Original ONGOING Action Fantasy Multiple Lead Characters
Warning This fiction contains:
  • Gore
  • Profanity
  • Traumatising content

Scyria was a harsh world, where death came swiftly for the weak and foolish alike, but at least it was stable.  Societies matured, knowledge improved, and slowly, one tiny step at a time, life got better.  As tough as the world could be, the people of Scyria could at least look forward to the fact that each upcoming year would be a little better than the last.

Then they showed up: people from another world, thrown into this one for reasons that neither they nor the natives of the realm can discern.  This is the story of these trespassers, and the people of Scyria, as their arrival sunders the fragile order and plunges the world into a chaos unlike any it has ever seen.

Multi-lead characters story is both good and...?

At chapter 30. 

The world building is a little slow and confusing ( multi-lead characters each start in different parts of the world).   But by chapter 30 i'm sold on this world.  The magic is interesting and different but feels like it has a solid system behind it.  The world feels big  messy and interesting.  Each of the MCs feel unique, and have their own voices.  

The Author is building a big complex world and switches between different MC.  Personally i'm not a huge fan of switching from one character to another.  But now that i've gotten to know Rudra, Blake, Arlette, and Sofie, i like them just fine.  It was just a little rough going.

Almost didn't continue, but its still really good.

I won't lie, shifting the focus off of one main character to a whole new one only a few chapters in really had me questioning why I should read more. Especially when its been around 8 or so chapters without word of the old one (who I still prefer #BringBackBlake :P ) but ,well, I guess you need to introduce characters however you want and we're finally getting there so its OK. 

Story: 4/5 For now there's 1 star off because its just SO, SO JARRING when the main character seems to take a step back for another main character who is just... less interisting, less talented, less action-packed, less emotive. Its really annoying after the reader invests themselves, and I suspect a lot of readers will have dropped the story for a while after a few chapters without a hint of the first MC, hopefully now that they know they'll see him again people will stick with it, but I know I nearly didn't.

Style: 4.5/5 0.5 off because that MC swicheroo stuff still really annoyed me, and I just don't like Sophie as much as Blake. I mean goddamn that last chapter with Blake was just PERFECT, I hadn't felt emotion like that from a story on RRL since /that/ chapter from Gamer of the Dead, and thats saying something. Stylistic choices otherwise are great and it flows very well. Loving it.

Grammar: 5/5 Perfect, 'nuff said.

Character: 5/5 Blake is so good, I guess Sophie could be as good one day, eitherway your characters are  3 dimensional so far, so its 5/5 here. I mean for me the MC is still Blake but even in the few chapters I've seen of him so far there was a LOT of characterisation which I loved.

Overall: 5/5 Love it, just almost didn't lol. Thankfully it seems like we might be seeing more of my favourite character soon so that's nice. Maybe an idea would be interspersing some Blake chapters amongst all the Sophia ones, because going from one to the other for such a long stretch was not very enjoyable.

Why isn't this in the top 10?

I do not review often.  When I do it is because the story is something special.  The quality of this story is up there with professional writers I count as my favorites, for example: Jim Butcher, L. E. Modesitt Jr, Brandon Sanderson, Anne Mcaffery, and Mercedes Lackey.  While thie story style has the danger of following the path of George RR Martin, who while good at first turns into a crapfest of character juggling and a complete lack of progress, which is what I believe turns off many readers from this author, those who have those concerns should take note that the individual times spent in a POV grow in length and the story has grown more coherent, not less. That this story is not in the top ten on this site reminds me of the old adage that people are stupid little shits.  

I strongly urge IrateRapScallion, should you read my review, to keep writing.  I love your work and want to see more of it.  If you publish I will buy your stories and share them with my family and friends so that they too can enjoy your worlds.

Would say this is among the best stories on this site.

 

One of the best qualities of this story is just writing, and it is seriously well written.

Not only that, but theres a actual interesting world all built up, the differences between it and Earth, the ecology, the nations in the world and especially the powers and the different kinds of powers one can have.

 

But the thing where this story does truly excel are its characters.

There are a lot of actual characters that you can feel with, and every new perspective switch does reveal a LOT of suprising information. None of the characters are actually perfect,  they have a quite large amount of flaws, but that makes me like them even more.

A problem could be through that the first character shown in the story is one of the most likeable, and that the pov switch can turn some people off.

 

I seen zero problems with grammar, which says much about the author and the editor, keep it on!

 

So overall, id recommend to read this story, and atleast keep trying even if you reach a point you do not like, it will improve.

