Erebos

Teenager Nick notices that a disc has been passed around the school. He thinks it’s a music CD, but once he gets a hold of it, he finds that it’s a MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) which the “Messager” runs. Nick thinks it’s an awesome game, but there are rules that if you break, your character won’t be the only one in danger.

1. ALWAYS play alone
2. NEVER talk about the game
3. NEVER tell your nickname
4. ALWAYS follow the Messager’s direction

And one more thing: To level up, you need to do quests. REALITY quests. In return, the game levels you up, and gives you what you want in real life.  It’s a game, it watches you …

Nick is my favorite character. Smart and resourceful, he gets the job done, but sadly, he breaks the rules of the game, and mysteriously can never play it again …  [JoelFromTheLastOfUs]

    I’m sure that I would be amused by its portrayal of video games, probably as highly addictive wastes of time. They always get it wrong. Interesting concept for a book, I guess.
