Summon Imp!

Summon Imp!
by Oskatat
ONGOING
86 pages

In the world where demons live.

The Swarm is closing in and the prey is panicking! The hunt-leader calls for the attack and my powerful leg muscles fire to launch myself at the beast! Suddenly things start to slow down. Colors start to blur into one another and all I can think is "Shit, not this again!"

I hate being summoned. 

Join a little demon as he gets summoned again and again from his own world to other worlds in order to, usually, die for others in strange and exciting places, sometimes repeatedly and in grueling ways. At least the rewards are nice.

First though, he'll have to grow a bit.

Features: From very weak to quite weak to not quite that weak to maybe, someday, strong. No sudden evolutions, no system, growing up the hard way. Uncaring MC. It's a demon, no 'power of friendship' is going to change that. Slow build-up, I'm working on my writing skills and see no reason to rush

Being born is hard.

Being reborn is even harder.

But being reborn as a baby dinosaur in a world where everything wants to kill you, skin you, and suck the marrow from your bones? That's the hardest.

At least the magical blue boxes say I can evolve, though?

[Full realm assimilation will be completed in a few million years give or take and then the Gates will stop appearing, use them while you can. The next War of the Gods is scheduled to start in about 15 billion years, practice hard until then.]
[See ya around!]
With that simple farewell, the world changed forever.

Kira Hawthorne was just another teenage girl until the day a 'god' told the world their 'realm' was getting assimilated since they lost some War no one on Earth even knew about.

Science is replaced with magic, a System is installed on the whim of a very old and capricious god, and one teenage girl embarks on a journey in a once familiar world turned foreign... And very hostile.

Heart of Cultivation

Heart of Cultivation

Jian was a prodigy, at least until he discovered that his path of cultivation had hit a dead end almost as soon as it began. That was all years ago, though. He has long since resigned himself to his fate and prepared himself for a dull, ordinary, but happy life. Stunted cultivation or no, he's clever enough to carve out his own comfortable niche.

Unfortunately, not all of the matters from his past have been settled. When a reckless mistake threatens to cost him everything, Jian will have to prove that he's desperate enough to rise to the occasion. Or that he's capable of avoiding the consequences.

This is an affectionate reconstruction of the xianxia genre. I will be deploying the tropes from the genre that I enjoy in a framework that I think makes sense. The story updates on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and sometimes other days.

For thousands of years, the Hunters Guild has been exploring Yggdrasil's many Verses looking for safe worlds for humanity to colonise. They've been fighting Dread Beasts, dealing with Primordials and hiding from the eldritch entities out to devour all life. 

Growing up, Kat dreamt of Magehood. She was sure her mother, Greypic's best apothecary woman and brewer would have little trouble getting her a seat in the Academy in the capital. Everything was set when she turned sixteen. She was of age, and sure of her talent. Then a brewing accident took her mother and left the Aether Channels in her arms warped. 

Now, Kat is struggling to make ends meet. She's doing whatever it takes to stay above the poverty line and save enough for the Hunters Guild license and a Codex.

Will their resources help Kaitlyn Fairleaf fix her scarred arms? Or will she die crippled and alone?

Better Than Life

Better Than Life
by Foolish Luke
HIATUS
129 pages

By the 23rd century, Earth has long since gone to shit, climate change, air pollution, chronic overpopulation and mass unemployment has taken its toll on its struggling populace.

For the teeming masses of humanity, life is bleak, there are no options, prospects or possibilities beyond winning one of the few coveted tickets on the government-administered lottery that promises the winner the chance at a job servicing the whims the worlds uber-rich. With such a grim reality, escapism is rife among the underclasses, and of all the chemical and virtual avenues available, BTL's are king.    

Better Than Life users are all addicts, addicts with remarkably short lifespans, perpetually strung out between their more fulfilling virtual lives, they inevitably prioritise pursuing virtual fulfilment over trivial pursuits such as food, shelter and water,  racking up vast debts on the black market in order to finance their prized BTL sticks and their recovery after hard often lethal comedowns.

This is the world that Frank has grown up in, abandoned by his parents, he has lived his entire life on welfare, educated by a smattering of state sponsored infomercials and an archived copy of the internet from centuries past.

When the news arrives that he has been rejected for the 20th time for a lottery ticket, Frank decides that he has had enough of waiting and that it's time to live his life, regardless of how real the reality.

Upon entering the virtual world contained within the BTL drive he quickly finds that it is not the utopian paradise promised to him by the BTL dealer, instead, he finds himself surrounded by danger, magic and monsters as he tries his best to survive in a surprisingly real game world that is not what it seems.

No motivation left to strive.

The mundanity of modern life was enough.

A new life and a magical world to explore.

For Joshua Still, Skills were the lifeblood of his business. He wanted to understand them, collect many of them, and teach a few of them. Which was a problem because while his profession of a Skill Trainer was perfectly legal, it was frowned upon by most of the kingdom. After all, it wouldn't do for a non-tailor to teach Tailoring. Or, so says the Tailors Guild.

The same could be said by the Blacksmiths, the Bakers, the Butchers, the Candlestick Makers, the Mages, and every other Guild with enough money and clout to complain. But still, Skill Trainers provide a valuable service, and so he has managed to start his business and keep it under the table. To a degree. With many a bribe. But his quiet anonymous life of research, practice, and training was about to change. When the Baron demands you pay him a visit, you have little choice.

Jayke Cipher was, to his limited knowledge, one of the last people alive.

The apocalypse was not one that came slowly. When it struck Earth, it came swiftly. The monstrosities that roamed the outside world became an unavoidable hobby of Jayke's. Working from within a heavily defended compound, surveillance cameras and a plethora of subject material only cultivated an interest in strange creatures.

Survival became lonely. Sanity was kept by indulging offhand desires, fulfilling flights of fancy when reasonable. 

When the compound is breached and all other options exhausted his only option becomes the pod. A mysterious capsule intended for virtual reality. Its producer, in light of the apocalypse, had released early. Months back he had ignored the last news broadcast regarding the pod and its promises.

He knew it only as suicide. But better that than being eaten alive.
