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.

DCO- Dungeon Core Online

DCO- Dungeon Core Online

Original Adventure Comedy Fantasy LitRPG Sci-fi Virtual Reality Portal Fantasy / Isekai Reader interactive School Life Male Lead Secret Identity Magic Strategy GameLit Dungeon

James hates his real life. He spends his days being bullied in school, and at home he simply reads and plays games. The only thing he has to look forward to is immersion. When he is immersed in the virtual world he can be whatever, whoever, he wants: He can escape the world that has thrown him away.

As such, when a new game, Dungeon Core Online, comes out, James is excited to play. He immerses himself as soon as he can, but when he is set to create his character he is instead offered a different choice. Now, James is the Dungeon Core and he suddenly finds himself wielding more power, with more options, than he's ever had before. The only downside... there are people in the real world who do anything, even kill, to gain the power of a Dungeon Core in the virtual world.

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.

Hello guys, I tried changing the sypnosis as one of the reader's wanted. But I don't have any talent in writing one so, I hope this time would be good.

MMO Earth - The Culling

Original Action Adventure Fantasy LitRPG Sci-fi Male Lead Magic Profanity Gore GameLit Post Apocalyptic

Earth becomes the full immersion experience litRPG readers fantasize about, but at what cost? 

Figuring out how to cast spells without the luxury of a controller or keyboard was the least of Garath's worries when The Culling got underway. Though some elements of the new interface were familiar to the lifelong gamer, there was a lot he'd have to learn the hard way.

What exactly did The Culling have in store for mankind? What would loot be like on this new Earth? And if this was supposed to be like an MMO, where were all the god damn hot elves??

Follow Garath as his mismatched group of friends and neighbors try to survive the twenty-four hour Event.

Wazu was an ordinary townsman who, because of circumstances, ran away from his home and got trapped in The Mountain.

He left behind his parents and little sister because of an unfortunate series of events and an over reaction which he regrets more than anything in his life.

 

After 2 years he decided to come down from The Mountain, his past regrets driving him, his hope laying on the rapid change of events he had learned of.

 

But, he had many misunderstandings about the mountain before he panicked and ran there, after he came back, he learned that he had changed more than he could have possibly imagined.

 

He wished to see his family again, but because of the failure of a hero, his home had been destroyed.

 

Upon learning this, he swore revenge on the hero, on the demon god, and swore to kill any who stood in his way.

 

Never again will he run, never again will he panic.

This is my re-write/re-design of an alright book. I liked the premise but couldn't stand the MC and a lot of the characters, so I am trying to make it writable. Warning in advance, I change the MC and a large portion of the tone of the story. MC is no longer an insuferable crying pussy, and he doesn't run at the drop of a hat, but this does mean that making the setting work a lot more difficult lol.

Any opinions and reviews, good or bad, are very welcome.

The Abyssal Dungeon

Original Adventure Fantasy LitRPG Reader interactive Slice of Life Male Lead Female Lead Strong Lead Multiple Lead Characters Non-Human lead Magic Anti-Hero Lead Gore High Fantasy Dungeon

The world of Vol, a huge, bountiful plane where the only constant is life, in its many, many forms. One such form is a dungeon core, a peculiar little gemstone, and the focus of our attention. Watch as this otherwise unremarkable gem awakens in one of the most resplendant places in Vol, an aptly named Mana Reef, and how it turns its simple hole in the ocean floor into something truly unique, all while the rest of the world is forced to deal with its growth.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is my first venture into writing for fun, and I'm hoping to keep this running until I run out of juice. With that said, I very much enjoy dungeon core novels, and wanted to do one a bit outside the norm. Hope you enjoy!

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.

Far Strider

Far Strider

Fan Fiction Action Adventure Fantasy Sci-fi Martial Arts Male Lead Strong Lead Magic Strategy Profanity Gore Traumatising content Fan Fiction

A college student finds himself transported into a strange land with burgeoning magical powers, and is taken in by Ned Stark. Will he sink or swim in this medieval society, and will he ever get home?

======================

OC-insert without knowledge of Game of Thrones, new planeswalker. Slow power ramp.

Second crossover: Star Wars (around chapter 39).

=======================

As a note, I started this as a speed writing challenge to myself.  The challenge was successful, and I managed 100,000+ words (as well as some character sheets in excel and such) over 10.5 days.  Then I had to stop and let my hands recover from their burgeoning carpal tunnel syndrome. The story currently stands at around 150,000 words (or ~550 RRL pages) over 54 chapters; expect a chapter a day until I've caught up with the backlog.

The focus of this story was not quality writing, and that hasn't changed.  I mostly use it as my semi-guilty "I need to write something, but am not focused enough to write something good" story.  Expect self-indulgent writing in general, and a bit of OP (or, well, more than just a bit if we're being honest), especially later in the story as the protagonist matures into a more full-blown Planeswalker.

