BE A HERO IN THE ULTIMATE GAME
Are you a top-rated gamer?
Then you might have the skills to play the Game … where players are sponsored by actual demon lords, gods, and goddesses, or Lovecraftian nightmares.
Enter Thera, a real kingdom at the crossroads of many other worlds, but with all the augmented-reality interfaces, character progression, and game mechanics that players know and love.
And the stakes of The Game?
Nothing less than Creation–every world in every universe and reality.
So … no pressure.
Thus Hector Savage, gamer extraordinaire, comes to Thera. Nothing can prepare him, though, for the schemes of Abyssal Lords,
rampaging barbarian ghosts, and a host of nefarious forces who want him dead–before he can even make the fifth level!

A few days ago, I was talking with a few LitRPG enthusiasts and we agreed it’s becoming harder to find the time to read all the LitRPG novels coming out. And, then an epiphany: why don’t we take a crack at writing some short stories.
Call it a bedtime snack for brainiacs—LitRPG style. This isn’t to take away from all the great novels in the genre. We’ll surely give plenty of space to promote authors and review books.
Things we hope to see contributed here:
New and mixed tropes;
Links and new discoveries in LitRPG;
And, lively discussions.
We aren’t here to reinvent sites that already have a niche. We’re not looking to steal fans away from other groups either. We’re just trying to add to an already deeply cool community of likeminded readers.
