"There's only one rule...don't get hit."
Ryan's life sucks.
His brother is a jerk, his mom is sick and his legs are next to useless due to a neurological disorder. Oh, and the world ended two centuries ago thanks to a nuclear war.
Now, what's left of humanity live below ground, with the only escape from reality being the massive VR world of Crystal Shards Online.
But even ingame, Ryan's life sucks. Unable to play a combat class due to his condition, he works as a miner, earning barely enough to get by and not nearly enough to afford the operation that will save his mom's life.
When he discovers an item that grants the ability to dodge any attack, however, Ryan finds himself in a unique position to become one of the game worlds most elite and sought after players: a Dodge Tank.
But for someone who's never played a combat class, success isn't so easily had.
Now Ryan will have to overcome his disability and level his way to the top to get a crack at the big leagues and a chance to save his mother.
But winning in the game isn't quite what it seems and the real world consequences are more far reaching than he ever could have imagined.
Ryan will have to navigate this new world and learn quick, because the fate of not just his mother, but humanity itself, may be resting in his hands...
Read Dodge Tank today!

I never thought I'd be killed by butterflies. But here I am...
Edmon Valli was a smuggler, before a freak storm threw him off course and stranded him on a desert island smack in the middle of an uncharted monster zone. Trying his best to survive, or possibly even escape, he stumbles across the find of a lifetime: an unclaimed dungeon crystal.
This is a dungeon-ish story, but without reincarnation or transmigration. I started it as a whim for NaNoWriMo so I may drop it any time after that... or I might not. My current plan is to write until I can reach some sort of conclusion and call it 'volume one'. I hope someone enjoys reading it for now!
All comments, corrections, and criticism welcome.
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.
An Archlich and his band of undead decided to leave their stronghold after doing nothing for a thousand years. Instead of ravaging the lands and haunting the living, they decided to tour the fantasy world which had changed for a thousand years!
Follow the band of necro-tourists explore the world, discovering new inventions, realizing the stagnant state of the world, uncovering a catastrophic event that led to the extinction of a race, joining a heroes' party by accident, and meeting the God of Death itself as they maintain incognito!
The story of a soul seeking new adventure in a new life. A secret wish to find some things he never really found in his old life. Will the universe have other ideas for him again? Warning: 18+ due to violence, language and sexual content Note: The story is complete. A/N: Since people seem to be skittish with the gender bender tag, I should probably mention that it does not play a particularily important part in the story. More in the beginning, less as the story goes on.
A man on his death bed regrets only one thing in his life: not being able to become a wizard. Fortunately he is reincarnated into a world where magic does exist. Will he be able to accomplish his dream? Or maybe fate (the author) has other plans for him…
Clair/Dex is bored of her first life, so she/he decides to end it and see what happens after death. But his/her system has an update and new possibilities arise. Now he/she's going to live as Naruto with some extras, but was it the right decision to change the childhood difficulty from Normal to Very Hard? Read it yourself and see what changes Dex will bring. Here comes the chicken eating and crazy being called Dex. We all hope the Elemental Nations are ready for him. --------------------------------------- My second story, hope it will have a better start than the first one. Clair will be OP, just not as OP as previously. She will also start fairly weak, cause she is a baby..... Have a funny read. There might come more tags, like reader Interactive or Romance, but again I'm not sure. Don't know if I have to say it, but I don't know anything from the Naruto Universe, I only own the new things I introduce and naturally Dex.
