Given his first weapon when he was still a child, Edward Lee lived a life full of violence in a nation torn by war.
Tormented by the demons of his past, he believed Death would free him.
But through the games of beings beyond his understanding, his death turned out to be the starting point of a new life in a strange world of magic and monsters, as a young teenager.
Beyond simply finding a way to survive the dangers of his new life, Edward will soon realize that there is still a price to pay for his past actions.

Follow our mc as he dies and gets reincarnated into another world, but unlike your average isekai, his reincarnation goes awry in an unexpected, eldritch way. Now he is in a new world far unlike our own, and with the body of a weak eldritch abomination, but still has the mind of his human self. He must now use his strange new abilities to gain power, potentially start an occult following, and most importantly; ascend above all those around him.
P.S: This story has purposely not been tagged as a horror, and more so uses the aesthetics of that genre more than anything else.
After being betrayed, framed and kicked down to the ground, our protagonist was sentenced to life imprisonment. But a few days later, a global disaster occurred, people from all nations migrated to underground refuges.
As a prisoner, he thought his life was over, abandoned by everyone. However, he wakes up, greeted by Gaia, the person responsible for New Earth.
New Earth was a second chance for him, watch as he builds up his own dungeon and become known by all as the Emperor of Madness

I've merged several of the earlier entries together to be more accommodating to new readers. If you tried reading before but couldn't get past the whole "I have to click next a hundred times" thing then it should be much better now.
Hi. My name is Erica. I'm a sprite, and though I might be a little young I'm living on my own for the first time. I can't wait to meet new people and to learn more about the world I call my home.
"You're too arrogant."
To Dyon, it seemed as though these words were heard all the time.
However, how could these people possibly know of all his hard work? Of the fact that sleep was but a distant relative of his. How could they know that he never had a single moment to rest.
And yet, despite their ignorance, they still said, "you're too arrogant..."
But where were those people when a five-year-old Dyon's eyes shone looking at a computer screen filled with code? Where were those people when an eight-year-old Dyon played his piano and plucked his guitar strings until his fingers bled... needing to vent his feelings about his lost mother without bothering his fatigued father? Where were those people when Dyon sat alone at ten-years-old… when his parents were gone, and the only thing left was a room filled with inventions and computers?
Dyon's arrogance wasn't borne of thin air. It was his hard work. It was his shield. And he wasn't willing to give it up...
Now alone, he left his home behind.
He was no longer the boy genius who changed the human mortal realm. He was now nothing but a commoner, a bug noble families saw fit to step on. An insignificant existence.
And yet, Dyon was still the same unchanging person. Standing tall, his eyes firm and his will indomitable.
This so-called Martial World would come to understand the meaning behind his existence...
"You're quite bold for a girl who's almost been recluse for her whole life you know," Dyon said chuckling.
"Little sister Delia and Meiying probably think so too, but you've been in my heart since the opening ceremony. Maybe not exactly in this way… But sometimes a foot in the door for a long time leads to a fully open one, no?"
Dyon smiled, 'it seems like she's been watching from afar for a long time… it must be lonely being in that room with Libro all the time.'
Dyon felt a delicate hand playing with his collar, "the truth is that I'm always playing the gentle big sister role, mostly because I have no idea how much longer I'll have the chance to…"
The vulnerability in her voice made Dyon tremble. Madeleine was so strong, yet it seemed even martial artists had their weaknesses too.
RMW happens to be the very first novel I've ever written. I have to admit that the first volume requires a lot of work. However, from the second volume onward I am confident in saying that it becomes a ride just as enjoyable as some of the best wuxia novels available. If you happen to read that far, and disagree, feel free to join our discord and call me an idiot for wasting your time, LMAO. I hope you guys stick it out to the end <3
3-4 chapters a day, everyday.
***this story has NO NTR. Nor will it ever have NTR... ***
***I've begun posting pictures of what some characters of Focus look like on my twitter. So, check out @Awespec if you're interested***
***this story of mine has also been uploaded to webnovel as well (in the description of webnovel (at the end), there is proof of this).
Leon and his father, Artorias, are the last remaining scions of a once powerful and illustrious family of lightning mages. After barely surviving an attack that destroyed their home fifteen years ago, they now live in the dangerous Northern Vales, a desolate wilderness far away from civilization. But those who want them dead are strong, patient, and relentless, and it is only a matter of time before they find the two they seek...
Posted first on my website, wardenreading.com, which will be 4 chapters ahead of anywhere else I post. Expect new chapters every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday around 10 am CT
I have taken the WriTE Pledge, meaning that I will see this story to completion, no matter how many eons it may take.
Here I am, sitting on a mountain so far away from civilisation it might as well be the godforsaken arse of the world, about to ascend. Can't wait to leave this crapfest of a planet... Turns out that the higher ups decided that an unaffiliated rogue like me is too big of a risk to let run around free.
Seems like this entire cultivation world is a late stage capitalist money making machine for the powers that be in the higher realms, and me stealing the good loot in front of their descendants and sect disciples noses finally pissed them off enough to take action.
First, they sent all the sect masters and hidden dao protectors to off me - which failed, obviously. Heh, afterwards they simply bitch slapped me out of their universe though.
That is interesting and all, but I just woke up in a valley watching some critters murder each other while trying not to freak out about how bad it smells here.
Soo… where the fuck am I? Why is that deer fighting a feathery squirrel? Why am I teaching this baby rabbit saved from a cannibalistic mother how to kick beings in the face with the power of qi?

