    Hi y'all, I've sort of fallen down the LitRPG rabbit hole in 2021. I've absorbed enough content to level up a couple of times and unlock some skills. I'm looking for more LGBTQ content or older protagonists (like 50+ since I'm an old fart now).

    I've read:
    Freehaven Online series by Jun Prince
    God of the Factory series by Alex Raizman
    Noobtown series by Ryan Rimmel
    Rise to Omniscience series (about halfway through) by Aaron Oster
    Oh, Great! I was Reincarnated as a Farmer by Benjamin Kerei
    Mana Harvest by Wolfe Locke
    Derelict series by Dean Henegar
    This Trilogy is Broken (3/4) by J.P. Valentine
    He Who Fights with Monsters (3/4) by Shirtaloon
    Dominion of Blades series by Matt Dinniman
    The Whispering Crystals Series by H.C. Mills
    The Dimensional Wars by Blake Severson
    A bunch of series by Jonathan Brooks got me started

    I've abandoned for now:
    The Phantom Server series by Andrei Levadny
    System Apocalypse series by Tao Wong

    After science fiction and fantasy, I enjoy a good cozy mystery but haven't really seen anything like that with LitRPG elements.

    Welcome. Good luck in your quest.

    I'm an old fart too if you're looking for a new author. ;)

    No Limitless Lands or Limitless Seas? What about that old man book? The title is literally something with Old Man in it, I think.

    Thanks, I just finished An Old Man's Journey: A VRMMO LITRPG Adventure by Gregory Allanther. That was a lot of what I was looking for, although a 120 year old protagonist might have been a little much. I'm going to check out Limitless Lands next since I've read Dean Henegar's Derelict series.

    I just finished Jared Mandani's first True Smithing which features an older protagonist. I felt it like it said he was in his 70s early on and then approaching 100 a couple of times later, but most of the story takes place in compressed game world time while only a day or so passes in the real world.
