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.

John Thomson is a regular college student, the kind of average person you cross on the street every day.
Or at least that’s what most people assume, because he’s far from what’s considered “normal”.
After all, a normal person isn’t regularly dragged into life-threatening tribulations involving fantastic creatures, otherworldly beings and people with logic-defying superpowers. Not to mention that he seems to have a knack for sticking his nose into the nefarious plans of secret societies and ancient cults.
But John’s life wasn’t always such a mess: Everything began when he accidentally invented a way to rewind time…
Weekly Schedule: At least a ~3.5k words chapter every Wednesday and Sunday.
Genesis. It is the end of countless stories. The end of thousands of universes, billions of planets, and trillions of lives. But what is taken may also be given, as shown in the story of Cael King. A young man of Earth, knowing only a life of study and work in the relentless and endless pursuit of satisfaction. This is the origin of his story.
Inspired by the system used in The Legend of Randid.ly Ghosthound. The system is an homage but the characters, world, and story are unique. I will post as often as I can and, given that I am not starting work until July, that should be pretty frequently. If you have any suggestions or comments please feel free to leave them as this is my first story and I'd love to improve both it and my writing style.
Fang is a simple cat.
Fang likes napping in the sun.
Fang does not like being called Chairman Meow.
Fang likes his belly being scratched for precisely 17.329 seconds.
Fang does not like being punted between dimensions.
Fang likes hunting and killing defenseless wildlife.
Fang does not like mysterious blue boxes that appear out of thin air.
Fang is having a Very Bad Day.
A few things to note:
Fang is a cat soul in a cat body, and that's not going to change any time soon. No cat girl evolution or possessed puppet or any of that.
The slice of life tag is there for a reason. There is no epic tale here, only a cat doing cat things in a (hopefully) interesting setting.
The game elements are a pretty light, mostly there for flavor, so don't expect a huge amount of crunch.
Nature is cruel, and cats are crueler than most.
(Cover by Amber Rimkus)
A young man who's lived his everyday life with bitter pessimism suddenly gets his world turned upside down by what he calls, """"The world's most untimely apocalypse"""". Despite all the new dangers that came with this unexpected situation, he has so far managed to avoid death, ruin and whatever else the world decided to throw at him. Unexpected development after unexpected development, danger after danger, situation after situation, will he survive this **game** of life and death?
I will be posting a chapter a week. (No chapter this week 2/11/17)
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.

Death and Reincarnation.
Kuroe Makoto, the tomboyish ace of her high school track and field club, never spared a thought for these things before. However, when she falls asleep in her Tokyo home after an exhausting marathon and wakes up in a fantasy world, those concepts become her reality. And unlike in the common light novel setting, she isn't reincarnated as the naturally good-looking and talented human hero who gathers a harem effortlessly.
In fact, she isn't reincarnated as a human at all. She is reborn as 'Chaos', child of the demon queen and heir to a kingdom at war with humanity.
Maou Shoujo Magical Chaos puts the Japanese high school girl in a tentacle monster, in this strange tale of a sound human mind possessing a horrifying creature's body.
Join Chaos on her oftentimes humorous but also perilous journey through a world of sword and sorcery, as she discovers a newfound appetite for life, terror, and demi-human girls.
This story features just yuri, as the female protagonist only has interest in other females.
Current Release Schedule: One to two chapters every week. Expect an announcement if I can't keep to that.
Pledge of Completion: With the release of the ebook on Amazon, I pledge that this series will never be dropped, and see completion.
Standalone spin-off featuring Senka: Red Mantis and Avenger Doll
Cover art by Whisper.
Author: In the vast and boundless continent Cangtu, there were ancient sects governing the Ten Old Domains, unworldly immortal clans beyond the Blue Density, and primordial demon gods dominating the dark abyss that together created an unknown number of brilliant chapters over the long course of the history.
In this very world, there was a boy, named Lin Xun, who embarked on his journey to the pinnacle of strength alone through cultivation and spiritual tattoo inscribing.
Translator: Escaping alone from the Mine Prison where he had been living since his adoption, Lin Xun knew nothing about his identity but the little information his adopter, Master Lu, had told him. With two ancient spiritual tools Master Lu gave to him before the destruction of the Mine Prison, Lin Xun started his journey to Ziyao Empire, where he is supposed to find out the truth of his lost Spiritual Vessel and the person who slaughtered his family, leaving him orphaned.
Will he be able to unlock the mysteries of the two magic treasures, unveil the secrets of his identity and create a legend of his own? Read all of updated chapters on Flying-Lines.
Nel Grinig could not wait for his class to finally be decided. "Class Day" is held at the beginning of each new year, with anyone who is eighteen receiving their class for the first time. The theory is that your class is granted to you by the Eight, the magical Gods of planet Iorin. People believe that they are also the ones to thank for the status screens, status messages, the the unwritten laws of Iorin that are enforced through magic
Nel trained his whole life to become a dual wielding warrior. He grew up in a poor village and knew he was meant for more. To become rich and take care of his mother, to help people in need, and to become a powerful adventurer.
Then the Old One got involved, and like most times you try to plan your life out, it went slightly different than he expected.
This will be a crunchy LitRPG story, written by someone who literally has never wrote a book in his life. LOTS of edits will be made, by me, friends, fiance, readers, you name it. My grammar is poor at best, I will get that out of the way now. A DnD DM, LitRPG lover, I had a story I wanted to write, and I look forward to sharing and learning from everyone that follows along with Nel’s journey.
When a down on his luck machine shop owner ends up coming into possession of a rundown suit of power-armor, he sees an opportunity to make some quick cash.
Unfortunately for him, the world of Capes is not one that you may enter and leave at will.
What should have been a quick sale to pay off his debts quickly grows into an ongoing series of events that serve only to drag him deeper and deeper into the criminal underbelly of the city he calls home...
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!
The whole room is fully ablaze when the fire turns blue and even hotter. And I still keep my hands on the rune, ignoring the sizzling of my flesh. After a while I notice the blue, roaring flames on the other side of the window. At the edge of unconsciousness, I listen to the screams of people as they are taken by the Inferno.
If you find mistakes, pls tell, thx. I don't like mistakes.
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.

