The Hero Grade
Nox is a lazy, unambitious, unremarkable boy who wants an easy life. He wants to eat three meals a day, have a few days off, and live a long normal life. He is so close to reaching those goals after getting recruited to one of the most prestigious guild, The King's Armaments. Now he has a voice inside his head forcing him to become a hero. Why couldn't it pester the more talented recruits?
Instead of a normal life, he is dragged into a world of legends and mythical beings. A world of levels, artifacts, skills, magics, dungeons, and guild wars. A world of constant struggles to reach the top.
As an untalented and unathletic boy of sixteen, Nox finds himself having to learn battle skills, magics, and attend dungeon courses to have a chance to survive. Why does he have to work so hard?