To be frank, most of the stuff on this website sucks bad. Most people don't bother to proofread, have stories entirely comprised of cliche and wish fulfillment, and/or just really need to learn how to read before they try writing anything at all. Occasionally, though, the gods of Roalroad come through, and deliver upon a special few the blessing of grammar and plot. Congratulations! You don't suck! Your characters aren't a poorly made facsimile of a cardboard cutout. Your language is accessible, and your setting, while somewhat... commonfare (not that I mind. I love this shit) is more well developed than 99% of other "Isekai" stories I've read in the past. You have writing skills, humor, fanatic religious empires, a (presumably) interesting system of magic, and a main character that (hopefully) behaves like a human being from this point forward (there are only 3 chapters out, so it's difficult to gauge consistency). I could see this in publication, man. You've got skillz, and I'll definitely be reading.

Edit: Spoiler

This is one of my favorite stories on all of Royal Road. The author puts a lot of work into his wide range of characters. Personally I disliked it when it shifted away to new characters after a few chapters but now many chapters later I appreciate the characters more than ever.

The world is interesting and the magic varied but the characters are where this story shines. Non of them are two dimensonal or copy pasted trope architypes.

For those who are worried about the story after the first 5-8 chapters don't fret! The rest of the story only improves. I implore you to continue if you liked the first chapters the rest only gets better!

I started reading this story due to an amazing action scene way into it. I was hooked right after. It does have some slow moments due to switching between points of view, but if you persevere, you will be rewarded with a well thought story of fleshy characters and interesting interactions. The good news is that it all connects and doesn't bring out some deux ex machina moment into it. If you are into fulfilling stories with adventure then you'll like this a lot. The author is quick on fixing grammar and interacting to comments as well so I gave him a 5 on that too since he fixes quick. Realistically, a lot of stories have some grammar issues, but this wont hinder the reading. You'll come to love Jaquet too I hope as his wee personality touches your belly. Would definitely buy a book if there is one in the future! Keep it up Irate!

How Multiple Leads are Done

I have been following this story for a long time and it has always struck me as odd that this never became more popular. The mind boggles that a book so engaging and well thought out, never took off. I strongly urge everyone who wants a true experience of what fantasy and multiple leads is to read this. Now onto the actual review.

Style score 5/5:

IrateRapScallion draws you into his world like few can ever dream of achieving. Whether through elaborate plans of world domination or a fight for social equality the author makes you fall in love with the characters. 

Story score 4/5:

With a rather long and slow set-up this might put some off. However in recent chapters as the initial introductory arc wrapped up, we begin to get a glimpse into the machinations of all the powers. IrateRapScallion seems to have a rather ambitious story in the works unfolding to reveal a world more deep and rich than what one could have hoped for.

Grammer score 5/5:

More perfect than a crystal at absolute zero.

Character score 5/5:

This is where IrateRapScallion truely shines. It has been a long a time since I've read a book which can have its characters so likeable yet flawed but without being too flawed. It's an art a paltry few can hope can hope to have and use. The perfect balance, which can't be easy considering the sheer number of different characters IrateRapScallion is juggling is something that must be savoured while one can.

Overall score 5/5:

A tiny disclaimer here: this story is not for everyone. But for those who are used to having a huge and diverse set of protagonists, one should not pass up this chance to read what I consider to be one of the best works that can be found on this site.

It is always a joy to see that authors share their passion of writing and weaving compelling, fantastic stories.

Grammarscore: No errors found.

Stylescore: The storytelling is rich.

Characterscore: The characters feel realistic and evoke compassion from the reader.

Thanks for giving us your story and time!

Reminds me of Discworld

Moral Compass: 5/5.  Yes, it's a crapsack world, all of the characters are seriously flawed - ESPECIALLY the good ones, and yet, you won't feel depressed after reading this.  It reminds me of Ank Morpork of Discworld - sure, the world is horrible and stinky, but somewhere out there a bunch weirdos trying to do the right thing anyway.

Premise:  Instead of one "MC" the author shows favoritism towards, there are SIX "MCs", each of which are surrounded by 2+ "Side Characters", and the author shows no favoritism towards any of them.

Enjoyability: It is truly impressive that the author is able to flesh out not only each of the "MC"s, but 2+ "side characters" surrounding EACH of the "MC"s, while also developing the world. Each backstory is relevant to the ongoing plot - there are no useless or wasted details.  Even the morality pets are brilliantly distinct from eachother. [Response to author: No, THAT girl would make a TERRIBLE morality pet.  Imagine if Blake adopted her instead!]

Memorability: There is only one character who has a name that's hard to remember, but that's only because the author changed his name on us.  Each character has a different world view, environment, and genre, so they are surprisingly easy to keep track of.

Conclusion: This isn't 5 stars because it's the type of amateur trash I happen to enjoy, this is 5 stars because this is objectively novel quality.
