Life of Numbers

Life of Numbers

Original Action Adventure Fantasy LitRPG Contemporary Supernatural Male Lead Gore Traumatising content Post Apocalyptic

Everything in life can be measured, and everything in life is measured. Each person who has ever lived has five Numbers on their arm, defining the five primary attributes of that person. Throughout someone's life, these will increase with time and effort, and all of society revolves around these Numbers.

What happens when this natural system of Numbers, the basis of all of society for all of history...changes? 

 

My first fiction, so I appreciate all reviews and feedback!

Atros Imperium

Original Action Adventure Fantasy Romance Harem Supernatural Magic

Anton Thorn died in an incident of his own creation, his body torn and shredded to pieces.

Yet death and eternal rest did not await him. Gods, from another world, took his soul along many others to their world to fight an overwhelming and impossible foe.

By chance and oversight his soul was missed by the gods, his soul destined to remain in limbo and torment for all eterinity. A few weak and desperate gods took a chance with him and brought him through to their world.

Now sent far away from the battle, in his original body, to a small village in the husk of a dead kingdom. It is now up to him to restore the Kingdom and fight off anything that would threaten him or those he loves; be they human, beast, monster or hero.

The Misplaced Dungeon

The Misplaced Dungeon

Original Fantasy Non-Human lead

The gods on four worlds were in trouble, or rather the clique that had taken over those worlds development and refused to listen to the established but less powerful gods already in power were in trouble. Their mismanagement was causing four previously lush and pleasant worlds to become harsh and inhospitable.

So taking another leaf out of world building 301 they arbitrarily decided to seed the worlds in question with new dungeons they could control or at least influence.

One fine day Azurea, self declared Goddess of dungeons on those four worlds discovered a fascinating world; it was teeming with life, literally overburdened with teeming billions of sophonts. Even better in her view many were atheists and due to the rapidly expanding population many of those were brand new souls.

So without further ado she soulnapped one hundred of them for her cliques experiment.

This is the story of one of the randomly selected beings, a sixteen year old girl with anger management issues, in fact Mary Silvestre has been diagnosed a borderline psychopath by a lazy school system.

Bitter

Bitter

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: 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 Ascendant

The Ascendant

Original Action Adventure Fantasy LitRPG Mystery Reincarnation Portal Fantasy / Isekai Male Lead Multiple Lead Characters Non-Human lead Magic Strategy Grimdark GameLit Steampunk Dungeon Mythos

The Trench was no place for a picnic. Treacherous cliffs, forty-foot tidal waves, bloodthirsty bunnies, and occasionally, the great serpent goddess Akaah surfaced to devour your very soul, if given a chance.

In this world of the Marked and the oppressed, for the courageous willing to undertake the Trials, hundreds of potential marks granted power. For the wise, infinite combinations promised synergy that would further multiply their effects.

Mark O. Butcher's bitter life winked out on Earth, but sparked in another, perhaps more brutal world. He must stab, trap, bite and even cook his way up the ladder of Ascendancy. Only then, would he have the power to undo the injustice of a thousand years.

Earth is a fairly small place, but it's all Bath has. It's the only home he's ever known for all of his 500-or-so-million years of life. One day, Bath realized his treasured Earth was being drawn into the next mass extinction ahead of schedule. So, fascinated by the humans and their quick rise to power (after all, setting off a mass extinction is a pretty sizable achievement), what's a nearly all-powerful, somewhat bored, morally ambiguous, savagely violent, shapeshifting alien entity to do other than assume the form of a human and do some front-line investigating?

Little did Bath know he would soon stumble upon a mysterious human organization with a gate leading to planets eons away. And that's just the beginning...

A story with aliens, intergalactic space travel, mind powers, and an abundance of adventure!


Author's note:

OFF HIATUS!

Hello and thank you for reading! Constructive criticism and grammar-policing are both appreciated.

Parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 are complete at 1271 pages! Part 7 is in progress!

If you've ever read any other web serials, you might've noticed that authors get better with time (that is, their art or writing improves). Wutosama of Metaworld Chronicles noted that the first 20 chaps are always a mess.

This is also the case with Apex Predator. The first two parts (ranging just under 30 chapters, or 161 pages) are absolutely subpar. While I have edited them as of 7-10-18, they require a rewrite, which is currently in the works but not complete.

For a sample that gives insight into what the latter ~80% of the story's writing style is like, check out chapter 56.

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.

The Red Lands

Starting alone from the bottom can be such a pain.

A story of being transferred to a new world.

If you are looking for a shocking OP character, this is not him.

If you are looking for a young master with abundant wealth this is certainly not it.

Maybe a poor slum child with a hidden past and bloodline. Poor yes, dirt poor. Full stop.

Incredible knowledge. Aside from some skills in business, nothing.

This is just a tale of an average individual trying to make the best of what he has.

An average human salary-man was transmigrated into the body of a boy from the slums. What made it worse was that it was a completely different world. Armed with only basic knowledge from his past life and nearly nothing from his present, he strives to survive.

Curiosity can become a deadly driving force for any human being. It all depends on who is wielding it.

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!

The Perks of Immortality

The Perks of Immortality

After living decades and dying hundreds of times, Kegan has learned that he has finally passed some test that the cruel spirit had given him. Now, Kegan has the ability to gain “perks” that can make his life much easier. He is looking forward to finally having an easy life with the new perks he has earned.


Rules to keep me honest for the perk system:

Spoiler: Spoiler

I want to avoid one of the pitfalls I see for other LitRPG stories where the game elements barely relate to the story, or offer very little information. If people are skipping over and not reading the perks then I'm doing things wrong. So I promise to try and make the perks interesting, sometimes humorous, informative, and relevant to the story.
