We all have dreams of becoming powerful, becoming the cool mage that rules the world, becoming the dashing rogue who steals the entire treasury of a Kingdom, or perhaps, the valiant knight whose prowess on the battlefield is unmatched by all.
However, when the apocalypse strikes, you can only use what you have at your disposal, be that guns, baseball bats, your fists, or maybe, just maybe, shovels.
One young man who goes by the name of Darenzo has just had his world altered into one that is now the focal point of some sort of experiment.
Just at the end of his shift in the recycling centre, a worldwide announcement was made, that not only changed Darenzo's life, but also the lives of all of the Earth's inhabitants.
Can Darenzo survive and thrive in this changed world? Or will his growing madness best him? The answers to these question can only be revealed with time.

This novel is a participant in The Writer's Pledge
Now we've all heard stories about people who died and were born again with their memories intact. The form of the reincarnator changes from story to story: human, elf, orc, slime, vampire, goblin; you name it, someone wrote it. But what if you were reborn in the most common of houshold objects?
What would happen if someone reincarnated as a fork?
Involves: merciless fork jokes, monsters, magic n' all that stuff, some profanity, maybe some gore (i'll keep it light), fork philosophy, and if you got advice on where to go next with the novel, comment, coz I only got a hazy outline.

Jason Elric used to be an ordinary college student living in the heart of San Francisco. He had a part time job, he played online games with friends he got along moderately well with, and he earned reasonably good grades. The worst he really had to worry about in life was turning in his coursework on time and not being late to class.
Now, though? Now fighting for his life and running from a horde of giant frogs that want to make him their next meal is just another Tuesday.
Thanks to a summoning ritual gone terribly right, Jason has found himself trapped in a world eerily similar to the role playing games games he used to play for fun. Unfortunately for the now ex-college student, everything happening around him is terrifyingly real and if he wants to survive, he’ll have to figure out how to exploit the system for his benefit before it’s too late.
The Voice of the World is the first part of what is planned to be a multi-book, Isekai LitRPG story with crafting elements, set in the fantasy world known as Verdania. This is my first time posting online for public consumption, so bear with me as I work to find a style that people like. While I may occasionally write scenes that may deal with heavy concepts, expect this story to be primarily light hearted high fantasy. There will be a lot of common fantasy tropes involved, as this story got its start as a simple practice exercise, rather than any plan to actually post it. However, it’s grown on me, so I felt it’s worth sharing after all. Thus, if you’re looking for more serious/original/unusual stories, you might want to look elsewhere. For the rest of you, feel free to leave suggestions, as well as to point out grammar and spelling mistakes; I’ll do my best to make edits to correct them.
Updates Monday’s and Thursdays, minimum chapter length ~4000 words.

Did you ever wonder that there might be another world? a world where magic exists? 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 his demise.
The story 'truly' starts with the journey to hell and its seven circles, it is but the beginning of an event that will shake the heavens.
"I shall bring the divine to their knees and call upon the requiem...For it is my task...and my revenge."
(World mythology is included in this story, from Christian: like the fallen angels. The four horsemen the princes of hell, even Celtic, Indian, African, Greek, Hebrew, Egyptian and more. A lot of 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)
Before you start reading the reviews i advise you to read for yourself first, positive or negative reviews might give you a wrong pre based idea on the story, many great stories in this website have horrible reviews and many poor stories have positive ones, you are the judge of your choice don't let others make you refuse a story just because their opinion of it is different of yours.
Btw I am a non-native speaker and have self-taught myself English. So if you find mistakes please help me with proofing.

