I was in my garage when the space elves addressed the whole world. They didn't call themselves space elves, of course. Most humans struggled to pronounce Khjurhnalva, so we opted for the easier version. They had a message for us: forces that had eradicated their species' males were now en route to Earth. Hungry for our resources, the alien hordes would annihilate everyone that stood in their way. The space elves offered us access to the System and asked for very little in return. After all, cooperation was vital to the survival of both our species.
I, Mathew Alexander Dunphy, know all of the above is bullshit. I saw the truth with my own eyes and heard it from their beautiful, delicate mouths. No one believes me, though. They call me mad.
What reason could the space elves have to lie?

Disclaimer: The "Strong Lead" tag means "Weak-to-Strong", and not immediately strong. If you're looking for an immediate Strong Lead, then this story isn't for you.
A young woman finds herself dead and is given the chance to reincarnate in another world with cheat-like magic powers. She accepts, only to find that this world treats magic users the same way hers did— by hunting them down for heresy.
My name is MELAS?! Like... Salem spelt backwards? Oh my God, and my mother is a Witch. I am SO going to be burned at the stake!
Melas is a story about action, adventure, and most importantly, survival in a world that isn't always kind to the MC. It's a slow progression fic, and although it is NOT a SoL/fluff story, IMO it's NOT a grimdark fantasy either; in fact, I'd be inclined to believe it's closer to the opposite, although sometimes 'dark' aspects of the world will be explored within the story. It takes some inspiration from the real life relationship between Witches and religion, involving a setting that is closer to the period of an industrializing world rather than the typical medieval fantasy-type setting.
It isn't the pinnacle of writing, nor does it pretend to be anything truly novel: I'm simply writing what I want to write.

This is a rewrite of the original of the same name. I do not recommend reading the original as this version is far superior.
A monster is born in the depths of the wilds, but she isn't like her siblings. Curiosity colors her every thought, and a hunger for understanding grows within this little creature. The world is full of wonders just waiting to be discovered! She's not just hunting for her next meal, her prey is something far greater: knowledge.
To satisfy her desires, she will travel far and wide with unlikely companions. After all, the greatest joy is to share your passion with kindred spirits, whatever shape they may take.
Aiming to update Monday and Friday!

Noah Fel was a [Ritualist] for the Collegium.
As a professor, his daily routine consisted largely of grading papers, writing apprentice recommendations, and helping to ensure that his students didn't blow themselves up.
Truly, it was a rewarding job.

Scheduling a new chapter for every Monday, as best I can.
Often late, but still releasing.
(Am I allowed to write author's notes in the Synopsis? Yeah why not- random thoughts, Go!)
I've never done this before, but I've got this neat leather-bound notebook and a will to write, so let's have an adventure!
If I do write something stupid, inconsistent, or strange, however... please do call me out on it?
I love well-meaning corrections, they're one of the best ways I could improve!
With all that out of the way, the author will sit here and transition into talking in the 3rd person while on break. It's the only time he's able to write. Don't worry, the work-break won't last long. Something is always sure to go wrong here at th

Temporary synopsis. I hate writing synopsis. Well, this is my second work. It's still in the draft phase, but please enjoy...
Cover by Adsterhappy...
As the daughter of a duke, Lady Alicia Senius expected to awaken her latent magical ability during her Blooming ceremony. She was not expecting her connection to the flowers of Fate to awaken memories of a past life, however, and certainly not memories that were somehow inextricably tied with her future. Now, Alicia must find a way to escape the fatal punishment that is the destiny of a villainous noble girl. In doing so, she might even alter the fate of the whole world.
This novel is a steampunk take on the otome villainess genre, heavily inspired by the late Victorian era of England and with a system of magic based around floweral circuitry. If that sounds like your cup of tea, why not give it a shot? It updates sporadically, but hopefully will follow a proper release schedule soon.
Milo, 30, has everything going for him—with the exception of a paying job, girlfriend, or anything resembling an active social life. None of that is about to change, but he will be transported—copied?—to another dimension where the rules are pretty different, so that’s…something.
Join Milo as he bids farewell to his sister’s spare bedroom and says hello to the magical world of Altabar, where he’ll encounter scary monsters with lame names, meet new friends, and learn where not to pee.
Buck Jones was born in 1850 and died in 1880. He was an outlaw, and technically still is.
The world may change, the species may differ, and the circumstances may twist, but Buck knows one thing for sure.

