Reincarnated as a Troll in a Dark Fantasy World
A troll wakes up in the "forest of beginning" of a fantasy world with only faint memories of his past human life and unable to speak. The human realm will spare no expense to bring down this monstruous threat. While clinging to his humanity, the troll must use his cunning and modern knowledge to survive and evade the hunters.
It is a dark age in a world of swords and magic, ruled by superstition and iron-clad rules. Tradition and conformity are the absolute cornerstones of society. There is no calendar, people count time by seasons, or days. Death, famine and vicious monsters are everywhere. People clutch in their communities, afraid of what is outside. Here and there, a Hero rises, his tale brief like a shooting star.
Powerful monsters that drift too close to human's realm must be eradicated at any cost, or society might crumble. The Troll comitted this sin.
This "isekai' LitRPG novel is an experiment in writing. We commit to the "Adventure" and "Fantasy" genres, but it might have comedy, romance, and both dark and light tones.
Some events in this novel are drawn from random encounter generators and others are decided on a die roll just like a tabletop RPG. Things take a unpredictable tone!

The Story does have a great start and slows down, but once you get past that it's a good read. As a Binge reader the world says the same over the Arcs, most Web Novels don't have that but it is a good sign if one does. Even if the story isn't your style it is a good read when bored.
This story has a lot of good ideas behind it and does some exiting things with the tropes common to reincarnation and isekai stories. I love the characters, and having a troll as a protagonist just makes me happy. Also, the grammar is good enough to not be distracting which puts it above about half of the stories on this site, and I can confidently say that I will continue reading this story as it is for as long as the author keeps writing it.
However, it is not perfect, and most of its issues have to do with structure. At times I am not sure if the author knows where the narrative is going. This is somewhat explained by the use of random tables that the author rolls on for some of the plot points (which is a neat idea by the way), but even then, the story as a tendency to meander a bit. However, despite this challenge, the author clearly understands foreshadowing and has a strong understanding of what drives the characters. Also, judging from recent chapters, the author appears to be getting better which makes me excited to see how the rest of the story plays out and what changes might occur in potential rewrites.
Overall amazing read you know what your doing and it shows. Keep up the good work
Really liked the beginning but it stopped being interesting after he learned how to transform. With as much focus on the mc as the side characters it should be "Multiple Lead Characters" at this point.
Good story, want to read the full book when it's done
For me this is the real deal just a litlle bit confusing with the changing of POV withn't warning but it can be fixed and more clarity in the stats panel will be good too. nonethless i really like the plot and the story so far and hope it will continue
Story is great. Characters are interesting but by God does this writer need a proof reader!
5/5 it's fun. Went into this skeptical but the characters are really enjoyable and the story gripping. There are the occasional typos but I'm willing to overlook that.
Pretty damn good, a lot of the time to me the timeframes seem off, but it's getting better and probably just me misreading it.
While the chapters we're, well mediocre as of the first several, the writing has gotten a lot better by a very large amount, not like BEST STORY EVER level yet, but definetly a solid," Pretty Good." Level. As such, 5 stars because it's going good and author's trying his best.
Love the plot. Few grammar mistakes but that is easily fixed. When Grendel is ordering the monkeys around, I keep imagining them wearing Mafia style clothes ie. Suit, fedora, and sunglasses.
