Description: [edit] [history]

Defenseless. Scared. Alone. That describes the life of Brock Carter as of late.

Following his 'death' at the hands of a vicious magpie, Brock is rescued by the machinations of the newly instated, all-powerful System and thrust knee-deep into a brutal world catered only to the strong. Fluctuating between two states of being and trapped within a city ravaged by time, he is told to either seek out the mysterious 'Source', or die trying.

He just hopes he can do it without scuffing his expensive suit in the process.

*****

Honestly, I've just always wanted to write a story. I had a crack at it a few years back, but the entire thing fell apart before it even began. At The Precipice was originally written as a way for me to destress and play with System elements and characters, but eventually I decided that if I was gonna write, why not post it too? Writing's just a hobby of mine, so don't expect this to be at published novel level, I guess, or even anything of relative polish.

Updates every Mon-Tues-Wed-Thurs-Fri

Average chapter length is 2000 - 3000 words

*****

What to expect:

- A semi-comedic/light tone, mixed in with a gritty world and brutal survival (not ever grimdark though)

- An MC that thinks about what he's going to do and why he'll do it, even if his internal logic is lacking. Is a rather rational person, not often influenced by his emotions, but can be in extreme situations.

- A plot heavily focused upon the MC, but one that will branch off to envelope the other characters in the world at times. Often, it's just other people's perspectives of him.

- A story of power growth. While the MC is certainly going to be powerful, even over 100 chapters in from what I've written, he still isn't the strongest being on Earth, let alone the entire Multiverse.

- Lots of gore, vivid fight descriptions, and often times deaths of people, some even somewhat important to the story

*****

Things this story will never have:

- Harems

- An edgy, villainous MC

- An MC that does jackshit about things for 'plot reasons'
