Little Red: A fairy tale RPG

Little Red: A fairy tale RPG

by Andrew B. Salmon

My son asked for a  Little Red Riding Hood story. Since it's in public domain, I figured I could steal -- er, innovate -- and retell the story with some stats and spells. For now this is a standalone short story, but I may expand on the universe later. Enjoy!

A CLASSIC TALE STIRRED TOGETHER WITH A NEW GENRE

Reviewed at: Little Red: The Finale

It's the same short fairy tale we all grew up reading, but with a new twist! 

And gosh if I don't now want an entire retelling of every Grimm's Fairy Tale with these LITrpg mechanics. I'm just imagining all the possibilities!

Did Snow White pick up some miner skills while living with the Seven Dwarves? 

What level was the witch that placed a sleeping curse on Sleeping Beauty?

Just how many bonuses did Rapunzel recieve for that hair length?

And of course, what was the quality of Cinderella's glass slipper? I'm thinking Unique Mythic Item at least.

 

Loved the story my friend! Please continue to write more!

Short and funny story to relax

Reviewed at: Little Red: The Finale

The title says it all. 

It's short, it won't even take you 20 minutes to read. It's funny, the premise being a traditional fairtytale imbued with RPG concepts. I do wish I had her superpower pastries...

Well written, no grammar mistake as far as I could find, short, funny. What better way to spend lunch break?

Grimms' LitRPG Tales pt. 1 - funny and refreshing

Reviewed at: Little Red: The Finale

Almost everybody knows Little Red Riding Hood. Sadly, both Perrault and the Brothers Grimm omitted the LitRPG parts of that story from their publications. But we are in luck, Andrew B. Salmon was able to bring the original to RoyalRoad. 

This short story is very enjoyable, with funny twists of the "normal" storyline. The characters are refreshing and the LitRPG parts are interesting.

There's just one big problem: I can't find the rest of Grimms' LitRPG Tales...!?

It's short, not too long, just nice to have it as modern bed time story. 

Somehow I do think it's a great idea to make it into a mini game, just so sweet and lovely!

Brave little red and the reliable huntsman, would be a nice team in future though. :D
