This is a fun little swashbuckling Isekai story.
The MC isn't some martial arts savant or anything.
Instead, he uses his geek knowledge to get by as he adapts to his new reality.
Releases every Monday and Wednesday at 10:00 AM MT (9:00 AM PDT)
Some people have within them near limitless potential. People who can shift the tides of war and shape the world. People stopped only by being born in the wrong place, the wrong time, the wrong world.
And then there are people meant to live and die behind a desk.
Follow Jeremy Peters as he struggles to deal with eccentric adventurers, competing guilds, and demanding customers.
Anyone who thinks the quest ends when the dragon is slain has never had to file an insurance claim without email.
Speaking heresy on my deathbed led me to meet god. Maybe it was a curse, or a blessing, but he decided I would work it off--as one of many gods on another world of magic and sorcery. It wasn't something I intended or was prepared for, but I am willing to work to make the world a better place. Isn't that what a god SHOULD do? Part of the Demonsword Project universe (First Age).
Author's Note: I have a habit of getting disturbing at times, and light at other times. If you have triggers, you may want to take the warning labels seriously. Hoping to update twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday.
Also, I am a little crazy with pain and isolation and might stop writing, but I will give it an honest effort.
“Venture into your mind and into a new world, one where there is Magic. Magic that is nascent and unexplained, one where you can be the one to Discover it, by delving dark dungeons or examining magical Beasts, by studying ancient scrolls or by finding lost gods, your Imagination is the only limit.”
This is what Mike thought he was getting into when he lay down to play a new VR game, but fate had another thing in store for him, he was whisked away to a new world in another Dimension, with an AI fused to his body that refuses to let him treat this world as a game, all the while trying to make it as much like a game as it can. The only Objective he is given is to Discover Magic as he learns to survive and live in this new world, doing the best he can to not die, or even worse.
This is my story, it has been brewing in my mind in various forms for years. It will be rough, this is the first story I have written in a long time, so please help me make it as great as it can be!
It is a High Fantasy adventure/Isekai LitRpg, it will have action and adventure, levels and dungeons, Elves, Dwarves and Gods.
It is not a Virtual Reality story, though it will touch on some topics of artificial intelligence.
The core focus of the story is going to be the discovery and deep delve in the magic system and fantastical elements of the world. Mana is used so often in LitRPG's but how often is it explained what mana is, magic is used in fantasy, but how often do you understand what it feels like. Magical races like Elves, Dwarves etc. often exist in stories, but why do they exist? and what truly makes them different from Humans and from each other? What is a God and where did they come from?
These are the sort of topics that I want to really dive into in this series, all through the lens of a progression focused LitRPG.
Thanks for reading!
The world as we know it ends in the year 2000. Over the course of a week, billions die and the survivors are faced with a reality that no longer makes sense. Can they fight back against wizards, monsters, and robots in a world where none of the old rules seem to apply, and their only ally is a mysterious heads-up display that reads like a particularly uninterested narrator?
Well, that part of the story's mostly done.
Hunter, instead of being alive in the age of heroes and martyrs, bravely fighting for the future of his entire planet, is born in 2003. By the time he can walk and talk, humanity has already fought back the worst of its demons and settled into its new status quo. What's an easily bored kid supposed to do in the Midwest when there's all this magic and nothing to do with it?
Fate, the world's first true virtual MMO. Where realism and fantasy meet. And where fates are shaped and legends are born.
Hurricane is a famous game studio, but it has been years since they last released a new game. Amidst dwindling sales and news articles discussing its fate, Hurricane holds a press conference in the main auditorium at G3, the world's largest gaming convention for the first time in years. Here they announce that after almost a decade of silence, their new game is finally ready to be revealed.
Eric Kingsley is no hero, but he is a gamer, and a pretty good one at that. Jumping into the world of Fate, all he wants to do is level up as quickly as he can. However, Fate is no ordinary game, and neither are the stakes he's playing for...
