Title: Dungeon Worlds: A Reborn Online LitRPG Adventure Kindle Edition
The car crash was the last thing I remembered… then I woke up here. Where “here” was felt like an impossible nightmare. I died, but this wasn’t what I’d expected to find when they said I’d meet my maker.
The afterlife is just like a video game, except I didn’t start in a noob world like everybody else. I started out on one of the most challenging dungeon worlds meant only for ancient souls who’ve been dead much longer than I have…
Welcome to Epoc.
I don’t have the right stats for this place, not even a little bit. I’m in complete noob gear with the standard human sword and shield. I don’t even have any crafting skills to make a decent breakfast with the high tier ingredients in this place.
Dying in the afterlife is even worse than dying on Earth. Earth, you only die once, but here, you can die over and over again and each one is just as miserable as the last.
There’s only one way I can survive the cycle, one way to stay sane.
I need a power leveler… and fast.
Dungeon Worlds is Book 1 in a new LitRPG / GameLit series “Reborn Online” filled with unique monsters, challenging crafting quests, and skipping the grind with some much needed power leveling in an endgame world that’ll make you look forward to the afterlife! Just… we recommend building up those stats up first.
–Abigail’s Targeted Tip:
When death isn’t the worst that can happen to your MC, establishing meaningful stakes becomes more difficult. Ask yourself: what does your MC stand to lose? What serves as collateral damage?
