    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.

    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.

  • The Genesis System

    The Genesis System

    257 pages by ProfoundMagician

    Genesis. It is the end of countless stories. The end of thousands of universes, billions of planets, and trillions of lives. But what is taken may also be given, as shown in the story of Cael King. A young man of Earth, knowing only a life of study and work in the relentless and endless pursuit of satisfaction. This is the origin of his story.


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Inspired by the system used in The Legend of Randidly Ghosthound. The system is an homage but the characters, world, and story are unique. I will post as often as I can and, given that I am not starting work until July, that should be pretty frequently. If you have any suggestions or comments please feel free to leave them as this is my first story and I'd love to improve both it and my writing style.

    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.

    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~💕

    ...You're ridiculous.

    Oh, shush.




    [Sexual Content] only shows up in side-chapters, entirely skippable if you are put off by or not interested in this kind of things.




    Author's note:

    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 personality, 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!

    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."


     – by Dosahder, at chapter B0-C07.1





    Picked review:

    "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."

    When life ends, many believe a soul is judged.


    If you're a warrior who dies on the field of battle, perhaps if deemed worthy you'll go to Valhalla. If someone was a good person who lived their life faithfully, maybe they'll go to heaven. If there was a wicked being who chose to lead a life of terror and greed, many think that a person like that might just go to hell: but where does a soul that doesn't fit within any of those end up? What happens when a person wasn't really all that bad or good, heroic or cowardly? What happens to a soul, when they didn't manage to do enough with their life to be judged in the first place?


    Well, apparently some of them end up like... this.


    All hail the Tiny Snake God!




    A story of reincarnation, comedy, and the winding path towards existential redemption.

  • The Voice of the World

    The Voice of the World

    675 pages by ashkari

    Jason Elric used to be an ordinary college student living in the heart of San Francisco. He had a part time job, he played online games with friends he got along moderately well with, and he earned reasonably good grades. The worst he really had to worry about in life was turning in his coursework on time and not being late to class.


    Now, though? Now fighting for his life and running from a horde of giant frogs that want to make him their next meal is just another Tuesday.


    Thanks to a summoning ritual gone terribly right, Jason has found himself trapped in a world eerily similar to the role playing games games he used to play for fun. Unfortunately for the now ex-college student, everything happening around him is terrifyingly real and if he wants to survive, he’ll have to figure out how to exploit the system for his benefit before it’s too late.




    The Voice of the World is the first part of what is planned to be a multi-book, Isekai LitRPG story with crafting elements, set in the fantasy world known as Verdania. This is my first time posting online for public consumption, so bear with me as I work to find a style that people like.


    While I may occasionally write scenes that may deal with heavy concepts, expect this story to be primarily light hearted high fantasy. There will be a lot of common fantasy tropes involved, as this story got its start as a simple practice exercise, rather than any plan to actually post it. However, it’s grown on me, so I felt it’s worth sharing after all.


    Thus, if you’re looking for more serious/original/unusual stories, you might want to look elsewhere. For the rest of you, feel free to leave suggestions, as well as to point out grammar and spelling mistakes; I’ll do my best to make edits to correct them. I do my own editing currently, and it’s easy to miss things when you know what’s supposed to be there, so such call outs are highly encouraged.


    Content TLDR: No harems, probably no romance (unless it makes sense for the story later on), definitely no sex (keeping this PG-13 or close to it), limited profanity. Does/Will contain mixes of magic and technology (think Warhammer, Final Fantasy); copious amounts of blue tables; race, gender, and sexual equality concepts; crafting sequences; and (slightly, but not overbearingly) strong protagonists. If you don’t like these things, go elsewhere instead of downvoting people for content instead of writing quality.


    Updates Mondays and Thursdays, minimum chapter length ~4000 words. Sometimes longer, sometimes a little shorter if pacing calls for it.
