A heroic epic of one man and his journey in a new world.
Michael finds himself in the realm of the Forever Kingdom, with no memory of how he got there. Uncertain of who he is, he must yet participate in the Grand Game and forge a new destiny for himself.
Dropped into a dungeon of monsters, and strange magics, would you survive in a Game where to lose means death?
To survive, Michael must prove himself. Starting with little more than his wits, he must advance as a player, slaying his foes and gaining experience, all the while improving his skills and abilities.
A world with endless opportunities for advancement and power.
Join Michael on his epic adventure as he deals with the Game’s challenges.
The start of an exciting new portal fantasy epic!
My name is Tim or was that is until I died, there was no light at the end of the tunnel, no white room to choose any cheats from, nor was there any meeting with God.
I didn’t die heroically saving someone, and I certainly didn’t get hit by a truck. My death was rather stupid and anticlimactic, I had apparently bumped my head while sleeping and passed away...
That should have been the end of the road for me but like many self-proclaimed main characters, I joined the army of multi-dimension travelers and was reincarnated.
Being an avid light novel and manga reader, I would have been excited at the opportunity, if not for my new siblings who tried to kill me as soon as I was born, or my mother who seemed to have something with throwing me off cliffs, and let’s not forget my murderous father who forced me to flatten a small country as my Rite of passage.
Oh did I mention I was reborn as a Dragon?

A puzzling encounter leaves Dimitry a beggar with a strange emblem on his wrist. Around him, the people suffer as ruthless organizations, opportunistic nobles, and an overly pious church vie for power in a medieval land under constant siege by stone monstrosities rampaging from the coasts.
Can a kindhearted surgeon aid this ailing world with modern knowledge, resourcefulness, and magic? Or will rival powers crush Dimitry first?
A fiction that starts brutally grim and eventually transitions into technology uplift with a focus on science, magitech, and town building.
Warning: Technical terms abound.

Be careful when demanding reparations from gods. They rarely own up to their mistakes.
Due to a goddess's shortsighted error, Perry finds himself transported to a distant Universe with new proportions and a different identity. Instead of cowering before the deity, he demands she opens a portal home or provides reparations for him and his bereaved family. Unfortunately, standing up for himself doesn't earn Perry respect. Instead, she curses him with cowardice, limiting his combat and magical potential.
Little does the goddess know that nothing can stand in the way of Perry's sheer will. If brute strength and arcane might won't get him the justice he desires, wit and creativity will.
Perry's first target? A goblin shaman. Then, the world.
And so begins, the bard's ballad.
Posting 5 times a week from Monday to Friday!
Bard's Ballad takes place in the same extended Universe as my other story, The Houndsman. It's set on a distant 'disk', though. As a result, the magic system is unique in comparison and has a harder LitRPG system. While the story utilises stats, it doesn't take them seriously and occasionally makes fun of regular LitRPG mechanics.
This story is co-authored by J Pal.
He originally wrote it as The Halfwit Halfling but got tired of number-heavy LitRPGs.
I've taken over the story-boarding and the tale uses names/locations from the old story but not the same plot progression.
I dropped the prison break theme and have given the book a proper villain (a goblin shaman). As a result, the story shouldn't be mistaken as a slice of life despite the protagonist's combat limitations.
Perry uses wit to overcome challenges instead of brawn or arcana.
A Dungeons and Dragons inspired adventure with a realism-focused spin on gamelit.
Hump grew up believing his master was nothing but an ordinary hedge wizard, but when the old man unexpectedly dies, his book of spells binds to Hump’s soul. Now without a master, Hump sets off to find his place in the world, to discover the secrets of magic, and to understand the Book of Infinite Pages.

