Tim Kaiver is an old-school gamer who writes Sci-Fi/Fantasy LitRPG full of hope, adventure and more cool things than you could shake a stick at, or a laser rifle. Actually, you should probably set that down... carefully. Our galaxy doesn't provide safety training for that. Leave that kind of fun for Tim's books.
His Cipher's Quest novel is real world RPG inspired by Final Fantasy VI's mix of magic, creative powers and low-tech society and Stargate's exploration of myth and galactic consequences. The Ciphercraft series takes place in a galaxy decimated by genocide and desperate for heroes. The rediscovery of a real-life gaming system will bring new powers, but fiercer enemies. Each book expands the Cipher's game mechanics from unique class abilities, party management, city building, dungeon diving, portal warfare and defense against a galactic tyrant's planet invasion—and that's the spoiler free version.

Tim lives in Iowa with his wife and two children, because there's nothing like miles of farmland to inspire one to dreams of galactic adventure.