This is a coming-of age story of a kobold, set in a rather generic D&D universe. It is adult in that it certainly touches upon some sexuality, but it is far, far from anything that might be considered porn. It is ultimately a tragedy, but so is life. That doesn't mean it has to end badly, just that it has to end.
On present day Earth, a university student was run over by a truck.
When he awoke, he had discovered himself to be in a completely different world filled with magic. Not just that, he was also synchronized with a system.
Daniel: a normal person; friend of the hero, possessor of the system. He was an anomaly.
Watch how the protagonist interacts with the new world and how his existence starts to change the world. In this world, he will forge a new path unbeknownst to the gods.
Every other day or so, 4-8 pm est
The world, under the guide of the System, was prospering. The Dungeons gifted untold riches to those brave enough to challenge them, and the System watched and helped those who were willing to complete its Quests.
But not Charles. As soon as he appeared inside a dark cave, the system told him that he was an anomaly, that he was not worthy of its gifts.
His mind was damaged. His AI companion was convinced that he was in a world of sword and magic. All around, schemers and manipulators tried to play their part in a story that was thousands of years old. Spanning entire planes and worlds. And yet, he only saw what he wanted to see. For a while, it worked. Slowly, but inevitably, it became impossible. The threat was too big to ignore, the evidence too strong.
He was just a pawn in a game so large that it was impossible to comprehend.
At its center, the System. The System was not what it seemed. It was a tyrant, or maybe just a tool created by someone or something so powerful that it could control entire worlds.
And it had declared him its enemy.

In the year 2035, humanity broke the dimensional barrier and attached its world to another. Unfortunately, something was waiting on the other side and attacked.
Nearly 140 year later, humanity is trying to hold what is left of its world. Vic is a military asset for the United Forces of Humanity (UFH) and his job is to kill the orcs and their kin. While on a mission, he is exposed to an advanced technology which grants him powers beyond anything he has known. How can he use those powers serve humanity and its hope to take back the world?
Travel with Vic as he allies himself with elves, dwarves, gnomes and beastkin to battle the Invaders using a mix of ancient magic and futuristic technology.
This story has a magic, guns, crafting, violence, sarcasm, love, betrayal, swearing, blood, gore and some sexual innuendo. (No detailed sex scenes.)

You are walking west. You find a wishing well. You wish for it to grant infinite wishes for every human being on earth. The Universe is now broken. The current weather is apocalypse with chances of fallout and nuclear winter. Also, everyone is dead. Good job.

This is the story of a child.
One who should be dead, as nothing survives them.
But the child fled and was rescued, through an act that broke prophecies and shattered Truth.
Even though it was only an extended arm.
Now, after excaping true horror, she faces the challenge of the grim reality. She needs to adapt; to survive, but also simply to live.
Even though she was never meant to.
This a world of fantasy. Magic exists, marvelous creatures roam the lands. But in no way is this reality fantastical, magical, or forgiving. It is one ruled by the Imperatrix. It takes place in an Empire that was created on the ashes of the War. And as it is true everywhere, its rules are made by the powerful, the rich and the mindless masses.