Welcome to The Equilibrium Games!
Don’t panic; it won’t change anything and will waste your time. The time is what you don’t have. Your task is simple:
Such a simple message appeared before Eric’s eyes as he stepped onto the hot sand of some unknown beach. He couldn’t remember who he was, or where he was. The only fuzzy memory in his mind was an enormous vortex appearing over his home town and hundred of tentacles snatching people out of the streets. No, it couldn’t be right, could it?
Moments later, as a set of icons appeared in his vision, he realized one more thing. He was transported into a world governed by a video game’s rules.
Welcome to my new LitRPG story — just a few clarifications at the start.
If you expect everything in this universe to make sense, then this might not be for you.
If you expect a hero, rushing to rebuilding the society on the new planet, then this might not be for you.
If you expect ‘We’re all going to die, hero save us!’ storyline, well this might be for you (sometimes), but probably not.
If you expect a thrill of adventure into the unknown, then this might be for you.
If you expect a gradual rise in power, then this might be for you.
And finally, if you like a bit of number crunching, gearing up, looting and slicing monsters, then it is definitely for you!
So with this short introduction:
Let The Equilibrium Games commence!
I’m aiming at five releases per week (Mon-Fri) on a fixed hour (9 PM CEST).
The dawn of Emotion Based A.I.s is here, John is the fifth test subject to have an AI implemented in his brain, and so far the first one to survive.
Blinded by the dream of immortality, the researchers push the tests to inhumane standards. John is obligated to take part in sessions of torture designed to test the limits of the AI influence over the physical and mental health. What was supposed to be a new beginning in life turns into living hell.
An (un)lucky twist ends his life. John then reincarnates with his AI in a new world where a System influences the interaction between Magic and Matter. With seemingly limitless potential and a game-like system influencing the world, the hero sets on his journey.
--AUTHOR NOTE, PLEASE READ--
I will state here my promises to you, potential reader:
1. No harem! I don't trust myself to make a harem feel natural or healthy, I never met any person who has a personality that can adapt and live in a harem for reasons that are not monetary, so I can't draw inspiration from real life. Sorry!;
2. The enemies will not be bland and illogically mean. Some may feel like that at first, but I will take great care in fleshing them out, trust me. You may end up hating some, but you won't be able to deny that they had their reasons for what they did;
3. I am using a paid (and expensive) automated editor tool, and I take longer to write because I take my time in editing the stuff. I am aiming to improve and I will not shy away from constructive criticism, nor take offense for no reason;
4. Characters will die and will suffer, some will get over the tragedies and improve, others will not be as resilient.
5. This novel has a lot of ground to cover, it is neither a short story, a manual on crafting, or the script of some action scene. There will be both time skips and oversimplifications of some actions for the sake of moving the story forward. Time skips will be more prominent in the first 30 chapters. I will describe crafting processes and fights with more detail if they are essential for the chapter;
6. If I took my time describing something, it's because it is important. I hate novels that waste time describing useless stuff. If you skim over something, the chances are that something in the future will not make sense. I am an adept of "Chekhov's gun" principle;
7. I already have 31k words on my auxiliary documents, I have a plan for the story, and I will not be making changes even if someone ends up noticing some foreshadowing and figures out what will happen. The story comes first.
8. I have a wife, a job that demands 9h every day and courses related to my job (lawyer) three days of the week, it's unlikely that I will be able to do mass releases at all. I will have a healthy amount of chapters to be able to post at least 1 chapter every day continually. Don't worry.
9. I will read all the comments. I will listen to all you have to say and will try my best to accommodate demands as long as they do not hamper the path I prepared.
10. There is an arc that spans the entire novel. Each volume will be an arc in itself while progressing a little bit of the main arc. Every arc will have one or more main antagonists.
I think that's it! Thank you for reading it all. Have an awesome time reading my first novel!! <3
Dungeon crawl. Fight monsters. Loot. Drink. Repeat. This was the life cycle of a low-tier adventurer. Many pitied them. Cooper envied them.
