172 pages

A young engineer with photographic memory dies after choking on a pretzel. He is reincarnated in a fantasy world as a dungeon core. Having near infinite knowledge from Earth, and infinitesimal common sense, he begins to shape his dungeon into the ultimate factory of resources. Collect all the things! Automate all the systems! Even adventurers can be farmed! And if a few world governments collapse in the process, well, it’s all for the sake of science!

This story is like if Factorio was about dungeons, played by someone with ADHD.

Warning, lots of numbers and spreadsheets. Arithmophobes beware!

Things go awry when the forces of chaos recruit a new Dungeon Master. From underpaid pseudo taxi driver to underground murder labyrinth builder, one young ladies' life is getting flip turned upside down!


I guess being a Dungeon is better than doing rideshare for a living?

Ozzy was a man of the wild. Raised in a remote village atop the world's mightiest mountain, he'd been taught to respect and revere the natural world. The realm he was born into had been there long before him, and it would remain there long after him. Sure, there was the occasional madman who threatened to destroy it, but such boasts were always empty. No one individual was actually capable of demolishing this beautiful blue-and-green ball Ozzy called home. No matter what terrible magics these villains wielded, they were incapable of causing permanent harm to the environment. Even if the planet was completely devastated, it would recover. Life would find a way to flourish, same as it always had. That was what Ozzy believed from the bottom of his heart, so he never once felt the need to save the world he loved. After all, it was never truly in danger. The world would be fine no matter what. The people were a wee bit endangered, but that was another story altogether.

However, what would happen if Ozzy suddenly found himself devoid of his beloved wilds? What would the man do if the realm he knew - one of wonder, magic, and chaos - was replaced with a man-made environment of concrete, industry, and steam? Ozzy could never imagine such a thing happening, and yet that was his new reality. After losing a fateful confrontation with a mad wizard, he and his friends found themselves transported to a strange world so thoroughly alien that every waking moment feels like a fever dream. Separated and scattered to the four corners of this land, each of these adventurers will need to adapt, survive, and overcome if they hope to reunite. They would also need to do so quickly. The sooner they are able to find one another, the sooner they can figure out a way back home and have another crack at putting an end to the villain's plans. Whether such a thing was actually possible in a world with barely any magic in it was a valid concern, but Ozzy had more immediate things to worry about. For instance, why did the air smell like a perpetual forest fire? How did ships sail through the sky as if it were water? And most importantly, was the pavement he was hurtling towards at high speed much softer than it looked?

Probably not, but a man could hope.

Mother of Magic

Mother of Magic
by TheEpicLotfi
ONGOING
301 pages

A new mother that recently hit rock bottom not long before giving birth to a child she never planned to have is whisked to a new world of magic and monsters. Her prodigious intelligence earns her a free magical skill, and though she makes great use of it, little does she know that in this new land, magic is the highest taboo imaginable, and for a good reason. She learns quickly that she will have to be the bigger monster to protect the only thing in her life worth protecting, her child, and with her particular set of skills, there's an unending tide of enemies waiting to have a piece of her.


What to expect:

An unforgiving madness-inducing magic system, secret identity shenanigans, biological magic and therefore body-horror, a barebones and unintrusive status screen system, a genius-intellect self-serving main character.

Trigger warning

Contains mentions and brief descriptions of rape.

Release Schedule

Weekly releases on Friday 5pm EST

Shold'ler has made a reality before. It was pretty messy, the physics didn't work properly, and his designs were just terrible.

This place has flawless physics, a whole set of natural laws, and the most detailed everything he's ever seen. The air moves sometimes (but not all the time), the grass has layers underneath it, and the trees sometimes have things living in them. 

All things considered... it's depressingly good. 

What's he supposed to do here?

Two Satisfactory players are sucked through their computers into their end game Characters as they enter a new drop pod, they were friends for a long time, but only called themselves by their standard gamer tag over the years, they have never met in real life......Gender switch because Satisfactory Pioneers are all female and I love the genre. There might be a little romance down the way so I selected the Sexual Content. Also if you do not know the game Satisfactory, or how mods work, it might be a bit confusing, so I do apologize if I am dropping terms you haven't heard before.  I will go for chapters around 2-4k words. Thanks you for reading, and remember: Efficiency first!

What would happen to a guy that died out of rage while in a Guild War?

What would the choice of some bored dimensional being who catches his soul in the middle of his way to the afterlife?

What would happen when the guy's addiction mixes with the Wizarding World of Harry Potter!? What chaos would that bring to the world!?
------------------------------------
Well, this was an idea I had like a week ago, and wanted to try it out on my journey to learn how to write. So, here it is. It's another fanfic, yes. Because it's easier to write.

Also, with this one, I'll probably post only during the weekends, not daily like with the Novel's Extra's Extra. Firstly because I want to finish the other one, and also because I need to research a lot more (I'm not that knowledgeable in Harry Potter.)

As usual, any feedback and criticism will be well received, and thanks for reading!

Will be posting this in Scribble Hub and Webnovel too.

Jin Rou wanted to be a cultivator who defied the heavens, and surpassed all limits.

Unfortunately for him, he died, and now I’m stuck here. Arrogant young masters? Heavenly tribulations? Cultivating for days on end, then getting into life or death battles?

Yeah, no thanks. I'm getting out of here.

In which a transmigrator decides that the only winning move is not to play.

 

Beware of Chicken will be updated Monday, Wednesday, and Friday

Follow Aeternum, an unlucky soul, through a world some would consider a blessing and some a curse. Robbed of his rightful afterlife, how will he make the best of his second life?

On his adventure, he will struggle against and fight the world’s monstrous denizens. He is trying to survive using creativity and what little know-how he has while trying to enjoy life a little.

Maybe, with enough effort, he will be able to escape his fate as the toy of a bored God.

Thank you for checking out my light novel. I am a hobbyist writer who is still learning. I would appreciate any corrections people can make as well as constructive criticism. I hope that you enjoy the story!

I personally made the cover art with photo editing.

*edit* This story is the grinder I use to sharpen my writing skills further. Of course, I care for the story and wish to see it flourish. But, please understand that I have a long way to go to become a great author.

Current schedule: 12am, UK standard time. 9pm, central standard time. Once per week! (Temp)