This is my first time writing so I apologise for the grammar and spelling in advance. I'm open to criticism so please mention it in the comments and I will see to it in the future. No harems unfortunately sorry to dissapoint, but there is a lot of gore and scenes of a sexual nature.
When Lake wakes up in hell, he's a little upset. Those horrifying demons outside aren't helping, and neither is the fact that he has no food and water. At least he has a game UI to help him out! Hopefully the situation doesn't get worse from here...
Hellspawn is about a guy in an already bad situation getting thrown into an environment where everything is trying to kill him. It's a story that takes classic survival LitRPG tropes to their absolute limits while attempting to remain somewhat realistic. Lake's going to be tested in all sorts of ways, and even if he doesn't manage to escape, he's not about to let Hell stop him from having a good time trying.
I'm a novice writer. I'm going to make mistakes, and this story is still a bit of a work in progress. I'll probably go back and edit certain things in old chapters that I notice either from comments or from re-reading. Things like skill names, descriptions of enemies, or times and dates. If you're reading a recent chapter and are confused by some small detail you don't remember hearing about, that's probably the reason.
"I feel like this story perfectly represents how you can't judge a book by its cover (or, in this case, concept). Edgy badboy werewolf teen romance? Yeet that concept out the window and get ready for an action-packed fantasy with an incredibly built world and logical, realistic characters."
"This is a great story, probably better than any werewolf novel I've read. It's certainly not a typical werewolf story (but don't let that stop you from reading it, the werewolves are still amazing.)"
"A werewolf story where people aren't constantly meeting gruesome ends that still maintains a gritty atmosphere. Realistic worldbuilding and character design make this a must read!"
- RR reviews
It's easy to get killed while hunting werewolves, and that isn’t even the worst that can happen. Huntsmen don't talk about it, but that doesn't change the fact that every full moon some men set out to kill the monsters, and instead come back monsters themselves.
Greg, who wants nothing more than to prove that he's got what it takes to hunt with his father and brothers, finds this out the hard way. What does a young man do, when he suddenly becomes the very monster his family hunts?
What does his family do?
And: is this really such a bad thing?
By the way, this story has gay and lesbian characters. If that's not your thing, please don't hate on it, just move on.
The first chapter is also on DeviantArt, more may follow.
After his death from an epidemic, Aeron finds himself transferred to another world.
A world unlike his own, a vast world filled with beasts, races, and mystery.
Humanity as a foreign race strives to survive in the world of Gaia, building cities to expand and defend, bringing humanity to a new era of strength.
Aeron now in a new world, with a new family, and a new profession as Tamer, must strive to become stronger.
Watch Aeron navigate this new world as he meets new people, new pets, and collects new skills.
But a dark shadow looms on the horizon, creeping slowly towards humanity.

Fed up with being reincarnated into worlds that are too easy for him, a man entertains a world of mystery with an 'Impossible' clear difficulty.
He gets more than he bargained for when he arrives in a world devoid of goddesses and plagued with curses. He quickly realizes that he's happened upon an inconvenient world where his only path to strength is to do the unthinkable, take on the power of curses in order to advance his level and clear the reincarnation!
Aether Online sounded like Alex's dream. Now, it's his nightmare.

Trapped in the Aether Lands, Alex must become an Aether Knight to survive. Struggling to survive in a world under siege, Alex must learn to fulfil his new role, hunting the deadly machine beasts known as Machina for parts.

As his new role as a monster hunter takes him further and further out into the Aether Lands, Alex will face the truth about Aether Online.
For every crime, there is a perpetrator; for every debt, there is a debtor; and for every action, there is a consequence.
A group of humans, in their pursuit of power, created a being made from the deepest darkness of humanity.
A true human Monster.
Power is within reach to those with the desire to grasp it. In a world with countless possibilities, each can forge their own path. Warriors, mages, shifters, angels, demons, and more clash in a never-ending cycle of war to fulfill their dreams and desires. Each path brings its own perils and trials, but great rewards await the lone traveler.
All dreams require power, all desires require power.
The Monster desires nothing but complete freedom. In this world, that may turn out to be the hardest dream to dream.

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, since nothing cool ever happens to poor Hilda... but who knows?
Twenty-Three million souls.
It takes twenty-three million souls to feed the horrors of the Great Beyond for a soul to cross over and land amongst the living. And even then, it would only be a husk of its true self after the whimsical gods of the void got their claws on it.
Still, after eons untold, its final crossing shall take place in blood-soaked lands, driving fear into the hearts of its inhabitants.
Alistair finds little wrong with himself, that's not considering he somehow was the last living being to have taken part in a battle to decide the fate of the Human world.
He remembers walking shoulder to shoulder with his brothers in arms, being showered in the viscera of his closest friends.
He also remembers being stabbed by a twelve foot monstrosity as it picked him up with its sharpened blade of a hand, relishing his stunned expression and the soon to be blossoming of pain as it brought him closer to its putrid mouth.
And yet, here he stood in a silent battlefield littered with bodies for acres of land.
What the hell was he supposed to do now?
And equally important, what the hell was he supposed to do with this orb of golden light?!
This is the story of Prometheus, a young man unlike any other.
His early years were spent sequestered away from society where he trained with his Guardian.
His journey begins when he leaves the only home he ever knew, meeting many friends, allies, and companions along the way. The Tutorial, his first obstacle, must be completed before he can truly experience the vast world.
He must survive in the vast universe where monsters can disguise themselves as your friends and family, where your own may betray you for any amount of power or wealth, and where great beasts slumber beneath the very lands.
His story is one of struggle.
His is not the story of a soldier, but of one who is completely devoted to the Arcane.
He is a Quad-Mage.
He is The Glass Cannon.

