All I wanted to do was play Royal Road Quest, become the hero who defeated all 72 Demon Lords and marry the princess for a happy ending.
Instead, I somehow got dumped into the game, not as a hero but as one of the participants in a demonic ritual: a death-game type of tournament where thousands of hopeful demons battle it out to be the last, surviving 72 and attain the highly revered title of "Demon Lord". With such status came rank, prestige, power, territory and loyal followers.
The catch? I am the only human candiate among murderous monsters, bloodthirsty beasts and powerful demon nobles. A normal, lowly human.
That's all right, though. I will show them all. How a single human can be the most terrifying and cunning existence of all.
