The Legend of Randidly Ghosthound

Original Action Fantasy LitRPG Profanity Gore

As the system initializes, the world shifts. Geography is rearragned and mixed, and levels and stats are instituted across the globe. On that night, one young man was walking through an underground tunnel, his mind on the small problems of his easy life. Because of his location during the shift, he starts in a dungeon far above his level, with no knowledge or teacher, or Newbie Village to guide him. Without a class, he struggles simply to survive in this world changed by its new connection to the Nexus.

But struggle he will, for he is Randidly Ghosthound, and this is only how his legend begins...

**Author's Note**

This started as a way to destress and play with overly complicated stats systems and level systems, and I just kept writing. I don't really take it very seriously, but feel free to read and enjoy.

Everybody Loves Large Chests

Original Adventure Fantasy LitRPG Anti-Hero Lead Harem Magic Non-Human lead Secret Identity Profanity Sexual Content Gore

Large chests are said to encompass all manner of hopes and dreams. Men covet them. Women envy them. But one fact holds true - everyone wants to get their hands on some big ones.

The same holds true for one intrepid adventurer - a strapping young lad by the name of Himmel. Armed with his grandfather’s trusty longsword and the dream of being the strongest, he sets out on the journey of a lifetime! It is sure to be a long and dangerous road, fraught with danger! And it all starts with a simple test - reach Level 5 in the dungeon called the ‘newbie zone’ and earn the right to become a full-fledged adventurer!

However, such things get hopelessly derailed when his adolescent mind beholds an exposed chest for the first time. A fateful meeting that would inevitably lead his life in a direction he never even dreamed of!

This fiction is a participant of the WriTEr's pledge.

The Arcane Emperor

The Arcane Emperor

Original Action Adventure Comedy Drama Fantasy LitRPG Romance Harem Male Lead Strong Lead Magic Anti-Hero Lead Profanity Sexual Content

Rainer, an amateur arcanist and college student, sought to create a new spell far surpassing the magic of the few he inherited from his grandfather. Yet the interference of an unknown event during the casting of his spell led him to be thrown through space and time.

Where status screens were accepted as normal and class distinctions were quite clear. Leveling and achieving a class beyond a simple farmer or peddler was an affair of life and death combined with years of hard training. Goblins were not the fodder that they should be, orcs filled bedtime stories in order to scare children into behaving, and a dragon? You might as well pack up and move to another country.

He, however, enters this world with the rare and powerful class of the Arcanist. How will the recently ardent seeker of magic find greater heights, or will he land in deeper depths?

Requiem of Souls

Original Adventure Horror LitRPG Romance Harem Supernatural Strong Lead Magic Anti-Hero Lead Profanity Sexual Content Gore Traumatising content

Did you ever wonder that there might be another world? a world where magic exist? A world where dragons, devils, gods and more.

Well our Mc thought that those worlds were but the fantasy of crazed writers, and would only read about them in books and stories.
However, he was transported to such a world, he and his classmates. A world where the laws made by men were easily bent, where life itself was not worth the pebbles on the roads.
Betrayed by his classmates and offered as an unholy sacrifice, Daiki finds himself in hell, bound to eternal torment and destitution, forced to undergo hideous torments for sins he has yet to commit, Daiki swears to bring down the ones responsible over this.

The story starts with the journey to hell and its seven circles, it is but the beginning of an event that will shake the heavens themselves…

(World mythology is included within this story, from Christian myths like the fallen angels. The four horsemen the princes of hell, even Celtic, Indian, African, Greek, Hebru, and more, too many mythologies have been included within this story to add to its complexity and beauty, I hope you are a fan of old myths, this story is filled with them)

Update time is 2 chapter a week. Every Monday and Friday.

This is Mythran's property. It's a tribute to his story and I claim nothing except having fun and adding new things. I wanted to continue Ren's story... hopefully as faithfully to the original outline as possible. The first 16 chapters by Mythran are here: Master Of All, Jack Of None  Please Note: This story has just reached 1,000,000 (one million) words. May 30th, 2017
17 year old Ren Haddon hasn’t had an easy life. His drug addict parents used him as a lab rat and left him almost crippled for life. After they were caught, he went on to spend his life in the hospital. Under constant care, the white walls of his room was all he knew... until that day. That fateful day his name was drawn out from millions of others to receive a one of a kind class in the new virtual world game called F.L.O.W. (‘Fantasy Life Online World’). These are his adventures.

Savage Divinity

Savage Divinity

Original Action Adventure Fantasy Harem Martial Arts Slice of Life Profanity Gore

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 mon/wed/fri, 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.

Disclaimer: Original story by HiDrangeA. With their permission, I am taking over the continuation of this story as the original author no longer wishes to continue. While I am not as experienced, I hope you all will continue to show as much interest in my attempt at the helm as you did for the original author. I have tried my best to emulate the original style as well as incorporating some of my own. Thank you for understanding.

