Comment by the author:
Looking at the chapter list, you might have noticed Volume 1 is not there. The reason is that it’s in the process of being published so I’m somewhat restricted in where and how I can post it.
The first volume is now officially on sale. It is no longer possible to get the first volume for free. I am sorry but it was free for a long time and it was time for it.
However if you like to support me you can find th first volume here on Amazon (getBook.at/TheEverlasting)
Compared to other stories on Royal Road this one is faster paced. No artificial extensions of the story by spending forever in generic constructs, like random ranking tournaments, that don’t really matter for the overall plot. That’s the plan anyway. Volumes consist roughly of 30-35k words.
Additionally: I am not a native speaker, nor have I had any formal education in the English language. I am trying very hard to improve myself. If you want to help me by proofreading my story, shoot me a PM and we’ll see if we can arrange something. Other than my thanks and fake internet points I can’t offer anything, though. Yeah, poor student here…
Hey the story is officially ended if i ever decide to continue it will be on another date. The ending is open for anyone to use their imagination. Thank you all for the support. I hope we could meet later in the Everlasting II.
Fed up with a world where science has made every fantasy a reality and people just don’t care about stories anymore, a young video game developer named Kai uses ancient black magic to transport himself into one of his games, titled: Choices.
Disturbed by his powerlessness on Earth, Kai makes sure to give himself the ability to change this new world as he sees fit, literally.
If you were ridiculously powerful, would it be as cool as you thought it'd be?
Would you throw away all your morals and do whatever you wanted?
Would you find happiness? Would you find love?
Or would you end up realizing that…
Absolute power is pretty depressing.

After being approached by the military with a contract he couldn't refuse, JAMES winds up uploaded into a virtual reality game as a beta tester. Waking up in the Great Savanna, James struggles with a less-than-useful interface before he comes across two creatures locked in battle. The shoulder high grass allows him glimpses of a lion-esqu creature fending off a torrent of scales and claws. Sneaking up to steal a better look at the surreal situation, James discovers two things.
1. Getting hurt in the game.... well hurts!
2. This noble race of lion-men, named Martyrs, have almost been decimated by the scaled lizard creatures.
By unwillingly saving the life of a Martyr cub, James is adopted into their village. He grows to love the beauty of the Great Savanna and his adopted game brother, whose life he saved... That is until PATRICK arrives, and the tranquility of the game is shattered.
James embarks on a mission for answers to his steadily increasing list of questions. On the top of that list,
"What the hell happened to the human race, and where is my damn brother!?"

*Note: there is no magic in this story*
I was a normal pupil and lived my daily live with school and light novels as well as a couple of games. I often had the dream of forsaking my world and living in a new world with magic and monster. And after a normal day it happened.... Well yeah, hi this is my first story and I´m extremely inexperienced, so please help me with suggestions in the comment section. The MC is going to be OP and will have a few screws loose. He is not good, but will do good deeds, if he sees them necessary. The story will have sexual contents in booth ways(normal and lesbian) and there will be violence(torture, gore, slave abuse and so on). The inspiration for this story lies in many, many other stories. For example Death March kara Hajimaru Isekai Kyousoukyoku, Tate No Yuusha No Nariagari, Mondaiji-tachi ga isekai kara kuru soudesu yo and many others.
A man gets thrown into an alternate world after what was supposed to a harrowing escape from death. Follow him as he uses his knowledge from his previous life of research to adapt and survive in a place that is void of human contact, only to find out later how absurdly ridiculous his abilities are. Journey alongside this man as he attempts to change the new world for a better place, to turn it into one that he loves. PS, it will follow the reincarnation template very closely in the beginning (what do u expect? this is RRL), but will deviate from it as the story progress Warning: Crude language
In a world of magic, ruled by many warring races, the human kingdoms are being pushed to the brink of collapse. In a desperate bid to gain the strength to stand on an equal footing with the other nations, they perform a forbidden ritual to summon combat slaves from another dimension.
Unluckily for them, Mors Letus, recently named by their world's God of Death, was one of them.
**** Warning ****
This is a re-release (The Summoned) of the first book I wrote in partnership with my brother (who later forced the story to be pulled (It was released on his account here)).
I have started writing my own version of the story (BOM: The Summoned) and will continue to primarily invest in that, though, now I have permission to re-release this one, I plan finish this as I have the drafts and it was close to the end of the first book.
Many characters/scenes and events match/Will match BOM: The Summoned, especially in future arc's (Past Flatner forest). If you don't like spoilers, don't want to get confused between the two stories or hate first attempts at writing (god awful grammar/sentence structure and storytelling), I would advise against reading.
Please Note! I will be pulling my Squire of War and Dragonsign books at the end of the month! So by all means, binge read if you like, and I hope you enjoy :) You guys have been absolutely fantastic, thank you so much for being a part of my writing journey! I'm getting ready to take the next step, and if you'd like to continue the journey with me, please feel free to sign up to my mailing list!
But don't worry, my tentative plan is to continue posting early drafts of my Dragonsign adventures and my litRPG adventures - BEFORE I do the final draft and take them down :). This way, my fans can continue reading here, and those who really liked it can do me the ultimate compliment of checking it out on Amazon as well! (Or just posting an honest review would also by super appreciated!)
Here is my mailing list if you'd like to know what I'm working on next, and as always, thank you so much for giving my stories a shot! http://eepurl.com/cgQzy1
Lynne Hyorn, seventeen years old laziness-personified, manages to enter one of the four prestigious Academies for the Arts of Magic, Skyfire Academy for Magical Arts. However, unlike others, the reason he enrolled was not to pursue Magic, but rather because his father promised him hefty allowance if he manages to enter. His temporary tranquility soon comes to an end, though, as his father is drafted for war and his home is confiscated shortly after, leaving him to sleep on the streets. With no other choice, he decides to finally dedicate himself for the first time in his life, rising up from being just a lowly, Unranked Mage, to the ultimate guardian of the Academy: Skyfire Magus.
A coming-of-age story set in a world of Magic follows young Lynne through the perils of strength, dedication, and world where fist isn't always the answer to every question.

