Polymath Redux Annex
Disclaimer: Original story by HiDrangeA. With their permission, I am taking over the continuation of this story as the original author no longer wishes to continue. While I am not as experienced, I hope you all will continue to show as much interest in my attempt at the helm as you did for the original author. I have tried my best to emulate the original style as well as incorporating some of my own. Thank you for understanding.
"I'm no 'Hero', and if you had to classify me, I'd probably stand more on the 'Villain' spectrum of things..."
There was a game that I loved. I've played that one game like a madman for over ten years, and after all that arduous effort I had reached the empty 'top'.
I'm by no means special, all I did was invest a ridiculous amount of time and money into that game. Simply put, I bought my way up to the top with my money and time. If anyone was as crazy as me, they would've reached the top as well.
Reaching the top made me realize one thing... It made me understand that one cannot go any further. This was the end of my journey. I've beaten every boss, obtained every 'legendary' class item and cleared every content on every difficulty. There was nothing more that waited for me in this world.
Then something happened. Something that only happens in stories; 'transported to a fantasy world'. Good thing I had all of my avatar's abilities... only, that wasn't actually a good thing. The fundamental problem still persisted. So long as I had these powers, this curse of emptiness would likely never lift. The thing I had to do was change my 'perspective'.
I could live like an invincible tyrant... but no. instead of doing what I wanted and living like a petulant God, for now I decided to 'partake' in this world's history.
I'm an actor, a Planner, Manipulator and this world's Demigod. My hands alone move the fate of the world. So then, as the conductor I shall weave the symphony of this world.
"With the world as our stage, let us weave an exciting tale of heroes and villains. I shall play the part of the villain and fight against the world."

I wrote a review on the original so I am gonna write it hear as well. Honestly I haven't read this version but since the author said it isn't that different I will probably wont change my mind. Ok I think the MC is amazing I like him, I like how he always plans ahead. But I think the world build is lacking I don't think that it is that unique. I have been reading Spectral Regalia and the world build there is amazing I can't say the same for the MC tho and I think this is better than Spectral Regalia overall but I think that this novel could use the world build of that novel and that novel could use the MC of this novel. I think I would've rated 5/5 if the world build wasn't so.....cliche? I guess you could say that.