Oh by the way i just joind the LITRPG group if any of you want to read more work you can head there and enjoy the content
The Red Lands
Starting alone from the bottom can be such a pain.
A story of being transferred to a new world.
If you are looking for a shocking OP character, this is not him.
If you are looking for a young master with abundant wealth this is certainly not it.
Maybe a poor slum child with a hidden past and bloodline. Poor yes, dirt poor. Full stop.
Incredible knowledge. Aside from some skills in business, nothing.
This is just a tale of an average individual trying to make the best of what he has.
An average human salary-man was transmigrated into the body of a boy from the slums. What made it worse was that it was a completely different world. Armed with only basic knowledge from his past life and nearly nothing from his present, he strives to survive.
Curiosity can become a deadly driving force for any human being. It all depends on who is wielding it.
I will try to keep the novel updating as quickly as possible. I write on my website before posting it.
Website can be found at onlinewebnovel.com
This is my tale and am willing to post it on RRL. I have posted my link as proof.
Life and freedom. Those desperate desires that consume humanity. As Augustus starts playing Gods' Nature due to coincidence, he finds himself learning more about the world, the people he knows and himself. A thoughtful approach to virtual reality and the nature of life.
*This work is under constant improvement. Half a chapter every Saturday guaranteed with another half chapter released on Tuesdays when possible.*
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.
Story of my life, thinks Colin.
BOOK 8; Welcome to Shrine Island starts April 2nd.

Rip away your masks, your fears, everything that’s holding you back…Discover the class you were born to play.
When Storm Online Entertainment begins taking pre-orders for its virtual full immersion role playing game Somnia Online, Wren can’t wait to start a new adventure and conquer yet another world. But when the game designates her as a mind magic user instead of the healer she habitually plays, Wren’s whole process is thrown into disarray. On top of that, most members of her guild are in the same boat, playing classes slightly different to those they usually embrace. Snagging that top guild game wide slot — just got way harder.
Her class trainer is suspiciously cryptic, her in game skills have eerily far reaching repercussions, and that rival guild they had a run in with games ago has decided to declare war. With hidden abilities triggered by vague quest lines, Wren arms her enchanter Murmur as best she can. But her psionic abilities directly affect not only her mind, but her opponents as well, and temptation becomes an hourly battle.
As intricate quest lines become more dangerous and the NPCs giving them gain powers from the artifacts, Wren begins to wonder just what sort of program is behind the multiple AIs running the world. Their rival guild chomps at their heels, and does everything they can to prevent Wren and FABLE from reaching the endgame first. When the game begins to mesh with reality, Wren struggles to distinguish fact from fiction. If she can’t make the distinction, the whole world will come crashing down.

(If you've read the story to the latest chapter, then please consider leaving a review).
In the Year 2066 the first VMMORPG full dive game 'Conquest' has been launched. the whole world turned their sight towards this new project that started with full power conquering the world. In almost no time the entirety of the human populace knew of this deep dive full immersive MMORPG game that made people able to live in a world of myths and adventure.
Dave Ruster is a person who wished wholeheartedly to join this world, however, due to some circumstances he was held at the door of this vast world waiting for a chance to enjoy himself with everyone else.
three years after the release of the game was his chance to access it... but the price he paid was by no means small...
This story looks a bit similar to many VMMORPG stories on this site, however, this will only last for the first few chapters. then you will see how vastly different it is from the regular stories. I hope that you enjoy the story.
Disclaimer, This story's Game sittings are inspired by "Rebirth of The Legendary Guardian". just a bit of game settings, not everything. Mainly the "Inheritance" part. you will understand once you read the story. thank you all