The northernmost continent of the world known by many names of legend, but is most commonly reffered to as Athora, has, for eons, served as the land of exiles.
Human criminals, dark elves, grayskinned orcs and dwarves that preffer mining with machinery over the traditional pickaxe alike, have come to call this half-frozen hellhole their home.
It is a land of great strife, calamity and crisis, where one legendary tale ends only to begin the next, heroes fall down and villains find themselves thrown into lava.
Around seventy years ago, a legendary figure appeared out of seemingly nowhere and conquered three human nations, forming a kingdom worthy enough of being called a small empire.
However, at the eve of his heirs ascension, the legend breathed his last, leaving this same bloated, chaotic realm without the pillar that kept it together.
Already, the carrion nobility, still spiteful for being denied their "rightful" place below the sun, rise up and gather at the court, each eager to consolidate their own power in these troubled times.
Tempers flare, power is exercised without restraint and no one expects the hedonistic prince to succeed at keeping the realm together.
Alas, as is often the case with such tales, not everything seems to be as it might at first appear and the vain lords of the realm may yet come to regret their carrion will.

The holy knight Carmen never questioned his beliefs, even while he lay dying at the hands of a vampire. But death would not be the end for him. When Carmen next woke up, he found himself "alive" once again in the body of an animated corpse—a zombie—that was forced to slave away in the mines of a human kingdom.
As a proud, former knight, Carmen could not allow this wretched practice to continue. He must find a way to escape, try to regain his body and status, and uncover the truth. But there was something strange about this body...it was that of a little girl.

When he finds a magical mirror that takes him to an apocalyptic and futuristic world, he finds a surviving culture that values resources over human life.

New Synopsis after chapter 56: Long long ago, there was a mortal who despised the gods and envied the immortals. Why do the mortals have to die when the gods wish them to? Why do worlds have to perish when the gods say so? Why do only immortals get to live forever, why not mortals like him? As his family, friends, and his loved one died, he lamented. He wailed, he cried. He cursed the immortals, blasphemed the gods, spat at the heavens. But he was just a mere mortal. His curses were pointless, his blasphemous words were useless, and his spits only returned back to fall on his face. At last, he thought, enough was enough, he would definitely do something about it. He decided that it was time for the multiverse to know what a mortal can do. He was the first mortal to cultivate. Eventually, after a long struggle, he killed the Immortals, enslaved the Gods, and shattered the heavens. He reshaped the multiverse and rewrote his fate. In the end, he reincarnated as he decided upon a grand scheme, a scheme to rule 'All and Always'. He came up with the concept of what is known today as 'Paragon'. And with this, all of reality, 'All and Always', was finally reforming, according to a Mortal's Wish.
Synopsis (Old): In the vast and complex multiverse, what can a mortal accomplish?
In the grand scheme of things, what can a mortal change?
In truth, what is a mortal, and what is mortality?
Being mortal is being ordinary, the same as being trash, or so says The World.
"No, mortality is an art, and a true mortal is a grand artist. Being the root of all, a mortal can become anything.", says a young mortal boy.
Meet Edward Alexander, a mortal boy walking the path against gods and immortals, fighting to the end to rewrite his destiny, and change the grand scheme of things.
Can he really change the grand scheme of things? Or maybe he himself is the Grand Schemer? To know the answer, follow Edward Alexnder on his journey to demonstrate the Art of Mortality.*******
"Magic, some see it as an overused element in fictional works, others as a at least currently incomprehensible technology. Yet the very real truth is completely different. Magic is a phenomenon able to disregard the laws of thermodynamic and created by the soul through will and a mostly omnipresent, all-permeating light-like substance i shall call mana."
- Sarah Goldschmidt, A Comprehensive Introduction to Magic in the Modern World 1, 1st Edition, opening text
Yet at the time the book was published, the author was already gone.
Striving for a greater understanding of the world and magic, Sarah decided to ditch her old mana depleted world, a world which by itself seemed to oppose Sarah’s research into it's magical mysteries.
Hijacking a summoning, her journey together with her twin sister began. A journey through the Realms of Eas, a world of swords and magic.
What about her family? Not that they ever had a lot of presence in their life, though the two girls didn't dislike that fact.
Social connections? Sarah would prefer not to have those in the first place.
Modern technology? As if she couldn't replicate the most important items herself, if they didn’t exist.
Morals and modern values? The two discarded those a long time ago to survive, but also to advance.

