Summon Imp!

Summon Imp!
by Oskatat
HIATUS
500 pages

Travel with a newly born demon as he grows and learns in his own world as well as in other worlds as he gets summoned again and again. Usually to die or kill for others in strange and exciting places, but it's never certain what the next one will bring. It has its perks. With each new world comes a new story with new experiences and new lessons. There is always more to see, more to learn and more to know. Maybe, someday, it will all make sense. For now he will just work hard to become stronger, to be useful and, hopefully, survive that way.

A coming-of-age story, but different.


Things start to slow down to a crawl. Colors blur into one another until my vision is completely white. All I can think is "Shit, not this again!"

I hate being summoned.

_________________________________

updates once a week until I get more time

The idea for this story began in two places. One was the ridiculously rapid pace of gaining power in many novels. Both in games and in novels, I enjoy the struggle of the beginning character, why always the rush? The other was the way many monster or non-human MCs always seem to hurry to become human (again). It always felt like a cheap way to grant the character extra powers without the difficulty of writing a non-standard thought process.

Thus I wanted to write the slow(ish) progression of a monster character gaining strength and intelligence, while remaining distinctly non-human. There are no stats, xp or systems, no reincarnated soul or completely formed being to start with - unless I want to make fun of those. While the MC 'evolves', the process takes months if not years to proceed step by little step. Sit down with me and imagine, what would it be like if...

The Beast and The Swallow

The Beast and The Swallow (...)

803 pages

Of all the tales in all the lands, there isn't a story more famous and more heart-wrenching than the one about the Beast and the White Swallow.

Never heard of it? Then come closer, for it is about to unfold before your very own eyes.


In a far-away land of snow and mystery, the fates of two bastards entangle.

He is a warrior and a ruler. She is a physician with a tormented past.

Now both of them will have to learn not only to live together but also to fight against any and all that threatens to ruin their happiness. Amongst chaos, schemes, and war, will they manage to fulfill the most difficult task - finding the way to each other's heart and soul?

The path won’t be easy. A dark cult and even darker magic are resurfacing after years of slumber. And while they wreak havoc in the lands of Norden, the Star-gazer’s voice echoes in the night, heralding a dangerous future:

When the Beast falls, the Swallow shall triumph.

For the Sun to shine over Norden, the Swallow must be devoured.

**WARNING: The following story contains DARK, TRAUMATIZING elements that may not be appropriate for young viewers or those who struggle from traumatizing events. If you're not good with mature content, regardless of your age, this story is not for you. You have been warned. It's nowhere near as bad as GOT but it has dark shit. Again, you have been WARNED. Plenty of other less dark webnovels to safely read. **

**Additional Warning: A minimal amount of LGBT content is included in this story. There is no TAG for this so I'm including it here. If that makes you uncomfortable, go ahead and give it a pass. **

 

Previously titled: A Maiden's Frozen Heart.

An Isekai, Fantasy Regency, Thriller with Witches, Gods, and plenty of Drama and Betrayal.

{Book 1: A Den of Wolves} 

What if you knew the future? But what if that future was not yours?

After a gruesome death, Carina was reborn in Lafeara as Lady Maura, the unwanted “half-blood” of an impoverished noble family. The previous Lady Maura was publicly executed as part of a conspiracy to conceal the murder of Queen Eleanora.

With Maura’s memories to guide her, Carina prepares to follow her predecessor’s path into the palace as part of the Selection to become Crown Princess Eleanora’s lady-in-waiting. Her meticulous years of planning and preparation to ensure her survival, fulfill Maura’s revenge, and avert the oncoming Calamity will require every ounce of courage, cunning, and intellect she can muster.

Because Carina has more than one secret which she can not reveal—her true identity among them—but even more treacherous is her frozen heart and the ice magic that comes with it.

After all, they still burn witches in Lafeara.

{Book 2: A Coven of Crows} 

The problem with changing the past is that the future changes with it.

Although Carina survived the Selection and earned a place in the palace beside the Crown Princess, her battle to change the future and protect Lady Hana, the future Queen’s favored lady-in-waiting, is far from over.

As Carina becomes further entwined in the hidden witch covens of Lafeara, their history and magic unravel a dangerous secret long forgotten by most. It is not just Maura’s memories that threaten to shift the balance of Carina’s carefully laid plains but her own forgotten past as well.

And the more mysteries Carina uncovers, the fewer allies she finds standing on her side. Everyone wants something, but the most dangerous players in this game of mortals and witches are the gods themselves, who have their own sordid plans for Carina’s frozen heart.

{Book 3: A Plague of Witches}

Say what you will about the End of the World, but it makes for some great TV. When a Monster Apocalypse descends suddenly on an unexpecting Earth, Jonah finds himself the first victim of a sick and twisted gameshow.

