Just binged through the first 15 chapters and am throughly impressed. The story takes unique spin on the LITRPG style with a underpowered main character who is slowly clawing his way to power. The world from what I have read so far has been thought out with a couple foreshadowing points already being dropped. Altogether the story shows great potential and the best part about it is the lack of grammatical errors. I am really looking forward to where this story goes!
I have a big problem with the whole everything respawns mechanic in your game. That essentually means the world is honestly unchanging. It might go through cycles but those will never alter. That makes this world no real different from a standard mmo in the fact that you can really change nothing. Some big bad guy has shown up to capture the princess and cast the land in darkness. Killing him, or her, stops nothing. That villian and all his henchmen down to the lowest goblin will simply respawn on a set timer with all their previous memories. If you don't stop the villian and he conquers or kills off the world everyone that dies still respawns with all of their memories. In the end all you create is an apathetic world with no point or consequence. Once I read that line about EVERYTHING being imortal in the game I simply stopped ready. It completely ruined any sense of tension or progress that might be in the story. In this utterly unchangeable world the story to be the top player would in all truth be no different then a novel about becoming the top player in Call of Duty.
Writing is good, no blatant mistakes, interesting premise and story so far.
Only through chapter 3 so far. The action is written well and dialogue is easy to follow. A basic world build through the chapters I have read. Not enough yet to tell if I like the characters but a lot better then whats out currently.
