Many years into the future, science has been tasked with finding an alternate mehtod of transportation. Fossil fuels have dried up, much faster than the world had planned. Anarchy had begun to reign across the planet. However, one team of scientists, fueled by fantasy and imagination, came up with a plan. From that plan came an idea and from that idea, the first dragon was born.

A couple centuries beyond the first birth, the dragon wars had destroyed most bastions of civilization. Technology was all but gone from the world. All that was left was to live your life as best as you can. It is here that we join our main character, James, on his road through life. It all begins on his birthday, the day he is considered an adult by empirical standards. At the age of 16, he gets his own salvage liscence and begins to make his own way in life.

Little does he know, the first time he goes out to the claim his grandfather gifted him for his birthday, he would find something that would change the world. Join James as he goes forward on adventures, fights an evil that surrounds him and perhaps even finds love along the way. Perhaps he will even find the answers to questions he has been asking all his life.

So, this novel is a typical op MC story in a xinxia setting, just, he has no mission, yet at least, and just wants to enjoy his life. This story is just me using up some ideas I had while messing around. Of course, there will be a story, not just mambo jumbo. With that said, the storys who insired me to write this are listed below:

I was a sword when I reincarnated

Death March

And here on royal road, great novel by the way: The daily life of a divine soul

As said, they inspired me, I am not trying to steal but create my own one. Should their still be similarities, then i say sorry for my lack of creativity.

This story has no fixed updates as i write when i feel like it. With that said, I hope you enjoy.

Chronicles of Magnus Stone

My name is Magnus Stone. I’m going to tell you about the end of the world. It wasn’t a nuclear apocalypse, a zombie outbreak, or even global warming that ended the world. It was something only the geeks and nerds of the world ever dreamed of. The world became a game.


Author's Note:

This is a story idea I had while writing some chapters for my other story "Tales of a Dwarf-Lord". It wouldn't leave me alone, so I just started writing it. Hopefully it is interesting. It is largely inspired by "The Legend of Randidly Ghosthound" by puddles4623. Which I am currently reading. If you haven't read it, do so now.

Transmigration Retiree

Transmigration Retiree

Original Adventure Comedy Fantasy Reincarnation Harem Magic Xianxia Profanity Sexual Content Gore

"What's that you say? I can never leave this reality ever? Good!" 

 

Ed, was a normal man in a world full of superheroes, so he didn't really have too many complaints when that first truck fell on him. After all he'd read enough comics to know that sometimes things just happen. Besides he'd been old when it happened and his life though lonely had more or less been fully lived. 

The second time around when that one guy pushed him a cliff for the chalice of ambrosia wasn't so cool though and then there was the third time when he was getting used to life as a lady and that crazy goddess showed up out of nowhere and started ranting about purging the demon menace....then some other stuff happened and he briefly got to go back to earth before falling into a coma where he adventured in the world of dreams. 

Then the aliens came and the dream ended and he was suddenly stuck being the AI Overmind for the whole damn star systm. Then the aliens died and because he was all mechanical and what-not he just kind of had to keep on going. 

Forced to continue collecting the materials and data from countless worlds that were destoryed in the process.  


Then there was that whole war with the gods business that followed...mostly because of Ll that world destroying he did.

Anyway, thankfully someone pulled a "rocks fall" on that whole curfuffle, because by the time he was in control of himself again, things had long gotten out of hand. 


Now the powers-that-be tell him that he must spend the rest of his existence in single lonely section of the cosmos. Trapped in a single portion of a single universe. And now he weeps...No worries though, these are tears of joy. 

 

Hopefully this final unending existence he's been given will be the quiet life he's been looking for. 

 


A Man who's seen everything gets abducted by aliens and is converted into an AI that sits at the helm of a fleet of alien ships and behind the computer systems for most their planets. This Alien AI goes to war with the gods and ends up nearly destroying an entire reality. The Angels condemn the troublemaking AI to life as normal child on a far off world....All truth said, the "AI" couldn't be happier. His life's been far too interesting(read: Scary, Inconvenient and Painful) in his opinion and he could do with a bit of normalcy.

The Child of Night

The Child of Night

Original Horror LitRPG Psychological Virtual Reality Strong Lead Anti-Hero Lead Strategy Gore

People play MMORPGs for a variety of reasons. Some, play to escape their dull lives, most MMORPG protagonists play to support their loved ones by fighting inhuman odds to become popular and rich with their hardwork in a virtual universe as opposed to a real one. A lot of times, there is luck involved, specifically when getting items better than almost anyone else and getting so powerful that one is unbeatable. Quite touching really. But this story is different.

This is a story of someone who is happy with their real life. He does not want an escape into a better world, he is not socially awkward and is not bullied incessantly. His survival does not depend on farming monsters to earn money in real life. Xero played just for fun, at least in the beginning.

Independent of the reason why someone would choose to play an MMO, the fact that they have made a choice to do so matters. When having no real need to log in, why continue to play ? 

The need for entertainment can only take one so far, what lies beyond is the realistion of hidden desires. Of doing actions that impact a lot of other people without suffering any real consequences. There is a sense of power in this fact and once that takes hold it never lets go.

THAT is the reason we make this choice, that is the reason we play the game. Everyone else wanted to be someone powerful like a 'Champion of Light' or the 'Harbinger of Doom'. But what happened to Xero did him turn into something that inspired terror or hatred but he did not choose it for those reasons. Sometimes, compassion can lead to a disaster and unbridled slaughter is the only way out.

But, what does one do when confronted with someone who is powerful yet indifferent of its effects ?

What does one do when faced with a Child of the Night ?

For starters, never provoke them...
