Hi Guys n Gals

Just reread Porlocks Transdimensional series on StoriesonLine.
I had forgotten how good some of them are.
Give them a go!

There are only a few chapters in the volumes 21+ translated on royalroadl.com, otherwise you may find a more or less extensive summary to those novels in their forums.

The author knows about those fan translations and he has given his okay for volumes 1 to 20 only. His first try to sell his novels in english ended with the company he sold it to going bankrupt shortly after publishing volume 1. But i guess he still has hopes. On the other side, apart from not having the agreement from the author for 21+ there are also a lot less people able to translate from korean to english than there are for japanese to english.
What does a signature tell us about a person that has a signature significantly longer than the text he posted in his last post?

Pitty = /
oh well i kinda hope that the author allows for more translation of the series

Also found: AlterWorld (Play to Live: Book #1) By D. Rus, similar to SAO, LMS, Ark, etc.
The first book is free on amazon... I immediately bought the second when i finished the first :D
http://www.amazon.com/AlterWorld-Play-L ... 498&sr=1-1

Thanks kinza! Nice find. I read both books, too bad the translation from russian for book 3 isn't til begining of next year.

This is another web fiction translated from japanese, another RPG type fiction. There are almost 5 volumes translated at the moment.

For those of you who need more books to read while waiting I recommend My Path to Magic by Irina Syromyatnikova, its the first book in her trilogy. All 3 are translated already.

Thanks souls, loved arifureta =D ...going to take a look at My Path to Magic now seeing as I just finished another book and was looking for something to read (thanks in advance) =)
I took a look at Ark and Re:Monster, on the same website and both were fun reads =) especially Re:Monster, as it takes a look from the monsters perspective for a change of pace


I also recently came across https://www.fictionpress.com/s/2961893/ ... f-Learning
Its a groundhog day(month) with magic, it has a lot of detail in regards to the magic system so if thats your thing definitely worth checking out =D takes a chapter or two to build up steam but after that its full speed ahead =)

For those of you interested in Legendary Moonlight Sculpture... arifureta and play to live.... Eye Of Adventure: http://www.royalroadl.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=333... great read
or for a change of pace...
A man reincanated into a fantasy world: Mushoku Tensei: http://www.baka-tsuki.org/project/index ... oku_Tensei

enjoy =)

Here are some Royal Road fanfics I enjoy,

Royal Road for Retiree by v4lkyr13
http://www.royalroadl.com/fanfic/99
Very good with a different interaction with some NPC's.

Wild Life by WakingDreamer
http://www.royalroadl.com/fanfic/425
This one is very funny and well written.

Elementarem Vim by Saxenas1
http://www.royalroadl.com/fanfic/64
This one is a great mix of original characters from LMS, and a new main character, involved in the sequel to Royal Road decades after the original.

Chronicles of the Blade By GnomeBob
http://www.royalroadl.com/fanfic/185
This, and others by GnomeBob, are all well written and enjoyable. Been awhile since last update though.


Hope some enjoy these as much as I have enjoyed others suggestions :)

Mother of Learning was very good, thanks - a pity it's slow to update.

There are many fanfics for Royal Road - Eye of Adventure is not one of the good ones, IMO.

Shouldn't you recommend what to read - not what not to read?

Besides that, there are many good works of fanfiction on royalroadl.com to find. Especially the ones from gnomebob, then Royal Road for Retiree, TEC Mage and The Empty Class.

A shame most fanfiction is - especially compared to books or the work of our dearly loved Fel - rather short.

Looking back the conversations in Eye of Adventure do bring to mind stumbling around in the dark walking into walls, repeatedly... but despite that the concepts the author presents I find really enjoyable so personally I give it a thumbs up.


The Morcyth Saga - In a similar vain to arifureta, a individual transported into a new world. I think this may have been posted before but couldn't find it to confirm so... here it is =) again?

Thanks for the recomendations :D
