Disgardium-4: Resistance by Dan Sugralinov

Disgardium by Dan Sugralinov
Book 4: Resistance

Release - April 29, 2020

Prologue. Taranis

All of Vermillion could be seen from the tower roof. City of the brave and the stubborn, as the local councilor Westwood put it when he greeted Taranis.
City! Taranis spat.
His spit evaporated as soon as it touched the red-hot roof. Only an inwinova who had never seen the megapolises could call Fort Vermillion a city.
Taranis, a level three hundred and thirty-six scout from the Children of Kratos preventer clan, had seen real cities. Not counting real life, he’d spent most of his time in Darant, performing a thorough investigation of the Commonwealth capital’s fleshpots. He’d had the chance to see the Empire’s Shak as well. But both capitals cowered before Kinema, the main city of the Goblin League on Bakabba. It would take more than one lifetime to sample all the forbidden pleasures there.
The green-skinned little creatures were born traders. No trivial middlemen who knew where to buy and who to push their wares on, no. The goblins had a sixth sense for what any intelligent creature needed, be they a dull-witted minotaur, an aristocratic vampire or a poor craftsman from the most distant pit of northern Latteria, and they offered them what they wanted. And if anyone had ever had a need for a type of object, then it could be found in Kinema.

Rogue Merchant by Roman Prokofiev

Rogue Merchant by Roman Prokofiev
book 1: The Starlight Sword

Release - March 23, 2020

Dear Readers,

We’re relaunching this LitRPG series by Roman Prokofiev - or rather, we’re relaunching Book One. Some of you might have already read its previous version released a while ago by another publisher under the title Cat’s Game. The author has completely reworked the book’s first chapters; he’s also already completed Book Two of the series, fully intending to keep the story going. And we fully intend to release the whole series in English.
Rogue Merchant is a classic might-and-magic-style LitRPG series with the elements of manapunk. It’s set in the Sphere of the Worlds: a worldwide multiverse comprised of hundreds of worlds, from horrible Infernos ruled by Demon Lords to mechanical worlds inhabited by sentient constructs, and gigantic markets that have sprouted at the crossroads of trade routes.
Players use astral ships to travel between worlds, otherwise they have to venture into the perilous underground tunnels of the Endless Paths. Dozens of powerful clans share this delicious pie, scheming or waging wars against each other.
The series’ main character is Cat, a wannabe merchant who specializes in procuring in-game valuables to sell them for real money. He is a Free Merchant, which is both his character’s class and his playing style - as well as his preferred problem-solving method. Cat is a cunning trickster who wriggles his way out of trouble thanks to his quick wit and his trading talents. His credo is, “Anyone can be bought provided the price is right”.
Cat starts from scratch, using every opportunity to advance his plans. This book is the story of a common trader’s rise to greatness until he becomes the world’s new legend, the most famous merchant in the entire Sphere of the Worlds.
The series focuses on the economics of a game world, including various trade methods such as regular and auction trading, as well as social and political interactions between clans and players. Plenty of intrigue and espionage, betrayal, trade wars, besieged castles and epic air battles of flying ships - all this has already made the fantastical universe of Rogue Merchant popular with thousands of Russian readers.
Now it’s your turn to enjoy it.

Interview with Dem Mikhailov

Clan Dominance: The Sleepless Ones by Dem Mikhailov is coming in less than a month. We talked to the author who's among the first ones to start writing LitRPG in Russia.

You were one of the genre’s founding fathers in Russia. Could you please tell us how it happened?

Well, I’m actually a veteran gamer. I started playing back in the 1980s, and as long as I remember myself, I always wanted to be able to travel to a game I particularly liked, to talk to my favorite characters and personally fight the villains. Over the years, this dream didn’t go away until it finally came true in my Valdira books. There, my characters don’t just play: they truly live their lives in that state-of-the-art full-immersion MMO game.

There’s a lot of discussion in the English-speaking world regarding the accuracy of the very term “LitRPG”. As one of the people who actually coined the word, do you think you could offer an alternative?

I don’t think it’s very accurate, either. By saying “RPG”, we presume that the reader takes an active part in the MC’s adventures instead of just reading about them being unable to influence the book’s events. At the time, I was trying to choose among several other options but didn’t manage to come up with anything better than this admittedly catchy soundbite.

Spiegelwelt: Der Weg des Verstoßenen von Alexey Osadchuk

Spiegelwelt, Buch 3:
Der Weg des Verstoßenen
von Alexey Osadchuk

Veröffentlichung am 25. Juni 2020

Kapitel 1

Warnung! Sie sind nicht eingeloggt!
Möchten Sie sich einloggen?

Die Nachricht leuchtete in ätzendem Rot. Ich fühlte mich, als würde ich gleich den sprichwörtlichen roten Knopf drücken.
Na ja, so weit würde es vielleicht nicht kommen, aber trotzdem. Ich kannte einige Leute, die viel dafür gegeben hätten, Zugang zu Spielerkonten der Spiegelwelt zu erhalten.
Das war ein weiterer, beträchtlicher Nachteil von „Täglicher Grind“-Konten. Das Bronze-Programm erlaubte einem, vom eigenen Computer aus auf seinen Char zuzugreifen, ohne in die Immersionskapsel steigen zu müssen. Auch wenn das einzige in diesem Modus verfügbare Feature das Dashboard des Spielers war, reichte dieses Tatsache schon aus, um sich freudig die Hände zu reiben.
Jetzt konnte ich wenigstens meine E-Mail abrufen und meine Screenshots auf einen Memostick speichern. Meine Mädchen hatten mich immer wieder bestürmt, ihnen Boris und Strolch zu zeigen, aber bisher war ich nie dazu gekommen.

Freebie: The Fairy Code by Kaitlyn Weiss

The Fairy Code: Captive of the Shadows by Kaitlyn Weiss
is now FREE!

It started out like any other day. How was I to know it was my last day on Earth? You see, on that day, my boss sold me to Doran, the King of Shadows, ally of Chaos, and ruler of one of the three faery courts.
Sounds crazy, right? After all, I’m a geneticist, not a slave.
Before I knew it, I was transported to another world - a world where the very landscape killed most humans. Somehow, against the odds, I survived.
But how?
And why was I here?

I soon found out that the faeries were barren and facing extinction.

The King of Shadows set before me the daunting challenge of finding out why. The consequence for failure? Facing an unbearable fate.

But someone or something was out to stop me....

My search for a solution would lead me to secrets about my own origin and to unexpected feelings for this cruel land and its harsh ruler.

Oh, Chaos! What a wild ride!

World of the Changed
Book 2: Pearl of the South

Chapter 1

Incoming call from Squirrel Derwin.

“So, it sank in? Great, now listen up. If you behave yourself, I’ll agree to trade your girl for a rainbow pearl. And nobody will get hurt.”
“You don’t need a unicorn, too, do you? The kind with butterflies fluttering around inside it, where they poop out caramels?” I replied angrily. Wart had called back just ten minutes after our first conversation, an eternity stretching out for me in the interim.
“Shut up! If you want your sister back, you’ll bring me a pearl. They had them in the pre-release, so you’ve got to be able to find them here, too. And you have nine days and twenty-three hours. If you make it in time, Squirrel lives. If not, she dies.”
“If she dies, you die,” I said with hatred in my voice, a fist pounding the wall in frustration.
“Oh, I couldn’t care less. Without the pearl, I won’t make it ten days, and I’m not going to die alone. You probably don’t want to know what I’ll do to this juicy little thing before I do, either. Are you picking up what I’m putting down, or do I need to give you a little motivation?”
Squirrel whimpered, Wart having apparently turned toward her.