This is a slower-paced "experiment and dungeon building" web novel that tries to use the idea of peer-to-peer communication with Dungeon Cores instead of Dungeon to
slave monster communication to break up the detailed dungeon building.
Rank 1 description: (minimum met for system initialization...detailed description as follows)
Each race was given a system by the gods to make up for their shortcomings and balance their place in this world.
Humans: Abysmally bad at understanding and using magic unable to use more than the lowest of magic were given the "Skill System" magic in the form of premade skills with use, study, and mastery tied to experience.
Elves: Intuitively understand magic and have long lives leading to vast knowledge and skill in their chosen fields. However, as a species, they have nearly zero sex drive and less than low fertility, so they were gifted the "World Tree System" with experience gained through the care of natural areas – gifting the chance of children to increase their numbers without dirty copulation.
All “natural” or “wild” monsters are given an "Evolution system" designed around killing and consuming as many creatures as possible, slowly increasing strength and, at thresholds, allowing mutations to alter them multiple times.
Dungeon cores are different. Unlike humans, they can see, manipulate and live off mana. Unlike Elves, they naturally crystallize after extended periods of time in high mana level areas. However, they cannot easily move or communicate and typically go insane without companionship. As a species other than the odd eccentric they are unimaginative. Brute forcing solutions without the drive to truly innovate. Thus they have been gifted with the "Dungeon Connection System" a magical version of the internet accessible by their peers that allows them to barter and sell: bait, traps, monsters, and knowledge, as well as entertain each other with “adventure streams” using exciting recorded battles and humorous reels of arrogant chumps biting off more than they can chew to often fatal effects.
This is the casual story of a dungeon unluckily spawned far from potential adventurers forced to innovate beyond its peers to find its place in this world.
Rank 2 Description: Justification.
I've been on a dungeon core kick for months and while I love the genre – it's sparse with entries.
Often the forced conflict gets repetitive and frantic solving of threats "power levels" the protagonist to god levels to progress the plot – taking away the nice steady progression fantasy I'm looking for. (Progression in this story is linked to how strong of monsters/traps/whatever he can create not his "level"...this is demonstrated by some of his newer monsters beating his older monsters not with discrete "this monster has 10 attack this one has 40")
Additionally, the focus on 3rd parties with their drama takes away from the reason I’m reading dungeon core novels in the first place – I'm looking for magical crafting, experimentation and kingdom building – not defence from higher and higher levelled enemies looking to steal/destroy/control the MC.
This novel is kind of just me writing the story I wish I could read. I like thinking about the experimentation that can be done in fantasy settings using 'mana' as an excuse to make up rules and try to keep them internally consistent. IE once I define how a rule works, I'm going to commit to keeping it – no breaking hard truths I've given when it's convenient, even if it backs me into a corner. Hopefully, that should make the story interesting to read even if it's SOL and less action-oriented.
There will be problems to solve and a clear progression in strength (of created monsters and knowledge) however due to not wanting to force conflict for the sake of conflict the general theme will be closer to slice of life with few action sequences and no overarching goal so please keep that in mind when picking this up as the genre is not for everyone.
Finally, I have a clear goal of what I want from this story (not an endless romp but a series of arcs and then a conclusion that's a couple of dozen medium-sized chapters long) I want to commit to finishing it or at least bringing it to a point of rest. I hate all the engaging stories that stop with a “hiatus” indefinitely so in the event I lose motivation I'll work to end this even if the ending becomes rushed/unsatisfying just to give a sense of closure.
I’m planning on including several polls in terms of direction and taking feedback heavily into account if I get enough readers (but may choose to ignore it if it deviates too far from the direction I want to take this as in feedback like: “The MC needs a cartoonishly evil arch-enemy that wants to enslave him and force the mc to pump out magic items” or “the MC needs to make a body and learn teleportation then live with humans” will get shot down without consideration.)
Vonn of Shieldpoint is an ambitious young inventor who, as far as his family knows, just survived a terrible accident. Really, he didn't. Instead a being known as the System has recruited the soul of a modern college student from our world, to fill in for him. Given a new life in a new body, the former human wants to make good use of it and fulfill the dreams of the one he's replacing.
He's an Engineer in a world where that's a character class with explicit levels and stats. This world is just discovering the power of steam and clockwork and the occasional magic dungeon crystal, so Vonn is just in time to become a famous genius.
He just needs to figure out what the gods actually want from him.

