This collection of 12 short LitRPG / Gamelit / Wuxia stories came about as a labor of love and a desire to give back to those who serve and protect us all in the armed forces. Each of these stories is an original crafted by some of the best authors in the LitRPG / Gamelit community in response to the prompt “Stories of Sacrifice”. We all wanted to pay homage to those who’ve sacrificed for all of us.
All of the funds from this anthology go directly to the Wounded Warrior Project as part of our “LitRPG Gives Back” campaign. We hope you enjoy these stories just as much as we enjoyed writing them. Here is a short description of each of the stories.
