A FORGEMASTER OF WAYLAND

A FORGEMASTER OF WAYLAND
by FAHyatt
COMPLETED
342 pages

William Drake, a modern day Illinois blacksmith, is no stranger to unusual orders, but the latest one is odder than most. He has been commissioned to create a sword of bizarre specifications, and the sword isn't the only thing that's strange. His customer, Markham, is definitely not a local, and balks at the bill.  The sword is stolen by Markham, and William storms after him, finally retrieving the blade at the top of a rented Scottish tower. During the confrontation, William is transported, artifact in hand, to an alternate world called Wayland.Sly bartering demons, the Aos Si, wish to claim Wayland, as does a rival duke and his mage, Veddick. Meanwhile, a banished dieity, Credine, is seeking return to Wayland by using William as his unwilling avatar. Caught in a web between the three competing powers, William must unravel the mystery of the sword he has forged, stave off the encroaching god Credine and save the residents of Wayland from both the god, the usurpation of the rival duke, and the Ao Si.

The Magic of Logistics

The Magic of Logistics

The harbour Luc has been dropped into is not a normal one. It looks like a medieval town, it's full of strange people and some of them are waving magic around.

Luc will need to rely on new friends and his own determination to learn how to harness the magic of the Aether. He has to find his way back home.

---

Hi everyone,

This is my first story in English. Please tell me if I've used a word incorrectly.

It's a slow-paced, slice of life isekai focused on Luc's goal of going home, his learning of the magic and gathering the resources he needs to grow.

The chapters after the first one will be about 2-3k words long. I'll try to post at least once a week.

Hope you enjoy!

Death is coming. And he wants to help.

The world of Eleg may seem like a normal enough place at first blush, but wade deeper into it, and soon the dark, the deadly, and the mad will begin to reveal themselves.

But don't worry.

They usually have a sense of humor.

The world as we know it ends in the year 2000. Over the course of a week, billions die and the survivors are faced with a reality that no longer makes sense. Can they fight back against wizards, monsters, and robots in a world where none of the old rules seem to apply, and their only ally is a mysterious heads-up display that reads like a particularly uninterested narrator?

Well, that part of the story's mostly done.

Hunter, instead of being alive in the age of heroes and martyrs, bravely fighting for the future of his entire planet, is born in 2003. By the time he can walk and talk, humanity has already fought back the worst of its demons and settled into its new status quo. What's an easily bored kid supposed to do in the Midwest when there's all this magic and nothing to do with it?

Rich's life sucks. He lives in a dystopia, His father's an abusive creep, his mother's up to some shady stuff, and he's pretty sure he's going to die a virgin.

He can't do much about the first few problems, but a new darknet game might give him a shot at getting laid. But even the most well-laid plans go astray, and he ends up with way, way more than he bargained for. He gains a character with the rarest of all races: Dragon.

But it's a two-way street, and strange occurances and problems soon have Rich wondering if this is truly a game, or something far more sinister...

Chase Berrymore dreams of adventure, excitement, and getting the heck out of her pastoral halven village.

But when adventure finds her, she'll be scrambling to save everyone of her family and friends from a decades-old conspiracy. Outmatched in almost every way, she'll have to use her wits, charisma, and a bit of divine favor to figure out the path to victory. But the odds are bad, and even with an Oracle's foresight, she can't save everyone. 

Even worse, she'll have to figure out ways to deal with the weird and nigh-immortal beings that call themselves "playas..."

A litrpg romp with a very non-standard protagonist, set in the same world as the "Threadbare" books.

THIS STORY IS CURRENTLY BEING RE-WRITTEN. The re-write will be out soon, and a link to the new story will be posted here when it is. Please check it out when it gets here!

 

Re-write link: The Planar Archivist

 

The humans of Astalon have always wondered what lay beyond their home. At night, the skies give all that observe a reason to ask that question. In midst of the stars, beyond the moon and the edge of the world, what is there to see? What wonders await? 

In the place after the world, in the great Beyond, what could possibly be lurking? With the answer came Convergence; the merging of worlds.

Astalon. Caereith. Ibbeathis. Kalsdyn. Ilbithar. Blackrend. Cassima. Ooum. The Everfrost.

Nine names. Nine realms.

Brought together in a single, great collision, nine of the uncountable number of realms in Beyond are destined to converge and eventually become one. In this mess, one boy immediately finds his life thrown into disarray with the entry of a mysterious plane-crosser. A girlan Amarid from Caereith that has accidentally found herself crossing into Astalon, and straight into a collision course with Theodore Auric's life.

Now armed with his quill, a notebook, and an unlikely friendship, Theo raises fate a single question.

What could possibly go wrong?

Meet Threadbare. He is twelve inches tall, full of fluff, and really, really bad at being a hero. Magically animated and discarded by his maker as a failed experiment, he is saved by a little girl. But she's got problems of her own, and he might not be able to help her.
Fortunately for the little golem, he's quick to find allies, learn skills, gain levels, and survive horrible predicaments. Which is good, because his creator has a whole lot of enemies...

All things are.

We once dreamed of a sky filled with possibilities. Of neverending knowledge. But those were conceited times, filled with quibbling. Now we look up and fear the vastness. We fear that there’s no edge to infinity.

Humanity pulled itself together. Not like you’d expect, not like you’d approve of, but the results are spectacular. We call ourselves Utopians now, to make it simple for our kin in the cosmos. We’ve moved out into the Omniverse, to unlimited resources, and to dominance over the weak. Not for gain, but to the ends of permanence and peace. The cessation of their suffering.

At the apex, looking down on those confined, those unenlightened, we felt safe. So few stand shoulder to shoulder with us. Fewer yet of them are so united as we.

Porter, a godkiller for the Eidolons, is out of the job. Christopher, a Magus in the Guild, has him a new one, but with motives questionable. Kendall, a failing student at the Monastery, has to deal with secrets he never wanted. Anna, her entire life just fell apart, leaving her bereft. And Doran, he awakens. Each of these people, connected as members of the Omniversal Utopian Commonwealth, are helpless to the dark truth closing in. Not even the artificial intelligence, Aku, keeper of all Utopian power, can stop the Ouroboros.

It’s not a new dawn. The light is dying. Hold your breath and go gently.
