Old and about to die, Christopher Ryland is digitized in the new beta program offered by the Everlast Corporation. The beta promises eternal life in a video game, but as Ryland is soon to discover, he should've read the instruction manual first.
The corporation failed to mention that it populated his new world with slavers, sadists, supremacists, and one very trollish elf. All right, that last one isn't really their fault. Sure, he might live forever but with a serious lack of RPG knowledge this isn't going to be the fun and relaxing retirement he imagined.
He might not be the world's greatest gamer, but he won't let anything keep him down-not even fish herpes.
