An exercise in Chaotic Neutral
Vainqueur the Dragon
Arrogance has its due
Silver Fox & The Western Hero: Warrior Reborn: A LitRPG/Wuxia Novel
Stranger in a strange land, with white knighting

A cultivator's daydream
Hard Luck Hank: Screw the Galaxy

Grog (The Ebon Blades Book 1)
The Incarnator (Project Stellar Book 1)
Things could always be worse