After an accident that nearly claimed his life, Arnel has become Humanity's first Mind-Machine Interface, the fusion of Artificial Intelligence and human consciousness. In the competitive, virtual fantasy world of Singularity, this gives him tremendous and unfair advantages. However, there is a small problem; The AI he shares his mind with is not a harmless helper program, but a vast, sentient intelligence created for war, and capable of not only predicting the future, but influencing it to a degree of certainty.
Coincidentally, possession of such an intelligence is equivalent to possessing nuclear armaments for which the punishment is death.
Vance is a young man who has been blind since birth. He lives with his father and older brother. Over the years, he sought remedies for his affliction, but had no luck.
This year, an Arcanist visits the small town of Wethermane. Vance is curious and intends to visit this powerful stranger, hoping for either help or hope.
What he receives is something else, something greater - opportunity.
This book will follow his tale from afflicted young man to budding Arcanist, his struggles along the way, and hopefully a little humour.
James had always had issues with people, that's what happens when you have severe social anxiety. And then she gets a notification about some "System Integration".
Fine. At least if she's going crazy it's just with code, she can deal with it. And it seems everyone is seeing things together. So maybe she's actually sane? But her social anxiety is enough to get her in trouble even here. She'll get through it. She'll just get stronger. Strong enough that she won't need to deal with anyone. Strong enough that she won't need to avoid people; they'll avoid her.

Summoned after an unfortunate accident in hopes they could protect the world from a coming threat, Ben and his classmates are gifted another chance at life. With fame and fortune promised to whoever is willing to fight for the sake of the world it doesn't seem like a bad deal, there's just one small problem. Ben wasn't blessed with any magic or combat skills, just crafting and enchanting. While the skills themselves aren't useless they also aren't seen as being necessary to the coming war. Now not needed and alone Ben tries to find a place in the world while meeting some of its colourful characters along the way.

Kari never wanted her powers. When she was surrounded and faced with the gnashing jaws of horrifying monsters, a voice offered her a chance to save herself and her best friend Makina. Once she slipped on the gem-studded ring dropped before her, the Apocalypse System activated, transforming her into and granting all the powers of a magical girl. Her outfit, however, looked nothing like the cute ones others wear. Her robes appeared as though stained with blood and her skills were all brutalizing attacks.
She didn't want this at all, but the system left her with a cryptic message that couldn't be ignored...
Apocalypse is coming, Kari Tachibana.
A world champion fencer is transported to another world and finds out that everyone can be a good swordsman with [Skills]. This offends him, as he feels it makes light of his hard work, and he sets out to see how far his own skills, the ones he earned through hard training, can stack up against [Skills].
This champion, Carr, seems to have other reasons for disliking [Skills] as well. Slowly, he begins to remember...

Girl meets dungeon. What could go right?
A story of a good-hearted Scholar driven by her compassion and curiosity. She might be a little combat averse, but um, isn't that only logical?
Love me a good grimdark, but sometimes I want to read feel-good fiction that isn't pure action, romance, or comedy. The plot and characters of Dungeon's Pet won't be all happy and fluffy, and the world will be more dungeons and monsters than rainbows and puppies, but overall the sweet moments should overshadow the bitter. Let's say three dollops of sugar for every pinch of salt, with lemon slices left on the saucers? Enjoy.
Note: This is NOT a typical dungeon story. If you are here for the dungeon aspect, then fair warning this will seem incredibly slow-burn to you. The dungeon will eventually become the most important 'character,' arguably, or the second-most important narratively, but you might jump out the window in frustration long before that happens. At its heart, the story's core remains 'girl meets dungeon,' not 'dungeon meets world.'

A time-loop fantasy story written after getting into litRPGs a bit. I wondered what it would be like if I just went and wrote a story about all the things I liked in web fiction without holding back: time loops, RPG stats, certain character archetypes, and harems played straight. Please be warned of lewd descriptions and depraved sexualization. If nothing else, this will be a sincere work.
Healing Dungeon" is about a 25 year old young man named Avan, who is torn from his rather boring life to wake up in Aorus, a world full of magic, monsters and dungeons.
Through a few lucky coincidences, and an ominous skill called "Potential", he awakens a class that has never existed before in all of Aorus, in a sealed-off and magic-sealed ruin: Dungeonheart (Human).
Dungeons are usually sentient, but never sapient, and can't actually walk on two legs through the world.
Join Avan as he pursues his passion as a healer and martial arts enthusiast, resulting in a hybrid of a moving dungeon with healing abilities.
"Healing Dungeon" will include: City building, strategy, very little romance, exploration of the world of Aorus, and a touch of power leveling. (There are elements from other fantasy novels, as well as anime, games, and more).
What will all be possible with a dungeon that can move, but still brings some of the familiar dungeon mechanics along for its journey?
-- Please note that the beginning and thus the first chapters were really my first writing works in english, and can only be rewritten at a later time (lack of time for new chapters) --
(The writing style and also the story improves VERY much from the 12th chapter at the latest! Proofreading is available, but I depend on any well-intentioned advice from you guys).
If you have any questions, suggestions, constructive criticism or just because you feel like it, feel free to leave me a comment below the respective chapters!
For every positive and serious review or rating I am infinitely grateful! ;)
I am a creature of few words and the beginning is therefore a little faster than I would have liked it now in retrospect. Please do not expect huge paraphrases and descriptions of the environments, but only what is really necessary to get into the scene.
Cheers and hopefully see you in the comment section.