An army of skeletons was summoned by the necromancer during his battle.However in the end of the battle none survived except a Skeleton . Follow our protagonist as he struggles to survive in a foreign, RPG-like setting surrounded by danger and monsters.
This is my first time writing so I apologize for the grammar and spelling in advance. I'm open to criticism so please mention it in the comments and help me improve.Also this was inspired by the novel "Overlord,Lv1 Skeleton,Skeleton Soldier Couldn'T Protect The Dungeon"
This is a work of fiction. Unless otherwise indicated, all the names, characters, businesses, places, events and incidents in this book are either the product of the author’s imagination or used in a fictitious manner. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, or actual events is purely coincidental.
Idea Seven, or Inter Dimensional Explorer Automaton Unit-7, has had a bit of an accident. Hijacking the egg of a dragon rather than its intended target of a bird egg, it isn't fully in control of its host brain. Rather the two, dragon and cybernetic AI interface, must work together to survive in a hostile world of magic, dungeons, beasts and adventurers. The AI must deal with being a machine from a world of science trying to carry out its mission of exploration, while the dragon, Rex, must deal with being a cyborg living with symbiotic nanotech that sets him apart from other dragons. What adventures await them?
Author Note: I tagged this story GameLit because it contains concepts like levels, classes, and dungeon/beast cores. But, it isn't tagged LitRPG because no one has status screens, other than occasionally Idea Seven who likes to organize data into blue boxes. It isn't a natural function of the world to display level ups or skill ups with an announcer voice. I mention this to set expectations, because otherwise I feel like LitRPG fans might be disappointed by my lack of LitRPG elements while others might be turned off thinking I have a lot of LitRPG elements. I think that if you approach the story with an open mind you will appreciate the gradual way in which the main character learns and expands his understanding of how the world works, but the game mechanics aren't meant to take center stage to the actual story.
In a world where the system reigns supreme and death is (usually) a mere setback, Allen has spent his time surviving, gaining power, and dying over and over again. He has become strong in that world, but when a divine being offers a way out, he takes it without a thought. Allen must then fight for his freedom, but it’s not so bad if you have unlimited lives… until you don’t. Needless to say, it’s all fun and games until there’s no more respawns.
This story is meant primarily as a dark comedy, it may not be readily aparent in the begining, but that's what I have planned. If for some cursed reason you just can't handle either the refrences or the jokes, just leave, please. Anyway, I still put a considrable amount of effort into the system, so I hope you enjoy that part. I'm having a lot of fun doing math in the middle of writing a fictional story (/s). I also want to see if I can keep from messing up the pacing. Many times I end up going too fast because I'm afraid of the story getting boring, which tends to ironically have to oposite effect. I'm still learning I suppose; we'll see how things go. Lastly, please leave reviews and comments, they really mean a lot to me and (usually) help me improve considreably. Even if its just a good ol' RRL style hate review, please leave it down below!

