Paths of the Chosen (Rewritten, Revised, and Reinvigorated)

Daniel Stewart was chosen to alpha test a brand new Immersive VR game, "The Realms". What he doesn't know is that he has also been Chosen by one of the Powers of a far-off world, and is now a pawn in a game much bigger than any he thought he would ever participate in. Will he survive and thrive in this strange new world, or will he stumble and fall, shattered by the ambitions of another? Does he have what it takes to walk the Paths of the Chosen?

Inspired by the Chaos Seeds novels, TheDespaxas's The Gamer, and a wide variety of games and books, although the world, characters, and systems are my own. Expect high fantasy, magic, combat and intrigue, love and loss, grief and passion. This story is intended for adult audiences and contains explicit sexual content, profanity, and violence (including sexual violence, although not by the protagonist and not as a focus of the story). Chapters with such content will be clearly marked, and all explicit sexual content will be behind spoiler tags. I prefer my stories to have happy endings, and especially in these uncertain times, I feel that it is important to maintain hope. While this tale will reach some dark places, I promise to you that, when all is said and done, the villains will be justly punished and the heroes will prevail and prosper. Remember: it is darkest before dawn, but dawn always comes.

Please note also that although this story does not have the [Harem] tag, it does have an extremely slow build into a polyamorous relationship. Additionally, starting with Champion (book two of the series), the [Multiple Lead Characters], [Female Lead], and [Non-Human Lead] tags would also apply to varying degrees.

This is a complete, ground-up rewrite of the original Paths of the Chosen, following feedback from here and elsewhere. It is now written in the third-person limited omniscient perspective and in the past tense. In addition, while the major plot beats are unchanged, most of what comes between them has been reconsidered and rewritten, with pacing and characterization as a special focus.

---

Update schedule: 2 chapters per week (Monday and Thursday), not counting bonus chapters. Chapter length is roughly 2,500 words on average, +/- 1,000 words. Chapters with explicit content tend to be longer so that they are still worth reading for those who would prefer a fade to black.

Among Monsters and Men

Among Monsters and Men

Mankind has settled the distant world of Orr and devolved into a post apocalyptic late medieval era, at war with its native races. The Crown King has been assassinated by native hands after what seemed would be a tenuous peace. Now his son, Crown Prince Hector, must take the High Throne and renew the call to war. As he uncovers more of the truth, bloody secrets are revealed and even darker revelations...

I am inspired by A Game of Thrones, Mark Lawrence's hauntingly dark tone, Joe Abercrombie's gritty combat, and Patrick Rothfuss' beautiful prose; seeking to emulate these elements into my own story.

Full disclosure, the cover image isn't mine. Check out the full image here.

I put all the warning tags to give myself creative freedom, but I'm not going to write a story filled with gore or swearing.

This is my first time writing, other than for school projects. I put the gender-bender tag because I wanted to try writing from a female's perspective, and needed an excuse for why my MC reads a little tomboyish. The gender-bender fades into the background over the first few chapters, please don't let the tag keep you away from trying out my story.

Synopsis:

Second chances are rarely earned, and even rarer given. Follow a new life in a new world, where anything is possible. Our MC wakes up, stuck as a baby, needing to decide how she will live her new life. Let's see what future she can forge for herself, when hard work is rewarded with status points and skill levels.

Evil Goddess System

Evil Goddess System
by Tilted_Axis
ONGOING
928 pages

In the distant past, mana flowed freely across all the Earth. There were numerous races, ferocious beasts, monsters, and even gods. These forces put considerable pressure upon humanity, pushing their population to the lowest point in history. In an effort to save his worshippers, the God of Heaven initiated his so-called "War of Righteousness." 

Many races were devastated, however none more so than the blood race. With her people facing extinction, the Goddess of Blood created the spitefully named Evil Goddess System to preserve her legacy in the worst-case scenario. Eventually, the Goddess fell, and the blood race went extinct.

Not long after, the Earth was cut off from the cosmic mana stream, and the numerous magical creatures inexplicably and suddenly vanished.

Tens of thousands of years passed, and humanity spread across the Earth. Finally, having sensed the slow return of the Earth's mana, the Evil Goddess System began to search for the inheritor of the Goddess's legacy.


Author Notes: 

- The release schedule is currently Tuesday and Thursday.

- This is a gender bender novel, but due to story elements, the MC doesn't really reflect on it that much after a while. However, it still occasionally brings the MC some interesting and fun situations.

- Perhaps most important is if you notice there is a villainous lead tag for this novel. You may also notice the anti-hero lead tag. Over time after certain story events, the lead will move closer to the anti-hero lead tag, but that is in chapters that aren't written yet, so, for now, expect the MC to do villainous or evil things. 

- Lastly, the cover was commissioned for use for this novel only. 

Hopefully, this novel can be an entertaining and enjoyable experience for those who choose to read it. Thanks.

My mother always told me never to make life changing decisions when upset or angry.

When humanity was forced into 'The Dream' I couldnt avoid the biggest decision of my life. I was not prepared for the consiquences of that single decision. Thrown into a situation far outside of my depths I was forced to fight for my life and sanity.


My name is Erick Sanders. I was a heart broken idiot during the first night of 'The Dream' When humanity was linked in a single Dream state, an advanced replica of the universe, The world changed forever. 
That first night, I thought I deserved to be in the Fifth Tier. I may have been wrong.

I experienced many things in those following weeks. Fear, Depression, Slavery, Agony, Hope, Drive and Power.

This is the story of my experience and that of humanity.

Summoned to another world and forced to fight a war, Alex didn’t even survive the first day, dying at the hands of a grotesque monster. But things aren't over for him when he found himself reborn as an imp in a dungeon. 

Having experienced death once, Alex swore to never let himself killed again. However, in an environment where even the beings of the same species are your potential enemies, can such a thing be possible?  Thankfully, Alex still had access to the system he gained as a transmigration bonus when he was summoned to this world. With it, maybe it is possible for him to survive the hellish prison called a dungeon, and one day he would have his revenge against the empire that summoned him.  

All in the future though, but first, he has to survive the terror of goblins that loomed over his head...

Malt the Manslayer

Malt the Manslayer

This story does not follow a hero. Malt doesn’t slay dragons with a holy sword nor is he granted immense magical power when he transfers. Unlike his three classmates, he was brought into the new world not as a mythical hero, but with stats comparable if not worse than the average townsfolk. Assaulted by feelings of inadequacy and weakness, he leaves the comfortable castle life that the royalty offered him and decides to help his new country in the only way he thinks he can. By joining the war on the southern border. Not a war against mythical beasts or powerful demons, but against other humans. He thought that he’d finish a single deployment then come back to the castle, proud enough to stand beside his friends again.

 

Little did he know that he’d become one of the most feared fighters on the battlefield, killing so many that he’d earn the moniker,

 

 “Malt the Manslayer.”
