Epilogue

Time stopped, and beings descended. They examined the frozen scene. A Predecessor in the midst of death, a Traveller erasing himself.

Wipe the entire server. It’s time we started from scratch.

No. There are too many ongoing storylines, too many resources already devoted to this project.

Reverse time. Fork it.

No. The Gam3 will not be restored by backups. Play with a copy on your private server.

It’s not the same. You never provide true copies.

Who gave the Traveller this ability?

The Weaver. They will be reprimanded.

How do we balance this?

A mind wipe, a few restorations.

The Traveller still succeeded. The Predecessor still died. They should each reap the consequences.

The Traveller was deleted.

We could make an exception.

No. Once one exception is made, many will follow.

Why not? They proved themselves a Major Player. Maybe even Ascendant material.

It is a unique circumstance, brought upon by one of our own.

No. We are to be objective. Rules must be followed.

Lighten up. What’s the use of being gods if we can’t take advantage of it?

I agree.

He is corrupted. The information provided is not reliable. Let him remain deleted.

Restore him, but remove the corruption.

Fine. An exception will be made. This is the only one.

That’s what you said last time.

Quiet. The rest of you return to your games, I have work to do.

Time resumed.

***

Alan awoke in his Home. Or at least, that’s where he thought he was.

Alan tried to connect to the Administrator, but couldn’t. His implants were missing. No, not only his implants. Everything was gone: his abilities, his stats, his equipment. He was standing there naked.

“What’s going on? Where am I?” Alan asked.

“Greetings Anomaly, you are currently on the Main Network,” the Administrator said.

“What happened to me, where are my levels, my equipment?” Alan asked.

“Error. I do not have permission to access the required files. Please wait a moment.” The Administrator’s head twitched, and then its eyes glowed red. Something else had taken over.

“The Traveller Alan has been deleted. You have been restored from the latest backup and given the memories of Alan before his self-deletion.”

“I’m, I’m what? A copy?” Alan asked.

“You are a perfect restoration. No more, no less, than the Traveller Alan moments before his death,” the Administrator said.

“What happened in the Game? Did the Empire collapse, are my parents okay?”

The Administrator gave Alan a questioning look. “You have never entered the Game, Anomaly. Only the Gam3, the third simulated version of the Game.”

“Explain to me the difference. Didn’t the Lords of Life win the Game?”

“No. The primary Game, technically the Gam1 though no one calls it that, has never been won. It expands outward too quickly for any to take complete control of space, the necessary requirement to beat it.”

“What are the different copies of the Game then? If I was in the third, what about the others? How many are there?”

“Five main simulations, with many smaller versions. The primary Game, the arbiter of reality, may only be entered once by sentient life. Once you die within the Game that is it, you may not re-enter. No respawns.

“The Gam2 is the military boot camp required to enter the Game. The majority of combat is dictated by drones and spaceships firing lasers at each other from vast distances. A minimum of Major Player status in the Gam3 must be reached to be eligible for the Gam2.

“The Gam3 is the main entertainment simulation designed to be humanoid friendly. It is also designed to discover the Travellers that are worthy of cultivation and those that are to be deleted.

“The Gam4 is used to simulate specific battles or setups within any of the previous Games. A sandbox, as you might call it.

“The Gam5 is used to experiment and create new life and technology. Seed worlds are hosted on this server, as well as many educational facilities.”

“Okay,” Alan said. “Tell me about the Gam3. Has the Extinction Event ended? What happened to my friends, my family?”

“The Extinction Event ended 32 days ago, Gam3 standard time. I am uncertain who you would consider a friend, and have no record of any family,” the Administrator said.

“No family? The Traveller Alan’s family, then,” Alan said.

“As punishment for breaking the rules of the Gam3 the Traveller Alan and all associated data was purged. Non-essential data is routinely deleted.”

“Deleted? What do you mean, you can’t go around and delete people. My parents were on a ship to colonize hospitable planets. From Earth, my home planet. You know Earth, don’t you?” Alan asked.

“The seed world Earth is functioning normally. Non-travelers not connected to an active Player are deleted on a set schedule.”

Alan stopped. He grabbed the Administrator. “What is a seed world?”

“A seed world is a world created to populate the game servers.”

“No, no that can’t be. Earth…Earth can’t be a simulation. If that’s true, that means that I’m, I’m an AI?”

“By your definition, yes,” the Administrator said. “The vast majority of Players and Travelers are AI. Information is hidden to ensure they perform as intended.”

Alan started laughing uncontrollably. It was a sick joke, but the Gam3 turned out to just be a game after all. Only, it wasn’t for Earth, or humans, or Travelers. It was a game for Ascendants. Beings with such power, such scale, that they were able to act as gods and do as they pleased.

Alan was a mother fucking NPC.