Cooper begins his journey as a meek keg runner in his local tavern. Out of desperation, he takes a chance opportunity with an adventuring party for a one time deal. Carry their loot, earn some coin.
But, fate intervenes and Cooper discovers that he can use his cunning, wit and carrying capacity to trick adventurers out of their loot, eventually turning him into a powerful player in the seething underbelly of the city of Hiberia.
Chapters released every Thursday.
There once was a man without a name. Despite his circumstances, his kindness and righteousness knew no bounds, rightfully earning him the title of 'The Mentor' from his peers. He was one of many slaves that allowed the majority to live comfortably at the cost of their well being. Yet, the man known as Mentor had never resented the Gods or destiny for his circumstances.
Until even his own beliefs began to crumble under this cruel reality.
An escape attempt had ended in failure, resulting in a vicious punishment that led to the man's demise.
He was finally able to welcome the sweet release of death but fate had other plans for him. Reincarnated into a different world, he was filled with new hope for the future. He'd assumed this to be his just reward and chance at a good life. Alas, he didn't know how whimsical fate could be. Realizing how his new future shaped out to be, caused endless despair to fill him.
Faced with the injustice of his two lives, the man known as Mentor, who was reborn as the human Michael, fell from grace. The accumulated hatred within him was finally released upon the world and none will be spared in the wake of his flames of vengeance.
Thus, if you dare follow Aien on his road of destruction, leave behind your morals and witness the birth of a Demon.
It's the end of the world. Follow Phil as he attempts to hack his way into the Haven program and flee to safety.
Enjoy this mashup of sci-fi/fantasy filled with a fast-paced well built out world! Can you work out the answer to the questions that haven't been asked?
By Timothy M. McGowen
Once upon a time, there lived an ordinary man. He lived among us, maybe some of you even knew him. And then he died.
Explosive rounds shot to the chest aren't very good for your health. His body was buried, his brain preserved. Three centuries have passed.
Our descendants discovered the old refrigerator with the brains of their ancestors, took our hero out of the ice, digitizing his persona, and implanting him into a videogame.
Little did they know that they fulfilled the terms of a contract to their demise. Because Fillin doesn't intend to spend an eternity in this digital playground even if though there's no difference from the real world.
But the only way he can return to reality is to become God in the game. And so our hero sets foot on the Path of the Gods, ignoring the facts that he is followed by a walking nightmare named FreakHead, that the skies mock his every step and that anyone who looks upon him sees the title "Bringer of Chaos."
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 and 2, it intended as a series of Novellas and a light read. Thanks for checking it out!

Helia, a world where ordinary people can acquire the strength of gods, scholars learn secrets of ancient civilizations and use magic to unlock possibilities one could only dream of, and heroes defend nations from whatever dangerous foes emerge, engraving their names into the annals of history.
Rather, that must be what it's like for others. For Liri, it's a living hell.
"You are worthless." The first words she remembers hearing. A homeless orphan who had seen more tragedy in fourteen years than others had in their entire lives, the young girl dreamed of the day her eyes shut closed permanently. One day however, while she rotted in those dirty streets, Ora was attacked.
Now, forced out into the dead wilderness with nothing to fight for but her own life, her suffering turns into a struggle for meaning and survival.
The village of Roads End, lying on the outskirts of man’s territory near the Deep Forest, knew nothing about the rising tensions among the nearby countries. They lived in peace, receiving the occasional trader while being largely avoided by the strange beasts that roamed the wood. Though most didn’t believe in the forgotten god whose shrine resided just within the forest, they appreciated the quiet village and the cures and tonics the local temple provided.