The Sullivans are a normal family. But after being transported to the magical world of Arenia, normal isn’t a luxury they can afford.
It's just another Thanksgiving for the Sullivans—until the walls disappear and they discover they are being transported to Arenia, a place where game rules are real and their Earthen ability to reincarnate grants them unlimited potential.
Or it would, if the celestial administrator in charge of their case hadn't mixed up longitude and latitude and sent the wrong family. Oops. Too bad he already faked their deaths.
Now scattered throughout the Arenian wilderness and armed only with their Tomes—books containing all of their skills, accomplishments, and quests—the family members must discover a strength they didn't know they had if they are going to survive long enough to find each other.
Note: Contains some profanity and a turkey, but not a profane turkey. Personally, I'm fine with profane turkeys, but if that's where you draw the line, you should know there are none in this book. In fact, I'm going to promise you no profane turkeys for the entire series. That's my gift to you.
The earth has been overrun with monsters. Post-Purple Rain America is unrecognizable from the past. Jake is an adventurer, a leader of an adventuring team. A former mage, now he follows the strange path of cultivation. As far as he knows, he is one of the only people on earth who have stepped onto this path.
Events will unfold that change Jake's life forever. He is about to be caught up in something much bigger than himself, but one thing Jake is really bad at is giving up.
On the continent of Astresia, humanity exists as a series of fractured nations living atop the ruins of their long-forgotten past. Unaware of how far they have truly fallen or the bitter legacy that their ancestors have left behind. The human kingdoms exist in a constant state of perpetual struggle as they try valiantly to push back the constant encroachment of monstrous creatures that terrorise their borders and give their children just cause to fear what goes 'bump' in the night.

There, they will learn how to be more than just a dragon. What does it mean to be a woman? To fall in love? Life has never been easy for Typhoeus, but it is about to get a lot harder.
When an ancient evil stirs anew, Typhoeus must decide - should they turn their back on humanity that deems them the enemy, or should they try and save it in the name of the woman they claim to love?

When Aurum Industries announced the first Full Immersion Virtual Reality Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (FIVRMMORPG if you're hip) Limitless Online, most people saw it as an opportunity to live out their sword and sorcery fantasies. John, however, saw it as the opening of a new and as of yet uncrowded job market. One he was willing, and eager, to exploit.
Determined to make money through virtual hard work and effort, John sets his sights not on the heights of magic or the perfection of the sword, but instead upon the tilling of the soil and the sowing of seeds as he explores the wide and wonderful world of magical agriculture all from the comfort of his own bed.
Disclaimer: This is, at best, a very rough draft. I have already had to do one major rewrite and several minor rewrites of entire sections of the story, and it is a virtual certainty I will have to do re-writes again.
Such changes may be as small as editing a few numbers (such as going back and changing how much mana an object holds) or it may force me to re-write entire chapters (this has happened once already, and I'm really hoping it doesn't happen again, but... life). Minor re-writes will probably never be posted here. Major rewrites probably will.
Anyway, what this boils down to is: If you're looking for a fully cohesive story with few to no errors and publisher level editing, this is not the story for you. If your looking for a cohesive plot that's more than "Man farms, man farms, man farms well, man maybe makes money" you're probably also in the wrong place, but I will attempt to entertain you anyway.
After centuries of endless wars, the three greatest nations of the continent have come together in peace. As a symbol of their cooperation, they have worked together to establish the Grand Academy of Spiritual, Martial, and Arcane Arts, a place where the best and brightest of each nation can gather on neutral ground and share knowledge, techniques, and cultures. Can the peace truly last, or is the academy just another proxy for the constant conflicts the three nations face?
None of that matters to Lee Jia, a homeless young girl who's biggest concern is surviving the winter. But when she accidentally stumbles into the academy in search of a new place to stay, her destiny is changed forever. Determined to carve out a new place for herself and make the most of her good fortune, Lee Jia dives head first into the world of magic and martial arts.
Fates Parallel is my first serious attempt at writing a story, and a personal love letter to Eastern fantasy and xianxia stories. It's heavily inspired by East Asian culture, folklore, and mythology, with what is likely going to be a decidedly Western artistic license. I try to write every day, with a goal of about 45,000 words per month (~1500 per day). Chapter lengths are around 3000 words on average, releasing on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

