Waking up to discover the apocalypse had begun, and to find that I was no longer human, was not how I thought my day would go.
The city was a mess, with many buildings destroyed by massive black towers that rose into the sky like enormous thorns. And yet, despite all this, I was about to discover that the monsters and bizarre landscape weren’t the strangest things about the apocalypse.
At least, not if the visual hallucination that displayed game-like stats counted.

"Hi, my name is Alexis," I say into the camera, as I attempt to calm my nerves.
"And I'm Sab," I hear my best friend say from beside me.
"I'm trying to focus," I tell Sab as I look into the camera. Will anyone even watch this?
"What, just cause I didn't get sent to another world, where magic and dragons are real, I don't get to be a part of this?" she says. I can hear the hurt in her voice. I really wish she'd been there. Things might have been... different. I can't believe I thought it was a game.
"I said I was sorry. It's not like I knew I was going to be kidnapped by the system," I lamely apologize. She deserves more, but this is important.
"Coming soon, to an earth near you," she might be making light, but I can hear the fear in her voice.
"It's not funny Sab. It really is coming," I can't help but reply to her words, even though I know she didn't really mean it.
"Come on Lexi, it's a little funny." she says while chuckling nervously.
"Sigh. Look, can we just get back to telling them?" I ask, pointing at the laptop.
"Sure, but first you should show them some magic," Sab says while waving her arms around.
"I told you. It's not that simple. I only showed you because you could tell it wasn't fake. They'd just think it was special effects," or come after me to try to lock me in a basement.
"Yeah, well they're not going to believe you anyway. It sounds pretty crazy, even to me. And I've seen what you can do," she proclaims. I didn't think it was that special, but she was really impressed by my magical abilities.
"Maybe, but I have to try. We don't have much time left," I state as I stop the recording, before starting a new one.
"Hello, my name is Alexis," I say projecting as much confidence as I can at the little camera.
"Remember, the world ends on a Tuesday."
*This is a litrpg, with attempts at humour, a bit of psychology and a lot of magic. This is a "System apocalypse" novel where the protagonist is sent to another world prior to the apocalypse. It will almost exclusively follow the perspective of Alexis as she makes her way through her journeys.

What would you do if you found an ancient spaceship?
Michael Freeman is a disabled veteran who had just been fired from his mind-numbing cubicle job, which allowed his opportunistic girlfriend to dump him. Now, he only wants to spend some time in his grandfather's mountain cabin to unwind away from the drudgery of daily life with a cold beer in his hands.
Standing in his way is an ancient spaceship with an emotional AI, nanites that have invaded his body, an international crime syndicate, a suicidal FBI agent on a vigilante mission, Islamic terrorists... and this is just the beginning.
What can one man do when faced with insurmountable odds? Call it quits? Or… call some of his old army buddies and blow those obstacles to smithereens.
Can he become more than he had ever dreamed, reaching further than any man before? Staying under the radar of the powers that be while righting a few wrongs of the modern world.
He is sure of three things:
1. He really doesn’t want to follow the rules anymore... aside from his own.
2. Space is the ultimate frontier, and he had been given a turnkey technology to reach it—if they let him.
3. Those that want to hurt him and the people he cares about will rue the day they were born.
You do not always get what you wish for… sometimes, you get one hell of a lot more.

No truck-kun, no death, no clear transition: one moment I was standing in my apartment eating a microwave dinner over the sink and the next I was floating in an endless space filled with small pastel lights.
On the one hand: WTF?!
On the other hand: I doubt my student loans can follow me here...