Maria, a young priestess serving the nameless god, lived happily with her Grandmother in the small temple. Even she wasn’t sure about truth behind the small shrine within the mysterious grove. But when tragedy comes to her home, Maria will be forced to rely on…
The God in the Grove…
New chapter every Sunday afternoon and Wednesday evening
Heather was a normal girl living in an abnormal world. When the visitors came, they struggled to understand humans and their ways. It was through video games they began to learn, and then they came up with a plan. They created a virtual world of magic and dragons where people could translate and become parts of the game. Through this world, they watched and learned, growing in their understanding of us.
She knew little about it, only what came across the occasional tweet or blog post. She knew that people went into the world known as New Eden because they volunteered. She also knew that rarely other people were forcefully drawn in; these were referred to as the chosen.
Heather didn’t pay much attention to it all. For most of the world, things went on like they always had. She had classes to attend and boys to tease, and her cell phone was her world. That was until she woke in a forest clearing and realized she had been chosen.
Magnus Tempest was a young man back on Earth, filled with hopes and dreams. That is until everything that tied him to Earth was taken and destroyed.
One night tormented with grief and contemplating dark thoughts. He stumbled upon a mysterious black gem-like shard, that whisked him away to another world called, Pandora.
A world part of the vast stage of the Known Cosmos.
1~2 chapter (3,000+ words a chapter) a week. On Saturday, and maybe Sunday if I have time.
Please be advised this is a slow burn, so if you do not like novels that go at a leisurely pace, then do not complain later. I have stated it right here and right now.
Also, constructive criticism and feedback are always welcomed!
Line Of Communication:
Having survived the destruction of his own earth, Kim Hooper now resides on an earth similar to his old one. But there is one large difference. This world is filled with so-called heroes that fight against the monsters that brought ruin onto his own world and which stem from the countless dungeons and towers that litter this world.
Stuck in a similar-but-different world, he enters one of that world's most famous 'hero academies' so that he can fight against the creatures that killed his friends and family and ravaged his world. Armed only with the mysterious system-like power that saved him from his old world, he sets out to stop this earth from falling into the same fate that his old one did.
Heavily inspired by 'The Novel's Extra' at first.
It seems I've reincarnated into a fantasy world as a cat. What now?
This is my first publically published story, and I would love feedback in any form as I have no idea how well the quality of my writing holds up.
This story will have light litRPG elements, though I won't dig into numbers much, since I don't enjoy fiddling with them.
The tone will be generally light, and I willl probably try to throw some comedy in there as well. The beginning will be Slice of Life, and unless I come up with a longer plot that I like it will stay that way.
Humanity has discovered the jump drive and is beginning to explore the stars. Captain Slater of the USS Franklin is assigned to protect a research expedition as it travels the unknown regions of space, searching for habitable planets and exploitable resources.
The expedition makes an important discovery...they discover that we’re not alone in the universe and our neighbors are hostile. The expedition is destroyed and Slater wakes from the destruction to find that he has changed. He is something new, he is no longer human, he is a Dungeon Core, he is a Derelict. Slater must learn to fit into his new existence quickly as other forces seek his destruction for the second and final time.
When a Dungeon Core acquires a taste for beautiful jewels, it sets out to become a criminal kingpin, operating from the sewers beneath the city. Updates daily / 3x on weekends.
Albus Dumbledore was sure he had made the right choice sacrificing an innocent child. Too late he understood how terrible that mistake had been... Harry Potter was not what he wanted him to be, he was not what the magical world expected him to be. He was not a replica of James, instead, he had inherited more of Lily. Far too much, in many people's opinion...
An ex-salaryman had made deal with a mysterious entity, and now he was in the other world. He was told that he wouldn’t get any special powers but he wasn’t worried. A little science and his rough upbringing should be enough for him to survive whatever thrown at him. The man didn’t want any glorious adventure or anything to do with great romances. He just wanted to have some fun, as long as it lasted.
- The English might not be perfect, but give the story a chance if below notes are agreeable.
- Aimed for adult audiences, but focused on plot rather than just getting laid.
- Fast-paced but the litrpg mechanics, plots, etc are revealed in stages.
