Chance Myriad, a guy who's future is extremely bleak as his world is a complete wreck. That is until...
In between life and death, his soul finds an odd die (one dice) that has 6 sides, no 10, wait 20, or 50, maybe 100? Infinite sides, with an innumerable amount of combination of numbers and letters.

In My Mind
Asleep, I enter a world unknown. A world not dictated by time, rules, nor man. It's a world of my own—a world of records, chaos, rebirth, death, and illusions that plague the mortal’s soul. A world in my mind.
These are just records of things that goes through my mind. They are by no means a complete work of fiction. just figments of my imagination. ===Short stories
Check out my other work, Dead Souls, an actual chronological fiction, which I will update more frequently once I find an editor.
PS I need help! I'm not a good writer, but I hope to be one day!
Levi Asteros, a deathrow prisoner, is offered an opportunity he can't refuse, soon finding himself inside of a game for viewer's entertainment. Should he complete it, he'll be granted a large sum of money and all his charges will be dropped. However, he wasn't the only prisoner given this offer, and with the world's rankings deciding the player's places, competition between them soon turns deadly.
Levi dedicates himself to climbing the ladder, enjoying it for what it is, a game. But with the conditions for the game's "completion" being so vague, he can do little to concieve what the developers have in mind for him and the other players.
What to Expect: This story has prisoners put in dangerous situations, so naturally there's gonna be some gore and cursing. So if you're squemish about that, this might not be for you. I'd recommend this story to fans of fantasy and litrpg who are fine with minimal stats. The leveling system is heavily skills oriented, so while stats still have their place, don't expect pages sprawling with them. As for the story itself, while the focus is on the progression aspect, there will be emphasis on worldbuilding as well.
If you see any gramatical errors, feel free to them out, though I will try to make it at least a little hard for yall. Thanks for reading and enjoy!

Feral lycans. Blind horses. Drunken doves.
Deadly duels. Blood feuds. Assassinations.
Mad gods. Foul magics. Mythic places.
These terrible things I see,
These things I must navigate,
And I have but one power,
That is more curse than blessing:
That of the Servant,
Beholden and below,
Sworn to someone else.
I thought that it would kill me,
This cursed service,
Life is never simple,
