Charles Dean
Charles Dean is a bestselling LitRPG writer that started publishing back in 2015.

“The Bathrobe Knight” is the first novel in the “Bathrobe Knight” series and was released in 2015. Darwin is a video game addict, and he was just sitting in his slippers and bathrobe playing his favorite MMO one Christmas night when this univited guest breaks into his home to steal his belongings.

After the scuffle has ended he finds himself being transported into one of the magic and sword RPG style MMOs that he’s always loved playing, albeit one he’s never even heard of, where he must overcome trials and tribulations at every single turn while fighting for his life alongside some new companions.

“The Beginning” is the first novel in the “War Aeternus” series and was released in 2017. Lee is an unassuming and quiet office worker that leads a life of comfort, solitude, and routine. Days go by, and he shuts his brain off, keeps his head down, and goes about doing his job and just minding his own business.

That is, right until this drunken god turns up one day at random and whisks him off into another world, demanding that Lee serve as his pawn in this game between the gods.

Now, he is trapped in a totally different world filled with magic, danger, and creatures that he has never imagined outside of video games and fairy tales, so he must figure out how to survive just long enough to make it back home.

“The Heroic Villain” is the first novel in the “Heroic Villain” series and was released in 2019. Lucas, even though he was once a promising young CEO of this successful corporation, abandoned everything that he knew and retreated from both the real world and his demanding life after his horrific accident. To cope with his tragic loss, he started spending more of his time in virtual reality, lazing around in the sun and just living a carefree life.

Once he discovers that his escapist paradise is being threatened and will soon vanish, he’s once again forced to take some action and do what he does best: take charge. Lucas, with newfound purpose, desperately starts making plans which will not only save the world which he’s come to love but also propel him back into the spotlight yet again, just this time around playing the villain.

Lucas overthrows local lords, assumes command of the evil Imperium’s forces, and he starts designing this dungeon which no player would ever want to miss out on. While struggling to evolve his monsters and create this entourage of minions so that he could become the greatest villain, he realizes things won’t be as easy as they first seemed.

“Death’s Favorite Warlock” is the first novel in the “Death’s Favorite Warlock” series and was released in 2021. Kill, kill em all. These are the first four words that Lars typically wakes up to each morning while the voice in his head nags him, telling him she is just giving him a ‘quest’ which is going to help him ‘level’.

However he can’t, not even if he wanted to. They are cultivators, these beings with ancestral bloodlines which have these powers that he could only dream of and they might as well be gods while he’s just stuck being a puny human.

Even if he was able to kill them, the people that bullied him, beat him, and treat him like he was their own personal punching bag pariah for being the ‘tailless worthless human’ he was to them, he wouldn’t. It simply was not in his nature.

That is, until this vicious gang of murderous psychopaths known as a ‘sect’ descend on his village. The vicious gang brutally murders everybody that he’s known his whole life, taking a select few with them as their slaves.

He must now trust that he is not going insane and figure a way to complete this voice’s quests and level up, so that he can save his mom from her heartless and cruel captors in this cultivation themed Gamelit and LitRPG adventure.

“Death’s Favorite Warlock 2” was released in 2021. One kill after the next, Lars’ bloody hands have grown stronger with each passing day while he is soaked in the EXP from each cultivator whose life he has taken. What used to be horrific is now getting to be an addiction for him, however merely getting strong enough to survive was just the beginning.

When this elder cultivator powerful enough to destroy Lars with just a gesture spirits him away to the Sect of the Spring Rain, he winds up being the subject of this twisted plot to exploit and uncover his secret cultivation technique.

Can he possibly navigate his way through the treacherous power struggles of this sect within or is he going to be murdered by the factions vying for power? What will happen if his grisly methods are exposed? One this is for sure: he has to prove yet again that you should not mess around with a warlock that grows even more powerful with every life that he takes.

Join Lars while he continues to carve his own bloody path to power.

“The Upgrade Apocalypse” is the first novel in the “Upgrade Apocalypse” series and was released in 2023. When this group of former classmates get together for their ten year reunion, some old grudges rise to the surface while some old flames are rekindled. And that is where things go right to Hell. While a shower of comets brings an invasion of reunion crashing undead, the surviving alumni have to band together in a litRPG apocalypse full of horror, dark humor, and loot cards.

Join these survivors while they navigate this game of death, life, and even more death, leveling stats and skills while a world governing system urges them to struggle on for the sake of this glorious battle.

Welcome to Hell on Earth. Welcome to the Upgrade Apocalypse.

This book contains creative cursing, an interesting card skill system, apocalyptic adventures, jokes about the apocalypse, character deaths when they fail their save throws, and horror monsters to flee from or fight.
