Dross Brings the Bones by Byron Blackwood
Dross isn't like everyone else.
As far as he can tell, he's not an NPC and he's not a player. If he dies in the game, that's it.
He finds himself in a simple room and he has no idea how he got there. The only thing he knows for sure is that he must find and kill a mysterious enemy known only as the Rival.
Determined to survive, Dross gradually pieces together the nature of his existence and sets out on his first quest. If he survives, Dross will discover the frightening truth about the Rival.
But in a dark place of bones, Dross will learn something even more frightening--the truth about himself.