- Characters will die as the plot sees fit.
*cover art source is not mine*
What would a normal person do if they found themselves trapped inside a magical barrier with monsters and floating blue screens ordering them to fight those very monsters? What if there was the incentive of becoming as strong as a superhero?
Elan was a kid living a regular life, studying hard, getting bullied sometimes—the usual—until a purple asteroid fell on Earth and turned everything upside down, forcing upon him that exact question.
With only a healing skill at his disposal, Elan will have to find a way of overcoming the trials brought by the asteroid and survive in what became of the world. A place where countries have crumbled to pieces and evolved individuals with superhuman powers claim those pieces as their own personal kingdoms.
And if that was not enough, unearthly powers loom over the world, vying for its control while humans, unaware of their growing influence in society, bicker and kill each other.
Quick disclaimer as usual. I'm not a native English speaker, so it'll be really appreciated if you can point out any mistakes you find.
This will be a slow-paced story where mc does not equal god's chosen child. I like an op MC as much as the next guy, but only when it makes sense. That is what I'm trying to create here.
Thanks for reading!
Odracir Hilers finds himself as a dungeon core after a 'failed' experiment to make a golem that thinks for itself, he must now progress and level up to protect himself against all the would be adventurers looking to plunder his depths.
A story about a man who was never able to live life to the fullest, troubled by his useless pride and uncompromising principles. But he never regretted it, he refuses to ever be assimilated, to change for society, to be molded by a culture created predecessors he never knew.
When the man was supposed to of died, a higher being gave him another opportunity at life in another world. A chance to be able to live again and live life to the fullest, unrestricted by the morals and ethics of his previous world. How will this man live his new life?
This is an isekai story like many others that have been told before.
TLDR: Cliche Isekai story
This is the first story I ever made/wrote, I decided to try it out in the spur of the moment.
I'm hoping to have fun with this, don't expect anything of quality in my writing. This story will be more of a wish-fulfillment so do not expect any intricate storyline and plot twist as I'm basically just chilling and writing w/e I'm in the mood to.

The world has ended, and those worthy of it have received the chance for a new life in a new reality.
Zach grew in power and thrived in the post-Framework world. He became a respected leader, a shining example of what it meant to be good. But as the world ended, he had only one thought: to punish the monster that had killed the world long before the Framework ended it. Yet not even with his incredible power was he able to stand against the World Ender. His arrival in the new realty, the Infinite Realm, gives him the chance to grow stronger, to find the monster again—and make it pay.
Ryun survived the chaos after the arrival of the Framework by pushing harder than anyone else. He grew in power until he became the most powerful being that had ever walked the planet; but he is hated by the world, called a monster by all others, the World Ender. As the world ends and he steps into a new one, where people stronger than him have lived for centuries, he finds himself lost and without purpose. The only thing that had mattered to him had been lost to him long ago. He truly was the monster that people considered him to be, and he now finds himself wondering if this new reality has a place for someone like him—but he had never been one for lying down and dying without a fight. One world fell to his power, and another might follow.
Framework is a story that will follow two main characters. The story will be told in two different time periods: Act 2 takes place in the present and follows Ryun and Zach in the Infinite Realm. Act 1 takes place in the past on Earth, and follows the two as they struggle to survive and grow their powers in the world changed by the Framework.
This story is a mix of LitRPG/GameLit and Wuxia/Xianxia, and it will have Classes as well as Cultivation systems. There are two main characters, and another two will be added later.
The Dahlia Kingdom has had a habit of summoning champions and heroes to fight in wars that could not be won with natives alone; this caused an era of prosperity for the human kingdom. However, for the first time in a long time, the Dahlia Kingdom has finally summoned another champion to fight against the Draconians and Majin, but what if this particular champion was no hero?