It's the most-watched game show in the galaxy!
In a flash, every human-erected construction on Earth--from Buckingham Palace to the tiniest of sheds to all the trucks and cars--collapses in a heap, sinking into the ground.
The buildings and all the people inside, they've all been atomized and transformed into the dungeon: an 18-level labyrinth filled with traps, monsters, and loot. A dungeon so enormous, it circles the entire globe.
Only a few dare venture inside. But once you're in, you can't get out. And what's worse, each level has a time limit. You have but days to find a staircase to the next level down, or it's game over. In this game, it's not about your strength or your dexterity. It's about your views and your followers. It's about building an audience and killing those goblins with style.
You can't just survive here. You gotta survive big.
You gotta fight with vigor, with excitement. You gotta make them stand up and cheer. And if you do have that "it" factor, you may just find yourself with a following. That's the only way to truly survive in this game, with the help of the loot boxes dropped upon you by the generous benefactors watching from across the galaxy.
They call it Dungeon Crawler World. But for Carl, it's anything but a game.
This is a work in progress. Editing will be done after the book is complete, so there will be egregious typos and parts that make no sense whatsoever. Please, please feel free to point any and all of these things out. Chapters WILL get edited, and that editing might break earlier chapters. I will attempt to keep readers apprised of all changes. I will attempt to update this regularly.
Jason Park, a man with ambition. At a ripe age of twenty-nine, he took the risk to struck big at the cut-throat world of finance at Wall Street. Like any human in the whole world, money is everything. Yet for him, things didn't happen as he expected. Burn out and failing another one of his job interviews, he dragged his feet over the sidewalk of New York City. Yet something unexpected happened, a cry for help coming from the dark alley of the city. A city well-known for its two sides of light and dark. He hesitated at first but his morality swayed him. He came to help but what he found only opened a door that he wishes it wouldn't open.
He was the first and it wouldn't be the last.
From green dollar bills to blue game-like windows.
His reliance shifting to the latter.
An encounter that will bring forth a New World order.
A world hungry for blood, sweat, and tears.

He was no stranger to strife and the difficulties of life. Living life as an orphan while attending one of the world’s most affluent schools for the rich, tends to make his 17-year-old life pretty cumbersome. Still, the school gave him what he wanted- a higher education and if that meant he needed to be “the charity case”. Then so be it. Klaus Alexandros Roth, having just graduated top of his class, felt like everything was finally falling into place; He had exciting plans for the future and he was looking forward to this new chapter in his life, however, being abducted shortly after graduation and thrown into a world of cloak and dagger politics due to his bloodline was by no means part of the plan.
Join his adventure as he travels to different worlds, discovers his roots, and maybe makes a few friends along the way.

This is my first attempt at writing and showing it to others. If i make mistakes please show lenience sempai!
Forgive them, but dont forget to point them out.
You will notice large flashy warnings of sexual content and gore. Yes there will be those things, but no sexual abuse or any other overly nasty stuff.

Follow the journey of an individual given a classic cheat trope in a cultivation world. What does a man do when he finds himself unsure of who he really is yet is given a cheat? What really happens to a cultivation world when it is overrun by MC level characters? Is the cultivation world just run by cruel young masters, short sighted elders and uncaring experts?
Tags may be removed or added to this story as it progresses. For example, I added the harem tag because I wasn't sure if it would appear so be forewarn. Also, productive feedback is always appreciated even it may be ignored.
Note 2: Original idea inspired by "Arrogant Young Master Template A Variation 4". Wanted to do something similar but have a more gritty realistic feel. The system SHOULD differentiate as the story goes on but if it doesn't it means I need a rewrite. Either way, read AYMTV4, it's great.
The tear in reality led to a new world, one that promised fortune, prestige and a deeper understanding of the universe.
Those that entered found only death.
Four survivors are stranded in a strange and hostile world, at the mercy of forces they cannot understand. Their only path forward is to travel among the ashes of a broken and dying land searching for a way to survive, to endure - and to make their way back home.

