worry about in life was turning in his coursework on time and not being late to class.


    Now, though? Now fighting for his life and running from a horde of giant frogs that want to make him their next meal is just another Tuesday.


    Thanks to a summoning ritual gone terribly right, Jason has found himself trapped in a world eerily similar to the role playing games games he used to play for fun. Unfortunately for the now ex-college student, everything happening around him is terrifyingly real and if he wants to survive, he’ll have to figure out how to exploit the system for his benefit before it’s too late.




    The Voice of the World is the first part of what is planned to be a multi-book, Isekai LitRPG story with crafting elements, set in the fantasy world known as Verdania. This is my first time posting online for public consumption, so bear with me as I work to find a style that people like.


    While I may occasionally write scenes that may deal with heavy concepts, expect this story to be primarily light hearted high fantasy. There will be a lot of common fantasy tropes involved, as this story got its start as a simple practice exercise, rather than any plan to actually post it. However, it’s grown on me, so I felt it’s worth sharing after all.


    Thus, if you’re looking for more serious/original/unusual stories, you might want to look elsewhere. For the rest of you, feel free to leave suggestions, as well as to point out grammar and spelling mistakes; I’ll do my best to make edits to correct them. I do my own editing currently, and it’s easy to miss things when you know what’s supposed to be there, so such call outs are highly encouraged.


    Content TLDR: No harems, probably no romance (unless it makes sense for the story later on) (it did, eventually), definitely no sex (keeping this PG-13 or close to it), limited profanity. Does/Will contain mixes of magic and technology (think Warhammer, Final Fantasy); copious amounts of blue tables; race, gender, and sexual equality concepts; crafting sequences; and (slightly, but not overbearingly) strong protagonists. If you don’t like these things, go elsewhere instead of downvoting people for content instead of writing quality.


    Update Time currently varies, due to personal injury, but the goal is 1/week on Wednesdays, with a possible smaller chapter on weekends if time/health permits.

  • Swamp Boy

    Swamp Boy

    641 pages by SciFiAddict
    While still a young child James was bought by the Sorceress Lauren. She told his desperate family that she was looking for an apprentice. In reality she recognized the great store of magical energy the young boy held and she desired to feed from him; and thus take his power for her own.

    The local people had another name for the Sorceress; they called her the Swamp Witch and most were in fear of her though they all needed her potions to survive living on the edge of Drake's Swamp.

    James would learn many things while being the slave of the Swamp Witch, many of them bad but his experiences would make him someone to be reckoned with.
  • The Ascendant: Endless Reincarnation

    The Ascendant: Endless Reincarnation

    161 pages by TheDreamForger

    My name is Richard Brooks. I died while saving a kid.


    Kicking the bucket at 28 was really depressing, you know? There’s so much I still wanted to do.


    But instead of passing on, I was thrust into an endless series of reincarnations. Whenever I die, I earn Karma points based on my achievements and growth. These points can be exchanged for weapons, spells, or other bonuses to make my next lives more interesting.


    “What kills me only makes me stronger!” Or something like that.


    Honestly, it feels like I’m stuck in an RPG. The difficulty setting can be pretty ridiculous too.


    Sometimes all I can do is grit my teeth in frustration as I die an ignoble death.


    But I won’t complain. Even when it’s dangerous and painful, I love life. This is all an opportunity; I’ll do my best, no matter what kind of sadistic fate the System throws at me.


    I will swing the warhammer of justice! Craft and enhance the most amazing artifacts! Overwhelm opponents with a barrage of auto-casting spells! Lead powerful vassals in Domain wars!


    All for the sake of creating an eternal sanctuary.


    With my unique power of Runecrafting, maybe I’ll even become strong enough one day to overturn fate… or at least find out what the hell is really going on.


    It might take a few hundred or a thousand lifetimes, but what’s the rush?


    I have all the time in the world now.

