Prologue


“YOUR STORY SOUNDS suspect to say the least, Tribute!”
The Legionnaire locked his gaze with mine in a well-practiced show of mistrust. Once again his eye implant glinted an evil red light, enveloping me in a mesh of scanning beams. The tattoo over my eyebrow began to ache, reacting to the ID process.
I held his gaze and shrugged. I’d told them everything I knew three times already: first to the patrol leader, then to the commander of the guard, and finally to this hulk of a man sporting a full centurion star on his shoulder protector.
Okay, so I’d come round in the A-zone experiencing symptoms of memory loss. I’d barely managed to escape the nuked city via the underground utility tunnels, after which I’d met Tara and followed her to Fort Angelo where I’d been entrusted with the mission to contact the City. After which, I’d gone out of my way to complete it. All of it was the pure unadulterated truth, with the omission of one tiny little detail. The problem was, a lot of the fort’s defenders who could corroborate my story had either been killed in action, were wounded, or missing.

LitRPG classics collection



The following series are classics of LitRPG in Russia. But they made a few fans on the western market as well. If you consider yourself an avid reader of the genre, you've probably read them. But if you're a newbie, try some of the first books ever written in the genre:

Clan Dominance: The Sleepless Ones by Dem Mikhailov

This is actually one of the very first LitRPG series in the world. The first book was written in 2012. It was published in English as The Way of the Clan series (World of Valdira) but recently we’ve re-translated and re-published it. In this series the events in the virtual world and the events in the real world mesh closely together as the plot thickens and becomes more and more dynamic from one book to another. The series has thousands of diehard fans in Russia! Now in English — for every true fan of the genre!

The Way of the Shaman by Vasily Mahanenko

Barliona is a brand-new virtual world which offers everyone the chance to start a new life as a valiant knight, a hero or a beautiful princess. Many people have come here in search of a new identity. Still, for some users Barliona has become their biggest nightmare. They are convicts sentenced to serving their term in virtual reality with their sensory filters disabled. They can feel everything that happens to their character whether it’s pleasure or pain, strain or fatigue. For them, the difference between the real and virtual worlds is so slim that some of the inmates lose all sense of reality.

Mirror World by Alexey Osadchuk

The story unfolds in the near future where humanity is completely consumed by the opportunity to earn its living logging in to Mirror World: a full immersion MMORPG game developed by Reflex International, Ltd. Here, paid account users enjoy full freedom in their new virtual home, sampling a vast range of colors, smells and even tastes, indulging in their ability to fly or experiencing pain from combat wounds. They’re offered an unlimited choice of races and territories, allowing them to go on mysterious quests and missions. In Mirror World, anyone can become a warrior or a wizard, a street vendor or alchemist - provided they can afford it. They can build a castle on a cliff or start a small farm near a calm cozy town - if they’re prepared to pay, that is. But if you can’t pay, you can always take out a bank loan to purchase one of the game’s “daily grind” plans. Which is exactly what Oleg does when he finds out his six-year-old daughter requires urgent heart surgery.

Kapitel 1


Die Halbinsel Yukatan – 8 Kilometer vor der mexikanischen Küste
Der wissenschaftliche Leiter Dr. Jack Greer beobachtete das Herannahen der Helikopter durch sein leistungsfähiges Fernglas. Es war früh am Morgen und er stand auf dem oberen Deck der zweckentfremdeten Ölbohrplattform. Um seine Wangen strich eine warme Golfbrise. Tief atmete er die salzige Luft ein und spürte, wie sein Pulsschlag sich beschleunigte.
Ein Geophysiker Anfang 40, war Jack mit dichten, dunklen, welligen Haaren gesegnet – oder man könnte auch sagen verflucht. Zur Empörung seiner Mutter versteckte er sie oft unter einer schäbigen alten Baseball-Kappe der Houston Astros.

Space LitRPG Collection



Looking for Space LitRPG? Can’t find a crunchy book with aliens, lasers, space battles? We have plenty! I’m happy to present you our Space LitRPG collection:

GALACTOGON BY VASILY MAHANENKO

The virtual world of Galactogon is humanity’s latest achievement. The game’s space settings attract scores of new players with their promise of everything we could only dream of before: the captain’s place on a starship bridge, the cockpit of an assault shuttle or the controls of an exoskeleton suit. The game caters to all tastes while remaining true to itself: whenever you think it has no secrets left for you to unravel, Galactogon would throw another curve, offering you new quests, new friends and new enemies.

REALITY BENDERS BY MICHAEL ATAMANOV

Unbeknown to the majority of the Earth’s inhabitants, humanity has been taking part in a game brought to our planet by a highly developed and powerful Geckho civilization. Participating in it can reap considerable rewards as the technologies learned can positively affect both science and everyday life, advancing them decades. Which is why the participant countries aren’t in a hurry to share their discoveries, preferring to act on their own. The game’s events affect the real world - which is why humanity’s potential defeat might have some disastrous consequences for our planet.

PHANTOM SERVER BY ANDREI LIVADNY

The human race has got access to an ancient alien technology, allowing us to build neural implants which offer gamers unprecedented levels of authenticity. Following their mass implementation, the users’ minds become unable to tell the real world from virtual reality. While promising incredible adventures to their customers, gaming corporations have no idea that the implants’ original purpose was entirely different from what humanity is using them for. The mysterious alien civilization - the Founders - becomes synonymous with a new technological revolution promising to transform the face of planet Earth.
