Testeur de trames





« AVEZ-VOUS DEJA JOUE à Boundless Realm ? » me questionna le recruteur d'âge mûr, entamant cet entretien par la question tant redoutée.
Dans l'offre d’emploi, l’une des conditions à remplir était sans équivoque : « Ne doit jamais avoir joué à ce jeu. » Si j'avais répondu « oui », il y avait fort à parier que cela aurait tué dans l’œuf cet entretien.
« Et avez-vous déjà joué à un autre jeu en ligne connu, hum… Timothy ? » demanda-t-il, découvrant enfin mon nom sur l’écran en face de lui. Sa longue journée touchait presque à sa fin. Il devait être fatigué.
« Oui bien sûr. Je suis un gamer depuis près de six ans, maintenant. J’ai pas mal bourlingué dans Kingdoms of Sword and Magic. »

Invasion: A Second Chance by Vasily Mahanenko is released!



Invasion: A Second Chance
A direct continuation of The Way of the Shaman series
by Vasily Mahanenko



Reality is cruel. The rising level of technological development has led to a rising level of unemployment. They're laying off everybody, from teachers to technical servicemen. What's the point of holding onto a person if they can be replaced by an advanced mechanism?

But what are the people to do? How are they to live? Where are they to get money from? There is only one answer – Barliona. The official government project is gathering steam, luring more and more people into its net. Who knows how people will behave when they lose everything?

Brody West is one such person. Unlike most, he doesn't lose heart. A professional project manager with thirty years in the business simply cannot do that. He has a goal, and a clear understanding of how to achieve it. Nobody can get in his way – not the new class, not the strange friend, and not the unexpected foes.

Die Zitadelle von Alexey Osadchuk




Spiegelwelt Buch #2
Die Zitadelle
von Alexey Osadchuk






Veröffentlichung am 30. Oktober 2019



Kapitel 1



„Also hast du dich entschieden?“ Überraschenderweise nahm Weigner die Nachricht von meinem Umzug recht gelassen hin. „Da hast du dir aber was ausgesucht, das sage ich dir.“
Ich zuckte mit den Schultern. „Mag sein. Du weißt genau, dass ich nicht anders kann.“
„Allerdings. Es klingt vielleicht widersprüchlich, aber das hier ist nicht einfach nur ein Spiel. Wir haben alle mit unseren eigenen Problemen zu kämpfen – und haben unsere eigenen Ziele.“
„Ich kann dir gar nicht sagen, wie ungern ich weggehe.“
Das war die Wahrheit. Ich hasste Veränderungen. Die letzten neun Tage hatte ich so etwas wie Großstadtleben genießen können. Ich hatte ein paar anständige Leute kennengelernt. Zugegebenermaßen hatte ich auch ein paar nutzbringende Beziehungen zu den NPCs der Stadt geknüpft. Aber wie Weigner richtig bemerkt hatte, war das hier nicht einfach nur ein Spiel. Es mochte so aussehen, als würde ich spielen, aber tatsächlich war das mein Leben, egal wie virtuell es war.

Königreich der Toten von Pavel Kornev




Der Weg eines NPCs Buch # 2
Königreich der Toten
von Pavel Kornev


Veröffentlichung am 28. Oktober 2019



Kapitel Eins. Flaute



1

DER TURM DER Finsternis war beeindruckend. Geradezu überwältigend.
Die ungeheure Pracht und Größe des tiefschwarzen Obelisken, der die Bucht überragte, ließ sich auch mit den schillerndsten Worten nicht beschreiben. In Wirklichkeit sah er viel —
In Wirklichkeit?
Ich stieß einen Fluch aus und erschauderte.
In Wirklichkeit! Verdammt noch mal! Das Spiel war für mich schon Wirklichkeit geworden! Andererseits … in gewisser Weise traf das ja auch zu, oder?
Ich konnte mich nicht mehr ausloggen. Ich hatte keine Hoffnung mehr, jemals in meiner Virtual-Reality-Kapsel aufzuwachen. Der tote Körper meines Charakters gehörte mittlerweile fest zum Inventar des Spiels. Er hielt mich wie ein teuflisches Netz umschlungen und würde mich erst wieder loslassen, wenn ich wiedergeboren würde.

