LitRPG Podcast 184 -  Author Conversation - Vasily Mahanenko

Aug. 10th, 2019

Hello everyone, welcome to episode 184 of the LitRPG podcast.

I’m Ramon Mejia. I’m here to bring you the latest LitRPG news, reviews, and author interviews.  

This week I’m talking to one of the men responsible for the popularization of LitRPG in both Russia and the United States. 

The author of the best selling series The Way of the Shaman series, as well as Galactogon series, Dark Paladin series, and most recently a new Barliona series called : Invasion.  

Welcome Vasily Mahanenko!

For the people that don’t know you, tell us a little about yourself and your background?

You just released a new book set in the same universe as Way of the Shaman, the Barliona Universe, Called Invasion. Tell me a little about it.

Does this story tie into the Way of the Shaman or are there any easter eggs? 

I personally noted the character, Eredani, is on the prisoner program that hides his real identity but he’s actually a veteran player who knows about the Crafting skill exploit. Is he someone famous from the Way of the Shaman series?

Give us an insight into your main character, Brody West aka Kvalen. What does he do that is so special?

What are you working on at the minute?

-Co-Authored: Bard of Barlino series

-Edited: Dancing on the Block, by  Marina Barinova 

-Publishing in Russia: Cosimo Yap’s The Gam3 series. How did that go?

Is there anything else you would like to add that I haven’t included?