You know the phrase, be careful what you wish for? Yes, that one. Half of me hoped that I'm dreaming right now. I had just woken up from a long deep sleep without dreaming, looking at an unfamiliar wooden ceiling and my back is on a rough unfamiliar bed.
My mind is clear enough to tell that this is not a dream at all. A few slaps and pinches help too.
I made a deal and my soul was exchanged with a person from a different world.
Not that I deeply regret what I've chosen but let's go back to last night. All the while I was just harmlessly surfing the net...
Sometimes, the multiverse needs expanding. That's where I come in. But, unfortunately, being a deity isn't all fun and games (and is incredibly complicated), as there are always things working against you. Not even the God of the Multiverses can change that.
Twelve souls were chosen to expand into the void surrounding the known universe(s), and were given a grace period in which they would experience a relatively safe expansion of their domains. Once that period is up, however, they are free to interact with each other...and what lurks in the depths of the Abyss, the Void, and the Primordial Chaos. I am one of those souls. And let me tell you, this shit ain't easy. Between trying to raise mortals into an immortal army, with which I can defend my domain, dealing with my children, and trying to maintain the balance between all realms of existance, I have my work cut out for me. Sigh. Now I know why, back on Earth, gods worked in mysterious, invisible ways. There's just too much to be done.
Formerly called RE: Deity
After sacrificing himself to avert the collapse of his world, Sheng Jiansui, the Quintessence Sword Saint thought that his soul would crumble away, his memory lost to the void. Unexpectedly, he is reborn to a new world as Heifeng Jiansui, a Prince of the Black Phoenix Empire ruling over a Great World!
"In my previous life, I rose to the apex of the Sword Dao! In this life, my Dao shall encompass all there in the World!"
What do you get when you combine Battle Through the Heavens (Dou Po Cang Qiong 斗破苍穹), Long Live Summons (召唤万岁), Shen Yin Wang Zuo (or Sealed Divine Throne, 神印王座), Ze Tian Ji (or Way of Choices, 择天记), Vampire Sphere (血族禁域), Douluo Dalu II: Jueshi Tangmen (斗罗大陆：绝世唐门), Coiling Dragon (Pan Long 盘龙), The Celestial Zone (天界无限), Pokemon (no, seriously, blame Long Live Summons), Tales of Demons and Gods (Yao Shen Ji, 妖神记) and Wu Dong Qian Kun (武动乾坤)? This trashy parody of a martial arts-xianxia-cultivation story, of course!
All Shu Cong wanted to do was learn some martial arts to get a stable career in the military and earn a comfortable income. By some twist of fate, he ends up the disciple of Tian Mo, the legendary Celestial Demon of the evil Heaven and Earth Sect, who is determined to train him to become the strongest exponent in the Hidden Dragon Continent so that he can help take revenge on the other (more evil) sect members and disciples who betrayed him. And thus, under his new master's tutelage, Shu Cong ends up learning the supposedly ultimate martial art technique, Heaven and Earth Formula. Unfortunately, Shu Cong wants nothing more than a simple life, and his talent lies more in summoning and not martial arts?!
Note: Other than 4th wall jokes, this story has absolutely nothing to do with Number One Under Heaven.
Welcome to the world of Insania, a game where you can play however you want! An expansive world ruled by a top tier AI capable of accommodating each and every player and their needs!
Here we follow the story of Richard, and his avatar, the golem Gondorrer, as he comes and plays a MMO in one of the most dificult ways for no other reason than a sudden impulse, and fail miserably a few times before finally getting it right.
Follow him in his adventures, composed by epic monster battles, custom made equipments, bad jokes, not right in the head friend, along with an unhealthy addiction to Monster Hunter, lots of rolling and window-balls!
Okay, this is my first story here and it will probably be full of errors and such since my native language is portuguese, but any and all (constructive) critics are welcome.

