Welcome to Project: Gorgon!


Project: Gorgon is a 3D fantasy MMORPG (massively-multiplayer online role-playing game) that features an immersive experience that allows the player to forge their own path through exploration and discovery. We won't be guiding you through a world on rails, and as a result there are many hidden secrets awaiting discovery. Project: Gorgon also features an ambitious skill based leveling system that bucks the current trend of pre-determined classes, thus allowing the player to combine skills in order to create a truly unique playing experience.

The Project: Gorgon development team is led by industry veteran Eric Heimburg. Eric has over a decade of experience working as a Senior and Lead Engineer, Developer, Designer and Producer on successful games such as Asheron’s Call 1 and 2, Star Trek Online and other successful Massively Multiplayer Online Games.

    LitRPG

    Hello,

    what is your favorite LitRPG book?

    my favorites :
    - The Dragon's Wrath by Brent Roth
    - End Online by D. Wolfin
    - Play to Live by D. Rus

    and more, they have tons of very interesting ideas for a mmo to use...

    LitRPG is based on MMORPG games. You read books through the character's eyes. From quest to battles to leveling skills.

    LitRPG (Literature Role Playing Game)

    Live an RPG through a book in other words.

    No, like the protagonist is actually trapped in an MMO i think. If you google it, it will become more clear what it is. The book actually has the protagonist like mining copper to level up his skills and says stuff like "Rolf [made up prtoagonist name] is hit by the orc for 12 damage". I don't really get it.

    Not really like The Hobbit...No.

    The Hobbit (Book) is a series of episodic quests encountered by Bilbo in the form of chapters, often accompanied by the introduction of creatures or characters in Tolkien's vast geography. Apart from being descriptive about appearance, language and history of a creature, The Hobbit does not provide much more then that.

    LitRPG is just like a traditional online MMORPG (mix of science fiction and fantasy) but in written form. If you can see it in an mmo on your screen or as you adventure you will encounter it in a litRPG book. Think of it as a dungeon run being narrated through text, but in extremely great detail. This includes statistical analysis of the proctagonist (usually the narrator/story teller), creature and boss encounters. It ellaborates on your and creature skills an abilities, items in your possession and will go as far as to explain loot tables on creatures and locations you encounter throughout the book. LitRPG encompasses all facets of actual game play in book form. You even gain levels through and learn skills in a LitRPG book. Like watching a live twitch feed of your favourite game but in text.

    I will go further to say that LitRPG is like getting Link from Legend of Zelda, Illidan Stormrage from WoW, or Paarthurnax from Skyrim going on adventures writing a diary in extreme detail and you getting your hands on it, and immersing yourself in their adventures while they gain levels and find loot.

    I'v read several series of this kind of book, I am currently working on the Play to Live series by D. Rus.

    Not all LitRPG books have everything that ANT3RA listed, but most have atleast some of them. The most seen thing, in my experience, is the tracking of the main characters 'stats' STR went up 16 points, DEX went up 2 points ect...


    Some that I have read(most series are incomplete as authors burn out after 1-2 in this genera sadly):

    End Online

    Ready Player One (closer to a sci-fi book but really good, its just a single book)

    Way of the Clan series

    The Darkness Within series

    Emerilia series (also good)

    Delvers LLC series

    The Land (Chaos Seeds books) series (also good, tho story is not finished yet)

    NPCs series

    Read lots of these over the last year or 2

    I enjoyed most of those listed so far especially End online, The land and the John Nest books although many Run to 5 or 6 volumes and are not finished.

    Some others I've read include Continue online Series, Bathrobe Knight Series, The D.W Jackson books, The Way of the Shaman series.

    This may help

    I also Really enjoyed both the moonlight Sculptor and the Ark books though both are more readily available to read online than download for a reader. Both are Translated so like the D.rus novels mentioned above at times feel a little awkward.
    Royalroad is an online story place and well worth a look.

    Going a little off topic I can not Recommend the Starforce series by http://aerkijyr.com/ enough there are 100 books in series each about 100pages they are not lit rpg but they are really enjoyable.