********* Author's Note *********
This is my first published book so feedback would be appreciated. A couple of caveats. First this story is about the details, if you don't enjoy reading and finding the easter eggs or just like to speed read through the chapters you will probably not enjoy it. Second for those that do not like the Harem tag I just want to state that this is going to be a matriarchal society and the women will outnumber the men 5-1. That being the case and because of the culture that I imagine would arise from this I felt it fair to put that tag out there. However, the main character isn't going to be picking up women left and right. This is not a typical harem story.
Image was googled so I have no rights to it
Sean Cook was an underachieving attention-deficient teen, content to coast through junior year of high school, until a freak accident grants him the power to instantly assimilate the content of any book at a touch. Suddenly Sean finds the sum total of human knowledge literally at his fingertips, and impossible dreams aren’t quite so impossible after all…
To be taken to another world; isn't that the kind of thing that nearly everyone wishes for once in their life? To use their savvy knowledge of how things usually go in that situation to take advantage, and lead a life where they are the center and in control of their destiny.
But in the stories, the one who is brought ends up with a grand power to help them through. Here, a man is brought to a foreign world as his new character in the VRMRPG, Underworld of Armok, at Level 1. In safety there are few benefits, only by taking risks far beyond his level could one proceed.
Transported to another world, he wishes to do good and be a hero. Accumulating power to help the less fortunate. There's just one caveat; he's a Necromancer, and his greatest source of strength will probably get him lynched.
Another video game/isekai novel. Unfortunately, the MC has crossed over during character creation of a Necromancer and is Level 1. He also lacks the ever so helpful status window.
I plan to update Mondays, at least!
Fair warning, the Friendly Villager Necromancer arc(1) is slow. He does not want to run out into the dangerous world to get killed right after arriving. Sucks to be Level 1, eh? Git gud scrub.
The Thread, in case you get a bit confused about people/places.
[16+] Now probably! For strong language and violence! And anthropophagy and lewd intimations! And stupid jokes and obscure references! And philosophical ditherings and a slow pace! Make peace with the absurd, and come to terms with the terrible!
"It seems I was reincarnated as something that isn't human into a different world... something that drains my sanity when I look into the mirror... and as the child of the demon queen no less. A demon queen who eats humans. And makes me eat humans, too.
This is all just a dream, right?
Well, I'll enjoy this craziness as long as it lasts. Maybe it'll make for a good story at school next morning. It's really a dream, right?
A normal, albeit tomboyish, Japanese high school girl is reincarnated as a monster made up of tentacles, in a world of sword and magic, and beings that drain one's sanity simply by existing. Born as the child of the demon queen, she is thrown out into the wilderness with the condition to return to the demon castle within three years, to have a claim to the throne.
But she does not really feel the urge to do so... or will her secret chuunibyou heart beat faster at the prospect of becoming the next demon queen after all?
In regards to the tags, I know the "harem" one is frowned upon. But the protagonist is female and she's a lesbian, and she isn't magically loved by every girl that sees her while being an indecisive c-word. Give it a try.

Standalone spin-off featuring Senka: Red Mantis and Avenger Doll

Vincent was relaxing in physics class when he and his entire class were teleported into a vast other world, where everybody called themselves cultivators and fought with magical martial arts.
Vincent gained power over plants, allowing him to turn seeds into all sorts of vegetation. He ventures out into this new world filled with phony cultivators to set the record straight. He can make one declaration with absolute certainty, “I am the only real cultivator!”
You will see an overpowered main character with a cheat ability. You will see "comedy". You will see a normal guy who gets teleported to another world. You won't see ruthless MC who turns kills everybody that offends him. You won't see philosophy essays. You will see classic wuxia elements like Qi cultivation and alchemy. You will see good grammar.
It's essentially everything I like about light novels, web novels, and wuxia all shoved into one story.
If you’d like an unholy mix of overpowered main character, wuxia, fantasy, and LitRPG, give The Only Real Cultivator a try.
Min was born in a tribe of Goblins, where she became a hunter due to her great stats. As a hunter, she lived a simply life with her hunting friends, leveling peacefully. But what happens when the Elven Kind discovers a great source of Mithril in their little cave system?
Warning: This fiction will contain great amounts of sex and violence. Goblin society in my story is a carnal one, where everyone has sex with everyone, even there own siblings... maybe parents too, who knows. Min will be subject to gang bangs by her hunting friends from chapter 2 onwards, albeit, willingly. Rape might enter the story in the future and it also might not.
This is a story I write on a whim, just for fun. I can't promise very regular releases, since I work 12 hours every day.
Harem tag is more of a reverse Harem tag, I guess. Although, it's also possible that she will become part of a harem. I haven't really planned anything :P
