Mother of Learning

Mother of Learning
by nobody103
ONGOING
2.8k pages

Zorian is a teenage mage of humble birth and slightly above-average skill, attending his third year of education at Cyoria's magical academy. He is a driven and irritable young man, consumed by a desire to ensure his own future and free himself of the influence of his family, whom he resents for favoring his brothers over him. Consequently, he has no time for pointless distractions or paying attention to other people's problems.

As it happens, time is something he is about to get plenty of. On the eve of the Cyoria's annual summer festival, he is killed and brought back to the beginning of the month, just before he was about to take a train to Cyoria. Suddenly trapped in a time loop with no clear end or exit, Zorian will have to look both within and without to unravel the mystery before him. And he does have to unravel it, for the time loop hadn't been made for his sake and dangers lurk everywhere...

Repetition is the mother of learning, but Zorian will have to first make sure he survives to try again - in a world of magic, even a time traveler isn't safe from those who wish him ill.

Next Chapter Target Date: November, 2019 (No Exact Date)

The story updates with a new chapter every 3-4 weeks. I aim for one chapter every 3 weeks, but real life sometimes interferes with that and I end up taking an extra week to finish things.

If anyone is interested, I have a story-related worldbuilding site that can be found here. I don't update it as often as I should, but there is a fair amount of content there already. It also contains a page with all the fanart, fan translations, audio books and the like - you can reach it directly by clicking this link.

I have a patreon account for those kind people that want to give me money. It also contains info for those who want to donate via paypal.

The story was originally posted on fictionpress, back in 2011. When I reached chapter 91, I started uploading the story to RoyalRoad, one chapter per day. The story will continue to be updated on fictionpress as well as here, and can be reached by clicking on this link if somebody is interested, though at this point there is nothing there that isn't also on RoyalRoad.

The cover you see on the side has been made by a fellow RoyalRoad user Sydorow. Thank you for your time and art skills.

AEGIS OF THE GODS

AEGIS OF THE GODS
by Terry C Simpson
HIATUS
768 pages

SERIES OF 5 BOOKS IS COMPLETE AND ON ALL BOOKSELLERS.

Death feeds life in Denestia. The world's power corrupts those who wield it. Magics and creatures long thought dead rise again.

In Ostania, the armies of the shade marches, leaving carnage in their wake. In Granadia, the ruling Tribunal maintains its stranglehold on its empire while bringing Ostania and the rest of the 'uncivilized' world to heel under the guise of 'enlightenment' even as the independent kingdoms reel before the shade's advance.

Caught in the middle are four:

Ryne Waldron, a living legend, driven near madness by his power and hunted by the Tribunal's assassins and the shade, struggles to defend a village he swore to protect.

Irmina Nagel, a Tribunal assassin bent on revenge, is sent to retrieve Ryne and must pass her final test even if it scars her for life.

Ancel Dorn, a gifted student at the cusp of his power's manifestation, has lost his way due to a love spurned, and now finds himself hunted by the shade and guided by a mysterious killer.

Galiana Calestis, a Teacher, a Tribunal leader, is burdened by past failures and must manipulate any in her way to see the Chronicles come to pass and save her people.

Between warring nations, vengeful leaders, magic and steel, myth and men, the fate of the world hangs in the balance. Who shall unite the kingdoms? Who can bring the world's power to heel? Who can walk the knife's edge of harmony? If none can, then Denestia is doomed.

(AUTHOR NOTE: The Quintessence Cycle and Aegis of the Gods are part of a shared universe, the Cyclic Omniverse. While they are connected, one can read any series independent of the other. The Cyclic Omniverse chronicles a conflict between the Eternals and the Lesser Gods and the innocent worlds and peoples caught in its web.)

Ruin (Series)

The land of Ruin is a brutal, harsh, and unforgiving desert with little water and less kindness. Do not mistake its brutality for lack of life though. Thousands of traders and people from all walks of life travel its vast reaches daily looking to make their fortune in the trade of "black crystal" - the mineral that fuels everything from airships to, landships, to currency its self. There is even rumor of its magical properties.

Jim is just such a trader and frankly, he sucks at it. But, things are about to change for him. Ever the introverted hermit, he's about to be thrust into a world of intrigue, magic, and colorful friends. Ruin gives few second chances. Don't waste yours.

This story is on hiatus/abandonned.

 

People die, then that's all... or at least, it should be that way. There may be anomalies, yes – the occasional hero of old getting reincarnated for some obscure purpose – but who knows what the gods are thinking. If they are thinking at all. If there are gods, to begin with.


What would explain such a mistake, then? The hero mark wasn't given to our reborn champion, but to his perfectly normal sister. A prank from these mindless gods, perhaps. Luckily for him, he was done with this hero business and had other plans for his new life, so it's all good... Here is the story of one who isn't meant to stand among heroes, kings and emperors anymore, yet will find himself holding power over them.

Legends of The Wesh: Lochley

Legends of The Wesh: (...)
by Jazrael Harken
HIATUS
179 pages

The Universe is held together by something. It is an undisputable truth but nobody knows what that something is.

People claim that it is connected by The Path of Legends, where Gods traversed trying to find the meaning of their own existence. Others claim that the universe is a Tree, connecting worlds with its extending branches and giving life-bearing fruits to its inhabitants. Several even claimed that the Universe is just a colony of ants, that this universe and the worlds in it are just as insignificant as insects.