Go read my other story; Skeleton in Space.
The emergence of monsters and superhumans hasn't disrupted the modern-era. People have adapted to their new way of life and among them is Casper Clay, a man who has long since awakened to a gift that seemed to be more of a curse until it leads him to a different path. Seeing the opportunity in front of him, Casper heads down a road that could lead to prosperity just as easily as it could lead to an untimely end.
One day the entire world fell asleep at the same time. No matter who or where, all people fell into a deep slumber. During that singular moment, a single dream was shared between the disparate members of humanity. It was a dream about creating a new life in a new world. Many people died during the first dream. Drivers crashed their vehicles. Surgeons collapsed atop their patients. Workers fell from rooftops, and many others met their end during the time that the first dream was forced upon humanity.
Despite the tragedy of that day, the strangely videogame like nature of that dream and the world presented therein has caught the world in a web of interest and intrigue. One young man, decides to change his life by living for that strange new world and its untapped possibilities.
After a great deal of preparation, Danika begins her new digital dragon's life in a very small way.
They say the "Living Jade Empire" creates individualized quests. They say it can read your mind. They say you can find your heart's desire. They say that there's never been a game like it, and they're right but… they're also wrong.
The game is a data mine, built to retell the old tales that humans have been telling each other since language was invented. It doesn't read your mind, but it reads your search history, your favorites, and your blogs. The "Living Jade Empire" is literally crafted from fables, legends, fantasies, and maybe just a bit of stardust.
But in the end, will the game be able to figure out what Danika wants most? Will the desires of other players take priority? Or, will playing it change her, until she desires what it can give her?
A journey is always made up of many small steps, and this game has still only just begun.
Engineer reborn as a dungeon core in a fantasy world.
Ike was a hobbyist clockmaker and former aerospace engineer enjoying his retirement on a habitat station orbiting Saturn. Unfortunately, his hard-earned peace was disturbed by a rapid decompression event and his resulting death.
Contrary to his expectations, Ike found himself reincarnated as a handicapped and supposedly-man-eating dungeon core in a fantastic realm of wonder, magic, dragons, and wizards! Faced with a luckless start in this hostile new world, Ike will have to employ his new-found near-perfect recall of his past life experiences along with ingenuity to survive and manifest his ambitions while struggling with morality.
If you hate first-time writers, info-dumps, frequent and random off-topic science/technical explanations, a slow story pace, (somewhat slice-of-lifey) inner monologues, a relatively OP MC (not really), or unexpectedly technical jargon, then you probably won't enjoy Dungeon Engineer.
Also, and I find it crazy that I even have to mention this, the main character has morals and is an objectively 'good' person.
P.S. The "Kingdom Building" and “Space Opera” tags aren’t there for nothing. :)
If you could turn back the clock and fix all the mistakes you ever made, would you?
For Micheal Care, a swordsman that could only be considered a middling warrior in Humanity's Last Army, the answer is simple.
Yes. A million times yes.
Humanity has fallen, killed by stronger races of beings after being warped away to a new reality, the mystical 7 Layers.
Humanity's goal had been simple. Make it through all 7 Layers and reach Heaven.
Micheal Care's memories have been transported back into his past self thanks to a magical Artifact he found by chance.
He is no chosen savior. He is no divinely picked hero.
Can he change the future? Can he catch up to the mightiest warriors of humanity and surpass them?
Read on and find out.
A teenager struggling after the death of his best friend finds himself in a fantasy world - one which seems to be an amalgamation of every Dungeons and Dragons campaign they ever played together. Now he's stuck trying to find the answers to why he's there and what this world is trying to say. The most terrifying answer might be that this world is an expression of the person he was back on Earth.
The most complete version of this is posted on Archive of Our Own. Chapters will be posted here at roughly 13 hour intervals (which will rotate timezones) for the next two or three months until it's been caught up to current.
Hadica was built around one of five Towers, an infinite structure filled with floors of monsters, magic, and treasures that the city plunders like clockwork. Most of the city, at least. Growing up in Westhill, Micah's family abstained from all of their Tower's bounties. He became an [Alchemist] at an age younger than most and just wanted to level in peace, but soon ran out of mundane ingredients to brew into potions. Ryan is a budding [Fighter] with the strange ability to mimic beasts, including monsters, but he doesn't understand it or even himself. After a Tower climb goes horribly wrong, their lives and the world around them begin to change as they try to figure out who they want to be.
The Salamanders is a slow-paced story about characters growing up in and exploring a fantasy setting. It updates every Tuesday. Please mind the tags.
Blue mages learn skills from beasts. This is the story of one fortunate enough to be taken in by dragons.

