Reality shifts and Alexa finds herself trapped in a world far darker and deadlier than the one she knew. Her new body is stronger and faster, and she connects to the magic around her, but it may not be enough to protect the scattered remnants of humanity she comes across.

A young man is granted the opportunity to reincarnate with the ability to eat and gain traits.
(The cover image does not belong to me. If the owner so wishes, I will take it down immediately.)
The first two books of the series are out on Amazon:
Book 1: Challenge
When virtual reality becomes real enough that people feel as if they’re being transported to another world, Valia Online arrives.
A man running from his past joins the game to forget it all. Calling himself Jack Thorn, he chooses an undead race, Deathlord.
A mage by choice, and a swordsman by necessity, he soon finds out that he’ll need to use much more than magic and steel to survive; strategy, creativity, and carefully chosen words can often accomplish what simple attacks can’t.
As the game becomes too real and touches a part of him that he’d rather leave buried, he is faced with two questions:
Who is he, really?
And who should he become?
Book 2: Obliteration
Jack is out for blood.
After being manipulated by his family most of his life, and believing an even worse lie for the past few years, he has finally learned the truth.
Now that he knows what V-Soft has taken from him, he’s going to take everything from them, even if the country is destroyed in the process. The plan is to strike from all sides, so that those who still live can watch their lives, and their life’s work be reduced to ashes.
But in digging their grave, will Jack wind up buried alongside them?
The books' chapters here on RoyalRoad are only sample chapters.
Sadly, Amazon doesn't allow me to put them here for free.

Marty had a fairly easy life as a cook for Arctic Storm Entertainment headquarters when he gets an offer from the company to try out a new playstyle for their biggest VRMMORPG, Oblivion Online. Follow him as he makes his way through the game as one of the monster races trying to survive against the forces of light.
Author's note: I will update every Monday and Friday for sure, with the possibilities of bonus chapters through the week if I get extra writing done. I also did a disservice to several of my characters early on. I'm slowly working through a re-write, but it will be a while as I want to make sure I get it right this time around.
Now it's already the third round for the strange chicken loving being that was called Clair, Dexter and Kara. What will it do if it has the chance to roam the world of One Piece? And will it be able to hold on to its love of Kurama? Will the Straw Hats be their enemy, their ally or is there maybe no connection to them at all?
Follow it and see how it builds its own crew and sails the Grand Line, leaving chaos and doing questionable things on her road to the One Piece. But remember, only one thing is sure, there will be chicken!
Yeah, my third story, if you exclude the one shot^^. Hope I won't struggle with a good end, as I have with the others.... But be warned, there is a high chance that I will have to place it on Hiatus for some time. But that won't happen until I reach the current One Piece storyline. And maybe I will kill them off somewhere along the line, remember the Grand Line is dangerous^^.
The cover is made by NBadonK, and remade by OnLin3. The size was not matching RR's standards....
Aster Spinel was never ashamed of what he was. He was a magic nut, a practitioner of its art. He was a researcher with a goal of finding the very secrets of his chosen field. His only ambition was to create a new branch of the ways of the arcane.
He was also a Hermit. A shut-in. A low-life. The lowest of the low. A failure of a Wizard. That was what the world called a Hermit.
He was never ashamed of the title. In fact, he took pride in it. As a man with few friends, he could proudly say that he wasn't an ordinary Hermit.
Of course, sometimes being a Hermit with friends could have a few complications...

As a second wave approaches, a handful of survivors from all walks of life must put aside their differences and band together to escape the pending slaughter while storm clouds begin to gather from within their fragile community. Some who were once respectable in the eyes of society will devolve into madness while the despicable rise to the occasion in a world no longer respecting of persons. It is their world now.

I have taken the WriTE Pledge, meaning that I will see this story to completion, no matter how many eons it may take.
A girl, raised and trained to be a weapon.
Now offered a chance for a better life, will she take it? Will the world let her?
Trying to figure out her lot in life with no other skills than those of combat in a world where conflicts are becomming more frequent, what will become of her?
Some names may have been taken from real life but everything else is fiction.
Ratings and comments would be appreciated.
I put the drama tag but i'm not sure if I actually manage that.
And forgive my grammar for I am not a native english speaker.

