And his peaceful times soon end, as war storms Japan, and in order to protect his peace, he must conquer. Join Gengyo as he walks a blood-stained path toward absolute domination, seizing control of Japan. //Brief extract from one of the battle scenes. Written from the point of view of a samurai landowner, Niwa Nakatane. The hooves grew closer to Nakatane's position and their beating hearts grew faster. Perhaps they could simply remain like that, hiding behind the tree, and allow these barbarians to pass? That way could they not return home to their families? Could they not give their dear wives one final kiss, or share one final story with their enthusiastic youth? Nakatane knew exactly what they were thinking. And as the ground rumbled, and the mounted beasts howled, he was the first man to step out from the trees and make his stand. "OORAH!" Possessed by a furious energy, he thrust out with all the aggression of a war god, puncturing Ochi's stallion through the chest with the sharpened wooden point of his lengthy spear. The mammoth fell from his mount clumsily, his head colliding with a nearby tree root. He ceased to move, and a pool of blood began to form around him. "ARM THESE SPEARS MEN! VICTORY SHALL BE OURS!" He stood in front of the charge of over 150 horsemen, alone. But he did not give a single inch of ground. He met the charge of the next man in line, roaring vengefully, possessed by all the rage and power that had accumulated in his body over these past years. The horsemen shrieked like a pack of hyenas, fanning out, each eager for a piece of the man who had brought down their leader. //I did not create the book cover.

4.6A prince sent into exile, without the means to fight back. A young man trapped in an unfair world, without the status to bring about change. Combined, they will have both means and status. Armed with advanced knowledge from a strange world, will Prince Corco be able to cut through the injustice, regain his birthright and bring enlightenment to the country of his ancestors to create a paradise of true peace, equality and prosperity? “Okay, first step: Let’s make some Brandy.” …that’s a maybe then. Hermit’s Note: My take on the kingdom building genre, which often suffers from weak characters, low stakes and contrived challenges. Buildup will be slow, with Book 1 focused on business managment, Book 2 focused on a battle for succession and only Book 3 getting into the depths of kingdom building. There’s plenty of inventions before that point though, so if you’re here for the clever use of modern tech you’ll find quite a bit to like even early on. Updates three times a week.

In the Year 2269, a boy cursed to live without emotions was born. This boy was 'Special', for his intellect was unmatched by even the combination of HISTORY's Greatest minds... The only drive left in him was Curiosity. Only after 300 YEARS of research did he finally quench his thirst. He had reached his goal... He had gained emotions. Suddenly, a notification popped up. | The last given task has been completed, would the user like to review the 4th dimension? | ... He woke up, without a memory after that point... He looked around and then he realized... He was in another world, in another life, in another body. With the greatest AI on command and 300 years of knowledge, survival should be a piece of cake, right? AN: the fantasy and 'another world' aspect comes a bit later because I want to build the MC's character. Also, I will keep this as realistic as possible and probably not omit any of the sexual stuff (thus, explaining the R-18 tag). This is my first time writing anything in this format so forgive me if you don't like the start, I assure you it will get better. Note: the story is slightly on the slower side and the chapter size get larger over time. The cover art is also made by me.
