In the year 2077, everything changed.  The government had long prohibited the scientific community from performing a certain experiment with a large Hadron collider for fear it would create a black hole that would destroy the Earth.  However, when global warming threatened mankind with extinction, a group of scientists decided that the world was likely to end anyways, so they might as well try it out. The result: something unexpected.  It turns out, when you collide particles together like that, you don’t actually create a black hole, but a wormhole to another dimension. A being passed through the wormhole that day, a being I can only call God, or a god, to be more accurate.  

I can hear what you’re wondering: how do I know all of this?  It’s simple. The being spoke to us as soon as it appeared. And by us, I mean every human being on the planet, all at once.  

“You all have made a right mess of this world.  I’m going to give you a chance to change things.  In exchange, I have one demand. You must all worship me.  I don’t care about morality, I don’t care about money or power, nor do I care about what you do in my name.  However, I am a jealous god, and I will not tolerate any other worship. Anyone who doesn’t must be purged. It won’t be hard.  After all, worshipping me will provide you new abilities. If you agree to this demand, please click accept.”

In that moment, a screen appeared in front of everyone on the planet, displaying a curiously familiar phrase: “Do you accept the terms & conditions?”  

People made their own decision that day, and they dealt with the consequences.  There was no such thing as converting, or a second chance. If you didn’t accept, you died or were chased to the outskirts of the world, forced to live a nomadic, solitary lifestyle.  If you did accept, then your entire life changed.

I was 8 years old at the time and a voice from the sky claiming to be a god offered me a chance to gain powers like something out of a game; of course I said yes!

Bio: Author. My novels at the moment include Luxury Cafe Owner and Grave of Heroes. Luxury Cafe Owner is complete at 57 chapters and available to read on Amazon. The first book in the Grave of Heroes series, Evil Star, is on the back burner. I have decided not to do serialized releases for it, and to release it all at once on Amazon. My latest LitRPG series, Dungeon Ecology, is currently being released chapter by chapter here and on Moonquill!