His salvation comes in the form of a digital invitation...
Mild-mannered accountant Dylan McIver needs something more than takeout, spreadsheets, and the occasional PUG. Everyone around him is getting married and popping out kids, and neither of those sound like the adventure Dylan wants out of life.
His best friend, Nakala, has the answer. A beta invite to Monsoon Entertainment's latest MMO. But it isn't just an offer; it's a plea. Dylan will need to sacrifice five years of his real life to help her. The grind in the game is real, but Dylan is up for the challenge. There's monsters to kill, towns to build, mysteries to uncover, crafting to master, and fishing to enjoy.
He'll sleep eventually.

What would happen if you suddenly become a god?
My name is Johnny Rico, and I was born to an island that has rarely seen good times.
Between the machinations of Hydra, the greed of Cobra, and the do well intervention of the Justice League, or the Avengers. Val Verde has suffered.
I have obtained the coveted title of the Supreme Leader. All of Val Verde is mine to command. Yet I have also inherited every problem that the previous Supreme Leader had neglected.
It is as they say, there is no foundation quite like rock bottom.
Once I was the leader of the Arcanum, the greatest institution for the study of magic and knowledge, an institute that I ran for many many years until that honor was given to my son. Time is after all the great equalizer of men…
Bereft of the duties I had so faithfully fulfilled for near two hundred years I found myself pondering things which I shouldn’t. Questioning things I would have never thought. It was forbidden to dabble in the magics and relics left behind by the Altumerian people, for they had erased their entire race with such artifacts. This, however, is what I found myself doing, delving into ancient secrets and mysteries left behind by a long-gone empire. It all came to a head when I activated something I didn't fully understand…
Finding myself in a new world with a new lease on life I decided to dedicate myself to understanding more about the Altumerians. A people who apparently vanished from more than one world...
Author's note: this novel will have explicit sex scenes as well as some blood and gore, if you have read my previous books you should know what to expect. I plan on adding both elements but this is not an ero book that focuses on such things, they will be present but not take over the novel.
the release schedule is Mon-Fri.
“What is wrong with you!?”
That would be what anyone who knows me would say if they knew what I’ve done. They wouldn’t be wrong, as no sane person would ever quit his job the first chance he got when he saw an opening to follow his dream. To become rich and famous by playing video games. What? Did you think my dream wasn’t childish? The best dreams most often are. No? Well, maybe you just don’t dream big enough. Ever think about that?
Dreams are never easy to follow, and neither is mine. There are millions of players who want the same as I do, but very few would actually risk their future trying. Following the path of a Villain isn’t easy, and I have a city filled with thousands of players who would love to see me fail.
I will show them though. Just you wait and see...
Disclaimer: The MC in this story is intentionally flawed, trying to depict both the good and bad qualities of a regular person and how he grows and develops as a result of his actions. I would advise checking out the story's tags. The story contains a low to medium amount of profanity. Read at your own discretion.
Current chapter release schedule as of 5. February 2020: Monday, Wednesday, Friday.
This story could be about the Tellask Empire, ruler of a thousand suns and faced with imminent peril at the hands of the Orakh hordes. It could be about Paltai Amberell, the scion of a noble elven House, fallen upon hard times and seeking to find the key that will restore his family's name and save the Empire itself. It could be the story of his voidship, The Viceroy's Pride, powered by magic and crewed by a team of crack marines as they search for adventure and the solution to the Empire's myriad problems.
Instead, this is the story of Daniel Thrush, human electrical engineer, befuddled researcher and survivor of the debacle that was first contact with a spacefaring civilization. Due to a combination of luck, magic, hard work, and more luck he is thrust into the center of events as Earth is shoved onto a much larger stage rife with semi-immortal elves and magical kingdoms that predate the Earthly invention of agriculture.
Earth is outnumbered, and we have precisely one wizard. Dan. He's not very good at it, but he's going to have to learn in a hurry or watch everything he knows get torn apart by massive spacefaring empires straight from the pages of a fantasy novel.
Some readers have noted that the MC tends to be weak willed and pushed around a bit. A significant portion of the story is his character growth into not being a pushover (i.e. him being passive is in the early chapters on purpose). I'm just including this caveat/warning to make sure that readers aren't surprised/upset and that they stick with it until he learns to stand up for himself.
His arc begins to crystallize around chapters 25-27. If that's too long to wait, I get it, I'm just trying to do my due diligence and warn you that the character development is a bit of a slow burn.
This is NOT a harem novel. Nothing against them, just not what it is.