Anton Thorn died in an incident of his own creation, his body torn and shredded to pieces.
Yet death and eternal rest did not await him. Gods, from another world, took his soul along many others to their world to fight an overwhelming and impossible foe.
By chance and oversight his soul was missed by the gods, his soul destined to remain in limbo and torment for all eterinity. A few weak and desperate gods took a chance with him and brought him through to their world.
Now sent far away from the battle, in his original body, to a small village in the husk of a dead kingdom. It is now up to him to restore the Kingdom and fight off anything that would threaten him or those he loves; be they human, beast, monster or hero.
Lord Shadow. He fears no King, fear no armies. He go where he please, does what he likes. He is like the wind. He is an eccentric. If he wants to take anything no one could snatch it from him. If he doesn't want, nobody could force him to take it. Some people hate him, some people like him, some people fear him some people respect him. He has no armies or cities or even Kingdoms but no King dare offend him. Who doesn't know the stories of 20 King fighting Lord Shadow in the Stone Gates? Lord Shadow decapitated people head like paddy stalks, drenching the gate red. Or what about the Battle at the Dragon Cliff where Lord Shadow appear out of nowhere and stole in front all the world the Skill Book Dragon Palm, making Ice Queen Katarina to swore a blood oath that she would kill Lord Shadow should they meet. Or how about Slaying Seven General, Riding to Save A Friend? Lord Shadow trying to save his sworn brother from execution defeated the heroes under heaven killing them all, and after he saved them he even dare to return and loot all the belonging of the Generals. Lord Shadow is one man, yet he dares contend with the whole world by himself. Such bravery is admired. Some King wanted to recruit him, others put bounty on him. Yet, if Lord Shadow appears not many Kings have the power to really contend with him. Of course like all stories his stories begin with a humble beginning. This is his story
The world is broken and rotten.
It's supposed defenders are too weak willed to do what is neccessary.
It's leaders are too corrupt to care for those beneath them
If they wont fix this world, then I will!
I will make the world a better place ..... by any means neccessary!

NOTE: English is not my maiden language.
AUTHOR'S NOTE: As I went through the other fictions of Royal Road, I noticed that my style of writing style (slow release, 1 big post) doesnt work well in this site. As such, I'll be experimenting on releasing smaller chapters more often, as this seems to be how the authors of Royal Road does things.
Mind you, my release speed will still be very slow compared to others, but I'll churn out chapters more often than what I used to do.
My name is Nicolas.
Nicolas "Nick" Siegel.
People say I’m weird.
I don’t know why, and the voice in my head won’t tell me.
Oh well, never mind…
You want a cookie? I baked them myself. With love~💕
This is a story about an atypical player in a typical VR fantasy game, (re)written by an author—that's me—who still sucks at delivering synopsises.
Follow the adventures of Nicolas "Nick" Siegel, alias Elric Walker, alias the Wandering Knight, alias the Reckless Imbecile, alias...Victoria—Wait, what? Okay...err...Follow Nick Siegel, a young...man(?) afflicted with mild sociopathy and a worsening case of split personnality, as he tries to make sense of the world around him and travels the virtual reality of Untold Tales, battling against undead butterflies, strange curses, and himself, and maybe find love.
I swear this is a romance!
Also, the [Mature] tag might just be an [Immature] tag.

Real reader's comment:
"World War Chicken has been fought. The area is destroyed, blood has been spilled, and the wrecks of the machines of war lay scattered. Mothers have cried, children have been traumatized, and only holy fire can burn away the foul creations spawned in its wake.
Oh, and a grown man made a complete fool of himself."

"Saying it starts slow is kind of inaccurate. It's more like a long rope attached to a speeding car. Eventually the slack in the line runs out and you're hooked."

This is my first time writing anything publicly so all constructive criticism is welcome, as well as suggestions or ideas. Frankly, I have no idea where this story is going, but I'm hoping to have a ton of fun writing it and having you all read it. But do expect some shenanigans as the story progresses!
In a time before the existence of the present, the gods decided to create a plane of existence where all their creations could exist in the same place. In it, all would be fair, and all gaps between races and technological advancements could be crossed with a single system that the gods had created. Every year, the gods would choose a new race to put in their land, and in this new group of beautifully unlucky people, Alen, his friends, and a few people from Earth have finally met their turn to be tossed into the playground of the gods.
Unfortunately though, Alen was thrust into a forest of corpse-eating bears and horribly smelly undead on his first day, one of the many danger-zones of the continent the gods had chosen to throw them in. It would be easy to say that he simply died within the first day, or that he'd starved to death or whatever, but let's be honest...
That story would be no fun to tell, yes?
(Re-write of my first fiction with the same name.)