A legendary sword is left behind as a legacy by his master, the Godking. Trapped for millennia, the sword's spirit awaits the day he'll be set free. Will his new master be worthy of inheriting the Godking's legacy?
Written by the author of The Blue Mage Raised by Dragons and Demon's Journey.
Dante doesnt know where he came from and is ostracized as a demon because of his appearance. However he has hope, a gift from the Goddess could be his key to freedom. Every year any boy or girl who reaches the age of 14 can receive the blessing of the Goddess and the Status. The Status allows them to freely manipulate the world essence around them and be strengthened through it (yeah, its a status screen).
Pretty much the rest of the synopsis is the prologue, please read it and tell me what you think. I tagged some of the elements i plan to implement in the story, so check there. Also i left gore, profanity, and traumatising content in because i plan on going a little dark at times in the story let me know what you guys think on that.
Im a big reader but this is the first thing that ive written (may suck) go easy on me and give me all the critique you can.
cover is some fanart for devil may cry. I couldnt track down original creator (just a bunch of repost) but if the author is out there, message me if you want me to take it down or give credit
Wuxia + LitRpg
A young man sacrificed himself to prevent his universe from destruction and ended up in an unknown world with a Level System and Monsters he has never seen before.
Ten years…. For ten years, I traveled throughout Yggdrasil with my friends, both old and new. We explored massive catacombs, underground rivers, and kingdoms made entirely of gold. But that time of peaceful exploration has come to an end and the time for action is upon us.
We know what we have to do and for the most part, we accept it. However, recently, a divide has appeared inside our close-knit group. Though not serious enough to cause true issues, it has caused unnecessary tension among the elves.The goblins and I, on the other hand, we know and accept what we have to do to make this world safer for the next generation.
Each monster race has its own royal family and it’s this family that we must either recruit… or assimilate by force, if necessary. For our dream of a peaceful future, where true war doesn’t exist, where children no longer need to be orphaned from monster attacks, and where my wife can live out her days happily…. Even if I won’t be there to ensure her safety.
I know our chances aren’t great and I’ve come to accept that I will probably die long before I see the benefits of our work, but that won’t stop me… Us, it won’t stop us.
The goblins and l will rise to the top and bring the monster races together under one banner, while the elves do the same for the ‘civilized’ races and at the end, if we do it right, the only thing that could stand between us and true peace, is the antagonistic gods and their followers.
If they leave us alone and allow us to live out our lives in peace, then I’ve decided to leave them and theirs alone… However, should they stand in our way or harm any of the people I care about, then even if I have to consume Yggdrasil itself, I. Will. Kill. Them.

This is the Tale of G.O.D. (And how Humanity never reached the Stars)
Antioch is a sheltered being and knows little about the world. Although he harbours his own secrets, he doesn't comprehend the scale of the adventure he is about to embark on. Being locked up in a research station, he is content with his fate, but when he starts receiving strange messages, he suspects that not everything is well in his little world.
When it's abruptly decided that the project has to be ended, Antioch is faced with the large world outside his prison.
He won't like what he finds... and there are powers at play who would love to put the escaped subject back into the box.
But as in so many tales, it's hard to close Pandora's Box once it was opened.

There have been many losers from Earth transported to other worlds who achieved greatness or died in the attempt.
In an Earth experiencing a change driven by transcendental forces, where common animals evolve into fantastical creatures and a common office worker can wake up to supernatural powers any day, a young boy appeared in an area affected by the brunt of that change. A loser from another world who went against the basic scheme of fate and came to Earth to achieve greatness or die in the attempt.
That boy will have to adapt to the new world and its foreign rules while having to cope with a crippled core, memory loss and a growing desire for revenge. That boy will have to learn to evolve.
A few notes here and there. This is a slow paced novel. I'm trying to develop (keyword being 'trying') my characters and things realistically and well. This is a story following a plot and not your usual powertrip. I'm but a noobie writer, so I'll make mistakes and hopefully, with your help, I'll improve and deliver a great story for you.
Cover art is not mine. Just using it because it looks cool and a bit how I want to shape my MC. If the creator wishes that I remove it, I will do so immediately.
Nothing else to say, thanks for reading and enjoy!
Soul dragged into another world?
Dead, ancient temple with nobody around?
Only bones composing a giant skeleton body with an unexpected mental makeover?
Follow the basic rule of thumb: stay calm, assess the situation, find the solution.
It is time to get out, understand what is going on and preferably regain the tastebuds!
Oh, and it seems that Earth is not as quiet and ordinary as it seemed to be.
Lore (characters etc data) can be found HERE.
A group of children captured by an underground society of mages. A core of unknown origin is forced into their bodies changing their very existence. They are no longer simply human, they are something more, something different. They escape their captors to find themselves in a world they know little about, with no allies except each other. So they strive to make more allies, to become strong enough to protect themselves from whatever devious evil hides in the shadows. Their legend starts with a few simple choices, the resulting history they create in the wake of their passing however, it is far from simple.
I do not own this image, but i liked the way it looked. So if its yours please don't sue my ass!
PS, Should anyone want to create a cover for me i'd be forever gratefull, but i will be somewhat picky ;D
So a sad day begins when you wake up to find out you’ve been kidnapped, stashed with a bunch of strangers in a strange place, and you’re riding on a steam train headed God knows where.
An awesome day begins when you kill the crap out of a zombie, survive a train crash, outrun a hungry horde and wake up the next day with super powers.
A freaky day begins when you die without dying and a tank of talking fluid tells you you’re being recruited as a representative of humanity to decide if they’ll fight in a galactic war or get left in the dust.
I love my life.