In one of the Worlds in it, the arrival of someone signaled great changes. Gods will die, Trees will Rot, Insects will burn. Those at the top had fallen and they will upend the worlds trying to claim what was theirs. Those at the bottom have had enough of scraps and they yearned to devour the fruits of the worlds. Those that were innocent and caught in between had no choice but to persist, lest they get erased by the surging tides.

Nobody knows where will they end, but everybody knew where they started. They will not be judged, they will not be rebuked, they will not be curbed, they will not be vanquished.

The universe is their canvas and it’s time — time to paint their truths upon it.


Azrael was born as a prince in the warring world of Ost. Inheriting the title but not its privileges and oppressed by his siblings in every step of his life, he had no choice but to be subservient to their whims until circumstances spiraled him to the abyss, to a new world, and to more agreeable companions.

But is he truly free from the past or will it continue to hound him to his new life?


Elira had one wish… to be known more than as an offspring of the Great Phasol Family. Talented, hardworking, and stubborn, she struggled to break free from the influence of her family.

Everything had been going well in her life but is she strong enough to resist the upheaval and truths of the world?


William grew up in an orphanage with nothing to his name. Regaled by various tales of fantasy and greatness by his caretakers, he reached adulthood with the goal of having a legend of his own.

Will he make his mark on the world or be forgotten like an ant; crushed by the boot of an unsuspecting traveler.


The world of Lochley has been at peace for centuries and its undercurrents are growing restless from waiting… waiting for that spark of opportunity to ignite and swallow the world whole.

Some will cause it, some will resist it, and some be drowned by it.

Which one will you be?

The whole room is fully ablaze when the fire turns blue and even hotter. And I still keep my hands on the rune, ignoring the sizzling of my flesh. After a while I notice the blue, roaring flames on the other side of the window. At the edge of unconsciousness, I listen to the screams of people as they are taken by the Inferno.

A Bad Man Gets Badder

My name is Harald Runestorm.

In real life, I help children with their homework and volunteer in a library project for homeless refugees (due to a probation order), but in my spare time, I log into the World of the Greenwood and kill people for fun.

Sometimes I torture them too, and I generally rob them, but other days I stay in my tower and craft things.

One day, from a shady informant,  I heard about a shipment of gold ore through the woods. It seemed the Druids Guild was taking its gold diggings to market, so I thought I’d take it off them. I’ve always hated hippies, with their 'respect the woods' and 'pet butterflies' attitude to life. I wanted them to respect my sword and pet my fist. My Runefist that is. With their face.

I went down to the woods to teach them a lesson about pain and loss. Then I learned a lesson myself.

 A LitRPG short story (15,280 words!) set in The World of The Greenwood MMO.

Caution: The Runesmith is light hearted so if you don't like light hearted, or short stories or LitRPG (or any combination thereof), don't read.

Nic Tutt is a good student. He excels at all subjects. But his education serves only one purpose—to gain entry into the Ransom School. 

Ransom is the most prestigious school in the country. Its alumni are destined to become the future leaders of Ranvar. Politicians, statesmen and, in some exceptional cases, mages. Only the brightest and the best get into Ransom.

But Nic doesn't care about any of that. He isn't determined to get into Ransom to further his prospects or better his career opportunities. He has another reason to want to enter Ranvar's most famous school.

What happens when the great heroes turn out to be rude glory-seeker zealots, or savvy and snarky jerks ?
Something different from what bards, poets and minstrels sing, is what happens.

Everyone knows about his journey across the continent. How he met friends and foes alike, how he fought against the greatest wizards, warriors, beasts and demons. Everyone believes he had the purest heart, the noblest soul, and that he selflessly braved many dangers in order to achieve goodness.

Hah ! Well that's what the songs and legends say anyway ! He did it all for the fame and glory, what do you think ?

Mercs are causing trouble in my city. They are hunting someone, whatever the cost. It’s not like I care that some lowly humans died, but if I don’t act now it would set a bad example. So what would the hero do? Probably he would save the victims and protect them while the enemies keep coming…

Yeah, as if I would ever do something so troublesome! They aren’t calling me the demon lord for no reason. I suppose I’ll just shoot the victim and be done with it.

I was asked about reading my work on other sites.

The answer is simple: Currently I am not active in any other networks than royalroadl.com. Only here, I correct mistakes and errors.

If you read it anywhere else and have to pay for it, or have to deal with an annoying amount of advertisement, You Are Being Betrayed.

You would do good if you make other people in that network aware of it. This is a free project of mine for the purpose of having fun. And if people try to make money with it you shouldn't bother visiting their website.

I have no problem with translation and reposting of the story, as long as the person in question isn't doing it for money or stealing my identity.

The only one whom I actually allowed to have my work on his website is Armaell who invested the time to compile them into pdf.

Savage Divinity

Savage Divinity

A modern man finds himself reincarnated in the body of a young slave with no skills and quickly fading memories. Follow his journey to find normalcy while living in a savage world, filled with myth and legends, monsters and Demons. In a land where the strong rule, the weak serve, and bloodshed is a way of life, peace is a luxury few can afford.

 

Author's note: Expect a chapter every tues/thurs/sun, unless I start writing faster. The story is eastern themed, but not Xianxia, no chasing immortality, MC is not OP. Less action, more character and world driven is my aim. Mature language and themes, but no raunchy sex. It's my first story, constructive criticism would be appreciated.