This is a story about the newly-adult Calliope Smith having a terrible day that ends in her getting mysteriously teleported from Phoenix, Arizona to a fantasy world where her life is in constant danger. She considers this an upgrade. Someone evil is looking for her, and she doesn't know why. Someone who seems to know a lot about her has promised they'll help her, but she doesn't know who they are. All that matters to Callie is that magic is real and one way or another she's going to learn it.
The end of the world is coming up, sure, but Callie won't need to worry about that. In fact, by the time she even finds out about it one of the doomsday devices will already be destroyed, and the authorities will be well on the way to dealing with the other one. It's fine. Everything will be smooth sailing. Almost certainly. Probably.
Updating M/W/F, usually about 2500-3000 words per update. I'm taking my time, the main character won't start out with a clear purpose and won't get magic right away.
It's your standard portal fantasy / Isekai premise, but unlike some the main character's time on Earth and how she got pulled into another world will (eventually) be explored. Some slight GameLit-feeling stuff later, no menus or level-ups but there's something suspiciously like a skill tree when the magic system gets going. No number crunching, and while the main character will get to do some silly stuff she won't be a god like in some fics. Some reader interaction, ranging from adding to the worldbuilding to occasionally making big important decisions about skill progression.
Trigger Warnings: Foster care system references, crappy parenting. Some mental health adjacent stuff, specifically the main character has some issues where she experiences varying levels of empathy and emotional vulnerability depending on the day (it's complicated and not meant to portray any real-world conditions). Occasional violence including mention of death and grevious bodily harm, but no detailed descriptions of gore.
What do you call a mage incapable of casting spells? In this story, we usually call him Terry.
When the boy is accepted into Arcana Academy, his talent in the pillars of mana foundation awes everyone. All the bigger is the eventual disappointment when Terry turns out to be an utter failure at spellwork.
Diagnosis? Major aspect impairment. No cure. Ever.
Faced with expulsion, Terry is blessed with the unexpected kindness of others. Terry loses his spot in the Academy but in exchange, he finds a home with a family.
Terry starts to train as a pure mana cultivator but never stops looking for his own path as a mage – day after day, season after season, always searching for compatible spellwork…
Until finally, Terry’s perseverance earns him a single spell – the only spell he will ever be able to cast.
Chapter frequency: I aim for one chapter a week.
Chapter length: I try to keep chapters between 3000 and 6000 words.
Binge preference: I plan for 30 chapters per arc. If you want to binge a complete arc, then that is the number to wait for. I will also add a line to chapters indicating the beginning and end of an arc.
What to expect:
Progression fantasy with a western fantasy setting and with eastern fantasy elements.
A main character that is forced to explore a very narrow path of magic due to a permanent condition.
A main character that is a part of a larger cast.
A main character that is growing, but won't become the strongest around anytime soon.
A story following a single main character but with introduction or theme setting scenes without the main character.
What not to expect:
Edgy grimdark characters – I will never write a sexual violence scene or gory descriptions of torture. I hate reading it and I would hate writing it even more.
Romance – romantic relationships will never be the focus of the story and only appear in the background. The main character is preoccupied with other stuff and it will not come up. Other forms of relationships (family, friends, companions) play a bigger role.

