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.

4.6A mage is a person born with magic. But having magic does not mean that a mage could immediately wield an element to his heart's content. He needs to awaken first. Join our protagonist, Aeon Morgan, a 19-year-old unawakened mage, as he enters the Magic Academy in search of the secrets to awakening. Release rate: 1-2 chapters/day. -- Hi y'all, I'm yoursexypotato! I think it would be great if I could tell you something about the book so that you would know if it would appeal to your tastes or not before even reading it(Although I would really appreciate it if you give it a try regardless, ehem) Okay on to what I think you wouldn't like. First of all, this novel will start slow. It would take a lot of time for the MC to get stronger and would be close to useless in the earlier part of the story. Second, we have a lot of protagonists. There's a main one, but the story would generally revolve around a group of people. Third, the MC is smart, but not wise. He does a lot of stupid stuff. Okay, I'll stop at three negative points or else I'll kill the novel. On to the positive ones. Aight, one. This is a story about brotherhood and love. A story built from a calamity where people would have their burdens carried by each other. Two, it's about magic. It will start with the conventional magic that everyone knows and would soon evolve into something more. And three, it has an in-depth story with lots of mysteries. Well, all novels have this, but I promise you an experience that would have you thinking. That's it! We'll make it three of each to be fair. I hope I encouraged you to read this novel. I'm working really hard on it. Thank you all. YSP out! -- You can join me on discord if you want to talk about anything casual :) https://discord.gg/nrse2uQ

Follow as one of the greatest guilds of Fate is born, watch as new players burst onto the scene and old legends re-emerge. Come experience the world of Fate! ----------------------------------- Release rate: 3 Chapters a week. I'll do some extra chapters if we hit top 50 or higher. Probably. Scheduled releases on: Mon, Wed, Sat. More chapters may come if I get enough patrons on patreon. I may also be generous and simply release extra chapters if I feel like it. But don't expect that too often ;) ----------------------------------- This novel is primarily about gaming in a VRMMO. The MMO is the main setting of the story. There will not be unnecessary drama in real life. There will not be weird subplots about the implications of VR technology. This is a novel about an MMO setting and I plan to keep it that way. Do be warned that the first ten chapters of vol1 (Fate Revealed) is almost entirely worldbuilding and character development. Hopefully everyone can enjoy the first volume all the same! ----------------------------------- Please review and support the novel!

An American IT with a passion for magic and fantasy died on his 39th birthday as a virgin due to a stab to the gut while protecting a coworker of his. He might as well died a 'Wizard' that needed one more year to become a 'Sage.' Then, like in recent isekais, he was reincarnated in a new world as Soar Osmis with memories of his past life intact. This new magical world of Manara is where everyone has a chance to become an aspiring Magician, be blessed with powers by forming contracts with fairies as Chaperone and Companion, and special abilities called 'gifts,' and it just so happened that Soar was given the 'Wizard' gift at birth. Thus, began the mostly slice-of-life harem isekai story of a man reincarnated in a world centering around the very thing he loved: magic, as he trained and used the knowledge from his past life to carve a path to a new one on his own terms while growing as a 'Great Sage.' Some RPG game mechanics applied with a growing OP MC with humans and demi-humans as love interests. Profanity and little gory violence is included, characters in explicit sex scenes are at and above the legal age (MC won't have such scenes until his new body is around that age). Updates once or twice weekly, whenever. This story is also published on royalroad.com If you'd like to give support for all of my stories, please use one of the following to send your donations.

4.6On a rainy night, Macha is transported to another world. This is a dangerous world filled with mythological creatures that terrorize the Outer-Reaches. Tyr, the leader of the Obsidian Dragons guild, finds Macha and hires her as his secretary. He teaches her many things, while she, in turn, changes his life. Macha learns to fight and use magic while working for Tyr and tries to carve out a new life for herself. On her journey, she fights to protect and assist the friends and lovers she makes along the way. Author Note: Lovers is not a typo, but this is not a harem! It will take a long time for the lovers. I plan on this being a long story that explores the different types of love that exist. Parental Guidance suggested due to occasional use of language, darker themes brought up, violence, war, and sex. I do not go out of my way to make things not for kids, but I do not want to be worried about a child reading this either. ---------------- Daily chapter release.

Fear, curiosity, anxiety, helplessness, powerless, worthless, selfish, being used, being ignored,. isn't cared, isn't loved and more and more and all these feelings are killing him from inside while his life is hitting him harder and harder and breaking his will, his wish to live and keeps knocking him down. So one day he started liking all these feelings and decided that he had enough and says "I WANT TO FUCK THIS WORLD AND BE ON TOP AND RULE IT, I will pay everyone back with double the price. Even god, he needs to pay for his creation." while laughing like a maniac. So I ask you.... Do you believe in gods? They reside in the higher dimensions. And until now we have only discovered 11 dimensions, we cannot go further than that. This is about the world in 5062, land on earth has been reduced to one thirds. Only one continent exists, all of humanity from all regions and ethnicities had to live together on one land. During this chaos, a best group of scientists found gateways on earth to travel to different dimensions. Each dimension is a new world with its own laws of physics and principles, and new elements of nature. *//Editors\\* ๛ Aysel_Inara ๛ NatsumeRikka --------------------------------- Follow me on IG to interact with me, give me suggestions and see the pics of the world and it's characters.

4.7Due to his lack of proficiency at both sword and magic, Arthur was underestimated and mocked. All Arthur had going for him was his affinity for picking up voices but that was practically useless when it did not translate into magical talent. However, everything changed when the young man met his patron in Aoide, the Goddess of Song and Voice. With the blessing from Aoide, Arthur finally started his journey of adventuring with a form of magic that was unique to his own, the Voice Magic. To those who needed his help, Arthur would lend them his voice and to those who underestimated him, Arthur would show them that even the smallest voice could move the world.
