One day the entire world fell asleep at the same time. No matter who or where, all people fell into a deep slumber. During that singular moment, a single dream was shared between the disparate members of humanity. It was a dream about creating a new life in a new world. Many people died during the first dream. Drivers crashed their vehicles. Surgeons collapsed atop their patients. Workers fell from rooftops, and many others met their end during the time that the first dream was forced upon humanity.
Despite the tragedy of that day, the strangely videogame like nature of that dream and the world presented therein has caught the world in a web of interest and intrigue. One young man, decides to change his life by living for that strange new world and its untapped possibilities.
Dale Mitchell, your average guy in a below-average job. But, what happens to him is anything but average. After hitting someone in his truck, his world was turned upside down, inside out, and more than fifty shades of grey.
Now, he seems to be something called a World Keeper, and must create and manage his own world. Is this his afterlife, or something else entirely?

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...

Because of certain events in his past, Logan Cross isolated himself and did everything possible not to stand out.
This is despite possessing a body and mind that far surpassed the normal human.
One day when taking his normal route home, through the back alleys, Logan was caught up in an incident that led to him killing a group of men before dying himself.
Now finding himself in complete darkness, Logan was offered a second chance at life by the dragon goddess Tiamat. To which he replied:
"No thanks. Just make me a panda or something. They have it easy."
Tiamat of course denied his wish, and plunged him in a world where every being of myth not only exists, but they even choose champions called Proxies to represent them in a war that decides who rules the world!
This is a story about a boy who made it his lifetime goal to eradicate the gods!
Watch as he slay gods, demons, heroes, and beasts; and become the Ultimate Evil!
A life taken before its time
Through endless dark tunnels and down many holes
Not due to chance nor done by crime
But the whim of a god who handles our souls
Living a lonely life in the States, Vistiel hadn't expected his situation to change for a long time. When his soul is stripped of his body, however, plans change. Thrown into a new world with his old regrets and the memories of a life that is no longer his, he can either embrace this new environment and make a new one here, or suffocate under his past.
Hey! Author here. Chapters post every other day and so far are anywhere from 3.5-6.5k words a piece. This'll be the first story I've ever written but I have a plot in mind and a plan in place. Just let me know if there's anything you'd like to see or if something about the grammar is bugging you. Thank you for reading!
Please keep in mind there will be some minor adjustments made to the earlier chapters as the book progresses. I'm building a story chapter by chapter, so I may/will need to go back and touch up some things.

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?

The year is 2076, and mankind has perfected VR technology, using the Chip, an implant that interfaces directly with the human brain, using it like an organic computer. Age of Anarchy Online (AAO) is the newest game released by Icestorm, makers of the legendary World of Destiny (WoD). Unlike VR games before it, AAO promises a 110% 'Better Than Life' realism experience, and to showcase this, Icestorm announces that AAO will have no 'Out of Character' rules, save for actions like hacking or exploiting system errors. Players can do anything to NPCs and even other players, and there will be no consequences save what one may suffer in game. "Do what thou wilt, but it may be done to you in turn." Mike Greene, better known in WoD as Torgan, a max level Paladin and leader of the Lords of Light, one of the top 'light side' guilds in WoD, now sets off on a new adventure in AAO. -------------------- Author's Note: If you haven't guessed, and the mature tag didn't help clue you in, there's going to be all kinds of nastiness in this story. Violence, language, racism, sexism, sex, gore, vore, and more! If you have triggers of any kind, this is your warning. If you're looking for a nice, heartwarming tale like Sword Art Online, keep looking. There will be 'good guys' as well, but this is a story where Might IS Right. However, if you've read Watchmen and Wanted, and like what you read (READ, not the movies!), then you just may find this story in your strike zone. And for f*ck's sake, this is just a story! Don't take this as an endorsement of any of the actions in this story.
Palan is raised in the harsh world of the demons, depending on himself to survive while raising his sister. One day, his sister falls sick and he's forced to make a deal with an angel in order to save her life. Unfortunately for him, that deal sends him a world away from his sister.
What happens when a ruthless demon is thrust into the world of the heavens above?
The story is complete.

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.
The death of an old dwarf, the reincarnation of an old soul into a dungeon. He was expecting a peacefull, lonely death, and now he is a dungeon. Well, it could be worse, after all, dwarves are at home underground. Now he has to re-discover how to survive in this new life. He and his creations must carve out their place in the world with their own hands.
Note: Currently trying to update every Tuesday week.
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.
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.
My world faced its end, but I refused to perish with it! So I intercepted a summoning ceremony from another world.
One moment!? My summoner tried to summon a demon? Fuck it, I think it's better to break the contract and do my own thing... or not? Why is Mrs. Sacrifice hugging me? And why am I suddenly a child!?
I am not entirely sure how this fiction will turn out. And I am not sure on the tags either. They may change. Bear with it.
As always, how chapters turn out is up to my mood.
Born with a golden spoon in his mouth, Tian Yi is a young man with a status above all and below none.
However, that status came with a price— his freedom.
Tired of being confined in his home for his entire life, Tian Yi decided to leave for the outside world.
This is a story of an innocent young man who is perfect in every way with only one deficiency— his lack of common sense.
AN: This is a work of fiction, all names and places are made up. And please read the tags before you start reading.
Jerome just happened to be at the wrong place (sneaking into a top-secret government facility) at the wrong time (when it was guarded, aka all the time).
Now he's in the game-like alternate dimension of New Australia. It teems with life: humongous beasts, flourishing civilizations, and a bewildering array of lush ecosystems.
Also, every single sentient native species hates humans and tries to kill them (permanently) on sight.
Things look grim, but he has three things going for him:
* A unique ability that lets him impersonate anyone he touches
* A super-hot mentor that's kind of like Gandalf with boobs
* Plot armor, because he's the main character
Will he survive? Duh, plot armor. More importantly: will he stay a child, or will he become the hero that New Australia needs?
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.

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.
Blue mages learn skills from beasts. This is the story of one fortunate enough to be taken in by dragons.
