The Ledgendeer

[Quote of the post] The Ledgendeer is more than just a game. Play it if you dare...
[Song of the post] Nothing Yet - Still

What if there were real worlds where our nightmares live and wait for us?

The Ledgendeer trilogy by Alan Gibbons, in my opinion, is one of the best trilogies ever written.

Ever wondered why myths seem to revolve around the number three? The three heads of Cerebus. The nine rivers of Hades. The nine worlds of the Norse myths. The three muses, the three Furies, the three Norns. The trinity of evil. The trinity of trinities. All multiples of three.

But that is the language of the game and its Gamesmaster. He wants to take over our world, and he is using the game to do just that.

Just imagine. A game in which fantasy is reality. But using cutting-edge technology, you don't just play the game in Virtural Reality... more like Parallel Reality - you don't just see and hear, but taste, feel, smell. In a year's time, there will be one in every teenager's room.

But that's just the problem. You don't play the game, the game plays you. Just think: one moment, a teenager will be battling a demon in the game - the next moment, it will be there in his room. The game opens up a gateway between our world and the world of myths.

But in every myth, there is of course, a hero. This hero comes in the form of Pheonix Graves, a fourteen-year-old teenager from England (British writer). Together with his friend Laura Osibona, they travel into the world of myths three times: Shadow of the Minotaur, Vampyr Legion and Warriors of the Raven; Greek myth, vampires and Norse myth.

They battle with the Gamesmaster's pawns countless times, with the help of Andreas, a great-uncle's spirit who still communicates with Pheonix. Defeating the Gamesmaster is no easy task, especially when he has the alligence of Steven Adams, Pheonix's ex-school bully who entered the game, but chose not to return.

In this thrilling trilogy, it's gaming brought to the next level. So, will this game ever emerge on the market?

For the purposes of the game, yes.
