Lord Archlich "Boss", the greatest undead of all time, could conquer the world with his mighty collection of undead knights, dullahans, shadowlings, resurrected expired food, and skeletons. But that's too much work!

So why not just go tour the world which he had not set foot in for over a thousand years?

From the mighty Holy City of Aon which houses the greatest undead hunters in the entire continent to the mystical Sorcerer City-States, Boss will tour them all!

Hide your artifacts, hide your religious sites, hide your long-held traditional values - Boss will ruin them all unknowingly!

On a site where even some of the best rated novels can give you a headache for how bad their grammar is (I'm looking at you AE) finding a good, well written, comedy story can really make your day and "Necro-Tourists: The Undead Living the Life" does just that.

 

 Everything else you need to know is that thousand year olds, overpowered undead want to have fun going around the world and they do just that and it's hilarious.

Please tell me I'm not the only one who keeps visualizing Ainz Ooal Gown form Overlord.

It fits so well, OP skeleton with a over loyal minons.

Tourism done seriously

A comedy about a bunch of OP shut-in misfits leaded by a bonehead, and I love it.

Wealth, romance, opinions: you don't care if you are undead. You have other priorities, like touring, according to the author and the MCs. So if you tour, you have to be dead serious about it. Misunderstandings, shamelessness, obtrusion: you name it, that will happen.

Characters are depicted well enough to feel empathy for them. The author uses tourism to force them to move on quickly enough. Bad jokes may happen. Seriously bad bandwidth-wasting illustrations will happen. But who cares? Not the author. It's funny, readable, and enjoyable.

Excellent Blend Between Adventure and Comedy

Reviewed at: The Games Arc Epilogue: Touring Unimpeded!

Necrotourists is a very good blend of a comedy and an adventure, with each element enhancing the other.

The premise of the story is that an ancient and extremely powerful undead gets bored of effectively being a 'dungeon boss' and decides to go on an adventure will all his friends. Being undead and very much out-of-touch with the state of the world, his misadventures result in lots of entertaining chaos.

The humor is without a doubt the highlight of the story. The story utilizes a few different types of humor, and balances them well. The humor is often part of the dialogue or character reactions to settings and events rather than just being jokes, making it well integrated into the story. 

The worldbuilding is also a highlight, and is connected to the effectiveness of the humor. A lot of the humor derives from the fact that the main character remembers a fairly standard fantasy world, but the current world is very different in some strange ways that endeavor to satirize or reject a variety of common tropes.

The main and supporting characters are sufficiently defined, being a diverse group with their own quirks and peculiarities, which are taken full advantage of by the story. The style is generally good, but can sometimes be a bit confusing, with transitions being a bit that could be improved. The story is generally well-edited, but this could also be improved a bit as well.

I would recommend this story.

(As of Games Arc Epilogue)

The strange adventure of an undead archlich and his many minions, as they set out to... be the best tourists they can be.

Grand plots, heroic adventures? Heck with that, there are pictures to be taken, and holy water spas to relax in. This is a strange, meandering, very funny, adventure. Props to the author for including artwork and some pretty creative methods of pushing the story along.

Original and Bloody Brilliant

Honestly the best comedy story I've read to date. The characters are so (un)(lol)life-like, and the misunderstandings are perfectly possible. This story executes itself superbly well and I honestly wouldn't believe this the work of an amateur writer from its grammar, flow, and style. 

On top of all this, the story is wonderfully unique, especially on a site so focused on OP RPG mc's and the like.

I am up to date as of current (The third chapter of the Kingdom of Angolia arc) and am feverently looking forward to updates to the story.

Adsterhappy creates a comedy equal parts reminiscent of Overlord and Kingdom of Loathing, and you can expect it to take you on a journey into the most unexpected of the familiar. After a thousand years of boredom, an Archlich Boss and his minions are ready to strike out and see the world, only to find... well, you'd have to read it to believe it.

Characters each make strong impressions with their unique quirks, and the only one to constantly forget names among the ensemble cast will be the protagonist himself. The lightheartedness of the series very naturally lends itself to humor, the action scenes are fun to read, and overall you can expect to facepalm, cringe, and finally turn to other readers to ask, "Did Adsy seriously just...?" If that isn't everything you ever wanted out of a story, then you're probably doing it wrong.

Every arc feels like the script of a new Monthy Python sketch.

The humor is on point and the characters are not only likeable but downright loveable.

Barely Even Started and Already Love It

This story is hillarious.

I've only just finished the second major story arc and have gone from giggling to gut busting laughter many times already.

If you're really familiar with most fantasy, hero and villain tropes, then you'll really enjoy how Adsterhappy crushed them, tossed them in an over and baked you something new and delicious.

The first arc is rough and ridiculous. Just finished the second arc and what happened to the dwarves will have you wanting to flip a table over in outrage and wonder.

Really looking forward to reading more and seeing how many more sacred cows get sacrificed to the Altar of Unintentional Chuckles.
