Eldritch horrors descend from the sky to consume the world. Only a last-minute intervention by a mysterious Hegemony of Worlds saves Earth, albeit temporarily. Skills, levels, and battles with twisted monsters are part of the new reality the survivors will have to face.
Augustus Finn is a young man driving home when the new system is imposed. He is thrown directly into danger as a twist of fate places him in an area designated, by the automated systems of the Hegemony, for the containment and disposal of eldritch energy - areas also known as dungeons. Without the aid of tutorials, or the orientation areas commonly known as "newbie zones," Augustus will have to make his own way to survive in unforgiven circumstances.
He will face monsters, aliens, other humans, and his own darkness as he struggles to grow strong enough to face the countdown to apocalypse.
People Started falling down in pain at first.
Then they saw screens and could sense an energy within them called mana by the screens.
These people could gain skills, cast magic and do the impossible.
Two weeks after, without fail, they disappear, never to be seen again.
It was called the two week curse.
Erik West was a combat medic, he was trying to save his friends lives, then he was blown up, leaving him with just one arm. At first he thought he had an infection, but then comes the news. He has the two week curse.
Let's just see if there is such a thing as healing magic.
Current release schedule:

Du Cha Ming was a normal person. Going with the flow, never making any real decisions. But then as Cha Ming begins to question his place in the universe, a fateful encounter gives him another chance at life. A chance that takes him to a place where he can make his own destiny.
Reborn in an ancient land filled with demons, devils, and angels, Cha Ming finds himself facing challenges he never imagined. He soon discovers that only the powerful get to make choices, and the rest don’t get a say at all.
Prior to his mysterious rebirth, he was left with a riddle, one that will change his life, for better or for worse. But who left this riddle? And why was he sent here?
Cha Ming sets out to find the answers, because if he doesn’t, he may lose himself and everything he holds dear.
Note: This is an Eastern Fantasy series, and the precise genre is Xianxia. It contains martial arts, cultivation, immortals, demons, Chinese culture, and elements of Buddhism and Daoism. The story will be split between several character view points, but the focus will be on the main character and his journey towards immortality.
Now I will tell you what this story isn’t about:
- Excessive face slapping.
- One unreasonable young master after another.
- Unreasonable villains. Therefore, don’t expect the MC to have his provoke skill activated at all times.
- Constantly underestimated MC.
- A morally questionable MC.
If all of these things about typical Xianxia novels bother you, you’ve come to the right place.
Life and freedom. Those desperate desires that consume humanity. As Augustus starts playing Gods' Nature due to coincidence, he finds himself learning more about the world, the people he knows and himself. A thoughtful approach to virtual reality and the nature of life.
*Warning, this story has a slow start as I build up characters and the world. If you are looking for something that dives right into action then this is probably not the fiction for you. If you want believable plot, good development, and character growth, then I welcome you.*
*This work is under constant improvement. Half a chapter every Saturday guaranteed with another half chapter released on Tuesdays when possible.*
Surprisingly, in the fantasy LitRPG genre.
A girls death forms the foundation for a plan centuries in the making. But when she shakes off their control, and forces the plans of beings millenia old to change, can she avoid being tied up as a loose end? With only what she could take with her in her mind, and a new body with surprising depths, she begins her new life in a world unlike her own.
This is my first writing project in almost a decade, so there is going to be a lot of improvements from me as I shake off the rust. And of course, as the world I'm creating comes to life! So if you like the concept, please bear with me, and hopefully I'll reach the high standards I know you have.
Witness the power of my complete lack of any artistic talent! There is now cover art for this fiction. Its just barely better than the default, but hey, minimalism is in, right?
Many heroes are blessed with hidden talents. Some obtained powerful weapons. And a few have obtained a powerful companion. Instead of these things though, I ended up with a talking snail. The world can be a cruel place.
A story of two people in their early twenties, an always expressionless(?) Aya, and cool(?) Tyson. Loves, friendships, and the small moments pile up in this odd(?) love story.
Tyson, suffering from long-lasting unrequited love, meets Aya, an odd, expressionless girl from his classes. As the curiosity about each other draws them together, it slowly sparks a friendship founded on honesty with which the two deal with one another. It is a story about two ordinary college students with their own, small circumstances, and love which blossoms between the two of them.
Check out 1 page comics titled Ay's and Ty's Daily Lives for some funny moments between the two: http://fav.me/dc4q2wf

He continues on through the thunderstorm to pay his respects to his parents but is interrupted by some disturbing texts from his cousin. Arris tries to leave the graveyard, but before he can get to his car he is confronted by a screen which appears in mid-air before him, reading, "Initializing World Server start", with an ominous countdown just below those words.
Just as the server is about to initialize though, Arris is struck by an enhanced bolt of lightning, and the very flesh melted off him. When he comes to after the System has initialized, Arris finds himself in the body of a skeleton, stuck in the dungeon, with no way out for another 6 months. How will Arris navigate this new world?

