Frank and his crew have truly made it: after unleashing version 2 of Endless Sky, a fully immersive sci-fi role-playing game, they’re richer than their wildest dreams. They’ve built a kick-butt new ship and are prepared to start reaching for the Legendary character levels. Sure, their actual bodies have long since been composted, but they were never planning to leave the game.
But then a series of adventures and mishaps—including an assassination mission that might not have gone well—send them spiraling in a new direction. They discover a strange new world that absolutely shouldn’t exist in the game, find themselves in the crosshairs of the game’s largest polity, the Terran Confederacy, and bereft of any polity to call their own.
It’s time for the crew of the Pretty, Pretty Princess (never put your ship’s name to a vote) to knuckle down and do what they’ve always done: take lemons and start a new lemonade stand franchising business. They’ll need to master new skills, level-up their character sheets, amass millions of Experience Points, and figure out who’s actually running the game.
Endless Sky: New Worlds is the sequel to Endless Sky: Truthsayer, a sci-fi themed “lightweight” LitRPG (or GameLit, if you prefer) in the vein of “Ready Player One.”
