One day the entire world fell asleep at the same time. No matter who or where, all people fell into a deep slumber. During that singular moment, a single dream was shared between the disparate members of humanity. It was a dream about creating a new life in a new world. Many people died during the first dream. Drivers crashed their vehicles. Surgeons collapsed atop their patients. Workers fell from rooftops, and many others met their end during the time that the first dream was forced upon humanity.

Despite the tragedy of that day, the strangely videogame like nature of that dream and the world presented therein has caught the world in a web of interest and intrigue. One young man, decides to change his life by living for that strange new world and its untapped possibilities.

Change the Picture Please!!!!!

This is a quality work for real. I like the imagination of the author and the style.

But the picture on the main page is a major turn off as it looks like a uber ugly drawing and that my friend kept me away from your work for a very long time. If only I was not bored I would have not touched this page at all and I would have missed this good story. Please do get another picture for your work as it will continue to make others like me to stir away from your story.

Other than that I appreciate the work very much and it is entertaining in its own way. Not for all and not for the nitpicking freaks out there. Please continue writing and hopefully you will finish it as the number of good story writers going AWOL in RL is very high and I would hate to see that happening to you.

 

Sincerely,

A fan and A well wisher.

This makes me slightly regretful

I have read a lot of this author's work and it took me a while to decide to read the rewrite for this one but I finally did it. 

I think one problem that plagues ALL of this writer's works is the harem. Once it begins the story that's to go downhill and whatever interesting aspect about it is shoved to the side. 

My problem with blackthorne is one, the protagonist and two, the women. The protagonist has depth and that is a good thing. However apart from that, he seems to be a nothing more than a pushover. And from what I can tell, that character trait isn't going to change. Actually perhaps because I have read this author's previous works and blackthorne, before and after rewrite, I can tell he will remain so. 

Now my problem with the women is self-explanatory. Cookie cutters all over the damn place. The plot/background of the story is quite good and if the author were to focus on it instead of squeezing his wish fulfillment of a harem into it, this story would go places. Unfortunately, we're stuck with this.

Great start, then deteriorates rapidly

 It started so well: a somewhat novel premise, an interesting world to explore, character development waiting to happen...

And then it all went downhill. It turns out that this is very much a wish fulfillment fic. Things don't happen for consistent, logical reasons; they happen because it makes the MC badass.

The MC is a classic nice guy doormat, and the girls keep throwing themselves at him anyway. He's super awkward; the [gentleman of darkness] title is downright cringeworthy.

Also, he just happens to find OP loot in an improbably underleveled place, despite this making no sense in-story.

So much potential. I should have picked up on the red flags. In the end, I think it's simply the author shining through his character. Sigh.

Was good but went downhill like so many others series on RR.

Loved the start but the harem and the real world interactions ruined it.

Was Good, Sucks Balls Now

It starts out very strong but then it veers into a weird harem version of itself. It has become boring, predictable and very cringey.

Seriously! This could have been as good as Metaworld Chronicles but it turned into a worse version of middle story Randidly Ghosthound.

Very, very disappointing.

I wrote this review for a reddit thread that was deleted before I could post.

The story is fairly decent but this author is somewhat notorious (to me anyway) on RR. Scottf14 has a few other successful series, Origin A.R.S and Nocturne for instance, and all of them seem to follow the same basic story shape. A really cool RPG world is built and then the male 20s-30s hero falls in love with one or more women but never has intimate relations with any of them. That isn't necessarily a character flaw but these adult male main characters are written more like shy blushing 13 year old boys or else some weird vision of masculinity that constantly flirts and goes to 1st or 2nd base but is unable to comprehend how adult relationships work.


I got about halfway through blackthorne before realizing it is an author that generally disappoints me. This might be just what you're looking for if you like fantasy RPG style stories that randomly get disrupted by young adult style romance storylines for chapters at a time.

A diamond among mud

Have to say. This story had few views, but I got dragged in by the number of chapters, since I had nothing better to do and this amount of chapters were bound to kill some time.

I had very little expectations when I started reading and I was pleasantly surprised. The story is well paced, with a main character who is free spirited yet reasonable enough to be a convincing person, as opposed to howo some stories make those super heroic or intelligent characters that have no excuse to be like that considering that half of them are normal people.

And though there is no real main story fleshed out so far, I'd say there doesn't have to be one. In my educated opinion, those kind of stories about new worlds should focus more around the character exploring rather than a big bad or some main great objective. It is fun to explore and learn for no reason other than curiosity, and if some sort of main story starts to form in the middle of this exploration, then so be it. 

Basically, I strongly recommend you to give it a try. It really grows on you after the first 2 chapters.

Basically, I came for the number of chapters, stayed for the quality.

decent but gets old

Slight spoiler for the book, barely. I got to chapter 19 before I hit the point where the I couldn't stand reading about the voices in his head any longer. It's referenced almost every single chapter and it's barely elaborated on. I know it's supposed to be a bit of a mystery and getting rid of them will be a big moment of triumph but wow I couldn't stand it anymore. I don't know if I've seen a protagonists weakness/flaw be that annoying to read about before.

Several others have mentioned this but the foundation of the story is really good.  However, it diverts to being all about the harem and I ended up just skipping chapters to get back to the main storyline.  Unfortunately, it eventually became unreadable for me.  For those of you who are looking for a little story with a lot of graphic and ridiculous harem play, this is the one for you.  If you are more interested in content, I recommend you spend your time elsewhere.