Raine just wanted some money. All he needed was enough to get his business rolling. But when he agreed to take a much-needed job from his college friend Levin, he hadn’t expected to get stabbed, shot, and chased at midnight in L.A. with a drunk girl in the back seat of his car. And he hadn’t planned on joining a strange organization based in another world, thanks to which he flies off to a private island to suffer weeks of grueling training and endure intensive foreign language study the likes of which he hasn’t experienced since high school.
His friends sold the other world to him as a land of hope and second chances, a simple but beautiful place where he could put his many failings behind him and get a new start. Ignorant, trusting, and naive, he believed them. But they lied.
Please note that the story has a slow start (practically all of my readers say this).
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.
*UPDATING ON WEEKDAYS*
In a world of epic struggles between superheroes and villains, not everyone is enthused with the spectacle. Walter Watson is an unassuming young man and a part of the Powerless majority. His only want in life is to escape the noise of celebrity Heroism which is, he believes, no more than a thinly veiled excuse for neverending martial law. He wants freedom, not Power, and he has no hope in saving a world that was doomed to conflict from the start.
Unfortunately for Walter, fate has different plans. His entire life will come crashing down as the Truth reveals itself. He is harboring not only the greatest... but most terrible ability in existence. The very key to Power itself.
He was born in a dark place, in a world where souls were traded like coins and a person's life wouldn't amount to much. A world where a single misspoken promise could rip you to shreds. On top of everything, his only soul was acting up and mocking him!
It couldn't get much worse in his opinion...
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)
After the world ended and reality broke, everyone had... different opinions about how it should all be put back together again.
Humanity's solution centered around trying to revive an entity known as the Overseer of All Things, an ancient machine god which was shattered into pieces during the apocalypse. In return for the human's devotion, it gifted them with the tools to fight the monsters which had come to dominate the broken fragments of the world - such as [Classes], [Skills], and most importantly, the ability to [Level Up].
Sláine E. Catháin honestly doesn't give a crap about any of that. A warrior rabbit-girl hailing from a different System, she's decided to come to the human's corner of reality because their methodology has lead to them becoming extremely powerful, and even if it's in the foreign land of Arpege, Sláine intends to die a legend. Naturally, she bites off a bit more than she can chew, and what started as a simple quest to beat up the biggest bad guys she can find is soon filled with drama, mysteries, friendship, love, occasional discussions of how best to hide a body and - ugh - stat optimization.
A dark comedy yuri LitRPG with an ultimately sweet and hopeful tone where the main couple are battle partners whose love language involves killing monsters for each other. Updates MWF!
Triquetra: A Multi-Class Isekai or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Accept the End of the Multiverse
Triquetra: An Multi-Class Isekei Adventure
I know, I know, you have heard it all before. Yes I was hit by a truck. Yes I ended up in a Fantastical World suspiciously similar to one of my favorite RPG’s. Yes I had access to cheats no one else possessed. Yes it was a world of classes and levels and magic powers. Finally, yes I was an overweight middle-aged loser failing to live up to my potential. Given my eclectic reading habits I should have been better prepared.
Unfortunately I was not. Sure I could multi-class with reduced penalties, but my starting class was Scholar! No combat abilities and very limited spellcasting. My HUD interface costs mana to use, and my universal translation seemed to be outsourced to Giggle Translate. I’m supposed to be an OP MC! Not a slice-o- life struggling to survive in the wilderness. Not to mention the Arch-Magus who summoned me, mistimed everything, I arrived 300 years too late, after the fall of the Empire I was supposed to save. The surviving remnants have devolved into Murder Hobos. What’s worse is that the Great Devourer, Ancient Calamity, and Spawn from the Void Beyond Time, Space, and Sanity is now aware of a new world to plunder, a world called Dirt! (Told you this translator sucks)
Warning Extra Crunchy Authorial Vebosity!
Lots of infodump in the early chapters, but I learn my lesson and it does get better, eventually.
I do not own the Cover image, found it on a free image site.
Seventeen-year-old Julius Alkas is a one-man powerhouse and among the most powerful magi in the thirty-six known galaxies. His friends call him the Immortal Archmage. His enemies...well, the ones who are left, bitterly curse his existence.
Tasked with finding the scattered Kor’Rel shards, Julius and his best friend, Koda, an Interstellar Fae cat, will travel to different worlds, causing trouble as they explore the vast cultural richness in the universe.
The story features an OP MC and minor use of blue screens. Read at your own peril.

