When college sophomore Dan Marshall's life morphs into a hybrid of Penn State and a homebrew tabletop RPG adventure, he grabs his talking two-handed sword and hits campus, seeking gold, girls, and glory.
But even with two beautiful bad-ass women at his side, how can a low-level barbarian survive when he’s pitted against a fraternity of gnolls, a dungeon full of nightmares, and an apocalyptic death cult bent on destroying the whole world?
Warning: Dan the Barbarian is an over-the-top adventure novel intended for readers 18 and older. It includes explicit sex, graphic violence, a harem of gorgeous ass-kicking girls, and a foul-mouthed two-handed sword. Read at your own risk.
My Opinion: 336 pages, $0.99, Available on Kindle Unlimited
*Warning: There are graphic sex scenes in this story.*
Even though it has GameLit in the title it’s also LitRPG. It has tabletop character sheets, stats, and leveling. The story portion is wish fulfillment harem.
The main character, Dan, wishes for his life to be like the fantasy tabletop game he plays with his friends, full of action, adventure, and busty women that want him. Only when he does get his wish and becomes a level 1 barbarian, he finds the normal world and all the people he knew have merged with the rules of the fantasy tabletop game. That hot girl down the hall, is now even hotter and a druid. The MC goes on adventures, becoming the adventure seeking person he always wanted to be and having lots of sex along the way.
Overall, it’s an entertaining, light hearted, funny read. There is quite of bit of sex, which I skipped over, but even ignoring that, it’s kind of just a fun story.
Score: 7.1 out of 10
