What is LitRPG?

Short for "Literary Role Playing Game", LitRPG is a speculative fiction genre which takes place either in a virtual reality game or a world which functions under the rules of a role-playing game. Plots often feature a person either being trapped in the game world or literally transported to another world, similar to a portal fantasy. The game world also can affect the real world, either mystically or mechanically (for example, the hardware used to play the game might physically threaten the player's real body). Originating in Russia, LitRPG has rapidly become popular in Korea, Japan, and English-speaking countries.


As there isn't a group specifically for LitRPG on DeviantArt yet, I thought I'd get one started.

Feel free to start submitting your stories, reviews and artwork to help grow the group!