To be summoned to another world, arriving in plane of existence filled with magic and potential! Already, you've been given the great privilege of becoming a [Hero] and the honored task of defeating the demon king! Some people might call that the opportunity of a lifetime!
With the chance to learn to become a master of the sword, to grow more powerful than anyone on Earth could ever dream, what's not to love about being a hero? It's just like the King said: this is destiny calling! This is what you were born to become!
It turns out, people summoned from another world are easily charmed with the title of "Hero."
And they really shouldn't be.

Monsters have invaded Earth. New powers and abilities have sprung up from the strange leveling system to help humanity combat the new threat.
Join Ray as he navigates through this changing world, starting from the beginning.
Colin is bored out of his skull and has been getting more and more restless of late, and his wife, McKenna, has noticed. To help, she decided to get him one of the most sought after devices on the planet, A headset for the Ineffable Gaming System and its revolutionary game Rosengard Worldwide. The most advanced virtual reality video game and the only one with a near-perfect total immersion system, McKenna hoped that the activity in the game could help him overcome his boredom for the foreseeable future.
On his first day in the game, he's betrayed for loot, killed, and even made to suffer.
Unknown to these players, Colin (DevilWalker in-game) was an Assassin for hire that takes loyalty and betrayal seriously. It was never just about business, and this was not just another aspect of the game for him. This game was a gift from his wife, and he wasn't just going to stop.
Now these players and anyone who harbors them are on his list. There will be no compromise, no remorse, and No Absolution to any who betrays Colin Drummond, The DevilWalker.

This story is a LitRPG Action/Adventure story that will feature levels, skills, abilities, monsters, douchebag players, exciting and cool equipment with so much more.
I have so much planned for this that it should be fun and entertaining for readers who enjoy the LitRPG genre as much as I do. Please join me as I recount the tale of a man who becomes a legend — both in-game and out of it.
I plan to attempt a weekly update schedule. Upload Sunday evening(for me).
Warning! This story will involve some amount of cussing to help add some realism and some insinuated sex that will fade to black the moment the fun begins. I am hoping to mostly keep this Rated PG-13 with maybe a few Chapters going rated-R due to language.

THIS is NOT deadalus. This is NOT THE MECH TOUCH. This is an independent work by myself. I've more then a few times explained that I've been expired by these incredible novels but they are very different. MC is not as smart as Deado. There is no System. The setting is similar - because, well, its a SCI-FI Mech novel. What am I to do about that? Some people judge at chapter one, five or ten. I would like those who decide to drop this novel and drop a 1 or 2 to read chapters 27 or 28 or 29. On a positive note; I really don't need to defend my work or myself. I'm very satisfied with the progress lately. Im happy with the continued support. Im happy to have become a Webnovel Contracted Author. I'm happy to have +/- 350 collections on WN. Im happy to be at +/- 80 followers here, with so many of you even favouriting.Thank you all for the support and for being awesome!

Happy 17th birthday!