Summary: This is the story about a man who had reached the peak of strength. All sense of wonder and excitement were lost on that day, he was far too powerful.

However something changed, when he was thrust into a completely new world, with a different playing field. That sensation he once thought was lost was slowly returned to him. Yet his situation did not change; he was still just as strong as he was before. The difference now was that he actually had a way to let out this pent up anxiety.

What he sought was not money, not power, not women, not men, not influence. What he truly wanted was to experience the greatest 'narrative', to experience the very history of this world as it unravels around him. However nothing comes to those who do not move.

This is the story about the God of Theatre and his quest to find his lost enthusiasm. Simultaneously the world's greatest villain and hero; history dyed in the color of the man that would be dreaded as 'Mordred'.

Tower of Babel: Speedrunner

Original Adventure Fantasy LitRPG Male Lead Strong Lead Magic Strategy

Launch day. 

That was what they called it. The day when over four million people vanished in an instant from the island of Manhattan.  The day earthquakes ravaged the east coast. The day a one hundred and one kilometer tall tower rose from the wreckage of the now empty city. The day every screen, newspaper,  and smart phone displayed a single message from an unknown source:

The Great Emperor has issued his challenge.

From the ruins of the Old World rise the Tower.  Its doors will soon open, and the great game will begin. 

A hundred floors and a hundred challenges await the worthy.

And to the victor?  A Wish of Unlimited Power.

Cayden Caros yearned to play that game.  His only problem?  The Terms and Conditions. A strict set of rules that, among other things, prevented anyone under the age of sixteen from entering the tower.  

Forced to wait for over two years, Cayden did the only thing he could do to pass the time. He researched, he practiced and he prepared. It would take a lot to catch up to players with such an enormous head start.  Lucky for him, he was a special type of gamer.

Story updates daily on an erratic schedule.  Currently on break until July 2nd.

Pre-orders are now available for book one on amazon, and it will be available on kindle unlimited as of its June 30th release date. Please see the Update post for further information. 

The majority of chapters from book one have been pulled down to keep with amazon's KU rules.  Book two will begin publishing as soon as I am back from my break and will contain a synopsis for book one for new readers.

If you like the story, please comment or favorite.  Each comment goes a long way towards pushing visibility for the story, which means more people get to see it and I feel slightly more validated as a writer.

 Also, lol, after a week of staring greedily at the coveted top 10 in 'popular this week' I hit it right after I pull down book one.  fml.

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.

Author's Comment:

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.

The Dao of Magic

The Dao of Magic

Original Action Adventure Comedy Fantasy Male Lead Strong Lead Magic Xianxia Profanity

Here I am, sitting on a mountain so far away from civilisation it might as well be the godforsaken arse of the world, about to ascend. Can't wait to leave this crapfest of a planet... Turns out that the higher ups decided that an unaffiliated rogue like me is too big of a risk to let run around free.

Seems like this entire cultivation world is a late stage capitalist money making machine for the powers that be in the higher realms, and me stealing the good loot in front of their descendants and sect disciples noses finally pissed them off enough to take action.

First, they sent all the sect masters and hidden dao protectors to off me - which failed, obviously. Heh, afterwards they simply bitch slapped me out of their universe though.

That is interesting and all, but I just woke up in a valley watching some critters murder each other while trying not to freak out about how bad it smells here.

Soo… where the fuck am I?

Because of certain events in his past, Logan Cross isolated himself and did everything possible not to stand out.

Now finding himself in complete darkness, Logan was offered a second chance at life by the dragon goddess Tiamat. To which he replied:

"No thanks. Just make me a panda or something. They have it easy."

Tiamat of course denied his wish, and plunged him in a world where every being of myth not only exists, but they even choose champions called Proxies to represent them in a war that decides who rules the world!


This is a story about a boy who made it his lifetime goal to eradicate the gods!

Watch as he slay gods, demons, heroes, and beasts; and become the Ultimate Evil!

After rushing to help support the Human Kingdom capital against the assault, the magician is met with the sight of his beloved city razed to the ground. The magician fights off whatever invaders he can, using whatever tactics he knows, but he is eventually felled in combat due to the superior abilities of the invaders.

However, death is not the end! The magician reincarnates, awakening as a citizen of the empire which conquered his home!

Author's note #3: Okay, that's the end for me. This is too boring for me to continue writing, and I've gotten back to writing Reborn as a Dungeon Core in an Apocalyptic World. At 26,772 words, this has gotten too boring for me to continue. I'm probably going to take this basic story and rewrite it into something way better w/ longer chapters, but at least I had fun for the six days it took to write this much.

PS - Love the reviews; they're great. Way to go, dude with 22 thumbs up and 0 thumbs down!
