Synopsis for The Unwanted Undead Adventurer
Rentt Faina, a 25-year-old adventurer, has been fighting monsters for over a decade. However, without much talent for the job, Rentt always ends up fighting slimes and goblins for a measly amount of money a day.
Little does he know that all this is about to change when he discovers a secret path to the Labyrinth of the Moon. What awaits him at the end of the road, however, is not treasure or riches, but a legendary dragon that wastes no time devouring him. Shortly after, Rentt wakes up, but discovers that he is not dead, nor is he alive either. Now it’s just a pile of bones. Armed with nothing but his trusty sword, utility belt, and a terrifying new look, Rentt begins a new adventure as a skeleton in search of a mythical item that will hopefully restore him to human form.
