In a world gone mad, one college student struggles to become… the GREATEST GAME MASTER IN THE WORLD!
King of RPGs is a story of Mages & Monsters, collectible card games, psychiatric medication, Renaissance Faires, 20-sided dice, and rampant property damage. It’s a story of blood, sweat, tears, LARPing and World of Warfare, the world’s most popular MMORPG. It’s a story of the postapocalyptic world of TODAY, where the promises of science, democracy and progress have failed to deliver happiness, causing people to turn to… FANATICAL ROLE-PLAYING!
King of RPGs is a mashup of all that is good in manga (particularly melodramatic shonen manga of the SHONEN JUMP style, like Dragon Ball, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Iron Wok Jan, Shaman King, Naruto, etc.) with all that is oldskool and crunchy and weird in roleplaying games (particularly tabletop RPGs of the Dungeons & Dragons style).
King of RPGs is a graphic novel series by Jason Thompson and Victor Hao. Grab your dice and muster your fiery determination to join the legend of Earth’s greatest roleplayers!
