Block Dungeon

Block Dungeon
by RobertKeene
HIATUS
310 pages

The world of Sleyn is a little doomed planet made of blocks. Its World Core is under assault from a corrupting force known as the Ostrum, and it seems unstoppable.

As a last-ditch effort, the World Core forcespawns a bunch of Dungeon Cores so they can level up and push back the Ostrum. So far, all have failed.



This fic is a dungeon core set in the CoreVerse. You do not have to read any other CoreVerse book to enjoy this. It is heavily inspired by vanilla Minecraft and Terraria, with a healthy sprinkling of mod influence, too. PG-13 ish, with a sprinkling of profanity and some violence, but the descriptions are pretty tame.

This novel is a mixture of Tower Defense and Sandbox. The world-building works similar to Roguelike titles, as in the protagonist unlocks new tiles and creatures over time, while enemies get increasingly stronger.

If you want to see your idea for a tile, creature, or any mechanic make it into the novel, leave a comment on the newest chapter! I'd be more than happy to include any fan suggestions! ^^

[participant in the Royal Road Writathon challenge]

Doctor Abraham Henry Zolnikov has spent the last seven years isolated in his orbital laboratory, watching the Earth below descend into chaos. A biological virus combined with a nanite programming virus have combined to create flesh eating, mindless abominations that hunt all other living things for food. Human civilization fell in a matter of weeks. There has been no indication of any living survivors on Earth's surface for over two years. As far as he knows, he is the last living human in the entire solar system.

Then one day the power begins to fail on the space station he’s called home for over a decade. Stepping outside the lab will be risky. But remaining means certain death. The good doctor is a curious man, however. If he manages to survive, who knows what hidden secrets he will discover?

My story begins when my dead grandfather shows up at my front door. He introduces me to a crazy hidden world, insane rituals, and gods of madness. Within our blood dwells the ancient ancestry of one of these gods, and it has ordained that I be sent to another version of Earth to be the first to spread its influence there. The dark knowledge I receive in return is as awesome as it is taboo. But, this power comes with consequences, ones that lead to the people of this new world not taking as kindly to me as I would have hoped.

A dungeon core, accidentally transported from its world and stranded on Earth.

Dean, a young Australian man who stumbles across it and has his life changed forever.

With the core now residing inside him, Dean marvels at the amazing abilities he has gained.

Steamforged Sorcery [A Steampunk LitRPG]

Steamforged Sorcery [A (...)
by Actus
STUB
566 pages

This is a fantasy story in a steampunk setting, not a sci-fi.

The Great War ravaged the face of the earth many years ago. In the years that passed, the world rebuilt, mixing machinery and magic to form something new. Great blimps took to the sky, belching steam and smoke as metal cities sprouted like weeds below.

Angel, a talented mage, scours the desert endlessly in search of lost knowledge. When it unexpectedly falls into his hands, he quickly comes to realize that the world is far larger – and far more deadly – than he ever could have predicted. But no amount of danger is going to keep Angel from seeking out greater strength and traveling the world, claiming all the greatest treasure that it has to offer.

To most, the desert is a dangerous threat to be feared. To Angel, it’s a land of opportunity, waiting to be exploited.


Steamforged Sorcery is, as the title suggests, a LitRPG Steampunk story with heavy focus on magic and scenery. The main character starts out relatively strong (but far from overpowered) but will eventually grow in strength to incredible levels. It is moderately paced and does not progress at ridiculous speeds. 

Release Schedule: 1,500 words daily Monday-Friday
