    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.

    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).

    947 pages by S. Zaplosky
    When Jake is sentenced to a virtual world for crimes he definitely did commit, he finds that one bad decision puts him on a path he would never have picked for himself.

    Virtual reality worlds have become the preferred way of disposing of excess people, and some of the worlds are better than others.

  • 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.

  • Prehistoric Barbarian

    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?

    277 pages by Andrew Seiple

    Chase Berrymore dreams of adventure, excitement, and getting the heck out of her pastoral halven village.

    But when adventure finds her, she'll be scrambling to save everyone of her family and friends from a decades-old conspiracy. Outmatched in almost every way, she'll have to use her wits, charisma, and a bit of divine favor to figure out the path to victory. But the odds are bad, and even with an Oracle's foresight, she can't save everyone. 


    Even worse, she'll have to figure out ways to deal with the weird and nigh-immortal beings that call themselves "playas..."

    A litrpg romp with a very non-standard protagonist, set in the same world as the "Threadbare" books.


    CLAIMER: My name is Andrew Seiple. I am a writer, and I both write this story and own the rights to it.

    I will be posting this story on Spacebattles.com, SufficientVelocity.com, RoyalRoad.com, and my Patreon. I reserve the right to remove it from any and all platforms as needed to facilitate my sinister long-term plans.

    Sebastian only wanted one thing in life. A nice safe profession that let him stay behind the town's walls. His mother had other ideas, however. She insisted that he follow in his father's footsteps and become the town's greatest hunter, and as such she refused any and all apprenticeships he tried to secure. Sebastian's one solitary hope was that he possessed magic, and would be accepted into the Mage's Guild as a novice. Sometimes life gives you what you wish for, but in a way you never saw coming.

    13.AI

    222 pages by Saustin

    AI means Artificial Intelligence.



     



    But those words don't match Al, either of them. Neither Artificial, nor Intelligent.



     



    At least not at the beginning. No, an AI requires input, trial & error, and careful observation. But at that point, what makes it any different than human? How are binary choices any different than the choices in a human life.



     



    I wager that there is no difference. But what will he think?

    Until Death? (Refleshed Version)

    77 pages by Andur

    Ever been a god? Well, I was!


    Until I died.... and got judged by the other gods! Apparently, they didn't like the whole "My Faith is the only true one!" idea.


    Oh, and for the record: The Apocalypse wasn't intentional ok? In my defense, I want it to be known that my enemies threw the first stone and the whole 'Offer the other cheek' just isn't my thing.


    Seems like, for punishment, I get sent onto a vacation! ….or so I hope?


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


    Author's Comment:


    It's here, a rewrite? Yes! I would like to think that this version will have better grammar, better jokes, hopefully, everything better. Since it was my first work and started solely to improve my English, the grammar always caused me headaches when I looked at it.


    Well, and there are the plotholes which appeared with the whole multiverse thing that came with my other works... Let's just say that the first one was never written with the idea of turning it into a series.


    So let's get a shovel and fill-up the plot so that hapless readers won't fall into those pitch-black pits. They might break a knee! Or worse, vanish forever. 


    And now the disclaimer everyone knows:


    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)

    149 pages by Crimeus

    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.

  • Binary Soul

    Binary Soul

    1401 pages by Exterminatus

    So let's say there's this girl. A young girl who happens to be a highly-trained, psionically-gifted, nanite-infused, genetically-enhanced and emotionally unstable assassin that doesn't know the concept of 'mercy' or 'holding back.'


    Let's say she and her imaginary friend miraculously pass through the borders of reality into an alternate universe, crash landing into a world of swords and magic aboard a starship full of high-tech wonders.


    Now, let's also say the first person this borderline psychopath meets happens to be her doppelganger - a highly gifted mage who happens to have a few problems of her own, like a bad temper or a bad habit of chronic self-delusion.


    With me so far? Good.


    Now, what's the on the agenda for these two different people who happen to be the same person? Settle down, start a family and thoroughly enjoy life. Maybe get married and have some kids. How about befriending a violent alcoholic or defeating an ancient evil being? Perhaps kill a few dragons and wreck a city along the way.


    Anything can happen around the city of Runetap, after all. It's a place where bizarre and strange things occur on an almost weekly basis. The people living there have long abandoned silly things like common sense or minding the details. A giant flaming UFO streaks above the city in broad daylight? That's just another Tuesday. The City Guard even had the form for that, so believe me when I say this.


    It's your loss if you mind it.


     


    This is the light-hearted and fluffy tale of Ellie and Kira as they forge their own path of absurdity and crazyness across a world that often makes little sense. Loosely inspired by the Discworld series of books by Terry Pratchett, even though the author hasn't actually read any of them.


    Contains yuri, mature themes and the author's personal views on several subjects. Explicit content is kept to a minimum.

    Does NOT contain slavery, rape, drugs or any other similarly heavy themes.

    Advent: Red Mage

    175 pages by dm xanadu

    Book 1 of the Redmage series is being published on Amazon Kindle Unlimited. Due to the exclusivity clause, I have been forced to take down the vast majority of the book. You can read the entire book here.

    Drew Michalik was working in a top-secret facility in Washington, D.C.  when the Advent began. As all electronics in the world simply ceased to work, blue screens filled with information appeared before him.


    Drew gained access to a mana interface and a limited number of reality-altering crystals called Xatherite. Following the instructions on his vision-impairing screens, he ‘slotted’ his Xatherite and changed his fate: he gained the ability to cast spells.  Now alone in the dark, he must battle through the government bunker-turned-dungeon in a desperate bid for survival.


    Escape is only the beginning; the first of his many problems in the changed world. Drew will be tasked to not only survive… but to guide the rest of humanity safely through the anarchy.


    Light LitRPG elements, no harem.
