Original Action Adventure Fantasy Reincarnation Martial Arts Supernatural Male Lead Multiple Lead Characters Magic Wuxia Xianxia High Fantasy

Du Cha Ming was a normal person. Going with the flow, never making any real decisions. But then as Cha Ming begins to question his place in the universe, a fateful encounter gives him another chance at life. A chance that takes him to a place where he can make his own destiny.

Reborn in an ancient land filled with demons, devils, and angels, Cha Ming finds himself facing challenges he never imagined. He soon discovers that only the powerful get to make choices, and the rest don’t get a say at all.

Prior to his mysterious rebirth, he was left with a riddle, one that will change his life, for better or for worse. But who left this riddle? And why was he sent here?

Cha Ming sets out to find the answers, because if he doesn’t, he may lose himself and everything he holds dear.

Note: This is an Eastern Fantasy series, and the precise genre is Xianxia. It contains martial arts, cultivation, immortals, demons, Chinese culture, and elements of Buddhism and Daoism. The story will be split between several character view points, but the focus will be on the main character and his journey towards immortality.

Now I will tell you what this story isn’t about:

  1. Harems.
  2. Excessive face slapping.
  3. One unreasonable young master after another.
  4. Unreasonable villains. Therefore, don’t expect the MC to have his provoke skill activated at all times.
  5. Constantly underestimated MC.
  6. A morally questionable MC.

 

If all of these things about typical Xianxia novels bother you, you’ve come to the right place.

Fantasial Apocalypse

Comet Storms, Invaders from Space, Zombie Apocalypse, Pandemics, or the Armageddon— Throughout history, humans have imagined all sorts of ways as to how [ The world would end ].

Global warming and dealing with disasters, such as plagues, earthquakes, wars, floods, invasions, murders, droughts, and battles. Some says that all of these could end the world.

Even the 16th century prophet Michel de Nostradame, the very famous Nostradamus, seemed to know how the end of the world was going to come to pass and prophesized.

But reality was proven different.

The world didn’t end with those simple propositions.

In fact, it was completely different. It could even be said to be magical, straight out of fantasy stories.

Yeah. That’s right! Monsters and Beasts, Gods and Demons all of them appeared one after another and caused the world to end.

… And this event marks the beginning of a new era. An era of monsters and demon roaming around the world.

However, these invaders hated humanity and so they tried to extinguish them. Leading Humanity to fight for their survival!

Allen Bando, the world’s most wanted criminal; [ The Black Demon King ] joined the [ Dawn Alliance ] to fight but failed in the end.

Now that he was given a second chance, what calamity would he brought in his return… ?

Allen: I have seen my land change with my own eyes and watched the masses brought to their knees.

Even though I died, I have not regretted what I have done, but what I have not done.

The world change and my comrades betrayed me but in this second life, I will not lose.

World, bring it on!

You want to see me fail but not today motherf*cker! This world has every odd against me but I will stand my ground because this world should remain mine forever.

Many are torn apart but I am a Man!

I will stand with my heart on my sleeve.

I will kneel nor bow to no one!!

World, for the second time around, here I come!!

The True Endgame

The True Endgame

Original Adventure Comedy Fantasy Romance Virtual Reality Harem Slice of Life Male Lead Magic Profanity Sexual Content GameLit

What defines endgame content? Is it raiding epic dungeons to take down the strongest bosses there are, or is it facing off against other players to climb the ladder and become the top PvPer? Is endgame content gathering materials and crafting the strongest and most exotic equipment that there is, or is it all about playing the market and amassing more wealth than everybody else? Some people even argue that fashion and minigames are endgame content!

Ryouta has already done all of that. Having spent most of his life playing MMO after MMO, he now finds himself wanting to live a virtual life that is far more relaxed and casual than what he is known for.

To Ryouta, the true endgame is fishing.

Original Comedy Drama Fantasy LitRPG Virtual Reality Slice of Life Female Lead

The story of a girl who finds her life is not what she wanted. So she gets another one.


Schedule: One short chapter a day, five days a week.

Book One is available free on Amazon and EPUB.

Books Two to Four are out now.

 

Chapters will be around 500-1000 words. This will not change so if you don't like reading very short chapters wait till the end of the week or even end of the month. This many chapters a week isn't easy to pull off so please bear that in mind.


This is a VRMMORPG story, but the ones I've read tend to use VR as an excuse to get into a fantasy world and then don't really play up the game aspect other than pulling up a status screen every now and then. To me, MMOs are about more than the fantasy setting. 

Bugs, exploits, devs who don't understand their own game, OP classes, over the top nerfs, p2w, ridiculous RNG, cash shop fiasco, lockboxes, raging players, broken mechanics, limited bag space, tedious crafting and above all that, a company trying to squeeze money out if its playerbase while pretending they're just in the business of having fun. 

Of course, then there's the orcs and elves.

This story is about finding yourself in a completely immersive fantasy game, but it's also about what a game like that would really be like.

As of 12-15-18, the story is finished.  I am planning to edit and will release the books as I finish in one big go, but there isn't a timeline on any of that.

