The first truly immersive Virtual Reality system has just been announced. Made by NERV, the EVA-series immersion pods promise a Better Than Life experience, unlike anything that's been seen before. Gone are clunky goggles and wired controls. Now you simply lie down, and the machine does all the work.

 

Following up on their previous hit games, NERV has created the first true VRMMORPG, a sci-fi offering called Dreams Amongst the Stars. Because of the impressive display he made during the closed Beta of the game, one player has been offered a contract as a paid streamer, and the chance to play the game on the highest difficulty possible. Watch as he forges his own path, into the black.

The story like many (more or less). The dude was living, the dude has died, the dude was (semi)reincarnated after extremely cliche conversation with god. In the new world, MC has access to a game-like system. And that's all. Really, nothing more... Or wait, actually the story is being written together with readers (I do know where my story is heading, but the path of this "travel" is made together with you. I will run you down with polls, you are also free to drop any suggestions in the comment section. I am not English-native speaker, so prepare for grammar mistakes (feel free to point em out - it will help me improve) The story contains blood and gore, racism, all of possible forms of ruling a country (from matriarchy to patriarchy, from democracy to empire, reign of science and reign of religion), slavery, sex, bananas and whatever is bad in any society. So, if you are over sensitive... turn around...

Earn a following, earn extra prizes, die...then you die for real and another is sent to take your place from the beginning. No one knows what happens if you beat your respective game, because no one has...Me? I'm a an ex soldier, fought in the last real war against these 'Beings'.

We all have dreams of becoming powerful, becoming the cool mage that rules the world, living as the dashing rogue who can steal a kingdom's entire royal treasury undetected, or perhaps, the valiant knight whose prowess on the battlefield is unmatched by all. 

However, when the apocalypse strikes, you can only use what you have at your disposal, be that guns, baseball bats, your fists, or maybe, just maybe, a shovel.

One young man who goes by the name of Darenzo has just had his world altered into one that is now the focal point of some sort of experiment.

Just at the end of his shift at the skip site, a worldwide announcement was made, that not only changed Darenzo's life, but also the lives of all of the Earth's inhabitants.

Can Darenzo survive and thrive in this changed world? Or will his growing madness best him? The answers to these question can only be revealed with time.

The punishment for unauthorized births is death. Out of fear, SC keeps his strange abilities as his darkest secret. He pretends to be nothing more than a mere Regular while his peers develop unique powers, varying from controlling lightning to producing diamond hard skin. But when his mother is kidnapped by an unknown organization, SC has no choice but to act.


SC ventures into a school of talented students to learn to fight, where he must learn to master his powers without revealing their true nature. But soon he realizes that the school is more than it appears and that it may hold the secret to his missing mother. To rescue her, he will have to reveal powers never before seen in all of history.

Seti Tutt, a recent graduate of the university, was too weak as a wind adept to become anything amazing with his abilities. However, his sight was stolen and now has to learn how to see with his wind, ultimately landing him as a student at Prestige Academy where enemies abound.

Release Schedule

Almost-weekly every Monday.
The almost part of it just means I'll skip an update after several releases to catch up on the writing.

Story cover was commissioned by me.

The Voice of the World

The Voice of the World

Original Adventure Fantasy LitRPG Summoned Hero Male Lead Magic

Jason Elric used to be an ordinary college student living in the heart of San Francisco. He had a part time job, he played online games with friends he got along moderately well with, and he earned reasonably good grades. The worst he really had to worry about in life was turning in his coursework on time and not being late to class.

Now, though? Now fighting for his life and running from a horde of giant frogs that want to make him their next meal is just another Tuesday.

Thanks to a summoning ritual gone terribly right, Jason has found himself trapped in a world eerily similar to the role playing games games he used to play for fun. Unfortunately for the now ex-college student, everything happening around him is terrifyingly real and if he wants to survive, he’ll have to figure out how to exploit the system for his benefit before it’s too late.


The Voice of the World is the first part of what is planned to be a multi-book, Isekai LitRPG story with crafting elements, set in the fantasy world known as Verdania. This is my first time posting online for public consumption, so bear with me as I work to find a style that people like.

While I may occasionally write scenes that may deal with heavy concepts, expect this story to be primarily light hearted high fantasy. There will be a lot of common fantasy tropes involved, as this story got its start as a simple practice exercise, rather than any plan to actually post it. However, it’s grown on me, so I felt it’s worth sharing after all.

Thus, if you’re looking for more serious/original/unusual stories, you might want to look elsewhere. For the rest of you, feel free to leave suggestions, as well as to point out grammar and spelling mistakes; I’ll do my best to make edits to correct them. I do my own editing currently, and it’s easy to miss things when you know what’s supposed to be there, so such call outs are highly encouraged.

Content TLDR: No harems, probably no romance (unless it makes sense for the story later on) (it did, eventually), definitely no sex (keeping this PG-13 or close to it), limited profanity. Does/Will contain mixes of magic and technology (think Warhammer, Final Fantasy); copious amounts of blue tables; race, gender, and sexual equality concepts; crafting sequences; and (slightly, but not overbearingly) strong protagonists. If you don’t like these things, go elsewhere instead of downvoting people for content instead of writing quality.

Updates Mondays and Thursdays, minimum chapter length ~4000 words. Sometimes longer, sometimes a little shorter if pacing calls for it.

Author's Comment:
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.

My world faced its end, but I refused to perish with it! So I intercepted a summoning ceremony from another world.
One moment!? My summoner tried to summon a demon? Fuck it, I think it's better to break the contract and do my own thing... or not? Why is Mrs. Sacrifice hugging me? And why am I suddenly a child!?

I am not entirely sure how this fiction will turn out. And I am not sure on the tags either. They may change. Bear with it.
As always, how chapters turn out is up to my mood.

Original Fantasy Anti-Hero Lead Gore Traumatising content

A notorious and devilish killer in the highest Divine Realms has failed in his attempt to assassinate a God Emperor, one of the four loftiest beings in the universe. Executed following the failed attempt, Ebon Dirge escapes to the Mortal Realms with only a fragment of his soul intact. Determined to finish the job, Dirge chooses an unconventional path to obtain a power that could even the odds: destiny.

Lacking allies, cultivation, and even a body, he must take a chance and forge a new path to seize destiny for himself before rising to confront his nemesis. 

But none of this will come easily. To capture destiny, Dirge must use every trick in the book to pry it from the grasp of a variety of would-be heroes and legends. Succeed, and he may finally have his chance to finish the job; fail, and he will become a mere stepping stone for another. Devour destiny, or be devoured.

PUBLICATION DETAILS

This work will have a minimum of 5 chapters per week, published on weekdays at 9:00 AM Pacific time.  Usually, this carries through the weekends and occasionally multiple chapters will be posted in a single day; second chapters are released at 9:00 PM Pacific time if they do happen.

This work is flagged as Mature for Gore and Traumatizing Content per the guidelines here; as a xuanhuan-derivative tale with a not-so-heroic protagonist, the reasons for this should be apparent without having to spoil anything.  There are also sexually suggestive scenes, but nothing explicit, and the very occasional profanity does pop out.

Or seducing their avatars.

Lucky for Dom, the dungeon’s avatars are beautiful monster girls. But they’re also the DarkRealm’s fiercest warriors, and there’s a fine line between murder and seduction.
