Stories: Legend of Hero

What makes a game more real: when you can reach into it, or when it can reach out to you?


Nothing interesting ever happens in the small town of Pitt Creek. Even when TheChanges hit, their closest approach is as dramatic video footage on the 6 o’clock news.

Kevin MacArthur and his friends want to be a part of that — to have their lives become like one of the video games they love. Instead, what they get is their video games coming to life.

First, a fictional character saves Kevin from a car crash. Then a creature of living shadow offers him a magical pendant, which opens a doorway to a land under siege. Kevin, David and Trent journey to a world of magic weapons, healing potions, boss monsters, and an ambitious ruler with a plan to affect Earth itself. In order to help the Shadowlands, the unexpected heroes must first determine how the games they love fit in to their quest — and whether the strange world unfolding in front of their eyes is even real.