My first story here so let's do it! hopefully with flying colors. (This story is not about an insect that goes on an edgelord, death rampage, so those who came for that, know now what you are reading and stop rating down thx, still, some murder and mayhem is involved)
feel free to critique, I will be checking on reviews and comments every now and then to see what others think of my writing and how I might adjust it in the future. (although I'm also doing this for fun so don't get your knickers in a twist if things don't change to your liking)
(know that even if you comment/review that doesn't mean I will respond or that I will take your advice, after all, I too have my own preferences).
Also, this story will update once every week (Australian-victorian time)
Ps. A friend of mine drew the cover art, appreciate its homebrew goodness.
pps. serious readers may want to read the authors notes as well.
ppps. If you rate down please say why, I want info, not merely ratings that don't tell me anything, preferably in comments, so I can try to best satisfy my audience, or at the very least understand their reasons.
When violent freak storms scourge across the Earth, a giant rift transport millions of people into another world. They found themselves in Hammer Forge, a vast, untamed land filled with formidable sorceries and monsters, endless wars, and cutthroat intrigue. Trapped and broken, the surviving humans shockingly discover that none of the women were transported through the rift, forcing the men to drown on their grim purpose and their barren future.
But everything isn't what it seems.

In the lands of magic and intrigue, the truth of their circumstance is malevolently more sinister than they can ever imagine.
Update Schedule: I try to post 3x a week, with at least 10,000 words total for that given week. Update days vary, but I will post them once the chapters are ready (Most likely in an MWF schedule PDT).

Georgian Era Steampunk alternate history meets Tower Ascension litRPG!
For nearly twenty years since they've opened, the Gilded Gates of the Infinite Labyrinth have brought power and wonders to the subjects of King George III. Fueled by the resources from the place beyond the Gates, the modern age is in full swing across the British Empire. Crystal marvels adorn the streets of London while Aether-powered Skyships patrol the skies.
But the Hordes of Napoleon are not standing still. They will not stop until they can achieve total dominance and destroying the British advantage is their first objective.
Leatherworker apprentice Jonas Sims never planned to be a Professional. But circumstances have thrown him into the Labyrinth. Now, he's an Arcanist, something he was not prepared for.
He and the rest of his team have to level, push themselves forward and grow beyond their origins. They have to join with all the good men and women in the Labyrinth and break the stalemate.
Or the sun may finally set upon the Empire!
The Infinite Labyrinth is a litRPG that explores different takes of some themes from my main series, Silvergates. It's a hard, crunchy litrpg. Expect blue boxes everywhere, and the system itself is very mathy and ripe for optimization (i need a spreadheet to give me the details).
It's a serial. I have prepared a good worldbuilding, with enough details and background for lots of different potential story arcs, and I'm going to write as I feel rather than following a Great Plan.
Publication is going to be irregular, as the series is intended as a stretching exercise for when I'm stuck writing book 2 and next of Silvergates. I'll try to have at least one chapter a week.
The Gore tag was added because there's a scene with some gore that will be coming in the future in an Interlude.
Humans on Earth finally achieved a breakthrough and created a real technological intelligence, called the Singularity. With its advanced intellect, the Singularity realized that humans had become too dependent on external power instead of continuing their evolutionary processes to become higher-order beings. To correct this issue, the Singularity took away most of the world’s technology and gave all life on Earth a way to advance itself. Every aspect of life was turned into a system by the Singularity as a method to speed up and manage humans’ progression and development.
Nate’s advancement system awoke on his sixteenth birthday just like every other human on Earth. However, his miserable starting point caused him to go on a journey that would bring him many dangers. Read along to follow the young man’s path to explore the world, fight ferocious beasts and advance using the Singularity’s System.
Elizabeth "Liz" Curley is not a complicated woman. She's 35, lives in a modest apartment, and enjoys hot chai tea and romance novels. She's not hero material - maybe that's why she's been summoned by a Big Bad!

It had only taken a single day for Adam's entire life to fall apart, and from that single day things continued to spiral out of control. When he is summoned to a parallel world and offered a new life he eagerly accepted it, not willing to let the opportunity pass him by.
