Daniel's (updated) Guide to Early Retirement. Version 2.0 :
1: Intercept illegal money transfer from mafia boss. (Complete success. Except for the part where I was discovered and almost caught)
2: Hide out in super-exclusive Full Immersion Virtual Reality game until the heat is off. (Doing fine so far. They may have figured out that I’m in-game…still, it’s a huge game, so no problem, right?)
3: Roll a bard. Max out charisma. Live it up. (Two out of three ain’t bad. We’re just postponing the ‘Live it up’ part a bit.)
4: Profit. (Still almost two years to go for that. Think happy thoughts!)
He could have been way worse off. Sure, Daniel was stuck in-game as the local bard of a quaint village, but people were nice, the quests juicy and the lore intriguing. Even so, with the mob on the look-out, Daniel would soon find himself sorely tested to avoid detection.
Disclaimer: Still no harems in this series, even with a Bard MC. Go figure. We’re going light on the cursing and less light on the puns. You were warned.
