Publisher's Summary

If Gary had known he'd get trapped in an RPG with his real-life stats, he’d have tried harder in gym class.

Gary Burns just wanted to create the greatest RPG campaign of his gaming career. But a freak magical accident sucks him into the very world he created - as himself.

Surrounded by heroes who look and sound like his friends, Gary is forced to play out the story he wrote. Worthless in a fight, Gary must prove himself valuable even if it means feeding the team insider knowledge.

Because he needs to keep his friends close - and himself alive - until he can solve the puzzle he never designed: how to get everyone back home.

Homebrew puts the RPG into litRPG, taking the ever-growing gamelit genre back to its tabletop roots. If you miss the rattle of dice and gaming at a table with your friends, the Metagamer Chronicles are what you've been craving. Fans of Dungeons and Dragons and old TSR novels will love Homebrew.

A fresh take on the genre

As an active Game Master I found this wonderfully entertaining. Might be niche but if you're reading this review this book is probably for you. Can't wait for the second book!

Entertaining and for the table top RPG lovers

A great take on getting sucked into a new world where you have insider knowledge. The main pro-tag wasn't over powered and the party struggles as they should for any GM. The Cons i have for this one are all just personal preference when it comes to my own gaming experience. Enjoy :)

Not bad, but not worth 5 stars

I liked it and will get book 2, but not a 5 star book. It’s good filler while you’re waiting for something else to come out.
