The cold nights, the days when the beasts roam.
Countless tales, made up from individual human minds
The sea, the earth, and the sky.
From the grains of this world, to small flowerbeds, to giants
Superstitions are what have formed this world, regardless of what kind of beliefs they were. Is what Louise thought
Were these tales even true?
I want to know about everything there is!
Disproven by many, even though they could never confirm either
This is the story of a girl who knew nothing of her own world.
Artwork done by Komoumo:
Because each chapter is illustrated, we'll release one on the first friday of every month! Hope everyone enjoys the read!

Alt. Title : How To Lie Like A Military Bulletin

If you're a wizard looking to conquer the world, you need someone to lead your armies, to inspire your subjects. They must be cunning in battle, of strong moral grounding, able to inspire loyalty, and most importantly they have to be rather difficult to kill. If you're going to spend decades setting up their heroic narrative to justify their rise to power, the last thing you want is them breaking their neck from falling off a horse. 

A sword and sorcery tale of world conquest. Born the son of a miner, schooled by a wizard, destined to rule the known world.

In this world, there are haves and have nots. The former are pureblooded humans, some of whom are capable of manipulating qi, the mysterious energy that flows through every living creature, to miraculous results that defy the laws of nature and physics. Wen Feili was one such cultivator. However, she allied with the have nots- the anthropomorphic hybrids incapable of channeling qi-and dabbled in forbidden demonic arts, seeking to change the very composition of reality. This did not end well for her, and she was consumed by her own flames. 

A decade later, far in the northwestern mountains, her daughter Wen Fengli is working as a lowly servant of the minor Shuangshan sect. In between sweeping the floor and avoiding bullies, she secretly trains with a wooden sword, hoping to become a warrior cultivator at some point in the future. However, since she's part-human, part-wolf, it's just a pipe dream. 

....or so she bitterly thought. However, one day a mysterious amulet that belonged to her mother falls into her hands. A deranged old master, a terrible conspiracy, a mysterious past? None of that matters to tomboyish wolfgirl, who only seeks to become stronger. She embarks on a journey of adventure and self-discovery, towards the mysterious southern lands where pure demi-humans are said to spectre of war once again envelops the world of man.

This is a Chinese-themed fantasy story set in a fictional world. You can classify it as xianxia, if you wish, but it's a rather low fantasy variant; the heavenly realm is silent, no one reached immortality in generations, and magical artifacts of old are locked away and feared. Magical beasts and spirits have been driven to the corners of civilisation, and "ordinary" abilities such as flying or controlling swords through telekinesis are considered spectacular feats. The main plot of this book revolves around a kemonomimi girl who seeks power, no matter the cost. 

This story also features multiple character pov, and will not always follow the perspective of the mc- there are two major plotlines, one connected to conspiracy and war ongoing in the political background of the presented world, and the other focusing on the main character's physical and metaphorical journey.

Quang is a slacker that doesn't have much going for him except for his skills in Chinese kickboxing and his proficiency with a pair of nunchucks. 

Selene is broke but still manages to overestimate herself. The fact that she's knows Hapkido and how to handle a set of tonfas doesn't help either.

Together, they're going to get into a lot of trouble.

Just like everyone else in the sweltering West Coast city of Isla Lucrecia, Quang Nghiem is struggling to get by. His family’s business can’t make ends meet, his childhood friend has vanished without a trace and the self-imposed local “Union” threatens to tear down the family restaurant if they can’t pay their dues. Fortunately for him, part-time lifeguard and fellow out-of-practice martial artist Selene Olwagen has nothing better to do and is more than willing to help Quang track down his missing friend. However, there’s more lurking in the shadows of Isla Lucrecia than typical street gangs and criminals. 

Almost every chapter will have illustrations to accompany it. Heavily inspired by fighting games and classic martial arts films. Expect that kind of tone of going in.

Updates twice a week, (mostly) on Wednesday and Saturday.

Illustrations and covers were done by Ati:

In the 26th Century, catastrophic warfare has rendered Terra uninhabitable, driving humankind to the brink of extinction. Spread out wide among the stars, the Interstellar Federation struggles to maintain order. 

In Saga of the Cosmic Heroes, Ensign Victoria Happ-Schwarzenberger follows her father's footsteps in the Metropolitan Space Navy. She hopes to accomplish great deeds, by protecting and preserving the Federation.

Joining Victoria on her quest for fame is Li Chou, known as the Madame Scarface in the Year 217 Mafia. Her adoptive father, Dong Zhui, is a pirate and ruthless dictator nestled on the fringe of the galaxy. The destinies of these two entwine as they seek to write new history in the Cosmic Era.

But history is most often defined by those seeking social justice, and a steadfast martyr named Alexandra Descartes-Dolz has something to say about this.

The history of the Interstellar Federation is about to be rewritten.