Red awakens with no memory of his past inside a dangerous mine. Previously resigned to his fate, he discovers the power necessary to escape these caves and finally grasp destiny with his own two hands.
Accompany Red as he grows from a mere slave into a man who will forever change the world around him. Gods, devils, and much worse things await to face him as he struggles to reach the pinnacle of this world.
What to expect from this story:
- Intelligent, determined, and independent MC.
- Detailed worldbuilding involving western and eastern influences.
- Broad but deep, strategy-oriented power system.
- Cultivation mechanics.
- A steadfast focus on the MC's quest; a story enriched by mystery and memorable side characters.
I also want to thank my friend for helping me edit my story!
They're supposed to be places full of danger and loot, where heroes come to fight monsters, gain experience, and hopefully walk out with some really cool armor.
They're supposed to be controlled by a sentient mana crystal with an alien intelligence with goals only to expand, devour, and become stronger in order to protect itself.
Sometimes, however, they're home to a family of badgers and an assortment of other strange creatures.
Sometimes their core has absolutely no idea what they're doing and is really just trying their best, so can you all please stop judging them? It started out as a complete mistake and now they're just in way too deep to turn their back on the whole badger thing!

If you're looking for instant wisdom, immediate progression and rapid character growth, such is not found here. Just like in real life there's no instant gratification. Characters in this book take their time improving, making friends, falling in love, understanding themselves and each other, learning and progressing very slowly. They will make tons of mistakes that seem horrible, but actually all serve a greater purpose of liberation. They will rattle and begin to break the chains that bind and blind them only in chapter 42.
Also, there is a lot of art with naked butts here. This book is all about creating tons of Renaissance Chiaroscuro-style art for every chapter!
I died having a dagger stuck to my heart. I had no choice but to face and accept my death.
But when I woke up, I was in a different body.
They called me "Princess". Sure, cool.
Now, with this new life, I became a different person.
I am a pure and innocent princess. A beautiful and adorable maiden that must be protected.
A fragile princess. Delicate. Precious.
Those are what I am... well... not exactly... but I do act that way.

Life comes at you fast, and Julian Marco’s life is one flat tire away from being the worst kind of country song.
But the blues may soon feel like an afterthought, once Julian wakes up in a hellish shadow dimension, with no idea how he got there or why. Forced to fight for his very survival may cost him his remaining sanity. Well, that or the fresh pair of fangs and burning lust for blood. Little does Julian realize what happens in the darkness could have drastic consequences for the rest of earth. And discoveries await that may just contain some dark secret from humanity’s ancient past.

What if an NPC dismissed with contempt by the players of your role-playing game was to become an adventurer?
Ninetoes is a wizard, which is unusual for a hobgoblin, and more unusual still, he’s no longer an NPC.
The world of Adrenon is a game world and a twist of fate has made Ninetoes an Adventurer. With this new status comes access to power, magic and skills that his kind can rarely attain, but more, it is a chance to grow and become the centre of his own story.
In his first quest, among the ancient ruins of Kavralach, Ninetoes faces danger and intrigue. Failure will mean the destruction of his home and his people, for whom he now has the potential to become their champion.
Ninetoes must master the magic system of the game, advance as rapidly as he can, and find friends. For a wizard alone is vulnerable.
If he can prevail, the hobgoblin Adventurer might someday become the hero he needs to be.
Eric Grayson was just a welder by day and fantasy junky by night. His free days were spent camping in the woods and reading. When he falls through a crack in the foundation of reality his life is going to get a lot more interesting. Making his way through the sea of chaos, he finds himself, with a little help from a Goddess, in a new universe, on a new planet.
The exalted mage lords of the Empire have ruled for over two thousand years. Keeping the Empire safe from the tribes of beast kin and the void monsters that break into reality. A world on the edge of the great universal tree, a bastion against the ever-encroaching void. The realm of the dead and souls is far. The touch of the Gods and Goddesses is faint and growing weaker.
This is a Litrpg / Gamelit where I am seeking to explore the idea where an Empire like Rome made it to the Edwardian/Victorian period. With all the decadence and kinky/bdsm stuff, Rome was known for, intact and evolved. Think pride and prejudice but the complete opposite of prudish. This story contains explicit scenes. This is not a collect slave women to bang story.
This is not an endless struggle grind. The character is OP. The character is figuring out how to adapt his power to the world.
Last, I will point out, glass is five hundred time sharper than steel and can be sharpened down to just a single atom in thickness.
Please leave a review and rating as it helps me improve my writing.
Feedback is always appreciated; I hope you enjoy.
I am working on my grammar as well and hopefully it will improve, through editing. As It has never been a strong suit of mine.