P.S.: I'm also hosting my novel here and on Novel Updates Forum. Nowhere else for now!
EDIT: The novel is in rework. The original and the new ones are completely different. Where you see [Edited] it means that I'm done with editing the STORY! Whereas where you don't see it, it's in the old style. For now, I'm editing only the style. Once I'm done with every chapter, I'll run through it once again and correct possible grammatical mistakes. The style will be edited until the 45th chapter.
Release Schedule: Tuesdays & Fridays.

Gods, demons, and heroes. Typical MMO fare—or so I thought.
When my guild dragged me into Jeriskyr Online, I expected I’d be playing the latest VR game. Nothing could have been further from the truth. You see, the gods like to trade people. Chosen by the gods of Jeriskyr and betrayed by my own, I found out that this virtual world is all too real.
Now, I must choose between my own people and a cocky incubus.
It should be an easy decision, yet I find my loyalties torn between the tyrannical and backwards Issradian Empire, or the oppressed demon kingdom, Nabyr-zahn. To embrace injustice or betray my own race.
Or maybe I’ll just burn it all down.
I was just a farmer and when my farm was attacked by bandits I fought them off as best as I could, but it turns out a single untrained woman fighting a band of twenty experienced killers doesn’t end well. Thinking I was dead I awoke to find that I had no arms and was only one ft tall. I have been reincarnated as a Mushroom Monster. What am I going to do now?
This will be my first attempt at any kind of written novel or story, I have had a lot of ideas and tried writing some but realized they were too big in scale or too difficult for a newbie. So after thinking about what I could try for my first attempt, I came up with this. The premise is quite heavily inspired by Re:Monster (also more recently Re:lovely) and many other resurrection web/light novels.

What if you were transported to a fantasy world with no special abilities, no OP weapons and no status screen to boost your stats? Never mind finding the dragon’s treasure or defeating the Demon Lord, you only need to worry about one thing—how to stay alive.
A group of young Brits wake up in a strange, fantastical land with creatures from myth and legend. They are given archaic weapons they don't know how to use and told to do their best.
Convinced it has to be some kind of virtual reality RPG, all the people summoned form parties and set off on their adventures, leaving behind the people nobody wants in their group.
Story of my life, thinks Colin.
BOOK 8; Welcome to Shrine Island starts April 2nd.
Chapters released three days a week, Monday-Wednesday-Friday.
We all have dreams of becoming powerful, becoming the cool mage that rules the world, becoming the dashing rogue who steals the entire treasury of a Kingdom, or perhaps, the valiant knight whose prowess on the battlefield is unmatched by all.
However, when the apocalypse strikes, you can only use what you have at your disposal, be that guns, baseball bats, your fists, or maybe, just maybe, shovels.
One young man who goes by the name of Darenzo has just had his world altered into one that is now the focal point of some sort of experiment.
Just at the end of his shift in the recycling centre, a worldwide announcement was made, that not only changed Darenzo's life, but also the lives of all of the Earth's inhabitants.
Can Darenzo survive and thrive in this changed world? Or will his growing madness best him? The answers to these question can only be revealed with time.

This novel is a participant in The Writer's Pledge
Everyone else on the street that day saw a lunatic wearing strange brass goggles, swinging an invisible sword through the streets of downtown Seattle. But Jacob recognized what the man was really doing—playing a game in augmented reality.
The game is called Panmachina AR, and Jacob is offered a job by the game's creator. Putting on his own goggles for the first time, Jacob enters a city he thinks he knows, but the skyscrapers have been replaced with towering monuments to Victorian architecture. Airships float between the buildings, and enemies ranging from steam powered bunnies to clockwork werewolves lurk in every shadow.
Some enemies, however, aren’t creations of the game at all. Every player is racing toward the same goal, which some will use any means to attain. Those who fail, get nothing. The victors, however, get their own stake in the very heart of the game—a place called Steam Whistle Alley.
The year is 2245, and the world has undergone explosive growth in multiple industries. The age of Virtual Reality came long ago, opening up new fields for people to enjoy and seek employment. There were even those that chose to sacrifice their physical bodies, becoming digital existences that lived within internet communities.
But with the age of VR, everyone still dreamed of that next step, the next level of adventure. And after a hundred years, it has finally arrived. The first consoles, known as Seeds, mass distributed among the people, with such realism that they no longer qualified as a Virtual Reality, but as an Artificial Reality. But what happens when things become too real?

What defines endgame content? Is it raiding epic dungeons to take down the strongest bosses there are, or is it facing off against other players to climb the ladder and become the top PvPer? Is endgame content gathering materials and crafting the strongest and most exotic equipment that there is, or is it all about playing the market and amassing more wealth than everybody else? Some people even argue that fashion and minigames are endgame content!
Ryouta has already done all of that. Having spent most of his life playing MMO after MMO, he now finds himself wanting to live a virtual life that is far more relaxed and casual than what he is known for.
To Ryouta, the true endgame is fishing.
