Hello, I am writing a story called Senses Reposed, it has about 40k words at the moment and is far from over.

Here is the synopsis:

Grant, twenty years old, was tired of being a prisoner to his job, parents, and city. He had been fed to believe all of it was deserved. The thought of breaking free from his current life felt undeserved. But his ability to tolerate everything was wearing thin; he was about to crack. He began to wonder that maybe all the blame put on him wasn't entirely his fault.

A coworker told him about a small village, Lyros, where he could move. The price seemed too good to be true. Despite that foreboding feeling, he decided to leave his previous life behind. Could Lyros bring him the freedom he pursued? Or was it just another place that would take hold of him, refusing to let go?

If you enjoy mystery, low fantasy, slight horror, and battle shonen stories you might enjoy this. My inspirations for this story were Higurashi, Parasyte, and Hunter x Hunter.

Hello all! Hopefully this will get read by someone.
Anyway, I'm writing Until You Do It Right, A litRPG time loop fiction. There are very few time loop fictions out there, chief among them being Mother of Learning (with good reason), and I just hope to tell a good story that can be appreciated. It's set before/during the apocalypse, with the MC attempting to save the world from it. So far, it's been a blast to write, and I hope a fun one to read as well. Thanks for your time!

Remnants of the Dawn is an epic high fantasy saga spanning three books (all completed). Currently chapters 0-13 are posted with regular uploads of new chapters. Book one sits at 19,4785 words, 477 pages in word.

The Armies of Xanavene have declared war on the world of Silex, and march their black armies across the lands, leaving confusion and ruin in their wake. Led by the Necromancer Osric, their motives are as unknown as his origins as he cuts a swathe of terror towards Elysia, home to The Order of Dawn.
After his affair with the High Priestess is discovered, Grandmaster of The Knights of Dawn, Aichlan, is sent to the fort of Arlien as punishment. His rank in The Order of Dawn prevents a public sentencing, but it is the hope of the Cardinals that he will perish when Xanavene inevitably attacks. Faced with the insurmountable task of defeating an army the likes of which hadn’t been seen in over three millennia, Aichlan is given a coveted second chance to save the Priestess and put an end to Osric’s mad ploy.

Aided by the remnants of fallen kingdoms, he must gather an army to combat the Xanavien horde, as well as the horrors he’s unleashed. Horrors not seen on the planet since the last time a doomed mortal attempted to wage war on the heavens.


The story is about loss and revenge, but also examines the concepts of good and evil, with themes around PTSD and the horrors of war. Who decides what is "the greater good"? How far is too far for one's ideals? Do the ends truely justify the means? Can you truely consider yourself the hero if fighting for an oppressive status quo?

Dragan Hadrien is a low-level administrator in the Supremacy, the most powerful civilization in the galaxy. In the Supremacy, 'might makes right' is written into law - if you're strong enough to take something, it's yours. With the mysterious power of Aether, a light of the mind that grants abilities unimaginable, one can uncover lost knowledge, crown themselves a king, or even seek a position above that...

For Dragan, however, his primary concern is getting a promotion and taking it easy for the rest of his days - and he's well on his way to doing that, until he finds himself snatched by a gang of dissidents and dragged into the kind of dangerous adventure he hates more than anything else.

With the barest knowledge of Aether and combat, can Dragan survive in a galaxy quickly growing drunk with war?

Chapter 1:
When you stare into the abyss, the abyss stares right back at you, K once said to me. I asked her what the stare of the abyss was like, but she never answered, and I didn’t think about it further. Until now.

Thriller with subtle supernatural elements and some dark romance. Takes place in Japan. Take a look and let me know what you think about it..:)

You can get creative, or you can just post the description, image(if available) and your word count. But most importantly your Royal Road fiction link.

Note: This is somewhat of a first-come, first-served basis, as the earlier you reply, the more likely your description will be read first. Which is why this new thread for self-promotions is going to be monthly based(to not overflow it). At the start of the next month, we will have a new thread, and you can promote your story there again.

This is the story of a myriad group of characters who had the misfortune of being passengers on a plane that crashed in the remote mountains of a fantasy world. They now have to survive the harsh environment; find civilisation and rebuild their lives in the best way possible. 

A marine rifleman, a competition archer, a juvenile delinquent, an aspiring musician and a physics student with a love of the arcane are among the many individuals making their way in a new world of adventure.
 
The story is heavily inspired by dnd style fantasy but it isn't a true litrpg. There are progression fantasy elements where characters grow in power of time. But they can't see their character sheets or assign points to attributes or classes. 

The story is survival focused. All the characters will struggle to grow and none will become OP. But their different backgrounds will enable them to gain a role in life that will allow them to thrive within reasonable limits.