An NPC's Path: Deadman's Retinue by Pavel Kornev




An NPC's Path, Book 3
Deadman's Retinue
by Pavel Kornev




Release - October 21, 2019




Time left:
29 days 23:59:59...

WHAT’S A LEVEL-99 player capable of doing?
Well, practically everything. For example, he could use the Scroll of Rebirth.
Unfortunately, the player in question wasn’t me...

Barth Firefist
Paladin
Level 99

... but it was my sworn enemy.
Barth would have no trouble ripping all four of us to shreds, and the worst thing was, he knew it. Why wouldn’t he? Goar - who was the most advanced among us - was still a good 25% below him. And Neo was just a weak NPC not worth mentioning. So Barth wasn’t at all afraid of coming up against any decent resistance, apparently intending to trump everything with his first blow.
With a resounding whoosh, a swirling vortex of flame formed around him and shot up, licking the marble of the stairwell and spilling every which way as if it were alive, roaring and howling.

Nächstes Level: Die letzte Prüfung von Dan Sugralinov




Nächstes Level Buch 3
Die letzte Prüfung
von Dan Sugralinov




Veröffentlichung am 15. September 2019


Prolog


Zuerst lässt das Gehör nach. Oder ist es das Gedächtnis? Ich vergesse immer, was es war.
Dexter

MEIN NAME ist Philip Panfilov. Ich bin zweiunddreißig Jahre alt. Aber so richtig lebendig habe ich mich eigentlich nur in den letzten drei Monaten gefühlt. Vorher habe ich mich einfach treiben lassen, wie ein Haufen Scheiße auf dem Wasser. Ich habe gegessen, getrunken, das größte Online-Spiel gespielt, das es damals gab, und ich war sogar verheiratet. Ab und zu habe ich als Freiberufler ein wenig Geld verdient. Ich betrieb einen Blog und arbeitete an einem Buch. Und ich trank Bier – jede Menge Bier, nahezu jeden Abend.
Zu dem Zeitpunkt war ich bereits seit vier Jahren verheiratet. Das viele Bier hatte mich enorm an Gewicht zunehmen lassen. Ich konnte mir die Schuhe schon nicht mehr zubinden und wagte es nicht, in den Spiegel zu schauen. Und plötzlich entschied meine Frau Yanna, dass sie genug von mir hatte. Sie verließ mich.

The Time Master is released!



Interworld Network
The Time Master
by Dmitry Bilik


Have you ever said something only to regret it later? Did you ever break your Mom's favorite mug? Or graze your boss' car in the parking lot, only to be stripped of a bonus later? All of us have those moments when we wish we could rewind time. We'd have done everything differently then!
Sergei is no exception. With only one difference: he is lucky enough to have received the Time Master development branch. So yes, he can now rewind time, albeit a few seconds at a time, allowing him to rectify his mistakes and defeat much stronger opponents. In addition, Sergei gains access to a great multitude of worlds governed by magic. And he also lays his hands on a Divine Avatar which might open up new paths to even more amazing abilities.
Still, everything has its price. Very soon Sergei will have to confront freeloaders who are scheming to steal his new abilities from him. Will he have enough time to face them fully prepared? Are all of his friends worthy of his trust?

