The Valkyrie System

Lilith dies after giving birth and reincarnates as a Valkyrie. Thanks to a glitch in the System, her memories of Earth remain intact. Now she must make sense of her new world and her newfound powers as a death maiden. She has no intention of staying in Asgard, but for there to be any hope of going home, she must first survive Ragnarok, the apocalypse of the gods.

Meanwhile on Earth, a mysterious portal is discovered...


What to expect:

* a twist on Norse mythology, i.e. myths you might be familiar with will be altered slightly to fit the narrative
* GameLit stuff such as kingdom building, recruiting heroes, loyalty meter, forming alliances with other gods, clearing dungeons
* no leveling up, but there will be stats. Focus is on skills and magic items
* elves, dwarves, giants, etc.

Warning: This story will have a lot of death and gore and potentially traumatic and highly poignant moments. There may also be some sexual content though I'm not tagging it for now. I will warn you if a chapter has any explicit scenes.

Release schedule: I'll try to release at least 1 chapter every week. It'll be at random days/times to expose it to new readers from different timezones. When things get less hectic for me, I'll make time to write more and have a consistent schedule. If you enjoy the story, please do rate and comment on the story. PM's are also welcome. I enjoy reading all feedback, good or bad. It'll definitely encourage me to write faster.

Alex has played every game ever made...except one...for good reason...
When Alex Lombardi receives an SNES game console out of the blue, it appears that Nintendo Gods do exist. A huge fan of pixel art and retro games, Alex has been dying to replay some of the best titles of all time: Contra, Super Metroid, Final Fantasy, the list goes on. But what awaits the hardcore gamer isn't a trip down memory lane; it's a trip to the 16-bit world.
Schedule: New chapters released Mon-Fri at random times in November. I may cut back in December, but if there's a lot of interest, I will write more. 

Pixel'd is my first attempt at a LitRPG. It's my FIRST DRAFT, so expect plot holes and other mistakes :) Please give feedback on how to improve it. Very much appreciated!

What does a legendary hero do after the world has been saved?

Archibold Stormblood is the greatest hero in all of Visseria. He has spent his 221-year life training and fighting. Now that the Mad King is dead and the Demon Lord is defeated, all he wants is a well-deserved vacation living as a humble tavern keeper and brewmaster in his 19-year-old body.

But despite his best efforts to avoid conflict, trouble keeps finding its way back into his life.

Will Arch be able to hide his true identity as The Stormblood and maintain his alternate existence as a Tavern Keeper running the Tipsy Pelican Tavern with his growing staff of beautiful barmaids? Or will he be sucked into the new dangers brewing around him? 

More troublingly, how will he protect himself and his tavern now that his powers have been sealed away?

Volume 1 - Complete

Volume 2 is now releasing 5 days a week: Monday-Friday

Discord Invite (Soft Launch—the tavern needs dusting, ales are still brewing)

Fantasy, Comedy, Action, Slice-of-Life, (Very Mild Harem?), Light Novel

Please mind the genres before reading, thanks!

Ages: 13+

Since people seem quite interested about this, my writing influences are Patrick Rothfuss, Nisio Isin, Lee Child, and Fat Tire... sometimes that last one influences me the most ;)

(I might eventually move this series to KU, but I will give RR readers a free copy of the ebooks first if I do.)