 

Marty had a fairly easy life as a cook for Arctic Storm Entertainment headquarters when he gets an offer from the company to try out a new playstyle for their biggest VRMMORPG, Oblivion Online.  Follow him as he makes his way through the game as one of the monster races trying to survive against the forces of light.  

 

Author's note: I will update every Monday and Friday for sure, with the possibilities of bonus chapters through the week if I get extra writing done.  I also did a disservice to several of my characters early on.  I'm slowly working through a re-write, but it will be a while as I want to make sure I get it right this time around.

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.

King Grey has unrivaled strength, wealth, and prestige in a world governed through martial ability. However, solitude lingers closely behind those with great power. Beneath the glamorous exterior of a powerful king lurks the shell of man, devoid of purpose and will.

Reincarnated into a new world filled with magic and monsters, the king has a second chance to relive his life.  Correcting the mistakes of his past will not be his only challenge, however. Underneath the peace and prosperity of the new world is an undercurrent threatening to destroy everything he has worked for, questioning his role and reason for being born again.

Are two heads better than one?

For Kevin, who is sharing a body of a two-headed ogre, the answer is a resounding no. Hell no. That's because the other head is a former human princess. Whether through sorcery or subterfuge, neither had any choice in the matter. They are quite literally stuck with each other and need to survive in a world of monsters.

Garth Daniels is a down on his luck handyman in a quiet little town in the middle of America when our universe is co-opted into a war between an unstoppable race of reality-hopping monsters that feeds on the flesh of living creatures, and a conglomeration of thousands of realities, nested inside each other like a matroska doll.

We're the new layer.

These monsters, the Kipling, can only be defeated in a reality with very specific physics, otherwise they are unstoppable, and so earth's universe has been assimilated to give us a fighting chance.

Garth must set aside everything that he knows, and think fast to adapt to the new laws of nature if he wants to survive.

It is the Future. The realm of online video game entertainment has grown, creating vast and wonderous worlds for people to explore and enjoy.

This is the story of Kaleb, a young gamer, and his adventures in the latest Super-Hero Virtual reality MMO: Modern Age Online. Join him as he takes on villains (both player and NPC), joins forces with other player heroes, and even deals with some of the bureaucracy of being a hero in a perfect virtual recreation of the world. No cheats, no guides, just one newbie Super-Hero against the forces of villainy in his new virtual home.

 

Update Schedule: I am gonna try and keep it at a chapter a day Monday-Thrusday, leaving Friday-Sunday to write ahead a bit. Leaving a buffer of chapters in case I miss a day. Thats the plan at least, we'll see how it shakes out. Of course this is subject to change in the face of personal emergencies and such.

 

Notes: 1.) While not my first time writing, this is my first time throwing anything i've written at the tender mercies of the internet. All criticisms welcome. 2.) Just to inform people early: There is no evil corporation looking to control the world with VR, there is no Krueger-esque "if you die in the game, you die for real.", and this isn't a story of some OP harem-loving god of the system. Nothing wrong with those stories this just isn't one. This is a simple story about a guy playing a game and finally 3.) This story is extermely rough, i did very little editing, this is just me gauging interest really.

oh, and english is my 1st language, if for some reason you find that important.

What if you were transported to a fantasy world with no special abilities, no OP weapons and no status screen to boost your stats? Never mind finding the dragon’s treasure or defeating the Demon Lord, you only need to worry about one thing—how to stay alive.

A group of young Brits wake up in a strange, fantastical land with creatures from myth and legend. They are given archaic weapons they don't know how to use and told to do their best.

Convinced it has to be some kind of virtual reality RPG, all the people summoned form parties and set off on their adventures, leaving behind the people nobody wants in their group.

Story of my life, thinks Colin.

Yeah, my third story, if you exclude the one shot^^. Hope I won't struggle with a good end, as I have with the others.... But be warned, there is a high chance that I will have to place it on Hiatus for some time. But that won't happen until I reach the current One Piece storyline. And maybe I will kill them off somewhere along the line, remember the Grand Line is dangerous^^.

LEGEND OF THE EMPYREAN BLACKSMITH

After being kicked out of the orphanage due to turning 15, Lino finds himself stranded on the streets. With motivation to become the best blacksmith in the world, he seeks to become a disciple of the Bridge Village's best blacksmiths, only to be kicked out of all of them. He soon finds himself roaming the streets aimlessly on an empty stomach, jobless, peniless and homeless. After hiding himself in an alley when night fell, the reality finally catches up to him - he was truly alone.

Yet, morning come, he is greeted by a knee of an old man who, after beating him for sleeping in the old man's 'backyard', takes him in. Finally being given a helping hand, he clutches tightly onto it, becoming the old man's disciple and learning the ways of the crafting, naturally while flirting with the old man's wife in his free time.

Little did he know that this encounter would spark an adventure that would take him to the heights he never believed even existed, and would let him meet people he'd only read about in the books. It's a story of Lino - an orphaned child who would come to be known by many names, but only one that he'd ever truly accept: Empyrean Blacksmith.
