Are those who spare the lives of monsters weak, or are they kind? Does it take more strength to let an opponent live, or to extinguish the flame of life? For those born in Tartha, the answer is to mercilessly kill that which poses a threat or may grow to become one. Children who fail the rite to prove their worth as hunters in this merciless land are exiled.

A nameless boy travels north. Having failed his rite, he was given the mark of exile behind his right shoulder and sent north to survive for as long as he can. Whether he dies or survives is of no concern to his tribe nor his family. He is but a failed hunter, and one that must find his own path in life – that is, if he can survive.

Nothing is known of the world beyond Tartha’s harsh savanna. Strange, white-tipped shapes rise in the distance as the boy struggles on. A sense of amazement and wonder fills him, fueling his body to continue on and discover what lies beyond that which he knows.

The end is not always the end. Nothing is permanent, and even death itself is merely a transition.

This fact holds true for a certain young man who died quite tragically on Earth. Lucky for him, a new life was just around the corner. A world filled with magic, adventure, and oh so many dangers awaited. Everything would be perfect, if it wasn't for the fact that he reincarnated into a homunclus. An artificial life form said to possess almost zero combat capabilities. An exemplary example of pure breed cannon fodder. Surviving in a world where dragons roam the skies and monsters stalk the lands, wasn't this a bit too unreasonable?

Everyone knows the general story. A man goes about his daily life. He is unexpectidly offered the chance to be the summoned hero for some world that a specific god wants him to save. Our hero accepts and then goes on to save the day. Well, this was the plan until it all fell apart...

 

This is the author here. This is my first story and I am mostly looking to work on this as I have time. I am hoping to have updates done at least once a week. I have a general plan for where the story is going to go, but I would also like to have some audience participation involved. Tags may change as the story develops. I hope you enjoy.

Recently I found myself looking for story about wizards, and couldn’t find anything I would deem interesting (or had to wait for new chapters in few other cases), so I decided to try and write something myself.

Set in world heavily inspired by d&d rules and cosmology, albeit with many tweaks. I decided to not write it in LitRPG fashion, as this often makes the story feel a little bit clunky. Yet if someone's looking for it, he shall see that there is an evil GM rolling dices unseen in the background when characters are taking (some of) their actions to determine their results.

A baby dragon embarks on a journey to fulfill her exiled sire's deepest wish, to become a [PROTAGONIST] and exact revenge on the Dragon Clan that banished them.

The only problem? She was tiny, timid, weak and always hungry.

Zeroth Knight

Zeroth Knight

Original Action Adventure Drama Fantasy Reincarnation Summoned Hero Martial Arts Harem Female Lead Secret Identity Magic Anti-Hero Lead Profanity

Imagine being taken to another world against your will; with your very identity being slowly corroded and overwritten. Imagine that same world demands a life from you, so contrary to your previous one. That is the world Eve finds herself in. This is a tale of her struggles, and a star-crossed love destined by Fate to never converge. This is the tale of Zero, and all.

 Identity and fate are the central themes to the story.

This story is a slow-burn, meant to be nearly 300 pages or more in length, so the plot isn't the fastest to move. It also has lesbian-themed relationships for the majority of its cast. This story sort of falls under, "harem" with the main character being... female and gaining the affection of other females, against the main character's (Eve) will.

Seeing this, the overseer of death and life, Anubis decided that it is time to stop it. Or at least, do so temporarily

Thus, he focuses all the miasma into one truck, drastically changing the matter within and somehow changing the protons and energizing it. Creating a what would be called as a life. Something that is not expected.