As a university freshman in the fictional nigh-third-world country of Broica, Sean, finds himself falling into a bottomless rabbit hole as the "System" integrates Earth into itself, allowing for him to see the world as it truly is. He soon finds out that his girlfriend, family, and even hometown aren't as they all seemed --a conflict between vampires, werewolves, hunters and mystical forces rages in the Undercity as alien forces try to overtake the City Above, all the while Sean struggles to understand even a tiny bit of what is happening. And he wonders... had the System changed his life, or had it simply made the transition faster?

Adventurers flock to massive crypts brimming with riches and promises of power. Heroes storm the gates of dark fortresses, their swords drawn in the name of freedom. Gods tear the heavens asunder, clashing over the fate of the realm itself. Arek cooks lasagna and tops it with a dash of finely chopped basil.
Arek never wanted to fight again, but his plans have gone awry in the best way possible. After joining the Happy Sunflowers as their cook, Arek quickly grew attached to his new friends and party. After escaping a strange dungeon by the skin of their teeth, the group find themselves plunged into a struggle for power that has simmered beneath the kingdom for dozens of years.
The strange power that has entered Arek and Ming seems to be spreading to the rest of the party, and none of them know what it wants. Arek's past barks at his heels, but he has no plans of going back to the person he used to be. The future seems uncertain, but there is one thing the orc knows for sure. He has meals to prepare, and, this time, nobody is going to kill his friends.
All the recipes in this book are real recipes that I have personally made. The actual recipes will be included at the end of the chapter, and I highly encourage everyone reading to try them out. In addition, make sure to check out the Morcster Chef comic at this link!
Morcster Chef: Reckoning is the 2nd book in the Morcster Chef series. You can read the first one on RoyalRoad at THIS link.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Morcster Chef is a comedy / fantasy novel. It has equal parts cooking and Dungeons & Dragons style adventuring. It does not have: an OP / bitter protagonist, harems, excessively dark topics, or a depressing storyline. It is meant to be lighthearted.

Being small and fluffy might not be the most effective combat strategy, but at least it's good for attracting women. Perhaps a bit too good at that.
When one man is wrongly sentenced to the dungeon to become live entertainment in a fight for his life, a desperate choice and random chance turn the convict from a man into a beast—into the kind of beast commonly seen sitting atop women's laps rather than fighting in a dungeon. The latter might be what he fears he is stuck with, but he discovers that the two are not mutually exclusive. He also discovers that some women really, really love the cute and fluffy aesthetic, and that maybe being called a "good boy" isn't so bad after all. But if he wants to live out his new dream of being a lap pet for beautiful women, he’s going to have to fight his way through the dungeon and survive until the very end.

Iris, a foreign world engulfed in war, direly needs help. To replenish their troops and fight off horrors from the worst nightmares, the gods resurrect and summon living beings from another world: Earth.
Aito Walker, a broken man, is one such ordinary being amongst many others. Upon his revival, he will be put to the test during deadly trials.
He will start with almost nothing. No overpowered magic, no cheat skills, no-nonsense divine armors, no godly weapons. Only a peculiar system, increased strength and his wits as the best weapon.
Bearing a sin—he could not, cannot, and will not forget—haunting him to this day, Aito will strive to regain what little honor he has left.
He will suffer. He will fail. Taking advantage of his weaknesses, pain, anguish, sorrow and fear will gnaw at his sanity. But a powerful yearning will keep him from falling apart. An ever-burning flame melting away the despair and welding back the broken pieces of courage.
A single desire.
“I will find redemption no matter the cost.”
“Forge your own Reality!”
The Digital Age has passed and the Virtual Revolution is in full swing. Realesque Incorporated’s magnum opus has taken the world by storm and millions are flocking to get a taste of the world’s most advanced Full Dive Virtual Reality game: Prism.

What will he and those around him find as they search for a place to call their own?
Author's Note: This is the new page for Prism. A small warning: the story starts out slower than most, but the pace picks up a bit after chapter 2. This is a rewrite of my first and only story, and I hope to do it justice. Any feedback or suggestions that you might have are more than welcome!
Release Schedule: New chapter every Sunday.