Streben nach Verkörperung
von Michael Atamanov




Veröffentlichung am 1. October 2019


Sinneswandel


MEINE SPIELSESSION ENDETE abrupt mit einer Systemmeldung, die besagte, dass mein Charakter suspendiert worden war. Der Bildschirm wurde schwarz und ich wurde kurzerhand aus Reich ohne Grenzen hinausgeworfen.
Es war allerdings keine wirkliche Überraschung, ich hatte bereits damit gerechnet. Nachdem ich mich den Anweisungen des Unternehmenspräsidenten widersetzt und Taisha, die NPC-Diebin, gewarnt hatte, war es unvermeidlich gewesen. Doch was würde als Nächstes passieren? Ich lag in der Dunkelheit meiner virtuellen Realitätskapsel, zählte die Sekunden, bis sie sich entriegeln würde und versuchte, die Konsequenzen meines Ungehorsams vorauszusehen. Wahrscheinlich hatte das Unternehmen von Reich ohne Grenzen mich bereits rausgeworfen, und das war sicher noch nicht das Ende.

Galactogon 3: A Check for a Billion by Vasily Mahanenko



Galactogon, Book 3
A Check for a Billion
by Vasily Mahanenko





Release - August 30, 2019




Chapter One

The Precian cruise ship plowed placidly through the vast vacuum of space. The captain glanced at his console and turned back to the porthole. For the last five years, he had ferried tourists to the system’s asteroid belt and he still found himself mesmerized by the spectacular vista. His passengers’ security did not worry him: the Zatrathi fleet was on the other side of Galactogon, and the treacherous Qualians were blockaded in their home systems and posed no threat to his cruiser. They were deep in allied space, not a single enemy within a radius of twenty parsecs. Of course there was always the chance pirate raid. But even this was less likely than colliding with a stray asteroid. The pirates were weak, fragmented and lacked the resources to mount a raid this deep in Precian space. And if some minnow risked it, the cruise’s escort of a dozen carracks would be sure to put him in his place.

Bedrohung aus dem All von Michael Atamanov




Unterwerfung der Wirklichkeit, Buch 2
Bedrohung aus dem All
von Michael Atamanov



Veröffentlichung am 21. September 2019


Prolog. Mit Feindesaugen

Pa-lin-thu, Hauptstadt der Ersten Präfektur
Palast des Regierungsrates
Kleine Ratskammer

IN EINE SCHLICHTE schwarze Zeremonienrobe ohne jegliche Ornamente oder Verzierungen gekleidet schritt Thumor-Anhu La-Fin majestätisch den beleuchteten Weg zum Podium hinauf. Aus den Augenwinkeln sah der alte Mann die feindseligen Blicke aus den Reihen, die den düsteren, stillen Raum mit Kälte erfüllten. Der Magierführer spürte auch ohne Einsatz seiner psionischen Fähigkeiten die Spannung. Er wusste bereits, wie gierig diese niederrangigen Herrscher ihn verschlingen würden, wenn ihm ein Fehler unterlief oder er auch nur einen Hauch von Schwäche oder Ängstlichkeit zeigte. All diese Magier fürchteten und respektierten nur eines: Stärke. Während Mitregent Thumor-Anhu La-Fin also durch diesen Raum ging, musst er dafür sorgen, dass in seinem stolzen, majestätischen Gesicht kein einziger Muskel zuckte.

Chapter 1

"Foreman Aren, it's a boy..."
The head of one of the most prosperous mining crews in Orchus, Foreman Aren looked deeply into the gloomy gaze of the healer woman who delivered his wife's baby and was sincerely perplexed. What possible reason could there be for someone to tell him this joyous news with such a sour face? But a few moments later, it began to reach him. He was born, but there’s no crying...
"Is he dead?"
Despite being a man who had seen all manner of things in this life, the words didn't come easily to him.
"He is alive," the healer woman answered darkly and quickly added quietly, almost whispering:
"But it would be better if he weren’t..."
Aren squinted his eyes predatorily and took a step forward. If his gaze could burn, not even ash would remain of this witch doctor. Dalia calmly bore the miner's hateful stare and said:

Release - July 3, 2019


CHAPTER ONE


The day started out like any other weekday. Who knew it would be my last day of freedom?
It was a Monday, right after a great weekend camping with my friends. I love the outdoors, and I especially love Golden Lake. The oaks and birches there are huge, maybe even centuries old, and yesterday the air had been clear and especially fresh, with a misty fog emanating from the lake. Lit by the morning sun, it had glowed a luminous golden pink, as if alive...

