They compete for the souls of mortals in a never ending game of power and betrayal. An-Namrud is reincarnated as Aleksandros, the son of a nobleman. But, he is cursed and doomed to a life of suffering and his eventual death. Somehow, he escapes this chain of misfortune and receives unimaginable power. He will get his revenge.

Steampunk Apocalypse!

Steampunk Apocalypse!

Earth suffered apocalypse. All electronics over the world were destroyed. War and famine ravaged the lands. When humanity tried to rebuild, they discovered that most technology no longer worked. The laws that governed the world had changed! Steam technology rose in popularity after the apocalypse. Humanity entered a new golden age. Then, the seven nightmares attacked. Espers with strange powers appeared. Mutants took over most of the world. This was the beginning of the Mana Apocalypse! My name is Edward Tesla and I was born during the Mana Apocalypse. This is my story about trying to protect everything I care about in this living hell. My inventions will defeat the nightmares and save the world! Steam rifles, steam tanks, and steam mechs. My inventions will surpass them all! Extra Note from the author: Some of the early chapters are a bit rough and need rewritten. Most of the long-term fans come from Chapter 21 and up. I guarantee the story continues to improve from there as you continue reading. Political factions, wars, steam tech, mana mysteries, and more. Though the story starts in America, it also visits China, Europe, Africa, and other areas of the world later on. -------------------------------------------------- Note from author: This novel was the winner of the Steampunk writing contest. Chapter Length: Chapters usually average between 2200 to 2800 words. Chapter Updates: Daily Updates.

The Legend of Black Eyes

The Legend of Black Eyes

Planet Hera, shunned by the gods, suffers from constant wars. Bloodshed and conflict rule the four continents. Bandits lurk in the shadows, ready to ambush the weak and defenceless. Sinister beasts roam the desolate lands and forgotten forests. Zedd Darkstar has lost everything, his family, his beloved, and even his own identity. He cheated death only to have legendary mages and powerful deities chase after him. They threw him in Nowhere, a place neither here nor there. Nothing existed in the abyss. Even time had no effect in Nowhere. Just as Zedd thought he’d spend an eternity surrounded by the everlasting darkness, a magnificent creature appeared before him. “What are you?” he had asked. “I am you divine blessing, and your worst nightmare.” “What do you want from me?” “Would you like to cheat death one more time?” ------ Chapter Length: 1.2k - 1.5k ------ This is a work in progress. I am currently in the process of editing my first chapters to make them more immersive, thus more fun and enjoyable. ----- There is magic in the world, but it's dictated by rules that you get to explore during the story. There are no levels or infinite grinding. The story focuses more on the MC using his head, and the powers available to him, to get out of tough situations. ------ This is a work of fiction. Names, characters, businesses, places, events, locales, and incidents are either the products of the author’s imagination or used in a fictitious manner. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, or actual events is purely coincidental.

The Shapeshifter

The Shapeshifter

I would like to thank Silent Scarlettt for the wonderful cover. ------------------------------ A college student of the modern times was asked by a Goddess to be a hero of her world. Can he maintain his sanity amidst destruction, slaughter and betrayal? Or will he triumph against it, to become the hero that he was supposed to be? ------------------------------ I would like to make a few things clear, there would be no harem in this one. I don't think there will be romance in the near future. No OP MC? At least not for now. And mostly, everyone is using their brains. ------------------------------ If you have time please try to leave a review. Would help me a lot ;) ----------------------------- My first book. Hehe Thanks!

Anti-Hero: Journey of Fear

Anti-Hero: Journey of Fear

There is a story where the hero makes friends, completes quests, and saves the world. This is NOT that story. In the VR world of Fate: Experience Acute Realism, the main character cuts his way through both the players and NPCs alike. This story takes a close look at how a true full immersion VR would be played. The setting is an open VR world where the players struggle to survive with a lack of knowledge and the NPCs panic in regards to the Travelers invading their world. The anti-hero of this story is cold and calculating. Sparing no one from his reign of terror he gives into occasional bouts of kindness before he is forced back on the path of blood and tears. For where there is a hero who seeks to bring people together to help the world move forward, there is an anti-hero who brings people together to seize the world for himself. WARNING: This story contains extreme violence, in every single chapter. This story contains references to sex, but no explicit scenes. This story has light to mild swearing. My chapters normally range from 4,000 to 5,000 words. This story does not contain happy endings, middles, or even beginnings.

Abyssal Dark

Abyssal Dark

Avnar, the heir to a flourishing empire, dealt with unbearable loneliness as well as innumerable lies and false truths from his father, the prime senator, and educators during his childhood. This, paired with his incomparable intellect and ability to understand other people, leads him to develop a better understanding of human nature as a whole. As he matures he understands more and more about the world he lives in and the people that inhabit it. The more he ages, the more his hatred and blatant disgust towards the true nature of humanity grows. Can anyone or anything save him from this abyssal dark? Or will he be consumed by his hatred and commence an apocalypse? ——————————————————————————— This story will contain a mana system that I created myself. If I could put a trademark/copyright on it I would because I am pretty proud of it. The /No Harem Sect\ has domain over this novel. There will maybe be a little bit of romance but then again it might not last for long and may be a bit further in the novel. I hate sappy sh*t and if I were to have a love interest for the mc, she would be bada*s and only provide to the merits of the story instead of providing to the demerits. ——————————————————————————— I am quite confident in my grammar and spelling although I may make a mistake or two here and there. Feel free to give comments of tips and pointers or any suggestions you may have. I will read them but there is no guarantee I will use your suggestion. This is my first novel and I will try to do my best. ——————————————————————————— My main inspirations are Supreme Magus by legion20 and The Broken Empire Trilogy by Mark Lawrence. Be sure to check both of those out as they are fantastic examples of good literature that separates itself from common tropes and clichés. ——————————————————————————— Update frequency: For right now, 2 or 3 chapters a week with 2000+ words each (right now on hiatus, sorry about that, life is kicking my ass. I do plan on returning however so stay tuned if you enjoy what you’ve read thus far. 4/9/20). I have a lot of homework and real life stuff I have to deal with on a regular basis. I have a year left of high school and I plan on going to college soon thereafter to get a graduate degree so expect some instability in the schedule for... well... a long a*s time. ——————————————————————————— One last thing——If you don’t like the synopsis or how the mc is turning out or whatever... just leave. I know that sounds harsh but seriously, no one wants to hear your cr*p. If you have constructive criticism that’s fine but if it’s mindless bashing for no reason other than to be outraged then please leave, thank you.

JACOB WILLBREAKER

JACOB WILLBREAKER

Jacob lives in your typical fantasy world, apart from the fact that the world is a ticking time bomb and no one seems to know about it. happiness and freedom are replaced by slavery and mind-controlling of the masses. and the only know God is a giant mouth who eats people as a way of reincarnation. Yet Jacob knows none of this as he grows up in the seemingly sheltered life of the church. Until he kills his father figure and discovers he is something he has always been taught to hate. The MC's mental development in unique due to specified circumstances so he will rarely act like an 8-year-old, and he is slightly sociopathic.I have heavy dyslexia along with with some other metal 'uniqueness' so this whole story is a big F you to it but I am sorry for any and all inevitable mistakes. WARNING: This story contains dark and adult (Not sex) themes. I am also uploading to Royal Road under the same username.
