Vainqueur Knightsbane is your average dragon: a giant, fire-breathing lizard who loves to take naps on his golden hoard, kidnap princesses for fun, and make the life of adventurers miserable. Vainqueur's only pleasure in life is to watch his treasure get bigger, one coin at a time.
So when a would-be thief turned unwilling minion tells him about "classes," "levels," and "quests," Vainqueur wonders if maybe, just maybe, he should consider a career change.
After all, why bother hunting monsters for free when you can get paid for it?
Qube is an NPC in an AI-driven VR-RPG who avoids her scripted death and blithely continues following the Player, trying to make sense of the normalised nonsense of Fantasy RPGs and accidentally glitching out the world in stranger and stranger ways as she seeks to be the very best Childhood Companion ever.
It’s a loving parody of old school RPGs, high fantasy, and every gamer who has ever thought “what happens if I do this...”

Large chests are said to encompass all manner of hopes and dreams. Men covet them. Women envy them. But one fact holds true - everyone wants to get their hands on some big ones.
The same holds true for one intrepid adventurer - a strapping young lad by the name of Himmel. Armed with his grandfather’s trusty longsword and the dream of being the strongest, he sets out on the journey of a lifetime! It is sure to be a long and dangerous road, fraught with danger! And it all starts with a simple test - reach Level 5 in the dungeon called the ‘newbie zone’ and earn the right to become a full-fledged adventurer!
However, such things get hopelessly derailed when his adolescent mind beholds an exposed chest for the first time. A fateful meeting that would inevitably lead his life in a direction he never even dreamed of!
This fiction is written, maintained and owned by Neven Iliev. It is also a participant of the WriTEr's pledge.
If evil was easy, everybody would be doing it, and there would be more Dark Lords running around than you could shake a stick at. But the road to Utter Domination isn't easy, smooth or straight, as the boy who will one day become Gar the Pitiless will discover.
What is my 1000-year-old monster self to do when I’ve failed my immortal ascension? Time travel —accidentally— and wind up back in my 9-year-old body, needing to re-cultivate, of course. But after that? Get REVENGE! Muahahahaha!
But the idiot who killed me —also accidentally— was the main character of the dumb harem Xianxia I transmigrated into. But wait. Wasn’t he only 7 or 8 at this point in time? Well, since I can’t harm a child or the main character without suffering in some way, then I’ll just have to raise him better, faster, stronger, and loyal! Muahahahaha!
This is a Xianxia comedy and satire by the author of Cold Steel Dig and Tome of Stealth. But it is also a series of interconnected and chronological short stories (featuring the same main characters).

A young man stumbles into a deep, lost cavern, he seeks power and prestige, the ability to become someone, anyone, worthy of praise.
When he finds an ancient crypt festooned in jewels and precious things he thinks himself the luckiest man alive.
And then the lich in that crypt wakes up and kills him.
That’s me. I’m the lich. Honestly, I just want to go back to sleep, and there’s no one, no ‘god emperor,’ sect, or uptight martial artist that’s going to stop me.

What is a woman to do after reincarnating? Her cultivation crippled, the realm she inhabited foreign, and even her old name lost to her. There was one familiar comfort left to Daphne in these trying times: shopping.
There were some fates worse than dying Daphne supposed. She could have been poor.
This is a comedic take on the adventures of a xianxia cold beauty.
Some dude falls into another world and decides he’d rather live as the Heroine than go out and fight to death as the Hero. He might have changed his mind if he’d read the terms and conditions, though.
WELCOME TO THE RETROFUTURE!
Join sassy space cat Lee and his Desert Eagle-toting, soda-swigging human partner, Ali, in a future that never was. Board the dynamic duo’s ship, the mythical Kitty, as they bounty-hunt their way through a solar system where the Soviets got to the Moon first; where space is a faceless and lawless void; where cats talk and pizza comes in a can. It’s a historical future as only the 80s could have built it—so lock and load and shout Cowabunga! because it’s crime-fightin’ time!

Charles was an old man. A widower. Retired. He spends his days watching old movies and waiting for his kids and grandkids to call. And doing that is all he wanted to do in the short time he has left.
Then his long-time friend Bert, one of the last living ones he has, reaches out to offer him a chance to play a game. A virtual reality simulation that could give him another way to spend time with his family. So he seeks to find a place within the game, a place for his family to visit.
With a magic stick levels above what any starting player should have, Charles sets out on a journey to find the perfect place to entice his family to visit. But the game and the players have other ideas. Set up as an NPC quest giver to some, and antagonist to others, how will Charles find his place and what will he have to do to get there?
This is a work of fiction, any similarities between etc. etc. etc. Please don't sue me.
This is Vol 1 through 4 and is intended as a series of Novellas and a light read. Thanks for checking it out!

