(Cover by Amber Rimkus)
What happens when the great war is over and the 'good' side has won? What happens to the last surviving members of the fallen 'evil' side of the conflict? This is the tale of one of those survivors. Will she try to seek revenge? Will she try to hide her origin and ancestry and live in peace? Or will the universe have something else in mind?
She became a dungeon core.
Everything pointed Delta to murdering her way to success. People were just mana farms, right?
No, that was wrong. Delta refused. Then everything became odd.
About a man who turns into a slime and must survive.
Currently on Arc 2.
No reincarnation. No OPness. No harem. Slight levels of LitRPG.
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?

Lawrence Carstein, a marketing executive from Singapore is a long time player of the VR MMORPG, Ever Dawn. However, a fatal electric surge sends him into another world, a world where he retains his character from Ever Dawn, a Level 99 Guardian in a world full of war, political intrigue and nobility!
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.
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.
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.

However, that status came with a price— his freedom.

AN: This is a work of fiction, all names and places are made up. And please read the tags before you start reading.
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.

In the Year 2066 the first VMMORPG full dive game 'Conquest' has been launched. the whole world turned their sight towards this new project that started with full power conquering the world. In almost no time the entirety of the human populace knew of this deep dive full immersive MMORPG game that made people able to live in a world of myths and adventure.
Dave Ruster is a person who wished wholeheartedly to join this world, however, due to some circumstances he was held at the door of this vast world waiting for a chance to enjoy himself with everyone else.
three years after the release of the game was his chance to access it... but the price he paid was by no means small...
This story looks a bit similar to many VMMORPG stories on this site, however, this will only last for the first few chapters. then you will see how vastly different it is from the regular stories. I hope that you enjoy the story.
Disclaimer, This story's Game sittings are inspired by "Rebirth of The Legendary Guardian". just a bit of game settings, not everything. Mainly the "Inheritance" part. you will understand once you read the story. thank you all

Note: Currently trying to update every Tuesday week.
The story of a girl who finds her life is not what she wanted. So she gets another one.
Schedule: One short chapter a day, seven days a week.
Chapters will be around 500-1000 words. This will not change so if you don't like reading very short chapters wait till the end of the week or even end of the month. Seven chapters a week isn't easy to pull off so please bear that in mind.
This is a VRMMORPG story, but the ones I've read tend to use VR as an excuse to get into a fantasy world and then don't really play up the game aspect other than pulling up a status screen every now and then. To me, MMOs are about more than the fantasy setting.
Bugs, exploits, devs who don't understand their own game, OP classes, over the top nerfs, p2w, ridiculous RNG, cash shop fiasco, lockboxes, raging players, broken mechanics, limited bag space, tedious crafting and above all that, a company trying to squeeze money out if its playerbase while pretending they're just in the business of having fun.
Of course, then there's the orcs and elves.
This story is about finding yourself in a completely immersive fantasy game, but it's also about what a game like that would really be like.
Leon and his father, Artorias, are the last remaining scions of a once powerful and illustrious family of lightning mages. After barely surviving an attack that destroyed their home fifteen years ago, they now live in the dangerous Northern Vales, a desolate wilderness far away from civilization. But those who want them dead are strong, patient, and relentless, and it is only a matter of time before they find the two they seek...
Posted first on my website, wardenreading.com, which will be 4 chapters ahead of anywhere else I post. Expect new chapters every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday around 12 noon CT
I have taken the WriTE Pledge, meaning that I will see this story to completion, no matter how many eons it may take.
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.
Have you heard of 'Alternate Realities'?
My story begins as all others do...
... With a dead man.
I was never a high-functioning person in life. In death, I could only sigh a breath of relief as that trainwreck came to an end. Yet, even for a failure like me there was one thing that I placed all of my pride in. The one creation and accomplishment in this disaster of a life of mine. A sad truth; it was a high-levelled character in a crappy Pay-to-Win MMORPG that was months away from shut down. I loved it simply because it was mine; because it was the one thing I created, cared for and nurtured.
So when a small boy with a metal bucket on his head gave me a chance to redo everything with the one thing I found most precious, I jumped at the chance.
However, there was one thing I didn't take into consideration as I scribbled down my signature. It was the fact that my character was female...
... And so begins my everyday new life in the kind of fantasy that I could only interact with from behind a screen.
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.