LitRPG/Wuxia - World 99 by Dan Sugralinov



World 99
Blood of Fate
by Dan Sugralinov



Release - September 9, 2019


Chapter 1. Last Day in the Life of Luca Dezisimu

Luca’s day was turning out average. They’d caught his sister at the market again, trying to steal a couple of soused apples from a merchant. The fruit cost a copper a basket, but to pay the girl’s bail, her mother would have to wash other people’s clothes non-stop for a week. At least an old friend of hers, another washerwoman, had gotten sick and passed her clients on.
That was why it had been two days since Luca last ate when his mother, herself barely staying upright, fed him some hastily cooked broth of potato skins. Nemania Kovachar, the owner of the only inn in the entire district, sold potato skins and similar leavings on the side.
To help his mother collect the bail money, Luca climbed into his wheelchair with her help and slowly rolled out of the hovel they lived in, heading toward the temple. The porch there was always full of professional beggars, but if he made as if he was just rolling by, he might get a few coins.
His mother didn’t even want to discuss allowing him to join the beggars’ guild. She had been and always remained the proud wife of a gladiator. They might live in a hovel on the edge of town now, since his father’s death, but there had been a time when they had a good house almost in the center of the capital, and apart from babysitters, Luca had had a nanny that taught him his letters and various sciences.

Vasily Mahanenko: Shaman is the worst cheater of 'em all


Simon Vale talked to Vasily Mahanenko about writing LitRPG, being a literary agent, getting back to Barliona (with his new series - a direct continuation of The Way of the Shaman) and Galactogon 3. 




Have you read anything interesting just lately?

Recently, I organized two literary contests: a fantasy and a LitRPG, so now I'm busy reading the works sent in for the former. There was a very strong manuscript among them, amazingly so. I think it's going to win. It's a powerful work at the same level as Abercrombie. It does drag out a bit, but I've already contacted the author and he agreed that the book requires some editing in order to pick up the pacing. He's already busy with this, so I hope that very soon we might have a translation-ready manuscript. The moment I started reading it, I realized that all my efforts organizing the contest hadn't been for nothing. I'd never have found this manuscript otherwise. It just doesn't show up in online fiction rankings.

Kapitel 1. Die Halluzination



„Früher war ich auch ein Abenteurer, aber dann habe ich einen Pfeil ins Knie bekommen.“

Skyrim


OBWOHL Mike Björnstad Hagen zum Teil skandinavischer Abstammung war, besaß er so viel Ähnlichkeit mit einem Wikinger wie ein Chihuahua mit einer Dänischen Dogge. Er hatte eine Reihe von Spitznamen wie „Heulsuse Mikey“, „Micker-Mikey“, „Mikey, das Weichei“ oder sogar „Hey, du Schwanzlutscher!“ Niemand hatte ihn jemals „Mr. Hagen“ genannt.
Das einzige Mal, dass das beinahe passiert wäre, war bei einem Termin in seiner Bank, als Hagen versuchte, einen Hypothekenkredit aufzunehmen. „Tut mir so leid, Mr. Hagen, aber Ihr Kreditantrag ist abgelehnt worden“, sagte der Mann hinter dem Tresen, ohne auch nur zu versuchen, sich sein selbstgefälliges Grinsen zu verkneifen.
Mike hätte ihm mit Vergnügen die Fresse poliert, wenn er nur gewusst hätte, wie man kämpft.