As the table of the world is flipped and the lines redrawn for the amusement of their new alien overlords, Jonah finds himself trapped in the literal Belly of the Beast. And if he wishes to not only survive, but thrive, he'll find that cost might be more than he's willing to pay. As Jonah grows both in power and purpose, he'll have to ask himself if Revenge is really worth his Humanity.

--------------------------------

"What are you willing to do to survive? What are you willing to Become?

Jonah never really gave much thought to these kinds of things. He was just your average everyday young man, doing what he can to make it in the world. Unfortunately for Him, the world he knows is about to end. And he's the First Victim.

When Earth gets pulled into an intergalactic game show, hosted and ran for the entertainment of a Sadistic, super-advanced Alien race, all sorts of "Monsters" begin to spawn on Earth.

By a twist of fate, when a Gargantuan Snake spawns in the middle of his room and swallows him whole, Jonah becomes the first casualty of this sick game.

But Fate is not done with Jonah yet. For what fun is a Game without a fighting Chance? The question is, however, what price will he be willing to pay? "

An Advance in Time

An Advance in Time

In the year 2050, nanotech was invented that allowed humanity to do what it does best: ignore reality. Jason was a project manager at Razor, Inc. where those simulations were crafted and improved every day.  

That is, until an accident with a power outage and a poorly-coded backup protocol saw his consciousness transferred to a server and his body in a coma for the foreseeable future. 

With the corporate vultures circling around what they see as a new piece of company software, Jason finds himself in one of the simulations he used to design.

If you enjoy kingdom-building, strategy, technological progression and big challenges, you’ll likely enjoy An Advance In Time.

To be a synth is the greatest privilege an individual could be born into. What greater purpose or grander sense of fulfillment could one hope for than to be a tool of King Decon, the ruler of the Galaxy?

09T07 doesn’t know what more they want, but they know they’re missing something. Friendship? Intimacy? This seems to be the answer when they find others who are also not as King Decon intended them to be. However, how long can such things last among tools to be used and discarded? And how  far are they willing to go to protect their loved ones in the face of duty?

IMPORTANT: This webnovel is going down upon release to amazon on November 13th. 

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09KWBV4LY?ref_=pe_3052080_276849420 

The Stranger Trails Saga: Medieval fantasy meets the wild west in a tale of might, magic, wits, wagers and hard choices in a hard land.

Book 1 blurb:

Desperation can drive a man to do crazy things. Justice can drive him to do worse.

The Stranger came to Sorcererstown hoping to find a way to fix his rapidly failing health. What he found was a town in the grip of full-blown war. 

Not a sorcerer has drawn breath there in years. Only sorceresses fill the Great Schools of Magic. Hired killers from all corners of the map have come in answer to the call of thrown open money vaults and arcane armories.

Blood flows freely in the streets and peace is a distant memory for what remains of the honest citizens.

The Stranger was brought to Sorcererstown by desperation. He will stay to see justice done. No matter what it takes and no matter how dangerous a game he needs to play.

But with the arcane arts being thrown around like sling stones and the looming threat of a supposedly unbeatable warrior on his way to the battlegroundIt doesn’t take much for a wanderer’s plans to win him nothing but an unmarked grave.

It’s all or nothing in Sorcererstown and everyone is playing for keeps.

If you like classic spaghetti westerns and action-packed fantasy, you’ll love A Stranger in Sorcererstown. Read today!

This summary is for the first book in a trilogy, all of which was posted as one webnovel.

Updates daily at 23:06 UTC.

2/1/2021 NOTE! This trilogy is being published by Aethon Books starting with book one on 5/1/2021. Book one and two have been removed from RoyalRoad, and book three will be removed by October. I have posted all of book three here, giving all readers a chance to read the story for free.

Magnus Cromwell kills for a living.

He’s organized, professional, efficient. Like a machine. But when his family’s life is on the line? That’s something else. That calls for the kind of warm-blooded vengeance that scorches earth and summons tungsten rods from space, leaves a whole lot of melted flesh, and no one to tell the tale.

It should've been a blue milk run. As by-the-book as it gets. With his sister Nina out safe and the opposition decimated by hypersonic gunfire, MC wondered where they got the guts to even try. Then something hits him. Lays him out cold, and leaves him waking up to a fantasyland with nothing but his armor and a half-written note to guide him. It's a strange place where even stranger predators eye him for their next meal. Where his life’s on a timer, and where the darkest horrors haunt his dreams, painting visions of death.

There's no right day to mess with Magnus Cromwell. But the universe sure managed to pick the absolute worst one.

---

- MC is stone-cold, strong(OP), and gets even stronger, but he'll still face his fair share of challenges, both internal and external.

- LitRPG-lite. No stats and an unconventional system. Expect abilities and progressions, but there will only ever be a handful of them.

- Science Fiction and Fantasy collide, with a touch of mystery, Lovecraft, and body horror.

- Professionally painted art scenes!

- This series is finished.