What young boy doesn't crave adventure? What young man doesn't wish to be a superhero?
But time marches on, and life grows dull with responsibility. Is it any wonder that old dreams are forgotten?
Welcome to The Law of Averages: In which a man is dragged solidly out of his comfort zone. Be careful what you wish for, you never know when it will come true.
This story follows Daniel Newman as he adjusts to a strange new world. One where superpowers are for sale, where heroics are frowned upon, and where life is constantly defying Daniel's expectations. Dan always thought that he was destined to be normal, but one world's normal is another world's special.

Overnight, Adrian's life changes bordering on apocalyptic levels of insanity. His calm yet sad life as a fat antisocial sociopath comes to a screeching halt as he has an intervention with... gods? But why!? All I did was make some character for an obviously bootlegged game! Why is this happening to me?
I have to level up and prepare for some cataclysm? That hilariously outrageous background I gave my character came to reality? And my... you... you bastards made me into a girl!!! AAAHHHHHHHH!!!
How will the borderline Adrian... I mean, Elizabeth fare, now that she has to live through a game like existence. Will her ever depressed, sad excuse for a personality ever develop? Probably not... (But hey, I'll do my best to make this novel, not suck; fam-lit-squad-bros~)
When given a chance to join one of the top guilds of the VRMMO Otherworld Winston jumps at the chance.
However, he soon finds out that when they hired him as a guild farmer they weren't talking about killing goblins.
Forced into working fields for the next three months Winston decides to make the most of it.
Watch as he becomes the greatest farmer in Otherworld.
AN: I update once a week in the 3-5k word range.
This is a Spin-off of my Kill 10 Rats story. It takes place 3 years after the launch of the game, with a completly diffrent charater. This book focuses more on guilds, economy, and crafting than on adventure and epic conspiracies like the other book.
Sorry about the formating on all the system messages. The first site I had this posted on doesn't have as good of formating tools, so everything is just in brakets. I'll try to pretty everything up as time goes on.
By the will of unknown deities, Clyde is swiped from Earth and tossed into an anime world. He’s the declared the Stone aka main character. One day, he must kill the Viper, the antagonist. Too bad things aren’t exactly as black and white as that. The Stone is something much more…
This world and its inhabitants are real. It’s another dimension with a lot to explore.
This is the story of a young man’s evolution from college boy of Earth to godhood and beyond. The challenges stand ahead of him: demons, monster girls, crazy yanderes, even a girl with maxed charisma. He never thought he’d ever see a magical girl…
A story of comedy, action, and going from weak to completely unstoppable. He is the system disruptor…
In a world where tropes are present, anime girls falling in love so easily, and city-wide issues intertwining with the main mission, Clyde must level up power and his mentality, RPG-style. He can no longer be that earthling. He will learn… whether he likes it or not.
Someone who breaks systems…Feared by the gods…
~A lover of character development...

Bonus: Volume 2's description:
The story continues, following the events of its predecessor.
In the anime world, Satovia, Clyde still battles the anime tropes, but no longer dances at the fingertips of the watchers. However, his friends have real issues, problems that intertwine with his own mission. Casting away selfishness, he finds himself awakening his real power.
The Anime Trope System volume 2 brings with it, humor, anime tropes and… yanderes, references, perverseness, and a lot of character development.
So, let’s level up and accidentally capture the hearts of anime girls while at it…
Volume 3's description.
The Anime Trope System is back in a 3rd action-packed, humor-packed, adventure in Satovia. Clyde’s next threat comes in the form of a classmate. While her descent occurs, the young man must deal with hornets (the monster girl kind), prepare to meet up with vampires, and even depose Alice’s father, the demon lord, once and for all.
December’s volume will make you wish to be a part of Clyde’s party. His evolution from college boy to leader still has a way to go. But…how long will the gods stand by while a new rival rapidly grows.?
Volume 4's description.
It's festival time! All would be perfect, fun, competitive. Well, try telling the vampires not to crash the damn party.
January's volume arrives, a fourth book containing Clyde and his amazing party, humor and ass-kicking, happy and sad moments.
While Clyde continues to strengthen himself so that he wouldn't die to the Viper, figures and organizations begin to move in the background.
Join again to accidentally capture more anime girl hearts and combat those tropes...
Volume 5's description:
Ah, peace! Exams, a tiny break from the fighting, relaxation. Yeah, right. First of all, who left a certain potion in the fridge! Second, what will it take to get some common sense into the team ninja’s head. Clyde would like to know. Third, it is time to face a threat that has lurked in the city since volume 1…
Clyde and his party is back in February’s issue, ready to dish out some fun in Satovia.
Welcome to the fifth volume—and more anime shenanigans…
A questline mentioned in the very early volumes has finally pulled Clyde's interest. Niyoto. However, it isn't some side quest or filler. In this city, things will get very interesting. From being introduced to a quite frightening faction that claim to fight for the good of humanity, crazy cultists, a demon lord with a rather...different personality, the sixth volume comes in strong.
Clyde and his party is back in March's issue to take a step toward the ultimate goal of being strong enough to defeat the Viper.
And the anime tropes continue to show themselves. Do you believe in the heart of the cards?
