A Marine turned Greek God. An Army of Beautiful Amazons. One Final Battle against Death Itself.
Jacob Merely has secured the ultimate weapon against evil, the Crystal Scythe, and now it’s time for him to bring the fight to Hades himself.
Unfortunately, Earl Necro Earl and his undead forces stand in the way, so if Jacob is going to defeat the god of death, he’s going to have to take out Earl first. Knocking Earl’s teeth into the back of his throat? Yeah, Jacob is totally okay with that.
And when a mysterious new woman arrives unexpectedly at their gates with no memory of who she is-but seems to know of a secret passageway into the heart of the Temple of Hades-Jacob finally has the last piece of the puzzle. But with every new battle won, Jacob is tempted to give into the rage and arrogance that consumed Ares.
Can Jacob resist the temptation to become a total douchebag? Can he and his Amazons unravel the mystery behind the ancient Olympian War and finish a battle as old as time itself? And what new demons does Hades have to throw against the War God?

Daniel’s (updated) Guide to Early Retirement. Version 2.0 :
1: Intercept illegal money transfer from mafia boss. (Complete success. Except for the part where I was discovered and almost caught)
2: Hide out in super-exclusive Full Immersion Virtual Reality game until the heat is off. (Doing fine so far. They may have figured out that I’m in-game…still, it’s a huge game, so no problem, right?)
3: Roll a bard. Max out charisma. Live it up. (Two out of three ain’t bad. We’re just postponing the ‘Live it up’ part a bit.)
4: Profit. (Still almost two years to go for that. Think happy thoughts!)
He could have been way worse off. Sure, Daniel was stuck in-game as the local bard of a quaint village, but people were nice, the quests juicy and the lore intriguing. Even so, with the mob on the look-out, Daniel would soon find himself sorely tested to avoid detection.
Disclaimer: Still no harems in this series, even with a Bard MC. Go figure. We’re going light on the cursing and less light on the puns. You were warned.

Bastion was supposed to mean safety. It was supposed to mean a break from fighting for their lives and a chance to talk to someone who might actually know what’s going on. Access to their gold and some beer would have been nice, too.
They got none of those things. When Tina and James arrive in the capital, they find a city on fire in more ways than one. Players and non-players hunt each other in the streets, while the king who controls the city’s all-powerful artifact cowers from the chaos in his castle. Desperate to warn somebody about the Once King’s coming invasion, James wants to try to talk to the king anyway, while Tina just wants to meet the royal portal keepers who might be able to send them home.
It shouldn’t be hard to get an army of the world’s best-geared players through one city, but when they discover that the captain of the Royal Knights has been massacring low-level players in revenge disguised as justice, James and Tina will have to decide what is more important: the lives of their fellow gamers, or the stability of this world’s last great city. Both choices deserve a champion, but with the Once King’s armies closing in, taking the wrong side may doom everyone to an eternity as slaves to the Ghostfire.
The Church of the Resurrection has switched Primacy Online VI: Legacy of Balor into War Mode, early. The draftees and volunteers from the Earth’s city-states will be locked in the game and enter a life and death struggle before they are ready. Shortly after the game goes live in War Mode, Church players claim thousands of ‘First Time’ achievements, some of which have high point values.
The activation of War Mode means that the normal players will be entering the game months before they were scheduled to. Among the newcomers, there will be player killers, who make a sport out of hunting the draftees and volunteers. Many of the city-states use power Leveling schemes to quickly raise teams of non-War Mode players as hunters, whose only purpose is to hunt down the draftees and volunteer from the other city-states.
With bounties on their heads, Crom Cruach and his party move to the mainland of Toraigh and create alternate identities for themselves. Their plan is to attack the dungeons and race toward Level 20, where the first Rank advancement quests become available.

Argo Derren’s dream has always been to make it as an actor. Heir to one of the wealthiest companies in the Diamond Nations, he was supposed to follow in his father’s footsteps and join the family business. But Argo would rather spend his time trying to land a role IRL and playing Drake Realm, a VRMMORPG, together with his guild mates.
Unfortunately, despite his efforts, Argo can’t seem to catch a break. Every time he auditions for a part, he fumbles his lines and makes a fool of himself. His life inside the game isn’t much better to be honest; a low-level Bard, he keeps on messing up when running quests with the crew…
Argo hangs on, though, certain that his time will come. He just has to be patient. But after one failed audition too many, he’s given an ultimatum by his dad: come back and assume his rightful position in the company, or get thrown out onto the street.

Which may in turn help develop his acting range and land him a much needed gig in real life…
His first secret mission: infiltrate an orc camp on his own. But can Argo awaken the great actor within and mingle with the dangerous mobs without arousing suspicion? Can he succeed where he’s always failed thus far, or will he once again let everyone down?