Glossary of terms (may include spoilers): https://freelanceronfire.wordpress.com/skyfire-glossary/
There are virtues and there a vices and there are things that are neither. There are sinners and there are saints and there are people who are neither. There are men and there are monsters and there are creatures that are neither William "Billy" Maddoc is a young man who's neither here nor there. An ordinary, boring, absolutely, unremarkable person, in a world of Magic and Demons and Gods. A young man who simply wishes to spend his days in relative peace. Avoiding trouble as much as is possible. Doing little relative harm. Occasionally trying to make a buck here or there to makes ends meet.
Kei was a menace or called by most, a demon. He gets into bloody fights with others. Which makes him a problem to the common folk and criminals alike. But he can't win forever. So, his life came to a close with another merciless brawl. With Kei trying to take as much of them to hell and in his final moments, he never regretted his decisions in this mad world filled with cruelty. If the world is cruel to you then be more crueler back.
Then he received a second chance in a sword & magic world but with a condition from the Goddess of Death.
To save the Demon race.
Note: It has LitRPG genre included but the stats and skills are arbitrary. He is an OP character and spells will come out the ass. Yeah I know, typical, just let me dream. I always wanted to put out something but I always stalling because procrastination, seeking "perfection," or fear of harsh criticism. Can't improve if there is nothing to give feedback to or I'll be in a spiral of rewrites or starting a new story again.
Fuck it. Just another teleported to a fantasy world story but me writing it.

Elysium Ling is a returnee. She’s been to an alternate world, coerced into fighting their wars, and somehow returned alive.
Now, 13 years later, she finds herself again taken to a foreign world – this time, by her own choice. Not the same world that she returned from, but a foreign world nonetheless. There, struggling in an unknown world, utterly alone, she has a chance encounter with a young lady with a lovely voice. An encounter which would spark a chain of events that would irrevocably shape the world around them.
That young lady’s name is Rosalind. This is her story.

Notes on Relation to Lily Ex Machina
While this story is intended to be a sequel to my first work, Lily Ex Machina (LxM), I will be writing it in a manner that does not require readers to have read LxM to understand it. While having read LxM will likely enhance your enjoyment of this work(I hope), I am intending for this story to be able to stand on its own legs. As such, certain worldbuilding elements that I have expanded upon in LxM will likely be repeated in Seeking Elysium(SEly). As such, for newcomers, it should not be an issue to follow this story without prior knowledge of LxM. On the other hand, for my returning readers, I do beg your forgiveness for forcing you to read through stuff you already know. I’ll do my best to try and make it interesting, but no guarantees of success, I’m afraid.
On the other hand, if you’re a newcomer to this series and enjoy SEly, I do hope you’ll take the time to read Lily Ex Machina as well, if only to get more information of the backstories of some characters.
I will only post completed volumes on RRL; if you would like to follow the story while it is ongoing, you may do so at my website. I update twice a week, on Wednesdays and Sundays. Supporters on my Patreon get access to chapters a day earlier.
When I was born, I was discarded as worthless for I had no sense of Energy currents. When I became the sword of the realm, I was disowned. Now that I was one vote away from passing an edict of equality between Energy users and not, I had my life’s work burned in my hands.
“Who are you to change this world, silly boy?” the true ruler of the empire, the head councilman, asked me.
There could only be one answer.
Elecar Winteridge, 7 B.S. (Before the Scourge)
Ragnarök, judgement day or the day of reckoning. Every religion and cult has foretellings of the final day. For most people it is just an old tale, something to frighten misbehaving children or a tool for scaring the masses.
But for Shea and her world this became a despairing reality. Forests turned into deserts and seas became salt lakes. Continents were smashed together, becoming one or disappearing without a trace. The whole world was covered in the ashes of fires.
When Shea awoke in her shelter, not only was she injured but everyone and everything she knew was gone. All she had left were her memories and the innate talent to use the shaping ability to aid in her survival.