The world he agrees to live in has its own issue, however; generations ago, a curse was unleashed on the world. A curse that makes it so that only one out of twenty male children live past the first year. To combat the lack of surviving males groups of women would come together and share a husband. The shortage of males also shifted the power dynamic between the genders, causing men to be protected, coddled, and ultimately grow soft.
Neither party is properly prepared for the other, but they will both need to learn to rely on each other's strengths if they are to survive the coming storm.
This is a Harem novel, so it is more like my classic novels and is like a mixture of A brother's price and Risou no Himo Seikatsu. You can like always expect an Mc who is not a pussy or oblivious to the advances of the harem, Also sex, lots of sex...
No longer a dragon.
Stolen. That is the only way to start this tale.
His life and fabulous wealth had been stolen! A proud dragon, feared and respected by all, torn from his beautiful body and stuffed into the meat of a... what the crap is a Tiefling? That will have to wait. Between the murderous furred creatures with fancy hats, the deadly domicile mimics, and the cows that are more carnivore than herbivore; there is only time to eat, run, and grow stronger.
Do you like dark humor about theft, revenge, and violence?
Do you consider the safety of your main character secondary to continuous comedic pitfalls and bouts of poor luck?
Maybe you just want to see if the clothes eat him?
Talia Redowl, daughter of the goddess Athena, expected - and definitely wanted - to work for her mother when she graduated. In particular, she was hoping to be assigned as an aide to her older sister, Danae, their mother’s Avatar.
So when Talia’s graduation assignment is to become the Avatar of Hades, the legendarily anti-social and brooding god of the Underworld, she protests…the position has gone unfilled for two thousand years. Why her? Why now? The Fates weave a tangled web, and more is at stake than Talia’s plans for her own future.
But before she can take up her new post, Talia Redowl must die.
Death is just the beginning…
Maximilian was incredibly happy with his life, he worked at his dream job, had enough money for everything he wanted, an octopus pet that he loved dearly and a loving fiance.

While he was despairing, they laughed loudly and even killed him after they had their fun. In death, his immense hatred for everything only grew stronger and stronger until a mad god found him in the infinite void. Did the god feel pity? Or did he simply rescue this soul because he was in a similar position once? One thing is sure though.. the god reincarnated him in a different world. Since that day, max wants nothing else than achieving his vengeance and he will stop at nothing to get it.
This is his mad story.

I got reincarnated and one thing lead to another, I decided to open up and protect the orphanage
After a long, exhausting day at work, where he faced the usual harassment from some of his coworkers, Luke just wanted to return some books to the library, head home, and rest. Instead, he died on the way and became reincarnated into the world of Midlaris, a world of myth and magic. There, he was found and raised by seven elders, who each taught him their craft as he grew up.
When he turned sixteen, he began to attend university in the nearby kingdom, beginning a tale of love and friendship, of creativity and growth, and of an ancient past that begins to return.
The first several chapters covers his childhood, for those coming to read about him at university.
Posting Schedule: Alternating between 2 days and 3 days (so two chapters in a 5-day period). Patrons can read up to 15 chapters early.
Ace Cross is not your typical NEET, although he has all the making of one and is recluse, he is still a very outdoor type of person. One day he is killed (by a truck no less even after dodging off the road) his soul was going to white light in the sky (the sun) but before he could arrive a magical circle appears and he is pulled in and given a second chance at life in a magical world under the most cliche trope of anime, as a summoned hero.
He isn't 'the' hero though, he got the most uncommon hero class and something that has been extinct in all the nations blocking the advance of the demon lord. That is the Dungeon Maker. As a very unusual class that makes not only death traps but proper dungeons with ecosystems, this is the life of humanities first dungeon maker in 1,000 years since the demon lord war began. This is not just a story of battling the demon lord but also of how our heroes making a new life force themselves as all of them died in their original worlds.