Evil Overlord: So Much Dominating is the direct sequel to Evil Overlord: The Makening.
Gar the Pitiless has decided he wants only one thing out of life: Utter Domination. In So Much Dominating, he sets about getting it. But will his Vision and Mission truly be enough to put a fractious, uncooperative world under his heel? There's only one way to find out, and that way will be paved in blood, treachery and pain. Along the way, Gar will once again provide would-be Overlords with his sage advice.
Hilda is a small paladin with a small dream. A home of her own where no one will wake her up at sunrise to do the dishes. Her path to glory will include a lot of dead rats and copper pieces. At least that's that plan. Who knows though? Maybe at some point something cool will happen to her. Unlikely. Nothing cool ever happens to poor Hilda... but who knows?
Updates on Mondays and Thursdays.
This is an ongoing series that currently includes:
Stranded inside the world he'd been writing about for years, Arwen is left at the mercy of the characters and setting he'd so lovingly created.
Now trapped and powerless save for his knowledge of the secrets the world holds, he has to find his way back home. Hopefully to make it there in one piece.
But things aren't going to be easy, as the further he plunges into his world, the more he will realize things aren't quite what he thought them to be.
This story is a case study on a realistic approach to isekai as well as what it means to "know" someone / something, and to "KNOW" them.
There will be hard themes and uncomfortable truths, and just like with real life, it will show things as they are unfiltered.
All Fred wants is a chance to sing and dance on Broadway. This dream is looking increasingly unlikely, as he dies on the second page.
Reincarnation Station is a tale of dubious taste and even more dubious humour. An absurdist exploration of death, dungeons, and dance coupled with mind-bending philosophical questions such as whether or not a jaffa cake is really a cake or just a pretentious biscuit.
WARNINGS: Puns. Stats. An Attempt at a System. Gore. Ballet. British. So British your blood will turn to tea. Strong language. You have been warned. There will be rude words. Likewise, if you are related to me in anyway, turn off your device and walk away right now. Life is awkward enough as it is without having to discuss this over dinner.
The afterlife isn't what Theo expected. For starters, he hadn't expected there would be one, let alone that he would wind up in management.
Drafted into service, Theo has no choice but to compete with his rivals and outwit the Administration whilst running the best hell he can.
A callous human trafficker and underworld crimelord that takes advantage of less fortunate and weaker people is reincarnated as a low level enemy in a JRPG-esque world.
Being the weakest creature in the known world is supposed to teach him some humility, or at least make him suffer. But he has other plans...
On a remote planet, life had always been the same. The same cycle of birth and death, over and over.
That is, until one day, the world changed. Beings from out there, out of the endless beyond came to the planet and nothing would ever be the same. The cycle would be forever changed.

The story continues, following the events of its predecessor.
In the anime world, Satovia, Clyde still battles the anime tropes, but no longer dances at the fingertips of the watchers. However, his friends have real issues, problems that intertwine with his own mission. Casting away selfishness, he finds himself awakening his real power.
The Anime Trope System volume 2 brings with it, humor, anime tropes and… yanderes, references, perverseness, and a lot of character development.
So, let’s level up and accidentally capture the hearts of anime girls while at it…
Volume 3's description.
The Anime Trope System is back in a 3rd action-packed, humor-packed, adventure in Satovia. Clyde’s next threat comes in the form of a classmate.

Well, try telling the vampires not to crash the damn party.January's volume arrives, a fourth book containing Clyde and his amazing party, humor and ass-kicking, happy and sad moments.While Clyde continues to strengthen himself so that he wouldn't die to the Viper, figures and organizations begin to move in the background. Join again to accidentally capture more anime girl hearts and combat those tropes...
Volume 5's description:
Ah, peace! Exams, a tiny break from the fighting, relaxation. Yeah, right. First of all, who left a certain potion in the fridge! Second, what will it take to get some common sense into the team ninja’s head. Clyde would like to know. Third, it is time to face a threat that has lurked in the city since volume 1…Clyde and his party is back in February’s issue, ready to dish out some fun in Satovia. Welcome to the fifth volume—and more anime shenanigans…
A questline mentioned in the very early volumes has finally pulled Clyde's interest. Niyoto. However, it isn't some side quest or filler. In this city, things will get very interesting. From being introduced to a quite frightening faction that claim to fight for the good of humanity, crazy cultists, a demon lord with a rather...different personality, the sixth volume comes in strong.Clyde and his party is back in March's issue to take a step toward the ultimate goal of being strong enough to defeat the Viper.And the anime tropes continue to show themselves. Do you believe in the heart of the cards?
Volume 9: stakes incredibly high, very intense! A dark volume. Can the team bounce through this?
MISTAKES WERE MADE
Obi Imsi enjoyed his life as an overpowered paladin tryhard filled to the brim with beautiful women who loved him unconditionally for all the wrong reasons.
Everything was going great until he tried to woo the wrong one and was polymorphed into a literal trash can.
Starting back at level 1, he must find someway to regain his power and hopefully return to his real body.
He soon finds that his new life won't be easy, and he embarks a fantastic fantasy adventure that's so bad, it's good (terrible).
Formerly known as Harem Trash, renamed due to disturbing lack of harem (crow harems don't count).
Updates on weekends.
Once the story is complete, it'll stay up for a few weeks until I take it off to put it on market.
When evil kings summon kids from Earth to be used and abused as fast-leveling soldiers in their petty wars, the Isekai Police will be there to stop them. A group of ex-isekai protagonists in their own right, they utilize their collective skills to fight for the end of summoning abuse.
Artyom Choi, cynical ex-hero and founding member of the organization, is sent to investigate the presence of an Earther on an innocently idyllic World where no summoning has supposedly taken place. His mission: rescue the Earther and figure out how he got there. Dark secrets lie beneath the surface of paradise, however. Will he be able to find this new hero and get out before whatever malicious forces brought them there doom them both?
New chapters on Monday and Friday, 7 pm pst!
This story is meant to be a deconstruction of the isekai genre that references and sometimes pokes fun at various tropes. Artyom isn’t some kid whose goal is to amass Levels or a harem. In fact, all he cares about is protecting other Earthers, and won’t let anything like that get in the way! So expect to see:
-A mature main character who still has some flaws.
-Character development over the course of the story.
-No harems! (see last point)
-A vibrant world full of interesting people, deep culture, and mysterious lore that gets uncovered as the story goes on.
-Plenty of funny moments along the way!
-The presence of a few cliched tropes and stereotypes only for the sake of poking fun at them.
So step in, take the first leap, and uncover the next hot take on this expansive genre!
