Going Wide – R. A. Mejia – Adventures on Tera

One of the most notable authors in the genre because of his podcast and reviewing abilities. Going wide is Ramon Mejia with this great series.

I listened to all the audiobooks that were out when I found the genre, and these were a nice addition to my list. 🙂 Really good if you love audio!

Bio –

I’m R.A. Mejia, and I’m an author apparently. I write in a genre called LitRPG. It combines video game and tabletop RPG mechanics with fictional writing. I fell in love with the genre a while ago and started to consume every book in the genre. I loved the genre so much that I wrote my own story. If you read my stories and love it, then I’m happy. If you don’t love it, I’ll recommend some other LitRPG for you to read that you might love. If you’ve ever dreamt about living one of your favorite video games or wondered what stories could be told from a gamer perspective, then the LitRPG genre is for you.

Going Wide – Lars Machmüller – The Wayward Bard

I haven’t had the chance to really look at this book, but it seems to have really gone down well.

Blurb

Daniel’s Guide to Early Retirement:

1: Intercept illegal money transfer from mafia boss.
2: Hide out in super exclusive Full Immersion Virtual Reality game until the heat is off.
3: Roll a bard. Max out charisma. Live it up.
4: Profit.

With all the pesky planning out of the way Daniel set out to realize his ultimate dream: gaining enough money to buy a tropical island and spend his days playing the violin and RPGs. What could possibly go wrong?

Disclaimer: There shall be no harems in this series. Overpowered, perfect protagonists will not be tolerated and excessive cursing will result in donations to the swear jar.

About Lars 

Introducing Past Lars, Present Lars and Future Lars

Past Lars spent most of his time on PC games, preferably RPGs or MMOs. He also imbibed too much alcohol for his own good, traveled a lot and read between 2 and 5 books a week. His favorite authors were many, but Patrick Rothfuss, Brent Weeks, Peter V. Brett, Steven Eriksson and Daniel Abraham were rarely far from his side.

Present Lars is constantly criticizing the lack of hours in a day. His full-time job and three small kids take turns entertaining him, tiring him out and making sure he doesn’t lack for something to do. The evening between 7.30 and 10 is when he truly comes alive, creating his own private fantasy world where mysteries abound and music permeates everything. He is amazed by the fact that he can watch a Lindsey Stirling video, attribute it as research for the coming book and not lie.

Future Lars is scraping by, but somehow he actually made the transition to full-time writer. The kids are growing up, and he can dedicate most of his time to writing – and he is loving it!

Discover the class you were born to play.

Wren, a seasoned healer, is dismayed when Somnia Online automatically assigns her character, Murmur, to the Enchanter class. Determined to overcome the unexpected setback, she assembles her guild, intent on the coveted #1 spot. Twelve keys stand between her and victory, but finding them is only part of the puzzle.

Armed with telepathic abilities, Murmur rises to the challenge. However, old rivals have followed her to Somnia Online desperate for revenge. Intricate quest lines become more dangerous as NPCs absorb powerful artifacts, and Murmur begins to wonder just what sort of AI controls the world.

Murmur questions her sanity as the real and virtual worlds mesh together. Everyone is keeping secrets from her, even the AI, and Murmur’s determined to uncover them.

Available through Amazon

Excerpt:

A skeleton shambled to the left, its bones creaking softly as it jangled about. Straight ahead was a spider with ridiculously long legs, and off to the right was a cluster of something she couldn’t make out. All of the mobs she could see were yellow, probably at least level three. But if she didn’t try, she’d never know.

Feeling reckless, she cast minor suffocation and pulled the skeleton toward her. The fact that the spell managed to convince an undead creature it was being strangled was quite amazing. It let out a cackle and jangled over to her as she backed up, hoping to let a third tick hit before it reached her. This time her spell was hitting for five and four. A slight increase was at least something. The skeleton flailed a wooden staff in the air and Murmur hoped against hope her hit points would outlast it.

Then it was upon her, three ticks of her Damage Over Time down. The thing was tall and gangly and she realized these skeletons had to be locus, too. Even its empty sockets glowed, like some type of magic possessed it. Considering it was a walking skeleton, that probably wasn’t far from the truth. It swung at her, and barely missed when she managed to dodge. She could feel the heaviness of her body, and the unwillingness with which it made the movement. That was probably her one dodge for the next twenty. She’d better make it count.

Killing a skeleton was far more difficult than a beetle. For one thing, it was already bloody dead. That blasted staff hurt too, though not as much as the pincer claws had. It made Murmur wonder if locus could bruise. Finally, after what seemed like an age, she managed to hack its skull off. She leaned forward and looted the mob. It had twelve copper on it. Maybe skeletons were a good idea for a while with or without her quest. Not only that, the staff it had been wielding was hers as well.

“Score,” she muttered to herself, aware she was probably grinning like a loon. Sure, her staff skills were n’t up to par but she was sure it wouldn’t take too long. It’s not like melee did most of her damage or anything.