But if you're looking for something with a power-ramping protagonist romping around the place, something you'd be a bit embarrassed to admit liking (I know I am) but like anyways (and come on, this is RRL, so that probably describes just about everyone here who actually has shame), then this may be a nice bit of mental junk food for you.

Ah, the world, the multi-universe made of perfect cycles. Cycles, which the only purpose is to purify soul – release it from the burden of its memories and experience, the process, that would let the soul be reincarnated again, to experience new life.

The world is being born, it is being populated by souls, the smaller and bigger, the world would die and be reshaped anew. In a cycle. A never-ending process.

Since the dawn of time, since the countless cycles, the pool of soul was closed, a soul that died could be reincarnated only within a System of its Administrator. Until now.

Join us in our story of a single soul which because of certain events could no longer be reincarnated in its original world – being forced to be transferred into Universe ruled another Administrator – another God in world full of Fantasy and Magic, watch him casting aside his previous restriction and try living his life to the fullest… thought someone, somewhere, may have different plans for this weird, weird soul.

Ps. There are game elements here

 

 

Disclaimers and warnings:

-          This story uses clichés. Like, lots of it.

-          I am not a native English speaker, so my grammar may not be best (It actually is pretty horrible). First 80 or so chapters are a true butchery for eyes and I admit it. Shouldn’t I correct them then? I should. Why am I not doing it? Who knows. Maybe one day I will.

-          This story is pretty much an experiment. I try different perspectives, different styles, I can make some random Deus-ex-machina if I would consider that I made mistake in the story and decide to change it.

-          This story is written for pure fun, if you expect some mind-blowing plots and conspiracy of top-level authors – then you will be most likely disappointed.

-          Easter eggs. Easters eggs everywhere. Every now and then you will be able to spot single events, characters and lines of text that belong in different stories/mangas/movies/books and such. Of course, they do not belong to me but to the owners, though I am not listing them – I am sorry, but if you need to be told from where line comes, we won’t be friends.

-          And finally. The story is written for you and WITH YOU. If you have any suggestions, events, characters, skills, class… ANYTHING… you wish to see, please – tell me. In best case scenario I would use them, in worse – I would just not implement them, so what do you lose?

Player Killer

Player Killer

Original Action Adventure Fantasy LitRPG Psychological Male Lead Magic Profanity Gore GameLit

In the world of New Dawn, the citizens seem to be suffering a divine punishment of some sort.

The monsters that plague them are worse then devils, demons, or depraved criminals.

The devils have their own twisted morality, demons are not intrinsically bad—they're just above humans in the food chain—and depraved criminals can at least be killed.

The undying, capricious monsters kill anything and everything, devouring all in their sights like a swarm of locusts. What's more, the lords and kings who should be protecting them seem to be working with these monsters.

When all seems lost, it falls to a young boy to save his people from these monsters… from the players.

In the players' eyes, he is a hidden boss—possibly even the final boss!

In the developers' eyes… what the heck is this bug?!

Schedule: Story has been completed.

Book One is available free on Amazon and EPUB.

Books Two to Five are out now. Final Book out soon.

 

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.

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.

Reincarnated as a Troll in a Dark Fantasy World

Reincarnated as a Troll in a Dark Fantasy World

Original Adventure Fantasy LitRPG Reincarnation Supernatural Male Lead Strong Lead Non-Human lead Magic Anti-Hero Lead Gore

 A troll wakes up in the "forest of beginning" of a fantasy world with only faint memories of his past human life and unable to speak. The human realm will spare no expense to bring down this monstruous threat. While clinging to his humanity, the troll must use his cunning and modern knowledge to survive and evade the hunters.

 

It is a dark age in a world of swords and magic, ruled by superstition and iron-clad rules. Tradition and conformity are the absolute cornerstones of society. There is no calendar, people count time by seasons, or days. Death, famine and vicious monsters are everywhere. People clutch in their communities, afraid of what is outside.  Here and there, a Hero rises, his tale brief like a shooting star.

 

Powerful monsters that drift too close to human's realm must be eradicated at any cost, or society might crumble. The Troll comitted this sin.

 

This "isekai' LitRPG novel is an experiment in writing. We commit to the "Adventure" and "Fantasy" genres, but it might have comedy, romance, and both dark and light tones.

 

Some events in this novel are drawn from random encounter generators and others are decided on a die roll just like a tabletop RPG. Things take a unpredictable tone!

 

Non constructive / offensive comments may be deleted without previous warning.

 

Daily Updates: One each monday through friday, two on saturday and sunday.

 

As of september, the updates will be every even-numbered day.

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.

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.