Chapter 1

My least favorite things in the world were chicken liver, heartburn, and helping people. No, my parents hadn’t spawned a scoundrel. Its just that Id rather help someone because I want to, not because Im pressured to.
Sergei, hes probably gone to the foundation pit,” my neighbors words added boiling oil to the cup of my already-heated patience.
Masha was only three years older than me, but somehow I ended up addressing her like I was a kid and she was an adult, while she graciously talked to me as though we were equals. On top of that, at age 28 she had two kids, a docile husband, and her own apartment, no matter that it was off the beaten path. In contrast, besides nine pairs of oddly colored socks, I owned nothing in particular.

Disgardium by Dan Sugralinov



Disgardium, book 1
Class-A Threat
by Dan Sugralinov



Wait up! What do you mean, your character’s been cursed? Rotting alive? You’re joking, right? Having said that… could this be the proverbial once-in-a-lifetime chance? Oh… And now that the game’s AI has reclassified me as a potential global threat, it can only mean one thing: we’re not finished yet!

The year is 2074. Alex is a fifteen-year-old student dreaming of a career as a space guide. He  eats, sleeps and breathes stars - but life has other plans. That’s how Disgardium, a new online game, becomes his only means of reaching his goal.

Alex is lucky enough to achieve what amounts to God mode complete with absolute immunity – but that’s only one side of the coin. As an imba player, he becomes a “global threat” - one of the few fellow wayward players whom the game company views as a danger to itself, paying a lot of money to the so-called prevention clans for their elimination.

Prolog


Was für ein schrecklicher Traum! Überall Einsen und Nullen … Und ich dachte, ich sähe eine Zwei …

Futurama


„OKAY, ICH WERDE es anders formulieren. Wie hast du sie umgebracht?“
„Da war dieser kleine Junge … er ist erstickt. Es ist einfach passiert! Und dann war da ein Mädchen … sie ist ebenfalls gestorben … verblutet …“
Der Knall eines Pistolenschusses macht mich beinahe taub. Die Kugel wirft den korrupten Regierungsbeamten zu Boden. In meinen Ohren summt es laut. Nur schwach höre ich Vickys Fluchen. Sie wirft die Pistole von sich.
„Mistkerl, Mistkerl, Mistkerl! Oh, wie ich sie alle hasse!“
Gleb Grechkin, eine bekannte Gestalt in der Kulturabteilung des Rathauses, windet sich auf dem Boden. Offensichtlich hat er es nicht sehr eilig abzukratzen. Seine Wunde ist nicht lebensgefährlich und seine Vitalität befindet sich noch immer im grünen Bereich, obwohl der Debuff durch die Blutung ihre Wirkung entfaltet und den Kinderschänder seiner Gesundheit beraubt.

Adam Online - 2
City of Freedom
by Max Lagno



Release - June 20, 2019
Pre-order on Amazon - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07Q72J7JX

In order to gain access to Adam Online's closed locations, Leonarm needs to max out his level pretty quick. Help comes from the most unexpected quarter: a human/NPC hybrid who has access to all of the game's items and is privy to its deepest secrets.

But Leonard is not alone in this race. The rumors of new locations packed to the brim with epic loot begin to spread among ordinary players. The only known transition point to the new map is being controlled by the Black Wave guild  - the very players who killed Leonarm with a mysterious weapon at the very start of the game. The guild now blocks every attempt to get to the new worlds.

This leads to the greatest clan war in the history of Adam Online: a single guild against all the other clans and players. And they won't hesitate to employ their mysterious weapon, the most destructive force in the entire game world.
Chapter 1. White Spots
I walked along a broad street in Liberty City, guided by a map on my tablet. I saw a multitude of NPCs and players along the way. Most of them were humans, supers and androids. Liberty City was their city. Mechanodestructors didn’t feel at home there. They had their own world in Rim One, the capital of which was the city Mechatron; an imposing conglomeration of highly advanced structures designed specially to support mechanicals.
I didn’t know what bizoids did in Liberty City. I knew little about the race — in my day, few would have thought of becoming such a strange, inhuman creature.
