Secrets of How the World Changed

The most powerful being in the world, the World Monarch, overseeing everything in the world like it was in the palm of his hands. But like all great power, a heavy burden came with it. The 10th to succeed grew tired of it all and wanted to lessen the weight he was bearing on his shoulders, to have a more comfortable life, and to have a family. He decided to split the World into Ten Domains and made his loyal Knights become the Domain Monarchs. Each of them became the Monarchs of Nine of the Ten Domains, with him overseeing only the Tenth. He named the domains from the names of the World Monarchs, including himself. After 36 years of peace and prosperity, a Great Catastrophe occurred, causing each Domain's countries to merge into one complete landmass. People who had inhuman abilities started to show up, and creatures of terror pouring out from who knows where—plunging the whole world into utter mayhem. These vile foreign creatures took over the Three of the Ten Domains, while the remaining are barely holding their borders from the monsters. Everyone looked to the man who was once called the "10th World Monarch", the symbol of authority and power, for guidance through their intense hardships. However, he was nowhere to be found. All hope was lost. The protagonist of the story, born after the formation of the Domains, rescued an old man from a dangerous situation that led himself in harm's way. Being in a vegetative state, he was unaware of everything in the outside world, including The Great Catastrophe. Waking up with the world already in ruins, and people adapted to the changes. The game-like mechanics that only Liu Kai can see will help him throughout his adventures to discover the mysteries of how the world evolved. =========================================== Join our Discord Server using this link (https://discord.gg/vZtfKFx), and you can suggest to the novel to a certain extent that we would allow you.

Humanity’s scientific foundation was not the only one which faced changes; the field of genetics had transformed too.

The Rising of the Anomaly

Following planetary devastatation in the aftermath of WWIII, humanity is driven to the brink of extinction as the world is turned into a nuclear wasteland. In order to prevent humanity from being wiped out by the radiation, a large enclosed dome called the Sanctuary was built during WWIII, saving about sixty million people, a small fraction of the world's population. Overtime, the radiation results in the proliferation of animals that survived and evolved into powerful, vicious creatures known as Mutants. Even as the radiation levels around the world began to drop, humanity was unable to leave the safety of the Sanctuary thanks to the presence of these Mutants, along with the outlawing of creation of weapons of mass destruction. Humanity had no way to fight these Mutants, until... A few decades after the surviving members of humanity settled into life in the Sanctuary, the radiation all across the globe results in an evolution that is observed in all newly born humans. Specifically, they are born with a special energy inside them known as X-Factor Energy, or XFE for short, and by undergoing a certain operation called the Awakening Procedure, some of them could potentially harness and manifest this energy into weapon-like forms, giving humanity a way to defend themselves against the rapidly multiplying Mutants. This new generation were called Paragons. However, only about five percent of Paragons could successfully manifest their XFE, they were known as Prodigies. Paragons that were not Prodigies were sometimes derogatorily referred to as Duds. However, of the ninety-five percent of Paragons that fail to become Prodigies, there was a one in a ten million chance of them developing an ability different to those of the Prodigies. The rare few who achieve this are known as Anomalies. Paragons who want to use their powers to take on Missions to hunt and kill Mutants must first become X-Warriors, professional hunters tasked with eliminating the Mutants. The standards for becoming an X-Warrior are strict, as a result, the majority of these X-Warriors were Prodigies, with hardly any regular Paragons being able to make the cut. Kilzachs is a Paragon who, following a series of unfortunate incidents before getting disowned by his father for not turning out to be a Prodigy, finds himself hitting rock bottom through no fault of his own. Furious and outraged, he finds a glimmer of hope when he realizes that he is an Anomaly, and decides to keep it a secret. Armed with the ability to manipulate time and space, he sets out to prove all those who put him down wrong, by becoming an X-Warrior while maintaining that he's just a Dud with no abilities. Along the way, he does not hesitate to grab any opportunities for revenge...

The Joker, The Trickster, and the Magician

Wolfram Sakimoto, an infamous criminal, was about to be executed in a secret military facility only to survive by a sudden earthquake that struck the whole world and turned it upside down. With the appearance of strange and absurdly powerful monsters, humans started their final struggle to survive this tragic calamity. Wolfram, however, found joy and not despair in this drastic change. A lunatic on the loose, without any morals to uphold, only his thirst to battle the strongest. PS: This story has a relation with RE;Hell Gate and Once Human, Now a Parasite. The Protagonist is eccentric, to say the least, so don't expect any heroic dude. He can be a madman and a hypocrite, if that is not to your taste, then this isn't a story for you.

Now she was trapped in Washington D.C. as western society begins to completely collapse. It's the end of the modern world, but not from a nuclear bomb, biological attack, alien invasion, or even zombies. It had just taken a few words spoken by an angel. An angel that had also killed the President of the United States on live television! Hitomi's first priority is to escape and survive, but her journey will take her across a post-apocalyptic Earth as she trains her body, becomes a soldier, a leader, and ultimately a master of the martial arts. It's a journey of seeking truth: was God's judgment real or an elaborate hoax? Why is she the only one with a special power? And why can't she die?