Ian now hates his job, and wants to be fired to get severance pay. However, things don’t go as planned when he downloads MERTICORE, a mysterious program that popped out of nowhere.
After that, the life of Ian has changed drastically. Gone are the days of drinking bad coffee while staring at a screen.
His days are now filled with magic, fighting weird creatures and even weirder people. Let’s not even mention the comrades he collects along the way, which are more often than not worse than the (numerous) enemies he makes as he bumbles through alternate dimensions.
There’s also a disturbing number of laundromats for some reason.
Release Schedule: One or two long(2.5k+ words) chapters per week, maybe more depending on real life.
Eos is a Remnant driven by revenge and will do whatever it takes to get it. That is if the Accursed Horde or her Blight doesn’t kill her first...
Story will contain Horror & Tragedy elements due to the dark nature of the setting. I could only pick 4 major tags.
Darkos, holy priest of Alerion, the God of Peace and Healing, has just arrived at the castle of the Evil, Dark Sorceress, backed by his trusty, if clumsy, companion, Geela. They fling open the doors to find the place dusty and decrepit.
"Oh dear, this place is showing its age," Geela sighs.
And with those words, everything Darkos knew about his friend is turned on its head. Geela, far from a naive farm girl, is a 70-year-old Dark Mistress, hell-bent on exacting revenge on her ex-husband Barney for cheating on her, trashing her place, and changing the locks.
Geela is everything Darkos has sworn to defeat. A bastion of dastardly deeds. A pinnacle of evil...
...so of course he finds himself tagging along.
James Jacob Smith has found himself in purgatory. After his death, his soul was deemed too pure to be cast into hell, but he committed too many sins to be allowed into heaven. In purgatory, your sins are given physical form, and you must overcome them to enter paradise. Failure means that your sins were too much, and you will be damned to eternal torment.
Failure is not an option for James. In the car accident that killed him, his wife died before he did. Since she's not here, she could only have passed right into heaven. Reuniting with her is his all-consuming goal. Nevermind that the physicaly manifestation of his sins is a giant monster the size of an office building. Tackling such a task is going to take some planning. But what other option does he have?
He's stuck in this place. And all he has to do is kill that colossus.
„Some people live lives with narrative weight. A story woven into the possibilities of everything they do or say. A princess in a golden cage. A baker swept away by circumstance. A father challenged, a mother desperate or a son lost. Twice – Born are those who lived a life of narrative weight and died a death worth telling. Just to do it all over again, for the gods enjoy a good story as much as everyone else. And they want more. Always more.“ - Dio, the Mad King
Rather than being thrown to his death by the hands of the demons of the Wyld, eternal foes of his empire, a young man takes his last free choice. The choice to die defiant of the wishes of his enemies, to die on his own accord and to jump.
His last desperate act of freedom catches the eye of the gods and so he is reborn as a Twice-Born of the Wanderer, his patron a boundless spirit of freedom. A second life to survive the hell he had jumped down into. A second life to carve a new path to freedom from the depths and darkness. A path to freedom for the lost, forsaken and shackled. A second life for himself in a world he doesnt know anymore. For the Wyld has won and the old ways are gone.
He enters the dark tunnels with nothing but a faint hope and the powers of the Twice-Born: to manipulate the class system and tailor to his needs what he thought was destiny.
Light on the LitRPG elements. Book 2 will feature heavy kingdom building.
I am not a native speaker and try to learn and improve. Please correct me when I'm wrong!
Finished as the #3 Story in ScribbleHub's Adventum Contest!
A woman dies in a rather embarrassing way, and is reborn into a shapeless void, as a god.
Now, after accidentally renaming herself "Snooze", she has become a Level One God, and must learn everything she can about how to control her new abilities--including Creation Management!
A silly stitch of fate, Snooze begins to grow more powerful as she combines elements, creates a world, and has to combat the flighty whims of her rosy-glowing archangel named Meat.
This is a work of comedy (or an attempt at it, in any case.)

This is LitRPG-Lite. There are gaming elements, and abilities that can be leveled up, but the system isn't sophisticated.
100,000 years ago, a meteorite crashed into Earth, granting a 17-year-old caveman the power humans have craved for millenniums, immortality. Though originally a savage and cruel caveman, millenniums have let Acheron refine himself and surpass the epitome of Humanity, basically, a god on Earth. With his power, he mastered all forms of combat, every language, all the arts, and much more. He sometimes helped create empires, sometimes built empires, sometimes destroyed empires, at times, even his own. Today, mutants with superpowers walk among the public, it is kept a secret by the governments throughout the world, and events pertaining to them are covered up but doesn't stop Acheron from interfering with their plans.
2 months ago, his oldest adopted daughter passed away, she was 96 years old. Though he cherishes all the children in his family, she was without a doubt, one of his favorites.
"Her last wish was for me to have a normal life but what do children do in this era?" Acheron asks one of his adopted sisters. "They go to school, Lord Acheron," she says. "School? Right!... Will it be entertaining?" he asks, "It would at the very least be a new experience" she replies. "Make it happen!" he orders. " Yes! I will do it immediately, Lord Acheron" she says.
He, who was there when the first Homo Sapiens migrated out of Africa and existed way before the wheel was created, will let nothing interfere with his daughter's last wish and will slaughter anyone that stands in his way.
