Elania’s life is about to change in ways she could have never expected.

Summoned to a strange new world by demon-worshipping cultists, she flees before she is bound to their will by an unbreakable contract. 

Forced to fight for her survival against creatures she thought would only exist in a D&D manual while adjusting to her new body, what can a girl do when status screens and system elements have the power to change her very being?

In this action-packed LitRPG Fantasy Adventure, we follow Elania as she tries to find her own way back to the surface while seeking a way home.

Not currently updating. Kind of a bummer, but I am not sure when or if I will continue Elania's story.

"Magic cannot create life."

This is one of the most basic tenets of magic. And yet, when Professor Adelyn Mackenzie investigates rumours of a talented prospective student in a small village in the middle of nowhere, she finds that he has managed to create the world's first living homunculus.

"Magic is miracle given form."

That is what Cadmus Guiles' sister always said. So, when she died, it was only natural for Cadmus to believe that he could bring her back to life through magic. Now, offered the resources he needs to pursue this path of research, Cadmus gladly accepts to go to the most distinguished school of magic on the continent: The Laurucian Academy of Magic.

However, the Academy is a place of intense competition, and only those who rise to the top may recieve the services and resources that the Academy has to offer. Cadmus believes that he can easily defeat his peers due to him already having broken one of magic's most basic tenets, but it's time for him to learn that talent comes in many different forms...

From a sundered Universe, a Sorceress is made to reborn. But a human, the Sorceress is no more.

Born an insect, a vermin with a mere 90 days of life, the Sorceress seeks reasons to live.

Suffering the curse of unending starvation, the Sorceress must ceaselessly eat or die.

Meanwhile, Kiran leaves his home to defy mediocrity. Named after the hope he represents, he seeks a [Class] so austere that hundreds fail in their search. Yet, before this [Class] even the Gods bow their heads in respect.

P.S. This is NOT a number-crunching LitRPG. The System is an add-on, not the story itself. 

Also known as I Reincarnated as an Immortal Caterpillar, the story follows a monster and humans in a system word with a Buddhist/Hindu philosophy. The System is especially influenced by this philosophy.

I, The Lightning

I, The Lightning
by SC Requiem
342 pages

In the world of Foronea, power rules, and for the 80% of those who don't have any power--The Mundane--life is hard. Really hard.
Emmanuel Burroughs has had enough. Enough of being pushed around, and spat on. Enough of having his friends and family harassed just because some asshole decides he can. Enough of the nobles using The Mundane as little more than cattle.
And he knows just what to do about it. Godking Samuel Lionheart, ruler of Terralane and most powerful of the four god-rulers of Foronea, allows every citizen one attempt at the 'Trial of Blessing', a grueling test of wit, strength, and overall competency. If the challenger wins, they receive a Blessing, a power that manifests a unique form based on the user's personality. The better they do, the stronger the Blessing.
Emmanuel's plan is simple; get an S rank on the Trial, and get a Blessing strong enough to overthrow those at the top, fixing the problem with his own hands.
But when Godking Samuel makes Emmanuel his Chosen, with a Blessing miles beyond his expectations, Emmanuel finds that being the capital h Hero isn't all he thought it would be. And before he saves anyone, he'll need to figure out how to stop his own power from ripping himself apart.


Hello! Author here!

Updates Every Friday! Chapters are anywhere between 2k and 8k words long. 

So, some warnings;

-This novel contains a rather high amount of swearing. Thats just how it is. I like swearing, its in the book. 

-This book is LitRPG, BUT it takes a LONG time to get there. This is a much slower burn than most other LitRPG, so please keep that in mind.

Reborn in Another World as a (Colorless) Demon Prince

He made his break through and proved the naysayers wrong. But just as everything in life was falling into place, he died. A strange being meets him in the in-between, and he is given a second chance at life. The world he's reborn into in full of wonderous monsters and adventures to be had.

However, he's not human anymore, but a demon. And not just any demon, but a Colorless prince. Even worse, demons and humans don't exactly...get along. War looms between the two nations, and threatens to capsize his life into chaos and blood.

If he wants to make anything of himself, he will need to work very, very hard. 

It's a shame he's not sure what to do or where he wants to go.

Please note: The story is a slow burn and only starts to pick up after chapter 8. Also, if you like Re:Zero, give this one a shot. It is also a weak to strong story.

When Dr. Julian Blake, PhD, joins the military organization dedicated to eliminating the immortals plaguing the Earth, he never expected to die himself. And he certainly didn’t expect to find the bridge to the afterlife exactly as he and his team had hypothesized: a river where departed souls drifted languidly before tumbling down a great waterfall into the beyond.

He’d be insane not to explore it. After all, it’s the end of his life. It’s his only chance. But curiosity is as often a vice as a virtue as Julian finds when he deviates too far from his path…

Alive again, Julian has a second chance to defeat the immortals. And a third chance. And a fourth. As many as he needs to remove the scourge from the Earth and hopefully figure out a way to save his damned soul in the process.

(For new readers: LITRPG elements don't take effect until Chapter 12)

At twenty-years, Nicholas has lived his life to fulfil a vow. With the obligation settled, he yearns for answers to the mystery of his own origin. To solve it, he will need to venture to the old continent, the Ancient Capital, and to the midst of the war waged to reclaim it from the monsters that have driven humanity from it, countless millennia ago. He has planned for this, with years of effort in the making.

Yet not all plans survive, and with the advent of heathen invaders, he swears another promise and finds himself alone in the wilderness of the old continent. With enemies, both monster and human, surrounding him on all sides, he draws on ancient powers that may finally provide the answers he was looking for all along.

However, the night is long and he must tread carefully on his newfound powers, because he may turn into something that even monsters fear.

Finished as the #3 Story in ScribbleHub's Adventum Contest!


A woman dies in a rather embarrassing way, and is reborn into a shapeless void, as a god.

Now, after accidentally renaming herself "Snooze", she has become a Level One God, and must learn everything she can about how to control her new abilities--including Creation Management!

A silly stitch of fate, Snooze begins to grow more powerful as she combines elements, creates a world, and has to combat the flighty whims of her rosy-glowing archangel named Meat.

This is a work of comedy (or an attempt at it, in any case.)

Illustration for the cover is by the wonderful and talented dathie / @dathieart (on Instagram)




This is LitRPG-Lite. There are gaming elements, and abilities that can be leveled up, but the system isn't sophisticated.