  • Joie de Vivre

    Joie de Vivre

    417 pages by raga

    A modern man chased immortality and found it.  In a mixture of good and bad luck, he was re-born as part of the Uzumaki clan from the Naruto-verse, some few years before their scheduled destruction.  But if Daichi were the sort to allow a little thing like fate to get in his way, he'd never have survived in the first place.  Dedicated, intelligent, chock full of ideas from a technologically advanced society, and perfectly willing to scorch the earth, he sets out to avert history. 


    Can he avert canon, save the Uzumaki, and forge his people into a mighty nation?  Or will he fail, dooming his clan to extinction?


    At the end of the day, all he wants is a good life.  And considering even Death itself didn't stop him, he pities whoever gets in his way.


    ==================


    Tags: Naruto, Reincarnation, OC, eventual multi-cross.


    ==================


    Author's (Brief) Note:


    Back by popular demand.  This was my first significant fanfic (and fic in general).  I wasn't happy with the writing as time went on, and took it down, but years later am still getting requests to put it back up so I guess some people liked it. 


    Newly re-released as I finish some minor editing, there are about 100,000 words (~360 RRL pages) already written, so releases should be fast until I catch up with the backlog.  That said, it may languish in hiatus at that point if the interest isn't high enough to merit continuing, so if you're the type to only read finished stories (or ones where the author promises to do so), I am very specifically not promising that.  On the other hand, if enough people read, like, review, comment, rate, etc. then it will get added to my writing schedule.


    Generally, the character is based on a “how badass could someone who hasn't done ridiculously crazy shit be? Or, how does someone with the potential, in another setting, with a lot of luck, to be a badass act and develop as a modern, productive member of society? And then how would they deal with the Naruto-verse?”


    Please, please do not judge my writing by this.  Unless you really like it, in which case fine, do, but recognize my other writing is likely better (unless it’s that one MTG/ASoIaF/SW fic I did over on SB as a speed-writing experiment, which is also pretty terrible).

    He was born anew in a world where martial arts were indistinguishable from magic.
    He’d only received a neuronet and meaningless desires from his past life.
    What lies ahead?
    He’d dreamed of adventure and freedom, but those dreams were taken away from him.
    The same way his mother, father, and sister had been taken away.
    They took his Kingdom, they even took his destiny.
    But he is willing to wage a war, against the whole world if need be, to bring everything back.
    Even if a whole army opposes him, his sword won’t waver.
    Even if the Emperor sends entire legions against him, his step won’t falter.
    Even if demons and gods, heroes and villains alike, unite against him, he won’t bend to their will. His own will is iron itself, unstoppable.
    His name is Hadjar and he heeds the call of the dragon heart within him.

  • The New Journey of an Old Soul

    The New Journey of an Old Soul

    1481 pages by Vihyungrang

    The story of a soul seeking new adventure in a new life. A secret wish to find some things he never really found in his old life. Will the universe have other ideas for him again? Warning: 18+ due to violence, language and sexual content Note: The story is complete. A/N: Since people seem to be skittish with the gender bender tag, I should probably mention that it does not play a particularily important part in the story. More in the beginning, less as the story goes on.

    Genesis. It is the end of countless stories. The end of thousands of universes, billions of planets, and trillions of lives. But what is taken may also be given, as shown in the story of Cael King. A young man of Earth, knowing only a life of study and work in the relentless and endless pursuit of satisfaction. This is the origin of his story.


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Inspired by the system used in The Legend of Randid.ly Ghosthound. The system is an homage but the characters, world, and story are unique. I will post as often as I can and, given that I am not starting work until July, that should be pretty frequently. If you have any suggestions or comments please feel free to leave them as this is my first story and I'd love to improve both it and my writing style.

    Prehistoric Barbarian

    435 pages by Mangroowe

    The future became a peaceful utopia in the Core Regions. No crime, no wars, no conflicts, even rude behavior is rare.


    People became complacent and lazy.


    The main character isn’t a hero or a typical protagonist. Calling him an… opportunist would be the least offensive probably. In this age, he’s sticking out like a sore thumb.


    Who would notice a few shady happenings when crime is a foreign concept and there is nobody to catch you?
