    Nic Tutt is a good student. He excels at all subjects. But his education serves only one purpose—to gain entry into the Ransom School. 


    Ransom is the most prestigious school in the country. Its alumni are destined to become the future leaders of Ranvar. Politicians, statesmen and, in some exceptional cases, mages. Only the brightest and the best get into Ransom.


    But Nic doesn't care about any of that. He isn't determined to get into Ransom to further his prospects or better his career opportunities. He has another reason to want to enter Ranvar's most famous school.

  • The Iron Teeth:  A Goblin's Tale

    The Iron Teeth: A Goblin's Tale

    1506 pages by ClearMadness

    All the nameless goblin ever wanted was not to be beaten by his masters too much and to eat as much as he could shove into his mouth when no one was looking. Instead, he is drugged and whisked away to the far off Iron Teeth Mountains.


    Will he be able to survive there and evolve into something more than a simple goblin? To stay alive he will have to deal with hordes of deadly monsters, fit in among human bandits, and carve a bloody path through the forests of the North.


    However, first he has to get over his crippling fear of trees, and survive in a place where everything considers him to be the perfect size for a quick snack...

  • The Arcane Emperor

    The Arcane Emperor

    1335 pages by Aternus

    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?

    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.

    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.

  • Savage Divinity

    Savage Divinity

    2500 pages by ruffwriter

    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.

    The whole room is fully ablaze when the fire turns blue and even hotter. And I still keep my hands on the rune, ignoring the sizzling of my flesh. After a while I notice the blue, roaring flames on the other side of the window. At the edge of unconsciousness, I listen to the screams of people as they are taken by the Inferno.

  • The Legend of Randidly Ghosthound

    The Legend of Randidly Ghosthound

    385 pages by puddles4263

    As the system initializes, mixing up geography and instituting levels and stats across the globe, one young man was walking through an underground tunnel. Because of his location, he starts in a dungeon far above his level, with no knowledge or teacher, or Newbie Village to guide him. Without a class, he struggles simply to survive in this world changed by its new connection to the Nexus.


    But struggle he will, for he is Randidly Ghosthound, and this is only how his legend begins...


     


    **Author's Note**


    This started as a way to destress and play with overly complicated stats systems and level systems, and I just kept writing. I don't really take it very seriously, but feel free to read and enjoy.

    An inn is a place to rest, a place to talk and share stories, or a place to find adventures, a starting ground for quests and legends.


    In this world, at least. To Erin Solstice, an inn seems like a medieval relic from the past. But here she is, running from Goblins and trying to survive in a world full of monsters and magic. She’d be more excited about all of this if everything wasn’t trying to kill her.


    But an inn is what she found, and so that’s what she becomes. An innkeeper who serves drinks to heroes and monsters–


    Actually, mostly monsters. But it’s a living, right?


    This is the story of the Wandering Inn.

    Arwyn has just bought Fantasia, the first fantasy-based VRMMORPG, with 99% realism that you can play while you sleep. In the game, she becomes Fey, a moon elf starting in the magical Elvenwood.

    The Earth is changing. Aliens invaded, bringing with them social upheaval, advanced technology and an armada of peacekeeping robots. But Alan, a college student pursuing a now-useless degree, cares little about all of this. He has only one thing on his mind: the Game.

  • Tidal Lock

    Tidal Lock

    364 pages by ResonantIce

    Humanity has finally taken the next step into space. Governments run research stations throughout the solar system while private enterprises mine asteroids for rare metals and exotic minerals. However, space remains beyond the reach of the everyday person. In contrast, virtual reality technology has led to an explosion of full immersion entertainment for the average consumer, and many people turned to VR for the thrill of spaceflight.

    One game, Parallax Gate, lets its players experience living in an interstellar civilization. For maximum realism, its developers created a world solely defined by the players' personal skills and ability.

    Mark Asami, a student of aerospace engineering at MIT, dreams of bringing spaceflight to the masses. To his disappointment, his first year courses barely relate to his interests, so he passes time as Aero Rayne in Parallax Gate with his roommate and their organization, the Temple Wraiths. Before they realized, a chain of in-game events drew them deeper into the game's world and politics than they ever intended to go.

  • The Ascendant: Endless Reincarnation

    The Ascendant: Endless Reincarnation

    144 pages by TheDreamForger

    My name is Richard Brooks. I died while saving a kid.


    Kicking the bucket at 28 was really depressing, you know? There’s so much I still wanted to do.


    But instead of passing on, I was thrust into an endless series of reincarnations. Whenever I die, I earn Karma points based on my achievements and growth. These points can be exchanged for weapons, spells, or other bonuses to make my next lives more interesting.


    “What kills me only makes me stronger!” Or something like that.


    Honestly, it feels like I’m stuck in an RPG. The difficulty setting can be pretty ridiculous too.


    Sometimes all I can do is grit my teeth in frustration as I die an ignoble death.


    But I won’t complain. Even when it’s dangerous and painful, I love life. This is all an opportunity; I’ll do my best, no matter what kind of sadistic fate the System throws at me.


    I will swing the warhammer of justice! Craft and enhance the most amazing artifacts! Overwhelm opponents with a barrage of auto-casting spells! Lead powerful vassals in Domain wars!


    All for the sake of creating an eternal sanctuary.


    With my unique power of Runecrafting, maybe I’ll even become strong enough one day to overturn fate… or at least find out what the hell is really going on.


    It might take a few hundred or a thousand lifetimes, but what’s the rush?


    I have all the time in the world now.


    (Note: R15+ This is the work of a very inexperienced author with a full time job. Please expect an erratic release schedule.)