This story is written as a LitRpg. It contains class systems, skill trees, and of course, lots of loot. (Don't be alarmed to not see any class systems in the first few chapters, they'll be there soon enough)
''He's broken, are you sure this is a good idea?''
''It's gonna be alright, it'll become a different timeline. I will supply the power for it myself, won't cost you anything and you can watch it play out with me.''
''If you're sure dear, the last time we did this it didn't turn out so good for the world though.''
''It's gonna be fine! ...Probably.''
A man yanked out of our world is put into another one on the whims of beings out of his comprehension or knowledge.
Journey with him as he tries for the things that were ever out of his reach in his last life, enjoyment, fulfillment, happiness... and maybe even love.
This is my first time writing anything. I'll be taking it as a learning experience, though obviously, I'd hope that people enjoy it.
When you find something to criticize, and you will. I at least hope you'll word it in a constructive way so I could remedy and/or learn from it.
The Otaku Zhen Shi died and reincarnated in another world. Cliche much? Yup!
Then he got a system! Cliche again? Yup!
But his best bro is Merlin with a plus one! Is that cliche though...?
This world has unexplained connections to the Gods and Deities of almost every mythology back on Earth. On the other hand, Zhen Shi isn't your ordinary otaku. He is also a bookworm easily entranced by the workings of the world. Also, did I mention he's a shameless bastard at the forefront of ridiculous situations? With an even more shameless grand mage?
With his beloved but mischievous system *cough* scapegoat *cough*, Zhen Shi embarks on a journey facing happiness and sorrow alike as he reaches the heavens!
Bad joke below...
Zhen Shi was out of ideas and thus said, "System state suggestions to beat up these maggots."
The user has not yet learned Unique Skill earned from Beginner Power Up Bag.
SHIET! *Cough* Nevermind System, I only asked to check if you had forgotten... There is no need to be ashamed, after all, even geniuses make mistakes sometimes!
This is my first novel. But I intend to finish it!
Release rate: 4-5 chapters/week (definitely or more)
Each new chapter will have 3000+ words.
The story will bring in some references from popular Chinese wuxia novels, games and anime. It will mainly include real-world mythology.

Something is brewing in the realm of Arcanium...
Rumours of a grand pirate fleet being gathered at Nokoroy are floating about, lead by a powerful man calling himself the Warbringer. When Samos gets pulled into this world of chaos, he begins a search for his past and an understanding of the powers within him.
Munch was supposed to be the warm-up boss.
He’s the smallest and weakest of seven brother Minotaurs, the legendary Minotaurs of Seven Groves. He is willing to do anything to help his family, even die.
When he makes a careless mistake, and the Knights Courageous ultimately capture his brothers, Munch struggles to come to terms with himself.
With twin curses that prevent him from leveling up his magical or physical abilities, Munch is virtually useless in battle.
Even so, he resolves to do everything within his power to bring his brothers back.
In Munch’s epic quest, he discovers a hidden strength within himself. Something not seen since ancient times. Something not even the Knights Courageous could have anticipated.
Note: This is a pre-drafted novel of which I am working through the second write-through. I intend to publish every Tuesday and Friday, November 2019 through April 2020.
Update: Beginning in January, I will be splitting my chapters up into shorter subchapters. The overall schedule will not change. I will continue to post two full chapters each week. Each chapter will end on a Tuesday or a Friday.
A class consisting of twenty-three individuals was suddenly transported to another world. There, in a medieval-like setting, they were told to help humanity through a war that has already begun between the larger frontier kingdoms.
Within those in the class, some have made the choice to help from the beginning but not all were given convenient abilities to fight with.
For our main character, a Loner who always lived separately from the rest, he was given a power that was contrary to his way of living and how it will change him through the course of his newfound journey.