This is story about an unlucky one who found his meaning on a another world after dying over and over again, turning into a half wraith.
This is his tales of him watching Heroes and Unlikely Heroes saving the day.
Like an undying side character, he won't be the Hero for he is only a Hero for one single person only.
This is the story of Augur Presage and his struggle in a world that is 'hell' to him and at the same time the story of the beacons of Hope that sorround him.
In a world seemingly much like ours, the survivors of an apocalyptic event find themselves cornered and outnumbered. In a final desperate attempt to find answers, a crew of scouts is sent south of the Wall.
The MC gets hit by the almighty truck-san and wakes up in the middle of a class, with a female body. Not even summoned nor reincarnated, just waking up with a different body, what's that supposed to be?
Join our MC in his nightmarish life filled with male, male, male, and...magic? there's magic?
Max Hodge used to be somebody. Specifically, he used to a somebody who did the dirty work for the roughest band of super villains in the world. Alas, nobody today remembers super villains and nobody remembers Max. The only thing he has going for him is his indestructable skin, a product of 'on the job' hazards when you work with mad scientists, lunatics and criminals. Unfortunately, being indestructable doesn't mean being invincible.
Now 65, Max is staring down the fact that he has nothing, nobody remembers him and those who do? They laugh at him.
Max's fortunes change when he is suddenly kidnapped by a super villainess called The Accountant. Max is conscripted alongside:
Rico, an ex-super villain apprentice who has stolen some dangerous chemical weapons.
Singer, Rico's homegrown bodyguard.
Gloria, the ex-super villain apprentice to a master thief whose mind hides a dark secret.
Together, these four are going to uncover a mythical vault that may not even be real. Why? Because if they don't the bombs implanted inside of them will finish them off. They'll also have to avoid the U.N.'s hired goon squad, assassins, lethal traps and a whole secret society of villains.
A year and a half after Elizabeth's suicide, Sara Mera's life settles back to normalcy from a battle of depression. Sara's life is thrown back into that pit of darkness when her hand in the suicide is exposed to the world. In a negative state of mind, she meets the girl who was Elizabeth's best friend who is still suffering from her death. Afraid another tragedy will happen, Sara selfishly becomes friends with the girl but never expected that she would be the one who light's up Sara's world in the darkness. Bound by fate and desire the two develop a friendship they never expected and fall in love despite their wishes.
This is also a side story of another novel called Petrichor I've written so a lot of elements are left unexplained. I recommend reading my other Novel, In The Grass for the story of Elizabeth's Character.
Everyone has their own reasons, be it past events, personality or simply company.
But most at some point divulge themselves into videogaming, be it for entertainment or more compettitive reasons.
In this year and age there are many genres of gaming, one specific genre though still holds on tight to the ledge it was pushed to trying to pull itself back up. MMORPGs were once the top of everybody's list, adventure, combat, storytelling and endless grind in one single game. It was a different life for most, as if a parallel world to our own.
You could be a knight indulging yourself in combat, a mage expertly crafting spells of mass destruction or creation. A ranger exploring the land and hunting down prey, an assassin completing contracts and hording the spoils. A troll scamming children out of their hard earned 10 gold and making more hardcore players rage quit for the day.
Or something else.
Kyle was a simple player, he always picked the strangest classes or jobs and his characters almost looked the same. He played for the combat, he played for the grind and he played for his guild but above all he played for the story.
Kyle is a roleplayer, one who enjoys the simple parts of this virtual life. Whether his guild was starting a war or ending one he'd always have his drammatic entrence or exit, his decleration of annihalition or demand of surrender.
After all that? He divulged himself in the game's story, the interaction with NPCS (Non Player Characters) and their advanced AI.
He went through many questlines, many tales of heroics and many more adventurers of legend but one thing always remained true with his character.
Kyle absolutely loved to the play the villain.
But when game turns reality, what will he and his guild of twisted personalities do?
