"A mash-up of Ready Player One, Lord of the Rings, and Indiana Jones!"
He entered the contest to win cash...
Now millions could die.
Random gigs and ramen noodles... that's how out-of-shape gamer Terry survives the job-starved future of 2044. Until he's accepted into the Path of Relics tournament—the most anticipated virtual reality RPG event of the decade—where he has the chance to win some real loot.
But does he have a fighting chance against the world's top Active-VR athletes? Not to mention the ancient dungeons, puzzles, scorpion-wolves, and all-too-realistic NPCs the game world throws at him. And just how advanced is this "Portal Rig" that lets him physically experience the fantasy world as if he were transported there?
Worse, could his suspicions be true? Are the strange and deadly malfunctions plaguing Manhattan somehow triggered by Path of Relics? Now, outmatched and exhausted, can Terry's mysterious ability to level-up quickly and meager martial arts skills help him avert catastrophe in the real world?
You'll love this LitRPG Lite / Gamelit adventure because of its action, secrets, real-world stakes, and compelling weak-to-strong progression.
Lose yourself in a fantasy world of dead gods, lost civilizations, and forgotten lore, made possible by the advanced technology of 2044.
WHAT I'M WORKING ON RIGHT NOW
I'll update this section every so often so you'll know what I'm currently working on.
Nov 4th, 2023
Revisions continue on Path of Relics: Dark Throne. It's strange the ups and downs of writing...
I've been frustrated, struggling to rework a chapter the last couple of days. I mean, I was really hating this chapter, to the point of questioning major points about the story.
Part of the issue was I needed to work through some world building that could no longer be put off. But after taking the time for that and pushing through, this chapter turned out to be the most thrilling so far! Both in terms of how it developed as I revised, and the action that occurs in the scene.
Goes to show how some of the best rewards are so unexpected.
Touche, Path of Relics. Touche.
