Gamers are celebrities. Superstars.
Idols to the masses.
Only a few ever make it out of Piper’s Mill, most toil their lives away in the small town just dreaming of a better life.
Liam thought he had a comfortable life all worked out when it winds up wrenched away from him. Drawn into other’s schemes to hack the game and steal some spotlight he never expects to find himself playing in a game nobody has ever heard of.
He never expects to find himself deep in a dungeon at level one with no gear and barely any skills.
He certainly would never anticipate suddenly being tied to forces that promise not just to reshape his life, but the world outside the game.
Leveling up on the high seas
Castle Sardonis is surrounded by enemies on all sides and dangerously short of supplies. When a needed shipment goes missing the party finds themselves on the high seas beset by pirates and seeking the Goddess of the Sea. New loot, new levels, and new mysteries to unravel as more is learned about the world.
Liam, Walt, and Ashley return
Immediately following the story from Dungeon Crawl the focus remains with the same group and focused on their struggles within the Crucible Shard. Bonds of friendship continue to grow but they each find themselves pushed in new ways by this world.
Skyler is a gamer and a nerd through and through and has always been a great fan of Science Fiction and Fantasy. LitRPG is a genre that bridges those loves and the Crucible Shard series is all about those caught in a game that is more real than might be imagined, one that has consequences far beyond the virtual.
