Dying and being reborn as a mighty hero, receiving both the adoration of the masses and the power to right wrongs. A fantastic dream for many, far beyond their reach. Who wouldn’t want to become the chosen one?

Not Simon, that’s for damn sure.

Fate conspires against him, helped along by a ‘Goddess’ who seems closer to devil than deity. Tossed into a world filled with superhuman warriors and apocalypse level monsters, forced to the forefront of an age-long simmering conflict, Simon has to keep up the appearance of their prophesied hero whilst also avoiding instant annihilation at the hands of his enemies. Or his allies. Or anything in general.

Still, he might be able to survive if he plays his cards right. Three trials and he’s done. It might just be another joke, a lie created to keep him in line, but at least it was a slight glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. Better than nothing, right?

Join him on his journey through the ranks of overpowered foes toward his final goal: Going home in one piece.
