  • Profanity

Sam is a quiet 16 year old high school guy. He's a nerd and a geek. A pretty typical guy. When his friends try to peer pressure him into playing the tank role for the new VR game they all want to play, he rebels, although he can't quite figure out why. Choosing instead to play as a healer, Sam dives into the world of Pellan Rise as the dainty little healer named Sylanna, where he discovers that the game has a lot more influence over the real world than everyone thought.

Lots of LGBTness in here, as well as unending cuteness. Also, this story doesnt really focus on the mechanics of the game as much as litrpg would, which is why it's not filed under that tag.

This story was my first ever story to be uploaded online. This is the edited version, fixing as many of my dumb mistakes as I can find. Unlike my other story, Kammi Kettu, this one is also much more in line with the audience this site attracts, which is to say it is both an Isekai and a VRMMO story in one :P. I hope you enjoy!

Inspired me to write with Valerie

Pellan Rise was the series that made me fall in love with QuietValerie's writing and her worldbuilding and why later on I ended up writing with her for her Kammi Kettu series.

Pellan rise is full of adorable characters, epic worldbuilding, cool abilities and fun adventures.

A must read if you like any of her other work!

I have been following Pellan Rise over on TGStorytime, and I'm glad to see Valerie bring it over to here as well. As someone who has read up to what is it now chapter 23? Of the story, I adore it. I adore the characters, the relationships, the world building and game structure. 

Syl is an absolutely adorable goofball who deserves all the hugs, and I can't wait for you all to meet Izzy later in the story. 

Especially because Izzy is my brand of trans girl in regards to living while closeted.

Glad to see you brought this over here

I thought this looked familar :) Yet another great piece by QuietValerie

Spoiler: Spoiler

 All in all, if you enjoy gamelit (not litrpg) and tg stories where the genderbending isn't played for laughs, you'll love this

I Didn't Care About VR Stories BUT THEN!

Everything changed. 


This is the story that caused me to fall in love with Valerie's writing style. There is a reason why this tale has stolen so many people's hearts. 


Syl, like all of Valerie's protagonists, is cute as hell. I for one am partial to Karen. There's the right balance of action and emotion present from the very beginning. Pellan is a sort of Isekai, but the changes following our heroes out to the real world is a lovely twist that is quite enjoyable. 

Usually I don't give a shit about VR stories. They don't grab me. But pellan has so much emotion put into it. For a story about an egg becoming an elf girl, it feels so human and real. Like I could go to the mythical fantasy land of New Zealand and just hang out there for a while with these kids. 

And that's the real magic.

I really love the character set up and the confusion/acceptance that is going on and am so looking forward to this continuing for a few *hundred* chapters. *cough*
