In the year 125 of the Singularity Age the Nevermore Institute is a worldwide, and extra-planetary, network of agencies dedicated to the study and understanding of a series of strange events related to the decay of the laws of physics in the universe called the Dark Events. 

Their special agents travel to where these cases occur in order to investigate them and try to prevent them from happening in the future. Mai, head of operations of the Special Investigation Division, with her partners Shin and Lizbeth, along with thousands of other agents, are in charge of carrying out these operations in cooperation with local forces. 

The cases they investigate are classified as Enygma Files.


Hi! I'm H.K., creator of the Nevermore series. I hope you enjoy it.

I will try to upload a chapter weekly but it is possible that in the future, for some time, the chapters may be delayed because the stories are divided into the cases that the characters investigate and I like to review them several times. Each case, depending on how long they are, is a volume.

Thanks for reading :).

Long has Mika, an otherwise devout princess of the Deep, dreamed of the wonders of the surface. Of endless oceans of trees, feathered carnivores and magical lightning. But the Overworld is a dangerous place, populated by warlike peoples who dwarf her already diminutive species in both size and brutality. To cross the boundary into that world is forbidden to all but a very few…and most certainly to her, a weak Singer in possession of a vital treasure. But when the horrors of the surface find their way below, Mika must choose: embrace the brutal, or face a fate worse than death.

~First place winner of the Royal Road Community Magazine Contest, summer 2022~

*Note: The dungeon side of the narrative will build slowly over time and only really kick off at the beginning of the second arc*

This story features a bisexual non-human MC and includes unconventional, probably kind of weird versions of high fantasy species like elves, orcs, and goblins. It’s also got elements of manapunk and flintlock fantasy, varied modes of gender expression, polyamory, multiple different sexualities but no explicit sex, grotesque lovecraftian body-horror abominations, fantastical versions of prehistoric animals and some very gratuitous hand-holding.

This LitRPG story revolves around a game developer named Shane finding himself reborn into the world he helped shape. He also created the powerful AI Director that controls many of the game's systems, so what happens when he finds out the AI Director made him more than once?

Shane Carther works as a developer for an ambitious new AAA game. The game, Endless Veil is an open-world RPG with contextual quests and endless procedural generation powered by an AI Director of Shane's own making.

The game world is populated by random events, dungeons, NPC outposts, portals, boss fights, wandering merchants, and more. Through machine learning, all of these encounters have context and backstory.

Right before the game's launch, Shane wakes up inside his own game. At first, this looks like a blessing as Shane has a robust custom class that gives him many more opportunities than usual to acquire power—and exciting loot.

Shane quickly learns that life in his game's world is authentic and deadly. Even though he respawns endlessly after dying, there are fates worse than death and rebirth. Fates like discovering you've already been reborn into Endless Veil many times and failed.

TMWTTM is a crunchy Progression Fantasy LitRPG with many randomized weapons, armor, abilities, spells, characters, and points of interest amidst an infinite world. Follow the sprawling tale of Shane as he tackles this new world. With all the joys and horrors a fully digital universe powered by an all-powerful artificial intelligence can bring!

Isekai’d into a game. It’s the dream of many, but definitely not what Jessica Harper, a regular high school teacher, envisaged happening in her mid-thirties.

Without access to the system, and with no real gaming knowledge at her disposal she is thrust into a strange and fantastical new world of power and magic that is always just out of reach.

Armed with only common sense and a background in ecology, with the help of a friendly minotaur and a naïve apprentice alchemist, she must unlock the mysteries of these strange lands.

It’s survival of the fittest out here. Agents of Darkness had better stay out of her way or they’re going to receive a thorough education.

This Fiction will update every Tuesday and Saturday.

There are many possible fates that can await those whisked away from our world to another.

Some became heroes or villains, given the right power to forge their own destinies as they wished.

Others, the powerless, became victims, doomed to perish, at the mercy of the cruel world filled with mystical powers they are unprepared for.

A lone man that woke up alone under the alien sky was neither of those.

He didn't get to choose what he was going to become - a disaster, an unwilling source of intelligent, yet violent monsters, rapidly rising in numbers. Stranded in a foreign land, without even knowing the language, his creations may be the only company he would ever find. 

He wasn’t powerless. But was he really that much better off? 

It just took one wrong power.

Janus Campbell can't fight. And unfortunately for him, that's the only way to survive.

Upcoming physicist Janus Campbell is trapped in the world of Tersaia, where shadow monsters lurk the streets, anyone can be monitored at any time and fighting is the best way to make a living; either through the Rumble Circuit, a world-wide ranking of combatants that keeps track of participants’ wins and losses in competitive duels, or through slaying the constantly spawning Essencima that terrorize the population.

Unfortunately for Janus, he doesn’t know how to fight. No special moves. No signature techniques. Not even a basic grab.

However, there are two people that might be able to help him out. Itzel, an avaricious woman with the ability to manipulate the wind, and Gurk, a man-crocodile hybrid of few words that can control ice, are the ones that will have to help Janus if they ever want to leave the harrowing alleys of Labrisson and rank up in the Rumble Circuit.

*Art is not mine. It's commissioned.

The Future That Never Was features an alternate space age where the Soviets colonized the belt before David Bowie sang Life on Mars; where rogue AIs took over the web; where pizza came in cans. Humankind couldn’t dream of a more exciting future. Yet, as foolishness eventually turned Earth into a nuclear wasteland, shadows began to conspire from the heart of the Moon to beyond the mysterious Planet Nine…

The book series is an extended universe which includes numerous R-rated titles. All of them will be uploaded on Royal Road. Check the Index or the list below for the main stories.

🐈  KITTY KITTY - Completed - READ

Join sassy space cat Lee and his Desert Eagle-toting, soda-swigging human partner, Ali, in a future stuck in the late 80s/early 90s. Board the dynamic duo’s ship, the mythical Kitty, as they bounty-hunt their way through a dystopian solar system—so lock and load, and shout Cowabunga! because it’s crime-fightin’ time! 


Amid the chaos of the Rings Civil War, a disgraced pilot finds himself tangled in a vast vendetta involving a megacorporation, android mercenaries and data-cartels. From Saturn’s Plastic Fields to the fringes of Kuiper, his violent redemption is an 80s-esthetic space western filled with tears, blood and... ducks?

Read the series on Amazon!

Dungeon: A place full of monsters, traps, treasure, and death. Those are the Great Dungeons, with unplumbed depths below the roots of the mountains.

That's not for me.

Dungeon: A place of rape, torture, and death, to control and corral enemies and slaves. These are the Red Cores, from which the mage-kings draw their power.

That's also not for me.

I don't like monsters. I don't want adventurers. I want to stay well away from enemies and slaves.

Fortunately, there are alternatives...
