On New Earth, Epic isn't just a computer game- its a matter of life and death
Generations ago, violence was banned on New Earth. Society is gonverned and conflicts are resolved in the arnea of a fantasy computer game, Epic. Everyone plays, from teenagers to senior citizens. If you win, you have the chance to go to a university, get more supplies for your community , and fulfill your dreams; if you lose, your life and both in and out of the game is worth nothing.
When Erik, seeking revenge for the unjust treatment of his parents, adres to subery the rules of Epic, he and his friends are drawn into a cutthroat, power-hungry world. Soon they are up against the most dangerous players of all, the ultimate masters of the game: the Committee. If Erik and his friends win, they may have the key to destroying the Committee;s tyranny over New Earth.
But if they lose....
The Central Allocations split up family and friends, imprison them, and send them to mines. They beleive that they're bringing peace and order to the world, but really they're not. The people dream of dueling the C.A and winning.
This is a book I reccomend for video-game players, players from Runescape and World of Warcraft. Its a typical medevial, potion making, weapon bearing video game.
