Samuel has had a weird day. He found out he's dead and he's been transferred to a world based on the Wild West. Now one of the thousands of, technically dead, people populate the game world of Duskwood Online, but only some are aware that they are in a game.

All he has to do is adjust to a new life in a Wild West that has a healthy dose of fantasy. That is until he finds out a special contest open to all of the Active Cast.

Complete an impossible quest and earn a new body, constructed to specifications. It won't come cheap. Targets range from creatures of myth and folklore to legendary characters from history. The quest spanning the known world is the easy part. One life, no respawns. Death means they fade away into the background cast, no longer aware they are just an NPC in a game.

There is another side to the contest that others don't like to talk about. A bounty on each person who starts the quest. Samuel has a choice to make: hunt his fellow Active Cast members or go after the goal for himself.

Saddle up for a LitRPG adventure that runs from High Noon to Full Moon.

Potential for a great hunger games/sword art hybrid. Premise is interesting. We'll see where it goes. Give it a read.

Good story and a fairly unique one, at that. Good worldbuilding and a good take on the LITRPG genre. Check it out and give the author some encouragement!