You've probably heard this sort of story before.
Once upon a time, blah blah blah a boy and a girl fell love and everything was beautiful and perfect, except for this thing called life getting in their way.
He was this cool foreign prince and she was basically perfect. Really it's a very boring run of the mill story. I'll even spoil it for you, they kill the villianness at the end.
Not the type of story I'd read personally.
So where do I fit into this?
Apparetly I'm her older twin sister and the very very lucky fiance to the foreign prince. You know, the dead villianness? Sucks I know.
Now I get to do it all over again from the beginning.
Curse my life
A prince sent into exile, without the means to fight back.
A young man trapped in an unfair world, without the status to bring about change.
Combined, they will have both means and status.
Armed with advanced knowledge from a strange world, will Prince Corco be able to cut through the injustice, regain his birthright and turn the country of his ancestors into a paradise of true peace, equality and prosperity?
"Okay, first step: Let's make some Brandy."
...that's a maybe then.
Author's note: I love the idea of kingdom-building novels and think the genre has a lot to offer, but I don't think many authors do them very well. Here is my attempt. The novel has a strong focus on politics and kingdom building, with occasional action and a bit of humor. Have fun.

I used to be a healthy, young guy with a normal life - I had a career planned in professional soccer, a girlfriend, lots of hobbies, and loads of fun. Until the accident. Which changed my life.
A few years later I had adjusted to my new reality, adjusted to being in a wheelchair, adjusted to having someone take care of me 24/7. And then the world changed. Old people and kids did not make it. And neither was I supposed to make it. But never count me out. If anything, I am tenacious.
This new world was different. People could do magic. And there were monsters.
And what about me? I had mana as well, silver mana. Which no one else seemed to have. The only problem was, I did not know what to do with it.
Until I really needed to.
Author's note: This is the rewrite of Silver Mana. The first bunch of chapters (until I will have caught up to level 2 of the dungeon) should be quite familiar to people that have read the original. There are some changes in content, but the story follows the original fairly closely for at least the first 150-200 pages. Most of the changes are in the writing, and some of the details of how things work. A few of the side characters get a bit more attention too.
Some general comments to avoid disappointment:
1. The MC likes to swear. If you object to reading the word "fuck" at least once and usually multiple times each chapter don't read the book. "Fuck" is such a great, allencompassing word... fuck that; what the fuck?; fuck me! Fuck! one word, expressing so many nuances. And, frankly, the people I know that use fuck as a swear word.. they often use it a lot.
2. If you are looking for immediate progression, rapid advancement of the story, etc.... read another book. This one takes a bit.
3. I am NOT Pirateaba (who is writing The Wandering Inn) or anyone close to that level of productivity. If you expect to read 10k words every 3 days, or even just once a week... sorry. I've got a busy life. This is for fun, I have no patreon, paypal, anything, so I write when it is fun and however much is fun. Not more. And sometimes that turns out to be a decent amount, sometimes nothing. I have another book (Marrow) so that complicated things - basically I switch between the two whenever the muse strikes me.
Meet Andrew Quirk.
Seventeen Years Old.
After an ambiguous amount of time spent in a nightmare dimension, he's finally made it back home to the human world.
Now he has to deal with figuring out the rest of his life. This means dealing with the complications brought about by his inhuman state, and his decidedly ambiguous nature. He has to deal with his toxic home situation, school, and the stresses that come with becoming a functioning member of society after what feels like a lifetime of lunancy, magic, and violence.
He may, or may not, also have to worry about having half the supernatural world gunning for him.
His take on the whole situation: "Is this one of those situations where the crime 'is' the punishment?!"
What happens when a summoned hero completes their task given by those from up above? When a summoned hero returns back to earth after having saved the world, do they still get to live a normal life?
The answer is actually yes, they usually do. They get married to the one they love, have kids, and then death takes them away.
Of course, that is only usually. There are a select few who choose not to... think the same way.
Some of them find such a life boring, dull even.
They want to taste for adventure once more, feed their drive for exploration! Power, wealth, another life, they want it all. So, what do they do? Why, they do what Quasi does...
They sell themselves to the gods.
This story will contain 2 and 3-dimensional characters.

His name is Eight. Not really, but that’s what the System decided after a slip of the tongue. One moment, he was stepping out the office door on the way home, and the next waking up on a hillside below a town wall. Oh, and the gate guard drove him off, because he thought Eight was a monster.
Life’s tough when you’re trapped in an eight-year old body on another world.
