=====Stories: Legend of Hero=====
//What makes a game more real: when you can reach into it, or when it can reach out to you?//

===Summary===

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.
