This has a pretty good start - Funny and the 'co-stars' Cinnamon and Kryst are nice. Later on 'plot' rears its ugly head, and by the end there are definite outbreaks of 'Serious'. This isn't bad in itself, but it's hard to mix comedy and serious and in this case there is also a pacing problem. Early on you are given big hints that something like "Evil bun-bun grandfather* is maybe killing giant city-tree" may be in operation. But then the general slowness of the MC and a bunch of complications keep them from making any progress for chapter after chapter.
The MC starts with 'Unlucky in Love' literally in his character sheet, but by the time I finished reading he was well on the way to a harem. If I was the DM running his campaign, this would be the point at which Kryst caught an incurable disease and Cinnamon was kidnapped by pirates. At the least, he should have to spend character points to buy out his disadvantage.
* It might not actually be him.
This used to be a fun fantasy action-adventure isekai-style story.
Nowadays it's just erotica with the occasional slice of life.
It's like a mishappen fusion of two different stories that just happen to have the same characters.
Honestly, this is one of those few stories you keep coming back to once they go on hiatus.
Checking.. checking… checking….
Maybe this time, just maybe, there will a new chapter, an update, something, anything…
I really hope the author (Scott Cross) is ok.
I wish they would come back and continue this epic tale.. please
Ok... I really enjoyed this book.
I started off a bit sceptical at the beginning, wondering how it would go, but quickly found myself caught in Scott Cross' world.
While a bit shaky at the beginning, the author quickly manages to find a style and it gets more fluent as the story goes on, allowing us to experience the story alongside the main character.
Though a bit slow in some places the story has some amazing potential.
I hope to see this story continued (and one day finished) and would advise readers to read a bit before they decide whether they like it or not.
It started strong but after more than 30 chapters it slowed down, the update rate also not helping burning off momentum of chapters. The story needs to pick up its direction again to give it a sense of purpose. The slice of life was a good break after the previous arcs but the Author drags it a little bit much.
Spoon feeding the story too much with fluffs and erotic situation risk the story losing it's purpose and direction.
grammaer wise I have no problem reading it, there was no jarring tenses that make you feel like they were placed at the wrong time.
as for character, I've got to say I love how the Author unfold the characters' background throughout the chapters instead of blasting the readers with background info. They are colorful and expressive as you expect them to be without acting unaturally.
Hopefully the Author will pick up this again soon cause I like reading it.
Story was really good. The caharcters draw you in to read all of it.
Not too many chapters so far, but the story hooks you immediately with a very relatable MC. The action starts right away and the gaming system is really comprehensive and fun. To add more fun there is humor and the start of a great harem element as well.
I can see this one going to the top of the charts very quickly.
Really nice POV. Great gaming system 5/5
Really clean, but a few small errors here and there but great flow and descriptions. 4.5/5
So far so freaking Good! 5/5 (Will adjust as the story goes along)
Really nice characters. Looking forward to seeing how they develop 5/5
A really cool new ficiton with tons of potential and a really comprehensive and unique gaming system. Fans of old school D&D and table top games will be in for a treat. Very accessible.
I really like this story, I picked it up when i first started a couple years ago and liked it. I kept it on my list through the hiatuses and gaps and it was defintely worth it to keep following.
The characters are interesting and likeable, and the relationships between them are fun to read about.
The world is interesting and unique, throwing together a handful of fantasy/scifi genres pretty smoothly.
Definitely give this story a try!
A pretty nice story involving D&D aspects. The only thing leaving me a bit wanting is the weird romance and the occasional spellings mistake, but nothing major.
Title says it I have one chapter to review based on, my review will get more elaborate and have more specifics when there is more to review. The author despite having one chapter already demonstrated a first grasp of english grammar which makes me already a fan, plus it's litrpg and I'm looking forward to reading another. Good luck.
