The Arcane Emperor

The Arcane Emperor

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

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?

Savage Divinity

Savage Divinity

Original Action Adventure Fantasy Harem Martial Arts Slice of Life

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.

AN: So this is my first attempt at writing, and I'm doing it for self-satisfaction really, but I want a solid story at the end of the day. So I would appreciate constructive criticism, please. I will try my best to update quickly, and it should but relatively quick since each chapter is relatively short, (but well paced, no 20 chapter long fights to be found here) but I'm not going to forgo quality for speed. Thanks for (hopefully) reading. I hope you enjoy my attempt at a novel.

P.S I'm pretty much always going back every day between writing chapters and editing previous chapters lightly and heavily where needed, to continuously try to improve my story. So consider this entire thing a draft and remember to go and check the issue/example you are referring to in your review/comment/message to make sure it is still there, please.

P.P.S I am WRITING THIS FOR FUN, and I write in a way I would like to read, if you don't like two small paragraphs that should be a larger one, then deal with it or don't read. I have a phobia of large articles. (not really, I'm just awful at splitting them correctly in the early chapters, I fixed this later on)

Gachapon!

Gachapon!

Original Adventure Fantasy LitRPG Female Lead Harem Magic Slice of Life Strong Lead Supernatural

#### is an expert hikikomori millionaire, and one of societies lesser known ESPers with an ability that is not well understood.

And that is exactly how she likes it.

However when she scores the Ultimate Secret Prize from a gachapon in her favorite game she gets transported to a 3d anime world with the same mechanics as the game!

Of course, though her character build is 'risky', for her it becomes the ultimate, undefeatable class!

[[ This story is a cliche, nothing new is being done here. It's just an OP character exploring and enjoying the world she was sent to ]]

*\\ NOTES: This is something I am doing for fun. You can tell me your opinions, but don't gripe and be lame. If you don't want to read a popcorn story, don't read this story.

What if you were transported to a fantasy world with no special abilities, no OP weapons and no status screen to boost your stats? Never mind finding the dragon’s treasure or defeating the Demon Lord, you only need to worry about one thing—how to stay alive.

A group of young Brits wake up in a strange, fantastical land with creatures from myth and legend. They are given archaic weapons they don't know how to use and told to do their best.

Convinced it has to be some kind of virtual reality RPG, all the people summoned form parties and set off on their adventures, leaving behind the people nobody wants in their group.

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.

[window]Author's Comment:

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.

My world faced its end, but I refused to perish with it! So I intercepted a summoning ceremony from another world.
One moment!? My summoner tried to summon a demon? Fuck it, I think it's better to break the contract and do my own thing... or not? Why is Mrs. Sacrifice hugging me? And why am I suddenly a child!?

I am not entirely sure how this fiction will turn out. And I am not sure on the tags either. They may change. Bear with it.
As always, how chapters turn out is up to my mood.

An another world story where its journey starts with advanced technology rather than god's blessing. A blend of Sci-Fi and otherworldly magical adventure, game elements early access and adult romance as a dlc, a story to satisfy my own brain.

 

World Seed

World Seed

Original Action Adventure Comedy Fantasy LitRPG Romance Sci-fi Magic Male Lead Reader interactive Slice of Life Supernatural Virtual Reality

The year is 2245, and the world has undergone explosive growth in multiple industries. The age of Virtual Reality came long ago, opening up new fields for people to enjoy and seek employment. There were even those that chose to sacrifice their physical bodies, becoming digital existences that lived within internet communities.

But with the age of VR, everyone still dreamed of that next step, the next level of adventure. And after a hundred years, it has finally arrived. The first consoles, known as Seeds, mass distributed among the people, with such realism that they no longer qualified as a Virtual Reality, but as an Artificial Reality. But what happens when things become too real?

The Botched Summoning

The Botched Summoning

Original Action Adventure Fantasy Non-Human lead Slice of Life Summoned Hero Supernatural

People know of the Summoning Ritual: it brings the greatest of heroes in a new world to defeat the evil at the horizon! High and mighty adventurers, guardians of light, here to defend the oppressed humanity from their despicable foes. But what if the plea, the 'desperate' call for help, was met with contempt and disdain ? What would happen if the ritual fails? What horrid things could come out of a botched ritual? A man can personify the most feared beast known of man while being the sole hope of the kingdom. Emotions can cloud even gods judgement. Balance of power if a fragile thing, oaths and scorn can disturb it easily. This is the story of Fafnir as he has to survive his new life. But things are not always as they appear." i want to thank mejinzs for his gift of cover art, and both rouge and mejinzs for the proofreading support and rouge for the help with the abstract R15+ for violence... i guess and possible strong language... i guess (doing this as a better safe than sorry sort of deal.) now posting on my blogspot site as well (https://talesoftheforgottenslayer.wordpress.com/)

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

This is despite possessing a body and mind that far surpassed the normal human. 

One day when taking his normal route home, through the back alleys, Logan was caught up in an incident that led to him killing a group of men before dying himself. 

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!
