and as a general rule: Read every LitRPG mentioned on KU, and alll it will start reccomending you is litRPG.
Would it even be a LitRPG story anymore if its told from the pov of a in-game character rather than a player?I'm just now dipping my toe into LitRPG (reading and writing). But I have to admit to some resistance to things like Isekai. Anyone have any good suggestions for "in character" LitRPG fantasy stories? Anything Dwarf Fortress or Civ-esque would be a plus.
There are a fair few litrpg stories that take place in settings that run on game rules but have no actual game and no connection to Earth. It’s just the way things work. The Adventures On Brad series by Tao Wong is my favorite of that sub genre.Would it even be a LitRPG story anymore if its told from the pov of a in-game character rather than a player?
Yep. It's a good read (And indeed, was in my first post on this thread!) So triple-recommended!NPCs by Drew Hayes is a good example of a litrpg where some of the main characters are natives of the game world, while others are from Earth. The Earthers never actually visit the game world, only their characters do. The game world can still affect them on Earth, though, which comes as more than a bit of a surprise.
