Glenn, a college sophomore, has a Sociology 102 paper that requires spending time with an unfamiliar group or culture. Luckily, two hot girls from his class have the same idea: Attend the university's game club to get reaction material for their papers.
A creepy game moderator shows up, ready to start a game of Monsters, Maces and Magic. Glenn doesn't fret over the GM's disturbing vibe, figuring it'll lead to potential fodder for his paper.
Moments after rolling up his character and beginning the adventure, Glenn, his two classmates, and three other players are drawn into the game, literally. How and why they got trapped in the game, transformed into their RPG characters are important questions, sure. But simply surviving a world filled with horrific creatures, unknown magic, and perilous roads is first on the list.
Praise for Outpost!

First LitRPG novel and I’ve read it twice!
I own the paperback of this book and recently purchased the ebook to read while rocking the baby to sleep. The second read through it was as good as the first. I’ve read all the novels in the series and highly recommend them all. The action is really great as the players find themselves trying to survive after being transported into the game. Having some of the characters be first time players is a great way to explain the RPG mechanics side of things in a way that is easy to follow. This is a really fun fantasy story and the RPG twist only makes it more interesting.