Dungeon Core meets Xianxia. Reborn as a Nascent Soul with a System designed to help forge a Sect, our MC must gather students and teachers both to form a powerful Sect, one capable of protecting his bodiless spirit from other, older Nascent Souls that seek to consume him.
Inspired by novels such as Forge of Destiny, Cradle, and Arrogant Young Master Template 4. Make sure to give them some love, because they are my favorite Xianxia of all time, and deserve plenty of praise.
Lapis Lazuli Fardom, the current Demon Lord, is betrayed by her council when they establish a treaty with the Humans behind her back. Having framed many evil deeds against her, both the Humans and Demons set up an ambush to kill Lapis off.

On Warnings: This is a high-octane, high-adrenaline, high-oxytocin story about mind-boggling adventure, terrifying monsters, a badass protagonist and, at times, the jaw-dropping women who fight alongside him.
Is there swearing? Hell yes.
Is there violence? Those monsters won't kill themselves!
Does he meet (and sleep with) gorgeous fantasy babes? Of course he does!

The Great Collapse shattered the world, altering its terrain and destroying governments. At the same time, it brought magic to the world in a wave of chaos. Only the Gray Mage, who appeared just as suddenly as magic and disappeared just as fast, saved humanity from the destruction magic's arrival brought.
A century and a half later, the world is run by the Orders, the Guilds, and the Families, an uneasy peace between the three as the end of the Third Age of Magic draws near. Ryan Novar, heir of the most powerful Family, was born blind. During his Appraising, however, he learned that he possessed great magical potential, which would be wasted due to his blindness.
Determined to not waste his magical potential and to overcome his blindness through magic, Ryan set a goal for himself: become the second Gray Mage. While working towards this goal, Ryan discovers secrets about the Great Collapse, the Gray Mage, and the paradox that was his own birth.

They should have fought back. They felt his disdain, but no one wanted to believed - believe that they were never loved. That they can just appease him again. Sacrifice their lives again. Conquered their enemies again. Built wonders for his majesty again. And when they finally accepted the truth, it brought them to their knees as his machines burned down their wonders and reduced them back into animals.
But there was still hope. The Stellars told of our survival. Our downfall was just the beginning. Our regression into animals was merely a delay. At the time, our people were split into different tribes. Before the doors to the infinite sea are open. There will be a child born to stand against his machines, born to challenge his majesty. And with a sword in one hand and a scepter on the other, that child - that hero, will lead his kingdom. The kingdom of goblins.
Sun, the goblin child born to save all of goblin kind. A former human from an unknown world died and reborn with little memory of his past. Join him as he takes on the world, make new friends, uncover the secret of his past, and lead the goblin kind from the darkness.

Reincarnation of Strongest Sword God is a Chinese web novel with a huge following. It follows the adventure of Shi Feng - a middle level guild leader who is betrayed and goes back in time to just before the open of God's Domain, which becomes a second life to most people. He obviously uses this restart to change his life creating a guild, Zero Wing that defies the odds and rises to the top.
The web novel has great setting, lore, and incredibly complex mechanics. However, the author often lost track of outstanding quests and opportunites. The novel is currently on Hiatus after several years and 2694 chapters. The novel pauses right at a gigantic cliff hanger as the MC achieves Tier 4 in his class, first in the game. Enemies are everywhere in both Virtual and Real world.
This fanfic picks up immediately in chapter 2695, which is the end of the machine translated chapters. At the time this is written the english translations are about 430 chapters behind, but catching up quick.
Fair warning, in the FANFIC, MC goes full force and uses all of the tools that the original author provided but never fully exploited. I have been able to reverse engineer most of the stats and everything is based on the mechanics and rules established by Lucky Cat. The numbers get big. However, they are fully consistent with original web novel. PvP will be a curb-stomp until other players get to Tier 4 so after stablizing the current crisis most of the content will be PvE. This power discrepancy has been mentioned a multitude of times by the original author, so again it is entirely consistent with main work.
With those caveats in place, I hope you enjoy my take on what happens.
This is my first Fic so please be kind!
Also - RSSG discord has a subsector for this.
