Toshi lived a normal life, a happy life. His father worked in the adventurer's guild where he made money for his family, and his mother lived in the house, taking care of him and cooking food for the family.

Toshi looked forward to waking up and playing with his friends, but there was something odd in his life. He didn't notice it at first, but slowly, with each day passing, it became more and more noticeable.

Each day repeated itself... forever and ever.

Without fail, each time he woke up, his mother would wake him, telling him that his food was on the table and every single day it was the same thing, rice with bacon.

It continued like this for god knows how long, each day repeating. It was practically torture for Toshi, but then one day, something happened. Something that stopped the 'time-loop' that he was trapped in.

Eight steps to the end

When the System Apocalypse fell on the world, most didn't understand what was going on.

Life is a game now? Monsters prowl the streets? Random ruins, caves and sewers turned into dungeons?

Wait? Internet is gone? Why can't I charge my phone? Can this blue box stop floating before my face? How do you even do laundry by hand?

Well, people asked all sorts of questions.

Will this work like in the web novels? Should I risk my life to be the first to kill a ten levels stronger monster? Could I even do that? Why do I not have legs? Will I respawn? I want to respawn. 

I don't want to respawn, I want out of this hell. Why did I choose this games system? Immortality sucks. My stats will never be high.

Can I exploit the enchanting and potion crafting? What do you mean the time doesn't pause while I operate the crafting station? The potion only lasts six seconds!

What sort of idiotic System Admin thought it was a good idea to not nerf the insta-kill spells!!

Wait? I can Draw?

There are classes not shown at the Crystals?

Some dungeons scale with level?

I can trade cards with NPCs at my own Outpost?

Some questions, led to better outcomes. But only a tiny bit better.

Unless, of course, they were asked by someone who remembered every single piece of data from that game they played as a kid.

And maybe, just maybe, it was one of those games that let you... well, it wouldn't be fun to put everything in the synopsis.


So yeah, the System here, is based on various real games... but since that's where the inspiration (copy-pasting) ends, I don't think fan-fiction tag is quite required.

Just wanted to build the ways to exploit the System, with something that actually exists, so it would feel slightly less like plot armour. Hopefully.

Imagine you've just lost your job. You're walking down a back alley in New York City, and all you have left is a small apartment on the third floor for the next three weeks. Your cat, wise as he is, decided to leave you for the neighbors' milk, and your ex-fiancee has found a new love in an up-and-coming freshman football player. The happy couple smiles at you from every sports magazine you encounter.

Is it raining? Of course, it is raining. Your coat is wet, your trousers are soaked, and you wonder if you should gamble your last dollar on a one-dollar hamburger meal, or go home and commit slow suicide by eating the pastrami in your fridge. The pastrami the previous lessee left in the fridge, when he was booted out.

Would you spot the envelope, sticking halfway your neighbor's mailbox? Would you take it, open it, read it? Would you call the number and try to sell your soul?

Would you wear a hat?

Would you?

This is a story in short installments. Let me be honest upfront: I have no idea if I will ever finish it, or if it will go anywhere. Chapters may or may not show up. Ever. I'm not a great writer, nor a native English speaker either. To be honest, I need all the help I can get.

Fair warning: this story may simply not be of your liking. It might play a joke or two on the reader, parody RR, WP, HP, who knows. Please take it as it is: light entertainment.

Then again, Kind's Kiss started as a joke, did reach a 100k+ words, and still isn't finished yet. Who knows what will happen to Souls for Hire?