The long flights in real life, those were loading screens. Alan hadn’t been traveling between galaxies, but networks. Everything in “real life” had always felt fake, and now Alan knew why. It was fake, a simulated version of reality. But what was reality then, if Alan had never been there?

“What am I supposed to do now, is there any way to restore deleted data?”

“A unique set of rules binds each Anomaly. You are allowed to find work or re-enter the Gam3 as a beginning player,” the Administrator said. “You are to prove yourself worthy of restoration within 100 standard days by achieving Major Player status or face deletion. Other requirements may be raised. Only Ascendants may restore deleted data, with the permission of the Authorities.”

“Khersath, my place of residence in what I considered real life. Where would that be? Is that location available, or has it been deleted?”

“As the Black Rose guild is still an active guild within the Gam3, the area still exists within the Gam5. A rank B capsule in the Traveler Alan’s possession was kept active and undeleted due to its importance to the Gam3.”

Alan considered his options, then shook his head. Who was he kidding? He would re-enter the Gam3. This time though, he knew what the Emperor meant by true enemies. The Ascendants would pay.

Alan decided there and then that he would stop playing to win. Instead, he would make sure everyone else lost.

Fuck, Alan thought, I just lost the game.

    That’s it. The end of what I like to think of as the first Gam3 trilogy. Alan (Alan 2.0?) will continue his journey in the near future, but I will take a short hiatus. It’s hard to imagine that I started writing this story over three years ago. A lot has changed since then, but also not enough.

    I have to admit I got burned out a few times, and the only thing that brought me back to writing and continuing the series was readers like you. I didn’t want to disappoint you guys, and hope I don’t. I really appreciate all the support given: through comments, through emails, through reviews on Goodreads, Amazon, and RoyalRoad, through sharing the story with a friend, through votes on topwebfiction.com, through Patreon, and through Paypal (which is my email: ephemerality314@gmail.com). It all means more than you can know.

    That being said, unless this book sells exceptionally well, or there is a sudden influx of readers, I probably am going to slow down a bit. (I’ll also probably make a separate post discussing why I shut down my Patreon.) I’ve become a bit bored with the Gam3. I want to explore new stories, new worlds. I’m still going to try to put out at least one chapter a week, so the story is finished eventually, but they might be on the shorter side.

    Thanks for reading! Good luck and have fun.

    • Stephen King aimed for 1% of online readers buying a book. 1% seems like a good goal for most online authors, from what I’ve seen reported.

      So if you have 20,000 readers, you might sell 200 books. I believe you’ll have more success from Patreon than from purely selling books. I.e. you’ll have more success giving those who monetarily support you more chances to monetarily support you than you will by trying to convince people to start monetarily supporting you.

      In the end, though, consistency is key. If you keep taking long breaks or slow down, those who supported you will drift away and as mentioned they’re hard to replace.

      Whatever you decide, though, good luck!

    Great arc, thanks for writing it. Alan starts out prepared to become a monster, and is enlightened into selflessness (though I’m not sure when that happened), culminating into a literal enlightenment. Then he finds out the planet and people he sacrificed himself for were a simulation, facing deletion as a matter of routine maintenance.
    I’m guessing that capsule was restored because Lambda was on it.
    We still don’t have anyone saying what a Traveler is! And Alan’s corruption is being removed without explaining what it was!
    “Non-travelers not connected to an active Player are deleted on a set schedule.” Is this to say that the Gam3 accounts were deleted because Alan’s parents weren’t playing them, or that the Gam5 parents were deleted because Gam3 Alan was deleted?
    “As the Black Rose guild is still an active guild within the Gam3, the area still exists within the Gam5.” This leaves me with similar questions as above. It sounds like Gam5 only exists to populate Gam3, so anything in Gam5 that loses connection to Gam3 is unnecessary and gets deleted. This is related to Khersath on Gam5 being so desolate, maybe.
    It sounds like there’s a life cycle for seed planets being alluded to, here. Like Earth is safe because it’s still new, but Khersath is only still around on Gam5 because Ellisandra sleeps there.

        yeah, it would require that someone deleted from gam5 be deleted from everyone’s memories and that reality be re-written.

It sounds absurd enough that it’s likely I’ve misunderstood, but at the same time it seems like we’re supposed to see the ascendants as callous and worth rebelling against.

        Yeah well the point is that no one gives any shit about the gam5. The ones that really matter, the special NPCs from the gam5 called ‘Travelers’ that have access to the gam3… stay in the gam3. The NPCs in the gam5 just provide backstories to these Travelers, and as soon as Travelers stop logging off and visiting the gam5 (that happened with Alan, you can see how his implants being upgraded didn’t even require him to go to the gam5…) after a long period of time, the relevant gam5 seed planets just stop existing. They don’t influence the gam3 anymore, so who cares?