Genesis is a Post-Apoctalyptic LitRPG
Thomas and his best friend Kevin were the top players of Holy Arc Online, one of the hardest MMORPGs in the world, and also one of the worst-rated MMOs of all time. They had both embraced the challenge it provided and had finally, after years of dedication, beat the final boss of the game. However, all wasn't as it seemed.
Welcome to the game, Genesis.
System Integration shall now begin.
With the dawning of the apocalypse, so too comes the collapse of society. How will Thomas and his friends react to the world crashing around them? Will they be able to find their loved ones? And will they be able to carve their own home in this new, and dangerous reality?
Author's Note: As of right now the release schedule for Genesis | Book 1 of the Rise of the Paragon Series will be released weekly on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 3:00 pm EST.
Writing Genesis is a personal experiment of mine in writing a grand-scale novel within the LitRPG genre. I have written some fictions in the past, but none near as ambitious in the content as I eventually envision Genesis will be. So! Join me on my journey, provide helpful criticism, edits, or whatever suits your mind! I appreciate any and all feedback!
We also have a Discord for anybody who wants to talk all things Genesis!!

Jason had thought about punching a Shil’vati.
Not only had the aliens conquered Earth with almost trivial ease, the seven-foot purple amazons also had the audacity to start running the planet better than Humanity ever had.
He'd never do it though. He was a reasonable guy, just trying to get by under his new feminine overlords.
Not everyone gets a soul. The rise of industry and mechanization has sent the world's population booming upward, striving relentlessly for the fixed handful of souls that level armies and steer the fate of nations. The remnants of a crumbled empire fight in a grinding, bloody war against their ancient enemy.
Not everyone gets a soul, but Michael must - for he is the scion of a lord, and the soulless cannot hold such a title. For five years he has tried to tempt one of the souls freed by its vessel's death. Five years of pain and failure, earning only his father's contempt. At last, one more opportunity to earn his soul has come.
But not everyone gets a soul quite like his.
Updates weekly on Wednesdays.

What's better than somebody with normal arms and legs working in a tavern? Somebody with tentacles.
When one man wakes up and finds himself dangling over the endless sky below, in a small body with tentacles and without any memories, he is immediately thrown into a fight for his life. He doesn't know where, who, nor what he is. He does, however, know that he has no intention of becoming dinner for wild beasts.
Fortunately, he discovers that the floating island he's on is populated with people who are accepting of his unknown status so long as he makes himself useful. The beautiful women on the island are nice, too. Even better for the new tentacle creature, they like cute things and tentacles.
Unfortunately for everybody on the island, their quiet, peaceful life can't exist without interruption forever. With livestock being stolen for food more often, a lurking danger may threaten the lifestyle they have come to know. But until then, there's always more work to do in the tavern!

Follow the journey of Alec, in a strange world where he seeks his own existence.
It's my first attempt writing a fiction, I got inspired by many writers on RR and finally decided to write my own. I'd accept any suggestions or criticism.
Did I mention that there will be basic physics and chemistry?
William was trying to fix his past mistakes when suddenly everything came to an end. Given a second chance, he now strives to figure out his place in the fantastical world of his favorite game, but not everything is peachy in the beginning, for together with him is the young duchess Lucrezia Sommer Wulfgrem, the first major villainess of the game, and former owner of the body William now inhabits.
Follow them on their shared struggle to uncover a dangerous conspiracy that will engulf all of the duchy of Wulfgrem.
An honest shake at the Otome villainess genre, where I’ll try to the best of my limited abilities to write something that many other novels in the genre tend to gloss over.
English is not my first language;
All criticism is welcome!

The world of science ended at the whim of a stranger. Life and death were beyond Humanity's control yet this stranger offered them a chance. Make your own way in the new world. Carve out a path to a magic that fits you. And if you pave that path far enough you can mold the growing new earth in your own image.
This is the second iteration of this story. Mostly a matter of editing, cleaning up the occasional plot hole and expanding the story to give secondary characters more depth.
I would like to offer a small apology to my previous readers. Until I read back through this story I had no idea how many editing issues I had let slip by. A strong desire to finish the story in my head unfortunately interferes with taking the time to properly edit.
The reworked version I am attaching will hopefully greatly reduce such problems. (I am not a deity to promise true perfection!)