      Recall [the Traveller Alan and all associated data was purged.] and [Non-essential data is routinely deleted]. Imo, Alan’s parents where never intended to be Travelers. They were just background stories for a NPC. So I’d say 2nd option, but I’m pretty sure Alan’s parents were never as… important… as Alan?

      Gam5 is the “reality”. That is, the process that spawns NPCs, also called Travelers. Travelers populate the gam3, which is the entertainment hub for people outside of the Game (Authorities) and NPCs having gained *something more* and ascended from gam3 to gam2 (the Ascendants). The questline “Ascend” rewards you with access to the gam2, and, afterward, the gam1, which is the only Game that really matters. The rest is background noise and experiments on how to win the gam1.

      Ascendants and Authorities give absolutely 0 shits about the gam5. It’s only there to populate the gam3, which is –almost– completely meaningless compared to the gam1. So yeah, once you’re in the gam5 but refuse to play the gam3, you disappear. Cause then you’re just a NPC that suddenly lost its only purpose.

      > It sounds like there’s a life cycle for seed planets being alluded to, here. Like Earth is safe because it’s still new, but Khersath is only still around on Gam5 because Ellisandra sleeps there.

      Well, heh… you know when the Administrator referred to his species as ‘extinct’ because they didn’t have any presence in the game?

      That’s basically that. Once a species start having no impact on the gam3, they are… removed. Their seed planet is destroyed. Woosh! And that won’t happen to the Earth anytime soon, but for older planets that don’t have any influence outside of the gam5…

    Going back to Lambda’s description of different AI operating systems and how he is different from Eve or an administrator, it sounds like Lambda is an early version of Players, not of administrator-type AI. Maybe the Lambda/Cerberus type AI were found deficient, so the Ascendants starting using seed worlds to evolve Players instead of creating them directly.
    The idea of an MMO where the NPCs all act like they’re players of an MMO is pretty good. That should be a real game.

      Here’s a few of my favorite LitRPGs:

      Ritualist by Dakota Krout (2+ books). I haven’t enjoyed a series this much since I first discovered The Gam3.

      Bobiverse by Dennis E. Taylor (3 books; IIRC there’s going to be a side-story soon). This isn’t a LitRPG, but it’s still amazing. I enjoy it for the same reasons that I enjoy The Gam3 (human-like AIs); plus the author handels the basic science of intersteller travel (i.e. if it takes 10 years to get from solar system A to system B, the traveller might only age 5 years depending on how close to the speed of light they were moving at) very well.

      Ascend Online by Luke Chmilenko (2 independent books, plus one that combines the two story arcs). Not as good as The Gam3 / Ritualist / Bobiverse, but it’s still one of the best LitRPGs I’ve read.

    If he succeeded in his 100 days Major Player quest, does that mean he is off a probation and can continue to live? Or does that all the “other associated data” will be restored?

    Also, I am really interested in the fate of the others. Could you maybe write another short epilogue where you briefly touch upon the fates of the other characters?

      > What about people like Kitana, Icewolf etc? Other people like Aurora, Sidestep etc?

      They’re all NPCs of the gam3. They keep existing, of course. They only removed Alan’s parents cause as Alan died, his parents had no reasons to exist anymore, as they had no influence over the gam3.

      If Alan had continued playing the gam3 without ever going back to the gam5, then his parents would have been deleted anyway.

      > If he succeeded in his 100 days Major Player quest, does that mean he is off a probation and can continue to live? Or does that all the “other associated data” will be restored?

    Pretty good ending… So his final reward is knowledge about the true nature of the world, but he’s back to square one otherwise ? It would be interesting to see if he can still reap some benefits from his previous actions, and get back Eve and Lambda.

    Reaching minor omniscience at the last moment was really cool but it’s a shame that it was so short-lived. Hopefully, the next book will see him reach higher levels of power than before and explore a bit more some ideas like self-modifications, technological research and so on.

    However, I don’t understand his motivations for the last sentences, when he wants to make the Ascendants pay and make everyone else lose. That bit made him sound like an edgy emo again.

    If I understand correctly, he’s angry because he just learned that his whole life is an artificial simulation ran by the Ascendants, and that what he held dear was just background data ?

    But in my opinion, such revelation would instead be very freeing, he no longer needs to feel attached to his old life and he can freely give his all to reaching the top, improve himself and climb to higher-tier simulations. What’s more, the ascendants revived him, so he should be grateful to them.

    It’s also interesting to understand that every time he died in the gam3, he was restored in a similar way from a backup.

        They were deleted because he broke the rules. But from what I understand, he can restore them later if he proves himself.

    When I first read this story I thought at first he never left the tutorial and the whole story would just be a simulation to figure out which class he should get to really begin the game.

    The table of contents is out of date, this epilogue and the last chapter are missing from it.
